Happy 17th Birthday Auntie Samantha!

Today we celebrated Auntie Sammy's 17th Birthday. We wish you a great 17th year!!!

Happy Easter 2009

What a beautiful day! The Easter Bunny made a trail leading from Cole's room to his Easter Basket! Paul and I throughly enjoyed watching our son on his first Easter - tear apart his Easter basket with curiosity and excitement.



We attended 12pm Mass at our church.. headed home, and did another Easter egg hunt with Jackson.. where again we enjoyed watching the boys go from egg to egg.. exploring the taste of candy and grass. haha.





Brianne and I made a tasteful turkey dinner, and of course set the table beautifully. We were able to use Grandma Anderson's china, a couple of my Mom's serving platters, Grandma and Grandpa Wilkins' silver pieces, and mine and Paul's silver-ware that my Dad and Tara gave us for our wedding.. all for the first time in our home! As we ate, we whole heartedly gave many thanks for our health, happiness, and great friends! Boy are we blessed.

Working Out With My Uncle Jon!

Cole already idolized his brave Uncle Jon!!! Maybe a future Marine???? We will see :)

Check Out My New Toy!

No More Crying!!!!



Reed and Cole have finally realized that they can be eachother's friend, and not scream at one another!

Pool Time!




It was March 25th 2008 - I was 20 weeks pregnant with Cole. I went swimming, and as soon as my tummy was submerged in the water, Cole kicked. I rubbed my belly and told him " ahhh! Your going to be a water baby!" Of course I wrote it in my pregnancy book that day.

A year later, Cole is now 7 months old. We went swimming - and he LOVES the water. I can't wait until we start swimming lessons!

Happy Birthday MiMi

We celebrated Grandma Tara's Birthday by a good night filled with good food, and karaoke! It was much fun. Happy Birthday MiMi!

Jon, Jess, and Ollie have been in town for a couple of weeks, so we have been able to spend a little more time with them then usual. Here are some pictures of the kids enjoying one another!


Girls Night Out



I had a great time with my best girls on Friday night. We started off with sushi, and danced the night away at a club called "The Shore." We were all able to get in some good quality girl time that was much needed :)

Lovin Ben!
