some cuteness.

We had some cuteness happening here the other day.

Involving him:

Booker's class has been working on some musical performances for a program they did last night.  He had 2 performances yesterday..one in the morning for the school and one at night for the parents.  He was overly excited before going to school and when I went to pick him up he was BEAMING! I asked, "Booker, how did your performance go?"  His reply was simply, "Mom, I rocked everybody and tonight I am going to rock you too!" Love him. Love that he loves to sing. And play rockstar. And rock everyone..even when they are singing about freedom and being an american. LOVE. IT.

follow-up

After talking to one of my friends the other night, I figured I had better put a quick follow up picture of Lincoln's nose since I left you with such horrible pictures last time.



He looks pretty great, I'd say. Now all we have left is Mederma + band-aids for the next 3-4 months so the sun doesn't make that scar permanent! Kind of a hard task when you live in one of the hottest places in the US!:) Oh well, I'm not complaining because his nose doesn't look like 2 posts down!:)ha!

another fun day...no, really.


We love Saturdays for more than one reason.  We love having Ben home for the day, and the spring is just beautiful here.  Last Saturday we took advantage of a really fun canyon only 15 minutes from our place.  Red Rock Canyon is just a short drive but has a ton of family friendly hikes and places galore for little kids to explore. IT WAS AWESOME.

see for yourself:

 
Yep, he was that hot.:)

We love being able to pack Maizie along..she loves to hike around.
 
It really was a fun day...Booker rated it like this:

boys, boys, boys.

Do you remember when this happened. 
Yep, I do too, only because it was ONE MONTH AGO!


Fast forward a month to see a little boy on his scooter..he falls and his nose catches on the scooter's handle and rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrip...and scream, i run in time to see his nose bleeding.  I look closer and touch it to see how bad it is and the whole nose comes apart.  Okay, this is bad.  I call Ben, (once again so greatful he is 30 seconds away) and ask him to come quick.  5 1/2 hours later, 6 stitches later..I get delivered a happy boy:

well, as happy as you can be!

the damage:


And all this time we thought it would be Booker that followed in his dads ER king footsteps.  I think we were wrong!:)  Man, I love this kid!

a weekend jaunt.

Last weekend we took a short trip up to Utah to visit some family we haven't seen in forever.  It was such a fun weekend filled with...

crazy hair,
bonding time,
 
structural engineering,
conch blowing,

CrAzY boys,

but mostly SWEET smiles and hugs.
We really need to do that more often.
Drew and Melinda, you ready for us again?!haha.:)

then and now.

Today I had a chance to download some pictures from another camera we have, and found these pictures on it from a year ago.  SO many memories came flooding back in an instant..I love that we have pictures, just for that reason.



So many things about this picture make me smile..Booker's outfit.  That tie and coat were a staple in Ohio..and I loved it! Lincoln's face. Whoa, he has changed so much to me..and his outfit..yikes. I hope he dressed himself.


This walking path holds so many awesome memories for me.
Playing on "the hill" after the walk.


This was Booker to a T the whole time we were there. There wasn't a moment we went walking that he not only found a stick to hold, but a TREE as well!

Yikes! Was she ever this small?
Because this is her favorite activity now..

well, that, and looking cute.
and one year later, here we are...
All grown up, thinned out (well, most of us!), and happy. 
I can't wait to sit and see the difference next year!
Happy Easter!
