A Barrel of Monkies!

I think they make the cutest little monkies in a barrel, don't you? For some reason kids love to be fit into closed and confined spaces... why is this? I don't know, but they could sit in there all day and that would be fine by me!

Catching some ZZZZ's

My favorite time of day!
You know you're lame when all you have to blog about is your kids sleeping! But I thought some of these pictures were too funny and too cute. I Love the places and ways they fall asleep. Like their battery just up and dies right there!

This one is particulary cute!

Just lounging about.

A new haircut for Jace and a new post for Jennie!

So yeah, it's been a while. My friend Jennie sent me an email with a link to my own blog site, telling me it was time to post! I'm so pathetic! Anyway, Jace's hair was starting to look somewhat like a miniature old lady with his hair all fluffy and all. I decided it was time. Time to cut the naturally curled UNDER hair of his... it just wasn't working!
This was before. The pic above was after the cut of the fluff! And the pictures below are of some random times in the past couple of months. I thought they were fun pictures of the boys.

Below, Jace wearing his boots over his jammies, wanting to go outside in the snow. NOT HAPPENING BUDDY!

And this one is the oh so infrequent loving embrace of the boys! Glad I got it in a still! It sure is cute!

I really do like to blog when I actually do it. If that makes any sense! Thanks Jennie, for helping remember that my blog existed! You're awesome! I'll do better if you continue sending the link to my blog! Thanks!

Aiden's 3rd birthday party!

The morning of his party, we were just playing around and he came up with the idea of wrapping him in plastic wrap! Being as how that very act was both his and my birthday wish, I said "SURE!" and wrapped the little guy up!
And then he was done and wanted me to let him out all too soon! So I snapped some more pictures instead!

Here are some pics of Aiden's birthday party last week. We had a great time. I think I planned way too much for just a few hours though! Plus, I had planned for it to be in our clubhouse but forgot to pay the HOA so they didn't come to unlock the door for us... leaving me scrambling around trying to figure out what to do! It actually worked out better going to the playground and having the kids play a little. So, all in all, it worked out better than planned!

For some reason he was scared or something. He gets that way every now and then when all the attention is on him. So I was trying to help him blow out his candles here... he wouldn't do it!

This was the cake I made for him. It was really fun to make truly. I actually enjoy doing that kind of stuff. I just think it's fun to make on every now and then for their birthday's because it's a memory that I always loved when my Mom would make our cakes. And it saves money! Win win situation there, right!?

Aiden got a bike from us and he loves it! He isn't too bad on it either.

This was the sea of presents that so many people graciously gave... and I feel terrible for! I really didn't mean for there to be so many and he really didn't need to be given so much. I think next year I am going to tell people to not worry about gifts. Not that it isn't appreciated, it's mostly just that he has way too many toys in the first place! But it was really nice and we are grateful to have so many great friends and family.

Our day at the beach

This is actually right before we left... we finally got him to wear underpants! Stinker...

Jace sat so still in that little boat! I thought it made a cute picture. I just so happened to get one with the birds right there!

This hat was perfect for him! He just looked to cute in it.

He ran around the beach naked the entire time!

Bumprints in the sand!

About my boys...


These are some things about our little Aid. He currently spends his days hovering over Jace. When I say hovering, I mean anything remotely close... over, under, etc. I once found him rolling around with Jace... and I mean that literally! Aiden would roll and up came Jace, then he'd roll and Jace would be pinned... and both laughing their faces off! Aiden is at the age of mimicking and unfortunately he has witnessed Chet pick Jace up by the middle if his shirt and swing Jace up into his arms. So naturally, Aiden thinks he can do the same and I have to keep a close eye on him! Aiden loves music and songs. He enjoys doing fun little actions to those songs and it makes it enjoyable for us to watch! His favorite food is sugar with a side of sugar! He knows how to count to 17 and knows his colors very well. His favorite colors are orange and blue. I know this because all the orange colored vitamins have all been chosen from the bottle! His passion for cooking has not ceased or dwindled! He'll mix up all sorts of weird mixtures, but luckily he hasn't asked me to taste any! Aiden loves animals. Particularly dogs and cats. I just feel bad for one who gets caught by him! Aiden is very thoughtful and is the best person for making Jacers laugh! He can do it better than anybody.


Our baby Jace is sooooo happy! For the most part of course! I'll walk into the room and find him smiling before I can even get a chance! Jace's new thing when he smiles is to stick his tongue out while doing so! It's pretty cute! He spends his days eating, sleeping, and gumming small puff grains. He does have 2 teeth now so I guess that helps the process of breaking them down! He likes to play with Aiden... but he can grow weary of his constant poking and prodding! Jace enjoys watching his older brother bounce around the house and I can see in his eyes he wishes he could be doing the same! So I'm sure it won't be long before we have two tiggers bouncing around! Although we like to believe he knows what he is saying when he says MAMMA and DADDA... he most likely doesn't! But we pretend! Jace is a lovable little guy and we love having him in our family!

A mind of his own!

So really, I was watching... for the most part! We were in the kitchen and I knew he was over there playing with some water in the sink. What I didn't know was that he was planning on getting naked and taking a bath in my kitchen sink! I really had only left for just a few minutes, but that's all it takes with Aiden!
