Mary's 22 Month Birthday

For Mary's 22 Month Birthday Party we had lots of family from both Michigan and the D.C. area come and visit. It was nice to see family that we hadn't seen in so long and some that Mary and Jackson had never met. Ryan made a North Pole cake, complete with marshmallow snowmen sporting Christmas scarves and little frosting black-hats and Santa's workshop made out of graham crackers. Here are some pictures of the festivus!

Christmas Eve Pictures

Hi Everyone!
My apologies for not posting these sooner, I'm playing a little catch up.

Here are some pictures from Christmas Eve:

As you can see, Jackson learned to sit on his own, with help from his cube that he got from Uncle David. Mary had a great time with her cousin Billy and loved seeing Santa Claus.

I'll post some pictures from Christmas Day a little later today. Busy Busy!

Pre Christmas Pictures

Merry Christmas Eve Everyone! I know we'll have tons of photos to post after Christmas so I figured I would catch up on these before the big day. We've had grandparents and cousins visiting so lots of excitement. Here goes!

Well a few days ago, Mary's friend Anna had her second Birthday. She came over to open the present that Mary gave her. Mary was very excited to see Anna open it.

Jackson is learning to sit up on his own now and doing quite well, but I think he will stand before he sits and walk before he crawls!

Jackson, like Mary, absolutely loves Sam! (I think the feeling is mutual!)

A picture of Jackson sitting. . .

Jackson with Grandpa Bill. . . do you think they look alike?? hmmm. . ...

Mary made Christmas cookies and took them to the rescue squad with Grandma and Grandpa!

Mary absolutely loved playing with her cousin Billy! They were SO cute together. Here Mary is showing Billy how to use the gear toy.

Here Mary and Billy are playing with Puzzles. . .

Billy is reading Mary a Tigger story!

Now Mary is telling Billy about Trucks!!!

Just a cute picture of Mary telling daddy something. . .

Have a great Christmas!!

Mary Driving!!

Some of you may have seen this already. It is a video that we took of Mary last week while the weather was warmer. She is driving her KidKart mounted on a Z500 demo power base. We rigged it up with a mini-proportional joystick, which Mary is much better at using than the proximity switches we were using before.

We are submitting the order for Mary's own chair now and hopefully if all goes right we will have it sometime this spring!! Here is what Mary's chair will look like:

"Popstar Pink" is the color she chose, she is very excited to get it!
