my little helper

Porter loves to play in the dishwasher.  Putting away the silverware is a perfect job for him.  He thinks so too.

I know that it might seem that I am dead, but I am not!! Yay!  I am slowing coming back to life!  I had a VERY busy past few weeks!  Including: planning, buying, calling, and putting together all the food for our school carnival (will never do that again!) shooting a wedding, getting ready for and shooting my mini Easter shoot, taking care of a sick kid, and taking care of a whole herd of farm animals (just a few chicks and a bunny, but it felt like a lot more)! and that was just ONE weekend!!!!  I am now neck deep in editing!  Thank goodness for chocolate and skittles!  They never fail me on these late nights!  I have some really cute pictures from my Easter shoots.  I will post them soon.  In the mean time you know where I will on my computer..... editing, and editing!

Caleb's Baptism

It was so nice to see our family for this special occasion.  Caleb felt so loved!  His baptism day went really smooth.  We played the video and Hannah gave a great talk on baptism.  Kurtis baptized Caleb and all went well, no feet popped up or anything.  It was perfect.  We could not be happier parents! 

Caleb wanted to go eat at all you can eat pizza after the baptism.  Everyone ate until we wanted to burst!

Here is the program I designed.  I love the way it turned out!

For my birthday boy

I know that I have been slow to get these posted.  I have finally gotten around to looking at them!  Caleb had such a fun birthday.  He partied all day long! 

 It is tridtion in out house for the birthday kiddo to wake up to a birthday poster on their door and balloons.  I had fun drawing Caleb's...can you tell?  He loved it!  He asked for pancakes for breakfast.  There were so yummy.  I love birthdays!

I brought cupcakes for Caleb's class and then surprised him and took him to lunch and his favorite restaurant, Jimmy Johns. (gotta love the food in his mouth!)  He has been known to eat 2 whole sandwiches!! The boy can pound those things! 

That night we had a party at Chuck E Cheese.  It was really fun for the for Kurtis and I.....we may not ever do it again. :)  (At least until I get talked into it for the next birthday!)

I make Caleb "better than......uh birthday cake" birthday cake.  It was so good!  Don't judge me by my cake decorating skills please!!  Caleb loved it, and that is all that matters, right?! 

Caleb had a really good birthday.  He got so many phone calls, cards and gifts from family members and friends.  We are blessed to have so many people love our family!  Thanks to all of you who sent cards in the mail. He felt really special. 

I asked Caleb to hold up his favorite gift.  Of course it was the nerf gun.  Ever since he got that thing we have been playing a game called "deer".  It is where the kids run all over the house(like deer) and I try to shoot them! They get points if I miss and I get points if I hit them!  It is so much fun!!! 

I am a proud mama.  He is such a good boy!  I love you Caleb!!!
