I have been slacking on the blog posts, but here's a little update.
Just a cute picture of Jacoby yesterday after we cleaned the church. He was a good boy while we were cleaning and just followed Tyler around while he emptied all the garbages and me while I vacuumed. He brought his big train toy and pushed it all over the place. He was thirsty and so we got a drink for us to share. He wasn't very interested in sharing though.
Tyler's family came to visit this past weekend and we had a great time. They are so good to us and do so many nice, thoughtful things for us and we really appreciate it. When they first got here, Savannah surprised me with a little box containing TWO Cocoa Bean cupcakes. I pretty much love her. We shopped a lot and found a really great mall, went swimming, ate a lot, and went to a Diamondbacks baseball game. We know it's a long drive from Idaho, but we're so glad they came to see us. It's so fun having visitors.
Savannah and Taylor stayed with us and took turns sleeping in the trundle next to Jacoby's bed. I thought they were pretty sweet and had to get a picture.
At the baseball game, Jacoby liked to climb up on this baseball and jump off. Sometimes he is too brave.
These next few pictures have some really scary red eyes I can't get rid of, but other than that, it's a great shot of the family.

On the way to the game we were driving on a road called Thomas, so I wanted a picture. I would've liked to get out and get in the picture, but we were at a stop light. By the way, Thomas is doing really well and working harder than ever. It makes the time go by so much faster knowing that he is so happy where he is. He is a great example to me and I love and miss him so much.
Thank you everyone for the kind birthday wishes on my birthday last week. It's nice to know that I haven't been forgotten about even if we moved so far away. My family made it a wonderful day even from afar. I was able to Skype with my mom and sisters, talk to my friends, grandmas, aunts, dad, sisters, and so many others. It really means a lot and I love ya all! Jacoby and I went shopping for a little while and got some ice cream. Later I went to Famous Dave's with Tyler while my wonderful friend Brooke watched Jacoby. (It's been great to have a friend down here in Arizona that I already know.) The food there was great!
I received so many nice gifts on my birthday: orange plates, clothes, jewelry, cake plate, sprinkles holder, frosting tips, money, gift cards, movie, decorations, and chairs for our table. Thank you everyone. :)
I love this holder that Steph gave me. She also gave me an awesome set of frosting tips I've had on my wish list for a long time. Now I can make pretty cupcakes, but definitely won't be as awesome as her cupcakes.
A cute necklace from Livi and Annie with a fun bracelet.
I'm in love with this cake plate. Becca knows me so well because this has my name written all over it. Can't wait to use it. It'll be fun to switch out the ribbon for different holidays or parties.
Spending my birthday with one of my favorite people. Love ya, bud!

It sounds like you are doing pretty well there without us. I am so glad! I miss you so much, but as long as you are doing okay, it's okay. It is nice that the Roes drove so far and that you were able to do so many fun things. Love the picture of Jacoby on Tyler's shoulders and the one of Savannah holding Jacoby's hand while they were sleeping. How sweet!

I can't wait until we get to come visit you. Love ya!!!
Oh, did you buy anything with your birthday money yet? Let me know what you get!

Missy... where did Becca find that cake plate?! I've been looking for one just like that! The only one I've seen even close to it was in UT but it wasn't big enough! I'd LOVE to know. Looks like a great birthday full of cute things! Just like you!

Oh, how I love those orange plates! I've gotta get me some of those. Glad you had a good time with Roes!

Holly, I just saw your note, and I got the cake stand at ... Ross. Lucky find, I guess. :) And it's definitely big enough for a cake.
