It always seems like I'm to busy for this blog. And I guess I probably am. However its a good way to keep track of when things happen, and how they're going.

Things like this for example, Rye started potty training less then two weeks ago, and he's fully trained. He is doing so good. WOO HOO! I love only having one kiddo in diapers.

And how Tel can say ta-ta now when he wants something and always waves goodbye to me when he slips off our bed or leaves a room.

And Kane is turning into a big kid so fast. He remembers everything about everyone... all the time. He is my greatest helper, always asking "can I help mama" so we try to make sure there is always something to help with!
Nothing really exciting happens from day to day, but life is still pretty good. Thinking of people facing things that make my heart ache it makes me thankful for the simplicity of our lives.

Anyways these are just a few updated pictures on my phone. sorry the quality isn't very good!

always better when you have someone to talk to

Kane turned four back in January, but I am a little behind on blog posts so i'll try and catch up a little!

He asked if he could have a fish birthday... For those of you who really know me I'm not a true crafter. I love to think I am... but its not a natural thing! Anyways the night before Kane turned four, I crafted... anything for my boys :)

He loved it all... so it was a success. The day of his birthday we surprised him by taking the boys swimming. We went in the back door of the rec center, and I've never seen him so excited. For those who read this thinking "wow you should take your kids swimming more often" haha then your right but the closest pool that is kid friendly is an hour and a half drive... so we do our best! We had Boston Pizza for lunch (another treat for us) where they sang to a very happy kid!

His birthday was fun. Only two of the kids invited were able to make it, but it just meant more treats for the ones that did come :) and extra goodie bags are always a good thing!

Here's a few pictures of the day :)
hard to see the fish... but they are there!
