Lunch time closeups :-)

I can't seem to ever get them to sit down and take a pic so I thought I'd try during lunch and it actually worked. They are getting so big and fun and funny :-)

A Conversation with Caleb...

Today before naptime, Caleb and I layed on the couch and talked :-) I started asking him his favorite things and this is what he said...

Mom: What's your favorite color?
Caleb: (the last month it's been yellow so I was suprised!)

Caleb: Mom, what's your favorite color?
Mom: My favorite color is green.
Caleb: Ah yeah...what's Adrienne's favorite color?
Mom: I don't know, I think she's too young to have a favorite color yet.

Mom: What's your favorite train?
Caleb: Um....Thomas and Henry.

Mom: What's your favorite kind of car?
Caleb: This one (as he holds of a '32 Ford!!)

Mom: What's your favorite show?
Caleb: Um..........Elmo.

Mom: What's your favorite movie?
Caleb: Ummm I like my Halloween movie.

Mom: Whose your favorite person?
Caleb: Um...I don't know.

Mom: What's your favorite fruit?
Caleb: Um......Strawberries.

Mom: Whose your favorite friend?
Caleb: Um...I don't's me.

That made me laugh so hard. That's typical him, he definitely loves being alone to read and play. Thought you'd enjoy a little laugh for today!

We spent last week up in Sioux City as TJ was in California for work. I was sick most of the time :-( but the kids had a blast and were quite the characters. Caleb loved getting to read with Grandma and Adrienne loved all the extra people to wrestle with :-) Adrienne found her stage at Grandma and Grandpa's house. She sits on the fireplace and just talks and sings and yells. It's quite comical! She's quite the entertainer. She learned her first phrase "Oh, man!" It's absolutely hilarious! Unfortunately, I think she got it from me. She likes to say puppy, mom mom, dad dat, woof, bye bye, wow, papa, nana :-) We were starting to wonder if she was ever going to say anything, she's definitely taking longer than Caleb to spit them out! Caleb on the other hand is a non-stop talker. He's really starting to understand so many things. His favorite thing to say is "Oh that will be great!" or "Oh that will be awesome!" He's learning songs so easily and singing any words to any tune of a song, it's pretty incredible. He always wants to know what we are doing next :-) Which just makes me laugh! He's also getting really tall and skinny. I really honestly never thought I'd say that haha! He's so darn cute! The picture above is from last week at Grandma and Grandpa's. Grandpa took a few shots of the kids and of course they had to see them. I thought it was so cut they both sat there for like 5 minutes(that's a REALLY long time for Adrienne!) and looked at pictures!

Tonight Shelley was over and said to Caleb "Are you sure?" and Caleb goes "I'm positive!". HA! I will have to take credit for that one as I say that all the time! He's getting so old!

We'll be getting out family pics taken next weekend (praying for a bit of good weather and sun!) and I'll get those posted up here. It's been so long since we've had pictures taken, even just of the kids. I know that's sad considering I'm a photographer but taking your own children's pictures is such a challenge.

The kids and I will be going to PE101 tomorrow and I'm bringing my camera for the first time. Can't wait to share pictures of all the fun!

Future Huskers :-)

Last Saturday we had Alex over so his mommy and daddy could go to the Nebraska game. He just happened to show up with a jersey on and I couldn't resist getting a pic of them together. Accept try getting a picture of three children under 2 1/2 ?!?! Yeah not so easy...this is the best one, blurry and all. I love all their faces and especially Adrienne's side pony tail and the fact that she's 4 months younger than Alex, I know you would have never guessed, my little chunker! Every time I look at it, something else catches my eye and makes me die laughing!! Ah I love these kiddies!

Birthday girls :-)

I was lucky enough to meet a great friend almost a year ago named Amy. We met through our Omaha Mom and Kids meetup group and found out the first meeting that our daughters were born on the exact same day only a couple hours apart. This is Natalie, who is one of the most happy go luck little girls you'll ever meet and then there's Miss Adrienne who looks utterly confused :-( Hopefully someday they will be good friends :-) Amy just emailed me this so I had to post! Such cuties!

Robinson Boys

One of my dearest friends Rhonda was in town for a few weeks from Nevada and we were so blessed to get to spend so much time together. The kids had so much fun, especially Wyatt and Caleb :-) How cute are they!!!Wyatt giving Caleb lovings :-)

Choo-Choo & Rah-Rah

Here are my little Halloweenies...Husker Cheerleader and Thomas the Tank Engine. Unfortunately we didn't have the best day, the neighbors had a new roof put on so that meant no nappies for my kids and boy did that not help. We did have playgroup in the morning and trick-or-treating at TJ's work. Caleb was on mission that's for sure!! They were both sooo cute! Hopefully get some more formal pics of them up later :-)

Thuc & Jen's Wedding- Omaha 10/25/08

Last Friday and Saturday we attended Thuc & Jen's wedding festivities. Such a great time!! Here's me playing around as we rushed to the church...almost late :-(

Their favors...REAL CHOPSTICKS!! Let's just say TJ about cried when he saw these and you should see how many we have in our silverward drawer. He uses them everyday haha!
