School Sing-a-long

How fun! I love Kaden's school. They are having a big sing-a-long for the holiday's tomorrow morning but the afternoon kindergarten class wouldn't be able to sing so the principal had a mini sing-a-long and Kaden got to perform. I loved it. They did so good. Kaden in on the top row in the middle wearing a Santa hat. Go Kaden!

Start the Holidays right...



They have this tradition out here in Eagle Mountain called Santa on a firetruck. Cute idea, right? I always thought it was, but then it happened. They tell you on the flyer that it's from 8am till done. What does that mean? Well, the first year we were here it came at 8:04am and we missed it, the kids were sad and I felt bad. The next year they came around 9am so we saw that. This year, the kids waited all morning and didn't want to go to the store cause they were waiting for "Santa" . When Santa finally came, around 11:30am, the firetruck was practically speeding through our neighborhood. Santa didn't even wave at the kids, he just threw some candy and sped away. Is this tradition getting better or worse as the years go on? You tell me. My Mother-in-law told me her son waited 4 hours outside for Santa. It was cold that day!
What a way to start the holiday's, don't you think?

Emma and Sarah's Royal Princess Party!




Ok, my life is complete. Now I know why I love having a little girl. This was so cute. Emma and her cousin Sarah, who are the same age, went together. It was really nice of Mary to get Sarah all ready and looking cute. She is almost done with her pregnancy, about a week and a half I think left, and she hasn't been feeling too great.


Grammy came and we walked around with them while they made there own wands, played princess games, listened to story time and got a picture with Cinderella, and danced with Belle. This was actually a fundraiser for our Stake "Hearts for the Holiday's" Every year our stake gives families that are having a hard time an opportunity to still have a good Christmas. The price to get in was a bag of diapers or wipes per princess. So cute huh? I just couldn't resist.

Kaden's First Day of Kindergarten.... CRY!!!!














Oh, boy! I have been waiting for this for the past 5 1/2 years and now I can't stop it from coming. Kaden couldn't be happier. Me, I miss my boy!
Some people, mainly my sister, think that I am overreacting and being silly about this whole thing and I should be soooo excited to see him leave. I'm sorry, guess I'm not normal.
When he ran into that classroom I could just feel his innocence, childlike, personality melt away leaving room for classmates, teachers and bullies to fill up. I am no longer there to protect, provide and nurture him. I know, I know, Krista it is only 3 hours a day. But still, it's just the beginning.

On a happier note, he is very excited and so I am for him. He is so smart and fun that I am sure he will be just fine. He is going to the new elementary school that was just built in Eagle Mountain and I couldn't be happier about that. The other school I have heard soo many negative things that I don't think I could have let him go. His teacher is awesome, he knows a lot of kids in his class so I am happy.

I Am A Mother!

I am so glad to be a mother! I think it is THE most important job that anybody, every, could do. When I look around and see those that want to choose other things then to do what they were born to do. It breaks my heart.

We are all different mothers. We all have different roles that we need to play in our lives. Some are single moms, some working moms, sometimes your kids drive you so crazy you wish you weren't the mom. We are all different, but we are all the same in our Heavenly Father's eyes and He gave us this huge responsibility that I hope we never take lightly.

Those that rock the cradle, rule the world. I love that quote because it is so true. You as a mother can do so much for our human race. Please know that you are important, your work does matter. And don't let Satan or his helpers make you think any different.

I Am A Mother and I love it!

Erinn's Baby Shower

I threw I baby shower for my sister-in-law, Erinn Williams. This is her first baby and she is having a girl! I am so excited for her. Here are some great pictures. It was really cool because all of Erinn's sisters were able to make it, even from Califonia, and only one of the sister in law's wasn't there. Chloe, we missed you!
I enjoy doing parties. It's kind of a hobby of mine.

Eclipse Night!!!!








WOW!!!! I had such a good time with the girls in my ward, Cindy, and my sister Trisha. We went to dinner together, YUMMY, then on to the movie. I have to say that I enjoyed this one the best so far. Edward was much better at acting then the others and the newborns were awesome. Emmett was so funny and I really enjoyed them telling about Rosalie and Jasper's stories.

The wolves, of course, were awesome!

I can't believe they are making me wait a whole year for the next one. Until then, TWILIGHT BABY!

Emma's 3rd Birthday Party



Emma was born on April 14 2007. She weighed 7 Lbs 2 oz and 19 inches long. She was a princess from the time she set foot in this world. We love her so much and am so glad she is apart of this family.
She wanted to have a ballerina party so that's what we did. Her cousins came, along with Grammy, Papa and Papa B, aunt Trisha, Aunt Mary and Uncle Jimmy were also present. Not to mention her Aunt Ellie, Maddie, Uncle Jonathan, and Andrew. There are so many other people that couldn't make it that love Emma so much and you were in our thoughts.
Trisha did a little ballet class, then we played "Pin the Tutu on the Ballerina" and had cake and ice cream. She did real good on her presents this year. We all had a great time.

We Love You Emma!!!!!

Day Out With the Ladies




My sister and I went with our cousins, Meredith and Doris, to Brick Oven in Provo a couple of weeks ago. I had so much fun with the girls. I have been missing just girl time. I had to bring Cameron of course but my other cousin, Forest, watched my other two kids so I was in heaven. The food was good and the company was wonderful. Thanks girls! We need to do this again soon.
Hopefully Forest will get that job there so we can get a family discount!

Easter 2010





We had a great Easter this year! The kids loved there baskets and best of all we got to have general conference right on Easter Sunday! I love this church and our wonderful prophets and apostles. The church is true, it's awesome, and I am so glad to be apart of it.

Have a great day!

While My Husband is at School...




I have become a avid reader ever since my husband works 60 hours a week and goes to school the rest of the time. Not that I'm complaining. I am very thankful he has a good job and is getting his MBA. It just leaves me at home a lot on my own with my children. So when my kids go to sleep... what do I do?
I read.
Lately, I have been reading Fablehaven. I am really liking it. I think my next book will be the new "Women Power" one by President Ukdorf (cant remember the real name of the book)

I recommend this book to anyone who wants a break from the day to day life.
I have never read a fantasy before but this one has lots of twists and turns in it to make it exciting.

Go book reading!

Cameron is now 7 months old and showing good signs of crawling soon. I am guessing in a week he will be all over the house! I love watching the mile stones in his life. The two older kids are so excited as well.

Potty Training My Emma




Ok so we stared potty training Emma in the end of January. She has had her ups and downs but nothing too horrible. Except.... she would NOT poop in the potty. I tried practising with her, having her wash her own panties out, I would give her time outs, I would tell her she could have 5 star burst!!!! Emma loves Barbie's and doesn't have one yet. I got a barbie that I have had since I was a little girl still in the box. Sleeping Beauty Barbie! I told her she could have it if she went in the big girl potty.

Today is a NEW DAY!!!!!


She Did IT!!!!!!!!!!

After months of cleaning poopy panties and all the frustration she finally did it.
I am so glad!!!
