A Fun Surprise!

This is what happened Sunday morning right before church.
Laney's first lost tooth.
Here it is! Proud as she can be. She even has another loose one ready to come out any moment. Man, how did she get so big so fast.

In this pocket you will find A teensy, tiny tooth of mine. So while I sleep where dreams are made, Let's see if you can make a trade.
In this pocket I will lay, the little tooth I lost today. Please, dear fairy,tonight as I sleep leave me a coin. My tooth you can keep.

Witchy Weekend!

Noah did NOT want to stop and sit to take a picture.
All the kids wanted to try and hoola hoop just like this witch, well not all the kids(right Alexis).
Laney and Logan dancing on a hay bale. Gardner Village was playing dancin' music and they danced the day away while looking at all the witches.
All the kids taking a little cop-a-squat(rest).
Sitting on a swinging bench down by the water wheel.
The kids thought this witch looked upset.
This was Noah's face almost the whole visit with the witches. The kid just smiles from ear to ear all the time.
Logan loved these witches and he said they were making toothpaste. Eric and I laughed the whole day over that thought.
Logan loved all the pumpkins and wanted a picture with all of them. He's very excited for when we get to go to the pumpkin patch. We had a very fun Saturday morning and even had some bread and cheese from the bakery. After we were done we let the kids pick out a sugar stick from Sweet Afton's and then we went home to take a rest. The kids were beat after running all over Gardner Village.

Take me out to the ball game!

So it's that time again, fall sports. This year we decided to let the younger ones finally try their hands at sports. We signed up Logan and Laney for t-ball and they are having a blast so far. It's new for them, they are not use to organized play, but are having a blast at learning how to play on a team.Logan up at bat for the very first time. He's so cute and so old! AAGH!
He was proud of himself when he wacked the ball off the stand. Yay, Logan, now run! He is still learning that part.

This is a picture of his little team. They are so cute!
Laney standing in the field having a blast. She actually has a friend on her team from her primary class. She absolutely loves t-ball.
I kept missing the picture of her at bat, due to I was holding Bella and the camera, but here she is running home. We are enjoying watching these two begin their love of sports and being a part of a team. Alexis and Kaleigh will be doing sports this winter. Kaleigh wanted to do indoor soccer which begins in November and Alexis wants to do basketball again which doesn't begin until December. It's nice just having the two do something right now.

Guess Who Game

I was playing with Bella the other day and we are trying to get her to like being on her tummy. We play tummy time to get her used to it, but she still rather play on her back. I took these really cute pictures of her and noticed many similarities to other kids' pictures. See if you can see the similarities as well.

So, we have a picture of Kaleigh at 3 months (which everyone says Bella looks like anyways), then we have Logan at about 3 months and then I found my picture at 2 months. Bella is definately my baby and she definately belongs to our family.

Noah's Party

We had a family party on Saturday for Noah and of course it had to be a Cars theme birthday party. Noah was a very excited little 2 year old and had a ton of fun.Noah's cake I made for him.
Lighting the candles getting ready to sing.

Noah just hates to be sung to and put in the spotlight. Funny boy!

The other kids excited for their cake!

Enjoying the cake and ice cream.
Getting presents, all either cars or train related. He loves them both so much! He had a fun party-laughed, ran around wild, and had a ton of fun playing with his new trains and cars. I can't believe how fast time goes by. My baby boy isn't so little anymore. He had his 2 yr. check-up this week too and he weighs 27 lbs. 14 0z. and he is 36 inches tall. He's gonna be a big boy. We just love to make big kids I guess.

Look Who's 2!

Noah Gabriel Hansen
8lbs. 10 1/2 oz.
19 1/2 inches long
Born on September 17, 2007 at 8:04 a.m.

Has officially turned 2 years old and lovin' every moment of it. Love of cars, cake, running around, and talking non-stop are just a few of his favorite things. He is our little ray of sunshine with a smile on his face from the time he wakes in the morning til the time his sweet little head hits his pillow at night.

He just loves a good party, especially when he gets to open up presents and run around like a wild hyenna. He seriously runs around like the energizer bunny, he keeps going and going and going. The kid wears me out daily, but makes me smile all the time.

You can't see it very well, but this sweatshirt has a car on it and all he says is "vroom, vroom." He absolutely loved it. He also got some presents from his sisters and brother. They are the sweetest kids. They go and find something of theirs that they think he would like and wrap it up and give it to him. They do this with everyone's birthdays. How cute are they! They all have such loving and giving hearts, I love it. Well, my baby boy is now 2 and no longer likes to be called my baby. Anytime I say my baby he points to Bella and says baby. They grow up so fast. I wish they could just stay little.

Wheeler Farm

We took the kids to Wheeler Farm on Wednesday and had fun looking at some animals and tractors. It was fun to get out in the fresh air during a nice day. The kids wanted to climb on just about every piece of equipment we came upon. Logan was very upset he didn't get to ride on the green tractor, Eric wouldn't let him get up on it so he spent the last half of the afternoon very upset. First pic of the kids as we started the walk around the farm.
Taking a dancing break. Logan is showing me that his feet are dancing. He does this everyday to me. He just loves to move his body anyway he can.

Noah heading over to the cows all by himself. They were calling to him and he thought it was the funniest thing. He giggled and screamed everytime they moo-ed.

Such cute little posers.
We walked over to the goats and they started climbing on stuff in their caged area trying to get out. We had to keep the kids back, because everytime they went near the goats the goats jumped up higher.
Kaleigh loved this stump. It was her stage to be seen by all.
As we were leaving we walked through this grassy area where tons of geese were eating. Eric braved walking through it(he's afraid of geese) because Noah wanted to see all the geese. Some even started walking towards them and the girls. It was a fun afternoon and now the kids are all pumped up to go to the zoo and see more animals. They just love visiting all kinds of animals.

Fashion Show

The boys and I got invited to a fashion show put on by Kaleigh and Laney. It was way cute. We had a day with no planned activity and K and L spent the morning dressing and accessorizing their barbies. They requested us to come see the show and the boys ran into their room and took their seats. Logan was really excited to see the show. He's so cute and loves his sisters to death. They made up their own music and Kaleigh was the announcer.

The runway for the dolls was so cute. They are so imaginative and creative little girls. It really was a cute show.
Noah even sat still throughout the entire show. What cute little kiddies I have. I love being able to see these wonderful little moments. Staying at home and raising these kids has been one of the BEST decisions I have ever made. I just love my life.

Children's Garden

We decided to go to the Children's Garden with some friends and have some Saturday fun. The kids absolutely loved it and had a blast seeing and playing with friends we haven't seen for awhile. Thank you Liz and Scott and family for the fun day at the garden. It was so much fun we are thinking of doing it again. It was our first time going, we didn't know what to expect, but we found ourselves so relaxed with just letting the kids run around exploring and hanging out with their friends. This is the Noah's Ark water feature that is at the front of the gardens right when you walk in. Noah was so drawn to the water that he took a spill right into it first thing. He just loves the water as well as all the other kids. The water was definately one of their favorite parts.

We had so much fun on a nice Saturday morning with some good friends. We are enjoying our stay-cation very much. Many more outings to come and many more laughs, we love this month of fun.
