Big Boy Bed

Austin was so excited about his big boy bed! I asked if he wanted to help put it together and he got his tools out. After all, he is the man of the house now. It was a little sad, because my baby is growing up. But everyday is a new adventure for him. He is getting so smart. He starts preschool in the spring. We have to work on the potty training now. Any tips would be great. The only thing that works is M&M's. Now, lets see if I get any sleep tonight.

Fun day at Grandma Hinzes

My parents got home from Utah and we have been having the best time together. Austin loves to swim with Grandma. He is a little dare devil. He jumps off the sides and diving board with no fear.

My parent live on an acre, so mowing is quite a chore. They got the driving mower, and is it super fun! It was like a mini quad or something. Austin loved to watch mommy go around and around. It is great to have my parents home. We all sure missed them.

Water Boy!

Austin is the most thoughtful little boy. This morning I wasn't feeling very well,and Austin asked if I wanted a drink. I told him yes and fell asleep a little longer. Then, Austin said," Mom, want some water?" I turned to see all the bottles on our end table. I thanked him. and he was so proud of himself. I love that little guy!

Ryan and Stacey's Wedding!

Ryan and Stacey got married in Pinetop last weekend. It was a very beautiful ceremony. Ryan kept looking at Stacey with the biggest smile. They are so in love and we are very happy for them. Stacey, and all of her sisters,have the most gorgeous blue eyes. All of the nieces and nephews were so well behaved. They all had a great time afterwards outside running around together. It was such a wonderful day!

This picture explains it all! Austin's first cookie, cake, ice cream or anything sweet was given to him from Grandma. She sure does love to spoil her grandkids- and they sure do love it! We are very grateful for all the fun activites Grandma creates for all of us. We love ya!
