Love this blogging app. Expect a lot more updates.

Caitlyn update

Caitlyn recently came home with her report card for the first quarter. She received all A's. We are so proud of her. We insituted a new reward system: $1 per A, so she earned $10. Chad always earned money for A's, and I never did. What does your family do?

Alison today

Sometimes its just great to catch their little mannerisms and what they are into for the day. Yesterday Alison found Nathans Bob the Builder bucket and she fell in love with this belt. Today she brought it to me and insisted on having it on. I was happy to oblige. She looks so cute wearing that belt around over her dress. She has also been bringing me tools to put in the belt. At least she'll be ready in case of a mechanical emergency!

We Do Lines

 Chad became part owner in the Arizona franchise of We Do Lines - so if you have a parking lot that needs repainting - let him know!

Its pretty appropriate that this is our traditional birthday picture for Alison. She is so feisty! Usually we take the picture by waking them up, but she got up pretty early today - and since she started sleeping in her toddler bed a couple of nights ago, she got into our room before I got into hers. Did I mention it was early? - about 5:40am (pretty close to the actual time she was born!) The sun wasnt quite up so the flash was really making her mad.

After she was awake for a little bit we got a better picture

Last night we had a little party for Alison (and Aaron coming into town) over at Grandma and Grandpa Harmons.

Nathan NEVER misses out on a birthday cake and blowing out the candles. As always - after the birthday person blows out the candles they have to be relit for Nathan to take a turn.

Alison thoroughly enjoyed her birthday cake. Good thing because she's getting more tonight.

some of the crowd. Its always fun when Abby is around.

Chad and Aaron

Alison got a shopping cart full of goodies (fake food) and a couple of new dolls to add to her "babies" collection. She loves babies.

More festivities tonight!

Totally Alison

This is what happens when I try to take cute pictures of Alison. I'm so glad that I captured this timelapse.

This is for Melissa:
