Everson learning to kick his legs.

Ok, so I might be going a little overboard with the whole posting videos thing. I think it is so fun and I know family members that live far away that don't get to see us very often or ever enjoy watching them. My Dad and Mom are so good about getting their video camera out whenever we visit them or whenever they visit us. I wish I would remember to use our video camera more often. I love the "Jaws" sound effects on this video. Everson would do this all day if I had the energy.

Today was Everson's birthday party. I had asked him a couple weeks ago what kind of birthday party he wanted and he said Elmo, so that is what the theme was. He wore his Elmo shirt and we made Elmo cupcakes and cake. Thank you to my sister, Michelle for helping me with the cake and cupcakes. We had family over for cake and ice cream. Everson decided he didn't want to take a nap earlier in the day so I was just waiting for a break down to happen in the middle of his party which luckily did not happen luckily. We had a great time with everyone. Everson got some good loot which he cannot stop playing with. Thank you to everyone for a fun evening.
Blowing out the the candle. It took him a few tries, but once Todd got him close enough to the candle he was able to blow it out.

We were so happy that Steve, Leslie and Kaylee Hunt were in town and were able to take time out of their busy schedule to come visit us. Everson and Kaylee had so much fun playing with and next to each other.

Todd shoveled 10 yards of dirt with help from a 17 year old young man from our ward to level out our yard. It was a lot of work, but they got it done in under 3 hours. I kicked myself when I realized I hadn't taken any pictures of them shoveling away.
While they were hard at work, Everson and I thought it would be nice to surprise them with some yummy brownies. They were very grateful and so was Everson since I let him lick the spatula, whisk and bowl.

This morning when we woke up I heard a crackle sound every so often and couldn't figure out what it was. It kind of sounded like tree branches hitting a window, but we don't have any trees that close to the house so it obviously wasn't that. I got up and started to investigate. First looking out our bedroom window, nothing unusual that I could see. Then I went downstairs into the kitchen to look out our sliding glass door, nothing there. So then I ventured downstairs. Right as I turned the corner into the room, I saw one of our windows down stairs was just shattered and hanging there with a big hole in the middle. I ran straight upstairs to tell Todd what I had found. The window is double paned, but only the outside pane was broken. It looked like a rock or some object was thrown at the window, but there was no rock that stood out near the window. So there you have it, a mystery as to what broke our widow. Any ideas?

Today we had Zach and Emily over today for a playdate. The boys got along great and seemed to have a lot of fun! Getting out of the house or having people over is a must to change things up for Everson. Zach and Everson had so much fun shooting baskets, going down and up the slide, jumping on the trampolines and riding Eversons bike. It was so much fun! Emily and I had a great time to. There will be more fun days in the near future with Zach and Emily!
Emily and I tried so hard to get the two boys to smile at the camera a the same time. As seen in the pictures, if we got one of them to smile the other had his eyes closed. It was worth a shot.

Just looking at Everson you cannot tell that there is an ounce, actually a quarter, of Asian in him. The Asian side of him comes out other places. He loves rice and could eat it for every meal, and his chopstick skills are quite impressive!

It was Everson's first time playing with playdough today and he loved it. The thing that he loved the most was that he was allowed to use a knife, a playdough knife, to cut the playdough. Everson would not put the knife down for even a second. We started out with six different colors of playdough, but by the end of our playdough time, we were down to four multicolored blobs.
