This is serious.... Good thing I don't blog for a living. I knew I would be like this, but I didn't think I would be this bad. I haven't even made a post in 4 months. My life has been so crazy I haven't had any time. Sad that that isn't an excuse.. its the honest truth. Here are some highlights of the pasts months, where I have remembered the camera. Hopefully I will do better at keeping this updated, seeing as I don't ever write in a journal.




K so you really can't even tell that she just got her ears pierced cause her cute chubby cheeks are in the way. But that is what we are looking at here. I don't know why I waited so long to do this. Madi was 5 months when we did hers and Tae was 9 months. We waited till Landri was almost 11 months. We had them do both ears at he same time and she cried for about .5 seconds then had the succer and was good to go.

Doesn't even know what just happened!....

Superbowl Sunday!!!

We went over to Morby's for the Superbowl. The guys spent half of the game trying to light the barbeque, bound and determined to get that thing working. Amy and I should have gone out there, I am sure we would've got it going.... There was never success but the food was great! We all had such a fun time, watching Amy get a stomach ulcer, Yale scaring Nash as he yelled at the tv and the girls covering their eyes and pacing the floors getting worked up wondering if their Steelers would actually pull it off. We were cheering for the Cardinals but really didn't care who won. Definately was a great game to watch!, and great friends to watch it with. Thanks Morby's for having us over. Our kids love us getting together and can't wait till we do it again.

Aren't they all so cute! Best part, they all get along so well together.

Nash and Landri... Isn't he so adorable!!!... I just love him!

Gotta love it!!!


Landri is 10 months, and by far is my pickiest eater! I cannot for the life of me get her to like or even eat vegetables. With the way they taste, I really dont blame her. She really doesnt like anything except baby cereal and fruit. I decided to try making my own so it didn't taste like baby food. This was my end result! I even tried giving her what was on my plate and she is either choking on it or spitting it out. Although... the other day I let her try my beef enchiladas and she loved them!

Doing whatever he can to get her to give him kisses. Landri has been such a fun and mellow baby. We all love doing whatever we can to get her to laugh or give us kisses. She loves her dad so much! Most of the time she would rather go to Steve than me; and gets so excited to see him whenever he walks through the door. We are so grateful to have her. She gave us quite a scare a bit ago, we spent a Saturday in the ER thinking she had swallowed a penny, or a barbie shoe or something. I was cleaning out Tae's closet and had Landri sitting next to me on the floor. I had picked up all the little stuff around me, but Luke kept pulling things out of a little craft drawer that was sitting there. All the sudden she starts choking, and Luke is saying "she swallowed a penny mom"! I picked her up and flipped her over and hit her on the back, and that didn't work, did it again, still didnt' work. She couldn't breathe and kept choking, (all my kids have choked on something but this was lasting a long time, and with the others, I've always been able to get them to stop) I kept hitting her on the back and holding her tilted down but it was not working. I finally swooped my finger in through her throat cause I didn't know what else to do and I started running down our stairs. My other kids are freaking out crying, asking if they should call 911 I didn't know what to do. I seriously thought my baby was going to die right their in my arms. About half way down the stairs she starting crying and breathing again. She cried for a few minutes and then acted fine, but we took her in to see if thet could see anything. Some doctors were telling us if she does have a penny in her and its turned wrong it could cause problems. They did an x-ray and couldn't see anything. Don't know what she was choking on, and I guess I never will. And I dont think I have ever been so scared in my life as I was in those few moments. I would die if anything happened to any of my family. They are everything to me. Landri has been so special to all of us and we are so thankful for her. She definately completes our family.

The Fashion Show!?!

Madi and Lainee decide to have a little fashion show while Taeler is at Ellas's for a late night. My poor little Lukey.... growing up in a house of girls. Of course he wants to be a part of the show! Madi and Lainee do his hair and he dresses himself , looks great! The other day he asked if next time could he do the makeup?!.. At least he loves baseball, basketball, football, trucks, fourwheelers and playing in the mud.

Christmas Morning!

All Luke talked about getting for Christmas was a blue guitar. He can play a mean air guitar, one that gets so out of hand he about gets knocked out by the wall or whatever is close by. Finally he gets his long awaited guitar. Too bad Santa didn't give him one that had reinforced strings. He got a little out of hand and that was the end of the blue guitar. Lasted real long.

Landri's first Christmas. Of course she just loved playing with all the boxes and wrapping paper, oh!, and the candy canes.

What great buddies they will be......

Landri 9 months

My baby is nine months here. She is getting so big, so fast. It makes me so sad.... She is just learning to stand up against things. Still is not crawling. Kind of attempting but thats ok. She is my last, and can stay that way for as long as she wants. Keep life a little less hectic.

Wherever Landri is, there is my little Tae, right beside her. If she is not holding her, she is playing with her trying to make her laugh or singing to her. She has been our little mother since the day Landri was born. She is always such a big help with her and actually with everything. Whenever I ask Tae for help, she is right there to do it especially if it has anything to do with Landri. I am so thankful for her and all that she does for me everyday. She is wonderful!

Its Snowing!!!

It snowed, in ST. GEORGE!!!, and stuck!!! My kids thought this was the greatest thing in the world. I love it when it snows here. I just love the snow, but would honestly hate to live somewhere where it snowed all the time. I would be dead if I did cause I can't drive in it. How fun it is to once in a while have it snow; but in all my life, I don't ever remember it snowing this much, at one time, here in St. George. Surpised my girls didn't think to make snow cones and sell them on the corner. (They would honestly try to do something like that).

There we are. Our entire family, including our dog Maddux that we haven't had for 3 years....

Best Friends!!!
