The Gift of GiGi

Jeremy's mother, Joanna, came to visit Easter Weekend! The boys love it when she comes to town. Carter thinks she is like VACATION! You know, spoiled rotten with food, treats, gifts and lovin'! Coleman warmed up pretty well this visit. He could be found sitting with GiGi outside while Carter rode his new Big Wheel.

More Love!

Yes, for those of you in your 30's, this is a replica of YOUR Original Big Wheel. Jeremy had so much fun with this. He had the same one pictured here and an Incredible Hulk! So funny!

Later on, Coleman found himself "posing" with the "Easter Bunny". It was hilarious... even though he DIDN'T think so! Mommy was tourturing him. HEHEHEHE!

Thanks GiGi, you are a Blessing!

Sadler Easter 2009

Easter Weekend was a blast for the Sadler Big Top. We took lovely photos of the boys. GiGi was in town, and she was OOOHHH such fun. Though it was a weekend full of fun activities, we still took time to remember the death and resurrection of our Savior! Because of Him, we have been given LIFE and BLESSING!

Egg Hunt

Another Easter, another egg hunt for our growing Big Boy!! He is such an absolute delight! We see such joy in Carter. He is so easy to please and finds treasures in all things. This year was thrilling for him. Of course he feels the need to open the eggs to check for CANDY!!!

So, here are Carter's EGGS!!!! Too FUN!!

He is SSSOOO focused on every task, just like his Daddy! So focused, in fact, that smiling for a picture with Mommy would be IMPOSSIBLE! Hope your hunts were GREAT!!

Celebrate Coleman!!

WOW!! Time does fly!!! It seems like yesterday Baby Coleman Patrick came into our lives! He has been a rich blessing and enhancement to our home. He is the happiest little thing you have ever seen. Everyday we enjoy the character he has come to be.

These cupcake pictures are sooo classic Coleman... always glad to participate in anything MESSY!! Of course he has had such a rough year. 2 stays in the NICU and 2 ear surgeries is a lot for such a little guy, but he has triumphed!!!

Baby Cole was close to my heart from day one. He is my little snuggler, though he will romp around and play all day with his big brother, Carter and Daddy. So, Happy Birthday to my sweet boy, the last to know the sound of my own heartbeat. God knew what He was doing when He sent us Coleman. May everyone be AS BLESSED!

Oh Rain

Well, we sure have been seeing the rain the past few days. It is refreshing, really. But, it seems the idea of rain has taken over everyone, even Carter. So, this Thursday we were riding in the car on the way to the boys school, and Baby Cole began to sneeze. He sneezed atleast 10 times, literally. Each sneeze follwed by "Goodness Baby Cole", "Bless You Baby Cole", or "Oh... BABY COLE!!!", from his older brother of course. Towards the end of Coleman's sneezing fit, Carter exclaimed, "Mommy, Baby Cole is RAINING!!!"'... also known to us as spitting. Oh so funny.... they grow so fast. Today, Jeremy and I were having a bit of a "discussion" when Carter walked over to his daddy and said, "Now Daddy, that's enough, Now Daddy, that's enough." There is nothing like a 3 year old putting you in your place. Oh, welcome back to inside the Big Top... on rainy days! Have a great week.

Playdates with Mommy

As you can see, Coleman enjoys his playdates with Mommy. I try to have fun time with each of them... just me and them.... no brother around. Baby Cole looked out his window at the bushes and flowers, oh he had quite a time! We read books and played in his nursery, then it was off to the kitchen for snack! As you can see in the picture where he is "cutting his eyes" at me, HE DOESN'T LIKE YOU MESSING WITH HIS FOOD! Come on, he did not get to be my "Chunky Monkey" by sharing snacks! Have a great week and check back in soon for more pictures of both Carter and Coleman!
Love, The Sadler Big Top

Your February Catch Up
So, lots has transpired since our last blog. I made a quick trip to Dallas to be with my family in CELEBRATION of my great aunt Louise. She went to be with the Lord after a long journey of love!! It was the first time that the entire "Erwin Seven" had been together in 5 years, given that Heather and I live in different states and visit TX. at different times. It was a richly blessed 40 hour trip!

February has marked an awesome time of love under our Big Top! Coleman has continued to struggle with his ear problems, but seems to be on top after lots of prayers and doctor visits. He keeps on smiling through it all. At nearly 11 months he is so busy crawling, pulling up, standing and TALKING!!! He is so talkative, wonder where he gets it??? DaDa, Hey, and something close to MaMa are his current words of choice. Our youngest one has been a blessing AND constant source of prayer since his arrival. May this next year be an easier one for him!

Of course you all know Carter! He is such an amazing 3 year old. February finds him pouring his heart out as usual! He loves his Mommy and Daddy, and Baby Cole of course. We are always taken by surprise with his love and affection. He is truly the SWEETEST 3 year old on the planet, always concerned about your feelings and desires. He continues to excell in the classroom as he learns all about spelling, computer and Jesus... to name a few of his favorite areas. Hopefully our next blog will report a potty trained Carter, we shall see!

Thanks for checking in on our Big Top! We will post more pictures when we are able to catch our "Wild Ones" not in motion! We hope March brings each of you your hearts' desires.

The Sadler Holidays

Welcome back to our blog! It has been so long since our last post, SHAME ON US! The holiday season was a blessing as usual. Thanksgiving found us in Dallas, Texas where we celebrated Carter's 3rd birthday early with family. Christmas and New Years 2009 were celebrated as a circus party of 4. These are some pictures from our Happy Holiday Season. The boys are growing and really enjoyed Christmas this year. Jeremy and I found some quiet times together too. We hope your 2009 is a VERY BLESSED YEAR!!!

Carter is having such a great time with GiGi at Thanksgiving.

An oh so rare quiet and still moment.

HAPPY 3rd Birthday Carter!! Curious George themed!!
