The End of January

Wow January has flown by!  I haven't blogged as much this month and weirdly I haven't missed it haha.  I guess we don't do a ton of exciting things so I feel like there isn't always something to write about.  I am looking forward to so many great things this year!  In a few weeks Grant's mom is coming to visit and we haven't seen her in a while (besides Skype) so it will be great to have her get to know Emmett.  Last time she was here he was a baby that didn't move much, but made lots of noise, now he is a wild monkey so she will get to see him in action.
Last week we went to a 1 year old birthday party, we went to the beach, we went to the park, Emmett had his 2 year old Dr. check up, and much more.
Here we are at the birthday party.  It was lots of fun. They had a balloon artist and a jump house.

Here we are ready for the Dr. all smiles till the shots or owwies as we call them.
Here we are at the beach playing in the sand.  It was cold, but lots of fun.

 Today we went to the park and ran around.  It was cool and drizzling.  We stayed at least an hour till it became too wet. Emmett slipped and fell twice, thankfully not getting hurt too much.

Its been a fun month.

Helping Around the House

Emmett loves to help around the house.  He loves to help wash dishes.  Sometimes he will help pick up his toys (this we are still working on LOL).  Over all I find he loves to be part of the family, not doing chores as if its a punishment, but loves to be a helping hand in what we are doing.  Then there are other days when he likes to undo everything we are doing hahahhaa.

Grandma (Mom) Turns 60

On Saturday it was my mom's 60th birthday!  We didn't really have anything planned because she said "I don't want a party."  The night before Lacey text me and said we should do something so we threw together a surprise hang out party (not really a party).  Saturday noon we went to my Grandpa's house to bring him lunch and see how he was doing after his fall.  Then we headed back to my house.  My mom kept saying lets do something fun hahaha I kept stalling saying, well lets wait till Emmett wakes up from his nap.  Then she said, lets look up what might be happening today, in the mean time I was running around vacuuming and cleaning.  Finally I starting showing her random crap for sale on craigslist because I knew they were coming over soon hahahha.

Grant kept giving me the side eye and whispering I think she knows something is up.  I kept saying shhh stop whispering things to me or she will really know something is up.
Anyways the Donatelli family showed up with cake and balloons and my mom was super surprised.  She was like now it all makes sense that you were showing me weird stuff on the internet and why you said you went shopping for milk so early in the morning hahahha.

We all had a super fun time, but I think Emmett had the best time!  He was soo excited to see his 2 best friends when he woke up he started crying with excitement!  I was all too much for a 23 month old!  The rest of the night the kids ran around laughing and screaming having the best time, turns out all you need is 3 balloons for loads of fun.

 My mom and her favorite little girl!

 We were laughing hysterically because the balloon I was holding was very attracted to my face LOL

 Finally I realized just let it go higher than my head hahhhaa
 One of us takes pictures very seriously!
 60 looks really good!
 Dean and Hazel fell asleep, but not Emmett!  I am serious when I say he will only sleep in bed hahaha.

Pismo Weekend Away continued...

We had such a great long weekend away, we walked every morning on the beach and relaxed during the day.  We saw the Monarch Butterfly Colony and we climbed trees (or rather Grant and Emmett went in the trees), we went out to steak dinner, and we went to a local bar one night and played pool.  The weekend was nice and relaxing and most important lots of fun!

Here is the link from when we went back in 2012 (Grant had a beard LOL)
