Family Pictures

Bradys mom is amazing to say the least. She has always done so much for our family and she will honestly never realize how grateful we are for her. I've asked her a million times if she would take our family pictures sometime and she has always said yes, but then I've always put them off. This weekend she called me Saturday morning and says "Hey I just looked out my window and the leaves on my tree in my back yard are beautiful. Lets do your pictures today. Come over around 5 and we will do them." I was pretty excited. This is how they all turned out.....

She's amazing. I think they turned out so cute! Thanks again Jen--You're the best of the best!!!

Bobbie and Lindsays visit 2012

The boys had a great summer I think. We have had a lot of family come visit us which is always fun! First Bradys brother and his family came out, and my boys had a BLAST with them. We finally got to meet their newest baby Brooklynn! She is such a chunky monkey but holy smokes is she BEAUTIFUL! We had lots of fun loving on her while they were here!

The boys spent a lot of time with Grandpa up at the farm and loved every second of it ((of course))!!

The kids had so much fun playing with each other. It’s always hard for us to say bye to them since they live across the country. The boys are all so close in age. Davin and Boston are only 5 days apart and Trevin and Britton are the two younger boys, but it was fun to watch Trevin and Boston bond and hang out with each other just about the whole time they were here. We love these guys, and love when they come to visit. It always seems like the time goes by way to fast!
 I don't know what it is about the picture above^^^^but I absolutely LOVE the looks on both of their faces!! These two boys act like brothers I swear--they fight like it too!

 Trevin and Boston being monkeys in grandma and grandpas trees!
All of the the boys in the back yard. They are all so handsome :)
 All of the grand kids outside after the church. Good looking bunch :)

 I cant get over the two pictures above either.^^^^I captured some pretty cute pictures of Lindsay and Brooklynn. These two were my absolute favorite. Two beautiful girls!!!
 Brooklynn would literally suck on her toes and I had to get a picture of it. I thought it was the cutest thing ever!
The boys were having a sleepover in Dav and Trevs tent at our house one night. They were all watching a movie and about 15 minutes later they all ended up at grandmas having a sleepover in her basement. Good thing we only live 2 doors down!

Meet Wrigley...Our Newest Addition

We were over in Rangely, CO at my grandmas house visiting about a month or so ago, and she has a puppy. His name is Poncho and he's a little chihuahua and he HATES kids. She had to buy a little collar that spits out a citrus smell in his face because whenever he sees a kid, he freaks out and starts barking. My boys LOVE Poncho. We were over there for 4 days and by the end of the 4 days Poncho was loving my boys as well. He was finally getting use to them, letting them pet him, giving him treats, the whole works. On the way home Brady says "so I've been thinking about getting you a small dog". Of course I got a little excited. We've had a couple indoor dogs and I've loved all of them but one. The two I loved died, and the one I hated we gave back to the owner. I've always wanted a Dachshund or a Yorkie puppy. Both so cute! We got to looking and guess what we found---a DORKIE! Half Dachshund and half Yorkie. We ended up bringing him home and my kids have been loving him. He's the cutest little thing and just loves to play with the boys. When I'm ready to get the boys dressed in the mornings before we take them to daycare, we will say "come on Wrigley lets go wake the boys up" and he books it to Davins room and waits by his bed ((he's teeny so he can't jump on anything)) so we can lift him up on his bed. He will lick and jump all over the boys. They must love him because before Wrigley, they were both little bears to wake up in the mornings, but when he wakes them up they are all giggles and smiles! The first thing they want when we get home after work, is to let Wrigley out of his kennel so they can take him outside. We've only had him a few weeks but we've enjoyed him a lot! Davin and Trevin even got him his very own Batman shirt!

I Love This Man....

Brady and I celebrated our 5th anniversary this past weekend. I seriously can't believe we've been married 5 years! They have EASILY been the BEST five years of my life! If I could choose all over again, I would still choose him, no doubt about it! There aren't enough words in this world to explain how much I love this guy. The past 5 years I have watched him grow into the most amazing man and father. I really can't even begin to express how grateful and lucky I am to have him in my life. He is such a hard worker, and doesn't get near enough credit for all he does. He has the best family in the world ((I seriously lucked out 100% on the in-law department!!)). We have brought two of the most amazing and beautiful little boys into this world, and I couldn't ask for a better father for my kids. I love that I never have to worry about my kids feeling unloved or uncomfortable! I love that he loves me for me despite all my flaws, and that he makes me a better person. I know 100% that I want him right next to me to share each and every memory, for the rest of our lives! I thank Heavenly Father, EVERY.SINGLE.DAY, for blessing me with such an amazing husband. There is nothing that I would rather do, then spend the rest of our eternities loving and being with him!

December 7

December 7th is a really good day. Trevins birthday. I can't believe he is two years old--time has seriously flown by. I had a doctors appointment the morning he was born and he told me if I went into labor he wouldn't stop me. I told him right as he walked in "todays the day Dr. Syndergaard" and he just laughed. I wasn't joking--I felt weird all day long at work. I went back to work and got off at 5:30. We went and picked Davin up from Dave and Jens. The roads were seriously awful-it was a blizzard outside and we had to drive to Altamont to go home. If we would have waited maybe 10 or 15 minutes later to leave we wouldn't have made it home because that's when my contractions started. They started progressing and were more painful but I told Brady to just keep driving. When we got home I layed down and Brady brought me some crackers and cheese that I couldn't eat. I told him to call the hospital to see what they thought. He called and they told him to have me get in a warm bath and to take some ibuprofen. My exact words were "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? THAT'S ALL THEY SAID TO DO?". He was a little confused on why he had me call ha. Anyways we called my actual doctor and he said he'd meet us at the hospital. We got what we needed and packed a bag for Davin to spend the night with Grandma and Grandpa. It usually takes about 20-30 minutes to get to Roosevelt from Altamont. In the blizzard it took us close to an hour. By the time we got to Dave and Jens I was bawling because I didn't want to leave Davin and because my contractions were so bad--I was seriously a wreck. We got to the hospital at about 9 and I was only at a 4. My doc came in and broke my water about 10:30 and I got my epidural and he says "I'll probably see you around 2 AM so we can have a baby". At 11:02pm Trevin Dee was born. He was 3 weeks early and had a little trouble breathing so he was on oxygen in the nursery for a day and a half but turned out as healthy as can be. He's been such a blessing to our family and we wouldn't be the same without him in our lives. He has a great personality and loves to be with his big brother at all times. He copies everything Davin says and does.

November 2

What a special day November 2 is. Yes it's my birthday, but that's not why I think it's special. I share a birthday with one of the most amazing little boys in this world, Davin. I seriously can not believe he is four years old. Four years ago I was in labor for 12 hours and 42 minutes ((which I thought would NEVER EVER end)), not knowing what to expect as a first time mom. I was so scared, I didn't have a clue what I was doing or what to do when he would arrive. I soon realized that bringing a baby into this world is truly one of the biggest blessings that has ever been a part of my life. Davin has taught me so much about myself, motherhood, patience ((what kid doesn't!?)), and just how precious life really is. I love that boy more then I ever could explain, and I'm so grateful that he picked Brady and I to be his earthly parents, because I have no clue where we would ever be in this world, with out his sweet little spirit. SOOO I know this post is late, but here are just a few of my favorite things about him, and a few cute pictures as well.

1. When we walk in the door after work, the first thing he ALWAYS says is "are you guys done with work!?" and then jumps up to give us hugs.
2. The way he loves the color pink. We know he's tough enough to wear pink so we don't mind--one day we told him it was for girls and he told me "My uncle Bobbie's favorite color is purple so mine is pink." Okay then :)
3. His nearly never-ending energy.
4. Love his little giggle, its so stinking cute.
5. He considers Trevin his best friend--although they can be worst enemies at the same time. He's an amazing big brother.
6. He will randomly tell people he loves them out of the blue--and it literally melts your heart.
7. The way he acts so silly when he's tired--He get's a little crazy!
8. The way he loves his Daddy--I love watching them together and love that they're so close.
9. His singing--You know Davin is in a perfectly good mood when he sings!
10. I love his sweet little smile--it would brighten any ones day!

Halloween 2011

We carved pumpkins 2 nights before Halloween. I know kind of late but it was still a lot of fun.

Davin changed his mind a thousand times before he decided he wanted to be Spiderman. Trevin was the cutest lion ever. Every time someone asked him what a lion said he would put his "claws" up and try and growl. I'm so happy that it was warmer this year on Halloween then it was last year. Last year it was blowing and rain/sleeting, it was awful. It was so fun to be able to go in our own neighborhood this year also. Here are a few pictures of the cutest spiderman and lion ever!

October Fun

Usually I don't really get TOO excited for the holidays. Now that we are in our own house and in town ((which I still need to post pictures of...)) I've been so excited for the holidays to start. Brady is about sick of me making things and it's only October. It's been fun especially for my boys, except Davin keeps asking me "mom why are you doing that?" "mom why do we need this here?". But him and Trev have been the best helpers.

My really good friend Kaycee came over and we made these pumpkins. I wish I still had a picture of hers. She made hers shorter and they turned out super cute. I made some for Bradys mom to put on her porch and she loved them!

The Boys made this skeleton. It's just a little puzzle that goes on the fridge. They've loved it so far. Trevin likes taking pieces off just to make Davin mad haha.

The Boys and Brady and I made this little spider. I painted everything black, Brady and the boys did the wire, and Dav helped paint the face. Trevin will lay down in front of the spider on his belly and just stare at it. It's been cute to have!

It's been so fun living in a "neighborhood". Sunday night we heard a knock at the door so Brady answered it and there was nobody there. But there were some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies at the doorstep. It had a note on it that said we had been hit by the Halloween Phantom and we had to pass two treats to two neighbors in two days or we would have a curse. Dav, Trev, and I made these pumpkin cupcakes. I thought it was fun making the cupcakes--but the boys thought it was hilarious that we put them on the doorstep, knocked, and then ran as fast as we could. We got Bradys sisters ((his parents aren't home right now :( )). After we rang the doorbell Aunt Rieley opened the door and their dog was barking and we were hiding by the garage and Trevin kept saying "mom that's pooka, that's pooka". I'm really surprised that Rie didn't hear him...

So far it's been fun, I'm excited to see what other fun we can come up with in the next couple of months.
