My how they grow!

I had my son, Pete, a week past his due date and my dear friend, Jessi Hardy Scherm, was induce and had her son, Lars, on her due date. Awesome that our sons were born just hours apart.
Lars Sherm: Born April 4th, 2008
Pete Silverthorne: Born April 5th, 2008
I am so excited every time we get to see them.
It is fun to have snapshots in time compared. By the way, these boys are both the tallest in their class.

The big, the proud, the Kindergartner

Our sweet Aubrey is now in Kindergarten. I am so grateful for her positive attitude about learning and excited for all of the new things she will experience this year in ACA's K class. She has some awesome teachers. I thank God that Aubrey is at an awesome school!

This is a picture of Aubrey when she started 2's class (1 day a week) compared to her first day of Kindergarten.

To a dad who...

...without a doubt loves his kids entirely. You have always desired to be front and center in their lives and it shows. To a dad who takes time to listen, care for, discipline, pray with, explain things to, teach and share. Aubrey and Pete love you very much and I thank God for you, for the man, husband and FATHER you are. Happy Father's Day Bryan!!

I thank God for my boys

My boys

Do you ever feel like you are seeing a person with a mini-version of himself? Pete and Bryan look so much alike to me sometimes. They have those big, dark eyes with long eye lashes, a sweet smile and they are both random, clever, hilarious and very charming. I am overjoyed to be hanging out with this great duo for a long while.

A phone-book

A man brought a package to our door. A phone book. This is the fun conversation I had with Aubrey.

Aubs: What is that?
Me: A phone book
Aubs: Like the one Grandad has?
Me: Yes sweety, I am sure he has one.
Aubs: Neat does it have games on it?
(a pause)
Me: OHHH, you are thinking of his iPad which looks like a large Phone and a Book sometimes. No, this book is not as cool as Grandads. It is just a plain book with people's names along with their phone numbers in it so we can look up people's phone numbers if we know their names.
Aubs: That means we can look up that girl in my dance class and ask her to come over and play with me.
Me: Well, we can certainly look her up. What is her name?
Aubs: I don't know, she never told me.

It is getting better but this is how crazy it was for Grammy to get a picture with 9 of her grand-kids.

It's the Great Pumpkin

We got to hang out at the Alpine Pumpkin patch one day in October and loved it. We had lots of fun taking pictures.

I love the Fall!!
