Baby M!

Two weekends ago we hosted a baby shower for Michael, Mia, and Baby Girl M... who will be here in NINE weeks! We are so excited to see her darling little face, and finally have another Scott Girl (it's only been 31 years since the last one was born)!!

Michael and Mia opening their cards and gifts

Getting big hugs after they opening the present from Carson (he picked out a really cute piggy bank and cowgirl boots for his cousin)!

Playing with his BFF Uncle!

And of course, Mommy had to make sure all the bows that Auntie Shell bought for her first niece fit ok... looks good, right?!

We love Auntie Mi Mi and Uncle Michael very much... and we can't wait to see them as parents! xoxo

San Diego

Last month we went to San Diego for 4th of July Weekend. This was the first vacation the 3 of us have been on all by ourselves. We had a blast, and made some wonderful memories!

Carson loved Sea World, we'll definitely have to go back as he gets older!

Watching the Shamu show, we had amazing seats

Carson applauded lots... he loved the shows!

We got to meet Elmo and Cookie... you can tell he loved it! :)

We went to La Jolla for some beach fun. Carson was a little timid in the cold water.

Mommy made him get his feet wet! On the 4th of July we went to Coronado Island where we watched their big parade. It was an awesome day!

We enjoyed a sunset as a family

And Carson hammed it up around Seaport Village!

We had a blast... don't be surprised if this becomes an annual family tradition. 4th of July in San Diego was tons of fun!

Happy Father's Day! And Summer fun!

This morning we took Jeff out to breakfast at Silverstone Golf Club. We were going to hit golf balls on the driving range together after breakfast, but it was too windy. I got this great picture of Jeff and Carson together at breakfast, Carson was saying "cheeeeeeeeessssseeeeeee!"

Here are some pictures of us enjoying our summer - Carson trying out t-ball, night golf, swimming and the last picture is our trip to the circus yesterday!

Carson ready to go "imming!"

We have some great pictures to load from Uncle Michael and Auntie Mia's wedding last week, we will try to Blog about their special day within the week.

Lots more summer fun to be had for now!


The Schnellys

Easter 2011

Sorry for this VERY tardy post. It seems a few motherly tasks take precedence over blogging these days. However, I again promise to try and be better about it...

Here are some pictures from our Cincinnati trip for Easter, yes, Easter that took place two months ago!

The first day we arrived was our only full day of sunshine, and we went to the awesome Cincinnati Zoo with Grandma, Grandpa and Cousin Mia!
The tulips were beautiful in full-bloom!

The second day of our trip we celebrated our niece's baby shower. We didn't have any great pics of the mommy-to-be, Brittany, but here is a cute picture of Carson with his Aunt Tracey and his cousin Mia.

The skies quit dumping on us for about 2 hours, just long enough for an impromptu Easter Egg Hunt in Grandpa's yard!

Carson with his grandparents, too cute!

And here, the cousins got to hit a few putts on Grandpa's putting green. Mia can't wait for Carson to be bigger so they can play golf together!

And the first time (surely there will be MANY more of these pictures as Carson grows up) - riding on Grandpa's tractor!

We always have a great time with The Schnell Family, and we are already looking forward to our next trip for the Labor Day Party! Hopefully, this time we won't get rained out so we can see more of Grandma and Grandpa's friends!

Good times growing up!

Here are a few recent pictures of Carson having good times!

Celebrating Daddy's birthday (that candle is in a yummy cupcake):
At Red Rock Canyon with Charlie and Emma:

Carson's first trip to the snow, he loved it and we are going back next weekend (with better snow clothesso he can play and explore more without getting too wet):

Playing with Daddy:
Here are the "horsies" we saw - next weekend we will go on a ride with them, they will take us on a 30 minute journey around the snowy Mt. Charleston area. Fun!

Carson is saying more words and continuing to amaze us with how much he is learning. Every day is an adventure, and we love introducing him to the many exciting adventures in our own backyard (Las Vegas). More fun to come!

Carson's 2nd Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas in 2010. Below is a small sampling of the 400+ pictures we took to capture the fun we shared! :)

The Schnellys

Carson in his new car that Santa brought him - a total hit!

Family pic - getting ready to open our stockings

Carson loved the stocking goodies, and helped all of us pull our goodies out

Cute little boy after all the gifts had been opened at home.

Next stop - Christmas fun at Grandmama and Grandad's in Modesto, CA
Grandmama and Cousins Dylan and Devan made an awesome Snowman Cake
Matching cousins in their Christmas Jammies :)

Carson was the referee (binkie and all) for his cousins bout on Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots game!
Carson got a step stool (handmade by Grandad) for his bedroom... awesome!

Christmas fun!

Our new traditional - my best friends Melissa and Darcy brought their kids over for some play time fun. Pictured below are Darcy's sons Ryan (6 months), Sean (28 months), Carson (14 months), and Melissa's daughter Elliott (almost 16 months).

Here are the kiddos with their Mommies

And before we headed back to the airport, Carson posed for one great picture with his Scott grandparents!

We had a memorable holiday season and know each year will bring more and more fun for Carson. He continues to grow and learn, and now that he has started walking and talking (a few words), Jeff and I are soaking in all that he can do and cherishing each step as they really go by too fast.

Happy New Year to you, our friends and family!
