She's 5....finally!!

I can't believe it has been 5 years! Where oh where has the time gone!! 5 years ago today I was still in the hospital after her birth and Jon was at Children's watching over our little girl! We are so lucky that we have a happy healthy little girl home with us now. So many CDH parents don't ever bring their babies home, each year Ari has a birthday I just feel so lucky. All the stress her health causes me seems so un-important compared to what other families have faced/are facing. We are lucky lucky lucky!

Ari had a SUPER fun "real birthday". Since her party isn't until Sunday we decided to just make Thursday F U N!

SURPRISE! She woke up and found a little Dora cake that she got to eat for breakfast, and a couple presents!!


She could not believe she got baby alive some food~! Thanks Auntie...mommy never let's her get food for this dolly!!
New big girl outfit for her bday party~ (don't mind our walls in the background, we are mid-kitchen update)
She was trying to show D how to "sit like a model"??? lol
Next: We headed off to Country Village so Ari could get her nails done. Pappy came with us and played with D in the park while we did our girly stuff.
Out of about 10 shades of pink/purple, Ari chose Silver. Why am I not surprised.
Pappy & Ari at the park in Country Village. I had never been here before, or at least not since I was a kid, and it is sooo fun! I can't wait till summer we'll be here all the time!!
After the park Pappy took us to lunch at Taco Bell, and then off to Old Navy to get Ari the outfit he promised her after working so hard and learning all her letters!! She also had some money from Auntie Jennie so she picked out some lip gloss and paid all by herself..she loves to do that and get a bag & receipt!

Pappy & Sissy
Finally we headed off my grandparents house for dinner. Grammy surprised us and came with another cake for the birthday girl and some flowers!! She even got a little tea set from great grandma....lucky little girl!!
Then we got home and found flowers & balloons from Ya Ya & Grampa!! These flowers are pretty enough to eat...and she tried!!

One last shot my my cutie kids!
One shot of our new floors! I can't wait for our kitchen to be all finished!

Good Times

As usual, not a lot going on around here. We have stayed healthy this last part of winter and I'm crossing my fingers that we stay that way. Seems like everyone I talk to is sick. So if you are sick, or have just been sick, please stay away from us! I'm going a little stir crazy here and can't wait to be able to go to the mall or the children's museum or someplace, ANYPLACE! I figure one more month of being extra careful....one looong month.

Mama & Noah

He's Awake!!

We went out to dinner with Uncle Brad on Saturday night, Ari and I dressed as twins & did our hair the same, we thought we looked pretty cute ;)
Ari and her favorite guys
We went out to a new BBQ place in Everett..Ari was so excited to get hot wings for dinner! If you know Jon and I you know we are big fans of meat, preferably off the bone smothered in sauce, so of course I'm thrilled that she digs right in. (actually if i cook boneless pork chops or something she always asks why I can't just leave it on the bone) That's my girl!


We are painting our kitchen (finally)!! The kids think painting on the walls is pretty much the coolest thing ever. Ari has decided she wants to be a painter when she grows up, no joke. It's better than Taco Bell which was her previous choice!
Ari helping daddy paint:
D had to get in there too
I just love this picture...

Summer is never coming,

so we'll make the most of the crazy blizzard we had here Sunday & Monday! We are still completely snowed in up here. OK, not "snowed in", but we are still totally covered in snow! Here's a few pics from Monday:
I told Ari to pose cute for a picture. I'm not entirely sure she hasn't been sneaking into my TIVO and watching E! How else did she learn this "over the shoulder pose"?

My Cutie Patootie almost 5 year old!! Crazy snow dog, it really makes her insane... D wasn't cooperating for photos, but I feel bad not having any of him on here..so this is it.


Not that funny of a video, but I love Ari's comment at the very end. (please ignore my talking, I sound like a drunk smoker)

Don't bother D when he's talking on the phone:

and the award goes to....

I'm sure I'll be getting the award for the Worst Blogger Ever pretty soon. Truth is there isn't much going on (including no baby yet!!). We've been laying pretty low trying to make it through a winter with no trips to Children's...so far so good (knock on wood). Such a bummer when Ari has to miss things she get's so excited for, like Tatum's birthday party!! I actually explained it to her and I think she gets it, it's just too bad that we couldn't take D either since it wouldn't do us any good to have him get sick and pass it to Ari. This is always her bad time of winter so we're just trying to make it through March with out going to any "kids" places. Her bday will be the last weekend so she'll get to see all her friends and play!!
Anyways, here are some photos from the last couple weeks, mostly of D's little family birthday party. Enjoy!

I decorated the house the night before his party after he went to bed. He woke up and had no idea what was going on! He was sooo excited!!
The birthday boy!


I took 5 shots of this, and this is the best one (literally) of Jon's eyes.
Grammy and the kiddos before the party
Luckily he has a big sister to help him out on his birthday!!
I found these pics on my camera, I didn't even know she took them, lol
