Michael turns 4!

Ok, so I'm a little late posting about Michael's birthday.....but it was a good day. We were going to go for a drive just to get out of the house for a little while, but Michael kept asking if we could go to White Sands. So, we packed up some stuff real quick and headed to White Sands. We took Ruby for the first time too. Michael had fun taking her for a walk! LOL Fortunately, she was already worn out enough that she wasn't pulling him around. :-) Then we went on up to Alamagordo to McDonald's for lunch. When we got home Paul got the Christmas tree out and got it up. We waited till Saturday to decorate it though since we were all so tired. We gave Michael his birthday present from us since we knew he would have some to open on Saturday night at his party. As you can see from above we gave him a hat and guns. He loves "being a cowboy"! We also gave them to him right after he got done watching Toy Story so he kept telling me he was Cowboy Woody. :-) He has really enjoyed them. Daddy was trying to show him how to "draw and shoot"! He also received a Lego set (firetruck) and Geo tracks set with a character from the Cars movie and 12 Board Books about Toy Story. He also received clothes, which he was also excited about. :-) He loves all his new toys (and will love the ones that are still coming).

So, lots to do today and tomorrow in preparing for mom and dad getting here so I need to get busy!

Lydia turns 1

So, I should have posted yesterday, but wasn't able to get to it. Lydia turned 1 yesterday!!! I can't believe it has been a whole year already! We didn't do a whole lot during the day (well the kids didn't). Michael had been up at 3:30 in the morning getting sick so it made it a short night for me. He was then not really feeling good all day so they just took it easy. That was fine for me. I was able to get the cake made and everything else I was wanting to do (well almost everything). We did end up having to cancel the party though because we didn't want others to get sick. It was nice celebrating Lydia's 1st birthday as just our family. She had fun sticking her fingers in the icing while we were trying to get the plates ready!

She has really grown and changed in this first year. I can't wait to see her little personality develop even more in the years to come.

I would love to have all the sentimental things to say, but for some reason I just don't think that way. So, I guess I will just leave it at this.
