Finally, some warm weather!!! -


P, our future football player. Actually, he tripped while running from Daddy and was getting up but we thought he looked like football player. There have been many guys at church who thought he would be a football player when he got older. P used to be a lot huskier when he was smaller.

Hanging out near the neighbors fence. Yet again, I managed to get a great picture of Preston and it has a ladybug sticker in it. Oh well, whatever works. I'll put J to work on Photoshop to fix that later.


Running around and checking out the yard. P loves to be outside.


Playing with Daddy. They have so much fun together!

I Love My Boys -

P has this nifty hat that he likes to wear . . . on occasion. We had a hard time getting him to keep it on for a picture, hence the lovely photo of J. I'm not sure if he wasn't ready or if he thought he wasn't in the picture. Either way, he is still the most handsome man I know and I love him to pieces!

P wanted my parent's dog, Jack, to wear the hat. Jack was not thrilled and took off running. Luckily, we managed to get this shot before he took off! I am so grateful that Jack is patient with P. He is a very good dog and just tries to stay out of P's way. The only time he bothers P is when P is carrying around food. He has been known to tackle P when he is carrying around food. Silly dog.

P and Grampy jamming. P was playing "beautiful" xylophone music while Grampy sang along. P sang too. It was pretty cute.

Brushing teeth and stuff . . . -

P loves to wear this hat. It used to be J's hat until it accidentally got bleached. Now that it is pink, he won't wear it . . . I guess I don't blame him, even I won't wear it! As you can see, P is quite the ham and has a lot of fun when he brushes his teeth.

Here are two different views of P's lips. This posting is being made with my Grandma Gower in mind. She has always admired and loved his lips from the day he was born. P is a silly little man and these pictures prove that he really is "The Man of A Thousand Faces." (That is the nickname that my G'ma and G'pa Gower have given him.)
We love our cutie pie!

I can't decide!!! -

I don't know what to do! If you have noticed, I have a couple different links to free blog backgrounds and I am just dying! There are SO MANY cute backgrounds and I want ALL OF THEM! I have to try and remember that there are people that only look at blogs once a week or every couple of days. Unlike me, I check my e-mail and people's blogs 2-3 times a day! I know, I'm a nerd, but I am really addicted to blogging and Facebook right now. So, if you see my background change several times, have patience with me. This is the only scrapbooking / crafting activity that I do. My mom can attest! P wouldn't have any scrapbook pages if it wasn't for my wonderful mother! I LOVE YOU MOM!

P & Grampy -


P loves to sit next to Grampy and play with his very own remote. This is one of his favorite spots when we go and visit Grammy & Grampy.

P loves this cool guitar. It plays songs and all sorts of stuff. He really gets his groove on sometimes! ; )

P loves to play his guitar with Grammy and she loves it!

P loves to play with Grampy's cheap drugstore reading glasses. We put them on him but he wasn't wanting to pose for a picture. This was the best one I could get! Also, he has a ladybug sticker on his forehead, if you were wondering. The only way we can get him to wear a sticker is if we sneak it on his head! Poor kid!

The tree is gone!!!



Don't get me wrong, I love trees and all but this tree was ugly. (I wish I had been smart enough to take a before picture. *Drat!*) Anyway, this blue spruce pine tree had been planted too close to the house and was rubbing against the house and roof. I didn't want to risk a possible leak in the roof and I was tired of the pitter patter of squirrels running on top of our house. Who knows what they could be doing up there! Can squirrels ruin roofs? I know they can chew through phone lines so I didn't want to take the risk. Anyway, we decided to cut it down and when I say "we" I mean we hired a professional to do it! There is a guy in our ward, Shane Arnold, who does landscaping and stuff so we had him do it. FYI- For all those that went to high school with me, Shane is married to Amber Jackman! She is the primary president in our ward and they have three kids. Small world, huh?!

Surprise visit from my cousin -

My cousin Travis and his daughter Ayda made a surprise visit for a few minutes to visit Grandma and Grandpa. Luckily, I was nearby and got the chance to see them and introduce the kids. P and Ayda have never had the opportunity to meet so it was exciting to get them together. As you can see, P was a little shy at first.



This is P and Ayda saying CHEESE!!!



Ayda is giving P a hug and he is allowing it. It kind of looks like she wasn't all that excited about giving the hug either but it was cute nonetheless!


Travis, Ayda, K, and P posing for a picture before Travis and his family move to Oregon. We will miss you, make sure you come back and visit!!!!

Okay . . . I'm a nerd!


Yes, yes, I know . . . I can hear the groans! But I am so excited about my new phone that I had to show you! If you will reference the post below, Preston doesn't hold still for very long so I end up taking pictures of things that will hold still! ;) Anyway, I just had to show my lovely new phone with the full keyboard. I know that Lindsay Walker is drooling and totally jealous. One day Lindsay, you will get your phone with the full keyboard and we will have so much fun texting. Have a great day everyone!

I don't want my picture taken! -

I was trying to take some photos of P because he was being cute and silly. Well, since he realized that he can see a picture on the camera, he is constantly trying to look at the back of the camera and I can't get any good pictures of him! The silly boy! He got so upset at me because I wouldn't let him see it and he gave me this face! This is not the typical P, I must say. He really is quite sweet and nice . . . most of the time! ;o)

Family Pic

This is one of my favorite family photos. J's brother, Shane, took these in December 2007. I think he did an awesome job. If you look above, you will see a slide show with some more. You should check out Shane's website at: www.westernartphotography.com He is an awesome photographer and you can see more of his work!

Back In Blog Land!!!

We are back in blog land! Now that you can have a private blog, I feel much more comfortable about being on blogspot! I was concerned about my family being seen by weirdos and decided to take a break. But anyway, the Lind's are back!
