An Aunt Again

He is here! Baby Adam was born at 3:04 in Utah to Greg and Jess. He was 7 lbs and 20.5 inches long. Mom and baby are doing great.

The proud big brother!

My mom is there for the birth and is helping take care of Dylan. I told her to give him a squeeze from us as he just got his world turned upside down (in a good way).

Congrats Greg, Jess, and Dylan! Welcome to your life baby Adam. Your CA family loves you already.

More baby love. . .

This one is my favorite!

Sept 05 vs March 08

There are 2 years and 6 months between these pics. They have changed so much! I wonder what a pic 2 1/2 years from now will look like?

Easter Target pics

When Dorothy was here we took the kids to Target to get their pictures taken in their Easter attire. I love my Target portrait studio! Here is what they got this time.

Wes in Class

We had a real rough patch with Wes and school for awhile, but maybe we have turned a corner. Here he is working and doing a great job. Lets hope this is an upward trend of good behavior. Fingers crossed everyone!

1st grade dioramas

Kylie had to make a habitat diorama for her open house. Her's and her best friend's were practically identical, so funny! Check out how good she did with this project.

Disneyland with the Grandmas

Earlier this month we all went to Disneyland for a fun time. It was more crowded than I would have guessed, but we stayed for a long time and really enjoyed ourselves.

Kylie and I started out the day by riding Space Mountain together. She was so excited, I was a little nervous!

Waiting in line for Alice.

All 4 kids!

We went on several more rides (including the Pooh ride while the girls went on Splash Mountain) then headed over to the Aladdin show. Earlier in the day Kylie said, "Weston, I will help you get on the show. I'll show you where to sit and how to raise you hand."

When we got in the stage area the kids sat down in front in "the spot." Sure enough Wes got picked! It was so funny to me that they had talked about it earlier and then it really happened.

Here are some pics of Wes being a guard (and one from the Pooh ride).

After the show we went to CA Adventure. We got there just as the HS Musical show was starting the kids liked it but Kylie wanted to know where the real cast members were. She wasn't satisfied with this rendition.

School Foundation District Award Night

A few weeks ago Kylie brought a letter home that said she was being honored with an award and the presentation was on a certain night at the local junior high. We didn't know what it was all about but were still pretty excited that she was getting honored. Grandma Dot was here visiting and we had Grandma Holly, Grandpa Gene, and Aunt Julie (Uncle Dustin was at school) come with us all to the awards ceremony.

We realized when we got there that one child per class per grade level is selected by their teacher as the outstanding student/citizen of their class. What an honor! We are so proud of our girl. She loves school and her teacher can see that in her.

Thank you Kylie for making me proud to be your mom! I feel very priveledged to have you as my daughter. I love you!

Kylie with Officer/Brother/Mister/Board Member Bridgewaters. He presented her award to her. He just happens to be a family friend and we got a picture before the ceremony started.

We came straight from taking pictures at Target so the girls are matchy matchy. Payton was excited to be at sister's award.

I think Kylie was way more EXCITED though. Look at that smile. We sat right behind her teacher and I think that hyped her up a little too.

All the Eastwood kids with their principal, Mrs. Brush.

Kylie with her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Reed. We love Mrs. Reed!

I am so proud of you sweetheart! I hope you continue to love learning.

I've been told that some babies don't like the grass. I never had one of those babies, until Wade! Check out these pics! He hates the grass. Its really funny. I even took a little video. I'm not a nice mom, letting my poor boy just sry, lol.

The nice thing is that he will stay on the trampoline or the blanket at soccer. He won't venture on to the grass! I wonder how long this will last.

Posted in honor of St. Patrick's Day and shamrocks. See all of them in my grass!
