This is hilarious!! I saw this on one of my friends blog...and I couldn't stop laughing...I had to have Ryan come out and watch it too!! I love his change in expression, and how Charlie just giggles...I LOVE IT!!! Hope you enjoy it too. Guess it was on Ellen a few days ago!?!?! It's cute though!! Enjoy!!
The first couple...I tried to get him and his new friend he's found in the oven!! :) He just sees his reflection in there...so he constantly walks by and say HI or CHEESE to the baby in there!!! It's kinda cute...most kids do it in a mirror...not Klous...he likes the oven!! :)This one you can kinda see his reflection!!
Last Friday...we had Charolette over...and she had just woken up, so it was time to change her bum...well this is what I looked over and saw after I went to get the wipes!! I couldn't help but smile and get the camera!! Think he's a little jealous!?!?! He wants to be a baby too!!!
Tried to tell him that TINY diaper wouldn't fit on his BIG bum!! :)
And lastly...this weekend Ryan found this on "craig's list"...it was only $50...so we decided to get it!! It's HUGE, but is so nice to be able to close in the computer and anything else we need to hide!!! And an actual place I can put my Willow Tree Statues...it's pretty nice!! We were up 'til 3:00 A.M on Sunday morning...putting it together and trying to get all our furniture to fit in the living room!! We're getting used to it though...the whole bottom opens up too like the top!! It's HUGE!!! :) :) :)
Klous was pretty happy to have it too...he liked the keys that came with it the most though!!! Here he is saying CHEESE!!! :) Stay tuned for a video of him...I need to get something with all the cute little words he says...so we'll work on that!!!

I guess I didn't want to realize that my "baby" is getting so big!! I always thought he was still little compared to Zack!!! I still thought he had such cute little fingers and toes...but today...when this baby was here too!!! WOW...Klous is a MONSTER compared to her!!! Doesn't seem like that long ago that Klous was that tiny...but man how fast it goes!!! I was sure to tell Charolette's mom to enjoy this stage...because it doesn't last nearly long enough!!! None the less...I still love and adore my baby...and he wasn't too fond of this other baby that Mommy was holding!!! He had to do all he could to sit on my lap too!!! He was cute with her though...as you can see!!!
Zack was just as cute too...I just have to remind myself that Klous & Charolette are like Zack & Klous were when Klous was born!!! So I need to remember that they'll (well really just Klous) eventually get better with the baby!!!
Hopefully this will be good training and help for Klous to get used to having a baby around...because SOMEDAY we'd like to have another one around here!!! NO...this is NOT an announcement of any kind ;)...things not working like we'd hope...but we're still truckin' along!!!

Klous thinks the computer is simply AMAZING or something??? I don't really know?? He's learned how to climb on the chairs...stand on the chairs...reach for the mouse...and whine and scream til he gets my attention to give him the keyboard. Now I don't do that last part...but he tries...and just screams more if I don't give it to him...it's great!! Sometimes I don't see the problem with him just playing with the mouse...he's can't screw things up THAT much right!! Until he starts throwing the mouse like a ball...then it's time to get down!!! Then he screams more and very dramatically throws himself on the floor!! It's nice!!!
Anyways...here's Klous at the computer....maybe he'll be a computer genius??Cuz he looks so intently at the screen and watches what he's doing!!!
Papa Bob & Gramma Judy got him this little computer thingy...well it's what we got him with the money...and we thought he'd like it!!! Yeah...he likes it...but nearly as much as the NORMAL keyboard!! I put this one on and turn the game on...and he just bangs on the real keyboard...so irritating!!! But again...he's just cute...and has a way with that little smirk and smile huh!!! :) Gotta love him!!
Stay tuned to more posts soon hopefully!! Starting tomorrow, I'll be watching Zack everyday and another little girl in the ward...she's only 8 weeks old!! YIKES...should be interesting having these 2 boys who struggle with sharing...and now another baby!!! We'll let you know how it goes...wish me luck!!! :D :D :D

Doesn't he look so cute with the beanie on!!! Hope it keeps his ears warm!! Ha Ha :D
Then as an earlier post showed...it was Daddy's birthday this last week. We had friends and family over to celebrate with him!!! Klous was excited when it came time to eat the cake...he got pretty into it don't you think!!!
Zack-a-roni enjoyed his cake and ice cream too!!! :)
We tried to get Gavin & Klous to pose together...but they just weren't having it!!! They're not like the good 8 month olds that just sat there and looked at you!! Now they just want to GO GO GO!!! :)
Ok...here's some of the adults too!! Shauna, Jared, and Tara...we all had a good time...and hopefully Ryan had a good birthday!!! I think he did!!! :) :) :)

After Daddy left...Klous & I got all bundled up to go out and start shoveling...there must have been 3-4 inches at least by 8:00 this morning...and it was the heavy, THICK snow!! Good snowman snow!! Klous was all about helping Mommy!!!
The driveway doesn't usually seem so long...but when there's this much snow that needs to be shoveled!!
See...he's ALL smiles to help me out!!
Check out those snowflakes!!
This afternoon as it finally STOPPED...I went out to finish the last 1/2 of the driveway...then when Klous woke up from his nap, we both went out again to work on the sidewalk!!! It had to be done in shifts!! Here's the actual amount that we got...that's the sidewalk on the bottom...so maybe 6-7 inches total. It was crazy...and BEAUTIFUL!!!
Klous thought it was pretty fun to sit on the BIG mound Mommy made!!!
He just stood there while I worked on shoveling!! I thought it was a cute picture!! Look how high the snow goes on him...up to the bottom of his coat!!
Ha..Ha..Ha!!! I had to take a "snow angel" picture!!! He just laid there so cute!!!
And check out that COOL angel!!! :) Yeah for baby Klous!!!
I think he had a good time outside...what do you think!?!?!?!

Isn't he so cute...and yes...that is Ryan and not Klous!!
A little older...and just as curious as Klous is lately...Some pictures of Shauna & Ryan when they were little...kinda reminds me of Klous & Zack!!! Gotta love the faces they're making...they both look SOOO happy :)That's better!! Cheeser faces in their clown costumes!!! :)
Ok...here's some more recent ones...at least from the Ryan I know/knew!!! Here he is on his mission...that's actually my older brother on the day of HIS mission farewell!!! Our engagement picture...oh the good days!!! :)
Hotty up on the Y...after a LONG hike!!
Klous & Daddy last year at this time...
And most recent family picture!!!
Happy Birthday babe...I love you and am so so grateful for all that you do for me and our family!!! Thank you...Klous loves you as well...and we hope you have a GREAT day!!! Even though you have to be at work :(

~Getting in shape, and losing 30 lbs
~Reading scriptures daily
~Praying daily...(personal, family, and couples)
Ok...so there you go...now you can all see my goals, and hopefully I'll be able to post in a few months...that I'm achieving some of them?!?!?!
I also wanted to write on here...I need to thank my friend AnnaMarie...she's inspired me to do a "blog book"...so THANK YOU!!! She always talked about it, and it sounded to interesting...so I'm passing it along too!!! She found it on www.blurb.com and told me about it...so I checked it out today. Ever since I started this blog, I wondered how I could keep it and have it for Klous when he gets big...as well as for myself. I just figured I'd have to copy and paste EVERYTHING into Word or something and figure it out that way??? But NOPE!!! On this website, they just upload or import your entire blog...and you can pick your layouts and whatever...and make yourself a book!!! They're not priced too bad either...especially if you figure in the prices of having to print all your pictures, get the scrapbook, scrapbook supplies, and then DO the scrapbook!! So I think we're gonna go for it...just make one at the end of each year...and keep those!!! I'm pretty excited about it...and Ryan thought it was cool too...so feel free to check it out if you guys want...I wanted to share it with you, and offer it to you too!!! Hope you find it as exciting as I do!!! It'll be REAL cool a couple years down the road...to just pull it out and see all the "fun" things you did that year!!!
