Catching Up Part 2 - Baking Cookies

Fischer got to experience baking and decorating Christmas cookies for the first time...here's some pics:

"Rolling the cookies" as he calls it.


The first cut...




His first batch going into the oven...

Decorating with "strinkles"


His first cookie!


Taste-testing :)


More strinkles!


We realized after a few minutes that he was putting sprinkles on the cookie, licking them off, putting more on, licking them off, etc...


Finished products (mommy did the candy cane)...

Catching Up Part 1 - Fischer's 3rd Birthday & Party

Fischer turned 3 years old on December 21st...and we had his party the next day on the 22nd. Nana, Papa, and Auntie were able to come because they had flown in for Christmas. Here are some pics from the two days:

Fischer opening presents from Nana, Papa, and Auntie on his actual birthday:





Monster trucks are still his favorite! We watch Monster Jam on TV, he watches clips of monster trucks set to music on YouTube, and he plays Monster Jam with his toys constantly! I never imagined I would know so much about monster trucks, and it's only the beginning!


Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!


The monster trucks had to roll through Bethlehem.


Owen was thrilled with it all, as usual :)


Fischer's new monster bathtub toys (his bathroom is decorated with these same monsters from Target...now they have toys to match!).


The monster face behind him has interchangeable features.


Here's Fischer dressed for his Toy Story party the next day!
Having a swingin' good time with his best buddies, Rylee and Corban.




What a beauty! (I think Fischer has a little crush...he follows Rylee around and does whatever she tells him to do!)


Yes, mommy actually wrapped this present :)


A new scooter!


Opening more presents!


I do not make my own birthday cakes...I find that it's much easier to buy them, especially when you have a 4-week-old baby around.


He finally was old enough to blow out his own candle!
Party Pals!


Birthday cake is still Fischer's favorite part of anyone's party! (at least he uses a fork now!)

Silly faces with Auntie.
This is the best shot we could get of him dressing up in his new Woody costume...he immediately took it all off.


To infinity...and beyond!


And what would be a party without singing Happy Birthday? Fischer knows he's the center of attention, and loves it as usual!
