Dentist Super-Star

Jumped right in the chair like a champ.
Adding dentist gear.... go, go sunglasses and bib!
 Here he is getting his teeth cleaned.


This is the coolest thing.  I have had it done, but I didn't know that they would have Niko do the 180 x-ray.  He did really well when the camera swung around his head.  The x-ray was REALLY cool to look at.  You can see all of his adult teeth ready to come in or being developed. 

Then Dr. Spencer came in and checked all of Niko's teeth.  NO CAVITIES!  She says he's doing a great job getting read of those cavity bugs.  :)

Thanksgiving 2012

Food prep with the next gen of Morrises!

So.... I didn't notice that Niko smeared his greasy fingers on my lens until after I took these photos.  Grrr.... he loves playing with this camera lens.

 Ahhhh... a long standing tradition.  The photo session with Dad after any major holiday.

 Ryan holding his cousin Ryker.

 I don't know how Dad can watch three kids attack his pool table with sticks and stay calm.

 Jenny and his shadow, Niko.  Niko loves to hang out with the Jenster.

 Niko and Ryan - the twin tornadoes for the weekend.

 Yea.... this is terrifying.  Grandpa bought the boys BB guns.  "You'll shoot your eye out, kid!"

 Uncle Donnie looking tough.... until you realize it's a Red Ryder.

 Grandpa showing Niko how to aim.

 Get this girl a gun!  Jenny is quite the sharp-shooter!

 A rare shot of Grandpa with a baby.

 This was Jenny's natural state most of the trip.  Glued to the iPod.

 Do-Da with Ryker.

Ohhhhhh.....  the Morris curse is creeping up on Uncle Donnie.  I will be able to slip a sign and an empty beer bottle into this photo in a few years....

 The kids ran around the house with blankets tied around their waist and Jenny was teaching them how to be princesses.  Although Niko came up and told me he was a vampire so it didn't really work.

The boyz....

Talking and Dancing

Ryker is really beginning to become a chatterbox.  :)  Well, as much as a 3-month-old can be.

For those who don't have kids... I present to you the Hunger Dance.  It kinda looks like he's breakdancing.

Typical Weekend

Yea... this is how we roll on a typical weekend.  Niko is learning new problem-solving techniques.   Actually, Ryker really doesn't cry much.... but then again, he doesn't like to be put down either!

Hanging with the Abuelos

Yet another round of 'Archived Photos From Kim's Phone.'  These are from this past weekend.  The Abuelos took BOTH kids for a couple of hours (first time!)  Neil and I took the opportunity and had a date.  It was really nice!  :)

The Abuela LOVES holding Ryker... he's a much different baby than Niko was.  He's very chill.  Niko, if you are reading this years from now... don't fret. You were a 'challenging' baby... but you got that from me.  I was not an easy baby either!  :)

Ty's Birthday Party

These photos are actually from a while ago... I'm just now getting around to posting them.  I forgot my camera at home, so bring on the cell phone pictures!

Here is the Birthday Boy holding Ryker.  Hard to believe Ty is 6 years old!  Technically, Ty was in our wedding.... Monica delivered him 2 1/2 weeks after our wedding day!  :)
 Jake was in our wedding as the ring bearer.  Look how big he is now!  And he's a Guitar Hero, how cool is that!

 Birthday cupcake time!

 Niko and Daddy shooting the bad guys.  Niko spent most of the time shooting the upper right hand corner of the screen more than anything....

Pizza, Pizza.   Here is Monica's mom, Ellie, Ty and Niko.

We had fun the in the photo booth with the kids.  This is not as easy at we make it look....

Snuggly Season

It's that time of year again... time to break out the winter wardrobe.  I am pretty glad that Ryker is still in the infant carrier for winter.  Getting babies in and out of the car seat with coats on is really not fun.  This little snuggly wrap IS fun though!

Hair Cut/Morris Curse

 I snapped off a quick picture as our private barber (Monica) fixed Niko's shaggy hair.

I laughed pretty hard at this image.... oh man.... the Morris curse grabbed Niko pretty early!  It's like seeing Uncle Donnie in a few years....

Revised Class Photo

Godfather Mark fixed Niko's photo.....much better.

Terrible Class Photos

Here are Niko's 2012 School Photos.  Definitely not my favorite....  I found out on Wednesday night that pictures were on Friday morning.  Not enough notice to get Niko to the barber (Monica.)

My brother pretty much summed up what you see in the photos above:  "Our family's hair doesn't grow at the same rate... it seems to grow into a natural George Washington pattern."  

True enough... the sides of Niko's hair grows twice as fast as the hair on the top of his head.

The class photos is cute though... and we love Ms. Elisha!

First Day of 'School'

Ryker's cubby name tag. 

It was REALLY hard leaving tiny man this morning.... I knew it would be.  It helps that he's going to the same place as Niko so they can see each other though.   Sigh.

Lazy Sunday

Sneaking a nap with Ryker.

And our living room looks like a Toy Story movie blew up all over it... again.
