Evelyn is four

This sweet girl can turn my day around with one word. She's spunky, fun and extremely creative. She wants to do everything with family and her favorite is Sam.

Summer days have started

Ada's feild day was today. We went and had a picnic lunch with her. It was fun. After watching TV for a bit I kicked them out of the house to play. Ada and Sam decided to host a treasure hunt. They planned it, his stuff and went to invite neighbor kids to do it. Too cute. Always worth kicking them outside.

Parent fails

I always post funny stories about kids, but what about us parents? Well things happen to us too. Jer almost falling out of the ceiling while fixing a leak in the roof and as for me? Well I'm the Ward bulletin specialist that doesn't always spell check. Two weeks ago I put our neighbor's mission call in. But instead of Connie Harris it was Connie Harrie. I kind if want to call her that from now on. And last week, I never got the speakers from the bishopric so I just put in TBA for all of them. Best part? I missed the A in the one and he got up and complained that he'd been labeled as a disease.

Salem Pond

We got to go to Salem Pond after the Payson Temple Openhouse for a picnic. The kids loved the geese.  Sam was more interested in eating the bread than giving to the ducks and geese... I think he might be growing.

Baby was more interested in the bread too, but I love this picture because it has all my family.

Sam had just kicked Evelyn in the bum.  It was pretty funny and it knocked Sam onto his bum.

Thanks Jer for taking my picture!

Payson Temple Openhouse

I LOVE that we live in a temple building age.  It's so neat to be able to take our kids to see the temples.  I hope that they will learn not to take them for granted. The Payson temple and it's apple theme were just beautiful.  The windows were gorgeous and I felt the Spirit even while trying to keep Sam from grumping and jumping.  We took the kids out of school for the day to go.  Ada was super excited, but Sam was so mad.  He didn't want to hold anyone's hand, walk with the group or listen to any of the three grown ups (Grandma Roberson went with us!  It was fun.) I finally had to pull him aside and talk to him.  I ended up carrying him like a baby for about 5 minutes before he relaxed enough to just be him again. Ada wanted to write a comment card after.  "Well (while) I walked thru (through) the temple I could feel the Holy Gost (Ghost)."

Sam took this picture afterwards.  I love it!

Now these are my happy kids!

This kid is so happy today

I got an email saying that I should come to morning assembly today. Sam got 3rd place in the k-2nd 3D art category. He was so ecstatic to get a medal. The ironic thing? He didn't want to do it. Ada did and he got bored waiting for her to finish her project and decided to do one of his own. Well, I'm glad that he gets to experience getting something good when you decide to participate.

Hardest teether

Poor baby. Seth has had his top two teeth coming in for more than a week. My other babies got fevers or fussy for a day or two... So far Seth teeths for more than a week, they go back in and then teeths again... His fever spiked last night and he's been so grumpy today. I finally gave up on being productive and cuddled my sad baby. The only thing to keep his attention for long has been the magic combination of a binkie, a book and a documentary about safari animals.

Showing love

I know my husband loves me because he gave me a kiss first thing when he got home from Father Sons. I know he loves me because he replaced the hook in the bathroom that Ada broke and now I'll have somewhere to put my towel. I know he loves me because he spread out all the wet camping gear so it won't mold. I know he loves me because he shows Sam how to use the vacuum while I'm feeding a teething baby.  I know this man loves me!
