Happy 2nd Birthday Crew!

Crew turned 2 years old on the 29th. I can't believe he is already 2. While we were in California this last week we celebrated his birthday with family and then when we got home we celebrated his birthday on the day at Chuck E Cheese. He had so much fun running around and playing all the games. It was a great day! Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with Crew!

Our 2 boys...

Here is a little update of what our boys have been up to:
Crew just started swim lessons and is a little fish in the water. He loves the water but can also be very stubborn at times during his lessons if he doesn't want to do something. He is also in the process of being potty trained. He tells us if he needs to go potty and knows that he will be rewarded if he does with a marshmallow. I think this is going to be a long couple of weeks but will be worth it in the end. Some of Crew's favorite things to say right now: I watch DVD, go to Donald's (McDonalds), YES, NO, I like that, Cody do it, mom? Cody like that, mom? (He is obsessed with his cousin Cody...seriously obsessed!), I want Apple Juice, I want Pancakes, help momma, Papa alligator, Mimi Giraffe...
Hudson just turned 3 months old on the 13th and is still our little dream baby. He is getting more and more fun each day. He loves to smile and giggle at anyone that gives him attention. He especially likes it when his daddy sings to him. We love this little boy! (I took a short little video of Hudson laughing and talking but can't figure out how to post here are some pics until I can figure this dang thing out)

Our trip to Mexico...

this was the view right from our room...beautiful!

Gorditas...Wyatt loved these on his mission so we had to find someone that made them

Last minute, our friends Clifton and Rachel invited us down to their condo in Rocky Point, Mexico. So we packed up our bags are were on the road once again...It was my first time to Rocky Point and won't be my last. It was so beautiful and we had the absolute perfect view from our room. We had a condo on the first floor so we could just walk right out to all of the pools and spas. Crew loved the beach and all the pools. We couldn't ever get him to get out. We ate lots of yummy mexican food, drank pina coladas, coke and lots of fanta. We also had to make our nightly tosted elotes run. Our family had such a fun and relaxing time. Thanks Cliff and Rachel for the invite. We had a blast with you guys!

New Years Eve 2009

We had a fun New Years Eve at The Mack's house. Thanks for everything Cliff and Rachel! We all had such a blast! At their house we played the Wii, ate lots of yummy food, watched the Office and Hot Rod and hung out by the fire in their backyard. Also, thanks to Wyatt's parents who watched the babies for us. It was a great night hanging out with friends and being able to enjoy ourselves with out to little kiddos trying to get all of our attention. Happy New Year!!!

I love this picture because it has 2 of Crew's favorite things in it...Toby Dog and Crew's best bud Cody. Crew loves following Cody around and copying everything he does.

This year we drove up to Granite Bay, California for Christmas with my side of the family. It was one of the craziest Christmas' yet with our family. We just have so many people in our family now that opening presents and trying to focus on one person at a time is nearly impossible. It is always so much fun when we all get together though. We went to San Fransisco, shopped a lot, ate a lot, cooked, played games....lots of Settlers, played pool, went hot tubing and stayed up late sitting by the fire drinking hot cocoa and just talking. We had such a great Christmas and miss everyone already! Sorry for the random order of pictures...
