This is why one should just finish the blog post while the memory is fresh... I can't remember what Preston's miracles were...I'm going to cry...

Sophie's 11th Birthday Party- Hawaiian Luau

Sophie sure knows how to throw a party! She had quite the party planned... And she filled all 5 hours. Games, food, movies, cool decorations, delicious food. I think all who came enjoyed it!

Happy Birthday Sophie!!

Birthday Charm Bracelet

After a little deliberating, we decided to grant Sophie her wish and get her a James Avery Charm Bracelet... I realized I only have one daughter... I need to embrace these sweet moments with a daughter, enjoying something girly and fun.

New Orleans-Doug's work trip

Loving Life!

Sleep? Who needs it?

Took this gem at 11:06 at night... But with a smile like that? It's hard to hold it against him. Oh, and side note, he is not giving up on his bassinet. Tried to move him to the crib... Utter disaster! We tried it, and would not settle.  Finally moved him to bassinet, he rolled over, snuggled down, closed his eyes and drifted right off.

Sitting Up

First Day of School

And they are off!

First Day of Preschool

Off to preschool!  When I picked Ethan up he asked me, "Do I come back here tomorrow?"  When I answered affirmatively, he said, "Oh good." So happy he loved it!

Now I need to add a picture of Luke's crocodile tears when he has to leave, and Ethan and Jett get to stay... Luke crying, "I go to school?"  It was a hard day, with him asking where everyone was.  He just doesn't understand why he doesn't get to go to school too. 

Llama Llama books... Mama Mama you came back!

Luke loves the book "Llama Llama goes to school." In it- little llama yells "mamma mamma you came back!" When his mom comes to pick him up. Luke yells that with great enthusiasm and excitement whenever I return from any where. It warms my heart.

My L

Thanks to star fall, Luke is learning his letters- every time he sees the letter L, he gets so excited and yells out- "my L! See it- it's my L!!!"

Activity Days-

I love working with Jennifer.  She has taught me a lot about looking ahead, planning, and avoiding procrastination.  She makes fun things happen. We stick to the schedule. I wish I had worked with her before I was in Young Womens... things might have gone  a little better at times.  Live and learn... and hopefully apply that lesson to my life now with my family and with future callings.
