Daddy and his boys at the falls in Spokane.
Mommy with her sweet girl!

Kali loves to play outside! We've had a few days nice enough for her to learn that she wants to be outside. She will just stand at the door and bang on it and scream. She loves her swing and the trampoline. We get a kick out of it too, because her fine hair looks so silly with the static electricity.

Kali is already 1 year old. This last year has gone way too fast. Kali isn't walking on her own yet, but she thinks she is pretty cool when she can stand up on her own and balance.

A very exciting trip to the fire station for Tyler. He loves fire trucks!

Tyler is our little chipmunk. He is famous for storing food in his cheeks. This picture happens to be robin eggs from Easter that he was trying to sneak, so he popped them in his mouth thinking he could hide them from me.

We went to Spokane this weekend to see Justin and his family, and Nathan definitely had fun with their oldest daughter, Brooklyn. He was very sad to say good-bye. We all had a great time. We're so glad we got to go!
Nathan has always been a "fish", but he's been taking swim lessons recently and turned into quite the little swimmer. He has no fear!

Bath time, sitting up, and crawling!

I can't believe she's getting so big. Her new favorite place is the bathtub, but a close second is the boys' play room, where she can now get anything she wants. The boys are going to have to get really good at keeping it clean, especially those lego pieces!

Naked boy

Tyler has been in a 'naked' stage lately. I think it's cute and don't have a problem with, unless he's trying to go outside and ride his bike or scooter. Then clothing is mandatory!


Christmas is much fun with kids. The excitement is just too hard to contain! Nathan had a good time building legos with Dad, Tyler kept giving us 'tickets' (he was a motorcycle cop), and Kali really enjoyed the wrapping paper and bows.


The snow was great and very unexpected. Snow angels were a favorite, and Kali really liked it when her brothers pulled her around the driveway on the sled. Jumping on the trampoline in the snow is also very entertaining!

Off to Grandma's house (and Disneyland)

Disneyland was so much fun! Kali was a little small to enjoy the rides, but the boys had a blast!

We went to the LA Zoo and saw so many cool animals. The favorite of the day was the Komodo Dragons.

The kids were all really good on the flight, and as we were getting off the plane, the flight attendant told the boys they could go in and look at the cockpit. The pilot even got out of his seat and let the boys sit there. So exciting!

October sure was fun for us. The pumpkin patch is always a favorite, carving pumpkins wasn't too messy, and the costumes were so cute. Nathan was Jack Skellington from Nightmare Before Christmas, Tyler was a pirate, and Kali was a cute little mermaid. It didn't even rain for trick-or-treating. On the drive home, Tyler told us that he wanted to "eat all the chocolate in all the world". That boy loves sugar! Nathan really liked his costume, but was kind-of shy with all the attention he got. It seemed like everyone we saw stopped to comment on his cool costume. Kali didn't really know what was happening, but she liked to play with the tail on her costume. I can't believe October is over and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Time flies!
