S: Topher & Callie Wilson Family ~ January through May 2011

FC: Wilson Family January through May 2011 | It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away.

1: CHUMPY BROWN our oh-so awesome guinea pig | We've had Chumpy for almost a year now and the kids still like to play with him in the laundry room. Addi loves to hold him while she feeds him hay. Aeryon likes to cover him with laundry and play hide and seek. Silly kids! Chumpy's pretty cute too; he makes a high squeaky noise when he's hungry or happy to see us. | January 2011

2: Our friends, Cindel Vasquez and Saralyn McDonold, came from Pocatello, ID to visit us. We went sledding on the Sugar Hill. We all had so much fun! It wasn't long before little Addi was cold, so I took her to the car to warm up, while Cindel stayed with the kids and partied the afternoon away. | JANUARY 5, 2011

4: Cozy Winter Wishes | Cindel is so great with the kids. We all had so much fun together. | Cindel Vasquez, Sara McDonold, Callie, Aeryon and Addi Wilson 01.05.11

5: Winter Memories

7: For Christmas our neighbors gave us a three day stay in a presidential suit in West Yellowstone. It was beautiful and it had three bedrooms three bath, large kitchen and living room, a swimming pool and three balconies overlooking the amazing national forest. | It was the perfect little get-away for our family. The kids had so much fun in the pools and hot tub, we got to see wolves and bears, and just cuddle up and enjoy each other's company. January 11-13, 2011 | West Yellowstone


9: We took the kids to see Yellowstone's wolves and Grizzly bears. This was one of my favorite parts. I was able to photograph these beautiful animals up close. A huge snow blizzard forced us back to our hotel, where we warmed up with some pizza, a dip in the hot pools and then a movie by the fire. January 12, 2011

10: Thank you Mike and Biya Wood, for the amazingly fun and relaxing vacation.

11: Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center West Yellowstone, Montana

13: Pool time is our favorite time. We spent most of this trip just relaxing in our beautiful room and playing in the many pools. We swam in the lap pool, shallow kids pool and two hot tubs. The kids enjoyed every minute splashing around and playing with their floaty toys. The kids room also had a large jetted tub, which they loved.

14: SNOWMAN | Building A

15: JANUARY 2011 | The kids and I built our first snowman of the winter. Turned out pretty cute, with his wafer eyes and buttons, raisin mouth and carrot nose. Aeryon wanted to just play in the snow, so Addi and I built most of it together and afterwards, brother had a new friend.

16: SWINGIN' FUN | Aeryon and Addi started a five month tumbling class in January, at Madison Gymnastics. This was Addi's first class and she loved everything about it: warm ups, rings, circle time, trampoline walk, bars and most of all... THE PIT!

17: at Gymnastics | Addi worked very hard and I'm so proud of her. She learned how to do a somersault, balance beam, basic gymnastic poses and she met a lot of new friends. January 2011

18: Aeryon and Addi had separate gymnastic classes, but every once in a while, they would get to be together and I loved watching them interact. I'm so proud of them, learning and working hard. It's been fun watching their confidence levels grow. Look at you go, Aeryon!

23: The Story of our life... live, laugh, love. | LOVE YOU ALWAYS | January 2011 Topher, Callie, Aeryon (4) & Addi (1)

24: California | Vacation | Topher and his brother, Kevin, took a five day road trip to California. They drove through Las Vegas, LA, stayed in San Luis, and then drove up the coast to San Fransisco. They ended their trip with a quick stay in Evanstan, Wy and then home. Topher and I don't spend a lot of time far apart, so this was really hard for me, but I'm so glad her had a blast exploring the ocean side.

25: January 19-23, 2011 | Pismo Beach, CA area

27: This was Kevin's first time to California, so Topher had to show him all of the sites and amazing views. Southern California Coast

28: While driving up the coast, Topher and Kevin found Sea Lions swimming in the ocean and basking in the sun on the docks. I was able to watch the video they took of them, and it was so fun. I've never seen sea lions in the wild before. Lucky guys! Along the coast of San Simeon, CA.

30: Beautiful West Coast

31: California Road Trip January 2011

33: While exploring the rocky coastline, Topher was climbing a rock wall, when a huge wave hit him, crashing him up against the rocks and then nearly pulling him back into the ocean. Luckily only my camera was damaged and not my hubby. Fishing docks, San Simeon coast and Pismo Beach.

34: Kevin & Topher ~ 2011 California Coast Road Trip

35: "A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes last forever." | BEST BUDS | Addi and Aeryon, February 2011

36: A hug a day keeps the smiles today. | Thomas the Cake Engine

37: Hanging with the kiddos | Aeryon got the fun idea, to ,make a Thomas the Tank Engine cake. from one of his Thomas movies. Topher baked the cakes and cut all of the shapes. Then Aeryon and I mixed all the fun colors and fronted our Thomas. This was such a fun family project and the kids loved it. February 2011

38: A baby is something you carry inside | you for nine months, in your arms | for many years and in your heart till | the day you die." ~ Mary Mason | Princess Peanut "Are you my Princess or my Peanut?" "Peanut!" | Addi, 23 months old

40: Happy Valentine's Day! | I really enjoyed preparing Valentine's Day for the kids this year. They were so excited for the big day. When they woke up, there were a few gifts and cards from Mom and Dad, sitting on the table. It was cute to see how excited they were about their little gifts and the cards printed out for them. Happy Valentine's my sweet babies! ~Feb. 14, 2011 | Addi received a box of chocolates and big teddy she was so happy to get. She kept hugging and kissing him. Too cute! | Aeryon received a sand aquatic tank and a Valentine's bubble gum ball machine. I printed special Dinosaur Train and Dora cards for them too. Which they just loved.

42: wonderland | Dashing Through the Snow

43: Rexburg Snow Days | We took the kids to Rexburg's Snow Days. It was such a fun way to spend the afternoon together as a family. We painted masterpieces in the snow, went for a two horse open sleigh ride, played snow bowling, went sledding down the hills and finished off the day with a cup of hot coco.

51: {NOTHING IS SWEETER THAN YOUR BABIES' FACES ALL COVERED IN CHOCOLATE} | Just another day in the kitchen, baking a cake and covering our faces with sweet chocolate. February 2011

52: LOOSE TOOTH | Aeryon's first | Aeryon had a loose tooth for weeks. I was so excited for him! He thought it was the coolest thing and he showed everyone and wiggled it all the time. When it was barely hanging on, we tried to convince him to pull it out, but when he tried it hurt, so he just left it. We would tell him to eat apples, and he would use his back teeth to bite them, but we figured it would come out on it's own. Finally, it got to the point where he quit eating because it would hurt. Topher and I didn't have the heart to hurt him (especially on his first loose tooth), so we took him to his favorite dentist, Dr. Mauseth, and with a little tug...vuala, he had a his first 'window'. Aeryon said that it didn't even hurt and to celebrate, we had Dairy Queen afterwards. He's very proud of his window.

53: March 7, 2011

54: "Look Mom, I have a window!"

55: {Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart} Aeryon's grocery list ~ Topher's sweet note shown below | Notes of Love: | March 2011

58: is in the air... | This spring was filled with fun... we planted our first garden, I got to go see my old high school friend, Blake Hoopes and his partner, the kids and I went on a summer shopping trip and Aeryon got his first four-wheeler. What a perfect way to start off the year. March 2011

102: This year we had so much fun with the kids on Easter. The night before, they each got to paint three dozen eggs each. Addi was old enough to really enjoy painting eggs and finding them. On Easter day,, the kids had an indoor and outdoor egg hunt. We hid real eggs and some plastic ones filled with candy. Dad made a treasure hunt with clues for the kids to find their baskets. They started at the front gate, went to the big willow tree and found their baskets on the front porch..

103: Happy Easter | Aeryon and Addi were so excited to find their baskets. They were filled with toys, candy and books. Aeryon loved finding the eggs so much, that we had to hind them several times for him and then Grandma Littell had an Easter egg hunt for them again when she cam to visit. We also took the kids to the community egg hunt at the park, where they got lots of fun treats. I've always loved Easter and painting eggs, but Holidays are so much more fun when you have children, who are just as excited as me. April 23-24,2011

104: Clue one | Easter 2011

105: Clue two | We found the prize

106: Let's Ride! | Addi begged to drive it all by herself and we gave in. Her first ride, she just pushed on the gas, but didn't try to steer, so she kept going around in circles, which was perfect. We got it on video and it's simply adorable. The second time she rode, she was going straight and did a sudden sharp turn and rolled it on top of her. Left us all terrified. The headlight broke off, but she was fine.

107: The kids just love to ride in our neighbor's field. With each ride, Aeryon gained more confidence and soon was trying to go over jumps. It didn't take long before he rolled his 4wheeler and cracked the fender. After a few tears, he got right back on it with caution. | April 2011

The giraffes and elephants were some of my favorites. | Mother's Day at the Salt Lake Zoo

Topher and his brother, Kevin, took a week long road trip from Rexburg, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, to San Fransisco and home. In February, Aeryon began taking piano lessons. He worked hard and was able to pass of his first two books before he decided to wanted to take a break. March was full of celebrations! Aeryon lost his very first tooth. It had been loose for about two months and we tried everything to make it come out, but he was a little scared, so we just left it. It wasn't until he stopped eating, that we decided it was time to take him to the dentist and have him pull it out. He did so well and we celebrated with ice cream afterwards! Topher and I celebrated our seven year anniversary. Miss Addi turned two! She had a big party with all of her friends and neighbors at Fat Cats bowling center. She was given mountains of gifts and was able to top it all off with two cakes, a Diego one for her friends and a Dora and Boots cake, just for herself.

Through complete chaos, we managed to pull off a surprise 50th birthday party for Doug. Sharee was pregnant and due any day; Linda's mom, Ruth, was very ill and was expected to pass away. Through it all, we were able to get the Littell family with a bunch of his friends together for a party. Three days later, Ruth left this world. In May, we went to Utah for Mother's Day, the Zoo, to visit family, and for a Day out With Thomas. Aeryon finished preschool and had a party to show for it.
