forgot to post this a while ago!

This was a video of Anderson's birthday pancakes. He LOVED getting to have Happy Birthday sung to him. I had to do it like 4 times after this, each time re-lighting the candle and each time, he sang along too! It was to cute. Having a 3 year old is so much fun. Anderson is quite the ham. He talks non-stop and says the funniest things. I can't even keep track of it all.

His John Deere birthday party was adorable. My friend Sammie took pics of the event. You can view them HERE. Sammie and her crew came up for the event and I just loved seeing her again. We were practically glued together in Wichita and I will admit it been hard to find a friend as good as her here in T town. We stayed up til 2 or so in the morning the night before the party frosting the cake (yes, I made that!!! i am so proud of myself) and cupcakes, and just chit chatting away. It was sooooo good to have her and her family here.

So, I have had a lot going on lately and blogging has become very low on the priority list. Oh well, thats life! But this pic was too cute not to post as a little hello to my blog readers (both of you).

Happy Spring!

Big Boy!

Anderson is 3! I can't even believe it. He is so proud of being 3. It is so funny to see him tell people how old he is. I love the stage he is in right now. He is sooo funny and just a lot of fun. Lately he loves The Backyardigans, John-ga-Deere (John Deere), trains (of course, Thomas), going to preschool and bossing the dog around (the only thing that will let him). he says the most hilarious things. Last week he said,

"mom, I am going to say lets go to Starbucks and you say yes, ok?"

he announces the color of his pee, and the number of poos he puts in the potty, every time he goes. He is very independent with the potty. Almost too independent.

He likes to take rests, not naps.

He loves pre school and is learning so much.

He is still a cuddle bug and loves to rock at night. But only if you tickle his arms while you rock him. and don't even think about stopping the tickle for more than a second or two.

He loves the "zachius song" and "bop bop dinosaur" songs. he knows all the words!

On his actual birthday, we had grandparents and AJ and Kurt over for pizza and presents. He picked out a cake from Baskin Robbins (mmmmmmm!) and was very proud of it.
We had a John Deere birthday party for him Saturday and that was lots of fun too! I will post pics of that soon. Well... one of these days. :)

Easter 2010

We had a wonderful, laid back Easter and I couldn't have dreamed of a better way to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Easter is my favorite holiday. It is the most important day to me as a christian and is a day to celebrate the HOPE God gives each of us. Lee's family joined us at church. The message was awesome. I had a few teary moments. Always a sign of a good sermon. :) We went to my mom and dads for lunch and lots of family time. Played some washers, croquet and ate brisket. It was a perfect day! Here are a few snap shots.

This is just to good. The kids had all they could handle.

Adri wore a special necklace that was grandma Pam's as a baby.

Happy Easter
