Happy Birthday Canon!

I know you hear this from a lot of parents about their kids, but we can't believe our little Canon is already two! He is such a sweet little and we just love his easy going, lovable personality. Canon loves trains and making the choo choo sound so we thought a Thomas cake would be great for his special day. Thank you google for having lots of ideas for cakes, because I am not creative.

Canon knew exactly what to do with the presents since he had a lot of practice during Christmas. He dove right in and was excited about everyone!
We love you Canon!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Everson was very ready to open presents right when he woke up but Canon didn't want anything to do with it. It took him watching Everson open a couple before a understood what to do. We had a great Christmas!

Todd's parents came over later in the morning to join us for some present opening. Everson was more then happy to help them open their gifts, especially the chocolates he and Canon got for Deda.

The boys get to open one present on Christmas Eve! We decided to let them open the presents they got each other. I think the pictures explain it all. You could say Everson was just a little bit excited to get his red Darth Vader light saber he has been asking for forever. Canon of course was also excited because he got the blue one (which is the only color he can say)!

We put the boys to bed and I decided to play with my camera a little bit. Here is our tree the night before Christmas, a couple red ornaments on it and the cute tree ornaments with the boys faces in them that their nursery leaders made for them.

Our Friends in town!

We had so much fun visiting and eating lunch with Brian and Marissa while they were in town. They got the boys two new books for Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Merry Christmas Curious George. The boys love books and were excited for new ones. And we are also very grateful for the cute ornament they got us for our barren tree.
We love you two!

Gift Exchange Party

Another Cooper/Padbury/Atack family gift exchange party! The food was yummy and everyone seemed to have a great time. Again, we missed Bill, Kendra, Will and Kayla and hopefully one of these years we will all be able to get together. Thank you everyone for such a fun night. I know my boys had a blast and so did Todd and I.

Ladies: Mishelle, Jeanette, Julie, Tracy and Me (we missed you Kendra)
Men: Todd, Greg, Burk, Chuck, and Craig (we missed you Bill)
Enjoying the food and good conversations!
Present opening!
Everyone got up to show what they got on the Just Dance 2 for the Wii. Good laughs!
The whole crew at the party!
We love you all!

Big Rolls

Everson and Canon thought the rolls that I made in a muffin pan that turned out extra big were the coolest things. Of course, I had to get a picture of them being so happy with their rolls!
