Corban practicing his alphabet.

The first line of the alphabet looks great. Guess I know what we need to work on. They love this easel. Thank you "Santa" (aka Mom, Dad, Lindsay). Now if they could stop breaking all the chalk into tiny pieces. :)

Sunday Best

He looks so grown up! If you look close his belt buckle is Sponge Bob. He loves it.

Izzy is not always easy to photograph... She loves pretty dresses. I even put cute flowers in her hair and before church they were missing. Oh, well. I tried.

kids are funny

Sometimes our kids come up with the funniest ideas. Sometimes they are so much more intelligent than we give them credit, for example:

We were out on a drive, the whole family. Corban tells Dave he wants to go the store to get candy. Dave tells him he doesn't have any money, asks Corban if he has any money. Corban says yes (his money bank of change), but then says they could use the Dave's card. Dave asks what card. Corban asks dave if he can use his card to buy candy. Dave asks him what card. He tells Dave he wants the card that is in his wallet so he can go to Harmon's and buy candy. Dave asked him a few questions about why they would take a card, and how the store would get money. Corban just kept telling Dave you use the card to get things.

He is a smart kid. I guess he has just seen us use the Debit card and figured it out.

I need to get better at writing down their funny stories, there are so many times I have to turn my head away or leave the room so that I don't laugh or encourage him sometimes. He says some pretty funny stuff.

Did I ever tell you he likes to make up stories? He starts with a truth and then goes where ever his cute little brain takes him.

W while back he told his teacher, "Once my mom took me to the doctor to get some shots. They looked at my head and legs. Then they cut me up into pieces and stuffed me with socks. Then my mom took me home."

Where does he come up with that stuff?

Come on Baby . . . let's do the twist.

Corban's first attempt at Twister. We played while his cousins were at Grandma Ruby's, the week of Thanksgiving. He did pretty good too, only needing little reminders, "other foot", "try your other left", etc. I meant to have all the kids play when they got back, I guess I forgot.


I meant to put these up last week. I just never got around to it. We went bowling with Grandpa Gordon, Rebecca, Marty, Alayna, Carter, and Preston. My kids loved it! They were all over the place. Then they kept asking everyday after that if we were going bowling with Grandpa. Corban even TOLD grandpa they were going to go bowl later on our way to Carolyn and Conrad's house. He just likes to make up his mind and stick with it.

The Progression or Corban's bruising.

Poor Corban got his first black eye. This is what he gets for jumping on the coffe table after I asked him not too... So I guess technically it was my fault too. I tried to stop him from the jumping and he tried to bolt and he fell and smacked right into the table. Gina witnessed the whole terrible incident.

So now I have given my son a broken leg (Feb 2007) and a black eye.

Do you think they're excited?

You can almost smell it, the glorious plastic Pine.

Just a preview of some of the fantastic pictures Grandpa Gordon took last week. It was so much fun to be together. A little crowded at times, but it is all my mom ever wanted- all her babies (grand and not so grand) under one roof. I love how relaxed Izzy looks in the first picture.

(Ian just wanted you all to know how happy he was to sit for this picture. He loves his cousins. )
