Dear Weston...

We love you so much. You already make us laugh and your smiles are so cute. Your older brother would do anything for you. You especially love his hugs and kisses. You smile for him anytime, anywhere. Your snuggles are to die for, and you are finding your voice-so sweet.

But please do us this one favor. Please stop growing so quickly. It seems like just yesterday you were teeny tiny. But you've already grown so much. Please slow down, for heavens sake you just got here.

Love, Mom and Dad

Colds and a new Wii

We have all been sick for the last few weeks. Tommy took Ashton to the e.r. last night because of his 103.9 fever. Luckily everything is ok, and he just has a bad cold. We bought a Wii this weekend and are glad that we did, because of all the time spent at home with our sicknesess.

Tommy bought a new snowboarding helmet a few weeks ago, and Ashton had fun with it. I'm so glad that Tommy wears a helmet when snowboarding because when we start Ashton snowboarding next year, he'll want to wear one too (hopefully).

Ashton is obsessed with TRUCKS! He has so many, and plays with them everyday. Last week Tommy took Ashton to the store when I was sick and came home with this. It's a radio flyer car, but to Ashton it's a truck. He loves getting in it and driving it around. It even has a radio and blinkers. Weston goes for a ride with him from time to time. I think next we'll be getting him real power wheels truck!

We blessed Weston a few weeks ago, and it was such beautiful day. Weston wore the same blessing outfit that Ashton wore, and looked just as cute. Thank you to everyone who made it so special, and traveled near and far to be with our family. Also a big thanks to Kristie for once again capturing this day for us so beautifully. Your pictures are amazing and we are so thankful for you not only coming to the blessing, but for taking all of the pictures! Enjoy everyone!

We were heading out to the car after a yummy dinner and BAM, Ashton hit the pavement extremely hard, and right on his head. He has always been really tough and hardly ever gets hurt. He cried for maybe 10 seconds then was right back to his old self.

Tommy had some work meetings in Utah this last week, and so Ashton, Weston and I tagged along. It was a lot of fun seeing friends and family, going out to dinners and lunches, hanging out at BYU again, and of course going to the BYU UCLA game. Weston and I decided to sit this game out, but Tommy and his friend Josh were brave and brought Ashton and Jaxon. We also had a great time staying with our friends in their beautiful cabin. Thank you Josh and Beki for a great time!

What a fun weekend we've had. It was Weston's big blessing day and so many friends and family came to support us. I will post about that later, but for now these pics will have to do. Tommy's family just left after a fun filled day of sightseeing and a yummy dinner. Ashton really enjoyed the kid stuff at the Buffalo Bill museum. Thank you to everyone who stayed and played today. We had so much fun. Check back for pictures from the blessing.

Our little all"star"

I found Ashton all decked out in these star stickers from our office. Yes, they were even on his tongue. We are still finding them everywhere. What fun!!!!

Ashtons big boy haircut

Tommy took Ashton to the salon for the first time to get his hair cut. I have just been trimming his hair here at home, but finally decided that it was time for a real haircut. When he came home I couldn't believe how different he looked. Tommy said he was so good and didn't move at all while she was cutting his hair. Our little guy is growing up so big!

Breckenridge Colorado

Lunch Time

Beautiful Scenery

The boys waking up

We decided to spend some of our Labor day weekend at a resort in Breckenridge. It's a big ski town with lots of things to do and see. We enjoyed the beautiful mountains and scenery, the shops, good food and of course the pool where we stayed. It was a little rainy on and off our first day there, but it turned out to be the perfect weather for sight seeing. It was such a fun family trip, but we are definitely worn out!
