Time at Pop & Emi's and Baby Brady Pictures

Me and the kids made the treck to Poppy and Emi's one weekend that Sean was hunting.  (Have I used that opening liner on another post recently?) :)

Amanda and her little fam were there also.  Me with the two littlest:

Brady looks like he's enjoying being the center of attention, don't you think?

He thinks I'm funny!  :)

I took some pictures of him using my Valentine's Day props, and he just looks so cute, I had to share!

Um, he's a natural.  Look at him posing for them... little ham.

His face just makes me giggle in this one.  Hehe!

My little eater.  And messy face.

Anna wants to be JUST LIKE her brother.  Even when he's eating like a doggie... or maybe especially when he's eating like a doggie.  She thought this was hilarious.

Fun at Brooks & Gentry's House

One weekend that Sean and his Dad went deer hunting, Mimi and I (and the kids) drove out to see Brooks & Gentry (and Shannon and Jerry, of course)!  :)

I thought I'd get some pictures, but nobody was really cooperating with me.  I got some of Anna because she can't run as fast as the others.

The group shot was a big ol' FAIL this time around.

And beautiful Miss Gentry stood still for one shot also.  She needed a picture in her tiara ;)

Anna - 18 Months

This precious faced baby is 18 months old today.  She is simply and absolutely one of the best things that's ever happened to me.  She is a feisty little thing, but with more love in her heart that she knows what to do with.  She will stop everything and give hugs at any random time throughout the day.  I will make her mad because I won't let her play in the cat litter, but she will still run into my arms to cry about it.  All I can say is look out world, she's going to make us all crazy, but no one will be able to keep from loving her.

Dex's Family Birthday Cake

On Dex's actual birthday, we had a family cake.  He wanted a Paw Patrol cake and proceeded to tell me everything he wanted on it, including a hovercraft, the ocean, a fire truck, and oh yeah, don't forget the five Paw Patrol puppies!  WELL... that didn't happen.  But it still tasted good!

Haha :) 

He wanted an orange cake, we did an orange cake!  I'm a pro now at coloring cakes :)

Oh yeah.  She can DO IT HERSELF.  And no thanks to the high chair.  She will now just go ahead and sit in the big person chair, if you don't mind.  She's going to be a handful...

Christmas Day!

Wow, I'm finally getting around to putting Christmas pictures here.  I guess I have a little catching up to do :)

I didn't use my camera much on Christmas Day, which was nice.  Sometimes it's a burden and I just want to relax and soak up the time with my family without that distraction... 

Having said that - Here's what I did get!

Anna was still pretty puny Christmas morning from a double ear infection and RSV.  Poor thing woke up crying and continued to cry for a good portion of the morning.

Candy seemed to help.  

She loved her new boots!  Except she wanted them on.  Then off.  Then on.  Then off.  You get the idea.  

What. A. Mess!

Santa ate his cookies and drank his coke and milk.  Sean's Santa got milk and mine got a coke, so OUR Santa gets both, I suppose.  Ha!

Anna with her new baby stroller.

Dex showing us where the reindeer ate their food!

And finally, Anna with her new grill.  I can't wait until we can play outside with all this stuff!
