Kate's Baptism

On Saturday, March 21, 2015, Kate was baptized. It was a beautiful day surrounded by family, friends, and people from our Ward. I cried a lot that day. I'm so proud of my sweet girl, and how beautiful, kind, and thoughtful she is. Oh, how I love this sweet, sassy, spunky girl. Also, I'm sad by baby is growing up so fast.

Kate's Kool-Aid Stand

Kate has been wanting to do a Kool-Aid stand for a month. She finally got it all set up but it was SO hot outside that no one was out. Kaden and I were her only customers. She also set out some crafts that she has made from her rainbow loom. She kept a good attitude though, and had fun! Love that cute girl!

Brave boy

I'm so proud of Kaden. He was terrified to do swimming lessons this summer. He's always been a little afraid of he water and not a strong swimmer. He begged me not to put him in swim lessons this year. But since we moved back to Mesa, and there are pools everywhere, I decided it was time he get more comfortable with the water. He has done great! Far exceeded my expectations. He is a great swimmer now, and knows lots of different strokes. The kids both even asked if they could take a diving class. Yesterday was their first day. At the end if class today, Kaden asked if he could try jumping off the high dive! Shocker! So here's a video...

I'm so proud of that kid!
