She Did It!

Kaitlyn is one happy girl!
The big day finally arrived...

High School Graduation

Class of 2015

Shaking hands with the principal - could that smile be any bigger.

After she got her diploma she walked over and shook hands with Mr. Ting - her orchestra teacher for the last 7 years (middle school and high school).  We will really miss her orchestra concerts - they were always great!

Deer Valley just had the track redone in the stadium so nobody was allowed to walk on the track or stay inside the stadium for pictures.  So we have lovely pictures afterwards that are too dark and a parking lot for our background.

Grandma Jackie with Kaitlyn.

with Grandma and Grandpa Gwilliam

Uncle Scott came to help celebrate too!

Kaitlyn will think I have too many pictures on this post,
but it was a big day and we are all so excited for her.
Congratulations Kaitlyn!
on to grad night to party the night away

Mormon Prom

Kaitlyn couldn't find an outfit she liked this year so we decided to make one.
We made a black tulle skirt.
As usual it turned out to be more work than we thought it would be, but it turned out pretty well.


We had a group from the ward over for dinner before the dance.


After dinner we had a photo shoot in the backyard.

Started the celebrating Saturday night with dyeing our Easter eggs.
(btw - Logan wasn't in the mood to have his picture taken tonight)


Kaitlyn went with an emoji theme for her Easter eggs this year.

  Easter morning treats from the Easter bunny.

I was so happy to have a few bushes and trees to have
an outdoor Easter egg hunt this year.  Want a lot more
bushes and trees, but atleast it was better than nothing.

Goodbye Shelly

This cute picture was taken in 2003 when we got our new pet tortoises - Tomy and Shelly.

Who knew those cute little things would last so long and eat so much of our backyard.
No, Shelly did not die, but we decided it was time to get rid of atleast one of our pet turtles.
Before the new owners came to pick it up I had to recreate the picture of Kaitlyn and Logan with their pets.  All four of them have grown and changed a ton in the last 12 years.
