   So our little boys are getting teeth. I was really scared at first cause I thought that as soon as they did- no more nursing. But they actually haven't even tried biting yet. they did more of that before they had teeth.    Kason started getting his bottom right tooth about a week ago. A few days later Treyden started getting his bottom Left tooth. ( I am thinking there is a pattern here. Treyden has a cowlick on the right side, and Kason now has a sort of cowlick on the right, just a little different looking. Maybe one will be left handed and one right handed?). Now they have all four( two top and two bottom) teeth coming at about the same time. Crazy. Kason has all his poked through now and Treyden is waiting on one top and one bottom to actually poke through all the way. Crazy. They have been doing well though, a little cranky especially at nap time but not as bad as I thought it would be. Glad they are getting out of the way quickly.
   We had fun in Snowflake for Christmas weekend and Christmas day. Eden loved it and we ended up having a White Christmas! I will post more about Christmas after we have it again with my family and again with Jay's siblings the first of January. Three Christmas'. Fun Fun.

Family Picture Time

We went to my cousin Hayley's house one afternoon with my family and we took a bunch of pictures. It was a lot of fun and I think they turned out great. Hayley did a good job. We took them behind her house in the Pecan groves in Queen Creek. The kids did really good considering we were taking pics for aobut an hour with our little family and my parents and siblings as well. We had a good time. Now I just need to print a bunch, send them to family and put some uo on my walls! 
We are excited for the Christmas season. We have been to the Temple lights and will go agaib this week. Eden loves it. She doesn't quite understand Santa Clause but she understands that its Jesus' Birthday and that makes her happy. She is learning a lot in nursery and came home one day and this was our conversation:
E: Mom I want to talk to you
Me: Ok what do you wnat to talk about?
E: About Joseph Smith and Jesus and God.
Me: Did you learn about them in nursery
E: Yeah. And Joseph Smith got hurt and got medicine and God and Jesus and the Gospel and He loves us!( At this point she has a huge grin on her face)
It was pretty cute. Now whenever she needs to go take a nap she tries to stall and talk to me again about God and Jesus and Joseph Smith. I think it was because I gave her my undivided attention cause I was very impressed she remembered all that.                                                                                      
The boys are doing well. They are close to crawling, just army crawling everywhere and picking everything up and putting it in their mouths. The other day I found a long plastic piece from Edens toys in Kasons diaper. That must have been very uncomfortable. We have to watch everything that gets dropped on the floor. Their individuale personalities are coming out more. Kason: Is a go-getter. He wants something, he finds a way to get it. He even crawls over things now. He has a low whine and grunt when he is sad or tired. He will almost yell at me when he wants my attention or more food. He is the squeeky wheel so to say and lets you know it. He is very ticklish and loves to laugh, play and explore. Has a cute " Grandpa Russell face", as Jay calles it. He is getting a tooth soon. And likes to do the plank.
Treyden: Has a high squeel and whine. He scruntches his nose and makes funny sounds. Very curious and plays with Kasons face. He will grab your face with both hands and give"Kisses". He is usually a little more patient when feeding a little baby food, but he likes it now. He has a huge grin and loves to jump.

Ok so I just posted about 4 or 5 videos. Hope you can view them all. This is the one with them fighting over an apple. Too funny. I posted this one on Facebook too. Love it!
My sister Breanna got them laughing good.
Eden was making Kason laugh so hard, it was cute. I will try to get on up of Treyden.

Determined Kason

This is Kason trying so hard to get the little mobile . He even made the swing stop swinging. He slid down as far as he could and didn't give up til he grabbed it.

Chubby babies

I LOVE chubby babies, and I really love to kiss them all over! Anyway I forgot to say how the boys are growing. They had an appt this week and are exactly the same. Same head width, same length- 28 in, and same weight- 18.5lbs! Crazy. They sure are getting heavy to lug around.

We did just go measure Eden cause she wanted a turn and she is just under 3 ft. I think she will be tall too. Fun fun.

Six months already

Its already November wow. Sorry I haven't posted in a little while. Well, the kids are doing great. The boys are scooting some and Kason gets on all fours for a little while then falls back down. Treyden is not far behind. I am sure they will be crawling soon. Eden loves playing with them more as they will interact and laugh at things she does. They think they know what real food is and always try to grab it. I will post a video of them sucking on an apple core and fighting over it next. It was funny.
We are excited for cooler weather and the holidays that are just around the corner. Eden said something funny the other day. Jay was watching the kids as and I was leaving to go work out. Whenever someone leaves Eden asks for hugs and kisses. I had given them to her already a few minutes before, so I just left and said bye. She opened the front door and watched me leave and just stood there as I waved to her. Well, a few minutes later Jay called me and relayed this conversation
Eden: Mom left!
Jay: Yeah you said bye already
Eden: I can't believe it! She didn't give me hugs and kisses!
Jay: Yes she did. You can have some more though when she gets back ok.
Eden: Yea I guess
These are some pictures we took one day just for fun. Hopefully soon we will get some good family pictures and get all the kids smiling. I need some more to put on my wall.

Growing growing

My kids are growing fast. I guess that's how it always is. I sure love watching them grow though and learn new things. Its lots of fun.

These smiles brighten my day!

They seem to always have a hand in their mouth or hold both their feet. Too cute. 

Typical day. This is nap time and I get them to sleep at the same time. Mostly.

5 Months Old! 

Eden Loves her brothers.

They love hair!

Eden can count to 13 or so, she can sing all her ABC's, she has lots of songs memorized, ok maybe like six. She can name all the basic colors and shapes. And she knows quite a bit of animals. She loves blocks and playing puzzles and reading stories. She loves watching her favorite shows too. She wants to do things all by herself and tells me constantly. She is very polite and almost always says "thanks mom" for anything I do for her, and if she forgets then a simple reminder does the trick. 
Kason started turning on his stomach and rolling both ways first, but Treyden was not far behind. They both are really trying to scoot ad get somewhere, but they haven't quite got it down yet. Very soon though. They are getting better at grabbing things and of course putting it straight to their mouth. They blow bubbles and babble a lot. They love to smile and they are very ticklish. Kason loves a little bit of rice cereal once a day, but Treyden always gives me a disgusted face and spits it out. I am still nursing them and that is going good for now. We will see how long that lasts, trying to keep up with them is no easy task.

Fun with Grandma Kristi and Grandpa Mike

Well, I say fun with Grandma Kristi and Grandpa Mike, but I didn't get picture with them:( Sorry I didn't bring my camera out like I should have. And actually most of these were taken by Eden. I enjoyed having some great help while Jay was gone to Indiana for some job training for 2 weeks. It was nice to have a change of scenery besides my front living room:) and the weather was good. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!


Cute hair by grandma.

Eden had fun following Kimmy around with the camera

Olivia and the boys

Eden loved playing with Uncle Gavin

Found some stickers to play with
