Pictures, Pictures, and more Pictures

I have been horrible about posting. I have not been in the mood to do postings and the holidays were crazy and since then I have not been in the mood too post much. Home was also crazy busy because Ryan was home with his hurt knee. He was not able to work for over 3 months. We are getting back to our schedule since he has been back to work, which is nice to get back to our regular schedule.

Christmas was very good and the boys were spoiled. Jase had fun with opening presents.

Instead of boring you with long stories here are some pictures to look at. Maybe next time I will stay on top of the posting thing.

Mine and Brayden's pumpkins that we carved for Halloween.

Jase was a cute little monkey for Halloween, but he looked more like a mouse. Which was fitting because at Halloween time we were having problems with mice in our home.

Brayden was Batman and thought he was so cool.

Brayden fell at school and got a really good shiner.

Brayden likes to comb his hair down. One night I thought I would be funny and make him look like Dennis the Mennis.

Jase loves to get into the pantry. He loves to put this on his head and walk around. Brayden would do the same thing. I need to find the picture of Brayden with this on his head.

Our sad attempt at a ginger bread house. The stupid frosting kept running and our roof would not stay together. Very frustrating.

Cute Brayden.

We went to Zoo Lights with some of our friends. It was our first time and I was really impressed.

The kiddos.

Miranda and cute little Anthony.

Brayden wrestling with Jase on Christmas Eve.

The annual Christmas picture with the boys and their matching jammies. A family tradition that I grew up with and will continue on with my family. I love matching jammies.

Me and Jase. He is ready for bed.

Brayden opening up the Wii that Santa gave the family.

Jase talking to Elmo.

Ready for his nap.

Brayden and his cool new bike.
Brayden had been growing out his hair so that he could be cool like his cousins Holden, Mason and Dylan. He finally let me cut it. Every morning his hair would look like Kate Gosslin. Drive me nuts. I was not meant to have kids that I would have to do their hair. If I had a girl it would be a very sad situation.

Jase being silly in daddy's hat.

Me and the kids went to Las Vegas to see my mom. We wen to Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden. This is a picture of a man who goes into the tanks to make sure there is no garbage. While he would swim around the dolphins would nibble at his feet.

The tigers are extremely playful and would wrestle with each other. Last time we were there these guys were just cubs.

This tiger was taking a rest in his pond.

One of the dolphins doing tricks.

Brayden and I went to the Shark Tank at Mandalay Bay and Brayden loved to pet the Sting Rays. We spent what seemed like an hour there.

Birthday Boy and Halloween

Jase turned one in September and we had a little get together at our house. Jase had so much fun with his friends and cousins and all of the attention that he got.

Aunt Pauli was quick to point out that maybe Tigger was being inappropriate with Pooh. Taking a closer look I agree.

Papa Don with Alycia.

Brayden and Dylon

I thought the red would never come off, but was quite easy.


The boys with their best buddies from the neighborhood.

My little monkey.

I had batman to save the day, but he was too tired and was taking a rest.

Brayden and myself carved pumpkins.

Brayden got hurt at school and fell on his face. OUCH!!!

Jase has decided he is a picky eater but this day he enjoyed cheese stick dips. YUMMY.!!!

First haircut

So I have been very weiry about getting Jase's haircut, but I finally gave in and tonight we took him to get his haircut. I did not want to do it and for him to lose his "baby" look. But I was strong and he looks so cute.

Getting sprayed in the face with water.

Look at that dirty look.

He uses his bottom lip to his advantage.

I am such a hansome boy!!!!!

Bear Lake Baby

So last week we went to Bear Lake for a little vacation. We went and stayed in a one bedroom condo. The bedroom had a king size bed and in the living room there was a pull out bed. Outside of the living room was the outdoor pool. I was really worried about letting Brayden stay in the living room and him taking it upon himself to go out and swim (one of my biggest fears is drowning). Brayden ended up staying in the bedroom with Ryan, myself and Jase. The first night that we were there I quickly realized, with the symphony of snoring, that this was not going to work. So mommy went out into the living room. Awe quiet. We went to the beach each day and one day we rented a boat. On one of the days we went to a beach and there was a sign that read "Keep on the road or you will get stuck." It then pointed forwards to two different roads our choices were the gravel road or the beach road, which was just the beach. Ryan decided to go on the gravel road. This was the wrong choice. We got ourselves unstuck and then Ryan decided he should keep going. Wrong choice. We got stuck again. Oh my goodness. I would push on the gas and when I would stop the tires would keep going. We were completely high centered. Ryan went up to a boat rental place and they got a tractor and pulled us out. They said, "normally we charge $40, but I will just charge you $20." Little robbers. I think they made two roads just so that they could make money. But we got out and enjoyed a day at the beach.

Jase and daddy.

All the boys relaxing.

Swimming in the pool
