Tanner is ONE!!!

  Owen would hardly stick his finger in his cake, so we had high hopes for this boy.  Tanner exceeded all our expectations and dug right in.  Right now I'm wishing the frosting was florescent orange or something so that it didn't blend into his skin color, and you could see it better.
And here's the final product..........
Happy, Happy Birthday Tanner!  Here's to being a year older and a few pounds heavier after that feast.

PS - videos failed....I know, pretty lame.  Sorry Bree and Grandparents.  Aaaaahhhhh

Winter Wonderland?!*

Here's a picture of Owen's quilt I made for his bed.
We're not sure we signed up to live in this snow-encrusted tundra, but it is what it is and we are trying to enjoy it......I guess.  The icicles get crazy big and our muscles are too from all the snow shoveling we've been forced to do  :) 
 Tanner didn't like his cage much, it would tip over and he'd get a good face plant.  Sidney loves being in the snow and Owen is pretty much content sitting in the warm house watching a movie.  I couldn't even bribe him to come outside....and why try?  If he's much happier sitting indoors, I think we are too for now.

Party in a Box

My mom sent a Valentines Party in a box and boy was it a PARTY!
Of course there was candy in it, but there were also balloons, everything to make fun cupcakes with, necklaces, and more candy! 
Not only do they love bouncing and throwing them in the air, but their favorite activity is sumo wrestling each other with them.  Sid and Owen went at each other with them for an hour probably. (I had a video to put with this post, but I can't get it to load - boo)  I know what to buy if we're getting bored.....  :)
Here's Sidney carefully placing on the sprinkles....
And not so carefully eating them!  Yummo! Strawberry frosting to make them even sweeter.
Who can go without horsey rides at a party?
They had fun with this for a little while at least.
