Sierra's Antics

Sierra's been very busy lately! Her and her partner in crime!! BEN! She got into the cereal cabinet and was eating the trix. Ben showed her how to DUMP them all over the floor and then eat them!

The fireplace she did all on her own...well, MacKensie Peterson helped her up, but she climbed in all on her own.

She LOVES to help me in the kitchen, I give her a bowl, a spoon and some measuring cups and she's happy!

So unfortunate

Unfortunately these are the ONLY pictures that were taken this year in front of our Christmas tree:( I don't know what happened..other than life, but these are the only ones I have. These were taken while the boys were decorating the tree.

We actually set up the pack-n-play for Sierra so that she wouldn't get into the village, but Ben decided HE needed to be in it instead.
Oh, well...maybe I'll do better next year. I did get a few on Christmas morning...I'll post those later.

while my family was here we went to see the lights at CALM (our tiny little zoo, if you can call it that) They actually have a fabulous display, and we always enjoy ourselves.

Sierra and daddy on the train.

It was really cold and we are no longer prepared for cold weather!!! My boys don't even have a warm jacket! Just hoodies.
Ben was SO excited to be able to ride on the trolley! They had a little yellow trolley and he REALLY wanted to ride on it. Lucky for us we were able to ride it just before we left!

Christmas morning

Christmas morning was FANTASTIC! It was nice a easy. The boys woke up around 7:30 and we just took it easy. It was really nice to have my family visit. The kids all got pillow pets from Santa!! they were SO excited!!

Sierra was really getting into opening her presents. She loved seeing what was inside everything!

Ben LOVES his new bike...although it is a little big...he can grow into it! What a fantasitc day...we just took it easy. When it was time for Sierra's nap, we all watched a movie,played, or took a nap. Then got back to more presents. I love having a slow christmas.

Christmas jammies!

Sorry, a lot of my pictures are blurry. I was messing with my camera and forgot to put it back on auto focus. OOPS!

They're all just so cute in their christmas jammies!

What can YOU do in November?

I decided that I better be fair and post my falling. As you can see...we can go wake boarding!!!

I love the fact that the leaves have turned.

Bob got to go as the sun was going STILL wasn't that cold!

Then, Ryan and Justin got out and showed us how it's REALLY done!

Back in September I went to check on Sierra, and I found her sleeping like least she's not sleeping on her left side anymore! I just don't think this will work once that helmet comes off!

6 months old and check out those thighs!!!!
In October I was working outside and Sierra decided to crawl outside. Ben was cleaning up his rocks. I wasn't paying very good attention.....Sierra decided to eat charcoal! I got her right away, but she was still nice and black.

Condors game!!!!

Last Saturday night some friends called and said they had some Condors Hockey tickets they weren't going to use. We JUMPED on it! Got a sitter for Sierra and took the boys to the game! We were 4 rows behind the players! AWESOME seats! Andrew was worried about it being too loud and Ben was just excited!!! Because it was the day before Halloween, they wore their costumes. Good thing too, it's the only one I have of Andrew in his.

Andrew stuck his hands through the bars and got to high five the players on their way to the locker room. He can't wait to go back....something he and daddy can do together!!!!

As it turned out...Andrew was TOTALLY into the game and Ben was scared of the players. He didn't like all the pads on the goalies. Oh well, he didn't act too scared, he just kept hiding behind the chairs.


I was using a new function on my phone and didn't realize I had to save every picture that I, this is the only one I have from trunk-or-treat. Ben was Super Why! Here he is chilling in the back of our new van. Andrew was Vert from Hot Wheels:Battle Force Five. And Sierra was a pumpkin...the same costume the boys wore on their first Halloween. It BARELY fit her, but it was good enough for one night. (it's a sweat suit and the sweats went to her knees)

Pumpkin carving

On Saturday we finally got around to carving our pumpkins. We remembered from last year that if you carve them too soon, they get moldy and icky before Halloween even gets here! We had the boys draw what they wanted on their pumpkins so that Bob could carve them.

Benjamin's Pumpkin

Andrew kept starting year, no permanent markers.

All aglow Halloween night. For it being on a Sunday we actually had several trick-or-treaters! The boys loved handing out the candy and fought to get to the door first. We actually shut down at 7:30 when Andrew went to bed, but heard kids out side long in to the night. Andrew said on Mon that there were a lot of kids missing from doubt staying up too late and eating too much candy:)

Family trip to pumpkin patch

Ben and I had so much fun at the pumpkin patch we decided we should take the whole family back. Sierra rode up high and LOVED every minute of it. She thought it was the BEST view!

This was my view the whole time...They were FAST and I had a hard time keeping up with them.

They were so excited to be at the pumpkin patch....and that we made it out of the maze!

They BEGGED to have these pictures taken! But according to Ben I must have been taking to long.
