CONNECTION!!!!




I am so happy! I finally have a connection! Now I can finally join the blogging world once again.
So since my last post Kylie lost one of her front teeth, and turned 6. She had a little party of her own planning. We painted toenails, decorated flip-flops, made bracelets, and wacked the fetch out of a pinata. She is quite the party planner, and it turned out to be quite fun.
Toast turns 5 on Saturday, and keeps changing his mind about what kind of birthday he wants. It used to be Diego, but he really isnt into him anymore, and then he wanted it to be Starwars, but now he says he just wants muffins. No idea what that even means. Daniel has been telling him chewbacca stories at bedtime, and thats been stemming his growing interest in star wars, but the other day he pulled out the starwars dvds and asked if he could watch them. I told him they were a little too scary but he insisted he wouldnt get scared and that he would be brave. So I decided we would try it out. He LOVED it. Now he wants to watch all of them. I am surprised cuz this is the kid who is terrified of swiper the fox. Apparently Darth Vader is tame when compared to a sneaky fox who swipes your stuff. Go figure.
James is coming up on his 2nd b-day in two more weeks. A few weeks ago we finally bought him a crib-tent, which has been the best thing EVER! He was climbing out of his crib more than 30 times each night and it was seriously killing me off hauling him up the stairs that many times over. Now the little monkey cant escape. Happy day for me!
Ben is 6 months old now and he is solid as can be. He is huge! He has started crawling and he sits up -kinda- he leans on his arms so he's at a weird 45 degree angle. But he seems pretty happy about it-until he tries to move and flops over. He still is spitting up gallons. Tyler got quite the surprise a few weeks ago in the middle of sacrament meeting. he went to give Ben a hug and as his face was right under Bens, Ben spewed his entire bottles worth of puke right in Tys face. Tylers look of horrification was just just too good to be true. Oh how i wish I had a camera for that memory. It still is making me laugh.
So seeing as how the kids birthdays are just a few weeks within each others, we take them to go get their birthday pictures, and since we dont have a kiddie kandids in yuma, we go to san diego and make a little trip out of it. We headed there last Friday. Saturday, after pictures and lunch, we spent the day on the beach. I love watching Daniel play with the kids. It melts my heart. He is such a cute dad. Anyway it was a fun quick trip.
Now that I have this written I can hopefully spend the next few days/week catching up on 2 months worth of blogs. Hooray!

Hey! I am so glad you found my blog! I didn't know you had one. Anyways I will be adding you to my list of blogs. Your family is so cute. your kids are getting so big. It is so fun to see how your family is doing:) We always miss you!

Sabra said...

Glad you're back!

Cook Zoo said...

Hooray! You're back!!! I've missed hearing how you're doing! Sorry my blog's keeping you so busy, LOL.

I've been thinking and thinking about when we can come see you. Brian has had 3 weekends in a row filled with scout stuff (last one is this weekend), and then the next three weekends they'll finally be moving the office, and then the next weekend we have family coming in FROM San Diego, then the next weekend is another scout thing. Grrr!! That means our first free Saturday is Nov 8. I'm thinking it's going to be COLD if we go then. What do you think?

Cook Zoo said...

Oh, and Kylie looks soooo cute with her missing tooth. That's too cute that Toast wants a muffin party. I think you should totally do that! LOL I can't believe James is so old now (Ben too, for that matter!). These kids just keep right on growing!

I'm sorta glad you didn't have the camera for the puking. LOL. ;)

Yay, a post, I was wondering if everything was alright, it has been a long time. Your kiddos pictures are gorgeous and man I can only imagine the pricelsess expression on Tyler's face when the baby puked up on his face. I had that happen to me before when I was doing the airplane thing with Kenz, I had her flying above my head and I was making the goofy happy faces and boom, I got it in my mouth and all down my shirt, it was so gross, but it still makes me laugh. Well I am glad you guys had a good trip to Sandiego and hope things are going great!

I'm so glad you're back. Its so hard getting out of the loop and trying to catch back up. I don't know how you handle all those birthdays together. Do you get partied out? You're one good mom!

Kristy said...

I'm so glad you're back! Yeah! I love hearing all the fun stories and about the b-day parties etc... It's so fun to stay in touch, we've missed you! Give all the kiddies a hug from their cousins and their favorite aunt & uncle!

Deb said...

I was worried about how you were doing since it's been so long. From now on instead of worrying I'll just asume a computer problem.

Your kids are georgous. Especially Kylie. She's going to be a knock out when she gets older.

Christie said...

She is back! Finally. I loved the stories, I can't wait to see what Ben looks like... get a few pic's of him up here will ya? Did you talk to mom about Thanksgiving?

The Davis Diaries said...

Welcome back! Yeah! I would have LOVED to see Ben puke in Ty's face, poor guy!!! But That would have done me in for the rest of church- I wouldn't have stopped laughing! Allison and Halle LOVE star wars (only the old ones we let them watch) and lightsabers are the best Christmas gift! Dangerous at times, but fun! I'm going to keep from writing a book to you this time, but things are good here. Feeling huge, ready now to have this kid! My sister manages a Kiddie Kandids now- we are getting free pics YEAH!!!! Your pics look SOOO good!

I'm glad you are back!

I know one little girl who was very happy with Kylie's excellent party planning skills...:)
