A Very Happy Birthday!

I had to take time out to THANK my wonderful family for a wonderful birthday!! We had a great dinner and I enjoyed everyone's company! I'm so blessed with an amazing family in my life, new and old!  And to top it off it was a BEAUTIFUL day! Most importantly I have to thank my sweetheart Preston for all he did to make my day the best it's ever been.  I don't know where I'd be without him, he really is my everything!! I love you honey!!

Easter Fun!

We had such a wonderful Easter!! The girls were able to spend Saturday afternoon and evening with us! We went to Grandma Jo's for a BBQ with the family. We hid 47 Easter eggs filled with candy for Makaydee and her cousin Kirra to find! They had a ball! Great Grandma Billie and Grandpa Kent came up to celebrate as well and the girls sure loved seeing them! They loved all the toys the Easter Bunny brought: bubbles, jump rope, Frisbee, dresses, coloring books, necklaces! They made out like bandits! It was sure nice to spend some time outdoors letting the kids run around! Sunday Preston and I went to church then headed to another family BBQ just up town from us. There they hid over 200 eggs with money and candy in them. We didn't stay to see the hunt but heard it was pretty funny. We headed to Heber after that to have Easter dinner with my mom and dad. Pulled pork with Carolina style sauces, funeral potatoes, corn bread, coleslaw, baked beans, it was quite the feast! Needless to say we were full at the end of the day! Then we took advantage of the beautiful weather and took his parents suzuki samuri up Little Valley. What a beautiful and bumpy drive! We couldn't make it too far up because of the snow and mud but we sure enjoyed being outside....we have a bad case of spring fever!! Then we ended the day cuddled on the couch watching War Horse. It was the perfect Easter Sunday!!

Easter Eggs!

Maycee Ladean!

Maycee is the sweet baby of the family. Not very often do you see her without a smile on her face! She loves her big sister more than anybody else! As long as she can watch Kaydee she is a happy girl. Maycee is now 10 months old! She has several of her bottom teeth (that she wasn't happy about getting!) And she is starting to crawl all over the place!! She hasn't quite gotten the hang of being up on her knees, but she can sure scoot on her belly extremely fast!! If she isn't laughing at big sister or squirming around...she's eating!! Thank you Gerber for making so many baby food products to keep our baby girl satisfied! She is growing like a weed, and getting more of her own personality every day! We can't wait to see the amazing girl she'll grow up to be!

Makaydee Jo!

Makaydee is our big 4 year old! She can light up any room she walks into! She loves to dance and sing all day long. She goes to preschool and is so smart she scares us sometimes! Her favorite foods are crackers and chips. She loves water but only if it's cold! She is quite the artist and can focus on coloring no matter what is going on around her. One of her favorite things to do when she comes to our house is make cookies!! She loves making anything really, she loves to help in the kitchen. She is a good big sister and can make Maycee laugh no matter what she does! She has a smile that will melt your heart and a laugh that you can't help but laugh along with! None of us know what we would do if this sweet girl hadn't come into our lives!!

We kicked off 2012 with a family trip to DISNEY LAND!!! Grandma and Grandpa Muir took the whole family! Preston, the girls and I, along with Amanda, Justin and their two children. We had a blast. We stopped at the beach first so the kids could play in the water and find sea shells. Then spent four days in the parks!! We got to see Mickey and Minnie, Goofy, Winnie the Pooh and all his friends! We watched the parade while in Disney and saw plenty more characters we love! At California Adventures we watched the wonderful world of color, an awesome water show with movie projections shown on the water. And of course we rode LOTS of fun rides! Some of our favorites were Winnie the Pooh and Nemo. Of course the adults favorites were tower of terror, splash mountain, and grizzly rapids! We had such a great trip and didn't want to come home! Can't wait for our next visit to the happiest place on earth!!
