Pickles and Ponytails

I am excited to say that Mya has experienced some more "firsts" in her life. The other night Calvin was eating pickles and Mya thought she had to have one. Calvin, of course, was happy to share and she liked them. As you can see from the pictures, Ayden thinks she is crazy to eat something wierd like that.

Tonight when we were getting ready, I thought I would try to put Mya's hair up. It worked. It is not the best picture but you can see her first ponytail (all 10 hairs) in the picture below.

Mya's Party

Mya's party was on February 14th. Several family members and some friends were able to come celebrate the day with her! She had a very exciting day and was VERY worn out by the end! Thanks to all who came and for all the cards and presents! Trying out the fork!

Happy 3rd Birthday Ayden!

Today is Ayden's 3rd birthday. It is so hard to believe that he is already 3. He is such a fun kid. He has brought so much joy and excitement to our lives. I am sure there is much more to come!! For his birthday, we took him and his friends to Jump n Play. It is one of his favorite things to do. He had a great time. Evie
Look out girls!

Spiderman cupcakes! Yum!

These men have one of the few occupations where they can be off more days in a week than they work! (a.k.a. firefightes)

Mya being silly!

Baby Ty even came! (He is one of Ayden's favorite little boys!)

Happy 1st Birthday Mya!

Today is Mya's first birthday. It is so hard to believe that it is already here. She is such a good baby. She has already brought us so much joy and excitement in her first year. We look forward to many more. These are some 1 year pictures that my friend Meagan took. Hope you enjoy!

Sledding for all

Calvin had been telling Ayden that when it snowed, he would take him sledding. Well we definitely got the snow so Ayden got to go sledding. Mya and I went along to take some pictures but I figured that as soon as she saw them, she would have to play as well. She was actually sick but she endured for a few rides, which she absolutely loved. Ayden was not so sure about it. Calvin rode with him on the big hill first and then he didn't want to go by himself unless you were pulling him. He went on some small hills after that by himself and had fun just playing in the snow. Hope you got to enjoy the snow too!! Our family self portrait

Family and friends

I decided it was time for a new post. We haven't been up to much.....just hanging out with friends and family. We did make a last minute trip to Illinois to visit Grandma and Papa. We got to see lots of friends and family while we were there so that was nice. Hope everyone is doing well! Ayden and Livia enjoying some popcorn!
Paxton and Ayden or should I say Spiderman and Batman!
