More Snow

We have been having so much fun these last few days with the sunny- Utah warm weather (in the 50's!) When Mckay looked outside this morning and was assaulted by snow on the ground, he started to cry! First meltdown of the day at 7 am! Poor thing thinks we will never have sun again.
I love the excitement on his face in this picture as he is running down to the ocean for the first time when we were in Newport. Ohhh to live in sunny California!

Lego Creations

I just had to post a few pics of Nick's recent lego creations! I have to say that I am very grateful for legos. Nick and Mckay could spend hours just building and creating. When Andrew comes to play they come up with some pretty cool things! If only I could figure out a way to not have tiny little peices on the floor all the time- not a great thing when I vacuum!

Disneyland 09

I am finally getting to posting pics from our trip to Disneyland. We went with our friends, the Zundels, and had so much fun. We stayed at the Grand Californian and had adjoining rooms. The kids got to play with each other almost every minute of every day and had so much fun. We also got to meet up with cousins and our friends the Smiths. It was so fun to see Zoe and Ayden again and spend time with Ry and Whitney and the kids.
We had great weather for the first part of the trip, and then it rained for the last two days at Disney. We ran around with our ponchos, but still got pretty wet. It was very nice to have our hotel right at the park so we could go back and change!
Nick was a little nervous about all of the big rides before we went and told us he was not going on them- but Mckay couldn't wait! So the first time on Space Mountain, Nick went with Nate, and Mckay and Will went together! What brave little kids. Mckay couldn't stop talking about Space Mountain the rest of the trip and wanted to go on it over and over! We let the kids earn money to have to spend while on the trip. Natalie got a new princess nightgown, Mckay picked out guns, and Nick go legos! One day while Mckay was playing with his guns, he asked Nick, "why did you get legos? Legos are so dumb and guns are so cool!" It was so funny. He was totally obsessed with guns the whole time. Several princesses were shot and all the pirates were definately wounded! Nick was obsessed with the legos though too. One day when it was raining, he just wanted to sit in the hotel and play legos, rather than go out and play!
Natalie loved the princesses and fairys.
We had a great time! Thanks Zundels for all the fun and to Nancy for enjoying the chocolate as much as I do (mmm tigger tails! I love those things)!

Notice the nice wet street!

Sleeping Beauty

This is how I found Nat today for her nap! Thanks Kristy for the cute princess attire, she loves it. Before we went to Disneyland, the kids each earned money to buy something special. Natalie had the choice of all the dolls, toys, etc. She picked out this Sleeping Beauty nightgown- which she has been wearing all day today. Love my little princess. Yes, she does have a very messy face too.

Happy Birthday Natalie!

I can't believe my baby is 3, (and still my baby!). It has been so fun to have a little girl in our house and to bring the color PINK into our lives. She has taught us about the love for dress ups, and changing outfits 5 times a day. She loves princesses, playing pretend, and playing house. I am often carrying a baby around the house that I am babysitting while she is out 'shopping.' Natalie loves to help me in the kitchen and create her own salad while I am making something- a salad can be a bowl of ANYTHING cut up really small. When she adds a little Ranch, she will eat it all. Natalie still takes naps-thankfully- and when she wakes up, she loves to watch Little Bear and have piece of gum. She loves Chocolate just like her mommy and if I ever sneak a piece, so does she! We love you Natalie and are so grateful to have you in our family.
