Potty Training

Daphne has been out of diapers for about a month now.  She is such a smart girl and really knows how to push my buttons with potty training! :)   She usually has a daily oops, but is getting better everyday.  I love her laugh and smile after she does her "business" on the potty.

Happy 1st Birthday Bridges!

Yeppers, he is one year old!  This year has gone by sooo fast.  What a funny sweet little boy I have.  Bridges loves to crawl around the house and get into anything I leave down.  He is constantly smiling and loves to give kisses.  I kiss those juicy dimples in return!  He loves food, any food he can get his hands on, and he is not picky.  I swear he eats more than Davis or Daphne. 

For his birthday we had a family party at the church ramadas.  I made Hawaiian haystacks, pumpkin bars and Grandma Wilhelm made marshmallow brownies.  It was such a beautiful evening and we spent several hours enjoying food and conversation while the kids ran wild. 

I love this little boy!

Pioneer Days

Since moving up to St. Johns I have been so excited for a 2 things, Pioneer Days and The Fair.  Pioneer Days was a blast.  Jennifer came up and stayed with me and Jake was at a work conference in Tucson.  We ate El Camino, cruised, watched movies, went to the campfire circle, went to Lyman Lake, talked and talked.  I love my Jennifer.  Jake was able to come home early on Saturday and we all went to the parade with the Boyles.  These pictures are from one of the trips to Lyman Lake.

 While playing in the lake Davis told me he had to go to the bathroom.  I told him to go ahead and pee in the lake.  So he got out of the water and pulled down his pants and went!

Lyman is only open during the summer so we come here at least once a week!

Family Journal

It has been over a year since we posted.  I have been thinking about this and how much I want to record our family history.  Jake & I are both on facebook and there are updates and pictures there, but I really want to be able to print out a yearly yearbook of the changes in our life.  So just a warning to those that are reading these next probably saw them on facebook.

Daphne and I stayed home from church yesterday.  Neither of us have been feeling very good for about two weeks now.  I think we were infected by the monster haboob.  I felt like joining her but started looking for the missing remote and ended up cleaning the entire house in the process. 

After cleaning and showering I started on dinner.  We had grilled honey mustard chicken stuffed with swiss cheese and onions (I made the recipe up and it turned out really good).  We also ate corn and spaghetti squash. 

After dinner we decided to go for our Sunday cruise.  We found ourselves this time in Fountain Hills just in time to see the
