I wish I was a little better with words like my awesome cousin Kristi.  She just has a way of making up a catchy title etc and I never seem to be able to do that.  Anyway...I digress.

This post is about Alex.  My first born.  My wonderful little boy who is now 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I don't know where the time has gone.  It is so neat because with Alex and Nathan they look sooooooooooo much alike that it is like looking back in time and forward to the future all at the same time when they are side by side.

He really wanted a Pikachu (a character from Pokemon) cake so I did what I could and despite my lack of creativity I think it turned out pretty well.
Then to celebrate with his class I sent cupcakes on his actual birthday as we weren't having a big party this year.  These are supposed to be Poke Balls and he was pretty excited.  That red icing is craziness to get off of anything including faces. HA!HA!

He is in second grade now and is doing very well.  He just rec'd a new to him bike for his birthday and is enjoying the handle brakes and new gear shifting.  Has a passion for reading and especially playing video games.  I have a hard time keeping up but we do have a lot of fun together.

The Princess

She just lost her first tooth about 2 weeks ago and was pretty excited.  Being true to being herself, she didn't want to put the tooth under her pillow so we placed it in this jewelery box and had it open on the bookshelf beside her bed.

One of her creations that she built out of Magnext.  It's just a bunch of manetic plastic pieces and ball bearings and she created this house which I thought was pretty cool as there weren't any instructions. (I'm all about recreating and not inventing)

For Christmas she rec'd a pony and doll from Santa.  She was pretty excited as she LOVES horses.

And one of her favorite gifts this year was a dress she rec'd that came with a matching dress for her doll.  They make a really cute pair.


So here is our little guy.  He is growing rapidly and is a very talkative toddler.  He is adamant about what he wants and can easily speak his mind! HA!HA! He is pictured here as Woody from Toy Story for his first party invitation.
He LOVES babies. "I hold it?"
Here he is sporting his goofy smile enjoying his Tigger housecoat.
He is so much fun.  He speaks and acts like a 4 year old so I forget sometimes that he is still only 2 1/2.  We are working on potty training and he is quickly learning his alphabet.  He is sharp as a tack which keeps me on my toes but mostly he is just a loveable fun little guy and he makes me laugh on a daily basis.

I'm Back....

Well I am slow in posting and have missed some major events so the best way for me to catch up is to do a post for each of the kids.  So here they come!
