Shae's Golden Birthday!

28 on the 28th. I had a fun-filled day and the big finale was seeing the lights on temple square with Jon, Emmie and Luke. I love my little fam!

It was a marathon birthday since Jono had work off...yeah! We started out by going to the temple in the morning (my amazing sis took on 2 extra kids which meant her morning was most likely chaotic...thanks Ray!) It was a wonderful way to start the day.

Yes, Luke is wearing a hand-me-down coat from Em and it does have pink in it. At least his hat from Andrew looks more "boy."

My best friend Mariah was in town from San Francisco and took me to get a pedicure...yeah! It was such a great surprise for me to find out she was in town for Christmas. I haven't seen her for probably a year. It was so much fun...Thanks Marye! And yes, you can see my wonkie toe in this picture :) I asked Emmie which color nail polish I should get and she said blue! So, that was my present to Em as I knew she would be one of the only people who would see my toes and appreciate them in the winter anyway!

My darling Jon watched the kids and I came home to this (it was 6pm...perfect time for napping!) Thank you Jon for making this day so great...especially for facing the parking battle at temple square! Love you!

Then we went to Kneaders for dinner. We love their French dip (and of course all their pastries: see picture below)

My sis-in-law Erin surprised me with Peacock flowers (I love them) and Jon got me a new phone with a keyboard so I won't take 20 minutes to write a five word text! Thank you to everyone who called, left messages, emailed or texted me....It made my day!

P.S. Jon's Christmas present to himself:

Lukie's First Birthday

My baby turned one on November 29th. It has been a fun couple of months with all the holidays and birthdays. I cannot believe how big my little boy is! He took his first few steps on his very birthday. Then on Christmas Day we realized that he is pretty much walking (ya know, the duck waddle with a huge smile and still several falls). He is so stinkin cute! And yes, his hair is still his very best feature!!

He got a doggie cake this year! That was his first word ("Da"). He gets so excited every time we see one.

He had no problems enjoying his cake!

There's that Featherstone look!

Oh how I love being a mommy to this boy :)

The Sunday before his birthday, GraMare made a birthday dinner for him. Here he is with Emmie's help to blow out his candle.

Yum....where is his bib with his new sweater??

The feathie fam....do we really have two kids and we haven't quite been married 4 years??....well it will be four years in a couple of days!

Snuggle time with Daddy

During the day on Luke's birthday, we went sledding in our backyard (yes, I like to call the apartment courtyard our backyard just to make me feel more at home!)

Emmie is a snow bug! She loves it.

And there's my sweet little Lukie! He has the biggest smile that always melts my heart.
