i hope they call me on a mission

My mom and dad are serving a mission for our church. They have left their home in Orlando and are living in Salt Lake City for 18 months. I am so proud of my mom and dad and thankful for their example to our family. I love this picture. Maybe it's because I've never seen my dad wear a scarf before, or maybe it's because I'm still not used to seeing him minus his 'stache, but I just want to hug my dad when I see this. Thanks mom and dad! We Love You!

happy birthday baby!

One year ago today, our little Stella made her big arrival into the world! She caught us totally off guard by coming 6 weeks early and being a little tiny bug (5lbs 8oz) but she took a huge hold of our hearts in moments.
Stella's first year has flown by and I can't believe my little baby is already a year old. Stella is just as sweet as they come. Her bright eyes, silly crooked smile, and sweet personality are more than we could have ever dreamed. She loves people and loves to give hugs and kisses.
We Love You, Stell Bell!

she makes her daddy proud

The song you are currently listening to (if it's A Dustland Fairytale by The Killers) is Sidney's favorite song. Do you know any other 4-year-olds that say "The Killers ROCK!"? I'm a little bit worried that her preschool teacher might pull me aside to ask me why Sidney keeps talking about Killers.
