Azalea turned 6 years old.

Wow, Azalea 3 days ago you turned 6 years old.   I am so happy I get to be your mother.  Your dad and I waited along time for you.  It took us about 1 1/2 to get pregnant with you.  That has been one of the hardest 1 1/2 years of my life.  I am so grateful that you came to this family.  We are so blessed to have you.  

You started kindergarten this past August.  You are doing really well.  You are learning to read and write so quickly.  You can already spell the words horse and bus.  You the other day wrote a note saying I like a horse.  You can count to 100 already.  I love that you love school.  

This picture was taken the day after you turned 6.  

Here is a picture of you just minutes after you where born.  I think this is such a cute picture.   You where 9lbs even when you where born.

Here is a  picture of you a day after you where born.    

                                                          Here you are at about 1 month old.

                                                Here you are at 6 months old.

Here you are at a year old.  I think your little brother Eli who is 15 months old looks so much like you when you where one.

  Here you are at 2 years old.

                                                        Here you are a little over 3 years old.

                                                         Here you are at 4 years old.

Here you are a couple days before you turn 5.

Here you are about 1 week after you turned 5.  You had your hair cut because you had cut it. 

                  Here  you are at 5 1/2 with even shorter hair because again you had cut it . However no matter how short your hair is you always look beautiful.

Your fifth year of life was a little difficult for you.  At 5 1/2 years old you had to have your appendix removed.   You did so well though.   You recovered quickly so you where back climbing and jumping off everything.

You had a great birthday this year.   I love you so much

Happy Birthday Azalea.

Halloween 2011

Halloween 2011 was really fun.  It pretty much went from Friday October 28th to Monday October 31st.  We went trick or treating 5 different time.

On Friday October 28th we went trick or treating at Payson Market and on Saturday we went trick or treating down Payson Main street.  We went with Amber and her kids.  The kids had a lot of fun.  We also went trick or treating on Halloween with Amber and her kids in Amber's neighborhood.  That was lot of fun also.  Look at all the fun the kids had in the above picture.

Saturday night on October 29th we had a LDS ward party.  The party was so much fun.  There was a ward soup dinner.  The soup Andrew made was the first soup all gone.  Everybody loved it.  There was also trick or treating down the halls.  There was also a room where they dyed your hair.  Even I got my hair dyed.

On Monday Halloween Day.  I first went to the kids school and saw the Costume parade.  It was outside and it was kind of cold.  It was really cute though.  What was even cuter is that the 6th graders walked with the kindergartner's so Caleb walked with Azalea.  Than after school Andrew's work had a trick or treating and the kids and I went there it was so much fun and the kids got tons of candy.  As I mentioned earlier on  Halloween night we went trick or treating with Amber and her kids.  

So by trick or treating 5 different times, we ended up with a lot of candy.  I mean a lot.  Oh how I love Halloween.

I took all of the photo's below of my kids about 2 weeks before Halloween.  It was a lot of fun.  I think I did a great job.  I am falling in love with taking pictures. 
Caleb is an escaped prisoner. 

Marysa is Alice in wonderland.

Azalea is a Witch cat.

Joshua is a skeleton.

Eli is a baby devil.

Since this post is one week past Halloween that means today is November 7th so I would like to say Happy 30th birthday to my twin sister Amy Shetter and Amber Murray.
