Final Bash

Well, I got on here and started loading pictures from this party we had the other night before my parents' left, and then I realized I have some other pictures that are too cute not to post so we'll do them first.

Mckinley figured out how to climb up on to the computer chair. I can't believe how big this girl is.

She was so proud of herself when she got up there and apparently she knows what to do on a computer. She got right to work pounding on the keyboard and playing with the mouse.

Mckinley has been a little weird with her naps lately. Sometimes she takes them, sometimes she doesn't. And when she doesn't, you'll usually find her every now and then laying on the floor just relaxing.

Crackers anyone? I think Mckinley has a few to share.

Last Friday I went to lunch with my mom, Aunts, and sisters-in-law. We went to Cafe Paesan, it was my first time there and I loved it. It was really fun hanging out with everyone.

Mckinley is so obsessed with babies right now and always wants to hug or kiss them. This is my cute nephew Ezra.

And just because I know most of you are probably too lazy to zoon in on that last picture, I did it for you. Look at that pucker!!! And those chubby cheeks. Ahh, I just love it. Mckinley's kisses are awesome. As well as her hugs. And squeezes. We can't get enough of any of it.

Okay, so now we get to Saturday night. My family all came over and we had dinner and then played Just Dance on the Wii outside with my sister's massive outdoor movie screen. It was a blast!

Kristen and her boyfriend, Dayne.

Ella with Ezra.

My dad with Ezra. (I think this was taken another night but I had to get a picture of both of my parents on here since they are gone now and we didn't really take a goodbye picture.)

My mom with Ezra. (Can you tell we love Ezra? He is so stinking cute and tiny!)

Here is everyone playing Just Dance. This was the first time I'd seen this game and it was really fun. Mckinley was trying to copy everyone, it was so awesome. (Even though this picture doesn't show it.)

Sunday night Bryant and Summer came back over with a birthday cake for my mom since her birthday is on Thursday this week and she will be in China for it. Mckinley had a taste of the whipped cream before we cut the cake. :)

And this picture I just had to add because I think it's so funny. Mckinley loves putting people's shoes on and walking around in them. I always love it when kids do that. She totally just started doing it all on her own about a week or two ago and she always does it. Also, she is squatting because for some reason when I tell her to smile, she squats instead. Gotta love the after-nap hair. :)

So my parents left yesterday and for all I know, they're still traveling. They start teaching school next Monday and I am nervous for them! They are teaching to college students. Crazy. I hope the next 10 months fly by because I miss them already...

That is so cute! I love everything you have posted. And I miss you guys like crazy! LOL I miss Kinley because she isnt there to "snoop" in my diaper bag.

Wow, that Ezra IS a cutie and has awesome hair too. Cute pics.. and isn't it funny how the babies just help themselves on up to anything they can. Lincoln climbs ALL OVER, I go crazy just trying to make sure he's not going to break his neck :) Let's get together again soon... how's next week? Maybe THurs or Fri?

I can't believe how big she is getting! It just kills me that our babies are almost a year and a half. It is fun to see that McKinley is doing many of the same things Averie is doing. She is so cute!
