Since my last post in October 2009...

Vaughn & Kaden at another Dodgers game before it cooled down. Kaden's painful smile shows it was 100 degrees that day. They still loved it of course...especially the playoffs.
I love trying to get pictures of all 3 of them...this is about as good as it gets. I love the facial expressions, pink sneakers, and the fact that Scarlet actually wore the ears.
Star Wars fans you have to use your imagination for this one but apparently Father & Daughter are the ones that battle in this scene.
Little Yoda. Scarlet was so darn cute but I think people only knew who she was because of her siblings. We had someone think she was Shrek which I thought was pretty funny.
Princess Leia or "Yaya" as Ashlyn calls her. We tried to get her to dress as Padame but she really insisted on this one. The shooter gun didn't make it out of the house because before we left Ashlyn hid it in one of her "dark places" as she calls them. She hid it so well that we were a half hour late to our party while looking for it. Too bad I didn't think of looking on the sugar canister in the pantry. She simply amazes me...and confuses me too.
Nothing other than Anakin Skywalker would do. He dresses daily as either a Jedi or Anakin. He specifically asked to wear this particular costume, with his hair a certain way, a braid attached and no glove. It's funny how he has in mind which particular scene he is dressed as. I laughed when his school asked what he wants to be when he grows up and he said "A Jedi".
These definitely are the days.

Napa was fun. Vaughn had a lot of down time & most of the events we could attend together.
Kaden is doing really well in soccer. He's very cooperative & really getting in there. He is on the All American Jedi...could you imagine anything other than something Star Wars?
Ashlyn showing off her Yellow Day project. Each month they have a different color theme, shape, letters, bible curriculum, bible verse, and character quality. I love the school so much & all of their fun filled activities. It makes it really hard to go to a public school after having such an incredible experience at this preschool. Thank God I really like Kaden's teacher this year. Do you know that Kaden's school says the Pledge of Allegiance every day & sang America the Beautiful at one of their assemblies?...I thought that stuff was long out of the public schools. Hopefully nobody complains about it or it will be gone before Ashlyn gets there.
Glad we bought the extra long wagon way back when Kaden turned one. Who knew we would be hauling this much stuff around for a day out on the beach.Kaden spent a lot of the summer out on the shoreline & in the water. It's funny because he hates the sun but would spend forever out on the beach. He never gets enough.
Went to a friend's house for the 4th. The kids swam & played like crazy. It was fun with the exception of me totally eating it while holding Scarlet. I slipped on some water & hit the ground so hard. Fortunately I broke most of the fall before she made it down. It was the first time I've fallen with one of my kids & so incredibly scary. I was so thankful that she was okay & it was only me that got stuck with a very nasty bruise. FYI - I fell twice that night...I'm such a klutz.
It's been a while since I've posted one of these lovely shots. Ashlyn was so mad she couldn't get her other ugg on. She's happy, silly and goofy most of the time but don't make her mad.
Lots & lots of backyard baseball. They play it for so many hours that Ashlyn had to learn how to enjoy it too so she could be part of the action. It's really funny to watch her run bases. It's also hilarious to see how serious Kaden is when he pitches. He makes up the game play by play & directs everyone how they're supposed to hit & how many bases they can run.

Scarlet was almost 4 months old in this picture & was working on holding her head up. This month she gave lots of smiles, laughs, rolled over a couple of times & started solids.
