Happy Happy Birthday Hadley Dear

Can't believe this baby girl is ONE! We had a little party and were lucky enough that the Pintos, LaBrues and Arlaine made the journey to celebrate with us.  There was no shortage of presents or cake.
 I fully expected her to devour her cake. This sweet girl loves to eat, and likes sweets almost as much as her mother! She also isn't usually very hesitant about anything, but she wasn't really very into her cake.  She actually cried when we tried to make her eat it, but I think she was just exhausted at this point. Love those pig tails!

 And of course, twin cousins need twin tutus! And Grandma looooooves her grandkids.  Aren't these girls just the cutest (Grandma included)?

Hadley is such a sweet girl. She has no fear and tries to climb whatever she can. She loves Butters, loves eating, and really seems to enjoy meat, unlike her brother.  She smiles a lot, but is also starting to become very opinionated.  She can take a few steps, but prefers to be carried around still. I feel so blessed to be her mom and can't wait to see her little personality continue to develop.  Happy Birthday sweet Hadley! And a special shout out to Aliisa for her help with the owl cupcakes :)

Outdoor Adventures

 We have been blessed with some really nice days of weather this winter!  And of course that means it's time to enjoy the great outdoors.  Hadley went for her first ride in the wagon and little car at Grandma's.  And Brady was trying out this new "smile" for the camera. :)

We also got to run off some energy at the park. It was pretty windy that day, so not quite as warm, but it is always nice to not be cooped up inside.  Brady has always been pretty timid with things like swings and slides and, well, everything.  Hadley is so opposite.  She was laughing like crazy in the swing and wanted to do everything she could! She is one tough cookie.

 We also have had some colder weather of course.  Snow is not my favorite, but it's fun for the kids.  Brady loves to help us shovel! Unfortunately, it hasn't been great snow for snowballs.  But we threw handfuls of snow anyway!

I am so ready for the snow to melt and spring to come.  It has been a fairly mild winter for the most part, but it has still seemed so long and I am excited for more days spent outside and to be able to go for runs outside again.  Bring on the sunshine!!
