When I am Baptized

This last month our now 8 year old, Andrew was baptized. He was very excited and took it very seriously. Sometimes when he realizes he did something not nice I look over and see him with his arms folded and head bowed. "What are you doing?" I asked him once. "I'm saying sorry to Heavenly Father." he says. No big deal.

Some family and  friends were able to come to the baptism and we had everyone over to our house afterwards for lunch and cake. It was a good day.

William Is 3!

This last week our little William turned 3 years old! We had a little family party at home. The main present that he got was a Cars 2 scooter for him to ride with his brothers outside. He is so fun and cute and independent sometimes. He very much lives up to him name. We are working on potty training but I don't think it will happen until he "wills" it to. Ha.

Yes, 3 cars, 3 years old!

We often have a hard time getting him to open his eyes for pics. As soon as we say "smile" he closes his eyes.  So we usually have to catch him by surprise.

Spring is Here! Almost

I am loving the wheat grass that I planted this year. Makes the whole kitchen feel more springy. I am also loving that we finally finished painting the kitchen. Anyone who has visited our house in the last year might notice that the blue smiley face is finally gone.

You know what else I'm loving? My new KitchenAid stand mixer that my sweet hubby got me for an early birthday and mother's day present. He said he felt guilty every time he saw me make bread with my old smaller machine. I should have been making bread more often on Saturdays. If I had only known... Yay for guilt!

Today I finally got to make my bread without having to split the dough in half. The loaves came out wonderfully large too. Mmm, time to break out the butter and honey.

It's Great To Be Eight

My little boy turns EIGHT! (insert obligatory sensitive mama line here) He's grown so tall, smart, and mature. I don't know what I am going to do when he turns 16. 

The week he turned eight he decided that I'm not Mommy anymore and KC isn't Daddy, we are Mom and Dad. And he is very good about only using those terms. 

We opened presents as a family the night before his birthday with Grandma and Grandpa. Then on his birthday he got to have a friend party. There was no theme. It was just meant to be "All About Andrew" and it was. The cake was plenty green (His favorite color since Isaac has picked blue.) and it wasn't too unsightly. I had issues with the frosting. Anyway he loved it all and had a great time.

I just realized why I seem to often have lousy cakes for Andrew's birthday. He is the beginning of the birthday season in the house and I'm a little out of practice.. that must be it.
