We made it.

Well, for those of you that wondered... we made it to Colorado. It was a lonnnng trip with the two munchkins, but we did it. Imagine this: Jeff driving, me in the passenger seat, Luke SCREAMING and Claire watching Diego for the 50th time. Oh, and The Killers playing really loud to drown out the screaming and Diego. Your jealous that you were not in the car right? Well, just thought I would leave a quick update! More soon...

Hi all... I'm sure that some of you received this link in an email, or if you frequent youtube you might have seen this too. I usually don't put things like this on my blog, but this one really got to me. If you have kids, or you want kids, you really should watch this. It's about car seats, i know... not that interesting right? Well, take the time to watch this. I learned a lot from this video. I am very quick to use the seat belt to latch Claire's car seat in to the car instead of using the latch system. Anyway, on a lighter note, we are off to Colorado for Thanksgiving! Should be sooo much fun! Here are a few things that I am Thankful for...

  1. Jesus
  2. Jeff
  3. Claire and Luke
  4. Our families
  5. Our friends
  6. Jeff's job
  7. Naps

I hope that you and your families have a very blessed Thanksgiving!

What do you think?

"Do not kiss your children so they will kiss you back, but so they will kiss their children."
-Noah Benshea

How do you feel about this quote? I really like it.

hello there...

I haven't blogged in a while. I will catch you up. Last weekend we had some friends over for dinner. Fun was had by all...even the kids. In all, there were three 5 1/2 month olds, and Claire. Claire had a great time playing with Korben and Eliana, Luke is old news. Let's see... there was more medical drama in our house. I feel like a live in an episode of "ER". Luke had a reaction to an antibiotic. Jeff took him to urgent care, and I took him to his doctor the next day. He's fine, but while we were in the office the doctor noticed Claire's constant wheezing. She decided that her current meds are not working well enough, so now we have to do breathing treatments a few times a day. How do you get a 2 year old to sit still for thirty minutes you ask? Diego. Go, Diego, Go!!! Claire is SO over the Wiggles, she has moved on to Diego. Well, that pretty much gives you a snapshot of my previous week... here are some pictures for your enjoyment!

Naked again, and again...

Does anyone know how to keep a almost two year old from stripping? Claire will NOT leave her clothes on. Every time I turn around she has taken her clothes off. That is fine and all, except, it is getting a little too cold to be in the nude! This will be a short post... however I wanted to share two videos with you all. The first video is of Luke and his friend Natalie. As you will see, Luke LOVES Natalie! The second video is of Claire, Grant and Natalie jumping on our bed (Claire's second favorite past time. Her first is getting naked!) I hope you all have a great weekend.
