First Days of School and Birthday fun!

Hannah's first day of school was on Tuesday and she was so excited! Now that the first week has passed, we are happy to report she loves her teacher and is loving school! I did tear up on Wednesday because it was the first day of ALL DAY school for her. I didn't even get sad when she started Kindergarten, but I did for 1st grade. Zach also started a little pre-school on Thursday and he LOVES it! He didn't want to come home on Thursday, and I had to pick him up and carry him out. hahah




School started which means, Zach's birthday! He turned 4 on Wednesday and Darn it! He's just so darn cute! Jon took the boys to Home Depot on Saturday morning (Zach's birthday party day) and they came home in these cute Home Depot aprons! I about died, they looked so cute! For months he has been talking about either a Teletubby cake or a Diego cake. So when we finally sat down to pick one, he ended up wanting a ball cake! hahaha Go figure! He got a new baseball glove and ball for his birthday, so it worked out that I had planned a sports theme when in reality it just so happened what I had! Here are a few pics of the cake and kids!
This last week has been so much fun but already it's getting busy! Soccer has started, school has started, and free time has been cut. I hope everyone is doing well and I'll update soon.

Tell Jonny (Rod, Barb and everyone else) we are sorry to hear about grandpa bud, or uncle-uncle bud (does that make him great uncle to me?) in my case. My grandma is sad but I hear he wasn't living an extremely happy life, maybe he is feeling better now. We love ya, stay happy!

Hi, you don't know me, but I heard about you from Jennie Heileson. We are her friends from Iowa that have now moved to Michigan. She said you were awesome. I don't know if she ever told you about me! I ran into your blog from her site. Check out my site! I need to know fun things to do in Michigan!

Hi Bella, this is Jenni Farmer from the good old days in Albuquerque in the Lexington Apartments and the Sandia Ward. I have kept up with Donna over the years and I noticed you posted on her birth blog so I wanted to say hello. I remember you and Jonny and when i saw the picture of you two on your blog it really brought back memories of ward activities and basketball at the church and young womens. So anyways hi. If you want to jog your memory a little, I wouldn't feel bad if you don't remember me, so check out my blog thefunnyfarmers.blogspot.com. My husband, Ryan looks the same but the poor guy even though he's only 34 has lots of gray hair! Cute family you have and it sounds like you are in Michigan huh. Wow, we are here in Utah back to our roots and our families. Take care.

I found your blog... awesome.. Now I can keep better tabs on ya!

By the way... i look like crap after camping too!

Keep in touch BABY!

I can't believe Jon figured out it was us just by looking at Halen't picture! I have never really thought she looked like me, but obviously she does huh!

So what do you both do there in Michigan? Ryan is a pharmacist at Sam's club and I get to stay home with the kids. I LOVE IT! I am the Primary president in our ward so that keeps me REALLY busy...its a full time job in and of itself.
