Merrick's 2nd Birthday

We had a little birthday party for Merrick in Carp with all our family and here he is biting into his cake. Sean taught him how to do this when we made a Gingerbread House back in December and now it's Merrick's favorite thing to do with things that are edible.

Too adorable. His favorite part was the singing and the candle. He really liked blowing it out. I have to say 2 is definitely one of my favorite ages. He's only been 2 for like 3 days but he cracks me up everyday.

One of our cousins works at Baskin-Robins so he got Merrick a Thomas the Train ice cream cake that Merrick really, really liked.

Really liked!

Here we are, just the three of us. In another 8 weeks we'll be kissing our table for 3 family good-bye and saying hello to The 4 Fighting Irish. Yikes!

Let's try this one more time

Yeahhh, it worked! Here's Merrick modeling one of his birthday presents from Grandma Hewitt. He's looking in the mirror at himself and he's totally loving the Thomas outfit.

Merrick with uncle Dustin. They were so cute together.

One of our many sunny afternoons when we went home to Carpinteria for Christmas break. During Sean's winter break we went back to Carpinteria so that he could work for his dad and make some money. We got to hang out with all of our family and enjoy the nice weather Carp had to offer. Here's Merrick playing in the sand at the Beach Grill at Padaro.

I would be a much better blogger if my computer would just cooperate with me. I think I have the worst internet service on the planet. I've been trying to post pictures for the last 2 days and the darn thing keeps losing connection. Sorry for the delay and I'll keep you posted. Grrrrr

Merrick's 2nd Birthday

Happy Birthday Merrick!!!
We love you!!!

We're back

We have been gone for a real long time but we're back now and we're ready to put up pictures of all of our adventures these past few months. At some point I will post some really fun "where did we go" kind of stuff but right now I just want to ease back into home life one step at a time.
