Happy Birthday, Connor!

Today, we spent the afternoon at the Estee residence to help celebrate Connor's first birthday. Mairead and Connor had a great time playing together, eating (and wearing) cake, and playing with his new toys. Thanks for having us, Jaime and Joey! And thanks for sharing, Connor!

Mairead was clapping while watching Connor play.

They love this Elmo. We think it is a little creepy because the pizza he is holding has a face, and it opens its eyes and sings. They were really great about sharing!

Nothing says happiness like a child eating her first ever cheese curl!

Ok, maybe cake is even better! Jaime made these adorable cupcakes and Mairead got to have her very own! She tore right into it and at the whole thing! Thanks, Jaime!

Ever since she was very young, Mairead has laughed at Joey. We're not sure what it is, but she always finds him pretty amusing! She loved all of the balloons, too.

We had a great afternoon at the party- thanks to Jaime and Joey for hosting, for the great food, and especially, for Mairead's BFF! There are more pictures in the slideshow to the right of this post if you'd like to see more of the kids!

Happy Anniversary!

On Wednesday, Dave and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary. Man, has it been an eventful two years! After getting married, we got pregnant, went on our honeymoon, bought a house, moved, I finished my Master's Degree, got pregnant again, and now we are expecting twins! These two years have been amazing and Dave and I are excited to see what the next year brings for us and for our growing family.

Thanks to all of you who sent cards, emails, text messages, and phone calls to send anniversary wishes. Our favorite card came from our niece, Rachael, who drew a special picture for us. As you can see, she already knows, at only 5 years old, that we are going to have our hands full! Thanks for the great card, Rachael!
In other sort of anniversary news, this is the 101st post on our blog. Thanks for keeping up with our lives-- on to the next 100!
