Yeah, I know...no one is reading this blog anymore due to my shocking lack of posting...I have no excuse. Well, I have no *good* excuse...but for those of you still checking my blog (hi mom!), I thought I would give you an update on the fam:
Caden is raising heck more every day, but is darn cute when he spontaneously hugs/kisses mom or decides to share his toys (gasp) with his sister.
Skylar is now talking up a storm, and let's be honest, is pretty sassy! She is so much more of a handful than Caden was at this age...her favorite hobby right now is getting as messy at possible, usually from playing in the dirt in the backyard.
Josh is still in school and getting ready to go into finals. BOO!!! Finals are seriously of the devil, but after this round, year one of law school is done! Yay!!! Shoot...two more to go.
Aubrey is taking care of munchkins and working at Pottery Barn...I know, you're jealous, right? But unfortunately, she is a really bad blogger who never posts about anything!
And what you really came for:
Aubrey at Ragnar, my first long distance race since high school. Awesome.
Daddy built and painted birdhouses with the kiddos...we have yet to actually *utilize* said birdhouses, but they are darn cute!
Caden has a girlfriend. I'm pretty sure they are getting married.
Oh and he has taken up drinking. Root beer, that is...(c:
Can somebody tell me how I have a 4 year-old??? When did this happen??? More importantly, when did he get so BIG???
He is so hilarious, he keeps us laughing (sometimes not "ha ha funny", more of the "ha ha you are in so much trouble")...the other day he was being pretty crazy and so daddy threatened him with a spanking. Thinking super quick and with hands raised to the defense told dad "Let's just get one thing straight!!! I DO NOT LIKE SPANKINGS!" Josh was laughing so hard that he obviously didn't recieve said spanking. (c:
He is totally obsessed with trains, too (I mean, what kid isn't???)...that is pretty much how we keep both of the little crazies busy most of the time. And while of course they don't get along all the time, he is a pretty great big brother and enjoys torturing...er, I mean *playing* with his little sister, even when she destroys EVERYTHING he ever builds. (c:
We can't help but be a little (okay, maybe a lot) proud of him and we LOVE that he is part of our family.
So my embarrassing lack of blogging may or may not be due to the fact that I cannot for the life of me figure out how to download my pictures off my camera to this computer. I can do it from our laptop, but not this computer. It's just pathetic. I know.
However, I am very good at stealing photos off facebook and so that is what I did. Mwah ha ha. I know, it's totally ridiculous that I don't just figure it out. (c:
So without further ado, I give you my stolen Christmas pictures. Thanks Auntie Moriah and Papa Pat!
Everytime we ask her to smile, we get this:
My hansome and getting way too big boy
Skylar with her Uncle Eli
This was hilarious...Caden found a shield at the house and is *CONVINCED* that Grandpa Ron uses it to fight dragons. And of course, Grandpa Ron is doing his best to make sure that he stays convinced...(c:
This is as good as it gets for a family picture this year. So close, and yet, so far...
The kids are absolutely *LOVING* the time with Daddy home...can't you tell?
I guess Daddy is enjoying it a little, too.
Hope you all had a great Christmas, too! Happy New Year!!!
