Bryce's 2nd Birthday!

Wow, I was just looking back over the posts and I haven't said much in the past year. About three posts ago I was blogging about Bryce's first birthday! I guess I need to get on things! But I've got three kids under 2 years old, so I hope I'll be forgiven....
Bryce turned two this month! I can't believe it's been two years since that little (big, really) munchkin joined our lives and changed things forever! We sure love him! We celebrated his second birthday in a three day bash. Saturday was at Discovery Gateway with his cousin William (who turns two exactly five weeks after Bryce). Sunday was the official birthday and we had presents and cake. Then Monday we gave him his new tricycle (because we hadn't gotten him a helmet before Monday). But the hit of the weekend was the toy edger. They kid LOVES his lawn tools! Bryce has also been asking for "birthday cupcakes" ever since. He's allergic to eggs, so it's the first cupcakes he's ever had since Dan hunted down an egg-free cake mix (I know, a sad childhood that he'll tell his therapist all about....). So I hope you enjoy the pix, and yes, those are BYU pajamas he's wearing. Go cougs.

The blessings!

We blessed our sweet baby girls on Sunday, June 7. We have about 50 family and friends join us for the festivities! (It sounds like a lot, but my family is almost 50 alone.... so really we have three family and friends and my family.... =) They are now just about 4 months old. They are doing wonderfully. They've doubled their birth weight! Samantha rolls all over the place (even when I'm trying to change diapers), and she wiggles around until she can use Sydney's shoulder as a step to push off of. It's quite comical. Sydney talks and talks and talks and when she gets mad she yells rather than cries. They both have smiles that light up their faces. And big brother Bryce just loves them -- "Hi Nini! Hi Manta!" he loves to say when he sees them in their bouncey chairs. Then he pats them on the head or tries to shove binkis in their mouths. So sweet! Here are some pix! Sydney is on the left and Samantha is on the right in the blessing photo and vice versa in the other one.
