Christmas 2010

It was a wonderful Christmas this year. Mostly because we were with many of those we care about. We are most thankful that Grandpa Kirk is on the mend. He is very much loved.

Quinn with his Great Grandpa Bud and Great Grandma Carol. They celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary a few days before Christmas.

Chaos at Auntie Sharon's Christmas Eve.

The great thing about opening presents with cousins is that you can play with their toys!

The afternoon after driving back home. Quiet and messy!

Georgia Turns 3!

Is she really three years old? This wonderful, saucy, sweetheart of ours. Not afraid of much. She orders Rocky around like a little brother and isn't afraid to grab his collar and drag his 100lb body into another room to play. When somebody does her wrong she will approach them and insist on an apology, even if they are several years older. The ultimate negotiator. She wants to cuddle for "just a little bit" after we read her a story before bed. She wants to stay in the shower "just two more minutes." When I tell her that something isn't for her or she won't like it, she says "but we can try mama." When it is time to turn off the T.V. she says "just one more show" complete with holding a single index finder in the air. Social butterfly at the party and old lady at home. She loves a party and continues to be the last kid standing without crying. But she still likes everything in its place. She has a careful nature when entering new situations and we call her our little risk calculator. You have probably never seen a kid so careful with a stomp rocket. Caring and compassionate. When I tell her that she has done a good job she often says "you proud of me mama?" If someone seems upset G will ask "are you doing o.k.?" She still loves to kiss the top of Quinn's head and is super sweet with him. We live for the often uttered "I love you Daddy" and "I love you Mama." Pretending is fun. She loves dressing up, sparkles, tutus, makeup and accessories. Helping is more fun. She likes to help mama makes morning smoothies and build things with tools. True to herself. She tells jokes and loves to dance and sing even though she received the not so talented genes from her mother's side. Happy Birthday Baby!

Happy birthday to you...

Is that Tinkerbell on my cake?

Some of the party guests.

Georgia and her cousins Emma and Lilah.

The woman who made mama and daddy's wedding cakes made Georgia's 3rd birthday cake! Georgia wanted a purple cake and she sure did deliver!

Healthy Kids

Georgia had her 3 year well kid appt and Quinn had his 9 month. Both had their shots without tears and were very cooperative during their eye tests. Georgia actually loved her appt. She loved getting weighed and said "it's just a shot" when the nurse told her how well she did. Also, when I asked her what the Dr. saw in her ear she said "a tunnel" like that was the silliest question ever.

Anyway, here are their impressive stats:

Height: 40.25 inches (98%) She is in 4-5T clothes!
Weight: 33 pounds (74%)
BMI: 14 (10%)

Height: 29.75inches (94%)
Weight: 20.4 pounds (54%)
Head: 45.5 (70%!!!!) he did not get his mamas small head

Hey people! We are super healthy!

Why is she looking at me like that???

O.K. time to watch TV
