way over due post

I usually post 2 to 3 times a week. It has now been about 2 weeks!! Where has my time gone? I don't have the slightest idea. This is all I could think of..............
James:

Well, he has been working a lot of over time and when he finally had some time off we completely shut out the world and caught up on "first 48" and "Ghost hunters". James also got a new calling.......lol.........in scouts.......Scout Committee Secretary?! or something along those lines. I think he was secretly excited for this calling. Look at his face when he modeled his new uniform, he loves it. Also something very exciting, James and his whole family battle with high cholesterol. He always gets the third degree during his yearly checkups at work, and this year?? He lowered his number from 329 to 258 all on his own without meds and just by healthy eating and exercise....I am so proud of him and the hard work he puts in to making sure he is healthy not only for himself but for his family.

Isn't he so sexy? If only they were shorts :)

Me:

Now that school is back in we are back to having our presidency meetings and I am so pumped up to start planning my first Super Saturday! The ideas are just rolling around in my head :) The past few weeks I have been making a lot of cookies and treats that I will be sharing the recipes shortly. I have also been enjoying playing with the boys and cleaning....I can't really say I have been enjoying cleaning, but I do enjoy the end result! (which never never ever last for long)

Me Nolan and Gabe right before bed
Gabe:

He has been enjoying a lot of things lately. He has been spending a lot of time with the neighbor boy who he gets a long with really well. He has announced recently that he is going to be a super hero when he gets older. When I asked him why he chose that he said while shrugging..."well....I already know all of the super hero moves" and then decided to show me all of his "moves". Gabe also started school! He was so ready to get back to school. He is now at Kristen's school (Wishing Well Preschool) It is the cutest set up and he already knew some of the kids that go there from church. He came home and wouldn't stop talking about everything he learned. Especially telling us that he learned about the S word...........I automatically said "what do you mean you learned about the S word?!" but quickly realized he meant words that start with S :) He is in for a wonderful year of growth!

Here are the pictures from the first day. He is demonstrating his "moves"

And this one is when I got to the school and he was getting out of the car. I love the "please leave me alone" look he is giving me

Nolan:

Oh Nolan. What a sweet boy he is. I love him so much. I am so glad to say that he finally gave us about 4 days of no fits and no timeouts! It was out of no where and I savoured every minute of it. It was so much easier to talk to him and he was actually HAPPY. He goes a lot of days just acting frustrated. I am glad to see things maybe getting a little easier for him. He is enjoying finally getting to participate with Gabe and James during the wrestling matches. He asks in the cutest way. He says "wees weesle! wees weesle!" and then jumps right on James' back. He also feels now that he has to help with EVERYTHING, like putting away clothes, putting away the silverware, vacuum, sweep...you name it, he has to have a hand at getting it done.

**Soon to come....a whole lot of tasty tasty recipes!!**

Gabe has some really cool moves! He is on his way to becoming an awesome super hero!

The S word thing cracked me up! You know that B words and F words are just around the corner, don't you? ;)

Now I know where your boys get their happy face. It looks JUST like the look on James' face while wearing the scout uniform! Fun calling for him!

Oh my goodness, I ADORE your little Gabe. He is seriously one of the funniest kids I know. Jake is so happy that they are in preschool together. We need to have Gabe come over and play with Jake. I call ya.

Nolan is so sweet. I'm impressed that he wants to help so much. KEEP THAT GOING!!! How is he liking his mornings at home with mom while Gabe is at school?

Kate-those pictures are so beautiful...and you know that the joyfulness that those boys bring to everyone's lives mirrors the joyfulness that you and James bring to theirs. They are just "living what they learn."

SO now when we come over instead of Gabe modeling his clothes for us, will James be taking that over?? Glad Gabe is liking school.
