Family fun

The kids all had such a good time at Lagoon. It was a big hit for Natalie she loved the rides. Natalie liked riding the rides with her cousin Brianna.
We went to Colorado in May and had a great time with Jim's family. The kids loved posing for the picture on Grandpa's lap. lol. As you can see Natalie is the only one who is down with chillin on grandpa's lap.

This picture was taken in Estes park which is right by Rocky National Forest.

looks like a Natalie sandwich to me.

Thanks Mom

My Mom ROCKS!!! I spent the day at her house today as she helped me piece together a quilt. I wanted a cute quilt for Natalie to go on the bed in her room. So on Thursday I went to her book shelf and found a pattern I wanted for a quilt. Then I went to her fabric closet where I found what I wanted and on Friday we managed to finish the top. I had such a good time with my mom. Putting the quilt together was addicting and fun. I'm just so glad I had my mom to help me. Here's to you mom. Thank you and I love you.

Girls just wanna have fun and sleep.

Natalie is one hyper lil' Chick. We have so much fun with all of the girly things. I discovered today that Natalie love's her glasses. She is one good baby. I always thought Timmy was the best baby ever, but Natalie might have one upped him with her sleep habits. She is really good at taking naps and loves to play in her crib before she lays her sweet head down. However bedtime is a different story. Once we get her to sleep we know we have about 10-12 hours of before we will hear from her again. Getting her to sleep for bedtime can teach us patience. She has sure won the hearts of her brothers.

Merry Christmas 2008

Natalie lost the spot of baby Jesus at the Woodin family performance of the Nativity to her cousin William. At the Willfords she was the only one to try out for the spot. The negative side to her performance is she looks like a boy without a hairbow. We had a grand time with the Willfords on Christmas eve.
Christmas comes everyday at our house when we let the kids play elefun. This gift sure won the heart of Timothy.

Natalie's first Christmas. She tried so hard to crawl, but couldn't figure it out until the day after Christmas. Timmy told me the other day that Natalie crawls like a turtle. I was impressed with his observation.

We made truffles the monday before Christmas for FHE. All three boys had a fun time dipping, rolling, and eating.

Look who's 5

Happy Birthday Wesley. Wesley's birthday was November 25th. We went to the Blackfoot swimming pool for his party. He was so excited to go swimming he put on his life jacket to open presents even when it was mentioned it was not necessary. The top picture is such a funny story. Wesley's aunt Katie had been teasing him for a while that she was going to get him a barbie doll. Wesley of course objected to these teasings. When Katie handed him his gift he was really excited to open it and when he pulled it out he said "Katttie, you are naughty. Ahh, Kattie. I'm not a girl. Katie barbie dolls are for girls." What a belly laugh. Katie made top marks on Wesley's list with a backup present (a spiderman scooter).

Happy Holidays

This year as a family we decided to focus on traditions and memories for Christmas instead of a lot of presents. So here is our first memory. We have spent two weeks planning and building a gingerbread house to donate to the gateway for humanity. Sorry this picture is not rotated. We took it down to Mystique and Wesley was helping us put on the finishing touches.

This is a really good picture of Wesley. lol. The front of our house.

This was minutes before 2:00pm, which was the deadline for the entry. We made it with time to spare.

Some opps's along the way. We mis-measured the quantities of Gelatin in the mixture for our shingles. Lots of fun things to laugh about along the way.

Here is the house pattern we used. I think ours turned out pretty good.
