We have a six year old again!

Brendan is 6?? Where does the time go? Seriously. I know people say it all the time, but it's TRUE! My baby boy is 6! His party was a lot of fun. He invited a few friends from his Kindergarten class. I made my first birthday cake. It turned out really cute (and yummy!). He got a lot of really cool presents. He even wrote out his own Thank You notes (with A LOT of help from Mommy). He is getting so big.

Oh- he thinks that since he is 6- he should be in first grade automatically AND he should be able to ride the bus like Peyton did when he was 6. I have to explain how things work EVERY morning on the way to the sitter...FUN! ;)

Thanksgiving 2008

Happy Thanksgiving!
The boys and I have been busy today. We started the turkey at 8am then watched the Macy's parade. Then we went on a walk to find some pinecones for our craft- pinecone turkeys (I found the idea online). We came back home and made the turkeys. They turned out so cute! We are now going to put icing on our cookies that we made last night. That should be messy fun! Can't wait.

I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving!

Superstar Brendan

Brendan's kinder class does a Superstar each week and it is his turn this week. We made a poster yesterday with pictures and some of his favorite things written on it to share with the class. So- I went to his school this afternoon (after I was informed that "ALL the other mommies come to watch their kids talk") to watch Brendan present his poster. He was so cute standing up at the front of the class with 20 kids crowding his space. I swear these kids were sitting on Bren's feet, they were that close. ;) Anyway- he talked about each picture. We put a soccer pic on it, one of our dog- katie, one of the fam, one of Brendan & Peyton and one of daddy in his uniform. Brendan also talked about his favorite things:
Color: red
Food: hot dog
Sport: soccer
Movie: Star Wars Clone Wars
Book: Power Rangers Ninja Storm
After he talked about his poster, he picked 5 friends to tell him what their favorite thing was about his poster. One little boy said "I played Soccer, too, but inside". Brendan's response...."Ooooookay". It was pretty funny. Another little boy said "I like your dog". Brendan said "thank you".

He was so cute! He wasn't shy at all. It's like he couldn't wait to tell all his friends about himself. He was super excited that I was there, too, which made me really happy! A lunch break well used!

Fall in Colorado

Fall is my favorite season. I have learned that living in CO. I love the leaves changing and all of the different colors on the trees; the weather. It is an amazing time of year.
This day, we had gone to the park. The boys were having such a fun time playing in the leaves- I had to take a few pics. We tried to get a big pile of leaves together, but the wind had other plans. It was fun trying, though.

Halloween 2008

Peyton and Brendan after trick-or-treating. they had a blast. Peyton wanted to keep going, but Bren was ready to go home. they couldn't wait to survey the loot. i don't know how many times i heard the song, "trick or treat, smell my feet.....". enough until next year, i guess. ;) the boys crack up after they sing "i'll pull down your underwear". gotta love it.

congrats, kyle!

kyle made a career change- from retail to law enforcement. we have been back for over a year now- we are going to look for a house soon and settle down permanently. things are falling into place- Finally!
