Two really is terrible :)

I mean it in the nicest way, but my daughter turned two and suddenly she's changing her ways. Which makes me think that the whole "terrible two" thing is really not far-fetched. She won't sleep in her crib anymore which throws a kink in naps and bed time...way too time consuming for me! Not to mention the getting out of bed 3-4 times. I guess I am just in denial that she's growing up.

We had a good weekend...spending time with friends, swimming, ufc fights :) Love you all, hope you are doing well in your parts of the world.

Happy Birthday Sydney Kate!

Oh my goodness...look at all her Ariel stuff! Thank you so much everybody!

Birthdays Galore!!!

I have to say this year was one of my best birthdays ever!!! My sweet husband surprised me with a fun gift: my sister Kate. It was a great gift (good job honey). We went to dinner with friends and it was one of the funnest nights I have had in a long cheeks were hurting from laughing at you, Dallas. And all of you who remembered me on my day, thank you. I really did feel like someone special and I appreciate you all. And now I'm remembering how I felt 2 years ago around my birthday (besides fat & pregnant)...very excited for the arrival of my first baby girl. And what a joy she has been to our family. We were so happy to FINALLY have her much awaited "Ariel" party tonight. It was a lot of fun and she now owns every Ariel toy known to man! June is such a busy birthday month...and we LOVE it!

put my arms around his neck, hug him tight like this...

Celebrating fathers! Just a little shout out to the dads in my life. First, my bubba Michael. Life would be a lot less fun without you around. And what a wonderful dad he is. And I wouldn't be around to share in the fun if it weren't for my own dad...who I love very much and wish him the very best this week. As for the "in-law" dad or should I say Pop, I couldn't have asked for a better one! I just love you all and hope your father's days were wonderful. You sure are!

Bathing Beauty.

Yesterday we went to our little buddy Krew's first birthday party. I couldn't help but snap these photos of my little bathing beauty! She looked like she was posing for a commercial or something...what a sweet girl she is. And what a fun party, Krista!

Quick trip to Californ-i-a!

What a quick, little, fun-filled trip we had to California. We got to see Bunkers and go to Disneyland with the kids. Sydney saw Ariel and that was her favorite thing...she waved and waved at her. And she got an Ariel phone! Payton was tall enought to go on the big rides, though the "dark parts" made him a bit nervous. I took him on thunder mountain and he yelled "I'm miserable, I'm miserable" pretty much the whole time. He was hilarious. He loved Pirates and got the gear to play the part. Anyways, lots of fun! What a fun place to spend time together.

Happy 80th Roger!

We had a wonderful time dancing the night away and celebrating "Neder Pop's" 80th birthday last Saturday. It was a beautiful night with lots of food and great fun. The kids couldn't keep their feet off the dance floor and we all enjoyed watching them. I think Roger really appreciated all the effort and it meant a lot to him. Payton sang "Happy Birthday" on the microphone and he was the hit of the show, that and Sydney's dance moves! Love you Pop!
