Happy Birthday Brielle!

My baby is 2!! She is so big! This girl is so fun and had brought so much joy and laughter into our home. She talks so well that I just cant believe it! Full, clear sentences! Its so fun and she says the funniest things! She is crazy and wild and acts like a little boy sometimes! She isnt afraid to get dirty and is always climbing and jumping off stuff. She plays rough and is just a little tornando! She runs everywhere and is so busy all the time! She never slows down! (Merrills word were hell on wheels! haha!) She is so smart and can already sing the abc's and count to 10 and spell her name...well atleast Bri. We just love this girl!! For her party we had a luau at the splash pad. She loved it! We all had fun. She loved opening presents and loved it when anyone would sing happy birthday. All morning she kept saying "mommy sing it..macie sing it!" she would even sing it to herself! and the whole week before her bday we would ask her "who's bday is it going to be?" and she would say "my happy bday!" We love you Bri and are so happy you are part of our family!

You are so smart and beautiful and will do great in kindergarden!

Happy Easter

Candy and egg hunt

Bri would find candy and eat it as fast as she could!

She had the furrowed brow look the whole morning!

Macies 1st dance competition

Waiting for awards
Dancing around while they wait for the judges...ohhh memories!

Macie with some of the team members

The trophy!! And of course the flowers she requested!

Macie had her very first competition last month. She has been in dance for 3 years now and has had recitals but this was the first competition. And I have to say...What am i getting myself in to? Seriously! I did cometitions when I was young but it is totally different on the other side! My dad let me know I was officially a drill team mom! AGHHH! It was fun, just hectic. They did 2 dances and did really well. Macie smiled so big and did great. I asked her if she got nervous in front of all of those people and she looked at me like i was stupid and said "!" haha!! She is truely a performer. She also reminded us to make sure and get her some flowers! She won a trophy and she was so proud of herself and we were so proud of her too! She had a lot of people cheering for her..Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Rikelle, Aunt Larissa, Aunt Bobbie, Uncle Butch, Aunt Jen, Grandma Lesli, Mom, Dad, and Bri. We were so happy to see so much love and support from our family. It meant the world to macie and to us! We love you all!

Big girl bed!!

We decided to put Bri in a big girl bed. I was really nervous because I have always just put her to bed awake and she will roll around and play in her crib until she falls asleep. i was sure we were going to have a few rough nights and rough nap times. This girl has not been easy with any transition so I just knew this would be difficult. But she surprised me! She has done so well! She has not gotton out of it once! Even at nap time! I am so relieved! Wheeew!

Happy 5th bday macie!

Brielle enjoying her cupcake!
My big girl!

This is a hard one! I just cannot believe my baby is 5! Where did the time go? I get teary eyed just thinking about it! She is such a big girl! She is so smart and so independant. She is so beautiful and I cant imagine my life without her! For her bday party I took her and her friends to my work(the paul mitchell school) and they got their nails, toes , and hair done and then got to perform on the stage...soooo macie! They loved it! Macie told me she was the lead singer cuz it was her bday so we had to take her microphone and she rocked it like a true rock star! They had the whole core class of like 20 people come and whach and she sand and danced sooo hard! She is so funny! They all cheered and clapped and she loooved it! I know I say this all the time but she is going to be a super star!! She is meant to be a performer! I thought with all those people whaching she might get nervous but she didnt skip a beat! I love this girl!!!
