Busy Start to 2011!

DSC01874 I’m disappointed that I haven’t done well on my mission to update more, but we’ve been busy! I was thinking that life would slow down a little after the holidays, but this past month seemed to fly by.  We rang in the new year at the cabin with the Kecks, and although the weather didn’t make it easy to get there, it was sure beautiful with all the fresh snow. Annie and Lauren enjoyed their time together as usual and had fun playing outside. Brayden entertained everyone without causing too much trouble since he was still immobile (not anymore though!). And the adults kept busy with Just Dance for the Wii and snowmobiling. Even Lauren got to ride the snowmobile and liked it so much that she didn’t want to get off!

We also recently took a trip up north to visit our friends, the Rupps. It was great to spend time with old friends and the kids got along great. Brayden was loving the pool filled with plastic balls- he was flapping his arms and squealing, he was so excited. And Lauren hit it off with Mollie and even slept in her room with her (after several trips up to the room to settle them down).

I co-hosted a baby shower this month for my good friend Manda- when we planned the shower, we hadn’t expected the baby to be here but Will had other plans! He arrived 9 weeks early on Christmas Day and thankfully has mastered many of the milestones needed for him to go home. We hope that day comes very soon!

And my baby is now on the move- he’s crawling all over the place and loves to follow me around. Brayden loves his new freedom but Lauren isn’t so sure about it since it’s now easier for him to get into her toys. No more Polly Pockets left on the floor! Hard to believe that Brayden will be a year old in just two short months.

    Can't wait to see all of you next weekend , , , Brayden and Lauren will keep us all entertained, I'm sure! Love from Grandma Mary
