HOLY COW!! I have not posted since Easter and needless to say many things have happened in the Phelps household. So here I am back blogging trying to get caught up. I've gotten through the end of May and in the next couple of days hopefully I'll bring this blog up to the present goes.

Alyssia graduated from North Sanpete High School on May 27th. Rick and I traveled to Mt. Pleasant for the ceremony. Wow, it was the BEST graduation we have ever been to. The speakers (five of them) were all students and they each spoke on an attribute that they had aquired through their years of high school. The talks were amazing and what was even more impressive was that they were ALL memorized. The choir sang a few numbers that were excellent and this graduating class seemed to be top notch kids. We really enjoyed being there. Congratulations Leesh, on your success. We love you!

Julie made this cake for Alyssia for her celebration. Isn't it sooo cute?


It's official! Gary has graduated A WHOLE YEAR EARLY from Grantsville High School. With dedication, hard work, and good teachers he was able to realize this goal that he set for himself at the beginning of his sophomore year. Good Job Gary and a BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!
We love you!

Fly like an EAGLE

On May 7th Gary recieved his Eagle Scout Award. He has worked very hard the past year to finish all of the requirements. He planned the Court of Honor and it turned out really nice. As the meeting was beginning Gary leaned over to me and said, "Is this a practice or is this real?" I laughed and said, "Yes, Gary this is real" He got this panicked look on his face and said, "I told everyone this was starting at 7 o'clock." I looked at the clock and saw that it was just a little after six. Well that explained why 2 of the people on the program weren't even there. Thankfully Gary's good scout leaders filled in for the missing speakers. Yes, the invitations DID say 6 PM. Anyway, that makes for a funny story. At least they got there in time for dinner:) Here's Gary giving his talk.

My mom and dad came from Las Vegas to be there for the Court of Honor. Grandpa Hafen presented Gary with a knife plaque that he made especially for Gary. Gary is the 13th grandson to recieve his Eagle.

We are very proud of Gary's great accomplishment. This was an important goal for him to reach and HE DID IT! Congratulations Gary!


At the end of April (I have gotten sooo behind in my posting:( ) we celebrated with Kaitlyn and Alyssia their 19th birthday. We had a little family get together here at home. I think this is such a cute picture of the two of them. They were so happy to be back together.

I made Kaitlyn a gummy bear cake at her request while Alyssia wanted an asphalt pie cake. Hopefully this will be agood year for both of them:)


On April 29th Rick and I and Trent and Kathy were able to got to the Yanni concert in Salt Lake. I wasn't that thrilled to be going but to tell you the truth I had a great time. Not only was Yanni awesome, his whole band was truly amaing. Very talented artists! A fun evening!
