3 going on 30

My little girl turned 3 on April 23rd! I can't believe it, she is such a big girl now! It was so much fun celebrating her birthday this year. Robert and I took her to see How to Train Your Dragon. After about 15 minutes Addi said "OK I am ready to go now!" But we made her stay for the whole thing, it was just so good, Robert and I didn't want to leave. Then we took her to Chuck e cheese for dinner and she had so much fun playing all the games. The next day we went swimming at Clearfield Aquatic Center with some family, it was a blast!!

Like father, like daugher

I LOVE Roberts face in this picture! Isn't her cake just beautiful, it took me forever to make it, but i think it turned out pretty good!

We had to call this the "Princess Slide" so Addi would go down it, after she went once that is all she wanted to do the rest of the day!!!

Camdyn's first time at the pool and she LOVED IT!!

Don't hate us, but we just spent 8 days on beautiful, sunny Hawaii! We went to Oahu and Maui. It was amazing, i can't wait to go back!! We went down with Tina's family. Here are some pics to highlight our trip.

Arriving at the Oahu airport.
Eating at Hula Grill.

The Dole Plantation. We had Pineapple ice cream with fresh pineapple chunks and coconut...oh my goodness YUMMY!!

I am a huge Lost fan, and i couldn't go to Oahu without visiting some of the sites where it is filmed. The first pic is of their beach camp, they were ending filming the next day so most of it had been taken down. And the second pic is of Mr. Echo's Church that he built on the Island. So cool, i was like a little kid at Disneyland.

The Temple in Oahu

Visiting the PCC

Hawaii has the craziest trees!

Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay

A trip wouldn't be complete without going to Senor Frogs

Pearl Harbor

Lahaina, Maui

View out of our resort on Maui

Another crazy tree

Robert and I did the road to Hana. It was so beautiful. At the end you come to a black sand beach...i can't even tell you how amazing it looked, the pictures don't even do it justice.

March & April Update

The last couple of months haven't been too busy. Robert finished his last rotation at the end of March, so now we are just waiting for him to graduate the beginning of June. :) Other than that nothing too big is happening. Here is just a little of what has been going on....

Our goal this year is to go to a new temple each month that we have never been to before. So in March we went to the SLC temple with the Pollards. We really enjoyed it and are excited to go back soon.

This is what Addi looks like every time i get her up from her naps. She likes to play dress up with what ever she can find...

So Addi's new activity she likes to do is play beauty salon, and she LOVES to play it with her dad, So cute!!!

All dressed up in her St. Patty's day green

About to go on a Easter egg hunt. This is the only pic of have of her with her new hair cut, i will post a better one soon.

I finally gave up and let my sister cut Camdyn's hair at 4 months. She was sporting a little baby mullet.

My little Easter Bunny!

Even after her hair cut i can still put her hair in pigtails

Jan. & Feb. 2010

Here is just a little update of what has been going on in the exciting lives of the Hoxsie family. For the first couple of Weeks in Feb. Robert did the "14 days of valentines" for me. And let me just say he went way beyond the call of duty and did the sweetest things for me. Here are a few of the things that he did: A surprise FHE which included the Bountiful Temple, Nelson's Frozen Custard, and Arctic Circle. ( Addi LOVED this surprise) He sent me Flowers. Took me to Logan to do a session in the temple and then out to lunch. A movie night, complete with treats. And much much more. I have such an amazing husband!! I am a lucky girl!!

Robert had a job interview in Chadron, NE and so Camdyn and I decided to go with him. This place was in the middle of nowhere. I wish i had more pictures to show you of our trip, but this was the only thing worth taking a picture of..( we took more pictures of us on the airplane). We kinda knew we weren't going to move there when we found out the whole town pretty much shuts down at 7:30 at night. Everyone there was so nice to us, but needless to say, Robert turned down the job.

Just to show you how small this place was, this is the airport we flew into.

Camdyn Update:

Camdyn at 2 months and starting to smile.

At 3 months she has her smiles down and is just the happiest baby!
I can't get enough of her!!!

My little butter ball at 3 months.

Addi Update:

Addi is going to be 3 next month and she is an emotional roller coaster!! One minute she is just the funnest girl to be around and makes you laugh. And the next she is crying because you forgot to put "the red stuff" (jam) on her toast. But I can't complain because over the past couple of months she has pretty much potty trained herself! :) And let me tell you that puts a big smile on our faces!!
This is how she likes to watch movies, with all her "friends" as she calls them.

Addi and Cade built a snowman and of course named him Frosty. They kept waiting for him to come alive and say "Happy Birthday". It was pretty traumatic for them when they woke up from their naps that same day to find frosty had melted and all that was left was a pile of rocks, a hat and scarf. It was all they could talk about for the next couple of days.

Addi's new favorite game to play is hide-n-seek with her dad. When is is her time to hide she usually runs into our room and throws herself on the middle of the floor face down, covering her eyes. I love how little kids think, if i can't see you then you can't see me. So i was helping her hide, and we found this great spot in the dryer. Robert would have never found her, but as soon as he walked past the dryer Addi yelled "Dad I'm over here."

The other night Addi was in the bathroom, and had been in there for a few minutes when Robert went in to check on her to find this:

She had gotten into my makeup. The best part was she was so excited to show me what she had done that she ran into the family room and said "Look I'm a mom like you!" I mean how can you be mad after that.
