Sleep Eating

This is one of my favorite videos ever! We had spent the day at Snowbird and the kids had done everything from mechanical bull riding, to alpine sliding, and rock climbing. It was obviously enough to completely wear Baylee out. She wanted a snack as we were leaving so I gave her a string cheese. I shot this video shortly after we left. As tired as she was she was determined to eat that string cheese. I can't tell you how many times I have watched this video. I laugh my butt off everytime I watch it. Enjoy!

Major Catch Up!

OKAY......Seriously???? Has it really been 6 months since I posted? Obviously life with three kids has kept me a little busier than I thought it would. Truth be told, my lack of blogging is probably just a result of lack of desire. I planned on getting caught up one post at a time. That got overwhelming and is the main reason I haven't done anything SOOO...I decided to bite the bullet and just do one incredibly long catch up post and call it good. Hopefully I will be able to keep current from here on out. (Fingers crossed!) So grab a snack and get comfortable. Here it goes. Starting with the current and moving backwards here is what is going my little fam.

Barry, is BUSY! Working a ton. In fact he is out of town right now and has been for most of the last two weeks. Boo! He works so hard to provide for our family and we appreciate it so much, but it really kinda sucks.
As for me, I am just trying to keep up with the kids and all the activities. Between karate, little gym, dance, tumbling, school, and preschool, I spend A LOT of time running kids around. I have also been working hard at losing weight and getting healthy. SO far I have lost almost 60 lbs. YAY!
As for the stars of the show, Aidan is the smartest little 1st grader ever. He is reading at a 3rd grade level and can't get enough of it. I just went to parent teacher conferences and was so proud of him. He is such a sweet boy.
Baylee is in preschool and LOVES it! She would love to go every day if she could. She is a spunky little girl and keeps me on my toes. She thinks Mason is her own doll and can't be left alone with him, lol.
Mason is the cutest, happiest, best baby in the world. He is crawling everywhere. LOVES to go up stairs and sneak off, and stands up and walks along anything he can. He is my first mamma's boy and I have to admit I love it.
My pictures are all taken on my i-phone and aren't the best quality but they'll do the job. Enjoy.
Mason and I at a wedding last weekend. Sure do love this boy!
The shirt says it all! Mason is 10 months and I plan on nursing him until he is one. I'm just not sure how I am going to wean him at that point. The kid LOVES to nurse.

Aidan (swamp monster) and Baylee (minnie mouse) for HAlloween. Unfortunately Mason hated being a dragon and I don't have any decent pictures of him :(
I mean seriously, could you not just eat him? Too cute!
Aidan gave himself his first haircut a couple weeks ago and wasn't very impressed with his skills. I think it's safe to say he won't try that again.

Sleeping beauty crashes hard. I love the cheetos scattered on the floor and the orange on her fingers and mouth. True Baylee style!

Aidan got his first set of golf clubs and was able to go with Barry a couple time this summer. He loves it!

My mom and Kelly got married! I will have to do a post on that later with some more pics. It was a great weekend and we are so happy with our expanded family!

Baylee started dance and tumbling and loves it. She is so cute to watch.


Baylee on her first day of preschool.
Baylee got her ears peirced when she was about 5 months old. She did great with them until a year or so ago and one of them closed up so we got it re-peirced. She didn't love that experience but a sucker fixes everything right?

My little stud on his first day of school. How did this happen? I can't possibly have a 1st grader!

I'm telling you.....I am in trouble with this girl. Too cute for her own good :)

Aidan got his purple belt in karate! He is doing soooo good. We are so proud of him and the progress he is making in karate.

This is Aidan and Tony Martinez. For any of you that know anything about karate, he is an impressive man. He is the owner of the studio and is a well known name in the karate world. He is also a seventh degree black belt!

He looks so little in all his sparring gear :)

I turned 30!! gasp! My family threw me an 80's themed surprise party and it was a blast. In case you were wondering I didn't show up to the party in this attire. This was the outfit that was waiting for me when I got there.


We spent A LOT of time at the pool this summer. Aidan and Baylee both did swimming lessons again and Aidan is an amazing swimmer. It was Baylee's first time but she did great.

Aidan has lost his four front teeth now. Don't worry his two front teeth are already at the top of his Christmas list this year.

You could find Baylee doing this on a daily basis with her otter pops this summer. I have a freezer out in the garage and it didn't take the neighbor kids long to figure that out. I went through an insane amount of otter pops this summer.

Baylee turned three and took a couple of her friends with her to get pedicures and manicures. They thought it was the best thing ever! Barry is a little worried that I started her out so early.


Mason's first time eating rice cereal. Always a fun experience!

Awww.......I already miss him being so little. I wish they didn't grow up so fast :(

This picture just makes me smile.

Well.....if you made it this far, I am proud. I promise I am going to be a better blogger. Promise!
