Spring is here!

Our trip to the dairy farm with friends Kristen and her son Kai
Holden and Kai enjoying the rock piles!
Kai, I think we should start a pig farm.
Our bike ride the next beautiful day down to the Poudre river to have a picnic, collect rocks, look for bugs, and throw things into the water!
Killian: Where did my rock go? Holden: It's right there man!
Healthy Doritos for lunch

Holden is looking right at the goat in this picture, very happy guy!
Chickens, what more can I say?
Checkin out the horsies
New tractor, consignment store, BIG HIT!
Stopping to smell the tulips

Mem and Papa Jim came to visit and we went to the aquarium!
Touching the stingray!
Playing in the sink!
Dinner with our special guests, Emmitt, Kevin and Andrea!!!
We don't mess around with special dinners!!
        The boys are starting to work against us...they are working as a team now and it's scary.
They are changing constantly and new words and phrases come out everyday. They will say anything you do, including things you don't want them to. Holden recently told me to "knock it off" he learned this phrase from us talking to Noku, my dad's dog who visits often and we have to tell him to stop or knock it off. We recently had my sister and Emmitt arrive for a long stay as they are (YAY!!!) relocating to Colorado. The boys have not been that sw

Our Days

Serious obsession with peeling oranges


Happy Boy, spaghetti & salad...he loves to eat!

Notice the choo choo train on his tray

He did the Mohawk himself, pasta sauce instead of hair gel

Nice bite Holden!

Taking care of baby dolls

Loves to sit on the counter!

The boys LOVE the new stool I bought them so they can "wash" their hands and "brush" their teeth. The bathroom is trashed most all of the time but they are happy!The boys are changing so quickly. It amazes me everyday the new words they say and things they understand. They can now talk about their day. Holden is still talking about the day he was "sad" about the "dog" at the "fence" that was "mean". He also is talking about the last bike ride he went on with dada he says "bike", "park", "helmet"," fast" (what daddy?), and "slide" they have a lot of fun with dada. They say dada working, don't want that, big truck, more juice, more etc anything. Holden even says silly goose which cracks me up. I think I said it to him once and bam he uses it about Killian all the time. They both say each others names now too, which is amazing. They love to play outside and to explore anything they don't usually get to like sitting on the counter, running around upstairs, playing in the sink, playing in their downstairs timeout pak n play.
 They love to read and often times are fighting for the spot on my lap. Killian's favorite book at this time would have to be the National Geographic Kids Animal Encyclopedia. Dad gave it to them at Christmas and it is already falling apart. Its amazing the animals they can name. Yak, dinosaur, wildebeest...I mean they just turned 2! Holden switches his books around more often but usually a truck book or animal books wins out. They both love Richard Scarry books. All the little animals and pictures, I guess I loved those books as a child too.
 Hope you enjoy!

Snow Day Jan 2011

Hard to mow the grass with all this snow!

Holden didn't want to sled with his brother!

Killian absolutely loved the snow!

We finally got a beautiful snow in January, the perfect snow to take the boys out and explore! Holden was having a bit of a day so he mostly was pulled around ALONE on the sled while Killian was content to wander through the deep snow on foot.
