Coco takes on Disney World!

Josh and I were able to take Colette to Disney World courtesy of a couple of Spokane friends. She had a blast, although her expression was so serious as she was trying to figure out what was going on.

Colette's first stop was to meet Snow White. Coco was shy but has mentioned her often since then.

Colette had been eyeing the flying elephants throughout the day but I wasn't sure if she would be up for going on the ride. She, of course, not only loved it but took over the controls!

And she enjoyed the carousel.

But she loved Pooh the most. We waited 20 minutes to meet Tigger and Pooh. Colette sat on Daddy's shoulders calling, "Pooooh, Poooh!". When it was finally her time to meet him, she walked up to him, gave him a big hug and talked with him like they were old buddies.

After Coco met Pooh and Tigger, we went over to Pooh's house. The first thing she saw was Piglet looking down at her from the top of the tree, and she froze. She stood there for a good 45 seconds staring up at him, oblivious to her surroundings!

After a long day of fun.

Little Man

My little man is getting so big now. He's almost 5 months now and is rolling over and starting his first giggles. Nathan is such a sweet natured boy. His favorite activities are watching his big sister and eating. In fact tonight he had his first bowl of cereal and he eagerly chowed it down and looked at us as if to say, "It's about time!".

Nathan Schroeder was finally born in early June. Even when he was still in me I could tell this precious boy would have a mellow and sweet disposition--even ask Josh! My favorite thing to do from day 1 is to stroke his plump cheeks. So soft! He is such a blessing!

Colette didn't take too long to warm up to him. She was mostly mad at me, and for a good 2 weeks would completely ignore me. In the picture with just her and Nathan, Grandmommy and I had to bribe her with a sticker just to get her to sit next to him!

Lilac Garden

In May we took Colette to the Lilac gardens in Spokane, Washington. She looked beautiful waltzing around the shades of purple.

CoCo's 2nd Birthday

I'm not even going to apologize for neglecting my blog. Between having a baby, moving across country and all the in-betweens, let's say I've been a little behind on stuff. So we pick up on the blog again with the princess' birthday...

A Day In The Park

Climbing up, up, up...

going down, down...

WHEW! That was fun!

Ruff Ruff Where Are You??

Colette lost her "Ruff Ruff" the other day--er, excuse me, Ruff Ruff is visiting Grandpa and Oma. Thank goodness Ruff Ruff has millions of siblings at Ikea. It has been a heartbreaking experience...for Daddy and Mommy...

Colette's 2nd Easter

After church, Colette went about the house searching for Easter eggs. She had more fun finding them than we thought she would. She especially loved throwing them into her Easter basket. Suffice it to say, we had to eat some cracked ones right away. So here, also, is a picture of her eating her Easter egg.

Pixie Girl

Colette's usually draping a little blanket over head, and a purse over her shoulder with boots on her hands and walking proudly around the house. So I decided to try this little Tinker Bell outfit. Perhaps not as creative but look at how cute.

Christmas Pics

Here are the very belated Christmas pictures I've been saying were coming. These pictures are from Christmas Eve after the church service and Colette is dressed up in an outfit I didn't want to ever take her out of. She was infatuated with the tree this year and was very good about not pulling ornaments off. We had a nice family Christmas this year as we started our own traditions.
