0-3 AcTiViTiEs

Bridgers 0-3 program at the university puts on activites for the kids to provide fun ways for the family to enjoy each other doing "regular" activites with our kids. Obviously tantrums and fits come along on outings sometimes so it's hard to enjoy what your doing. But I had fun watching other kids throwing tantrums knowing that very well that could be my kid at any given moment, but it wasn't, he was doing GREAT!!!! Here we are bowling. He LOVED it! I loved the little bowling shoes that fit his feet! Thank you 0-3 program I will miss you much when Bridger turns 3 in January!!! Then we will be on too the next venture... Here he is chosing which ball he wants!
Cord was doing great! He even got a strike. Bumper bowling is awesome!

Here we are at High Point Gymnastics. He had a ball here too! The trampoline...

Climbing ladders...
Going down slides....

Crawling through tunnells...
And doing the zip line. He loved that most!

Here are Hudsons 4.5 month pictures. Isn't he just a cutie???? I usually love black and white or sepia pictures but this green and black is just tooooo cute!!! And the Christmas picture above is so fun, I wish I had them done before I sent out my Christmas cards. Oh well! I got these done at JC Penney's! They did great!

Christmas Nativity...

We went to a live Nativity in Nibley on Monday and absolutely froze our hiney's off! Bridger had the most fun out of us all which is good because it was an activity that his up to 3 program put together. They want to put the kids in more natural environments and play with them there. I don't know how they thought it would work with this acitivity but at least it got us to go! Here is me, Hudson and Cord standing in front of a Donkey. We blocked his head so I took a shot of the donkey below!
Bridger turned into my little pyro. He ran from garbage can to garbage can just so he could look at the fire!
Here's Cord in front of the Camel. He said Camels are the biggest animals in the world!! And I said what about Elephants? And he was like, Oh ya! Cord was actually my whiner on this trip because he kept slipping on the ice and his hands were freezing!

My 2 cuties!

These pictures were taken at my Cole Christmas party, and SANTA came! Hudson got a picture on Santas lap. This guy is the closest thing to real Santa, that is a true and genuine beard he has going there! And he keeps it all year round!

Bridger of course wouldn't go near Santa. I told Santa he doesn't like people and all I want is a picture even if he's kicking and screaming. And he proceeds to talk to him like Bridger would understand every word he was saying. I wanted to pass a note to him and say, He's Autistic, quit trying! I get pretty frustrated going to family get togethers and going out in public because Bridger really hasn't gotten any better in that regard. Won't go to anyone but me or Chris and if he's honory, the whole party knows it. So we usually end up leaving and miss half the fun. I know, Boo, Hoo, Karie. I'm sorry, sometimes I need to vent even though I sure love my Bridger. He's just my challenge in life and sometimes I feel sorry for myself when i shouldn't because he also brings a lot of joy to our family. Chris and I just look at each and smile because he can be so darn cute sometimes.
Here's Cord soaking it all up. He asked Santa for a sparks scooter. He's asked Santa twice for that now and so far it hasn't made it into Santas bag. Hopefully he won't be too dissapointed!

Give Thanks...

My sister hosted THanksgiving dinner at her house this year and she did a GREAT job. I think her table set up and decorations were just as important to her as her food, and it LOOKED and TASTED great! Note to self: Don't ever wear that pink vest again because you look 6 months pregnant! Brenda holding my cute Hudson
And me and my hubby and Hudson. For some reason I decided not to take pictures of my other boys on Thanksgiving Day!?!?!?

Happy Birthday Mom

Dear Mom, In all these years of you being my mom, I can't think of one incident where you didn't put your kids first. You have been there for me through thick, thin, fun times, sad times, crazy times and good times. I love you with all my heart and I'm so proud to call you my Mother, and for my kids to call you their Grandma...

Back to training wheels...

So Cord has turned into a dirt bike Extremist! His uncle Justin and uncle Ryan race dirt bikes every year and his cousins are into it, so he got into it! First he got his helmet for his birthday and then we got to borrow his cousins dirt bike has training wheels on it. He LOVES it! It's all he could talk about for weeks. "Mom, do you love my new dirt bike?" "Mom, Do you love it when I ride my new dirt bike?". Non stop! But it's cute! And we have the perfect dirt hill across the street from our house for him to ride on it.

So I got my new digital software from stampn it up and wanted to throw something together and post it to see how easy or hard it was. It was kind of fun and I'm excited to play around with it and possibly do my own Christmas cards or something. These are just old pictures of Hudson but it's all I really had!

Yeah ponies!

About a month ago We took the boys to go ride ponies at one of Chris's friends house. Cord absolutely LOVES riding horses or ponies. Bridger wouldn't have anything to do with them so I don't have a cute picture of him... Well I guess you can see Bridger on Chris's shoulders!

I know these pictures have red eye majorly but I still wanted to post them because they are so darn cute. I'm getting a new photo shop program through stampn up that I'm excited to start using!

Happy Birthday Amy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so first of all I have to tell Amy she's getting off waaaaaay easy on the picture footage because all of my junior high and high school pictures are still at my parents house! So these oldies will have to do. But second of all and most important, I have to tell Amy HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and I love you tons!!!! She did this awesome post for me on my birthday, so I of course I had to do the same for her! Amy has been one of my best friends since 9th grade! We did everything together from Cheerleading, and basketball, to drill team and more. Amy is absolutely hilarious in every sense. She could make anyone laugh with her home-made dances, and she would always be there for a shoulder to cry on! I'm soooo greatful that although we live an hour away from each other we still make the effort to keep our friendship alive and kicking because I wouldn't know what I would do without her!Now this picture was our 4 pack. We used to do everything together! Me, Mariesa, Andrea and Amy in the front! We were sure the crazy bunch! These memories will last forever! Happy Birthday Amy, I hope you have the best day ever!

What a Blessing...

Sunday we blessed Hudson and it was such a great day! We had sooo many family and friends come and support us on this special day, Thank you! The blanket I am holding was made by Chris's mom, and his outfilt is a tad small because we blessed him a lot later than when we blessed Bridger.

This is as close to a family shot that we could get, Bridger was NOT into taking pictures at the moment. My mom, Grandma, Sister Brenda and Me.Chris's Dad holding Hudson.

As much as I wanted a girl, I am soooo blessed to have my sweet Hudson. He is seriously the best baby of the 3 boys. He sleeps great, eats great, and doesn't cry much! We love him tons!

Pin the nose on the pumpkin...
And painting their own personal pumkins....
And the family party...
We got him this dirt bike helmet that he has been fantasizing about forever! He always wears Chris's snowmobilling helmet around the house that drowns him so we got him his own. He LOVES it!Blowing out the candles....
Cord and his cute cousin Avery!

Cord is a special part of our family! He is the life of the party, as well as the "ruckus" of the party! He is such an outgoing, little boy with a BIG heart! He loves his baby brother Hudson and gives him hugs and kisses, and makes sure that he is happy when he fusses. He plays with Bridger around the house and helps me with what ever I need. We love you "BUBBA"
