The Grand Ball

Last night Joe took Presli to the Grand Ball at the Castle in Layton. They got to mingle with the princesses, ride with Cinderella in her carriage and learn a dance from Flynn and Rapunzel. Joe said she loved every minute of it. I love this age....she thinks everything is real and they are her heroes!! She looked so pretty! I love this girl!!

My Baby Girl's 1st Day of Preschool

So, yesterday Presli started her first day of preschool. She has been to preschool for the past two years, but it has always been with my mom. Since moving to Bountiful it has been hard making the trip to North Ogden for school. This year we decided to try one here in Bountiful. I know its going to be really hard for me not to compare it to my moms, but hopefully it will be ok. Presli was a little shy when I took her in, but I know she will be fine. She is very outgoing and make friends very easily. When I picked her up she was all smiles and said it was "Way fun, Way fun!" Here are a few pictures before school started. (She is so funny when it comes to pictures. It was like we had our own little photo shoot. She loves the camera!!) Presli with her teacher Ms Heather

Knox J Rieck.........1Year Old!!!!

Knox J Rieck

Born: July 30th, 2010

Time: 1:00 P.M.

Weight: 7 pounds 4 Ounces

Length: 19 1/2 inches long Seriously? My baby is one year old? Wow how the past year has flown. Where do I even start with my little angel baby? Knox has been such a joy to have in our family. He has been my best baby by far. From the time he was born, he has never been much of a crier....and he's still not! He seems to always have a smile on his face....and a huge smile at that with his big mouth! When he smiles it's almost as if his eyes just sparkle! He is definitely never starving for attention...he is literally mawled to death all day by Presli. Even after a year she still seems to never get enough of him...and he absolutely loves her. He loves his big brother Madden too. No matter what Madden does, he always seemsto make Knox laugh! Here are just a few things to remember about Knox at 1 year old...

*Loves his taggie...which I don't always give him cause we don't need an attatchment to have to get rid of

*Still likes his binky

*Sleeps through the night and is such a great napper

*Never cries...well okay a tiny bit

*Loves to dance...anytime music is on you can guarantee Knox is bouncing

*Is off of a bottle and loves his sippy cups!

*LOVES to climb the stairs...he will look back to make sure we are watching and then he will laugh and crawl faster

*Says...mama, dada, nana, uh oh

*Shakes his head NO

*Will hold up his finger if you ask how old he is

*Loves cars, trucks and motorcycles...if he sees one he will start pushing it on the floor and makes a truck noise

*Kindof a daddy's boy...If Joe walks in from work and he doesn't acknowledge Knox first...Knox will scream at him

*Is a GREAT eater...he will eat anything and he LOVES fruit

*If you holler Hipperee...he will throw his hands in the air and yell!!

*He is our little snuggler!!!! I love it!


We couldn't even imagine our life without our little Knoxer! He is such a blessing to have in our family! We love you Knoxy!!!!!!

Face Painting???







Me and my mom went out and did a little shopping with all of the kids. They all fell asleep on the way home. We laid them all on the couch when we got home. Nate and Lacy came over and Nate thought it would be fun to paint their faces. So he took my eyeliner and painted their faces like kittens! As you can tell by the look on Korver's face he woke up in mid painting and looked a little frightened!!! When the boys woke up they just looked at each other and smiled! When Presli woke up she said, "I want my face painted like theirs!"

Swim Swim Swim

While we were in St. George the kids spent every waking moment in the pool. By the end of the weekend the boys were being pretty daring! Presli and Madden spent almost everyday with Korver and they loved every second of it!









Little Mermaid

Joe went on a guys golf trip to Arizona so me and the kids stayed in St. George while he was gone. Presli had been looking forward to seeing The Little Mermaid at Tuacahn for a whole year. So we went while we were down there. It was me, Pres, Madden, my mom, my nephew Korver, my niece Layla, and my mother and sister in law. The kids loved it! Presli thinks it's all so real, I love this age!
