Happy Birthday Adie

Yesterday Adie turned two. I can't wait to see pictures from her birthday. I never posted pictures after my 3 weeks with Melissa. And I got some great pictures. Here are some of my favorites. Adie and Porter standing on my bed, and Adie sitting on Porters head. Sounds like I could make a poem out of that.

A day at the coast

It was so cold but the boys didn't want to leave. We found this huge driftwood. It was great for climbing and had a cool little pool of water under it. They boys all took off their shoes and rolled up their pants and played in the water. Holy frozen toes batman. Thank goodness for "handwarmers".

Wild and crazy boys

Amy came and stayed with us a week. It was so fun to have her and the boys. These boys are so crazy. I wonder where they got that from? Oh yeah, their mom!!

We were with Amy and Sarah and their kids for Halloween weekend. This Friday night before going to Ali's school for trick or treating. They also went trunk or treating on Saturday night and got way too much candy.
Ali was Hermoine. Perfect hair for the part.

Andy was piglet but didn't care too much.

Lincon the Knight. That hat just wouldn't stay on his head.

Mike's new ouchey.

Mike went dirt bike riding with his brother Dan and nephew Shaylin on Father's day weekend. I keep telling him not to get off until the bike comes to a complete stop. He just doesn't listen.

This picture on the bottom is two days after hitting the rock and the swelling had gone down. The picture on the top shows the difference between his two knees. We are going to the doctor this afternoon. Quite frankly the picture just doesn't do it justice.
PS: The scars on the right shin are from the snowmobile falling on him in April.
Are we getting to old for this?

Mandy and Rob had their twins on April 9, 2010. Unfortunately Mandy had to have a C-section.
I zoomed down to So. Cal to help Mandy out.

Both babies were in the NICU for the whole two weeks I was there. Robert Graham in Irvine and Oneta Simone in Anaheim.

The day after I left, Simone was moved to Irvine (which is much closer) and Robert Graham got to come home.

This first picture is me holding baby Simone for the first time. She was so alert. She would look at me and then look at her mom then back at me, then at her mom. She's a beauty.

This picture is of me holding Robert Graham. I had held him before but I must have upset him because he spit up and then cried. It even went in his nose and the nurse had to come and suck out his nose. I gave him back to his mom, and decided to try again another day.

I came home to help Sarah this week. Andrew had a cardiac cath. on Monday and then a surgery on Wednesday. He is home now and doing well. John should be home from Egypt today also. It's good for families to be back together.

For more updates on Andy and the twins, Andrew has a blog and so does Mandy and Rob.

While I was in California, my niece Lauren was married. I was able to attend the sealing in the San Diego Temple. I was also able to help "the amazing sisters" dip strawberries. I believe they dipped 400.
(PS. The amazing sisters are Vicki and Chrissy.)

I also got to hang out with Ashton for a while so his mom could go in and see Mandy and baby Robert. Boy do I have cute grandkids or what?
