Zach on Christmas day
Christmas Day evening
Day of Hadley's 3 birthday
Halloween and her party
Man I am SOOO behind on the blog thing lately. I will try to summarize by month since my last post.
October-Hadley was a princess for Halloween (surprise, surprise) and Zach was a one eyed blue monster. We went trick-or-treating in neighborhood with neighbors ad her best friend Shea. They had a blast.Beach Halloween weekend
November- We had Hadley's 3rd birthday party at a park in Vienna. Sam, Connor, Ryan, Patrick, Charlie and Larry all came to celebrate with her. The kids had a great time. The big hit was her "taco" AKA pinata. She kept wanted to hit her taco....I think we now know the proper name. Pink Eye struck the house. NOTfun.
We hosted THanksgiving at our house in Annapolis. Had all of the grandparents up. We had a great time. Price and Joe fried a turkey again and it was delicious!
December-Had our first Christmas at our house. Mimi, Pop Pop and Joe all were there for Chistmas Eve. Hadley was still terrified of Santa but wanted the presents so Santa had to leave them all on the roof. She was NOT ok with him coming inside.
January-Headed to beach for New YEars Eve. Just hung low with Mom and Dad. We all did a Hair of the Dog 5K the morning of New Years Day. Was a gorgeous day and nice run/walk in Bethany beach.
Headed to FL for friends wedding the weekend of Martin Luther Kin. Stomach bug got kids that week. I thought I was in the clear but was affected me ONCE we got to FL. I did manage to make it to a nice lunch with Price in Naples where Warren Buffett was sitting at the bar with us. It all went downhill after that for me and I spent the rest of the day/night in bed. Got myself together after fever broke and did make it to the wedding on Sunday.
February-Already mid February . Zachary is now pulling up, crusing, crawling and all over the place. He also cut is top left tooth this week so looks like he will have 3 for a while. Not sure if the other is close behind. Hadley's all came at the same time so we will see. Our wonderful Megan (nanny of almost 2 years) left us. She is engaged now and moved in iwth her fiance an hour and a half away so the new hunt has been brutal to find someone else.
It has been a CRAZY mild winter. Was hoping to get SOME snow cuz the kids would love it and so does Kali. INstead, we spent New years eve sitting on the beach and all of our trips to the beach Hadley has been able to ride her bike on the boardwalk, etc. I must say, in a way its kinda nice. It is crazy all the flowers that are popping up. Makes me excited for our beds since my new yard is a work in progress. I see some things peeking out and can't remember what I put in so Hadley and I check on our bulbs periodically.
All in all, besides feeling like we have been sick since before THanksgiving, life is going great. Hadley is really turning into a great big sister and helper. Zachary is a sweetie...I will try to be better about posting.
