Catching Up

I'm a little behind on everything in my life right now...mostly for very fun reasons, I went to Hawaii for a week, I got sick the day after I got home for a several days then the kids finished school, we had some fun company over two weekends, Sam had a guys night here, other friends over and outings with the kids and we had family in town and much more, so I have a lot to post once I get everything back to normal and in the meantime, don't give up on me, I'll be back to posting soon!

Derby #3

I was really proud of the boys this year. They chose the cut for their cars, sanded and painted all on their own. All Sam did was help with the wheels. I think it made them feel that much better about winning first and fourth place, Brady did not lose a single race and Jordan only lost in the finals.

The little kids were good at watching for a while, and then had fun running around the gym, not quite as fun for me!
and Sam got to be a judge!

I took Eden and Tucker down to MH last week for a birthday party but the best part was getting to see all of my friends and especially to spend the day with Danelle. It's hard to go back and visit sometimes after you have moved away because it's changed but I always feel at home with a few of the friends there and especially at the Foberts and I wish they could come and live by me here!!!

Being the youngest of 5.....

Poor kid, being the youngest of 5 sure can wear you out! He has been falling asleep on (or partly off in this case) the couch a lot lately!

Pretty in Pink

On Easter we had General conference for church, which we watch at home, so Eden didn't actually get to wear her Easter dress that day and I forgot to take pictures the week before. So this is when she had it on again another Sunday but I wanted to remember the first Easter dress she picked out for herself. I tried to gear her to the more princess looking ones but she knew what she wanted. Luckily, in general she is not super concerned about her clothes and I could have easily swayed her if I wanted to, but it was fun to see what she would choose on her own!

Ready for church

I actually got out the camera to take pictures of Eden's hair but then I thought I might want to remember someday how I was able to get all the kids ready for church in time. We have really late church at 2:30 so it makes it easier, but I was so tired of having everybody ready for church only to realize that one kids wasn't wearing socks and one kid had a stain on their shirt so I made a new rule that they all had to be ready head to toe with scriptures and stuff to do already in hand an hour before we leave and then they can watch some cartoons I recorded off of BYUtv during that time. It works because they can't watch any tv the rest of the morning so they are excited for anything! So these are some typical scenes from our house before church!

and Tucker keeps falling asleep on the couch, the quick power nap makes him go crazy during sacrament meeting! I don't know which is worse, him being to tired or him being off the wall, but luckily he can't wait to get to class so he runs to nursery as soon as he can!
It's been a long time since I spent a lot of time doing fun stuff with Eden's hair like I used to so I just wanted to get a few pictures!
