Blue Harbor 2010

This is the 2nd year in a row that my side of the family has decided to go to a water park together instead of doing a Christmas. This year we went to Blue Harbor Resort in Wisconsin. We love that place! It's such a nice water park and beautiful hotel. All the cousins really enjoyed playing together and it was nice to just relax and spend time together. Enjoy the cute video in the next post that Scott created of the kids on our trip.

Christmas 2010

This year Christmas was so much fun for the boys! Eli loved leaving out cookies and chocolate milk for Santa. (Santa asked specifically for chocolate milk on the phone call Eli received from Santa!) Eli had a hard time going to sleep that night, especially when he knew Daddy & I were in the basement wrapping gifts. Took a few warnings to keep him in bed.
Eli was really excited to open gifts Christmas morning (a little too excited) and Jayce enjoyed playing with all the new toys. The boys spent almost all day playing and then we went to Grandma & Paw Paw's house that evening. We opened our gifts there, then enjoyed a nice dinner. One of the highlights of the evening was playing in Uncle Shawn's extremely large inner tube...they loved it! It was such a nice time together and fun Christmas with Scott's family!

First Steps

Jayce has really been cruising around on the furniture, etc. He just started using his walker and took his first steps! It won't be long until he's walking all by himself!

Uncle Shawn bought some snowmobiles last summer, and with our first big snow, he and Uncle Casey rode them over to our house to show Eli. Eli and Daddy got to ride around in our neighborhood! Eli loved it! Mommy was a little nervous about the whole thing....I'm just going to have to get used to this boys loving fast toys....maybe just a little.

Birthday Parties!

For Jayce's 1st Birthday we had two small with Scott's family and one with mine. On the day of Jayce's Birthday we went to dinner at Heinies then went to Grandma & Paw Paw's house for cake and ice cream. Grandma had a cake made that was exactly like Scott's cake for his first birthday! It was so special! Grandma also got a cupcake for Jayce to eat. He was hesitant at first, but once he got a taste of that frosting, he LOVED it! It was so cute how he would use his pointer finger to touch the frosting! We cleaned him up and it was present time! Eli's friend, Drew, got to join us for the party and after Jayce opened his presents (with lots of help) the boys all loved playing with them! It was a fun evening!
The next evening we headed to my Dad's house for dinner. My Dad & Joey and the Rodriguez family were able to join us. Scott and I brought over pizzas from Columbo's...yum! After dinner we enjoyed the cake! Joey made an awesome Mickey Mouse cake! (She's so creative!) After cake and ice cream the boys all enjoyed some play time and Jayce opened his gift from Grandpa and Grandma. We had a great time being with the whole family & the cousins!Thank you so much to both Grandmas for making Jayce's cakes so special! And thank you all for all the gifts and opening your homes to us! We love you!

Scott's 35th Birthday

For Scott's 35th Birthday I surprised him by taking him to Indianapolis. We met Jared & Meg Johnson and went to the Zac Brown Band concert! Scott was so excited! He kind of had an idea about the least that was what he was hoping was his surprise.....but, he had no idea that Jared & Meg were involved! We had such a fun time and I'm soooo glad Scott enjoyed his birthday surprise!
Happy Birthday, honey! I love you!

We had so much fun for Halloween this year! Eli couldn't wait to go trick-or-treating! I love seeing the excitement in his eyes! Jayce dressed as a Dalmatian (Eli's past costume) and Eli was a Fireman! They looked so cute together!

We started the evening by heading to Grandma and Paw Paw's house. Of course Grandma spoiled the boys with presents and lots of treats! They had so much fun!
We then headed back to our neighborhood to go trick-or-treating. We invited our friends, the Goods, to join us. Cole also dressed as a fireman! The boys looked so cute together! Jayce got to ride in a wagon, which he loved! He was too cute! We only hit about 10 houses in the neighborhood, then headed back to our house for pizza. The boys loved handing out the candy to the other trick-or-treaters. The boys had so much fun & it was a great Halloween!

Notre Dame Photo Shoot

Our good friend, Jen Marr, has been taking pictures for a side business. I've looked at some of her work and just had to call her and see if she could get some pictures of the boys. We headed out to Notre Dame on a perfect fall day. The boys did really well for being there so long and Eli loved seeing the Notre Dame campus. I'm so happy with the pictures! We're just so blessed with our beautiful boys! Here are some of my favorites!
