Happy 2nd Birthday!

Ansel's an official two year old.. yikes! We had two little parties for him.. one up in Springfield the weekend before (Roya and the girls were down too) and then Grandma and Grandpa Sneddon and Aunt Rachel came over to our place to sing to him on his birthday! By the second time around he was REALLY having fun with the unwrapping part and kept asking for more.. (and wanted to unwrap everything under the tree!) He also liked his cake He kept saying, "I love cake" and "My big cake". (he says "I like...." and "I love.." everything right now!)

Time to unwrap presents!

Ansel knows what "hot" means, and got a little worried that the "hot" candle was so close to him!

He had a lot of fun playing.. driving the cars throught the ice cream and cake!
All done!!!

Time for clean-up!
The cake I made for the first party (we went simple with the second one and just made cupcakes!)
Anxious to dig in!!

Make a wish!

Testing out the presents!

Belated Thanksgiving pictures

We had a very fun Thanksgiving! Cousins Evan and Camille got to come this year! They live in Idaho, so we were very excited to get to see them.

We even got an updated cousins picture, although it will soon be outdated! (Cody's sister Kim is due in February!) Kim and her family got to come up too!
This is always such a busy time of year! Between holidays, there is also our anniversary(third this year) and Ansel's birthday!

Ansel wasn't real happy through all the pictures!

Grandma and Grandpa with all the grandkids! The kids have grown just a little from the last time they were all together for a picture!

We went to Springfield to see my family the day afterThanksgiving.. these picture aren't really Thanksgiving related.. but they were cute... Every time Grandma would come out with her walker, Ansel would run over, grab on to it, and start walking with her. (Although he tried to "pull" her along a little too fast sometimes!

Ansel also go to "ride" Grandma's reindeer outside.

Aunt Amanda had some fun with the reindeer as well!
