Three years and Two days

We had our three year anniversary on Tuesday! I know most of you have underwear older than that but you gotta start somewhere right! Any who we went to the Trans Siberian Orchestra, No they are NOT from Siberia much to Randy's disappointment, and I guess it's kinda an Orchestra, with electric guitars. It was a totally different way to experience Christmas music, I kinda find it weird to head bang to "Silent Night", and "Away in A Manger" but they had fireworks and fog machines and a laser show, that kinda made up for it! So before we went to the concert we went to Macaroni Grill, YUMMY! So it was a fantastic way to celebrate three years with the best person in the entire world!

For Sale

So for those of you who don't know, we just put our house on the market. Kinda crazy I know but it's a good time for us and we are ready to get into a "real house". We have totally loved our town house it has been a good place for us to start out but know we want to move on to bigger and better things. So hopefully we will sell soon, but we are not in any hurry so if it takes 6 months that's OK (please don't take 6 months). My favorite part of looking for a house is looking at other peoples homes. So if you want to see my house just push me

We LOVE Shrek

This is what happens to Lincoln when I put Shrek on! On Sunday he was having a meltdown, because that's what he does, so I put on Shrek and VOLA! But seriously how cute is that little boy!
P.S Shrek 3 comes out on video November 13 and we are first in line!

Isn't it beautiful! I showed a close up of the antique in the chairs! I LOVE MY TABLE!!

Isn't it beautiful! I am so happy about our table! We have been eating...OK wait let me change that, we have been looking at a cheapie cheapie IKEA table for the last three years, it was so uncomfortable that we couldn't even sit thru a meal there! But now I have that table of my dreams! Don't worry we have 4 more chairs and a leaf but the leaf is under my bed and we left the other 4 chairs in the box. Just think of the the amazing people I could entertain at this table! Like my family or Randy's family, maybe Oprah someday or Posh and David Becham, you know when the Galaxy play Royal Salt Lake, ohh and I bet they would bring Tom and Katie and Lincoln and little Suri could play together..and then fall in love and then I would be in-laws with Tom and Katie!
I tell you I have high expectations for this table :)

Life-fixing classes

Corrie tagged me for the 5 Life Classes to Fix My Sorry Existence:

Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It’s more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you’d also like to take. Tag five.

1.Let it roll 101: I wish that I could just let things roll of my back, but I tend to take things very personally. So this is a class I could get a lot out of!

2.Super Mom 101: This is Corries class but I think that I would have to take it down a notch. I don't want to be the mom that picks her kids up from school in her p.j's and slippers at the rate I am going I WILL BE THAT MOM!

3.Cooking 201: I don't think that I am a bad cook, I just make the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and get the point

4.Singing 101: I would LOVE to be able to sing! I would actually just be happy with carrying a tune! Anytime I see a concert or play where the singing is fantastic, I get all sad because I wish that I could do that! It doesn't stop me however, from singing in the car-at the top of my lungs. In my car my voice sounds just like Elfiba in Wicked poor Lincoln! p.s I totally know I spelled that wrong but WHO knows how to spell her name!

5.Tact 101: As most of you know I tend to say some pretty messed up things from time to time. It is not at all uncommon for me to have my foot so far down my throat that I should just leave a room! I think it's because I am not afraid to say things that need to be said even if they hurt someones feeling. As I am getting older I think that I am getting better but It is something I should work on!

Five people I tag to 'go to school' are:
Nica- I know you are a teacher already, but think of this as your jump start in the blogging community!
Whittney- You need to update your blog and here is a good reason to
Megan- Same thing goes for you!
Jill and Heidi-Lets get the Sis-in laws back in school-and Heidi we all know you LOVE school!

Halloween Ect.

Cutest Pirates ever!
We had a Halloween/b-day party (for kyle) and we carved pumpkins had yummy food and treats it was awesome! Lincoln is a super helpful little guy as you can see in the pictures he loves to help and do anything and everything that we are doing! But he did get a little confused he thought that he was supposed to eat what he scooped out of the pumpkin! EWWE! He also learned a new word while do this, I bet you can't guess what it was! EWWWWE!

This was the best picture that we could get of the three boys! They are wiggly little things!

This is Lincoln and Tyson up at Gardner Village looking at the scary witches. I think he thought the quilting witch was Grandma Castle! I did get something FANTASTIC up at Gardner Village, after years of searching for the perfect table I found it! However I will not put a picture up just yet because this is not a post about my table-yes that does mean one is coming!

How do they know to only eat the middle out of the Oreo?

So Proud

I am a proud mama. This morning when we were getting ready for church I didn't hear Lincoln so I asked Randy to go and find him, well he came back and said "I'll give you one guess where he is", he was in his room reading books, so Randy sunk in and took some pictures(that's why they are all grainy)! Lincoln is a VERY busy boy so it is nice to see him go and play quietly all by himself, he has always loved books, even when he was itty bitty he loved to look at them so it's not a huge shocker that he would do this, it was just super cute and I had to share!

Monkey See Monkey Do

I didn't realize that I was on the computer that much. I guess Lincoln wanted to see what the big fuss was about!

How many Licks?

This is the story of a poor little sucker and the boy that loved him!

Wrong hand pal!
We start our Journey in side,yikes I know it didn't last long! Playing with blocks while enjoying his sucker!
We made it outside and yes the bib is necessary! He is throwing rocks and not missing a beat with that sucker!
Now he runs up and down the sidewalk, make sure you don't loose it!
Check out those bugs! In the one below you can see all the dirt and grass that the sucker has collected, protein right?

This is all that was left of the poor little sucker! But he served his purpose well!

My Little Picasso!

So once again I didn't take my camera camping, but I am still going to post pictures so don't worry! On Thursday we went to Green River with Randy's family. We went 4wheeling-big surprise I know-but there were little sand dunes and red rock that made riding really nice! Lincoln has learned to hold on to the motorcycle so know he loves it when Randy takes him on the motorcycle! I have to say Lincoln is a Burr thru and thru not only does he look just like Randy but he love 4wheelers and motorcycles, just like his daddy :) But we had a really nice time and it was good to spend time with his brothers and sisters!
Update on Lincoln besides him being so ridiculously cute he is smart too! Good looks and brains the boy has got it all! He has new words he says "OG" for dog and "OOK" for look! I love hearing him talk..or try to! It is so much fun! He is also a Picasso. He has started taking my pen and paper from me and colors all over so I got him some crayons and paper of his own, now he is creating beautiful works of art! We will have a silent online auction in 1 week to sell some of his originals! Just kidding! It is nice to find things that he likes to do so this is a huge milestone!

I love the little table and chairs they are the perfect size for Lincoln! Randy's Grandma gave them to us and they are amazing!

World least thats what it felt like

So we just got back from Arizona where we got to see Nica and go to a cousins wedding. It took us 12 hours to get there, we went the Vegas way and I swear it takes longer! We left at 2:00 in the am and got to Nica's school (smelling like vomit,dirty diaper, and car) at about 1:00 her time, we saw some of her students and hung out for like 10 min for obvious reasons..thank goodness they were baking brownies! We went to the Zoo, swam, ate at IN and OUT (yes it is better and cheaper than Chadders) twice. We got to go to my cousin Kelly's wedding and see a bunch of Castle cousins that we never get to see. We basically just hung out it was so much fun to go down and play with our favorite Aunt Nica! LOVE YA!
Some new things that we learned about Lincoln this trip were that he LOVES SHREK! Both 1 and 2 not the best movie for a little kid, but whatever keeps him happy! He is starting to talk a little now his new favorite thing to say, and mine as well is "no mom"! Its what every mom wishes her child's firsts words were! Last but not least, cough syrup knocks him out for about 8 hours. WA HOO! Its the best on a 12 hour car ride! So that was Arizona...oh I almost forgot we drove thru Colorado was awesome!
So now for California. I went to Cali for a girls trip with my sis in-law Jenette and some of her friends, we went and saw Wicked and shopped the whole time! Wicked was awesome we had good seats and the cast was AMAZING! I love wicked I would marry it if I could! Then we went shopping and while Jenette and I went to VS to get a bra the rest of our group went into the quicksilver store and who should walk in but non other than Zac Efron, from High School Musical and Hairspray, and his Girl friend Vanessa...the one who sends naked photos over the Internet-just a little side note NEVER send naked photos of yourself, we don't want to see it, and yes everyone will find out if you do, KARMA people, KARMA.
So those are the grand adventures of the last two weeks I didn't take very many photos so sorry! Maybe I'll post more later in the week!

Nothing Going On YET.....

So I am kinda bored with our post right now. I guess it is because nothing big or fun has happened in the last little bit. I was reading Lindsey's blog and she posted about strapping her kids down and getting mad at them for making a mess. Then I thought about it, Hey I do that ALL THE TIME! Except I don't get so mad at Lincoln for making a mess I don't have the "clean gene" that those Bullock girls got. LOVE YA LINNY!! So I have realized that I can post about anything not just the super cool fun things we do. Don't worry this rambling will happen only this week because next week I am going to CA to see WICKED! I am so excited. Then the weekend after that we are going to AZ to see the Nica Bomb and for my cousins wedding. So I am sure I will go post crazy then and rub it in on how cool Wicked is the second time around! BOO-YA! Here are some funny pictures of Lincoln for all of you who miss him!I don't know why he was so sad but Randy took this picture and I thought it was so funny! How sad is that face? These are of Lincoln all ready for his bike ride! LOTOJA 2027!

Petting Zoo!

We went to Thanksgiving Point to the petting zoo and had so much fun! Lincoln was so brave!he fed chickens and the pigs! We put him on the pony ride and at first he was totally scared but slowly he warmed up to the pony! When the ride ended he pulled on the horses mane to try and get it to start walking again! Hopefully he won't be afraid of animals much longer!

This is at the beginning of the ride Randy had to hold on to him then by the end he held on all by himself!

Labor Day Weekend!

We went camping this weekend with Jared and Jenette to Monticello. It was so much stinking fun we rode 4-wheelers and played in the dirt! Lincoln had so much fun! And as you can clearly see he loves the taste of dirt, as every little boy should! I love that he is exploring and being adventurous! He played hide and seek with Tyson! Ty would go and run and "hide" and then say "Bink, come on Bink" and then Lincoln would go find him and laugh and then they would do it all over again. What fun little buddies! They also had fun watching Cars and Tarzan together. Even though they are 18months apart they are still best little buddies!

Tyson is "hiding"....................Lincoln is "seeking"

This is on top of sime huge mountain overlooking Blanding. This was a tough ride we left camp at 1:30 and didn't get back until 5:30! I was amazaed we made it back at all! Just kidding it was tons of fun! And the best part is lincoln now knows how to drink out of a Camel Pack! We really had a lot of fun camping and we are glad that Jared and Jenette like us enough to take us!

Boys sheesh!

So I put Licoln down for a nap the other day and he didn't fall asleep right away, he was up stairs talking to himself. So I didn't go and check on him. About 2 hours later when I went to go get him up from his nap I walked in to find him BUTT NAKED!! He had taken off his shirt and diaper and thrown them over the top of the crib! Luckly he didn't poop while he was "napping" he just peed! What a little stinker!

Parents Of The Year

I was looking at some of our pictures and I found these two, Heather took these when we were at her house in November of 2006, so Lincoln is 5months old here. For those of you who don't know we are amazing parents, we broke Lincoln of his finger sucking habit in just one week! Amazing I know!

Ok so here is the real story, it is actually really sad. A couple of Sundays ago Randy took Lincoln into the bathroom to turn the light off after I had just finished getting ready for church and Lincoln reached down and wrapped his little had around my hot flat iron. It was so sad. His fingers blistered right away and at first he still sucked on them, but I think that it bothered him enough that now he wont even try. So we win PARENTS OF THE YEAR! Lincoln's fingers are all better now and he's non the wiser about what we did to him!
