Pre-Halloween Pictures

Halloween 2009
I love Landon's face in this picture.

And we can't forget our cute little pumpkin.

Jog-a-thon 2009

Brooklyn ran in her first school Jog-a-thon!!!
Brooklyn and her friend Trinity
Get ready... set... GO!!!

The memories of my own Jog-a-thon came back when I was out there helping count the little runners for Brooklyn's kindergarten class.
Her determined face the first couple of laps around.

Getting a little tired...
She was pretty serious about winning this thing and was the first one around every time, until she got to about her 12 lap and then she was about tuckered out. She was getting lots of drinks and even took Landon around.
Brooklyn had a blast and was awesome!!!

Fall is here!!!

Fall is here in California and we are loving the weather!!! It is a bit chilly in the morning and then it warms up to about 70-75 in the afternoon, perfect weather. (sorry to those of you in colder places)

We carved our pumpkins the other night with Uncle Ryan and Aunt Sara, my brother and sister. Brooklyn had a blast gutting the pumpkins, but Landon would have nothing to do with it. He wouldn't even touch the insides of the pumpkin, he said it was too yucky... what a sissy boy. We will get him to do it next year when Christian is with us.
Landon looks mad in this picture because we were making him touch the pumpkin "guts."

Then today we played in the leaves
Brooklyn and Landon threw the leaves and pretended it was snowing...
And then decided to throw them at Mom and Claire...
And Claire slept right through the whole thing, sweet baby girl!

Pictures of an Angel...

I took some pictures of Claire for her baby announcement and here are some of the ones that turned out.
I am not a photographer, but I think these turned out great!
(erica, we wish you lived closer)

It almost looks like she is smiling in this one!

This one was for Dad...xoxo

2 Weeks Old

Claire had her 2 week check up and she is looking good as ever! Claire weighed in at 7lbs 6oz and 20 inches long. That is 4 ounces more than her birth weight and a half an inch longer. She is still a little peanut but my girls tend to be tall and skinny. Not like Landon he was short and round!
Claire is more alert and keeps her eyes open more, which we LOVE! Every time Landon sees Claire with her eyes open he runs over and says " OH, she opened her baby eyes!" and gives her a kiss. This girl gets a lot of kisses and is very loved.

Claire showing off her tongue again... watch out boys, this one is going to be a good kisser!

Before Dad left we had to get a picture with everyone. It was hard to get everyone together, or in nice clothes, but we will take what we can get. So PJ's and all here we are.
I can't believe how small Claire looks in this picture. Her head next to Landon's huge noggin'. We are a family of 5, wow that is pretty crazy. I am still adjusting to the fact that I have 3 kids, it is hard to say sometimes. But I love it and they are wonderful!

Cute kids and cupcakes

You know it is going to be a good day when you start out with a little of this!!!
Three beautiful kids, all happy, healthy and full of LOVE!

We can't get enough of this little girl...

The weather around here has finally cooled off and that means yummy fall treats, like pumpkin cupcakes, YUM-O. Two little helpers to make them taste even better.
