Yesterday I played taxi driver for Doug since one of our cars is getting fixed right now we're down to one ride and I'm not a fan. Krew didn't mind tho cause we made a couple trips to daddy's school. When we dropped lunch off to him Krew went thru his normal pleeding with Doug. . . "daddy sit down," "daddy come to Krew's house" and when none of those worked he said "Imma go schooo toooo daddy!" So, Doug took Krew in for a little tour of his school since it was sat. and it wasn't super crowded. When Krew got back into the car all he would say is "that is Nice! that is so nice!" or "I wanna study with Dane and Aaron toooo momma!" It made me think tho. . . I'm glad Krew looks up to Doug so much and I'm glad that Doug sets such a good example for Krew. I hope when college rolls around for Krew he remembers how cool he thought daddy's school was :)
We have have been party hardyin lately :) ok just a couple times when Doug doens't have to study his brains out. I made these tasty treats for halloween. They are to die for. Seriously. Let me tell you about them. . . they are called cake pops. I love them. My family calls me cakelin because I LOVE CAKE :) This is the first time I have made these so their not the cutest but they taste absolutly amazing. If I make it to Heaven this is what will be on the menu. Cake pops. Everyday. I could have eaten all of them. Over Thanksgiving break we got invited to go to a cabin with some other dental students. While we were there us ladies made Thanksgiving dinner that was to die for. The turkey was Amazing . . ok everything was amazing! (Obviously I didn't cook to much:) I wish I would have gotten a pic. of the big feast. It was huge. I needed two plates just to get one serving of everything. There were tonz of sides. Doug was IN HEAVEN. besides the feast the kiddos played all day together and wore eachother out. It was awesome! Here are the few pics that I did manage to take on my awesome camera phone. Brody was pretty much a celebrity up there. Kisses from all the girls . .. There was lots of fun to be had jumping from bed to bed. . . My little composer: :) Krew was in love with the piano there! He would sit on the bench and get so serious and then start playing the keys and sometimes singing. I'm such a big black Friday shopper. This wonderful pic. was taken at 2 AM when a bunch of friends bumped into each other. Guess we all like good deals. . . Breaking Dawn. . . need I say more? I know some people don't like this movie but I DO NOT fall into that category. Me and my friends out here all went to the premiere and it was a BLAST! We even got interviewed and got to be on the news! We all got together and made shirts for the event. They were pretty funny. Here are some of the sayings that were on out shirts: Little nudger (my friends that is prego wore this) I like my men cold, dead, and sparkling. I tried to steal Jasper but Alice saw me coming. I love sparkly vamps. Bitten Imprinted. The Cullen crest.
-We had such a great time and I can hardly wait for this movie to come out on video and for part two to come out!
Krew has made lots of new friends out her in Buffalo. Here are a few that I have pics of. This first one is Molly with Krew in nursery. For some reason these two are always the last ones sitting at the snack table gobbling up all the extra treats! :) Krew plays alot with Carter and Parker. They usually get along ok but sometimes they fight just like brothers. . .they like to wrestle . . . lots. The boys looking out the window the the garbage truck. . .what is it with boys and trucks? Another one of Krew's friends is Maddie- she just lives down the street from us. Maddie is really smart. And of course I can't forget Ms. Ragan Alexis Dobbins! Ray lives two houses down from us and I'm glad she puts up with Krew pestering her cause she"s Brody's Fav. (she always makes him smile and babble) and I really like it when she does my hair! :) LOVE her! Krew has lots of new friends but he still really misses his best friend Aunt Abi. My mom sent me a pic. of Abi and her new Boyfriend cause they got nominated for homecoming royalty woot woot! I showed Krew the pic of Abi and he did NOT like seeing her with another friend :) He kept staring at this pic. saying "thats my Abi momma!"
Just a couple pics of my little man Brody. I don't feel like I post enough pics of this little sweetie Brody is 2.5 months old and he can: hold up his head no prob., roll over, smile ALL THE TIME and put on the lbs. like its no one's business! At his two month Dr. Apt. he weighed in at almost 15lbs. and 23 inches long! What a chunker! He makes everyone around here so happy. We love you Brodster! If you think his smile is cute. . . you should hear his laugh! He started laughing a couple weeks ago and its the cutest thing EVER! Once, Krew was right in front of his chair and Krew started laughing which made Brody start laughing. Its pretty much my favorite sound. I love holding Brod right before his bath and checking out all his rolls:) I love my chubby baby!
This year for Halloween a few of us got together and took our kids around trick or treating together. Krew got so much candy! We decided to make a party out of it so all the adults ok- MOST of the adults dressed up. Krew's dalmation outfit from last year still fit and honestly with a new baby around I wasn't feeling to up to organizing new costumes so no judging but yes, he is wearing the same outfit as he did last year. I'm a great mom. Oh well, he loved it! Here are some other of my fav. costumes:
Josh and Liz: Or should I say Jess and Larry? Liz is trying to disguise her 8.5 month pregnant belly as a beer belly. She is due on the 10th! I'm so EXCITED for her! My fav. part of this ensemble is the cig's. I think Josh is really liking the new curves on his body:) Uncle Rico and his babe. Oh, there is Carter and Parker to . . . gotta love the stach. Why does this remind me of a pic that I have with my parents when I was little? Yikers. Us at our ward Halloween Party. Yep, Krew is on a sugar high. We also went to a pumpkin patch. All of these kids' daddys are first year dental students. In order left to right: Krew, Molly, Parker, Maddy, Carter Mia: Addy, Bell, Tara Krew Had fun playin at the play place even tho the carnival wasn't going. Next year we'll have to take Doug and go when the rides are open. We did look at pumpkins :) And the petting zoo for a min. lol. Where was I? Who knows. Feeding Brody? Maybe chasing Krew? Gosh I'm bad at pic taking! I'm hoping to score a camera on black friday. Then hopefully I will be better and more excited to take pics! :)
Today I dressed Brodster up for church and thought man he sure reminds me of Krew. I remembered that I had a pic of Krew in this outfit so I took a pic and later discovered that in these pics the boys are pretty close to the same age! (Brody is 3 days older) So out here in Buffalo there is LOTS of little girls. Its no secret that I would LOVE to have a little chica. Girls are so fun. So sweet. I love watching the little girls out here with their daddys. Its precious. Watching is all I can do for now being that me and Doug won't be having any more kids while we're here. But I really hope that one day I can get a girl :) My sister Ashley just found out that she will be having a little girl in March along with one of my food friends from high school Missy! I'm so excited for them. And, a little jelous. Ok good, I admitted it. I found myself in a bit of a slump. I've already gone a little crazy buying little girl baby gifts. . . . Girls are just so fun to shop for! You can dress them up so cute! OK, so I guess these air Jordans that Brody had been sportin lately are pretty sweet . . . :) Anyway, back to the point. I've been thinking about all the things that I love about my boys. There is a large list:) Although one day I hope to have a girl, These two boys are pretty much the funnest. I'm excited I had two in a row the same gender. I hope they will be best buds! Brody is SUCH a good baby. He's always smiling at me and cooing and frankly I'm wrapped right around his finger. I can already tell that he has such a good little personality. Krew is a FIREBALL! He pushes me right to my limits. Daily. But, I do have to say that He sure can pick me up when I"m down. There is nothing like a hug from Krew. It melts your heart. He is a very sensitive ilttle boy. Whenever I get after him or put him in time out he usually will come up to me afterward and say "I'm sorry you got mad momma." He also loves loves loves his little brother. He is such a great helper. Whenever Brody is crying he will search for his binkey and shove it in his mouth. If he can't find Brody's binkey he improvises and gives Brody his binkey (which is LOTS larger!) it usually makes Brody gag and I try to step in before Brody pukes:) Lately I've been trying to teach Brody how to fall asleep on his own and letting him cry it out a little bit before naps and bed time. Krew CAN"T STAND it that I won't help him. The other day, I was in the kitchen and just listening to Brody (who was crying) in the monitor. All of the sudden I hear Krew's voice loud and clear saying "its ok Body- Krew is here" Krew had snuck upstairs and crawled into Brody's crib with him. Sweet right? I love these two precious boys. I'm so lucky to have them and I wouldn't trade either of them for the world.
So the fall season here in Buffalo ROCKS. The leaves are BEAUTIFUL. We have SO MANY leaves on our lawn its incredible. On sat. Doug was cleaning them up and Krew really wanted to go outside to help him so I bundled him up and he had a good ol time playin in the leaves. I have to admit that I was excited to stop working and be a stay at home mom but honestly, I was worried that we would be a little bored. I shouldn't have worried because there is alot of fun things going on here. The fire station close to our house had a fun thing going on the other night. They let kids come and check out the fire trucks! Krew was talking about it all day long! He's a big talker cause when we got there all he wanted to do was cover his ears and watch from a safe distance :) He really liked seeing the big ladder and spraying the hose tho. He's still talking about it. . . and talking about it and talking about it. . . to much talking! Krew is still liking his trike . . . on days that its not to cold he likes to bundle up and go ride it on the side walk. We've also had quite a few pretty rainy days here . . . Since its been so rainy we've had to stay inside and play quite a bit. Krew is really starting to like to play with his toys. He's into air planes, trains, loaders, dump trucks, monster trucks, ect ect. He's fun to watch play with them. He usually lines them up in a row and races them or makes them jump off of the furniture. I went in Krew's room to check on him one day and he had made these "garages" out of some blocks for his cars. Silly boy. And lastly, just a pic of my littlest man. He's getting so big!
Today was Brody's first day at church. After I got both boys ready (which by the way took me SOOOOOOO long!, Fear not, we were only five min late for church! yahoo!) anyway, I couldn't stop staring at the boys after i got them ready. I know every mom thinks that her child is adorable which is how it should be but I really couldn't believe how cute these boys looked. I'm so blessed. I love em so much! My friend Jen made Brody's tie and gave it to me at my shower. She is an amazing seamstress. Thanks Jen! And one of Krewzer, missionary part and all.
For playgroup this week we got to go the airport and get a close up of the helicopters! Krew absolutely loves the air port. He's always talking about the airplanes that go high and are loud. Its probably his favorite thing to do here so he was extra excited for playgroup this week. Great choice Stephanie! Even tho Krew LOVES da helicopers he was deathly affraid it would turn on and be loud. So, sadly he wouldn't get in it but he watched from a safe distance with his ears plugged. This is how close it is to the landing strip! i'm sure it won't be long before we're back!
Doug and I were married in Idaho Falls, Id. Feb. 2008. We have two sweet boys. Krew is 2 years old and full of energy. Brody came to us a few months ago and has been such a blessing. Our boys bring so much joy and happiness to us. Right now we are currently living in Buffalo, Ny. where Doug is attending dental school at UB.
