St. Patricks Day 2011

So for St. Patrick's Day 2011 we set our trap to try and catch the leprechaun. I did it last year and Tannon had a lot of fun with it, so I thought I would make it a new tradition. This year Barrett got to enjoy the fun and understood what was going on.
This is our trap, with lots of gold treasures inside!
This is the next morning! And he got away again with our treasure! Its funny the kids kinda get nervous to look to see if they caught him, I guess a tiny, green leprechaun would kinda be scary to find trapped in a hamper basket,lol!
He may have escaped but he left his tiny green foot prints leading to the closet and the kids found some fun St. Patrick's Day surprises that he left them.
Looking through their surprises!

He got them some green to wear so they wont get pinched, what a good ideas I thought.

My boy turned 2!

On March 13th, 2011 Barrett turned 2! I can not believe how fast time flies, I wish they would grow slower.
Barrett loves balls so I decided to make his party baseball themed, which he loved!
Here is a close up of the cake and cookies I made, the cake is actually two cookies put together. Barrett also loves cookies so that's why the cake is cookie. It took a lot of work but I think they turned out cute, the things we do for our kids!
Tannon was so excited for her brother party, she was such a big helper and great big sister.
Me and my happy birthday boy!
Barrett with cousin Emma!
Opening presents! He wasn't a big fan of opening presents so his sister helped a lot.

Barrett for sure got spoiled but he did get lots of clothes which he needed.
A hug for his sister! I just loving having a boy and girl, they are so different but its so fun to see how much they love each other.

My boy is two, that is just so crazy! Of course he is 2 1/2 when I posting this because I am such a slacker when it comes to blogging but he has grown so much! I am so blessed to have Barrett and Tannon in my life, they make my days so much fun and I just love them so much!
