Some Marriage Quiz

What is his name: Isaac Wayne Pember

How long have you been married: 5 years

How long did you date: 4 years

How old is he? 27

Who eats more? Definitely Isaac. My dad always called Isaac the garbage disposal because he always finished all the food. We never had leftovers.

Who said I love you first? Isaac did. To quote him he said, "I love you fool". I had that engraved on his wedding ring.

Who is taller? Isaac is. It seems like he keeps getting taller than me. I think I'm shrinking.

Who sings better? Neither of us are singers. We sure try in the car though.

Who is smarter? Isaac has the street smarts and I have the book smarts.

Whose temper is worse? Anyone who knows us knows it's Isaac for sure. He has calmed down over the years though thank goodness.

Who does the dishes? I do. I remember Isaac doing them once or twice when we were first married, but that ended pretty quickly.

Who cooks dinner? I usually do, but Isaac is a better cook.

Who drives when you are together? Isaac always wants to drive. I have to beat him to it and then he usually pouts the whole time I'm driving.

Who is more stubborn? Oh Isaac. I have to say I am the more laid back of the two of us.

Christmas fun

The girls and I decided to try to make gingerbread cookies this year. It didn't go well. It was a lot of work and they didn't taste very good. The girls decorated them in their favorite color so they aren't very Christmasy plus as you can see we used some of our Easter cookie cutters. We wound up throwing them away and making chocolate chip cookies instead.

Big news for Isaac

Isaac has been promoted to Supervisor at Brinks. We are so proud of him. He's only been there 4 years, but he has worked so hard and it's nice to see it pay off for him. Hopefully we'll still see him sometimes. So far he has worked some long hours.

More Aaron

I can't stop myself from posting pictures of this kid. These thermals were given to us and they are the cutest thing I have ever seen. Too bad we decided to try them on him when they barely fit. Isaac thought it would be fun to make it look like he was standing and he did a pretty good job.
This is Aaron trying squash for the first time. We have been trying rice cereal but he always gags himself. He seems to like the squash, but he still isn't sure how to keep it in his mouth. He's sitting in his new fancy highchair that I got at the Mattel Outlet in San Bernardino. We were visiting my dad over the weekend so I got to go to my favorite place, the Mattel outlet. I got the highchair and finished most of my Christmas shopping. We drove around and looked at all the old neighborhoods. It's strange to see things that are so familiar, but aren't home anymore. Isaac had lots of fun visiting with some friends we haven't seen in years. We got to hang out with Matt Ewell and Scott Peterson. It was so nice to see everyone. We had a great time.

It's been a while

It's been a while since I have posted anything so here are a few things we have done lately. Here are the girls decorating the tree. They put all the colors together so the tree looks a little weird. I keep thinking I'll fix it when they go to bed, but I haven't yet.

This is Isaac and Aaron at Thanksgiving at Isaac's aunts house. They we totally dressed the same. It made me giggle to see them matching.
This is just a cute pic of Aaron. I want to make sure everyone knows he is still a cute little boy in case you forgot.

I guess Aaron's not so big

Aaron had his 4 month check up yesterday and I was kind of surprised by how small he is. He only weighs 13.1 lbs and is 25 inches long. That puts him in the 10th percentile for weight and 50th for height. The doctor doesn't seem to worried about it, but I'm stressed trying to think about what I can do to help him gain weight. The girls are always small at their check ups so I guess I just have small children. I always figured I'd have these giants since everyone in my family is so big, but I suppose we'll just have to deal with our little bitty kids.

Halloween finally

Well, I am finally getting around to posting the Halloween pictures. It took me a while to figure out how to rotate them. I guess I'm not the brightest bulb. These pics aren't great because we took them after trick or treating. The kids were looking a little rough by the time we were done. We went trick or treating at my brother Josh's in laws neighborhood. They had fun going with their cousins. Now I just need to stop eating all of their candy. I always think I need to just eat it all fast so it will be out of the house, but then I buy more when it's gone. It's a vicious cycle. I guess I'll just have to keep going to the gym everyday.Here is our princess Lexi,
Angel Alli and
Monkey Aaron sitting on the lap of the original monkey. On our first date I remember telling Isaac he walked like a monkey. I think he's been self conscious ever since.

Alli got a new bed

We got Alli a toddler bed and put her in Lexi's room. They have been doing really well sleeping together at night. I still have to separate them at nap time though. She loves her new bed so much. Everytime Isaac calls during the day she has to talk to him so she can say "I lika my bed". It's very cute.

Pre-Halloween Fun

Here is Lexi with her painted pumpkin. I didn't have the energy to carve them this year. I think they like painting them more anyway. Alli started to paint herself instead. Good thing it was washable paint.
Here is Alli's pumpkin.
The girls have been having some Halloween fun. They made these pumpkins at the grocery store. They will watch your kids at Basha's while you shop. It is the most wonderful thing any store could ever do for me. Sometimes I take them and just walk around the store really slow so they can play there.

Aaron is turning into a big boy.

From 8.6 lbs to...

A little man. I can't believe how big he is getting. It makes me kind of sad that he isn't a newborn anymore. Everyone always says that he looks like a little man. He acts like one too. If he is hungry you better watch out. He is also so scared he is going to miss something already. His eyes never stop moving around the room to see what's happening. I think he is going to be a handful as soon as he can get around the room.

Here is Isaac and Aaron. It's still so weird having another boy in the house. I think this was the day of Aaron's blessing. I'm always trying to get Isaac to shave that dumb goatee thing. I'm fighting an uphill battle. I guess that's what I get for marrying a stubborn man.

Everybody's Blogging

We decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon. We've been looking at a lot of people's that we haven't seen in a while. It's really nice to see everyone all grown up and with their families. Hopefully I'll be able to think of things to write on this.
