Big Boy!

Emerson started pre-school last month.  I can't believe he is old enough to be going.  Yes, he is only 3 but he is more than ready to go!
He was so excited to put his backpack on and is always telling me to hurry so we "don't be late to my school."  

As soon as I dropped him off he just jumped out of the car and started walking in.  His teacher, Mrs Moss, had to tell him to say bye to his mom.  I am so glad that he loves it and is having fun but I kinda wish he would miss me....just a little, he is my first!  His teacher loves him and it sounds like he is a good boy at school, lets hope it stays that way:)

Madden gets sad almost every time we have to drop Emerson off for school.  I think he does like mommy all to himself but still misses his pal!

Mike keeps telling me we need to have just one more kid so we can get it over with and  be done.  I feel completely opposite.  These boy are demanding and they cry and whine a lot but I still love the stages they are in.  I am laughing everyday at the things they say and do and I would love to extend this difficult phase of life for a couple more years!  I don't want to just "get it over with."  I want to try and enjoy these moments as much as possible.  I know they will be gone sooner than I know it!

A few reasons to miss utah

Mike was lucky enough to have a short break at the end of August so we took advantage and went back home to visit.  
Before we moved to AZ, Emerson loved mowing the lawn with Boppa.  He got to do it a couple times while we were there, I am pretty sure Boppa loves it more than Emers:)  It is special time for the 2 of them!
I miss green, lush plants and trees.  This is my parents backyard and I miss all the fun we have out here.  Not only is it BEAUTIFUL, it is fun!
Baby Katelyn and Boppa.  Katelyn was born at the beginning of August, she is our first niece so we had to go see her!

Me and Katelyn.  I loved holding her and the boys loved kissing her.  She is a cutie!

Madden and Ezra.  They were so cute together.  Madden liked to feed EZ anything he was eating.  Right here he was feeding him an apple.  I think Ezra liked having him around....until Madden started getting possessive of toys Ezra would play with.  I can't wait for Christmas with these kiddos.  It will be so fun!

The last highlight of our trip was going to get Mani/Pedi's & lunch with my mom and sisters.  I love those girls so much and can't wait till we do it again.  The best part was how much my mom loved and enjoyed her very first pedicure!!

Dear Skype,

Thank you for making it so I can play peek-a-boo with my nephew Ezra, for allowing my kids to know their extended family and for me being able to hang out with my family at any time even though we are more than 600 miles apart.

My life is so much better with you! I LOVE YOU SKYPE!
