Lets play pretend

As in, pretend I posted this 5 weeks ago when I actually filmed it.

Scroll down for more recent events :)

The Miss turns One!

The celebrating took place over two days, squeezing it in around other things like, friends having babies, friends having birthday parties, and Matt's visit to Wild Safari (will post soon!)

Happy little girl on the morning of her birthday!

On the evening of her birthday, she got a little taste of the frosting.

The next day, we had a little birthday lunch: sliders, fruit and "cheesy chips".

Followed by birthday cake...

...which she LOVED!

And presents. Which she liked, but not as much as the tissue paper, wrapping paper and tags.

Let me introduce Rody, the newest member of our family.

And her new hat, which I LOVE!

We had to lose the shirt after cake, so please excuse the naked birthday photos. A smart mother would have taken her shirt off for the cake and them replaced it for the presents. Like I said...a smart mom.

We LOVE our Miss and hope she had her best birthday EVER!!
Oh, wait...

The gift that Keeps on Giving

Melissa got her birthday present from Grandma Girl a little early. I am happy to report that ALL are LOVING this chair.

And while the Miss was enjoying her new chair, the boys were busy creating their Secret Lair out of the box.

Gift count:
1-Chair for the Miss
2-Box for the boys
3-3 hours of quiet while the boys created their lair in their bedroom.

I am the clear winner here. Thanks mom :)

Ollie turns 4!!

Our sweet little Ollie turned 4 last month and we had a rockin' good time at his Transformers party at the Little Gym. Ever since Mason's party last summer, Ollie has been talking about having his party at the Little Gym...a good time was had by all!
Our big boy! Can't believe he is four already!!

The party goers

Four things that we LOVE about Oliver...
1. He is our snuggle bunny. He is the first one to curl up to you and rarely does a day go by when he doesn't crawl into my lap and say, "Mommy, you are the warmest."
2. He has a great imagination and builds all sorts of tools, toys, weapons out of tinker toys. Each one has a specific use that he explains and remembers.
3. He loves his brother and sister, and loves to do things that make them happy.
4. He has the very best, big brown eyes!!

We love you Ollie and are so happy that you are in our family!
Happy birthday sweet boy!!
