A few words ...

So... I need to come clean about something...

I have been very troubled lately because my mommy keeps telling me I need to share with others.

At first I was like what is she talking about? I always share...

Then she showed me all the photos in the camera. Some would call it a "smile" and say I don't share them very much. In fact a lot of you have probably only seen me share faces like this.

It all makes sense now, so I thought I'd share with you what my mommy calls her "little treasures".

Pay attention because I don't give these out very much.

Did you get all that?

And she says I don't share

Noa's 1st Birthday

This last weekend we celebrated Noa's 1st Birthday. He was born 08-08-08. We can't believe it has already been a year! Time flies, and it sure has been an adventure. I put some slide shows of him growing up on the side bar if you want to take a look. Otherwise here are some pics from his bday.

My parents couldn't be here for his party so on his actual bday they took him out to eat, got him a book, and took him to the park. His favorite thing to do is swing and when my mom was pushing him he started to fall asleep so she took him on some more exciting rides.

The park was Discovery park in Pleasant Grove. It has a really great playground. My dad ran to every window of this castle to pose with Noa for a picture. They both thought that was pretty funny. It was fun hanging out with them and Noa enjoyed the one on one time with his grandparents. Thanks mom and dad for making his bday special.

We held his party later in the month so Tau's family could come out. We went to Scera Park in Orem and had a BBQ. Tau and his cousin Rob were at the grill the whole time and I don't even know if they got to eat. Thanks guys, you rock! The food was delicious. We had teri burgers, teriyaki steak, bbq chicken, hot dogs, chop suey, taro, mac salad, craisin salad, fruits and veggies. Basically a lot of food. It was yummo. I really put Tau's family to work and they did a great job.

I didn't actually get a picture of Noa eating his cake, but this is what he looked like afterwards. You can see the blanket he ate on. He destroyed the cake and had fun throwing it everywhere, but I think he only got two bites in his mouth. Yah, that was fun to clean up.

After cake, we opened presents. Noa got spoiled. Thanks everyone. He loved all his toys and cried when we tried to load them in the car. One of his presents helps him to walk. He's been pushing it around the house ever since. I'm really excited to see if he'll be walking solo soon.

The adults set up a volley ball net and played into the evening, but Noa had seen enough excitement for the day. He finally fell asleep and had a nice little cat nap before we went home. It was a very nice party. Thanks to all those who came and celebrated with us. Also thanks for bringing things and helping out. We love you all.

Happy Birthday little Noa! Mommy and Daddy love you!
