Where did May go?

I missed the month of May. There was way to much happening this month. We had Cordin's 10th birthday on May 1st and Gabbie's 8th birthday on the 2nd. We then proceeded to have Cordin's friend party on the 8th which turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. It was the first year in a long time that we let the kids have their own parties and didn't combine them. Gabbie's party was a slumber party on the 14th and 15th. The boys also had the father, sons camp out that same night so it was all girls here for he party. It was a lot of fun.

The 18th was Joe's and my 11th wedding anniversary. We had planned to go out on a date but weren't able to because of some stuff. We ended up going out on Saturday instead. It was nice to just spend alone time with Joe, it doesn't happen all that often. We went and saw Ironman 2. I thought it was really good. It was fun to just sit and hold hands with Joe.

On May 23rd Gabbie was baptised. Most of my siblings were able to come and lots of Gabbie's little friends from church were there. It was such a special day for her. Joe baptised and confirmed her. Bryan gave a beautiful talk on baptism and Ben gave an equally wonderful talk on the gift of the Holy Ghost, Gabbie picked the program. Breanne sang for us while playing her guitar. It was a really neat day all around. We then had everyone that wanted to come over for dinner. I am so proud of Gabbie. She is growing up way to fast for me. She is such a sweetheart and has a very tender soul. I love her and am so happy with the choice she made to be baptised.

On the 27th it was my birthday. It was pretty low key. We went to dinner as a family at the new Mongolian BBQ that just opened here. It was really good. There was lots of yummy food. The kids even behaved themselves, which was kind of shocking. Like I said May was a crazy month for us. I liked it though. It was nice to have lots of things to keep us busy and things to look forward too. Now we get to look forward to our Utah trip to see Joe's family. It should be lots of fun.
