Tayven's Blessing Day

Sunday, July 12th was Tayven's Baby Blessing. It was a fun but busy day. Here is a photo of Tayven with Hyrum and Amiee.
Tayven is really easy to coax to a smile. I got LOTS of really cute ones but this is one of my favorites. He was a happy baby all day and was given a beautiful blessing by his daddy.
Kerry spent much of him time on his back wrestling and playing with grandkids. Here is Courtney, Kyler, Kerry, and Aden looking at the clouds and finding shapes.
Kyla was so tired she could barely function - although she was her cute happy self most of the day. This photo is right before she fell sounds asleep in my arms.
Tayven Boyd Denney is the 6th generation of "Boyd" Here is Donald Boyd (great grandpa to Tayven) Kerry Boyd (Grandpa) Hyrum Boyd (Daddy) and Special little guy Tayven Boyd Denney. We are so blessed to have all four generations in the same town for now. Wonderful priesthood holders, fathers and husbands.

Another Quilt made by me with Love


While Kenne was on his mission, one of his best friends Matt Davis married Aubrey. So when Kenne got home from his mission we decided to make them a quilt. Her wedding colors were red, black and white and so this is a whack and stack I made for them. 6 months later they finally have it!

Grandkid fun

One afternoon Hyrum and Amiee came over with a new blow-up pool for Kyla. We had fun setting it up and then they decided to run for just a few minutes to the store. Grandma got to keep Tayven and Kyla for the first time and we had so much fun!
Nathan helped by playing photographer :)!
This is Kyla lounging in her new pool. It was pretty cold but we dumped buckets of warm water from the house :).
Heidi & Eric left Aden with us one evening for a short time and he was SO cute and fun we had to have a photo shoot.

Happy 4th of July!

This 4th of July was a wonderful time. We started off with the parade. Heidi, Eric & Aden watched with us. As well as G & G Denney (behind H & E).
Hyrum, Amiee, Kyla, and Tayven were also dressed out in their Red, White and Blue for this special celebration.
and Kenne went really early to get us all a good spot to see the parade. It was great fun catching candy, waving flags and drinking our traditional chocolate milk! Later that evening we all came to our house and shot off fireworks and listened to patriotic music. This video below isn't a very good picture of Kyla - but just take a listen and you will be amazed at how cute she is (at the age of 2 years) singing "You're a Grand Old Flag".

June 24th & 25th - Birthday's

June 24th was Kyrstina's 19th birthday. We celebrated her birthday with mine this year and Rizzo, Kyrstina's friend, did the cooking. It was delicious sweet and sour chicken. My 46th birthday was on June 25th and we had fun celebrating mine too. It was actually a wonderful birthday week for me - I went out to lunch everyday with friends and family and had lots of attention. On the day of my birthday, Kyrstina, Heidi & Aden, Amiee, Kyla & Tayven, and Kerry and I went to the splash park in Rexburg and played with the kids. It was great. Thanks everyone for such a wonderful birthday!
