Nick's 2 years old!

I can't believe that Nick just turned 2! That means that we have now been in Idaho for 2 years also! Time has sure been flying for us here and we have been enjoying the ride.

We had a small family party for Nick and invited over a few of our friends to have some pizza, cake and ice cream. Nick was sure happy to play with the kids.

A little fun fact about Nick- He loves sports. It's weird since his mommy and daddy aren't exactly sporty people, but Nick seems to be. He loves football and basketball and has to have any type of ball that he finds.

Here he is getting ready for his party!

His basketball and baseball cupcakes!

And his football cake!

and ejoying his new toys!

Happy Birthday Baby boy, I love you so much!

Daddy daughter Ball

When it was announced a few weeks ago that our ward was doing a Daddy Daughter Ball, Bailey was so excited to go. She has talked about this to everyone...including a sales lady at Ross who heard every detail about the ball that Bailey was going to with her daddy. She found the perfect dress, asked mommy if she could wear her wedding tiara, and helped daddy make the perfect dessert. Daddy also took her to dinner beforehand and Bailey got her favorite, cheese enchiladas.

Here is my princess all ready for the ball...

Her and matching daddy

And...a few after pictures...a little worn out

And Tired!

Trent said that Bailey had a blast and even got him on the dance floor to boogy with her a bit!

Meet Bentley

This is Bentley. We have had him for about a month, but have been hesitant to introduce him to everyone. We have had a few dogs since being married, but they haven't worked out so well (probably because we were living in an apartment), so Trent wanted to make sure that we were going to keep him before showing him to anyone. The kids absolutely love him...but I will admit that potty training is a pain. He is doing well, but even accidents still drive me crazy. He is a great little guy and has such a fun personality...and it is nice to have another dog around since Miss Molly passed away.

Strawberry Shortcake

Bailey wanted to have a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party this year. I said that she could invite just a few friends, have a few games and some cupcakes. Nothing big or crazy this year, just a small simple party.

Her friends enjoyed helping her open presents and playing with them

All the kids decided to play dress up at the end and had a blast- we even have boy dress up!

Happy 4th Birthday Bailey, we sure love you!

Bailey turned four yesterday! She was able to have a Strawberry shortcake birthday party on Saturday with a few friends...(pictures later) Yesterday we all got to go to Chuck e Cheese. Bailey and her friend Lexi share the same birthday and Lexi invited us to chuck e cheese for pizza and games. The kids had a blast and Bailey was in heaven all weekend. Here are a few birthday pictures.

Krispy Kreme

Today Bailey's preschool class took a field trip to Krispy Kreme. The kids had a great time and really enjoyed the hot fresh doughnuts they got! Nick was happy to tag along and be with the big kids.
