Heaven on Earth

There is this place that has grass and sand (or bark chips) and lots of fun toys for little kids. Some may call it a park, well I think for my child that it is her heaven because she LOVED it.

I have been somewhat hesitant about taking her because I wasn't sure if she was old enough to actually play. But one day we were out walking and decided to stop and we were there for over an hour. I think next summer we will live at that place.

We swung until her nose turned red and her hands were freezing.

Then we went down the slide- over and over and over again. The craziest part is when I sit her at the top of the slide she pushes herself off and goes down all by herself and then wants to crawl back up to go down again.

Such a fun day! Too bad in about a week or two it is going to be much too cold for outside play :(

Funny story

We celebrated Mitch's birthday last week and I know I still have to post Addy's bday pics but they are on my mom's camera so you shall just have to wait. But for Mitch's birthday I made him this hershey's chocolate cake which took two attempts because the first time when I went to take the cake out of the pan half fell out and half stayed in. I was very upset because I already hate to bake and I knew I was going to have to do it all again. Anyways so this is the delicious cake below with all its amazing layers.


THIS IS......

the next morning

I was working on her halloween costume in the dining room and she was in the kitchen where I thought she was just playing in the tuperware drawer. She was being so good and making such happy sounds so I didn't worry about her. A little while later I go to check on her and I find her covered in chocolate, just look at those hands! She had gotten in the garbage can and found a bowl that had some left over frosting and went to town. No wonder she was making such happy sounds.

Here are just a few more with the birthday balloons.

Getting so BIG!!!

I just had to post these pictures because they show how my baby is no long a little baby. So sad :( but she is still as cute as ever.

Play Date

Addisyn now has a new friend named Addyson! Actually they are too little to be friendly but they usually end up playing together a couple times a week because we alternate babysitting which we love because it is FREE!!! A couple of weeks ago I got the camera out and documented how well one year olds "play" together and this is how it went.

We start off with Addy running/crawling away with Addyson chasing and laughing behind.

Then they find the toys! Now the real fun begins :)

So far, so good.

Then Addy gets mad and pushes Addyson out of the way.

Mom takes over and does a little distracting (see the little lego man at the time it was her favorite- just call me smart!) Now we are back to being happy.

Oh- the chasing starts up again but this time Addy is chasing Addyson (I know the names get really confusing-just imagine how they feel).

Man down.

Trying to get back up.

Run into the couch to say hi to mom.

And suprisingly in this case we end with two happy kids :)
