remember me?

Sorry I have been neglecting this blog. I really don't have much to type about - just a typical family.

Nolan just turned 4. He is still just a few inches too short to ride the roller coaster at carnivals (although last year he was able to ride. They upped the height requirement this year. Fortunately, Nolan is a very easy-going kid and was ok with waiting until he gets taller to ride again - of course, that was after a few tears.)
I was about to update his birthday ticker at the top of the blog when I realized that he will be 5! I know that is almost a year away, but 5 sounds like a big kid, not my little, baby Nolan.

Grace is crazy. One of her many nicknames is Little Trouble. She is full of energy and all the time getting into trouble. On her 2nd birthday, she climbed on top of her dresser during nap time and fell off. She got a nice big goose egg above her eye for her birthday. Guess I should have taken that as a warning that Grace and 2s will be full of danger!

I will add pictures at some point. You have got to see Grace's hair. She has the must beautiful blond curls on the back of her head (the front of her hair is straight).

At her 2 year appointment, she was 32" tall and 26 lbs. She is just below average height/weight for her age.

Nolan's 4 year check up should be any day now, just waiting on his slack mother (cough) to call the dr and set up the appointment.

Vote for Grace!

We entered Grace in the Parent's magazine cover contest. We think she is the cutest little girl in the world, now we just need all of you (at least the 1 person left who reads this blog) to vote for her!

Cary's cousin, Morgan, took the great pictures at Easter.

The kids are growing like weeds.
Grace is a big ball of energy in a tiny little body.
Nolan is so much fun now and he's a great helper.

We went to an easter egg hunt at First Atlanta over the weekend. They had a petting zoo and pony rides. Grace and Nolan loved the petting zoo! Grace wasn't so sure about the pony ride while she was sitting on the pony waiting for it to start walking. As soon as the pony started to move, she started to laugh. Nolan has always loved pony rides. He also started laughing as soon as the pony started to move.

here are pics of the the kids at a local park, the easter egg hunt, and easter (and pics of the easter egg hunt at my mom's on easter):

(I made Grace's dress and hair bow. I know the pic is sideways - just turn your head like last time and it's straight. You know if it took me this long just to upload with sideways pics, it will take about forever to updated with non-sideways pics)

and an video of Nolan saying his ABCs (he can do better, but that's all he wanted to do for the camera)

I started making hair bows for Grace. I like making them so much, that I opened a store on etsy. There's a link to my store (MollyAnne Designs) in the right column of the blog. There's also a link to BooZeeba, the company with Mary Ann, Ellen, and me. BooZeeba specializes in dolls and travel tracks.

Some times I feel sorry for all the other kids in the world. No matter how hard they try, they can't be as cute as this.

Grace's hair is finally long enough to put in pigtails. Her hair sticks straight up whenever I pull it up.
I asked her to smile so I could get a picture of her with her pigtails sticking straight up. This is what she kept doing.
