Fast Forward

Ok I swear someone pushed a fast forward button & Dax is now 3 months old! He loves to suck on his hands and sometimes gets his thumb in his mouth! He recognizes all our faces and smiles whenever we talk to him and will even talk back! He loves to watch the fan spin in our room! He's still pretty demanding but is getting better about laying by himself for small amounts of time! We all adore this little boy with his chubby cheeks & double chin, he gets funner everyday!

Heart Words!

At the beginning of the year Mrs. Hammons challenged the kids to memorize 10 lists of heart words and those that made it she would take them to the scoop for an ice cream!! Every Friday they had to read a list and if they passed it off they would get the next list! Degan worked really hard going over his heart words every night and was so excited when he got list 10 and passed it off! He had them memorized so good that we could ask him what was on list #1 or #3 and he could tell us without looking at the paper what was on each of the lists! Today he got to meet Mrs. Hammons at Maverick and walk to the Scoop to get his ice cream!! and than he challenged everyone to a dance off in the middle of the street and apparently he won! Degan has learned a lot this year and we are so proud of him and how hard he worked to get an ice cream!

He Sleeps With Me!!
He Cleans With Me!!
Daxton basically does everything with me!! he is so spoiled all he has to do is cry just a little and everyone swarms him to cheer him up! And if I try to let him cry it out he is so stubborn he won't stop crying until you pick him up!! So to keep the peace I tote him around and try to get things done!!

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater

Dillon has been taking piano lessons for over a year now from the lovely Miss Joshlyn! He had his first recital and played Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, he worked hard to memorize his piece and didn't mess up! He even bowed when he was done(which everybody loved) cause Darin bribed him with a toy! We are so proud of you Dillon, you have made good progress and can't wait for the next recital!!

Just a swingin'

Dax has FINALLY decided that he likes his swing!! He likes it even more when his brothers push him as fast as it will go! His eyes get really big and he smiles and squells in delight (or fear?)whatever it is I'm glad he changed his mind and likes it now!!
P.S. he only liked it for a week and now hates it even more!!

The Race Is On!!

Dillon had his pinewood derby last saturday! He did good and placed 1st, 3rd, 2nd, 1st!! Even though he didn't make it to the stake races he was happy with his two first place races and had fun building his car!!

So Blessed


We blessed Dax at home yesterday, I spoke to the bishop & got everything set up and invited the fam to join us! 5:45 rolls around and everyone's here except a member of the bishopric, we tried to call but nobody would answer so I tried the bishop's cell and he answered! But had forgotten to send somebody over to our house, I mentioned that my brother-in-law was in the bishopric in mesquite and he said that was good enough and to go ahead with the blessing! Dad gave you a nice blessing, then we ate, visited and passed you around!!
