Halloween 2010

The kids had a great time carving pumpkins and trick-or-treating this year. They went as a Clemson football player and a cheerleader. They were both super cute and got lots of rave reviews! More pictures of carving and tot-ing are on Picasa!

20 Week Ultrasound

We had the big ultrasound yesterday and found out... it's a boy! We are very excited to meet our little guy. :) He looked great - all his measurements were right on target. He weighs about 13 ounces and is around 10 inches long. We get to see him again next month since he was hiding against the placenta and wouldn't let the tech get all the measurements she needed.
Now to find a name... wonder how long that will take us. :P

Here are a few of the pics Katie took last week. We've had a super busy month and I have a ton of pictures to upload now that my computer is back! I've added the pictures Katie took to Picasa, but I don't have the ones off my camera yet... soon though!

These pics are with the kids' pumpkins they picked from Lyon Family Farms. It was an awesome visit to the farm and I have lots of pictures from the trip.

Meredith the Hoodlum

Meredith has decided that she likes to wear Michael's Elmo hat. It's super funny as she runs around destroying things like a hoodlum. So we call her either Destructor or the Hoodlum. :) What I think is hilarious is that she always picks the days that she's wearing girly dresses to do this... it's so incongruous, but cute! More pics on Picasa of this hilarity.

4th of July

Katie and Philip came over to celebrate with us. We had tons of fun playing with the kiddos, making (and eating!) pizza, and then we went to see the Bridge Street fireworks. Katie made this awesome collage of some of the pics she took, and I stole it from her blog. :) So here you go!

Caprese Salad and Bison Burgers

Yummo! This is a knock-off of Caprese salad... it has fresh mozzerella, fresh tomatoes, a yummy garlic oil dressing, balsamic vinegar, and some garlic salt. No basil because I don't really care for it! Mix well and eat with a fork! We were a EarthFare a few weeks ago when this was one of their samples, but they were out of the garlic oil dressing, so we couldn't get any. But they were back in stock when we went this week, so yay! Both kiddos like it too... which is good, but then I have to share it. :( I made 2 giant bowls of it this week and we've eaten it all!

Bison burgers... we had those yesterday... no pics, sorry, but they look just like regular hamburgers, so you can just imagine. :) They were really delicious! Bison is apparently quite good for you, but we've never had it before. I would get it again.

Did I mention we love EarthFare?!?! lol Really though, it is awesome! I still like Publix/Target for basics, but EarthFare is great for meats and produce. :)

Potty Training... Round 2

Well, Meredith has been "working" on potty training for about 3 months now. And by working on it, I mean that I'm the one working while she ignores me with a super-cute smile. So, I decided to give up for a while a few months ago. While the kids were with Mom a few weeks ago, Mom started training her again. Once again, Meredith participated wonderfully, having very few accidents. Then, after we got back home, she went back to her old way of refusing to participate. I was so frustrated with her since I know she knows what to do, but just refuses. One day, we had a little talk... that day was the last day she wore diapers/pullups. She has now been daytime potty trained - including trips to the store! - for about 10 days now! She wears pullups to nap/bed, but has only woken up wet once!

So, Meredith is potty-trained! YAAAAAY!!!!!! I am so happy to not be changing diapers anymore! :) Michael is now nap-trained as well and doing very well working on night-time training... he's been getting up at least once per night to potty, but usually still has a wet pullup in the mornings. But, I'm still super happy with his progress!

Florida Trip

Mom and I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Florida with the kids! We left on Tuesday, the 15th, from York and Chris picked us up in Atlanta on Sunday, the 20th. It was super fast and crazy, but we had a great time. Both kids would live in the water if you let them. :) I didn't get many pictures since we spent so much time driving or in the water, but here's a few...

Meredith with Great-Grandma (Dad's Mom)

They both loved the motorcycle!

The bike belongs to my cousin. He let them play on it all afternoon!

This hilarious pic was not posed... I just happened to take the picture at exactly the right moment! He was showing off his new hat, cool outfit, and the hotel window/view, lol.

Laundry and Haircuts

Michael decided to help me with laundry this morning... here's what I found when I came to check on his progress. :)

Meredith got a haircut today. She looks so grown-up. I decided she needed a summer hair-do so she could be cooler! It's been so hot already that I am not looking forward to the actual summer. Here she is playing outside...

Mini Update

Meredith is in her big-girl bed now! She's doing really well. She sleeps in her bed all night, but likes to sleep on the floor during naps... So strange! She also is starting to talk and it's so cute!

Michael is totally potty-trained now except for night-time. He's even staying dry for most naps! He is so much fun to talk to - he's full of opinions! Right now he's working on learning to ride his tricycle... he's almost got it figured out. :)

I think that's about it for now. We're on Spring Break this week, so hopefully I'll have some time to add some more pictures to Picasa.

<3 to all!

Not sure when I'll have to time actually update this, but just wanted everyone who reads this to know I updated the Picasa albums. :)
Love you all!
