Kyla Reading

A Bible

This is the best book every.....REALLY!!!

Kyla's Baby

Kyla is staring to really enjoy her baby dolls. It is really funny and sweet to watch her interact with her babies.

Should I put her in the bucket?

Sure, It looks like a great place for a baby.

All ready to go. I much prefer the two wheel approach...this way I can see my baby.

Outside for a stroll.

  • Kyla started walking
  • Kyla turned 1
  • I got glasses
  • Colin turned 3
  • We sold our house 
  • Life is happening...enough said
Check back often to see/read in detail about the aforementioned and many other things. I'll try my best to get this blog updated sooner than later.

Wreck-it Ralph

This past Saturday we (as in me and Makenna and Colin... Jared got to stay home with Kyla) went to watch Wreck-it Ralph at Jack Trice. Thanks Auntie Sarah for finding out about this FREE and fun event. It was a ton of fun and the kiddos had a blast.

Colin @ 3

These are Colin's stats @ 3 years :
  • Height - 3' 3"
  • Weight - 33 pounds

Here is a highlighted list of some things that stand out about Colin @ 3 years :
  • He LOVES to pretend play with Makenna.
  • He can count to 20.
  • He knows most of his letters and their sounds. He does best at telling you a word that starts with a letter sound rather than identifying the letter. 
  • He is into super heros... Spiderman, Superman, knight/princes, and pirates.
  • He will spend hours digging in dirt/sand. 
  • He gets himself dressed and likes to have a say in what he wears.
  • He loves food and will eat most anything that I make for him.
  • He can verbally spell his name.
  • A few of his favorite toys include; cars, tractors, his pretend gun, a plastic camera, and a sword.
  • He has gotten in the habit of sticking things in his pockets. I however have yet to get into the habit of checking his pockets for trinkets before washing them.
  • He works really hard at 25-50 piece puzzles and he does them very well with little help.
  • He continues to have a rather laid back and quiet personality.
  • He is a cuddle bug. He always wants to be rocked before both his nap and before bed at night.

Colin's Tractor Party

Colin requested a tractor theme for his birthday party. I think that he was very happy with the results.

Snow in May

Yep that is right, snow in May.

The kicker to this is that just this past weekend I packed all the winter coats and snow pants and sent them to my parents house because we are moving so the kiddos can't even go out and enjoy this really unusual gift of snow in May.

Although I wasn't able to get any pictures of the kids playing in the snow, I did get some of Kyla enjoying the snow from the window.

 This was too cute not to get a picture.
