Step #1: the kids find the right color and hand the pieces to their dad. Step #2 The kids pose for a picture! This is a must do!
Step #3 Take a picture of the Tree putter upper! And so you can see the progress.

step #4 Take a picture of the cute baby playing in the lights as her daddy is trying to put them on the tree!

Step # 5 : show the tree with all the lights on it. And show how good I did at "fluffing the tree".

Today I let Bryan dress himself. This is a very normal thing to do at our house. So I ask........ REALLY????????????? How in the world do you (Bryan) totally wreck your room in the 5 minutes that you were in there? Maybe you were on a treasure hunt and came up empty handed... Maybe you wanted to find your very favorite of all favorite shirts..... Maybe, I don't know, I should just ask REALLY???!! When I finally had 5 minutes to myself I walked down the hallway something caught my eye... could it be the thing hanging in Bryan's room! Yes that's what did it! And then I saw the ENTIRE ROOM!! I just laughed. I mean really what else could I do. It took me soooooo off guard. So i decided to take pictures and blog about it!
this is his dresser when he was finished. Like I said, maybe a lost treasure was in there. Who knows!

This is the thing that caught my eye! Yes you see that right. Those are Pajama pants hanging from the fan! And again all I have to say is................. REALLY!!!!!

This picture of Tayela has nothing to do with this post. But it was to cute not to put on the blog. Oh and coming soon!!!!! THE POLAR EXRESS PICTURES!

Goblin Bryan

This last weekend Grandpa and Grandma Larsen surprised us with a visit! We were all very excited to see them again! We love the visits we have with them. We also love that they both still love to play games. We played Rummikub... and Grandma Larsen is Good at it and is very competitive! It's Great!

Monday night...We went to my parents house and we had my early birthday dinner and a pumpkin carving party. Well The guys watched football.....
Here is My Scottie watching the game.... I think he smiled so I would hurry up and get out of the way! :)
Here is my dad Chillaxin!!! He is a great guy! And I love him!

Kambria and me! I took the picture so its kind of goofy

Here is proof that this girl eats!!! She spent half here time in here... and the other half

Doing this.... She helped me carve the "cat" pumpkin.

Bryan Helpedmy mom carve his pumpkin.... The Skull and cross bones. He calls it the Pirate pumpkin.

Okay!!!! Today we are going to talk about Bryan!!! Bryan is going to turn 5 in December!! Honestly I can't believe it! any ways in the last few months Bryan has accomplished alot! So I just wanted to mention a few more so for myself than anything else. So Bryan, you have been able to write your own name now for about a year! And now you are so very determined to start writing that you have given yourself homework! Yes I did say YOU gave yourself homework! you sit down and practice writing your ABC's and your numbers. And you are doing a fantastic job! Bryan is getting very good at identifying letters and numbers and I know will do excellent in school next year!
Bryan you are a very determined kid!!!!! The other day you asked me to teach you how to tie you shoe. So I showed you and helped you a few times. And for the rest of the day INSTEAD of playing you sat the all day and "tied" your shoe. At the end of that day you DID IT! All by your self. You showed your dad when he got home and from then on we can no longer help you! Good job! Let's see....... Oh another big one That MOM was super excited about! You finally gave in to wiping your own bum! I know its kind of gross but I did the Happy Dance that day! Thank you for accomplishing that one!
So onto other things.......
Bryan has been plaing soccer and LOVES it. His team name is the Red Hots. And he was SOOO excited because his team color is red. That is his favorite color. He is doing really good. He has scored a couple of goals.... but mostly it's run up and down the field and try not to run over the whole herd of kids running to kick this little soccer ball. It is alot of fun to watch. We love you Bryan, and I Hope you stay like you are and always be determined to accomplish everthing in life! Soccer Boy he is # 2
Warming up before the game.

One of his cutest fans!!

And this is you and the other cute fan!
