Kason is 2 months old. He is in control of the house. He is not always happy, but still has everyone jumping for him. Kendall and Keaton are great, always there to pick him up! This is almost his smile, we really have to work for the smile, and today I guess I was not that funny.
Keaton's 1st grade class had a trip to the ASU petting zoo. Kenslee got to go with us. The kids had a great time! This is some of the boys and Mrs. Aranza ready for the hay ride! Kenslee got so excitied when she saw the very big turkey! She was right in front of the turkey they were really watching each other!
Easter morning was a little hectic! We found all 4 baskets filled with goodies. Everyone was happy and they even had some chocolate before church. Kason just had a bottle, he pretty much slept through it. We all made it to church almost on time. Ha After church we went out to eat with mama and grandad, Mike and Judith, plus the Malone's. Since it was raining and nasty outside we went to the gym at school to do a quick egg hunt for the kids. I did try to take some pictures of all the kids dressed, but getting four to pose is out of the question. These are a few of the better ones. Everyone is counting how many they found except Kendall who is playing with her volleyballKenslee happy to find a egg!!!
Kendall and Keaton's class are Book Buddies this year. They pair a 5th grader with 1st grader and they read together. The classes get together once a week. Kendall loved it when she was the younger one just as much as she loves taking care of the little one. Keaton has a blast with his as well. This was their Easter party together. The 5th grade hid eggs for the 1st grade then helped them find them. Kendall with her Book Buddy and below is Keaton with his
We can't believe a month has already went by!! There has not been much sleep in this house, but it is improving. Last night everyone slept ALL night for the first time in more than a month. Rich and I didn't know what to think this morning. Kason is not crying as much. His clavicle that was fractured in delivery is healing, and after giving up nursing with two babies, and being on the third formula he is doing better. The rest of us are adjusting too. Kendall and Keaton are great, they both help so much. Kenslee really is doing good too. She does not want to get far from mommy and daddy but we understand. We have been busy, Kendall's JO volleyball has ended and Keaton's boy's club basketball has ended so maybe if we slow down we can get a routine started. Keaton does have baseball starting, but that is it. I hope to stay more up to date soon.

Kendall played jo volleyball again this year. She loves it and we love watching her! Her team had a great year and awesome coach. Thanks Anna!!! I only missed one tournament, the weekend before Kason was born, of course they placed 1st there. Kendall can't wait to play next year!
The whole gang! Kenslee had big sister Kendall teaching her about hunting for eggs! Keaton is a blur in all the pictures, he moved too fast for me Kason's 1st Easter his daddy thinks he will hate me for this outfit
We had a great time with our friends at church. It rained that morning so they moved things inside. The kids did not care, they all had so much fun anyway. Kendall enjoyed helping hide the eggs, and showing Kenslee just what to do!
Keaton YES HE SCORES! Keaton has loved any ball since he was a baby, and still does. He just finished boys club basketball. It was a little crazy with games, new baby, homework etc., but we LOVE watching our kids play. It has so far, always been a great time. His team had super coaches and taught them a lot. He will now go right to baseball, but he is already missing basketball.
Kason arrived on March 4,2009. He is a very big boy, weighing 10.5 and 21 inches long. We are happy to have him here, Kenslee is still a little unsure at times. We knew it would be busy with him, but it is even worse than we imagined. We are loving it, we wouldn't do without any one of them! Here is some hospital photos we will post some more later.
This was a CRAZY week! We were like everyone else we lost our power about 9:00pm Tues night. We have a gas fireplace, so at least we were warm. On Wed, Rich bought a generator to hook up refrigerator and microwave and some lights, plus the TV. No cable, but the kids could play games and watch movies. We are all not roughing it people. We are wimps we admit it! I said if this ever happens again we are heading south till it is over! To make this even better Kendall had been sick, and starting to feel better, but by Thursday Kenslee was not herself. Our power returned Thursday night(note 2 days with admission of being wimps!) Friday morning Kenslee was running fever, after a trip to Dr, we know she has her first ear infection and probably RSV. This is actually her first illness that needed treatment, we do feel lucky for that! The antibiotic for ear should treat anything for RSV so we did not have to have tests or x-rays. She really felt like Kendall had it, but older kids seem to just have cold with coughing. She said if Kenslee got worse call her but for now we were good. On Sunday I was worried, but by Monday morning Kenslee is returning to her full of life self. She is still real congested, and coughing, but is improving!
Ok thats all my whining! We do feel so lucky, no damage and we really had it much better than most! We pray everyone else can survive until their lives return to normal. My family at Senath, are looking at 6 weeks of this, so I should not complain. Kendall and Keaton did take some cool pictures, I will post those later.
Sorry it has been so long, my laptop has passed on. For now we are sharing! We think we have found a name , Kason Thomas. I finally had everyone vote this was our pick, unless we change our minds in the next 7 weeks.(hopefully less than 7 weeks) We are all getting back in routine of school. It is very hectic as usual, I will try to post again soon
