Holy Cow Time Flies!!

Ok so here are some pictures to catch up from the last time i posted. Sorry there is a lot, but what ya gonna do?

The video at the end is Ethan on Easter morning. I promise the story he tells is not true! It's mainly for the grandparents but you are more than welcome to watch it. (It is just about 8 minutes long)

Ethan's pumpkin

He got these from Daycare before Christmas and was so excited!

Mommy & Ethan with our snuggies we got for Christmas. (actually mine is a reverse snuggie that zips up the front)

Aunt Jody gave this outfit to Ethan for Christmas!! He was the most handsome little sunbeam!! I almost cried.

I can't even remember what was on his face but this is how the boy rolls.

Ok here is the video the funny part is in the beginning so if you don't want to watch it all at least you don't have to wait until the end. Sorry it is so dark. :(

The Big 3!

Well my baby Ethan is no longer a baby. Ethan turned 3 on Aug. 16th. I can't believe it has been that long. Man where has the time gone. Ethan wanted a "kachow" cake which is what he calls Lightning McQueen from the movie Cars. So luckily my friend Kat had the cake pan already so I didn't have to buy it. (thanks again) I had the vision of making the lightning mcqueen cake look like it was driving down a road, since there were going to be about 18 people there I wanted to make sure I had enough cake. However, my brain was not functioning right and I could not figure out how to make the cake look like what I was invisioning. Sooooooooo I enlisted the help of our creative friend Paul Henderson. He helped me cut the cake to make it look like the pics below while still using as much cake as possible. (I know Paul you dont think you helped that much but you did). Same goes for Adam, he helped me move the cake and flip the cake and keep my sanity while doing it. A BIG THANKS TO THE BOTH OF YOU!! I REALLY APPRECIATED IT AND THE CAKE TURNED OUT PRETTY AWESOME IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF.

Thank for all the presents. Ethan is definately very loved.

DISCLAIMER: I promise Ili'Kea was not hurt in any way. :) She was laughing in the beginning but by the time we got the camera this is what was left. (such a little firecracker)

Grandma Jan & Grandpa Tedd

My parents came and visited us in July. Ethan was in heaven! He got to help papa Tedd with all the projects he was doing for me and Adam while we were at work. Ethan had a sinus infection and a horrible cough so we kept him home from daycare. Thank heaven for my mom cause she watched him all week so i could still go to work. My parents got Ethan a toolbelt and wheelbarrow for his birthday but my mom couldn't wait to give it to him. They came in handy with helping Papa Tedd, or so I am told. Apparently he was a perfect child for my parents. (hmmm) Anyway here are some pics of the work and the after pictures:

This is what happens when you leave an art major to entertain a 3 yr old. (kept him busy for days)
Ethan helping mommy paint the wall where my dad took out a built in shelf and patched the wall.

Thanks dad it looks so nice without that shelf!!!

We had my dad take out the chain link fence that just went across the front of the lawn and didn't connect to anything. The yard looks so much bigger now.

Ethan swinging on the fence before it was all taken out. Is it too early for gymnastics?

The 3 boys playing mario kart, (sorry grandpa didn't mean to cut you out.)

My wonderful parents! Then after my parents left Paul came and put in recessed lighting in our living room. Our house was built in the 1950's and apparently back then they didn't believe in putting lights in the living rooms. All the houses in our neighborhood are that way. Silly builders!

You should have seen the amount of insulation falling from the ceiling. I thought Adam was going to have an attack because of how dirty the floor was getting. Quite funny!

4th & 24th of July

We had a good 4th and 24th of July, which here in Utah are both holidays. So we get to do fireworks twice in one month. on the 4th we had Jeremy, Connie, Ashton and Cade Warath, Marlene & Shirley and Aunt Jody over for fireworks. The kids loved watching Adam & Jeremy light the fireworks. Here are some pics:

The mature adults in charge of lighting the fireworks.
