LOOK WHO"S 2!!!!!

Seriously - can't believe I'm here already. Another milestone in my life - my BABY is 2!! I know, I know - it is way cliche to say it just seems like yesterday that she was born - but I remember it so clearly. She was my best baby, I loved every moment with her since she was born. My dear husband kept warning me "You know - she is going to be a 2 year old someday, " but I just thought that would be sometime WAY in the future . . . and now here I am. And let me tell you - she is definitely 2. She began that day by throwing a major fit while I was out walking with my girlfriend. I tried to leave her on the street corner, but she was making SOOOO much noise, I ended up keeping her with me (LOL!). Her favorite thing to say right now is NO-w, NO-w, NO-w (she enunciates the end of her no, no's with a w . . . it is hilarious.) What a monster she is, but how much I love my baby - forever my baby. We had a little party with family and ate cake. It was a fun day, but I still get that lump in my throat when I think of how fast she is growing up - and soon, I will not have my baby anymore -she will be big and I will miss these days more than I can say!! (tantrums included!!)

Pumpkin Patchin' It!

Grandma Pat and Grandpa Brent came into town for a short visit. The kids always love to have them come and visit. We made a last minute trip to the Pumpkin Patch - as somehow both Matt and I had expertly avoided it until now - and spent the night riding the rides and picking out a pumpkin with grandma and grandpa.
Raegan was beyond thrilled to ride her very own pony named Snickers. The six tickets it took to ride the pony was the equivilent of about $5 - but how could we help but ride them over and over when Raegan would smile and laugh the whole time. We are such suckers for her adorable smile!!
You know how kids never do what you asked. We couldn't get Ethan in the picture - or even to smile. So we tried the whole "Ethan - don't get in the picture. Ethan - don't smile. In fact - nobody smile - I want to see a whole bunch of frowny faces." I guess being 4 years old means we always do the opposite of what mom and dad ask. Gotta love how that works!!
Kylie and Lauren hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa Griffin. We had so much fun - thanks for the visit.!
