Now that we are coming to the end of being residents of Charleston S.C.
I thought I would catch you up a bit on some of the fun we have been having while I haven't been posting.. I know how much you missed us!

Our old truck had a baby!

Jeremiah took Kennen to a Hockey game last year.
They had some great daddy daughter time!

One of our favorite places here is walking along the water front.
Here Jeremiah is throwing the kids over about a 6ft drop.

Before taking the kids out into town we try to wear them out... run bases, jump off things.. safety first.

We had beach day every Saturday...
Until it dropped below 80 degrees and now I think its freezing!

We recently had our last camping trip here, and we made sure the mosquitoes had their fill!

The huge rainstorms here were the best!

We will miss the Alligator hunting! (we shine flashlights on the water and see there big ol eyes)
If I can give advise to any who wish to come to S.C. ... Don't swim in the water and be aware of the smallest puddles!

And of course the first day of school!! They are growin up so fast.. (sniff)

Phew... what a day!

Kennen had an awards ceremony at her school! She got A hand writing award from her teacher and then a special award from the principal. We are so proud of her, she is such a smarty pants and good student! This picture of Brooke is from the ceremony. When we were walking to find a seat, we walked between a woman and a small boy that she was trying to coax over with a sucker... I don't think he got the sucker.

These are dark. The ribbons on her shirt were class awards. The heavy medal is the one from the principal.
My family disappered one afternoon. I thought they took off in the car without me. but then i heard the giggling coming from outside..
Kennen made her valentines this year! they turned out so cute and super yummy..
She also enjoyed the Valentines that she got from her friends.

Taking the kids out bike riding.
Yes, the kids loved it!
They are so cute!
And finally, we are selling our giant truck! We just got it and I'm so sad to see it go.. but it is to big for Charelston. So this is my goodbye to it...
Goodbye big red truck!

This is the pile of leaves that I spent hours raking together.
hhmmmm, there seems to be mischief a foot.
Their leader..

I once raked a pile of leaves...

In the Deep Deep Forest...

We made caves for our Lions, and Tigers, and Bears...
Oh my!
They look so fierce.
Jeremiah played a very important roll here!
Without him the whole thing would come crashing down.
Oh and the Tiger lost one of her ferocious teeth!
Probably gnawing on something very scary, like candy canes!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Wow! Another year come and gone!! Time goes by so fast when you have kids. Not sure if its because they are so cute and you have so much fun with them everyday that its over in a flash... or if its because they keep you on your toes all day and run you ragged that when it comes time to put them in bed and you finally get a moments peace, you fall asleep standing!

Well we have had a great year, busy but great! I will write just a few short paragraphs of all that has gone on this year! If you are interested in seeing what the Wageman family has been doing then please keep reading.. if you are not, well then maybe you should be looking at someone else's blog! Ok, Ill start with the youngsters!

Brooke beans (3 but pretends to be older)! She is still a little crazy monkey. I have come to believe there isn't anything this child can't do, or get into! We don't hold much back from Brooke. If Kennen can do it Brooke is soon behind her figuring it out! She loves her babies, dress up, mud, playing in the mud in her dress up, burps on que, laughing, hugs and kisses and blowing bubbles with her gum. And me... she loves me.

Carson (4, I'm not ready for him to be any older)! He is so much boy! Sometimes I wonder where he learns it from and then I catch his father doing the same thing... Carson is very different from my girls. He won't learn something unless he wants to. And that isn't a bad thing, because he is super smart in things that he wants to know. The girls will sit with a book reading or coloring for hours.. Carson will sit taking apart my electronics and counting all the pieces! Carson loves his games, working with daddy, tormenting his sisters, tooting, and figuring out how the world around him works. And me... he loves me.

Kennen is all girl (16 stuck in a 7 year old body). She is ridiculously smart, her teachers love her. She is a bit of teachers pet, but hey, it gets her what she wants... She reads faster than I do, and is well rounded in all of her other studies. She stuns us all. We are very proud of how well she does in school. She loves to play with her brother and sister, music, computer games, reading, helping me cook and clean, dancing, and avoiding chores. Oh and she loves me too!

Now me (22.. )! I don't really know if I've changed much this last year! I'm working hard to stay caught up with my kids, and I've had so much fun in the process! I like to learn new things, and keep busy. I love to play with the kids, cooking, crafty things, trying to ride the dirt bikes, running and other odd exercises, reading, and getting to know my husband again, since it seems like he has been on a ship for the last three years! I may seem kinda boring but really I'm awesome!

Miah... Ummm (see Carson from above)!!
Miah has been a wonderful father and husband. We recently moved clear across the country to South Carolina and he has been able to be home more. The kids and I couldn't be happier... even though he has been a bit of a menace! Miah loves to take the pieces that aren't really needed out of my household appliances, his dirt bike, tormenting the kids until they are running around like crazies, driving me nuts, making brownies (that way he gets to eat the batter) playing on the computer and me, he loves me! He may seem kinda boring, but...

This is much longer than I had expected... It has been a good year for us, and lots of love... for me! We look forward to starting 2011!

Teaching the kids about Christmas, is fun!

The Christmas Slump.

We are in the Christmas slump! The house feels cramped now
from the holiday decor and I am way behind on the blogging.
So I took the tree down yesterday, and now I'm putting 4 posts in one!!
Lets start on... before Christmas activity.
Carson and Brooke gathered some seed pods from
outside and wanted to make ornaments.
They were lovely!

We went back to the festival of lights to see Santa.
It was fun a second time around too! We got there right when
he had to take a potty break, so we rode the carousel... i thought it a bit scary!
But the kids liked it!

Christmas morning!! At 8am! I was awake and ready to go at 6am
and thats only because Miah said if anyone gets up before 6am then they
would go back to bed... So I forced myself back to sleep when I had woken up at 4am.


And so, let the mess begin!

This damage is after they told me that they had taken all their stuff upstairs... hmm
Well we had a blast this Christmas.. I love Christmas day.
We all sit around and play with our toys and eat leftovers from
Christmas eve dinner and junk from our stockings!
What a slow wonderful day!
