One Lucky Mommy!

Some days I look at my two little boys and think "What have I gotten myself into?" Other days, like today I look around and think how lucky I am to get to spend my days with them. Despite the crazy wild personalities they have they are pretty cute boys. So I thought I'd Share some of their sweetness with the world.
Owen has a toy vaccum and its his favorite toy ever! He is constantly helping daddy vaccum. (I dont vaccum... thats Tim's job) He copies everything daddy does... lifts up the cord, vaccums the cracks in the couch... even pretends to empty the canister. It makes me smile to see him working so hard!

Owen and Snowflake (aka Bear)
Owen adores this bear. Jaxon made it last year for christmas but it hasnt left Owens side since then. he LOVES bear. As owen has gotten older Bear becomes more and more like a person. Owen will pretend to put chapstick on bear, or lotion on bear and makes bear sit up straight beside him and nods his head when answering a question. Sometimes I think Bear will start talking before owen does! LOL!

My Boys have the coolest uncle ever... Uncle Kris is a DJ!!! So when we are at uncle Kris' house Jaxon gets to play DJ (under Kris' watchful eyes!) He loves music and will jam out and have dance parties for hours. His favorite it scratching on the turntable!

DJ Jaxon!

Mama and Papa

This is a post for Owen. He has been asking to see Mama and Papa for the last couple of days... so sad that since they are back in Texas we won't get to see them until March 22...long ways off. But no matter how hard I try to explain this to my 2 yr old he just doesnt get it... or he doesnt care. He askes me multiple times a day "Mama? Papa?' and everytime I put on his coat he gets all excited because I guess he thinks we are going to see mama and papa but then he cries when we get to a store and he shakes his head... "No mama and Papa" sad I know... (mom, feelign guilty yet for being so far away!?) So here are a few posts (yes the pictures are from this summer) of some of the reasons why mama anda papa's house is so much better then ours.
Above is owen feeding tokens into a game at chuck e Cheese. He loves that place. He is catching on too. He loves collecting tickets.

Auntie Rachel and Jaxon seeing just how many tickets we have

Then there is the piano. My boys love playing on it. It's our piano now but since we dont have room (and I dont have the patience for the noise it will bring) yet its still at Mama and Papa's house. Its the great temptation they face every morning when Im trying to keep them quiet as normal people are still sleeping...

Baby It's Cold Outside

We have been hit with a serious artic chill this week. The daytime highs has been around -30 with the windchill making it feel like -44 degrees or so. It's brutal! We have spent all week indoors only venturing out to take Jaxon to and from school. The boys are handling it really well and only have a mild case of cabin fever. We've watch tons of movies (toy story 1, 2 or 3 are big hits right now) and lots of curious george for Owen and done lots of crafts. But we are still looking forward to the warm up next week! My Poor Little Owen's hands cant take much more of the cold. Little Owen has hyper sensitive skin... and the cold seems to make it worse... I forgot to put gloves on him for the walk from the back door to the car and by the time I got him in his hands were bright red and starten to stiffen up... yep I know Im a great mom.
So in a hope to try and warm myself up a bit I thought I'd post some pcitures from this past summer, warmer days... oh how we miss you and look forward to your return.
One of our favorite spots in the Summer time is Heritage Park. The boys love the rides and the candy shop and getting cookies at the bakery. I love all the different activities they have like day out with Thomas and Rail days and the Harvest sale. I also love how close it is (unlike Calaway Park another one of our favorites, but that takes a whole day where as Heritage Park only takes a couple hours!)  
Jaxon on the Merry Go Round!

The Boys on the little Ferris Wheel.

OH this is a big week in our house. Owen is now Officially off the soother. YAY!!! We took it away Sunday night and he has gone 3 whole days and nights with out it! YAY! he has been asking for it alot today... but I think its just that his teeth are bugging him... he has his hands in his mouth alot today! But Im not giving in. He is doing great! We are now a soother free house (ok... for another 5.5 months until the new baby comes)

After like what... 4 long months...Im back! I Bet some of you were wondering if Id dropped off the earth! But I havent... life has been CRAZY! But Im back and hoping for some more regular updates on here... fingers crossed... But here is a recapped of our lives!

Summer ended... so sad. My boys and I love being outside so we were very sad to see summer go knowing that we would have to entertain ourselves in the house more often then before. Jaxon is already counting down to Spring. We had so much fun this summer and are really looking forward to next summer

Jaxon's first day of school!
With the fall came a new school year. Jaxon started 4 yr old Preschool. Its super exciting because its basically right across the street from us. So its a fun walk! No more long car rides to school. Jaxon is loving school and is excelling. He can write his name and counts non stop. We even have him doing addition and subtraction now. My goal for next week is to label some things around the house to help him start to read. He is a sponge and loves soaking up evey little bit of knowledge he can. He is also working on telling time.

And of course Halloween happened. My boys were sick the weekend before Halloween (seems to be tradition in our house) But they were fine and dandy for the big day! Jaxon was a monkey and Owen was a monster. Jaxon was so excited to get candy and it took owen about 3 houses to figure out what the deal was and then he got right into it too! After about 30 minutes and 1 and half blocks Jaxon said he had enough candy and wanted to head home...So we did.

What else happened... Well Christmas... but Ill blog that with some pictures once I find my camera cord...Oh and we found out we are expecting our third baby. I am due June 26th. YAY! I have been super sick.. but I always am. And everything is going well. We are hoping to find out what we are having at the end of the month! I want another boy... Tim wants a girl. Of and in case some of you are wondering THIS IS THE LAST BABY FOR US! Im super excited about that fact... knowing that I will be able to get rid of baby stuff FINALLY and not have to store it all! That stuff takes up so much room!
