Skyler's 8!


So Skyler turned 8 last month and was baptised. He is such a good boy, I am so proud of the young man he is turning out to be. He has such a strong testimony and a desire to serve his Heavenly Father. I am so lucky that he is my boy, he has grown up way to fast. I want him to know how much I love him, I know I complain sometimes at night when he wants me to tell him just one more story or snuggle just a little longer, but I know the days of him wanting me to lay in his bed and snuggle will be gone before I know it. I am sad that my scanner is not hooked up otherwise I could put a picture of him from each year of his life in this post, he was seriously the cutest baby ever. I love you Skyler, CTR!

Hey Alison- thanks for commenting on my blog! I know who you are silly- Michael speaks very highly of you!
Your kids are seriously adorable! Happy belated b-day to your son! I love that picture and how the flash reflecting in the window makes it look like he is sparkling~!
SO if you guys are in Yuma now, we would love to have you guys over sometime- I will see if Michael has your number and give you a call!

He is a handsome kid! I love how the camera made that shiney glow thing behind him. How appropriate for a Baptismal picture. Are we really that old to have kids that are getting baptised now? Where did the time go?

Aww Ali, I can't believe you and Audi have 8 year olds either! They do grow up too stinking fast! I'm glad we're still at baby making age. I'm going to be so sad when that last one hits 8. Wahhh!!
