MORE WISCONSIN PICS




here are a few more pics. on the last day there i really wanted a pic of the four generations, my grandma, my mom, myself and the boys. justin was not cooperating and my flash on the camera was not working right. needless to say, the pics are pretty bad.

MEMORIAL WEEKEND IN WISCONSIN






ok, i was crazy and took all 3 boys to wisconsin this past weekend to see the family. we stayed at great-oma's house (talk about not baby proofed) and had a fun time. on saturday we went to my cousin rhonda's house and played in the barn. these pics are of the boys with the animals. jordan wanted to manhandle them all and brendan was not too sure about it all. justin loved the baby kitties and wanted to take them all home.

CAREER DAY



justin had career day at school a couple weeks ago. so we asked him what he might want to be when he grows up. his first answer was an army guy, but we didn't have much army camo in the house. his second answer was a police man, but again not much police gear in the house. he ended up wanting to be a rock and roll guitar player!

DAD'S HOCKEY BOY




sorry, one more post tonight. karl is still waiting for one of our boys to follow in his footsteps and love hockey. maybe brendan will end up being that boy! he was loving the hat tonight.

RUB A DUB DUB


my three boys in the tub. ok, i had to do some creative photoshop work to justin, hence the "fake" bubbles in a convenient place. and he also has icecream all over his face. all three really needed a bath tonight, so i dumped them all in there together. if you would have told me ten years ago that i would end up with three boys, i would have laughed out loud. but i love them all and don't know what i'd do without them.

BIRTHDAY



one year ago today i'm sure i was trying to get some sleep after a very long and stressful day. i'm glad it's done and already one year ago. the twins have decided to start taking only one nap per day now instead of two, although they really can't make up their minds, so then end up taking their second nap very late. and now it is eight o'clock and they are upstair in their beds being very naughty, laughing, giggling and crying. whoever thought up the concept of twins (or any multiples for that matter) must not have been in the right frame of mind. or maybe it was just a man. :) anyway, let's hope the next year is that much better than the first. one of these weeks we might make it a whole week of sleeping through the night. one can hope.

FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY





it has arrived, jordan and brendan have almost turned 1. their actual bday is on monday, but we had their party today. they decided to skip their afternoon nap today, so they were quite serious for the whole party. but we all had some fun. brendan loved his cake, jordan was not so sure about it. now let's hope they sleep through the night after all that sugar!
