Now that Daxton is 3, he started Sunbeams! He is the youngest and he smallest in the class, but he is so excited to be there and loves learning about Joseph Smith. His little class is seriously the best class in Primary and sit there quietly with their arms folded during sharing time. Dang cute.
Bodie starts nursery in 2 weeks..... not that we are keeping track or anything!
LOVE these two handsome boys!

Christmas and New Years 2012

We had an AMAZING Christmas. This year we decided we wanted to stay home for the holiday. It was a really hard decision because being with family for Christmas brings so much fun and memories. We decided it is time for us to be home and start making our own memories, as hard as it is! We made sure to fill our time with lots of fun activities and good friends and family. It turned out to be one of my favorite Christmases.
Check out these handsome boys in their bow ties! I LOVE getting them all dressed up and dapper looking. I don't have a girl so they will just have to appreciate the fact that I get them all gussied up.

Santa came and brought new bikes! They have mostly been sitting for now so hopefully they get used once it warms up a little, which seems like it will NEVER happen!

Nana gave the boys this put-put golf set and it has been a blast!

The Christmas carnage.

We has my sister and some really great friends come over for Christmas dinner. It was d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s. Complete with crab legs and the best pies EVER.

Then, we headed to sunny St. George for New Years. It was sunny, but not warm.... at all! It is still fun to all be together.

I got to get some smooching time with my newest little niece, Jaymison. She is such a doll! Holy moly, I wish we lived closer to them.

We cut a rug as usual. The kids love this and could do it all day. The babies are old enough to join the fun now. Little Ty has some awesome moves!

Happy 2013! It is going to be a great year!

Daxton's 3rd birthday!

I am one day short of a month late posting about this, so that pretty much means I am RIGHT on schedule! I cannot believe my little baby is 3. I am not totally sold on the fact that getting older is good. I would freeze him right now, he is that precious. I love to see him grow into his personality and develop real interests and talents. For starters, he is such a loving little boy and has an amazing temperment (gets that from his dad). Sometimes when I get frustrated with him for some silly reason he will just come up and hug me or interupt me by saying, "Mama, I love you!" Then I melt with sweetness, forget why I was discipling him, and we move on with our day. So maybe, he is just smart! He has a way of calming us all with humor and sweetness. He is a wonderful big brother. I know it must be hard for him to always form to Bodie (who has a pretty demanding personality), but he does it with ease. He is so creative and funny! He makes us laugh every day.... a lot! His favorite things right now are cowboys, cows, horses, cowboy boots, roping, basketball, football, golf, shooting his toy guns, and shooting his bow and arrow. You should see his bow and arrow skills..... it would shock you how good he is! You would think he is a ranchers kid! Oh my sweet Daxton, we love you to bits and pieces. I wouldn't change a thing about you..... please always stay sweet and innocent.
Here he is playing with his cow hauler semi-truck. See, ranchers kid.

He begged for months for a Buzz party. So..... ask and you shall recieve.


Maddie and Ella are among his favorite people in the whole entire world.

The future world class hunter himself. He wants to be just like his dad, and it is dang cute! He CANNOT wait until I let him go hunting with dad.

"There's a snake in my boot!"

We love you little Buddy. Happy Birthday!
