Don't feed the ducks!

For FHE last night we took the kids to Beus Park. It has a pond with ducks and geese.....I didn't get pictures of the geese because we had to hurry away from them. They were so aggressive! We learned our lesson, don't feed the ducks! My family raised them when I was young. The ducks were fine but geese... are a whole other issue. They're horrid! Other than the geese issue, the park is very nice! There is a trail that goes all the way around the pond with lots of places to take pictures. Our camera was acting funky so these are not very good but the kids had fun.

Kael's first Birthday!

Happy Birthday to our big boy Kael! I can't believe he's one! My last little bundle of joy is getting big fast. When we sang Happy Birthday to him he clapped along with the rest of us. We had a little family party for him on Friday and then another with Grandparents the next night. I made an actual cake so no, he didn't get jipped! He is the first one of all the kids that actually tore into the cupcake without any hesitation! He loved it! I think he had a stomach ache that night though. He didn't sleep too great.
He couldn't eat it fast enough!

His five 0'clock shadow!

The wrapper is just as inticing as the cake!

I made him a Halloween cake with Tombstone sprinkles, much cuter in person!

Make a wish...

Happy Birthday sweet boy! We love you!

That boy...

Kael is seriously a crack-up every single day! It was cute, I was walking down the stairs today and he looked up at me and said "Mommy." To realize he actually knows who I am now. Something you always love to hear coming from such a little thing!

I cleaned out the pantry today with his help of course. It took way longer than it should of! Each nice new organized area turned into a new play area for him. I turn around at one point and Amara says," Mom, Kael has all our puppets!" He took all of our lunch bags which we mostly use for puppets, and spread them all over the floor! And if I try and straighten the table chairs...he's taking one and pushing it across the room to the other side.

Amara had a cup of milk that I think got knocked from her hands by him. It seriously took him one second of looking at that milk on the floor and he was swimming in it! He belly flopped on top of it and his arms and hands were doing large strokes over the milk! He was loving it!

When I put him to bed tonight I heard him still messing around. I went up to check and as I walked in the room was lit up bright! He had touched my "touch" lamp to the highest setting and had no intention of going to sleep, little stinker!

Oh well, I really can't complain. He's so cute the messes are worth cleaning up after!

Conference Weekend

Conference Weekend started out wonderful! The kids had their Bingo's and it was very enjoyable just sitting together as a family.

Cute pics!

Kael is so drawn to those drums! Whenever someone starts to play guitar Hero he's definitely not going to miss out on being a part of it!

Just the four of them
Smile baby!

This kid....

This is the little guy that keeps me running all day! I was cleaning up after him in the front room and heard him banging things in the kitchen.....those tamper resistant powdered drinks aren't immune to an 11 month old!


Yummy, yummy!

Oh man, a bath?
