We went to spend a week in Cali with my wonderful Grandparents and the whole gang! We had a blast and AMAZINGLY we all survived..yes even Dustin and he had no matter what he tells ya!!
We flew in on Sunday June 26th. For me this was the funniest day to watch dustin have a come apart before a during the flight!!

Waitin to board the plane

We let the boys swim and just relaxed

Chunky Baby

Yup!! Thats right apparently I feed my child cubes of butter at a time!! I obviously need to be more aware! I had Maycee in her chair while I was making something earlier in that day and had a thing of butter out I didn't use a whole cube so I left it out knowing I would need it later. When I went to go use it again I searched and searched and searched getting so mad at myself knowing I did not use the whole cube of butter then I began to question myself . Did I use the whole cube of butter Ugh I guess I will get another one out. Just as soon as I put the butter in whatever I was making (this is why you blog when it happens) I notice the chunk of butter by her leg and her going to town on it!! She was just in heaven!! I took it away and we got.............

Strength of others

So I have a new "obsession" im not sure how it all got started but I have been reading the blogs of 4 different families. These people are simply AMAZING!!!! I dont know that if I was faced with their trials that I could have the faith,courage or strength that these families have. I check these blogs close to everyday for the fact that their stories have made me want to try harder to be a better mother,wife,daughter,friend.........and on and on. Reading about their challenges have made me get over those days that it is all about me, as I check their blog, the why me's, I dont have's, I want's and I need's fade away so fast and I am so very grateful for what I DO have. My testimony of the plan of salvation, the power of prayer and the power of a priesthood blessing has grown so much because of these truly remarkable people and their unfortunate trials that they have had and are still going threw. I came upon a new blog today and as I reading I decided that I was going to share their stories not only because I wanted to share their stories but they also could all use a prayer. Here are their links. If you decided to read them be prepared to shed a few tears. PS these families are all from Utah or Idaho. You may have heard their stories before

This couple lost their 18 month old daughter. She fell in a canal in rigby last June/Julyish. This blog is one that you want to go to the post starting when she was in the hospital.

This little boy was 2 I believe and had a fence fall on him. This one is one that to get the whole story find the post that tells about the accident, it happened around thanksgiving.

Dylan is a little boy who was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

This blog I found on Patrick and Ashley's blog. This guys wife and daughter died on Monday. So very heart breaking.

I hope that these blogs are as insprational to you as they are to me!!

Another update!

I really know how awful I am at this whole bloggin thing! I so need to get better at it!!! So here is a little of what each kid has been up to...

Prentend like you dont see Dustin in his g's and PLEASE dont tell him its on here!!

Kayden is just the best big brother and helper anyone could ask for!! He just signed up fpr Tee-ball and is so super excited about it that is all he talks about and let me tell you this child can talk and talk and talk and even you tell him thats enough he has to finish his thought!! He is gettin excited for it to FINALLY be warm enough so he can go do "Cowboy things" with Dustin

Kayden ridin his horse Tucker

We took them to the Extreme bulls and kayden loved it but was more interested in getting a shirt to show off at school. He thinks he is neat stuff
He missed school that day and the next day was show and tell, he of course wore his shirt but he wanted to take his belt buckle. I let him but as we were waiting for the bus I asked him what he is gonna tell his class about it. He said im gonna tell them that my dad bought for me because i had rode a sheep. The look on his face had LIE written all of it!! Kayden is a HUGE story teller...NEVER belive half of what he says!! I told him that would be good but he needed to make sure and not tell a story. When he got home I was asking him about school...what he did well the look of guilt over came him!! I asked what he said about the belt buckle " Im sorry mom!" What did you say kayden " I told them I won it at the bullriding last night." Jeepers what do you do? He just loves tellin storys!!

His note from his teacher it says" Kayden has become a talker or just sits and watches the other kids"


He will walk up to people in walmart and do this!!

Oh the coops!! What do I say about Coops? I know one thing this child makes me say lots of 4 letter words!! He hasnt been doing to much other that causing me major major grief!!! About a week after Valintines day dustin was looking in coopers ears(Dustins obsession ,dirty ears) and he said he saw something red stuck in his ear I went and look and sure enough the little fart had something in his ear! When we asked him if he had put something in his ear he didnt answer us which for cooper is a tale tale sign he is hiding something!! We tryed diggin it out and couldnt really get to it as we were trying I figured out it was a nerd..we had givin them nerds for v-day! Thanks to the advise of my wonderful Dad we got it out with out a hospital trip! However Cooper did NOT like it it took two of us to hold him down!! I bet he wont be putting stuff in his ears again!!

He liked the bullriding but he wouldnt sit still for very long! We felt guilty for getting Kayden a shirt and not Cooper but then didnt have a shirt to fit him so we got him a hat and just as we were getting readyt o leave the guy working at the prca trailor gave him a new cowboy hat!! If you know cooper and his cowboy hats you will know how thrilled he was!! I dont know if cooper is as excited about warmer weather as Kayden is but I am for him to get out of the house!!

Coops and Bodrie at the Bullriding

He was tucker after the long night!


Our little sis N bug it gettin so big!! She is 7 1/2 months!! As of Thursday she was 19.8 lbs! She has everyone in this house wrapped around her finger!!! She has 2 teeth!! She wants to crawl but dosent have it down yet all she can do is get her little butt up in the air!! She dosent want much to do with baby food but she will eat normal food but mostly crackers and gerber puffs. For the most part she is a happy baby but has one heck of a temper!! I am just lovin havin a girl but having a hard time not buying everything I see that is cute!! Im really having issues with flowers and bows it is my latest obsession. If I have an outfit and no flower or bow to go with it I wont put her in it till I find one!!

She loves goin for walks!

She goes nuts when she sees the horses but want 100% thrilled about being on one

Tonight as we were getting everyone all ready to go ut and eat I noticed Copper as usual gackin off not getting his boots found and on. I finally said to the little fart "Where the hell are your boots?" He replys quietly as he walked off " I dont know where the hell my boots are." While he walked around the corner we laughed but the little stink STILL did not get his boots on so I asked him again "COOPER WHERE THE HELL ARE YOUR BOOTS?" He calmly replies "Where the hell are your boots mom?" BAHHHHAAA!!! This child is a hethen!! I swear he looks for things to do to drive me nuts...most definatley our problem child!!! We had someone the other day say to us you can just seein his eyes he is plannin somethin!!

Im not a blogger!!

I have came to it that I am not a blogger!!! I dont know why, I would like to be!! I just dont know how you people do it and are so diligent about it!! So here it is an quick little update. I will post pics soon...well maybe soon :) Kayden has just been goin to school he is reading like a champ. I never realized how hard it is to read with a kid that is just learning TALK ABOUT FRUSTRATING!!! He got a wii fro Christmas and has been wanting to play it non stop so we cam up with a deal. I will play with him intel we pass a level and then it is up and cleaning 1 room before we can play again. It works GREAT!!! Cooper has just been up to his naughty little self. There is just no discipline that works for that kid!!! We have been tellin him that we are gonna call super nanny and he is terrified of her!! Im starting to think that is what we might have to do!!! Maycee is 4 months old 15.9 lbs 25 " and doing good!!! She is starting to be fun ! WOW she is one spoiled girl.. and I LOVE IT!!! I will try to post pics as soon as I can!!
