The kids had a blast! Here is Gunner and Aubree and cousin Rhianna!Brayden and Dyson! They are buddies!
Gunner showing me his muscles!
Aubree trying to go down the pole and Gunner just being Gunner! LOL
Brayden loves the slide...and behind him is cousin Kaitlyn.
Brayden has two nick names. One is Tater cause he loves potatoes and the other is bruiser cause he is always hitting his noggin. He fell off of the kitchen chair into another one and BOOM, a goose egg :( Poor baby was not happy! I was scared thinking he had a concussion. Boys are so tough!This is Miss Aubree ready for her first set of school pictures! they turned out so cute! I was very happy with them!

Aubree, Gunner and Brayden giving brotherly sisterly love! What a Treo!
Whats a day with out a sibling fight. Gunner was hit in the eye by a hot wheels car from Brayden. he got a black and blue eye and was swollen for a couple days!
Ha ha this must be a guy thing cause Jake sleeps like this all the time. His hand is guarding his "goods" Lol He does it all the time too! Like father like son :)
Getting ready to go out with my honey. Went and saw "Life as we know it" Such a good movie!Jake started working for Asarco mines at the beginning of Sept of 2010. Such a blessing to have such good friends. and you know what they say. Its not what you know its who you know! Thank you Kiley for being so good to us! We love you!
Silly family pic....ha ha cant go without one of these. However Gunner was not happy and Brayden had no idea what was going on. He had his milk and was very content!

I wanted a cute new family pic. Nothing to crazy but the kids did not cooperate :/ I hope soon we can get real ones taken!
Brayden loves to were hats! My first baby to just leave it on. He is so handsome.Gunner playing with all his trucks he has collected through his 3 years of life :)
They boys being silly while we are trying to unpack and get things organized in my brothers house.
We didnt dress them the whole day. Aubree was in school and the boys just wanted to play. Mom and dad were busy. So a perfect day for them to just be boys ! :)
Aubree started school on August 13 2010. She started in Young while we stayed with my parents. We knew this year she would have to change schools so we could move to where Jake could go to work. This is grades k thru second. She did Ok at this school. But when you are thrown in a classroom full of first and second graders and just turning 5 was a big jump for her. I think the teacher expected way more out of her that she could give. Which caused a huge amount of tension. She cried and did not want to go to school. But when we moved to Casa Grande and she started at Heartland Ranch she did a complete 180 and has gotten two excellent report cards and is a happy and very smart little girl. Her teacher Mrs. Waltz is an amazing teacher and I appreciate her not giving up on my child. Aubree class in Young
On her first day of school she went up to the kids on the play ground and made friends right away.
Getting ready to leave the house to go to her first day of Kindergarten
Jake helping get Aubree back pack together
Aubree and Mommy getting her pencils ready. She was so nervous and excited. I think I was more scared and sad that my baby was going to start her first day of school. Holy cow where does the time go ? :/
Jake surprised me by coming home from Texas for my birthday! I was so excited. We never spend more than a day or two away from one another. He was in Texas for 3 weeks before I got to see him. I had an extremely hard time with it. But when he came home he decided to stay home and apply for Asarco mines again. Needless to say I was one happy WIFE!Aubree's Birthday in only a week after mine. Before we knew Jake was going to stay home we wanted to have her party while he was home. So we did ours together. She is 5 and mine is a secret :)
Birthday kissed!
Make a wish.....By the way mine came true when Jake decided to stay home.
I love little miss Aubree so much! She is so helpful with her brothers...most days....and is so smart. I know parents always say that but I know she is a little smart whip. She got lots of new clothes and tinker bell toys on her special day!
Ok so this post is just a little late.....as are the rest. I have slacked and decided I need to do better. So here is kina a rough estimate of what has gone down in our house hold since we got back from Pitts in July 2010!

Gunner boy turned three as we were driving back from Pittsburgh. When we got home we celebrated his birthday in Young at my parents house! His birthday is in July :)
He got lots of toys including a fire truck and a truck and boat...which is his favorite to this day!

Loving his batman cake! This little boy is so fun to be around....a handful at times but I would not change a thing about him! He is my little man! Jake and I are so proud of him!
