My baby hit the big One! Colton turned one year old and we have enjoyed every moment of this past year with him. He is a great little guy! He makes us laugh and just thinking about him puts a smile in our faces. We love you Colton! First taste of cake. Happy Birthday, Colton!
So, Ben and I had our fifth wedding anniversary! WOW! We look back and can't believe how fast they have gone by. We still joke and laugh and have fun just like we did during our dating months, but it's better now. We love being married to each other, the things we have achieved together, the places we've been, and most of all, the beautiful kids our Heavenly Father has blessed us with. Thank you for five years of much love and happiness!
Well, I am excited about this June of 2010 because it will bring our family a lot of fun events. Just to mention a few, it's finally the start of summer (if it ever decides to warm up here in Idaho), Ben and I are coming up to our 5th wedding anniversary (WOW! It feels like 10!), Colton will turn one year old!, and the FIFA World Cup begins in a few days. I am making an entry about it because this is a huge deal (for me anyway). It's the first time in 28 years that Honduras will make its appearance in this event. To get me started, I have been playing the song for the World Cup so many times that even my kids dance to it. Oh, viva la copa mundial!
So I finally get around to post pictures of Taylor and McKay's birthday party. We had lots of kids and lots of food. We had a great time and by the end of the party, Ben and I were soooo tired from trying to entertain 12 kids ages 2-4! (It made me appreciate our nursery leaders even more). We love our girls!
Before the party began, Taylor made the comment that I forgot to paint the slide blue on their Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake. I ran out of blue frosting and I thought I could get away with it or they wouldn't notice, but I was soooo wrong! Kids notice everything!
Just laying on his tummy watching his sisters run from room to room wasn't enough for Colton. So, my chubby muffin finally decided he needed to crawl and he did it last night. Precisely, the night I had to attend a church meeting and, of course, I missed the whole thing! (That's okay, the meeting was really good). Ben told me all about it when I got back. My first thought was: "I need to start babyproofing the house." On another good note, this morning, I was able to answer "Yes! He Crawls! when asked about it during Colton's regular check-up. He passed with flying colors and way above average on his height and weight. "He's a big kid!" doc said and I agree!
