Baseball with my babies!

Brent stayed in Idaho to work on a rental.  The two older girls got to stay at Grandma Telford and Papa's for the week. So, I had Braden and Kaylee Nicole at home with me.  We had such a fun time! (Minus the two mice that Braden had to carry out in traps cuz Mommy was terrified!)
One night we went to a Reno Aces baseball game.  It was so much fun!

Rental Remodel by Brent

Much to Brent's parents dismay, he is an amazing carpenter!  He can fix pretty much anything...quite the handyman, I'd say!  We don't care what Nana and Grandpa think.
Kitchen gutted.
Sub-floor is down.
Almost finished.
Sadly, we didn't get a picture of the fnished product.  But believe me, it looked amazing...brand spankin' new!

Nik Nik's "mommies"

This was Nik Nik's second time to the dentist but Brookie and Jessie took such good care of her again. They held her hands and talked to her the whole time.  It was very sweet. I think Nikki would have been fine but it was so precious I just let them "mommy" her!

Boy's Day at Wild Island

Auntie Jen Rhead took Braden and Trevor to Wild Islands for the day.  It's a water park in Sparks and the kids LOVE it. This day was just Trevor and Braden and they had a blast. Thanks Auntie Jen!

New Rooms

Room changes:  Brent agreed to let Brookie change her cute little girly room into a red and black 5 star room.  Actually it turned out super cute and Jessie moved into the room with her.  We got them bunk beds with a full size bed as the bottom bunk.  They ended up sleeping in the same bed every night anyway.  We got rid of the bunk beds in Jessie and Nikki's room and moved Brookie's bed in there and it is now  Nik Nik's room. At least we call it her room...she ends up most nights in bed with Brent and I.
Here are some before and after pictures:

Hiking with Daddy

I took Brookie to cheer and Kaylee Nicole came with so Brent could take Jessie and Braden on a hike.  Those two love hiking with their daddy.  They always find the perfect hiking stick and then look for "dead things".

Where's Nik Nik???

I was looking all around for Kaylee Nicole at the cheer gym and look where I found a cubbie.

More BMX racing

Riders Ready, Watch The Gate, BZZZZZ
Then the gate lowers and they are off!
Braden was under 7 so he had to have a helper on the gates.  He'd sneak in a few times without one and can't wait until he is 7 so he can do it by himself.
Braden's least favorite part of the track was the small jumps.  He always seemed to loose speed on these.  Mostly because he was riding on a Target Hot Wheels bike instead of a BMX bike, but it never seemed to slow him down too much!
Braden coming in first!

Happy Birthday Kenneth

Kenneth had a surprise birthday party.  It was a fiesta' and the girls had fun wearing their little hats that we brought them back from Cancun.  It was just Brent and me and the girls.  It was fun to spend some time with just them.

Hey Mom! Is my bump high enough?

I was working in the office at the computer and Brookie yells downstairs, "Hey Mom, do you think my bump is high enough?"  Me: "I don't know Brookie, let me see it. "  She burst down the stairs.  She was laughing so hard she couldn't even stand!  I was laughing so hard at her laughing! She's such a goof sometimes!

Country Superstars

Uncle D & Aunt Rhi own a share in the show "Country Superstars" in Vegas.  We got to go and have front row seats. It was lots of fun and the kids got pictures with "Brooks and Dunn" and "Willie Nelson".

Cliffs at Peace Canyon

We traded out our time share and stayed a week in Las Vegas at a Resort called "Cliffs at Peace Canyon".  It was such a fun week.  It was  relaxing and slow paced and just plain family fun!  We did ALOT of swimming.  We went to Circus Circus one night.  Went to a concert and a baseball game.  Had family pictures taken by Uncle D (stay tuned for Christmas cards).  We went to the drive in movie and did fireworks!

George Washington hair.

This is Nikki pouting.  She can't go into the pool without her floaties on and she was not happy about it! 

Circus Circus

Nik Nik's favorite thing to eat is a Popsicle.
She even ate them in her sleep.

Really Mom!!! Bridge books on vacation?!?!?

Braden's favorite spot to eat.
