Zippity Zoo Katie's TWO!!!!!

So we celebrated Katie's birthday yesterday with a little party. It turned out to be a whole lot of fun.

I made a Monsters Inc. cake. I think it turned out pretty nice. Katie loved it.
After pizza for dinner we had a little treasure hunt. I threw toys and candy all over the yard and the kids scampered off to find them.
Katie is our little raccoon. She picks up things all of the time and won't put them down. So the treasure hunt was great for her.
Katie and her friend Sophia enjoying their spoils.
One of the toys in the treasure hunt were these glasses. It was funny to see them on the kids.
Katie loved the singing and blew out the candles on the first try. She better get her wish.
I could not believe all of the gifts that she received. She loves them, she has been playing with everything all morning long. I am sure she is excited to have something new to play with.
Thanks to everyone that came and all of the gifts were absolutely incredible.

We love Katie so much and can't believe how big she is getting. She isn't my baby anymore, she has officially hit childhood.

I've been tagged...

My sister in law Tiffani tagged me. This looks like a fun one. Hope you enjoy getting to know me. Scott will have to do one for himself .

Coming home from Girls camp for the first time. I had only been in Young Women's for about half a year. I was a seventh grader.

~Question #2: What's on your to-do list today (this list includes today and tomorrow morning's list)?

Laundry, Laundry and more laundry. You have got to love vacations. I cleaned the whole house before we left to come home and destroy it. Why have I not done it yet do you ask, easy...we left our kids for over a week and now they won't let me go. Any advice anyone? I think that they are scared to let me out of their sight.

~Question #3: What if you were a billionaire?

1. Pay off all debts.

2. Buy a house with a fence and a yard so we could get a dog for Scott

2. Go and see my parents...and travel all over the place

3. Buy a car for me so I don't have to walk everywhere...wait I like walking...we would get a gym pass

4. start cooking all sorts of fancy food because I don't have to worry about how much it costs

Universal Studios, Disneyland and Beaches oh my!

Well we are back from our "Babymoon" I guess you could call it. It was absolutely AMAZING!!! We started the vacation by dropping the kids off at Grandpa and Grandma Evans'...thanks again. And drove the ten hours to Los Angeles. Where we spent Sunday evening with Mark and Bekah. It was so good to see them and just chat. Monday morning came after the FIRST uninterrupted nights sleep since Paul was born. It felt so good to wake up when I wanted to. We were planning on going to Six Flags and drove all the way there only to learn that it was closed. So we decided on Universal Studios. It was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot too. Scott volunteered in one of the shows and he had the audience cracking up a few times. It was hilarious. Monday night we made it to Bobbi Mann's house. Scott baptized her on his mission, and she was nice enough to let us stay ALL week! Thanks Bobbi! Tuesday we went to the beach and I boogie boarded and swam in the ocean for the first time. I have to say I didn't like the taste of salt in my mouth but I loved everything else. Wednesday we spent the day touring part of Scott's mission. It was fun to put places and people with stories. Thursday we headed back to the beach and found all sorts of seashells and hermit crabs. Friday we went to Disneyland with Mark and Bekah and hit every ride we wanted to go on at least once. It was such a good week to go. I will say that they talked me into going on the Tower and Terror and it was FREAKY!!! I didn't enjoy that at all. Saturday we went to the LA temple and my old roommate just happened to be getting married. Then we watched the BYU blowout....GO COUGARS!!!! And headed back to Alpine to get our kids. Well Sunday we got in the car to go to church and found that the battery light was on in our car. Monday the car went to the shop and it ended up being a quite expensive fix! All is well that ends well though. The car works and the trip was a blast. I loved being alone with Scott for a long while.
