So...what have the Pearces been up to? Well, I know you're on the edge of your seat. Our lives are just that exciting!! Well, here's a run down...

Marty: What can I say? He's a hard working man. Marty's been busy with the fire department and inspections. These past few days have been filled with "mommy duties." I had my wisdom teeth taken out on Friday and my sweet husband has taken over as care giver and home maker. He's done a great job! The kids are happy, the pantry is well stocked, the house is in order and I'm still in one piece :)

Lauren: As I mentioned, my wisdom teeth came out on Friday. This was very last minute and not at all planned. I was suppose to have had them removed 6 years ago but....I'm a huge chicken and put it off until it was absolutely necessary. Wednesday night, when half of my tooth decayed right into my hand, I figured it was absolutely necessary! Thankfully, the oral surgeon had one spot open Friday morning and graciously scheduled me at the last minute. I have to say that it wasn't nearly as bad as I had anticipated and I even enjoyed getting to spend the day all doped up in the bed :)

Hudson: Little man has spent his days dreaming guessed it....dirt bikes!! We're beginning to wonder if this "phase" is really a phase at all. We're thinking he truly loves dirt bikes! Every now and then we'll take him to the Kawasaki dealership on Highway 70 and let him drool over the bikes. He's made the salesman, Dwayne, into his new best buddy. Dwayne always lets him sit on the "little dirt bike" and even gave him a catalog that he insists we read to him every night before bed. Yes, we read him a motocross catalog as his bed time story. Here's a picture of him on this beloved "DR Z70." He's informed us that he wants this for Christmas. Not too much to ask for right?

Miss Addi girl spends her days playing Mommy. She is loving her baby dolls. She picks them up, slings them into her stroller, drags them around by their arms and just loves on them. I made her a little sling and she thought she was hot stuff. She is beginning to exert her independance more and more and has a little "Addi-tude" when things don't go her way. She went for her 1 year check up and weighed in at 20 1/2 lbs and measured 28". That puts her in the 45 percentile for height and 50th for length. Hudson was always in the upper percentils (no less than 65th) so our little girl is quite the peanut compared to her brother. Here she is with her baby.

Birthday Pictures

I'm finally getting around to posting pics from Addison's birthday party last week. We had a great, low key time with our families. Addison stole the show in her birthday tutu. She was adorable! I had to stop myself from squeezing her!! It was a fabulous first birthday :)

The birthday girl showing off.

So sweet!

A little too much birthday.

Four generations of fabulous females :)

Sitting in her pile of presents.

How cute is that cake? Lowes Food people!

The best shot I have of her whole outfit.

Love this!

How could you not want to squeeze that sweet girl?

We have a hard time getting family pics :)

Hudson's First Day of Preschool

My little boy turned into a preschooler yesterday, right before my sappy, sentimental eyes! He had a great first day and walked right in like he owned the place. I didn't get much out of him about his first day other than he ate a cupcake with Diego on it. Here are a few pics....

Walking in with Daddy.

Hanging up his book bag in his cubby.

Posing with his best buddy, Lilly.

A quick family shot then off he went!

That's Not Good!

This morning, I was cleaning out our family junk drawer. You know, the one drawer in the kitchen that's kinda like Mary Poppin's bag. Anything imaginable can be found inside one of these. Anyways, Hudson was digging through with me and I thought he would be excited to find "kid stuff" like stickers, cars, birthday candles, a Lightning McQueen picture frames. But oh no...Hudson was beyond thrilled to find "monies." Actually it was just a bunch of loose change, mostly pennies. He would spot one, shout "monies," and then his little money loving hands would grad them up faster than I could say "greed." What was worse, is what I overheard him saying as he was studying the nice little pile he created for himself. It went something like this...."Look at all my monies! I have lots of monies! I love monies! Where is some more monies?!?! " Oh my! Now what is that verse in the Bible? Something about loving money.....root of all evil....Hmm, not good.

Addison: One Year

Happy first birthday Addison! Wow! Has it been a year? Time flies when you spend your days playing with and loving on the sweetest little lady in the world. Our little girl is one spunky toddler (did I just say toddler). She is a full out walker, climber and brother imitator. She can say mama, dada, ah- oh, and her all time favorite "hay" and "hi." She love to throw up her hand and say "hay" to whoever walks into the room. It's so cute. She weigh in at 21 lbs and is just fitting into size 12 month clothes. Her favorite foods are peas and blueberries and her favorite toy is anything Hudson is playing with :) Her sleeping habits change on a daily basis but she is sleeping through the night but waking up early (6:00'ish) and she is done nursing (yay!!) Oh how I love this little girl. What a fun year it's been. And now for a walk down memory lane....
