A Rock Climbing Adventure!

My sister and her new husband Brandon (they were married in Sept) are always going rock climbing, they have asked me in the past to go but I always say no. I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to climbing rocks that high, what if I fell! But this time she insisted I go and promised I wouldnt fall, well not far anyway! Her Husband has been doing this for years and we just went up to Weber State they have a gym with a rock wall. It was so much fun, even my neice Carlye does it.

This is me, I only got about 1/3 of the way up the wall. It is so much harder than it looks or sounds. I tired about 4 or 5 times, but I have never done this before. Brandon says this is the part that gets you addicted, you keep wanting to "beat" the wall and I do. I cant wait to go back and try again. I might wait a while though, my arms, shoulders and legs are killing me today! It was so fun, I appreciate my sister Bobbie and Brandon for being patient with me and helping me to enjoy this sport with them. Cant wait to do it again!

This is my sister Bobbie. She got all the way up to the top. It was very high and I know it was prob hard to get all the way up there but she just went right up like it was no big deal. The first few times she only got as high as I did, but I think she just didnt want me to feel bad. Thanks Bob!

A baby shower full of babies!

We celebrated the upcoming addition to our Peterson Family "Claire" on Saturday the 21st. My cousin Julie is having a baby in July. She lives in Texas with her husband and was just in town to visit the family so we arranged to have a baby shower for her before she went home. Julie is expecting a girl, finally after all these boys we have added to our family in the last 6 months. It was great to be able to have all my cousins here with their babies so we could take a pciture.

From left to right: Truman (Amy's baby 4 1/2 months), William (Alana's baby 2 1/2 months), Matthew Dean (Maleia's baby 2 1/2 months), Caleb (Cami's baby 2 months), Rusty (My cute baby 6 1/2 weeks), Jonathan (Rachel's baby 6 1/2 weeks).
**William and Matthew were born only 1 day apart! Rusty and Jonathan were born only 13 hours apart!

As you can tell, with some of the other babies crying and being upset Rusty slept right through it all. He is such a good baby. I am so happy to have this picture with all the cute boys. It was fun to have all the babies here at the shower. Everyone always had a baby to hold!
*We are excited for the new addtions to come later this year.....Megan (due in June with Paige Ann) Allisha (due in June with baby boy) Julie (due in July with Claire) Kayla (due in August with baby girl ? name), Aly (Due in October ? boy/girl)** We are hoping for more girls with all the boys we just added earlier this year! Aly and I joked at the baby shower that if the population on this earth was coming to an end, the Petersons could re-poulate it in no time! Haha

I was "Tagged"

My mother in law tagged me. I was instructed to take the 6th picture from the 6th folder on my computer and post it and tell about it. This is Ace in the bathtub, a place he can stay for over 2 hours somedays. He loves to take a bath! As you can see he has a ton of toys in there, it has gotten worse now he can barely fit in this tub with all of them so we usually let him take a bath in our jetted tub in the master bathroom, its like a mini swimming pool for him. This picture was taken in October 2008!
**I am not sure who all reads my blog, but if you are reading this and you have a blog you are now tagged to take the 6th picture from your 6th folder on your computer and post it and tell us about it, its kinda fun....never know what picture that is gonna be!**

My Cute boys in Black & White

Rusty is now 6 weeks old and seems to be getting bigger everyday, I cant wait until the smiles he does are because he wants to smile and not just gas, like seen in this picture.

Look how peaceful he looks, but not for long Ace was helping me take pictures. So soon after Rusty was awaken by Ace jumping on the bed.

Ace always wants to get involved in everything we are doing with Baby Rusty. He is a good big brother and really does love Rusty.

Of Course Rusty was awaken by Ace, Ace thinks this is soooo funny. I was going to delete this picture because I took it on accident, but I just love the look on Ace's face, he is such a happy kid all the time.

My favorite outfit of the week!

This is my favorite outfit of the week. I love Giraffe's they are adorable especially on baby clothes. Look how cute this shirt is. Dont be distracted by extremely adorable baby that is wearing it.

Rusty doesnt like the flash of the camera that is why he has that weird look on his face, I promise he does not look like this ALL the time.

A Day at the Park

Ace was so excited we went to the park on Weds. He has been dying to go, but I just dont seem motivated to load up both kids and go to the park, today I promised Ace that we could go and just then one of my best friends Angela called and wanted to go to the park.....sometimes I swear she reads my mind. So we went and it was very relaxing, much to my surprise.

Ace was very nervous to go down the tunnel slide, I made Angela push him down, he kept backing out. I was at the bottom waiting for him, once he did it, he LOVED it. We took him down each one of the slides at the West Point Park, they are kinda big (well not this one) but the other ones are and he was very intimidated. After that he was up and down all by himself.

This is the only slide he went down on his own the first time around, the little kid slide. But he didnt like this one as much once he went down the bigger, faster slides.

Pinocchio Movie Review

As you all know I am a MAJOR movie collector! I love Tuesdays thats when all the new movies come out. last week on the 10th Pinocchio came out of the Walt Disney Vault! I was super excited, I love Disney movies and I am proud to say my adorable 2 year old Ace loves them too.
Well right after we bought the movie Ace and I rushed home to watch it, Ace had never seen this movie before since we did not previously own it and it has been in the Disney Vault for years. I was taking care of baby Rusty in the living room and I could hear Ace crying, I went into my bedroom (where Ace watches all his "shows" or movies) and he was face down on my bed crying when I asked him what was wrong he pointed at the TV it was at the part in Pinocchio when the little boy turns into a donkey! Ace was very upset! I had forgotten that there are parts in this show that may be a little scary to kids his age. Well once we discussed that this was a movie and that real little boys dont turn into donkeys he was just fine and has since watched this show about 20 times! He loves to name all the characters and the funniest one is when he tries to say Jiminy Cricket and it comes out "Jiminy Chicken" I laughed for hours. I decided to post Ace's funny sayings in a column off the right of my blog.....check them out! But As for the review I would have to say and I am sure Ace would agree with me....
*Walt Disney does it again! A wonderful show, a must see over and over and over again!
*May not be intended for small children who are afraid of being turned into a donkey!
*On sale for a wonderful bargain price at Walmart for $16.99 (the new release price) but worth every penny!
Ace and I look forward to giving you another review April 7th when the Disney Animation Collection 1, 2 & 3 come out. (Mickey and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs, and the Prince and the Pauper.

Happy St. Patricks Day!

My sister always has a St. Patricks Day party! We all look forward to it each year. I brought Rusty this year, and dressed him in green! This is my mother, my twin sister Bobbie, Me and Rusty, Carlye (my neice she is 8) and my dad in the back! We missed Matt, Ace and my brother Mike at the party, maybe next year!

This is one of our best friends Ashlee with my sister and I. Ashlee went to elementary school with us (that was ages ago) she was the very first friend I had when we moved here 20 years ago. What a great girl, she is hilarious. It is never a good party without Ashlee.

Ready for Spring!

All week long it has been nice outside, Ace was able to play on the deck in his sandbox! He loved it. But when we woke up this morning and there was snow everywhere, I figured it was another boring day inside watching movies....Ace had other plans!

He came out into the living room with his jacket on and he had put his hat and gloves on the best he could. I asked him where he was going all dressed up like that, he said "Outside to play in my sandbox" (like I was an idiot and should have known)

A little snow never stopped Ace from playing with what he wants to play with. Look at his cute smile, he stayed out there forever only coming in to change his gloves when they had too much snow on them. It is nice that he is satisfied playing on the deck since we dont have a yard yet and I am able to see him from the kitchen and living room and can keep an eye on him all the time, I am a paranoid parent about him being outside alone.

ONE of the TWO cutest sleeping babies I know!

I just thought this picture was so cute I had to post it! Rusty was up for a while this morning, he is not acustomed to our routine of sleeping in until 11:00! Ace is a pro at it. But after we all got up and got dressed for the day Rusty decided it was time for his nap. He loves his swing, which is good cause I can buckle him in and Ace cant get him out. Ace loves to go get Rusty where every I put him, even in his crib and bring him to me. But in the swing he cant get him out! It also makes me happy that the swing finally came in handy since when we got it for Ace, he hated it and only sat in it twice! Rusty is in it all the time, he loves taking his naps in there. (Dont worry I do not leave him in there all day long, he also takes naps in the bassinet and the glider and also on the couch on his Lion blanket)

Ace helping feed the starving baby!

This morning Rusty was screaming, he was starving! I could not make his bottle and get it to him fast enough. Ace went over and got his own burp rag and said " I feed baby his milk!" Ace has been very demanding lately. But I thought it was so cute I let him help.

Look how happy Ace looks, knowing he is helping. He really does love Baby Rusty!

Rusty was happy, doesnt matter who feeds him as long as he gets fed!

Me and My Boys

It was so hard getting them both to hold still and look at the camera (at least part of the way) Rusty doesn't really listen right now.....who knows if he ever will but Ace loves having his picture taken. I love my boys, aren' t they the cutest!!!

Ace loves his "Rus baby T"

Ace calls Rusty his "Rus baby T" (he tries to say baby Rusty but it comes out all scrambled up) He wanted to get in Rusty's crib today and lay with him while they watch to aquarium that is in the crib.
Look how cute they are together. Ace is such a good big brother.

He always wants to hold the baby today after I made Ace get out of Rusty's crib, I went to get the diaper bag which was in my room across the hall, I turned around and Ace had climbed back into the crib and was holding Rusty saying "here mommy" he was hanging Rusty over the side of the crib (trying to pass him to me) It was really scary, but funny at the same time. Don't worry he didn't drop him, he held onto him tight while I ran in there and took Rusty from Ace.

He loves giving kisses to everyone, including his baby brother. He has to give him a million kisses everyday, what a sweet boy!

Who can get away with dancing on the coffee table?


If you all didn't know if Ace doesn't make it as a Major League Baseball Player, he is gonna be an exotic table dancer!

Carrie and I were looking through some CD's that were not labeled and one of mine I put in and pushed play, the macarana came on and Ace busted out some moves on the coffee table. Carrie and I were laughing so hard we were both almost in tears!

Rusty & Mommy

This is me and Rusty, he is almost 4 weeks old (tomorrow) he is doing really well. He eats like a cow and is growing so much. He is very tired in this picture, I tried to get one with him awake but that is not very often!

What did we do without computers?

I was emailing Cort (my brother in law in Africa) and Carrie was learning how to style her hair since the style she is sporting in the picture is not suitable for public outings. (just kidding she wasnt looking up hair styling but I am not kidding about her not being able to be seen in public like this) Ace decided he needed to get his laptop and join us at the table. He is so smart, he will sit here for hours and play on his laptops.

Grandpa comes for a visit

Bart and Carrie came out this weekend, they have not been able to see the baby since he came home from the hospital. Bart had to go back on Sunday, so he wanted to spend as much time with the grandkids as possible before he left. I think by the time he left he was so exhausted!

Oh how it would be

Rusty always sleeps so peaceful, oh how it would be to sleep so soundly without a care in the world. He loves this blanket my aunt Julie made for Ace. It is very thick and comfy. We take it everywhere so when he sleeps he is always comfortable.

Rusty can always find somewhere to sleep if he isn't on his blanket. He has chosen Matts chest this time to fall asleep on. Matt couldn't get up, the chair was reclined and he was trying to not wake up the was hilarious!

Tubby Time

It was time for Baby Rusty's First tub time. We have been giving him washcloth baths since he came home until his umbilical cord fell off, then they said we can give him a real bath. Ace helped, he was in the jetted tub while I was washing Rusty in the baby tub on the floor and Ace filled one of his cups with ice cold water and before I new it was dumping it on Rusty's face! Rusty of course was in shock for a second, but quickly recovered, I am sure that won't be the last time Ace torments his brother!
