Silly cousins

 Um duck, duck goose in a straight line? Silly kids to lazy to make a circle.
 I got Cecily and Colten dancing in H&M. Silliest kids!

 Splash pad time
We had a blast at Seven Peaks in Salt lake!
We stayed with Sarah and her family for the past few weeks which was so fun! We loved spending time with them! Sarah and I have had so much fun being together the kids to until the last week or so, then they just fought a lot so it was good we left for CA for a couple of weeks! We are so happy we will get to see them all the time now that we will be in UT. We have loved hanging out with Carly and Scott too! Their boys are so so darling!


Oliver is 2!!

 We had a little, low key party for Oliver, it was perfect for him! He loved the ice cream cones and opening presents! We did pirate themed because Oli loves pirates! He goes around saying "arrr matey" all the time.

                                  His cousins came to celebrate with him!

 Mini cupcakes and mini ice cream cones were perfect for our little man!
Oliver is so fun at 2
He LOVES sports more than anything. He always has a ball in his hand or is playing some kind of sport. He will shoot baskets for days or hit the ball off the tee for hours. He loves golfing in the backyard with Dad too. I think this makes Kreg very happy that his boy loves the same things as he does. Oliver is really coordinated so it makes it all the more fun to watch! His speach has really developed over the last little while, he can communicate very well and he loves to sing songs that he knows. He can count to 26 and knows the ABC song, he won't however do either on demand very often, He can be very stubborn, but then again look who is parents are! He loves to do whatever Cecily is doing and they get along really well. If they are apart for more than a half hour they will greet each other with big hugs and say I missed you! It melts my heart. I hope they always have a close relation ship. Oliver loves to point out the colors of things, he knows all the colors except yellow confuses him at times. His favorite color is blue. His favorite song is the wise man and the foolish man, he call it the Rock song. He loves to sing and dance and help out with chores and in the kitchen. He is such a sweet loving boy, he loves to tease but then he will feel bad and solemnly apologize. He has just started with the tantrums and the whining the last week or two and its annoying but at the same time hilarious when he throws himself down on the floor about something. I just say excuse me sir, use your words please. He will pop back up to his feet and tell me what he wants. ha ha so silly. He loves to eat strawberries, pizza, oatmeal, eggs, and yogurt and treats of course. he doesn't have a lovey, but he will often go to bed with balls in his hand or in his bed. He sleeps from 8-8:30 every night and takes a 2- 2 1/2 hour nap everyday. He is on the move as long as he is awake so I'm not surprised he sleeps so well. I am having a hard time not babying him and trying to keep him little, but he proves to me everyday he is getting big and growing up whether I like it or not!


Last little bit of MN

  Oli is our little sports man, he loves to "shoot it" but since this hoop wouldn't raise he would sit in his chair and shoot from there, it was like he was to lazy to stand! ha ha He really just wanted to be lower than the hoop. good thing he got a new hoop for his birthday!
 Last time riding rides at MOA

 This was Oliver's last day of Preschool. He loved going to school just like CC, he loved the arts and crafts and toys. I loved going with him and spending special one on one time together!
 We were crashing our cars together, he would laugh so hard everytime!
 Our pre school friends! I made some really good friends through the ECFE program and so did my kids! It will be one of our greatest memories from MN. If only UT had a similar program.
 This is MS. Jill the parent educator. She has been so special to me that last three years, I have learned so much from her and have gained so much confidence in my parenting because of her validation. I will be forever grateful to her and her example to me! I felt like we were kindred spirits of sorts, She walked me through some very important years and stages in our lives!
 Ms. Kim Oliver's fabulous preschool teacher. She is so fun and lively! She made school such a fun happy place! I loved her friendship as well!
These were Cecily's 4's teachers, Ms Emily, Lynne, and Kathy. Cecily had a great year at school and made some really great friends! She learned so much and grew a lot academically and of course socially. She is so excited for kindergarten in the fall!


Minnesota Friends

Before we left MN we got together with our best friends and had a photo shoot! It was so fun and now such a treat to have the memories of these friends to look back on forever! I couldn't have been more blessed to have such great, caring, loving, supportive women in my life and their sweet kids to be friends with my little loves. Rhonda made a fun photo book for us and its so fun to look at and remember that day for forever!
