Happy Birthday Girls!! (Family Party) Gracelyn 5, Abigail 3

 The Birthday Cake.... When we went to pick out the cake of course we could not agree on the cake theme... Abigail wanted Tinkerbell and Gracelyn wanted Princesses!  The bakery at Smiths gave the idea to do the Princesses and then add Tinkerbell to the Princesses!.  It worked out and everyone was happy:)
This is my Gracelyn... She is such a fish. 

Gracelyn can sure catch some air off the diving board!

Abigail was fearful of the board until her Birthday Party!  Once she started she could not stop!

Little Max even LOVED being in the water!

Pinata Fun!

More Pinata Fun!

 Singing  and  Birthday Candle Blowing!

Gracelyn's main gift from her parents was a Dell netbook computer!  It is pink with all pink accessories... Including a backpack, mouse and headphones!
Abigail's main gift from her parents was a basketball hoop and Little pink and purple basketball.  Abigail has always LOVED balls!!!  From this picture she already has great form at 3 years old!

Abigail turns 3:)

 On the morning of Abigail's Birthday we woke her and her sister up by singing "Happy Birthday" .... We surprised her with balloons... and a few little gifts.  Abigail is really into Cars... So her balloon was of Lightening McQueen and Mater from the movies  CARS.   Abigail also received  a Minnie mouse, and 101 Dalmatian figurine set.  Then a Lightening McQueen car that when you shake it ... it will speed away...  The more you shake the further it goes:)

 Later that morning we went out to IHOP for breakfast as a family:)
Happy Birthday Baby Girl:)  We love you!

Fireworks at night!

 The night of fireworks.... we went to West Point Fireworks display.  The kids (old and young) had fun with "glow sticks".!!!  The kids made head pieces and and placed glow sticks around their ankles wrists etc. ...  They ran all over the field and looked like little martians running all over the place. Very cute.. Those glow sticks were  a huge hit that night!

Independence Day 2011

The 4th is a day to celebrate.... But we should be proud of our country and our freedom EVERYDAY! The Flag should be a reminder of what men and woman have for us to have!   Thank you to all of our service Men and Women!

The 4th is also a special day for our family.  Bill was born on July 4th, 1976.  The Bicentennial year of our Independence. 

Daddy getting Birthday Kisses from his girls:)

We had a great day of Family, Food, and Fireworks... Hope everyone had a great day and a safe, fun  Holiday Celebration!

Friday Nights & Family

 For Almost 1 year straight... The Mott's have all gotten together EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT!   We have only missed a handful of fridays:) 
We get together to have dinner (since we all need to have dinner anyway) and then we just hang out, visit, laugh, have technology learning classes or even watch movies. 

Our dinners are fun.... We have had easy nights of Take and Bake Pizza to gourmet meals of Prime Rib.... 

This weekend, the Friday before the Fourth of July we had a fun evening of Pizza and then.....

This year Utah allowed the aerial fireworks up to 150 ft. 

So this year we invested in some ground fireworks.. and one aerial called the machine gun.  The biggest hit  for the older kids was getting to "lite" the fireworks.  ( We have a bunch of pyro's in the family:)  For the little kids they Loved the "glow sticks" and the "pop rocks" the most.  What another great night being with family... Since that what life is all about:)
