Strius Turns One

Happy Birthday to our little Strius, he turns one TODAY!! We had a great little party with family and a couple friends the other night. Strius LOVES cake and being the center of attention. It has been a crazy year with two kiddos, but we have loved every minute with our little boy. He has quite a personality and everyday we are beginning to see more and more of it. He is still such a little smily boy and we love that about him.
Kyla is doing great, too. She is not sure about all this birthday attention for baby brother. She keeps telling us what she wants to do on her birthday. She is a wonderful big sister and is always helping us out. She is doing great at preschool and seems to love every minute of it.

Dustin and I are doing pretty good, we have had a CRAZY month and look forward to some breaks from the busy life that we live. We have never been more thankful for our friends, family, and faith. Happy Thanksgiving to you, we hope that you are able to give God all the glory he deserves for all that he blesses you with.

PS, don't you love the picture of dustin and I, I get so mad because he makes the worst faces when I want a picture of us. So, this is my way of trying to get him to stop by posting the one where he looks like a BIG dork!!:) I am such a sweet wife, I know!!

Oh man, are we happy that is over!! I always think ahead at these activities and think, "O, this is going to be so much fun!!" Then it comes and it is WAY fun for the kids but when it is all said and done, I don't think it was much fun for me:). Ha ha, I guess that is what parenting is all about, huh? (I am sure my parents are reading this and laughing saying, yep!!) We did have a good time, we are just so happy to say it's over.

Kyla was a Butterfly Princess (Mariposa Barbie) and Strius was our little Rockstar. We headed out around 6pm and got back somewhere between 9:30 and 10. We had a block party down the street and probably had around 100 people in the neighborhood come, that was very cool!! Although it was 91 degrees and we were all sweating, I think I would rather be freezing on Halloween, but no such thing in Phoenix.

Kyla and Daddy carved pumpkins the night before. Then mommy got sucked in and we made a castle, can you tell in the picture? We started a tradition last year, the night before halloween we eat pizza and carve pumpkins...fun fun fun!!

We will blog again soon, cause our little boy will be ONE in about 2 1/2 weeks....eeeeek!! What happened to the time?

Hope you all had a great Holiday and wish you many things to be thankful for this next month!!

Lots of LOVE!!
