Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen

video

A little video for Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen. Just cause we haven't seen them in a while, and Kasen misses them! And the one where he is going in circles is just funny because he always does this then gets so dizzy and like usual runs into the wall or falls down pretty hard. But he loves it!

Just some Pics

Just a few pictures that I have. I haven't really taken that many pictures, and always forget to take some when we are actually doing something. Here is a picture of the guys winning the championship. They are pretty happy, even though this is late news, I thought I would share one anyway!

Kasen in the laundry basket. He loves being up here and "helping" me with the laundry. He is so fun!
Having fun doing laundry!
Kasen and Daddy reading stories before bedtime. He is making this face because he is saying "horses" but he says it in this really silly low voice. It's funny! He just stared doing it..so now Tate and him both like saying it silly.

Tagged 4th Photo in the 4th File

So I have to post the picture that is on my computer in the 4th file and the fourth photo!
Tate with one of his hunters this fall. He had such a good time doing what he loves. He lookes good in Camo! I have lots of pictures of him and Kasen but none with any of us together. I need to work on that. I am in South Dakota right now and going to be going home tomorrow. I am so excited to see Kasen and Tate. I love when Kasen sees me for the first time when I have been gone for a while. He doesn't quite know what is going on. I miss that little man. Thanks for all the people who help watch him...mostly Lex and Clayt you guys are the BEST! Thanks!

*Boring Post Ahead* *More of a journal type entry* This week has been pretty fun. We got back from our trip Sunday afternoon, so that was good to get home early. WE didn't do so hot on this road trip, we lost by 3. We go to North Dakota and South Dakota this weekend, where I hear it's really really cold! So, I am really looking forward to that one:) I had a fun Cafe Rio night with most of my girls. It turned out really fun I thought. WE all ordered burritos, and so we rolled them all up and put them in the broiler for a minute or so and wha la...it actually tasted really good!! I was going to get pictures of all of us, but forgot so now it's going to be even more boring with no pictures. That's pretty much all the exciting stuff going on at my house. Poker night again last night....which I don't understand cause it's freezing cold in my garage, but ok I guess. Last night also I had a intramural game and we lost...it was bad....I was actually pretty imbarrassed about the way I played. You think that I had never played basketball before...and the I got to thinking....I guess that i have to be ready to play even if it's "just" intermurals. Anyway, so I have been so annoyed about that all day and all night. I miss my sisters that Idon't get to see very often. DeAnna came and saw us last night with Coltand Kimber. They had a good time. Colt stayed and played with Kasen while D went and watched a basektball game of her little bro in law. It was fun seeing Colt and Kasen play with each other and fun to see the natural reactions of people. Kasen has started not wanting to share and wanting to play with toys that he never even cares about until someone else wanted it. It was pretty interesting to watch. And also, got me thinking and really wondering how I want and need to react to him as he act certain ways. It's fun...I am learning so much! We are excited to be able to go and visit Grandma and Grandpa Sorensen and see the animals. Kasen is going to love it. WE are really hoping to go to California this spring break to visit Tate's mission. and really hoping to visit the Santa Barbara Zoo while we are there. We are excited about that trip. And hopefully be able to go Hogle Zoo sometime with all our other cousins! I just think that Kasen will really like seeing all the animals!! He is learning how to really use his spoon and fork and getting pretty good at it. I have had the hardest time, just letting him feed himself, but I have done it and he is learning so nicely:) He is funny, lately when we go to get him in the morning he has one of his blanky's and is holding it out in front of him and saying, blanket, blanket, so we wrap him up in it and go head into the kitchen for some breakfast...usually he will cuddle with me for a minute in his blanket! It's pretty fun! He hasn't really been attached to anything, so this has been the closest thing to being attached. I don't really know what I a going to do for Valentines Day. I won't be here ,but would like to do somthing fun and surprising for our Date when I get home....I am open to all suggestions!! You know I am not very creative. Well, this has been a long boring post, but like alot of everyone else, like to use this as a journal type thing sometimes!! Love ya!

Mystery Solved

So the mystery of the missing dishwasher handle has been solved. After 3 plus weeks of not really knowing where it could be, Tate found it underneath the fridge! He noticed that Kasen had been putting things under the stove and could hear things rattling, so he though to himself...hum, I wonder if there could be anything under the fridge. Sure enough there it was, along with alot of other toys and spoons! We are really thrilled to finally have this case closed! Silly boy!

Late Night Talks

So, it's 1 in the morning and I just wanted to post a little somthing about my little bro! We have just been sitting here reminising about his good ol' mission and I just can't help but think of how much I love that kid. He is such a good example and such a good friend! I am glad that he is staying with us this semester!! He seriously helps out so much, I don't know what we would do without him. Love you Dave!

Life as I know it

So, last night we had our fill of basketball. Even though the team didn't have practice both Tate and I had games! It was fun...I went to my intramural basketball game and killed the other team...it was really hard to take it serious cause we were just alot better than them. But it was still fun. Then we went to Tate's game later that night. He plays in the city league with alot of boys that I went to high school with so it's alot of fun. They are playing in the championship game next monday!! Boy are we excited:) I just love going to those games mostly because I really do miss watching Tate play and also because alot of my friends are married to alot of the guys so I get to see them alot more than I use to. It's just fun. Life is going good. Our team is traveling to Kansas City, MO this saturday to play UMKC and it's going to be great!! I am having fun trying to juggle basketball with school and my family! It's quite the adventure but I love it. Kasen is growing up so fast. He loves to say "No" more than I think is normal. He is really quite fascinated with his blocks lately. Last night, we were in the living room and we went to find where Kasen had gone too. We snuck and looked into his room and he was building a very large tower with his blocks. We watched him for about 5 minutes! It was so sweet!

The Fans supporting the City league game! Missing a few! Go Shrute Army!
Kasen waiting in the car for Dad to get a movie!
We love REDBOX. Tate can't wait to get the movie out so we can go watch it! Just being silly. We watched Jumper or Jumped or somthing like that. About the kid who could transport anywhere in the world. It was pretty cool. But I think it needs another one to finish up all the loose ends!

Family Blessings

So we had the opportunity to go to Brigham City for my nieces blessing. She is such a sweetheart and so Beautiful!! So we played our game last night and won by 3 in overtime and it was so awesome. Then we took off to drive up there right after. WE got into town around midnight and went to sleep around 1:30 ish after Kasen kinda got tired again from being asleep in the car the whole ride up. Anyway, it was fun to see Tate's family and hang out with them even though it wasn't for very long at all.


Last night during prayers Kasen said, "Amen" for the first time and it was so cute. After he did it we were telling him good job and he just smiled and laughed and being so proud of himself. He is growing so fast and is at such a fun age! WE are loving him! Tate is probably the BEST dad in the whole world and is so great with Kasen. I can't get enough of how amazing he is.

So here are a few pictures of kasen and his cousins today! Fun day with Family!

All the Sorensen Grandkids! All 12 of them....two of my sister in laws are pregnant...so we are getting 2 more! Yeah!

This is Hannah, Sam, Tice and Trace...Trace was singing Rock and Roll and singing it really loud..he claimed that he couldn't turn down the volume...it was pretty funny!!


Kasen playing with Ruger and Case in the famous toy room...it was a huge hit. Thanks Shanna for having such a fun house!
My sweet handsome little man! He had so much fun playing he didn't want to come home. Almost the second we were on the free way he was out!!! Love him!
