Happy Birthday Delaney!!!

Tomorrow is Delaney's birthday and to celebrate she invited a few of her friend to the house on Saturday and had a Tea Party. Lesley Sparks helped us by designing the CUTEST invitation for her event. Thanks so much Les it turned out cute. Kenz and Delaney decorated the back porch with the cutest turquoise and yellow ribbons, tablecloth and more. The dishes used came from Grandma Vest's collection and really might be about 60 or so years old.

Menu included: White chocolate dipped strawberries with turquoise and yellow polka dots, frozen lemonade, chicken sandwiches on yellow and turquoise bread, and fruit kabobs including grapes, peaches, strawberries and watermelon. Ooohhhh it was so delicious. The girls played a "Do you know Delaney game?" and had a riot. Here were the questions let's see how many of you know Miss Delaney.

1. What does she want to be when she grows up?

2. Is she a morning or night person?

3. Does she prefer summer or winter?

4. How many pairs of shoes does she have?

5. What is she going without during the year 2010?

Go ahead and take a stab at the answers. We got a kick out of some of them. Sure love our little Delaney and hope she has a fabulous number 11.

Kenzie is a TEENAGER!!!!!

We can't believe that our cute little Kenz is a teenager today. Well, she always has had the desire to talk with the adults more than the kids and is a more responsible parent than her dad is most of the time.Cooper wanted to tell her to have a great one teenage girl and I hope that you come through with all of your goals this summer. I love you, Cooper. Boston simply couldn't live without his othermother. Kenz takes such good care of him and is a great example for him. We just looked at the clock and it says 11:22 pm the exact minute Kenz was born at Orem Community Hospital. Delaney wants to shout out and let her know she luvs to hang with friends and now that she's a full on teenager she can throw diva tantrums.

13 favorite things about McKenzie Vest

1. Great smile

Does that doggy have a home?

Tonight we were in the car and we passed a cute little puppy walking on the side of the road and Boston at first just said that he wanted the puppy and that it was lost and it was our lost puppy. Well, we thought nothing of it until about ten minutes later he started to cry and he told me that he wanted the puppy to have a home. My mom tried to calm him down but talking about the puppy made it worse. He started to say that it was lost and it wouldn't find it's home and then my mom said that it's home was just around the corner, but Bosti wasn't buying it. He finally said that the dog catchers would come and get the puppy and so I told him that there are nice and mean dog catchers and that the ones here are the nice ones. We then started talking about something else and he cheered right up! I love how much he loves animals and wants them safe (and in a home!!)

The Play, Vegas, and More Baseball!

This post contains many things but feel free to look it over!
Cooper's baseball team at their tournament in Vegas!! It was so much fun!

The whole cast from the play I was in,"The Perfect Princess Pageant". I had so much fun participating. I was the Fairy Godmother.

Me and Cinderella
(I needed a picture with my beautiful princess!)

Me and my Mom

This picture was at the mall in Vegas and we found this tent and me and Delaney sat on either side of Boston and kissed his cheeks! As you can see he was pretty excited about it!

Coop's Baptism!

Here is a post about a very special day for Cooper that happened TWO MONTHS AGO!! I'm way too lazy!!
We tried to get a picture of the family. Boston is looking down and the rest of us in all other directions! Oh well!
This is everyone that came to the baptism. Thank you to all of these people!! We sure love ya!!!

Is It Spring?

The sprouts.
The buds.
Yes these have been in our yard for about a month but I couldn't find time to post.
We are hoping they just keep coming and hope the sun comes too!
Until then I guess we can still enjoy our pants instead of shorts!

Tribute to Annette and the Kids

I figured it's my turn(Scott) to post for once and so here goes a post dedicated to the ones that I love more than any other:

Annette: Love to get a mid morning text or phone call from her. Whenever I see her name come across my phone it still makes my heart skip a beat and I love to hear her friendly and happy voice on the other end. Love it when she leaves messages as well. Great smile, fantastic laugh, beautiful face, and best friend. Great travel partner even if it's just to the grocery store to pick up some eggs and milk late at night. I'm so excited to see the tulips bloom that she planted last fall.

McKenzie: The one who really keeps this blog a float. Great smile and awesome personality. She is such a disciplined girl and I love it when we get to spend one on one time together especially early in the morning like this morning when we stopped by Crisp's to pick up a pie so she could get a little extra credit in class(like she needs extra credit). Love that she is so responsible and I'm so excited to see her play the Fairy Godmother in the play this Spring.

Delaney: Her name says it all. Great smile and a wonderful friend to so many. Good listener and I loved the way she listened to her sister Kenz as she told us about an interesting experience she had at school last week. I learned a lot about the great friendship that our daughters have and learned even more about how they aspire to be like their mom someday. Thank goodness Annette is such a good one. Love the way Delaney gets along with so many different types of people.

Cooper: Energetic and hard to keep up with. Wade says he's the king of "one more." Whether it be a fly ball, basketball shot, grounders, or some swings at practice he loves to get in just one more rep. We were at Fabulous Freddy's last week in St. George and I couldn't pry his hands off the March madness hoop set up around the Pepsi cans. Loves to play games and worked hard to earn some money to buy the New Super Mario game. So fun to coach him and see him develop in sports and in school.

Boston: He loves pre-school and is so excited every Tuesday and Thursday when he gets to go to school with his buddy Canyon. Loves to wear his Boston Red Sox jersey and his David shoes from Sandlot II. Comes up with some of the greatest one liners in four year old history. Latest is during family council dad said he was flying to Vegas to do some work and Boston said "You can't fly to Vegas dad you don't have wings." Annette said he's definetely not a Vest child from the SkyWest travel era. Has great dimples when he smiles and loves to play like he's an animal.

Simply said, it's a pleasure to have such a fun family and I love being a husband and dad. As our buddy Kenny Chesney says "Don't Blink". Enjoy every minute and don't forget to learn from yesterday, LIVE for today, and look forward to tomorrow.
