last weekend

I got to spend the majority of last weekend protecting the Jensen Hoard while their parents went out of town. It was so much fun. Here are a few pictures of how we spent the weekend together.

We watched a lot of movies and snuggled here and there. LOVE it when I get some cuddling time in.

We ate LOADS or Otter Pops...

And I mean LOADS!

We went to the boys soccer game...where Aiden scored 1 of the two goals for his team. I was a very proud aunt watching my 3 nephews play.

Oakley and I had a little photo shoot/funny face contest/sing along/video making time. It lasted a while and this girl had me cracking up.

Love her! (and she placed her cute little hand on my face all on her own)

Among other things that we didn't get pictures of we:

* Cruised around in the Beast. One of my favorites!
* Ate out quite a few times. Sadly, I'm not much of a cook.
* Went to our Elders Quorum night where the kids played and ran around for a few hours.
* Went to the store to buy treats one time and a movie the other.
* Took them to church.
* Had friends + kids come play
* Took them to play with my other nephews where they did not want to leave
* Made forts with uncle Luke

Like I said, It was a fun weekend. I just hope they don't get sick of having their aunt and cousin Oliver around so much.

When it's time to party we will always party hard!

We threw Oliver a party. When I first had the idea to throw something together for him, I didn't think it would be anything big...well, it turned out to be huge (to me).

Of course we had a pinata! This was something that I loved as a kid. My mom would always make us a HUGE pinata and so I thought I'd do the same for my kids (minus the making part...I'd rather buy).

Batter up! These kids had some wicked swings but I think out of all of them, little Oakley's was the best.

Although they swung like mad, we still had to bust open the poor little penguin when his head fell off.

Oliver was spoiled by all his cousins. Thank you so much for bringing him such nice gifts.

We sang happy birthday...Baker style of course. And then indulged in the oh so chocolaty birthday cake. Thanks Costco!

We even let Oliver stay up way past his bedtime to have a cookie and a shower and take a quick family picture.

September 12th 2010 was awesome. Thanks again to everyone who came out to celebrate Olivers Birthday with us!

He's 2

Happy Birthday Oliver! The day you were born is a day we'll never forget. We love you and look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with you.

I've had a craving for the past-oh I don't know- YEAR! I seem to be the only person that ever feels like eating here. Luckily, Luke knows that, and decided to treat me and Oliver to dinner.

This is a picture of a well known statue close to where we were waiting to be seated.

Can you guess where we went?

Although this place is generally a casual place to eat at, Luke and I felt way way under dressed considering that everyone having dinner was dressed up for the show that was playing in a nearby theatre.

Can you guess now?

Last clue:

Pasta...and LOTS of it. We were all in heaven including Oliver.

Any guesses now?
