I can't believe my son is now 10 years old. I was so happy when he was born; I finally became a mother! He has been a joy from the beginning and a blessing to our family. I have enjoyed watching him learn and grow; challenging himself to new things. Jonathon excels at Math. He is good at statistics and likes to analyze outcomes. When he makes a statement about something, it is often followed with the question, "Do you want to know why?" He loves to play basketball, video/wii (Minecraft, Super Mario, Dragon City) games. He also likes to ride his bike, read, and play the piano.
Looking forward to seeing him progress through the years.
He is now in the Webelos Den in Cub Scouts.
His birthday, is the perfect time to get all the required items; book, neckerchief/slide, belt/buckle, and ribbons.
Scouting is a lot of work. I really have to stay on top of it to help him complete the requirements.
He also got a new baseball mitt and some Pokemon cards.
"Happy Birthday Dear Jonathon, Happy Birthday To You!" . . now make a wish and blow . .
The holidays snuck up on me very quickly this year.
I felt like I was scrambling to get everything done. It was another great time to remember!!
Here they are all ready for church; wearing their special Christmas clothes on this beautiful Sunday.
This year was easy; no dress to make, just a simple, yet beautiful skirt I made for Alyvia.
I found a matching tie for Jonathon to wear. I even made a festive skirt for me to wear too.
say "cheese" - love their silly smiles
checking out the ornaments
I think we look amazing on this wonderful Sabbath Day.
On Christmas Eve they each get to open a gift from Dad.
They got a Nauvoo Temple ornament; very significant this year, since we visited there in May.
And of course, new pajamas. "I love my Star Wars and Penguin PJs!"
Santa brought them new bikes, it was just what they needed.
I can't wait to play these games. Look at our cool shirts.
