I Can Walk Now!!!

Walking!!!  Brenna has finally started walking on her own.  She has been a little slow.  My other kids walked long before 16 months.  I hadn't decided to worry yet and her pediatrician said to wait one more month before starting physical therapy.  She is very wobbly, but so cute.  And now she is walking just in time for the warm weather.  I did not want her crawling on the cement outside and scraping up herself.   I guess I will finally buy her a pair of shoes.  Oh, She has some, but until now they were just for church or pictures. So we are now going to get some comfy walking shoes.

Brenna is growing up so fast!!! She is babbling and loves to follow all of us around the house. She loves to dance and eat!! The girl eats more than Colton and sometimes more than me!  I love that she loves food. She will eat any concoction I put in front of her! Colton and Haley have always been so fussy and I have spent many frustrating dinners forcing Colton to “just try it”.  She is such an easy girl!  We are so happy to have her!

A Visit from the Tooth Fairy!

Colton lost his first tooth a couple of days ago! He was so excited about it and carried it around with him all day!  The tooth fairy visited us for the first time!  Wow! I guess inflation has brought the price of tooth up since I was little.  Colton received $1 and I remember only getting 25 cents!  His tooth was a little dirty…I am not so sure the tooth fairy really should have paid for a cavity. I explained to Colton that he needs to be better at cleaning his teeth. And to my dismay we went to the dentist yesterday and he had his first cavity! Oh I am not happy.  For now we will just work on brushing better!

Getting Closer to the wedding!

Well, it is official.  Haley and Derek are now officially engaged!  They have been sort of engaged and talking about everything. They even had a date picked out.  Last week(Valentines Day) Derek got down on his knee and gave Haley a ring!  
I never thought I would be planning a wedding already!  This is crazy.   I thought I would have at least a year after Haley graduated from High School, yeah! thats right, High School! Haley is 17 soon to be 18 on April 8.  She has been dating Derek May since August of last year, when Derek came home from his mission.  What a turn around for Haley.  She is a different person!  She has a job(yes, she hates it! It is at Dominos and she is still looking for something else) and she got a 4.0 on her last report card.  If someone had told me a year ago my troubled teenager would be engaged and responsible I would have scoffed and laughed in their face!  OK. you get the idea.
Now, for the details;
 So far the date is set for Thursday, June 18 at 9:00 AM in the Salt Lake Temple with a Luncheon in the JS Memorial Building at 11:30 AM.  
The reception is still in debate but will be from 6-8ish with dancing probably till nine.  My days recently have been calling caterers, pricing reception centers, deciding on invitations and photographers etc!  I have a couple more meetings tomorrow, and hopefully we will make the final decision about where  this thing is going to be....  Wish me luck!
