Preston's Birthday-The Company

Preston really had a ball at his party. He loved looking out the screen door-from the outside in....

and the inside out! Looks like Anna and Alyssa are trying to tell us something. He loved running around all over the place.
And he especially loved playing in the balloons. Peek-a-boo Dad!!!

Welcome Home Brad

On March 9, 2011 Brad returned home from his mission to the Australia Adelaide mission. We didn't get to go to the airport but saw him later that day.
He's home!!

Brad brought back all sorts of goodies from Australia. Here he is playing his didgeree doo that he bought and had painted by one of the aboriginals. He's pretty good!
The kids loved it!
Looking like Crocodile Dundee!
I love this picture!
Brad showed us the perfect coin pouch with no seams. We couldn't figure out how it was made until Brad revealed what it really was. Yes, it's a coin pouch but it's also a male Kangaroo' get the idea. I threw it as soon as I knew.
And Preston just enjoying some of Aunt Lyndsey's cookies.
We are so glad you are home, Brad!!!

Preston's First Birthday-The Cake

On Saturday, March 5th Preston turned 1!!! We had a family party at Grandpa and Grandma Carter's house to celebrate. I can't believe that our baby is one-this has been the best year of our lives and we were so happy to celebrate our sweet boy.

Preston's own cake

He's excited!

Preston was so timid with his cake. He started picking off a little of the frosting but wouldn't dig in.
It looks like Preston really got into the cake but that was just me trying to help him.
Preston feeding mom and dad :)
Getting cleaned up by Grammy
I wanted to take a stab at making a fondant cake for Preston's birthday. It turned out great and was so fun to do (even when I had to stay up til 2:30am to finish it!)

"What's in here?"
