 ...This sweet boy is 4 months old. Already?!? He has always loved his binky... at least until yesterday. Now when you try and give it to him he will open his mouth as wide as he can and put his tongue in the way. Silly baby. I hope it is just a short-lived thing because he has been fussy without it!!...
 ...Andrew received the Webelos merit badge and the Arrow of Light award last night. So proud of my boy for working hard. I am grateful for great cub scout leaders who have helped Andrew not only earn these awards, but have instilled a love for the scouting program in my boy. What a cool experience!!...
 ...We had SO.MUCH.FUN. at Boondock's last night for Kevin's work party!! The company Kevin works for rented Boondock's for the night, so we had free reign. We enjoyed bounce houses, arcade games, mini golf, bumper boats, and go karts. They even fed us dinner and treats. We stayed up until the minute they closed, and the kids could have kept going. So thankful for a fun family night!!...
 ...Kevin and I had seen Ryan Shupe and the RubberBand a few different times, but it had been several years. When we found out they were coming to Tooele to have a free concert we put it on the calendar, and went as a family to the concert. It brought back a lot of happy memories for us and was such a fun night!...
...simple and classic end of summer break fun...
 ...More simple classic fun... a card table fort. We jazzed it up with Christmas lights...
 ...And just like that, 10+ inches are gone. Carrie wanted to donate her hair, so we went tonight to get her hair chopped off. She looks so cute, and we loving it!...
 ...my handsome boy scout!...
 ...Flying and traveling the world. They built an airplane out of pillows and blankets...
...Ready or not, Andrew and Carrie are back to school! I wish they would stop growing up so fast!!...
**SIXTH and THIRD grade**
 ...sweet brothers...
 ...Little man has started rolling, so you never quite know what to expect when he wakes up anymore. He is never in the same place you laid him down, and gets into all sorts of weird positions!...
 ...It's a good thing he's so dang cute!!!... He can roll from his back to his tummy, but not tummy to back. He insists on rolling over, but then gets upset and screams, because then he is "stuck" on his tummy. After doing this many many times during the night, I was exhausted, and had the brilliant idea to buckle him into his swing for the rest of the night. He couldn't roll over, and we all finally got some sleep!! (at least for a few hours). I bet you can guess where he will be sleeping tonight... ;)
 ...Happy happy birthday to me!! My cute family decorated, so we could have a party. :) 
I sure love them!!...
 ...chubby froggy baby...
 ...Be still my heart. 
This girl.
 She is such a delight. 
There are just no words for how much I love and adore her!...
 ...Meet the teacher day at preschool. Matthew is lucky to be in the same class as his two friends Harrison and Ted. They are going to have so much fun together!...

...Carrie is always drawing or coloring something. These are the pictures I have been finding all over the house lately. She is becoming quite the artist!!!...
