Being a middle child 2 1/2 years old I knew Kale would have to compete for attention. I didn't know that screaming at everything and everyone, bugging Everett, hitting, and biting was the way to get my attention. Kaleb has been terrible two for 1 year now, Evan and I were getting sad and frustrated that our cute Kale

was getting naughtier and naughtier.

Then something strange started to happen. We went to Albuquerque for a weekmid December and when we got back he started to change. He started sleeping through the night, coming in at 7:30am or later, telling us when he needs a diaper change (that's right I'm a slacker, haven't started potty trainign yet!)! I had to have Connor sit on Kaleb just so I could change his diaper, yeah it was that bad! He hardly screams, says 'please' and almost always 'thank you mom'.

So my little monster is starting to disappear and is becoming the little boy I would dream about when he would wake up four time throughout the night screaming and hitting for no apparent reason.

I have my cutie Kale back!!!

Snow Is Here!!!

The first real snow of the year here in Colorado. The kids acted like they had seen it all before, but loved playing in it nonetheless. Connor did ask me how to make a snowball. I showed him and then I pegged him with it. Never trust dad!!! These pictures were all taken about a week before the sunny day pictures. What a difference a week makes in the great state of Colorado!!
Make sure you get my best side dad!!
Playgrounds are probably more fun covered in snow anyway. The slide sure is!!
I'm being good. I'm being quiet. I'm being-have(as in behave) Cinderella Man quote that doesn't translate well into writing.
Stop following me Dad!!!

More snow pics!!

Kaleb trying to form a ball of the snow to protect his brother from dad. He did not succeed in either mission.
The slide IS more fun in the snow!!
See I told you!!
Part one of the aftermath of snowplay. Kaleb watching "Flushed Away" looking like he doesn't have a care in the world.

...And Connor prefers a little more comfort and needed to lay on our bed while watching another movie. "Um dad could you get my feet please???"

The Boys

Sunny mornings on cold days are the greatest!! I mean how can you beat this?
Kaleb's rare moments of standing still while on the playground so a picture needed to be taken.
Connor is an official member of the "No sissy wheels" club as of age three and one half years.
His Pops couldn't be prouder.

He's kind of out of focus but he's so darn cute I couldn't resist putting this in here.

Mohawk Man

Baby Everett has an awesome natural Mohawk goin' so we thought we would accentuate it and do him up for church. The hair stayed up for about 3 days after this picture. Awesome.

I have never been to the circus in my life and it was coming to town. So I prepped the kids by having them watch Dumbo in advanced as if that would save you from the scary clowns! Overall it was fun. I don't think I would go to the circus again but it's fun saying I've been.
Connor was loving it while wearing his save the earth and animals hat (I had to, it was attached to teeth rotting cotton candy, yum)

The Conman!!

How many birthday cakes does a 4 year old need? Wait for it...

wait for it...
That's right, you have to celebrate so much that he asks you, whose birthday is it mom?

Connor's Great Grandma Farrow gave him a cake.

I made him a cake, turned out a little shiny. I rushed okay!!

Oh and we had to celebrate at Brick Oven!!!

And of course have ice cream and drink out of a mug shaped like a boot, which by the way I was super excited about but the boys didn't really care what they were drinking out of as long as it was soda.And then to celebrate... you have to take them bowling for the first time ever!

They had fun, but along with everything I think sounds like a good idea it only lasted for about 10 minutes!

They then played in the arcade as Evan and I took turns bowling for them! I like bowling.
