Happy 2nd Birthday Charlie!

In the hospital 1st Birthday YesterdayToday Charlie turns 2! We had a small family yesterday with my parents. We all had a good time celebrating Charlie's big day and I of course took a bunch of pictures.

As soon as my parents got here, Charlie and Macy ran into together as they were running around the house with excitement for my parents coming, so that is why Charlie has a nice fat lip in all the pictures.

Charlie (and Macy) enjoyed opening his gifts.

He was excited over a soccer ball we gave him (he LOVES balls) and jumped up immediately to go to the tile to throw the ball around.

He knew what just to do when he got his birthday cake and even blew both of them out without any help!
And lastly here is a picture of dad and Seth putting together Charlie's new Thomas the Tank Engine Train Set, which proved to be the hit of day. The kids (and Seth) enjoyed playing with it yesterday afternoon.

We had a great day today! The kids of course were excited about all the presents, and we were able to go to Seth's parents for Christmas with them and and great meal! I took a ton of pictures, but here are just a few.

Emma is obviously thrilled with her new gym:
Charlie with a new car toy:
The kids in front of some of their presents (Someone from church gave us the kitchen set and football toy box a couple days ago because their kids out grew it, so it was nice to have something big to put under the tree, especially since it was free!):

Seth thought it would be fun to make a cake together for Christmas. Didn't we do a good job!:And finally a family picture: Merry Christmas everyone!

Rudolph Cookies

In this month's Family Fun Magazine, they had an idea to make Rudolph cookies. It looked like something fun for the kids and I to do, so that is what we did this afternoon. Today is Seth's day off, so he joined in on the fun too.

I know I am not doing a very good job blogging lately, but I figure I have a good excuse. I will try to get caught up this week. This is late, but on Thursday was Seth's 31st birthday! We celebrated going out to eat on Tuesday and then on Thursday the kids and I made him a cake and Seth opened up his presents.

Catch Up Post

Sorry for the lack of posting the last couple of weeks. We are all doing well and Emma has been a great baby for us! Even the nights are going well! I think I was dreading it so much (the lack of sleep) that it hasn't been that bad at all. Below are a few pictures of the last couple weeks.

The kids and I made "turkey hats" for a craft project one day. Here they are showing them off:

My parents and sister with her family came for Thanksgiving at our house. My mom did all the the cooking, so that was really nice not having to worry about any of it! Here are the kids, they really enjoyed playing with Andrew:Dad with John Nathan and Emma:We celebrated Andrew's birthday and Charlie loved the cake and especially the blue icing:We made our first trip to church this past Sunday, I tried to get a few decent pictures, but failed:
Charlie in his fancy church clothes that my sister gave to him while they were here:And last but not least, Macy modeling her new dress (she is hiding a princess umbrella behind her back, she wanted it to be in the picture, but I told her she had to put it behind her back):

Seth's family also came into to town, but I failed to get any pictures of them! (Seth's familiy, Please email the ones you guys got.)
