Kolby is 3!!!

It's official!  My little sister isn't so little anymore- she's 3!  She had a really fun birthday weekend, and (if I do say so myself) I was a pretty awesome big brother during all of it.  It was fun watching her get so excited about it being her special day!  We celebrated with a family birthday dinner with Nana/Papa and Debby/Dida on Saturday night, and then she had her "girls" over on Sunday afternoon for a party!

Happy Birthday Kolby Girl!

Xander is 5!!!!!

It's official!  I am 5!  Pretty big time, I know.  I had a really fun birthday week- it was all about airplanes this year!  We had brunch last weekend at Centennial Airport to watch the planes take off and land- thanks Nana & Papa!  Then on my actual birthday I had a party at school and then we went with Debby and Dida to Big Bills Pizza- yum!  Today was my birthday party and it was so much fun!  I had a bunch of my buddies come over and everyone brought an airplane or helicopter to play with.  We had Subway for lunch and yummy cake!  Being a 5 year old sure is fun so far!  Now if I could just stop sucking my thumb...

My new dog Fuzzy...

Kolby peeking on craft time at my party...

Making our airplane craft!

Mommy made me a super fun helicopter/airplane cake!

What?  A family picture where everyone is looking AND smiling?  A birthday miracle...
Thanks everyone for a great 5th birthday!!!

It's been awhile...

Well, haven't I just been the all time blogging slacker!  I guess that's what happens when you are a busy man of 4 and 3/4 years old.  Whew!  Let's see, I'm in school, I go to Junior Music Academy, I do my chores, watch my shows, and then there was the whole "moving to a new house" deal.  Needless to say, it's been a full couple of months!  

Anyway, enough of my excuses, here's some shots of what we've been up to... Merry Christmas to everyone!!!

 Yep, Kolby is still obsessed with PINK!  When we ask her what she wants for Christmas, she either says, "Pink!" or "Pink Legos"...I decided to use some of my money to get her the legos for Christmas- I can't wait for her to open them!

Today, I played Joseph in the Christmas Show at my school.  What?  Who says Joseph can't wear Nike shorts and Spider Man shoes?  Mommy thinks this picture is hilarious- Mary looks scared, and Joseph unsure how to comfort her... 

 Ok, fine, I admit it, I've been making this face a lot lately.  We call it my mad face, and the other day when Mom had had enough she told me to make the face and then she took my picture- I have to say I kinda scared myself!  I'm trying not to get so frustrated and use my words instead.  It's hard.  Just like trying to kick the thumb-sucking habit.  Hard.  Don't wanna do it.

Got some pretty fun cousin time at Thanksgiving with River!  We even got to meet Chip at the Buffs game!  Kolby was super scared of him, but River and I thought it was so cool to high five him, hug him, and do a picture with him!  Go Buffs!

Catching Up...

Whew!  Can you tell school has started and my schedule has gotten busy?  I am in school 3 days a week so not as much time to blog...sorry!  But, I'm back with a few photos of stuff we've been up to.  Getting excited for Halloween, playing in the leaves, and it might even snow here this week! 

 Kolby hitting the farmers market in style with Mommy...

 Touch-a-Truck!!!  We got to climb in a firetruck, zamboni, ambulance, street sweeper, and some tractors!

 Go Buffs!  They need our help this year!  We went to the game on Saturday- we saw the band, Ralphie, and even tailgated!  Woo hoo!

 Fun in the leaves!  Kolby and I raked leaves, jumped in the them, pushed them with our trucks, and had a blast!  Oh, except for when I accidentally hit Kolby in the eye with the broom handle...not pretty.  But she recovered quickly as you can see below...

last week of summer...

Well, I guess it's kind of the last week of summer...doesn't feel like it because it's still warm/sunny, but school starts next week!  I'm in Pre-K and Kolby is doing a 1 day playschool.  I can't wait!  Here are some pictures of what we've been up to- lots of adventures before we head back to school!!!

 Kolby is now sleeping in her big girl bed!  She totally loves it and doesn't even try to get out!

 On Wednesday, we went with Mommy and Debby to Berry Patch Farms and picked strawberries- yum!

 On Wednesday, Daddy surprised Mommy with a date night...4th row at the Mumford & Sons concert at Red Rocks.  Apparently, that is AMAZING...I am more of a hip hop fan myself, but they said the concert was the BEST!

Since it's never too early to start thiking Halloween costumes, here's mine!  I finally completed my cowboy look from camp by getting authentic cowboy boots this week!  Yee Haw!

More pictures from camp!

Hey Hey!  It's been another great week at Crooked Creek!  Here's more of the adventures we've been having...
 Playing soccer with my new buddy, Brendan-he's really good and is helping me learn more about soccer!

 Here's Kolby coloring with Miss Lydia- she's from Tennesee and Kolby loves her! She's also mommy's running buddy at camp!

 Argh!  The campers gave us pirate "booty" from the volleyball tournament yesterday!

 Yep, this camp has some pretty AMAZING views!!!

 Today was Daddy's day off, so we went to Winter Park Ski Area and played!  Daddy and I did a maze, and we all had lunch!

More fun at camp!!!  Playing superheros, checking out the maintenance shed, and Mommy's friend Leslie (and her daughter Andy) came to visit!  I don't have any pictures, but today Dida came up to visit too- we had so much fun!  We did legos, went on an adventure hike, and ate BURGERS for lunch!!!  Thanks for coming to see us, Dida!  Double!
