What I Love About Sundays...

You may not be able to tell from this picture...

but Addisyn got her first tooth today!!!

Her bottom right tooth decided to finally cut all the way through. She drooled and gnawed on things ALL.DAY.LONG! I am certainly glad that one seemed to pop up quickly, and I certainly hope the rest of them do the same!
She also took her first bath sitting up in the big tub!

Her face basically looked like this the entire time... so I am not sure she completely enjoyed it. Given the fact that she wasn't screaming, though, I am pretty certain she didn't hate it either.

Addisyn's First Christmas!

We made the 7 hour trip down to South Florida and stayed there through New Years! PJ, Brady and Layci played from the time the sun came up (sometimes before the sun came up) until after the sun went down. This meant that they usually slept pretty well at night, although most nights they slept in the same room and we would often hear 3 sets of footsteps tramping down the stairs. Nonetheless, we had SO much fun and we were grateful for the time we got to spend with everyone. It was very hard to leave after such a nice visit.

We celebrated my oldest brother Ryan's birthday on December 23rd. The little ones LOVED roasting marshmallows on their new fire pit!Christmas Eve we went to Nanny's house where the kids opened their gifts she bought them!
On Christmas morning when we woke up, Santa left toys and filled PJ and Addisyn's stockings!Checking out what's in their stockings:
Opening presents, playing, and just enjoying our time together...

We had a wonderful visit and were sad when our vacation was over!

PJ's 3rd Birthday- 12/12/10

We were so excited that my mom, sister-in-law Mae, brother-in-law John, and our niece and nephew Kairi and (just-born) Alex came in to town to help celebrate PJ's special day! PJ was surrounded by so many family and friends and it made his day so so special!
When he woke up the morning of his party, he had THIS awesome present waiting out front for him!
Didn't take him very long to jump on in and go riding around the front yard.
We had his party at Ollie Wallie's Fun Center, which is his absolute favorite place to go nowadays! When we pass by the shopping center he BEGS to go "jump jump"! Last year the weather for his party we had at home was less than desirable so we figured that the cold and rain couldn't mess up an indoor party! They had the room all nice and setup already!Here were the favor bags he gave out to his friends at the end of the party with a balloon attached to each one.His homemade Lightning McQueen cake:Everyone had lots of fun playing games and bouncingSurrounded by his family and friends enjoying pizza and Sprite:Getting ready to sing "Happy Birthday" to my not-so baby boy:Santa even came by to visit everyone!Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who made his 3rd birthday so memorable! We were so grateful you could share his special day with us!!!
