May 31, 2012 was Hayden's last day of Kindergarten! I seriously cant believe how fast this school year went! I cant believe my baby will be in first grade! Hayden I am so so proud of you. At the begining of the year at your kindergarten testing your teacher gave me a list of things you should learn this year and I was so stressed! But, I cant believe how smart you are. You are reading on a second grade level, you read EVERYTHING! You can write full sentences, sound words out and so much more. I will miss you so much when you go to first grade but, you are so ready for it.
Your cute class did a fun year end program and I cried my eyes out. You sang your favorite song from Kindergarten... Witch's Brew! I sobbed.
Hayden, We are so proud of you! We love you more than you'll ever know.
Thanks, for being such a great example to your little brother and sister.
P.S It was pajama day... That's why he is wearing jammie pants!
(I know what you were thinking)
Memorial Day this year was a blast! We normally spend the weekend with the family down in Vegas or Primm. But, this year we decided that since the children definatly out number the adults maybe we should try a more kid friendly environment. Park City! We stayed in an awesome condo at the Canyons. (way to go Jon!) It had four bedrooms, huge living room and even a hot tub on the balcony! The kids were in heaven. We had a difficult time getting the kids to leave the room! We went to dinner, guys went golfing, girls shopping, went to the crater in Midway, went to the train station for lunch (of course) and ended the weekend with a trip down the Alpine slide. It is always so fun to be together. This year was even better cause there was a lot more time to just hang out. The kids loves being together with the cousins, and I love being with my family! So fun!
Just hangin out after dinner... The kids decided to have a dance party!
On May 16th we had our 9 year anniversary! Say what? Am I seriously even that old? We spent our anniversary weekend (the 16th was on a wed) on a "staycation". Jon had his parents take the kiddos and we headed to the temple to do a session. Awesome... I'm always amazed at the salt lake temple. And, am so so grateful I married my BFF and sweetheart there, After, we headed over to city creek and went to the cheesecake factory and did some shopping. I love you Jon! I love we have been married for 9 years and I still get giddy being able to have alone time with you. I love how you still give me the butterflies, how you make me laugh (everyday), how you put up with me and never act annoyed even though im sure you are. I love you are the daddy to my children, I love that I get to go to bed with you everynight... The list goes on and on. But, most of all I LOVE knowing I can be your sweetheart for eternity! Happy Anniversary babe!
On May 11, 2012 Anna & Trevor were married. It was a fabulous day and the weather was perfect. Anna looked goregous and they were a glowing couple. We are so happy to welcome trevor into our family. The boys absolutly adore him and are so happy to have a new uncle. The kids were angels the entire day. Congratulations you two, we love you so much!
My cute sis in law Anna graduated with her Bachelor's degree in graphic design. We took the whole family to the graduation. The kids did surprisingly well, thanks to treats, phones and ipods. We are so proud of her! Congratulations Anna! We love you!
Noah has become quite the funny guy lately. He seriuosly cracks me up.
I am not even sure how to be a mother to him... because I just laugh.
I have to share some of the things he does.
Noah has been potty training for about 6 long months and I think he finally got it... However, the other day we were in the car and he said "mommy I smell pee" and he just kept repeating this. When we finally got to Target and got him out of the car he had peed his pants.
We took Hayden to taco bell around his birthday because he Loves the cinnamon twists they have. I told the boys that they couldnt have them until they ate thier tacos. Hayden picked out a long very cinnamon one and told me to save it while he ate. I continued eating my lunch when all the sudden noah slowly without me knowing snatched the one Hayden had called and ate it. As if that wasnt bad enough... He than had to tease Hayden by saying... Ha, Ha I got the very cinnamon one.
We dont have a fence in our backyard yet, and it has been so nice lately. The boys beg me to go out in the backyard all the time. One night we had just finished eating dinner and me and Jon were still sitting at the table and the boys begged us to go outside. We said sure, but of course gave them the lecture about not going in the street. I waited a few minutes and peeked out the window to check on them. What I saw?? Noah with one foot on the grass, one foot on the street. Just waiting for me to notice. STINKER!
The other day we went to Chick-fil-a. We had just finished and I told Noah to go and throw his drink away while I got sissy in her seat. When I was near the door to leave, I couldnt find Noah. After looking all around I spotted him up at the cash register. He just went up by himself and asked the worker for a refill... I said "noah I told you to throw your drink away" he looks at me and says... But, my tummy was thirsty. Sometimes I wonder if he understands that I am in charge and not him.
One last Noahism...
Noah LOVES doing the laundry with me. In fact he gets mad at me if I start the washer without him knowing. yes, he even cries. He Loves to watch the washer. I lift him up and let him sit on the rim of the washer and he will seriously just watch it. Weird? YES! But, it keeps him in one spot for at least 10 minutes.
I Love you Noah! You seriouly are so funny! You can be such a stinker, but you totally know how to work me... I can get so mad and you know it. So, you look up at me and say...
"Mommy, your the best mommy in the whole wide world"
How can I stay mad at that?
Oh, and he also Loves to blow dry his hair?? One, day jon was getting Noah out of the tub and I walked in and found this...
