Happy Birthday Dallin!

I can't believe my baby boy is 2 !!!!!!!
We just had a quiet little family party today.
We made the mistake of having the celebration right after he woke up from his nap so he has a scowl on his face for most of his pictures.

Chocolate frosting is AWESOME!

The Cake......

Present time!

Make a wish...

Dallin has been obsessed with Dinosaurs after becoming a fan of the movie "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs". So we got him a huge T-Rex that roars and walks. We were so excited to give it to him thinking he was going to love it! The funny thing was he was terrified of it for the first 3 hours after opening it. Every time it got with in 10 feet of Dallin he would scream and cry!
Luckily he got over it eventually and it has been is favorite toy ever since.
We love our little D-man soooo much!
Happy Birthday TANK!

Happy New Year!

We've been with out internet for a while now so I haven't been able to update about our Christmas vacation and new year.
We had a great time spending time together as a family these last few weeks. Joe has been crazy busy at work during the fourth quarter so we haven't seen much of him lately. But because Christmas fell on a Friday we actually got to spend the whole weekend with him!!! Yahoo!
Some highlights of our vacation were:
Playing in the snow
Going bowling
Taking the big girls to see "The Princess and the Frog"
New Year's Eve with Padilla's
And just relaxing!

Emily didn't quite make it to midnight........

Dallin barely made it to midnight...(I normally wouldn't have let him stay up but he had a late nap at 6pm :)
"Happy New Year!"

We were so blessed in 2009. A few highlights of the year were:
Building, finishing, and moving into our first home
Visits with family and friends
Celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary
Family weddings
Joe finishing his first year as a working attorney
and Julianne's Baptism

We are excited for an even better 2010!
We feel so blessed to have family and friends who bless our lives every day.
We are excited to set and achieve new goals and hopefully bless others as well.
