We bought Grant a sandbox/waterplay area for his birthday. He loved the water play area more than the sand. He kept trying to drink the water and dump it all over himself. It was pretty funny! He didn't really eat much of the cake- even though everyone else did! That was my favorite part of party... he ate like 3 bites off the top and that was it. He was pretty hyper for just a few bites though. Funny!

Today was Grant's 1 st bday! I can not believe the day has come and gone. I have thought about this day for some time now- and I am sad that it came so quickly! I have been so busy the last few days preparing and going overboard- of course. I expressed my enthusiasm through my cooking and creativity. I tried to stay on a budget so I made lots of homemade dishes and pulled out my wedding china... that I have never used before. My favorite was the yummy homemade banana cake and frosting that I made. I was surprised at how well it turned out for the first time. I have tons of pics- of course- but I am too tired to upload them tonight! I am off to bed. But I will have pictures tomorrow. I still can not believe that I have a 1 year old! All day I would take little random minutes and thank my heavenly father for the blessings in my life. Especially my adorable little boy! I couldn't help but tear up as I remembered this precious day for me and John.

Grant and Caydon met Santa for the first time yesterday! I think they liked him ok. It was very hot in Florida and poor Santa looked like he was sweating pretty bad... I think Grant didn't really mind sititng on his lap. He acted like it was no big deal. Caydon just kept starring at his big white beard.

Thanksgiving was so busy! I have been trying to catch up from being tired. The Sunday before I spoke in Sacrament meeting. Then I had a fun filled week with Jenny and the little boys. I cooked an organic turkey for Thanksgiving. It was my Dad's bday. Then John spoke in Sacrament meeting...and then finally today was John's bday. So here are a few pics that I am behind on--- My mom's table is always so beautiful!
