I have to admit that I always thought it was cheesy how sentimental moms can be over silly things in a childs development. Now that I am a mommy everything has changed. We cut Ethan's hair this last week and I mourned over it. It was so hard to see his long curly hair go away. Of course I kept a lock, the long part in the fron that lately has been getting into his eyes. Seeing his hair change made me realize how much he is growing up and how much I miss him being that cute cudly infant.
We recently went to Utah because my sister Becca aka "The Squeak" came home from her mission. It was so nice to see her again. We missed her so much!! We also realized how much we miss the sunshine here in Portland. It was sunny, not warm, but very sunny the whole trip. The morning we drove back to the airport one of the most beautiful things in nature occured. Its the hoarfrost that occurs. The trees were astounding. Here are some pictures of it.

We this past weekend was Ethan's first birthday. While I am sure he ahs no clue what is going on he definitly enjoyed tasting the cake and icecream and lets not forget the vacuum. I know, our precious child is in love with our vacuum and so what id we get him, his own personal cleaning tool that sings a song as follows: 'I'm going to vacuum all day long, do dah do dah..."
And joining him in party was Ehtn's grandparents and great-grandma and the Dan and Adrian. Clair and Ethan got to play together for the first time.
