Madie, Merry thanksgiving, Much too Many pictures

I just looked at the picture of Henry in the bathtub below and a Brittany Spears song just came to mind and I automatically changed the words in my head, "I'm not boy, not yet man."  Sorry, glimpses into my head can be scary.

 I did not do this to my son, that was my husband.  Just in case someone is going to report us for abuse.  I know not to put my kid into a dryer :)
 Chilling on campus.
 I turned around for 20 seconds tops and he's gotten into the oats.  I'm still cleaning it up.

 Doing a man's work :)

As for the series of next pictures.  My sister-in-law, Madie, got home from a 1.5 year long mission to England.  She came to visit us for a week and a half.  At some point during that time she felt the need to take pictures of herself with my phone.  As a result... I will post them here :)  Love ya sista.

 Madie was here for a week when everyone else came to celebrate Thanksgiving!  It was actually a really great time.  It was so nice to have Jane, Lyle, Pa, Mimi, and Madie here.  Madie had us all make a list of 5 people (alive) that we would like to have lunch with.  Mine: Julie Andrews, Denzel Washington, Oprah Winfrey, Julie B. Beck, Chuck Norris. Oh ya. 
 Papa and Nan gave Henry some cool birthday gifts.  He LOVES cars and trucks :)

 We made bread and rolls.  And they rocked.
 The whole gang!
 Da food!

 Henry with Pa and Mimi :)  The hat and Wooly the Wolf were gifts from them.
 Woah!  Look at that Jedi! 
 This hiking pack has been AMAZING!

I love the holidays, I love family, and I love Jesus.  My life... is awesome.

Henry Turns 1!!!

You know how when you're growing up it always seems like the younger sibling gets privileges sooner or better than you did?  Like, when I was 10 I went to bed at 8 o'clock but my little sister Emmee who is 10 goes to bed at 10 o'clock (I'm not actually sure how true this is but I'm just illustrating a point).  Well, it gets worse when you have your own kids.  My son, now at the ripe old age of 1... went to Disneyland for his first birthday.  I know, I know it sounds ridiculous.  But sometimes the grandparents just can't help it.  It's a serious condition I call wowilovemygrandsonsomuchmorethanmyactualchildreniamgoingtogivehimeverythingheneedswantsanddoesntwantjusttomakesureheisasspoiledaspossible syndrom.  But to be honest, I'm really ok with it.  Because I LOVE DISNEYLAND.  I secretly want my husband to be an imagineer just so we can go to Disneyland whenever we want.  When I talk about things I would buy if I were rich- an annual pass to Disneyland is probably in the top 2.  I would dress up like a princess just to get into Disneyland.  I would do just about anything just to go to Disneyland.  Lick a toilet bowl, wax a tiger, run until I passed out, walk on hot coals, kiss a fish, run outside in my underwear, eat a mouse, watch a medical show without closing my eyes, sneeze with out closing my eyes... all of these are things I would do just to go to Disneyland.  ANYWAY, all in all it was a really really fun trip and Henry enjoyed it too. 
We got there at 12:30 at night.  He naturally woke up when we got him out of the car.  And he naturally ate a birthday cup cake at the same time.

 He loves talking on the phone!  Great Grandma and Grandpa Rogers called him :)
 Some of my family came and MT's sister came too.  It was nice with such a big group because while some people went on rides with Henry, others got to go on the "big people" rides.

 Peter Pan was Henry's first ride a Disneyland.  It got pretty dark at some points and he started to whimper... but liked the rest of it a lot :)

 I'm one!!!!!!

Another cupcake before bed of course!

I want to go back.  It was so great.  I think I'll have another kid soon just so I can go back again.  This is a first birthday tradition right Grammy?!? :)

PS. That wasn't an announcement.  I'm not pregnant.
