Love this picture

My friend Stephanie did a photo shoot with my kids a while back. This was one of the pictures on the cd she gave me and I love it! Of course the real one is better, for some reason this is dark. Probably my camera. I told the boys that when they have to go into time out they are going to sit there and hold this picture! Thanks Stephanie!

Hannah Lu is 2!!!

Hannah Lu's favorite thing is Minnie Mouse! Ever since we went to Disneyland she has been obsessed with Minnie Mouse. So it was easy to pick out a cake this year which by the way she wouldn't eat! Funny girl!
I cannot believe she is 2. I seems like yesterday we were at the hospital with her. She has developed beautifully! We couldn't be happier with the progress she has made. Other than having glasses at an early age, she is completely normal and she continues to defy the odds of her syndrome. We have truely been blessed!

We had a little family party for Hannah Lu. As you can see she had a lot of helping hands to open her gifts.

In the end this is what she ended up with! Plus a tricycle! She will be so exicted to have something to ride of her own come this spring! We were happy to have Auntie Amy with us to celebrate Hannah Lu's birthday! Wish we could have had everyone with us! Maybe next year!

Valentines Day!

Valentines Day....I am not a big fan and never have been. So I decided to make the best of it this year. Shawn even suprised me with flowers! Plus he got a little something for each of the kids. Above is what I put together for the kids. Shawn attempted to pick up some heart shaped pepperoni pizza's from Papa Murphy's but they were all out. So I made cupcakes for dessert after our dinner. A normal Valentines day would have consisted of just a card to one another and a treat for the kids. So this Valentines day wasn't that bad after all this year!

Partied out!

Happy Birthday Garrett! 4 years old!

Garrett wanted a Handy Manny cake this year. Glad I was able to find one! He is so popular, but hard to find. Shawn and I found the only Handy Manny doll at Disneyland and we had to have it! Garrett also kept the tradition (that he started) in giving his cake the Garrett touch. Last year if you remember he sat on his cake at the store. Oops! This year he poked 2 fingers in his cake before we even bought the cake! Too funny! He also has a history of putting the Garrett touch on his siblings birthday cakes as well! Happy Birthday Garrett we love you, and are so blessed to have you as a part of our family!
Jackson got Garrett Handy Manny's helicopter. Garrett had fun puting it together with Jackson.

Hannah Lu got Garrett a fire truck shirt.

Shawn and I got him the Handy Manny tool box. That was the hit present! Hannah Lu absolutely loved it because when you push the button the tools go up and down and sing! I think I am going to have to find something like that for her birthday in Feburary!

Auntie Amy got him a Safari set! He loved it! Thanks Amy we love you!


Oh the work that Santa puts into Christmas! Doesn't matter what I do, I am always up late!
Jackson opening his ipod shuffle! Now he really can't hear me!

Garrett with his most prized gift! His handcuffs! Could care less about his bike!

Hannah Lu so excited about her baby, she forgot about the grocery cart it came in! I couldn't even get her picture, she was running towards me so fast with it! All in all it was a good Christmas. Now for Garrett's Birthday!
