This year Tyler had 2 ½ birthday parties, one with her friends from Heber and one with her friends from Santaquin/Payson (and a half of a party with us).

This was the Family Party. We went to Shakey's (a pizza place in AF).
She LOVED it and her favorite pizza was the S'mores :)

I just can’t believe My Little Miss is 10! I am also having a hard time believing she is in Middle School this year. On her Birthday I asked her what was her favorite part about being in the double digits? (Because you know that is the MOST important part about turning 10!) she said her favorite part was she is FINALLY not the only 9 year old in her WHOLE school!!! 
She was hoping we would let her get a face book account now that she is 10, but after talking about it we (Tyler included) decided she should wait just a little longer for FB and text. I guess we (Trav and I) are just not ready to let her grow up that fast, besides she is just fine using mine from time to time.  The other thing she REALLY wanted was a doll with REAL hair, you know the kind you can curl with a curling iron and it won’t melt. Anyone who knows Tyler knows she LOVES to play with hair she will drag her poor friends, brother, brother’s friends, neighbors, and anyone that will let her down to the salon or anywhere else just to do their hair. She is actually pretty darn good. So a doll with real hair was just what she needed.

This was her first Party with her Heber friends and like a stupid (or very sick)
mom that I was I didn't get a picture with all of them together. :(
She had fun and I guess that is all that matters.

She is one happy girl!
She spends HOURS doing her hair. You can curl it ,wash it (and it doesn't get all tangled)
and start all over again. Yep, it is the PERFECT doll!

2nd party that went all night long!

They made fruit/candy pizza

Did really cool nails

And of course each other's hair.
I didn't get pictures, but they also clogged,
 Clogged, CLOGGED ALL night long!!

Brayden's 14th Birthday!

I know I am a little late getting this posted, but here it is...
This is the Birthday boy at a track in SF.
I couldn't get them to look at me and smile, they were to busy racing
Brayden is quite the little man. He is doing AMAZING in Karate and school. Anyone who has an 8th grader know it is not an easy task to get straight A’s, but when he brought his midterms home that is exactly what he had! And when I went to parent teacher night EVERY single one of his teachers told me what a GREAT, POLITE, SMART kid he was. I already knew this, but it is nice to hear it from others (especially ones that are around him all day)His Birthday was pretty low key, all he wanted was a rib dinner so we took him to Texas Roadhouse and he was one  happy boy! Trav also surprised him with a custom (made by Trav and it only took him about 12 hours to make) Ken Block body for his Slash. He was so surprised and excited he almost cried! (don't tell him I told you that)
I am EXTREMELY THANKFUL to report that we are a month into him being 14 and he still thinks we are cool, he tells us all the time that he loves us, and still gives us hugs! (sometimes even around people his own age) What more could we ask for  :)
Love you Brayd!!!!!
