Wesley's 1st day of School!!

I am definitely one of those moms that was beyond ready for my child to start school!!
I have waited soo long for this day to come, and now that it has it's exciting but also a
little nerve-wracking! What if he doesn't make friends right away? What if he's a bully
to the other kids? What if he doesn't listen to his teacher? What if he gets in trouble
the first day? What if he cries on the first day?! All of these thoughts were running through
my head as we walked up the the elementary school!! As we waited to go in through the
gate I made myself just tell him one thing... Have fun! He went and played for a few minutes and found that there were a couple of boys from his primary class in his K class! Then the
teacher came out and had them line up to go in!! He found me to waved goodbye! At least
half of the moms there were crying but surprisingly i didn't!! Even with my pregnancy
I got home and put Karissa down for a nap, and the silence filled me with a little bit
of sadness! I got a little teary eyed but for the most part I am greatful that i now have 2 and 1/2
hours to either nap or get some things done! Hooray!!
I love you Wes and hope that you love love love school!!

Wesley decided that this year he wanted a party
with a bunch of his friends!! So he invited 7!!
Fun for him, Crazy for me! We'll do it again (in 5 years)!!!

Waiting for his friends to show up!

Wes really wanted fish for his birthday!! S0 on his
birthday we let him them out!! The fish are in there!
5 of them! they're just really small!!
It was a Toy Story themed party!
Enjoying pizza!!
Opening his presents!!

His light up sketchers!
He loved all of the presents he got!! Thanks again
to all of his friends for coming and sharing in his
special day!!
Arabelle being silly!! She was one of the most
calm ones at the party!!
So once he put these shoes on he didn't
take them off until he went to bed that night!
Even to put his pjs on!! And then the next
morning put them right back on!!

His yummy birthday cake!! The frosting was such
a mess though and everyone had blue lips and teeth

Such a fun Birthday!!! We love you Wesley Dean!!!
I love your laughter and your craziness!!! You are such
a special boy!! You definitely keep us on our toes!! Don't

Happy Birthday!

My sweet Karissa was born a year ago April 1st!
Yes April Fools day! (i think we'll have fun with
that when she gets older) I can't believe how fast
this year has gone!!! We love her sooo much!!
She has such a fun and sweet personality and is
a very happy and content toddler!!! She definitely
has her mom and dad (mostly dad) wrapped
around her little finger!!!

Opening presents!! Grandma Buck sent Wesley
one too so he wouldn't feel left out!!!

Her first cupcake!!

She was pretty shy with it at first!

but it didn't last too long!

Trying to share!!

She loved her cupcakes!!!

We love Springtime!!!
We've been keeping busy here in the Buck home lately! Wes has been taking swimming lessons and LOVES it!! He's becoming quite the little swimmer! And it makes me feel a lot less nervous!! He also loves playing outside!! We're loving the nice weather lately, a great cure for our cabin fever! Karissa's 1st Birthday is coming up on April 1st! She is such a delight and the sweetest baby girl ever!! She's almost walking and her hair is getting really long but it's hard to tell cause it's soo crazy curly!! Aaron is working lots and going to school at UVU and is always busy! We're hopeful to hear from some schools soon about the nursing program he's applied to! They're very competitive and we're praying hard that he'll be accepted this fall! And I am busy trying to keep a happy home!

My camera died a few months back and it really bummed me out so even though I have a back up camera I haven't been very picture happy of late! So here are a couple pics of Ryssa that my sis-in-law took!! Thanks Jen! I love them!
