Kayla blowing out the candles

everyone was trying to get in the pic, that is what is going on in the back ground.

Kaylas 17th Birthday!!!!!

Last Tuesday was my sister Kaylas birthday, instead of a gift she just wanted the family to go out to dinner together. So saturday night all of us (except Kyle who is still in Philidelphia) went to Iggys for dinner, we had a really good time and Amy was able to come because she got home the night before. After ward we came back to our house and had cake and ice cream. I tried to make a checker board cake. I found the recipe online and even went and bought the special pan for it. the recipe I found online for the cake did not have enough batter for three round cake pans so it only made two round cake pans so instead of a checker board cake we just had a chocolate cake with a yellow cake stripe down the middle. I plan to try again with this cake and when I do I will post a pic of how it is supposed to look.

WELL KIND OF..... these were not her very first steps, but the first I was able to get on video, everytime she does it when I am not looking Mickey informs me that she is " taking walks by herself" he gets just as excited about it as Jason and I do, but not in this video, he mostly just wanted to be in the video.
.....did anyone notice her cute little belly?

Standing tall!

this post is a little late but i wanted EVERYONE to see how she is growing and learning. this is her when she figured out how to stand up by herslef without holding on to anything, it is quite a big step for her and for the rest of us. Mickey always says, " mom she is standing up by herself, come see! I didnt quite catch it on tape like I should have.

When I put my fourth of july slide show up it made all my little extra things on the side of my blog go to the bottom of the blog. I have tried deleting the slide show and the post. I have tried getting a new layout and background, still it remains at the bottom. its fine i guess but i really like the way it looks on the side. any one have any suggestions?

last friday my mother in law, Kaylene, took my sister in law, Holly, and their cousin Chelsea and myself to the Martina McBride concert at the Usana Ampitheatre. We met Kaylenes sister Kelly and her son C.J. there, it was a lot of fun, the perfect little party to say good bye to Holly for a while. She and her husband Steve are moving to Ohio for Steves school for the next four years. they will be greatly missed, not only by me, but of course Jason, he and Holly have always been close and he really likes Steve and his sense of Humor. Also I know Mic and Dee will miss them greatly too, they have helped out so much with the kids and have been a great influence on them. Thanks you guys for everything, you will truly be missed.

happy happy birthday! happy happy birthday!

Our Precious little Dalli, turned one on Sunday, we had the whole family over, well all but Kyle, Amy and Steve who are all back east at the time, and who we miss very much. thanks to everyone for coning and for the gifts! We have already put the cute piglet stroller to good use that grama juwee gave her and the cute sipper cups she got. I cant wait till fall so she can wear her new outfit grama torg gave her and, my favorite, the hoodie Aunt Megan gave her. Dees favorite gift was the little truck (as mickey calls it) that plays music and lights up and that she can sit on and push around. Unfortunately it is Mickeys favorite toy too.
blogger is not letting me add images now so i will put pics up later.
