Brotherly love!

Grandma Lil made these cute jamies for the boys for Christmas, Thank you Grandma Lil we love the gangster pants on Remy!

Christmas Day

Merry Christmas! Hope you all had a nice Christmas!

We had a really nice Christmas! We were able to talk to all our family on Skype so we were also able to see them ! It was so nice to see everyone and talk to you! We sure missed all of you but we are so grateful that we were able to talk to you! This Christmas I was the one up at 5:30am because I was so excited to see my boys open their presents. Hudson didn't even get up until 7:00. Hudson was so excited it was alot of fun!

Remy loved his new toy from Santa, most important the balls that came with it! I love this picture of his big smile looking at the balls!
Hudson got a Walle and Eve and some Knex! He must have been a good boy to get what he asked for from santa ! He was so excited when he saw Walle and Eve he also got the movie which he loves!
The boys in their Christmas Jamies! You can't really see them but the have snow men all over them and on the shirt it has three snow men lined up and it says " Chillin with my hommies"! We couldn't pass those by!

This year I suprised Travis with a Wii ! I would not normally buy a nintedo but I really like the fun family games and of course the Wii Fit. I thought Travis knew but he was so suprised. We had fun playing it with the kids and the Draves!
We had the Draves over for Christmas breakfast again, it was so nice to share it with them! We sure missed Josh! ( Their dad has been at dry dock since October and the crew wasn't able to make it back yet) We hope he will get back soon!

To finish of the night Remy got his first big shinner on his head. He has bumped it alot but this time he got a huge bruise right away! Poor baby, you can't see it to well in the pic!

Christmas Eve

We sure missed seeing our Familys but we are so grateful to have such good friends to share our holidays with!

We had a nice Christmas Eve! We had a few friends over to have dinner with us. I made the traditional Ham, Potatoes and this is the second year that I have made butterflake rolls! We also had some yummy Guava Cheesecake from costco that I have been looking forward to for a few months!

The Girls! Katie, me , and Mardy!
Thanks again for coming guys!

Hudson was so excited when we brought all the presents out that night! I told him that he got to open one present and he was so excited. We do Christmas Jamies and Remy was already asleep so Hudson opened both of them. Hudson wanted to open more of course and kept trying to be sneeky. He would say "I just want to look at the tags!" Then he picked up two presents and said "I like these ones I am going to put them in my room!" Nice try!

No Training Wheels!

Today Travis decided to take Hudson's training wheels off, and he rode it as if he was born to ride a bike! It didn't suprise me to much because he is so cordnated with doing things like this! He did awesome. Travis didn't even run with him he just held his bike and he took off! I think that he could have done this a while ago but he goes so fast with the training wheels and dosen't have to pedal so fast to not fall over! So looks like I'll bee running after now! By the end of the day he was turning around really good and going up and down the cirbs. He did run into a parked car, well the tire so no damage there, he just needs to work how much he brakes and turns at the same time! I am so pround of him he is growing up so fast. Good job buddy! This video was his second go at it and he still did really good!


Remy is going to be one in a few weeks and I just can't belive how time flys! He is still a happy little boy. He has been pulling up on everything and stays busy following his big brother around.

For so reason Remy really likes socks. He will crawl around with them in his mouth or hand all day!

Travis put up this shelf for me in our laundry room the other day and called me in to see the final product and the weight test and this is what I found!


They had Santa come on the helo again this year to visit the kids! Hudson was so excited! I reminded him in the morning that Santa was coming to visit and he said " Can I give him a love"? Meaning a hug! He has been so excited for Christmas this year! Hudson has been telling everyone that he is getting Knex and a Walle and Eve toy for Christmas from Santa.
Hudson doesn't look like he is very excited in the pic but he was. Remy did good and kept looking at his beard. He did start crying at the end because Santa started to laugh and it scared him. Santa gave all the kids a toy and Hudson got a few trucks. After he opened his present Hudson snuck back up with Santa and Travis went over to get him and Hudson said " Thank you Santa for the truck , but I want Walle !" Funny boy!

Soccer Mom

I am a soccer Mom! It is so exciting to see Hudson growing up and doing new things! Today was his first game and we all had a good laugh. Hudson did good, as good as a three year old can with out knowing what is really going on.

This is the cute banner that a few of the Mom's made for the team! We are the green Dragons!

Hudson is such a preformer! He will fall down in the grass and roll around then strike a pose and look to see if any one is watching! Everyone had a good laugh! On the way to the game Travis told him to remember that we don't need to fall down that we stay on our feet and chase the ball! Sorry Dad that yous son is a little silly! Travis had a good time watching him play!

Here is a nice action shot of Hudson and his buddy Ethan who is on the other team, in red on the right! They had enough kids sign up in the coast guard that they had two teams. They split the alphabet in half so Hudson is on a different team than a few of his good buddies but he has a few on his team to. We just have to remind them to get back with their team during practice.

Kicking the ball in the goal, practice!

Warming up with the team.Hudson is the on straight across from the coach with the ball. Travis is standing next to him.

This is a short clip of the game. I know the Grandparents will like it. By the way Hudson is the one visiting with his buddy Ethan. His number is 1.

Big Boy

Remy is getting relly good at pulling up on stuff! He has figured out how to climb up our slide! I have been baby proofing our home more because is is starting to get into everything already! Every day he gets a little more daring! Ahh I am not ready for this, He will be a year old in less than one month! I can not belive how fast time flys! He is still the most happy plesant boy ever! He loves to follow Hudson around and play with him. Last night I put Hudson to bed and was getting Remy's bottle ready to put him to sleep. Remy could hear Hudson yelling about Hudson and crawled over to his door and started banging on it! He loves his big brother so much they are really cute to watch!


Me and Sarah

All Of the kiddos had a good time playing together!

Better later than never! We had a nice Thanksgiving, our good friends the Draves had us over for dinner. It was so nice to be able to spend it with friends than by ourselves! They are leaving this transfer season in the summer and I don't know what I am going to do!( I will just have to lock them up) I am so sad, me and Sarah have become good friends and it will be different here with out her! Thanks you guys for having us over, we love you!

Five awesome Years!

Today is our 5th Anniversary! I can't believe how time can fly! It has been such a fun five years with so many changes. Here is a little overview.... Moved 7 times, lived in 2 States and a different country, had 2 babies, Trav has had 5 completely diffrent jobs ( AE Outfitters, Plumbing, Lab tech at Primary Children Hospital, Prison, and now Coast Guard I think its about time for a change:} ) , and 4 cars! What an eventful 5 years! I am so Grateful that I was blessed to marry such an amazing man! I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us! I Love you Travis!

Boys, Boys, and more Boys!

Here are a few pictures of the boys, and what they have been up to lately!

Hudson army crawling around with Remy!

Grandma Lil sent the boy's a package and it had the Thanksgiving little people set! Hudson was so funny when he opened it he said "I love it"! Thanks Grandma Lil and Papa!

Remy enjoyed the little people! He especially loved eating them and banging them around! When we first handed it to him he looked at the little face and just smiled then proceed to slobber on it!

Here they are both watching Yo Gabba Gabba! It is a pretty scary show Travis loves it and I'm sure he would have been sucked into it also if he was home!

Remy dancing!

Remy has been dancing a lot lately! Last night we finally got it on video! When he was eating dinner last night my cell phone rang and he stopped mid bit and started dancing! It was so funny! Remy is an intense eater so it caught us by surprise ! He will growls the whole time that he is eating! If he sees us eating and he wants a bite he will growl! Kinda cute but getting old to us when we have to hear it every meal!

My Sweet Boy!

Hudson has been such a pleasant boy all around lately! The terrible two's don't even compare to the Horrific Three's! I have a really hard time with the back talking and a few other things that come along with getting big and being independent! I don't know what changed lately other than he is 6 months away from being Four! Maybe it magically gets a little easier or I've just learned how to reach him better and we understand each other better! He is doing so good at listening and doing things all by himself! My Baby is getting so big and I am trying to enjoy every moment I can because before I know it he will be grown and gone! We sighed Hudson up to play soccer, it starts next month! He is so excited he always wants to play soccer with Mom or Dad. He is staring to understand not to use his hands, we have to keep reminding him no hands! Last night I was playing with him and he was doing so good not using his hands, then when he bent over and I reminded him no hands so he bent down and used his elbows! Funny boy, it wasn't his hands, is that allowed in soccer? I love you so much Hudson! Thanks for being so patient with your Mom!


Just plan cute!

Playing on the sweet red kitchen floor! Our whole house is tile and I have become a little anal since Remy has been army crawling around! I have been sweeping and mopping every other night! I hate picking Remy up and he is covered in crap! These floors are so hard to keep clean, I won't miss them ! { My Mom bought these sweet socks for Remy along with a blue pair with brown srips at a boutique! Thanks Grandma! He wears them every day because pants are to hot to wear and these are thin enough! They help his legs not stick to the ground when he is moving around! He is all over the place!}

Hudson sucking on Remy's foot! He does this every once in a while, I have no idea why his foot but it gets Remy to laugh every time! Remy is really ticklish even his feet!

Hudson has been really good with Remy lately! I think that as Remy gets bigger and interacts more Hudson notices him a more! Hudson is such a good brother and really plays soft with Remy! He can always get Remy to smile or laugh in seconds! It has been really fun as a mom to watch them play! These are a few pictures of a rare occasion were Hudson is letting Remy climb on him or touch him! Hudson is getting better everyday with Remy! Its not that he doesn't love him he just is accepting him better as a play mate!

I'm awake!

This is Remy's new thing that he has been doing lately! He knows were the door is that we walk into to go into his room! So when he wakes up or his going down for naps he will crawl over to the end of the bed and pulls down the bumper pad and yells out to us until we come and greets us with a big huge cheesy smile! He is 10 months old tomorrow! He is so fun and does the cutest things I just want to squeeze him! Love you Remmers!

Siblings, swings, and picking apples!

This is Remy's concerned look that he gives us! Here he is swinging backwards in the swing he thought that was pretty fun! You wouldn't think so by the face he is making!

Here he is smiling! Notice the nice scratch on Remy's forehead, he got that in nursery from a little girl! I stayed in with Hudson for a few minuets to get him settled in my mom's ward and while we were their Remy got scratched! Umm maybe we don't want a sister after all!

Hudson helped Grandma Lil pick apples! He thought it was pretty cool to stand on the ladder!

Hudson loves to swing high and fast! What a true boy!

This is a picture of me and my siblings. Bethany, Parley , Me, and Brady! I am so grateful that we all love each other and we have a lot of fun together! I miss that I don't get to do things with them very often! They are all such fun Uncles and Aunt to our boys! Love you guys! Miss you!
