To answer your questions…

Sorry, I guess I wasn’t very clear about my “announcement”.  When I wrote the post “I have a baby in my tummy” (May 16th) I was just barely pregnant (2 weeks).  I didn’t have a clue that I was pregnant and wasn’t thinking about having another baby for quit a while.  So I was quite […]

Oh, what do you do…

When Wes is gone and all the world is sunny???  Wes was gone on a REALLY LONG Super Activity with the Young Men in our ward for 6 FULL DAYS!  Can I just say, we are really missed him?  Especially me =(.  So what have we been doing to keep our sanity? *  Swam at […]

The Joke was on ME!

So… you remember that post a while ago titled “I have a baby in my tummy”?  Yeah… Well… there really was.  I didn’t have a clue that I was pregnant for the longest time and was a little shocked when I found out but we are extremely excited to bring another sweet little spirit into […]


Recently, Hannah has started writing letters and asking how to spell things.   She has known for a long time that there are two “H’s”, two “A’s”, and two “N’s”.  But it took awhile for her to concede and decide that she no longer wanted to be “HHAANN” and can now spell her name the right […]

Mount Si

The Saturday before our backpacking trip, Wes and I got a babysitter and headed to Mount Si for “training”.  As we drove there we realized that this is the first time since we have been married that we are going on a hike without kids.  Wow!  I guess that is what happens when you have […]

My little Animal Lover

  A couple weeks ago, some friends and I went to Forest Park.  They have a wonderful petting zoo there.  All my kids loved it but Kaitlyn especially adored the animals.  At first I held Kaitlyn up to the calf so she could pet it and then I tried to move onto something else and […]

Bunnies, trees, and holes

        While in  Arizona my Uncle Steve asked Jacob, “So, your going to kindergarten soon, are you ready?”  He replied, “Not yet, I have to learn to tie my shoes.”  Uncle Steve told him to hop up on his lap and he would teach him how.  Thanks Steve!! He is NOW ready for kindergarten […]


Saturday night, Wes and I arrived home safely from our four day backpacking trip.  (Mom, thanks again for watching the kids!!!)  I will leave it to Wes to write that blog and I will insert my comments along the way, that way you get both of our views, which believe it or not, differed drastically […]
