Tyler Turns Eight

My handsome dude turned eight last month.  I can't even believe he is that old already.  I have been going through baby pictures lately looking for some good ones for a photo wall at my house.  I can't believe the time has gone by so fast.  

                              This is Tyler's last day as a 7 year old!

Tyler got baptized on December 7th in Gatesville Texas.  It was really bad weather and it took us 5 hours to drive to Copperas Cove where we were saying the night at a hotel the night before.  The roads were completely ice.  I took some pictures will my cell phone that I'll try and get posted later.  But it was crazy.  My poor parents had driven here from Utah and then had to make that awful drive too because our car isn't big enough for all of us.  The baptism was nice though.  Tyler got dunked twice because his knee came up the first time.  :-)  We had cookies afterwards and the cousin had fun playing together.  Then we went to El Tapatio ( our favorite ) and the kids ate at their own table.  They had so much fun.  It was hard to tell them we had to go but we knew it was going to take forever to get home again.  This time it took even a little longer.  It was awful.  Here are some pictures from the baptism.

Amandalyn came for the baptism by herself with her two boys and was ready to pop!  She went to the hospital the very next day to have her baby!

I downloaded the pictures from my phone so here they are.

Here is outside of our house right before we left to start driving.  See that white stuff….looks like snow doesn't it.  NOPE!

This was us driving.  This was solid ice even thought it looks like soft fluffy snow.  It was horrible to drive on and very crazy! 

Tyler and Kayla bright and early at the hotel the morning of the baptism.  They were up before 7!  Little stinker's

Here are the crazy cute cousins sitting at their own table for lunch!  They were pretty darn good too!

  And then we got back on the road to head home.  Roads were slightly melted.

unfortunately we got stuck behind a semi who thought it necessary to go between 15 MPH and 30 MPH for about 2 hours.  It was HORRIBLE!  It ended up taking us slightly longer to drive the second day and we were actually closer to Abliene then we where the day before.  Booooooo Glad it is over with.

Wish we could have been there, but during the school year there was just no way. Glad everyone made it safe with all that ice.
