So I was going to take 2 year photos of my boys, but in typical photographer’s child syndrome; I hadn’t planned it yet and was blanking on ideas, and outfits.

SO I decided to keep it easy, in the backyard, unposed, playing, in their old onesies, barefooted, digging in sand.

This is typical for my boys, so I went with it.  The light was perfect yesterday morning. And my boys were so into their brand new sand toys.

And yes our sand box is an old tractor tire!!

A letter to you Dear C for your 2nd birthday,

 photo JCH_8014_zpsg7aswpdu.jpg

You bring so much light and laughter into our daily lives.   You love exploring everything, and can’t keep your hands off even the most mundane things.  You are so silly and love to run, super fast.  If something scares you, you cover your face with your hands, or bury you head in my chest.  You love to read books, and also watch TV standing super close to the screen, much to my dismay.  You love going to the park, sliding and swinging (but not too high).  You love helping me with the chickens and picking them up if one lets you.  You also love gathering the eggs (or throwing them on the ground).  Your favorite person in the world is me, and I LOVE that.  You still take a paci and you have a little stuffed hippo lovey named Pippo, he is your very favorite, you will not sleep without Pippo.  Your not the best eater, and tend to throw most everything on the ground, much to Cricket’s delight.  You don’t talk a ton, but will surprise me with what sounds like a perfectly placed full sentence.  You love riding on the 4-wheeler and daddy’s lawn mower. And any big Truck, Tractor or Garbage truck.  And you always say WOW, when they drive by.  You love animals, and our new kitten Bow-bow.  Your my cuddliest baby, and love when I rock and sing to you.  Happy 2nd Birthday to you my sweetie, we love you so much!

A letter to you my G Man,

 photo JCH_7959_zpsqjjbt6xv.jpg

You are so your own unique little guy, and your personality you could never hide.  You bring so much happiness into our lives and we can’t quit kisses those chubby cheeks.  You are very passionate about what you like and DON’T like.  You have you own way of getting what you want, and that may mean to flop of the floor face down, in silent protest.  You love your big brother’s and are always trying to keep up with them.  You love your trucks, and trailers and will spending hours just playing with them.  You can and will climb out of your crib so quietly and get into the dresser and pull out everything inside.  And when I come to find out the damage done, you will put your self in the corner and pop your own bottom, saying ouch ouch.  You like to stay close to me and aren’t much of a roamer, you are thoughtful and methodical about your actions.  You love your brand new ford truck and will drive it in circles over and over again.  You love bow-bow the kitten and usually carry him around by the neck!!  You are very selective about giving kisses and will only do it when you feel good and ready, and then you will give about 10 in a row.  You have beautiful tight curls, that mommy will never cut.  You look and act so much like your Poppy it is hilarious and scary at the same time.  You say please and thank you, usually followed with a big cheesy grin.  We love you so very much, Happy 2nd Birthday!!

Our new kitten Bow-bow he is a sweet, playful kitten.  After the death of our sweet Chloe, we so missed having a kitty around, and we were able to get him from some friends about a month ago, and he fits in so great with our family.

It happened, the babies turned 2.

AND reluctantly we had a birthday party for them, like all good parents do.

I kid, I kid.  But just an emotional momma who doesn’t like when her kids get older.  Nothing new here.

The theme was Elmo and Cookie Monster, just like big brother’s 2nd birthday.

The cake was so darn cute, I may have taken only 50 of just it.

Poor Elmo’s arms kept falling off.

Mom and Dad gave the boys these tricycles and they love them already, just have to get use to peddling them.

Cousin T who is just 4 days older was able to come, and her and C had so much fun playing.

C kept trying to hug, kiss and possibly nibble her a little.  Baby love is so sweet.

G was pretty fussy the whole day, he was fighting off ear infections and fifth’s disease. Poor baby.

I asked my SIL Christie to take some photos for me, I had so much fun looking through all the photos she took.

Curl twins 60 years apart.  G looks so much like my dad it’s funny.

Not like me, not like my husband, but like my Dad and Grandpa, my own brother’s don’t look so much like my dad.

I love how genetics work.   I wonder if he will have black hair too?

The party was a great success and so great spending time with family celebrating.

Now let’s hope this next year goes very very very slowly!!!!!

It’s been a rainy season so far, between that and the cold we’ve been cooped up in the house for way too long. It was raining yet again and ALOT so I decided to let the boys play outside, yes in the rain, yes it was about 65 degrees and yes in their undies. H […]

We took the boys camping a couple of weeks ago and they were having a carnival, so of course we had to go.  The bigs had a blast, and the littles too.  We rode rides, at carnival food and petted the animals.  A fun friday night for sure. They were tall enough to ride the […]

So the other day the babies were playing out side and I was feeding the chickens and I walked up to this scene (of course I ran for my camera). What you are looking at is not a trash can, but the dog food can. The babies managed to push their wagon over to it, […]

This past weekend DT and the bigs were working hard on cleaning my tahoe, and let me tell you it was DIRTY, inside and out.  So I asked DT what I could do for him and it didn’t take him long to say, Banana Pudding.  At first I was like, no I don’t have cool […]

This may become a series as it seems my boys are always getting into something and I am always grabbing the camera to watch it unfold.  Just a normal day in the life of 5 boys.  Yep, I included DT in the count.
