Sweet Prayers

Sophie went through a phase awhile ago where she always wanted to say the prayer. She would need help but she would get excited to do it. But the last few months we will ask her if she wants to and she replies "No my mommy say it." We haven't pushed it and just say ok Sophie you don't have to.

Last night when we were getting ready for bed she did her usual mommy say it and I did. And then she said she wanted to do it all by herself!

"Dear Heavenly Father....Peese bless the food...Peese bless prayers....Peese bless scrippers (scriptures) bless Omah (grandma) in the name of Jesus Christ Amen."

We are so proud of her.

A New Friend

When we came home from a baptism on Saturday the girls and I were greeted by a new friend...
At first I didn't see it because I was looking at my keys to unlock the door and all the sudden heard a loud, fast, rustling noise as it ran up the wall. I screamed of course. I then composed myself and tried to convince Sophie how cool it was. A little nervous she stepped back and said "Mom take a picture!"
Needless to say we entered the house through the garage. No way was I going to walk under it. When Sophie asked me why we were not going in the front door I told her I didn't want to scare it. Ok so I was scared but that's my story and I am sticking to it!

Pictures that made me laugh today

I know everyone thinks I have probably fallen off the face of the Earth but I have been swamped with homework. Tomorrow is officially my last day of my insane math class!

Friday my computer crashed and my awesome brother Craig is currently saving me once again. So today I am only working one job instead of two. So I am a bit um bored....So I have been looking at old pictures.

While looking through our wedding reception pictures these are the random pictures that just made me laugh.....
This is the way to start a marriage...


We are random

I love this picture

HaHa One of you may have to explain this to me...and why did poor Jessica get cut out?

No worries he didn't actually lick it...I think serious in his little hat...


Im not sure what dance move this is....

Jessica is my favorite in this one. She is ready to take everyone down.
Haha perfect

Lydia 7 Months and GO Boise State!

Today Lydia turned 7 months old. Time is flying by...
She is crawling everywhere and pulling herself up to things. She tries really hard to walk along the couch but she just falls over. She loves her new freedom and is a much happier baby. I was helping Sophie with something the other day and looked over at Lydia and saw...

Before we left Boise we went to the Blue and Orange store to get Boise State was a necessity. And all of their jerseys were on sale! So we had to get one for the whole family...
Chad and I have one too but I haven't gotten a chance to take a pic of all of us.
Sophie is shaking her hand up an down saying "Go Boise State! Go Boise State!!"

Me: "Are you ready for football season Sophie?"
Sophie: "Yes!"
Me: "Who are we going to root for?"
Sophie: Confused look.."I don't know mom.."
Me: : "Let me rephrase. Who do we want to win?"
Sophie: "Oh Boise State!" 

She loves her jersey and wears it pretty much everyday. "Mom can we put our Boise State on?"
We are ready for football

Boise Finale

Saturday night we went over to Grandma and Grandpa's for dinner, homemade ice cream, and fireworks!

We started with poppers which the kids loved!

Then we did sparklers....

We found these awesome lanterns just like in the movie Tangled. Sophie loved it and she still talks about it everytime we watch the movie. She says "we did that mom!"

It went really high and very far. It was crazy. We all enjoyed a firworks show...

Afterwards the kids enjoyed looking at the stars...

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Boise Adventures Part 4

The weather was much better on Thursday and we were able to go water skiing! we were very excited...

We were prepared with our flagman. He's a professional. (he even reminded me to raise the flag a couple times)
Chad showed off his mad skills...
The kids had a blast on the inner tube...
Sophie was so excited to go with daddy

Ty-kell liked it until the boat started

Amea loved it.
 Sophie decided to be brave and wanted to go with just Kaylie. I'll admit I was really nervous. I imagined them hitting one bump and her flying out. She is just so tiny. So I made myself be brave and let her go. (I told her NOT to let go of the handle) And she did great and loved it...
Kaylie and Sophie would have done this ALL day. They were always asking to go.

Kamrie was all smiles
 We have decided we have to live near a lake. Sophie loved the boat and only got off to eat. I could not get her off the boat. She told Grandpa at the end of the day that we need to get a boat....
Someday Sophie....

Boise Adventures Part 3

On Wednesday of our Boise trip as we were getting ready to go water skiing Lydia started crawling...crazy!
When we got to the lake we were nervous because the weather. It was a bit stormy and then it started to hail. So we postponed water skiing until the next day.
We did not want to drive all the way out there for nothing so we let the kids play at the "beach"

Amea sat there the whole time. She didn't care that she was freezing.
Then we drove out to Payette to the cemetery to visit family...

After we went to a park to play that had this awesome slide. It was a really tall spiral slide. Mom remembers when they put this slide in as a little girl. It was the funnest slide ever. They just don't make them like they used too. Sadly I did not get a picture of it. Then it started to rain on us so we headed back. Despite the storm it was a very beautiful day...

More to come!
