Christmas Pictures!

We finally did it! I know that we are late in the game, but I guess better later than never! We went this afternoon and took a bunch of adorable pictures! This is the picture we ended up with! I think it is cute and shows how close these two little buggers really are! They love each other!

Sadie Turned 5!

Sadie had her birthday! She took cupcakes and a bag of favors to the other kids in her preschool class. We kind of treated it like her party. I think that she enjoyed the fuss being made over her!

Then on her actual birthday, Sunday, we were eating her birthday meal of hamburgers and orange chips (also known as Doritos) when all of a sudden, to my surprise she was asleep! I guess we just wore her out!

Sadie did wake up later to open her presents and have cake and ice cream, but it did take a lot of poking and prodding. We are so happy to have Sadie to keep us entertained! Happy Birthday little girl!

Rain, rain, come again!

I just found this picture of the kids in the rain. It had been raining all night and when the kids woke up they just wanted to go outside and play in the rain! We all ran around out in the rain for a minute and then the kids jumped into a warm bath. They still talk about "tasting the rain."

Cody got Married!!

This weekend was a fast and furious one! My one and only brother got married in Portland. We had a great trip, and a fantastic weekend. Sadie was a flower girl, and Sam was in the wedding party as well. We are so happy to have Alycia in our family now. As you can see, she truly is beautiful and Cody is one lucky man. Sam is also very happy to have his first girlfriend married into the family!

These are the two men in my life! Sam knew that he was hot stuff when he arrived! He came in with his hands on his hips and then threw his foot out and basically said to everyone, "Check me out!" Josh looked pretty good himself!

I had to take the opportunity to take a cute pictures with my two little ones all dressed up! They were so adorable. Sadie was the life of the party, and of course had to be right in the middle of things all night long!

In the afternoon when Sadie goes to preschool Sam usually sits and watches part of a movie before he takes his nap. This picture was today while he was getting ready to go down, however he had a large friend with him! Recently he has not let go of his daddy's football-obviously he keeps it close by at all times! If you look closely you can even see it in the Halloween pictures, he is sitting on it a couple of times. I think that it is adorable, and thought that I would share this cute moment with the rest of you!

Trick or Treat

We had a spooktacular evening! Sam was a pirate, and if I can brag, the cutest one out there! Sadie was a witch but she claims that she was a good witch and would do no harm to anyone in her path! She was great with helping her brother figure out what this trick-or-treating stuff is all about! We missed Josh tonight, and the pictures show that we did not have our "real" photographer with us! We hope everyone else enjoyed their night and that no one got too scared!

Getting Ready for Halloween!

We have had a great night carving pumpkins and thought that we would share our creations with you! The bat is our favorite! We were able to carve all three without major cuts. However we did have a couple melt downs because the kids were not able to do it ALL by themselves so they went a little bit crazy! Sadie and Sam are looking forward to "Trick or Treating." I don't think that we need anymore candy..... but am looking forward to having a spooky night! PS Sadie drew the face on the Jack-O-Lantern all by herself, and then I cut it out for her, but she is quite the budding artist!

Learning to Fly

Sam is learning so much these days.

When it's 110 all you can do outside is swim. Some recent photos of the kids swimming. Who do you think Sam got his floaters handed down from?!

Sadie's First Day of School

Sadie is official! She has started Preschool! She has been so excited for this day for quite some time! Sadie had a new outfit and her great smile and was ready to go to LMNO school with Miss Nikkii. Sadie has a lot of friends in her class, including one of her best friends Kingston. She loved her first day and earned both of her stars! She can't wait to learn more!

Fun Pictures!

Sadie had to take a picture to her "Meet the Teacher Day" and so we took some pictures of both of the kids. Nothing to spectacular but yet fun to see a current picture of both of the kids!

Santa Cruz!

On our wild California Adventure we stopped in Santa Cruz and played on the boardwalk! I think we all had a great time! Sadie loved the Merry-Go-Round. All of the big kids loved the old wooden roller coaster! Sadie about broke her neck on the car ride but decided to go several times!

Fishing Fun!

We had a great summer this year! One of the highlights was going to visit Grandma and Grandpa Caldwell! Sadie still talks about her "giant" fish that she caught. Unfortunately I think Sam's fish is much larger. Fish stories, why does this fish always grow?
