Liv's 3rd birthday part 2!

Somehow, we missed a bunch of photo ops for this part of Liv's bday! I see no pictures of the cake whatsoever...hoping they are on the other camera! Anyhow, here are some pictures of her opening the goodies from Grandma and Grandpa Gregory plus a few extras mommy and daddy have picked up from friends (dress up clothes).

Check out the boy's super-cape from grandma kathy. Not an apron as I originally thought:)

Also, by popular demand (hi Auntie!) Olivia had a chocolate bean cake for birthday part one, and a chocolate zucchini cake for bday part 2 with frozen banana icecream! And I am a terrible, uncreative mom and didn't end up frosting either of them. They don't have store bought here and I didn't think ahead to buy stuff to make it homemade. The 10 minute car trips to pick up stuff to make frosting just don't happen here (no car of course:). But she LOVED the candles, being sung to, and blowing them out. She was GIDDY:) Very cute.

Happy 3rdBirthday Liv, part 1

Happy third birthday Liv!  This was birthday part one, with Grandpa and Grandma Crosby!  She was SO excited about the candles...I seriously think that was the best part for her!  We love our little blue eyed, fair-skinned, wavy haired, extremely opinionated and smart little girl!

Somebody is starting to walk....

Louis watching daddy vaccum (and frustrated that he can't get to it)

Scenes from the past week

Louis trying to lick the windows clean and press his entire face up on the pane at the same moment.  This is why my windows never ever look clean.  
Marianna wanted me to take a picture of her colored pencil design.  The way cooler one was before that...she wrote "HAT" with my help on how to spell it out of colored pencils.  Smart girl.
 A couple of precious and priceless pictures of grandpa George reading to his granddaughters.  Don't they look so big in these pics?

Three turkeys having fun

The new blogger set up has me thrown for a loop, hence my lack of coherent or many posts at all. But! I can still get pictures up:) Its been a busy whirlwind here lately...with grandma and grandpa Crosby we have 7 people in less than 700 square feet! Its been super fun to have company though, can't complain at all. Very glad we get to keep them for almost 2 weeks! Here are some pics from the past week or two, to try and catch up!

Happy Birthday Louis!

Our handsome little boy turned one today! He has been a sweet blessing to us...he is always ready with a smile. Louis is very "busy" like our other two and adventurous. Just today he figured out how to climb up one of sister's toy chairs and climb onto the third rung of our deck. Yikes! I think we'll always be on our toes with this boy. He is still quite a mama's boy, but I have a feeling that my days of having a "baby" are numbered. We love you little man!
