About Me

My photo
We have a house full of boys! It can get a little crazy sometimes, but I wouldn't change it for the world! Matt: "Matty" He is the best husband, and father anyone could ever ask for! Matt is the most driven person, he puts 110% into everything he does! Logan: "Hollywood" I am just a fun loving mom! I live for my three boys! You could also say I am a little bit of a shopaholic! McCoy: "Mac Daddy" He is the boy of many faces! He definately keeps us busy! Mac is the biggest flirt! A ladies man for sure! And last but certainly not least Madden: "Madman" is such a sweet boy! But at the same time can be a little stinker!He is very strong willed, Just like his daddy! He absolutly loves his brother, and smiles and laughs at him constantly! We are all learning and growing day by day...

Prince Madden

Michelle bought Madden this outfit when he was born. Ryder had the same one however, Madden was just able to fit into it! and because it is long sleeved it is now chilly enough that he can! So I thought I would post some pictures of Prince Madden!
Oh.... and I thought that I would add that Madden has been sitting up since the 9th of August, he gets a little excited sometimes still and tips over, but hes doin pretty good!
And also, When we got home from camping last Sunday the 17th Madden has been working on crawling at only 6 MONTHS!!!! I am so shocked, but he is the strongest baby I have ever seen! He can get up in the crawling position and he does the rocking back and forth, and he used his legs to push him forward! It is hilarious! So he is moving now...just not quite crawling per say because he can't quite figure out how to coordinate his arms and legs moving together! I will post some pictures of it soon!


Thought I would add in some pictures of our Oh So Loved Bulldog Magnum! He is just the funniest dog!

Fair Night!

Monday night we went to the fair! McCoy loved the petting zoo, and of course he loved the rides! Matt and I had so much fun taking him! Little Maddy had fun too but I am sure that next year will be the best! Then we will both be able to take them on rides!

McCoy jumped in like a BIG boy!

I thought I would share some pictures of camping last weekend. We went up for Mike's birthday (Matts dad). We had a lot of fun, it was relaxing and very nice to see Matt for a couple days without him having to work! We went boating, and McCoy caught the First and only fish on his "chow" pole! He was pretty proud of himself! Here are some cute pics of the weekend


Crawlin' the curb

Left in the dust!

McCoy loves his new jeep that he got for his birthday! And let me tell ya, that thing hauls!!! He is still not able to turn very well so you have to help him! We brought it over for a bbq at Matt's parents house, so Mac took his cousin Ryder for a ride.... Poor little guy kept getting his head bonked! They were great entertainment though!

Cupcakes and Toenails!

Its a bouquet of cupcakes!
How i found the nailpolist....Good color choice: Pompeii Purple!
The Outcome!
The same night....Madden wearing daddys hat!

For Tasha's 18th birthday I made her these cute....JUMBO cupcakes! While I was doing that Mac decided to sneak away into my moms bedroom and try his hand at painting his toenails! He was pretty proud of himself!

Fireworks: Kuna Days

McCoy watchin with daddy
They were so cool!
The fire balls

Every year kuna has its own little street fair. This year we met up with my aunt and uncle and some friends and watched the AMAZING firework show! I was quite proud, McCoy loved them! And despite them being so loud he didn't even care! He thought they were awesome!!!

Coloring Cat-Tails...An Interesting Activity!

Growing up, I can remember every year going and picking Cat-tails in the country to color them! I know it sounds a little weird, Matt thought it was crazy! We were driving out in Kuna and I saw some on the side of the road! I told Matt to pull over and hand me his pocket knife. So i chopped some down! I thought since McCoy is 2 now he would probably enjoy it! So, we got out the Crayons and the butter knife, and started shaving and coloring away! I was right...Mac got a kick out of it!
I thought I would throw in a few pictures of Madden, since he has found his tongue and all! He is a total crack up!

He Liked using the knife!
Doing a great job
The finished product! Not bad for his first time around!
McCoy loves his baby brother!

This summer we have been trying to go to the Drive in atleast once or twice a month! It is so nice, because we can take the kids and we dont have to worrie about them being too loud and bugging other people! And....Its cheap, seven dollars and you can bring anything u want for snacks!


McCoy has such a whitty personality! He finds that while playing on the Slip N Slide, it is much more fun to be a "naked boy" as he calls himself! So I thought I would snap a couple of blackmail pictures for his prom date! Haha!!! He seriously keeps Matt and I on our toes!

And again...

I just love to take the boys to the park! McCoy Loves Settlers Park in Meridian! We go atleast twice a week. I have to say it is an awesome park, something for everyone to do! So I thought I would share some pictures of a couple different trips we have had!
