Sawyer is 5

Sawyer is 5!
A video is in the works, should be done by tomorrow night! :)

This year brought:

  • Vacations: Lake Powell, Utah (twice? three?) and camping.
  • Skills: Sawyer is now an excellent swimmer, swims the length of the pool multiple times!  Rides his bike without training wheels.  Improved his skills in soccer and basketball :)  And he can actually help me clean!! Hooray!
  • Smarts: He is learning how to read, working on sight words, loves math, taught himself to count to 100 and finished his first year of preschool, dual language kindergarten two months away!
  • Funny: After explaining that hamburgers are made from beef which comes from cow he had a total light bulb moment.  "That's why they call it Old McDonald's!!"
  • Likes: Superheroes, Harry Potter, Avatar, Mario, Sonic, Cake Boss, dogs, swimming, riding his bike, playing PIG (bball), pizza, lemonade and ice cream!
This was a list off the top of my head, things I don't want to forget.  There is so much I could say about this boy and how much I love and adore him.  Putting this video together just reminds me how smitten I am with him...does that ever stop?? 

Happy Birthday Sawyer!!
We love you!

Ollie's 3rd Birthday Video

I am way overdue for an update, and I am so sad and disappointed in myself for not keeping up on my family blog. I guess living closer to family and Quilt Story taking more and more of my time, I left the blog go by the wayside. But I do plan on doing a catch-up by the end of January.  But today is Oliver's 3rd Birthday video.  It takes me a couple hours to do these videos, but I really hope that I do them forever!  We watch them all the time and I think it's just a fun way to document our lives.

My love

Eight years ago today I married my E.
He's the best.
I love him.

This is our first anniversary apart.
In fact it's the longest we've been apart since April of 2002.
It's been too many weeks and I miss E.

Happy Anniversary Love!!

We've been in Utah all of July, spent the 4th at Lake Powell and the rest in Salt Lake...my boys are going to be so bored when we get back home!!  We are seeing friends and family everyday and doing a lot of fun things.  Here are a couple of funny stories I don't want to forget:

Sawyer:  Mom, I want to get 10 dogs.
Mom: Nobody really has 10 dogs, how about we get 1 to start with?
S: How about 4?
M: Let's name the people we know, and how many dogs they have.  How many dogs does FiFi have?
S: 2
M: How many dogs does Peb have?
S: 1...Mom, does Casey Anthony have any dogs?

Me: Ollie, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Ollie: I want me to be big and Sawyer to be little.
