1 month

Time flies when you're having fun, right? I guess so, because I can't believe it's been a month. We celebrated Katelynn's 1 month at my little brother's wedding. He got home from his mission in June, and his girlfriend (who they dated for two years in high school) waited for him. And 4 months later....BAM, married. How awesome is that? Anyways, I love the girl he married. They are so sweet together. At the end of their reception, they had a little dance and my little bro was crying and she was wiping his tears. So cute! You can tell he absolutely loves her and her him. Ahh, doesn't it remind you of your newlywed days? Here are some pics of our weekend....we forgot our camera 90% of the time, so actually just pictures of the wedding breakfast.

There's the bride and groom.

Chowin down!

There's me!

There's my dad!

My brother Shawn and Andee (who of course had chocolate on her face)

Katelynn at 1 month, she spent the weekend in that pose...sleeping. What a good little girl.

My mom and lil sis

It was such a fun weekend! Spending time with family, laughing most the time. My parents have a trampoline that Damon, JC, Kinny and I jumped on for about 2 hours. We played all the fun childhood games (crack the egg, dead man, dodge ball and duck-duck-goose) and just practicing old tricks. We talked my mom into getting on and playing with us. That was the highlight of it all. Watching her scream every time she jumped. Hilarious! She is a hoot. Damon loved the trampoline and I taught him how to do a few tricks. hmmmmm...what else....ya, pretty much just hanging out laughing and talking with everyone. Loved it! Glad we live closer and were able to attend their wedding.

Happy Birthday Tyler!

Friday was Ty's b-day. What can I say? I love Tyler and our family would be so empty without him. As soon as he walks through the door everyday, a smile lights up on everyone's face. It's the highlight of our day when daddy comes home. I decided to go all out for Ty's birthday and got ambitious. I got online on KSL and found him a weight set and over 200 lbs of weights for $120!!! Talk about a great deal. So I Ioaded all the kids up, drove to pick up the weights, got home unloaded each weight, the bench and accessories down to our extra bedroom, cleaned it up and then set it up. It took a good couple of hours (which wasn't easy with three kids), but I know how bad he wants to work out (has wanted to for the past 3 years). But, Tyler is worth it! We sure do love him. I even tried making a giraffe cake (Damon's idea), but it was really, really I tried not to get it in any pictures.

We had to light the candles with a blow torch because we didn't have matches.

Nothing too special, just hung out and enjoyed each other's company all night.

And of course, Katelynn slept through the whole ordeal!
