Stockton's Family Birthday Party

Here are some more pictures from Stockton's family party last night. We had lots of family attend which we are so LUCKY to have such a great family. Uncle Gary, Shane, and Monae were up from Last Vegas it was so fun to be able to see them. Tisha also made Stockton a wolf cake for today after making all of the cupcakes for his friends party. Stockton wanted a wolf howling at a moon for his cake as well so Tisha made his wish come true. Thanks a million Tisha it turned out AMAZING. Stockton got a remote control plane, cross stitch, legos, signed football by Bronco Mendenhall, and money he is one spoiled boy. He is growing up so fast I can't believe how fast time goes by. It really does seem like just yesterday when he was born. He was the most beautiful baby and so sweet as a toddler and just as sweet as he is getting older. I wanted to write him a little letter for his birthday.


You are such a sweetie. You are always thinking of others and nothing is more important to you than your family and friends. You are so protective of those who mean the most to you which reminds me of your dad you're so much like him and that's why I love you so much. I am so grateful that you have so many of his qualities. You're always so good to your sisters and they love you so much. I wish that you would stop growing up so fast you have such a fun little spirit and everyone loves to be around you.

Love you tons,

Photo Shoot

Addie was asked to be in a photo shoot with a great photographer that I believe is from California this past summer. He sales his prints to companies for their advertising. He did a great job here is a few pictures from the shoot. I just love the one of them laughing it just shows how innocent and precious they really are. They had such a fun time and we were so lucky to be asked to have Addie in them. What a fun opportunity for her. The shoot took over 3 hours but the girls didn't mind it was just a bonus for them to be able to be together longer because for some reason 13 hours a week at dance is just not enough I guess?

Stockton's 10th Birthday Party

One party down 3 to go! Stockton had his friend birthday party tonight. We went to Jack and Jill for bowling, laser tag, and arcade games. Afterwards we came home for pizza and the CUTEST CUPCAKES EVER made by my bestest friend Tisha. Stockton told Tisha that he wanted a wolf howling to a moon for his cake so Tisha made these little cupckaes howling to a moon in a tree. SOOOO Creative I wished I had just half of her creativity. The boys had a sleepover where they played "The Madden Bowl" Aaron made up brackets on a poster board. There was a cash prize for the winner so this was a very serious and competitive event. Stockton ended up wining the WHOLE tournament. Aaron had to wake up at 7 a.m. the next morning for a fire training and when he came up to get dressed (he slept all night on the couch) he said last night was PURE he!*the boys stayed up ALL night. They tried sneaking out at about 4 a.m. luckly Aaron woke up and told them they better not sneak out and reminded them that we have an alarm system that will go off (this thing is going to be a life saver in a few more years. However, I guess we are already there) The next morning they all woke up at about 9 a.m. (these kids NEVER sleep) and not one of them wanted to go home so I let them play a game of football outside and then took them all home. Stockton had a great birthday with all of his best buddies.

We finally were able to get our family pictures done. Shannon was so patient with me trying to find a time that worked with both of our schedules only took about 3 weeks and about 4 last minute cancellation so I owe Shannon BIG time. The day turned out to be beautiful. However, towards the end of the shoot it started to get a little cold for Paisley and Brightyn poor little Paisley nose ran the entire time or she was spitting up I bet we wiped her mouth and nose over 30 times. But they turned out darling. So excited to make our Christmas cards this year. At the end of the shoot we had 2 horses and a lama come up to us. As we were leaving I look back to make sure that the kids weren't being attacked and Addie is petting one of the horses so Shannon started snapping away which is absolutely PERFECT for Addie she is going to LOVE these pictures. May even have to blow it up and put it in her room (she just loves horses she asks me a couple times a week if we can buy her one and when I ask her where we would keep it she says in the backyard with Mick.) This girl is meant to live on a farm and she is so NOT even close to the farm life. I think we need to start spending a lot more time at Uncle Ron's.
I HAD to have a couch for this years pictures and I am so glad that I did. I love how this turned out. You should have seen the look on Aaron's face when I told him that we would be using a couch this year. He looked at me as if I had now really lost my mind.
