It’s the little things…


It is the little things that make me happy:

This cute boy.

He will go and play and then come up to me and put his hand on my leg and then run off again to go play. I love the little affection.

We have been storing in our backyard extra flagstone and buckets of granite and sand and they are all gone!!! Makes me so happy!


When Whitney gives the FHE Lesson and is so excited about being a part of it:

(Her crazy skirt above makes me happy)

Kaitlyn and her sweet spirit and her desire to do good and obey:


Finding a way to shop with Bradley. He is the hardest to shop with:

(And for Whitney to be so willing to push him.)


Whitney cracks me up with her sayings lately. Adding the phrase : Silly Goosie when she talks to me or when we were offering her a cookie and she kept being silly saying Yucky… blah!! She keeps things funny at our house.


Little one year olds helping in the kitchen make me happy:

Doing projects that I have been wanting to finish for years:


Eating lunch outside with my kids!


Brads Birthday!

Brad is One!!!

We had such a great day.

He woke up and we let him open a present. It was Car Keys. We went and got Icees and went to the Park. Came back and my Parents came over for dinner and Cake. It was such a great day! I cant believe you are one Brad! Here are some things about you.

*You were a hard sleeper but we have finally gotten to the point where you will go to bed around 7pm and wake up at 7am. With out waking. *You loved your bottles but we are just doing them at night-time. Especially since we are traveling next month.
*You are all Boy. You love all things boy and you keep me busy. I have to keep a close eye on you bc you love to climb and explore.
*You are a pretty good eater, although you don’t love your high chair, and you have to have a spoon or fork to eat like everyone else.
*You don’t sleep very well outside of YOUR bed. Makes life a little harder but you do sleep well in your bed.
*You take a morning nap around 9:30am-11:30am and an afternoon nap at 3-4pm
*You love your sisters but you know that Whitney is a little rough with you, but they do make you laugh.
*You love your Daddy lots!
*Sometimes you are easy going and sometimes not- It can switch quickly.
*You are ok to play by yourself.
*You love to get in the fridge and climb up in there.
*Before you do something you know you are not suppose to do, you shake your head NO like you know it is not ok.
*You LOVE balls.
*You make your needs be known. When you need something you will make lots of noise until we get it right.
*You love drinking water. You always need a drink with Mealtime
*You melt my heart and I love seeing your happy face each morning
*You don’t really like baths for too long. They are fun for 5 mins and then you are done. Same with Swimming-
*You love stuffed animals. You will pick one up and just carry it around giving lots of hugs and loves.
*You keep me laughing!
*You make me smile so much when I am around you and melt my heart.
*I was nervous about having a boy but you made it all better and keep lighting up my days!

I love…

I love finding the little toys that my kids set up at nighttime. I am going to miss this terribly one day.


The girls got new swim suits for the summertime.


I love snuggling with him when he will let me

Ps. I love his selfie


One night, Dad had to work late so the girls and I just hung out until late and acted goofy. I just didn’t want the moment to end… they got to bed late that night but it was worth it.



Mothers Day 2014. I love my family! (Wish Alma could have gotten in the picture)



Old post I forgot to post


We went out to dinner as a family a few months ago. It was so fun to have our family together.

One day I made a Hogi Sandwich and Brad snatched it up from me and started eating it like crazy. He ended up eating 80% of it. I was impressed!

We borrowed this table for Whitney’s Birthday from my mom for a few days and we had a great time borrowing it.
