'Da Boys

Today, was checkup day for the boys.  Nine years for Brice and 30 month for Kyle.  Both are healthy and tall...which I knew.  Kyle hadn't had a nap so it got a little rough towards the end of the visit.

Brice
75 lbs-77%
56.25 inches-92%

Kyle
34 lbs 2oz- 87%
38.5 inches- 91%

I will update this post with some pictures and the personalities of each kid soon, but for right now, I am going to go eat some ice cream and watch American Idol.  Yes, I still act like I am in college, what can I say??

Grateful for healthy, sleeping kids.

I am back.  With some pictures of our most recent birthday boy.  Brice chose a SkyZone party this year which is a trampoline "park".  If I were a kid again, I would go bonkers over this place.  All I could think about though was who was going to break their leg, arm or neck?.  I felt very responsible for all these boys and my own three.  It was, so much fun for the boys though as well as Anna, her friend Hannah and Kyle and Jack.  They were worn out after the hour of jumping!! 

Brice continues to be such a joy of a kid.  He is a model student in school, as well as in extra curricular activities.  He is a wonderful big brother, always patient, and willing to help them or play with them and as of late, even make breakfast for them!  It is very hard for me to believe that he is nine years old now.  He has braces now and I swear gets taller everyday.  It is fun to see him develop into a big kid and yet hard for me to let my oldest not be "little" anymore.  He has always acted older than his age but still, there is a young guy living in my house, stinky baseball socks and all.

Here are some pictures from his birthday morning and party...




 Thanks to my Dad for capturing all these shots.  Not easy when everyone was in constant motion!
 Justin jumped quite a bit himself and then helped keep Kyle safe on the big kid parts of the park.

Sledding videos

I only have two videos on here. Justin took SO many including the ones with Kyle. He finally wanted to sled the second day when it was bright and sunny.

This next one is me sledding down the hill. We really had such a good time but were all glad when the snow melted and school was back in session!

Here is one more of Justin and Brice coming down our street.  This one is from my actual camera.

Snow Fun!

Although I am snow ready for our routine to be back to normal and the kids to go to school for a whole week we have had Snow much Fun this past week.  Here are just a couple of pictures and quick videos from our three days of snow.  Tuesday, it started and after being at school for two hours, Justin had to go get Brice.  Then it stopped only to start again early, early Wednesday morning.  It wasn't until Wednesday night though that we really got a ton.  I would say we got between 4 and 5 inches!  Wednesday was our best sledding day and the kids had such a great time. Thursday was fun but the sun came out and the temperature increased so a lot of it melted or became slush very quickly.


 Brice and Anna had the best time sledding even though it was sleeting while they were doing it.

 Kyle did not really care for the snow and if he got wet at all, he wanted back inside.  I did buy him a pair of snow pants but he wouldn't put them on.
 A little pouty face.


 I finally was able to borrow Brice's sled so that I could take Kyle down.  He enjoyed the ride part of it but the sleet was hurting his little face and he just wanted to come back in.  On Thursday, he enjoyed sledding with Brice more while going down a smaller hill.  I will post videos soon.  Also, Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!  I dropped the ball on changing the blogs background for February but the snowflakes still seem very fitting and so I just changed some colors around for the "holiday".  Also, soon to come, circus pictures as well as our birthday boy!  Nine on Sunday!!
