Bone Pictures!

The 'bone picture taker'
It's so funny!
X (or cross in this case) marks the x-ray spot
This time around Drew did awesome! Granted he was not in pain and only had to endure one x-ray as opposed to 7, but he giggled the whole time. He cracks himself up and it's hilarious. We are waiting on results, but expecting to be back in gymnastics on Tuesday.

X-Ray on Friday!

Drew is getting an X-ray on Friday and will (hopefully) be returning to gymnastics on Tuesday! The first few weeks it was no problem not going into class while Tyler did. He was entertained with making 'goldfish volcanos.' Right, Becky!?! But this last week, he cried the entire 45 minutes as he watched through the window. He was soooo loud, that his teacher noticed him and came and asked why he was not in class.
It's been 4 weeks and no one had told her that he had broken his collarbone...

A Princess Birthday!

Princess E
Turning 4
Perfect table manners...
at least for a bit!

It's Erin's birthday today (my niece & Sarah's oldest)! She is the sweetest, smartest, and most talkative little one. She rules the roost. And my boys love love love her. She has been telling everyone that she is older than Tyler...which will only be fun till she reaches her twenties.

I was so proud of Drew when he first got his cake...and then he started shoveling it in and people were asking if I ever feed him. :) Got a taste for the yummy and couldn't get it in fast enough!

Friday night fun!

The best place to have dinner with two boys is a meal with entertainment! Tonight we went to SHOGUNs with some close friends. Tyler sat memorized while Drew 'drummed' the table with chopsticks.

'Following Jesus'
Taking a break

Now that the boys hardly nap, we are always looking for things to do...running up and down a hill was a perfect way to expel some of that boy energy!

Brothers & Sisters (and cousins)

Eyes like his momma!

8 going on 18...

Watch out, she's got 3 brothers!

Don't mess with my sister

These kids are gorgeous! They are a mix of cousins, but you wouldn't be able to tell they are not siblings. Thanks to their beautiful moms for letting me practice on them.

Pretty day, back yard play!

Drew had fun at school
Tyler hiding in the sandbox
Drew chilling in the plants
Tyler hiding from me!

Drew is getting funnier and funnier...right now his favorite word is quesadilla. So when a friend of mine, Becky, asked him what her name was he said 'ques-A-DILLA.' Every morning he wakes up and I ask him whether he wants oatmeal or a pop tart, he replies, 'ques-A-DILLA!' Riding in the car, he sings tunes with only one word...'ques-A-DILLA.' He is a constant entertainment!

Tyler is growing up fast and loves to play hide and seek. Usually you can find him under the lid of the sand box, under the master bed, or laying on the chairs under the dining room table. But he is still my cuddler and will take time every night to do that!

Oh college...

A father-son moment (one of BJ's buddies and his son)

It's serious business

Down, set, hut...
Where's daddy??

'Where?' with a mouthful of food
Ah...there and working hard!

Oh the pressure!
The proud audience

My boys love this kid

BJ and a good friend of his played a couple of flag football games today. They showed the twenty-somethings that the thirty-somethings can still smoke 'em.

The little guys are into anything outside with a ball so of course they wanted to tag along. Though it was chilly, they had a great time with our friend's little one.
