Kason's 2nd birthday

Kason had his 2nd birthday 3 day's after Christmas and this year he was so much fun!  He will still in the mode of opening presents and he was being pretty cute.  We had a Mickey birthday party complete with Mickey decorations, a Mickey cake and a Mickey pinata.  We had family over for presents and cake and ice cream and he was so funny when we opened his presents.  He was very particular to wrapping paper.  He had to open all his Buzz and Woody wrapping paper first and he did not want to open the purple wrapping from my parents.  It was so funny!  And after every present he unwrapped he had to take it to Cam's girlfriend Savannah and show it to her and then he would take it to Weston's mom to put in a pile.  It was pretty cute.  I still can't believe he's getting so big!  But he is so much fun to have around and we all love his happy personality.  Love you and Happy Birthday Kason!!!  

 These were some of his decorations.  You can't see them very well but in front of the TV were his Mickey Mouses and then there was a really cute Mickey and Friends Happy Birthday sign.

 His Mickey Mouse cake.  I think he turned out cute!

 I think these were the cutest cupcakes ever and they were so easy to put together!

His Mickey pinata!

 Opening a present!

Thanks to everyone who came and helped celebrate his birthday! He definitely got spoiled and our house now looks like a toy store! 

Kason's 2 year stats

Kason turned two on Wednesday and the next day we went to the doctor for his 2 year check up.  Here are his stats.

Height - 34.78 in - just under 50%
Weight - 27.78 lbs - 50%
Head - 19.5 in - 50%

He is growing up so fast I can hardly believe it.  Just a couple month's ago he was still my little baby and all of sudden he is such a toddler.  He loves running around and playing with Makenna.  He loves Thomas the train and Mickey Mouse.  He is really talking up a storm and is so funny about things.  He plays roll call every day asking where people are and what are they doing.  He loves anybody but mom.  If Weston is home I can't do anything for him it has to be his dad.  Which is fine by me I don't have to change those messy diapers!  And if we go to Grandma's house he has to have them do everything for him too!  He carries a step stool everywhere he goes so he can climb up and reach things.  Toys, food in the pantry, light switches, etc.  He is really such a fun boy.  His new thing is trying to jump off the ground.  He hasn't mastered it yet but I'm sure he will soon.  His favorite food right now is bagels and crack. (crackers)  And he loves his guck.  (cup with either milk or juice.)  Kason is so much fun right now and we sure do love him!

Christmas 2011

 Christmas this year was as busy as it is every year.  Sometimes I wish that we could slow the day down and enjoy everything but it just seems to fly by!  Oh well, maybe next year.  Well to start off we had church at 9 am and I just didn't think we could do everything and get ready before hand so I had this plan of hiding the kids under blankets and walking them down the stairs and out the door so they couldn't see anything.  My parents and sisters were going to come to church with us and then back to our house for orange rolls, fruit and of course presents!  I was so excited for the kids because they are at such a fun age and I couldn't wait to see their faces when they saw what Santa brought them.  Well my little 4 year old was apparently even more excited than me and the first thing she did Christmas morning was sneak down stairs to see if Santa had eaten her cookies.  Well he had and she was so excited to come and tell us that he had eaten the cookies and drank all the milk!  I just wanted to cry.  I didn't get to see her face all excited to see if Santa had been there.  But after we talked and after we finally made it back home from church Weston convinced me that he didn't think she saw everything.  She just saw the TV tray with the missing cookies and not all the presents.  Both kids were so excited for all their new toys and had a great morning.  Makenna got a Barbie house and a pink microphone, and Kason got his Choo-Choo.  He was so excited for it and has not stopped playing with it yet!  (Well except for every time we pull him away to run to someones house or to go to sleep.)

So after presents and a little nap we went to Weston's parents house where we all got spoiled.  Makenna got her Strawberry Shortcake house and Kason got his Buzz Lightyear.  Then we were off to my parents where we got spoiled again with more presents, and had Kason's birthday dinner.  It was such a great day and I just wish it would have lasted longer so we could have enjoyed everything.  Thanks to everyone who made it such a great day and I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Dance Recital

Makenna had her Christmas Dance Recital last night and she did such a great job!  They danced to I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause and it was adorable!  She knew the dance so well and did such a great job!  We love watching her dance!

Letters To Santa

For Family Home Evening last week we let the kids write their letters to Santa and then we went to Thanksgiving Point and saw all the lights.  It was a really fun night and the kids really enjoyed it.  Kason isn't old enough to write yet so I thought it would be fun to pick out pictures from all the catalogues and we would cut and glue them to a letter for Santa.  Kason's attention lasted about 3 minutes and then he was done.  Makenna on the other hand could have gone all night long!  Everything she looked at she had to cut out and ask Santa for.  So I'm sure Santa can find something on her list that will make her happy on Christmas morning.  Now we just all have to wait which is proving hard for some of us!  We just can't wait!  Well here are a couple pics of the kids "writing" there letters to Santa.

Decorating the Christmas Tree

I love bringing out all my Christmas decorations.  It's probably the only holiday that I really decorate the house for.  I just love putting everything up and the kids this year had a lot of fun helping.  Makenna was so helpful with everything and Kason was old enough to help decorate the tree this year.  They both had so much fun.  I actually just sat down on the couch and watched them decorate the tree once Weston got it up.  It was such a nice night.  And of course it wouldn't be a blog post with out pictures, so here they are!
