Long Time, No Post

Wow! Its been a while. There is FAR too much to post to catch you up on EVERYTHING that has been going on. There are so many pictures and stories I wish I could share but I think it will just overwhelm me and anyone who might be reading. SO- Here is a "short" version of the past few months that we've missed.


Hewitt: Is reading and probably the smartest 4 year old that I know. I am proud to say that. He is very passionate about everything in life. He is amazing. I can't believe how responsible he is for a 4 year old. He listens so well to everything we say and is SO obedient. I love this about him.

Just returned from "Pirate Island"


Linford: Is very mischievous, BUT very tender. He is our little sports man. He is mostly obsessed with basketball. He is so good at it. He's been surprising us lately with alot of newer, bigger words and speaking so clearly. He is one that we are constantly keeping an eye on because he is very independent and curious.
Playing his FAVORITE game

Harper: He turned 1 year old in March! Oh, he is just getting so big, so fast. He walks, runs and thinks he is 3 years old. He now has 4 teeth on top and 2 teeth on bottom (and counting).He gets very upset when I try to help him do things, Like, "mom, I can do this by myself.....Hewitt and Linford are..." He now says, "UH-OH" and "Whoaaaa" Very cute. He is a little mess maker and I am constantly cleaning up after this one. He is kind of following in Linfords shoes as far as the mischievous thing goes.
Eating his birthday cakeThis is what he does when I tell him to, "SMILE"

Just being cute

His birthday party...waiting to blow the candle...


Needless to say, I love and adore my kids more than anything. I don't know what I would do without them.

So Brandon an I decided to embark on a new adventure. Brandon decided to join his friend and do security systems this summer. We will be in Texas till June and then Oklahoma till September. We will miss our families more than ever but we are excited too. Brandons brother Bryce said he'd watch our big doggy, thank goodness for his kindness...we will miss our Bossy so much.

We drove out to Texas on Friday and things are going great! My kids were AMAZING on the drive down here. I was a little worried and we were going to stop half way- but they hadn't made a peep so we drove the whole way. 15 hours. I am PROUD to say that ALL 3 kids (under the age of 4) were happy and quiet the entire way. I was pleasantly surprised.

So far, we have just been enjoying the hot weather and the pool. Its been great. I will try and take more pictures, and I will be posting again very soon!

I know you're probably getting tired of hearing this but, I miss you guys so much. Monday was hard, I kept waiting for the little knocks on the door and then It hit me "they aren't coming today. Love the pictures, but sad not to see Harpers new teeth. I know that's weird that seeing new teeth would be something I miss. Love you guys...

Yeah, it is about time you up-dated:). Isn't it amazing how different their little personalities are? I hope you have a great time in Texas and Oklahoma... Michael sold security systems one year and he had the time of his life! It is nice to have a little adventure once in a while and hopefully you will make a lot of money!

Your boys are so cute! I totally agree that they would be best friends with our boys if we lived close. Sounds like you guys have had some bog changes. One of my really good friends just moved to Texas so her husband could be part owner in a pest control company. What part of Texas are you guys in? I love going to new cities and having a little adventures. I have heard that Dallas is really fun. Enjoy the pools and warm weather! I can't wait for summer so we can swim every day.

Hey Ash! LOVE the pics! I am going to update tonight, hopefully! ;D Anyway, I don't know what the blogging etiquette is, but the answer to your question about my sad post is: Last Sunday we went to a friends homecoming from our 2nd ward we lived in. The bishopric asked the ward to pray for a member in the ward who had rolled his 4-wheeler in Moab and became instantly Paraplegic!!!! They were on a last boys trip before 2 of his sons were going to depart for their missions! It is amazing how life can take any unimaginable turn! =(
