BOYS will be BOYS!

So some moments with 2 year olds can't be caught on a camera but it is worth remembering. Jensen was outside playing this morning and I heard him coming in saying "I got poos". I went to meet him and the first thing I saw was a naked boy. Then I looked down and in one hand was a diaper and in the other was something brown. The first thing I thought was I hope that is dirt. ( how often do you wish your child is bringing a handful of dirt in the house) No such luck.. yep, in his hand was what should be in his diaper. GROSS!!!!

Guns for Sale!

This morning Hagen called me into the kitchen. When I got there he told me he has a gun store and asked if I wanted to buy a gun. He makes me laugh!

Boise Zoo!

On Wednesday we went to the zoo with Hagen's Joy school. The boys were so perfect we all had so much fun! I love my boys. We are making it without Shane...so far. Oh he is in Canada. He will be gone for 35 days! We love the military life!

Game Day!

Uncle Kyle came into town one weekend to have a guys weekend. He came to Hagen's game and Hagen was so excited he was there. The next Saturday at his game he was disappointed Uncle Kyle wasn't there. They went fishing the rest of the day. Hagen is always talking about him and loves him!

Spring Soccer!

Hagen played soccer for the first time this spring. He had a lot of fun. He had a tendency to find animals in the clouds and he was really good at making it look like the other team pushed him down and he couldn't get up but it was fun. Shane enjoyed coaching his little team!

Bunny came early

Shane had to go to Silver Flag training over Easter so The bunny came early! Hagen got a new set of golf clubs and has had a blast going golfing with dad. He thinks he is so big and cool carrying his clubs!

Easter at Grandma and Grandpa's

Coloring egges and the Hunt! I just had to include this cute pic I took of my niece. Isn't she so adorable?


Shane was gone for Easter so we went to Utah. Fun times!

How did you celebrate Earth Day?

Yesterday my friend had an idea for some pictures to take for earth day to put on her blog...she is a photographer. She called me up about 9pm last night and wanted me to come help her out. We had a blast taking pics and getting all dressed up. I am tired today but it was worth it. Here is a peak at what we did. Check out her blog for more... www.brandijophotography.net

Binder project

So my newest project was putting together some binders for Joy School. They are making "About Me" binders. The idea in the curriculum was plain but I don't do plain. This is what I started with...

Here is what came of the binders. I put pictures of what the kids love all over the binders. It was so much fun! The best part was I had all of them laying on the floor to dry over night and Hagen came in the next morning with his binder showing me all the cool stuff. He totally picked his out and I did them after he went to bed. ( I don't know why they turned side ways.)

Yes Sir!

Jensen got a hold of Shane's cap so I showed him how to salute. Hagen decided he could do it to but he wouldn't listen when I tried to show him how to do it right. He is to big... he thinks!


So I thought that the boys would like to fingure paint. Maybe I should wait a little longer before Jensen gets another turn.

Look at that hair... yeah he had to take a bath.
Makes you wonder what he is thinking.

The boys!

Yeah, that is Jensen. He went through a crawling and getting stuck in my lazy susan phase. Luckily he is over that now.
The boys just playing around.

Let's take a walk down memory lane for just a second...
Hagen at age two...
2 years later... almost to the day...

I wonder who that is...

Go figure...

So guess where we were on Saturday night... if you can't tell, those are stiches. 4 to be exact. Little turkey! He was supposed to be in bed after a very naughty day and snuck out to get a drink in the bathroom and then we heard a boom and then screaming. I went running and saw the wound before it started bleeding and thought it would need stiches. He slipped while getting a drink. He pulls himself up on the counter and I think he missed the step stool trying to get down and bumped his chin and bit his tongue on both sides and in the front. His tongue bled the most. He is only 4 and has had stiches twice. This time he did so much better than the last. He cried when they numbed it but then he fell asleep while they put in the stitches and didn't wake up til the morning. Can you buy suture kits at Walmart?

New Car!!! I mean Van!!!

So the day after Christmas we bought a new vehicle. I was just going to post some pictures and then realized I haven't taken any yet. Who does that? So I'll tell you about it and then pics will come later.

We bought a tan 2009 Toyota Sienna. It is everything I wanted except it's a van. We were looking at crossovers first but they were so little inside. I finally decided that I would be ok with a van. It is true you don't feel like you are driving one when you are in it. Shane let me choose exactly what I wanted. It kinda stunk cuz if you know me you know I'm not good with decisions. I finally made him tell me what to get. We make a good team! We are very pleased with our purchase!!! I would have to say that was definately the biggest check I have ever written. We saved for so long and then, BOOM! it's gone. I love it though! It is an 8 passenger and has auto doors and I mentioned it is tan. That was mostly my criteria in finding a van. I don't know why it had to be an 8 passenger, I have no intention of ever filling it but just knowing I could get it, i wanted it!

Christmas 09

So Hagen got this military gun set. I knew he would love the guns but didn't know if he would play with the rest of it. Turns out the little grenades(how do you spell that?) were a big hit. He had our whole house blown up within a few hours. (don't judge us...we are in the military)
This was his face every time I handed him a new present. He had so much fun!

We had a wonderful Christmas! We stayed home this year and loved it. We hung out with our friends quite a bit and the boys loved Christmas day!

Hagen is 4!

We went to chuckecheese for his birthday. He loves it there. I swear this kid lives to play games. His bday was on a wednesday and that is when we opened presents and I made his cake, don't make fun. It was all I could come up with. He wanted Spiderman so I used black halloween sprinkles to decorate it. (I had no car, Shane was at work and mine is totaled) He loved it! Then Saturday we went to chuck e cheesin'. That is what Hagen calls it. My mom and Karla, Jastin, and Jenner surprised us on thursday so we had so much fun!
