Best Addition in 2010.

You like me even when I have no makeup on and I smell like campfire.

You let me take pictures of you when you're eating.

You are a complete cheeser!  You are always making me laugh.

Thank you for loving my babies and taking such good care of us.

You add fun and excitment to our family.

I love your rosey cheeks. Can you believe he's 4 years older than me? 

It's been an exciting and full 2010 but, I have a feeling that 2011 might be an even better year.

Kyah - In Review

January - You still look like my baby (See picture at bottom of post)
You love your brother.  93.5% of the time you are best friends.  I love that! 

You love to help Mom bake in the kitchen and always want to be my helper.

You got potty trained this year - Good job!!! (Girls are so much easier than boys.)

You love animals - all of them and were thrilled when we had a temporary dog.

You have an expression for every occasion and are so photogenic. 

You love your "puppies" more than just about anything and you still don't leave the house without it. (Warning: This is going to have to come to an end - sorry!)

You make friend easy and love to play with others.

You love your Aunties!

You made your first trip to California this summer.  You loved playing in the sand
and running from the waves.

Dollies/Babies are one of your favorite toys - always trying to be a little mother.

I LOVE those curls - except when I have to brush them and you scream at the top of your lungs.  I consider cutting your hair, but I'm secretly afraid your curls will go away, so I don't.

You had the biggest and best Princess Birthday Party EVER!!  Turning 3 has never looked so good.

This will always melt my heart and I pray everyday that this never changes.

See the face above... she used to be the face below.  My baby is getting big and I'm not sure I can handle it.  Maybe one of these days that little body of yours will grow into the attitude you came with.

Thank you for being my baby.  And for all the fun we have had this year.  You are fearless and exciting.  Thank you for making my life

Jaxon - In Review

You are seriously the best brother ever.  You are still a brother which means on occasion you like to torment your little sister, but for the most part I couldn't ask for more from you.

You are my helper!  Always willing to jump in and do work.  You are turning into such a little man.  You want to go to the tool store and go fishing.

 You crack me up!  You think that you are hillarious and are always telling jokes. 

You ask a million and five questions.  You want to know EVERYTHING.  The things you remember and the facts you spout off impress everyone.

You're favorite part of helping me in the kitchen is the taste testing.

You are thoughtful and kind.  Always worried about others feelings.  You are very sensitive.

I love the adventures that we have together.

I can see the inklings that you think you are too big to be my baby and sit on my lap -
You will NEVER be to old to be my baby.

You had the best Iron Man birthday known to man - even Iron Man himself was jealous.

You started Kindergarten this year - I can't even believe you are old enough to be in school.  You are doing so good.  Math is your best subject and are learning to read.

You are my super hero!

You learned to swim this summer.  Since then I can not keep you out of the are a self proclaimed fish.  All you need is a pool and some goggles.

I love you and your mischevious little face!  Please stay mine - even when the other boys think that being sweet on your Mom is uncool - please still be sweet on me.

The Hogle Zoo decorates for Christmas - who knew? 
Colby and I thought it would be fun to take the kids and check it out.  Mike, Emily and Gavin came and froze with us.  Besides being cold, the only other downside was that it was dark and you couldn't really see the animals.  I think next time we'd go an hour earlier to check out the animals but, other than that everyone thought it was great.

They even had Santa and two of his reindeer.

All of the tigers were awake and prowling... it was a little creepy, but definately my favorite part.
