The BIG { 2 }

I have had a bunch of people tell me to do a new post, and yes, I will admit I am not the best at keeping up. Who am I kidding? I really dislike talking about myself, so I'm usually the one to put this on the back burner. BUT... those of you who requested, here you go.

We have been one super busy family! Kevin was sent to Japan to work in January for TWO months. To tell you the truth, he really didn't want to go in the first place... but being an amazing husband that he is, he went because I have always wanted to go! So, I was able to fly out there for a week in January, and had the time of my life!! It was such a huge culture shock, and I LOVED having sushi and all of the different food around! Funny thing, but he is WAY better at chopsticks than I am now.  What will I show him up on now?

The Big Buddha
At the Canon Temple - I wasn't supposed to take any pictures of this (it was forbidden) does that mean I'm going to hell now? haha

Fortunately for us, Kevin was sent home so that he wouldn't miss Addison's birthday. We were so lucky to have him come home when he did, because a week after he got home, Japan had the tragedy with the Tsunami and all. I don't know how we got to lucky, but I am incredibly thankful he is still with us!

Addi turned the big { 2 } on March 19! I can't believe she is already two years old! I can recall going into the hospital March 18, 2009, and having them admit me because I had preeclampsia. Even though it was a scary ordeal, I was so blessed to have my healthy little girl come into the world on the 19th! We don't know what we would do without our little bundle of joy! She has really made our life full, and I cherish every day I get to spend with her!  Addi has quite the personality! She { LOVES } to socialize and brings such amazing aura when she enters a room. I'm not saying she is the happiest little girl ALL of the time, in fact but when she is happy... I think I can hear birds sing, haha. There was a saying my grandma used to say about me...

" When she's good, she's REALLY REALLY good!
And when she's BAD, she's HORRID! "

She was a natural! I didn't even have to teach her to blow out the candles, she just did it on her own!

Yeah I am so happy to see a new post! I can't believe she is two. I don't think I will ever get used to time going by so quickly.
So sad to hear what happened to Japan but glad that your hubby was able to miss it.
Keep up the post. I miss reading and seeing all the pictures. By the way Travis would be totally jealous that you two went to Japan. He loves that place and wants to go back soon.
