My Muscle Men!

I don't really have anything to say about this picture. It has just become one of my favorite of all my 3 boys. All 3 of them showing off their huge muscles. My boys are just growing up too fast.

A Little About My Not So Little Baby

Peyton has started getting upset at such silly things. Whenever I get my camera out or hold up my phone like I'm taking a picture, he gets SO excited to come look at it. So he runs -yes, he's started running! even though he's way too little to be doing that - over to me and if I don't let him hold the camera or phone, he storms off and throws a little fit. This is what he looks like:

But this is what my cute boy looks like most of the time. And yes he actually did put that hat on all by himself, he LOVES putting on hats. He thinks he's so cool.

Fun At the Zoo

We went to the zoo with my sister Vannessa and the two cute girls she is a nanny for. My boys had met the girls before and were SO excited to see them again, at least the older one. (I'm thinking there's a crush or two...) We had a lot of fun, but I think my boys could go to the zoo every day and not get sick of it.

I think it's funny that in both the following pictures, only Peyton is looking at the camera, and that's only in one of them.
The zoo recently built a new carousel. My boys were so excited to ride, except for Peyton. He wasn't sure what to think as I was putting him on it. But as the pictures show, in the end, he loved it and of course threw a fit when it was over. (see post below :)

As the ride was just starting:
About halfway through:

I'm finally doing a tag...

So I've been tagged before, but when I don't immediately do it, I forget about it. It's not that I'm being rude or ignoring the tag, I'm just forgetful. But for some reason I didn't forget about this one... I was supposed to take 10 random pictures in my house, so here they are...This is Easton showing off his two missing teeth. He had to get the second tooth pulled on Monday (not because of cavities or any fault of my own, but I'll spare you the gross details). He will probably be without his two front teeth for 2 years! (I realize he looks a little funny, but it was hard for him to smile big enough to show the gap.)

This is what Peyton was doing while I was wandering my house looking for something at least a little interesting about me. I love pictures of sleeping babies!

This is what Easton and Cole were doing when they should have been picking up toys.
These are the lion cupcakes we made at preschool today. These are Cole's (Easton had already eaten his) pretty good for a 3-year-old, huh?
This is one wall of the preschool room I've started setting up in my basement. This is my first year trying to run a preschool and most of the reason things have been so hectic around here.
This is a rebate check I got in the mail today! I love free money, even if it comes from beer companies. I say, "Hey, if I don't take their beer money, that will just leave more money for them to make beer." ;) Don't worry, no beer had to be purchased to get the rebate.

These are 3 pictures of the wall I recently "decorated". Compared to how most of you decorate, this is pretty lame, but I'm still proud of it, mostly just cause I finally did something decorative. I painted the wall all by myself one night when Seth was at Youth Conference, and then put the rest of the stuff together, but I will give Seth the credit he deserves for hanging things on the wall. Don't they look so level?
These are my two storage areas that I finally organized! One for food and the other for toiletries/paper products. Now I can finally see everything I have, instead of having to dig through bags piled on top of each other on the basement floor.

I tag anyone who actually made it to the bottom of this!! I think this is fun to see things that people wouldn't normally blog about.

The Big 3-0!

I can't believe I forgot to do this on your birthday, but I guess that's pretty typical of my posts, I'm always late.
I am so lucky to be married to you! And our boys are just as lucky to have you as their dad! I can't believe you're 30, you hardly look (and act) a day over 25. Thanks for your love, your patience, your hard work, filling our lives with laughter and your friendship. I love you babe!

Guess I need to take more pictures of you with the older boys, especially East. :)

Are pigs flying?

The other day (actually for Seth's birthday) I made broccoli as a side (since that's his favorite veggie). We've had it plenty of times before, but Easton and Cole have never liked it (of course Peyton has), but I still always had them at least try one bite. This time they both ate it up SO fast. But if that weren't crazy enough.... I made a cheesecake for dessert which they usually love. Easton said "No thank you." And Cole took one bite and then asked me "Can I just have the broccoli instead?" He pushed his cheesecake aside and grabbed the bowl with the rest of the broccoli and finished it off!! What in the world?!?
