Lexi 2nd birthday

I can't believe that my sweet little Lexi is two!! She is such a nut. I love her to death. She is so sweet . She loves to help me clean (she is a little ocd). She also LOVES shoes. I am so lucky I got the best little girls. We had a little family party for her. She wasn't all that in to her presents. Which is actually a relief I was worried that I would have a hard time keeping her out of the presents under the tree after she realized you can open them.

We gave Lexi the cutest shoes. She really is crazy about shoes it cracks me up.

I never wanted to have a baby around Christmas. Now I would love to have a baby every Christmas. It just made Christmas even more perfect. Lexi was the best Christmas present ever! I love that crazy little girl.

Happy birthday baby girl!

Kristi also took some family pictures for us here are a couple. She does such a good job.

We had a fun Halloween. The girls were matching "princess" fairies. I had to add the princess for Andru. We went to the Mayors walk.

Then we went to our families houses and then to dinner.
Lexi Loved being dressed up.

Andru didn't. She got to spend the night at Dave's parents house with Cole and Chloe. So as soon as we got to their house she got out of her costume. She didn't like it because it was itchy. Everything is itchy to her she has such sensitive skin.

It was still a great Halloween.

First day of Kindergarten

We had a busy week with grandma's funeral. Greg and Janice came out and stayed with us. It was really nice for us all to get together. The funeral was on Monday. Wednesday Kristi and I decided that we should do something fun with Easton and Andru for their last day of summer. We went up to remember the Maine and had lunch then Kristi took some pictures, I stole a few off her photo blog I love them she does such a good job.
I love this one of Lex she is so pretty.
Andru me and Lexi

And sweet little Andru washing her flip flops.

Then Thursday was Andrus first day of kindergarten. So sad she is growing up so fast.
She didn't hate it but she didn't really love it either. I think it will get better for her once she makes some friends.

It was a sad, fun crazy week.

Poor little Lexi when fuzzy needs a "bath" she gets really upset. Today I gave fuzzy a "bath" she was okay for a little bit. She just kept crying and saying my kankie my fuzzy. But when I put fuzzy in the dryer she got really upset.
Poor little girl stood by the dryer screaming forever.

The best part is when fuzzy is all clean and Lexi gets SOOOOO excited.

She LOVES her fuzzy.

The sad thing is fuzzy will need a "bath" again soon.

This and That....

So its been a long time... Sorry.
I turned 26. Dave and I had our 6th wedding anniversary. Andru graduated from preschool.
Janice and her girls came out to visit. It was so good to see them we have missed them so much. Then we went to Denver to visit Lori and Wes. We had a lot of fun it was nice to have Dave get a week off work. While we were in Denver we went to an aquarium.

Andru and Lexi loved it. It was so fun we got to feed sting rays they kinda bite but it was still really neat.

We also went to a children's museum.
The kids had so much fun they got to just run around and play.

And I just have to show you the crazy Hail. I love storms so I thought it was pretty cool. I was worried about my car but it didn't get any dents thank heavens.

So sorry that is about all that has been going on with us.

Easter, Bowling, and some random pictures

Sorry I know this is kinda late. We had a really good Easter. Andru got to play with Cole and Chloe, she has missed them so much. We had an Easter egg hunt at Grandmas. Lexi was just excited to run all over the yard she didn't really want to pick up any eggs.

Lexi has started to love coloring.
We just set her on the floor with crayons and paper she LOVES it.
I think mostly just because she loves doing whatever Andru is doing.

We have never really done family home evening. But a while ago we decided that we would just have Monday be family fun night. Yesterday we decided to go bowling. Andru loved it, she was just sad that she never got a strike like her dad.

Lexi just loved the m&ms (big surprise).

Kristi's sister in law got married this past weekend. Kristi asked me if I could make their cake. a few people have wanted to see pictures of it so here you go.
p.s my mom did the flowers

Andru is 5!

Yesterday was Andru's Birthday. She is 5!!!!!!!!!Crazy.
I let her pick out her own cake she was so excited.
We had family come over and open presents and have cake and icecream.

She got lots of fun stuff.
Dave and I gave her this super cute bed. I love it so does Andru.
I saw it in pottery barn. But man it was crazy expensive. So Dave showed Josh (the guy that works with him) and asked how hard it would be to make. He said he could do it and I think he did awesome. Thanks Josh.
I am going to make some cute little pink curtains for it.

She had a really good Birthday. I can't believe she is 5. She is such a good girl she is so sweet and easy going. I think she is so much like Dave. We are so lucky to have her.
We love you Andru. Happy Birthday!!!

Cute little Lexi

I just wanted to post some cute pictures of Lex. She got into my drawer full of headbands and decided they were necklaces so she put them all on.
Her hair is getting so long and she is growing up so fast. It makes me sad.
