Family Update!!!

Wow! It has been a while since I have blogged! I am going to start it up again and will try my best to update at least once a week.

Ryan- Got a promotion at work and is now a Project Manager. He started a few weeks ago down in Nogales, AZ. He has rented a house with 2 other co-works on the project. He gets to come home on the weekends. He went to Colorado in October for a hunting trip. He shot a big 5x5 Elk.

Jack- Started Kindergarten in August and loves it very much. He is a Yellow Cheetah Belt in Karate now and just had his Graduation today! =) He is currently taking a Golf Class once a week at school. This upcoming Monday will be his last class until after the Holiday's. He is doing very well and has improved so much since the first class.

Gillian-Is currently taking a Petite Ballet class and loves it! She loves to perform dance and sing!

Kristin-Let's see besides being a taxi for my kids and all their activities. Who would have thought it would be so busy for them at 2yrs and 5 yrs! I watch up to 5 kids during the week. (Not including my own) and my photography business is starting to take off and I have been pretty busy with that.


We are all doing great and hope you all are too!


I will try and add pictures very soon!

Grandma and Grandpa AKA G.G. and Papa Visit

February 9-12, 2009

We had the pleasure of having Grandma and Grandpa Schroeder come and stay with us for a few days. The kids were so excited to see them. About 5 minutes after arriving the kids had them reading to them. We did a lot of bird watching, went for a few short walks and then took a drive up to Sedona and up to Flagstaff. That was such a beautiful drive, there was about 6 inches of snow on the ground in Flag so pretty. Gillian got to play in the snow for the very 1st time.

While Jack was at school we went for a drive around Anthem and then we stopped at our favorite hiking area to bird watch. It was very cold and windy so the bird stayed hidden and we left early.

Papa ended up taking Gillian on a short walk.

"Privacy Mom"
April 21, 2009

So I put Gillian on the potty and she looks at me and says "Privacy Mom!" SO I say "OK"
I walk out the bathroom and shut the door. I start to unload the dishwasher when I hear a lot of noise coming from the bathroom. I quietly peek in on her to see what Miss Gillian is up too and what did I see! She was standing on the potty taking stickers off her Potty Chart! So I quietly ran and grabbed my camera. I couldn't just leave this to memory I had to capture it.

Gillian is potty trained now! If you haven't heard already! She wears Big Girl Panties during the day and only wears Pull Ups at nap time and during the night! SO yay! Gillian!

Cooking with Gillian!
March 09, 2009

I started to make dinner and Gillian ran into the kitchen asking if she could help. We made Calzones with home made dough. Gillian help pour the ingredients into the bowl and then helped roll out the dough. We had such a great time!

Gillian rolling out the dough!

Gillian rubbed her face with her very floured hands! LOL

Look at that face!
After all the dough was rolled out Gillian wanting to play with the flour!
What a fun Mother Daughter night! I have always enjoyed cooking with Jack and now that Gillian wants to cook too! I couldn't be happier!
