Birthday Cookies

Happy Birthday Alex!! Alex's birthday was actually yesterday but we were having too much fun to take the time to blog about it. We really didn't do much but just had a great day as a family. Alex got Fable II for his birthday last week so he said I couldn't spend more than a couple of dollars for a present for him on his actual birthday. So he ended up with Chocodiles and Oreos. The funny thing is I think that he was about as excited for those as he was for the game! We did end up getting him Seafarers of Catan as well, but that's just cause I like to spoil him and we got it for a good deal. =) So the day was spent playing Catan and then we all went out to the Chinese Gourmet for dinner. It was a fun day! We love having Daddy around all day!!!

As you can see, Zaylee is just like her daddy when it comes to cookies. As soon as we sang Happy Birthday and gave him the cookies she was begging for a try. We left the room for a minute and came back to find her with two cookies smashed together and the face of a cookie monster! So although Alex wouldn't let me take pictures of him, I did get Zaylee enjoying his presents.

Shrek Obsessed

Well, I just noticed that it's been awhile since I have posted so I decided to go through my pictures to see if there is anything to post about. Shrek seems to be the reoccuring theme so here are a bunch of Zaylee new favorite toys!

Zaylee with Shrek the first day we got him--we had had the little ones for quite awhile but the big one was a gift from her adopted grandma--our primary president that was just released.

For Zaylee's naptimes the first few weeks after getting her new Shrek she had to have her naps with ALL of her Shrek toys (Don't ya just love her chubby little face!!) =)

Mom and Zaylee coloring time--it actually ended up being Mom and Shrek cast coloring time. Zaylee made sure each character had their own crayon and if I tried to borrow it from them she freaked out at me!

On a side note, I was just given new primary counselor duties. Now I am over 8-10 year old Cub Scouts and am absolutely clueless! SO all you primary wonder women out there any clues you could give me on how to fulfill my calling would be GREATLY appreciated! =) Thanks!!! (No, really, I am serious I want you to leave me messages or call me or email me or anything...I really need your help!!!)
