Feliz Cumpleanos...thats how they say it in Spain!

Today my baby is one! My sweet Mason who is so cuddly and lovable...I can hardly believe it. Mason has bee a huge blessing to our family. He has a super mellow demeanor and he loves everyone. He wrestles with Jax and sits and looks at books with Trace. He lets Kena baby him and loves to be my cuddle buddy. In short, Mason is a perfect fit with our family. This next part is tradition, but rest assured there is so much more that we love about our Mesa Moo.

One of the things we love about Mason:

That smile. He makes you work for it, and I've never been able to do it justice on the camera, but when you win a grin it melts you're heart. Thank you for being my buddy! Happy Birthday Mason!

Down on the farm

Trace has wanted to ride a horse since we moved to Wyoming. He finally got his chance and loved every minute of it.
Jaxson was so funny. He was scared to death of the chickens and goats and turkeys, but as soon as we got to the cows and Clydesdale's he was in heaven. He wanted to pet them and get up funny!

This scale showed the kids how they measured up to the animals. Trace was apparently pretty close to a goat!

Kena milking a cow. They had a plaster cow that had a bottle nipple attached to it so the kids could pretend. It was really cute to see them try.

Jaxson couldn't get enough of this cow. He didn't even want to go see the real animals. He would have been content just to hang out with his cow friend all day!

This weekend we went with Cory's parents to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point. For any of you looking for an inexpensive way to entertain you kiddo's this is a good on. Admission is only 3.75 and the animals are awesome. As an added bonus we were there for the baby animals birthday party...which means there was cake! Woo hoo. We rode horses and played games, and even saw some baby animals. Everyone had a really great time. Thanks for the fun time Grandma and Papa!

We also got to see Grandpa Hadley graduate. We were so proud of him and everyone sat still and quietly through the whole ceremony! Congrats Papa!

Kenadee is 4...

Today my beautiful little girl turns 4! The time has flown and she's such a joy in our home and our life. Our family just wouldn't be the same without her darling dances and her sweet little voice. And now, as is the tradition, we'd like to share with you the top 4 things we love about Kena:
1. Kenadee is all girl. She loves Pink and Purple and anything frilly and ruffly. But she plays pirates and dinosaurs with the best of them! She's the perfect little girl!
2. Trace loves that Kena tells funny jokes. Knock knock are her favorites, by my personal favorite that she tells goes like this, "what do plants say before they start a race? Ready, Set, GO!" (the actual punch line is GROW, but we can't seem to get her to say it, no matter how hard we try) What a girl!
3. Kena sings. I love to hear here little voice ringing out in chorus's of ABC,Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, or even Follow the Prophet. But by far my favorite by far is when she sings the new primary song from this year. There's something about hearing my little girl sing "I KNOW He lives!" that warms my heart.
4. Kena just loves. She's so good with her brothers and patient. She plays with them so well and loves to help with little Mason. She holds and rocks him, feeds him bottles, and just in general loves them all. I can't imagine our family without our little sunshine, Kenadee! Happy Birthday Doll!

Oh Little Playmate...come and play with me!

Blow those candles!
Kena's cake (don't mind the half missing letters...the plastic wrap stuck!)

The Princess's showing off their pretty nails. Gotta love those pretty dresses.

Momma's little ham! I can't get Kena to take a normal picture these days. She's full of poses and funny face...hence this birthday picture!

On Tuesday my sweet little Princess will be 4! And so today we had several of her little friends over to have a princess party. It was a blast and the girls really enjoyed themselves. They decorated crowns, made bracelets, and had their nails done...oo la la!
