A little change of pace...

Ok, so I know I said that I was going to catch up my blog with all of the old news, before moving on to the current things... but I HAVE to share these videos of Kaleb. He cracks us up everyday with his many Kalebisms and hilarious songs. I finally caught a few on camera!! He has been quite the singer lately. He sings at home, in the car, and walking through Target. He is not shy one bit!! I love that about him!!

This one is of him singing the theme song from transformers... his new obsession. If you aren't familiar with the words it goes like this...

Transformers, Roll out.
Transformers, Robots in disguise,
Transformers, more than meets the eye.

There is more to the song but that is Kaleb's version!!

TOO funny right!!

Here he is singing his ABC's. I know some kids know their ABC's at 3 because they have heard it their whole life. Well I used to try to sing it to Kaleb and he would scream... "I don't like that song!!!!" So, needless to say we got a late start. He is just now showing interest in learning them. This is what he has learned so far:

As for Karson, there is no video of him. He doesn't sit still long enough these days!! Here are the most recent pics though!! And yes I know he needs a haircut!!

And our little baby Koen is growing WAY too fast. He is about to make the move and become M*O*B*I*L*E!!!! I am SO sad. I want him to be a baby forever! Here he is rocking back and forth on his hands and knees.

Well... that's it for now!! Have a great day!!

Balloon Bonanza!!

Continuing on my mission to "catch up my blog" I am now up to August!! I hosted a balloon bonanza play date! I thought that this would be a really fun simple play date. Well, it turned out to be a little more stressful!! I think it is because of my obsession with perfection. I always try to go all out for these things. I never thought that a simple balloon play date would turn into a $100 play date!!! YIKES!! After the helium tank rental, balloons, ribbon, balloon weights, and snacks it was pretty expensive for a few hours of fun. The kiddos LOVED it though, and a ton of mommies came!! I was so glad to see such a good turn out.
I made Matt help me blow up all of the balloons!!! He is such a great husband!!

Here are some pics from the fun day!!

Kaleb running through all of the balloons!!

Kaleb, Karson, and Tyler... so cute!!

Kaleb, Tyler, Parker, and Jackson playing!!

Some of the mommies and kiddos!

This was after everyone left...Karson was holding all of the balloons!
I'm surprised he didn't float away!!

Happy Fourth Of July!!! Ok, so I'm a little late...

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! Yeah so it was two months ago... It's been crazy! Haha! I just wanted to share the pictures from this years 4th!!

We had a great day! We started off by heading to my parents house for a family BBQ and swimming. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera for this! Bummer!!! But we had a ton of fun. Then we went to a friends house for about an hour and then headed to the park to watch the fireworks. Unfortunately, the fireworks that were supposed to start at 8:00 or 8:30... didn't start until like 10:00!!! There was a storm so they had to wait it out! All the while we were sitting in the middle of the park playing in the wind! It was almost a blessing, because it wasn't miserably hot this year. We were there with my brother and sister, their spouses, and ALL 10 kiddos!


Koen's 1st 4th!!


This is how Kaleb watched... he hates loud noises!

So pretty!!

Lots of catching up to do and a hungry baby!!

Wow... I don't even know where to start!! I am uploading pictures onto the computer as I type... and there are over three HUNDRED of them!! I have a ton to share... but I promise I will do it one blog at a time!! So check back soon and check back often! Hopefully I will get them all up!

I think I will start with the oldest and go from there. About three months ago we started Koen on baby food!! He didn't start until he was 6 months old... much later than the other two! Kaleb started at 4 months and my tank Karson had to start at 3 months!! They were both guzzling down 12 oz. by then!! Koen on the other hand was perfectly content with 6 oz. every 2 to 4 hours!! We started with rice cereal... as I think most babies do. He HATED it!! I don't think I got any in his little belly... but it made for a fun time and cute pictures!

Here he is eating his first bite!!

And of course big brothers had to be by side side for the big occasion!!

So cute!!

Here is proof that he was NOT eating this stuff!! Sorry it is sideways... I couldn't figure out how tot turn it!!

Now days he is devouring the stage two foods twice a day with no problem!! He also cut his first tooth last Wednesday!! He is growing up in fast forward right before my very eyes. With all of the craziness, I have to stop and remind myself to take pictures, and enjoy his baby days, because before I know it he will be ONE!!!
