Spring Fever 2010

Pseudo Easter Pictures
MARCH 27, 2010
We've had the tradition of doing Easter Pictures every year since Mikelle was a baby. Since Christian was a March baby, we would do his birthday pictures then as well. However, this year was different. Kiddie Kandids went bust, and I wasn't sure I wanted to try another studio. I was used to a free birthday 8x10 from Kiddie Kandids as well as having a year to order photos. I decided to just grab the camera and do more fun candid shots this year.

Based on the above picture, I'm not sure how it worked out.

My Baby Boy. Are you really SIX?!

Another St. Patrick's Day rolled around, and in our house that means Christian had another birthday. I am in denial at how much he's grown and I just want to cry when I see pictures of my babies when they are so little. I think back to my surprise for having him on March 17th. I was so miserable from so many complications in his pregnancy that I was looking forward to hitting 38 weeks (on 3/18) and being immediately induced. It never occurred to me that on his own, Christian would spare me an extra 36 hours of misery. lol

You look like this right now...always so full of life...and humor, even if it's at someone else's expense....

Halloween 2009...our fun lil' Frankie. If your expression doesn't get in the Halloween spirit, I don't know what does...

A year ago, towards the end of Pre-School. You did so well in Little Coyotes.

Halloween 2007...our Astronaut
(Note: I got the costume on E-bay from a lady in Vancouver - hence the Canadian flag. Since I adore Canada, I just added an American Flag on the opposite arm and kept the Canadian Flag.)

Another Green Birthday! March 17, 2007! You were half the age you are now! :sniff:

Age 2 1/2 I can't believe you've grown so much - or that Danielle got you to stand still long enough to take this adorable photo at her house!
June 2006...our Colorado trip and a happy little guy....

Your 18 month picture. You just LOVE gadgets. A cell phone kept you happy for pictures!

Is this really you? My five-month old happy little guy! This was taken about a month before we moved into the Queen Creek house.

Happy Birthday, Sweetie!

Christian's Birthday Party
We celebrated his birthday the Saturday after at Desert Mountain Park. His kindergarten teacher even came! And it was Spring Break! Here he is with his teacher and a friend from class that came to his party.

Christian blowing out the candles. Katie's parents are right there and there is Ms. Litle again! (I'm taking the pictures of course)
The next week, since it was Spring Break for Mom as well as the kids' second week of SB, we went on a hike with our friend Corbin and his Mom, Corina. We went to Lost Dutchman State Park and the Goldfield Ghost Town, just north of Apache Junction. It was so beautiful with it being all green. I'm sad that this park will be closed after June. Thank Arizona's crappy Legislature!

There is Corina walking behind the kids.

What's a Old Western pic without kids at the Bordello?
