P's first field trip

Parker went on his first field trip! I was really glad I got to go with him! They went to the fire station and learned about fire safety. Here is Parker with the ladies! My boy is such a stud! Parker got to squirt the fire hose! He had a lot of fun, and was pretty good at it. Maybe he will be a fireman when he grows up. He enjoyed being a "big boy" fireman.
P's preschool group! His class is a lot smaller, but for field trips everyone gets together and goes. It is nice because then the mom's get to visit!

Here is Parker talking to the fireman. I think it is great they show the kids what the firemen look like so they don't get scared of them if there is a fire. Parker got to give him nucks and it made him a very happy boy!

1.Take the bar of soap and grate into a bowl.

cousins...

Sarah and her cousin are only 5 days apart. They are so cute together, they like to give each other kisses and Mckinlee just attacks Sarah with loves!I have wanted to make Sarah a tutu for a while. I thought what better time then with her cute cousin. We had a lot of fun making these for the girls and they looked so precious! It is
s0 fun seeing them play together. BTW...does anyone know how to get the words to wrap around the pictures? Any who...I just love how they turned out, too bad Sar was a little grumpy!

















p's first day of pre-school!

My little Parker bug started pre-school! I am so proud of him. Parker is such a sweetheart and we love him so much. His pre-school is just around the corner from our house, so we can walk.
It was really bright outside, so poor little P was squinting for the pics, Ryan made fun of me for taking pictures on his first day of pre-school, but I don't care! I was a proud mama! :)
Parker loves to push his sister in the stroller, he just adores her. I love my kiddos, they are so sweet and I couldn't have a better family!

Happy 1/2 birthday to Sarah!


Today is Sarah's 1/2 birthday! She is 6 mos. old! I can hardly believe it. I am very overwhelmed today. I have so much gratitude in my heart for the opportunity to be the mother of 2 beautiful children. After my little scare with the dvt/pe I have had a really hard time. Not only physically, but emotionally. I have been scared everyday for the last 6 mos. that I wouldn't wake up, or I wouldn't have the chance to be here for my family. I know, it may be a little dramatic, but that is how I felt. I am finally starting to let go of that awful feeling. I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for allowing me to stay here and raise my beautiful kids. I love them with all my heart, they are so very special. So, Happy 1/2 birthday to my little baby girl! I love you so much!

Little miss Sarah after her first bath! What a sweetie
Sarah 6lbs. 5 oz. she just barely doubled her birth weight! She is so petite and cuddly!

Dinsaur Park-er

We went to the Dinosaur Park! I thought it was free day, but I guess it was the week before! The lady let us in for free anyway because it was only an hour until closing time. We were just going to pay to get in, but the lady let us in no charge. It was a nice surprise!
Here is Parker riding a dino, I love the cute faces he makes!
Awww, daddy took a turn carrying Sarah in the sling. I think it looks good on him! :)
My babies are so cute, I love this picture of them! They make me smile everyday!


Sarah's first time swinging! She really liked it! She is such a little shrimp! What a pretty princess


I love this sign! Parker is such a ham!





Under the "ong neck" aka Long neck




Triceratops!


We had a great day! I love being with my little family. They are so much fun! For Halloween the dinosaur Parker does a night walk, You can go through the park when it is dark and dress the kids in their costumes. We will definitely be going, it's always a lot of fun! I love seeing my kids experience new things in life! It's so great to see things through a child's eyes. I am so thankful for my beautiful children and my great husband!
