St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from the Atwoods!

This is the only day Liv is able to claim..."Pinch Proof." Every other day, I can't help but pinch those cute little cheeks of hers:) (thanks Linds for the cute T-shirt!)

I also thought I would post some updates....

Ryker, also known as: Batman, Superman, Spiderman, a dragon, a dinosaur, and many many more characters, is excited to turn 6 next month (crazy!) He recently dressed up as "The Man With The Yellow Hat" from Curious George for favorite book character day at school (pictured above). He is constantly drawing and has become an amazing artist taking after his grandpa Williams and Uncle Mike. He is growing like a weed, and eating us out of house and home:) He is taking off with reading and makes sure to get his 20 minutes of reading in every night. Still my great helper and amazing oldest brother!

Bridger is talking so good lately and is constantly cracking us up with the things that come out of his mouth, some examples are: "what the Heck! it snowed again today!!" and "I got hit right in the tenders!" He is also known as Buzz, Woody, puppy dog, dad, and Robot Helper (the only way I get him to clean his toys is if we pretend he is a Robot helper:) He has also been known to wear a pair of goggles he found in the closet all day long because he thought they were his glasses (pictured above). He is still mischievous, but always with the cutest smile so it is hard to get after him. He is also becoming a great helper!

Liv, also known as Livie Pie, sis, baby cakes, etc... is such a happy, easy going baby! Almost 10 months old, she loves to clap, wave, say da da, ma ma, and sometimes Uh Oh. She adores her older brothers, and loves when they include her in playtime. Her favorite pastime is eating real food, especially spaghetti (pictured above) and she gets as messy as possible because she knows it will mean she gets to have her 2nd favorite pastime ...bathtime!(pictured below) She is the princess of the family, and still loves cuddling her mommy which I don't mind one bit. :)

Liv...7 months old!

It is crazy how grown up Liv is getting...WAY too fast! We just can't get enough of this little girly, she has us all wrapped around those cute little chubby fingers of hers. :) I love this age sooo much, I wish I could just freeze time for a couple of months. She is such a happy easy going little girl, and she always has a smile on her face. She has 4 teeth...kind of early but I love her little teethy grin! I tried to upload a video of her bouncing in her jumper but it didn't work so just go HERE to see it:)

Some pictures of her sitting up so big..

Bridger has sure come a long way with Liv these past couple of months, and I am so proud of him! He really had a hard time adjusting to the new baby and he wasnt very nice to her at times. Now he plays with her, gives her toys, makes her giggle, etc... Such a good big brother with such a big heart!
Ryker just adores this little one and treats her like a princess, always checking up on her. He is such a great brother too.

We sure love you Liv, how couldn't you love a cute little face like this?!

More Christmas Break...

We had some visitors over Christmas break, the Freckletons who live in Washington, and the Kelleys who live in Vegas. It was so good to get together with them again! It is always so much fun whenever we see them!

The guys...

The kids (Liv was already in bed). That little Claire is such a cutie, her and Bridger are only a couple of weeks apart in age.
The girls....blurry picture:)
I love it when we get together with our good friends we made while living in Rexburg.
But we miss them so much when they leave again!

I also wanted to post a couple of pictures of some Christmas gifts I made.

A quilt for mom and dad Atwood...

And I also made some aprons for my cute little nieces.
I am so enjoying the new sewing machine Shawn gave me! LOVE IT!!!
