Happy Birthday Audrey!

Saturday we celebrated Audrey's 3rd birthday with some of our family and closest friends. Since Audrey is infatuated with the color pink, we of course had a PINK party. Here are several pics from our shin-dig!

Wylie supported his sister by dressing in pink...what a nice brother! I'm sure he'll be thrilled when he's older ;)

Happy Valentines Day!

Wow, what a week! I am actually looking forward to this week ending soon! My poor husband has been horribly sick with the flu since last Saturday and Wylie has had a little cold for the past couple of days too. So, needless to say, this week has been very uneventful and boring...
BUT we did make cupcakes last night for Audrey to take to preschool, so here are a couple of pictures...
She saw a picture of valentines cupcakes in a magazine last month and has been asking (over and over and over) to make them ever since.
Wylie was there to observe the baking process.
Of course we had to dye the frosting other color would please this princess!
Here is the final product! Those kids are going to be bouncing off the walls after eating all this sugar! Sorry Miss Nancy! (Audrey layed in bed for 2 hours before falling asleep last night...and thats just from licking frosting off her fingers!)

My Little man

Here are 2 new pics of my little man...

In this one Wylie is laying on his new quilt, made by Michael's mom.
Isn't it so adorable!!

He's got the most kissable lips!

Duck Pond

We had another great weekend...and as always, it flew by!
On Saturday we had a fun family day and went to a local pond to walk around and play on the playground. Audrey had fun chasing the ducks (those poor ducks probably despise all the little kids!) It was an absolutely beautiful day and it was nice to just hang out, relax and enjoy each other's company! Ya know, its tough here in So Cal with our 75 degree January days!

Us girls in our matching pigtails...

Wylie's motto: Open mouth, insert fingers!
And of course our little white boy has to wear his hat in the sun...we wouldn't want all those bald spots to get sunburned! Sorry that you got mommy's skin tone, little man!

Taken seconds before she chased them back into the water...

Wylie sittin' like a big boy in his stroller...

Yesterday (Sunday) was another good day. We had an exciting day at church (they just announced that we're starting a satellite campus right down the street from our house). We're excited to see our church grow!

Then after church we had our friends Aaron and Zach & Kristi over to watch the super bowl game. Needless to say, Kristi and I were on kid duty while the boys watched the game but we all had a great time. Since Kristi is a mommy-in-training, she jumped right in and helped a lot with Wylie (when she could detach Audrey from her hip!)

Last night we had a couple of rude awakenings! First, at midnight Audrey woke up screaming hysterically so Michael jumped out of bed and ran in her room. Apparently she had stumbled out of bed (half asleep) and got stuck between the bed and her nightstand. Hmm, don't really know how that happened. Then at 4am on the dot, Wylie woke up, as he has the the last several mornings. What possesses him to wake up at this ungodly hour each morning is beyond me but I want it to STOP! Obviously this wasn't the ideal way to start a monday...but we've got to keep pushing on (and drink caffeine!)
