Grizzlies Game

January 18th we went to the Grizzlies Hockey Game with our friends Luke and Mindy. It was a fun night out with them. I haven't been to one of these games in such a long time!!
Thanks for the invite you guys.
Blakelee was such a sweet little girl until the end and she just wanted to be home in bed because it was way past her bed time. 
We left before the game ended but the Grizzlies were winning!! :)

New Years Eve

On New Years Griff and I invited our friends Steve and Lara over for some games and dinner. When they arrived we called Texas Road House to get our name on their 1 hour and 45 min wait list. So when we got to the restaurant we only had to wait 5 minutes!! Perfect :).
We had such a yummy dinner, We love Texas Road House!!!
We then went back to our house, bathed and fed Blakelee so she would go to sleep while we played games!! Well putting her down was not working this night... dang Fireworks!!!! People were lighting them off from 10 o'clock on. She could not fall asleep because they were scarring her. So during our game I kept running up there trying to comfort her. She usually sleeps SOOO good so it was very unusual for her to have a hard time falling asleep!!
We played Dirty Minds!! It is actually a very cleaver game. Haha!!!
Steve and Lara provided some yummy treats and the game! Thanks guys :)
Once we had a winner... Lara!!! She kicked our butts, we turned on the ball drop and of course had our midnight kiss!!! Love this man so much it is so fun that he has been my only New Years kiss ever!!! :) 
Still not sleeping at Midnight!!!! 
She was MAD!!! I had to give her a few more ounces and rock her sleep so finally fell asleep at 12:30.
Hope everyone had a great New Years. We sure did!! 
Happy 2013 it will be a fun year with a little one growing right before our eyes.

Beau's 1st Birthday

Happy Birthday Little Beau Man.
I can not believe that you are 1 years old already. It seems like just yesterday we heard that you were on your way to meet all of us. 9 weeks early and just a sweet little boy. We love you so much and think you are just precious!!
December 26th was his birthday but we all celebrated on January 1st!! It was a great night with everyone.
I am so glad that we were able to celebrate Beau's first birthday with him and his family. We met at Rock Creek Pizza, ordered our dinner, hung out with all the family, watched Beau open his gifts, and of course...
...Enjoy his cake that his Aunt Whitney (Megan's Sister) made him!! She did such a good job.
At first he was not sure what he was supposed to do but once he figured it out, he LOVED it :).
It was so cute to watch him enjoy his first Birthday Cake!!!
Mmm Delicious!!
While he was having his cake we all enjoyed some of Megan's famous Sugar Cookies!! They are the best ever!!
Cousins!!! Blakelee wishes you a happy birthday!
Love you Beau!! Glad you had a great 1st Birthday!!
