Mmmmm....Peanut Butter Fritos

Taylor and Gray

Grayson licking the spoon

If you haven't ever tried Peanut Butter Fritos you've got to try them. While my aunt and uncle were visiting my mom found out they'd never tried these before. Immediately, she started making some so they could try them. It's the simplest of recipts:
In a pot mix together equal parts peanut butter, sugar, and Karo syrup (depending on how much you want). Spread a bag of fritos onto some wax paper. Pour the mixture of peanut butter/karo syrup onto the fritos---let cool for a MOMENT---then enjoy. If you ask my mom she'd tell you that they're even better in the morning for breakfast.

Gifts from Hawaii

My grandma recently returned from Hawaii and she brought back gifts for everyone. For the youngest two (Grayson and Trinity) she brought back the cutest t-shirts that had monkey's on them and say Hawaii at the bottom. We put the shirts on and TRIED to get a few cute pictures of the two in their shirts but....Grayson, once again, didn't want to cooperate. He was more interested in trying to take a picture himself.

Family Time

Eating, what we do best!

My grandma wanted a picture with all the grandkids, tallest to shortest, notice where I ended up....I'm the oldest of the bunch standing next to the youngest.

We had a great weekend. My aunt, uncle and cousins all came to visit from Washington. We hadn't seen them in a few years and they had never met Grayson so it was really nice to fianlly get together.

One Big Fish

Grandpa Koster went fishing in Salmon the other day---Brrrr....Anyways, I guess it was worth it because this is what he came home with. I don't think I'd ever seen such a large fish, Grayson thought it was pretty neat too.

Spring Time

I have no new pictures to post but...I took a day off from work today and Grayson's sleeping so I figured I'd post anyway. This month has completely flown by, I can't believe next Wednesday will be April. I always get so excited this time of year because the snow has melted and the warm weather is just around the corner. Grayson and I can hardly wait to start going on bike rides, walks, to the park, the zoo, swimming, etc. My cousin and I signed the kiddos up for swimming lessons at the Apple Athletic starting at the end of the month---it will be a lot of fun, the pool is so...warm. Also, my uncle and his family are coming to Idaho for a visit next week, they've never met Grayson since he's been born so it will be exciting to see their family and enjoy the short time we get to spend with them. Brad and I are looking forward to May, we are taking a trip to Las Vegas (without Gray). It will be the first time that we've left him for over a night so that will be hard I think but I'm really looking forward to some adults only time and where else than Vegas to enjoy that. At the end of May we are going to see Brad's sister in Oregon, we're super excited! It will be Grayson's first time on an airplane and his first glimpse of the ocean. We'll for sure be taking lots of pictures on that trip. Other than that, we hope to enjoy the spring weather in anticipation of summer.

On Wednesday I had to go to Boise for a meeting, my dad and Grayson came with me and we decided to make a trip out of it. Taylor's going to school at Boise State and we were excited to visit her too. We all went to dinner, went swimming at the hotel, and while I was in my meeting, Dad, Grayson, and Aunt Tay all went to Cabella's--they said Grayson had a great time looking at all the animals. Grayson was such a good boy in the truck. We all had a great time!

Play Time

Today we went to Trayson's 6th Birthday Party. Grayson (and his dad) had tons of fun. The party was at IF Gymnastics so all the kids got to run around and jump in the foam pit. I wanted to take lots more pictures but unfortunately my camera died after only taking 2. Anyways, we all had a great time and are planning on going back for Brad's 32nd birthday:)

Friday, March 6, 2009

I'm still not quite sure where the month of February went, I can't believe I only posted one time and now it's already a week into the month of March. Well, so far it's been a pretty uneventful Month. I've been getting lazy about getting the camera out so that's why my post is even a little dull---I'm going to start using it again. Anyways, I wanted to put a picture up of two of Grayson's favorite people (Taylor, if you would have been home you'd be in the picture too). Anyways, here's Grayson with my sister Hilary and our friend Benny. This night Grayson was so...excitd that they came over to visit. I told him that we needed to get his PJ's on and the only person he would let get him ready for bed was Benny...it was really cute. The other pictue is Grayson's first marker experience. We found him in the office with Brad's marker writing on the calendar/wall. Unfortunately, I grabbed Grayson off the desk before I got a pictue of him with the marker---he had it all over his face too, pretty funny. Anyone know any tricks to get marker off the wall without repainting?
