Maya's 7th Birthday

A little less than a month ago we celebrated our favorite little girls 7th birthday. Maya who's favorite word is BUTTERCREAM had a Cake Boss birthday. We spent the day swimming in Nana and Grampy's pool, and she even got to invite her friend Abby over. We played and had dinner then I pretended to be a Cake Boss client and ordered an owl cake. The above cupcake creation is what the little chefs came up with. Then they each made their own owls nest piled so high with candy I wondered weather they'd ever calm down. It was a great day for a great little girl. I'm so happy to have Maya in our family. She is truly unique and I'm grateful every day to know her.

Enders Baby Blessing

On Sunday the 22nd we blessed baby Ender in church. Casey blessed him and Grampy, Tim, Brad, and Steven stood in the circle. Casey gave him a beautiful blessing in which Ender was told he had chosen to come to our family and he would be a missionary to his friends even before being called as a missionary. I wish I could remember more of his blessing but his siblings were being distracting (whats new). Even at that just know you are loved a bunch Ender! My sister in law Jessica was brave enough to attempt to photograph our family and given the conditions the pic turned out really well.

We had a fun and exciting Easter. Not...I slept in and by the time I woke up the kids had already found their baskets and were all sugared up. Casey and the kids decorated eggs and we headed off to church.

I must say the boys were stinkin' adorable in the suits Grammy and Poppy sent them from Peru. I can't get enough of Miles in his suit. I just think it's the cutest little thing ever!
