We had another fun night outside tonight. Here are just a few of the pictures I took of Ryan. I'll post the ones of Gabe tomorrow. I'm tired and I think I'm going to head to bed soon. Another exciting Friday night over here! :)

Rainbow Six...

Just some pictures of my dear husbands favorite past time lately. He and his friends have "playdates" (as I like to call them) a couple times a week to play Rainbow Six on XBox Live. They have headsets and all! Usually I'm back in the bedroom playing around on the computer and these are some of the phrases I hear coming from my living room... "Cover me!", "Flashbang", "Go Go Go!" and lots of "DUDE!" and "SWEET!"

I love you, Matt! :)

Playing outside...

We love spending the evenings outside! The boys especially love to ride their bikes and run up and down the street. We are so lucky that we live on such a good street. There are families all around us that have young children. So the boys always have someone to play with. Here are some pictures of the boys I've taken recently... I had to bribe Gabe to get him to sit still long
enough for these next two pictures...but I
think it was well worth it! :)
They were playing hide and seek and this is
Ryan counting...I'm also trying to get caught up on my scrapbooking. I'm waaaaay behind! So I've been scrapbooking some pictures of the boys when they were much younger. Here are a few I've done lately...
This is Gabe when he was about 1. The journaling reads:
"You are on the brink. I see you on the edge of babyhood ready to
burst into childhood. You are so close to walking, talking, running,
jumping. A great big wonderful world is out there waiting for you.
We'll be there to watch you. So go for it. Step forward boldly.
Childhood is calling."
This Ryan when he was about 3 or 4 months old. These pictures
just crack me up! He started of the "photo shoot" so happy and
talkative and he ended up screaming at the top of his lungs!
I guess you could call this a memorial to all the beautiful curls
Ryan had when he was little. I absolutely loved his curls and I
miss them so much!
This is just a fun one I did of the boys in the bath...
This is another one I did of Gabe when he was about 1. I just
love these pictures of him!

Dot Com Junior

Gabe came home with an art project last week. I just thought it was so funny and I had to share. They're talking about their body parts at school and everyone got to trace their hands and tell what they use their hands for. All the other kids put things like I use my hands to clap or color. And Gabe put I use my hands to play dot com junior. For those of you who don't know the translation for dot com junior is Gabe loves to play games on the computer. He knows how to work a computer about as well as I do. I thought this was so cute, so I decided to post the artwork for you to see...

I've decided to try blogging. I just wanted a page where friends and family can go to see pictures of the boys and give updates every now and then about their crazy lives!! We'll see how long this lasts! :)
The boys started preschool last week. I'm teaching a class and it's nice that the boys get to go to their own classes and have some independence. Gabe absolutely loves it. He has been waiting for school to start all summer. Ryan on the other hand is not so sure. He has always been a mama's boy. I'm hoping that school will help him to become a little more independent. Although I don't want him to become too independent. Here are a few pictures from their first day of school...

Ryan is a Tiny Turtle...
Gabe is a Busy Bee...
