Merry Christmas!!

This year Santa was good to us!! We had a great holiday. Andy was here and my mom and dad flew in. Nash got his coveted DS, bakugons, race car track...and other small stuff. Mya got her Dora backpack she's been asking for, a princess pop up tent, a baby cradle and changing table, and lots of art stuff!! We loved having nanny and poppy here, we were sad to see them leave.

Since Nash got a DS, he gave Mya his leapster. She loves it!!

Mya helped me and nanny make cinnamon rolls!! yummy.

Van loves his new sitting toy!!

Tyson made this AWESOME bunk bed for Nash. The top is a twin, and the bottom is a full size. It also has a slide coming down from the top bunk!!! He did an amazing job!

After the big dinner we went sledding. The kids had a blast. Van wasn't so sure about his mittens though, but he looked SOOOOO cute in them!!!

There was a jump at the bottom of the hill and the kids would catch air. Mya giggles the whole way down, and Nash has the biggest grin ever.

Yesterday Nash was being really naughty and just complaining alot, so when Tyson had to go to walmart he wouldn't let Nash go with him. He yelled at Tyson so Ty sent Nash to his room...when tyson came home from walmart, he found this note taped to the door....

translation: For tyson
sometimes my dad is mean. i do not like my dad when he is mean. now i am sitting in my room crying, then i went outside.
and nash drew a picture of "mean dad" and nash sitting on his bed.
Now...i thought this was just adorable. And made me feel bad.

Van- 4 months old

I can't believe Van is 4 months old now!! Time really does fly by. He is the happiest, easiest baby ever. He is constantly smiling, and is starting to babble all the time. He is a mini-Tyson...they look identical. I don't know how much he weighs yet, but he is definitly getting chunky (its about time). I love you my little bubba!

Side note...I have NO idea why these pictures uploaded so crappy. Sorry about the pixelated pics.

Georgia & Orlando trip

This last week I was able to go to Atlanta to spend the week with my family then drive down to Orlando to see my little brother Brett get married. It was wonderful. The wedding was BEAUTIFUL, the bride was STUNNING, and the weather was PERFECT!!!

Here is Brett and Sarah dancing their first dance!

I had bought a new dress for the wedding and I didn't put it on until the morning of. Well to my surprise...the SECURITY TAG WAS STILL ON!!! I was so upset. What could i do?? I didn't have time to go find a store to take it off so I had wear it THE WHOLE DAY!!!!! To the temple, the ring ceremony and the reception. I felt so dumb......

Van loved to sit on poppy. We would be so comfortable and fall asleep like this. SO CUTE!!!

Mya swimming in Orlando at our hotel. We could still swim at 9:00 at night cause it was still so warm!!! AHHHHH....heaven!

Nash's triatholon

Nash competed in his first triatholon today. He did so good. We were really nervous for him cause he's so competitive and we were worried that he would be mad if someone passed him, or if he got tired he would want to stop. But he didn't complain once, and did awesome. They set it up really good....there were 180 kids competing and they staggered the races so you wouldn't know if someone passing you was from your group or another group. The race was not timed, so that helped.

Here's Nash ( i know...it doesn't really look like him) and his good friend Cam before the race started. Swimming was first, and they swam 50 yards.

Nash is the one in the front!!! He's always been a good swimmer so this was his best event. He came in 1st of his group!

Here he is in the biking part. They had to bike .8 miles.

After biking was the last leg of the race....running!!!! He had to run 1/2 a mile. He was smiling the whole time!!!

Nash and Cam at the finish line!!!!! GOOD JOB NASH....I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!

August pics

We blessed Van on the 16th. Tyson did such a wonderful job. My dad told me afterwards that Van had woken up at the beginning of it and was smiling throughout the blessing.

I know this picture is really small...but it is really cute of the kids. Maybe if you click on it, it will enlarge???...

We also had our Leishman family reunion at the beginning of the month. We stayed at an awesome cabin in Island Park. Nash's favorite thing was to ride this dirt bike. It was just his size. I wasn't sure if he'd be able to balance it right, but he got on and just took off! Tyson was sure proud of him!!!

Mya and Van

Mya's favorite thing is to hold Van. She will hold him for hours....seriously. So, I have recruited her as my little babysitter. If I need to cook, or put something away...I just get Mya and she hold him for me. She never complains or gets bored. Its great! And Van is such a good baby, that he doesn't ever mind it either...even when she tries to "play" with him.

Summer fun!

Nash lost his 2 bottom teeth!! He was soooo excited, he told everyone he saw for 2 days!

the kids and tyson "camped" out in the backyard!!

we've been boating a lot lately and the kids have loved every minute of the lake. Tysons parents have this thing they made loke 20 years ago to teach their kids how to water ski, and so we pulled it out for our kids. Nash was able to get up on it by himself, but Mya needed help from Ty. So they just sand on this board and hold on to the ropes and get pulled by the boat!!!
