Maizie, Tyler and I went sledding yesterday, it was a bit cold but so much fun! Maizie loved it so much and slept so good last night. I told Tyler we will be out there again tonight and every night until the snow melts. If that's all is takes for our girl to sleep then I'm all for it. I'm sure it was just a fluke but I'm willing to try it again! :)

Maizie and I sledding! It really brings the kid out in me!
Maizie speeding down the hill!
Maizie and Tyler just before heading down the big hill!
Look at those red cheeks! I love her snow pants, I know they are a bit boyish, but the girl ones were of course pink and purple and I just couldn't dig that!
Here's a little video footage of Tyler and Maizie sledding. Turn up the volume a bit for some good giggles! It was too funny!

Funny Hat!

I thought these were some cute pictures of our girl running around with a hat that I bought in Florida! You probably won't see me wearing it around here much, I'm pretty sure everyone would make fun of me! But, it was the cheapest hat and for some reason I just love it! :) I think M was hoping that if we got our sun hats out we would magically be back in Florida! I wish it were that easy :)

"No pictures please!"
Cutie pie!
We just love that smile!

Maizie's 1st Ice Cream!

I know some of you may be thinking she's been a little deprived if this was her first ice cream, but we don't really offer little miss many sweet things. Reason being she is sweet enough, but the REAL reason is that she doesn't need any extra energy! :)

Here's a little video of her enjoying her first bites. We were in Florida, I posted a picture previously so you may have already read this but the place was called "Tyler's Homemade Ice Cream" so it seemed fitting that she have her first bite from there!

Florida 2010 continued.....

Here are a few more pictures from our trip. We had such a great time and were so lucky to be able to see the Hewe's family the last few days of our trip. We also got to help Jesse celebrate his 5th Birthday! He is going to have quite the celebration in a few days as he gets to go to Disney World for his Birthday! How lucky is he?? Anywho, lots of great memories from this trip and I know I'm looking forward to some more warm weather vacations in the coming winters! :)
All the kiddos!

Maizie's first bite of ice cream! We thought what better place for her first taste of ice cream to come from than Tyler's Homemade Ice Cream, and I must say it might have been the BEST ice cream I've ever had! :)

Florida 2010!

Last week we took a little family vacation with the French's to Florida! We got some much needed sun and warm temperatures, it was such a nice way to break up this cold winter we've been having! I'd love to say we all got some rest but Miss Maizie went nonstop the entire time as she loved being able to be outside. A few of her favorite things were the pool, the beach, the birds, flying kites and our daily walks.
I got a new camera for Christmas, so I took around 900 pictures on this trip, it was a huge joke by the end of the trip as everyone was getting a little tired of our daily sunset photo ops :) I just couldn't help myself!

Here are a few of my faves of Miss Maizie! I just realized how many pictures I wanted to share as I was uploading so there may be several posts from this trip! :)
M's first site of the ocean! As you can see she immediately wanted to get in the water, she's not afraid of a thing except for cats and small dogs! :) However, we are slowly overcoming both of those fears! I think this picture sums up most of Tyler's days at the beach, trying to keep M out of the water!
Maizie being attacked by water monsters! AKA, her Unlce Adam!
Family sunset photo!
Just a good picture of the girl in the "Surf Shack."
On the beach with her baby doll!
