Well, we are all healthy and I am hoping that it stays this way for a while. We had a nice weekend. Thursday night, Sam had his 2nd grade musical program. He looked so handsome in his suit and we were really proud of him. Friday night, Scott and I enjoyed a date night with a wonderful sushi dinner. It is always so nice to get out of the house together without kiddos in tow. Thanks to Kent and Vic for watching the kids at our house so that Mason could go to sleep in his own bed. Saturday Alice had a soccer game and then we headed out for pizza and a MSU football game. Today, while Scott worked I took the kids to church, taught an awesome Sunday school class, went to Sam’s Club for a pan of lasagna, ate lunch and cleaned up the house. Tonight, we had a party to celebrate Sam’s birthday. The actual day is tomorrow but because we are going to have such a crazy Monday we decided to celebrate a day early. Tomorrow Sam will celebrate with his class and then we will make his favorites for dinner. I hope you all had a great weekend. It is snowing here and we are suppose to get 3 inches tonight. The kids are praying for a snow day. I am praying for a school day with everyone back in their designated classes for once in a couple weeks.
Sam and my nephew Zach playing. When Aunt Stacie asked Sam what he wanted for his birthday he replied with “a remote control Tarantula”. Well….she found one! Aunt Stacie, you are the best!
It seems that we will be having a visit from the tooth fairy very soon. Hopefully she remembers this time.
Our sweet boy is definitely all boy.
He loves his choo-choos.
Bus and car are two of his favorite words.
Momma is his all time favorite word and he chants it all day long.
Especially in the car.
He is walking all over the place.
His favorite sign is down.
M&M’s are his favorite treat.
Every time we go to the store he chants num-nums.
Mason is embracing the the age of 2.
He keeps me on my toes.
He never stops moving.
Except when he sleeps.
Which is rare.
He gives tons of kisses and hugs.
He loves his momma.
And I love him.
This morning we had our family pictures taken. Always a memorable experience. Normally we save this fun family bonding experience for church directories or impromptu holiday gatherings. I decided that we needed a real family portrait with Mason. As you might remember we had our family pictures taken last November for the church directory. Every time I walk past that picture hanging in our foyer, I feel bad. It really isn’t a family picture without the little guy. So today we headed to Divide to have the official Wescott family portraits taken, all six of us. Our friend, neighbor and photographer took the photos on her family property in Divide. 160 acres of gorgeous country. She took about a billion pictures so here’s to hoping that one turned out. The wiggle factor is always in effect when it comes to our kids. Mason wasn’t super happy about smiling or sitting still. Sam wasn’t thrilled about smiling or sitting still. Alice enjoyed screaming cheese or candy or any other word that we used to try and get Sam and Mason to smile. And Paige, well, bless her heart, she sat, smiled and wiggled only a teensy bit. I did offer a yummy treat for those who could sit still and smile nicely and it seemed to work for a couple shots. After the pictures we headed down the mountain to Woodland Park, had lunch, bought the yummy bribes and then headed to the park for a little energy release. Here are some cute shots that I took at the park. These kids always redeem themselves at the perfect times. Here’s to more family fun. Well, they did look cute after all.
