Treyson is 1 !!!

Another big milestone happened on May 9th.

I seriously LOVE this kid!!! It has been such a fun experience having him around. A little bit on the Momma's-Boy-side, but I'll take that anyday over colic. As seen above, he makes the goofiest faces and has us laughing almost everyday.
Treyson loves music. He must watch me while music is playing because I tend to sing to every song. Along with his usual dance moves, he bobs his head up and down while opening and closing his mouth (like he's singing the words). Adorable and hilarious!
Walking is close in his future. He's taking quite a few steps on his own, but still needs practice. Loves balls. Loves, loves, loves, LOVES BALLS!!
Also loves food -- any kind. His favorite is whatever you're eating.

This past Saturday, he finally got his cake. I bought one of those gigantor cupcake molds and finally got to use it.

Treyson went right for the candies. What?....He's never had those before!! He must have just been attracted to the colors or something.

As soon as Trey noticed that I wasn't going to stop him, there was no holding back:

My Aunt Linda was very impressed that me, of all people, would be letting my kid get this dirty.
But I had already planned ahead for a sink bath and change of clothes right after.
Thanks Uncle Brad and Aunt Brenda for letting us mush cake all over your beautiful new countertops. Your house is beautiful.

Daahh--dah, dah, dah--daahh, daahh. Daahh--dah, dah, dah--daahh.

(Graduation March)

Jeff graduated with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy on May 9th, 2009.

It's a new feeling being done with school. Once Jeff takes his licence test and accepts a job, it will be another new feeling...... a really good feeling.

We are all so proud of Jeff's dedication and work. I'm glad he found something that he loves doing. That makes all the difference.

The past three years have been a growing experience, living away from family, and such. Flagstaff will always bring amazing memories. We made such good friends and I will never forget them! Reunion thoughts are already picking at my brain.

Sorry Jessie, you're closing your eyes in this one. Steven -- we can totally tell you're tiptoe-ing!!

Carl Wiltbank, Ben Cox, Russ Christensen, Morgan Brown, Derek Flake, JEFF, Steven Kempton, and Chris Legler (being carried). School wouldn't have been the same without these guys.

Thanks to anyone and everyone who supported us through this time!!

We love you all!

Way to go hon! I love you!

Domestic Overload

The oven timer goes off, I reach over, shut it off.

Go across the kitchen to grab my oven mit.

Put it on.

Walk back across the kitchen.

Reach out and open......... the fridge.

That's when I know I've hit my baking quota for the day.

Update coming soon on all the last few weeks. A LOT HAS HAPPENED!!

Katie's Prom

Katie Lady had her senior prom this past Saturday. She looked gorgeous!! I'm going to take half the credit, though because she let me do her hair and makeup (not that she needed much).


This was my first time attempting this up-do. It took me over an hour and 53 bobby pins!!(Kaite's got A LOT of hair.) I was pretty impressed with myself. Even the flower clip was a product of my craftiness. I thought about charging her but then I remembered all the free babysitting she does for me.

Here is the prom couple -- I totally forgot the guy's name -- sorry.

Here's typical Katie, taking charge: "Let's go."

Her date pulled up in this awesome yellow car which went perfectly with the rest of the ensembles.

This last photo would have been amazing with a really expensive camera (sigh).

One more happy senior on her way to prom.
