Is school really starting again on Monday? I swear it just barely got out. I guess that means that we had a fun summer that flew by too quick. We didn't take any really big trips this summer, but we had a great time taking Addy to the zoo, bear lake, and willow park (about fifty times). And just like it's been since she was born she has had us amazed at how smart and hilarious she is. I'm not sure what we did without her, maybe watched a little less Barney.

This was at the Zoo, Hudson is Addy's best friend. She adores him, but its hard not to love that little guy.

This is at the beach at bear lake, she thought it was great toting water around.

We spent countless days at the park, willow park was her favorite. We love the "mamies" (monkeys).
And have watched countless HOURS of Barney. Me and Ty are pretty good at most of the songs!
Addy took her dad down the slide at the fun park. I got told to stay, which is usually how it goes. She is a daddies girl!

Baby Animal Day!

Nicole had her preschool meet at the Heritage Farm in Providence a couple weeks ago so we took Addy. She had so much fun! Her favorite part was making her dad chase her around. She is pretty lucky to have such a great daddy!This little guys name was "Dexter", he got treated a little nicer than the real Dexter though, who usually gets smacked around.

Whew, the semester is finally over! I am so ready for a break from school (he he, until it starts up again in a week). I just wanted to tell everyone that has helped us out this semester (and previous semesters) a big fat thank you. There is no way that Ty and I could both go to school without the help and support that we have gotten from our family. It is so comforting knowing that Addy is going to places she loves when I have to leave her and go to class. So once again, thank you so much. Other than the end of the semester not much has been going on around here. Addy is still the same old busy/bossy/too smart for her britches/adorable little stink that she has always been. She is saying more and more words every day. But the one she knows the very best it "NO". She must hear it a lot! We had a great Easter. Addy went crazy over the candy she got If her jacket is anywhere in sight in the morning she has to put it on first thing.

This is the best picture I could get in her Easter dress. She was getting pretty sleepy, needless to say church didn't last very long.

She 100 percent feeds herself now. Its usually not very successful but she is getting there. We are not allowed to help though.

Where is this year going?

Holy cow! Can it really already be a week into March? Not much has changed around here, we're still just schoolin it like a couple of maniacs (that's where time is going). Addy is as busy as ever. I know I always say this but I really cannot believe how grown up she is getting. She amazes me every day at how smart she is. As busy as she is there is something, or someone, that she always has time for....her dad. She is a daddy's girl all the way, and I don't blame her. Tyson is wrapped right around her finger. Today is Ty's birthday so Addy and I want to wish that special daddy a very happy birthday!

Ya needless to say this little girl like to play rough, and her dad always obliges. Neither of them could stop giggling.

Happy Birthday Addy!

So I am a little bit behind! I decided to just forget posting about Christmas (we had a nice one this year and hope everyone else did to) and catch up with Addy's birthday. I can't believe my girl is one. Where did that year go? We had a big party with all of Addy's aunts and uncles and grandmas and grandpas. Needless to say it was a full house! Addy had fun tearing apart her cake! She got a ton of fun things to play with. I'm so thankful that we have such a supportive family on both sides. You guys are great!

Addy loved having a little cake all to her self! She had to tell everyone that she is one.

We gave Addy a little four wheeler. She was so excited! Watch out Dex.

I tried to get some birthday pictures of Addy, needless to say it didn't work out.
It ended with one mean birthday girl!

Addy's Christmas Dress

I put on Addy's Christmas dress last night to see how it fit and it looked so stinkin cute on her. She didn't really share my enthusiasm about it though. She walked around tryin to take it off. I can't wait to get her pictures done in it.

My "bruised apple"

The other day Nicole told Addy that she looked like a little bruised apple and I decided that was a perfect way to describe her lately. The poor little gal bonks her head about fifty times a day throughout all of her exploring. It doesn't really slow her down much though so I guess it can't hurt that bad. She split her cheek open by crashing into the wall and a couple days later she got cut on her nose from face planting it into Tyson's computer. Those cuts, along with all of the bruises and goose eggs on her head, make her look just like a little bruised apple. I can't hardly stand to watch her play anymore because I know its going to eventually lead to a crash.
