First Day Of Middle School

We did it...We survived the first day of Middle School. The traffic was insane but we still managed to get there in time. This year is a bit of change for me. Not only is my oldest moving on to a bigger school but he is also going to be riding the bus. I decided to take him the first day and apparently everybody else took their kids too. Trey's school is up in Anthem. It's only a few years old and it seems to be a great school. It's in what I like to call a "ritzy" area. There's two or three different elementary schools that move on to Del Webb so there are quite a few kids there. Trey has at least one person in each of his classes that he knew from Schorr so that helps. I was a little nervous all day and was excited to go get him when school was over.

He was a happy boy when me and Aiden picked him up. I asked him how his first day was and he said it was "so much better than Elementary." So that's a plus. I asked him if he already had the girls chasing him and his response "Well, I definitely got a few looks" LOL. What a handsome boy I have!

The second day Trey wanted to ride the bus with his friends and so yesterday Aiden and I walked Sophie to the bus stop and waited for him on the grass. Aiden was so excited when the bus pulled up. So far so good on this Middle School journey:)

Happy Birthday Trey

On August 22 my handsome boy Trey turned 11 years old. I still cannot believe he is 11.  Time is flying by and I really wish it would just slow down for a bit.  We had a crazy month in August. We went to Utah a week before Trey's Birthday and spent a few days with my sis and her family.  Trey's Grandpa Barney came and picked him up on Wednesday and then me and Aiden drove back to Vegas. He went to Lake Powell with them for five days and had a great time. He gets to go to the lake with them at least once every summer and he loves it.  I had to come home to do a few photo shoots so my mom and dad picked Trey up and brought him back home the day before his Birthday.  I was so thankful for that. I feel like all I have been doing is driving back and forth to and from Utah so that was nice of them:) When we were all getting ready for bed later that night I told Trey I was going to wake him up at 3:22 AM and give him a Birthday kiss and he just laughed...But I decided I better not wake him up so I blew up some balloons and put money in them and had them all over his floor when he woke up!

Monday morning me and Trey headed to the Middle School bright and early to get his locker, classes, pay fees, his P.E. uniform, etc. Afterwards we came home and spent the whole day with Grandma and Grandpa Sylvester...Trey picked where he wanted to go for dinner and he chose one of his favorite restaurants P.F. Chang's...I also let him pick whatever cake he wanted and he wanted me to make his favorite yellow cake with his favorite icing (simple boy, I love it.) Afterwards we headed to U swirl for some yummy yogurt where he had his favorite peanut butter yogurt with cookie dough chunks.  I of course indulged in red velvet and added mini chocolate mouth is watering just typing that:) Unfortunately Jason wasn't with us.  He got sent up to work in St. George for a few days:(

Aiden was loving singing happy birthday to his big brother

Grandma and Grandpa Sylvester gave him this quilt that Grandma made for him which he loved

I love my boys

Thanks for all the birthday wishes for Trey and thanks to all of you that mailed him gifts....He was able to buy himself an ipod touch with all the money he received and is LOVING it! And we are having a blast with his kinect for the xbox that Jason gave him...Made me realize how out of shape I am...We have been playing wipeout and it is literally wiping me out...but it's nice to spend some quality time with my oldest...Happy Birthday Trey! We LOVE you!

P- Town

A few weeks ago me and the boys headed up to Parowan. I had to take Trey up there so his Grandpa could come and get him for Lake Powell so I decided we would just stay for a few days. We had a fun time. We took the kids to the little fishing pond there. They had fun fishing and feeding the ducks.

Girls Night Out

A few weeks ago my mom came and stayed with us for about 10 days...It was much needed for both of us...I miss not living by my family and it's times like this that I miss them even more. The last few days my mom was in town Tiff came down and stayed with us as well...Jason actually had a few days off to so he was willing to watch all the kids while we went out on the town for a few hours. We had a lot of fun, a lot of laughs, and an overall great time. Thanks to my hubby for watching the kids for the night:)

Tiff, Mom, and Me

Believe it or not but this was the first time we have went out on the town together with just us three...It's definitely something we need to do at least once year...Thanks for the great memories...Love you girls to pieces.

Mini shoot with Aiden

While in Utah, I snuck in a mini photo shoot with my Aiden...He came along with me on all my shoots and I quickly snapped a few shots of him looking cute as ever. Two year old's are the hardest in my opinion to take pics of so I have to get the shots whenever I can when he doesn't realize that he is my main focus:) Enjoy!

Look at these eyes

And these lashes

So cute...I just can't get enough of him

And his cute little pants

The little stinker isn't afraid of anything...He climbed to the top so fast.
