Austen and Tanner!

Yesterday Austen's basketball coach called Mike and wanted to surprise the boys with a surprise visit over to where they were making the floor for the NBA All star Game. They all had to meet up at where he works and then they headed over to see how they make it and were able to take pictures with them standing on it. Austen was so excited when he got home. He can't wait to watch the game and say that he has stood on that floor before it was sent off. Tanner was also lucky enough to tag along with his brother and get some cute pictures of them together. I can honestly say that such small things brings kids so much happiness and excitement.

The Mom Song

Can you guess what this is!

Yes, burnt macaroni and cheese, Easy Mac to be exact. I have no idea what I was thinking until my kitchen was full of smoke and the smell was atrocious. I totally forgot to put the water in before I put it in the microwave. I know how can you mess up easy mac. Well I did. My house still smells horrible. It will take days to get the smell out. Even with windows open, candles burning and air freshener.

More Pictures

Snowy Days!

Yesterday and last night we got a ton of snow. The boys have been playing in it all day. Mike and the boys decided to go out and build a snowman since it is the best snow for building a snowman. They were so cute and we dug out our snowman stuff to dress him up. The boys named him Frosty.

Pine Wood Derby 2009

Tanner had his Pine Wood Derby today and his car did very well. He took 1st in all of the races and was so excited. Mike and him worked hard on the car and wanted to make sure that it would go fast. He also got the most aerodynamic award. Way to go Tanner!

Best of Friends

I absolutely love these pictures of Jake and Carter. I think they are so darn cute and the best of buds. They play so well together and are so funny how they play. They are almost 1 year apart. Carter's birthday is on May 28, 2006 and Jake's birthday is May 19,2007. They wear the same shoe size, same height, same size of clothes well most of them, the only difference is Jake has Carter on weight by like 7 pounds. I know Jake is a big boy, but wouldn't trade him for the world. Love them both tons and it will be fun to watch them grow up together.

New Friend at the Sorensen House

So today Uncle Blake called and had a great surprise for Tanner. I had a pretty good idea when he called since he has been trying to catch one for months while he is at work. Tanner was so excited he has asked for a pet snake forever. I know call me crazy, but what do you do when Uncle Blake shows up at your house with a snake can't tell the poor kid no so I guess we will try it for awhile. One thing to remember is for some reason are pets don't last very long. We have had a hermit crab, fish, gecko and now a snake. Tanner set him up in his cage from the gecko and made a nice little home for him. So call me crazy, but I guess making your kids happy is what counts right!
