I went to IOWA!!!  Okay, maybe this doesn't sound that exciting to you, but it was for me b/c it's where my sister lives!!!  I hadn't seen Katherine for over 3 years!  We had a great time.  We went shopping, out to lunch several times, watched TV together, hung out talking, played games, played with her cute girls, sang in church, etc.  It was so nice to just spend time together!  Thanks for everything Katherine!

 I don't think Claire hates me, she was just sad I couldn't stay longer!  Me too, Claire-bear!!!

Lincoln turns TWO

Our little Linc turned TWO today!  Seriously?  Wow!  I can't believe he is two already!  He is such a fun boy...and absolutely crazy!  He is super physical and can do anything he sets his mind to.  He is talking more and more all the time, but still just one word at a time.  But, he definitely gets his point across even without a lot of words!  He is funny and silly and frustrating and exhausting!  We sure do love him...happy birthday LINC!!!!

 The big kids helped me make Lincoln a construction themed cake....complete with oreo "dirt", chocolate boulders, and constructions trucks.
 Carson pulled out his front tooth the day before.  The other front tooth is loose too...yikes!

Lincoln ripped through his presents!  He got Trios, a monster truck, a book, and a toy gun.
 That's one messy, happy birthday boy!!!
We love you Lincoln!!!

Lincoln loves babies!

Lincoln just loves babies, which is a good thing since we're gonna have one soon!  He loves playing with Brynlee's dolls.  He puts them to bed, then says "out!" when they get up and says "poopy" when they need a diaper change.  It's really cute!  What a sweet boy!

Sometimes he climbs in the little crib!
