Thankful Day 1

I wanted to go over some things I am so grateful for this month in preparation for Thanksgiving!
I am so grateful for my wonderful husband, I have love being married to this man! He is such a hard worker and wonderful father. This past week he took his test to get his stamp to become a Professional Engineer! It has been a long time coming, and I am so glad it is over. Now we just have to wait for the results to come back in a few months, ugh! 
A week before his test he was able to go hunting and shoot a nice three point deer. I am glad he is such a good hunter and can teach my children this skill. 
Tyson is working at Roof Top Anchor and Park Engineering. I am grateful for all his skills and example of hard work. 
I love you Honey!

June 2011

 It finally started to warm up in June and it was so pretty outside! We have a stray cat in the neighborhood that I love because she is always catching mice. One day a dog had chased her up a tree and the boys spent a long time trying to get her to come down. It was cute how much they wanted to save her! I finally went out and helped them get her with a long pipe. I really think she was stuck after being up there so long!
 Nathan received his mission call to Eugene Organ! I can't believe he is gone for two years! 
 On my birthday Tyson took me to the Temple and to Olive Garden. I haven't been to Olive Garden in a long time and was very impressed! Jeanette was wonderful and watched the kids, she also helped them make me cookies!
We had a ward water party in June, It was a lot of fun! At the end after almost everyone went home Jeanette and I decided to get crazy and have a race down the water tunnel thing. I guess word got out about my craziness, because people were teasing me about it the next day!

May 2011

 Having fun!
 Daddy went out of town this week. Jeanette brought over a box spring mattress for us to store for her, and Isaac thought he could help her bring it inside. I herd the wind pickup right as he went outside and herd him hit the pavement under the mattress. We joke that the mattress won the fight!
 Some days bedtime is my favorite time of day! This day was one of them!!

spending Sunday afternoon outside in the sun! I love our backyard! 
 I love the views on my drive to get Isaac from school, in the spring all the fields were covered in daises!
 Ethan learned to ride his bick in the spring, I think Isaac was the teacher! It seemed to happen overnight!
 We decided it was time to get a van. The Pathfinder was nice, but with four little kids, I needed a more mommy friendly car. We ended up getting a Chrysler Town and country and I am so happy with all the room and how easy it is to get the kids in and out!
Ethan loved helping Daddy get the car ready to sell and look the camera inside to take pictures of his toy truck!
 Kids getting so big!
 Isaac's kindergarten class graduation! We love his teacher Ms Brook!
 Going out to lunch at the Hub after graduation. He made his shirt at school!

We went to Thomas the Train in May with our friends Jill, Gage and Gentry. Ethan and Gage met in March and loved playing with each other. They had gone to Lagoon the next week after this and Ethan had the time of his life! I am so glad he was able to have so much fun with Gage and make so many memories. On Fathers Day, Jill's family was in a horrible car crash and little Gage lost his life. His Mommy and Daddy were in really bad condition and little Gentry was fine. It has been a hard past few months for Gage's family and we pray that they can find peace at this time. Ethan is sad his friend is gone and asks about him often, they played so well together and understood each other so well. We miss you Gage!

April 2011

It sure as been a could year, I wondered if it would ever stop snowing. Alayna and Olivia loved to look out the window at the snow falling, now I think they like being outside in the nice weather better then the snow!

 Isaac and Ethan have been helping out with the girls a lot more lately. They pick them up and drag them back to me when they know the girls are doing something wrong. The boys also like to make the girls laugh! Isaac loves to feed them and help them take baths, he is a great hair washer!
 This year the Easter Bunny prepared early for Easter. But forgot all about when Easter was because he was to tired from partying the night before. Lucky he remembered at 5 am. that is why there is only one picture of Easter, and why I don't care that Ethan is in his undies! 

We went to Rachel's house to have lunch and cake for Grandmas birthday. It is quite crazy when we have all the kids together! Rachel put fish crackers on her coffee table for both sets of twins. It was so cute to see them all gobble the fishes in delight!

Girls walking!

Olivia decided to surprised  us one day and started walking between my friends Tiana and Marie. They had both come over late one night and we ended up making blankets for Tianas sister. Olivia loved the fabric she had and walked to her to get it, she is such a soft blanket girl! It took a few more weeks to get the walking thing down, but finally was on her way at the end of April. 
Alayna was not as interested in walking as Olivia,and didn't think showing off for the camera was her thing! It took her till the end of May to get her feet under her and start walking. I finally got this video of her before she could catch me. She would always sit down and pretend she wasn't doing anything if we said anything about her walking! 
Now not only do they walk, they run! They love to run out the door as soon as the boys open it and if I am distracted they are at the park by the time I can get to them, they love being so big!

March 2011 And The Girls are One!!!

 I typed this back in March and have been going like crazy, it is time to catch up!
The girls turned one on Thursday. Daddy had been out of town for a few days and got home just in time for the girls to have fast lasagna and little cup cakes! The Owens had come over and gave them a xylophone, It is one of there favorite things to play with when they go visit Miss Olivia and Carolyn, so they thought the girls needed one!  The girls loved their cake and got it everywhere, it was verry cute! After cake, Mommy went over to the church for the Relief Society Birthday Party for a little get away that was needed! Daddy put the boys to bed and gave the girls a bath. After he took Olivia out and put her diaper on he went back and Alayna had pooped in the tub and was eating one of the floating logs!! Oh Daddy had a lot of fun cleaning that out of her mouth, EEEWWWW!!!
The Sunday after their birthday we had the big family birthday at our house. We had sweet pork and Rachel made the girls little pink cakes with birthday duckies swimming on teething rings, it was so cute! The rest of us had pink cupcakes, Grandma and Grandpa Munson and Berg came Grandma Vickie, Grandpa Ed, Rachel's family, Allen, Heather, Brady, Caitlyn, Chandler, Nathan, Jeremiah, all came to wish them Happy Birthday! Thank you everyone for making it a special day and for all the fun presents!
Opening the present that the Owens got them! Tyler her brother Braden had been over to watch the kids while I ran to the store, so Tyler helped a little! 

The Owens stayed and sang Happy Birthday, we all gad fun blowing out candles and eating cake!

So good!

Grandma and Grandpa Lindshild has sent up dresses and toys!

 On Sunday we had the rest of our family come over to celebrate. Before they got here we some how ended up on the stairs playing. I think Olivia was asleep and we were just having fun!
 I don't know why we did this, I think we were deciding what collars the girls eyes were and we all took pictures of our eyes to compare. I think we were only missing Olivia. I need to remember to get one of her!
Everyone had a lot of fun and we ate a lot of sweet pork and chicken!
The girls were not so sure of the present unwrapping thing!

Rachel's twins Finn and Fritz and my little thumb sucker Olivia!

Aunt Rachel made the girls such pretty little cakes! And they tasted so good Alayna kept sticking her face in it!!

More pictures of us playing on the stairs, Alayna is wearing Uncle Claysons hat.

February 2011

Ethan loves to take pictures. I love it when he does, he can get the most interesting shots!
Isaac is such a big help, he loves to feed his sisters and help with them when he isn't "to busy"!
Bath time is a big deal around our house. When we were building we thought a big deep tub would be nice, it is more like the kids swimming pool!
I love these pictures I snapped of our wonderful Daddy and Alayna . He always takes time to do things with the kids one on one. No wonder they always want to be with him!
More bath time! I the girls are begging to get in and the boys are having a spitting war (ugh!) Do you like the action photo!
Mix of picture I want to remember! The kids are all over Daddy when he is home, Isaac is pretending to be him! I love to snuggle my babies! Bran made a lot of furniture this winter, I took a picture of how dusty he gets when he is sanding!
Having fun with the kids while Daddy was out of town. Can you tell how crazy they get!

 All done! Everyone was so tired! 

I love weddings and I think my family can pull off the best weddings ever! Brady and Vanessa did a wonderful job and worked hard to put there wedding together and we help them celebrate by partying the night away!

In January we finally got over being sick, then the girls started teething! So I was still not getting any sleep. Ugh! Olivia now has 3 teeth and Alayna has 2 I cant believe they are getting so big! Isaac is having fun skiing, he like it when he gets to use polls the most. I think he likes going faster. Their class is getting ready for the school Olympics. They get to be the country of China so we are making fried rice on Monday for the event!
The local rec center has a kids play time so Ethan and I went over to play with friends a few times in January. It is a lot of fun to be able to play on the fields of fake grass until we get the real stuff!

 Daddy having fun with Isaac, Ethan and Olivia

 Alayna is my sugar and Olivia is my spice!
 Smily Girls! Olivia learned how to crawl the week of Christmas, Alayna learned to crawl the week of 
New Years!

 What I see when I look down, little girls coming after me!
 Olivia Loves to stay up after all the kids and party! She also loves to "help" me with the laundry and dishes. I can't keep her away when I am cleaning!
 Alayna loves water, she loves to get in the bathtub! I think she would stay in there forever!

 The boys had fun at their cousin Riley's Birthday Party!
