4 years together

4 years-Our lives have changed so much! 2 schools, 4 places we've lived and 2 sweet babies later I love you more than I ever have. You're amazing sweetie and I love you with all my heart-always and forever! We spent the night doing sealings at the temple. The sealer said now 21 other couples share your anniversary and I thought that was a pretty cool thing. We got dinner and a treat and just got to hangout-great night!

B man update

This little mr. has enough personality and attitude for 3 little boys! He can go from such a sweetie to crazy to such a little stinker in no time-but we wouldn't change a thing about him! He has started saying some of the funniest/cutest things:
-he was brushing my hair and stopped and said, "now you're pretty mama."
-he gets excited and will tell you a big list of things like we're going to Walmart and then we'll go to the park and then... and he'll say these big long lists. We were running errands and I told him all the places we were going, Once Upon a Child was one of them, and as he was repeating them back to me he changed it to Child of God :)
-he thinks Grandma Kris' dog, Murphy, is his cousin
other updates:
-NO MIMI! I can't believe how smooth this transition was. We went swimming at Miracle and his rubber ducky went down one of their big drains. Then a week later he was in the bath and asked for his mimi and said I didn't know where it was and he said it went down the drain. I just rolled with it and that was that! He cried for it a couple times but then whenever he asked for it we just told him it went down the drain and he was ok with it.
-his cowboy boots still go everywhere but we're working on the flipflops
-when he says movie it sounds like "moody"
-we still sing I love to see the Temple and I am a child of God every night-he can sing both songs all the way through
-we've attempted wearing big boy underwear a few times and it hasn't really stuck so we're forgoing that until he shows a little more interest-hopefully soon!
We love you Bryker!

Backyard Boys

One of the major perks of our new house is a fenced in back yard-we are loving it! It has been a blast to just set the boys loose and watch them have fun playing {oh, and that Bryke can run around "nakey" whenever he wants, crazy boy!}. When we bought the house we bought a new hobby for Ter, the lawn. He has a love/hate relationship with it and those dang weeds! Love seeing my boys all happy and smiling together. {3 cutest boys I have ever seen!}

Keegan is 8 months

Holy cow I don't think this kid can get any cuter! Here's what he's been up to:

·         Has 2 teeth
·         Is a crawling machine
·         Not so sure about his crib that we finally got put up {at about 8 ½ months he is doing much better sleeping in it-still wakes up to eat a couple times at night}
·         Such a little snuggle bug like full on put his little head on your shoulder and make you feel like this is the best moment ever snuggle.
·         Loves his big boy food
·         Is a little biter-mama is not a big fan of this
·         Can clap and waves
·         Walking might not be too far away-he loves to cruise while holding onto one of Bryke’s bikes.
·         He babbles all the time and it is the cutest thing ever.
·         He is still such a happy, smiley loving baby-he makes quick friends wherever he goes

We love you Keegster!

Declo High School {Class of 2003}

Ter is officially an old man-he has been out of high school for 10 years! We went to Declo on Saturday and Ter rode in the parade and the boys and I got to hangout with Breawna, Emily, Tori and their kids. Bryke was so stressed out because his dad left and then had a little meltdown when daddy went by on the float, threw candy at him and then just kept on going. So sad but funny at the same time-we're going to have to work on the parade thing. I feel pretty lucky that Ter has a close group of friends that he still talks to regularly and that they all married great girls that I get along with. And then Ter is a total people person and can pick right back up with someone he hasn't seen in forever-so we totally skipped over the I haven't seen you in 10 years this is so awkward moments which I was definitely ok with!
^^such a happy boy!
Between the 4 of the guys that are married there are 9 kids under 4; 7 girls and our 2 boys

We went to the parade and then we went to the UpperCrust for lunch-have you ever seen 5 sleeping babies at the same time?! This equals a miracle!
{Declo High School class of 2003} A bunch of Ter's friends have moved back to the Declo area and I could just see the wheels in his head spinning so who knows where we'll be down the road but if my boys could have as great of friends as Ter did in high school I would move to Declo in a heartbeat!

Just keep swimming

We tried a two week swimming lesson session for the first time and for the most part Bryke loved them! He was in a class with 3 other boys, Jett, Mack and Cash. He was the youngest by almost a year but kept right up with the other boys. He is now a pro bubble blower (he practices in his drink now, little stinker), is much more comfortable in the water and even jumped off the deck once on his own! So proud of our little fishy!

Love you Baby Boy

Hi my little sweetie,

 I just wanted to tell you how much I love you--words can't even describe it! Thank you for being such a little ball of sunshine that has endless cuddles to give.

Love, your mama

Happy 4th of July!

We kept with tradition and spent the 4th in Raft River-and had a {mostly} great time! We spent the first part of the day all hanging out at Kenny and Cheryl's house. Ter and Nicole set us up our own little waterpark so we didn't have to deal with the craziness of the slides at Steadman's. The kids had a great time playing and we loved being able to keep track of them! Then we all loaded up and headed to the big party. This is where the mostly part comes in-when we were unloading all the kids down in the little parking area one of the kids wandered over by a dog that was chained up to a truck's hitch. The dog wasn't being super friendly and it it was just making me nervous so I went over to get him and the dog ran out and munched the back of my leg-ouch! There was one really bad puncture and then four little ones. (the dog had all it's shots so that was good but it still ended up infected pretty bad but everything is good now.) That put a little big of a damper on the night but we still had a lot of fun.

The boys and I made these cute 4th of July shirts that we might have to do every year now. I love my family and am so grateful that we live in this country!

We hit the Rupert parade on our way to Raft River with Casey and Brett's families.
Bryke had such a great time playing with all of his cousins. I love that we all live close enough that we can get together pretty often!
I am one lucky lady to have such amazing sister-in-laws! 
 Kendal, David, Bryker and Mia all joined in on the pie eating contest. Bryke wasn't too sure about it and took only a couple bites but the rest were loving it!
