Family Night for the Biddulph clan

So we haven't been the best at Family night, but we are getting better.

We talked about how Jesus is our brother and that He loves us and we love him. The kids saw his picture on the wall and smiled and giggled(like usual when they see pics of Jesus)

We changed into swim suits and took off for a fun swimming trip. We sang primary songs on the way to the pool. It had been a little windy and rainy today so the pool was a little cool but we still had a blast! Lucy is such a super swimmer. She doesn't want us to hold onto her. So in her floaties and swimsuit tube thingy she takes off all by herself:) Peter got to play with arm floaties and a red lady bug floaty:) I wish I had taken pictures of that.

After we played tons in the big pool and baby pool we got out to dry off, of course I forgot clothes for Lucy to change into but that didn't matter because she didn't even want the towel, she just wanted to run naked.-we did find a shirt of Peter's in the car for her:)

We stopped at Yogurtland for Family Night treats.
Lucy ate her's in the car, we finished at home:)

Lucy liked her's too much that she needed every last drop!

Then bath time and then BED:)
YAY! Success! We had a great family night:)

Dr. Suess was wise!!!

I LOVE this quote! It should have been my motto long ago!

Lucy's Birthday...Finally(April 19, 2011)

Lucy turned 2 on April 19.
Yes, It is July and I am finally blogging about it:) I have several posts I am behind on, and for journaling sake I want to catch up, so here I go:)

That week was crazy for medical stuff for Peter, but we still managed to have lots of fun with Lucy. She did turn 2 afterall:)

So after Peter and I came home to nap after his sleep study, we woke up, showered and started up north to share cupcakes with Lucy's cousins in Westminster. We had lots of fun to choose cupcakes from Target. Then we shopped at Costco and picked up a new blender(our's broke)-we will pretend it was a birthday present for Lucy if she ever asks:)

Then we went to celebrate and eat at BJ's Restaurant. YUM! That was my 3rd or 4th time and I still love it! We had lots of yummy food, starting with avocado egg rolls, Evan had a yummy loaded baked potato and sides, I had a YUMMY chinese chicken salad, Lucy and Peter shared a grilled cheese Sandwich and smiley face fries. Then we also ordered Lucy creamy avocado and chopped avocados, her FAVORITE, her own food group!!!

Lucy LOVED her free hot cookie and ice cream-and part of a candle:)

We got home and heard singing messages from Grandma Liz and Grandpa Steve and loved the card they sent(my mom makes her own cards and sells them).

Then we were able to gmail video chat with Grandma Betty and Grandpa Romney. They sand to her, watched her blow out her candle and not want to eat cake. Lucy is very particular about the sweets she eats. Definitely good on her part:) She opened our non-wrapped gift- a musical dog! Lucy still loves it, and doesn't want to part from it:)

It was a great day. She does so much and is turning into more of a little angel. She brightens our lives and makes us feel so blessed on a daily basis, even when she tests our patience:)

Lucy Loves to Love on Peter. She says his name so cutely! She cuddles him, tickles him, kisses and hugs on him. She pets his head and plays with his hair.

She loves playing with her baby dolls and feeding them bottles and kissing them.

Lucy loves getting up on her chair and eating food. Sometimes when she is hungry I find her waiting at the table for food:) She does not like sitting on a booster seat.

Lucy loves getting in the car and going places. When we play outside sometimes she will go wait next to her door for me to open it, so we take lots of quick trips around the block:)

Lucy loves the outside!!!! If she could bath, sleep, eat, play, work, everything outside, she would be a happy camper.

She hops, jumps, and runs everywhere! She holds her hands in the air sometimes while traveling across the house:)

She laughs ALL the time, less crying lately, that is a plus.

She has figured out how to open her door by sitting next to the door, sticks her fingers under the door, jiggles it 2-3 times and pops the door open. BRILLIANT

Jumping and hopping down the stairs makes us nervous but she loves doing it! Today at nursery I was told she climbs up on everything and jumps off, makes them very nervous!

Lucy has so much good about her, for now we are just loving and enjoying her. One day we will get to fill her in on how crazy, beautiful, funny, smart, loving and inventive she is.

I can't get enough of her. Sometimes I just want to wake her up so we can play:)
