After cleaning up breakfast we got all set up for decorating cookies!


Lucas got the special Utah cookie that Karl made, in honor of his place of birth.

There were lots so everyone had cookies to decorate.

While we were out, Malia the magnificent finished the cake!


All this eating made us sleepy, so we took naps.

Lucas happily fell asleep watching, what else? Cars.

I woke up to the sound of music, and off key singing.

It was time to eat, again, and babies had either missed naps, or had gotten to little nap.

Home made rice and beans, home made guac and salsa, and carne asada from the valley.

Everyone was SO generous this year. He got a set of Dinosaus and a big dino book from Grandma and Grandpa. He got a Mac truck from the Mississipi Hites. He got a talking Cruz from aunt Malia. He got books from Landy and Sean and we gave him a Hot Wheels track.
