Nick Jr claims to have zero commercials, but they lured Brennan into begging to make Dora the Explorer cupcakes. He has seen this craft demonstrated about 100 times (possibly more) and for the last three weeks makes me come, watch, and learn everytime they show it. So I finally got all of the ingredients and made my attempt at these cupcakes. So here you go!
Here are the chefs! Sorry not the best, but it's all I've got!
It's fun to look back at Brennan's birthdays and see how much he has grown and changed! Thank you Lord for our son! He has brought so much joy and laughter to our family. I can't imagine life without his energy and silliness. He keeps us on our toes and loves to laugh. His favorite thing in the world is to play football with daddy. Poor Steven walks in the door every night to Brennan saying, "Let's go play football daddy." That's before he even says hello. I am thankful for the break, but Steven doesn't get one. Brennan is a sponge for information. He asks so many questions and thinks he's three going on thirty. We love you Brennan! We hope to celebrate many more birthdays with you!
Steven and I took Brennan on his birthday to the Lazy 5 Ranch. It was super cool! We got to feed tons of exotic animals and enjoy a beautiful fall day outside. Haven played with Mimi and Poppi so we could just spend the day with the birthday boy!
Llama, Llama, red pajama!
Instead of a sand box they had a sand box filled with corn! Brennan loved it! He was not happy when we told him it was time to get out.
Brennan is three! We took our annual trip to Monkey Joes and then celebrated with pizza and cake at our house! Brennan loved celebrating with his grandparents, aunts and uncle's and cousins. I can't believe how fast three years can go by although I've felt like Brennan has been three for quite some time. He is growing like a weed...we don't go for his three year check up until December, but I'm sure he's grown at least four inches this year. He could not wear one pair of pants from last winter. Thank God for Mimi! Clothes are expensive! She rounds out his wardrobe very nicely. We aren't getting hand me downs anymore, ahhh! If anyone wants to send any 3T's this way, feel free.
Grandmom and Pop Pop gave Brennan this huge Tiger. He is going to be the closest thing Brennan gets to a pet for a LONG time. Enjoy it now son!
Brennan got a cool bike from Mimi and Poppi, but Haven really thinks it is for her.
Steven, Haven and I brought doughnuts to Brennan's class. Haven wishes she could stay and play too!
Okay, I tried to tell her to wait until she turned one, but she didn't listen to me. Haven took her first steps this weekend while with her Mimi! She is a week behind her brother, he took his first steps at 9 1/2 months. She will be ten months on Saturday. Where did my sweet baby go? This little girl has grown a mind of her own. She can definitely let you know if she wants something or doesn't like something. She has a girly squeal and scream. Whew, I think Steven and I are going to be in trouble. She's still sweet and likes to cuddle, but has been trying to fight her first and hopefully last ear infection for the past few weeks. I'll post more pics soon of Haven walking and Brennan's 3rd birthday, but I wanted to make sure I wrote down the first steps somewhere!
