Big Weekend for us!











Hayden can't wait to get baptized tomorrow! It's all he talks about! He had his Bishop's interview yesterday and though he was nervous, he did great!








Today we just need to try and get organized for Sophie's Birthday too! Poor Sophie, I hope she doesn't notice her birthday taking a back seat! She will be 2 years old on Sunday! I can't believe how big she is. When we left Utah she was just 6 months old. And now..... WOW!

Lighting Strikes!







Look what was out our window last night! It was non stop lightning for over an hour to the east. So the American Idol finale was even more exciting than usual! The funny thing was that there was lots of lightning, but absolutely no thunder what so ever. Crazy huh?








I couldn't quite get the "point and click" at the right time. I tried ok?! Lightning is quick, hence the phrase "Lightning Fast!" Which you all now know...... I'm not.


Well, ok this one looks like it was taken back in 1973, the blessed year Todd was sent by Heaven above to grace us all with his self proclaimed "gift of mad skills!", but that's forgivable right?

Our first taste of Summer!

















Well, I did it! I broke down and bought her a cheap little pool that will probably kill the grass! But who cares..... we're renters!





We went to the beach earlier, but as usual, I forgot the camera! "genius!" It was so fun to watch the girls run back and forth from the water just feeling free to go crazy and scream. I love the summer! And we can't wait to get the summer fun into full swing! You know me.... I live for it! Winter is sooooooo over rated! And honestly.......why is it on the planet at all? I'm gonna file a formal complaint with Mother Nature!


Who's with me?!! Boooooo Winter!

Shhhhh, Haley's asleep!


It was a little late, when I asked Abby to take a shower for church the next day. Of course Haley threw a fit! She wanted to take a shower too! It's not fair if sister gets to do something without her.

So, I put the two of them in the shower and turned around to go back down stairs to finish what ever it is Todd and I were watching. A few minutes later Abby yells for some towels. I yelled back that I put them on the edge of the tub. And since Abby feels like she now needs two towels instead of just one, she must have told Haley that she would go get her a towel, but she forgot.
It was a while after Abby was all dried off when we asked her where Haley was. I went up stairs to take a look and this is what I found............my little sweet heart asleep on the shower floor!
Quick thinking for Todd to throw a towel on her before we shot the picture!

Haley is quite the free spirit! ...... In a twisted, off handed white hot ball of crazy energy sort of way! Anyway, she loved Hawaii and she askes about going back to her beach all the time. She found some left over party decorations and as you can see here....... she put them to good use!

Enjoy......

She's my all in one talent show! If you get bored..... just borrow her for the day!

This is a picture of Todd with Julie Andrews! She was there that day. Disney Land was honoring her for all the work she'd done with Disney, so they named a horse from the merry go round ride after her! It was pretty crowded around where she was...... thus..... THIS is our Julie Andrews picture!
