Birthday Girl

Happy Birthday to me! It's been more like a birthday week....Bob's Parfaits and cupcakes the other night with my family and friends. Sledding, shopping and a movie today! Next week, a shopping spree with my MIL! I love birthdays even if it does mean I am older.

My Samantha Kate is 9 months old! Time sure does fly when you're having a down right blast! She crawls all over the place and stands up to everything. Today I caught her playing the piano. It was so funny to see such a little person with her little hand plunking some keys! She laughs and giggles when you play with her. She gives kisses and hugs when you ask. She loves Alex but also knows she can cry to get her big sis in trouble. Chris and I are on to her! She has two teeth and more on the way (hello sleepless nights!!!!!) She really is such a joy and a sweet angel baby.

Hello 2009

Last night we rang in the new year with some good friends. We had a grand time. Really. Like the belly hurting laughter kind.

The kids. Doing what kids do. Acting silly and cute at the same time!

Tripoly anyone? My lame poker face. Actually, I don't have one. I try.

Lisa and Tyler showing their poker faces. Better.

Ann-Marie trying to touch her nose with her toe. We stayed up playing other dumb human tricks and laughing our guts out. We love spending time with good friends, thanks McDonald's and Benson's for ringing in the new year with us!
