Did you hear the Buzz???

Levi Turned 3 Yesterday! And what a busy day we had! We had tons of fun and Levi was worn out!!!
Luke trying on Levi's birthday present!
Sorry the pictures are kind of out of order and crazy! But here is Levi opening gifts at his Buzz Lightyear Birthday party.

Levi holding best friends, Buzz and Woody!
Levi got in the mail a Woody sent all the way from California from the Hamilton's. He was so excited to get this gift! He said, "Oh, Woody and Buzz are best friends!" He ran over and got Buzz so they could say hello to each other. It was really cute, he hasn't let Woody out of his sight since, (except for church we wouldn't let him take it to church!) Thank you Hamiltons!
Levi was also really excited to open his gift from Kurt, Polina, and Anastasia. He has already learned to trace lines and will be seriously potty training very soon! Thank you!!!
Jake, Levi, and Maria at Levi's party trying to do a Buzz Lightyear puzzle.
Our little green alien cupcakes. I didn't get a close up at the party so this is a day late and they were much cuter at the party! But you get the point!
Levi opening his gun and transformer from Dani and Jose. He sure loves his new toys!
More gifts!
Buzz's rocketship birthday cake.

A toss the beanbag game but with snake beanbags into Woody's boot!
Favor bags
The food was the most creative part. I don't know if anyone even paid attention but I had fun putting it all together. We had things like, "Jessie's rope" (licorice rope) "Bullseye's favorite treat" (apples and dip) "Mr. Potato Chips?" (potato chips) "Woody's boots and spurs" (stars and boots rice crispy treats) "Hamm's little piggies" (bacon wrapped cocktail dogs) "Sliky dogs watering bowl" (water) and a few more.

Birthday party invites! I found them on Etsy and I thought they were so cute! We had a fun day and I am exhausted! Thank you everyone for coming to the party, the phone calls, and gifts! Levi was so excited and it was his best birthday yet!

Levi the Photographer

Over the last two or three months, Levi is constantly asking for my phone so he can take pictures of anything and EVERYTHING!  I thought some of the pictures are actually good while most are completely random and show his love of self...haha.  Here is a selection:
A picture of his Toy Story 3 Camera!

Wow, there are only two toys on the ground?  Let's take a picture!

How would daddy look upside down?

Man daddy, move your big butt so I can see the football game!

Oh crud, now Luke can pull himself up and get my toys!

I call this look "Sleeping with my tongue out" by Levi Skelton

I wonder if Mommy knows I'm taking a picture of her watching TV?

Niagara Falls...j/k, this is our bathroom sink...doesn't it look cool!?

I'm not even sure when he took this one, but whatever it was turned out to look like a sunset!

Surprise Luke!  What's that? The flash is too bright?  Nah, just smile next time!

Mommy and Luke out on the lawn on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Hey look!  Bugs!  I'm gonna squash 'em!

Daddy's pocket...I wonder what's in there.

Luke finally got mommy's phone without her knowing!

"Hey, come back here with that phone you little stinker!" Mommy says.  "Uh oh, I'd better run!"  I said.

As part of my duties as a terrible two, I must practice sticking out my tongue to get the best reaction out of people!

I want to get my beautiful face AND the beautiful sunset in the background.

I love capturing daddy's crazy moments!

Party Time

Luke 8 months old.
Adam and Bekah came through and stayed with us last Tuesday night on there way back to Utah from South Carolina. It was really fun seeing them. We had dinner and played games.
The Candia family also joined the party and it was fun seeing them too. We haven't seen them is a while and Baby Jakob is getting sooo big. He is already caught up to Luke and will be passing him in size very soon!
Great minds think alike! Dani and I had Jake and Luke both dressed in the very same outfit for the night! They looked cute and it was fun getting them together!

Ready for Church

Lemon Cheesecake?!?! Yes I made this and forgot to take a picture before we started diving in. But it was amazing if I may say so myself! Sorry it is all gone as of yesterday! We couldn't help ourselves. This will be a once a year occasion as we liked it a little too much!
Levi and Luke ready for church in there matching outfits!!! I love these two little fellows!!!

Mini Trail Family Reunion

Meet Aunt Florence! This is my Grandpa Trail's sister. I never met my Grandpa as he died when he was 54. This my dad's only living relative in the generation above him. (I don't know if that even makes sense.) She is now 90 and that is why we all went to the party! This is my Aunt Debbie (my dad's younger sister), Great Aunt Florence, and my Dad.

This is who was able to come from my extended family... not too many of us but it was sure fun to see everyone who was able to make it. We had a great afternoon and then drove to Estes Park for dinner and fun that evening. I sure loved meeting my Grandpa's sister although I don't know him and I don't even really know her but fun!!!
