the next karate kid

Nathan got his uniform during his last class. He was SO excited to get it I had to put it on him before class started.

busy week

This week I finally got all the boys school pictures back!  It's hard to believe all 3 are in school....David is in 7th grade, Thomas in 1st and Nathan is in preschool.

Nathan has some exciting news....he has officially started karate!  He LOVES it!!  He is going to the same place that Thomas goes.  His class is him, and three other boys all that have birthdays within 3 months of eachother.  
 This picture is blurry, but it is of him running during warmups...I just love his happy face!  The lower one is him working on his high block.
 One of Tommy's training wheels fell off yesterday!  Guess it's time to take them off and figure this two wheel stuff out!!  I think he'll do great...his training wheels are up so high they don't touch the ground at all when he rides, they just keep his bike upright when he starts.
 Tonight (yes, before Thanksgiving) we went to Bass Pro Shops to see Santa.  The little boys LOVE going to "Santa's house" Nathan's favorite of course, was the train set up
 and the talking/singing reindeer
 the boys picture with Santa!  ALL of them smiling!!  Kinda sad, no one was afraid of Santa this year!  All the boys talked to Santa and gave him their requests, and both little boys climbed right up in his lap.  I'm excited to see what they do on Christmas Eve!!

catch up....again

For Halloween this year Thomas wanted to be a dog.  But when it came time to wear his costume decided that he only was going to wear the head & paws....

 and Nathan wanted to be a garbage truck.   Ever try to find a garbage truck costume?!  Impossible!!  I did not have the time to make him a garbage truck costume this year and was trying to figure out what I could convince him to be.  When we were at Disneyland in October next to our hotel was a huge Halloween store that we checked out and found a dump truck costume for Nathan!  He was thrilled with it!

  David decided he was to old for Halloween but wanted to get a mask to scare kids trick or treating

 The boys ready to go...

 We have been LOVING the weather in Vegas these last few weeks!  We have gotten to play outside a lot and finally start enjoying the swing set, trampoline and other fun toys out back.  Nathan loves to lay in the saucer at night with me.

 Of course we have been going non-stop with baseball.  We just finished our Veterans Day tournament, David's team finished in 6th place.  The boys played great and are really coming together as a team.  At their practice before the tournament this last week David was up to bat, swung at the pitch, hit the ball and broke is metal big barrel bat!  Luckily it is only a few months old and the company is replacing it!
