Merry Christmas!

We had a VERY special Christmas this year, because we have our new baby Cooper to celebrate with too! He did so well with all our chaos and fun during the holiday season. Cole and Caden were also spoiled by all our family. Having 5 Christmas', yes, I said 5, makes for a lot of present unwrapping and fun for them. We now have a small Toys R Us at our house. We are very grateful, and loved spending the holidays with the people we love most!
Cole was thrilled to get his Ultimate Optimus Prime from Santa. Bug got his Chef station, with full chef outfit, and LOVED his Blues Clues "Handy Dandy Notebook!" Cooper has more toys that he knows what to do with. He got his luggage like his brothers, and a new Bumbo seat. Special presents this year were: a new bike for Cole, a digital camera, a Leap Pad Tablet, tools, remote control cars, movies, race tracks, board games, and Wii games, CLOTHES, and new scooters! SPOILED!!!! We will continue to spend the next couple of days finding homes for all our new treats! Thanks again everyone!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Thanks to my family, we just provided the house and the entertainment of our busy children. It is always great spending time together, and it is more fun now because the boys are getting older where they appreciate it more. Cooper had his 1 month birthday on Thanksgiving, and we celebrated with a pie that was bigger than him. He is such a sweet baby and we sure do love him a lot! My big boys make me laugh daily, and they are the light of many people in our families lives. They are pretty comical and keep us on our toes. We sure love them a lot too! Baby Cooper is about 10 and 1/2 pounds and growing more and more each day, but he still looks like a peanut! We are really looking forward to the holiday season! The boys are super excited for Santa this year!

Thanksgiving Feast!

Cole's preschool put on an adorable Thanksgiving Feast! They sang cute songs, and prepared pumpkin muffins. It always makes me laugh how much Cole craves the spotlight...must take after Jamin! LOL
He was one of the loudest singers and knew all the motions to the songs. I just had to laugh! He is getting so big! I can't believe he will be in Kindergarten next year!

We had a fantastic Halloween, and the boys had a blast trick-or-treating. I was able to go to a few houses before I had to come home to our little punkin. I loved having Cooper here early to join in the fun, and Cole and Caden looked adorable in their costumes. Cole got cold after a block, but Caden could have gone on forever! The kid loves treats! I just love my boys!

Our Little Cooper!

Our Little Cooper decided to come three weeks early! He is such a love and is so calm. He was born on Thursday the 27th at 12:09 am. He weighed 7 pounds and one ounce, and 19 1/2 inches long. My biggest fear of going into labor at school came true, but thank goodness it was a half day and the kids were already at home. Jamin took the bus from Seattle to Issaquah and we went to Overlake. My mom was a HUGE help and went by the house to grab everything. Julie was also a huge help and stayed home with the big brothers. My Aunt Karla also helped by ordering and bringing the new carseat, which we were planning to get Hallowwen weekend...oops! Cole and Caden are loving their new brother, and we are so blessed to have three healthy boys!

Fair and Snack Day!

After soccer last Saturday, we went to the Puyallup Fair. We must have picked "The Day" as everyone else thought that the fair was the place to be! It was pretty hot, but we did have a great time! Mr. Bug is still a peanut for most of the rides, which doesn't sit well with him! Jamin went on the only one he could go on! Cole was afraid of the Big Slide last year, but was ready to do it this year, and LOVED it! Next year both boys can ride together and little brother will have to sit back and watch.

You can't go to the fair without getting scones. Of course they did not disappoint! They are so good! We had a great family outing.

Snack Day!!
To a preschool child, nothing is cooler than your special snack day! This year we made cake pops, and of course anything with frosting is a crowd favorite. I try to tie in the schools themes. They are studying spheres and the color yellow. Hello! Cake Pops are both of those things! Cole and I had a great time making them together, and he is already looking forward to his next snack day!
