All my cousins in one place

What a fun day. Shelby is turning 3 years old and she came to visit with us. It was so much fun to have all the kids together. Our house was a little crazy but what the heck.....
I love these kids!!

2013 catching up


Time continues to go quickly. Good thing we have cameras on our phone so that I can sort of keep up. Here are some of the highlights (so far) of this year.

Miss Evva turned 8. What a sweet girl she is. It's hard to believe that she is growing up. Yes, I do remember the day that she was born and the week following. (Umm that was only yesterday).  How blessed we are to have this girl in our lives. 

Jed's mom passed away in April. So hard to see her go.
I got a new table and chairs, now that was exciting :)

Of course girls camp was fun. Jed is always such a good sport. He is so amazing with everything that he does. He is such a hard worker and so humble.
So the girls have now ran 2 5K's. We did the Color me rad run which was a blast with all the fun colors
and then we ran in the 4th of July freedom run. I have been saying for years that I wanted to do one. Evva beat us all, she came in 2nd in her age group. I think Desi should have won for carrying her part of the way. I am way proud of the girls for even trying. 
Oh and how could I forget.....Jezzabel was gone for 3 months hanging with a male. We got her back in June and Tawnie was so excited to have her back. They played for a very long time. It was so cute.
We are hoping that she has a little girl goat so that we can give her to Craig. She will be having it here in August. Another fun post :)

Family Pictures



















Hadlee Flora

We are so blessed to have a healthy baby girl.
This was the very first picture taken of her right after she was born.
 


She is such a doll

I remember something about not showing Desi on the internet but I had to show at least one. I do have to give her credit for the labor.....











 My good friend Jolene made this cute bracelet for her blessing day which is coming up soon. I love it!

Ok, enough bragging for a minute. We are so blessed!!

 This is my Quakers. He is my latest baby. The picture above was taken by Ron for his reflection project. He got a blue ribbon for his picture. Good Job Ron!! 

Yesterday he graduated with the rest of the Ducks to the farm with all the animals. My baby is growing up. LOL....for Christmas I think I will make him a cute little scarf to keep him warm. :)

Isaihas bapatism

 
November 3, 2012 Isaiha was baptized. We are so proud of his decision to do that. It was not an easy choice for him. He was sacred to death of the water. When he saw that his mom had come to see him get baptized he decided to do it.

 One of the most exciting moments for me is when the bishop told Timmy that he could baptize him and confirm him. That was a huge step for Timmy and if you are a parent, you know the joy it brings to a mom.
 He is such a good boy and we are very proud of him.
Love you Isaiha!!

Bailees new do!

 It wasn't that long ago that I remember when Evva would cut her hair. The funny thing was everyone loved her hairdo. I tried to do the same with Bailee but I think it needs to be shorter or Desi needs to do it. she always fixed Evvas hair so cute! Anywho....Bailee LOVES her cousins and wants to grow up to be just like them.
I have to laugh at Meagan because she was so sad when Bailee had cut her hair she wanted to cry. She said "This is my pay back for laughing at Desi when Evva cut her own hair".

Oh we have some mischievous little girls that look so innocent.

Where is the summer going?

Time flies. I cant believe that we are in August already. I have been trying to figure out what I have done with my time.
     The only new up date on the house would be the carpet in our front room but I think we did that before school got out. I still love it! It sure has made a big difference in the smell of the house. When we pulled up the old carpet it had that rubbery stuff underneath. Ewwww

    We spent a week up at the cabin. Oh it was nice.We all needed to just get away. We hiked, fished slept, played games and ate. Oh yea and we did crafts 
 When we got home from the cabin Jed caught a bunny out in our garden. We walked around the neighborhood to see if it belonged to anyone. Finally some guy said he would take it. We didn't want it eating our garden anymore. Well.....2 days later it showed back up. Derrik and Meagan ran it to the pound and wala....the owner is found after the fact. Yep, sorry Tanessa. She said she didn't care but we still felt bad.
 Desi gave Zoee a surprise birthday party that was fun. She said she had no idea. I can't even believe how old she is getting and yet here I am still 28....lol jk
I did take the kids back up to Opher. They like to go up and get rocks. If you have never been up there you should go. Its pretty cool.
 I like it to take pictures. This picture will soon be out dated. Yep, one more on the way. Desi is expecting in January. It will be fun to have a baby around again. We are excited.
Besides the 4th the only thing I can think of is, I put up apricots, pickles and soon....tomatoes. Nothing very exciting. Hard to think that I will soon be back to work. I guess I better go have a little more fun before it all comes to an end and the snow begins to fall.
