My Little Artist

I love the ninja dude getting ready to slay the dragon!!
Another one of my favorites!!
Dillon has always loved to paint, color, and draw. His favorite class in school is art and he thinks Mr. Brill is "hilarious"  Lately he has been getting some how to draw books at the library, and they are fairly simple and basic, so this last week he picked out a book on how to draw dragons and it looked really hard, needless to say I had my doubts that he would be able to produce anything that resembled a picture in the book but as you can see I was so wrong!! I've enjoyed watching him over the years go from drawing cute little stick figures to cool things like this and I can't wait to see what my little artist will be drawing eight years from now!

The Big Day!!

Best Day Ever!!
Wow look at all those people!!
 Dear Dillon,
     What a special day yesterday was and to get to share it with your cousin/best friend! How lucky are you? It was pure torture for you to have to wait around until 4:00p.m, but all that waiting was definatly worth it, I think you rather enjoyed your baptism day and being the center of attention! You are lucky to have such a wonderful family and to have so many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends & Grandparents that love you and wanted to be here to witness yours & Bailee's baptism. I noticed you smiled a lot and I hope that was because you were happy that you decided to be baptized. Dad was a little nervous but did an amazing job and I too hope that you do stay close to your Heavenly Father and gain a strong testimony. Aunt Bonnie talked about the Holy Ghost and the importance of listening to the still small voice. I hope you always remember this day and know how much Dad & I Love You.----Mom

Dillon & Bailee


Dillon and Bailee's friendship started at Granny & PaPa's house back in 2007 when the Andrew family moved back from Pennsylvania and we were living there while we were building our house. They became instant buddies playing, watching movies, and going to preschool together!! They have always gotten along really good and enjoy spending time together, especially having sleepovers!! I really hope their friendship will last a lifetime!!

The Banana Split!!

Degan's name!!
Enjoying his banana split!!
 Soon after Degan started preschool Darin made a deal with him that as soon as he learned how to write his name all by himself he'd go get him a banana split!! After lots of work on that darn "e" in his name he finally earned his sweet treat! We are so proud of you!!
