Fa La La La La!

I am so excited for Christmas and the New Year. To me Christmas isn't about getting presents anymore. I love to decorate and feel the warmth and love of the holiday's with my family. I love watching the boys get so happy over little fun things that we do. This year was our first year, having our own place to decorate. I decorated our tree, with a lot of help from some little hands. Beau's favorite thing to do is try and play baseball with the different balls on the tree. We ate cookies and listened to Christmas music and after we cleaned up our rather tremendous mess, we have been enjoying watching Christmas movies together. I just love this time of year. Here are pictures of my little helpers and the end results.

The pictures doesn't do my tree justice, I promise it looks a lot better in person. The colors are red and gold, and I decorated it with Santa's.


This year for Thanksgiving, Michael and I and the boys joined Tina's family and went to St. George for the weekend. The last time we spent Thanksgiving in Utah, was three years ago before Michael and I were even married. It was a great experience. Rhonda, had some great activities planned for us. We woke up Thanksgiving morning and it had still been raining. Needless to say that didn't stop the boys from playing a game of football. It was so cold, and we loved every minute of it. After we ate and watched some football games, we decorated gingerbread houses. Beau's ended up in the trash. He thought it was fun to decorate a piece, then eat and then throw it. The following morning, Tina and I were up very by 3:00 a.m. and headed out for an eager shopping trip. When we returned at noon, the boys all went on a four-wheeler ride and shot guns. After every one got back we went to Santa's Workshop. It was an incredible weekend. Beau and Gage enjoyed spending so much time with their grammy as Beau likes to call her. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful family. Here are a few pictures.

Beau decided to go outside all by himself. He just sat in this chair with a bottle for about 10 min.

The boys didn't watch any games, so Beau asked to watch Nemo on my computer.

Beau loves to watch movies on the computer rather than on the T.V.
Gage was so good. He barely cried on the drive up and back and only cried once while we were in Utah.

He's such a happy baby.

I can't get enough.

With the holiday's fast approaching, there is so much to do. I sometimes get caught up in the shopping, the house cleaning, all the meal preparations, my homework, and the list keeps going. I've noticed that I have been so absorbed in everything minus my boys. So today I have focused all my attention on playing and soaking up the moment with my special boys. Here are some pictures I took today, I just can't get enough of my kiddos. (Most of the pictures are of Gage, I haven't taken ver many of him lately.)

Random Pictures

Beau got out of the tub and just wanted to sit on his pumpkin naked and watch the Doodlebops. I think his naked pics are so cute:)

Gage is so dang sweet. He has started scooting a little bit. Doesn't he look more and more like Michael everyday?

We went to Rhonda's last weekend, and Beau was helping her feed Gage. He always freaks out if Gage has spit or slobber on his mouth and he has to stop whatever is happening to wipe his mouth.

This is Beau helping Rhonda get ready. He has always sat on her sink while she does her and makeup.

The best news of all, Beau went poop on his toliet for the first time.

Trick-or-Treat (or just HI!)

Last night was so much fun. We went over to Darwin and Staci's house and Darwin took our boys trick-or-treating. Beau was so cute. We practiced knocking on their door first, so Beau would know what to do. We didn't even make it out of the drive way when he decided he needed to eat his candy already. Beau didn't understand how to say trick-or-treat, so instead he would say Hi, really enthusiastically. He was so determined to hold his own bag and walk to each door. By the end of the night he knew exactly what to do and he would go up somwhat by himself (unless thier where noises or the people where dressed up.) Then we went back to their house and ate pizza and Beau ate his candy. We'll just say he was so wired he didn't go to bed until 12:00 last night. Here are a few pictures. Beau was a devil and Gage was a pea in a pod, incase you can't tell.

I just had to post the picture of Michael balancing Gage, he use to do this all the time to Beau. He tried to balance Beau but he was such a little chicken. It always makes me so nervous that Mike might accidentally drop them.

I'm loosing it.

Okay so I had another bad mom moment. I have so much on my mind I can't function right. I just got home from meeting Teri at Sam's Club and I turned off the car and threw my keys in the diaper bag. Then I proceeded out of the car, where I accidentally hit the lock button instead of the unlock button. Yes, I locked the boys in the car. I had to run to our office and ask them to call someone for me since my cell phone was also in the car. We decided against a lock smith since they take to long. Needless to say we had the police and the fireman come out and try to unlock my car. It got to the point they almost had to break my window, since they couldn't get in and the boys were crying and sweating so bad. The point to my story is I need to get a hide-a-way key, since this is the second time in two months that I have locked the keys in the car.

Choo-Choo Train!

I want to say thank you to Brittany for inviting me to go to the train park. Beau was so excited to do something different with his cousins. He walked around all morning saying "Tate, Tate" and "Choo-Choo train". It was a great change and not to hot. I took a couple of pictures that turned out really cute. (Lindsey hopefully you got a good picture with the boys sitting down. All of mine are either blurry or one of the two boys are looking off in different directions, or have their eye's closed.)

Little Boys, that's all I can say!

A quick update: Beau is saying two knew words. The first word he walks around saying all day long is Happy. I hear Happy, Happy, Happy all day long. The second word, really surprised Mike and I. Mike was playing a card game and made a mistake, and he didn't even say anything, but Beau did. He looked up at Michael and said "Oh Shoot!". Then at dinner when he dropped his fork on the ground he said it again. I told Michael that we had better start watching what we are saying. Gage is now cooing and smiling so much. I'll have to get a picture and post it soon. He is also holding his head up really well and kind of scooting a little around the floor. That is just a little on the improvement of both boys.

I can't emphasize how much Beau is a fish. He absolutely loves the water. When we go to the zoo, it is a fight to try and explain that Gage is tired and we have to go home. I can't complain though. Beau is such a great little boy, and Gage is such a trooper.

This is Beau going down the cave slide.

This is the inside of the cave, Beau loved playing in the little pools, of water. I did have to explain to him once that it was yucky water and he couldn't drink it.

Gage is a trooper, he finally gave up and fell asleep.

Beau was so sad we had to leave.

Last night I started the shower and was so excited to be able to relax and shave my legs and not have to worry about any little feet underneath me. How wrong I was. Beau heard the shower and asked to get in. I told him "no, go play catch with your dad." I walked into our room and then back into the bathroom where I heard little giggles. This is what I saw:
