Bret is! This is his Fall Semester of 101 Spanish students. If I didn't know which one was the teacher, I wouldn't have guessed Bret.

Family Photos!

Our friend in our ward here does photography and is also taking Spanish. Bret is tutoring him for free and he came and took family pics of us! I was SO happy about the swap. The pictures turned out great too. He took around 200 photos and burned a cd with them all on it. Kade was also fairly comfortable with him so he got some good ones in too. We couldn't have gotten such great photos (and selection of photos), I believe, if we had gone to Walmart and done it, so I was thrilled. Since there are so many good ones to choose from, I think I might go overboard on how many I post. Ohwell! I like to look at my kids!








I actually really liked this family one, but if we print it in a bigger size, the kids are a bit blurry

The picture taking was put on hold due to this little girl...


Our friend made a funny face, but the affect it had on Kade was not what he expected....

Getting sick of all the pictures....


I LOVE this one








All done!

Spanish Speaker and Superwoman

KADE
Kade is a funny boy. He loves it when Bret reads to him in Spanish. We have a few Spanish books and Kade calls them all the same thing. He says "meeko-meeko." "Dad, read meeko-meeko peas?"(oh and he says it really fast) He's heard Spanish in a few other things and he shouts out meeko-meeko! I don't know how he decided that was the name for Spanish! We think he is a funny boy.

MAGGIE
Maggie likes to roll from her belly to her back. She doesn't like being on her belly but she likes to roll there. It's hard to roll back. I look at her on her belly and wonder if she thinks she is superwoman from the way she holds her hands and legs out and up.

Thanksgiving Vacation

We went to my parent's house for the week. It went by too fast. We had a great time and Kade absolutely loved it. When I say love it-I mean that he was so hyper happy about being there he woke up at 5:15-6:00 am practically the whole time we were there. He woke up ready to play. It wasn't really a problem for Bret and I actually. Kade slept in a different part of the house in the same room as Oli and when he woke up so early Oli gave him to my parents who then layed with him until they were sure he would never stop talking until they got up. I was glad it was them and not me. Thanks! He was so loud and happy the whole time. It was great to see him loving it there and having so much fun with Levi, Oli, Maren, and my parents. My cousin Avery was there also and he warmed up to her by the end of the visit.

Levi and my Dad were chopping wood and Kade went outside and helped out. He is afraid of their dog and wouldn't leave my dad's lap for a while, but my dad made him get down after a while and help. He was funny to watch.


Kade got to ride on a horse while we were there and he was more brave than I thought he would be! He liked it! We took a pic of it on Maren's camera and I have yet to get it from her...


We were trying to get Levi to smile without being a goon. I don't believe he knows how. Kade got TONS of rides on the 4-wheeler. He loved that too. He would laugh and yell the whole ride.
Maggie made a new friend-cousin Avery!This girl likes her feet! It's funny how flexible babies are. She can even suck on them if she tries hard enough.

This is my parents right before their ride on my dad's motorcycle to the grocery store to get hot dog buns. My mom looked really funny. She didn't seem to care though. Kade loves his sissy. He likes to shower her with anything he can find when she is on the ground. Here he has all the blankets off his bed, a bunch of toys, and a bunch of books all for her pleasure. He is pretty proud of himself. Sometimes I think she feels too showered.
