Pirate Ana Elisa

They took this picture of Ana Elisa at her friend, Logan's, birthday party. She was running around with her friends at the party when they called her over to take the picture. She was so busy having fun that she just poked her head into the hole and then took off running again. When I showed her this picture, she gave me a confused look and said "But I didn't wear that to the party, mommy!"

She had so much fun at the pool searching for treasure, eating fruit off of plastic swords (toothpick kind of things), and catching golden coins that they threw into the pool. It's so fun to watch her with her friends. She always has so much fun! Thanks, Michelle, for the great party!

Happy Birthday Bryan!

I can't believe it's been a year! He is the most wonderful little boy ever! We are so blessed to have him in our family.

What makes him so wonderful?

--He is so sweet and loving, always loves to give hugs and kisses
--He loves to sing, if you make sounds, he'll copy you and sing along
--He looks so cute walking! He started walking at 9 months and I still get a kick out of watching him walk :)
--He has the most beautiful eyes!
--The cutest smile ever
--He plays so good with Ana Elisa and is such a good sport
--He loves to clap and gets so excited about things that he starts to dance
--He is a great eater
--He's just a little guy (very little), but he has sure thinks he's a big kid :)
--He loves going up the stairs but don't try to make him go down on his tummy, he'll panic. He would rather try to go face first!
--He wakes up earlier than Ana Elisa, so when she wakes up he gets so excited he starts to dance
--He loves to get into everything and climb everything
--He is great with the broom. He loves to sweep.
--He loves to play with Ana Elisa's strawberry shortcake remote control car and his rattle controlled car. He'll spend hours with them.
--One day he spent a good half hour entertained by a short blue ribbon.
--He loves to be pushed around in the toy car in the back yard. He'll run out there, sit down, and wait for someone to go push him.
--He loves to color. Yes! He actually gets pens, crayons, chalk, etc. and colors!
--He doesn't like to sit down in the bath tub--except when you ask him if he's all done!
--When he hears Emerson's voice or when Emerson comes home from work, he gets so excited and starts yelling "DA! DA! DA!" He does this when the phone rings, too. He always figures the person on the other end is his DA.
--He loves his family...including his Grandma, Grandpa, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. He may be afraid of everyone else, but he knows who his family is, even though we only see them once every several months.
--I've never seen a kid with such natural soccer talent. He's been kicking that ball around since who knows when. He knows it's supposed to be kicked, and he loves it!
--If he can get a hold of a wipe, napkin, paper towel, or toilet paper, he'll get down and start wiping things down and cleaning.
--I could go on forever! He's just plain cute!

Thank you, little guy, for bringing so much love and joy into our lives!

Happy Birthday to ME!

Last night we went with our good friends (Amy, Greg, Sara, and Jason) to celebrate Amy's and my birthday. We had a so much fun--it was great to have a little date night out. I think we'll be making this a new tradition for all of our birthdays!

Emerson has school today, so the kids and I will be celebrating all day as we drive around getting all of my free birthday meals around town! Yes, I'm a sucker for free stuff!!

We are also going to go to Chick-Fil-A for ice cream--Ana Elisa is so excited!! Last night we got home around 11 pm and Ana Elisa was still awake. She whispered to me that when the sun comes up it will be my birthday and we get to go to Chick-Fil-A!

What a great birthday! I got to go out with the love of my life and my dear friends, and now I get to spend the whole day with my beautiful babies :)
