Jared's Baby shower

Gift time!
Sports themed cupcakes

My little brother Trevor and his wife Joanie are expecting a baby boy early December. He is going to be named Jared, after Trevor's middle name. We are so excited! My sister Cortney and Joanie's sister Marcia threw a baby shower at the Nine's Hotel in Portland. It was beautiful, fun and Jared got loaded up on gifts. I loved helping Cortney make the diaper cake and frost a few cupcakes, although I think she just saved me a few so I could feel like I helped. :)

Back to work

I just started a new job with Children's Creative Learning Centers at Oregon Health and Sciences University as the Program Specialist. I am responsible for keeping track of the teacher's curriculum and daily classroom operations. We have 14 classrooms for kiddos 5 and under. I am thrilled to be back at work and cannot believe the fabulous teachers we found. I get to bring my kids with me, so I did pull Ty out of Kindergarten and we'll figure out next year when it comes. I just couldn't pass up the 1 to 8 ratio for his age group, and I know he'll love the new facility and his new teacher.

Hahn Cousin Halloween

My sister Melanie came to visit for the weekend, mostly to attend Jared's baby shower, but we turned it into a Halloween weekend. All the cousins came over to my parent's house for the festivities. We made crafts, cupcakes, danced to crazy Halloween music and all the Aunts and Uncles came over for a treasure hunt trick-or-treat. We had so much fan and it was a huge help for me because I started back to work and needed a babysitter for the week while setting up the new child care center.

Bauman Farms

It has been really fun getting to know all the cool things to do with kids around Portland. Shane asked around at work and a couple of his co-workers suggested Bauman Farms for a Pumpkin Patch. It was a drive, but SO much fun. It was like pumpkin Disneyland. There were playgrounds made of hay stacks, chestnut pits, a petting zoo, bouncy castle relay races, mazes, apple launching and a bouncy pillow. We had a great time, even though we didn't bring pumpkins home with us. We were too tired to carry them to the car after all the fun.


In early October we took a day trip out to Longbeach with my parents. We found two jellyfish, tried to throw them back into the water and then decided they were dead. Tytan dug a hole and we buried them, complete with a ceremonial prayer given by Tytan. It was really cute! We ended the day by walking though the beach stores and got huge rainbow butterfly lollipops for the drive home.

School time!

Tytan started Kindergarten today. He is in the afternoon class since we signed up so late with the move. He was so excited and sits at a table with all the T kids, Timmy, Ty and Tia. He had a great time, loved recess, snack time and only got in one fight. We can't believe he's already five and in school.

Tubing with Gram and Grandpa

It has been so hot, over 100 for the past few days, so se went out tubing on Grandpa's boat last night. Jaxon and Tytan had a few turns sitting with Mom and Dad, but Madox hated it and cried the whole time which is funny because Madox is the crazy swimmer we usually can't keep out of the water. Hopefully we'll make it out again before summer is over.

The Hot Pink Knights

There was a scrap of hot pink fabric laying around, so I made capes for the boys. The boys had fun posing for pictures and saving princesses.

OMSI with the cousins

Uncle Jeff had the day off, so we took all the boy cousins to OMSI. We had fun playing in the water tables, the ball room, making airplanes and looking at the Space exhibit.

We've Moved!

The night before we moved our neighbors, the Inmans, had a BBQ so we could say goodbye to all our Colfax friends. We ended the night with slip and sliding down our hill in the back yard. Then the next morning while we loaded the trucks all the neighborhood kids came over for a splash party. We will miss our neighbors and friends so much!

Tree House

Shane built a little tree house in our apple tree. It's more like a look out, just stairs and a place to sit, but the boys love it. The colors in these pictures are great and make me smile thinking about the Spring flowers to come.

Tytan's preschool graduation

Tytan graduated from preschool and is all ready for Kindergarten in the fall. He made lots of friends and loved his teacher. Here's a picture of him and his best friend Tommy. We are so proud of him. He has learned so much this year.

Mother's Day Kamiak Butte Hike

On Mother's Day the kids made me breakfast, picked me flowers and drew pictures for me. Shane let me sleep in and he did all the housework for the day. In the afternoon we went out to Kamiak Butte for a hike. Along the way the kids did a little rock climbing. It was a beautiful day with my favorite boys!
