Oscar's Birthday...SHHH don't tell !!!

I had talked to Missy about realy wanting to get Oscar a table and chairs for his birthday. I thought I had one picked out, but after further investigation I can't make up my mind. The first one below is the one I realy wanted to get, because it's bigger and folds up. Unfortunately, it's sold out everywhere, even at the Step 2 factory. So below are my other options.

Currently not available... Option 1.

Option 2.
Transformers and wooden
Option 3.

I think I'm rooting for option #1, but I would appreciate input from anyone who has an opinion. I know Oscar would probably like all the above, but I just can't decide.. HELP!!!

Just some fun pics...

So, last night I was messing with the camera and found that it does lots of cool stuff. Goes to show how much time I realy have to just mess with stuff (I've had the camera since the family reunion). It takes pics in negative form...

I found this cool, it reminds me of night vision.

This is Chris covering his hair. I wanted to show everyone how long it is, he said I could curl it today but still hasn't let me.

Abby on the other hand, has no problems with me taking pics of her hair..

Well, maybe this time she did...

Happy Early Birthday Booga !!

Since before Christmas we have talked about getting Abby a tunnel. Well, we found a tent and tunnel finaly and it's her new favorite thing.

Here she is clapping at her brother and his friend in her tent. And this is how she looks every time she crawls through the tunnel.
This is by far the cutest pic I have ever got of her.


Yesterday we had our favorite dinner of corned beef and cabbage. Much to our delight it turned out to be a favorite for Abby also.

Here is her almost empty plate...
And a grinning Abby with corned beef on her pjs..
And of course a picture of how eagerly she was eating it up...

Guess we'll have to do it again for St. Patty's Day :)

Blue and Gold

Today was the cub scouts annual blue and gold banquet. All the boys were recognized for achievements made this year. Below are Gavins patches he earned.

And the boy looking so thrilled to have to wait his turn.
And here is our placemats that were pretty cute. (this was suppose to be the first picture, but I'm still trying to figure this blog stuff out)

He also got his ribbon for 3rd place in the Pinewood Derby. All in all it was a long day with a bunch of hyper boys, but well worth the headache.

Well, Abby officially doesn't have to wear a wig to her first birthday party. Her hair is making it's way through pretty quickly lately. It's so fun now that it's growing I can give her funny hair do's in the tub...

Suffering her first high fever...

Can you tell?

Yesterday, Abby spiked a fever of almost 103. She has no other symptoms besides the fever. This afternoon the fever fell quite a bit and her spirits have improved.
We are hoping it's just her teeth (molars coming in) but her doctor says if the fever is over 101 it's not teeth. At least she's smiling, and even for the camera.

Anxiously Waiting

Along with everyone else (especialy the Nordstrom two-some) we are excitingly awaiting the arrival of Ninja. I'm sure he will be much cuter than this baby here, but I had to post a pic. Here's praying for a speedy, healthy delivery... Best Wishes Mike and Robyn

Just for fun

Hi everyone, it's been busy busy lately and I haven't blogged. But, the last few days I'm on the computer constantly checking for ninja news. So, I thought I'd post this fun pic of Abby enjoying her bath.

Wishes for a happy Saturday and a new cousin soon...
