Jana, Orion and Shay's Birthdays!

Our little princess turned 1 on July 2nd! Jana is an angel. She is a girly girl! Her new favorite thing is shoes. She constantly brings them to me and then sticks her foot in the air. She loves dolls. She has a very sweet personality. Sometimes she just runs to me and hugs me and then walks away. She is shy with strangers. She will hide behind my legs and peek out and look at them. She brings so much joy to our family. We are so thankful to have her!

Uncle Shon bought her a whale pool.

Corbin and cousin, Devon.

Jana didn't want to blow out her candles...she just wanted to eat the cake!

Daddy helped her.

This is what happens when daddy walks by and doesn't pick her up....and the dress she is wearing she got for her birthday. Cute huh?

She will just stand there and scream until he comes back and gets her.

Sometimes she will start charging at him. It is so funny. She loves him sooo much!

All better...whew!

She had a princess cake.

Dolls, dolls, and more dolls! I love it!

Her first bite of her birthday cake.

Wish this picture was more clear. She has such a sweet smile!

Her mouth is full...look at those cheeks!

Orion turned 12! He is so amazing. I'm not sure what I would do with out him. He helps me out so much! He received the Aronic Priesthood and past the sacrament for the first time 2 weeks ago. He attended his first Stake Priesthood meeting last night. Last week we got a call from the Stake Presidency asking if he could give the opening prayer for this meeting. He wasn't even nervous. He studied all day about the Priesthood so he'd be more prepared. I'm so thankful that he is the oldest boy in our family. He is an amazing example and a good person. He is always a friend to those who need one. He has a special gift in making people feel welcomed and loved. He is very obedient and loves to serve. What a outstanding young man he is becoming!
Happy birthday Orion!

He had an Oreo cake. He loves oreos and his friends at school nick named him Oreo.

Everyone was acting so silly at Shay's birthday party. Our house was out of control!

Titan got Shay this jersey. Titan is playing football and this is his team jersey. It has his number , 76 and his last name. Shay loved it! Shay's number in high school was 76 too!

Look at my kids in these pictures! No more chocolate cake for them!

Happy birthday love! Shay has been working so hard lately... I was so happy he had his birthday off. He is a great example to our boys. They have learned to work hard for things they want because of him. His little princess has him wrapped around her fingers. She loves to be around him, as most people do... He has a great sense of humor. We were able to make his favorite dinner, crab and mashed potatoes. And then chocolate cake!
We have many birthdays in July, Aug. and Sep... so I will be posting again soon!
