Baby, it's cold outside!

This morning the kids tried to go with Eric to school. The picture above is Aubree and Tanner on their way back from Eric's car. It was locked, or they both would've been buckled in. They always ask him if they could go with him to school. Tanner thinks Eric's lunch box is his.
Eric took some of the little down time he has to spend time with Aubree making necklaces.

Eric and celebrated this on Monday. I am so grateful for Eric and the perfect husband he is for me.

My parents took us to the Spokane County Fair last week. The kids loved getting out and seeing all the animals and people. Aubree rode her first roller coaster. She was right at the height cut-off. She rode it with her cousins and loved it. I love the pictures of her as she is riding. She looks so worried the whole time. She said she had fun even though she doesn't look like it.

Tanner sharing a wrap with Grandpa. He loved being there, watching people, eating, and dancing to the music.
We had 4 strollers that we used to keep all the kids with us.
Aubree with Leah and Grandpa. She said she needed my sunglasses.
I love Aubree's laugh.
Aubs and Tann with our ITouch's.
Travis is such a funny boy. I gave him a bowl with pretzel sticks and he thought he needed to eat them with a spoon. I gave him a spoon and the stick wouldn't stay on the spoon so I broke the pretzels into smaller pieces. He still had a hard time eating them this way and was getting so frustrated.

The kids playing in Tanner's bed.

Tanner Pledge

I love Travis' cheesy smile.
Eric helping me get the kids situated to take some pictures. Even with how busy Eric is, he takes the time to be such a great dad. He takes each kid separately on a "date." Tanner hasn't stopped talking about it since.
Handsome Tann!
I love that Aubree wants to take pictures now. She is so beautiful!

Love this picture of the kids. I can't believe how old they are getting.
Tanner's Pledge of Allegiance. He is so cute!

Bigger Car & A New Dad

It was SO nice having an extra day this weekend to relax and be able to hang out with Eric. He had 2 exams on Friday and had no new material to study, so we got to spend time with him Saturday through Monday. It was heaven!
Aubree was snuggling with Eric and looked up at him and said, "Dad, we need a bigger car and a new dad." Eric asked her why. She said she needed a new dad so he could be a kid with her and a new car so we could have lots and lots of kids. Aubree already has it planned out where all of our future kids will sleep.
On Labor Day we met my parents and Amy's family for a hike. For some reason, Tanner carried a thing of sprinkles with him for the whole hike (see pic above).

I love this picture of Trav. He looks so old. He is so handsome!

I can't believe that it is September! Anyways, we spent most of the weekend in Wenatchee, so Eric could get more studying done. The Nygards are harvesting and canning like crazy and the kids loved "helping" them. I don't think they were able to get much done with us there, but we appreciate them letting us come.

When Eric's Dad got home from work Trav was screaming with a really bad diaper rash (from crazy diarrhea (in case you were wondering)). It got so bad, Trav couldn't walk. Darrell was holding Trav and fell asleep. As soon as Aubs saw the camera, she ran to get in the picture. Love this picture. I let Trav go free for a while while we were outside to help his bottom. I love this picture of the boys picking raspberries. Beautiful Aubs
I took Brian's Senior Pics while we were there. I can't believe how grown up he is and how much he looks like Eric.
