Hey batter batter.....

Aiden playing first, and his buddy Ethan just made a hit and got on first. It took them both a minute to realize they were both there. :)

Poor Uncle B

Uncle Bernie (aka Uncle B) getting attacked by his fan club! Chloe in the pink and Brinlee on the left. Don't ask me why Chloe has a stocking cap on. She is crazy. They love their Unlce B and would never let him out of their sight!

Twisted Up

Aunt Marsha and Aiden playing Twister
Aunt Marsha and Uncle Bernie came to visit us again, but only for a short time. Aiden LOVES it when they come! Aunt Marsha gives Aiden extra special attention and he has a blast when she is around!

Chef Aiden Making Brownies

Over Spring Break Aiden wanted to make brownies. He has his own little apron that I got him in Verona (it has a bunch of different scooters all over it) and he LOVES to help me out in the kitchen. Reminds me of when my grandma taught me how to cook and bake. And by the way, the brownies were delicious!! Good Job Aiden!!!

Splish Splash I was takin a bath...

Easter Egg Hunt April 4, 2009

Aiden reluctantly posing with the Easter Bunny and his buddy Kyla (he has come a long way since Chuck E Cheese, right Uncle Randy and Aunt Julie?!)

Aiden still searching for the "special" egg

We took the kids to a base sponsored egg hunt. It was SO much fun! It was a beautiful day (about 70 degrees) with lots of sunshine! We joined our friend Cassie and her daughter Kyla and the kids had a blast! This was the first time for Brinlee and Chloe and they had no problems catching on. In fact, they got WAY more eggs than Aiden. He was too busy trying to find the "special" eggs that were advertised. I have no idea what was in the special eggs, as we never did find one. However, they all got lots of candy and fun little toys.
The Easter Bunny was there, as well as Barney (not sure why), a Tiger (not sure about that one either), a kitty cat, and another bunny. Aiden wasn't too excited about posing with the Easter Bunny, but I made him. He has issues with characters. He freaked out when we were at Chuck E Cheese in Boise one time and Chuck E put his hands on Aiden's shoulders, and has never recovered.
We are looking forward to the real Easter Day, and plan to spend it with Cassie, James, Kyla, and new baby Nolan.

Aiden's first T-ball Practice
March 30, 2009


After thinking loooooong and hard about it, we decided to take the kids bowling. My main concerns were, "Will the girls run down the lanes after the balls? Will they throw the bowling balls at each other? Will they be able to take turns or will they bite each other and Aiden in order to bowl?" But after much consideration and a huge desire to get out of the house, we went. All went well and no one ran down lanes, threw bowling balls, or bit. We had a great time and even managed to eat lunch there! I think we might even try it again! Aiden came out with a 95! All by himself ( and the bumpers!). He was SO excited!

p.s. (Sorry the pictures aren't that great-I used our old camera and most of them came out blurry. )

Basketball 2009

Aiden participated in the Youth Program basketball on the base this year. It was our first try at sports and he did pretty well. He decided he didn't really like it because, "Mom, it is hard to dribble and run." Also according to Aiden, "The other team has bigger players and they think it is football, not basketball. They knock us down". The most exciting part of the whole season for him was getting a gold medal after his last game. He wore it for 3 days straight.

Kyla's Adventure at the Hamilton Household

Our friend Cassie, new baby Nolan, and big sister Kyla
We got to take care of our friend's little girl Kyla when they had their baby late March. Aiden and Ky are good buddies and when our three girls are together, it is like WWF! It is hilarious and fun. They all love each other, but the girls all have strong personalities and are very "opinionated" and protective over their belongings!
Baby Nolan is beautiful and healthy and we are so happy for them!
