Drive, Drive, Drive

Another busy week driving kids to school and stuff. We took a drive to Rocky Mountain National Park on Friday, and saw some of the leaves changing. We took a little hike with the kids, and my back was killing me after 5 min. Then we were able to see a whole heard of Elk, and heard the male elk do there call. The kids thought it was really interesting and fun to be really close to the elk. Brandon kept calling them horses and would then say "Niegh" (how ever you spell that). It was really funny.


Well we are counting down the days. As of yesterday we have one more month until we have the baby. I CAN NOT WAIT!!! I am totally ready to wash everything and set everything up, but i guess it is still a bit to early. Everything will get dusty by then. So let's all pray that I might go a bit early, since I am usually not that lucky.

Well not to much is going on right now, but I thought I would post a few funny things that the kids said or did the other day:

The other night we went out to parker and on our way home we stopped at Carl's Jr. and got the kids some star nuggets. As soon as Jeff handed Brandon the nugget he started to sing twinkle little star. It was the cutest thing ever.

Then yesterday, we were on our way to go the store and out of the blue Ashlie says " Mom if you give us 2 cookies, that makes Jesus Happy" I just had to laugh, and told her I'm sure it does.

More brandon

Brandon is such a little talker these days, and is getting better everyday. When we are out driving he is so observant to everything and starts naming everything!!
Here are a few things he say's EVERY time we see it.

"McDondalds" ( McDonalds) Basically any McDonalds we drive by
"OOO Water" Every time we see a fountain, a sprinkler, anything with water.
" Cheese" Chucke Cheeses
"GO" When the light turns green
" OOO Doggy, woof woof"
He also shows his Stuffed Kitty EVERYTHING.  " See kitty"
He calls pancakes "cuppycakes" don't ask me where he got that one

Today in the car, he said "Hugs" and then I looked in the mirror and he was having his kitty give him hugs, with the kitty arms around his neck. It was sooooooo cute. 

It's so fun, and not so fun at times that he can communicate with us more each day, and if I don't write these things down, then I will never remember them. Maybe I will add to the list as each day, as I remember more. 

Bye Bye Paci

Brandon has officially said good bye to his pacifier.  About 2 night ago I just decided to try to put him to bed without it, and he didn't even complain. So the next day, they were out of sight out of mind, and he has not asked for it since. That was easier than I though it would be. I think it's harder on me than on him, because that means my little baby is growing up. Good thing there is one more on the way=) This next one will be the hardest though, because I know it's my last one and he will be my baby FOREVER!!

More Birthday

On Saturday Matthew had a birthday party with his friends. This year we had it at a gymnastics place where Ashlie took classes. It was actually pretty fun, and the kids had a great time. They get an hour of fun instructional play including bounce houses, rope swinging, jumping in the big foam pit, trampoline, climbing the big net, tonz of stuff. Then we go and to cake and presents for a half an hour, and then another half hour of fun on the bouncy stuff and the big blow up slide. The best part is, I don't have to entertain or clean up. It was great. And I know they had a great time. ( Sorry about the picture overload)!!!

B-Day pictures

Matthew Turnes 5 !!!

My handsome boy!

Matthew's Birthday was actually on the 28th of August, so I am a little late. He had such a fun birthday this year, and I'm learning it gets harder because they actually know what they want. I can't believe it has been five years already and that he used to look like this cute little baby.

At 5 years old you weighed 35.5 lbs = 14th%tile
you were 40 inches = 13th%tile

Things you like and enjoy:

Transformers, Spiderman, Batman, helicopters, love to ride your bike, rollerblade, swimming, grandma's and grandpa's, the zoo and other museum's.

You love to play Soccer and Baseball. Jumping on the trampoline and doing all sorts of crazy flips. You love to tell time and read books. You are really enjoying Kindergarten and learning to read words. You are enjoying swimming a lot more and learning to really swim underwater for a long time.

On Matthew's Birthday he brought a treat to share with his class and they sang happy Birthday to him, which he thought was pretty cool, and then he chose to go to a park over McDonalds for lunch. He got to open a few presents there and loved it of course. He got a transformer from his Aunt Emily and then he got a Buzz light Year Bow and Arrow which he loves.
Then later that day after Jeff got off work and headed down to Colorado Springs for a dinner and party with Jeff's family. We had yummy steak and then partied the night away until 9:00. He really had a great birthday, so thank you to ALL for your wonderful gifts and calls.
