Birthday #8 WAS GREAT!

William- This was the birthday of ALL birthdays! We started with breakfast in bed as usual!

Like every morning, you wake up surrounded in pigs! I think you sleep with at least ten pigs every night! Little do you know what gift awaits you this year!

You got the two Lego sets you've been drooling over...

You got a beautiful set of scriptures to go along with your baptism...

We tell you to shower quickly and jump in the car for your last surprise...(hence the slicked hair you and your brother are sporting above)

We lead you blindfolded over to the Bishop's farm...

The big reveal? A REAL, LIVE PIG of your own!! Guess what his name is?! WILBUR!

It doesn't take long before you catch on to the feeding and watering of your new, lovable pig! You are in heaven!

Your favorite birthday treat? COOKIES!

Your cute brother showing you the ropes in Scouts! are SUCH a WONDERFUL, SWEET boy! We love your innocent spirit and tender heart! You are talented in sports, music, and your schooling! We could not be more proud of you! We can't wait to see all the places you will go!  

Sweet Caroline Turns One!

I can't believe it has been one year since we were watching Jimmer between contractions! Our little sweetie is one! Little Caroline is always full of smiles! We have been so blessed to have her for a wonderful year already!

Caroline was just four days older than her little cousin, Hadlee. They get so excited to be around one another...well, usually Hadlee gets a little nervous because Caroline loves to attack her (typical faces above).

I CAN'T believe Caroline blew out her own candle! I don't remember my other kids being able to do that at one! She was so excited!

My cute friend, Tara made the cake! Didn't she do an amazing job?! I loved it!

My dad has a birthday two days before Caroline and we sang to him as well! I sure love him and appreciate all he does for me and my little family!

Caroline- you really do light up the room with your smile! Thank you for being so snuggly and sweet! We love you more than words can say!

Little Caroline

Caroline is SUCH a doll right now! I LOVE this age! She is all over with the crawling and has started pulling herself up. She is so much fun! Kate sure loves to kiss her to death, all day long! I am so grateful that I get to be home with them everyday!

Thanksgiving was so much fun this year! We had the chance to host at our house and it was such a treat! I loved being in the kitchen all day baking pies, rolls, turkey and the whole nine yards! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family! Love you all!
