Cleaning the mixer


Since I have always been a total sweets person, this was, without a doubt, my favorite part of baking when I was little. We would usually "make something" (as I would call it) when I stayed with Grandma O'Donnell, and I couldn't wait to "lick".
We have revival this week, and tonight is our SS class' turn to feed the Preacher. I made a yum-ma-li-cious blueberry (congealed) salad. When I finished, Aubree took one beater, but there is no way of talking my other picky kid into putting something in his mouth that he isn't familiar with!!! No matter..... I got to lick the other! :)

Payton's 1st Birthday in GA!


Christi & Payton have been home from Alaska since the first of the year, so she can complete her college classes that will not transfer. Guess who turned one during his vacation to Georgia??
So we had a celebration last night in his honor, and Aubree stopped for a pose with the birthday boy... Whew! I had to be quick to get the snap! Payton does pretty okay with keeping up with hurriCATE if that tells you anything! :)
Time for the most fun part! That burning candle was calling his name...
Ummmm......

"Oh, yeah! That's pretty good and no one is stopping me!!"

Eating was okay, but the playing was tons better.....and messier!

Go, man, go!



Time for presents and that was Aubree's fun part!!! She ended up in present take-over! Since Michael has been missing from his family.... he arranged to fly in for Payton's first birthday as a surprise to Christi. As luck would have it, it turned out to be a horrible day for flying with all the wind and tornado look-outs! He was a little later than expected, but still managed to get there during Payton's party!!! It was super sweet!
Group shot!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAYTON!!


Can't wait for that first haircut! :)
