Noah's first day of kindergarten!

Sweet Noah! When I woke him up the first words out of his mouth were "I need to get dressed, I can't be late!". He then looked outside and realized it was still dark. He decided it was funny he went to bed when it was light out and got up when it was dark out!
Sitting on his brothers bed getting ready!
Baby sister, ready for the walk to school!

Our sweet Noah. He looks so big and handsome! He loves his new school clothes, star wars shoes, back pack, lunch box and cup! He was seriously about to burst, he wanted to get to school! Andy is going to miss his playtime buddy. Noah says they are best brothers, which is better than best friends!

Andy wore his backpack on the walk to school too! Daddy got to carry the sorted construction paper:)

We saw friends on our walk to school, even found out one little girl will be in Noah's class! We got in the building and Noah could not get to class fast enough!!!

He hung his backpack up and without a hug goodbye he ran in the class and sat with friends.

Our big boy in his big class! We are so proud of him and happy for him...but man we miss him!

We had not left the building and Andy was already missing Noah! We love you Noah! We hope you have a great and fun year in kindergarten!!!!!!!

...thinking back to the past years and Noah's first days of preschool and mothers day out...

Our little really not so little any more. He is almost four and so cute to tell everyone so! He loves to pick me flowers and begs to buy me some every time we are at the store. When Josh brought me some for my birthday Andy wanted to know why he did not get to go along and buy me pink roses. So sweet!

Recently we went on a train ride. On the train ride there were pretend train robbers. They got onto the train and forgot they were supposed to be stealing money and instead gave away money. They then yelled "train robbin' doesn't pay!" Last night at dinner Andy and Noah were both dressed like woody, complete with cowboy boots and hats. Andy kept saying "red robin doesn't pay. Red robin doesn't pay." It took me a long time to figure out why he was saying that...I wonder what he thought red robin had to do with trains!

Emma's first time at church!!

Our sweet little girl, on her two month birthday...all dressed up with somewhere to go!

She looked so sweet in her butterfly dress from Grandma Judy!


She also looked so big all strapped in her carseat!

Noah was so proud and excited for Emma to be going along!!

Such a sweet big brother! Emma will always know how beautiful she is with her brothers around. Hearing them gush over her and talk about how pretty she is just warms my heart!!! They have definitely learned well listening to Josh tell me how pretty he thinks I am :)

Church went really well! It was so nice to finally introduce Emma to everyone!

Birthday fun!!

My birthday was so special. Having a day with the kids was so nice. The boys spent time drawing me pictures. It was too cute! Then when Josh got home he took us out to dinner. It was such a treat.

Emma loved playing in the bouncy chair while I opened my gifts and adorable cards from the boys. Josh did such a good job making me feel special! He had taken the boys shopping and bought me a gorgeous butterfly necklace. They were so proud to have bought me jewelry. It was adorable! Josh even bought me flowers the day before my birthday so I could enjoy them while he was at work:).

One happy Mama!


Thursday, August 2, 2012 almost kindergartener

Our sweet Noah. I look at Emma and think Noah should be that tiny, not Emma. But he is so big. Ready for kindergarten this month!! I am so nervous and so excited for him. I pray he makes good friends, loves his teachers, learns a lot and remembers how much we love him when he is not with us.


Noah has had a big summer!!! He has a love for all things water. We got swim lessons in prior to Emma being born and Noah has proven himself as quite the fish! He even loves those big body slides at the water parks! I never would have dreamed that when he was little. He used to have a big fear of the water.

Noah has really been doing great this summer. He loved vbs. He learned to ride his bike without training wheels too! It was too funny. Josh had the boys outside riding their bikes. He came inside and said Noah wanted to take the training wheels off. I was shocked. I tried to get Noah to put pants on and he insisted he would be fine. I went outside after feeding Emma and Josh was holding onto the back of Noah's bike while he was riding around. Josh took a break and was visiting with me up on the driveway by the truck. Out of the corner of my eye I could see Noah riding his bike. We then realized Noah was out in the culdesac by himself riding his bike without training wheels! It was so neat.

Noah loves riding bikes, coloring and drawing, bakugans, slushes, hummus, and playing games on people's phones. He has really been having fun playing dress up with Andy as super heroes and holding his baby sister:)

I will miss him in the house during the day next year!!

Olympics 2012

One of my fondest memories as a child was watching the Olympics with my family. Watching this year with Beth and her kids and then our little family has been so fun. Beth and kids left town yesterday, so last night was just the five of us watching. It was so fun. Diving was on and it was neat talking about the different countries. On opening ceremony night Noah equated each country with the Cars 2 character that lived there. Last night he was recognizing russia and china's flags. Andy said "I want to win the bronze medal!" It was a good time to explain how you win and everyone wants gold!
