The cement has been poured for the basement & garage floor. Framing is next!
Forms for the basement walls (Sept. 15th)
On Friday (Sept. 12th) the footings for our foundation were poured.
December 1st 2013 was when we started living in a rental townhome in Ankeny, because we sold our home in Polk City. There were no rentals available in Polk City at that time. Yesterday they finally broke ground on our new home back in Polk City. We have missed living back there so much! We will be the 1st house in the new Lost Lakes housing development close to the West edge of town. I will try and take periodic pics to add to this posting for the house.

1st Day of Kindergarten

Adrian's 1st Day of Kindergarten was Aug. 22nd. She was a little nervous arriving but did great! Adrian gets dropped off daily by Dad and picked up by Mom at Megan's (her old in-home daycare lady). Adrian rides the bus daily to Megan's house. Adrian is already busy and in the the full swing of things.

Tuesday and Thursday is running club in the morning. Thursday from 4:30-5:30 is Tap & Ballet class.

~ He doesn't have a wide vocabulary but has a ton of personality.
~ He loves tractors, books, dogs, and any sort of moving animal.
~He eats anything, except we have noticed he doesn't like tacos or meals with ground beef.
~He loves his big sister and for the most part they play well together.
~ He loves running around yelling with is sister...they run laps together around the townhouse.
~ He is a good napper/sleeper and is attached to his 2 blankets.

Trip to the Orchard 2014

It has been forever since I have posted anything.  So I am going to do better and try to catch up on my posts. The below pics Mitch and I took this past weekend at the orchard. We went both Sat for 4 hours and 3 on Sunday.

The kids had a good time, especially since we don't have a yard because we are renting. The orchard will be our "Fall yard" I guess.

Happy Birthday Lawson!!!!

The BIG GUY turned one last Wednesday!! He is growing up so fast...this year has just flown by. Lawson is taking on average 3-4 on his own without holding on for support. With extreme coaxing he will take more. He has figured out how to open his bedroom door and our pantry door! So it is a matter of time before he realizes he can get into his sisters room! Lawson has also learned how to open the dvd player to get the little tray to come out. Lawson (aka: lamp crusher) has managed to break 1 floor lamp and 1 table lamp (just broke out the light bulb).

Lawson was moved up to the 1yr room 2 weeks now and is doing good getting used to only 1 nap and less bottles. He still gets 2 a day so we have to work on eliminating those in the upcoming weeks.

Lawson's 1 Year Stats:
Weight: 24 lbs.11 oz. (91%) 
Height: 31.5 inches (96%)
HC: 18.5 inches (76%)

Lawson and Adrian had their school pics close to his 1 year Birthday, Lawson wasn't feeling very photogenic so we stopped in to the photo place to try and get a few redos. This was one of those :)

Random Cell Pics

Short video of the Big Guy :)

 Adrian picked out these glasses at the mall. We got some looks when we were walking out :)

A first for Adrian...last week I could not find my ring in the morning when I was getting ready for work. Come to find out Adrian got up in the middle of the night and took it from my nightstand to then hide it under hers. She gave it up easy but now I have been wearing my ring to bed to avoid another incident.

Tooth Fairy's 1st visit!

Adrian lost her first tooth Feb. 12th followed by her second tooth on the 13th! The tooth fairy left a dollar per tooth along with a purple and teal jewel. The pic below was after the 1st tooth came out while brushing and we lost down the drain :(
