Happy 1st Bday!

Tuesday, January 13th was CJ's first birthday. I can't believe how quickly this year has come and gone. SO MUCH has happened, it's been a bit of a whirlwind for our family. My baby is one! It won't be long before he is walking and talking and ready to do everything on his own. He was been such a sweet addition to our family, he belongs! He melts all of hearts and has us all wrapped around his finger. He definitely has his own little, strong personality. He knows how to get what he wants at ALL times.

CJ dug right in. He was not afraid. I'm surprised he didn't end up eating the whole cake! I'm in trouble, he definitely has a bit of a sweet tooth!

We're glad that we could celebrate with all of Jeff's family. Mom & Dad, Amy and kids, Becky & Todd & kids, and Brian, Debbie and Crue, thank you so much for the fun presents. Also, thanks for taking time out of your busy schedules to come hang out for the evening. We love you!!

Parker's First Race

Last weekend, we took the kids out of school and drove to Heber for the weekend. Jeff wanted to race in the arenacross and Parker decided he wanted to race his motorcycle too. This was his first race! He put on a brave face, but I could tell that he was nervous.
He did such a great job! He was even more thrilled when he walked away with a trophy. He kept it close! He was so proud. He has already committed to the next two races. (The addiction has started!)

Dad and his boys.

The girls and CJ putting on a happy face. They were troopers! The race took forever. It started at about 7:30. Parker's race was #4 and Jeff was #23 & #37. We made it to the #23 race that started about 10:30pm. Jeff did awesome and took 2nd. The kids and I left after his first race, we were exhausted!

Mom and Dad came to support and cheer the boys on. There were an unusual amount of crazy crashes and by the time it was Jeff's race, mom could barely handle the stress. She was so worried for Jeff's well being and thank goodness he didn't let her down. He walked away injury free! Yea! Thanks so much for coming and hanging out with us. It was a very long night, and they stuck it out with us.
