First Haircut

We finally took Andrew for his first haircut. He and Adam went for haircuts this morning at Pigtails and Crewcuts. They do such a great job and the boys both did a great job. Andrew sat perfectly in the fire engine. I can't believe it is already time for a first haircut....every day it is just a little bit harder to imagine how much he is growing up.

Pigeon Forge

Last weekend we had the best time! We spent the weekend in Pigeon Forge, TN with our friends the Fannings. I've known Susan since high school and we've stayed in touch all these years. They had rented a cabin in Pigeon Forge invited us to join them. We had a wonderful time and all the kids got along well and we're already planning another trip before too long.
Adam has already been asking when he'll get to see Landon and Lydia again. :) He loves having someone to play with.

Enjoy the photos!

Our Little Monkey

I changed the background of the blog to monkeys a week or so ago for a very good reason. We have a major little monkey around our house. Andrew is climbing on everything all the time. It amazes me what a climber he is because Adam never climbed like this. We have to watch him all the time to make sure he's not climbing on tables, chairs, etc.

Andrew loves his food!

I must say one thing....we haven't found anything yet that Andrew won't eat. He is so different from Adam. He will eat most anything we put in front of him. So, we've said good-bye baby food, hello everything else. You just never know what he is going to pick up and eat. :)

My Birthday

I guess it had to happen and I had to have another birthday. It certainly beats the alternative! :) So this year my birthday was on Friday, the 13th. I decided with those odds, I had to take the day off work. It was a wonderful, lazy day. In my opinion, the very best kind! Ken did get one of my favorite cakes from Publix with raspberry filling and cream cheese icing. Yum!! My boys made this the best birthday yet!


I'm walking and I'm coming to get you! Watch out!!

What Can You Buy with $20

For Adam's birthday, he got $20 cash from Grammie and Grandpa. He was so excited because we told him he could take the money to Target and buy whatever he wanted. He must have looked at every toy aisle. We're trying really hard to teach Adam about money and what things cost so for him to have $20 to spend was really exciting for him.

So after much debate, he decided on cars. I'm sure you're not suprised. Not just one car - but several cars! In fact, several packs of cars.

Thanks Grammie and Grandpa!!

Happy Birthday Adam!!!

I can't believe Adam is 4 years old. I don't know where the time went. Sometimes I look at him and I can't believe he is my little boy. I know that it is part of growing up and that it happens with everyone, but wow. We celebrated his birthday for almost a least it seems that way. :)

On February 28th we had a party at Chuck E. Cheese with all of his friends from church. He had been begging for months to have a party at Chuck E. Cheese. This happened to be the weekend that it was pouring rain, so when we arrived for our 10:00am party it wasn't too bad. But, by 11:00am, the place was packed. There was not a single table avaialble in the entire restaurant. By 12:00, we were in the van headed for home. It certainly is nice to be able to go somewhere, walk in with a cake and have them do all the rest of the work, but what is even better, they do all of the clean up! :)

On Adam's actual birthday, March 4th, we took a cookie cake to school, which we had to bring back home. It had been processed in a facility with nuts...oops! We took back safe cupcakes. He got a few more presents and we went to his favorite restaurant for dinner - La Parilla. They sang to him and had him wear a sombrero. It was too cute.

On March 5th, he took Wall-E cupcakes to church to celebrate. By this time, we were just about birthday celebrated out. We were - Adam wasn't! He would celebrate every day if you'd let him. Enjoy the photos!

February was a Blur

February was such a blur.....I hardly remember it. In fact, was it really only a month ago? On January 31st, Andrew took his first 3 steps. February just picked up with more walking and falling. We celebrated Valentine's Day and went to Adam's class party at Primrose. Even though he doesn't usually go to Primrose on Friday's we took him on Friday the 13th for his party.

We made the very tough decision that Adam will only go to Primrose this fall. We've loved his time at the church and love that he loves our church so much. He'll go to Primrose full time and be in their Pre-K 4 year old class. He has so many good friends there and really does seem to love it there as well. We've been so lucky to have the kids in such great schools.

My job has continued to be really busy. I guess that's a good thing. We'll be watching President Obama's budget recommendations to see how that will impact my job. I hope that it won't, but if it passes to make all student loans through the direct loan program, I may be on the job market in the next year or two.

We also started the Financial Peace University at our church. This is Dave Ramsey's class. It is so good. We're in week 4 now and it has been a great experience. We have a few more weeks to go and are looking forward to the remainder of the class.

Here are a few photos from February. Hope you enjoy!
