Carter's Thanksgiving Feast.....

Yesterday Lane and I joined Carter's class for his Thanksgiving feast. It was so fun. Carter gets so excited when Lane joins the class. Lane fits right in with all the kids, you don't even know he is there.
Silly Carter and Lane the olive finger boy.:)

WHAT? My Newborn in a Toddler bed?

OK, I know you are all thinking, why is she taking her newborn out of a crib and into a toddler bed? He should be in a bassinet! Well if you are thinking that, I AGREE! Well, Clint has been telling me it is time to take the side of the crib off and make it a toddler bed. So I guess he won. SO SAD!! But he loved it! He looked so cute!

Our Weekend....

This was a really quiet weekend for us....No wrestling! So It was perfect day to work around the house. We got a new bathroom door the last weekend, so I painted around it where the new trim didn't match up. Then I decided to go around a touch up all the walls. Then I got a little bit crazy and I decided to paint my front door. It is the same color as the dark wall I painted a few months back. I really like it. I think it made the living room really homey. :) So while we were all busy I never laid Lane down for his nap. This is what I found. He cuddled up to big sis Mariah, and went right to sleep. She felt so special.

On Sunday, We had The Diddy's over for dinner. I had to share how cute the kids were. I made pumpkin bars (cake, Yummy! Clint's new favorite!) and I guess since it was cake, Lane and Hailey thought it was a birthday. So, we sang to all the kids. I think we sang and blew all the candles out 10 times. They are such a crack up. Always a fun time.:)

A Day of Remembering.....

Today is the day We remember My Dear Mother, not that we don't think of her everyday. It is just the day 14 years ago, that we lost her in a terrible car accident, and she went to be with Our Heavenly Father. You would think after 14 years this day would get easier, But it really just brings it all back like it was yesterday.
She holds a special place in every ones heart.

I miss her everyday, Everything big and little, I wish I could tell her all about it. I am just so thankful one day we will be together again.
I love you

Happy Birthday to My Sister!

Today is My Sister Alysa's Birthday. I just thought I would share how special she is to me. I am gonna narrow it down to 5 reasons or we would be here all day.:)

1. She can always make me feel better when I am having a bad day!

2. We have been though so much together, Losing both Parents, she understands me, because she feels what I feel.

3. She loves my family unconditionally.

4. She gave me 3 awesome kids to be an Auntie to.

5. She spoils me like a Mom would. She is so giving and caring!!
(This is back in the day when she was bigger than me.:))

Her Beautiful Family!

Her Son Christian celebrated his 7th Birthday on the 9th too. Happy Birthday Christian, We love you!

We hope your day is WONDERFUL! We love you!

Cartwheel Competition

So after The Wrestling match we went to Jared and Lanette's house for dinner. We were just hanging out and We started a game, we went around the room and everyone had to say something weird we could do. Jared told us that he could do a cartwheel, That might not be weird for you, but have you ever seen someone OUR SIZE do a cartwheel. It was so hilarious. So we all had to try.
Lanette did awesome!

And then there was me, I used to be Cartwheel Queen, lol. But at first it was a little scary. I thought I was gonna break something. They made me tuck my shirt in. So I had to do a little dance. Here I am being a dork.

Clint had the camera, this is a picture of beginning of the first one. Lets just say, by the 5Th one I got better.

Here is Jared and Clint, They put on a show for us. I actually got a video of it, but I can't get it to work. So as soon as I figure it out, I will post it. Clint's form was amazing. (not in this picture, he said it was weird when they would do it at the same time, it was scary, lol)

Carter did great making his record 5 and 1!

Carter all in all had a good day at Wrestling yesterday. He had a win by points, a pin and He lost his last one. He took it pretty hard, and was pretty bummed when he lost, But like I say you win some and you lose some. He is still our little champ!
Carter and Proud Dad!

My sleeping NB! He sleep there for about an hour and a half. All the whistles and cheering didn't bother him.
Baby Lily (Jared and Lanette's) Sound asleep too!

Poor little Lane.....

My little guy got his thumb smashed in the door yesterday. We thought it broke his finger too, but We think it is ok. It was so sad! He hasn't cried today unless it gets touched. But, now I have a one handed baby. He won't even use his hand. :(

Our Little Champ!

Carter did awesome, 3 for 3! He had 2 pins and He won the other one by points, 18 to 10!!
(I didn't get any good pictures, I couldn't get close to the mats. So, Next week I promise some good ones.:))

Proud Sisters

Lane was so good, After going to bed late after Trick or Treating, and Being at the meet at 7:30. He got tired and climbed up in my lap and went to sleep. I am so lucky!! ( I told you he is a NB!!)

It was a Happy Halloween!

It was a perfect night, no rain! We went to My cousins house and had dinner and then went around his neighborhood and Trick or Treated. The kids got soooo much candy. I couldn't believe how into it Lane was, the first house we went to the man opened the door with a mask and Lane got so scared. I thought he would be done right then, but instead he walked up to every door chanting NO MASK, NO MASK , NO MASK. It was so funny, he walked and kept up to the big kids the whole time. He is an amazing Newborn!!

I had a Bride, Spiderman, Cat and A Racecar Driver!

Mariah the Cat

Jordan was so cute from the back.

So, What do ya think?

I think Carter has a few more pounds on his cheeks. Lane is my skinniest for sure. Do you think they look alike?
