Happy Happy! Merry Merry!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did. It was so much fun this year now that Iris is old enough to open presents. She still doesn't get the whole Santa thing, but she had fun ripping open the presents. Santa brought her a fish this year, which she was really excited about. She calls it "pish" while doing the sign for fish, so I guess that's it's name for now. She had fun opening all of Donevan's presents too.

I love this hat that Aunt Allison made for Donevan. She also made a really cute tutu for Iris but I haven't got any photos of it yet.

She loves working on things. Fixing things or "helping" us fix things. So she really loved this little toolbox/workbench with all the tools.

Here is a cute picture of the loves of my life.

Donevan has been so smiley lately. He just gets this huge grin on his cute little face. I love it!

It was finally a nice enough day to get out and play in the snow. Iris loved it so much, I had to drag her screaming into the house when it was getting dark.

I said she likes helping whenever we are working on anything. Here she is "helping" Evan when he was hooking up our dishwasher. She's even got the plumber's crack going on.

Here are few just really cute pics that I had to share with everyone. I can't get enough of the kiss face and Iris looked so cute in the little present shirt that Grandma Jessie made for her.

A Few Firsts and Other Cuteness

We took the kids to the Sacramento Zoo last week. Iris LOVED it. She loves animals. She especially liked the monkeys. But she was really intrigued by the flamingos. She'd never seen or heard anything like them. They sounded like really loud geese.

She thought this was pretty funny, playing peekaboo through this little hole. Our cute little joey.

This is how Donevan enjoyed the zoo. He slept the whole time. What a handsome boy. I can't believe he already a month old. Those 4 weeks went by really fast. He is growing so quickly. Before I know it he'll be walking and talking like Iris.

You can see how big her eyes were looking at the flamingos

I finally broke down and trimmed Iris' hair for the first time. I didn't do the best job, but it's out of her eyes now. It doesn't look too bad.

It is finally long enough to put in pigtails. Just when I thought she couldn't get any cuter...

She looks pretty cute in cowboy boots and her Ariel jammies too.

Happy First Birthday Brett!

Today is my nephew Brett's first birthday. I can't believe he is that old already. I've actually never met him, but he sure is a cute boy going by all the pictures I've seen of him. I have sympathy for the kid, being the third child. I know how you feel Buddy. I hope he had a good first birthday. Wish I was there to celebrate with him.
