Sunday Parties

The last two Sundays we have had parties with the Anderson's. It has been so much fun.
We had a Super Bowl/Isaac's birthday party. We had so much yummy food and we all ate way too much. It was so fun just hanging out and watching the game and all the commercials. We had a blast.
Then last Sunday we had another party to watch the Grammys. I texted them a few hours before and told them we should dress like grannies to watch the Grammys. I must say it was one of my better ideas. It was so fun acting like grannies and adding granny commentary about all the singers. Hilarious. I think I had a little too much fun with that one.

Weekend trips

Last weekend, we went down to St. George for our niece,Lydia's, baptism. It was such a fun, quick trip. We got to spend lots of time just hanging out with family. Our kids are so happy just playing with cousins. They are so lucky to have so many so close. I didn't have any cousins closeby when I was little, so my kids are very blessed.

He's growing up too fast!

Britton got his Webelos badge last night at our Blue and Gold Banquet. I can't believe he is almost done with Cub Scouts. It seems like just yesterday that he started. Time just keeps speeding up.
I am sure proud of him and the great person he is.

Haley got $50 worth of gift cards to build-a-bear for Christmas. It's so much fun to go with her. Last night we were at the mall for some other things so she decided to get some new bears.
Now she's up to 7 bears.
Meet Cotton Candy and l'il C.C.

This girl

I cannot even begin to describe how much we love Lily around here. She is pure joy.
She is at such a fun age. She just had a language burst and is saying so many things and starting to string words together. It's so much fun to see what things she will say and how creative and funny she is. I just love how her little mind works.
She is also my little helper all day long. She follows me around and tries to do whatever I am doing. She likes to help me clean. She loves to sing songs and read books. One of her favorite things to do is steal my phone and look at all the pictures and videos on there. She is so happy just seeing herself and interacting with the videos of herself. It's adorable.
My other kids have told me numerous times that it's okay with them if she is my favorite child because she's their favorite. It's so cute how much in love with her they are. It's hard not to be completely smitten by her, though. We're so blessed to have her in our family.
