A little update

So if you thought you were behind in blogging... try being me! I left off at Thanksgiving with hopes of catching up one day.. hmmm. So Christmas was great, despite the fact that the boys were getting over ear infections. They had so much fun opening and playing with all their presents. They also had fun decorating and undecorating their tree about 2000 times a day! :0)

So I'm sure we did some fun things between then and now. I know I have lots of pictures from Fun times with Auntie Kaitlyn while she was on vacation from her job on the ship... I'll have to hunt for those... That should be it's own monster post! :0)

One of the major highlights of winter was getting snow. We even had enough to go sledding at our park. Such a great time!

Jonathan has been becoming more and more little boy all the time. He talks non-stop and loves to fiddle around in the backyard. He also loves anything that has to do with boats or lately scuba diving.

David is SLOWLY starting to talk. He gets super frustrated when he can't tell you exactly what he wants. He is totally fearless and loves to climb, that makes for one nervous momma!

Thanksgiving Rodeo

Over Thanksgiving we went to Utah to see Kasandra's Rodeo. We rented a house to stay in and made an extra long weekend of it. The boys were both sickies pretty much the whole time so that wasn't so fun... we won't talk about the icky ride to Vegas or the million potty stops on the way home. The highlight of the trip was seeing Kasandra do what she does best! I took about a million pictures so be warned!
She was a little nervous to have so much family in the stands to watch.
My little cowboy sipping his sprite.

Watching all the activity in the ring... we even saw the boys bull riding.

She was so close to catching this little guy.

She HATES getting her picture taken so I had to sneak some in...

Kathy describes Rodeo as a whole lot of hurry up and wait... it was!

Amazing the way she can get that horse around the poles.

I love this one!

She was even closer to catching this one!

Laughing after trying to goat tie (not her event :0) )

Another amazing turn.

A disappointed phone call after knocking over some poles to her trainer (this cowgirl was on the phone all. the. time.)

The handsome hubby and David.

My two little cowboys in their western overalls... Jonathan's were a little too small.

A rare smile from the sickie.

Grandma Utah and Jonathan.

Stop that horse!

Running to tie up the goat (since then JT has added goat tying to his horsey rides with Thomas... he hops off and pretends to tie up David).

The loyal Skipper standing by while they see if the tie holds.

Sooo excited to be riding the horse.

Not quite as excited but David sure was.

4 Generations.

David loves to Read!

And then David loves to climb.... danger!!

Danger Jumper

One of Jonathan's favorite pastimes is jumping off things. One of my favorite pastimes is learning how to use my camera to get non blurry pictures of him! He loves to see himself fly even if it is a bit dangerous!
