Claire is 10 months old

We can't believe how fast time has gone by since Claire has joined our family. Life is so much fun with her in it.

What she says:
Wha Sa - What's that, we think??
And just today I asked her if she wanted an animal cookie and she said "cook"

Her favorite songs:
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree
You are my sunshine

What she has done lately:
Threw a package of toilet paper in the bathtub while it was filling with water.
Got stuck under our bed.
She takes four steps all the time now.

Luke's Birthday

Luke's birthday was last week and I had so much fun making his birthday cake. (Birthday cake ideas on parenting.com) He didn't really want to do anything for his birthday but we did get tickets to a play in Salt Lake at the Desert Star Theater. We went and saw 'Home School Musical' and laughed so hard.

Valentines Day!!

The night before Valentines Day Luke was wanting to give me my Valentines present...He is like a little kid that can't wait. Every holiday is like this and I never give in to him but this time I did. Okay, so maybe the only reason I gave in was because I wanted to start reading the book that I knew he was giving me. He also gave me some beautiful red roses. Then for Luke I had made a scavenger hunt and he had to follow the clues in order to get his present....another series of Friends.

While Luke and Claire were out buying my roses, Luke found a fake rose for Claire. He also got her 'The Little Mermaid' for Valentines Day.

My newest hobby....even though I'm not very good at it

I have always wanted to take a cake decorating class but would talk myself out of it. Then for my New Years resolution I decided that I was going to start doing all the things that I keep putting off and just go for it. The class has been so much fun even though I am really bad at it. I just hope to get good enough to make Claire and other kids we may have cute birthday cakes. The heart cake was week two, cupcakes were week three, and the flower cake was week four.
