Bailee, Dakota, Kayden, & McKenzie

My cousin Bailee & her three little girls came up this past Saturday so we could see the new babies and visit with her. They are so stinkin' cute & tiny! Here's just a few pictures to show you how small they are, or how big Wyatt is, you pick! He's such a chunk! Bailee looks so good! She has lost the weight like no other, we're so proud of her. She's such a good mom. Dakota, every 5 minutes would say, "I love you Mom."

Ok, so Dakota is 3 & Wyatt is only 9 months! haha!

What a natural!

hahahaha! I love this picture!!! He looks like a giant compared to them!
"Help me Mom! Kayden's going to eat me alive!"

The Grand Falls

Well, this last Sunday the whole fam damly went to the Grand Falls. It's on the highway heading out towards Leupp. Anyway, It was beautiful, as usual. But not as full and flowing as it used to be when I was younger. I wonder why? jk We used to go all the time when I was a kid, but it had been a while, so it was good to go back and to take Wyatt and Phil who have both never been there.

CHEESE!!! It was sooo windy, it was hard to keep your eyes open. Wyatt's trying really hard as you can tell.
From left to right is Levi, Dillin, Mi Madre, Mi Papa, Auntie J, Phil, & Wyatt.

Mormon Prom

Well this past weekend, Wyatt and I went to Mormon prom to help my Mom dj. My husband, being absent due to hunting ;), couldn't go and be my date so Wyatt, as willing as he is, took his place! We had a lot of fun and got to dress up, which every once in a while, I love to do. Wyatt looked handsome and was the best date I could've asked for. Oh yeah, he was my Mom's as well, what a pimp! jk! Heath and Janae came, Janae looked beautiful in her dress and Heath, as handsome as ever. Anyway, it was a lot of fun.

My Mom the dj! Isn't she so cool?!?

Heath & Janae all dressed up and ready to bust a move!
Wyatt, acting like the King sitting on his throne. What a goof!

Momma & Wyatt dancing the last dance... It was a great night :)

Phil hits his second deer in less than 2 years of marriage!

So Phil was driving home on Lake Mary Road after a fishing trip on Saturday a couple weeks ago and Whammo!!! He hit his second deer in less than 2 years of marriage! Can anyone say "Bad luck?" He called me right after it happened and said "Babe I have some bad news" and of course my first reaction was, "did you get another ticket?" Because he has gotten his share of tickets believe you me. "Nope. I hit another deer." Anyway, it was pretty bad, but we are very thankful it wasn't a huge elk or anything that could've caused more damage or possibly hurt Phil.

These two pictures were taken right when he got home that night. He's so proud...

These were taken the next day. You can see the huge dent on the side and the drivers mirror that was ripped off. yeah, lovely, I know.

Good times at the Desert

I am so behind on posting it's ridiculous! Anyway, we went to the Desert down in coolidge again with Phil's family about 2 weeks ago. It was a ton of fun as usual. It was Wyatt's first time in the swimming pool and he loved it, as you can tell by the pictures. We rode on the desert, had dinner out in the desert, celebrated Eliza's birthday, played lots of games, swam...we just had a blast! Sorry it has taken me so long to put this up. There's still a lot to come, hopefully I'll get it up here soon.

Parley P. Pratt...An amazing man!

Ok, so I started reading this book several years ago called "The Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt", I got 3/4 of the way done with it and put it away for a long while for some reason? (What was I thinking?) Anyway, I just found it the other day and have been addicted to it since. I can't put it down! Every minute I have to myself, I read it. For those of you who know me, I'm not much of a reader at all. I have to be hooked from the very beginning to stay interested and finish it. Anyway, this book is amazing! Parley P. Pratt was such a spiritual man, intelligent man of God! The example he has set, has and will be remembered for years to come. If you haven't read this book, then I strongly suggest you get yourself a copy right now! It has motivated and inspired me so much to become a better person, to be more well-rounded and to not be afraid to stand up for what I believe in and to share what I know to be true to other people around me! I'm telling you, you will not regret reading this book. If any of you want to borrow my copy, you're more than welcome, just let me know. :)
