Things I want to remember about now!!

So these are some of my favorite posts because I know I will not remember if I don't write it down and I really don't want to forget these small things that make full days for me now.  So here goes in no particular order:  Things I just must remember...

Let's start with Isaac since he is the youngest...

Car trains...Isaac loves to build long trains out of all of the cars he can find.  He started doing this a couple months ago and now he can build them all the way from the living room to our bedroom and the size and shape of the car doesn't matter.  He will put hot wheel cars in line with 12 inch firetrucks as long as they line up he is pleased :D

MIRE MAN!!  Mire Man is the word Isaac uses for any superhero character or any character that does not look human but seems "cool" to him.  This started with Spider Man.  He has a spider man t-shirt and would say Mire Man for Spider Man but once Halloween hit and the boys were all superheros (another post I need to do) they were all Mire Man. 

Baba and Ganky...These are Isaac's most beloved items, his blanket, a crochet blanket made by Shel Cooke and his pacifier.  He will not sleep without both of them and he would prefer to have them both with him at all times.  He drags his ganky around with him all day long, every morning down the stairs it comes and he even uses it as an obstacle for his car trains and builds them right over it like a mountain pass. 

Snow Boots...I got Isaac a new pair of snow boots this year and they are his favorite things.  He can put them on by himself.  Often times he will be wearing them with nothing else or really with anything he has on...

No Pants!  Isaac loves to take his pants off recently he has even begun taking off his diaper too...He takes his pants off anywhere usually in public he just pulls them down for no apparent reason, because he can.  People think it is cute...I'm not sure that is what I think of it but he thinks it is hillarious and his big brothers definitely egg him on...

Okay now for Adam:

Adam is so into Legos right now.  He builds me race cars and space ships and Temples and towers.  He just loves building.  He can also build a house with doors and windows with his Lincoln logs in about 3 minutes flat...amazing...

We recently had our Primary Program and one of the songs they were supposed to learn was called Scripture Power (very cute song)  and one of the lines is "Scripture Power keeps me safe from SIN"  Adam was convinced that this line went like this..."Scripture Power keeps me safe from Sid" I would correct him and he would disagree with me.  So asked him why he thought it was Sid?  He said, "Because Sid in Toy Story is a Bad Kid and Scary and the Scriptures will keep me safe from him"  We got to have a talk about what sin was and why it pertained to the song and eventually he came around but we still loved his version too...

and Kevin

first a funny story...I personally love conversations between Kevin and Adam in the backseat of the car.  They are almost always entertaining to me and this particular one made me laugh out loud...

Kevin, "I am never getting married"
Adam "Why"
Kevin, "I don't want to ever kiss a girl"
Adam, "It's okay you only have to do it one time when you get married"

Ha ha ha he he he ha ...okay so I guess they will be in for a rude awakening on that one some day :D

GPS Fingers...So Kevin is very good at directions in the car he can get pretty much anywhere or tell people how to get there while in the car with them.  One day on the way to school I didn't have my GPS on, it usually turns on automatically but recently sometimes it doesn't I'm not sure why.  Kevin noticed and said mom how will you know how to get to my school?  I told him I could probably remember the way, but that didn't satisfy him.  He then said, "Mom, can you see me in your mirror?"  I looked back, "yes"  He said, "good just watch me and I will make sure we get there"  What then happened was that he took his fingers and would point them any direction we should be going all the way to school checking frequently to make sure I was paying attention and could see him...I snapped this shot...

Monday Night with the Family in October!!

Tonight we carved our pumpkins.  We went over to Grandma and Grandpa's new home here in Anaheim.  The boys got hard to work on the pumpkins and then Isaac decided to come in and help me and Grandma with treats, like super fun Halloween sugar cookies and hot chocolate!! He was an awesome helper and the  big boys rocked it on our super cool Jack-o-lanterns!!

Adam is ***4***

Adam turned 4 last month and we threw a party!!  Although I was still very sick I sucked it up for a day and I have to admit it turned out well.  Lots of his friends from preschool showed up along with some of his favorite family members like Papa and Mima and G-Ma and Grandpa and Aunt Sarah, and Aunt Lindsey too.  He also got his best buddies Caleb and Kien to come down from Agua Dolce, he is one lucky and loved little man!!

I made these cuties to give to all of our winners/participants in our field games!!

Toss the rubber chicken was a big hit!!

Sack races always are fun to watch :D

3 legged races are fun to watch too

We also had just plain races and tug-o-war which were not photographed
then we ate some lunch (hot dogs and chips) and opened some gifts!!

Here is some of the gang, left to right
Braden, Garvey, Adam, Brandon, and Kevin

Then we had cupcakes in ice cream cones!! They turned out super cute and the kids thought they were awesome!!
I want to give a special thank you to Papa who was our grill master and the only reason we have any pictures of this event, so thank you so much Papa!!!

I Love My Boys!!

well I just found a treasure trove of new pics on my computer from where my hubby downloaded his phone pics, yay and I found some fun ones that I had to share!!

So here are some pics and why they are so awesome!!

They play ball with Dad!!

scooters are way big at our house

boys don't mind getting dirty!!!

or wet for that matter

They innately love camping and hiking (at least mine do)

throwing rocks into water will never get old for us!!

boys are crazy no doubt about it

they don't have to wear shirts and steal each other's food!!

Sand from head to toe is definitely not something to worry about

a messy face is pretty normal

climbing up on big rocks to get really wet and scare mom is the most fun

for these and many many more reasons we are so excited to be adding one more boy to our family

Boys Rule, Girls Drool
(at least at our house)
