Happy Holidays...

Okay so I am really behind in the blogging world!
I don't really remember where I left off so here is
what is new in our world. Kason is practically
running! He babbles a lot! He has quite a vocabulary
too! He says Stinky, Dog, Ball, Mom, Mama, Dada,
Dad, Grandpa, Ma, Yea, Vroom, Hi, Bye Bye, waves,
signs all done, signs please, & probably more
things I can't think of right now! It is amazing how
quickly they grow & learn! He has been doing this
silly thing with his hand in front of his mouth &
makes an Indian wawawawawa sound...It is very
cute!! He is always smiling & happy as can be!
Which means our next baby will probably not be as
happy go lucky as him! We couldn't be that lucky
could we?? I think Kason needs a little brother or
sister....either will do just fine...I will keep you
posted on our luck!! Happy Holidays from our family
to yours!! We are headed to Arizona for the
Fiesta Bowl on 1/2/10 & cant wait!!!
I will be sure to add pictures after we return home!!

Kason's Owl Birthday Party!!

Well here are some pictures from Kason's
Birthday Party. The party was a blast! He
had a lot of fun playing with all the kids!
He got a little bit more into the smash cake
but still is not a fan of cake! He started
opening his presents on his own. So we
decided to let him go on ahead and open
them...it was cute!! He loved his presents!
He learned the word Balloon...he says it very
cute! It sounds kinda like Bawoon...He
also is saying Ball a lot...He loves Balls!! He has
really caught on to walking...& is not crawling
much at all anymore...I have always been
so excited for every milestone..but now I am
ready for you to slow down so Mama & Dada
can just enjoy you!! We love you soooo much!
Thank you everyone for coming...Thank you
for the wonderful gifts...We love you!
Tasted yummy!!

Mom & I made the chocolate leaves....it
was a lot of fun!!!

Kasons cake

Owl Pizza

I love the Owl Ribbon....

Love Love Love the cake!!
You can go here to find out
more about Rebecca's Cakes & Catering!
She did a great job!

Oops I started with out you!

Mikayla offering some help to the greenhorn!

He didnt sit still for long....

Right before he tried to grab the candle....
Mama was quicker!

He liked diggin in with the spoon...
He didn't like touching it with his
fingers...maybe he doesn't like to get dirty...
If that is the case he won't be a Mason...
Daddy's line of work is very dirty!

Thank You!! We didn't open all the gifts
because we are saving them to open in
front of Daddy when he gets home!
The Owl Banner Mom & I made...

Right before bed....

Happy Birthday Kason!!

Today you are ONE!! I can't believe that an entire
year has passed since you were born. We went to
the doctor for your 1 year check up today and found
out that you don't weigh 22 lbs. When we took you
to the doctor on 11-23-09
(because you were sick with a bug of some sort)
they weighed you with your clothes on & standing
up like a big boy- that must have been the reason
it was off....you actually weigh in at 20.5 lbs which
is 17.29 %tile, you measure 30.5 inches long which is
74.3 %tile & your head circumference is 18.75 in.
which is 83.91 %tile...so basically you are long,
lean, & very very smart!! Your Daddy & I love
you VERY VERY much!!! Speaking of your Daddy,
he is out of town working in Utah & misses you
terribly...he wishes he could be home with you
on your very first Birthday...When Daddy called
to talk to you tonight you were so excited to
hear his voice...you love him sooo much!!
When Daddy gets home next week he is
going to do something extra special for you
to make up for missing your Birthday & Party!
I can't wait to see what he has planned!
You are in bed sleeping right now...which is
a good thing because it is almost midnight..
Grandma is going to be here early in the
morning to help us get ready for your party!
She is even going to stay the night with us!
Well its late & this Mama is tired so Good night!

I can't believe in just 3 days our little guy
is going to be ONE! We are so Thankful
to have such a wonderful little boy! He has
grown & changed so much in the past year.
It doesn't seem like his face has changed
much though...He still looks sooo much like
his handsome Daddy! Kason's Birthday party
is going to be on Dec. 5th @ our home....
Kason was 22 lbs on Tuesday 11-23-09.
His 1 year appt. is on his B-day...12-03
I will update his %-tiles then! People
keep telling me his is tall...so I can't
wait to hear what his pediatrician has to say!
I can't wait for his Owl Party...even though
he won't remember it...I sure will!!!

Here I am!!!

Kason's 11 month pictures

Auntie Kyla took Kason's 11 month pictures yesterday
@ her studio. They turned out AMAZING as always!!
Kason's Birthday Party is going to be an OWL theme...
We are planning his party on 12/5 @ 5 pm @ our nest!
We are going to serve Pizza, snacks, & of course CAKE!
I will get his invitations out soon...I am still a little
baffled that he is almost one! Where did the last year
go?? A few updates...Kason is taking a few steps a lot
more often than he has before...He said NO today...I
think he repeated it after me...I don't think it is the first
time & know it won't be the last...He loves playing with
the punch balloon Justin & Jill gave Kason @ Mavericks
B-day party...Todd said he played with it for an entire
hour today with out breaking his concentration...that is
a very big deal...considering his attention span is usually
very short...Back to Kason's pictures...you can view them
here! Enjoy!

My Crib Rocks!!

I almost forgot to mention Kason slept in
his crib last night from 10:45 pm to 5:15 am!
It is only the second night he has slept in his
crib...so far so good! The first night he slept
from 8:30 to 1:00ish...We will see how he
does tonight.. Nite!

Lil' Stinker

Kason was a skunk for Halloween....He looked
so stinking cute!! Here are a few pictures that
I took at Benji & Kylas right before the kids
went trick-or-treating...I didn't take Kason
trick-or-treating...since he is too young to eat
candy! Next year I will take him though!
Hope you had a Wonderful Halloween!!
I didn't get a picture of Camden...because
the battery died on the camera...he was a
cute little football...Kyla got some pictures
of all the kids & will post them as soon as she
gets a chance too....
Kason was not feeling photogenic....

No more pictures Mama!

Hanging out with Keaton...

Getting some love from Tiana!

Tiana, Kason & Keaton

Kason today you are 11 months old! We can
hardly believe that 11 months have passed since
the day we were blessed with you!! You are such a
BIG BOY....not to mention absolutely adorable!!
It is kinda crazy how often complete strangers
tell me how cute you are....no matter where we are..
you always seem to catch peoples attention!! We love
your smile...your laugh...how you are always happy...
we love that you are finally sleeping in your crib..
(We miss our little snuggle bug though!!!)
You have the cutest monkey walk...you love to cuddle
& we love to cuddle you too!! You are so sweet...
You love animal crackers.....you love to chase us around
the house...You love your binky...hopefully you will
wean yourself!! :) You love to clap & high five....

Soo BIG!!!

Well its about time we updated the Blog!
Our home is germ free & Kason is finally
eating normal again! This weekend Kason
reached a few milestones...He has officially
taken a few steps...on a couple separate
occasions! He claps non-stop! He said
Grandpa today (to his Gpa Sorenson)
...a few times...then continued to say
Pa Pa Pa...He waves and says Bye Bye!
Our little boy is just not so little anymore!
Kyla & her parents took our family pictures
today. It can be a little trying to get
5 grand kids under 3 (well Keaton just
turned 3) to all look @ the camera &
smile...But we survived & it was
a lot of fun! The photo shoot included
Gma & Gpa Sorenson (Gary & Sue),
Uncle Benji, Auntie Kyla, cousins
Keaton, Tiana, & Camden. Uncle
Tom, Auntie Shanna & cousin
Remington, & of course our family
of three! Well Halloween is this Friday
& Kason is going to be a Skunk!
So stay tuned for some pictures of
our Lil Stinker!!

Under the Weather...

Our poor little monkey has the flu. This
is the first time he has gotten the flu.
We are really glad he is almost 1 & no
longer feels like a baby! It is really heart
breaking to see your child sick & there is
nothing you can do but comfort & love on
them! I thought he had thrown up a time
or two before, but now I know that was
just a lot of spit up because you know
when your child throws up! Right after
I grabbed a bowl for him he had a
blow out too! I haven't had to scrub
pj's & change one of those since before
he started eating baby food! Don't miss
it much either!! I just want my little
Monkey to start feeling better soon!!
On a better note...he is now saying Dog
& YEAH!!! He pretty much screams Yeah!
He said Dog for the first time yesterday.
My cousin Amanda's daughter Mikayla
was playing with him & she said Dog
& he repeated her...he surprised her
so much she said "Kason did you just
say Dog?" He replied with YEAH!!
It was sooo cute!! He has been saying
Yeah for a couple weeks...So all together
he says Momma, Dada, Dog, & Yeah.
We love you little Monkey....

Weekend Getaway...

We went to Cascade for the weekend &
stayed in a lovely cabin by the lake. We
had a wonderful time & wish it had not
gone by so quickly...Kason had lots of
fun playing with new toys and crawling
around an unknown place filled with
surprises & wonders. I made pancakes
while listening to Frank Sinatra on a
record player...I really wish we had a
record player @ home...Todd worked
while Kason & I spent some quality
time together...Todd is laying stone &
putting stucco on an exterior wall for
the couple that own the cabin..It is
really looking lovely too! My husband
is the best Mason around!! I will post
pictures tomorrow after I get a chance
to upload them...right now its bath time
for little guy..nite nite

As for these boots...I have been drooling over
them for about a week..I am trying to convince
my husband they are the perfect birthday gift
but that ruins the surprise...so someday I will
own a pair like these lovies above...you can
find them here!
