I L.O.V.E bunko!

I know that I have said this before but... it's TRUE!

Once a month I get to have a girls night out. Just the girls.
We eat, laugh, talk, catch up. Swear! ;)
If there is one thing I'm sure of, its that I could not exist without
really GREAT girlfriends!

Happy Birthday Benson!

(I totally suck. I know but I still need to post this right? :-/)

Benson Boy turned four last Saturday, the 19th and I cannot believe it. It seriously seems like yesterday we were driving to the hospital in Cedar City to be induced. Ah, 23 hours later he made his sweet arrival to start our little family. He is such a good boy. He loves to be with his friends especially Lucas! He's a great helper and loves, loves his sister Hiley.

He had a great birthday. We decided to keep it low key and celebrate at Pirate Island Pizza with our awesome neighbors {The P's}. Thanks so much for coming you guys! :) "Brown Grandma" was also sweet enough to come and celebrate with us! Then on Sunday, we met my parents in Fillmore where we had a fun picnic and opened more presents. I think he had a great day and got totally spoiled with all his TRANSFORMERS!! AAHH. The kid is obsessed!!!

Anyway, we LOVE you Benson and are so glad you are in our family! :)


(His facial expression cracks me up!)

I'm a little behind in posting this but Benson started pre-school last week. He missed his first official day the week before due to a random fever but was finally feeling good enough to go this last Tuesday! Well, he was pretty excited until he found out I was "dropping him off". He was so not having that. Miss Katy literally had to pry his little fingers off my arm. I'm usually pretty tough. Not today. When I got in the car I called my mom and we both sat there and cried for a minute. It was REALLY hard to leave him. I don't know what the rules are or even what to expect with this whole school thing. However, when I picked him up, she said he did awesome and only cried for about 30 seconds. Yah!!! Thursday was so much better and when we got there he said, "See ya mom, thanks for dropping me off!"

A different little girl...

So about a week ago, I decided to cut Hiley's hair. It was getting so long and was always such a mess. My cute friend Paige came over and helped us out by cutting it into a cute "bob"! It looks so cute on her! I love it. It seriously makes her look like a different kid, like an actual little girl... No more baby! Anyway, it's darling and she loves it!

Party Time

So on Saturday, we attempted to throw my mom a surprise birthday party. We actually did pretty good considering we were still trying to figure things out until about an hour before the party actually started! :) Anyway, we had a good time and a good turn out. The best part of the party was when we gave my mom her BIG present which is.... A CRUISE! Yahoo! We, as in us 4 girls, are going on a Mexican Rivieria Cruise in March! I cannot wait! :)
Again, Happy Birthday, mom!
Hope you had a good time and were a little bit surprised!!
