random pictures of my boys

They love smiling for the camera and they are such happy boys most of the time. And they play together well too--most of the time.
Quinn has a mouthful of teeth--6 with two more on the way. He is so close to walking. Right now it seems he just gets too tired to try and that crawling is so much easier. Yesterday he did his first sign--milk. He's getting so big, but sadly those chubby cheeks are fading away.
Sam is getting better and better everyday with obeying me. He'll help clean up his toys and he'll say sorry to Quinn when I tell him to. He's become very affectionate lately too. He say "love you" all the time and he's very generous with his hugs and kisses. Quinny gives kisses to if you ask him--they're nice big open-mouthers.
I sure love these guys!

11,750 ft

Back in September me and my sister and our husbands climbed Mt Timpanogus. We started hiking at 2am so we could be on the top by sunrise. We made it with perfect timing too, as you can see in the pictures. I couldn't get the top two pictures to rotate but I had to include them because of the beautiful background!
Well, it was a very hard hike--a lot harder that I remember from the two other times I've done it. And it took us 12 hours to hike the 18 miles. BUT, the view from the top was so worth it. Then the next morning we looked out at the mountain we had climbed the day before and there was snow on it--talk about perfect timing there too.

I can't believe it, my oldest is 3 YRS OLD!!! He turned 3 last week, but we had a party for him when my parents visited on the weekend.
We opened presents...
played with our new toys...(thank you so much everyone for the gifts!!)
then we needed a nap. Here is sammy with his new quilt from grandma sleeping in his new big boy bed from Mimi.
Then it was party time!! Me and my mom spent most of the morning making these cupcakes...
but they were a big hit. They tuened out so cute and it was fun making them too.

Here we are singing Happy Birthday to Sammy. When we all started singing he got this HUGE smile on his sweet little face. I think he knew this party was for him!
WOW, what a great day!
