February Happenings

Anyone up for a game of surprise ring around the Rosy? (scroll down to see surprise)
 Best Friends

Surprise Roy is buck naked! 

We are often finding him running around with no clothes on lately

Brahm cute face! has been food stalking for a few weeks now so we started giving him little tastes of food and he LOVES it! He reminds me of Luke the way he eats

 When we lived in TX the kids would stand on the porch when James would leave for work and wave good bye. Now they sit on the couch and watch him go each morning. They love there Daddy and anxiously await his return.

 Brahms favorite place to be is anywhere on me so I have taken to strapping him on so I can get stuff done. I love this wrap, it takes a little time to get it on but it is the most comfy carrier I have used.

LOL! Roy came upstairs dressed like this and growling. 

 Our Heart snowflakes the kids made these.

backyard sledding. Mom had the idea to shovel a sledding hill in our backyard. The kids loved it! Especially Roy
Everyone else had gone in and he wanted to just go over and over again. Our little wild man.

We went to the Dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point with Grandpa yesterday (a good time was had by all)

Roy trapped in the stroller playing some drums.

Sand and Water Table
(Roy has a tendency to just take off sometimes at one point we thought when he was playing with this he just took off and I found at the entrance to the museum. He was easy to spot because he had on the black apron) You have to keep a close eye on this one!

Bella was board at first until she came upon the creative activities like the dinosaur making and sand and water table. She thrives off of creating things.

 Luke loved the museum and was just excited the whole time, asking all kinds of good questions.

 Happy Baby!

 This is what we do with runaway 2 year olds! Feed em to the Sharks

 We caught Grandpa Marc by surprise.

Royce's 2nd Birthday

Roy had his 2nd Birthday Jan 27, 2013. James and I are so happy to be this sweet boys parents, he blesses our lives and are excited for each new day with him.
He has grown and changed so much in the past year. 

2 year old Royisms:
  • Royce loves to play, play and play. He is creative and likes to dress up in household item, especially the colander which he uses as a hat and the pop corn popper lid which becomes a shoe.
  • He still loves milk, bottles and smoothies. He is not a big eater. He doe have quite the sweet tooth and seeks out and devours anything with sugar. We know when Royce is hungry because he starts tearing apart the pantry and the fridge.
  • He is good with balls and likes kicking and throwing them, he can catch them pretty well too, he is also an excellent climber. His favorite place to sit is on the kitchen table.
  • He loves playing with his siblings. He and Luke wrestle and he likes to swipe Bella's toys just to get a good reaction.
  • Roy is a man on a mission! He really enjoys having tasks to accomplish. He goes into a zone when he is in the process of doing something.
  • He loves being snuggled. He always comes for a hug and kiss when he gets hurt (physically or emotionally).
  • Everybody loves Royce, what can we say but the kids got charisma.

We took them swimming at James Uncle Rons house with cousin Jessie and Brad and their kids the afternoon before his b-day. 

Sunday was Royce's birthday. We gave talks in church that afternoon and it was an experience to remember. Luke and Bella were doing an intermission song ( "I Am a Child of God") between James and I speaking so they were up on the stand with us. We thought they would have total stage fright and sit quietly in their seat. We were wrong! They were squirmy and wiggly while I was talking they both stood up right next to me and started playing with things Bella even started dancing at one point lol! They did end up singing the song and it was so sweet to see how brave they were. We loved it, but we also learned something that day.
After church my Mom and James sister Heather and her family came over for a little party.

My healthy version of an Elmo cake :)

These sweet brown eyes kill me

Cousins! and my Mom
