Danielle's Debut with the West Jordan Symphony Orchestra

Don't have a whole lot of details but it sounds like the concert was quite the success.  Chris even said it was pretty good. Get ready for the Christmas Concert coming up.  Dani will keep us informed!

Congratulations Dani!  We're proud of you!  

Or as Chris would put it, "Nerdfest Concert!"
Dani's right in the middle next the the cello players doing nuthin'

Are these performers with Dani or just some of the "nerds" that showed up in costume?

According to his dad, Nathan spent most of the time slapping Grandpa Bruce around.

Looks like they're having a good time to me!

Proud Grandma & Grandpa

Miss Payton's Birthday Bash!

Well the big ta-doo was last Saturday and it was quite the event.  Miss Payton was all dressed up in her new Birthday Party dress and was quite the sensation!  The theme for the party was Alice in Wonderland complete with a Cheshire Cat cake, cupcakes displaying the message "Eat Me" on top and plenty of little kids running around to keep Payton amused for the duration.

Although our guest of honor was fresh from her morning nap we had to consider that she is still only a year old and would soon start showing signs of sensory overload so after mingling with her many guests, we went straight to the birthday cake and the Happy Birthday Song. 

Emerson was quick to take care of blowing out the candle for her without batting an eye so the candle was re-lit for Payton to give it her best shot.  

Unfortunately, she surprised us all by quickly reaching for the candle and putting the flame out with her 2 little pincers! Ouch!  Nobody saw that coming but she was soon busily opening her many gifts.

Happy Birthday Sweetie Pie!

Soon after completing the task and having a snack and some delicious cake, it was clear the Birthday Girl was ready for another nap!  Though a relatively short party, we all had a great time celebrating this little sweetheart who came into our lives just a year ago and stole all our hearts away!  Happy Birthday Payton!
