We have had a wonderful Christmas here in Utah. Drake has been so much fun this year, even though he still doesn't really understand what Christmas is all about. Here are some pics of our fun....

The best kisses in the world!

Drake's Party

Drake had his birthday party on Sunday. It wasn't on his actually birthday because Chris was flying in to Salt Lake on that day so we postponed Drake's party a couple days. Drake had so much fun - even though he didn't really know what was going on. Here are a bunch of pictures of the fun...

I'm so excited, I just can't hide it!!!!

Drake loves trucks, so Chris and I made him a dump truck cake. We were so proud of our masterpiece.

Drake had lots of help opening his presents!

Getting ready

What is this???

Yum, I get to play in this mess.

This is so good and so much fun!

Whew, I am full.
Thanks everyone for helping us celebrate our sweet boys first birthday!

My baby turns one today. I can't believe it. This year has been so much fun and has gone by way too fast. I can't beleive one year ago today I was meeting Drake for the first time. I was extremely exhausted but unbelievably in love. Today I am even more in love with Drake. The feelings and emotions that being a parent brings is amazing. They are overwhelming and fantastic. I am so lucky to have Drake. He has made my move to Wisconsin so fun and easy. He just makes me laugh every day. Drake is now walking (although he still prefers to crawl, since it is faster), and his personality is hilarious. He is such a good boy, always happy and smiling. He is also very sweet and will crawl up to me just to give me a hug. Chris and I have had such a blast watching Drake learn and grow and we can't wait to see what he does next. Happy Birthday Little Mister. We love you so much!

Snow Day

It finally snowed!!!!

Drake didn't really know what to think about the snow. But he still had fun for the whole 5 minutes that we were outside.

Oh, and did you notice his boots that are 3 sizes too big for him? At least when we got inside he was completely dry and warm!
