Jacob's Babtism!!!

Jacob was just babtized a few weeks ago. We are so proud of him and his decision to get babtized. He is such a good example, and we love him for all that he stands for!!!
Thanks to everyone who came out to support Jacob on his big day. We had a wonderful experience, and so glad we could share it with all of our friends and family!!!

We are HAPPY once again!!!

Jenna is back to being her fun, loving self again. She still has some healing to do, but is happy and back to all her normal girly acitivities!!! It's nice not to have to carry her around everywhere and listen to her cry about everything. I can finally start to get some things done that have been neglected for the past week...


Logan Decorating his cookieThe kids are all ready to go, but Jenna is not too happy...

Jenna had a little accident right before our ward trunk-or-treat (you will have to ask Logan what happened). She got all bandaged up, and was good to go (other than the fact that she couldn't walk for the next couple of days).

We are doing much better now, but she keeps falling on her knees and so it seems like they will never heal!!! We are happy now, and that's all that matters.

Breakfast Outside

Jacob had a slumber party at his friend's last night, so Skylar & Logan decided to have one of their own. They got out there blankets & pillows and slept out on the couches. When they woke up they decided to eat breakfast on one of our tables out back by the citrus trees. It's amazing how well they get along when there are only 2, but when you add in #3 and watch out!!!

A Tribute To My Sisters..

I am so grateful to have the best sisters in the world. I love both of them, and just wanted to say how glad I am to have them in my life. I am so sad Sheree moved to Idaho, but I'm sure she'll be returning in a few years!!! She will be having her fourth child in December and this will be the first time we won't be there for it (but I'm sure she'll send lots of pictures)!!! Kalee is a senior in High School and preparing to leave the nest. I hope she chooses somewhere close to home, so we can have lots of visits!!!
I also want to tell my Sister-in-Laws how wonderful they are. Lawana is always there when you need her, and such a great addition to our family. Lyndsey is the life of the party (and the best pedicurist)!! She is always thinking of others and we are glad she is part of our family. And I can't forget Brandee. Although we don't get to see each other more than once a year, she is so much fun to be with and talk to, always a good friend.
