I LOVE it when Deacon puts on his snowboots with his shorts. It just cracks me up. In this one, he even found some huge gloves that he took outside with him and kept putting on. Yesterday Joel and I took the boys and headed to the Cities. I wanted to do a little bit of shopping and we decided to visit the Loos clan while we were there as well. Always a good time to hang out with them. The four kids get along so well. Two more weeks to go and we will all be hanging out at a beach in Cabo. I just cannot wait!

Ty has a favorite teacher at his school and today was her last day. Apparently, Ty is also her favorite. She told me yesterday that out of the past three years of teaching, Ty is her absolute favorite and that if she ever has a little boy, she wants him to be just like Tyler. What an awesome compliment. It made my day. `Normally, I think that most people that don't have kids yet look at mine and think 'my kids will never behave like that'.
Joel has been in the Cities with some co-workers for the past two nights for training. I had the wives of those co-workers over for dinner last night. It was nice to get to know some of them a little better. I'll definitely have to try to have them over again.

Okay, does he not look like he is 10 in this picture? Geez, he looks so much older than 5.

Okay, so time for a sweet story about the Deacon since I made him sound like such a terror in that last post. Yesterday, both boys got to pick a treat from our treat jar (it includes fruit snacks, stickers, stuff like that) Deke picked first and he picked this Power Ranger Sticker. It was the only power ranger sticker that we had and of course this is the one Ty wanted. Ty was pretty upset that he couldn't have it and was starting to go into serious pout mode. Deke asks him: "Why you crying?" He knew it was because of the sticker because Ty did ask if he would trade and Deke said no originally, but when he saw how upset Ty was, he handed the sticker over to Tyler so Ty wouldn't be sad. I thought it was super sweet of him. These boys can be so protective of each other.
Today, Deke was being stubborn about getting ready to go to the store, so Daddy told him that he just wouldn't go unless he put his pants on. Tyler was over there arguing with Daddy that Deke couldn't do that by himself. Deke was getting pretty upset as well because he really loves to go to the store, so Daddy did help him put the pants on, but then wanted him to put his shoes on. Deke was again getting worked up even though he knows how to do this. So Tyler put Deke's shoes on for him so he wouldn't get left behind.
On another note, Scooby died over the weekend. We picked a new fish tonight and his name is...Batman.

Last of our hiking pictures. Had John Bberg's birthday party last night. It was so much fun. Neither Joel nor I wanted to leave. Finally around 10:30 we decided that we probably should get the kids home in bed. It was quite the late night for them. I was hoping they'd sleep in today, but they were up at 7:15. I shouldn't complain because that's really not that bad for them. Normally they are up around 6:30. Today, we get Connor! We are all excited to have this energetic ball of fun over. I'm sure I'll get a ton of great pictures of the three of them.
