Catching up- Mia's first time in the snow

This year was really the first year Mia could play in the snow. She LOVES it. I was lucky enough to score an amazing coat/snowbib set at Burlington for $24. The snow bibs are navy blue- plain. So I figured Mckay will also be able to wear them. Worth it for me! 

My sister Adrianne and her hubby/kids came into town from CO for Christmas (best surprise ever!). Christmas Eve Mia got to go sledding on the man made (by my brother in law Mike with the help of Kevin) hill in my parents back yard. The good videos are on Kevin's phone so I will have to upload those later... But she had SO much fun. I am telling you- this girl is FEARLESS! She went all by herself! 

Sledding by her self! 

This was her first time in the snow at our apartment in the yard. She had a lot of fun. 

She could barley walk in those things- hence plopping down for snow angels! 

Here's to much more playing in the snow- hopefully McKay will love it just as much as she does! 

Catching Up- Play dates

Mia has made so many friends (well, i've made friends who also have kids that just happen to be Mia's friends!) We love when friends come over or when we can go to friends houses because it helps pass the long day on! :) 

Here is Mia and her friend Cooper. Cooper's mom was in Scouts with me but I got released. This was after a scouts activity- we went to get ice cream. These girls were LOVING this cart and the yummy ice cream. 

One of my close friends Malae came over to hang out with her ADORABLE little girl Zaydrie (I THINK I spelled that right..) She was just loving McKay- if anything she was most interested in him! She kept asking to hold him.

My favorite play dates are the ones with just Mia and McKay though. They love eachother so much. She has become quite the good big sister. Always feeding him for me, getting diapers, putting blankets on him, giving him his binky, helping him when he's sad.. Its really cute. I love these two.

Our most favorite little girl Maddy lives upstairs. Mia and her are about a year apart. Mia just loves Maddy. Every day when we wake up the first thing she does is ask to go see Maddy. Her name is now "Maddy Cakes!" according to Mia. I really hope they stay friends for life.

I love that Mia is getting to the stage of wanting to play with her friends.. but She has also become quite the bully. She hits ALOT and her favorite phrase is "It's mine!" Oh boy. The terrible twos. I sure hope she grows out of it soon. She goes to timeout lots. Oh well, I still love that little girl. 

Catching up- Halloween

I am months behind in blogging. Sorry for the all the catching up posts that will be coming! 

Halloween was a blast this year! We did a lot of fun things to celebrate it. 
One thing was going to Thanksgiving Point farms. We went on a carriage ride, played games, got Mia's face painted, pet the animals, all kinds of fun. She loved it! All of it except the pony ride.. she screamed on that. 

 Another thing we did was the annual Mohlman Halloween Party! Lisa and Chris (Lisa is Kevins sister) always throw a rockin Halloween party every year. Tons of food, prizes, games, and good fun. Before the party, we met at this train called Stringtown Express . It's in Lindon and its free! So much fun! Check out their website to see a youtube video of the ride. Mia loved it. This picture is just outside the line to the train. 

This was McKay's first time in the umbrella stroller. Poor kid gets the girl stroller hand me down. He was a giraffe. It was the perfect outfit for the cold. 

Along the line in the train there are tons of decorations and music and all kinds of fun stuff. 

This is McKay on Halloween morning. Thanks for the onesie Amy! 

We went trick or treating with our upstairs neighbors, Katie and Marshall and their little girl Maddy. She is 9 months old and totally cute. Her and Mia have become quite the best friends. Mia loves helping Maddy walk and it was really fun to have them come trick or treating with us. 

Here Kevin and Mia were while going house to house. 

Pictures are out of order, sorry... This is from the night of our halloween party at Lisa's. Kevin and I went as nerds! 

My handsome (nerdy) boys

I made Mia's costume. She was a 'cute' ghost for lack of a better name. 

Lisa's whole family dressed up in Napolean Dynomite outfits.. Here is Lisa with her son Jackson. Their outfits were the best! 

At the end of train. 

Mimi and Papa holding McKay- they were the pitch fork couple with the frame around their face.. haha. 

Some of the party craziness

I made cupcakes. The frosting wasn't amazing, but I think I decorated them cute! 

Kevin's oldest brother Dale- awesome costume! 

The ladies, Sharese, Jen, Lisa, Kathy, me, and Wendy

Ok, this was the best costume. Steve was the scared kid in bed and his daughter Olivia was the monster under the bed! 

We had a lot of fun and I am realizing how much more fun holidays are with kids. Thanks for the fun party Lisa and Chris!
