For a YW/YM combined activity we did baptism's for the dead and afterwards went tubing on Trapper Peak pass. Since it was on a Saturday I figured I could invite the family! It was SOOO much fun! The kids all had a great time and they didn't even whine once it was really nice. I think we needed an outing like this, for sure!
Even me and Logan went on a snugly ride together!
Okay so this video is hilarious! You have to watch it, it's of Ben and Logan and it should make you laugh. And don't worry they're not hurt. They just got the wind knocked out of them. (Ben was wondering why I was giggling before they even crashed though!)
Sleeping children have taken over my bed! For the past month I have woke up, on occasion, in a kid sandwich! Not much sleep goes on after that. When Ben goes to work and sometimes before, the Brylee and Boston have started getting in bed with me. OK I will have to admit this has always been a bad habit for Brylee but, Boston has NEVER gotten into our bed! And luckily Carter has been sleeping 9 hours at night, hooray! So I don't know what is going on. But I have just come to accept the fact that I may never get a full nights sleep thanks to one or more of my crazy kiddo's!
Happy birthday Trisha! I just want to tell you how much I love you, you're the best. You are what keeps this family going. Trisha thank you for every thing you do for me and the family.. You are the best thing that happened to me thank you for everything.......
This picture I thought was cute! They all look so stinkin' cute and Logan is such a handsome boy! Carter's first bath in the BIG boy tub!! Isn't he just adorable! (I AM prejudice though) Boston fell asleep like this on Saturday. Me and Ben went to an afternoon movie for V-day and my Mom watched the kids so they didn't get their nap. So right before we got home he crashed on the couch and man, was he out!
Brylee got to have her teeth cleaned today. She got to wear earphones and watch T.V. on the ceiling. She was really excited before hand, but I of course know how shy she is so I was a little worried. After some convincing from Mom she FINALLY opened her mouth! Yeah! After that she was great for the Dr. and hygienist.
She was a really good girl and I am very proud of her!
This may seem like a way long post for a teeth cleaning but this is a huge
obstacle for Bry to overcome. She has really bad anxiety when it comes to anybody and anything new. I am SOO very proud of her for being such a big girl!
She got a special Cinderella toothbrush, oh and NO cavities! But I had one, bummer!
Our FHE last night was about love. So earlier for the treat we made some yummy sugar cookies. Brylee and Boston were great helpers and had a lot of fun! I had to watch Boston closely because he kept wanting to eat everything. But he actually did really good at everything we did. Brylee of course did everything just right, she is such a perfectionist! They are all growing up so fast, I can't believe it!
Brylee lately has been dressing up Boston in girl clothes or anything girly she can find! I think she REALLY needs a sister! These are my earrings and he wanted to put them on, so I looped them over the top of his ear for fun and he wore them around for almost a half an hour! Every time I tried to take them off he would get mad (weird right)! Brylee dresses him up in her jammies and calls him her little sister Kaylie. He just loves the attention so he goes along with it.
Look at Bry she's so proud of herself! I think it's funny, I shouldn't worry right?
On Saturday we went to Chuck E. Cheese's for Elijah's birthday party! It was SOOO much fun for the kids. They had a BLAST! Boston was infatuated with Chuck E. it was cute. Logan had so much fun playing all of the games. He ended up getting like 700 tickets and we didn't even use all of our tokens.
Boston chased Chuck E. all around as he was dancing and performing until it was time for a picture and then he got all shy.
Happy 4th birthday Elijah and thank you for inviting us it was so much fun!
Boston's messy mug.
Brylee got so excited for this horse. It was her favorite thing to do there.
We will for sure go back soon . It really brought back a lot of childhood memories for me and Ben. We both had birthday parties at the old one as kids.
This video is of Boston dancing (or what he thinks it dancing). The blue screen is where they could be on the t.v.'s He could see himself and he enjoyed it very much. He was a ham as usual!
We're Ben and Trisha we were married June 16, 2004. We have 5 wonderful children, Logan, Brylee, Boston, Carter and Brendan. Ben works for his Dad as a Plumber and I get the joy of being a stay-at-home Mom. So welcome to our blog, I hope you enjoy a little peak into our crazy life!

Monson
