magic worm

owen's kindergarten class had a talent show last week. owen was so excited to do a "magic trick" with his magic worm. for some reason i couldn't get my camera to record the first part of his trick with the cups, but i did catch the finger looping.

you can tell he is very nervous but we were proud of owen for stepping out of his comfort zone and participating.

wesley’s 4th birthday

thursday was wesley’s birthday. kevin took the day off and we played ALL.DAY.LONG!

we took wesley to pick out his bike last week so he wasn’t surprised when he saw it…but, he was thrilled to see a green helmet (his favorite color) that matches his bike perfectly.



kevin made wesley a fantastic birthday breakfast…


and then we sent owen off to school. the weather was perfect so wesley was able to play outside all morning on his new bike and with his new Styrofoam airplane.

after owen made it home we played outside until everyone was hungry. then we headed over to mcdonald’s for lunch! the kids were THRILLED to be getting happy meals. after lunch we took madalyn over to our neighbors (THANKS BRENDA) while the rest of us went and watched Rio at the theatre. wesley had played so hard he slept through most of it. it was a very relaxing two hours. (;

we had my parents over for a pizza dinner. we were glad they came to join us. they gave wesley a new BIG book, take me out to the ball game. it came with a cd of carly simon singing the song. wesley has been singing it non-stop since thursday. it’s pretty cute!



wesley requested a batman cake and he was thrilled with the way it turned out! we forget how easy it is to please them.



make a wish little buddy! we love you wesley!

celebrating wesley!

well, it's that time of year again. cinco de mayo and my baby's birthday! today we are celebrating wesley's 4th birthday. i am so thankful for the hugs, kisses, smiles, funny sayings, and the sweetness of this little man!

it nearly kills me to edit his montage each year and try to decide which pictures to take out. but, i managed.

happy birthday wesley! we love you and we are thankful we get to celebrate you today.

always room

madalyn LOVES to pal around with her big brothers and their friends. and they are pretty tolerant of it. madalyn just figures there is always room for her. yesterday the boys were watching a show and madalyn decided she would prefer to sit on the ottoman with wesley and carson (our neighbor friend) instead of on the couch. she squeezed right in and they didn’t make a peep about it! so sweet.


jamis’ weekend

last weekend we made a trip to utah to be a part of jamis’ baptism. we went down LATE thursday night and stayed through sunday afternoon. we were able to spend a lot of time with family from both my side and kevin’s. it was a nice get-away.



I LOVE witnessing a baptism! I always leave with a firmer knowledge of my Savior and Heavenly Father.

jamis was just as handsome and sweet as ever. nice work melissa and blake!


grandpa, grandma, and jamis
