Easter 2010


The boys loved their Easter baskets and of course hunting all over the house for eggs! Patrick was even nice enough to save some for Shane to find. :)


Looking handsome in their Easter outfits.

A family photo at church after an AMAZING Easter worship service. He is risen, He is risen indeed! :)

PT is 4!





It's hard to believe we now have a 4-year-old running around the house! We had a wonderful party with our family and Patrick's friends from preschool and Sunday School. According to PT, the best parts were the bounce house and the new Lightning McQueen "big boy" bike from mommy and daddy! :)

Pretend City-- Jan. '09





Patrick had so much fun at Pretend City with Auntie Andrea and James. Patrick loved being a fireman and a singer...what a combo! And Shane just got to go last week...loved it! What a FUN place! :)

PT at the Fire Station -- Jan. '09







Daddy took Patrick to the Fire Station and boy, was he in heaven! A lot of his friends from Sunday School and preschool were there, and they had a blast! :)

Visitors from Boston!


Patrick and Shane LOVE their Auntie Autumn!


Having a blast in sunny Laguna Beach with Scott and Autumn!


Best friends and sisters forever :)


Yep, that's Adam Sandler! He was there playing with his daughter. He was super down-to-earth and nice. Autumn hid behind a palm tree and took some great shots! :)


I suppose even celebrities have to stop and tie their shoe. ;) You rock, Adam Sandler!

Christmas Train 2009





Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from the Mercier family!
We enjoyed a chilly winter night at Irvine Park once again with the exciting train, sparkling lights, and of course Santa! :)
May you all enjoy this special time of year as we celebrate the holy birth of Jesus Christ our Lord! :)
Love,
Nate, Sandy, Patrick (3 1/2 yrs.) and Shane (almost 17 mon.)

Patrick's Preschool Christmas Program 2009

Mommy and Grandma Cylene had so much fun watching Patrick's first Christmas Program. Once he warmed up a little, Patrick sure enjoyed singing his "baby Jesus" songs! :)

Happy Fall to you all! Here are our recent family pictures taken at "Dinosaur Park" nearby in Laguna Hills, CA. :) Big boy Patrick is now 3 1/2 and little bro Shane is 15 months. It was HOT that day, but we had fun!
