Birthday Girl!

Aubriana just turned 2 today! We started off the day singing the birthday song, and she was eating it up. All this attention is great!

I can't believe how much she is rapidly changing. She says very funny things all the time, and is genuinely sweet when she wants to be. Tim has called her "bumble bee" ever since she was in my belly, and now when he calls her bumble bee, she quickly corrects him and says, "I'm Aubriana." She has moved on from calling us mommy and daddy to mom and dad. I didn't think that happened until she became a teenager :(. One other thing she says that really makes me laugh is when she is being really silly she follows me around giggling and saying, "I'm funny mommy, Aubriana's funny!"

She really makes us happy and we are so blessed to have her sweet spirit in our home. We love you, Aubriana!

Mom & Dad :)

I'll post more pictures of her birthday tomorrow after she has her cute cake. I had to post a couple of pictures I took of her this morning. They were too cute!

This post may seem silly, what can I say...

Ok, as a Dyson vacuum owner, I'm already a huge fan of their product and think the inventor is a pure genius. I'm an even bigger fan now that I've tried the Dyson hand dryer.

I'm not one to use public bathrooms but my hubby and I were out of town this past weekend in Kennewick, WA, hanging out for some us time, and I was left with no choice. I was ok with it because it was a Costco bathroom. Another huge bonus to Costco for investing in the Dyson dryer in their bathrooms. Costco rocks! :)

Have you used one of these Dyson hand dryers?!!! AMAZING! My hands were dry in seconds. Those other hand dryers are a big pet peeve. I never even bother and just wipe hands on pants if there are no paper towels handy. How do we get more of these in public restrooms??? When I was leaving the bathroom, I was overhearing some teenagers telling their friend they had to go in the bathroom and try the dryer. I wish I could afford one in my bathroom.

Ok. I'm done raving about this product. I'm going outside now. :)

Our Little Monster...

First off, I have to say I was a bit nervous for Halloween this year. I bought Aubriana's costume a month in advance and since then I haven't been able to get her to keep it on for more than 2 seconds. She'd rip it right off. So, we decided to start by coaxing her. Her daddy was more than willing to help, and even did a little monster growling to show her how.

After her dadda so graciously showed her how it was done, she was more than willing to wear her costume... whew! She even did a few growls and showed her monster teeth.

Halloween was fun this year. There was a bit of a wind storm all day, but thank goodness Aubri's costume was warm. We went to our ward trunk or treat and Aubriana's cousin Madeline took her around to each trunk for candy. She waved at people and charmed them for lots of suckers. They even served hot dogs and hot chocolate. It was a lot of fun.

She loves to share her suckers...

Aubri and her little buddy Briley occupied themselves running up the hill and back down and crashing at the bottom. It was pretty funny. They would check on eachother after they fell down.
