West Haven's Baby Contest

We entered Carter in West Haven's baby contest this weekend like we have done with all of our kids. He won "cutest eyes" and I agree! When we got home Brylee insisted we put him in Boston's crown he got when he won baby king 2 years ago. This is Boston 2 years ago when he won his age group as king!

They take pictures and of all the babies too. This is Carter's cute picture!

And this is Boston's.

I couldn't find Brylee's pictures but she won "sleepiest baby" because she was asleep through the whole contest! She was only 2 mo. old though!

Father's day fishing trip

Saturday Ben went fishing with his Dad and brother Nick up to the Deseret ponds. I know he had a ton of fun. He deserved to have a day to himself, he really works so hard for our family. And I was thankful he got to do something fun on Father's day weekend that I didn't have to think of........so thank you Kel!
I would also like to say that I am VERY thankful for all of the Father's in my life. First, my husband for being the best Father to our children and who is a great provider to our family. Second, to my Dad he is a hard worker and has a huge heart both of which he's instilled into me. Lastly my Father-in-law Kel, he always thinks of others and is such a great example us.

Three little monkeys......

jumping on the bed. The kids just LOVE jumping on Logan's bed. He gets really annoyed which I think is part of their fun! Carter LOVES jumping in his rain forest jumperoo!! He gets going so hard and then he laughs at himself it's really cute!

Boston's latest obsession is to take all of this to bed with him for naps and bedtime! EVERYTIME he has to gather all of this up and try to carry it all the way to his room, it's quite hilarious! And in case you were wondering that's a lion, moose, deer and his blankie

5 years ago today.......

Ben you're the BEST thing that ever happened to me. Sometimes I wonder if everyone else feels this way, I didn't know that it was possible to be so HAPPY. We make a great team and although we both have our stubborn moments I know that this is FOREVER!

I LOVE you honey! Happy Anniversary!

Logan's Baseball

Logan is pitching again this year, he is doing a really good job. He throws the ball really fast!!! Here is a sequence of pictures of him throwing a ball.

I just loves these picture's you can see in his face that he puts SO much effort into every pitch!

I even got a picture of him hitting a ground ball. Good job bud!

Carter's birth story ( 6 mo. late!)

I've never posted Carter's birth story and because I use this blog mostly for a journal I am going to post it now. So if you've heard it already just past this post by!

Labor started with Carter the night of the 13th, I had to go get Ben from the airport. He was flying home from working in Vegas. On the way down I was having regular contractions about every 7-8 min. They weren't getting worse but were consistent. We didn't get home until 11pm and even though I was pretty sure I was in labor I didn't want to get a babysitter that late at night. I figured if it got more intense it would wake me up and we would figure something out at that point. Well I ended up making it through the night and they were still consistent but not horrible. So we packed the kids bags and took them up to my sister Shauna's house. We went to eat at Bajio's for final meal and then walked vigorously around the hospital walkway to get them closer so they would keep me. When we got up to the hospital around 1:30pm I was dilated to a 4 and 80% effaced. I was 20 days early but I had Brylee and Boston 19 days early so the doctor decided to started me on pitocin. We got all set up in the room around 3pm and waited. Ben gave me a really special blessing and we could both feel the spirit there. Then we got to enjoy our pretty view and sunshine from our room. It always takes me a little bit to get past a 4 but when I go I go. They checked me at 6:45 and I was at a 5 so they were going to put in a cervical thing to check my contractions that way to see why I wasn't progressing. So they went to get it and 15 min later I was a 10! Crazy huh the nurse didn't believe it so she checked me too! I told you I go fast! By the time the doctor got there the baby started to have some stress so I started pushing and he came out after 5 pushes with the cord wrapped around his neck twice. That was why he was under stress and it REALLY scared us! While I was pushing it was pretty intense because everyone was really quite and were watching the monitors for stress. But I was SO glad to see my little boy healthy! He weighed 7lbs 8 0z and was 20 1/2 in long. He's 6 months now and I can't imagine not having him I love him so much!

My last Scentsy order!

I am putting together a final order. Sells have been slow because of the economy and I just keep up with my busy family. So this will be my last order. Let me know ASAP if you need anything. And a special THANK YOU to all of you who have kept me going for almost 2 years!!!

*This month they have a really cute LIBERTY warmer at $27 if you are feeling patriotic! And the scent of the month is Coconut Palm at 10% off.*
