Cute kids

I was putting pictures on the computer from my camera and had to laugh at all the cute things we've caught Natalie and Blake doing lately. Hope you enjoy!

Natalie lined up all these things with Blake and said, "Choo Choo. Choo Choo."

Natalie helping clean with her own water bottle. I was trying to get her to keep the water only on the windows but I wasn't very successful.

She put these on and clomped around the house. Daddy's shoes are a lot harder to walk in than Mommy's!

Her new thing has been to wear the cookie cutters on her arms like bracelets. She thought she'd see how they look on Blake's arms and legs too. He was pretty cooperative for awhile.

Our cute little guy. He's such a good baby... happy all the time and a pretty good sleeper already!

Brian wanted to see if Blake could fit in the high chair too. He can! :)

I figured out how to give them a bath at the same time. Anything to make life a little easier.

Helping Daddy study for the Department of the Army Competition. Although I'm sure he gets a lot more done when they're in bed! Brian leaves on Thursday to compete next week for "Warrior of the Year" at the highest level possible in the Army. Among other things he will do a PT test, day and night land navigation, qualification on the M4, a board appearance, a written test, and a day of warrior tasks and drills. It's an intense week-long competition but he has trained and studied so hard. I'm so proud of him. The Army should post pictures of the different events so I'll give you the link when we know it.

Can you believe I'm almost two months already??

Guess that's enough for now. Right now Natalie has marker all over her arms and legs--still learning about coloring only on paper. Oh well... it's washable. :)

Our First Post!

We decided to finally join the world of blogging. My parents just returned home and already miss their grandkids. Since we live so far away and the kids are growing so fast, we'll try to keep you all updated with pictures regularly. For those of you that we haven't talked to recently, we now live in Hawaii and have two children, Natalie (almost 2) and Blake (almost 2 months). We hope you enjoy this and it helps us to keep in touch.
