Many events that took place since January!

The last time I posted was Hannah Shower, since then she has given us another beautiful grandson this makes two for us, Willie and Camie have Vance and Hannah and Billy now have Reed, he is such a good baby and I feel very lucky for her that he is, she has her hands very full with three little kids now. She is a great Mom and has many talents if you go to her blog you can see all the amazing things she has sewn and stitched, I have no doubt that her kids will be showing off many new fashions, she actually made the blanket that Reed was blessed in I don't where she finds the time to do all these things!

Then this little girl turned one, Nixyn is the sweetest little girl she just roams around grandma's house and never makes a peep, she has learned to share her new little brother not sure if she likes that too much right now but i know she loves him she has the cutest little personality, Grandpa and Grandma love her and wish her a Happy Birthday!

Then there's Oscar this guy turned a big 8, I cannot believe he is already 8 where does the time go, he has brought so much joy and laughter to our family and sometimes tires his Mom and Dad out trying to keep up with him, I have no regrets having this happy child come to me in my life later then expected, he has been a blessing to me and has given me strength when it was needed at a time in my life. Happy Birthday Oscar we love you

And so it begins all over again, yep we get to do scouting again it has been many years since we have done scouting in our family the last time was with Zac and that was about 14 years ago, I was so tempted to dig out Zac and Willie's old pinewood derby cars and recycle them, but new that wouldn't go over big with this guy, he was so excited to carve his car and paint it with his Dad they had a great night racing his car, I was sad i couldn't be there but was at Hallie choir concert which was pretty good with some familiar songs! (finally)

Oscar had a very special day this birthday he was baptised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, he was so excited for this day to come, it was a happy sad day for me for he was our last to be baptised, his brother Willie was asked by Oscar to give the talk on the Holy Ghost Willie did a great job and told a story about his dad while his dad was on his Mission, i know there were some watery eyes, mine mostly, thanks Willie and thanks Oscar for asking him!

Zac also was able to participate, Oscar had allot of family support that came and he thanks everyone for being there, his special day was shared with another little boy in our ward, Dane between both families the room was full, and then we went over to the Sherwoods for some yummy cake and salsa, who would of thought that these two little babies were in the same hospital one day apart Oscar being our last and Dane being there first and not knowing each other well maybe they did before they were sent to us and ending up being in the same ward and there family being one of our good friends.

We love you Oscar this day was very special thanks!
Then it was off to Rocky Point for Oscar birthday and well spring break, Oscar has been going here since he was practically born, and he pretty much celebrates his birthday here every year, he has told us more then once that he wants to live here and have a yellow house with a blue roof, he has made many friends on the beach and continues to do that today.

Oscar's first time riding on the banana boat, I was scared he was having a great time!

First time skim boarding, now he's a pro and now he wants one, thanks to these strangers on the beach for letting him use there board!

Boyd and Oscar coming up from the beach, he loves to go out and find all the sea creatures after the tide goes out and they have found some interesting things, his favorite thing to do!

End of our trip, Oscar is not a big fan of shopping, but we had a good time, we missed Hallie this trip but she was in Newport Beach having fun with her good friends Page and Matty.

Ending with a sweet picture, Oscar holding his new little nephew Reed he loves his nieces and nephews!
