We are proud to say Mr. 2 year old knows all his colors!


Sticking your face in front of the hand dryer is much more exciting than bowling anyway....

Holden's new playset

Although he only uses 3 out of the 6 elements, he REALLY enjoys those 3 things!

Now he just needs to figure out how to glide himself, or find a taller friend...

Perfect Fall Pic!

After much bribing...

we got him into his R2D2 costume!

First Trick-or-treat experience

First attempt- lets go to a neigbor he knows! Across the street we go!!!! After whapping our elderly neighbor with his pumpkin while she tried to give him candy, we quickly retreated back home. We did venture out later with the promise of more candy, and Holden succesfully tricked- and-treated at 3 houses!

Fun for all ages!

Holden had a blast celebrating cousin Lilly's 3rd Birthday- after about 20 minutes of nervous crying/screaming at Monkey Joe's...

Some things never change...

especially when it comes to cake- who has time for manners??

Another thing he didn't get from his mother..

We had to get creative after 7 straight days of rain here in Charlotte. Good thing we have plenty of cushions to make tents and obstacle courses.

No gender stereotypes in this house!

yes, that is a green toe. At least he didn't choose pink...


Found this in your closest, dad! Then I ran all the way down here to show you all by myself!

Boating for the 5th month!!!!

I got these here rocks!

and I throw them in the water, pick them up, and do it all over again. for hours.

"uh-oh poo!"

Holden has been very successful with the potty to his parents excitement! He spends most time at home naked or in "udeez" for greatest success rate, which also makes photo-ops pretty limited.

You're so vain..

One of Holden's favorite things to do is smile for the camera, then run over and look at the image. This makes it very hard to take videos...

Incredible Hulk?

Best buds- summer 2011

It only took 3 weeks for Holden to stop asking to go see "GannyDaisyFooFoo."

Work, work work!

"Mow the lawn, do the dishes, take out the trash- Never ends with these people!"

Finally self-amused!

"So I went to the florist, mom,

and asked the guy what flowers to get to say "Sorry-I- flooded -the- bathroom -through- the- floor- and then- broke- your- favorite -bracelet" and heres what he gave me. Pretty good, right?!?"

The Kids

Happenin, fly, rockstar..all things that come to mind

Finally showing his sweet side to Nana and Papa

Well, at least the big boys nailed this shot

The Beach!

This year, Holden is old enough to actually make protests if he doesn't like something (instead of last summer when we forced him to like things) so we were a little nervous to see his reaction over this so called beach thing...

Jury is still out...

Who me?

This little angel would NEVER keep his parents from updating the blog!! Sorry for the delay (again) but here are some pics of Holden and the new place!

Go Speed Racer, GO!

Can't risk gettin any dirt in my eyes while speeding around Bunky's house!

This is the best we could do.

Eleanor, Lilly, Holden and Britton together at last!

Cousin socialization!

two new cousins!!

And for those of you wondering, Pete is holding Eleanor (Chris and Kelly's 2nd daughter) and Chris is holding Britton (Niki and CJ's first son!) Holden approved of them both with a rating of two thumbs, way up!

Whenever he says the word bubbles, he always yells it out of sheer excitement.


Holdens First Puzzle!

No, no, they aren't supposed to be upwards like that. I am attributing it to his ability to think outside the box

Baby in a Basket

If I'd had known a small basket would make him smile like that, I would have done that eons ago

Sharing?? What good cousins!

Waving Hi to some tigers at the zoo!

Ready for the links, he'll change into his golf shoes when he gets there.
