Puzzle time

Play ball

It's that time of year again, Spring has sprung here in NE (well kind of) its time to put away those indoor Soccer cleats and dust off those ball bags. Yep its Baseball time again. Noah will be moving up to Rookie this year. Which means no more tee, he is thrilled to get rid of the tee, and along with Rookie comes weekly practices. Dad and Tom (our really good friends out here) are teaming up again this year to coach these ever rowdy 7 year old boys! Practice stresses me out right now but I'm sure we will all adjust just fine. Noah will be practicing on Thursdays from 6-7:30. Yes I said 7:30! This is really going to cut into my kids bedtimes and I'm hoping that Dad will be able to make every practice allowing me to at least get 2 in bed on time.

Bryce not only gets to play Tee Ball this year he gets to play in the same league has his brother! He will be one of the youngest on the team at 4 but he is super excited. Tom is his coach this year and this is a big deal for Bryce. Not only has Tom been his "buddy" out here, he has also watched Dad and Tom coach the older boys for the past 2 years. And he gets to be on his friends on his team. I'm so excited to see my little peanut out on the field holding his own with the older kids this year.

So Saturdays will be split between two different ball fields cheering on two different very special boys. Chloe will be in attendance for it all cheering loudly for both her big brothers!

Go Pirates and White Sox!!!!

USB cord nightmare

I went to upload some adorable photos today of Bryce and Chloe doing puzzles together. However I am now tangled up in USB cord hell. Why do we have so many USB cords and do we really use/have all the gadgets these cords to go?

Heaven on a stick

Starbucks is now selling these delishish little pieces of heaven on a stick. Have you tried a cake pop yet? I suggest you drop everything and run to your nearest Starbucks and try it. My favorite is the Rocky Road YUMMY! And starting today from 2-5 with any drink purchase you get to try one for FREE. Can you guess where I will be this afternoon?

I must learn to make these little delishish cakes!

Over Christmas break, Ben aka "Dad" was able to take the week of with the boys. We did lots of fun stuff that week, but the group favorite was sledding. Noah got his 1st snowboard for Christmas and Bryce got a snow boogie board. Chloe didn't get any snow toys this year but did get a comfy outfit to keep her warm ;). Bryce has done a 180 from last year and absolutely loved sledding! We couldn't keep up with him...good thing he had a helment because he seemed to always be going down head first! Noah loved his new snowboard and is dying for more snow to go again. I don't think Chloe is looking forward to another sledding day as much as her big brothers ;)

Happy New Year!!!

Wow its 2011 already! Crazy how fast they go by now. I remember when I was a kid time went so slow, you know how it took FOREVER to get out of high school now its just flying by. Lots of fun things planned this year and lots of same ol' same ol'. This will be our last full year here at this Station :(. So that means empty your bucket list year and make the most out of the area because you might not be staying.

So I left off with family pictures. How totally awesome are they? I know, I know. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years has all come and gone and we are now gearing up for Noah's 7th Birthday, Mom's Birthday and Chloe turns the BIG 1 next month!!!! We also have winter trips (cross our fingers and toes) planned, family visits, soccer, junior gym, more soccer and we are already tossing around Baseball talk. Its only January and I feel like I'm living in March already.

Okay kids~

Noah~ Is almost 7!!! I can't believe it, seems like yesterday I was running after him in Newport climbing up everything just to jump off. He is still an amazing kid and still in every way my cuddle bug. He is doing awesome at school and for the most part enjoys going everyday. He is kicking some serious butt in Soccer and is learning to snowboard. Of course he thinks he knows everything and will tell you all the time.

Bryce~ Our little Bryce is still as funny as ever! Still our comedian of the family (next to Dad of course) He is loving preschool and they love him! He has his little friends now and loves his very own play dates. He is still doing Junior Gym and is itching to start Soccer. He might also be starting TBall this Spring. He has had a few issues with his ears and throat. But we are hoping this will all be corrected soon and he will be back to feeling 100%.

Chloe~ Our little Princess is almost 1. She is such a doll and raising little girls is much different then little boys. She is just the sweetest most gentle baby ever. Very cautious with every move she makes and loves loves loves her babies! She is crawling at mach speed and starting to take a few steps here and there. A little slow on the teeth but not lacking on the pain of teething. I would love to say "she is into everything like a curious 1 year old" However she isn't. She is a very easy baby. She loves her brothers more then anything and has to be where they are, and they want her with them at all times. Watching her little face light up when Daddy gets home just melts my heart.

So there you have it. Up to date and ready to roll. Hopefully this year will allow for more time to blog and share our funny little stories with you all.
