Happy Birthday My Mom!

How old are you now? 29? That's what I thought!
I love you so much! You have always been so amazingly caring to everyone you meet - your capacity for love and giving is just incredible! I only hope that I can live up to your ability to make every one around you happy, and full of love! I'm so proud to be your daughter - I so love spending time with you, I also love getting to know you as my friend the older I get. You're such a hoot, one of my favorite things to do is laugh with you! Thank you for your compassion and motherly teachings - everything I know, I learned from you (especially how to keep my house clean!). I love you more than you know - thank you for who I am, for all you do and for your endless love!For you on your birthday - the Man-ilow!

Allie's Sixteenth Birthday!

Allie's boyfriend Casey came over with their friend Tanner to decorate Allie's room the night before her birthday - Allie was away in Logan at a leadership camp. So we had a great time with the boys - everyone took turns wearing the birthday crown! We planned a fun little surprise party for her b-day - her friends all gathered at her favorite restaurant and ate a yummy meal for the big day! On Friday we had a family party - complete with Jen and Ezra! We had cupcakes (made by Aunt D'An - so yummy!) and pizza - the house was full! Al got a mini laptop for her birthday, so we were able to connect with Talin for a video conference (he couldn't come visit us, so he was still in California), we had a great time passing him around to everyone!
Matt and I gave Al this cute little owl pillow! I was so excited to give it to her - another Etsy find!

Why Aunt Erin Needs Some Sort of Keep-Everything Belt!

Because she ended up leaving her camera in Ezra's diaper bag in California! Here are the cute shots I shot with my normal camera - not my cell phone!On our way to Half Moon Bay!Gorgeous sand and surf!Tal and Jen's cat Owen warming up to me! Their other cat, Emma, hissed every time I walked into a room where she happened to be.Feeling a little like a pirate!I love how he put his little hand on my face in this shot!We all had such a great time! I will always remember the time I spent at the Wadsworth house in Cali!

The Missing Honeymoon Pictures

My cousin Tori gave Matt and me a camera for our wedding. We took it with us on our honeymoon to Disneyland and when we returned home we couldn't locate the cords to charge it or put the pics on the computer. Finally, while Matt was cleaning out one of our bags the other day he found the cords! So here are some lost shots from Disneyland - we came back from our honeymoon one year ago last Wednesday! We have yet to go back, but I would live there if I could, right above the gift stores on Main Street USA!
