I was in the middle. What a treat to snuggle these two yummy boys.Keani

Here are some cute videos of my kiddos. The first one of Keani goes in and out of focus...another case of the grubby mitts on camera lenses I guess. Jett is singing "Go Diego Go!" and Keani is laughing at Kai on the last one. I sure wish I realized my stupid bra strap was sticking out...just ignore that!


This is what Halloween does to children......and our bed...
Kai fell asleep watching tv in our room, apparently eating himself to sleep.
No, this isn't a nice "glamour shots" glow, this is "grubby little mitts touching things they know they shouldn't just 'cause they get the thrill of being naughty" glow. Oh well, you can still see how cute Keani is behind the "glow."

Captain Jackson won this huge pumpkin at school. At the last minute before he left for school that day, he ran up to grab a dollar out of his bank to buy a ticket for the pumpkin raffle and he won!
The traditional Pocahontas and Keani as a bee.
"Jett, look at me, look at me Jett....fine DON'T look at me Jett..."
"...Gotcha!" The Red and Green Dragon strikes again...(the hand-me down from each brother dragon:)
Kalea the "Spider Countess." I was going to put fake eyelashes on this girl, and when I went to put them on, her real eyelashes were longer than the fake ones! So pretty!
Pirate Captain Jackson and Kung Fu Master Kai
The whole bunch after getting their loot at "Trunk or Treat."

Crazy Hair Day

It was "Crazy Hair Day" at school. On D.A.R.E week, there is a theme for every day. Kalea had crazy pony tails and red spray in her hair, and Jackson had red spray in his too.

Volleyball Coach!

My brother Brandon and I got to be the coaches of Kalea and Bekah's volleyball team. It was very unexpected for both of us, but it was sure fun. Brandon did a great job, and I just stood by and cheered everyone on!

Zoo Day

Jody and I and all the kids of course tried our luck at the Denver Zoo on a free day. It was certainly a zoo...and there were animals too. It was fun though, and we couldn't have asked for better weather.
Our friend and neighbor, Garrett came with us too.
That makes 11 kids, and 2 adults! Slightly crazy, but the kids slept great that night!

Caramel Apples!

We made caramel apples at the Adam's house, as you can see, it was a hit all around!
Jody, ever creative, showed us how to make these "mini" caramel apples. The kids loved it!

My Birthday

My 31st birthday was great. Tom and the kids made me breakfast in bed. They gave me a BIG huge birthday card and a bunch of yummy chocolates from "Mountain Man." They know how to make me happy. :) Then Tom surprised me by taking the day off! It was a Friday and the kids didn't have school, so we had a 3 day weekend. It was beautiful weather, so my family met us at Panera for lunch, and we ate outside on the patio. My mom made me my favorite favorite cake ever...german chocolate! Ono! Nobody makes it like her. Then my parents watched the kids while Tom and I went out. I felt so loved.:)

Poor mister Jett fell the night before and hit his head on the corner of the railing. He had a pretty good gash that we butterflied together, but as you can see, it was oozing the next day. :(

Me, re-enacting blowing out my candles, since it didn't get caught on camera the first time. I'm such a nerd!

Keani 4 months

Baby Keani, smiling and showing off her baby blues.

Toilet Papered!

Here is our house after some friends (Kinslows!) t.p.ed us! It was funny because we were watching Jody and Kevin's kids while she was in the hospital after having the baby. The kids come bursting into our room on Saturday morning and say "Mom! Dad! You have to look outside! There's toilet paper everywhere!" It was in a scared, something-is-terribly-wrong voice. We both started laughing and explained that someone just played a practical joke on us. When we told them it was probably one of our friends, they seemed to calm down, then proceeded to go outside at 7:30 am and play in it! One of our neighbors is a Korean grandma that speaks almost no english. She was outside looking at us like we had maggots crawling out our ears! She came over and asked, "The children?" I said no, our children didn't do it, and tried to explain that it was a joke. No harm. I need to learn Korean apparently. She obviously couldn't understand why we were smiling about it!

(No we don't have 2 minivans, we were just using the Adam's van for transporting all the kiddos.)

The kids even played the "mummy" game with it!
