McKay is 3 years old!! Yahoo! McKay is a new boy these days! He is full of excitement and soaking up everything we tell him.
We celebrated the day before his birthday by going to Six Flags! It was a blast as usual! McKay loved going on the Log Ride with Dad, that is their thing.
McKay and Daddy roasting marshmallows. Every time we looked over at McKay, he was grabbing a great big marshmallow and stuffing it in his mouth! Crazy boy!
I had to take this picture, because I have a picture of me as a baby almost identical to this one. I think it might have been the same tent - maybe - maybe not. Anyways, our Lucy girl is so precious! She is moving everywhere now. She crawls, pulls up on everything, and cruises! She is trying so hard to catch up with big brother and sister.
Lucy loved the Carousel. She waved most of the time like she is Miss America. She loved when Brennley or McKay would turn around and wave at her.
McKay's birthday was on Sunday and we had Stake Conference, which was nice because we got to go to church earlier than usual. So, we had so much focus on Halloween and Brenn's birthday, that McKay did not believe us when we told him it was his birthday. He would say, "No, it's Brenney's birthday." So, after we finally convinced him, he kept saying, "It's MY birthday, I'm the birthday boy! I have a BATMAN cake!" It was so fun.
Here is Dad's Batman cake creation! McKay picked out the sprinkles.
Sweet, Snuggly McKay! I love you so much son! You have taught me so much more than I ever expected. As a baby, you didn't sleep well, so you helped me realize that life goes on, with or without sleep, so buck up and get use to it. You can be the sweetest snuggler and the roughest angry boy. You are learning more about communication and consequences now. One time, you said something you shouldn't have said and you quickly corrected yourself, "Oh no, we no say that. Sorry mom." You are more aware of people's feelings now. You notice when mom is upset. One time, you threw a huge fit and mom was sad so she did not say much. You came to me and said, "Mom, are you happy? I need to give you a hug. I need to give you a kiss." You love tractors, trains, the trash man, fire trucks, and police cars. But, you still get a little nervous if we get too close. You have recently started asking mom to scratch your back at night and I love it. It is very tender.
You are BATMAN! You base jump and try to fly all over the house. You are brave and want to help people. I asked you to get Lucy's jammies upstairs and you told me that Batman is brave and so you can do it.
Happy Birthday McKay!
Black frosting - so messy!
Brennley bought McKay and her matching nerf guns and they have been the highlight of the weekend! It is so fun, as long as we can find all of the bullets. We have had a super fun Halloween, birthday, birthday, party weekend together as a family. We feel so blessed to have such a fun family. We are so thankful for our health and happiness. The joy we experience in our family is the best thing in all the world!
