Well, it's been a couple of seeks now since I quite doing pictures everyday. Once the kids started school and dealing with homework and cakes and I go into work once a week now...it just became too much. But, I did recently quit cakes so I should have more time to blog but I will have to attempt the every day in a year thing maybe next year. So, here are pictures of the last several weeks...
My brother bought me a bunch of infused olive oils for my birthday. So cool!
My kids made themselves some stingers. They are a creative bunch.
Finally got a new phone! Iphone that is. I am super stoked!
I attempted making my own detergent. I don't know if I bombed or if that's how it's supposed to turn out but I'm NOT loving it.
My helper sanding down a project for me.
Every kid has done this in this exact chair. Love her!
He lost this side tooth at costco one day. He kept hollering about losing his tooth. He greatly amused the older couple behind us. So much so, they gave me a $2 bill to pay for his tooth fairy. It was quite funny.
When she's cranky, I've been giving her a sucker. I think she likes it.
Went to sunsplash. We had SO much fun!
This girl was unbelievably fearless.
She did good all things considered.
Bahama bucks on our way back.
First day of school!
My big first grader!
My kindergartener. Boo hoo!
My new dream table!
Crab legs birthday dinner.
Birthday party! Everyone brought their best dessert. Holy awesome!
How did I miss this girls 9 month picture? This was taken 2 days late! aaaaaaaa! And it's not a good one at that. Sorry miss May. My life has been crazy busy but this girl is just my little sweetheart. She makes our little family happy every single day!
This looked better before church but she allowed me to put 6 rubber bands in her hair. She enjoys getting dolled up. Oh, and something else worth mentioning that she says a lot is "silly Harlee". Glad I've trained her to tell herself that when she makes a mistake. She says it for me too. "silly mommy". It's so cute.
Took the kids to Brimhall. This was their favorite part. Jaxon even did a flip. They were the smallest and most excited kids out there. It took about 3 or 4 jumps to get to the point that the life guard didn't have to explain the rules anymore. But they finally learned. Harlee and Mayzee were pleasant as well. It was a fun day.
Oh this girl! She's got two teeth. Scoots around. Not so good a napper. Sleeps decent from 8-4/5ish. Needs lot's of attention. Sitting up. Eating on her own. Loves to eat almost anything. Has the sweetest and softest giggle I have ever heard (when she actually gives the effort to giggle). Kicks wildly when excited (usually when I am coming to pick her up). Has an ear piercing scream. And boy I couldn't love her more.
It shocks me how shy this boy can be. We only made it half way through his talk and he just wouldn't say anymore. It was hard not to feel embarrassed. But it was also a little my fault. We hadn't worked very hard on it. BUT also, he is always so excited to speak in primary. I was just a little surprised.
We have been pet free for a while now and the kids and Brian have just been tortured at the thought of having no animals. So he went and bought them water dogs. Apparently they are low maintenance and I don't have to clean their poop. We shall see. They turn into salamanders. It is the first thing Jaxon thinks about when we wakes up and the last thing he thinks about at bedtime. He has not been able to stop talking about them. It's hilarious and not annoying at all. :)
