What's better than a juicy turkey for Thanksgiving?

BACON!!!
It didn't really matter that Cary came home from Quantico for Thanksgiving...we had Bacon on our turkey...basted with honey.
Yummy....
Let us know if you want the recipe.

Happy Birthday Miles

This year, Miles turned 2 years old. We still can't believe at times that we have 3 boys so young. Simon really loves blowing out candles, so we had to keep him out of the way or else he would (again) blow out someone else' Birthday Candles. Good thing Miles was only interested in the M&Ms on top.
All the kids loved the cake.

They had their own little table in the kitchen to enjoy their food.

Here are some pictures over the years of Miles. We thought he looked more like Simon...but over time he developed into his own little man.




We love you Miles. Happy Birthday and may you continue to bring us joy.

Happy Anniversary

On October 30, 2010, Kelvin and Susie celebrated their 6th year of marriage. We've gone through 2 wards, delivered 3 beautiful boys, and endured 4 companies, 4 years of schoolings, 2 homes, 2 TV upgrades, 3 international vacations, and we're still madly in love.


Annual Pumpkin Patch Trip

It was time for the Ning Family annual trip to Farmer John's pumpkin patch in Half-Moon Bay. I think Miles was really able to enjoy it. We chose to go on "Bernese Mountain Dog" day but after meals and naps we only saw 1 dog there. Apparently there were over 100 that showed up throughout the day.




Darth Vader

No introduction necessary....

Titus is following the steps of his brothers by getting big...quickly... He's no longer our little infant. He's got just enough hair to do a faux-hawk.


We all definitely our little guy in the house. He fits right in with the other two and soon will join them in their games.


Simon and Miles

Simon's got a fan club. He has a couple of little girls that think he's the coolest thing ever (besides his cousin Grace). Haley Hatch has got a "HUGE" crush on this boy. She gets the giggles whenever he's around and both of the parents think it's hilarious to see them interact. We told Simon to give Haley a hug and she was just ecstatic.

Simon and Miles are starting to really enjoy each other's company. They're both still very different people but they've learned how to play and have a lot of fun.

Miles does the craziest stuff some times when we go in and check on him. Apparently he went and read books and played Tennis after we put him to bed.



Kelvin went and represented the family at a masquerade party. It was supposed to be a fancy party but he ended up looking like the crazy butler.

Not sure how this video will look, but here Kelvin not only looks like a giant inside of this small trampoline, but he's got the boys bouncing around unable to stand on their feet.

Summer Wrap up.

So, the following people have made personal requests for updates:
- Karisa Winkel
- Lindy Burgon
- Lillian Ning
- Lanie Wilkinson
- Tannya McFarland

This next hour of writing and editing is dedicated to all-y'all...I do have to say, that comments on our posts really do help encourage us to keep writing. :)

Here's the Ning Summer wrap-up:


SUSIE'S BREAK WITH TITUS AT LAKE POWELL
The Daniel's were upset again that Kelvin couldn't make it to Lake Powell. With a change in jobs (again) he couldn't pull away. :(

Titus enjoyed time with mommy and all the attention from grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.


THE BOYS AT HOME
I think Susie and Kelvin can both admit that Simon's the easiest to take care of out of the 3. Miles however has been really getting his personality in. He's always been slightly allergic to chocolate, but it's been hot and hard to deny him the occasional chocolate ice cream cone.

It doesn't matter who it is, Miles has had the innate desire to just sit on top of them...especially when watching TV.

Grammy came out to help for a couple of days with the baby. It was great to have her here.

Miles can't keep his hands off of Titus. None of us are sure what this means in terms of his relationship with Simon. Simon will come by and give an occasional kiss to Titus, but Miles seriously gets excited when he sees Titus; to the point where he'll roll on top of him and wake him up.

Danny and Liz were some of the first to come by and visit us at the home. I think Danny looks like an old pro with Titus.
Not only will Miles not leave Titus alone...but he and Simon can't keep their hands off of Titus' toys.
As Kelvin was leaving one job and going to another...the Ning family took a week off to drive south, visit family, and relax.

The first stop was in Monterey, then a quick drive down to Pismo Beach. Simon absolutely loved the water. Kelvin had to chase him down just to make sure he didn't go too far in.


Miles liked it...sort-of...but after awhile I think he just started to get cold.


We did a quick visit to see Nate and Cari Owen (Susie's Sister). Sadly enough, the only kids there was Mile's twin cousin Annie. They had tons of fun hanging out and playing together.

Kelvin decided to wait awhile for Grace to come home...he fell asleep on her bed. :)

Next...it was off to Grandma and Grandpa Ning.

Grandma was especially excited about taking the boys for the first time to Disneyland. This is Miles' first ride ever. He enjoyed it...just a little.

We weren't sure what to do about all of the Disney characters. It was end of summer and the place was packed!!! We stuck to the rides...and Simon learned the true meaning of "waiting in line..."















Simon couldn't get pulled away from the rides.

It got hot...and we had to get the boys some Slurpee.





































We really wore out Grandma and Grandpa.

Titus Samuel Ning

Well, we finally decided to name the boy:

Titus Samuel Ning...

We love you Titus, and can't wait to see if your hair goes blond in a couple of weeks.

Introducing, the latest edition to the Ning Family!!!

Yup...that's right...another baby. With Simon being 3 years 2 months, all of the boys are exactly 19 months apart from each other.

This morning it was a bit surreal, waking up, tending the boys, having a huge breakfast, putting them down for naps, then going to the hospital to deliver.

Here I am with our OB Dr. O'Callahan. I was waiting outside the doors while Susie was getting prepped for surgery.

Kelvin gave Susie a blessing prior to the procedure to make sure everything would go well. And, as expected, everything did. We haven't named him yet (taking suggestions) but he came out 8lbs 3oz and 20 inches long. Here I caught him with his feet still inside. He looks like he dove out.

Here he is getting washed up. He has a bit of a soft cry, but would not open his eyes for hours. He has Kelvin's nose, Susie's hands and toes, and for now, his hair is dark brown.

Here's the proud papa.


About 40 minutes after delivery, Susie is looking great!!! At the time, she couldn't feel her legs, but she was feeling good.



Having 3 boys, 3 years and 2 months apart will certain mean we'll need multiple fridges and cooking classes in the home may come early so that they can help in the feeding process. They may all be in High School together and for sure all of them will be in College together.

We are very proud of our children, and love them all so much. They are truly the great source of joy in our lives. Thanks for everyone who has helped us so far...more to post once we pick a name. :)
