Happy 10th birthday Peter!!

Peter is now 10 years old!

Yep!  He is now in the double digits!  So big now!  So, it's only fitting to add a baby picture of him!  I can still remember it like it was yesterday.  
My Mom went with me to just a routine doctor's appointment and we were so looking forward to having chinese for lunch.  It turned out the doctor and Peter had other plans.  Peter ended up being born about 5 hours later!  Of course that is the short version of the story.  I figured you could do without the labor and delivery details.  

He requested that I make an Oreo Pie for his big birthday celebration!  It was quite yummy!

His birthday menu was the following:
Baked Potato
Break for presents
Oreo Pie

I was planning on grilling the steak and potatoes outside, but due to the enormous amount of rain we have been getting my George Foreman and crock pot were there to save the day.

Aaahh, the first present of the evening.  Abigail decided to photo bomb the picture!  

He was SO excited to get this shirt and I don't know why!  What exactly is Minecraft anyway?  All I know is that Peter loves it!  He learned about it from one of his friends at school.  I will have to thank that Mom (she knows who she is) for that!  

He LOVES the Cubs!  So, he was excited to add another Cubs poster to his Cubs themed room!  I have no idea where we are going to put this!  

Peter is also a fan of Tony Hawk and the color red!  

Finally, the Oreo pie with 10 candles!!  

Peter also got a brand new bike and an Ipod touch!  

The next day he said it was the best birthday!  

I don't know how we will be able to top that at his 11th birthday!!

Abigail is 4!!

I haven't posted anything in awhile.  The weather is slowly getting warm enough to play outside and I was busy planning a 4th birthday party for our Miss Abigail.  It is remarkable how fast they grow up!  Every single day she amazes me so much with what she knows, wants to do, and wants to learn.  

I had to share a picture of Abigail from when she was 2.  She was so cute.  She is still cute, but that chubbiness has gone away and I loved that.  She didn't say "no" or "I can do it myself" yet.  Not like she does now!  

Here she is with her birthday smile and a new pink barrette in her hair.  She actually has a good smile for us!  It doesn't usually happen.  Normally she likes to goofy and stick out her tongue or even cross her eyes!  Yes, I said cross her eyes!  

She loves those fans!  What kid doesn't?

Now you get to see her birthday outfit!  A multi colored tutu with a pink shirt!  I think she even wore the tutu when she went with my husband to pick up the balloons!  It was her birthday!  She can wear whatever, it's her day!  

Aren't big brothers nice?  I wouldn't know because I never had one, but Abigail does and she was loving all of his help.  

So, 1 birthday down and 2 more to go.  Peter's is the 17th and Maison's is the 30th!  Whew!!
