Babies

Congrats to our sweet friends Josh & Kelly who welcomed their first son into the world this evening! Patriot Shane was born at 7:45 PM. He was 7 lbs, 2 oz and 19.5 inches long. He was about a month early, so the hospital has him in the nursery to monitor his breathing. Be praying for this sweet family. They are going to have so much fun with their sweet little bundle. Feel free to send your congratulations their way by going to Kelly's blog.

Also, our other sweet friends BJ & Lindsay found out they are having twins!!! We are so excited for them...and I'm secretly a little jealous. ;) You can keep up with their journey through Lindsay's blog, and feel free to congratulate them too!

Congratulations to you all!!

Congratulations, Kelsey Lou!!

Congratulations on your graduation. I am so very proud of you! There is so much ahead of you. I am amazed at the woman you are, and I want you to know that I aspire to be like my baby sister in so many ways. I am sad to know you will be leaving us soon, but I can't wait to see where God takes you!!!

I love you!!!!

I'm so blessed!!

Last night, Caden (who has been averaging 9 hours sleep a night for the last several weeks) slept from 7:30 p.m. until 7:30 a.m.! Carson averages 12 hours a night also! They are both really good nappers. I think God knows that I might lose my salvation if my children weren't good sleepers. ;)

A magazine I got in the mail yesterday said that by 4 months of age, babies sleep about 6-8 hours consecutively. My boys must be geniuses with the advancements they've already mustered!

Carson's 2nd Birthday and Mother's Day

What a wonderful and busy weekend! Today, Carson turned 2! I can't believe that he is 2 already! My sweet boy is so big. We had a very fun celebration with about 50 people in honor of him on Saturday. We had wonderful fajitas thanks to Cary, and a jumphouse in the backyard that both young and young at heart enjoyed. It was so much fun, and Carson added plenty of entertainment for the bunch. Then today, we celebrated Mom's Day altogether at Mom's house after church. The guys made all of the mom's a wonderful tri-tip steak dinner----yum!!! And then we enjoyed each other's company and the gorgeous Colorado weather. Here are some fun pictures from our weekend:

Carson's New Toy

Carson was given a toddler dunebuggy, and he LOVES it! He has spent hours in our backyard the last few days riding round and round in it and laughing hysterically at Fisher (our dog) trying to catch him. It's a pretty cool toy, I have to admit!

Also, our church is doing a mom's day video, so I had an excuse to have someone take a picture of me and the boys. :)
