Happy 1st birthday princess....

WE MADE IT...to a year. Actually I should say Emery made it to a year. There have been many times that I wondered if she was going to make it (because of the boys of course), but she made it and we are even more excited to have her here now then the day she was born...It just keeps gettin' better. We love our little poopsie!!

videoWe were going to have a princess theme, but couldn't find a princess cake pan so we settled on what they had...a butterfly and yes I made it so don't look to closely at it. After I got done making it, I realized the frosting wasn't going to be as fun as it should be for a 1 year old so we sent white grandpa to the store to get a cupcake that she could enjoy eating and we could enjoy watching. When he came home he had balloons for her. Who knew that balloons were soo exciting. Sorry about the sideways video, again... Thank you black and white grandma and grandpa for coming to Emery's birthday party. We love you!!!

The boys thought it was hilarious when she shoved her face into the cupcake

YUMMY!!!

White grandma and grandpa gave her this baby and stroller. She loves to walk her baby around the house.

Black grandma and grandpa gave her this cute cabbage patch doll. Funny story about that...Everyone always tells me that Emery looks like a cabbage patch doll. I totally agree and have been looking for the exact replica of her. I know it's out there somewhere. My mom found this one with light brown hair and blue eyes. I wanted dark brown hair and blue eyes, but we we haven't found it yet, so the beautician in her decided that she would just dye the hair brown. Well after a full day of trying, she found out that plastic hair doesn't dye quite as easily as real hair. Oh well, Emery didn't care if the doll had dark brown, light brown or any hair, but thanks for trying anyways mom. Love you!!! Ü

Cabin fun

Over President's Day weekend, we met Britney's family and my parents up at their cabin in Island Park. It has been a while since we have been up there and I forgot how fun, beautiful and COLD it is. It was so fun to see the cousins play just as we did as kids.....so many memories. It is my kind of vacation....eat, relax, play and eat some more. Noah couldn't get enough of the snow machines. He was pretty sure that he could drive it by himself but a 5 year old on a fast machine with lots of trees didn't seem like a good idea so we let him "drive" us around. He added a snow machine to his list of must haves...after a boat, motorcycle and a truck of course.

It was Kannon's 2nd birthday so we had cupcakes to celebrate.
Our fam..
Let me out of here!!!!
So we dared Mckeyan to jump off the deck in his underwear....and he DID it. Except I don't think he thought about having to run back up to the cabin afterwards. It was really funny to watch.
