Happy Birthday Bodie and Annelise!

Not even the sugar kept him awake!


This picture HAD to be posted! Dimple proof!

Happy Birthday to you!

Little Man, Big Lollipop!

Aunt Shelley!

They are so wonderful with their brother.

Annelise at play.

It's hard to believe it's been two years. Take it from me, the time has flown by so fast. The twins are two come morning and I'm not sure we are ready! I'm still not use to calling them "kids". Not baby, or infant. It's harder than I thought to let them grow up. It never occurred to me that the moments would be gone before I could capture them all. So here we are on the eve of their second birthday and all I can do is sit here and think about all the amazing times we have already had. All the accomplishments they have achieved already. The milestones we have passed and the ones rapidly approaching. In just ten and a half hours I will have two year old twins. Two!
Thank you Bodie and Annelise for making me a mommmy! Happy Birthday sweet babies!!!!!
We love you~

Two year well check ups!

The two year well check ups were today. Bodie is keeping his steady growth pattern but keeping things under the radar at 21 lbs. and 29" tall. With all the food he eats you would think he would be a giant but he's more of the "Didn't see him coming" type and is waiting to give us the giant growth spurt later! I swear half his weight is in those big brown eyes!
Our Annelise (a.k.a. Anna Banana, the Nanners, Nanner pants) is taking the lead at 26 lbs and 31" tall! We were expecting her to be a bit bigger but WOW! 5 whole lbs.!! Still only lands her in the 20%. Go figure! Both babies are happy, healthy, growing, learning, and loving so all is just as it should be!

It's like Wordless Wednesday. . . But on Thursday with words!

Is this one of the three cutest faces you have ever seen? I mean for real? How could he be more sweet? Love him!!!!

We know how to have a good time!

At Wyatt's birthday party.

Michelle's son Matthew couldn't keep his hands off Brayton. He LOVED him dearly!

Annelise at the river. All those adorable bathing suites and here she is in her diaper almost every time. Go figure!

He is equally as cute in person!!

Bodie and his new haircut!

Riding the jet ski. He likes to do the gas himself now! I am in so much trouble when he gets older!
Rub-a-dub-dub a bunch of toddlers in the tub!

That's right! We know how to have a pretty darn good time and I'm not afraid to say so myself! Although the weather has been very wishy-washy lately and can't quite decide if it's going to be hot or cold, we have gone full steam ahead in our pursuit to have a good time regardless. At our usual Friday playgroup. . . that I MUST tell you has the all time cutest toddlers you have EVER seen!. . . we had more babies in a pool than you could shake a stick at! It was so cute to see them all bobbing around in their floaties while we watched from the grass taking pictures.
We did our standard river runs this week but with a twist! We went to a new location on the same river. It proved to be every bit as entertaining as our normal spots with less hiking. Less hiking is always good when you haul sooooooo much stuff with you. Not to mention 3 children! Did I mention that we have THREE children???? Still blows our minds!
We had a few great playdates but the highlight for me was with my friend Michelle. She is simply a kindred spirit who I admire for her parenting skills and has three of the most delightful children you could ever hope to meet! Our two hour playdate turned into four because we were all just simply that happy! If I had to pick a sister she'd be right up there with my cousins for top billing!
Another fun thing we did was hit Monkey Bizness for Wyatt's birthday. He hit the big 4! Makes me want to say 4-0. . .. but he's just 4. Plain old 4. Still, he gives 4 some serious sassiness! They played with all my other friends children and ate their weight in cake! Good times for sure and we will be headed back in the future!
I almost forgot!!!! I cut Bodie's hair!!!!! I am still sad about it but I had a photographer coming to take pics and I didn't want to look back one day and wish I had trimmed it. So, I cut it! I may never do it again since I'm still a little sad over it but he looks adorable and the photos have turned out amazing. She only let me see a few but so far I love them!
Lastly, Brayton is growing like a weed! Seriously!!!! This kid will pass up his siblings in no time! He's an absolute joy and although he's been the most work of all three. . .it's worth every bit of extra effort! His eyes are the bluest blue of any of the children this young so perhaps they will stay that way. Brayton is the perfect addition to this very busy family that has no problem finding a good time!

Oh Rolley Polley. . .Where are you?

The river always feels so good when it's been so hot!

Bodie loves to get a ride from Daddy!

Looking for Rolley Polley and any other member of the bug family!

My own little bug!

A great place to find spiders!

Both Bodie and Annelise have a new love. No, not some friend's adorable toddler or even a toy. Believe it or not I have shown my children the joys of bugs! That's right! BUGS! Personally, I am scared of most all of them but especially spiders! However, I managed to suck it up and handle a few so my kids could learn about all the little creatures that invade our property daily. With how crazy our week was I was happy that we had at least one calm afternoon at home. .. in our grubby clothes. . .looking for bugs.
