Glenn's Retirement Open House

On Monday we held an Open House for Glenn's retirement from Springville High School.

We all gathered at the High School Student Courtyard to congratulate him and show him our appreciation.

Cristy and I put together a table that included different aspects of Glenn's life, including his teaching and coaching career.

Lots of people showed up to show support for Glenn.  It included lots of family, friends and fellow school faculty past and present.

Glenn was even given a few gifts from different people.

I think we had a pretty good turn out!

Congratulations to Glenn on his retirement.  37 years at Springville High is quite the feat.  I'm glad we could be involved in the celebration of this big moment in his life.

A Visit With Grandma Jo

I just had to post this picture.

On Saturday Lincoln and I headed up to Harrisville to visit my mom and Jessi's family for Mother's Day/Mickey's Birthday.

We had a great time visiting and I got this precious shot of MamaJo and Lincoln.

I just love it!

8 Months Old!

Today Lincoln turned 8 months old!

He is turning into such a cutie!  He is very adventurous now that he has started to "crawl".  It's more of an army crawl, but it gets him around VERY well.

He has also gotten very good at sitting on his own and he is eating all kinds of solid foods.

His favorite toys right now are his remote control, his bell, and his "monkey-horse".

He is such a happy little guy and we love all his smiles and giggles!

12th Anniversary

Last Friday Andy and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary.
Since we both had to work during the day, our plans were for the evening.
Andy arranged for his co-worker Kathy to watch Lincoln and we headed out for dinner.

We ate at Buena Vita which is an Italian restaurant in Lehi.
Then Andy had a surprise activity for me.  A trip to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point.

Neither one of us had been before and it just happened to be opening day.
It was a BEAUTIFUL evening to spend in the gardens there.

Here are just a few of the pics we took during our wanderings:

I am so grateful to have been married to such a wonderful guy for so long!  Life has been crazy at times.  Especially this past year with the arrival of Lincoln!  But he has stood by me the entire time and is an amazing man.

I'm looking forward to the next 12+ years!

7 Months Old!

Yesterday Lincoln turned 7 months old.
He is a pretty cute little stink!

Celebrating Easter 2015

This Easter was pretty low-key for us.

The Easter Bunny did make it to our house, though!
He brought all three of us lots of goodies!

Lincoln seemed to like his basket.  

And of course we are the "mean" parents that made him put on the mask that came with his basket.

But that wouldn't be the only ears the little guy would don that day!

As for activities, we had a lovely brunch down at Chris' house with Jon and his family.

Then Andy and I invited Glenn over for our Easter dinner.  We originally planned on taking a picnic down to the park, but the weather wasn't really cooperating, and the little Link was having a killer nap, so we just ate at our house.  

I did get some festive sugar cookies made for the day, though!


Coloring Easter Eggs

On Saturday night we kept up the tradition of coloring eggs for Easter.

This was as close as Linkie ever got to coloring.

We decided to only color one dozen eggs.  So six a piece.

Our finished products.  Nothing too elaborate, but they are still very festive!

We've got to keep up these family traditions!

Random Cuteness

The month of March has been pretty low-key for us.  We haven't had any big activities to write about.  We have mainly been hanging out with our little guy and watching him grow.

Here are some pictures of Lincoln from throughout the month.

New thing:  spitting

Hanging out with mom at work:

He's getting so close to taking off:

We are so glad that we have such a happy little guy!
