What we've been up to...

My best friend from childhood, Katie, was married to a wonderful guy. Brandon and I took a quick trip to the wedding without the kiddies. It was over too fast. :)

Carly started her second year for preschool. She is so happy to be back in school but has already decided that she doesn't want to go to kindergarten.

We had an extra cool summer this year and didn't have many beach days as a result. This was a beautiful day and we had a great time. This is Carly with her BFF, Kaylen.

I captured my nephews infamous stink eye!

Tyler really enjoyed playing in the sand which was a first. By the end of the day, he was completely covered in sand!

Three peas in a pod. Blaine couldn't stand having Tyler sit on his mama's lap and so he climbed on too!

We had the first Webb Family Reunion this year. As many of you already know, I'm not the greatest photographer so I didn't get many pictures. I did get a picture of Tyler with his new cousin. Her name is Daisy and my cousin and his wife adopted her in June. She has Down Syndrome just like Tyler and we already consider her a kindred spirit.

Last but not least, Emily and Chad and their kiddies were in town so we joined them at Disneyland. It was so great to see them and spend the day together. We miss having them close by!

Tyler turns the big 2!

A few weeks ago, we celebrated our sweet boy's 2nd birthday. We did a train theme for his party and had a little family party.
Brandon picked up some train conductor hats for the party.

Tyler was so excited to open his presents! Well, he wasn't completely aware of what was going on but this is a rare picture where we actually captured a smile!

He did enjoy pulling the paper off his presents and making a mess. :)

Here's Tyler's birthday cake. I got this great idea to make a train going up a mountain. Another fun cake to make that I think turned out fabulous not to toot my own horn. :)

Tyler getting ready to blow out his candles. He had a little, well, a lot of help from his sister. :)

Shoveling cake in as fast as he could!

Do I have something on my face?

We are so thankful for our sweet boy. He loves to give hugs and kisses. Tyler loves to play with his sister. He is always happy. We are so grateful to have such a special spirit in our home and for all that he has taught us.
