Getting ready for Easter!

 This year we're introducing Will to all the best things about Easter.
So far he's a pretty big fan.

Disclaimer: That chocolate bunny went in the trash. It was actually just a prop for a video I made for church. He ate an ear. McKenna ate a foot. Christian took a couple bites and then we tossed it. Sharing a chocolate bunny with your siblings is actually pretty gross.

Wordless Wednesday!

Pictures taken a few days before Will's 2nd birthday.

 Ryan and I had a fun Valentine's/10 year anniversary get-away!
 We hung out by this fire....
 In this quaint little town called Aspen, CO.
 Ryan skied.
 And sent me back some amazing pictures from the top of the Rockies!
 I preferred riding the gondola to the top of the mountain.
 I'm afraid of heights. This was huge for me.
 We did some sight seeing in Aspen.
 Ralph Lauren was one of the more affordable stores there. Prada, Dior and Gucci, just to name a few, were a little out of our league. We didn't buy a thing :)
 We missed our kids like crazy. It's the first time we've ever left them for four days.
 We were thankful we had increased our life insurance because we came out of a mountain tunnel and ended up in white-out, blizzard conditions somewhere around Vail, Co. It was scary. You just had to keep going even though you couldn't see a thing. No pictures of that....I seriously that we weren't going to make it. The next week there was a 30 car pile up in that same exact spot. Thank you Lord for protecting us!
 It was a great experience. The first time either of us had been that far west!

Birthday Girl

On the morning of McKenna's birthday she decided that we weren't allowed to sing to her (she was still embarrassed from the singing at preschool) and I wasn't allowed to take her picture. I decided it didn't really matter and I knew she would get over it, so here's a picture of her new backpack. Can you believe she's never had a backpack before?? She's been using Christian's old Thomas the Train backpack for year and now Will has sort of claimed that one, so it was time to buy a pink one.
Will was so cute giving McKenna her present.

A Barbie guitar.

New clothes for her doll and a matching set for her too.

Notice the little boy "helping" in each one of these pictures. McKenna is so sweet, she didn't mind a bit.

A Lalaloopsy party!!!
A car for her dolls to ride in!

Assembling toys is never fun.

I love the look on her face when we're singing to her. I'm glad she finally decided she was okay with us singing.

She is so much fun to celebrate!

Christian worked hard to make McKenna feel special on her birthday too.
Notice which part of the cake McKenna ended up with!
