Going Private...

So I always have the debate of whether or not to go private, but I recently had a comment that made me realize that it is not worth putting our life out there for the world to see when you really have no idea who is reading what you post. I would rather be safe then sorry... so if you would be interested in still knowing what we are up too then I would love to invite you. All are welcome to read: family, old friends, new friends, friends of friends, friends of friend's friends. You can leave your email in the comment section or email me at
Also I am just going to post on my old blog....

So I finally was ready for Brynnly to get her first real hair cut and she was so excited about it, until afterwards when she looked in the mirror and no joke cried for AN HOUR, holding her hair in her hand and would not let it go, so then I put it in a baggy for her. She grabbed a brush and made me keep brushing her short hair and kept saying "this will make it grow back mommy." crying with real tears coming down her face. ( I video taped her acting like this)
But after she was done being Drama Queen she realized that she loved it and kept telling me how pretty she looked with her new short hair.

It makes her look older and makes me realize my little girl is growing up too fast.

This GIRL had a birthday...

So we had a PARTY!

We usually do birthday lunches without the kiddos, but I thought that it would be fun to have everyone all over with the kids. 8 adults and 15 kids

Our attempt to get a picture of all the kids, but didn't turn out too well... my favorite part is watching the moms trying to get the kids to all look and smile!
The birthday girl turned 28, and doesn't look a day over 16!! Cass, I sure hope I look that good at your age...

I always bust out the camera too late and didn't get too many pictures of the kids playing together, but for the most part they all got along great and had a fun time together... as long as nobody tried to take the vacuum away from Jack! (Lis, you seriously need to get him one of those)

And at the end these 2 little guys were going at it for a couple minutes for the drumstick and it was so funny because Lis and Brooke weren't around so as you can see Sheree and Moe were just sitting back laughing as I was snapping shots!

It was a good excuse to have a party and get us girls all whose house next time?!

Just one of THOSE days...

So this morning started off with Brynnly waking up at 6am (which is a little too early for me) because I am use to my kids sleeping in late around here. Anyways, after I was up every few hours throughout the night with Chace (because he has an ear infection and has been a lil stinker lately not wanting to sleep) 6am was too early for me to function this morning. So I grabbed Brynnly a box of cereal, turned on TV in our bedroom and had her lay down next too me. Before I knew it, it was 9:00am when I opened my eyes again...with Brynnly still laying next too me eating cereal and watching TV. Although I realized that she wasn't in her pajamas anymore and had dressed herself in quite the interesting outfit, both the shirt and skirt inside out. Right when I woke up she said, "Mommy don't worry I found my bow at the park and then I went to Michael's house (her friend who lives across the street) and his mom said that he wasn't home." I thought for a moment that she was just saying that, but then I started asking her more questions and realized that all of that was probably true! I seriously was freaking out when I saw that the front door was unlocked. Because Brian ALWAYS locks it when he leaves. Well Bryce was still asleep and I had to wake him up to take him to playgroup. When I got to my friends house where playgroup was she said that she went to Bashas this morning and saw a little girl playing at the park and thought for a minute that it was Brynnly, but then said she didn't see me and knew that I was scared about letting her play over their without me so figured it was some older girl. So when she told me this, I was like Oh my Gosh, that WAS my sweet little girl over playing at the park alone this morning!!

Anyways, it really made me scared of what could have happened and when I tried talking to Brynnly about it, she told me that she looked both ways before she crossed the street and no cars were coming! Seriously. I felt like a GREAT mom today. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

Chace's Blessing Day

This past weekend Brian's parents and his oldest sister and her family came to visit from California for Chace's blessing. It was great to have them here and we were so grateful for our family members who were able to be their for Chace's blessing. I know it was a sacrfice for them to drive for such a short stay and it might have even been a bigger sacrifce to get my sisters and brothers to church for an 8:00 am sacrament meeting! Thanks fam... I sure do love ya!
Brian blessed Chace with a wonderful blessing and I am so grateful for my husband and the daddy that he is to his 3 children. Not to mention a pretty GREAT husband as well.

Tonight I realized that I lack in the imagination department...
Usually Brian puts the kids to bed everynight because it is his special time that he gets to spend with them and before bed he either tells them a story or reads a book...
But tonight we started painting our playroom and he was busy working away and I didn't want him to stop so I said that I would put the kids to bed tonight. So they came in our bed and I was trying to make up some cool story to tell Brynnly and Bryce... and I was going along (I am sure I was just getting to the good part) and Brynnly says, "Mommy I like it when daddy tells us stories, yours are kinda boring and making me fall asleep." RUDE!
So I guess Brian is honored with that duty still.
And it is 9:43pm now and both kids are still awake, I am on the internet and Brian is still painting. I stunk at my job tonight. (but when their being so cute and good I just hate to put them too bed!)
