Therapy Bearz

My little sister is making these super cute bears. You can put them in the microwave and add essential oils to make them smell good. My kids absolutely LOVE theirs and sleep with them all the time. Take a look at the link and if you like them, spread the word!

She is also on Etsy here

Quick catch up

I have a million cute pictures from over the summer but have no patience for blogger. So, to catch up for my lack of blogging I'll just cover the major events...

For starters, Emma started FIRST grade! I can't believe she is so big. I had a really hard time with the idea she would be gone all day but, she loves it!

Another first for Emma...she lost her first tooth!!! She was beyond excited.

The best picture we managed to get of us and Owen. He was not very happy.

Cute Owen

TJ's first day of Preschool! He is so ready to be in kindergarten but was okay with going back to preschool for one more year. But only because he LOVES his teachers.
Love this cute little guy.

I thought this was a great picture. Our recent attempt at potty training has been a success!! (I've been a slacker in this area) Rees will be 3 this week and seems so much older than that. She is adorable and so, so fun!

Owen's first haircut!!


This was a big event for me because it was a much needed vacation for just Jared, me, and Owen with my parents.
Owen's first time at Old Faithful

Last of all, Rees's new haircut!!

That pretty much covers the important stuff....

Our new little man

Meet Owen...I have been enduced with all of my kids and was going to just let this one come when he was ready, but I jumped the gun and had my doctor enduce me. I am really not a patient person. So, we had him on the 19th of May. I'm a little slow posting pictures because for some reason I don't seem to have a lot of free time anymore! But all went well and we are so glad to have him here! He was 7 lbs 11 oz and 21 inches long. My biggest baby by one ounce.

This is Jared's sister, Colleen. I decided to try and deliver without the epidural and was a little nervous so I asked her to come. She used to be a labor and delivery nurse and I was so glad she was there! She helped me through the whole labor and practically delivered the baby herself. Even the doctor was very impressed with her.

Birthday Boy!!!

My boy turned 4 a couple of weeks ago! I can't believe he is getting so big.

Just a few of my favorite things about TJ right now:

  • He is very affectionate. He gives me an amazing amount of hugs every day and I absolutely love it. He also always tells me how much he loves me. He is funny because he is always very careful to make sure to tell me he loves Daddy the same as he loves me.

  • Jared's sister lives next door to us and has cows and chickens. For some reason he has made it a point to bless the cows and the chickens every time we pray.

  • Whenever I get mad at him he always says, "But I still love you, Mom." Seriously, how can you stay mad after he says something like that?

  • He loves to work, especially outside with his dad. He would choose to do that over anything in the world.

  • He loves anything that has to do with dinosaurs or sports. He has decided we are going to name our baby "sports".

There are a million other things I love about my little guy, most of all he is just the sweetest little boy ever!

For his birthday we went with my Dad and his young men from Idaho to a Jazz game. TJ was SO excited!!! Here are some pictures from the game. We got to go early and sit on the floor and watch a few of the players warm up.

Cute kids on the court

The fam (minus Rees) with Kyle Korver. He was nice enough to pose for a picture with us before going back to the locker room.

Watchin' the game

TJ and Jared

T and Grandpa. He loved the noisy balloons they gave us.

My Dad had 2 seats on the 4th row and took TJ down with him for the 4th quarter. He LOVED it! He kept getting really excited and hitting the guy in front of them with his balloons. The guy was a good sport about it though, after he saw who was hitting him.

We LOVE Idaho!!!

For New Years this year we packed up and headed to Idaho to stay with my mom and dad for a few days. We had way too much food, stayed up way too late playing settlers, and built a GIANT snowman! Jared during one of our many late night settlers games

The finished snowman. The kids LOVED how big it was, and I think Jared and my Dad were pretty proud of it too :)


This last one really has nothing to do with Idaho, but this is me at 20 weeks. It's amazing how much faster you get huge with each pregnancy!

Gonna even things up

Jared and I just found out today we are going to add another BOY to our family!!! With our new addition we will have an even 2 girls and 2 boys and we couldn't be more excited! I have been convinced this whole pregnancy that I was having another girl, which I would have loved too, so when the tech told us it was a boy I was totally shocked. TJ has had his heart set on having a brother and has already asked me a number of times when I am going to get his brother out. He can't wait!

It's A....
I had an ultrasound today and was so hoping to see if we were having a little boy or girl. BUT, my little stinker was not cooperating and my doctor couldn't see a thing. I knew going in there was a good chance they would not be able to tell with me being only 16 weeks but was still hoping. Oh well, the baby is healthy and we will have another ultrasound in 4 long weeks. Until then, this baby is still an "it".
