9 Months!

I can't believe that Cole is already 9 months old, time is just going by way to fast. He is now crawling every where, pulling himself up and walking around furniture. He'll even stand all by himself, he did take a couple of steps while we were on vacation but has yet to want to do it again. He definitely has a mind of his own, as he is getting older I have discovered that he is very stubborn child.
I love to watch him crawl after his big brothers trying to keep up with them, I'm afraid he'll be bored once they are in school. Coles favorite person is his daddy, his face just lights up when he hears Daves voice and he gets all excited when Dave comes in the room. He can't get to daddy fast enough!
This little guy sure keeps me on my toes we have to keep all the doors to the bathrooms closed otherwise we will find him in there either playing in the toilet, the trash can or unrolling the toilet paper. He loves to be busy!

Fun times........

Our good friends the Ritchies came into town and were able to stay with us for a week. We had a great time, between the two families there were 9 kids so we stayed busy trying to keep them all entertained. We were able to go Slide Rock on one of the days they were in town, I haven't been there in years but it was just as fun as I remember it. It took a little bit for the kids to warm up to it but once they did they all had a great time, even the two babies loved crawling around on the rocks and playing in the water.
It is was so fun to have them here, our kids always had someone to play with and I loved having someone to hang out with all the time. I haven't stayed up late and laughed like that in a long time. The time went by way to fast and I didn't take near enough pics!

Happy Birthday Babe!

I just want to wish Dave a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! He just turned 29 again, I must say that I think he just gets better with age. Babe you are my best friend and I am so lucky to have you as my husband. I love the fact that you are still a kid at heart, and that you can still make me laugh. I hope you have a wonderful day! We love you!

Free Photo Shoot!

I just wanted to let everyone know that during the month of August my brother-in-law that does all of our photos, is offering a free photo shoot. There is a little catch but it's so worth the photos. He does an awesome job, if you are interested check out his web page through the NL Photography link on my blog.

4TH of July!

For the 4TH of July we always head up to Holbrook, AZ. I love being there for the 4Th, we always go to the fireman's BBQ and then that night watch the fire works up close and personal. This year it was also Dave's family reunion, so we had a fun time hanging out with the family. The girls got to decorate flip flops and the boys got to make marshmallow guns, I don't think that my mother-in-law appreciated that were marshmallow all over her house, but the boys had a great time. We also tie dyed shirts for all of the younger kids, which actually turned out pretty well. This was Cole's first fire works show and since we are really close to where they are set off it gets pretty loud, so I wasn't sure how he would react.
He did great he didn't even jump when they went off, it was great, he just sat and stared at them. It was so fun to watch his expressions.
The 4Th is one of my favorite holidays, and I love to spend it in Holbrook, I just love the small town celebrations. The cooler weather and being able to spend some time with Daves family, we all had a great time!

New haircuts....

Okay so I was attempting to grow the boys hair out, but it was starting to drive Dave crazy. So I said it's either they continue to grow it out or it gets shaved off in behalf of our friend Chad who has lost all of his hair, due to chemo. Once I told the boys their options their answer was unanimous they wanted to shave it in support of Chad. Have I said how proud I am of my children and how much I love them? So here's to you Chad , we love you and our thoughts and prayers are always with you.
