Wow What a Looker


Eliza is getting big and she is beautiful. Here is a picture to prove it.

Our First Birman Blessing Amelia Was Baptized

Amelia was baptized on Saturday, May 23rd. She is the first of our beautiful blessings to enter the waters of baptism and I owe it all to my wonderful husband who made the decision a about 9 years ago to join the church. With that decision came the life we live now and I am so proud and honored to be his wife. It was so amazing to see him baptize his first of four children and to do it with such authority and integrity. Amelia is so smart and spiritually gifted and I know that she already has a testimony that is large enough for 3 people. She will make a great leader some day in the church and with spirits like her at the forefront of the church I know that the future looks bright. Congratulations Amelia for making the choice to side with the right. Here are some pictures of our family and friends. Amelia got to get baptized along with her best friend who happens to have a birthday in May as well so this made the day even more special since Gabbi's baptism was a first for her parents as well.

Feeling Sentimental

Up late tonight and feeling sentimental. Friends are moving and times are tough. Thanks Erica for being a great neighbor and friend and I hope we still get to see each other lots even more then just bingo. I know my kids will miss the heck out of your kids. They wont have anyone to throw things to over the wall. Anyway, thanks to all my friends for keeping me sane. I know I say crazy and embarrassing things all the time but you stick with me anyway. I hope all of you are well and if you every need me I am there. OK enough with the mushy stuff. Love ya all. New pictures will be coming soon.

My TBall Man
















Hayden is playing t-ball this season and he is such a stud. He already throws with a rocket and hits into the outfield. Well the whole field is the outfield but he really can throw like a rocket. Here are some of his studly pictures and a few of his wild sisters.

Eliza Update




Well I thought I would update some Eliza pictures since I haven't posted anything basically since she was a month old. Life is typical for winter around here. Jimmy blessed our offspring with the tendency for croup every time they get sick and asthma and I blessed them with a weak immune system so to make a long story short, every winter we get sick and I mean sick all winter. Since Eliza has been born 2 and 1/2 months ago she has been sick 4 times and somehow avoided the stomach flu that passed through us like a wave of poo and throw up so that makes 5 illnesses that have hit all of us. It would be easier if it all happened at once but of course one brings it home and the other get it in succession. I am the latest victim of this cold which is the worst and Eliza and Amelia are now getting over it. I am sure that life could be a lot worse but when you have children who cant breathe every time they get a cold it is paralysing when they do. I am having to control my anger which is not easy to do every time I see someone who is sick or has a sick child out in public. If they only knew that they are like a time bomb for my family. Anyway, enough of the bad attitude but I am writing while I am wiping my nose. Love you all and if you bring your sick kids out in front of me prepare for the worst. Ahhhhh new years resolution to tone down the anger. Hopefully you won't be the one to make me fail.


Love
