Ally turns TEENAGER

[Backdated for chronological purposes.]
Her party was a smashing success with the paper-designed fashion show.
 She's looking just a bit happy over all of the awesome presents she received.
 Ally and her best friend
 I loved finding her reading her scriptures on her own for her Personal Progress goals.  She's determined to finish the whole program before too long.  Go Ally!
 Her friends kidnapped her and took her to breakfast as one last hoorah before she left. 
 One of the cards she designed to give to each of her friends as her last hoorah for them! (She'd probably take orders if you like homemade, one-of-a-kind cards. Just don't tell her I referred you.)
 We can't believe you're thirTEEN! 
Happy Birthday, ALLY!!!

High Five for Hyrum

[I'm back-dating this post so that it falls in the right place chronologically.] 
Since life got a little crazy when we decided to move, I was grateful to my neighbors for hosting Hyrum's 5th Birthday party. (They've been amazing neighbors.)  Hyrum requested a heart shaped cake with sprinkles, so that's what he got.  

 Nate grilled up tasty hamburgers and hot dogs.
Darlene dished up all of the other goodies.
 Tyler and Alyssa helping the birthday boy celebrate.
 Ally and McKenna, looking cute.
 What is it?
 Thanks Kayla!
 I can't wait to go fiiiisheeeeng.
Happy Birthday, Hyrum!
