Some updates

My sister Heather is in Africa right now.  She’s totally awesome!  So I’m going to be a better blogger for her! :)  Here’s to 3-4 posts a week!

Jaxon’s 1st ever field trip.

When I woke up and it was pouring rain, my willingness to volunteer for Jaxon’s pumpkin patch field trip seemed very foolish.  But how could I miss such a fun day for my little guy, so we all got bundled up, and make our way out into the Oregon rain.  It turned out to be not as bad as I thought it would, which was nice.   Overall it was a fun morning!

We got this in the mail the other day.  I must say, it was pretty excited for me to see Dr. in front of my hubby’s name.  Can’t wait for June!!!022

Jaxon’s birthday.  Okay, this one will get it’s own post eventually, but here are some cute pictures for now.

Decorating Pumpkins.  I love this tradition.  Sure it’s messy, but it’s such a fun unique thing that you only get to do once a year.  I just love it.  And so do the kiddos.   Just look at Sagie’s smile.


Here’s me and Sage showing off our girl pumpkin.130 133

Trunk-or-treat.  Just getting all revved up for the real deal! 


Happy Halloween!

Cousin Dinner Picnic

I know this looks like a cute little thing that I did for my cute little nieces and nephew, but in reality, I just wanted to feed all 6 kids, and somehow manage to keep my house clean.  But it was so fun, it might just have to become a little good weather tradition for us.   I especially love Sage and Holly’s faces….not so sure about Connor though.  I promise he was happy before and after the picture was taken.006

A few firsts

We’ve had some fun firsts in the Christensen household, and I want to make sure I get a record of them. 

First day of dance class…September 9th, 2009106                                              She took it very seriously                       109

Sage is such a little ballerina, I wouldn’t be surprised if dancing were her thing in life.  She’s SO cute doing the little dances too. 

First day of preschool…September 17th, 2009119

Goofy picture, I know, but it’s Jaxon, what do you expect?


Here he is with his big buddy.  He has preschool at the High School and so he get’s high school students to hang out with.  He wasn’t so sure if he liked preschool in the beginning, but he’s starting to love it more and more.  And I’m lucky enough to go in every Monday to teach music to the kids so I get to see him in his element.  I love it.

First Skyping experience….September 26th, 2009006

hehehe, here’s Heather, but really she was in the Netherlands.  It’s been fun being able to use Skype to talk with my sister on the other side of the world.  Thank goodness for the internet!

First day of Art Class…..October 2nd, 2009003

Sage and I get to spend some quality time together every Friday while Jaxon is at school at her art class.  It’s so nice to have everything all set up for her, and then not having to clean anything up when it’s over.  Now I feel no need to be crafty with my kids at home! :)  Needless to say, she LOVES it, and asks about it all week long. 

In other news, we got to go to a fun pumpkin patch with fun friends today.  I loved every minute of it!

Having a girl is fun



Now I understand why it was so hard for my mother in law to cut these luscious locks of hair.


I know, because I have my own luscious locks to tempt me.  002

Unfortunately, I succumbed, and off it came.  015

Ahhhh, but look at those eyes!
