10th Anniversary, Losing teeth, tooth fairy and water slides....

Wow there is so many things I haven't had the time to blog about, end of school parties, scout camp (Aydon loved it!) Jelly Belly factory, but there are a few recent ones that deserve an honorable mention. Danny and I celebrated our 10th Anniversary on the 11th of July. I can't believe time has gone by so fast. We were driving home from Utah and didn't have much of an anniversary. ( The picture is from a dinner we went to the previous week.) My Mom took the older 3 kids and Jake stayed home with us. We ordered in Tahoe Joes and had a cozy evening with just the 3 of us. We laughed our guts out because we have packed up all of our dishes and have been paper plating it for the past couple of weeks. We left out a few of the kids plastic plates, so I had a princess plate and Danny had super man. I thought that was completely appropriate since Danny is super man to me! He is the love of my life and I am so happy we chose eachother!

Lauren finally lost her first tooth. It has been hanging on by a thread for a month. We tried having her bite a towel and pulling it out fast and nothing happened, finally Danny did what he has done to Aydon several times. He promises them that he won't touch it, so he tells them to get their fingernail under the back of the tooth and pull down as far as they can until it hurts and them he quickly smacks their hand. The tooth goes flying! She was so excited. She didn't even cry. She ran around showing us all her tooth and put in the bag for the tooth fairy! Accept that night when I looked under her pillow it wasn't there! She woke me up the next morning and said she hoped the tooth fairy wouldn't be made at her, but she wasn't ready to give up her tooth yet. She wanted to show Grandma Debbie and her best friend Ella. I told her I am sure the tooth fairy wouldn't mind!

Now these pictures aren't about any big occasion, but they are so special to me. (They turned out terrible though). Yesterday we had some of the nieghbor kids over to play. They drug out the hose and put it on the slide and they all got soaked in the regular clothes. They had so much fun. The part that made it so special to me is that I know this is going to be one of the few times left that my kids will play with thier little friends here in this house, in our backyard! We love our nieghbors and their kids are the best. We have been in this house for a little over 6 years and our kids are the best of friends. That is one of the things that will make leaving so difficult. However we know we will stay in touch and see eachother as often as we can.


Taylor's family moved in about six months ago and he and Aydon have been buds ever since.


Ella Bella is Lauren's Best Friend!

Kole has been Aydon's best friend since they were 2 years old. He is such a great kid!

Aydon apparently was getting a little thirsty.

Lauren wanted to go down the slide but didn't want to get wet so she let Kole Know it in true Lauren fashion!
