Either way, we all had a blast! I don't think I've had a workout like that since high school dances with my drama buds. Tracie Garcia proved that she is, once again, the Party Queen with incredible decor, and I had my first attempt at making a real decorative cake. It wasn't too shabby, but next time will be better. The DJ equipment really put the finishing touches on everything. It was such a fun night. Happy 30th Birthday, Katie!!!
Party Diva, Tracie Garcia

Weight: 11 lbs 7.5 oz, 75%
Annie isn't quite as heavy as her brother was at this age, (she weighs more than a pound less than he did) but she is already longer! Maybe she'll be tall like her Mama and Aunt Cami. She loves to coo and tell us all sorts of stories. She smiles and giggles and makes us love her more and more every minute. Just before she was getting her shots she was cooing and started to giggle right when the nurse stuck her. It was so sad! I felt like I betrayed her or something. She calmed down quickly though and is already back to her happy self.
Will has also reached a new milestone: He slept downstairs in his new big boy room last night! He did much better than I did. He slept soundly all night while I tossed and turned and woke up to check on him 3 times. He loves his new room, and I love that my kids will be able to have their own room. (Mostly for the decor... I know, I'm vain). Pictures of Will's room will be posted shortly.
Dallas also started school today. He will be heading to Provo every morning at 7AM to be to his Calculus class. He is also taking Intro to Engineering, Intro to Theater :o), Biology, and Chemistry. He is going to be so busy! I hope we get to see him for more than lunch and dinner. He will do great though; he is so smart.

He said some funny things while he was up there. He knew we were coming up on Friday. When Kristie tried to convince him to use the potty, he said he would just wait until his Mom came. Luckily she convinced him otherwise. He also wanted Annie to come visit Wyoming.

Me: Do you think when we are in heaven that we will be able to have lots and lots of babies?
Dallas: (Insert stunned, long silence here) Let's not talk about it until we get there.

I am so blessed to live among some of the most amazing women! They can cook, clean, shovel gravel, throw incredible parties, mow lawns with children strapped to their chests in a baby bjorn, serve their neighbors without being asked, teach life skills, sing, and play the guitar (and some of them can do all of these at the same time- you know who you are!) Not only this, but they are all amazing friends and examples of Jesus Christ.
I love you girls! Thanks for making my life so rich.
(Not to mention FUN).
