Hayden's kindergarten Graduation

May 31, 2012 was Hayden's last day of Kindergarten! I seriously cant believe how fast this school year went! I cant believe my baby will be in first grade! Hayden I am so so proud of you.  At the begining of the year at your kindergarten testing your teacher gave me a list of things you should learn this year and I was so stressed! But, I cant believe how smart you are.  You are reading on a second grade level, you read EVERYTHING! You can write full sentences, sound words out and so much more.  I will miss you so much when you go to first grade but, you are so ready for it. 
Your cute class did a fun year end program and I cried my eyes out.  You sang your favorite song from Kindergarten... Witch's Brew! I sobbed.
Hayden, We are so proud of you! We love you more than you'll ever know.
Thanks, for being such a great example to your little brother and sister.

P.S It was pajama day... That's why he is wearing jammie pants!

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day this year was a blast! We normally spend the weekend with the family down in Vegas or Primm.  But, this year we decided that since the children definatly out number the adults maybe we should try a more kid friendly environment. Park City! We stayed in an awesome condo at the Canyons. (way to go Jon!) It had four bedrooms, huge living room and even a hot tub on the balcony! The kids were in heaven.  We had a difficult time getting the kids to leave the room! We went to dinner, guys went golfing, girls shopping, went to the crater in Midway, went to the train station for lunch (of course) and ended the weekend with a trip down the Alpine slide.  It is always so fun to be together.  This year was even better cause there was a lot more time to just hang out.  The kids loves being together with the cousins, and I love being with my family! So fun!

Just hangin out after dinner... The kids decided to have a dance party!

The "Train Station"

The Alpine slide. 
The boys were so so brave!

9 Blissful Years

On May 16th we had our 9 year anniversary! Say what? Am I seriously even that old? We spent our anniversary weekend (the 16th was on a wed) on a "staycation".  Jon had his parents take the kiddos and we headed to the temple to do a session. Awesome... I'm always amazed at the salt lake temple.  And, am so so grateful I married my BFF and sweetheart there,  After, we headed over to city creek and went to the cheesecake factory and did some shopping.  I love you Jon! I love we have been married for 9 years and I still get giddy being able to have alone time with you.  I love how you still give me the butterflies, how you make me laugh (everyday), how you put up with me and never act annoyed even though im sure you are.  I love you are the daddy to my children, I love that I get to go to bed with you everynight... The list goes on and on.  But, most of all I LOVE knowing I can be your sweetheart for eternity! Happy Anniversary babe!

Anna's Graduation

My cute sis in law Anna graduated with her Bachelor's degree in graphic design.  We took the whole family to the graduation.  The kids did surprisingly well, thanks to treats, phones and ipods. We are so proud of her! Congratulations Anna! We love you!


My little Noah...
Noah has become quite the funny guy lately.  He seriuosly cracks me up. 
 I am not even sure how to be a mother to him... because I just laugh.
I have to share some of the things he does.

Noah has been potty training for about 6 long months and I think he finally got it... However, the other day we were in the car and he said "mommy I smell pee" and he just kept repeating this. When we finally got to Target and got him out of the car he had peed his pants.

We took Hayden to taco bell around his birthday because he Loves the cinnamon twists they have. I told the boys that they couldnt have them until they ate thier tacos.  Hayden picked out a long very cinnamon one and told me to save it while he ate.  I continued eating my lunch when all the sudden noah slowly without me knowing snatched the one Hayden had called and ate it. As if that wasnt bad enough... He than had to tease Hayden by saying... Ha, Ha I got the very cinnamon one.
Hayden Cried!

We dont have a fence in our backyard yet, and it has been so nice lately.  The boys beg me to go out in the backyard all the time.  One night we had just finished eating dinner and me and Jon were still sitting at the table and the boys begged us to go outside.  We said sure, but of course gave them the lecture about not going in the street.  I waited a few minutes and peeked out the window to check on them.  What I saw?? Noah with one foot on the grass, one foot on the street.  Just waiting for me to notice. STINKER!

The other day we went to Chick-fil-a.  We had just finished and I told Noah to go and throw his drink away while I got sissy in her seat.  When I was near the door to leave, I couldnt find Noah.  After looking all around I spotted him up at the cash register.  He just went up by himself and asked the worker for a refill... I said "noah I told you to throw your drink away" he looks at me and says... But, my tummy was thirsty.  Sometimes I wonder if he understands that I am in charge and not him.

One last Noahism...
Noah LOVES doing the laundry with me.  In fact he gets mad at me if I start the washer without him knowing.  yes, he even cries.  He Loves to watch the washer.  I lift him up and let him sit on the rim of the washer and he will seriously just watch it.  Weird? YES! But, it keeps him in one spot for at least 10 minutes.

I Love you Noah! You seriouly are so funny! You can be such a stinker, but you totally know how to work me... I can get so mad and you know it.  So, you look up at me and say...
"Mommy, your the best mommy in the whole wide world"
How can I stay mad at that?

Oh, and he also Loves to blow dry his hair?? One, day jon was getting Noah out of the tub and I walked in and found this...

family Pictures

I won a session for family pictures from an awesome girl from our old ward (yay! I never win anything).  So, this is what I got... I am thrilled because Noah was a treat (dripping with sarcasm)... Stella, was crying because of the wind. Hayden was just a model (right in his element).  I just Hate, Hate, Hate getting family pictures done. They totally stress me out.  But, I like them and am so excited to have updated pictures to hang on my wall. Yay!

Hayden- 6 Years old
Noah- 3 Years old
Stella- 6 months old

6 Years Old

We have a 6 year old! Our little Hayden turned 6 on April 19th! I cant believe how fast time flies! We love you so much Hayden! We have loved having you as our son.  Your so sweet and considerate and such a great older brother.  We started out the morning with the "birthday trap" and his favorite breakfast...Cinnamon rolls and chocolate milk. This year was extra fun cause we got to spend the day at the zoo with his class on a field trip.  I loved being able to spend some one on one time with him at the zoo. After that we went to eat at the spaghetti factory (his favorite).  He just couldnt wait for daddy to come home so he could open his gifts.  It was such a fun day and he was so Excited!
Happy Birthday Little Buddy!

On Sunday we had a PaRtY at our house.  He wanted to have an angry birds party.  Luckily I have a very talented friends that are crafty! My friend Brandi made an Angry Birds game for her kids and let me borrow it.  I am not sure if the kids or the adults had more fun.  Hayden insisted on having cake balls that I showed him on pintrest (what was I thinking).  I am so not domestic but, luckily my sister in law came to the rescue and helped me make them. It was a great day!

The boys loved coloring Easter Eggs this year! I think this is like the first year they were actually colors and not all brown from abuse! Noah was a natural and Hayden took his sweet time planning out each egg and what color he was going to do.  Stella was a great sport cheering from the sideline... and letting me take her picture!I Love Easter!

                                                                       Easter Morning
Noah was so excited to find all of his eggs! He would squeal after each one he found.
They loved the big bouncy balls the Easter Bunny left them. They seriously ate candy all day long!

Our attempt to get decent pictures of us on in our Easter best! Like I said I tried... They do look sweet though dont they?

We finished up the day with the annual Egg Hunt at grandma Debbie's... Hayden was so nervous all day because he really wanted to find the golden egg with $10 inside, and guess what?? He DID! Two years in a row! Oh yeah! Noah just loved being outside and eating candy all day! I made Stella stay in her big puffy dress! I know I'm such a meanie!

Herriman Easter Egg Hunt

We went to the Herriman City Easter egg hunt.  Which was really just like a giant free for all.  But, the boys loved it.  There were tons of people but, it was still a hit.  Noah loved getting cotton candy and popcorn.  Hayden was a little jealous cause Noah got more than him... All in all it was a great morning.  Thanks sis for joining us in the madness!

But, we also spent alot of time shopping. Stella was so so good. She loved being in her big girl stroller. She was such a great little traveler. On the way down to Vegas my mom made a comment... She said "oh all of us are with our girls"... Tear! I loved going on my first of hopefully many girl trips with my very own daughter. I love you Stella! I love my momma and my sissys' too! Great time!

3 Months old!

Where does time go? I cant believe it's already been 3 months! We love this little lady. She is so smiley and happy. She LOVES her Daddy, the minute he walks in the room, talks to her or even holds her she is smiley, giggling or babbling to him. It has been so sweet to watch their relationship. The boys adore her and mommy loves all the fun clothes, boots and headbands.
Her first big girl bath. Yes, I know... I have been bathing her in the sink!
Her first time in her bumbo... She is still not really sturdy with her head.
I think we might have to wait a little while for this one.
My Smiley lil gal! Wow, her feet look really big in this picture!

Principal's Pride

On January 12, 2012 Hayden was awarded the the "Principal's Pride Award". I am new at this Elementary School thing but, I guess each month the teacher's pick someone in the class that is setting a good example to the other students, and Hayden got chosen this month. He was so cute and a little nervous to have to stand in front of the whole school. He looked so small compared to the other kids. I am so proud of him, and all he has been learning in Kindergarten. We love you Hayden! Keep up the good work!

Bear River Lodge

The first weekend in Jauary my Dad(Kenny) took us to the Bear River Lodge for some snowmobiling. We stayed in an amazing 5 bedroom cabin. The kids love playing, sledding, hot tubing and watching movies together. The adults had a blast watching football, playing games, eating and of course snowmobiling. It was our second year going and we sure hope it is a yearly tradition. It is so fun being with my brothers and sisters and jsut relaxing. The highlight of the weekend? Bronson giving Noah his old Game Boy and Uncle Clayton giving Hayden his old Ninetendo DS. We are so lucky to have such a great family!
