Because of the wonderful, beautiful, and also AWESOME snow, I decided to bring up all the toys from the basement so my kids have something to do during the winter in March we are currently having. Oaklee called over Addison and Dawson to play. They had so much fun playing in the tent, jumping on the in door trampoline, running all over the house getting the bad guys with their spider man toys (compliments of McDonalds!!) and giggling so hard they would fall to the ground! I love this age it is sooo much fun to see their imaginations come alive. Here are some pics from the day.

Did I mention that they are all models :)

DayBreak Lake

We decided to get out of the house today because it was above freezing for a minute. (Its suppose to snow again tomorrow dang-it!) Oaklee was sooo ornery today so we needed to get out of this house and get some fresh air and exercise but of course Oaklee wouldn't let Cody put her down because on the weekend she is obsessed with him and Beckham would not hold still long enough for me to get a good picture of him. This is one that I got of the three of them together...........kind of together! I didn't get any of the little guy not in motion so it is kind of blurry but kind of cool at the same time.

The MacArthur Visit!

These are my Beautiful Nieces and Nephews. Arielle always likes me to take pics of her when she comes because she is constantly changing her hair style and likes to see what she looks like in pictures. I decided to do some of each of them, they were all very willing. We had a lot of fun we went to wheeler farm and saw the animals. We fed the ducks and the geese (which were very brave and kind of scary!) Check these out, I really like how they turned out

Happy Birthday Beckham! We had such a great day today, he was so happy and loved every minute of the attention he was getting. I am a little upset because all the pictures I took today I took at 1600iso and didnt realize until I was putting them on my blog! They are a little grainy but they are still cute! I also put on some pics of Beckham and his first year, i can't believe how fast time flies and how big he is getting LOVE YOU BUDDY!!

Salina yet again! Yummy food and fun Pictures!

We went again to the great Salina this past weekend, it was a lot of fun! We were able to hang out with Matt, Jenn, Chevia, Zach, Bret, Iyrlend, Paul, Curtis, Arielle, Clay and Mikey. We ate some yummy food from Gatorz on Saturday night as we laughed about old stories of Cody and my sister and sister-in-law while they werer in High School. Sunday morning we made yummy waffles with coconut syrup (absolutely my all time favorite breakfast food) after that we went out and took some fun family pics of the beautiful Gates Family. They turned out really good I just wish i had my new camera and some lights because the sun was covered too much by the clouds, I needed a little more light for what I was trying to pull off. After pictures we went home and Matt made a yummy deep fried turkey with Spanish tortillas, it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good! Jenn also made a very good salad with the best dressing I have ever tasted in my life. Now its time for all the fun pics, here we go.....................
We also went to Grandma Gates House and borrowed the chair that is in the first few pics. I love it! Oaklee was so excited that she has another Grandma, I told her it was my Dads mom she just giggled with delight, she even sat on her lap.... WILLINGLY:) we were all shocked. I forgot to mention that on the way down to Salina Beckham had one to many Cheetos and one too many swigs of milk and spewed all over the back seat, it was pretty stinky!

Matt loves Babies, I love to watch him play with them. Don't you love how the little indentation on Beckhams forehead!

Beckham LOVES Spike and I think Spike secretly loves him
