Happy Birthday, Brady!

Our baby boy is 2 today! It is so hard to believe. He has grown up so much this past year and has gotten to be such a big boy! Thankfully, he still loves to cuddle with mommy in the morning! He really is a sweetie! He is so funny and makes us smile everyday. He loves to talk and sing all the time! Here are a few pictures to show you just how much he has grown up! Happy Birthday Brady!

Veggie Tales Party

We had Brady's birthday party this past weekend. We went with a Veggie Tales theme because he loves Veggie Tales!! It was so much fun! I had a blast making a Bob and Larry cake and a Bob pinata. (Although I realized when I was looking at the pictures afterwards that I forgot to put the green stem on top of the pinata. I kept looking at it before thinking something was missing, but I could never figure it out. Oops.) The kids had fun helping me decorate and get the house all ready. We had lots of family and friends come over and help us celebrate. It was a wonderful afternoon!

The Birthday Boy

Here is the birthday boy, all full of smiles. He was so excited about his party and had so much fun!

Birthday Cake

Brady was so excited to blow out his birthday candles! He has been practicing everytime he hears people sing happy birthday. He starting blowing as soon as we started singing and didn't stop until both candles were out! He was making pretty silly faces while he was blowing and when he was all done, he was very proud of himself! Then he enjoyed eating his cake!!

Playing Games

We tried playing a few games with the kids at the party. They did "Pin the Nose on Bob", "Hot Potato", danced to some Silly Songs, and did a Bob Pinata. It was very fun watching them!

Opening Presents

Brady was very excited to open his birthday presents! He knew exactly what to do and was very happy with all his gifts. He wasn't real thrilled with the clothes, but mommy was! Thanks everyone for the great gifts!

Rayna and the Big Snowflakes

We got a little bit of snow last week and Rayna was so excited! One afternoon, we had humongous flakes coming down so Rayna went out to try to catch them with her tongue. She had so much fun and was soaked when she was done! So much fun!

Making Valentine Cookies

This morning, the kids and I made Valentine cookies. Rayna wanted to make some to take to the firemen at the fire station. They had so much fun and make a HUGE mess, but it was worth it. Rayna did such a great job at rolling the dough out and cutting out her cookies. Once again Brady just wanted to play with the flour and eat the dough. He was covered in flour when we were done!

Bike Riding and Basketball

We had some beautiful weather on Saturday and got outside for awhile. The kids had fun riding bikes and playing basketball. Somehow I didn't get any pictures of Rayna on her bike. She has finally figured out how to petal and we can actually go on walks now while she rides. It's so much fun!

Finger Painting

This was Brady's first time fingerpainting. For the most part he enjoyed it. Although, he really doesn't like his hands being dirty so he wanted the paint off pretty quickly! Rayna had fun as always mixing all the colors and making her hands as dirty as possible!

Daddy's Shoes

I just love these pictures of Brady wearing Daddy's shoes!
