Dinosaur Party

This year Kason decided he celebrate his birthday dinosaur style. All year he had planned on a Star Wars party, so I was surprised when he informed me that he instead had decided on a dino themed party. It turned out to be a lot of fun. We had friends and family over to take part in the festivities.

The highlight of the party was when Kason received his 'big present' from Aunt Shelly and uncle Rick. He was lucky enough to get a new motorcycle! He was so surprised, happy, and excited. He has since gotten pretty darn good at riding and hes only had the thing a couple weeks! He really is a natural at that kind of thing so I am so glad he is able to have one and get to do what he loves!

The kids then played games consisting of 'Pin the horn on the Stegasorus' and a 'Dinosaur Dig'.
We had a great time!

After games, we enjoyed some pizza then, of course, cupcakes and ice cream. We topped of the evening opening many fun gifts. Kason had a great party and a great birthday and I was glad to have it all be over!....even though I did have lots of fun:)

Blessed with the best....

....daddy in the world!

The boys and I are so very lucky to have Nick as a daddy and husband. He is everything we could ever ask for, plus some! He seems to know how to do and fix absolutely everything and does such a great job of teaching these boys all that he knows. I am confident that with Nick as a daddy, these boys (all 3 of them!) will grow up to be amazing husbands and fathers. And that makes me just love him all the more.

Thanks honey for all that you are, and all that you do
you are the best!

Happy 5th Birthday Kason!

Here's to wishing a Happy 5th Birthday to the most lovable little man in the whole world! Kason has grown up so much this past year. I am so thankful for the sweet little spirit that he brings to our home and family. He is such a well rounded little guy. He has the most tender heart and is so sweet, sensitive and loving. BUT, he is also a rowdy, wild and crazy boy who loves to get dirty and play rough. He has acquired many 'hobbies' throughout the year, always revolving around his daddys likes and interests. Most recently he has taken up golfing and is actually quite good! He loves to fiddle around with his clubs, hit golf balls in the backyard, and especially go to the driving range with dad.

He has also been riding his bike like crazy whenever the weather permits. He has always loved his bike and is such a natural. Reminder, he took his training wheels off at age 3!! He has 'graduated' from normal leisure riding, to riding up hills and jumping jumps! Makes mom a bit nervous, but he is so good I cant hold him back. This past month he has been into 'motorcyles' and watching videos of motocross. I think he may be having a bit of intuition of what is coming.....(stay tuned!)

Another thing I must mention about Kason this year is how incredibly sweet he has been during this pregnancy. He is always calling me 'pretty mommy' and telling me how pretty I look when I am feeling quite the opposite. I get an abundance of love, hugs and kisses. He has been so helpful doing extra favors for me like getting me water or helping out with things around the house. He is so excited to welcome little Kashton into the family and will be such an amazing big brother. He is such a great example to Kohen and we are so lucky to have him in our family!

Here are some of my favorite Kason moments from this past year.....


Its difficult to believe he will be starting Kindergarten this fall! Where does the time go??

'Sealed' the deal

June 4th was a very day special for our family. We have been preparing for, and were finally able to get ourselves to the temple to be sealed. It was an absolutely beautiful day in every sense of the word. The weather was picture perfect (go figure) and the peace that we felt after was indescribalbe. The boys looked so very handsome in their white clothes and were so well behaved during the ceremony. I was definitely a proud mama! It was a day we will remember for the rest of our lives. I am so thankful to know that our family is forever!
Thanks to Whitney and Kiley, I was able to get some pretty cute pics of the day. Thanks ladies!
