MAX IS 5!!

My baby is 5! That is hard to swallow! I told him he could not turn 5, that he had to stay little. He started to cry cuz you have to be 5 to go to Kindergarten. So I let him turn 5, but I regret it!!!! The day after his birthday we were walking into the bank. I went to grab his hand and he pulled it away saying "Mom, I don't need you to hold my hand, I'm 5!" I wanted to cry!

He got a bike for his birthday and now all he wants to do is ride it! Cute boy!

Funny Max story...
One morning he came out groggy from his bed to the kitchen. He asked "Mom is it a T-ball day?" He has a label for each day, school day, church day, T-ball day. Anyway, I told him no it was a church day. He said in all seriousness, "I hate church!" Jack hearing this, called him to come into the family room. He tried to talk to him about all the good things about church, Primary, his teacher, singing time, etc. To all of this he replied the same, "I hate it!" None of my kids have ever come out and said that, so I was a little upset. Then Jack decided to change the subject a little and asked Max, "Who do you love most in all the world?" Max replied, "MOM, I love Mom most!" I'm not sure where he was going with this, but then Jack asked, "What about Dad?" Max thought for a second and said "I love you more than church!!!" I started to laugh so hard I cried!!
Out of the mouths of babes!!!!!!

We all love that little boy! He brings such joy to our family! He's a great dancer too! Ask him to show you his moves sometime! :)

Gracie is 8!

I'm struggling right now because my camera is not connecting to my computer. I can not download pictures. I like to blog by putting pictures on and commenting on them. So for now until I get a new cord, I have to write it out.

Gracie turned 8 on the 25th of April. We had a huge Make-over party for her. She invited 15 friends to come and get their toes, nails and hair done. We took pictures of each DIVA and put them in a frame that they each decorated. Thanks to my big girls and their salon-like talents, it was a huge success!

Then on May 9th, Grace was baptized. It was a great event. She looked beautiful in a white dress that my mom made for her. I wish you could see it...dumb camera!!! Anyway, Jack baptized and confirmed her. Maddie gave a great talk on the Holy Ghost and I did the spotlight.

Funny Grace story...
She is our little artist. One day she was in her studio and came out with invitations for an Art Show being held in 10 minutes. She hanged (that always sounds dumb (hanged) but it is correct grammar) her art all over the walls of the office and invited the family to come and view it. She even made note cards for herself describing her art to us! Love the imagination of this little girl.

We are so proud of her for making the decision to be baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Grace is funny, cute, creative, friendly and an all around great kid! Love you Gracie Girl!!
