My three around the same age

I thought I would post a picture of each of my kids around the same age. It is interesting to see them side by side and see their differences and similarities. Where does the time go? The middle picture is of my oldest son who is 5 and will start kindergarten in the fall. The top picture is of Nathan and the last picture is of Sarah. Same order for the next set of pictures.

Rock Band!

Our "dealer" Danny managed to get us Rock Band. We finally tested it out tonight. I have to admit it was fun! It is a little hard for Nathan but he managed to do some of the drum stuff. Jacob liked playing the guitar. It really is amazing how kids are so good at computer stuff so early. Way better than Mommy!

I like to post pictures and these one makes me laugh! I love Aidan's hair!

Since we are moving, I have started thinking that may be I should back up all our pictures and videos. You never know what could happen on the long trip out to Ontario. So here's the question, how do you back up your photos or videos? Having never done this before, if you have any suggestions or words of advice, I would appreciate them.

Sarah Lynn 2 Months Old!

We went went to the clinic yesterday. She was the lucky baby who received three immunization shots in the legs. Overall, she did pretty good. She cried for the one that the nurse told me would still. Almost 9 weeks old she weighs 10lbs 2oz, and is 21 3/4 inches long. Not a big baby but a healthy baby. I can't believe two months has already gone by. She 's at that wonderful stage of smiles and talking to you. The boys are great with her, very gentle and always checking on her. They love her very much!

Daddy sang a special Song for Sarah!

Chris sang a beautiful song on Sunday with his group. They all did a great job. Some of the words were rewritten for Sarah's dedication. Sorry about the quality of the video, may be it is time to buy a new camera??? Anyway, it took me a day to get this together, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks Chris for making it a very special day!

Happy Father's Day!

Today was also Sarah's dedication. We are so blessed to have these three wonderful kids. And what better day to dedicate our daughter than on Father's Day! I am very thankful for them, who they are as people and their health!! Chris was on for Praise and Worship today, so he planned a very special song for Sarah. It was beautiful! Maybe I will try to post the video later....when I figure out just how to do that.

I almost didn't get Jacob down to the front of the church to join us. We explained to the boys that we would be going down front and praying for baby Sarah. Well that was fine until all the other kids left for Sunday School. Jacob was quite concerned he was missing out. However, I managed to convince him it would be OK! But it took some "convincing!"

Sarah did great! She was totally awake and I thought she was going to cry through the whole thing, but she was content until near the end. We had some of our close friends over for lunch today. It was great to have them all over and fun to watch all the kids playing together. They were all over the backyard today, jumping on the trampoline, on the swing set, and fighting bad guys. All in all a great Day!!

Birthday Party Fun!

Today the kids went to a birthday party for Noah and Isabella. They had a clown come and paint faces and do some magic tricks. As you can tell from the pictures the face painting turned out great! It was a very fun birthday party! The kids had a great time!

Finally some Sun!

We finally got to enjoy some of the outdoors. It stopped raining for a short time this evening. It gave Chris and the boys a chance to go for a bike ride down to fish creek. They love to throw rocks into the river. This picture is from last fall. The water now covers up the rocky area where they are standing.

Smiley Sarah!


We have entered that very fun stage of smiles! I have been trying for the last two weeks to capture her smile with the camera. I finally got one! She gets a little distracted by me holding this giant camera in her face. Can't say that I blame her.

I love seeing her smile!

Should be sleeping!

Little Sarah has decided to have some awake time. It is 11:45 pm and she is all smiles! I will post some smile pictures may be tomorrow.

Big Truck!

We had fun checking out this very large truck in Sparwood. Nathan couldn't believe just how big it was! Spending time with family is so much fun!

Jacob finished school at the end of May. He had a wonderful teacher, Mrs. B! She took all the kids on some wonderful learning adventures. On the last day of school, she invited the class to her backyard. They released 250 ladybugs. Mrs. B told the kids that just like the lady bugs were ready to be released, they too were now ready for Big Kid School!
The kids were very excited and they really enjoyed seeing all the ladybugs. It seems like yesterday Jacob was a little baby, and now he's ready for kindergarten!
We will miss you Mrs. B!

Funny Pictures

I love how determined he was to make those dandelions seeds blow off! The last picture has the best expression. I guess those seeds weren't ready.

Scapbooking too!

I haven't posted anything related to scrapbooking yet. So today is the day! Thanks to some really great friends who were able to babysit for me I attended a digital scrapbooking class and learned a few new tricks. I love the pictures I used on this page. We used Elements 6 to create the page.
Isn't she a cutie! We are so blessed!
Thanks lobbsters for taking the kids, all three! Auntie and Uncle have the magic touch because they managed to convince Sarah to take a bottle. Yeay!

Backyard Fun!

Jacob wanted to show me some moves. Some Indiana Jones moves as he called them.

Nathan posed for me on the slide.

Taming the Jungle!

With all the rain, camping and Chris being away there has not been much time to mow the lawn. Finally the rain stopped and the boys were able to cut the grass. Jacob and Nathan both have their own lawn mowers, and the really like to "help" out! It is fun to watch them copy Chris's every move. Needless to say, the yard looks so much better and the tall jungle like grass is gone.

I forgot about....

While we were in Montana, we also visited the MAZE. The kids like trying to find their way to all the letters and spelling out MAZE. This place also has bumper boats which were very fun. We had great weather that day so getting wet was not a problem. The kids also drove in the cars. Nathan was very excited, he was too small last year to do this. We ended this day by mini golfing. However, when you are golfing with Nathan it becomes speed golfing. He also liked setting up his ball as close to the hole as he thought was necessary. Jacob and I tried to keep up with our speed golfer. Thankfully no one else on the course in front of us and Auntie Kathy was behind us.

Camping in Montana

We had a great weekend camping with our friends in Montana. The kids loved playing at the park, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows by the fire, and even a dip in the pool. We checked out the Mysterious vortex place and I have to say, we saw some unusual things that made us wonder. Another highlight of the weekend was feeding the baby animals in the petting zoo with these giant bottles. We had a little rain but for the most part the weather was pretty good.
