How is this possible?

This is how I found the boys last night when I went in to test Ethan. I don't understand how this happens. Why is Ethan in Cohen's bed? Why is Ethan's arm on the wall? How does Cohen sleep with his legs dangling off the side? Isn't he cold? Weird kids.

Cohen turns 4

This past week we celebrated Cohen's 4th birthday. I can't believe this kid is already 4. I still think of him like a toddler...

But he's grown, he's in Pre-School three days a week and loves it! He loves Legos like his older brother. He has started asking the meaning of things and what signs say. He's brave and silly. He's loves to cuddle and still takes naps. He will hum/sing along to any song that's on. He is a good sharer and doesn't like to disappoint me. Cohen is a very happy kid and I am so thankful to be his mom!

Cohen thought it would be a good idea to go to CPK and then on a Ferris Wheel ride at the Spectrum. I think he had a great birthday. He really enjoyed the frosting but hardly touched the cupcake.

Think this would go well with my new cookware?

I think not, however, I am kind of liking this and I am seriously AFRAID of color. And by color I mean REAL color... that isn't neutral. We used FLOR tiles in Cohen's nursery and would use them again in a heartbeat.

Make a mental note: future housewarming gift....

Please tell me you all noticed this new set of Le Creuset cookware on the cover of the latest Williams-Sonoma catalog. I am drooling.

Kind of loving this...

It's $360 but who's counting! The fact that the Packers are represented is reason enough. However, I'm not sure we have room here at Casa Brown. Do you think it's weird that a purchase like this is what it takes to get me to find a place to buy/rent? But seriously, how many minutes do you think the boys would actually spend in these, 5? 10? 15 minutes? They can't even sit down at the dinner table, they eat while standing, my newest/biggest pet peeve since having kids.

don't you love how the pictures are hung about 12" from the floor. weird.

Any guesses?

Any guesses what the boys are going to be for Halloween? 1 down, 3 to go.

This might help...

Balls is having a BOY!

The name is chosen, Hank Kenneth Oliver. A little different than waiting till two days after Anne had Lucy to find out what her name was. Molly's shower was at my parents house last weekend. Friends from college, high school and the Irvine stake came to celebrate. I was in charge of dessert, cookies of course. Anne made some yummy orange rolls, Mom made the diaper cake and Martha made the Hank decor. It was a pretty chill shower. I didn't take too many pictures, sorry Molly. I know Martha has a lot more. I didn't even take pics of the burp cloths I made. Oh well.... can't wait to meet the little guy in a few weeks!!

Cohen's first field trip

Last week Cohen's preschool class visited the Portola Hills Fire Station. I don't know where he heard this from but as we were driving up to it he said, "mom, is the fire station open for business?" I about died. Such a funny kid. It was his first time at a station so he was pretty excited. He even got to sit in the truck!
