Baby Time

While in Tahoe  for Megan's going away party I was able to sneak down to Lincoln to my Cousin-in-Law (Carrie)'s Baby shower. Her lil boy Cole will be here so soon!!!
 I was really nice to see all my wonderful family. We had a really nice time. My cousins Megan and Camie and my auntie Laurie all did a beautiful job! Miss you guys already!

Adorable Baby Levi awake...

I wish I could do that!

Jamaican Me Crazy...

This is Megan McCarthy Hicks.. and she is leaving for the Peace Corps...

This post isn't about how Megan is one of the most selfless people, giving away more than two years of her life to help those who are in need... all the way in Jamaica... No, this about how much fun we had right before she left...

It all started a month or so ago when our friend Jenny started to plan a going away party. Megan knew she was having a get together but didn't know who was coming. I wasn't going to be able to make it. I knew from the minute I told Jenny that, I was going to be sooooo sad for missing this last chance to Meg before she left. I just didn't know how I was going to get up there. With the help of friends coordinating rides:) and Jeremy pushing me to go I was able to head up to Tahoe for the big surprise! Megan had friends surprising her throughout the day on friday...that night some friends were taking Megan bowling and that is where I surprised Megan! It was soooo awesome she had no idea I was coming. there were tears!!! lots of happy tears!!
We actually talked the night before and she was trying not to rub it in about her weekend she thought I wasn't coming to:) haha!  she was a little mad at me for lying to her. But she got over it:) 

Meg's surprise party at The Moose Lodge was Saturday night... she didn't think she was having a "party" party she thought we were all going bar hopping... she thought  a bunch of people couldn't come like her mom who supposedly had to work:) so when Jenny just needed to stop by the Moose lodge for a sec, Meg had no idea everyone and their sister (thanks Nicole for coming:) was inside waiting for her . We had a great time she was so surprised! everyone did a great job and I think she felt very loved!

Megan we all love you so very much! good luck!!!!!
***A very big thanks to Adrienne and Jay for letting me use some of their awesome pics! thanks for capturing so much fun!!

This is Ground Control to Major Tom....

River turned two on Feb. 21st, so we had a birthday party that  weekend for him. The party was outer space theme... It was outta this world:) We originally planned for the party to be at the park down the street (it was 75* the week before!)  but of  course it rained the whole night before.. so it was way too soggy and cold! It worked out fine... unlike last years party rain out , our house down here is a billion times bigger:) this was the smallest party I have ever had for the boys but we were surrounded by really great people! The fudge family, Tori and Aeson, my mama, my brother and his girls made the trip, but I didnt get any pics of his beautiful family; (! 
We had a craft that actually went pretty well,some snacks  and lots of running around! River "The  Birthday Grump" made his appearance, just as he did last year... actually all of my kids are super grumpy at their parties... hmm. Anyways Mr. No Nap Fit Thrower hung in till the last hour of the party then crashed. Nothing like passing out at your own party! He's lucky we didn't draw all over his face:) 


Crazy boyz!


Tori and Aeson!


I want to thank my mom for traveling from Tahoe to spend time with us and help out!
 I love u Mumzy!
