Cake 3

I never knew those roses on cakes were so hard.....but they are!!! It took a lot of practice, and I need more but I enjoyed making the roses today.

Dress up!

I love these pictures. Grandmas is so much fun! Once a month we go there for dinner with the family, and this was the first week there that she was really walking on her own, so she had a blast!

To the Fathers in my life....

Dear Fathers;
You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.

Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.

Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The woman I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.

I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

Thank you to my dad for showing me how to be a better person. I learned about service, hard work, and generosity as I watched you live your life. You've raised 7 children who have strong testimonies and value family and I know it's because of your influence. I Love you dad!!

15 months

Our darling is growing up FAST!! On the 18th of this month she will be 15 months old. Some things about her....

* She LOVES music. She sings all the time. She loves hymns in church and will full on sing with us at the right time. She loves dancing, humming, anything that has to do with music is her favorite. She also drums all the time. Give her 2 items in her hand and she will find a way to drum.

* She has 4 upper teeth and 2 lower.

* She is walking. She pretty much only walks now, although it is still a little shaky. Every night she does laps around the couch. She just walks and walks in a circle.

* She understands what we're saying. She knows give daddy kisses night-night, want to take a bath, want to help mommy do the dishes, blow kisses, can I have a kiss, are you hungry? She also signs "more". We starting to teach her "please, thank you and all done"

* She sleeps through the night without any problems, lay her down and walk out. She'll sleep from 8p to 9 or 10a. She is a great sleeper.

* She is slowing down on her eating, she still eats very well, but not as much. So far she doesn't like bananas and potatoes (unless it's french fries or tater tots).

* She is a climber, and she's good at it. She just has a littlbe problem getting down, but she's working on it.

She is our joy, we love her dearly and can't wait to see her grow into an amazing young woman.

Family time

We went to the park yesterday, just wanted to shared some cute pictures. She loves playing with her bucket and playing on the swings and slides. She was TIRED when we got home! In fact she slept in this morning until almost 10, I'm blaming the fun at the park for that!!
