We finally put together our cupcakes. Baking cupcakes is one of Hannah's favorite things to do with me. :) I love it too. She is so sweet in the kitchen. I am also happy to have a cute post about Hannah finally. They are so easy to make and I got the idea from a friend at church. Check out the's pretty self explanatory. We are leaving one for Santa tonight!

Can you say a little snow is a good thing?

We can't go anywhere unless we walk and we don't have snow shoes. :(

There is a nice thick layer of black ice under everything.

We had a snow storm Wednesday night to Thursday night and ended up with 23" in 24 hours. We are still getting a little snow here and there so shoveling is a must to keep on top of things. I would of had a lovely post on Hannah's Christmas program at school but it got canceled. We love Hannah too, but this blog does seem to be all about Maizer. Sigh - I'll have to post something on her soon to even it out. :) Here are a few pics of Josh shoveling out the cars.

Maizer turns 2!!

Homemade mac and cheese which Maizer didn't want anyway so he had chicken nuggets. I can never guess what he will eat and like. It changes too much. :)

Maizer loves Elmo. He calls him "Melmo".

Maizer turned two last Monday the 15th. He is a toddler now. sniff,sniff I know I shouldn't feel sad but my baby isn't really a baby anymore. Good thing I have another on the way! :) Hannah was hilarious. She wanted to be a "big helper" and help Maizer open all his presents. She was so sweet about it. I am glad she will get to open her own presents for Christmas because I felt kinda bad that she didn't have anything of her own to open. But she quickly adopted his toys for her own and left him with two cars. Here are some cute birthday pics.

Oompa Loompa

Notice the hair and slight curl. So funny!

Daddy made Maizer into an oompa loompa that is hilarious. He doesn't have the actual costume or face paint but other than that we cracked up good over this one. :)

Christmas is coming together!

This calendar has been in the family for a long, long time. I remember having it when I was a little girl, so it is really fun to keep it for my family.

We decorated our home and got our tree up the first week of December. Here is what we have. I think it is beautiful and I love the atmosphere. :) Sorry the Christmas tree is blury and I didn't know it when I took it. But here it is anyway.

Like Mommy .... Like Son

Here I am with the same hair, eye shape, nose, and smile.
Maizer with his blue, blue eyes.

Ok - I knew I had a photo that really looked like Maizer but I couldn't find the close up of my face like the picture of Maizer but this is close enough I think. This what people call a "nice blend". :) You know - where your kid looks like daddy and mommy pretty evenly. I'll need to do Hannah next. :) I am about 2 here and Maizer will be 2 in about 3 weeks.

Like Daddy ... Like Son

Here is Daddy's crazy hair.......
And here is Maizer's crazy hair.

Here is Maizer as a baby.

Here is Josh as a little baby.

Here are some comparative pictures of Josh and maizer. Maizer had reddish hair when he was born and blue eyes so Josh was like where did this kid come from??? Well...let's just see. LOL

Hannah's Preschool Halloween Recital Oct. 30th 2008

Preschooler magic is very powerful. Watch out!
"The Witch's Brew" Notice the smoking pot....

All of Hannah's classmates.

LOL She is so funny.

Here is Hannah's favorite song "Black Cat".

Grandpa took all these pictures for mommy so I could tape it for Daddy.

Isn't she an adorable little pumpkin? :)

She was a great performer. I could hear her clearly.

Hannah starting a song.

Hannah entering with her class to perform for us.

Hannah was so dang cute as a pumpkin for her Halloween recital at preschool. She sang the songs at home all month and she still sings one of her favorites "Black Cat" to this day. :) She has so much fun with her class. I am so glad I found this school. They do so many neat things and rotate 5 times a day to go to Music time, Art time, Math, Language Arts, and Free Play with snacks in the middle. She's busy and loves it. She goes on Tuesdays and Thursdays and poor Maizer wants to stay when we drop her off. He misses her so much when she is gone.
