Cam has been here the past week and Colee has had a blast with him! They play well together and wear each other out by the time naps come around. They have the best imaginations and are constantly giggling!

Summer is THE BEST!!!!!!!

Summer is so much fun! Especially sharing it with Colee. She has the wildest imagination and keeps me constantly entertained. I LOVE SUMMER!

Colee playing in her "rock ship" 

Spaghetti is fun to eat even when you are old, isn't it? 

 We made some delicious cinnamon-sugar pretzels! 

 This was Colee's bridge. She told me the "gumpy ole troll" lived underneath. Every time she would push her stroller across she would say, "oh no, gumpy troll." (Grumpy Old Troll is on Dora the Explorer and he lives under a bridge)

Seriously, summer is FUN!

2 Years Old

So Colee turned two on May 15 and here are a few things about our little munchkin...

-Weighs: 34 lbs.
-Height: 3'3"
-Eats anything she wants
-Can say anything (This morning when I was changing her diaper, she said, "Mom, you're awesome!")
-Calls herself Coco.
-Loves to sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, the "ABCD Song" (she sings this in a deep voice as loud as she can, so funny), Wheels on the Bus.
-Favorite story is Goldilocks and the Three Bears. She will quote different parts to me, for instance "Baby bear chair broke. Oh no, mom! It okay, I fix it." Funny little girl.
-Sleeps like a rock and will tell me to go away if I try and wake her up.
-Loves to watch Dora the Explorer.
-Will run over to grandpa and grandma's house if I'm not watching her.
-Loves nursery! She has never hated it or cried. Thank goodness.
-Loves root beer twin pops.
-Is totally a daddy's girl.
-Likes to play in the dirt outside, but she usually takes her purse with her and fills it up with rocks and dirt.

Memorial Day 2011

Forrest, Farley, Colee and I went to the cabin on Memorial Day this year. The day was perfect! We relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. The best part was that we didn't have any schedule to follow. We just loaded the wheelers and spent the day doing whatever. I love days like this!

Skyler and Ruth's Wedding

I took very few pictures of Skyler and Ruth's wedding. I feel really bad! But I do know that Hil took some and I plan on stealing some from her. We are so thankful to have Ruth in our family! She is wonderful.

And this is after eating an icecream cone. Just thought I'd throw this in here.

2 Years Old

On May 15th Colee turned two! My parents came down and celebrated and then Colee had another party when Farley and his parents came home from St. George. Colee had a blast and still asks if it is her birthday so she can have more parties!

Horned Toads, Turkey, Halloween Costume, Gum Drops

Grandpa Forrest caught a horned toad and Colee loved it. 

Farley shot his turkey on May 11 and Colee wasn't sure what to think of it. We cut it up in bite-size chunks and fried it. It was actually pretty good!

Colee found her Halloween costume in the closet and came out wearing it. She had seriously put the whole thing on by herself. After playing in it for over an hour she put it pack in the closet. 

All I can say is I am glad this was a gumdrop and not gum. After a nice hot bath, the gumdrop was totally dissolved. 

Meeting Baby Dutton

My older sister, Lisa, had a baby boy and Colee was able to meet him on April 28. His name is Dutton Brady Daybell and he is a cutey! Colee now calls all of her baby dolls Baby Dutton. She will tell me, "Shhh mom. Baby Dutton sleeping."

Easter 2011

Easter this year was spent up at the cabin. Colee and Cam had fun painting eggs and then looking for all the goodies! They play pretty well together and Colee looks for Cam every time we go up to the cabin now.

Comb Ridge

In April, Forrest, Jason, Farley, Colee and I went riding up to Comb Ridge. Colee road with grandpa and loved every minute of it. She picked up rocks, climbed mountains, chased lizards and her and grandpa checked everything out together. We had a blast!!!
And Colee was exhausted! As soon as I put her in the truck, she fell asleep.
