Brave boy

Parker had to go to the doctor for his 1 year check up this week. He had to get his shots and then they also had to draw some blood. This is the first time that they have taken it out of his arm. Before they just took it from his foot. I do not do well with the whole blood being drawn thing. So I am standing there holding Parker down and trying not to look, because if I do I know I will faint, and then trying to get him to look at me and not at the blood. He is such a funny kid because once the needle was in his arm he only wanted to watch the blood going down the tube. I couldn't believe it! He just laid there all calm and watched. He started crying again when they took the needle out, but still wow. I was impressed. So after all the shots and the blood being drawn I told Parker that we could go to McDonald's and get some french fries for him. It is his favorite. Once he was done eating his french fries we headed back to the car to go home and he threw up... needless to say it was a very hard day on him.

New Post!!

We have been very busy these last few weeks and our blogging has suffered because of it. Well Parker had his first birthday!! We had a birthday party for him and he got lots of books and toys. He even had his own cake. I made him this ducky cake. The duck was his cake and then everyone else got to share the "water" cake. We had lots of fun and were glad that so much of our families could make it.

Then the next day I gave April a baby shower. Everything went well and I think everyone liked the food. So needless to say I am partied out for a while. I also want to thank Amanda and Kylie for all their help!

Breaking Dawn

Well I finished Breaking Dawn and I of course it was wonderful. I was a little weary of it in the beginning, but it ended up being great (I mean really how could it not be?). Well as for other news my sister Kiersten came down from Utah for a visit and we are so excited to see her and spend time with her. She is going to be here until Thursday and then she is going home, which works well for us because we will be going to Bullhead City, AZ to visit Steve's family and to go boating. Steve had his birthday on Saturday and he got a bunch of new clothes and a new World of WarCraft character.
