So for my birthday this year I got a Nikon D40 camera. I've been really excited to use it and my kids have been pretty patient with me. Brylee is always a good sport because like any girl she likes the attention. Boston does well and Carter will last a minute or so. Logan however informed me he's had enough and refused to take pictures today. I told him he's allowed a bad day so I'll wait for tomorrow, and he just rolled his eyes!
Don't I have the CUTEST kids in the whole world!!! I just love taking their pictures and I know that I will enjoy these in years to come!
I can't believe Logan is already 12 years old! He wanted a dog for his birthday this year and since he's pretty responsible for his age I gave in. We got him a shih tzu/maltese mix she's really cute and he LOVES her! Here is Chloe isn't she adorable!
On Saturday he wanted to go to the Roy Aquatic Center for his birthday. Here is Bry jumping for my sister Dina.
Boston played REALLY good at the pool.
Logan going off the diving board!
Not my favorite picture of me for sure!
the crew munchin' on snacks
My mom got Logan a basketball hoop for his big day. And I have officially decided that he is spoiled rotten!
Hope you have a great day today bud. I love you so much and very much enjoy the time we spend together!!!
Today I watched my friend Brooke's little girls while she took her brand new baby to the doctor. They all swam and played so cute together. This was them chowing down some cheese sandwiches. Boston, Haylee, Brylee and Bryton Carter had his eye on their food!
Carter chowing down some snacks Crawling and getting into EVERYTHING already! He started army crawling at 6 mo. but now he means business!!!
And this week he started sitting up!!! He even can sit up from crawling by himself. I just love my Mr. Carter he's my little snuggle bug!
I can't believe how fast time goes by! Logan is going into Jr. High and is turning 12 next week. Brylee has gotten so tall and looks so grown up. Boston looks and acts SO big and is starting to talk lots better. Everyday is an adventure with these guys and my life is NEVER dull, I LOVE THEM!!!
For youth conference this year we camped at Lava Hot Springs and since I ended up being the only YW leader that could go I got to bring my family. It was a blast, this was the Olympic pool. Bry and Boston both LOVED this slide! Brylee went down it 100 times!
Then we went back to camp for some yummy hamburgers. And later Bishop insisted we head into town for some square ice cream and some shopping (he's awesome, I know). A lot of families ended up coming up with leaders and the bishopric so it ended up feeling more like a ward camp out. But I thought it was GREAT, I was in charge of all meals so it meant I had lots of helpers!
The youth chowing down!
Boston showing us he was done with his food, thanks bud!
There was a weeping willow tree that the kids would pull branches off and make crowns out of.
My girls being silly!
The kids invading Bishop Miller's trailer.
Testimony meeting around the campfire.
The next day we had a pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon then went tubing down the river! I didn't get any pictures of that but it was my favorite part. Then we came back home for a ward dinner and the youth did a "Brand New Year" performance that was honestly the best show I've ever seen! I am so PROUD of the youth in our ward they are all so talented and sweet!
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!
"If you are still in the process of raising children...be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show upon almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys, scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon & that you will-to your surprise-miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S. Monson
