Welcome Home golfers!

Elle has really started to ADORE her big brother. This morning Rob and I were too tired to go get her out of her crib, but soon enough we heard robbie in there playing with her. They were giggling all morning. Then, as soon as Robbie and Daddy got back from golfing, it was all hugs and kisses from Elle! She just kept running up to Robbie trying to hug and kiss him, even on the back!

Holiday Break...entertaining themselves

Robbie knows just what to do with sawdust on the ground! He pulled down his sand toys and began to play!

He always talks about going back to Hawaii (though he may have it mixed up with Outerbanks) he just wants to be at the Beach!

Elle took baby Abbie on a stroller ride today

I had to keep telling her that it wasnt a jogging stroller!

Robbie's second bike outing.

He really concentrates on pedalling, so he forgets sometimes to steer!

He went quite a ways, and really mostly needed Rob's help on the inclines

Away they go...off to the park!

Elle is TWO!!!

Robbie was SO excited that Elle doesnt like opening presents...he took care of that for her!

They took turns feeding her doll...and playing with a tea set. What a fun big brother! I kept reminding him, "be nice, it's her birthday!"

I think she ate a pound of shrimp herself...and then started to go after Rob's steak!

I think she was pointing to herself and saying "Elle" thought it sounds way different than that!

On the 12th day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me
a whole day of kids playing with things they should!

(maybe not in the way they are supposed to be played with...Elle's vanity became a chocolate sorter)

Robbie's golf clubs are "JUST MY SIZE!"

We tried to tell her this is for her baby, but she thinks it is more fun for both!

We didnt even have to wait for snow to melt to try this out!

A morning walk at Sea World

On the 6th day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me:
Robbie's funny comments:
"will you be dead when the baby comes out...cause wont you break?"
"Can I watch another movie because my brain didnt fall out...I dont see it on the floor!"
"Mom, sometimes when you arent looking, I dont wash my hands."
and a Christmas Carolling hayride around the city!


Elle's Second Birthday Party

Of course Elle had a fever all day. She slept most the day, but woke up enough for the party.

I think the only thing she ate all day was this cupcake she is grabbing! And maybe part of a doughnut!

This little girl was pretty darn out-of-it! She was not her normal crazy excited self!

She let Rob open her presents for her! She was content just chillin! I hope at least one day she'll look back and enjoy the pictures!!!

The party details are on my life frosting page.

I think my eyes have dried enough to hold the camera...

What does this look like to you? Maybe 10-20 minutes of playing without adult supervision with her brother and some scissors?

I have been sobbing uncontrollably all evening.

I told Robbie he may not have Christmas afterall.

Elle doesnt even know that she looks like a little boy orphan. I dont know how Im going to fix this one...buzzes just dont look good on little girls.
