3: 2010 A new year with lots of adventures to be had! Exploring is hard work and sometimes you just can't stay awake at supper time! | At the start of the new year, Aidan is 4, Keaton is 2 and Maddox is 6 months old. In January, Maddox got to take his first bath in the big tub with his brothers. 3 boys in a tub- what fun!
5: Remember all the snow we got in February 2010? The boys had so much fun playing outside in the snow and helping daddy build a snowman. Our snowman turned out so cute!
6: Spring time!
7: March is a great time to go play outside! The weather is just right. Keaton loves to drive the tractor around the yard. Aidan likes drawing and practicing his name on the sidewalk with chalk | Hunting for Bears

14: Our baby boy is one!
15: Maddox, You love to play and I love that you want to be close to me when you know I'm around. It's also fun to play copycat with you. You will mimic sounds I make. I love to wrestle with you too! Love, Daddy | Our birthday boy this month was Maddox! He has been on the go since he could crawl and started walking around 10 months. He loves to do what his big brothers do and really likes to climb up on things. Maddox also loves to smile! If you just look at him he will grin right back at you. We are so proud of our one-year old!

22: Guests with the Birthday Boy!
23: Our sweet little boy was wore out after the party and ready for a nap.
24: Being one is wonderful!
27: In July, Laura and Victor got married and Keaton was in the wedding. He and and his cousin Kaedon were so cute when they walked down the aisle carrying the "Here Comes the Bride" sign. They were even cuter when they walked backwards up the aisle (in reverse style) holding the "Just married sign.
28: Maddox's First Haircut | Our Swimcation!
30: Look who turned 5 this year!
31: Aidan was the birthday boy in August! Aidan is getting so big. He is the sweetest son that any parent could ever hope to have. He helps watch out for his younger brothers and is helpful around the house. He is starting Kindergarten this year, and we know that will be a big adventure for him! :) Aidan loves Star Wars, Superheros, Cars and Toy Story! Even though he is shy he seems to make friends easily. He loves to make things and enjoys spending time with mom & dad too! | Aidan, You love to help do anything! I love the way you are so eager to learn about everything. I love to wrestle with you too! Love, Daddy
34: Aidan's birthday party was a lot of fun. He wanted a soldier themed party! | Keaton and Maddox enjoyed playing on the little slip and slide. | We rented a huge water slide for Aidan and his friends to play on!
38: Back to School!
39: This year Aidan started Kindergarten at Central Heights Elementary. His teacher is Ms. Bailey. He's made a lot of new friends already and was even fortunate enough to have some old friends from Sonshine School there as well. He's always excited about whatever is going on at school and we are glad he loves school! Keaton and Maddox are back at Sonshine School and they love it as well! We are blessed to able to have our children in such great schools.
41: October was a fun month! The weather was prefect for being outside. Aidan went on his first field trip to the Moore Pumpkin Patch in Bullard, Texas. We also took the boys to the Pineywoods Fari in Nacogdoches. It was "super-fun" per Keaton! He loved the roasted corn on the cob!
42: Aidan's first field trip! Here's Aidan with his classmates and teacher. Aren't their shirts so cute?
45: Keaton was our birthday boy in November. 2010 has been a rather rough year for him as he's had to be hospitalized several times for respiratory illnesses, but he never lets that get him down! Keaton loves Batman! He can often be found running around in a pair of boots and a superhero cape. He loves to snuggle with his mommy. He is affectionate and almost never has a problem with sharing his toys. | Keaton, You love to have fun and clown around. I love your sweet demeanor and when you sing. I also love to wrestle with you! Love, Daddy
49: Keaton turned 3 this year and we had a super sweet birthday party for him! Lots of goodies, including his favorites - dum-dums and starburst!
53: Merry Christmas from The Louts | We added this ornament to our tree this year. It reminds us of our 3 little "superheros"
58: Rachel's 2010 Facebook Statuses | one macaroni up the nose....what do I do??? You can't even see it, do we have to go the ER??? - Looked up and Maddox was standing up! I'm afraid he's going to be walking early..... - Still ready for summer, but liking the snow! It's so pretty! - is watching Keaton driving Aidan's tractor. He's actually a pretty good driver for 2 years old, except he doesn't know how to go in reverse and he doesn't always stop when he needs to. It's pretty hilarious! - just woke up and on my way to the hospital. Poor Keaton is being admitted again.... - When you hear furniture moving and other unusual noises and then someone comes and gives you hug and says "I love you Mama" for no reason, go ahead and assume something is up! - So happy Keaton seems better today! Hopefully he will be able to come home soon. He wants to go home so bad!!! - Keaton is on his way home! So happy! - My husband seems to think we live in the little house on the prairie. He's always standing at the backdoor with his gun trying to shoot a critter or a bird. - sitting in Houston traffic and Keaton says "go dad, it's not a red light" - My baby boy started walking tonight! He's so good at it, I think he must have been practicing in secret! lol - Love how my husband is always so supportive of all my crazy ideas! - We just got Keaton a new potty and undies. On the way home Aidan says "Give me five! You got a potty dude!" He's also been giving Keaton step-by-step instructions on what he needs to do. He's really very good at giving instructions. He may be a future teacher! lol - Is so thankful for all the hardwork being done so I can have an office space! :) - is at Jalepeno Tree with one of my favorite men - If anyone is looking for an interior decorator - I have two. I just found Aidan and Keaton's lovely artwork on their bedroom walls. There is a bear by the door and Aidan thought he should personalize the door with his name. Then there are lovely arcs on the rest of the walls as well as the newly colored light switch. It's all so beautiful...oh did I mention it's in BLUE MARKER? - How do you stop boys from constantly throwing things? Apparently life is one big ball game to them! - Happy Birthday to my baby boy! I can't believe it's already been one year....so thankful to have such a happy, sweet-natured son. I love you, Maddox! - Keaton started telling me today, "mama, I love you soooo much! I love that boy soooo much too! - Sweetest moment ever this weekend - we were watching The Little Rascals movie when Alfalfa starts sings "You are so beautiful" to Darla and Keaton snuggled up in my lap and started singing it to me! He probably had no idea what he was doing....but I just melted of course! lol - I told the boys that we were going to take them to a kiddie pool and when their Daddy got home they excitedly told him "we're going to a cat pool!" - is having a great swimcation! - Maddox just got his first haircut...now maybe the waitress won't bring him a pink straw in his drink! lol - 5 years ago today my life was changed forever when a beautiful screaming 10lb 9oz baby entered the world. Today he is the kindest sweetest son that any mother could ever hope to have. I love him so much! Happy 5th Birthday Aidan! - Today he's running around trying to figure out everything he could do today that he couldn't do yesterday! lol - Can not believe my baby is Kindergarten! I didn't cry though...at least not where he could see me. :) - Asked Aidan what the best part of his day is, his answer, "cookies", so asked what after cookies? Nap. After Nap? Getting up.... - Keaton is about to be admitted into the hospital. Please pray they get the IV in right away. He doesn't want to be poked. :( - I'm not sure how it's possible, but Keaton becomes even sweeter when he's sick and of course that just breaks my heart that much more! He's never grouchy or complaining - just patient and long-suffering. I love him sooo much! - Sad day....Aidan's color changed to red. Apparently he can't keep his hands and feet to himself. And he sure didn't want to tell me
59: about it! lol - Aidan: Can I have a cupcake? Me: Did you eat all your chicken? Aidan: No Me: Then you can't have a cupcake Aidan: That doesn't make any sense! - Having lunch with batman today. - Aidan's learning to read. I think I'm going to cry! - Say a prayer for Keaton today. He's sick again and about to be transferred to a children's hospital in Houston. Also an update, he was tested for allergies this week to see if that's what was causing him to get sick all the time and he tested negative for everything except a little bit of a dust mite allergy. - 1st Report card for Aidan today - All E's except for a S in handwriting. No surprise there! lol - Listening to my boys put on a concert in the other room....Aidan's playing the guitar and both him and Keaton are singing. So cute!!! - Hairspray does a pretty good job of cleaning up permanent black marker - Wham! Pow! Ouch! My boys are watching classic Batman TV episodes. Love it! - Having the best time at the fair. love to see my boys having so much fun! - So proud of Aidan today! his color was changed to blue which is really good! He was really excited and proud of himself too! - We were watching something about princesses and Keaton turned to me and said, "I have a princess." When I asked who, his reply was "You're my princess!" This is the same one who sings "You are so beautiful to me"...if he's as sweet to other girls as he is to me, I see a lot of girls calling our house in the near future! lol - 3 years ago today, (about this time actually) the most precious little boy was born. This past year has been kind rough on him with him being in and out of the hospital, but despite it all he continues to be so sweet and happy! He is super fun to be around and the apple of my eye! I love him so much and I'm believing he's going to have a better year! Momma loves you Keaton MacAllen Lout! - hate, hate, hate, going to work and leaving a sick baby at home, especially when he bursts into tears and wants to know where I'm going. :( - Nothing like a kiss from a one-year old, a little tongue, a lot of slobber, kinda gross but oh so sweet! - just left the cutest Christmas pageant. it was so much fun! - Keaton calls Santa "The Christmas Guy" or "The Ho Ho Ho Man". He doesn't call him Santa. lol - just hit up half the drive-thrus in town so everyone could get what they wanted for supper. The things we do to make our kids happy! lol - I'm supposed to sign off on Aidan's homework every night and I just noticed that he "forged" my signature...only he signed it "mom"! lol - Maddox just ran over to me bringing a batman cape for me to put on him and saying "batman...nah...nah...nah" Now that he has it on, he's running around saying "BATMAN!" lol - Merry Christmas to all our friends and family!
