Playing catch up

I am playing catch up because I have just been totally slacking lately. I don't know what it is but I can not get myself to do a post. We haven't really had anything exciting happen but I do have lots of pictures.
For New Years we all decided to take the kids sledding. It ended up being quiet memorable. We took my Dad's Artic Cat out with us to pull the kids in sleds behind it. The kids were loving it until the Artic Cat got stuck. Then to top it off, Luke's Dad, Roger got his car Montero stuck trying to pull the Artci Cat out. It was really funny and we had a good laugh. Kooper was the most excited about it. He didn't even know what sledding was. He just knew that he got to wear his winter clothes, boots, hat and gloves. He was ready to go. He was just happy! He was standing in the backseat of the truck looking out the window just waiting to get there. I turned around to check on him and he was asleep standing up! I couldn't wake him up for anything. I took him out of the truck and walked him around and everything. He was out cold! When he did wake up he was on the couch and he never even knew he had missed a thing.
This picture is of Kooper sleeping, standing up in the backseat with his head against the door.

We moved him next to Kyron and he just snuggled right up.

I think this is my favorite picture of the day!
I love Kason's smile.
It is so real!
He was so happy to be sledding.
Kooper likes to lay on my parents bed and watch t.v.
He really wanted Kali to join him.
So here is the 2 of them hanging out in their pj's.

Another one of Kooper sleeping.

It is funny how I find him in such random sleeping positions.

Amanda and Kevin (and Kevin's Dad, Dennis) came to visit last weekend. Kevin is such a good sport. Kenzi bugs him to death. She loves to play with him.

Kali is growing so fast.

She is still so tiny!

Here she is eating carrots.

She didn't really know what to think.My boys in their Sunday best.

I love to see little boys in white shirts and ties.

I think they look so handsome.

Kooper loves to wear a tie like the boys too!

I can't believe how grown up all the kids look. Kooper is a crack up, like always.

I understand the blogging slump. I had to FORCE myself to post Christmas! Why? I have no clue. I still love to read others.

I love all the pictures. Snow pics are the best!

Cami said...

Yay! Your back! What cute kiddos!

Kirsten said...

How do you fall asleep standing up??!! Kooper is hilarious! I love that picture of you and Luke. And Kali is soooo cute! I can't believe you moved again! How do you do it all? And did you make Kali's hat, cause it is so adoreable. I need to learn how to do that. I want all my girls to have one.

Amanda said...

Glad your back! Cute pictures. I love your jacket :) You look SO good. Kevin loves being around the kids. He thinks the girls are just to cute!

Love all the pics. Boys in white shirts and ties is the best ever. And, memories are made of sledding and getting stuck in the snow...twice! Glad you've been having such a good time this year.

Dawn said...

THERE you are! I knew you must've been busy getting settled and having fun. The snow looks like a ton of fun. We just don't get much over here. Your dad's hat is so Uncle Buck. I laughed out loud! Kali is getting so big! It really flies when they start on the solids!

Nicki said...
