Today was Matthews first day of preschool. I can't believe my little boy is old enough to be in preschool, time sure does fly when you're having fun. I didn't get to go with him today because I had to work but Jason got to take him and took some super cute pics of a very excited little boy at preschool.

Grad Part 2

So this is the only real decent picture I got of the second ceremony. Way to go Kasey, we are so proud of you!!!

Graduation Part 1

For Kasey's graduation there were 2 different ceremonies. The first one was for the whole school and the second one was for the individual colleges and thats were they would receive their diplomas and have there name read.

Waiting for #1 to start

She's the one on the end of the 3rd row from the back, looking at the program


Can't forget the pic by the sign

Storytime with Grandma Great LaFleur

It was great to be able to spend time with my Grandparents that we don't get to see very often. Matthew was barely a year old the last time we saw them and he sure had a blast getting to know them. How lucky are we to have such great family.

Utah Part 1

What visit to Ogden would be complete without a trip to Farr's Ice Cream. Here Matthew is with his Playdough ice cream. It's not quite as scary as it looks it was actually quite yummy.

There was a real working steam engine at the Ogden Train station that we were able to see while we there, Matthew was in seventh heaven. Look how big those wheels are.

In May we were lucky enought to go to Utah to be there for Kaseys graduation from the University of Utah. We were able to spend time with family and do many fun things. Get ready for a long post:)

"Excabator Time"

Uncle Chancey let Matthew come visit him at work one day and help him with "excabator." Matthew sure thought that was pretty cool.

I did it!!!

So I set out grocery shopping this last weekend and I am so proud of myself. I went completly prepared with a list and a plan. I managed to get $125 worth of groceries for $60 and some salad dressing for $.08. It felt so good to accomplish this task, now if I can get my kitchen sink in this week it'll be a great week in spite of the ankle sprain...not fun.

So I've never been very good with the budgeting thing so as a way to help me not to have to work so much anymore we are working on a a very strict budget so to help I'm jumping into the wonderful world of couponing. I've always wanted to be more structured with the food budget and I guess there is no better time than now. So I've decided to help keep me on track I will try to post my progress on our blog. If any of you have any tips or great websites let me know. I'm willing to take any and all advice.

Adventures in Cake

Thomas and Friends

Look at my Prize
Had to have the picture in the Thomas shirt.

The Grand Finale

Anxiously awaiting to go in and see the show.

Last weekend Matthew and I got to have a fun Mommy & Son day with a trip to Seattle to see Thomas live! After dealing with traffic getting there and the weather we had a wonderful time. I love seeing Matthew so excited and I'll have to admit that I rather enjoyed it as well.

I've been tagged for the first time so here it goes!

1) Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer.

2) Select the 4th picture in the folder.

3) Explain the picture.

4) Tag 4 people to do the same. No cheating (cropping, editing, etc.) Have fun!!
This picture is of Matthew opening presents Christmas 2007, I think it pretty much explains itself.
I'm not gonna tag anyone but if you'd like to post feel free!!!

Silly boy!

Matthew and I were watching The Backyardigans the other day and he turned to me and said "Mom, when I'm done being Matthew I want to be Austin.'' How does he come up with these things?

Christmas at Grandma Rosie's

We went to Jason's family for Christmas dinner. We had a great time with great food and great family and Matthew couldn't forget the presents:) Congratulations to Megan and Josh as well who got engaged on Christmas day. We are so blessed to have such good family all within a relatively close distance.

Christmas at Grandmas

After Christmas at home we moved onto Grandmas house for more presents, great breakfast and fun family time.

Christmas Morning

We started our Christmas Festivities with a quiet morning at home, Santa came and left lots of fun toys and games. Matthew is at just the right age that everything is so exciting to him he absoulutely feel in love with Santa this year, he still tells me that he misses Santa Claus.
