Las Vegas Zoo Trip

Mike had to go to Vegas for some training for his new job, so we decided we would all go down, spend the night in a hotel and I would take the boys to do some fun things in Vegas.  We had originally planned to go to the Lied Discovery Children's Museum, but when we got to Vegas, we discovered they were closed on most Mondays.  We had some fun going to the Zoo instead.

Fabulous Four!!

Its amazing how fast time flies when you have kids!! It seems like only yesterday Noah was my little 6lbs 7oz baby boy. 

It seems we flew through the baby days, the busy toddler days, the terrible twos, and troubling threes...and now he is 4 years old!!  And we are looking forward to a fabulous year of him being 4!!

Noah has been attending preschool at Tonopah Elementary, and he LOVES it!!  He loves being able to go spend time with friends, learn new things, and he even gets to see his Nana on Wednesdays when he goes to computers.  He is a little social butterfly, he has a lot of friends, and loves to talk to anyone.  His favorite color is blue, his favorite food is Ramen Noodles, and he wants to be a doctor when he grows up.  He loves watching movies, his favorite ones lately are "How to Train Your Dragon" and "Lilo and Stitch."  He loves being able to go to Primary now, and has even passed off the First Article of Faith!!

Noah is a very loving big brother!! He loves Ammon and is always looking out for him.  He still is a little snuggle bug, and at 4 years old is not embarrassed to give his Mommy a hug and a kiss in front of his friends at school.  He LOVES reading books, his favorite books to read are his Curious George collection.  He loves being outside, playing in the snow, going to the park, and playing baseball.

For his birthday we got him a Beta fish that he named "Stitch."

I also made Koi fish cupcakes for him:

And he had lots of fun blowing out candles and opening presents!! Ammon insisted he blow out a candle too.

I have a lot of catching up to do!!

Life has been so hectic and crazy lately, I haven't had a lot of time for updating my blog.  First off, we are FINALLY done with court!! I am so happy it is over, words can't even express.  We have Noah full time for school now, but to keep it joint physical custody we had to figure out a schedule to give his dad 146 nights...which equates to almost every other weekend, school holidays, and the majority of summer and winter break.  Not exactly what we had wanted, but its a big step up from where it was.

Secondly, Noah turned 4 years old on January 17th!! I will write a bigger post about this later, and include pictures, but its crazy my little guy is 4 years old!! I still have a hard time believing its been that long since he was born!!

And finally, Mike got a new job working out at the Government Test Site.  He gets better pay and benefits.....but he's not allowed to say what he does out there... ;)

That is pretty much all of the big news to share, hopefully I can get on here more often and keep this better updated.
