30 and 10

Soooo yeah. I turned 30 this past week. The day after Derrick and I had our 10 year anniversary! (What a week!) I have upgraded to contacts again :) and am very happy with being able to see without glasses on. Derrick took the family out to dinner on my birthday and the food was awesome.

I don't feel much different. I guess I am "mature" now. Maybe I thought I would get suddenly wise. Not feeling a lot of new brain cells...actually I still suffer from pregnancy brain:)

I know that this past 10 years have been amazing. We are blessed with 3 incredible boys and a LOT of memories. I wouldn't change this past 10 years for anything and am so greatful to my wonderful husband for treating me like a queen. I love you babe!

We are in the process of putting together a "First 10 years" scrapbook (Derrick's idea...awesome huh?) It has been so nice to remember all the wonderful times and craziness that we have experienced the past 10 years.


Levi really is enjoying gnawing on this carrot from our garden.
Turner loves carrots also!

We have gotten SOOOO many zucchini, squash, pumpkin, tomatoes, fresh basil, rosemary, beans, snow peas, and carrots.
I am so proud of our garden this year. Derrick, the boys and I worked really hard on it. Our labors were definitely fruitful (just ask Cameo and Lynn Johnson...they are helping eat all the zucchini and squash that my family just can't seem to get through. Thanks guys :) )
Derrick built me a couple of garden boxes this year and I love them. We are hoping to add another box next year.

Tony's baptism

"I felt so good when I was baptized," Tony said.

We had such a perfect day on September 5, 2009. Tony got baptized at 10am. Nana and Grandma gave wonderful talks. Papa and Grandpa were able to be witnesses and Derrick baptized and confirmed Tony. I am so proud of Tony and his decision to be baptized. We had a lot of friends come also to enjoy the day. Great-Grandma and Grandpa Williamson drove all the way from Ely, NV to see Tony and Ky and Shannon came up from Colorado Springs. Thank you for coming.

Afterwards we all pitched and had some wonderful food. I couldn't have asked for a better day.


Levi enjoying some food. :)

Levi is getting REALLY quick!

Tony's 8th birthday

We went to Eliches for Tony and Carter's (Tony's cousin) birthday. It was a lot of fun! Ky and Shannon brought up their family from Colorado Springs (Kyra, Kadence, and Carter) and we had an amazing day at the park.
Tony and Turner LOVE the swing :)
Tony, Turner, and Kadence fought their fear of the kiddie coaster and tried it out! Kyra and Carter have no fear.

This is the "little" version of the Tower of Doom!

After a fun day at the park, we came back and ordered some pizza and wings and had some birthday cake. Tony wanted brownies and icecream and Carter wanted some cool froggie cupcakes. It was awesome.

Turner's 4th birthday

Turner wanted a dirt cake this year. Looks yummy! Xander is in the background ready to eat cake!
Tony facing off with Mom at the waterfight!

Water fight!

Say Cheese Tony!

Turner loves the turtle.

Tony did an amazing job on his recital :) He is getting really good at the piano.
