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! :)

My boys are developing such personalities! We looked at Halloween costumes online one day(a few months ago) and the boys made up their mind that day! Carson was going to be a Black Ninja and Kellen a scarecrow!  How can a Mommy turn down those requests!  Of course I thought it would have been adorable for them to all have coordinated and themed, but they thought otherwise!  Poor Cruz got stuck with a hand-me-down of Kellen's.  He wasn't too hurt though and everyone was happy!  Enjoy my little Ninja, Buzz, and Scarecrow!

Okoboji Vacay

 Gabe and I and our boys got away for a few days to relax in Okoboji!  I took a lot of pictures on my phone so these are just the ones I captured on my camera!  It was pretty chilly the entire time we were there, but we still had fun mini golfing, going to the beach, going to Arnold's Park, and playing at a park and splash pad.  
It was so nice to get away and not have to worry about anything for a few days! We are slowly getting our house put back in order after the big storm that hit, but it was so nice not to think about that or anything else while we were away!  
The only day I got out my camera was the day at the beach!  So Enjoy! :)

4th of July

Our 4th was spent in Boji!  Our parents were gracious enough to watch our boys for a couple days so Gabe and I had a couple kid free days before they joined us!  It was so weird and quiet without the boys, but we tried to enjoy the couple days we had by relaxing.  My parents brought the boys up on Sunday and we spend a couple days on the lake with them!  They love the lake as much as we do so it was fun to see their excitement at all the little things!  Below are a few pictures from our 4th!

Cruz passed out on the boat- about the only time he didn't mind the boat!

Family time on the back of the boat!
