RIP Santa

On September 12 we were driving in the car when the boys decided to ask me some serious questions.  First they asked if the tooth fairy was real.  I asked if they wanted to know the whole truth.  They said they did.  So I told them the truth.  They asked how the tooth box was…



Last day of school 2014

What a great year. We decided to let them do one more year of preschool instead of sending them to kindergarden early. They really loved this year, made lots of great friends and learned a ton while having fun, both at school and in the afternoons at home. First Day of school back in September…

Fire Station Open House

Today the boys went to Tempe Fire’s open house. They had a ton of fun and were the only ones there! They told the firefighters all about the fire trucks, fire safety, and that they did push-ups every day so they could grow up to be firefighters. Our local fire station even has fire poles!…




No more naps

Long time no blog, I know. The thing is we’ve given up naps. So finding the time, energy, and desire to post is hard. Matt and I both love looking back over previous years and are super bummed about our blogging efforts in 2012. Hopefully we can get back into documenting our lives. Age 3…




We’ve moved!

The last couple of months have been super hectic, stressful, and exciting. We’ve toyed with the idea of moving off and on for years. Mostly out of state. We’ve even visited some of our dream cities. After much debate and discussion we finally settled on a new city. We are in Tempe, AZ! Yup I…



10 years of awesome

im a pretty lucky guy to have this awesome woman as my wife. Better yet it has been 10 years and I still love everything about her.



Photo fun

I really meant to stay more consistent with blogging, but life has been crazy. Plus two three year olds keep me busy, busy!



Taking a walk

One of my goals this year is to spend more time with the boys without any other distractions (for me, let’s face it almost anything is a distraction to a 3 year old). I decided to start taking a walk around the block with them every day, the walk can take anywhere from 15 to…




First Dentist Appointment

The boys had their first dentist appointment last month. It went really well. Daddy walked them through the process the night before, and they were excited to meet Dr. Karen. She showed them how to brush their teeth, did a quick exam and cleaning. Ezra seemed to enjoy the whole process. Noah was a little…




Big Financial Goal Conquered

Warning this post discusses our personal finances. We usually do not discuss our personal finances, but we wanted to do a post on this subject for two reasons: A record for ourselves. Something for us to look back on and remember, we learned a lot in the last two years and would just like a…



First Hike

We took the boys on their first hike today, okay really a walk through the desert. They had a lot of fun and really enjoyed all the sand. Ezra saw his first jack rabbit, then chased after it. Don’t worry the rabbit was much faster than him. We packed a picnic lunch and the boys…



2nd Birthday Party

We had the boys’ birthday party yesterday and it was a beautiful day. We had a lot of fun and the boys were WILD. I think they were super excited to have so many of their favorite people all together. The boys received trikes from Nama and Papa (my parents) and it is one of…
