Memorial Day...

Memorial Day was pretty low key at the Tadtman House. We were thankful for that after a busy week. Justin actually had to work all day so the kids and I decided to hit the park mid-day. Unfortunately it was pretty cool out so our stay was limited but we did have a great time while we were there. Is there anything better than a three day weekend?

Happy Birthday Justin...

As I previously mentioned Justin recently celebrate his 30th birthday. We had a party for him the weekend before his birthday so his actual birthday was pretty low key. We all went to dinner then back to the house for gifts, and cold stone cup cakes. Like I said we didn't have a whole lot going on but are happy that daddy had a great day and we were able to spend it with him!

Why is it SO hard to get a picture of the kids together! Gesh!

Again maybe someday they will take good pictures!

I LOVE this picture of my boys!

The flash light was WAY more interesting than me taking a picture!

Helping dad open his gifts!

Happy birthday Justin. Hope your day was beyon perfect. We love you SO much!

Crazy Hair...

I don't know where she gets it from but my poor little girl's hair is the worst ever! I try it may not look like it but I try to make it look presentable and I fail miserably every time. I have NO idea what to do with it and the worst part is it hasn't always been that bad!
This was on Christmas morning and 2009 and she had just woken up but look at it. It still looks pretty good.

Or her Christmas picture from 2009 is pretty good. It's very soft and curly...not how it is anymore.

Or here is is this past fall. On a good hair day it use to be manageable.

But now it's just out of control! I know someday she is going to hate me and tell me that I never tried to style her hair. However that is FAR from the truth. I spend so much time on it only to have it look awful every day (or pretty close to that). I figure I better document that I agree that It is not the best now so that when she says I probably liked her hair like that in a few years I can tell her that is definitely not the case!
On this day it was particularly flat....

I don't even know what to call this. I think it is going at least 85412841 different directions.

Same here it is shorter than the other one (somehow without a hair cut in between the two pictures) but still going tons of different directions!

Here it is to pouffe for words. It just can't ever lay flat and be glad these are all front shots as the back is WAY worse!

Then here recently we are back to it being flat without a lot of body!

So my darling girl when you are ten and hate me for never brushing your hair when you were little please know that is NOT the case. I promise I try you however were not blessed with a good head of hair. However you are blessed in SO many other areas that I think we can probably learn to live with the bad hair!

Happy Birthday Grandma Karen...

This past week we were lucky enough to celebrate Grandma Karen's birthday with her! It was a pretty simple evening but everyone enjoyed themselves!
Here is grandma opening her new "Grandma's ring". It has every grandchild's birthstone in it including the one's that will be born this summer, and fall. She LOVED it (sorry I'm not sure why the pictures turned out blurry).

The kids really enjoyed looking at it with her.

Why is it always impossible to get a good picture of both kids? I LOVE this picture of him. He is getting SO big and I am so proud to call him mine!
I think this is a great picture of Justin and Aubrey. I love it when they talk to each other, and apparently they had lots to talk about!
Aubrey and Grandma Karen.
All the kids helped Grandma blow out her candles. Aubrey went first since she was the littlest.


Finally Bricen got his turn!

The cake was great and Mya loved the ice cream. It was the first time she had really had it and she had seconds! We hope Grandma had a wonderful day. We are so lucky to have such good grandparents for our perfect children and hope they all know how much we appreciate everything they do for us!

Hot Hot Hot...

It has FINALLY been HOT out this week! So hot that we had to break out the water bottles for some outdoor play time! It's amazing how much more water you can get them to drink when it is in a water bottle instead of a cup. I'm just thankful for warmer weather and outdoor play time!

Justin's 30th...

Justin celebrated his 30th birthday party this past weekend and we had a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family. We are so lucky to have so many wonderful people in our lives. We went to Shot Stop a little bar in Aggieville, and ate and drank with friends. The intention was for this to be a surprise party but things were crazy busy and therefore he did find out a few weeks before. We plan on celebrating at home this weekend with the kids.
Drinking a beer waiting for more guests to arrive!

Missing the birthday boy but still a good picture!

Justin's brother Greg, and his mom.

I'm not sure how Justin got out of taking this shot!

Opening a gift!

Thanks again to everyone who came to help us celebrate!
