The other morning I made pancakes for the kids. I ripped up half of one and gave it to Gabriella and left the other half on the counter next to her. I had to leave the room for a second and when I got back she had stood up on her hairchair to get the other half of the pancake. She has never stood up on the hairchair before and about gave a heart attack when I came back a sew her like this.

Reading the paper

Saturday morning we had a lazy morning a just sat around and read the newspaper. Olsen loves to mimick his dad and had to be just like him. I took way too many pictures, but I couldn't help it. He was just way too cute. You will also notice that even though he was reading the newspaper, he couldn't sit still.

Gabriella didn't want to be left out. She was actually crawling around making a mess of all the newspaper on the floor

Then I got a minute to read, Olsen had to join me too. :)

Flash back - Olsen 9 months old

I don't have any new pictures to post, so I thought I would show these cute pictures of Olsen at 9 months. I need to go take some cute ones of Gabriella with a flower....

Princess Gabriella

Monday night was our niece Nivee's first birthday party. For some reason I don't have any pictures of her, but got a couple shots of Gabriella and Olsen borrowing her crown.

Not to be out done by his sister, Olsen needed a turn with the crown.

Olsen also loved all the balloons. Here he is right after taking a bath.

Picture Time

The other day Kelton came over to play. This is how they hung out and watched a movie. Funny boys.

Gabriella is now 9 months old. She is completely weened and loves to feed herself.

Gabriella taking Olsen's car for a spin. Well, more like a taste drive.

Funny boy, funny girl

I let Olsen watch a movie in my room and I when I went to go check on him this is how I found him. Snuggled in is dad's hoody sweater, backwards. Oh, please pay no attention to my messy room. Didn't get around to making the bed that day...

Gabriella found the wipes and learned how to pull them out. She looked rather pleased with herself.

The house we almost bought

So..... we almost bought a house this last weekend. Very cute, but too far from work and family. It is about about 40 miles north of town in Waimea. It was nice to be so close to buying a house though. One day soon we will have a home of our own.

Here are a couple of pictures of the house.

nap time

Yesterday the kids took their naps at the same time (I love when that happens). About a hour and a half after Olsen fell asleep I heard him in his room making noise by the door. He will sometimes hang out in his room and wait for me to come get him. Well, I went to his door and he literally slammed the door in my face. So I walk away and let him have his alone time. Didn't think much of it, but when he didn't come out in 15 minutes I went to go check on him. This is how I found him. Could barely fit my camera around the door to take his picture. He LOVES to snuggle with his blanky. Any blanky will do, but he seems to be favoring his new car one Grandma Harris gave him. Oh, and he slept for another hour. It was a very nice break to have the kids sleep that long.

After checking in on Olsen, this is how I found Gabriella sleeping.

They both woke up at the same time and Olsen jumped into Gabriella's crib. This is how I found them. My kids crack me up.
