Toronto Zoo

We went to the Toronto Zoo last week and it was a blast. They didn't have some animals since their habitats were being reconstructed but it was still fun. Kendall loved the elephants, hippos, and monkey's. Camden was just thrilled to see the geese walking around everywhere!

New Siding on House

We had a huge work day last month of kids from our youth group who came and helped tear down all of our old siding. We had a dumpster that they filled very quickly and were a huge help in getting us started on re-siding our new house. Here are some pictures of the work day, old siding, and new siding. The one of Trevor holding up the piece of siding is him putting up the last piece on the house. I am so proud of his for doing it by himself. Thanks to everyone who helped it happen and taught Trevor how to do it all.

Update on Kids

Sorry it's been so long since a post. We still don't have the internet at our new house yet but hopefully soon and then I will post a lot more often. The kids are doing great. Camden is 9 months old now and he is teething big time, almost walking, and weighs 2 pounds less than his older sister. He will definitely pass her by pretty soon. Kendall is doing great. She is starting to push the limits as all toddlers do. Yesterday she was singing "Jesus Loves Me" while sitting in the shopping cart at the top of her lungs and I thought about telling her to stop but then I figured if people heard the song maybe they would get a little Jesus in their lives! So I let her go. But they are so much fun. Changing more and more each day. The one of Kendall lying next to the bed is a funny story as well. I went in to check on her at night before I went to bed like I always do and she wasn't in her bed when I looked in and I panicked until I looked down and saw her sleeping on the floor. It was too cute not to take a picture of.

Kids and Mom!

I haven't had any pictures with the kids in a while so here are some updates!

Tree Stump

We had to get a tree stump ground up the other week. A tree fell over before we bought the house and a neighbor cut it all down. So Trevor and Kendall were out there raking it out and bringing all the mulch to the back yard. It has been so nice out here this past week. We were both on vacation last week so we got to work around the house a bit.

Camden is Crawling

Well it's official! Camden has mastered crawling. For a while now he was just army crawling but last week he finally figured out the leg part of it! It is getting crazier in our house since he is more mobil and can get into more things. Kendall is not liking it since he is starting to mess with her books and toys. But she will get used to it. I'm trying to teach her to call me if he is bugging her and not just yell at him to get away. We'll see if that works! Ha.

Pictures of Kids

Here are some updated pictures of the kids!

New House!

Hey Everyone -
We are finally moved into our first home! We are so excited to finally be in. It was a long and growing process but God has blessed us in the end for our patience. Here are some photos of it so far. There is still a lot more work to be done especially on the outside so I'll put updated photos up later of that progress. Thanks for all of your prayers they have been so helpful.

Update on Kids where to start with this girl. She is just too smart for our own good! She is still a little peanut and not growing hair very fast still. People keep telling me that it will come. I'm still waiting but not holding my breath. We are going to see Sesame Street Live on Saturday. So I will update more about that next week sometime. She loves to sing, read, watch the disney channel, color and so much more.
Camden will be six months already on the 10th. I can't even believe how quickly time is flying by. He is growing like a weed and soon will be heavier than Kendall! Yes it's true. He is starting to army crawl everywhere to get where he wants to go. He is also starting to steal kendall's toys and she is not too thrilled with that. He just found out he can make a "b" sound so all we have been hearing lately is bah bah bah bah. So that is fun! The biggest achievement to report on is that he is finally sleeping through the night! Thank you Jesus! It only took 6 months but he has finally mastered it. So we are finally catching up on some much needed sleep.
Still no final news on the house purchase. I'll update more on that when I can.

Play Time

Kendall is a major book worm which is good I guess except when she wants you to sit and read to her all day long and doesn't let you get anything else done around the house. She will pile up the highest pile of books and "read" to herself pretty well too. She knows all the names of books and you can hear her "reading" and saying words that we say on the pages. It is really cute. She also wants to play with whatever Camden is doing. She doesn't like when he has fun with out her. So here is her trying to be under his gym with him at the same time.

Trevor with the kids

Here are just a few pictures of Trevor hanging out with the kids. They are some cute pictures. We are still working on getting the house. We are going to give them a deadline and say we are walking away from it if they don't start getting somewhere on closing. We'll keep you posted.

Rock Star Kendall

Kendall loves to hold Trevor's Guitar Hero game guitar. She is following in her daddy's footsteps. She tries to play the game by just pushing buttons but doesn't make it very far! Ha! I'll let you know when she writes her first song.

Christmas Time

Sorry this is so late posted but we haven't had the internet with my parents so I am finally doing it here at work. Here are just a couple of pictures of Christmas. The kids in their Christmas outfits and also Kendall opening some Christmas presents. She was really overwhelmed with all the gifts and she was just in love with all of the books that she got.
