Daniels 3rd Birthday!!!!!!

Daniels birthday started out interesting. In the morning we went to help out at an estate sale till noon. After that we came back had lunch and then went to the pool. Daniel had a blast he even swam a little all by himself. Then we came back to the house and Grandma Brenda and Grandpa John's present had arrived for him, so we called them and they said he could open it right then. He has had a blast playing pilot. Afterwards we went out for Chicken nuggets and french fries for his birthday dinner.

The next day was his birthday party. It was held at one of the local parks. That morning Jeff and Daniel went to work in our garden till it was time to go and get the Lightning McQueen ice cream cake. While they were doing this I was busy at home making guacamole and fruit salad, and frosting cupcakes. Below is a picture of Samantha, Glen and their mom.

Jessica, Gav and Jason, unfortunately we didn't get a picture of Tea; Jessica's daughter she must have been hiding from Jeff who was taking the pictures.

The Cake!!!!!!

There was a storm start to move in and the wind was strong enough that we couldn't keep the candles lit, so Daniel didn't get to blow them out, although Sunday night our power went out and we lit some candles then and sung Happy Birthday to him again and he got to blow the candles out when the power came back on.

While Daniel was opening his presents we where cleaning up because the storm was moving in fast. Daniel only got to open half of his presents before it started to rain. He opened the other half when we got back to the house.

Thank you to all who made Daniels third birthday great. We appreciate all of your thoughtfulness and kindness.

Playing Together

One day we decided to pull the blocks out and Daniel and Kaylie had a fun time playing with each other. Daniel worked on building a castle and Kaylie worked on putting as many blocks into her moth as possible. Daniel was very proud of the castle he built and couldn't wait to nock it over so he could build another one.

Kaylie Trying to Crawl

So a couple weeks ago during family home evening Kaylie surprised us all by trying to crawl. We paused FHE and encourage her to reach for one of Daniel's toys. Below is the picture by picture play of her trying to crawl, and one of the many videos we took of her trying to do it again.

New Things

This month Kaylie has decided to try and learn how to crawl and walk at the same time. She tries to pull her self of onto her feet using anything she can reach. She also loves to play patty cake and loves to stand more than sit now. She seems to be changing ever day or that is what Jeff thinks at least. She also loves any of Daniel's toys. She thinks she should get to play with all of them, and dosen't understand that some are dangerous for her.
