We chose Hot Pink and Black as the colors

Lance and I decorated Lexi' locker. She was so excited and happy!

We asked the girls to come as their favorite music artist, prepared to perform. Lexi came as herself!

Opening her gifts

Beautiful Girl!

We had family over for dinner a couple of days later. She loves being around all her relatives. She loves lots of noise and chaos!

A couple of weeks before her birthday, we surprised her with tickets to the Taylor Swift concert! She was beyond excited! She said it was the best day ever!

Posing with Taylor!

Lexi and I

Lexi loved the concert so much! Taylor really put on a good show!

Lexi is such a sweetheart. I can't believe that she is 14! Where has the time gone? Lexi is such a caring girl. She loves being around her friends and is a good friend. We don't know how we got so lucky to have such a sweetheart. She always thanks me for everything that is given to her. She is so generous. She always wants to do the right thing.
Lexi LOVES, LOVES, LOVES music! She would rather buy music then anything else. She is so talented at learning the lyrics. She can listen to a song once or twice and know the words. Music is her passion! I am the luckiest mom in the world to be blest with such a wonderful daughter as she is!

Lexi with the YW

We all attended Lexi's YW in Excellence last week. They made it into an awards ceremony, and the girls got to dress up in formal wear. Lexi was so excited to dress up. We were able to find a dress at the mall on clearance for $20!!!! I just LOVE a bargin! I had to take it in quite a bit, but it was worth it! She looked so beautiful that night. We are go proud of Lexi and the decisions that she makes everyday. She is such a strong person and always willing to stand up for the right. She is loving YW's!!!! They have such a great group of girls!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am so thankful for so many things! I was very grateful to be able to spend Thanksgiving with my family. We had so much fun! We had a shooting compitition. We shot clay pigeons and ballons. The kids had a blast. We each got 5 shots. The best out of 5 won. I am so proud of my man, he got 5 out of 5!!!!! he beat out all of my brothers, brothers in law and my dad! He doesn't even shoot that much, but has a huge talent for it! I always love spending time with my family. We have such a great time together. I am so grateful that they are a huge part of my life!

David Archuleta Concert!

Lexi was thrilled to be able to attend the David Archuleta Concert with her Uncle John, Aunt Kindra and her cousin Aria. She was even more excited to be able to go back stage and meet him! Her uncle John produced some of his songs for a couple of albums, so he was kind enough to invite Lexi to the concert. She was so excited and even decorated a T-shirt especially for him!!!

Sister weekend in Seattle!

I got to spend the weekend in Seattle with 2 of my sisters, Tricia and Dani! Tricia and her husband cody and their baby Max, moved to Seattle about 2 months ago. Cody is going to Grad school up there. My sister Dani (who is a travel agent) treated me to a trip with her to see Trish. The reason why she was so nice to do this is that I helped her paint her new basement! I loved this payment!!! It was so good to see Trish! I miss her so much! We also got our hair done. I REALLY miss her for that!!!! She showed us some beautiful sights. It was really cold, but we still had a great time. The only thing that would have made it the best, is if our sis Melissa could have been with us. She just couldn't get away this time. I want to make it a tradition for us as sisters to get away one weekend a year!

Happy 12th Birthday Lexi!

Happy 12th Lexi!

Lexi celebrated her 12th birthday on Oct. 21st. I can't believe that my baby is 12. She is the joy of our lives. We weren't blessed with quantity but quality! She has such a wonderful spirit about her and is so much fun to be around. She has great friends and is loving her school this year. She is so excited to be going into young womens. I remember so clearly going into yw's. I can't believe that I have a child that is old enough to be going.

We had a family party on her official birthday. She got to get out of school for half the day and Lance and I took her to Boondocks. That night we had family come over for cake and ice cream. She loves having her cousins around her, she then feels like she has a lot of siblings. Friday night she had a friend Fashion Show Party! They came ready to stut their stuff. We had a run way for the girls and took pictures. They got to then make a portfolio of themselves to take home. I made purses for all the girls to have (I had so much fun doing those)! They ate chocolate fondue, and just had a blast! I think that she had a great birthday week!!!!

Labor Day

Lexi decided that she wanted to go bowling on Labor day. Lance and I kind of have a love, hate relationship with any kind of competitve sports. I am a very competitive person, so from the first time we went bowling or mini golf or any kind of game like those, my fiery self comes out. over the years, I have mellowed out. I used to kick his butt, whenever we would go play, (just kidding)! Lexi has definetly taken after us in the competitive spirit. She does not like to lose, but who does!!!! We had a great time. Our first game Lance won with 133 , I came in second with 113, and Lexi got 106. Our second game I won (woo, hoo) with 129, Lance with 118, and Lexi got 79!
