Happy Halloween!

Since there is a Boise State game on Halloween this year we decided to stick with what we they will be wearing already. I just made Camden into a football and we were ready to go! Tiana wasn't to thrilled with the photo shoot and yesterday we discovered why... she was getting Camden's cold. Now we have three sick kids... hopefully they will be better by Halloween! Party photos will be coming soon, well as soon as I have a chance to sit back down at the computer!

Giggle giggle

Camden has been laughing now for about a month but we have had trouble getting it on video. We still have yet to get his HUGE laughs but here are a few little giggle clips! He does it all the time but we sit there enjoying it and by the time we think to get the camera he isn't laughing as hard.

In order to maintain my sanity I have gotten out my sewing machine again! I have been working every evening taking photos so I like to do something a little different during the day. Tuesday I sewed a little dress as a birthday gift and I will get some photos of her in it after she gets it. Then Wednesday during naps I made this little skirt for Tiana out of some scraps of fabric that I have left over from making my diaper bag and a little pair of jeans. I cut the legs off the jeans and added the tiers of fabric. I LOVE the way this turned out and she will have some more of them probably at some point. I have a new bubble skirt pattern to try out next and then a jumper to make her. And the most exciting news came today in the form of an email.... my new sewing desk is ready to pick up!!!!! Can't wait to have a place to set up my sewing machine all the time!

Birthday Week

Well we had quite the week around here with the flu and then a cold that left this Mommy without a voice. Luckily Keaton and Camden escaped without getting either bug!!! We sure pulled it all together though to give our big boy a wonderful birthday.
Here are presents on his ACTUAL birthday.
SO excited to get some games.
And his big present.... a real camera just for him.... and Sissy when he puts it down for too long.
Anytime he sees something photo worthy he runs and grabs his camera. I am always hearing, "Mom, say cheese, ok just one more, one two three"
In the car with Nana the other day here is how the conversation went:
Keaton: Where are my uncles?
Nana: Derek is working in Utah, Mark and Kyla are at UofI, and Ryan is going to Boise State. Do you want to go to Boise State when you are bigger?
Keaton: Look at me, I am big now!
We went to the doctor for his checkup and he is big.... 34 pounds (75%) and 39.5 inches tall (91%).
Sis and Camden looking cute in red white a blue.

My favorite little jeans.... the last time..... I was really sad to see these go into the too small box.
Enjoying some good weather, probably the last of the season.
Watching the kids run around crazy.

Vacuuming the floor. She has always loved the vacuum so Nana gave it to her one evening and she could have vacuumed all evening if we let her. A one foot piece of floor was VERY clean.
And the cake......

I just LOVE the way it turned out. It actually went pretty fast this time because Daddy did half of it!
Trying out the jumper.

My three year old and his train cake! He loved it.
Playing outside before the party.
Keaton can now drop kick a football VERY well.
And catch it.
Nice kick. I took the photo and then moved just in time.

The girls.
My boys.

Keaton got lots of trains and a train track rug that he has been playing with every waking minute since he got them. He also got some fun books, games and this art easel!

Daddy took a little to long getting the cake plates out and he chose his piece!
Dipping cake in homemade ice cream.

Wearing the outfit Mommy made him.
Can't believe how big he is getting. It wasn't that long ago that the Boppy looked so big compared to him!
Stories with Papa.
