On most Thursdays I watch my nephew Ethan so his Mom can go and volunteer in her daughters class at school. The first Thursday back after Christmas vacation Ethan came over and the boys were so cute they ran down stairs both saying they wanted to watch Toy Story 3, ran to the toy box grabbed Woody and Buzz and sat down so excited for me to put on their show. As it started they just lit up it was about the cutest thing EVER so of course I HAD to get some pictures. : )

Garrett's second top tooth finally came out. His tooth had been SO loose for SO long but he is a little bit wimpy about pulling it out himself and there is just no way I could pull it out. I am TOTALLY as WIMPY as they come. Absolutely no stomach for it. There goes my dreams of being a dental hygienist. Anyhow his cousin Bailey had hers loose too while we were in AZ and pulled hers out but Garrett wouldn't have it. Well, it was so ridiculously loose it just looked so funny hanging there and we went out to eat after his cousin Jenna's baptism. Jenna was looking at it and talking about it being loose and I said, "Jenna why don't you pull it out." She's says, so matter of factly, "Okay." She reached right in there and one second later says, "Here you go." and hands Garrett his tooth. It was really very comical but I am guessing you would have had to of been there. Happy Day for Garrett and me. She saved the day. I can't believe how big my boy is getting. He is so handsome. We really tend to butt heads quite a bit, but he is honestly such a sweet little boy and has such a big heart. I love him to death and he is a lot like his Dad in so many ways. He has the hardest time out of the boys dealing with the sadness of his sweet Dad not being around. It is really heartbreaking. I so wish I could bring him back. One day we will be together again. I am so looking forward to that day. WE LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

These two little kiddo's were playing so good one day while the bigs were at school and I thought Brody just looked so darn cute in my Dad's old Army hat so I pulled out my camera hoping to get some cute pictures of him and he liked it for one second and then just lost it. He is such a crazy emotional basket case. Even with a rotten face on he is still so darn cute. GOOD THING! : )What a handsome little man this guy is.... my Mom thinks he could be a child model with that cute face and red hair.He had had enough....He means it....HOW DARE I...

It was sad to see Bob, Amanda and their cute mob of boys go before us. We played just a couple days longer after they left. Garrett and Porter were so excited to be able to go to school with Garrett's teacher that he had the last couple of months of last school year and then the first couple of days of the start of this school year. His teacher Mrs. Connelly really should get teacher of the year. She is so amazing and so sweet to all the kids but I couldn't believe how sweet she was to my kiddos and I for only having known us for such a short time. She wrote Garrett and had the class write Garrett a couple of notes that he just loved getting and reading. She really is a wonderful teacher. And little Mase-O got to go to preschool with Teacher Lou. He loved it and thought it was so much fun. The last night we were there we had a winnie roast for dinner and made smore's for dessert. Thank you Aunt Emily and Uncle Matt and all you cute kids for letting us come and invade for almost 2 WHOLE WEEKS. You guys are so amazing to let us come and stir up your routine for so long and chauffeur us around and entertain us. We loved being able to go and be with so much family. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I know Trev was just looking down on us with a big smile from above. Nothing meant more to him then to see his family together and to be with his friends which was really family to him. I remember when ever I did something with one of his best buddies wives without him it made his day. He was always so cute about it. He loved for me to become friends with his friends wives. Good thing his friends married such great girls. We love them. : )
After the winnie roast I dumped the boys in some soapy water and put their matching pj's on for the final pictures of our wonderfully fun trip...
I couldn't get Brode to look away from the TV...They had had enough pictures by this point in time...THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR SUCH A GREAT TRIP!!

Brody just adores his little cousin Ry. She is so much fun and such a sweet little cousin to Brody. They were outside riding bikes with these cowboy hats on and I just couldn't resist getting a picture. I was so glad that Brody remembered his little buddy from when we had lived there, I know we hadn't been gone too long but sometimes kids can be so funny but he had no problems. They just jumped right back into to their little buddy roles. LOVE THEM. : )

I just have to say.....These boys have the BEST Uncles in the WORLD. My boys just could not get enough of their uncles and their uncles were such good sports and so loving towards them. It makes me so happy and I know Trev so happy to know that these boys will always have such wonderful men in their lives and I cannot even begin to express how much that means to me and I know Trevor, too. Thank you guys for being so wonderful to these little boys it means more then you will ever know. Brody fell asleep on Matt when I was out running errands with Amanda and when I got home I just had to get a picture. Matt was such a good sport, big drool puddle and all. Brody really loves his Uncle Matt. He loves to point him out in pictures and this wonderful video that Uncle Bob put together for the boys and I of any little snippet that Trev is in. Like I said The Absolute Best Uncles EVER!!! I truly mean that.Uncle Bob and The Wonderfully Cheerful Aunt Amanda... It was so cute the other day I overheard the boys playing some sort of wrestling game and I hear, "This is how Uncle Bob does it." Uncle Bob is so good at getting down on the ground and wrestling around with these wild monkeys and they couldn't eat it up anymore. They LoVe IT!

While we were in AZ I was able to run my first official race, the 21ST Annual Midnight Madness on New Years Eve. It was only 3 miles so not really a big deal, but it was a lot of fun. We were a little nervous when all of us were past out with our mouths wide open on the car ride over to the race from pure exhaustion but once we were there and freezing our buns off we were ready to run. Emily and I had plans to run the Surprise 1/2 marathon this month when we were living there but unfortunately those plans fell through and she is running without me. :( I hope to run my first 1/2 this spring here in Spokane. Wish I were running it with Em. Thanks girlies, I had a lot of fun. So glad you decided to join us Amanda, you did awesome. Love you guys!!
Just after signing in... During the race...Just finishing...After we got all our goodies...
