Even looking at this picture gives me the creeps!

Andrew took the boys camping over the weekend and Carter brought home a little surprise.
Yep, a tick.

Carter was very patient while we got it out (it took about half an hour of tugging) and he didn't even seem grossed out when we showed him the pictures afterwards! Andrew, on the other hand, is still have nightmares about it!

Valentine Festivities

I really got into the spirit of Valentine's Day this year, I did all the things I usually say I am going to do but never end up actually doing :) Maybe it's my way of rebelling because I am in a house full of boys and it's the only time of the year I can make everything pink and heart shaped.

We started by making Valentine place settings (which I didn't get any pictures of) and we then decorated sugar cookies.

I continued to go overboard by spending hours the night before Valentine's decorating the front room with with tons of hearts, and setting out "treat" bags for all my boys.

For breakfast we had pink heart shaped pancakes. They didn't look too pretty but it's the thought that counts.....right?

For dinner we had yummy salmon and salad.
And since we had such a healthy dinner we decided to gorge ourselves with chocolate fondue for dessert, and it was sooo goood!

We also made valentine's for some of the neighbor kids but only delivered a few of them. I guess we will have to save them for next year ;)

We also took these pictures of Tristan over the weekend and I thought he looked so cute I had throw them in as well.

Half Birthday

Tristan is now 6 months old! We are so happy to have this sweet little guy in our family. Things Tristan loves are playing with his brothers, watching his brothers, playing with anything he can get his hands on, being spoon fed, going for walks, being outside, pulling hair, putting everything in his mouth, playing peek-a-boo and being tickled. Things he has learned is to sit up by himself, laugh, get his brothers to laugh, grab and hold things, roll over, sleep through the night (well...sometimes) and he has also learned how to be the center of our world and we love giving him all the attention we can!

Happy Half Birthday Tristan!
We love you!

Random Favorite Pictures

I was going through old pictures and picked out some of my favorite from when Carter and Parker were younger.
