Where has the time gone?

Today marks 9 years that Chris and I have been married. Many people thought we wouldn't last a year. Well we showed them!! I love Chris so much and I don't know what I'd do without him. We have an amazing family and our marriage has stayed strong through a lot of hard times. Many couples would have given up a long time ago, but for us that's not an option. He couldn't get rid of me if he tried!!
Our first date, Sadie Hawkins, October 1997

Two months

I can hardly believe that it's been 2 whole months since Sawyer has joined us. He's grown so much just in the past couple of weeks. He's really filling out. He's starting to be a little chubster, just like his big brothers were. He smiles and "talks" all the time. He's still sleeping a lot during the day, and he wakes up about 2 or 3 times a night. Some nights are worse, but he's getting better. I'm still trying to adjust to some sort of schedule during the day as far as housework, getting the boys to and from school, trying to get to the gym, running errands, and taking care of the baby. It's a lot to fit in and I'm sure it will be easier in a few weeks when the boys are out of school, but then I run into another problem: keeping all 3 of them entertained!!

Mawn lowing with Daddy

Logan helped Daddy with the "mawn lowing" last weekend. He pushed his little mower right along side him the entire time, front and backyard. He even commented a few times "I think my bag is full Daddy" and emptied the invisible grass. And when Daddy's mower ran out of gas, so did his. Logan made sure that everybody knew that he helped "mawn low the lawn".

Let me tell you a little story.....

When we got back from the gym the other day, I left Sawyer in his carseat so I could go use the.......well, it doesn't matter what I was doing. Anyway, when I came out I found Logan "reading" Sawyer stories from his kids bible.

Big brothers are the best

Sawyer LOVES Brandon. As soon as he locks eyes with his big brother he starts grinning from ear to ear. Sawyer smiles at all of us, but he saves his cutest, most excited expressions for his superhero big brother, Brandon.

Who needs a utility belt when you've got utility long johns?!

Brandon came out of the bedroom the other night and he had loaded the waistband of his long johns with makeshift battle tools. He looked so cute I couldn't help but take a picture. And yes I realize that long johns are in fact underwear, and my kid is wearing underwear under underwear, but that's how he likes to wear 'em!

How did I get so lucky?

I couldn't ask for more amazing little boys.

My birthday

I know it's been a couple of weeks since my birthday, but I'm just now getting around to posting about it. My wonderful hubby got together with my equally wonderful mother-in-law, Shellie, to put together an awesome birthday dinner for me. Since Logan and I share a birthday, Chris always goes out of his way to make me feel like it's still "my " day also.

They found a great Hawaiian restaurant to go to. Lately I've been obsessed with planning our trip for next year, so Chris wanted to give me a little taste of what to expect. It was a really great place. The food was awesome and they even had live musice. Shellie brought a big box of leis for everybody to wear. SO many of my friends came. We took up half of the whold place! So thank you so much to Chris and Shellie. I love you both. And thanks to all of you that came. It was a lot of fun.

And then there were three.....

I finally got pictures of the boys in their "brother" shirts.

How did my kids age so fast?

I'm so proud of my little men. They've grown up so much in 4 short years. It's flown by! They are such smart kids and they are so much fun.

Brandon was a great big brother to Logan, and now that he's older he's much more attentive with Sawyer. And Logan follows right behind Brandon making sure that everything is okay. They make a great team. I hope that Sawyer will turn out to love his brothers as much as they love him.
