This is for you, Aunt Darcy.


Summer flew by at an incredible rate.

Adam was busy finishing up his gen ed credits and I worked three days a week in a cubicle.

While the boys enjoyed every minute of their park playing, pool swimming, pond fishing summer.

Yesterday was my first official day at school. It went well, but I am already missing being home with my boys (and my naps, of course).

The first home football game is Friday and Adam and Dixon both start back to school next week. Fall is in full swing!

A few updates on the boys:

1. Breckin still calls Dixon "Breck".

2. Dixon is 110% potty trained!

3. Breckin still prefers to be on the go all day everyday, while Dixon would rather "stay home".

4. Dixon is now able to successfully sleep away from home, Breckin is still working on this skill.

5. Dixon has become a master of the Wii mote.

6. Both boys spent an huge amount of time at the pool, river, park, lake, and grandparents.

It has been one glorious summer filled with lots of laughs, naps, and good times.

Blogging is just like riding a bike.

You can take a three month hiatus and when you get back on, it's like no time has passed. 

I don't know what my deal was. 

It had been so long and just kept getting longer, and I would feel worse about not blogging. 

Enough about that. 

I will slowly catch you up. 

Pinky promise. 

For now, how about some spring break 2012 pics?

We went to the Omaha zoo and Children's Museum.

Also a few more things...

1. Breckin is talking up a storm, I mean sentences. 
2. Dixon is doing so well in everything; swimming, blastball, etc. 
3. Adam is working away on his classes, we are so proud. 
4. I am working 3 days a week at an office and have  started a new venture (more about that later). 

It feels soooooo good to be back .

Insta Friday Night

Update 2.0


I am just swimming, swimming, swimming to keep my head above water for 1 more week until spring break.

I have lost 33.2 pounds since the New Year after jumping back on the Medifast wagon.

My plane tickets are booked for Rachel and Rob's wedding in May. I will be heading to SF solo. I am both excited and nervous for this adventure without my babies. 


He has just made the Dean's List at Upper Iowa and has a GPA of 3.9!

Adam is really enjoying spending time with the boys during the day. :)

It has almost been a year since we made the decision for Adam to go back to school and honestly, it has been one of the best choices we have made.


This boy continues to be one of the sweetest most kind/tender hearted children on the planet. He constantly amazes me with his kindness twoards others and the patience he shows with his brother.

His favorite winter activity has become begging Daddy to play video games on the Wii so he can watch. I have to say this is probably Adam's dream come true. Someone wants him to play video games? ;)

Dixon has really gotten into the groove of school. I am so proud of him and I am constantly grateful for his amazing teacher. (I have no idea how she does it, but I am so glad she does!)

He is taking after his father in the aspect of being a homebody. I seriously think they would not mind staying home all day every day. :)

The other day he came up to me for snuggles and I asked him if he was feeling sick. He replied...

"No, I just love you Mama."

**Enter melting heart here**


This little guy is talking up a storm! He will say anything and everything you ask him to, which is just plain amazing.

If you look up the definition of go-getter in the dictionary you will likely see a pic of Breckie. He constantly wants to go go go.  I barely have to say the words bye-bye and he is standing at the door.

He loves to be in the kitchen (Grandma Gayle swears that he is Grandpa Dickie).

Breckin's choice of toys lately is usually trains and cars.

I think it may be something about the second child...but Breck thinks up and does things that Dixon has never even thought to do. Prime example...

Last night as Dixon were laying on the couch and Adam was laying in bed, we suddenly heard the GARBAGE DISPOSAL turn on. Yes, Breckin had climbed onto the counter and turned on the garbage disposal. I don't think I have ever moved so fast in my life. Thankfully, no appendages were in the disposal at time. :S

I mustache you a question...

Could my valentines be any cuter???

I don't think so either. 

Thanks to Missy over at Starr Circus for the idea! ;)
