Great Grandma Verna Visits!

This week my uncle Doug had to come to Denver for business, so he decided to drive and bring along my Grandma Verna! After meeting up with "Uncle Doug", Jack continued to call him "Grandpa Dougie, like Duckie, Quack, Quack Quack", the rest of the drive home. Then today when I drove Grandma back to him, Jack asked me, "Great Grandma go home with Grandpa Duckie???". Funny what he comes up with!

While Grandma was here we headed down to Garden of the Gods and enjoyed a nice hike. At one point Jack stopped listening and decided to run and, "hide in the cave", and I got to make a fool of myself running to catch him.
We also got to spend a day with Britt and Bri. Of course the day included some wonderful ice cream, which the boys loved!

Jackson also put on a "Glow Stick Dance Party" for Grandma and got to show her all his moves.
Lastly, he really enjoyed showing off his cowboy duds, he is confident that with his stick horse and rubber cowboy boots that he is a cowboy.
It was so nice to get to spend a couple of days with my Grandma here. Hopefully next time she can come back for even longer!

Babies Galore!

Some family of good friends is raising a foster baby named Solledad, and even though she is in the foster system, we wanted to be sure that she had a 1st Birthday Party to top all others, so a dance/princess/bubble party was in order! The kids had an outstanding time, and we ended up having 5 babies within 5 weeks of each other there! So I introduce (from left to right): Mason, Solledad, Owen, Noah, and Leah.

Mason also LOVED his party favors. Who knew a baby could have so much fun with a bucket of favors!

Our Proud Little Walker!

A couple days ago Matt took a few great videos of Mase and his new walking skills, I think you'll enjoy them! There are links to all three on the sidebar titled "Mase walking 1, 2, and 3".

Matt's Cake

Last week I came home from work, and to my surprise found a homemade cake on the counter! Our snack/treat supply was slim pickin's and Matt decided to bake a cake! It was actually really good too. Such a homemaker!

Mase is walking!

Mason is a walker! This morning he let go of the couch and took 1 step, I called Matt and told him to hurry home, and sure enough minutes after Matt walked in the door Mason started walking! Here are a few videos of the excitement!

Happy May Day!

Happy May Day!!! As a kid I loved May 1st because it was an excuse to bake cookies for our neighbors, and deliver them throughout the neighborhood. At 21, I found a new love for May day when Matt took me on our very first date on May Day. When I greeted him at my door with a plate full of "May Day Cookies", he had no clue what the holiday was, or what the point of the cookies was. Now, 5 years later Matt was the first one to say, "Happy May Day!" to me!!!
