Finally an update for any of those who are still checking my blog. Halloween this year was a lot of fun. Boston had so much fun with painting and carving pumpkins, making Halloween sugar cookies, and dressing up like a pirate. We asked him a month before Halloween what he wanted to be for Halloween and he chose a Pirate so he can have a sword. I always stress over costumes (my stress over costumes makes this Holiday my least favorite) but my mom was a life saver this year. Nick and I went costume shopping and didn't have much luck. My mom came to the rescue and put his costume together. A little bit of  frugal shopping at DI and a little sewing (two things she is very good at) and voila the custest little pirate ever. Kolson was easy, he wore the frog costume Boston wore a few years ago. He was a very cute frog and wore it the whole night without a fight.

The best part of making cookies is licking the beaters. This is Kolson's first beater experience, it was a hit.
Halloween night we went trick or treating with Nick's brother and his family. They live in the best neighborhood for trick or treating, tons of houses and close together. In Boston's own words he got "plenty of candy." He had so much fun running from house to house until he got worn out trying to keep up with his 5 year old cousin Bryndee. He and Kloee were such troopers.

My little 1 year old

This little boy has grown up way to fast. I can't believe he is 1 today. Looking back at his newborn pictures makes me want to cry. He is such a sweet boy (he probably won't like that when he's older) and we have loved every minute of him in our lives (except night time minutes). I don't know how Boston ever lived without his little broter as he calls him. Hearing them play and giggle together is the best noise, and it makes me giggle just watching them laugh at each other.

I love cuddling with this little boy and am afraid I don't have to much longer of it. Boo hoo.

Happy Birthday Kolson!!!!

We're still alive

I apologize for the lack of blogging and leaving you all hanging. I've had some hate notes and phone calls about getting back on the blogging wagon. I'm ready and have a few posts that I will be working on for the next couple of days. Anyways for those who don't know we moved to Teton Valley. Nick still has his same job. The housing prices went down here over the last year and Nick has somebody to car pool with here. It has been a good move for us. When it's time to go home after spending the weekend with family Boston asks are we going to our old house or the fun house. I think I'm safe to say it has been a good move for him.

Kolson was such a trooper when we moved. He fell asleep in his jumper which is very unheard of.

The boys had so much fun playing in the boxes. Boston made a train with all the empty boxes.

Friday Night Movie Night

I love our movie nights. Nick started it with Boston when we first moved here. It has been a while since we have had one due to us being out of town for the past few weekends and not having any good movies to watch. We watched Bedtime stories and loved it. Very funny.

Popcorn + Lemon Lime Kool Aid + Chocolate Chip Cookies + Movies + Boston = Contentment

April? SERIOUSLY!!!!

I am done with all this snow. Sadly I might have to deal with it for another 2 months.

This is looking out our front door. Does our driveway look a little deep? I don't care I am done shoveling snow for the year. (Good thing Nick has four wheel drive)

Kid pics

The kids did suprisingly good with these pictures. I thought it was going to be a nightmare. We only had a few break downs, but nothing a sucker couldn't take care of.

This last weekend we went home to get away from the snow. Silly that we go to Idaho to get away from the snow but compared to Wyoming, Idaho has nothing. The plan was for us to go Friday night after Nick got off work but Boston and I were getting major cabin fever and were ready to get out of here sooner so Jordan and Kenny picked us up Wednesday night, which I was so grateful to them for doing that. We didn't want to have two vehicles in Idaho, especially if it snowed over the weekend (I don't like driving in the snow, especially through Palisades). We had a great time while we were there. Saturday night we decided that we really wanted to take Boston bowling. He had so much fun and he did so good. I was nervous he was going to be a little wild and that I was going to have to help him each time it was his turn, but he was so independent and mature about it.

Boston was so funny. He usually runs from the camera when I pull it out but he was totally posing with his orange bowling ball. He keeps telling me he wants to go bowling again with his orange ball.

I don't know if you can tell from this picture but Nick is on the first screen initials NT with a score of 63. Boston is on the second screen BB with a score of 65 and SG with a score of 80 (Boston played in place of Grandma Sherry, she'd rather watch Kolson then bowl, duh). Yes he kicked his dad's butt. Nick was kind of having an off night to say the least. And then there's me, AS at 112. I think that is probably my best score. I was winning until I choked on the 10th frame. Kenny came from behind to win. Oops, Jordan did get a higher score than me but that doesn't count when using bumpers, sorry Jord. And I do have to add my dad did very well. It's been years since he has bowled and Iwas actually impressed and surprised. When I told him I was surprised by how good he was my mom had to add, "I'm not. He has big muscles" oh gosh mom.

And I can't forget our cute little crazy haired Kolson. He was so good the whole time.

Kelsey didn't get to go bowling with us because she had the Valentine's dance at school. She looked so pretty. I'm proud to say she's my sister for so many reasons, not just because she's so cute.

Kolson update/first hair cut

This post is way past due, I've been working on it for a week now but better late than never. Kolson had his well baby check appt last Tuesday. I believe it was suppose to be his 3 month check but he is now 5 months. I'm a little behind and am playing catch up now with his shots. He weighs 15 lbs. 12 oz. (50 percentile) and is 26 3/4 in. He is a very healthy little boy and is growing like a weed. Before I know it he is going to be a little toddler running around with Boston. So sad, but I am also excited for Boston to have somebody to play with or fight with (hopefully more play).

Kolson had his first hair cut a couple of weeks ago. He just had a little trim off the top (not that noticeable). Firsts are always such a big step for me in my kids lives. They are always kind of bitter sweet moments.


I Just had to add this picture. He was playing with his feet while I was getting a before pic and I think it is so cute when babies play with their feet. Boston never could touch his feet because he was such a chubby or he just wasn't flexible enough.


Haha, I don't know if you can see the hair that well, not much
there but thought I would share anyways.
