The one with the 4 year old

He is loving. He is energetic. He is a snuggler. He is a little comedian. He is athletic. He is enthusiastic. He is an artist. He is intelligent. He is protective. He is a great friend. He is passionate. He is sometimes defiant. He is stubborn. He makes my days better and more interesting. He sometimes frustrates the heck out of me, but then he'll give me his look and ask to snuggle and he melts my heart. Our family is so blessed to have Troy in our family! Happy 4th Birthday big man!!

Boise State fan since birth...whether he likes it or not! lol

The one with the nightmare and toots

In the car with Brooklyn: "Mom, do you know what my nightmare was about last night? We were in church, and you were up on stage with the choir and Carmen (my niece, her cousin) was there and her car was a hot air balloon, but they weren't in it, because they were in the church. But Carmen wanted to kill you! So I gave her a ticket, because I was a police-officer."  

And my favorite "Troyism" of the day: "Dad, hey Dad!! I tooted just like you do! You toot like that every day huh Dad?!"

Never were words so true.

The one with all the randomness

Erik's parents were in town for a few days in July while his brother received a new kidney here in Seattle. 

She's a climber! And think she is SOOOO funny!

Walking!! Hooray!!

Cute, sweet Brooklyn

Troy and his favorite pass-time: the WI

Goofy girl! She wore these the other morning for a good 30 minutes. I'd put them on, she would take them off, and then we would start the whole thing over again. Funny girl.
