chocalate challenge

Being sick has its advantages and disadvantages. I had a pretty yucky sick day and as you can tell the kids had a wonderful time getting themselves some chocolate milk. Kerry walked in just in time. I was back in my room laying down and I never saw a thing until I pulled this picture up to blog it. Kerry was such a sweetheart he cleaned it all up and the kids. I always wonder how my kids and my house are going to make it through pregnancy but they always seem to. This is Madison ,Lexi and Hallie. Hallie came out the cleanest. Maybe it was because she didn,t want to get her princess outfit dirty.
Haven't you wanted to roll around in chocalate before.

Madison has a hard time going to sleep at night.

One night after fighting her all night we found her fast asleep with this awesome easter basket on her head. This was after she found the quiet books and stripped them of all there peices, got ten drinks, and told us she loved us and needed a hug or a kiss several times

I know as a parent we find our kids doing some of the funniest things. What are some funny sleeping things your kids have done?

Just a quick announcement. We are expecting baby #5. My due date is January 21st.

Happy Birthday Janae

Happy Birthday Janae !
well, its janae's birthday today, just thought i'd mention a few things about her

she is getting really good at sewing, she has made about 49 bizilion quiet book pages (i thout 50 bizilion would be a bit of an exaggeration), not all of them are ours, she has helped quite a few people with theirs and other little progects like making little aprons for the kids so that when she does craft day with the kids they dont get as messy and have something fun to wear, and she is pretty crafty, she has made about 48 bizilion bridal shower and baby shower invitations, they allways look real nice, everyone saves them in their scrapbooks and stuff, and, she is really good at making sure that the kids make it to their little activities and stuff, and doing fun stuff with the little ones that dont go to school, She is also a good cook, sure there are some things she makes that i dont like, but she does make alot of really good stuff, and she does a good job of trying to do things for me that i like, and shes really good at remembering other peoples birthdays and stuff.
I Love You Janae

This is a cute picture of Lexi. Yesterday when I was getting ready she climbed into the cubbard and shut the door. I ran and got the camera and she would open and shut the door saying cheese.

Here is a few cute pictures of Maddie and Lexi. We do craft day 3 times of week with Lori and Cherina and this picture was my turn. We made pudding and painted pictures with it.

I think that this time of day is my favorite. It is 7 am and all my kids are still asleep. I am able to do whatever I want within reason. We had a blast welcoming home Daimen yesterday. He seems to be healthy and happy. We are going to be having a pizza part for him on Saturday. Anyone is welcome just call me for the details. If you have not had Breckens brick oven pizza yet this is your chance. I swear I always eat way to much.

Missionary homecoming.

Kerry's little brother Daimen is coming home from his mission today. We are so excited.He first was called and sent to Tonga . Were he had some troubles with some other missionaries. He had the choice to stick it out in the mission home the rest of the mission or choose another mission. He happily went to Oreogon were he finally got to be a real missionary. I am so proud of him. There Dad died two years before his mission and he still got prepared and served a faithful mission. Way to go Daimen.
When Kerry and I got married his brother Brecken was on his mission. I first met him at the airport when he got home. The funny thing was that I was 7 months prego and Kerry had dropped me off at the front doors while he parked because we were almost late. I ran in the doors and there he was. I was the only family there. His flight was a little early and the rest of his family was right behind Kerry.Talk about awkward. Luckily there was no question who he was they all look alike.
So today I think that I will walk in the doors with Kerry and not ruin the first moment of seeing him. Does anyone have any good mission reunion stories

Kerry is sick. That is such a rare occasion in itself it is definatley newsworthy. He has slept for 3 days now. I think that I have learned in these three days how much he really does with the kids. I climb into bed with him at night and feel like I havent seen him all day. I really have missed out on his companionship.
He did make it to church yesterday for testimony meeting but immediatly went home to sleep.
He even missed work today. He has had a little fever and his whole body is sore. But what I notice the most is his sleep. Poor Guy hope he gets better soon.

We love you and hope you have a good day.
We have had a very busy week around here. I have had two Modbe parties and then the what woman want expo, were we have a booth. I also am the Young women sports director and we have had indoor soccer start this week. What a fun sport I love working with the Young Women and seeing there self esteem grow from sports.
Bree and Tyler are moving back to St. George for a few months and we are so excited to see them today.
Megan is excelling in school and has had a couple of school parties were they recognize the top students. She also had a birthday party.
Ashley is in Gymnastics and is very good at it. She is in level 4 and I would not be surprised to see her jump very fast.
Madison is, well just Madison. She is earnig money for going to bed and not getting out or yelling from her room.
Lexi loves baths, milk and excaping to Emmas to play with Mason.
Kerry is still doing search and rescue and obviously from previous posts is still into Motorcycles.(or as Lexi says CYCLES) The Concrete buisness has slowed down considerably and so he is getting alot done on our yard.
