Merry Christmas

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas!!

Aren't these two so cute!! Camden couldn't wait to put on their christmas jammies, so needless to say as soon as I pulled them out this morning Camden had to put it on. Camden is super excited for Santa to visit tonight.

What a cutie bug he is! (What a big boy sitting all by himself)

My little boy is getting so big.

Me and Camden built a Gingerbread house yesterday it was pretty fun but hard get the decorating done on it. I think we did a pretty good job for it being our first house.

The finished project.

I was finally able to talk Camden into sitting on Santa's lap this year. The past few years he has wanted nothing to do with Santa. I'm thinking this year he is a little more excited. Although last week he did say "He hated Christmas and he didn't want anything for Christmas". Not sure why he was saying that. But I think after sitting on Santa's lap and seeing presents under the tree he is getting excited. Carter was actually pretty good on Santa's lap. Right after the picture was taking I think he realized he was sitting on some stang mans lap cuz then he all of a sudden looked up at Santa and started crying it was so funny.

Pumpkin Time

We decided Camen would really enjoy carving a pumpkin this year. He had fun helping carve three different pumpkins. Not sure how much fun Dad had but they turned out great and the seeds were wonderful.

Special pumpkin we carved to put on Lisa's grave.

Before the messiness begin

Camden kept saying I'm digging out it's guts.

Just having fun.

The finished product, don't my boys look so proud!!

Camden thinks it's great his pumpkins are on the front porch for all to see.

Camden's been Tagged!!!

I am so new to this blogging thing, that I'm laughing that Camden got tagged!! Thanks Trichelle!!

5 fun facts about Camden that you may not know, or maybe you do know.

1. Camden keeps me and Nate laughing every day, he is always saying the funniest thing. The other day I was putting my makeup on and he said why do you have to put your makeup on and I said so I can look pretty for daddy. I then asked If I looked pretty (**note before the makeup was on) and first he said yes and then he said well your face doesn't. Just made me laugh.

2. Camden gets a little obsessed about things. A few of them right now are Bears, Beer, and Death I'm not sure why he bets obsessed about certain things but he does, and every night we have to lie in bed and talk about things, he is such a curious little boy. So his uncle drinks beer and one day he said to me Kevin likes beer uh? And I said yes he does and Camden then said but he drinks water too and I said yes and then Camden replies he only drinks beer when he's thirsty. Cracked me up.

3. Camden loves to go camping, fishing and riding. He thinks he is old enough for his own motorcycle so good luck to us. Not only does Camden love fishing but he loves to eat the fish. I don't know many little kids who will eat fish after they have seen it caught, killed, and cooked but man my little man just loves it. Camden also loves his garden he loves to help us water it and pull the veggies. In fact I can't get him to eat much stuff but if it is out of our garden then he loves it. Don't really know many kids who loves beets and spinach. Camden also loves to hang out with his cousin and his grandparents, I've never meet a little kid who loved to sleep over at his grandparents. Camden asked daily if he can sleep over at Bunna & Papa's or at Grandpa's and Grandma's.

4. Camden loves to help out around the house. He loves to Dust and use the windex. He also loves to help me and Nate cook. He wants to pour the ingredients in, stir and do everything that we do. He is also Daddy's big helper, if Nate is out in the garage working then Camden has to be right there and trying to help.

5. Camden loves his new little brother. He just can't get enough of him. He want to be the big helper and can't wait till Carter is old enough to wrestle. He is always saying Carter loves me and I say back yes he does. Although about a month ago he did not want to hold Carter for pictures and he was saying how he wishes he wasn't the big brother. So I'm trying to explain how special it is that he is the big brother and I'm tying to list other kids who are the big brother and I happen to mention one of his friends but in saying well Trevor is a big brother but he doesn't have a little brother he has a little sister. And right then Camden shouts out I want Carter to be a girl. Made me laugh.

*People Camden is tagging

Matching Jammies!!

How cute is this!! I was able to find Matching Jammies for Camden and Carter. What hunks these two are. Unfortunelty Carter's are allready getting too small. So I had to snag this pic while I could.

It just happend that on one Sunday at Nate's parents we were getting the kids in jammies and Camden and Jack happen to put on the same outfit. I thought how cute and what a good time to take a pic of them. So funny how excited kids get when someone is wearing the same outfit as them.

Love the Garden

10/10/08: Just had to put these darling pics of the kids up. We apparently didn't see this zucchini till it was mighty big!! Camden got such a kick out of how big it was and we had to see if it was bigger then Carter. As you can see it came pretty close. Funny how I can't seem to get Camden to eat certain things, but if it comes out of the garden the he is all for eating it. *Man I'm really going to miss the garden.

Who wants to go Camping?

Camdens first fish

Camden just playing around.

Camping up Mirror Lake Highway

Camden loves to ride the sand dunes.

The guys at the dunes

A nice fish that Kevin caught. And Camden loves to eat the fish too.

As most of you guys know, my family loves to go camping. It's a good thing I learned to love it when I was a kid, cuz it's much more work as an adult. We were lucky enough to buy a trailer this year and it has made camping really fun. I don't mind sleeping in a tent but having to deal with Camden and a new born didn't sound like much fun. Needless to say we used the trailer a bunch and I can't wait for next year to use it some more.

Looks whos 3

Gotta loves these boys

Camden loved this!!

Well I decided while I'm trying to get this blog looking better I best be posting some fun pics of our family!! Camden celebrated his 3rd b-day on Sept 19. What fun we had when we went to zoo with a bunch of his aunt, uncles and cousins. It will be a trip he will remember for a long time.

Don't worry no babies were hurt during the making of this picture.

Camden loves to see how he measures up to the gorilla

Love those leaves


Just gonna take a min to attach some pics of the ride Nate, Camden and I went on last Sunday!! Right now Camden is obbessed with Bears so we made the mistake of telling him about Ephraims Grave up Logan Canyon. So we decided while the leaves were looking good and the weather was staying nice we would take a drive and then ride the fourwheelers to the grave!! Camden loved riding there and wanted to know where the bear was buried. After that point he was pretty much done and wanted to head home. Luckily I got some nice pics so we can remember our trip.
