Rite of Passage

Doesn't every child have to experience this game? Today was Haylee's first time.




She had a blast. She's so adorable. Brandon and I had fun playing with her. It's so fun to watch her so much enjoying being with us. She is an angel.

McKay's Birthday Party

kay... Facebook just totally simplified my life. Did you know you can post a link to an album that anyone can view? I've been struggling with how to post pictures on our blog and on fb (facebook), and where to post pictures so that people didn't have to be bored with 50 from one event on my blog, but people could see them if they wanted elsewhere... I tried photobucket, but it was another step I didn't have time to do... yadda, yadda, yadda.... so now, I can just post to fb, post a few highlights to our blog, and post the link and if you want to see them all, you certanly can! I'm very excited. So... here's the link to the album if you want to see lots of pictures: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=115257&l=35cbf529f6&id=675650759

We had a small family gathering to celebrate a whole year with this sweet baby boy.
Here are a few highlights:








Cousins!

WOW what a mess!!!!
Thanks to everyone who came. It was a fun night.

Cinco De Mayo

Well, I'm a sucker for using holidays as learning and fun experiences, so here's our Cinco De Mayo adventures for this year. It was fun doing fun things and teaching and learning with my kids. We're grateful for our friends with Mexican heritage and what they bring to our lives.

Mexican Omelets for breakfast
We went to the library to read books about Cinco De Mayo.

Lunch at a Mexican Restaraunt




Mmm... Nachos for dinner!And what's Cinco De Mayo without a Pinata?

More Haylee Birthday fun

Haylee got to open a few more gifts a couple days after her birthday, and they were so special I wanted to share them too...
Reading her card with Daddy


Papa and Granna gave her her very own REAL camera! Soo cool! She loves it! She loves to take pictures like Mamma so she has so much fun with this. I'll have to post some of her pictures sometime.
I love the joy she has... such beautiful sparkling eyes. Her daddy's eyes. I call them 'sunshine eyes.'
Sparkles on her hands (the wrapping paper was glittery.)


She got an adorable baby doll high chair from Nana and Poppy. She loves her baby dolls, and doing things like Mamma, so this was a perfect gift for her.
She was so sweet and loves it completely.
