6 Wonderful Years!

That's right, on the 14th, Phil and I celebrated 6 years of marriage. Time has gone by so fast. It is so hard to believe we have been married that long! I am so thankful for my wonderful husband. Here are 6 things I love about him!



1 - I love how romantic he is. Not just on special occasions, but just for fun! Example: We went skiing last week and when we got off at the top of the mountain he stopped and gave me a ring! So sweet and totally romantic!



2 - His fun loving spirit. He is like a little kid at heart. Our life never has a dull moment with him around! He can put a smile on my face anytime of day!



3 - His love for the Lord! I prayed for a spouse that loved the Lord and the Lord has blessed me with one.



4 - He is the worlds best daddy! I can't even begin to describe how wonderful of a father he is. I couldn't make it through one day without him. Neither could Carson! From the begining he got up in the middle of the night and I have only had to give a few bathes because he loves doing that! We love him so much!

5 - His sacrifice for us! He constatly is giving up things he loves to do for us and never complains! Except basketball and baseball! :)

6 - His blue eyes. That is the first thing that I fell in love with, and am still in love with. He can hold me close and I just get lost in his eyes.

I love you honey and am so thankful the Lord brought us together! I couldn't live one day without you and am so blessed to have you as a husband! Thank you for loving me all these years! I look forward to many more wonderful years!

Love, Your Wife

For those of you that know Phil really well, you can imagine what he thinks about this picture. It is my favorite one!



He loves Phil's boots. They are wayyyyyy to big, but he has to try and drag them on his feet! Priceless!

We love it all, the music, the weather, the lights, the suprises, the secrets, Santa Clause, Jesus' birth, family, and hopefully snow! Carson seems to be enjoying the "nomans" (snowman) and the "tris tree" (christmas tree). I hope you all enjoy and have a wonderful Chrsitmas season!

Fork Fun!

Well, Carson has become Mr. Independent these days. So, here are some pictures of him feeding himself. He loves his spoons and forks. Although he doesn't use them the right way!
Who needs a fork when you have the best utensil, your hand! Yumm!!!


This is how Carson uses his spoon!



New Hat!

Well, since winter isn't far away I have been in search for Carson a winter hat. I had looked everywhere and finally decided to check one last time at Old Navy. I found this cute toboggon and it was only .90 cents. What a deal. Carson loves it. I brought it home that day and he had to wear it ALL day long. Even though it wasn't even cold outside. So, here he is in his hat playing ball outside! I think we may have a future all star on our hands! I am sure there will be more hat pictures to come because as I am typing this Carson is in his diaper, eating raisins and wearing his hat. Enjoy!


This is his new smile! Cute huh?

Sick Boys

It has been so long since I have updated our blog. I have 2 sick boys at home with me. So, you can imagine that all my time is going to them right now. Hopefully in the next few days I can get some time to myself and update our blog. I have so many fun things to post!

I also wanted to say "Thank You!" to my very sweet friend Lindy. She brought us a wonderful dinner last night! It was a life saver for all of us! Thanks so much Lindy for making my day!

Pumpkin Fun!

Pumpkin Fun!


Carson has fallen in love with pumpkins! Everytime we see pumpkins he gets so excited and says pumpkin (of course it doesn't sound exactly like that). He is going to be so sad when all the pumpkins are gone for the season. We took him last week to the pumpkin patch. He got dressed up in his costume and we took some pictures. He was so facinated with all the pumpkins and wanted to pick all of them up. Here are some of our pumpkin patch pictures.




There was a tractor there and Carson LOVED sitting on it! He was calling it a "car". So cute!


Scarecrow meet scarecrow!


Finally, a pumpkin, Carson could pick up. He carried it around with him the whole time. We had to buy it and bring it home. Each day we go out and "play" with the pumpkin.

Bye-Bye pumpkins!


A look back! This is Carson's picture at the pumpkin patch last year! Wow, how much he has changed in just one year!



More Pumpkin Fun!

Painting Pumpkins

This weekend, Brynlee and Carson painted pumpkins. It was so much fun! They loved coloring the pumpkins and themselves. Here are some pictures of them painting and their beautiful pumpkins.

Here are their cute pumpkins! Brynlee's is on the left and Car-Car's is on the right!

We decided to dress them up in their costumes! They both laughed when they saw each other. They didn't know what to think! Carson keep touching her candy corn and laughing so hard. Brynlee was saying "funny". Such fun memories!


What a cute Candy Corn fairy!!!!

Who are you NOT voting for?????

We all know the election is at its highest peak! Which means that it is on every radio station, TV and in every conversation. This is a cute video of how it has effected our children. Carson's best bud, Brynlee, was over playing yesterday. She was running around the house saying something that sounded so funny. Amanda said "do you hear what she has started saying?". I couldn't understand her until she said it to me. She was running around saying " Barack Obama". So ironic since we are all McCain supporters. It's crazy what a 21 month old can pick up from talk about the election. We laughed so hard because the way she says it is hularious! You can even hear Carson in the background laughing. He thought she was so funny also! Hope you get a laugh out of this also!

Softball Mondays

Softball Mondays
Phil plays on one of our churches softball teams. So, every Monday night he has a game. We usually make the games unless they are the late game. Carson loves going to the games. Anything to do with a ball, bat and outside! Here are some pictures from one of the games.
Carson is watching Phil hit. He hit a home run! Go Phil!


Playing ball with his buddy Averi! She also loves the games!


Playing with his "Big Boy" friend Carter. Carson loves to play with Carter and watches everything he does. Carter, thanks for letting him play ball!


Priceless! Usually at least one of the kiddos falls or scrapes themselves at the game. This particular night it was muddy from rain. Carson's best friend, Brynlee, fell right into the mud. Bless her heart, but what a cutie!

Favorite Things


Here are a few of my favorite things!

Carson loves his blankets. He will pull them out of his crib and drag them around with him. He will also lay on the floor with them randomly. So sweet!

Carson's best friend is his Daddy. He wants to be just like him. Sunday afternoon Phil and I were in the bedroom when Carson walked in with Phil's sock and watch on. Priceless! He wouldn't let us take them off!

This time of the year gives me the fever to bake. The other night I was making a pumpkin cake and Phil wanted one of the beaters. Well, Carson thought he needed one also. So, I let him have one and we learned how to lick instead of bite. Since then when Carson sees the beaters he starts begging to lick it. I think we have created a monster. Here he is enjoying the pumpkin batter.



Here is a picture of my silly boys. They are so funny! Carson loves to play and be silly with his Daddy!

I bought Carson some blocks and dump truck at Dittos for Kiddos this year. He has loved playing (really throwing) them. He loves it when we sit and help him build something tall so he can nock it down. When I took this picture Carson turned to kiss the blocks. So cute. He loves to kiss things.

Boys and their Toys


Boys and their Toys


Carson likes to play with his toys, but loves to play with his "real" toys. Here are some pictures of him playing with his "real" toys. I often wonder if he really needs any toys. Just give him a broom, ball, phone, cart, etc. and he is extreamly happy!
