Happy Oktoberfest! We were clean - dressed nicely - so I took some pictures! Lucy is such a character...

Check out the old men. Taco and Brewski are getting older!!!

Heidi finally decided to join in on the picture fun!

On to the festival! It was a beautiful day yesterday and perfect for Oktoberfest! It felt like fall! We got there early enough to snag good seats and it allowed the kids to dance before things got too crazy!

 Lucy enjoying her Schnitzel dinner while clapping with the polka!

The traffic started to pick up - the kids still had a blast. Heidi did not leave that dance floor except for a couple of playground trips and Lucy was hamming it up for everyone.

We all had a really good time. We ended the night with some friends over and a nice fire pit. I was wearing a sweatshirt and jeans in the middle of August! I love it!

Heidi starts school this week!

Two Year Old Stats

Lucy did great at her doctors appointment!

She is coming in at:

25 pounds

32 3/4 tall

Which puts her right under the 30%.

Everyone is happy to see her growing and growing proportionally.

Happy Birthday Lucy!

We had a fun-filled weekend and our little spunky Lucy is officially 2!!! I managed to get her to wear her birthday shirt and a tutu! hehe.

When Lucy was sleeping - Heidi and some neighbors kiddos helped prepare Lucy's presents.

When Lucy woke up from her nap - she wasn't thrilled to be up but once she realized there were presents - she perked up!


She boycotted the bow and tutu half way through presents...

After lunch we headed to our local corn festival - very similar to Millard Days in Omaha. It was very hot and we didn't last long but it was still fun! Only Heidi rode rides. Lucy was too little.

 Back to home for cake aka whip cream time!

Then it was Lucy's first time for a fire and smores!!!

Everyone woke up happy and wanting to wear matching dresses - Lucy's is slightly too big but it didn't phase her. Chris got them from his trip to California!

Breakfast together - for the record I fed them eggs, bacon and hash browns - I go upstairs and daddy feeds them powdered doughnuts. Nice.

It was a great weekend - the kids had a good time! This week we have Lucy's 2 year old check up at the doctors  - we will see just how big she has grown!
