Clayton's 32! June 15th, 2011

For Clayton's 32rd birthday this year my parents got him new glasses! His old perscription was about 4 years old and was in desperate need of updating. While at the doctor's office he decided to get fitted for contacts too just to see if he would like them.
He looks so sexy in his new glasses and has had a lot of fun with his trial contacts. For the first time in years he has been able to wear sun glasses. Sunglasses were one of his other birthday gifts:)
He loves swimming with the contacts and being able to see clearly while in the pool and not having to worry about putting on his glasses immediately after getting out.
To celebrate we had a big Thanksgiving dinner since it's one of his favorite meals and I actually made the turkey! We also had a game night with a bunch of our friends and family members later in the week complete with Rock Band, card games and lots of Mexican food!!!

Lots of changes!

This Spring has come with many surprises. The biggest one came when Clayton's mom needed to move in with us back in April. We only have a small 2 bedroom town home but we definitely make it work. We are currently in the process of selling our home so we can all move to something a little bigger. Yay!!! Hopefully that will happen soon. One of the other changes that came with Clayton's mom is what we eat. She has to eat gluten free. For a fun Family Home Evening May 23rd we made Gluten-Free Pizza!
We had a lot of fun and it tasted great! I love this picture of my two boys, they are so cute!
Clayton is adorable in his apron.

Mother's Day 2011

Mother's Day this year was a special one. Clayton and Cardon made sure it was beautiful and let me rest a lot. We went to my parents for dinner and had a ton of appetizers, Yummy, and a delicious dinner. The evening ended with some gifts that Clayton had carefuly thought out. He had been searching for the Cinderella dvd since it's my favorite movie and has been in the Disney vault for a while. I was so surprised when I opened it! I also got a butter dish!!! This may sound crazy but I had been looking for a specific butter dish for months and now I have it! What a great day.

I love being a mom. Cardon is such a joy to be around and I am so blessed to have him in my home. I sometimes get overwelmed with the responsibility that Heavenly Father has given me. I feel so inadequate sometimes but I know that I'm doing my best and I have so much help and great examples of motherhood around me to look up to.

Our 3rd Anniversary!

Our anniversary was May 3rd and we decided that we needed to get "away" just the two of us for a day or so. Clayton's mom was kind enough to watch Cardon while we had a little stay-cation. We booked a suite at the Tuscany for.... wait for it..... $29!!! It was really nice and big. We had a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a nice big shower, a living area and a kitchen. For dinner we went to the Bellagio buffet and ate until we thought we were going to explode! The next day we hung out, walked around the strip a little and had a really fun lunch at Serendipity 3 at the Caesars Palace.
I can't believe it's been 3 years already. We have had some bumps along the way but we are still very much in love. Clayton is my best friend in the whole world! I just wish we had more time to spend together.

End of April trip to SLC

My sister-in-law had her business launch party where she unveiled "Sugarhouse Vintage". She is very crafty and creates beautiful works of art in the form of clothes, repurposed antiques, table linens, etc. While up in Utah MaryAnn, Cardon and I also visited some historical church sites including "This is the place" monument where we took a picture of the name of one of our ancestors who came across the plains with Brigham Young.
