The ones i love....

MELT my heart!
We recently had BrotherBeans 1 year photos and a few family photos taken by the very talented, trusted, loved, and great friend GreyGillFish. Below are some of my favorites from the session, although it was VERY hard to pick my favorites because so many of them are amazing!

This last one is by far my favorite! and truly brings out the BrotherBean personality!

Enjoy the new photos of my loves, and MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!

Much love,
The Krout Sprouts

cutie pie comparisson

Last night was a pizza kind of night!
We call it "guys night" around our house...which simply means to BooderBean that he gets to sit on the couch with daddy and TV trays and watch a cartoon while they eat.
As BrotherBean and i were sitting at the table eating i realized HEY-this is his first time to have pizza! And then i remembered i had snapped a photo of BooderBeans first pizza experience so i snapped one of Brother as well.  When i went to find the photo from the past i realized that the photos were taken when both boys were exactly the same age--like down to only a few days apart!

BooderBean--1 year and 12 days old (October 2007)

BrotherBean--1 year and 8 days old (December 2010)

It amazes me to look back at the photos and compare my two cuties!

BrotherBean is ONE

How was BrotherBeans birthday you ask? Well, the word "different" comes to mind.
The poor kiddo was sick on his birthday, throwing up stomach flew a few days before and still not quite himself when the actual big day of turning ONE came. So, even though we had the cakes made, decorations and party favors bought, house cleaned and ready for company...we had to cancel my baby boys first birthday party. AND just as i started taking photos my camera battery decided to die so i had to revert to the cell phone camera...NOT what i had envisioned for so many months, but at least i got some photos.
ok WOW, that was a little dramatic right???
While it was sad to reschedule his birthday party we still made and awesome day for him of hanging around the house with just us four! It was a fun stay at home day doing all fun things that he liked to do, in fact, BooderBean and i didn't change our of our pajamas all day!

Here are a few photos from the fun stay at home lazy birthday day for our big ONE year old man!

Since we had quarantined him to the BRAT diet he didn't get to enjoy cake or any goodies on his big day, instead he got to blow out his candles in a pancake!

He wasn't too excited about the act of opening up gifts...this may be the only photo of him actually holding a gift. he would rather crawl around and wrestle on us and let big brother open the gifts.

And MilitaryMan won, the evening ended with BrotherBean getting his first haircut by daddy!


 After...still cute as a bug!
Happy FIRST birthday to my little man!

Flashback Foto Friday!!

This FLASHBACK of photos is of BooderBean on his 1st birthday! This is probably my most favorite photo of him that day, i know it's not the "perfect" photo that all moms aim for on their child's first birthday, but MAN it's one that has me cracking up every time i look at it!
He was a tad upset by the flame and the fact that he got icing on his hands and was dirty!

Now, that boy wouldnt' care one bit if he got dirty, and he has been asking since July when we get to do fireworks again, so flames are no problem.

This Sunday we will celebrate BrotherBeans 1st birthday and i secretly hope to get a photo like this of him :)

I'll be posting on Monday!!

A Christmas Date

BooderBean and Mommy had a fun crafty Christmas day last weekend!  The two of us got out all the fun family ornaments and went to work decorating HIS tree that goes in his room.  We discussed each and every homemade ornament and talked about all the memories of each bought ornament that I have collected or received over the years.  He was so proud to put his tree up in his room.

That evening just him and I headed to the Mrs. Claus Wonder Express!  It was a fun evening of Christmas songs, crafts, skits, stories and snacks.  He had so much getting to meet Mrs. Clause and the elves! 

And at one point he even said "I like it when it's just you and me" about melt your mommas heart!!! We'll be having more dates more often!

cowboy cuties this one cute four year old or what?!?!?
BooderBean loves to wear jeans and boots...that's pretty much what he asks to wear every day when we are picking out his clothes the night before,
i have to pretty much force him to wear comfy clothes sometimes! 

TRIPLE WOWEE...aren't these the most handsome men ever????
