Mommy - we don't "yike" orange!

So, the other night Olivia went and got the newspaper and told me she was needing to read it. She went to her playroom, and had the paper all out of the package. She came running in to me with the sports section. She pointed to this picture, and this was our conversation that followed:

Olivia: Mommy I can't read this part

Me: I know baby, reading is hard, but we will learn.

Olivia: No Mommy, I can't read it because we don't "yike" orange.( as she is pointing to the O on the baseball hat! )

At least I am starting them young!!

Olivia is 4

I don't know where the last four years have gone, but our little Olivia turned 4 Saturday! It is hard to fathom she is this old. Each day she masters something new, or says something so funny, we crack up! She has brought us more joy in the last four years than we could ever have imagined experiencing. She has been an amazing little girl to raise to this point, and we look forward to getting to know her better and better!

Her birthday party was themed " Prehistoric Luau", she loves dinosaurs and wanted palm trees! We were able to decorate it, and make it awesome for her!! She had family come in from out of town, and 6 of her "old" cousins were able to stay and spend the entire day with her! She had a fairy tale day for her! After the official party, the older cousins joined us as we went to the creek right by our house! They searched for crawdads, and just had an overall great day! I will attach pictures from her special day!

April -- 2009 -- Better late than never!

So, I totally stunk at blogging for the entire month of April! What was I thinking??
Anyway, I will attach a few pictures from Easter, and just some random shots of the kids! We had a great month of April. Hudson had his tube surgery, and has felt so much better. He is starting to say lots of new words, and really attempting to communicate with us! At the end of April, I turned 30, so my entire family went to Branson to celebrate! I have also attached pictures from that trip!
