Jaxton James Kidd 1st Birthday

Today is my 1st Birthday! I had a great day. I went swimming with my friends and family. Then we all got McDonald's and came to my house to eat and play. I have two teeth right now that I love to bite my mom with. She calls them "love bites" because they are not super hard but I sure get a kick out of them. I love to play with balls, and I love remotes and pretending to talk to my dad on the phone. When my mom opens the computer I think she is skyping with my dad who is in Afganistan right now. I say "HI DADA!" to the computer. I love to say hi and bye to people and I am learning to say Kee and Wei and inkee for my binkey! I sleep in my moms bed since my dad is gone. I love to laugh and run in the road when I am outside. I had lots of fun on my 1st birthday!! By the way I am constantly living in my diaper. I am a messy eater and its pretty hot here right now so forgive my mom for never dressing me unless we go places...she says it cuts down on laundry or something like that....
Jax has the cutest teeth and his little smile and dimbles are to die for. I adore his blond curls and will be sad if his color changes. He had the most beautiful blue eyes. He melts my heart everyday. I am grateful to have him in my life!!
Jax wasn't sure what to do with this candle. We have been working on blowing on his food the last couple of weeks but with all the excitement I think he forgot.
He sure did enjoy eating his cupcake!

Jax got to skype with Sam during the party so he didn't get to miss the Birthday boy blowing out his candle or eating his cake. It was nice to be able to have him be apart of the party!! 

 My friend Mandy got Jax a box of tissues. He didn't quite know what to do with it. I am sure he will enjoy pulling them out later today

Thanks to my great friends for celebrating this day with us. Wish we could of invited all of my friends here in Wichita. I am very grateful that you all support our family while Sam is away. You help fill that void of not having him here or our families close by!! I am excited for my baby to be 1 but I am sad to see the days of babies leave our home. I believe this is the last 1 year old that we will have unless we get struck by lightning that we are to have more. I am grateful for my beautiful babies that I have been blessed with. I am grateful for a husband that is willing to sacrafice for our country. I am grateful for the gospel and for all my family and friends. THANK YOU!!!

Keely Field Day

eiland and I went to Keely's Field was fun to see her participate and watch her interact with her friends. She was teamed up with her friend Bailey. They had lots of fun calling each other KEE KEE and BAI BAI and they were good sports and let Weiland participate in some of the fun. Keely is such a great joy in my life. She is turning into a very funny, energetic girl. She is a great help and she loves life to the fullest!! She loves her friends and family so much and she shows that everyday. She is definitely getting very sassy. I think she gets that trait from me...I mean her dad!!!

With these toes I am shocked she did not win this event!!
Weiland and Keely in tug of war! Weiland held his own for awhile...and then
Keely let him drag her across the finish line! What a good sister!!
She claims he really did pull her :)

Keely had a Family Fun Night at her school! It was full of games, bouncy houses, pizza and gift baskets. The baskets were all themed and you could buy tickets with your name on it and place them in whatever basket you wanted. Well we bought 18 tickets and put a bunch in all of the family games baskets, summer fun basket etc. We put one ticket in the cooking together basket and guess what...thats the one we won. It had tons of cook books, cooking utencils etc. and a IPOD shuffle. It definitely made our Family F|un Night very fun!! Thanks Cottonwood for a fun evening!! Wish you could of been there Sammy!!

Bed Head

Jax wakes up with the most awesome hair dos. I love how its just one side that is all over the place. It makes my morning to see a huge smile on his face and crazy hair.

Weilands Art Fair

Weiland and I had a date tonight. We went to his Art Fair at school. He is an awesome artist!! I forgot my camera so I had to take pics with my phone. It was fun to have him show my his art and then to have dessert with him at his school. Hes such a sweet boy!! You can tell his teachers adore him. He gave each of them a huge hug! It was a very fun evening with my little man!!
Weiland drew a pic of himself. His was the closest to looking like a real person!

Alien Girl

Keely dressed up as an alien for Alien Day at school. It was a Sunday when she informed me of this so we had to get creative since we didn't want to go shopping. We used cosmetic sponges for the atennas and colored them with markers and glitter paint. Then we cut the toes off some toe socks to make weird skin as she called it and then we put baby headbands on her legs. And to finish it off some makeup around the eyes. We had fun!!

Easter Egg Hunt

We went to Utah for Easter this year since Sam was gone. It was fun to be with family over the holiday weekend to fill the void of not having Sam there. I flew with the three kids by myself and they were awesome both ways!! Thank heaven for good flyers!! On the way there...Keely sat with a girl who let her play with her phone and then on the way home this guy behind me offered to hold Jax for a bit. He had triplets that just left for college so he was missing them and asked me if he could hold Jaxie. Thank you sir!! Jax is quite a hefty fellow so i was all for it! My little sister Karli and her family came down from Vegas to hang with us. Holly and Noah live near my parents so they came and hung out too. Noah is a good cousin and entertained the kids alot. He unfortunately wasn't with us on Easter. We all pitched in for Easter dinner and made ham, funeral potatoes, fruit, deviled eggs, and had ice cream for dessert. It was a funfilled weekend except for ear infections and colds.

Seeing the Kidd Klan

When I took the kiddos to my parents for Easter we got a chance to see my inlaws and the kids cousins. It was a fun day! We went to lunch...easter shopping and then to my parents for some running around in the back yard. Here are all the kiddos!!

Getting Down With Mama Goose

Keely had a first and second grade preformance a couple of weeks ago called "Getting Down With Mama Goose." The songs were so cute and Keely did an amazing job preforming. Its fun to watch her perform because she really gets into the moves and using her mouth to excentuate the words. LOL ...She is very adorable!! So I took pics of her performance but I could not get close enough with two boys and no husband so I got what I could. After the performance I asked her if she wanted to get some pics with her friends and she was very excited. I think that was more fun for her than performing. Oh yeah! Here is a funny story about this boy in her class...

So his name is ....oh crap I forgot what it is....well anyway as we are walking into the preformance her boyfriend (or as she would say with finger quotes he thinks I am his "girlfriend".) Anyway he jumps out of his car in his suit and says "KEELY!! Look!!" and holds his hands out to have her check out his outfit. She is like Ok! This boy is very funny...he says to her "Thank you my love" when she passes out papers in class. Anyway here are some pics with her friends, teachers and principal.

Sam is deploying

So Sam is deploying tomorrow and I thought this would be a fun way to let him see what will happen why he is gone for the next six months. Thanks to my friend emailing me that she started a blog it reminded me of mine. So alot has changed since I last posted and I promise to catch you all up. But my first priority is to post about the next six months so my hubby and my kiddos dad can see what we are up to why he is away. We hope that he enjoys his time away and we plan on doing the same. Whats the saying "why the cats away the mice will play!" Well we plan on doing just that. We love you Sam and be safe. I will also use the blog to keep you all up to date on how he is doing while hes busy serving our country!!

Sam swearing in to the Wisconsin State Bar

Sam swearing in to the Wisconsin State Bar
This was a really neat experience. Sam got to go in front of the Supreme Court Judges and be sworn into the bar. It was kinda intimidating seeing all six judges up there. I would never want to be on trial with those six judges. The court room was awesome with all the beautiful artwork and it was great to see Sam accomplish what he had worked so hard for over the last three years!

Keely's First Day of Kindergarten

Keely's First Day of Kindergarten
Keely has been so ready to go to school since she was 18 months old. She is a brain just like her dad! She was very excited to get into her school clothes and had to have her scarf just so for her first day. She let me drive her the first day but would not let me walk her in. Now she rides the bus to and from school. I can't believe how independent she is. It is very cute to watch Weiland run to her at the end of the driveway and give her a kiss and hug goodbye. They are getting so big it amazes me everyday!! Sometimes its hard to get her to look at the camera. Some of the pics she is focusing on other things. It cracks me up!

My little Picasso

My little Picasso
Weiland was painting the other day and decided to have me paint on his body for him...we had a blast! My son is such a perfectionist that if I did not put it symmetrical to the other arm etc. he would get mad. He is such a character!!
