Christmas Pictures

Christmas was so fun this year! We got to spend it at our house with our little family! Koby loved opening his presents! He would tear them open pretty quick! He loves his chainsaw and a bunch of tools. He has been trying to fix things all over the house. He also like the potato head stethlescope...He is listening to Mr. Potato Head in the picture. We had a white christmas and that was really fun! We spent lots of time with Kalebs family and had lots of really yummy food and fun times! I loved it! Enjoy the pictures!

Pictures of The Boys

These pictures are just some that I took before church! Don't they look so cute! I love these boys!

Koby will ride around the house with Brody on the back. When Brody gets tired and we help him off Koby gets frsutrated and wants him to ride still!

Merry Christmas!

Christmas...I love this time of year...the smells, the excitement in the air. I think that Christmas is all about LOVE. Loving more, loving deeper, loving unconditionally. I think about Mary and Joseph and the love that they had for each other and for the babe in swaddling clothes. I think about the circumstances and how tired and grumpy I would be. I'm sure I would be snapping at Kaleb and cursing the situation of being big and pregnant and riding on a donkey for who knows how long and then to lodge in the humblest of circumstances and give birth to the Saviour of the world in a stable with no mother to help or midwives to care for me and the baby. I think about Christ and his unfailing love for me. I think about love that I have for my boys and Kaleb. I LOVE them so much! I love our families! I love the gospel. I love my young women. I love that I have a home to live in. I love that Kaleb and I have great jobs. I love the temple and that we are sealed for eternity! I am so grateful for everything that I have! I am so blessed! Merry Christmas to everybody!

Here are some Halloween pictures of the boys. I had to work so I didn't have time to paint their faces. Bummer! They were still cute anyways. We went to an older couples house in our ward...(they always say hi to the boys and just treat them so sweet!) and Koby kept seeing candy in little jars or bowls in their house. Let's just say he figured out the candy thing! We had a fun evening and just enjoyed seeing the boys in their cute costumes! I forgot to rotate these so you are just going to have to turn your head to look at them! Oh I forgot to mention that my Grandma dropped some popcorn balls off at our house and Koby loved them as you can tell! Thanks Grandma!

Best Buds!

So on Sunday Kaleb and I were in the living room and Brody was in his crib. Koby was wondering around the house. We hear Brody laughing alot and we sneak back to their room and find Koby in Brody's crib. He was giving him zuberts (you know when you blow on someones belly) and jumping up and landing on his bum which made Brody come off the bed a little. It was so adorable. Brody gets excited when Koby comes by him..he starts kicking his little legs and flailing his little hands as fast as they will go. I hope they grow up to be best buds! Oh I know they will fight but I just hope I can teach them to love one another and to play together.

I took this on my phone so the quality isn't the best. I was undressing Brody and had left his onsie on his head and Koby wanted to be like Brody and have a shirt on his head too! So cute!

Ok well ALOT has happened since I last posted! I have been terrible this summer at posting and taking pictures! My boys are growing like crazy! Brody is 4 months old now and just the cutest thing ever! He will smile at anything! He is so chubby and has alot of rolls. I just took him to the doctor and he is 90% for height and 97% for weight! Chunker! He is reaching for things and is drooling alot (no teeth yet please)!!! Koby is just a little firecracker! He has found out how to use his toys to climb up onto the bathroom counter and get into EVERYTHING and to scoot a chair up to the kitchen counter and get into EVERYTHING! I love him even though he gets into things! We have Kalebs Aunts dog Coco with us right now and Koby LOVES that dog so much! He is such a fun playmate for Koby! We have been busy canning all kinds of things lately. We've done beef, peaches, peach pie filling, green beans and pears! They all turned out really well! I love canning and would say that it is definitely a hobby! What else? I don't know just life I guess! I will do better at keeping an update!

Koby and Coco!

We went out to the ranch for the Brimhall reunion and Ryker and Koby found these hard hats and they would not take them off for nothing! Koby even fell and scraped up his elbow but he was still holding onto his hard hat!

Koby loving on his brother!

We have caught Koby holding Brody's hand and also holding his bottle in the car. He also steals his blanket and pacifier but I think he really does love his baby brother and I'm so excited for them to play when Brody gets older. I have some great memories of playing with my brothers and know I always had a friend. I love them all so much!

Brody Kekoa Kelepolo

Well this past Sunday we blessed Brody in our ward. It was so fun to have our families come and support us. Brody is so special to me. He is really sweet and I know that he came straight from the pre-existence where he lived with our Heavenly Father. Awhile back we were at my parents house and they have a picture of Jesus hanging on their wall and my dad was holding him and he was just staring at the picture of Christ. I know that he knew him and talked with him. I'm so blessed to have the experience of nurturing one of these blessed spirits. I love him so much! I love watching Koby and him and how they interact. Well its not so much Brody interacting but more Koby I guess. He loves his little brother and never misses an opportunity to kiss on him. We love them both! Oh, how they have blessed our lives and especially mine!

Thanks Val and Aunt Kristi

Well I have a little bit of time so I will catch up on a few things. This last weekend I got to spend some time with my Aunt Kristi and my closest pal and cousin Val. We had a great time. I can't really explain this weekend. I haven't had such a learning moment since I was in college. You know those times when it is like..oh this is what I'm supposed to do. Well lets just say I had one. Koby had a really hard time this weekend and I was absolutely amazed he could act so bad. He's never really acted that bad before. Val and Aunt Kristi were so patient with Koby and I. We learned so much about discipline and being consistent. It feels so good to be able to get away for a little bit, to clear your mind and to be able to recommit myself to being a better wife and mother. Val is such a good little mom and it helps to learn from good examples. Anyway, I love you Val. Thanks so much for teaching me ALL the time!

Alright I did it

Ok well I finally got a night light and last night was the first adventure. He actually fell asleep pretty quick and he was on the bed! But....he woke up in the night and was crying and crying for like at least 45 min and I went in there and layed on the bed with him and he settled down. Then when I would try to get up he would start to cry again so I just sat on the floor by his bed and told him to lie down and he did. He would sit up a few times to see if I was still there. Finally he was I guess comfortable enough and I slipped out of his room and he slept the rest of the night. He was awake when I left the room and he looked at me but stayed laying down. I was happy with that. Hopefully it will be better tonight but not too bad for the first night. He took him naps today on the bed too!

I just went over to the neighbors house to introduce myself and Koby and give them a loaf of bread. People are nasty! I can't believe how some people live. The smell of smoke and dirty houses that stink! I'm so grateful I know better! By the way the people were really nice but still...take care of your house!

I just want to type a little post just saying how cute my little Koby is. I don't know what I would do without him. I mean it is alot of work to teach him everything and it is hard to change a million diarrhea diapers but...nothing is better when he looks at me with that cheesy grin that he has. Nothing. Lately he has been learning so much...when I ask him where the baby is he'll lift up my shirt and point to my huge growing belly and he'll even give it kisses. The other day he was sitting on my lap and just put his head down on my belly and just sat like that for awhile. Koby doesn't hold still and he doesn't really just let you hold him so times like this are so precious to me. I know that I won't be the best mom in the world. I'm learning that there is no way that I'm going to be the best at anything but I can show him that I love him more than anything.
Last night I wanted to try the toddler bed so I put all of his stuffed animals on the bed and went out of the room to get some outlet covers when he started screaming. Well he had gotten on the toddler bed and fallen and hit his lip. He had a fat lip...well I still was determined to try it. So I layed him down and we started to read some books. It lasted for a few minutes and then I tried to turn the light out and shut the door. He screamed loud and I realized that we were going to have some serious injuries so I will get a night light so he won't do too much damage to himself and then we'll try again. When I opened the door he was already practically to the door and I only left for a second. I love my little guy so much!

Here are some pictures of cute Koby...He was posing for the camera the other day and I thought it was just too cute! He had oreos the other day and just loved them. He sat on my lap for along time just eating them, watching TV with me. He has been so fun lately. He is starting to copy things that we do and to even sometimes do what we ask him to do. Trust me it isn't very often but it is so fun to realize that he is understanding what we are saying. He has this smile that is just too cute! It is so crazy to think how much I want him to be happy. I want him to be a good boy and I want him to learn all that he can. I am so exited for this newe year and how much he will change. It is so fun to watch him grow. (note: I think that the Biggest Loser is on in the background. I love this show and am so sad that Jerry got sent home...but hopefully next week whats her name will get voted off...the black chick)
