Our baby . . .

turned two today!

Every time one of my kids has a birthday, I always say, "how did that happen?" But honestly, I mean it every time. I can't believe how fast it goes. Denver was seriously just a baby yesterday!

Denver: Mommy and Daddy are so very proud of the little man you're becoming. You fill our lives and home with so much love and laughter and joy and we are so blessed to have you in our family. We are thankful everyday that God chose us to be your parents. We love you two-year-old!

All dressed up . . .

. . . and no place to go.

Hats and shoes - two of Denver's favourite things. He LOVES walking around the house in anyone's shoes and often has a hat on his head too.

Here he is one night before bed. It's so much more fun to dress up in shoes and a hat than it is to wear pajamas!

Oops - Victoria's shoes with a little heel aren't the easiest to walk in!

A purple princess dress is also quite fun to wear around the house. This is how Denver met Daddy at the door after work one day. LOL! I think the girls had something to do with this one! (But no worries, the yellow shirt underneath is a very masculine hockey shirt!)

Baking with Grandma

Grandma Carmody came to visit last week which is always such a treat. However, it seems that so much is planned when Grandma comes to visit but the time flies by and only half of the things get done. But this time baking was on the list and baking they did. I love it when Grandma bakes with my kids because my poor children have a mother who is challenged in the baking department. Victoria particularly loves to bake and cook and I'm hoping that will continue. She loves to pretend that she has her own cooking show (just like on tv) and perhaps one day she'll have her own REAL cooking show on the Food Netw*rk - which is her favourite channel!

Here are some pictures of the baking fest. Don't worry, Denver removed the lego from the baking sheet before it was placed in the oven.

Oops - I forgot to take a picture of the finished product after it was baked. It was homemade granola bars and they were really yummy! Thanks Grandma!

Thankful for my Blessings

I know it's not Thanksgiving anymore but I still want to show off four of my favourite blessings for which I am extremely thankful.

And what would a picture post of the kids be without some outtakes?

Denver and the bug

Once upon a time there was a handsome little boy who was quietly enjoying a pretend picnic outside.

When all of a sudden he was distracted by something moving beside his plate.

He attempted to catch it with his little fingers . . .

but finding that next to impossible, he thought he'd attempt squooshing it with his fork.
When that didn't work, he tried one more time to pick it up and was successful.

The little creature crawled quite quickly all over his hand . . .

until he eventually fell off.

When trying to pick it up again proved futile,

he decided to try another method to take care of this little creature.

Yep, that did the trick!

Look Mom . . . I squooshed it!
