Easter Egg Hunt

This morning we went on a little family outing to the community EGGstravaganza Egg Hunt held at a park nearby. This was Niki's first hunt and eventhough he really enjoyed it once it got going ....It was basically torture for the first 30 minutes we were there. All the little ones who got there before the hunt started had to look at a few thousand bright and colorful eggs just laying around on the ground calling out their names while they were continiously told, "just a few more minutes baby."

I am pleased to say Niki, with a little help from Daddy, was very successful in his gatherings. I am even more please to say that no elbows were thrown by Niki or Daddy to get more eggs. They played very nicely with the other children. And of course, once Niki saw one egg open and that there was candy inside of it..... he fell to the ground dumped THEN threw his basket (that mommy made for him) and started grazing.

Running and Candy before 10:30AM makes Niki a Hoppy Hunter.

A Boy and His Dada

Everyday right at the same time, a certain little someone hears a car horn and runs to the door ready for a bigger certain someone to walk thru . Sometimes he runs thru the house yelling DADADADADADA and other times he just bangs on the door laughing until it opens. This is one of my most favorite parts of the day. Not only because I am usually exhausted and ready for some relief ....... :) but to watch them fall in love all over again with eachother is one of the sweetest things to witness. They are best friends and pal-arounds who like to run and rough house together untill they are both pooped out. Here are some of my favorite pictures of them together.

Poor Poor Niki and Daddy

This picture was just too cute not to post. This past weekend Niki and Daddy have been a little under the weather so we have been just hanging around the house doing the typical get better things. Slurping chicken soup and eating ice cream with Sprinkles. NOTE- Mommy is not sick however as the caretaker I have to take part in all activities. :) Anyhow, here is the cutest picture of Niki not feeling good. He makes sick look so darn adorable.

December Recap

I KNOW I blogging skills are not what they should be at the moment. However I will still play the "new to this" card and hope to get away with it for a few more months and then when the baby is born play the "but I have a new baby at home," card. Actually that second one isnt going to work with my family and friends....Darnt! Anyhow to give a quick recap, since we've been back from Germany things have slowed down a little....atleast travel wise.

Since we were all pretty exhausted we decided to stay home for the Holidays and have a small family Christmas. Although we missed our Texas was nice to be home with Niki Christmas morning when he opened all his presents. We weren't sure if he would really get it being a little over 16 months....but he caught on pretty quick. Everything by the tree went to him, simple enough. Cant wait to see him next year!

We also found out in the beginning of December that we are definitely having a little girl in May!Liliana Victoria Ahrens or Lily for short will be the newest addition to our little Ahrens family.

Anyhow, that's a short recap of our December..felt alot busier than what it looks like on screen.
Hope everyone had a great Holiday Season! Happy New Year!

Ryan, Sascha, Niki and Lily on the way...
