Birthday dinner

For my birthday my family took me out to dinner. To Chipotle, one my favorite places! The kids love it almost as much as I do. They were having a great time and putting on a show. It was nice because it wasn't super busy there so the kids could be a little louder than normal. :) Here is a little bit of what they were doing.......

A Birthday!

If you can believe it, Zoe turned 2 this past Monday! I can hardly believe it! she is now older than Toby was when we moved out to PA and talks so much and is just a little mom! It has been fun to see who she has become in these past 2 years. The one thing that never changed from day 1 is her adoration for her big brother! anything he likes, she likes. Anything he does, she wants to do. She is so excited to see him when we pick him up from school, when she wakes up from her nap, and if he is sad she is sad too! They have a very cute relationship, now don't get me wrong they totally fight - but what brother and sister who really love each other doesn't, right?! :) Here are some pictures to see how much she has grown in the past 2 years.

The day Zoe was born January 31, 2009. She weighed 9lbs 2oz. The nurses called her a "solid" little girl!

They way most people remember her. Her hair just stood up straight! We could never get it down, it was just Zoe's look! It was fun then but when I look back at pictures, it looked so crazy!
Zoe is 1!!

Zoe is 2 and such a little princess!

Fall Fest

This past Saturday was Fall Fest here at Geneva and it happened to be in our parking lot. So right our in our 'front yard'. The kids LOVED it! :) Toby was out all day running around with all the people that were here. We got a couple pictures to capture it.

Toby and Zoe. Both smiling, both looking towards the camera - can't get any better than that!!

Toby got his face painted for the first time. He loved it. He turned into Spiderman.

The wagon that Zoe loved riding in and giving her baby rides in.

And I really wanted Zoe to wear pigtails but the only way she would keep them in was to put them in Toby's hair too. So here they are! My pigtail babies!!

And Toby is....



Yes, the cake is right. There is a 4 on it! Toby is 4! Where does the time go?! We had a great time celebrating. Toby wanted Buzz Lightyear and Mario on a cake and this is what he got. Pretty nice huh?! I can't take credit for it....all I did was ask the right person to make it for me! :)
Here are a few pics from his party.

This is true. One day you will see this little boy on a cereal box!

Got to do one of his favorite things..... golf!! They kept score and even though Toby lost he was only 1 stroke behind my dad! Toby is a good golfer! :)

Water bumper boats!! This was so fun! Even Brian had a blast on them! It was so hot out that it felt awesome to get wet!

Kristie, Simone and Gavin were in the opposing boat getting Toby and Brian wet! There were lots of squeals and laughing!!

A little bit of flying!

Zoe was even trying to play some of the arcade games! I don't think she knows that you don't usually get to climb in them! :)

We had so much fun and Toby enjoyed everything we did with him! Here's to another fun year with Toby!

Tobys hair cut

Toby had been telling us that he wanted to grow his hair out. Which we were ok with because he looked pretty sweet with long hair! :) Here is what he looked like....

Well we left him for a week at my parents house. It was hot. My mom said that he wanted to get a hair cut when he was there. So she took him to get a hair cut. Goodbye sweet long blonde hair. Goodbye young Toby. Here he is with his new due and his cousin Xavier.


Still a cute little guy!

Easter Break

Over Easter break we went to binghamton NY with my parents. My dad had to go there for work and we just all tagged along. While in the pool at the hotel Toby jumped off the side and hit my mom in the eye with is chin. This is the result of that!

The kids had a hard time with all the driving! My mom did a great job in the back with them trying to keep them occupied. This is Zoe with crayons in her toes! This got her mind off the fact that she was in the car for a while!
It was my birthday too. Yes that is a 2-9 on the cake. Lets not talk about that.

Here is Easter! I LOVED their Easter outfits! They looked so cute in them!
