We had a birthday party for Koby on the 9th because Kaleb has to work on his birthday. We invited some kids from the ward and his cousin Peyton and it was fun! We had a "Happy Buzz" party because that is what Koby wanted. He was excited when I was making his cake and wanted to help. We had the fishing game and the kids got goodies and then we had cake and opened presents. We gave Koby a big Buzz and he opened it before one of his other presents that we gave him and then he was too excited about the Buzz and didn't want to open the other present. He told Peyton that he could opern it and then he told Brody that he could open it. It was funny. I love our little Koby! He is so adventurous and curious. I love when he gives me kisses and hugs! He has been starting to speak in sentences! Yesterday I was in a class at he hospital and the kids were playing outside and we could see the but they can't see us and the boys were playing with eachother and Brody fell down and I could see Koby help him up and give him a kiss on the cheeck and I know he was saying "brody k?" "brody k?" I was so proud at that moment. He is caring and kind. He loves to know what I'm doing and will come find me and say "what doing mom?" and I love it. He loves action figures. The daycare got him these little super hero figurines and he loves them! He loves Toy Story right now. They both want to watch it over and over again. He loves to get dressed by himself but gets very frustrated when something doesn't go on just right. He always has me fix his socks once I put them on. I love him so much! It is hard to believe that 3 years have passed since he was born!
Koby I hope you can be confident and courageous! That you can choose right from wrong and that you can be an example to others. I hope that you can make friends easily and treat them right. I hope you can be respectful to others and yourself. I think you are like the best person alive and I have all confidence that you will be whatever you set your mind to. I hope that you will listen to us and your family and that you will listen to the holy ghost. I hope that you will serve a mission and have a personal relationship with Heavenly Father. Koby I think that you are awesome! I love you so much and I love hanging out with you! Love you so much! Love mom

Carving pumpkins was fun this year! Koby and Brody wanted to be involved but did not want to remove the seeds. They thought that was "gucky." They were both interesting in the tools to carve the pumpkins. Of course...what did I expect!
Bashas had a cake decorating station on Halloween day so I tool Koby and Erin took Peyton! They loved to decorate! Koby was squeezing the frosting bag and was grunting and grunting! Everyone in the store was laughing at him. He was very proud of his cake!
Koby was ironman this year and loved every minute of it! Brody was an alligator and looked so darn cute! We went to the Bashas parking lot for the little trunk kor treat and hotdogs then we went over to Kalebs parents and kind of hung out and waited for "monsters" to come to the door then Koby would help hand out candy. He loved seeing all the costumes. Then we went around Kalebs parents neighborhood and did some trick or treating. Koby loved all of the porches that were decorated! Brody loved the succors and at one time he had two of them one in each hand and was as happy as could be!

From the mind of a crazy mom

So I was folding whites and THE SOCKS CAME OUT EVEN PEOPLE! I was suprised at myself that I was really excited about this....I tried to convince myself that "its really not that big of a deal ash...get over yourself" but the endorphins were flyin' and I couldn't supress my smile. I still was like well you can be proud Ash but don't tell anyone..just keep it in and flounder in the victory of THE SOCK BATTLE by yourself.. but that isn't nearly as rewarding so sorry if you are still reading this! I hope I'm not the only one!

There is something about it

So the next quite a few blogs will probably be dedicated to makin' up lost time....(a.k.a. posting about the last few months)...
This was a fishing trip that Kaleb took Koby on. The excitment of just the one on one time knowing that you are going to get all the attention for just a few hours. You are special and your dad thinks you are "it." It doesn't matter what you are talking about or what you are doing it is just knowing that you are loved. So thanks Kaleb for taking the time because those times with my dad growing up when I thought I was "it" have left imprints on me and have given me strength when I needed it the most. Gave me confidence and courage to just keep keepin' on. Love you Dad and love you Kaleb!

The other weekend Caskie and Chad had us over to their house to have a little fall get together. We had yummy dinner and then the kids decorated halloween cookies! It was fabulous! The kids played and played in the sand. Koby loved decorating his cookie and I think he did a very good job! He loves Jojo so much! They really are good buds! Love all of you sooo much!

Our little family home evening

We did a little fall craft the other night for FHE. It was so fun to watch the boys "paint" their "stained glass" leaves. At first they were timid and precise, then they became comfortable and they got paint all over themselves. I love seeing how proud they are of what they have done. I hope I can always make them feel like they are so special and that the things they accomplish are amazing! I want them to feel like they can accomplish whatever they want. I want them to know that I believe in them. Love you boys!

A few Easter pictures. Koby had lots of fun finding eggs..him and his cousin would find the real eggs and think they were gross and not put them in their bags. Too smart already.
