Spring Break

Starting the break off with some good old fashioned R & R in the sun.  These two are too cute for words.  They have been really enjoying being home together.  They have been playing non-stop with each other and loving it.


We went to the gardens and Kellan was mesmerized by the trains.  He couldn't get enough of them.  When we got home the only thing that he wanted to play with was our train set.


We went with cousins and some friends to make things more fun.  Here everyone is pretending to be afraid of the giant dragon.  They had a lot of fun pretending.


We spent a good half hour taking turns going down the slide and screaming at the top of our lungs.



These two little guys are pretty good friends.  Kellan LOVES Seth.  He will kiss him and hug him and try to help feed him, which isn't all that helpful sometimes.


The aquarium was a big hit. Kellan especially was excited to see all the fish.  He really LOVED the sting rays.  He would watch them for a while then come and tell me all about them while jumping around in excitement.




We also had some soccer games with the girls and those are always really fun to watch.

Fruit Dip

I was totally getting after Jayla to be careful not to spill the fruit dip all over her soccer uniform when Michael told me to look at my own shirt. LOL.  I guess I had no room to talk.


Birth Mom Package

We were so lucky to get a package from Jessa's Birth Family!  They were so sweet to send us some goodies.  We felt very loved, especially Jessa.  We love her Birth Family!



Happy Valentines Day

We enjoyed some valentine treats from grandma and grandpa.  We are so loved!







Kellan:23 Months

This little guy is BUSY!  He is the cutest little boy ever! We kinda like him.









Piano

Jayla has been doing really well with piano.  Michael has been teaching her since January.  She is really loving it and she seems to have a natural knack for it.

Box Cars

We made some cars out of old boxes.  The kids colored them and then they would push each other around in them.  They even put blankets in them and put them in front of the T.V. to watch their favorite show.  They had a lot of fun.

The Zoo

We went to the zoo for the first time in a long time.  Kellan is now old enough to enjoy the zoo.  He got really excited about all the animals and trying to learn their names and sounds.






Basketball Juice


Kellan is a big sports fanatic already.  (Please just ignore the pink sippy cup.) He gets really excited when any sports come on the T.V.  This energetic boy will hold still for a good 15 minutes watching ESPN with his dad.  He loves his football, baseball, and his basketball.  Anything that is round is a "basketball,"  even the round grapes on the juice are called basketballs.  Now he always asks for "basketball juice."

Christmas with Grandma

This cute lady worked hard for us all week cooking and cleaning and wrapping and shopping.  She made Christmas a good time full of love.  She is an amazing woman and worked hard despite all the pain of her knees.


Kellan was helping Daddy open all of his presents and was actually getting into it.


My brother and his kids.  We love these guys.


My dad, brother, sister-in-law, and her son...we were glad they had the day off to come visit with us.


We got to spend a lot of time with these guys before they run off to California.  We kinda like them!


Jessa was pretty excited about her new Christmas dress from Grandma.  She ran downstairs to change into it right away.


We were surprised that Kellan liked to open some of his presents before he lost interest.


These two are pretty good cousins.  They have a lot of fun together!  We are glad they have each other.


It was a fun Christmas not because of the gifts, but because we got to spend it with family.  The time went by way too fast!

Birth Family Visit


We got to visit with Jayla's Birth Family over the holidays.  These guys are so good to us! We always have fun when we get to visit with them.  We exchanged gifts and enjoyed some good food.  We look forward to our next visit.




















Jessa's Birthday: Take Two

With Jessa's birthday being over the holidays she got to celebrate it with both Grandmas and with all of her cousins.  We took all the cousins to the gym for some Frozen games.  The kids had a lot of fun!  We played "duck duck goose" with Olaf, played "find Olaf" and then we had the kids try to hit "Olaf" A.K.A. uncle Jason.  It was a success!  Jessa LOVED it!





Afterwards we got to open presents and there was quite a crowd gathered around to see Jessa's presents.
