boys in blue

My baby is already a month old ...
I feel like if you took all the time i've slept in the last month it would collectively add up to may be 1 week. 
It's a good thing he is a cutie and all i want to do is sit and hold him!

Sleepy peeps

Getting this kid to fall asleep at night is not easy. I have now been blessed with 2 night owls 
Yes this is how she fell asleep!
Do you like Emma's bed??? 
When we moved Meg got put in her bed and i'm not sure if she didn't want to share with Meg or she just wanted to have a slumber party everynight with Rex but she now sleeps on the crib matress on a coffee table we have no place to put!
Rex refuses to sleep on his bed the right way it is either with his head at the wrong end of the bed or sideways.
Thank heavens we got rid of the B. 

And poor Nate the guy just needs a night with eight hours and no kids waking him up. Finals are done today I am so excited no more staying at school till 11:00 at night and leaving in the morning. i get to spend some time with my Hot Man.

I got my Christmas present early and had to do a photo shoot of my boys!
I know it's hard not to eat them they are simply edible...

The Big Sis

It is so nice to have older children to help take care of the baby. Emma is so good with him and is totally into holding him. I wouldn't let the kids walk with him the first week and Emma was so proud when she got to.

Sorry it's sideways

Tom Boy Princess

Yes these look a bit mysterious 
but they are our current collections of mud-balls thanks to Lulu


Yes all she will wear are her summer sun dresses which she calls Princess dresses
Then she goes and does her favorite activity, make mud balls & pic flowers and leafs

On Thanksgiving Day the mud balls even made their way into her play kitchen!

Levi Richard



Well my camera broke a few months ago and i have been dying for the new Canon 50D. It's on my Christmas list! And you better BeLiEVe I am doing everything i can to be on his nIcE LIst! But until i get that i am left to do photo shoots with my point and shoot. Which i am grateful for my little elph, but it just doesn't have the picture quality and sharpness my 20D had, rest his soul! I hope you enjoy some pics of my new little man in the house.


Thanksgiving at the orphanage!

Emma made the bread basket at school
What better way to spend the day than in jammies and a princess costume
Meg had eaten 2 ears of corn before we even got everything on the table and that was all she would eat 
Meg helped set the table


Levi's first Thanksgiving
The girls enjoyed painting their nails

So with the new baby only a week old and Nate starting Finals next week, Traveling to spend this turkey eating holiday with family became impossible. So we got to enjoy a day with just our little family and what can i say the kids look like orphans! We all stayed in our jammies for the big holiday, which was very enjoyable. I've never cooked everything for Thanksgiving but Nate and i pulled off a pretty great meal!
Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving day!
We are thankful for all of you, friends and family!

He's here!


Nate, Kerry, Emma, Rex and Meg welcomed a new bundle of joy into their family today! I (Jamie, Aunt and Sister-in-law), was lucky enough to be there to see him brought into the world and take some pictures! What a miracle! He hasn't been officially named, but he weighed in at 7.3 Lbs, and was 18.75 Inches long. He's adorable and the cutest round face with chubby cheeks, and beautiful skin. Kerry will update you further when she gets home! Congrats guys! We love you!

Chino Hills


Apparently we have rocked this town. Since we have arrived our little town had been in the news for a big earthquake and now the fires are scorching our town. Nate drives about twenty min. to school and Sat. he went to study and on his way home all 3 routes he takes were blocked by fires. It took him hours to get home. A total pain. But the kids and i enjoyed the day at the movie theatre. We finally got to see HSM3 
 
if you look close you can see the supertanker plane that drops slurry. They have been flying over head all day

Baja for the weekend

The kids have two day off this week and i just could not sit still at home so i headed off to Mexico for the weekend. I know a bit crazy being 3 weeks from delivery and all but it was a great getaway. The best part is Jake and Jamie came and we got to see the newest Zobrist edition... BETSY. What can we say we all fell in LOVE. Emma especially keeps talking about her and misses her already.
Betsy gives Rex a karate chop to the nose!

Emma is becoming so responsible and great at taking care of the younger kids

Seriously

So i go in to check on Meg before i head off to dreamland, and i can't find her. After a moment of freaking out, this is where i find her 
Snug as a bug in her doll crib. i think she misses her old crib, she use to go to sleep so good in it now we have to put her back in her bed 10 times a night.

Carving Jack-O-Lanterns


Carving pumpkins
