New Cousins

September 22, 2009

Our kids decided that having only two cousins were not enough, so they convinced Uncle Brian and Auntie Sarah that they needed some more.

And boy did they deliver! (yes, pun intended)

We headed to Littleton today to see the new little ones who were just a bit over a day old.

All of our kids just loved the new babies and wanted to hold them a lot.

Aimee's Birthday Party

September 19, 2009

We all went to Denver to Casa Bonita to celebrate Aimee's birthday today.

The kids always like Casa Bonita, and today was definitely no exception.

Drew wanted to sit by the birthday girl

No matter how you look at him, Drew is one really cute boy.

Nona's Birthday Party

September 17, 2009

We all headed over to Nona and PaPa John's house today to celebrate Nona's birthday.

The kids never need an excuse to go to Nona and PaPa John's house, but they especially like it when there's cake along with their usual ice cream.

They even helped Mommy to decorate her cake.

Fun Day

September 13, 2009

Sometimes we are really surprised how our kids can make their own fun.

This happens a lot, and today we snapped a few pictures.

Drew's Honey Stand

September 6, 2009

Today Drew all of a sudden wanted us to come to his room to visit his honey stand.

We didn't quite know what to expect, but we were happy to go find out.

Sure enough, he made himself a honey stand, using lots and lots of honey jars we made for the girls' second birthday party.

Each one was sold for a different, random amount of pretend money. We spent a good half hour buying as much pretend honey as we could afford.

In case we didn't know what it was, Drew made a sign

Cute little proprietor

Having a great childhood
