Christmas Tree 2011

Dylan and Gavin helping us on the hunt for trees.

It doesn't look like Lily is helping too much :)

We found it! The perfect tree!

And there it is all decorated! Nice, right?! It is much better than the tree we had last year which was way too skinny (go here to see it). No presents under the tree when I took this picture but no worries, there are some under there now!

Lillian's First Dance Recital

There she is! The star performer :) Her first time wearing make-up and getting her hair curled. It was a big day!

Backstage, waiting to perform (along with about 100 other little girls).

Grandpa Troy and Grandma Karen came up to watch the performance.

So did Grandpa Ron and Ma Nett!

I was a little worried that she would get shy and not perform but she did great! It was really cute and her class did their dance to "Sleigh Ride". She also came out for the finale and waved and bowed to everyone. I am sure there will be dance recitals for years to come :)

Halloween 2011

Creepy Dylan

Cupcake Lillian and Jack-o-Lantern pizza

Dance class costume

Brother and sister

Cupcake Lily in downtown Wenatchee.

The kids got so much candy! I don't think that Dylan would have ever quit if I hadn't made him stop (at 8:30 by the way). Lily had so much fun - she would run up to the houses and knock on the door. That was quite a change from last year when we had to carry her most of the time :)

Sunday Funday

I looooove Sundays. Mainly because I don't HAVE to do anything. Today we made Kool Aid playdough from a recipe that I found from this cute blog. Super fun, super easy.

Party Rock

Have you seen this? It is amazing! I wonder how long it took them to do all that?

Dancing Lillian

Here is a picture of my dancing little Lily - not like Dancing Baby Lillian here. I will update with more pictures and maybe video soon now that we have our new camera! We are only allowed to watch one lesson a month so it will be after that!

So... I thought facebook was addicting (well it is) but now I am addicted to Pintrest. If you haven't been there you need to check it out. Apparently you need an invite (not too sure why?) so if you would like me to invite you just let me know!

Lillian's 3rd Birthday

Lily and Daddy


Kids and cake/cupcakes.

Her new fishing pole!

This past weekend we had our 10th Anniversary (can you believe it?)/Lillian's 3rd Birthday party at Troy and Karen's house in Kennewick. We had a lot of fun! There was amazing food, music, drinks (including Jake's requested keg of Rainier - that he almost finished too) and most importantly friends and family. Thank you to everyone who came and helped us celebrate these special events - we love you!

If anyone took any pictures please send them to me! (above are all the pictures that I took - total)

How do you know when it's time to take down your Easter decorations?

When birds start building nests in your decor maybe? Yep. That's right. That's my front door and my Easter wreath that I have neglected to take down. And yes, that is a real birds nest. Maybe I will do better with Halloween?

Spring? Please.

I am willing it to be spring! It has been so cold here and I am so sick of it! Look at how white I am - I mean, give me a break! Where is the sun?

Our New Fence!

What do you think? Pretty nice, right? (it is only partially finished)

Parade Anyone?

The kids at Classy Chassis, pretending they like each other.

Jake and Dylan in the Apple Blossom Youth Parade (Dylan is the one with the shorts on and the hat backwards. Looks like he is harrassing someone)

Erin, Lillian and Rhyan at the parade from the back.

And now from the front - cute girls! When did they get so big?

We had fun watching the Apple Blossom Youth Parade. If you are not familiar with Apple Blossom just let me tell you... it is a big deal in Wenatchee. There are two parades, two consecutive weekends. A youth parade and a grand parade. People start setting out their chairs and reserving their spots along the parade route more than a month in advance. I've never really seen anything like it and I am not really in favor of it but hey, what can you do? The grand parade has to be the biggest parade that I have ever been to and it is great! The youth parade is also a lot of fun. Lily especially like the mascots - it was pretty funny to see how excited she got to see some of them and the princesses too! Apple Blossom is a great time and brings a ton of people to Wenatchee!

Easter 2011

Pretty sure that I have the cutest kids ever! We all had a great Easter. The kids hunted for eggs and found their baskets which contained a new bike helmet for Dylan (I know, boring right?! Come on Easter Bunny can't you do better than that?) and a Ballet Dora for Lillian. I don't know how many weeks I heard about Ballet Dora before Easter came but I know that it was a while. And how many times has she played with it you ask???? About 2. That's a two-year=old for ya I guess. :)

Coloring Easter Eggs!

I know this is SUPER late but I thought that I'd share some Easter pics of the kids. They had a great time colorning eggs at the cabin!
