Introducing: Sayler Elizabeth Nobles!

Beautiful baby Sayler made her entrance into the world on Easter Sunday, 4-8-12. She weighed 6 lbs, 14 oz. and was 19 inches long. We were able to be at the hospital while her birthmom was in labor, and got to hold her just after she was born. It was an amazing day. We are so thrilled to welcome little Say-Say in to our family. ( I will be blogging more of the story soon!)

Avery's 1st ski lesson

Avery and Daddy, along with friends Mark, and his daughter
Katelyn got to go skiing last week! It was Avery and Katelyn's first time, and they got to take a lesson, and then show off their new skills! They all had a BLAST!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Looks like the leprechauns came and invaded our house!

Pirates of Penzance

Avery was in her first play, and had such a fun time! They practiced several hours each week for about 2 months. It was so great to see her perform! She did a fabulous job as a daughter. The pictures were taken after the play, one of them with her sweet friend Max, who was the lead in the play.

that's my boy!

Yep, that's our little man...riding his rocking moose, shirtless + beads...nice...

1st grade patriotic program

The 1st grade classes put on a beautiful patriot program a couple weeks ago. They really did an amazing job. A few days before the program, Avery was telling me about it, and said, "Mom, when we sing America the Beautiful, it makes me cry, cause I think about all the soldiers, and especially Great Grandpa." Is that the sweetest thing you've ever heard?? I love that little girl :)

getting some energy out!

Avery had a couple days off of school, thanks to President's Day, so a friend and I took the kids to "Get Air", an indoor trampoline park. What a great way to get some energy out on a cold winter day. They had tons of fun!

lovin' us some family time

We were able to go to a fun Grizzlies Ice Hockey game last week, and even better, were able to take some friends with us! The kids especially had a blast chasing the mascot half way around the stadium to get a picture. ...and hiding in the cupboards of the suite we were in! I love being able to do fun stuff like this with the kids~ what great memories!

"Dads and Donuts"

Johnny and Avery got to have a special morning in her class, where her teacher hosted "Dads and donuts"...how cute is that?! They had donuts (which Avery doesn't like, so she brought fishies!), played games, and the kids sang songs for the Dads. It was a sweet time for the both of them. (Of course Wyatt had to get in on the picture before they left in the morn ~too cute!) Next is "Moms and muffins"~ love it!

Happy 2nd Birthday little man!

Wow, I can't believe our little man is 2!! We had so much fun in the weeks before his birthday, preparing him for his big day~ we would say, "it's almost your Happy Birthday!" and he would stop whatever he was doing, to clap! We had a fun little get-together with my family and our neighbors.

Wyatt is such a fun little boy...keeps me on my toes...such a busy boy!! He can always make us laugh, has an incredible memory, has amazing balance on his little feet, loves to hide things (remotes, batteries, toys, socks...), loves to stack things, loves to help me in the kitchen, with laundry and making beds. He has a smile that lights up the day, can't get enough of it. He makes friends wherever we go, for example, the lady that works in the bakery at Target, knows him by name and is so excited to see his bright face when we come in. (Wyatt always flashes her his killer smile). Wyatt loves his big sis, he's such a little follower...love to watch those two play. We love our little man!

finally, a little bit of SNOW!

The kids were thrilled to play in the snow--finally! We haven't had much snow this season...bummer! ...I love the way Wyatt is looking at Avery in the 2nd pic...like, "what now sis?!" :)
