Our new ride

Yep after much talking and finally looking at all our options we finally got our selves in a possition that we could look into getting a new van!!! We talked with the bank yesterday morning and by lunch time they had us approved and we were off to the dealership to check out our choices. They had 2 vans and both were nice. We chose the 05 Chrylser Town and Country touring!! Its LOADED and we got a heck of a deal and ended up getting it less then what we were thinking!! Its got everything except the built in DVD player and we aren't to worried because we already had a portable one that we will just move to the van!! Even leather seats and the power lift gate as well as both sliding doors are power!!! I could go on and on, on how nice it is, but iHere are some pictures of our new to us van!!!

Last night we went for a walk but didn't end up very far. Our neighbors just a few houses down were out playing so we stopped by to say hi and by some odd luck Makena thought it would be fun to wear her swimming suit that day. Anywho the kids were out playing in there little swimming pool and slip-in-slide and Makena and Tanner wasted no time joining in. So we just took off her undies and shorts she had over her suit and stripped Tanner down to his diaper they had so much fun and by the time we left they were frozen and ready to get warm. (we went for our walk around 7 pm). Well Makena needed to use the bathroom so we ran home so she could and I grabed the camera and towels. Here is there fun in the water.

I can't wait till we head to NY so spend some time with Grandma and Grandpa at the beach!!! Its going to lots of fun!

Need I say more!?!?

Hair do

I finally convinced Makena to let me do her hair and it was so stinkin cute and this is the ONLY picture I had a chance to take before she took them out. They lasted maybe 30 minuets, if that, I plan on doing it again and i'll take more pictures........

Sleeping habits

My kids have the weirdest places they like to sleep. Well Tanner must have been really comfy to sleeping like this because he stayed this way for quite some time.......

And this is how I found Makena!! All curled up in the rocking chair!

Something fun

Well I have realised that its been quite a while since I last posted anything. I feel like I have nothing to blog about and then was going through the pictures on my camera and realised that I had tons to blog about so I'll post a few pics and story's that go along with them.

Tanner found one of Makena's chap sticks and this was his way of putting it on. It was ALL over his face and you can see even in his eyelashes. It was a pain to get off and most of it had to kinda wear off, plus it was sparkly so he had this his shimmer to him.

TJ had brought in his coats that he wears in the coolers at work so we could have some space in the trunk to put grocery's and Makena thought they were the coolest things ever, As you can tell they drowned her but she LOVED every minuet of playing in them.

One day at storytime they had the headstart group come to the library and "Clifford" was the theme, They watched a clifford movie and then Clifford himself come to visit the kids. It was so fun and Makena loved it but Tanner not so much.

Makena and Clifford
This is the only way I could get Tanner to get a picture with Clifford.
Here is Makena sitting with the group of kids I love her expression and she was so good that it gives me high hopes on how she will do when she gets to pre-k
This is where Tanner was most of the time. He wanted nothing to do with clifford.

Of all the things Tanner could find to eat this was his choice, he was having so much fun eating butter, I don't know what it is but both of my kids find butter yummy even when its right out of the container or a stick. All I can think is YUCK, at least he was happy right?!?

This video was taken during dinner which we had before the butter eating. He was so tired and then got a second wind when we got him out of his chair. Yes we were having a picnic in our front room that night..
And through all they do and all the hitting and screaming they do I love to see them being so loving to each other. They show a love for each other that only siblings have. They are to peas in a pod.
