Fishie Fishie

Audrey and I went to the aquarium the other day and the whole time I was there I was dying over what a big girl she is now. Here are our pictures from the last time I took her... she was nine(ish) months old.

ps. this is what happened the last time we went in that dang bird cage so we steered clear this time...

And, here are the pics from the other day. Audrey LOVED everything there. I loved the set up too b/c it was so easy for her to run around and check everything out.

Aud was pretty interested in the shark guts...

Audrey was killing me...she didn't like this guy or his piece of whale.

This morning I left team Edward for a couple hours...and jumped right onto team JACOOOOB! OH JACOB!!!! Is he serious?!

The movie was extra fun b/c I went with just a few of my wildest friends!

BIG 2-9

Last week I celebrated my 29th Bday. I had a wonderful bday week. I'm so glad my hub realizes that girls deserve an entire week to celebrate their bday! KT babysat Audrey every single night last week...bless his heart!

Rachel came over and gave me a free color...Audrey REALLY wanted her color done too but she settled for a couple high lights. (foils only)

Kyle has VERY strict gift giving rules. No gift is EVER given before the day of. So, I walked into the living room and it was like Christmas morning!!! I found this bad-boy all set up and ready to go. I didn't ask for it so I was TOTALLY surprised.

Audrey was with me (she drags me out of bed every morning) and she was just as surprised, she had the wrong idea though. She ran to the stroller screaming 'baby!' and peeked inside the sun shade to find no baby. I guess she thought somebody had dropped one off.

I spent the morning having breakfast at my fav spot with some of my fav friends!

Then off to Dland with NO KIDS (Thanks to my wonderful mother in law!) for the day with this fun gal! I pooped out before our night was done so she drove me to Bloomingdale's to finish the bday night off right.

I celebrated with my family later in the week. It was so fun to go out with everybody.

And, so good to see this little guy!

And, these little guys! I'm loving my Rachie's hair dark!

Kyle and I played house with baby Ryan...or Kyle did anyway. Audrey is CRACKING me up in this picture...her face is so washed out but she's def up to no good.

This guy is obsessed with his niece and nephew...he wants to hold them ALL THE TIME.

I enjoyed a super fun night out with the gals to celebrate. We have such a big fun group and I love them all.

Thanks everyone, for making my bday so much fun!

Audrey Lately

Just wanted to share a few things Audrey has been doing lately that make me smile.

Audrey fell in love with these pink boots in front of Grandma Natalie at Target so Grandma couldn't resist. They are worn EVERY DAY...I knew Audrey's boot day would come eventually.

Audrey has also started saying 'cheese' for the camera and posing which is WONDERFUL.

Audrey has started DEMANDING to wear certain items. The demands are a lot stronger when she is tired so bedtime is a lost cause these days. That tank top and flower bow were the demands of this night.

Audrey LOVES to 'pound it out' especially with daddy. She kisses all of her own owies. I don't even know she has been hurt until I see her kissing a body part.

Gone Ape

Audrey and KT were running around acting like monkeys last night. KT was literally swinging from poles and hanging from the ceiling!

The ape went running the second the pictures for the blog started snapping...

Audrey is finally realizing all the fun things her dad is good for.

Goodbye H-Ween

Audrey is taking down her Halloween decor...

And, getting ready for Thanksgiving! I'm teaching her to be festive while she's young.

Thompson Fest

Halloween came and went today. We had so much fun with family and friends. Everyone gathered at our house for dinner and trick or treating. Big thanks to everyone for coming and dressing up.

Here are WAY too many pics of our night...

Somebody (Grandma Bev) gave Audrey a WHOLE cupcake...she enjoyed it very much.

Grandma Natalie wins BEST COSTUME. NOBODY (and we are all immediate family) recognized her. HER OWN MOTHER INTRODUCED HERSELF TO HER!!!!!!

The boys watched the game

Rachel wins cutest makeup award...such a cute kitty.

We got to enjoy our neice AND nephew at the same time. I was in baby-land and it was the sweetest! It's so amazing how much you really love your siblings' children. It makes me so happy that Audrey has these little pals in her life now.
Here is my SIL Julia with baby Ryan (superman)...he had the CUTEST red cape.

And here I am with brand new baby Gwen. This was my first time holding her. She is SUCH a doll and was dressed as a ballerina. Kellie really outdid herself with this ADORABLE costume.

Here are Kasey (pregnant hippie) and JJ (gingerbread man).

My SIL's fam

The complete Larsen Family!

And this adorable UPS man joined us with his family too!

Aud with Grandma...once she figured out she was Grandma.

Our trick or treat crew
Audrey and Nickolas were our only trick or treaters at the party...
They would get so confused when someone wouldn't answer
It was a really cute and fun night. Goodbye Halloween 2009!

Now it's time to take down these decorations before someone gets hurt!
