Aunt "Woggy's" Visit

"Woggy's" here !! Morgan just
had to show McCall her new

Discovery Gateway with Woggy

Morgan had a blast here. She loves balls
so she was in heaven putting them in the
different holes and watching them fall down
the corrugated tubing.

Building a city with McCall

YUMMO!!! Mini's Cupcakes

Munchkin thinks she is being sneeky!

She of course goes for McCall's favorite, the Tiffany

Fireworks on the 25th of July (we were a day late).
We had a way fun BBQ with Tannon's family on the
25th. If only Uncle TaTa could have come too.
(Crappy finals).

McCall's first experience with Morgie
at "Circle". McCall was priceless, she
saw the playground and said "that's
what all the hype is about"? I died
this, is my life. Trying to keep my
borderline albino baby happy and
active, yet out of the sun.

"Woggy's" Visit Continued

"Circle", as in Arctic Circle Morgan loves this place

Swimming with "Woggy"

Playing with a new toy

Flying with "Woggy"

Trying to jump rope with ribbon from a present.
Morgan is obsessed with jumping right now. She
is getting some big air too!

Showing off her new shoes Grandma Nielsen gave her

Her favorite present...

That is until the basket ball hoop came.
Morgan calls it "sacket ball" soooo cute.

Blowing out her candle. Yes,
I was lame this year and didn't
make a fun cake for her. Sorry
Morgie, we were having too much
fun with Aunt Woggy.

At least she still liked it!

We had so much fun with both of our birthdays and the best part was that McCall was here for everything!!! Morgan has the best aunt in the world, and as you can see, she kind-of likes her Aunt "Woggy". She wouldn't leave her sight the whole time she was in town.

Look What's New, Morgie's 2 !

I honestly cannot believe that my little munchkin is 2 years old already!! The years have flown by I tell ya. Morgan is so much fun these days, full of energy and mischief. She loves being outside (she doesn't realize she is borderline albino). We have been swimming a lot as well as playing at the park. Morgan also loves "Circle" (Arctic Circle) that is. Since it has been sooooo HOT lately, that has been her park! Morgie is a little girly-girl these days too. She loves wearing jewelery. Every time I open my jewelery drawer to put on my ring, she has to pull out a necklace or bracelet of some sort to wear. She also loves to wear lip gloss so she can look "pretty". This little girl cracks me up.
Morgan's birthday was a fun one mainly because Aunt "Woggy" was in town for it. Morgan got to go swimming, go to "Circle" for lunch and open presents with Grandma and Grandpa Nielsen and Papa and Nana Morgan. I will be posting pictures of her birthday and McCall's visit soon!

Race to Save Second Base !!

Chris and I joined my friend's team (Trudee's Tribe) for the "Race for the Cure". We ran the 5K last Saturday and had such a good time, and even ran into some friends and family.

My best friend's mother-in-law was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, so Jen put a team together to support her. We wish Trudee the best of luck and we know she is going to beat this disease!!

Angie (Chris' Cousin), Me, Chris
Thanks Val for the fun title (I had to use it)

So last week we took a little vacation to Pittsburgh, PA to see McCall and Tannon. We had such a good time hanging out with them and just being together. We sure packed in as much as we could while we were there. We went to the Children's Museum, the zoo, a great bakery in Oakmont, and of course just had a great time hanging out. I just love being with my sister and I love seeing Morgan and her together. Morgan adores McCall, she even called her "mommy" and wanted absolutely nothing to do with me back in Pittsburgh! Here is a bit of what we did! (Sorry, lots and lots of pics)!

Much to my surprise, Pittsburgh is an awesome place with beautiful views of the city. I couldn't believe how many bridges were there. It's no wonder Pitt is called the "City of Bridges!" These pics were taken on Mt. Washington and the view was breathtaking.

Mt. Washington at night is spectacular!!

Chris, Morgan, Tannon and Cally at the
Pittsburgh Zoo

The Pittsburgh Children's Museum

I had no idea that Mr. Rogers was from Pittsburgh!
And let me tell you, I was a huge fan of his show. It
was so cool cause the whole lower level of the museum
was dedicated to Mr. Rogers and had everything from
his set, but I will just show you a few and not bore
everyone. This is a pic of McCall, Morgan and Me
on the swing from his set.

Here, Chris is performing a puppet
show that Morgan was not interested
in at all!

The museum also had an awesome floor
just full of water that kids could put on
croc shoes and a rain coat and just get
wet!! Morgan was in HEAVEN!!

Morgan playing at the museum

Morgan and Auntie M making silly faces on camera!

Me and Morgan on the fastest slide ever! I was
quite surprised how freakin' fast this thing was
(my face tells all). The thing is only like 15 feet
long, I was afraid that I was going to crash with
my baby! (Luckily I didn't).

St. Patrick's Day

McCall and Tannon were so sweet,
They got Morgie a Leprechaun pinata
for St. Patrick's Day! She loved it.

Chris finally got to go back to Virginia (where he served his LDS mission) and take me to all the sites. We had a great time there, I got to meet one of his converts as well as stay with one of his friends from there. Thanks babe!

I Think I'm In L-O, L-O, L-O, L-O-V-E !!

Since this is Valentine's Day, I decided to post a few pics of my sweet love! (Your welcome Cally)

My Morgie melts my heart!!

Here are some pictures of her and Chris from today!

Valentine Kisses for Daddy

This picture cracks me up! Morgan loves bubbles and she was so happy that she got some today!


More bubbles!! Life can't get better than this!

I love watching these two play together! Morgan is such a Daddy's Girl these days.
Morgie with her Valentine gift
Of course, she likes her new sunglasses best.

Morgan has also had an obsession with sunglasses lately. This current obsession all started when we turned her car seat around to face forward. She noticed that mommy was always wearing sunglasses, so she needed to. I can't believe that she actually keeps them on during the car rides! Now she has a second pair, I mean a girl can never have too many accessories right??!

We hope everyone had a Happy Valentines Day!
