Happy Birthday, Blaise!

Blaise celebrated his first birthday this past week. Can’t believe it! We had a party for him last weekend, where he celebrated with his cousins. We had some of his favorites…popcorn and smoothies!
Blaise before the festivities began…playing with balloons.

Joshua was ready for the party to begin. He couldn’t wait to help his little brother open presents.

Blaise wasn’t very interested in opening presents. He chewed on this almost the whole time.

He wanted to get to the good stuff…his cake!

On Thursday, we celebrated again. This time he was a bit more into the whole opening presents thing.

He was still more excited about eating his birthday dessert though. This time he had some brownies!

Just a little messy…

This winter has been so mild. We decided to spend some time at the park on this beautiful day. Here are a few shots.

Caleb…acts just like his daddy!

Blaise having fun on the slide.

The boys swinging and climbing trees. Sorry the swinging one is kind of blurry, but I love Joshua’s face!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Pics A Week

It’s that time again!  Here are some pictures to get you through until next week.

The boys are enjoying some video game time.  Joshua is either really good and can play with one hand or really  bored…he sneaks in some booger picking.

Blaise enjoyed his potatoes…a lot!

Joshua’s first dentist appointment. I think his favorite part was picking a prize at the end.

Picture(s) A Week

Okay…it’s hard to just choose one picture. So this time you’ll get four.

The boys love having me take their picture when they are jumping off of stuff. Then they run to me and ask to see it, and then run back to whatever they are jumping off of and yell, “take my picture!” I loved this one…Caleb has his cape on and the way his feet are positioned, it looks like he is taking off.

Joshua loves to to hug and snuggle. He’s getting his snuggle fix with Blaise.

What baby doesn’t love playing in the cabinets? Blaise thought it would make a great seat as well.

The boys love playing with Daddy. At first it was just Blaise enjoying a ride, but once the other two saw Blaise, they all jumped on Daddy’s back.

Whew! One week down…bet you thought I wasn’t going to make it, since it is Friday. Enjoy!

A Picture A Week

I’m trying to keep this family blog alive, so I’m going to post at least a picture a week of whatever awesomely, cool thing we are doing! And since I didn’t make it a New Year’s resolution, I won’t feel bad if I fail!
So yeah, New Year’s Day has come and gone, and me and the boys are trying to get back into the swing of things. We had a wonderful Christmas break. I think we are all missing having Daddy home. Anyway, here are a few pictures to highlight our Christmas break.
We celebrated our family Christmas on Christmas Eve morning, before we headed up to Burlington to celebrate with the Lee family Christmas Eve night. Here are the boys the night before in their Christmas pjs.

Caleb and Joshua were super excited to sleep by the tree that night!

Joshua had some great pictures, and I love this one. I couldn’t believe that he was so excited over batman bandaids in his stocking!

Last year, the older boys received power wheel trucks for Christmas. This year, Blaise got a smaller version (thanks, Grandma Lee). He enjoyed pressing the button and making it go. Of course, his older brothers had to show him how it worked.

We took a quick trip to TN to visit my Mom. We went nature sight seeing while we were there. Caleb enjoyed posing for pictures, as usual!

We even managed a trip to the zoo. I know, I couldn’t believe we went to the zoo in December. The weather was great, and the crowds were small. A perfect day to go! Ben got attacked by a giant bee, so it wasn’t such a great day for him, but the rest of us had fun!

Hopefully, I can keep to my plan so you can enjoy many more pictures of our little family.
