Halloween 2009

We were so glad that Kiel could make it home for Halloween. We went to the pumkin patch and had a great time trick or treating.

Play Catch Up

I know it has been a while since my last post. SORRY! We have ben busy little bees at our house. Kiel has been working in California since the end of April so I have been playing it solo. Drew's grandma is living with us right now and is able to watch him during the day which has been helpful. We have also been working on a lot of different stepping stones that have taken a lot of attention. We have in the past month mastered potty training (Thank you for your patience Grandma), moved Drew into a big boy bed and are doing very well with the alphabet. He is talking so much and so well. I can't believe how easy these transitions have been. I am kind of scared that it is the calm before the storm. So we will see how he is the closer he gets to three. We have also experienced some firsts. Over the Memorial weekend Drew went to the Shark Reef for the first time. He loved it! Anything to do with animals is always the best to him. Just this las t weekend the Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Baily Circus was in town. So we went with my mom, Chad and Garrett. It had been so long since I had been to the circus. He had a lot of fun. He has grown so much in the past couple of months. He is a little boy now, not a baby anymore. I know that everyone is probably wanting new photos. I will get them up soon. I just had a moment at work so I thought that I would at least get you all updated.

Pee Pee in the Potty

Yeah! This is what we have been singing this weekend. Drew finally peed in the potty twice this weekend. We are so excited! He was so proud of himself! Hopefully we can get rid of the diapers soon! He is growing up so fast these days. He is talking so much and understands so much. He has also figured oout how to climb out of his crib, so it looks like we will be transfering him to a toddler bed soon.

This weekend was the first chance I have had to do some baking. It just doesn't feel like Christmas with out having family over and making cookies. I was able to spend some time with my mom and chad on Friday night making Grandma Audrey's farmhouse cookie dough. They have to cool overnight so I didn't get to make them until Saturday, but they sure are yummy. It was fun to have my parents to myself, it doesn't happen very much anymore. It really did make me miss my sister though. On Saturday Kiel's family came over and we made chocolate chip cookies, a gingerbread train, and some chocolate candies. We had a great time. It was nice to be surrounded by family for the weekend, especially coming into the final stretch before Christmas.

Let it snow! Let it snow!

I know you won't believe it that is why I am adding photos, but it snowed in Las Vegas!! We do live close to Mt Charleston and that is why we got so much snow, but it was still pretty cool to have snow. There was between 4 and 6 inches depending on where you were at. All I can say is it has to be freezing to get snow! I don't remember it ever being that cold in Vegas. The temp that my car was reading was 38 degrees!


Last Saturday was Kiel's birthday so played pool with his family and friends. Then we went back to his sisters and had cake (his mom baked it for him). It was nice to go out without Drew. It has been a while!

Boulder City Park

A couple of weekends ago Garrett spent the night with us. So we decided to go to the park out in Boulder City to show Drew the bighorn sheep and have A&W for lunch. We had a great time. Drew loves to play on the swing and slide. Kiel and Garrett had fun throwing the football. We started a game of horse on the basketball court and it was obvious that short people should not play basketball.
