This year for our Christmas drawing, we were wondering if anyone would like to change it up and instead of drawing a family every adult would be in charge of bring one gift. Then we could have a white elephant exchange. If the kids wanted they could also have their own drawing!
Wow, I'm a slacker. Time is truely going by to fast.
Colton is in Preschool and really enjoying playing and learning his ABC's and the sounds each letter make. He still loves playing outside even if it is chilly. He loves playing with his guys and being a cowboy. Austyn is a littler stinker. She is such a little tease. She is talking more and always wants shoes and a coat so we can "go". She also thinks every thing is gross. She has been going potty once in awhile so hopefully this summer we will not have to buy diapers. Wishful thinking.
One of the most exciting things happening in our lives is we are finally building a house. We get to live right there while it is being built so it is super exciting for the kids. They are now working on putting up the shingles and hopefully soon we will have our windows in it and it will be completely dried in!
Maybe this year I will do better at updating but no promises.
April 30th was an eventful day. We got Colton a new bed and propped his old one up against the couch. Then Steven and Colton were playing and Steven went after him like a bear. Colton crawled up the matress and flipped over and hit his head on the TV stand. Steven picked him up and sure enough he was bleeding. We looked and decided to take him to urgent care. Luckily the doctor was able to glue it back together. So he didn't have to go through the pain of stitches.

Steven, Colton, Austyn, and I decided to go fishing. We got to the fishing spot and it started snowing. Great! Austyn and I stayed in the truck, but Steven and Colton were brave and decided to face the weather and fish anyway. No fish, but we had a great day.
Wow, It seems like forever since I've last posted. Alot has happened since then. Our little boy, who isn't so little anymore, turned 4. He reminds me so much of Steven. He loves guns, hunting, and fishing. Just being outside is what he likes. He is such a joy in our lives. We are so glad to have him.
Most times it is crazy at the Johnson house but along with the craziness we have some sweet and joyful time. Colton is still the wild, full of energy boy who loves to go outside even if there is a foot of snow and it is cold as can be. Austyn is growing up so fast. It seems like she should still be in the phase where you put her in one place and she is there when you get back. Unfortunatly she has long passed that phase. She isn't crawling but rolling and when she moves she archs her back and pushes off with her feet. It is so funny. The other night we would tell her "Hi Austyn" and she would raise her hand. It was so cute. Oh how we love when we have the good moments associated with raising kids.
Why did we even buy christmas presents? This kid just needs a box and he is happy.
