The summer feels as if it was over before it started. However, I love the fall. I love the way the air smells and feels. Crisp and fresh. Love it love it. As much as I dislike hunting season, I think it's cause I'm jealous, I wish I could go. Hike around in camo stalking elk, incredible. Not sure about the actual killing part, I get a little emotional when they go down on the videos. Kade recently like's to watch the elk hunting videos. Those and the a bull riding dvd we have. Animals I think in general have him quite mystified.

Sunday night was actually the first time he got up into a saddle and rode on a horse. Strange and totally crazy it hasn't been sooner they are in are backyard for crying out loud. Busy I guess. It was a little emotional for me. He of course absolutely loved it. Seemed so at home in the saddle. I hope that it continues. I myself am afraid of animals. I'm afraid of dogs and cats, in fact especially never liked the cats. But now I have a little boy that loves our cat Lucy and somehow I love her too now. In fact I kinda want to get him a kitten. I hope that he continues to love the horses and be brave. I want that for him. It inspires me to be brave and get back in the saddle myself. That is the deal with Kade, he brings out the better in me.

This picture is from March. Not very recent, but hey look at me I'm updating my blog. So that's a big accomplishment for me.
I'm just listening to the awesome Idaho wind trying to bust my house loose from it's foundation. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is tired of this summer weather. If it isn't snowing, bitter cold or raining cats and dogs, its blowing. What a strange year. Thats ok though we've been having fun times anyways.

Summer lovin...had me a blast.

GO USA, this was his fireworks outfit.

Trailing a little behind that's what his long johns say.

My new windows are going in as I type. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Me and Kade are downstairs trying to stay out of their way. We've watched the fifth season of the office. LOVED IT. I'm so stoked for this season. YES I shed a tear at the end of the season finale, geez back off. We have also watched a little baby Einstein and Kade is currently enjoying the rain forest melodys of his cadillac. This is what that looks like.
Yesterday after our room windows were done I just stood there looking at them, opening it then closing it. Open close, open close, open close etc. They did four yesterday until it started blowing and raining so hard. I can't believe the difference it makes. I can' t feel the wind any more when I stand by the window and I could hardly hear the storm when they were shut. Open close, open close.....LOVE EM LOVE EM.

I have not updated my blog in a long time. I admire others who keep up with this and write such great stuff about life and family. I love to read about your lives and get up to speed with you. As for me I'm not as good at this. Wish I knew how to speedily catch you up to me if you so desired to know about me and the two boys in my life. So I thought maybe I would script one of my days and then leave it at that. Maybe that would give you a window into my life if you were at all interested.
0545 (a.m.) Woken by the squaks on the baby monitor. (Such a bitter sweet sound). Brandon had kissed me goodbye at 0400 to go hunting with his brother.
Fed Kade a bottle changed a diaper, turned off my lamp and let him go back to sleep for a while. I also went to sleep on the couch, I can't sleep in the same bed as Kade for many different reasons. Sometimes it happens and it's fun but most of the time I end up somewhere else.
0730 Laid by Kade on the bed as he watched Baby Monet and I got a couple more minutes of sleep. YES so lovely.
Changed more diapers played the usual baby stuff. Took a bath with kade, so fun.
0845 Put Kade in his cadillac and turned it on (His swing) He went to sleep.
Laundry time. Watched T.V.
1030 Abby (my sis) came over to watch Kade. Vahia Brandons friend came up and visited with us. He was staying the labor day weekend.
1100 Went up in the Hills with Bill and Jan (my inlaws) to pick choke cherries. Picked until about 1600 then we headed home.
1730 arrived home. B was home already. Kade was sleeping.
1900 Went to Cafe Rio for dinner. YUM.
2100 Put Kade to bed, B watched football, I went to sleep.
There it is I know you want to call Hollywood so they can do a movie bout the things rollin round my brain. (Did anyone catch that.....?? No? Counting crows song)
So there ya go kinda like a soap opera, if you haven't seen it in years just watch it one day and your all caught up.
Summers been great. Lots of gardening, yard work, hay and baby. I'm learning a lot about it all. I'm in love my husband and my kid we are living a pretty sweet life by my standards anyway. Catch ya up later, love ya all. Amy

Happy 4th of July!!!

I wish I was out celebrating today. But Kade is taking a really good nap and I really don't want to disturb his slumber. I"m choosing a happy baby over a sappy one..(A Boo Hoo Hoo Hooing baby if you know what I mean.)
Bath time is so fun I think he is so cute all naked and playing in the water. It's so fun.

Aunt Abby is reading Kade a really cute book
my sister Amanda found. And so appropriate for Kade whose dadddy is a cowboy. Way Out West With a Baby. It's so cute and Kade just listens to it intently.

It's getting to be about time that Kade starts pulling some weight around here so we got him all dressed for a hard days work.

Here are some recent pics, and when I say recent I mean mothers day. I have a lot of downloading and blogging and scrapping to do.
But I know what you are thinking, you've never seen such a cute little boy. I know I know I hear it all the time.
We are having so much fun. He has recently in the last couple days been grabbing his legs and feet. He just rolls up in a ball and onto his side. For a while now he has been sucking his thumb. Thats how I know he's mine. He may look like a Torngren but he sucks his thumb like his mom did. I hope he doesn't do it as long as I did. That was kind of an embarassing habit in college.

Please Vote

Kade is kinda an amateur when it comes to his hair and he would like a little input from someone else more hip and with it than his mother. So please vote on your favorite do.
