Also, you may have noticed the better quality of pictures (except for the first two, it was dark). We finally got a new camera. It was for Christmas but when you are Santa you can open your presents whenever you want so there!! It is a Nikon L100 and we got it for 92 bucks! It is so nice and we love it! Our other camera was a piece!
with this guy!! Full of giggles and kisses. Nothing gets better!
This picture is from the other day. He took my rice cake and a few minutes later we looked at him laughing because he looked like an orphan with food all over his face, a snotty nose, one sock and no pants. At least he is a cute orphan!
We decided to do some yard work. It was more of a project than expected of course but here are some pictures of the ... "Journey" This is before we started.
Cutting down the bushes. I think I already posted some of these pictures but they are more fun with the yard work post, so lucky you, you can see them again!
Good job Daddy! I am trying to look at the camera but I just can't get myself to look there.
You would think from this picture that Alex raked up all the leaves, but I did. TWICE!
This is after day two of yard work. This is the second time I racked up leaves. I was going to take a picture of all the bags of leaves that we got up but our ultra kind neighbor hauled them off for us. Cute huh! I think we had about five of those big huge leaf bags. The chain saw wasn't working too well for the bushes. This was the part I am talking about when I said more work than expected. So we looked around and it was pretty inexpensive to rent an excavator and of course Alex was excited about that.
Kade loved the excavator just as much as his Dad did!!
Aren't my boys so cute?!?! uh... I mean manly?? (They are on an excavator)
This is after. We are going to make it look nice in the spring with out those awful old people bushes in the front. But at least they are gone now! You know that sniffy face Kade used to make? It turned into his fake whiny face. This is what he does when he is pretending to cry. Its too bad that it makes us laugh instead of rescuing him.
I probably shouldn't allow him to do that, but it was so cute watching him take out one and a time, bang it against the entertainment center and then pick a new DVD. Oh the simple pleasures of being a mom.
This is Kade's new favorite thing. He scrunches his face up like this and then breathes in and out really quick. Its makes me laugh every time, which makes him do it again. What a funny boy I have! I am loving this big personality that keeps getting bigger and bigger everyday!
I never updated on the sleeping situation. The next night I thought that maybe he was waking up because he was cold. He would kick of his blankets in his sleep and then he got cold and woke up. Once he was awake I guess he decided to play. ha! I would wait for him to fall asleep so I could cover him up again. I wrote that post in the middle of the night while I was waiting for him to fall back asleep so maybe thats why I was so annoyed haha! Anyways, I fixed it by putting two pairs of Jammie's on his, plus socks and then a heavier blanket that is harder to kick off. He slept so much better the next night. And has been ever since. (Except while out of town, but I am sure you all know how that goes!) Anyways, Friday night he slept 12.5 hours! That kid amazes me. OK I said pictures so here you go!
So since Kade has gotten more mobile he is all over in his crib. You might not think its that funny since all your kids have done it too, but I think it is hilarious how he falls asleep in so many different ways.
Cousin bath time! I wouldn't call it crawling, but Kade scoots around everywhere backwards! This is him stuck under the futon. Yes I am mean and had to take a picture before rescuing him ha! Its cute how frustrated he gets when he gets stuck. Best buds! Victory! I cut down ONE of the stupid bushes! Eating crackers. This is a castle we went to while in Colorado Springs. It was really cool inside. Its from the late 1800's. Marne even got a ghost picture! :) This was in Manatoo Springs. (Sp?) Spring water... not so yummy. It tastes like really stale sprite. Or even worse! Marne' likes the spring water! (She's crazy!) This was at the mall in Colorado Springs. This guy was trying to sell Sarah at back massager thing. It was so funny to us. And the best part was the Michael Jackson wanna be in the back haha!
Kade loves water bottles. But you can't fool him with an empty one! Looking in the mirror. Kade finally learned how to roll over! At 7 months! Now he is all over the place! Hence the funny sleeping pictures!
We have been married since August of 2006 and we love it! We have two perfect little boys. Kade was born 4-10-09 and Cardon was born 12-12-10. Right now we live in Ogden and we are really happy here. Alex is working at Macey's, schooling, and bishopric-ing so he stays pretty busy. I am trying to keep up with my little boysKade, TRYING to keep a our home clean :), and I work a little bit from home while my boysare sleeping. We are happy as can be!
