Girls Weekend

It's really hard finding a weekend that works for all of us. We talked about going in December but life was so crazy. We briefly mentioned going this passed weekend a few months ago and it kind of withered away with other things going on. Then a few weeks ago a group message was passed around about this passed weekend and it actually worked!

My wonderful mom friends, Lisa and Ellen are who I am talking about. We have known each other since we were very young- like 7 or 8 years old. But we became wonderful friends when Isaac was little- maybe a year or so. We have stuck together over the years. Sometime we meet at the park for a quick playdate, sometime we go to dinner just as adults, and sometimes its just a group chat. It has been fun. 

So it was the three moms and 4 girls.

We arrived on Friday evening for pizza and swimming. On Saturday morning we did rides at the MOA followed by lunch at the American Girl Bistro. After lunch we did some mom shopping and then dinner and more swimming and girl time. On Sunday we hit a couple more stores before hitting the road on the way home. 

We came up with a team name, or a couple team names. The favorite was, girls rule- boys drool! Another was the glitter girls. The girls had so much fun. 

Anna cried when our friends dropped us off. She was so sad to see the weekend come to an end. I was, too.

Anna Marie Oliver

Anna was born on 12/16/10 @ 4:07pm. She weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 20 inches long. The delivery was the easiest part of my day. After she was born I hemorrhaged and lost 1200 cc's of blood and was taken to the OR to stop the bleeding. Thankfully they got the bleeding under control. After I got back to the room I developed a major spinal headache from the epidural. I went in for 2 different blood patches that never did quite fix it. They would help for about 24 hours or so and then the headache would come back. I ended up spending 5 days flat on my back. People were constantly here taking care of Isaac and only bringing Anna in to nurse. I am so blessed to have all the help but still devastated I wasn't able to spend the time with my new baby and my energetic toddler. I am finally feeling better and am able to be upright for a longer period of time. Thank God. It has been an emotional roller coaster.

Anna is perfect. She eats, sleeps and poops. I forgot how much newborns sleep! Is…

Happy 2nd Birthday Anna!

Oh Happy Birthday to our wild and crazy little girl! One thing for sure I learned this Birthday is having a girl is completely different than having a boy. Pink everything! Pink took kit, pink legos, pink minnie mouse, purse with make up, minnie mouse dress up, and on and on! 
Anna started the day with a few melt downs but as the day went on things went better. When people showed up for the party she was having so much fun! She loved being the center of the party, for sure! 
To my Anna, 
2 years ago you came into our lives and you have changed our world. You strong willed and you think you are the boss. I laugh when you yell at Ozzy, which is most of the time. You and Isaac play well, most of the time. There is the occasional pinch or hit (usually on your part). I have learned to stop fighting you on things like putting socks and shoes on before we go in the car, or putting your coat on. I just bring it with us because you want to do it on your time. I know that you mostly just want …

Visiting Santa

The kids wanted to wait until we got to Arizona to see Santa. That's what we did, the first morning we were there. It is a fun interactive Santa with games and a naughty or nice meter. 
They were both pretty excited to talk to the big guy. Anna stuck around as long as she could.
