Tatoo artists!

So, the other day Joren decided to color Terek's face (and this is after I washed it off).
Then for some reason a couple of days later, Lucas thought he would teach Joren it was okay to color on people's faces by giving Terek a mustache and earrings.

So this is what Joren did to his own face... mind you, he wasn't even looking in a mirror.

We've got a tattoo artist in the making:)

The Dark Divine

A friend of mine that used to live 2 houses down from me, Bree Despain, wrote a book:) It's called the Dark Divine. It came out in December and I haven't had time to read... because I knew if I started a book I wouln't have time to do anything else. This past week at work I had a couple of slow days and I was able to read it while I was working. I loved the book! It totally kept me going and was a great story. It was very startling to get interrupted by a phone call when I was so engrossed in the book:)

I don't want to compare it to Twilight, but it does have a paranormal character in the book... but I liked it better than the Twilight books.... which sadly is the last book I read. So, check it out. You can buy it online or you can borrow mine. You can check out how website for more info.

Happy Birthday, Anisa!

On your birthday I would like you to know how much I and the boys love you. You are a great mother and a wonderful wife. You are able to accomplish so much each day to make our house a home. You take care of the kids and are still able to do all of your crafting/scrapbook endeavors. I want you to know how much I appreciate you. You are a great support to me and I love you very much. I hope you have a fun birthday. We love you!!
For everyone else, (I hope Anisa doesn’t mind too much) here are some photos of Anisa way back when.

Joren's 4 year pics

Joren is such a silly boy! It was fun to get pictures of him.

He has a cheesy open mouthed smile in all of his pictures!
What a big boy!!!
We thought we'd let him wear his bright red Cars shoes in the pictures because they are his favorite shoes and all he ever wants to wear!!!

Joren turns 4

Four years ago this crazy little boy came into our lives!!! Joren is quite the character. He is my sweet little cuddler, but full of mischief at the same time! My favorite thing about him is his eyes.... they have saved him many times!!! He loves to play with Bakugans, Ben 10 and the Wii. He does not like being outside in the cold. He loves to hit, sword fight and shoot with guns. He loves to play with his big brother, Brenner and he follows him around everywhere. And he loves to carry his baby brother, Terek around and try to boss him around. He is loving preschool right now and is learning so quickly. We love you so much Joren!!!

age 1
age 2
age 3
age 4. He got to have a super cool Bakugan cake made by my friend, Jacinda. (Check out her awesome cakes at
Joren got to go on a date with mommy yesterday to get an early surprise birthday present. He got a blue beta fish that he named "Fishy." He also got Ben 10 stuff and bakugans. The best part was that mommy wrapped some of his presents in random boxes like irons and panini grills and such. You should have seen the look on his face when that's what he thought he was getting. Happy birthday Big J!!!

Today was the perfect day for sledding!

Joren wanted Terek to go sledding with him, but Terek preferred to just walk around in the snow and try to eat it.
Brenner preferred to slide down sans sled.
It was so nice and warm and tons of people were out sledding. Good times!!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

It's crazy how the Holidays have come and gone. We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and we looking to a wonderful 2010!!!

Here's the kids checking out their loot!!!
Santa brought them what they asked for and more:)

Terek stole all of the sucker/toys out of everyone's stockings.
It's always fun to spend the holidays with family. It was fun to have Grandma and Grandpa Blake stay with us... and it's always fun to have Lucas, Shellie and Legacy over. Nothing like a fun shirtless game of keep-away! (the boys get too sweaty and have to take their shirts off... it's kind of funny.)
Legacy got a hair kit for Christmas and the boys had countless hours of fun doing my hair!
We hope everyone has a happy new year! We had a fun-filled evening with Terek almost choking on a carrot (not to mention the fact that Joren had done the same thing on a hard candy only two days before. Shellie and I would like to take a CPR class if anyone knows of a good one.)
We played lots of Wii, ate lots of good appetizers and wore fun party hats!
Lucas had lots of fun lighting off his illegal fireworks!!!
Joren did not enjoy Lucas' fireworks!!!
This weekend we get to try to catch up on a few projects... so it's time to get busy!!!
