Dear Mason,

My little boy is getting big too fast! Having you around has been so fun Buddy, I love to watch you play with all your cars, action figure guys, guns, tools, rocks, etc, etc.. You are ALL boy and I love it! You love your daddy so much, it is so cute, I am so happy for both of you that you have your relationship. Some of my favorite things about you are: your HUGS, sense of humor, expressions, silliness, smooth fighting moves, stories, laugh, beautiful eyes, energy, smile, creativity and your KISSES. Your vocabulary has exploded lately and it is so fun to hear all of your new words.

You are such a blessing to our family Mason, you melt our hearts daily, you are loved so much!
Happy 3rd birthday Buddy!
Love, Mom.

Some of your favorite things right now are:  Daddy, Sponge Bob, watching your dad play Street Fighter, play fighting, iPhones or i pod's, DS, Iron man, Hannah, ice cream and CHOCOLATE milk.
We celebrated your 3rd birthday at the "Famous" Chuck E Cheese and then came home and had cake and ice cream.

"Papa" Time

Front Page

Madisyn made the front page on the Omaha World Herald. We teased her about being the poster child for "Organizational failings" and she quickly replied, "1st of all that was the testing scores for last years 8th graders, 2nd, I always score in the" Exceeds grade level".. thank you very much!"

Being on the front page of the newspaper doesn't happen everyday.. Very cool, if I must say so myself!

Grandma and Grandpa's Visit

Grandpa and Grandma Hobbs came out for a visit the last week of August we had a great visit with them and got to do a lot of fun things. Our favorite was our trip to Cartridge jail.  The spirit was so strong there, it was an amazing experience to be sitting in such a sacred place. We also went to Nauvoo, shopping, out to eat at some yummy restaurants,  Winter Quarters and downtown to have lunch with Mike.  We are very thankful for visits from our loved ones!!

While Grandma and Grandpa Hobbs were visiting we did a quick little trip to Nauvoo. It was a great trip, we'll be making another trip out there again,we ran out of time and we missed seeing a lot of things.

Easy Peezy

It will be three weeks this Monday that Mason's been going potty on the toilet like a big boy! He was a gem to potty train, he had a handful of accidents, he has stayed dry at nap time and bedtime since day one and has had no problem with the number two situation. What's all this talk that boys are so much harder to train. No more diapers for this Momma... WHEW!!!

Steamboat Springs

We spent a week in Steamboat Springs with my family. Meridee and Brandon got us a beautiful two bedroom condo. The condo had  beautiful pools, basketball court and volley ball court that we took full advantage of. We spent the days hiking up to a beautiful waterfall,  the Hot Springs, shopping, sitting by the pool, and Steamboat Lake where we did  paddle boating. It was a great trip with a lot of great memories made.
