These are "the buddies". You will probably see lots of posts of them in the future, because these two boys are inseparable! They are cousins, and are only 5 months apart.

"Come on buddie! Lets show them who's boss!" The two of them, showing off their big shades own the place, wherever they are!

Colby is the big buddy who is 5 months older. Cayler is the little buddy, and boy these two little guys can shake the house down! They have play dates every week, and when they see each other, their eyes light up, and they start jumping up and down shouting "buddy! buddy!" as they wrap their arms around each other.

You might wonder how two adorable little boys could cause so much trouble, just try keeping up with them for a day! :)

Parker & Ellie's baptism

Parker & Ellie got baptized on the same day. They are just a few months apart in age. They were so excited in their decision to be baptized. We were so proud of them, and what a good example they set for their younger cousins! Camrie will have her special day in less than a year. She was so excited after seeing her cousins get baptised.

Aunt Alisa & uncle Kevin were in town with their kids, and came to support the baptism.

Ashlie & Camrie posing with their perfect cousins!

Here are a few more of the cousins celebrating this special day! Way to go Parker and Ellie, we are so proud of you! :)

Of course a baptism would not be the same without the support of Grandma and Grandpa Madsen. We love you guys!

Our 2009 graduates....

We are proud to have 2 of our C's graduate this year! Camrie in 1st grade & Carsen in Pre-school. Camrie's teacher's name was Mrs. Schenk, and Camrie said her favorite thing about her was "She is the best teacher, and she is nice". Her favorite thing about the first grade was "I got to have fun".

Camrie & one of her classmates Ellie on the playground on the last day of school.

Here is Carsen & his pre-school teacher Miss Angie. His favorite thing about her was "She reads me good books". His favorite thing about pre-school was "I got to see my friends".

Here is Carsen with his favorite classmates and their mommies! :)

I couldn't help but post this picture at the end. Cayler did not go to school this year, but he sure wishes he did! Every morning when the other kids would get ready for school and leave, he would stand and the door with this backpack on, and cry & beg to go to school with the other kids... It was so cute...

Uh oh... I smell trouble

So, this is the C we find ourselves "chasing" the most! Just when you think the house is so quiet, and the kids are being so good, you walk in on this sight!

Cayler managed to open and empty 2 entire
bottles of kids shampoo into the sink. He
thought he was so stinkin' funny! I did not
see the humor. I knew at that moment,
I could either bawl my head off, or laugh
my head off.....
So, we started throwing bubbles at each
other, and had a bubble fight. It was
not fun cleaning all those bubbles let
me tell you.

She has saved all her costumes from all her dancing years, she has quite a good stash of dress ups now...

Memorial day BBQ

The buddies

We had a BBQ at Grandma & Grandpa Madsen's house to celebrate memorial day. As usual, the food was amazing and the company was amazing.
