Girls’ Weekend 2014

Dear Hayden,

You, Nana and I spent this weekend in California! We visited Auntie Kim, Madi and Grandpa Rog in Santa Maria, had a great time at our hotel (which had the most amazing and beautiful lagoon) and visiting the sites in Santa Barbara and then we went to Mireille’s Bridal shower and then went out with Mireille and Ben and stayed with Mireille to spend some extra time with her. It was such a great weekend and so fun to have some time with just the girls!

Love you,

At the airport waiting for our flight!

Talking the Talk

Dear Bennett,

You have become quite the talker. You talk in complete sentences all day long, but the way you say certain words makes me smile so many times every day!

Here are some of your words:
Milk – “bonk”
Mickey Mouse – “Bickey Bounce”
Thank you – “tah-too”
Burped – “Bupped”
Donuts – “Ya-yos”
Choo Choo – “Mmmmm-Mmmmmm” (This one is like a hum — it cracks us all up!)

Also, every bird is a “quack” and every cat sighting has you saying “Meow! Meow!” instead of the word cat!

I wanted to get these written down because before I know it you’ll be saying them all right and I’ll forget all your cute little words.

Love you,
