February 2011

Here are my random February no particular order. This first one is one of my favorite pictures of Sonora (can you believe she smiled for the camera - miracle) but of course I can't make it right side up. So enjoy it by tilting your head to one side. :)

This picture is on Valentine's Day. What love is captured by this picture...or is that just Sonora's model pose? I guess she's been watching too much ANTM.

Jan 2011

I realized at the end of January that I wasn't taking very many here are basically almost ALL of the pictures we took minus the really bad ones. :)
We went to the park whenever we felt we could brave the cold or if Momma was going crazy in the house with 2 loud kids.

Or if Momma was too tired to go anywhere, we took to the backyard for swing time. Steve's mom bought Levi the blue swing because she thought he didn't look right in the pink one. Well...Nora has always loved blue and always requests the blue swing when we go outside, which leaves the pink swing to Levi (the one who can't voice his own opinion yet).

Levi loves to push the chairs around the house. Not sure why but apparently he wants a wheelchair.

So this is what happens at the end of the day that no one gets to see...our lovely perfect children (ha) go gorilla crazy! :)
Sonora's first attempt at takng pictures. Not little budding photographer.
Adios to January....

Disney on Ice

Steve & I took Sonora to her first "big girl" activity...Disney on Ice. She had a great time and enjoyed being with Mommy & Daddy by herself. :) These pictures are backwards because for the life of me, I can't figure this whole blogging thing out. But you get the idea...Sonora had fun seeing the Disney characters...we had fun seeing Sonora have fun...and we were all very excited to go! She did want to go home before it was over...but whose counting that?

Levi's 1st birthday

As always, I am WAY behind on posting some pictures. So after some forceful prodding (Thanks Melissa!), I am posting at least one post until one of the kids wakes up!
These are from Levi's recent 1st birthday...February 24th. I can't believe he's already 1. Wow! We celebrated on Sunday, Feb. 20th so my brother's family could come for the day on the 3 day weekend. As luck would have it, Jordan got the flu on Levi's party day and so he & Wendy were stuck at home all day. Thankfully there was sun at his party after biting our nails that our "outside" party would have to relocate. We had a lovely party and Sonora thoroughly enjoyed our time at the park.
If you can see closely on Levi's face, he has some scratches on the right side of his face as well as over his lip. What a wonderful birthday present...not from a dog or even himself falling, but a little girl at church nursery that very morning. Apparently she wanted to squeeze (aka claw) his cheeks because he was so cute. Seriously we have no idea what happened but all we could tell him was that girls are trouble and in this case, perfectly ok to hit back. :) Needless to say, we haven't taken his 1 year old pictures yet!
We love you Levi...scratches, bruises & all!!! Happy 1st birthday!

Sonora's 2nd Birthday

Last Saturday, October 23rd was Sonora's 2nd Birthday. We decided to go to the zoo for her birthday since that's one of her favorite places in the world. We were able to celebrate with my parents and Steve's whole family at the zoo. Sonora ran around the zoo and said "hi" to every animal she met. Then we went to the park and had cupcakes and opened up her presents. I'm sure Sonora had a great day and we did too. We can't believe she is already two - time flies! What a blessing Sonora is to our lives - we love you baby doll!
