Random Pictures

I just had to post a few pictures of the boys. I usually try and get up and get showered and ready before the boys wake up and I sometimes don't make it since they wake up between 6:00 and 6:30, but Braxton is so excited to see Bridger in the mornings that he likes to climb in the crib and play with him while I finish getting ready... This particular morning Braxton had my MP3 Player and they were sitting in there listening to music!! It was so cute I had to take some pictures. The other pictures are of Bridger and this is how I found him taking his nap this afternoon. He was sitting up in the corner of his crib sound asleep so I had to take some pictures. Isn't he so sweet! I love spending my days with them! He also likes to empty drawers out and sit in them.. One of these days I'm hoping to post a video of him walking but he's not quite there yet. He is getting close and will take about 3 to 5 steps at a time so I think it will be soon! Oh and just so you know half the pictures are of Bridger without pants, because he's to skinny and they are to big in the waist and he crawls right out of them so I decided that unless we are going somehwere he will be pantless until he starts walking!!! It gets to be a pain putting them on a million times a day!!!!

LIVING IN IDAHO...."GOING RIDING WITH DAD"

So the last two Saturdays I haven't seen Braxton or Russell for most of the day. Since we are living in Idaho, Russell's brothers go riding every weekend and Russell and Braxton have been going with them and loving it. Russell's brothers have these side by side machines called Razor's and Rhinos and they have been going to the mountains while the weather has been nice. It's all braxton talks about and Russell and his brothers are amazed that Braxton isn't scared... Apparently it is a good thing that I am not there... Every time they get home Braxton comes running in saying "Mom we went really fast and we went up some really big mountains!!! It scares me, but he is enjoying having his dad around to do things with, so its good for them, plus it gives me a much needed break!!! I only have two pictures of them before they left, but I thought they were so funny. Braxton had to wear his hat backward's like his dad!!



CARVING PUMPKINS, HALLOWEEN PARTIES AND MORE!

Halloween was a lot of fun this year.. We started by carving our pumpkins on Wednesday night and me not being the very crafty one was pretty proud of our pumpkins!!! Ha Ha! Thanks to templates online we were able to come up with some faces!! I can't find the video, but when i cut open the pumpkins to carve them Braxton had a fit!! It was to messy for him... I took his shirt off so he could dig in, and he stuck his hand in, pulled out one seed and decided that was enough for him so he wouldn't touch it again!! So lucky me got to clean out both pumpkins by myself while Russell was putting together our computer desk and braxton was looking at me like I was crazy!! Thursday night we went to the church halloween party, and Friday we went to my Mom's house, and both grandparents houses. After that we went over to Doug and Beckies for a halloween party and saw all of Russell's family. Russell took Braxton trick or treating for a little while and then we went home. It's so much fun to be home close to our families, we love it!! We didn't stay very long because Bridger was so ready for bed!! Oh and by the way let me explain Bridger was suppose to be a skunk but he threw a major fit the night of our ward party and bawled like crazy so we ended up switching him to be a lion. Thanks to Tiffany who let us borrow the costume or he wouldn't have had one!!! He was much happier in the lion costume, though I'm not sure why!!!! So at the ward party he was a lion, but he was okay in the skunk costume for Halloween so he that's why you will see him in two different costumes! Braxton was spiderman and loved every minute of it!!











BRIDGER'S 1ST BIRTHDAY!








Hey everyone I'm back in the blogging world!!! We finally got our computer set up and and I am so far behind that I just figured I would start from this point and move forward instead of going clear back through summer! Just an update.... We moved to Idaho October 1th and are living in Rigby. We have gotten pretty much moved in, but still have a lot of organizing to do and we still don't have our T.V. set up = (!!! So needless to say I'm missing way to many of my shows!!!), but at the same time it has been pretty nice, to be able to just focus on getting stuff done and playing with the kids... Braxton starting preschool last week and is loving it. He has it Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:15-10:45, which is perfect and I love that I can take him and pick him up.. Another good note, we got multiple offers on our house last week on the same day and after a little negotiating accepted an offer pretty close to what we were asking. We are very excited and hope that everything goes through with the inspection and appraisal, If so we will be closing on November 20th and then closing on our house here in Rigby. Bridger also celebrated his 1st birthday the 28th and we had a family party for him on the 26th. It was so fun to be able to have lots of family over, but he wasn't quite sure what to think of everyone!! Here are some pictures of him opening presents and his birthday cake... By the way he hated the cake and didn't want to even touch it.. He would barely touch the cake, so I grabbed his hand and smashed it into the cake and he bawled!!! It was too funny! Oh and by the way he still does have his helmet = ( We went back to Salt Lake on October 21st hoping we would be done but he has to have it until at least December 16th that's when we will go back in and meet with the doctor's...

Catching up....Summer Fun!

Hey Everyone! So I'm finally going to do a catchup from the summer! I don't know if I will get it all done today so I will post what I can. In July we had a family reunion with my Mom's side of the family in Island Park and we had so much fun! It was so fun to see everyone and let all the kids play with their cousins! We played games and helped do some maintenance on the cabin for Grandma and Grandpa. We got to see our aunts and uncles and cousins that live in Washington, Colorado, and Boise, and I realized just how old I'm getting! My cousins are getting so grown up, I can't believe it. Braxton had fun playing with Austin and I think they spent hours playing Badminton! They look so much a like that it cracks me up! It will be fun when we are in Idaho and can see them more! I thought it would be easier to post a slideshow so enjoy!

BRAXTON & BRIDGER'S FIRST BOWLING TRIP!

So Russell came to town this weekend to do some more work around the house and to get a few more things done so that we can hopefully get it sold!! We worked hard all day Saturday and decided to go and do something fun together as a family. We had been outside in the heat all day so we decided to go bowling and can I just say Oh My heck it was hilarious!!! I don't think Russell and I have ever laughed so hard. Braxton was so funny and so proud of himself. We had so much fun! We can't wait until Bridger is old enough to share in the fun too, but he loves to watch his older brother!

FIREWORKS AT GRANDMA AND GRANDPA TOLBERTS










Here are some pictures of us doing fireworks at Grandma and Grandpa Tolberts. Russell loaded up on fireworks this year and the boys had so much fun! I got some cute pictures of Braxton and Bridger this night too. It's hard to get pictures of them both looking at me, so I did some separately as well. Braxton made it until about 30 seconds into the fireworks at the Greenbelt in Idaho Falls and was out cold. He had a long busy day!!! Hopefully he makes it longer next year!!
And Oh yeah I'm in trouble because he likes to drink my mountain dew!!!

WATER FUN AT GRANDMA AND GRANDPA DROLLINGERS!
















After the Parade we went to Grandma and Grandpa's for a barbecue and to play on the slip n' slide. Paytin, MaKay, Braxton and Rylee all had fun and when they got tired of that they put a sprinkler under the trampoline. Lisal and Tristan jumped with them and then helped the kids start a water fight by chasing everyone around with the sprinkler. It was great fun! Russell and I hid out in the house most of the time = )!!
