Jack is 4!!!

How does life get so busy!!! I am FINALLY posting pictures from Jack's 4th birthday on the 4th of Nov. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK!!! We celebrated Jack's birthday that day with Chris' side of the family. Jack wanted to go to Red Robin and it turned out to be a great place to have a party!! Here is a picturs of two of Jack's cousin's, Emily and Brooklyn. They all had a great time!!

After dinner we went over to our house to have cake and open presents. Jack got a new winter coat, puzzles, books and money for his college fund--he'll be thanking us later for that!!!

My Mom and Dad arrived the Saturday after his birhtday so we had a party with my side of the family on the Sunday following Jack's birthday. Here is a picture of the cute Reeboks that my sister found. She found them in Wade's and Jack's size, how cute!!! I don't think Wade thought they were as cute as Mom did!! He also got a new 2-wheel bike, Marble Works, books, clothes, and his favorite gift, a fishing pole from GeeGee and Papa. He now asks everyday when we are going to go to the cabin so we can fish.

Happy Birthday Jack!! It's amazing how fast 4 years have gone. You are such an amazing little boy and such a great helper. I thank God everyday for you and what a wonderful son you are. You are so smart that sometimes I can't believe you are only 4. I can't wait to see what the next 4 years bring us. I Love you so much!!!

Wade at 6 weeks

My dear friend Sara took pictures of Wade when he was 6 weeks old and I am finally getting around to posting a few of them. They are so beautiful and it is hard for me to imagine he was ever this small. He is almost 9 months old and I keep asking myself how I could have possibly missed him being so small. He just grew up too fast. I think he even tried to sayMama today. Maybe it is me just wanting it to happen, but I have heard it a few times so I can just pretend it is what he is saying and smile. My sweet, sweet boy! Sara is having her 20-week ultra sound today and I can't wait to hear that everything is good and to find out what it is!!

Wii Olympics!!

Our small group from church got together last night for the Wii Olympics. The events were bowling, tennis and Guitar Hero. I think we only ended up playing bowling and Guitar Hero b/c Guitar Hero ended up being way too funny!! I bowled for the first time and bowled a 199. I was teamed up with Brad and we took first place in bowling. This is a pic of Tina bowling.
Here are Chad and Tina on Guitar Hero. Sweet shorts, Chad! I believe the shorts belonged to his wife, Heather. Please give them back to her!!! Ha ha! Can't remember what song they did but Chad was on vocals and Tina on the Guitar. I think they did Heartbreaker.
Autumn and Chris chose to do Beat It by Michael Jackson, it was way too funny! Brad even broke out the video camera. If I can get the video I will post it. They got booed twice but did make it through the third time. But the highlight of the night was Chris and Mark, with Chris on guitar and Mark on vocals singing Beastie Boys. I believe we have that on video, too. Brad, do you think you could send me those videos? I think I now know what Chris wants for Christmas. We had a great night with everyone and can't wait to do it again! Thanks Brad and Shelley for hosting!

Halloween 2008!!

Finally, we have great weather for Halloween!! The last few years have been cold and rainy and this year it was pleasant and in the 60's!! We couldn't have asked for better weather. We went trick-or-treating with Autumn, Mark & family again this year. We love going with them because the kids love it and it gives us adults a chance to hang out. The kids lasted about an hour and were then too tired to continue. After trick-or-treating we stopped and saw Jane and Mike, where Chris enjoyed a beer and I enjoyed a glass of wine. Thanks Jane and Mike, it was great seeing you!!! We also went to visit Aunt Christie and Uncle Jeremy. They had no trick-or-treaters so Aunt Christie topped off Jack's pumpkin with candy. The boys did great and even Wade made it until 10pm!!!
