I'm back!!!!!

Boy has it been a long time since I've last posted!  Summer came and I got so engulfed in our summer fun that I didn't do much on my computer except check my email. . .every so often! :)  We had a FANTASTIC summer!  The boys are at such FUN ages (no nursing, bottles, baby food, ect.) In the almost 6 years since we had Carson I have always been in that baby stage with one of my boys and this summer Cruz was old enough (and I wasn't popping out another one) that we had a lot of fun at the park, Okoboji, Zoo, Children's Museum, pool. . . the list goes on!  I will share some random pictures of our summer in a  recap!

Today was our first day back to school with kids! I am still working at CAM as a middle school resource teacher.  Gabe is in his 2nd year at Harlan teaching 4th grade, and Carson started KINDERGARTEN today. . . yes, Kindergarten!  We decided to make him a Harlan Cyclone this year since we want to end up in the area in the next year or so!  He was so excited to ride with Gabe this morning to school.  I will miss seeing him every day, but know he is in great hands!  I can't wait to hear all about his first day!

Hopefully more blog updates to come soon! :)

Most of these pictures our from Okoboji because that's the only time my camera came out of the bag! Will try harder on that as well! :)











Carson learned to ride his bike without TRAINING WHEELS!!!! PROUD MOMENT!
TUBING for the first time! 

Cruz was brave enough to tube too!





Cruz's new thing when he dances. . the pouty pucker lips and fist pump!!!
Love these 3 so much!
Gabe's brother got married! Great reason for a picture! :)

Easter 2015

It's not very often I get a night on the computer. . .but since I have that chance, I thought I'd take advantage.  I decided to download my pictures I took over the weekend which lead me here to sharing a few of them!  We had a fantastic weekend with family!  It was fun watching the cousins interact and seeing all our family.  Feeling very blessed!


 Playtime with Cousins!


Easter Egg Hunt! I may have caught an egg fight!

Kellen and Kyan!  He just loved holding his baby cousin!  Kyan was even giving Kellen Smiles!


Two dudes all ready for church! 

Grandpa and Grandma Baughman with the boys!

 Little stinker was all smiles until I got my camera out!

 New jammies from Grandpa and Grandma Kloewer, snacks, and ready to head home! Fun Weekend!

A little bit of everything

Not sure why, but my camera struggles to make an appearance from Christmas until about Valentine's day!  I am ALWAYS taking pictures on my phone but rarely uploading them to my computer!  Need to work on that!  Thought I'd share what I have taken since Christmas!

The boys loved our first snow outing!  Cruz wasn't a fan of just sitting in the snow, but absolutely LOVED sledding down the big hill in our back yard/the park with his brothers.  Of course all those pictures were on my phone. . not my camera!  Here are a few outside our house in a snow pile before heading to the big hill.





One Sunday afternoon, we had a dance party!  The boys love to dance. . right now a favorite is Shake it Off!  The shades were even whipped out for this one!  



My boys are Junk Food Junkies!  So it is no surprise that they loved going through their Valentine's boxes!  Cruz is a sucker for suckers. . .or anything sweet for that matter!  He has his mother's sweet tooth!


Kellen is always cheesin' it up! So Ornery!


Carson, with the help of Daddy, made a Ninja Turtle Valentine's box for his party!  He was pretty proud of it!


I love the many things daycare does.  Below was our Valentines' gift from the boys!  Such an awesome keepsake from my 3 little champions! Love them!

A little update!

It's been a few months since my last blog!  We are doing great! We had a wonderful Christmas! I absolutely love family time and so do the boys!   We are very busy keeping up with our 3 boys and love having Daddy home all the time since he doesn't coach this year!  
The boys are growing so much!  
Carson is in preschool and loves it!  He loves to color, write his name as well as his brothers names and other names he can sound out.  He loves playing basketball, cars, monster trucks, ect.  He is still our sweet boy that is all about the BOY stuff!
Kellen is in daycare and learning lots!  He loves to sing songs, play with his babies, play dress up, and loves all his stuffed animals.  He loves to play whatever Carson is playing and they are starting to really enjoy playing together.  He is sweet, ornery, has a huge personality, and is very protective of his Mommy.
Cruz is MR. INDEPENDENT!  It must be the 3rd child in him! :)  He is so content playing by himself or following his brothers around.  Absolutely adores his brothers!  He is pretty sensitive and gets his feeling hurt easily.  He is at such a fun age though!  He gets so excited at the littlest things and makes the most hilarious faces!  I love watching them all interact with each other!  

Below are a few pictures from over the holidays.  I don't get my camera out quite as much anymore.  I need to get better at that! :)

Visiting Santa on the train to the 'North Pole"
