Spelling Bee

They had a 3rd grade spelling bee this year. The kids were able to study the list of spelling words for a month. Then they had spelling bees with their class to narrow it down to the top 4 from each class to compete in the grade level spelling bee. After a few rounds of using the words they had studied and realizing nobody was going to miss one, the judges started using a list of words the kids had never seen before. Julia did a great job! She got some really hard words correct. It was funny to watch both of Julia's grandma's tense up with nerves while Julia spelled each word. The word she will never spell wrong ever again is purchase. She said c instead of s. She took 2nd place, which is great!

She was extremely excited about the cute bee trophy she received!

It was great to have Grandma and Grandpa Hult there along with Grandma Tuckett.

9 year old Julia Kaye

This year was Julia's year for a family birthday party instead of a friend party. She wanted to go swimming at the Lehi Legacy Center. We let her take two of her cousins along. I didn't get any pictures of them in the pool, but snapped this one before they all jumped in. The had a great time swimming....

but maybe had just as much fun playing in the lockers in the dressing room:)

For a cake Julia chose desert island cupcakes. The girls had a fun time making their own desert islands.

Aren't they cute! The cupcakes turned out pretty cute too!

Julia got the webkinz giraffe from Grandma and Grandpa Hult along with a sketch book and an activity book.

I got Julia this new outfit and asked her to go try it on so we could bring her new bike in from the garage and surprise her. She came strutting out in her new clothes and didn't even notice the bike:) Emma's expression was priceless, too bad it wasn't her birthday:)

Alas, we chose wrong again with the bike. This one was too big. She traded it for a cute hot pink one!

We put a few candles on each cupcake. I can't believe Julia is 9 already. She is growing so fast and each day she gets smarter, more talented, and more beautiful inside and out! I love the girl she is and the young lady she is becoming. She makes us proud to be her parents.

These kids can make even the $3 Walmart t-shirt look cute!

This is the awesome candybar poster I made for Eldon for Valentines. He was happy cuz he loves chocolate!

AJ - 9 months

Is this the happiest baby you've ever seen? I think he might just be MY happiest baby. He is such a good baby!

He sleeps good, eats good, is very content to sit and play with toys, has been mostly healthy, has the best smiles.....

he's a great clapper,

and has the cutest one-toothed grin.

These pictures were taken just after AJ turned 9 months old in January. This Monday he will be 11 months. I somehow got a few pictures uploaded, I have no idea how. I still can't get to his videos or other pics. Maybe someday someone, meaning my husband, will take compassion on me and my technological deficiencies:)
