Party Queen

Lilly got invited to her first friend party. It was for a friend in our ward named Abby. She had a princess tea party and it was just fabulous!
Here is Lilly ready to go!
Checking out what's in her purse

Playing a game at the party. There were 9 princesses and one handsome little prince in a tux! Too cute!

Decorating her cup

Eating Lots and Lots of yummy food!

Once again, eating with her friend Chaya.

Being a little diva!

Here is the birthday girl blowing out her candles, but I like how Lilly is next to her helping her blow them out!!!
It was such a fun party! Lilly didn't fully understand what was going on with the games, but she had fun anyway!

We were also invited to Ty's birthday party at the Living Planet Aquarium. The last time I had taken Lilly to the Aquarium was almost a year ago and she didn't fully understand what was going on! She had a much better time this year!
Checking out the tank in the Sunken Ship

Sliding down the frog! Weeeeeeee!We, of course, had a great time at this party, too! After the Aquarium we went to dinner with Ryan and Kristyn at Santa Monica Pizza! Oh so yummy! Thanks to the Steele's for sharing their giftcard with us!

So I know how annoying it can be when people have private blogs because you don't know if they have updated without randomly checking their blog. I have seen a few people do this. I am making this blog public again, and I will post here when I post on our actual family blog. So the updates will show up in your reader. There will be a link on this public blog so that you can click it and it will automatically take you to the private blog. I sent everyone an e-mail inviting them to the new blog. You will just have to accept the new invite. It may sound a little confusing. But I think it will work out better. I don't know, we'll see! If you do not get an e-mail, please let me know. I had to add them all over again, so I may have missed some on accident!

The Wonderful Life of Lilly

Here are some random pics I have taken over the last month of Lilly. She is a very busy child!

She is usually pretty good about only drawing on paper (we've learned the hard way like everybody else!) Somehow she got a hold of a Sharpie and went to town on her little legs!
In this pic she is talking to her aunt Andrea. I don't know where she gets that from! I thought they didn't do this until they were teenagers...or at least able to talk in full sentences!
Reading a story to her baby Lulu Belle
Random cute pic at one of our poker parties.
Taking a nap in her doll's bed.
Loves with mommy!!!

St. George

This will be shocking to all! We went to St. George last weekend and I am already blogging about it!!!!!!

We went to St. George with our friends Amanda, Neil, and Carter. You may remember them from the post about the Treehouse Museum. We were all looking forward to getting away from the cold to enjoy a little warmth! Boy were we wrong! It was SO COLD! Despite the cold, we had! We were all able to ride together in one car. The drive down was a little hard for the kids to handle. We left here around 5, so they were tired and cranky for part of the drive until they finally fell asleep! We arrived to our condo late Thursday night. We got situated and went to bed. Friday we went to the park at the condo. The kids had a blast. The Parade of Homes was going on during this week, so we bought tickets and went to that. The kids actually enjoyed it, especially Carter. He kept saying things like, "I love this carpet", "I love this bathroom". It was too funny! We then ate dinner at a Mexican Restaurant called Pancho and Lefty's. They claim to have the best fajitas in Utah! They were pretty darn good! The boys also did some golfing while the kids napped and the girls did some shopping while the boys put the kids to bed!

We also went to Snow Canyon and did a mini "hike" then played in the sand dunes. I didn't take my camera with me on the hike, but Amanda did so I will have to get pics from her! Here are a few from the dunes.
Lilly wanted to hide on this shelf while getting ready for bed to scare daddy!

Saturday we decided to check out the Washington City Rec center. They had a wonderful pool for the kids with slides and squirt guns and other fun things! We were there for a few hours without the kids getting cranky because they enjoyed themselves so much! After that we went to a few homes then out to dinner at the Pizza Factory! YUMMY! The owner there was so awesome! Carter has a milk and egg allergy and the owner catered to his needs far above and beyond our expectations.
Checking out Neil's phone:

Lilly and Carter. He is almost double her height! I can't believe I actually caught a pic of both of them smiling at the same time!

Leaning in for a kiss...
Sunday we went to a yummy local cafe called the Bear Paw. SO delicious! We went back home, packed up, and headed home. We had a great time, the only problem is, it went by too fast!

We made a quick stop to the park on the way home:

Valentine's Day

Here a just a few pics of our little Love Bug on Valentine's day. She did not want to sit still for a picture, so these are the best ones we were able to get!
We had to get in a quick Valentine's day nap. I love how her arms are behind her head!!!

My mom and dad stopped by to drop off a Valentine's day treat, and Lilly was being silly and showing off for them!!!
We had a fun, relaxing Valentine's day accompanied with plenty of yummy treats! Happy Valentine's Day my Loves!!!

Totally Awesome 80's

Yes, I am playing catch up again! My totally awesome husband turned 30 on January 16th! He is not one who likes a fuss made over him, so I did what I could without making him upset! I decided since he was born in the 80's, it would be fun to have an 80's themed party! I had so many radical ideas, but given the crowd, I kept it to a minimum!!! Trevor has 2 other friends in the group that he has known since Joy School with January birthdays. We have always used it as an excuse to get together! Well, one of those friends wasn't in attendance this year, so it was just Trevor and Ryan. I called Ryan's wife, Kristyn and told her my crazy idea and she jumped right on board!!! Here is our night in pictures!

Here's the invite. Blogger uploaded it weird. It looked better than this!

First attempt at fondant. Didn't quite turn out how we had planned, but it worked!

Kayla and Eric

The Gnarly Fousts

We even busted out the Atari! It didn't last long though. It's a little old and didn't work very well!

The kids wondering what in the world this is!!!

Awesome graphics!

The girls minus Kaylee

Notice Ryan's "Acid wash" jeans! LOL!

Happy birthday, babe! I hope you had a great 30th! Thanks to everyone who came! We had a great time! It was fun to flashback to the 80's! Why did we ever think crimping and mullets looked good???
