Halloween 2008

Well Halloween went off without a hitch! Alex started out the day as Buzz Lightyear and ended the night as Tuck the Turtle from Wonderpets. Jordan was a crusade knight and enjoyed his evening with friends.

Espera!! Espera!!

Alex was spinning on the tire swing and saying "Espera". I think he thought it meant "Help Me" but my sister tells me that it means "I wish". Oh well, he is only 2 still so I can't expect him to be totally fluent in a second language before he is fluent in his first!

Lookin' for some Fishes!

Flying to see Aunty Katie in Colorado!

Alex, Kendra and I like to go to the park every day before nap time. I am trying to get in a few extra minutes before the snow flies! Before we leave the park by the lake the kids like to lay down to look for the fish...we haven't found any yet but the remain undeterred.

Fall in MN

Fall has come and the leaves are beautiful. It was perfect weather this weekend for playing outside and cleaning up the yards. The rain last night made the leaves fall faster but it is still pretty!

Conversation at Bed Time

I was getting Alex ready for bed last night and this is how the conversation went:
Alex: "Mom, you give me that ladder?"
Mom: "Sure, but you have to lay still."
Alex: "Firemans use that ladder to rescue babies."
Mom: "Really, rescue babies?"
Alex: "Yep babies that climb up to the top of the water tower. Then they climb back down with them. ...That's AMAZING!"

His little brain is always working!

The front is done...

This is how we spent most of our weekends this summer. Chad and I jackhammered out the front step on Memorial Day weekend and Chad put the final touches on the actual steps last weekend. I don't know who is happier, me when I can actually step out on the deck to get the mail, or the mailman when he doesn't have to walk thru the wood maze to drop the mail off!

First day of School 2008

Jordan has been in school for 2 weeks now and I still can't believe this is his last year at St. Philip's or that he is a 5th grader!
Good bye, I love you, now go away!

Brainerd, MN

A friend of the family offered his cabin in July so we took him up on the offer. We had a great 4 days of sun and sand!

Can you feel the love?

Happy 4th!

We celebrated the 4th at Mom's house with a 1st Birthday party for Evie. The Grabow clan joined in the fun too so it was a great day. We painted Jordan's mohawk for the occasion.

Alex helping Evie open her presents. She is a big 1 year old now!!!

I'm Back!!!

Well, it has been a while but I have finally got my computer back up and running and have pictures to post. My computer crashed in April and I was able to recover most of my pictures but want to tell you all to back up your pictures!!! Anyway, here are some pics from our fun in June.
Alex sitting on the new sidewalk Chad put in on the front of the house.
Jordan's 10th Birthday! I can't believe he is 10 already!!!
Playing in the sprinkler.
We have been to the strawberry patch 4 times this summer and Alex can't get enough. I am sure he eats more than I bring home!!
