Choo-Choo Two Years Old

I still can't believe that Walter is already two years old. We had a simple family birthday, but Walter knew that it was his special day. We started the day with a big breakfast and he got to open his gifts.

I just love his face- he looks so happy and so excited.

After breakfast we got ready for the day. This year both the boys got birthday shirts. I used the 90 minute shirt pattern from MADE. Then we went to playgroup and just had fun the rest of the day.

Walter loves pulled BBQ meat, so for his dinner I made him southwestern pulled pork. Here he is sitting at the table, already helping himself.

For dessert I made him a cake in the shape of a Train. He loves to play with trains, so it seemed like the perfect thing to do.

We love you Walter!!

P.S. At his two year appointment I asked the doctor if his blue eyes were here to stay since he still has them at the age of two. YES!!! Who would have thought that I would have a blue eyed boy.

Today during Sharing time, they were talking about Joseph Smith and how he translated the Book of Mormon. All of a sudden Hunter stood up extended his arm pointing his index finger towards the ceiling and said,
"According to my calculations the Book of Mormon is true"

Don't know what those calculations may have been, but it brought a big smile to my face

We celebrated Easter in Utah with Weston's family. The kids love going to Utah, because they love playing with their cousins. Weston got Good Friday off, so we drove to Utah on Thursday night. We left sunny Las Vegas and got to Provo just before it started snowing again. Luckily Sharman had emailed me during the week to inform me to bring our winter clothes. On Friday we went up to campus to buy the boys BYU shirts and to have lunch with our favorite babysitter Brittany. We have missed Brittany so much since she started BYU. It was so cute, when Hunter saw her he ran up to her and said, "Brittany, where have you been?" There were times that he would ask me when Brittany was going to come and play. I forgot to bring my camera for lunch, so this is a really old picture of Brittany and the boys.

Then we went to Andrea's house to play. Hunter and Walter get along really well with the cousins, it's so nice that they are so close in age. On Saturday had our Sunrise Service and went to McDonalds for breakfast. When we returned to Grandma and Grandpa's house we looked for our Easter baskets.

On Sunday we watched General Conference and had a delicious Easter Brunch.

The following Sunday the kids wore their new Easter outfits and I wore my new Easter dress. This year I decided to make my own, I wanted it to match the boys outfits. I think it turned out o.k.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.
