Finally, an updated picture of our entire family! The last one was a year and a half ago...yikes!
The kids are changing so much and getting tons bigger! Last Sunday the kids were being silly so I snapped some pictures of them. Even Chewy joined in the fun!
Brylee has gotten so big lately. She got her hair cut into an a-line and I love it! She's been doing awesome in school and is reading books really good now, she's memorized poems, learned all about money and has become a word-find addict! Last week for her homework she actually wrote her first book, good job Bry!
Boston and his cute smile. He has by far the biggest imagination of any the kids, maybe he'll write books or something! He has been learning lots too. He knows he's entire alpahabet, their sounds and all about money thanks to Bry's homework! Boston is as excited as ever to go to Teacher Vicki's next year for preschool!
My little Carter monster has grown up way to much lately. He's talking lots more now and is finally getting to the age were he's listening a little better! He is still a HUGE mama's boy, it doesn't bother me at all in fact I would be perfectly happy for him to be a baby forever!!!
This semester Logan has been taking guitar. So ever other weekend I get to hear him play, which I LOVE! He's getting better every time I hear him too! I can't wait until he's able to play me an entire song, way to go Logan keep practicing!!!
Last week Carter had this thing were he didn't want to sleep in his bed. He got over it thank goodness. Kitchen island must of looked awful comfy?! This is how we found him one morning. He climbed up to the top bunk with Boston, too cute!
When Ben was gone goose hunting in Colorado in January I started these chalkboards for the kids room. Last weekend Ben got around to framing them, yeah!! And he even fixed our broken tiles (they've been broke for 3 yrs. I might add, which only adds to my excitement) in the kitchen...HOORAY! The kids love them and play school just about everyday!
This is a picture from our "New Beginnings" activity last Thursday. It was one of the funnest, for sure! It was sports themed, the girls did cute cheers, we played a fun game and had a super cute snack stand. We definitely went out with a bang because...last Sunday the Young Women's presidency got released! I have absolutely loved being a part of the Young Women's organization! It was a super sad day, it was the hardest I've ever cried in front of that many people in my life but I just couldn't seem to pull myself together!!! I will truly miss EVERY SINGLE THING about this calling. And to be honest, I'm just not ready to let go yet. We were SUCH a close group...as Breanna put it we went together like peanut butter and jelly! I love these girls and leaders so much (yes, I know I'm not moving across country!) but it is such a busy calling and we really did spend tons of time together. I am so thankful for the opportunity Heavenly Father gave me to be a part of this great group for three years. *And hopefully this feeling of being lost will go away soon!
Yesterday Ben took Boston to meet the Jazz players. Here is Boston, Memet Okur and A.K. What a hoot they are...I love this picture!!! Al Jefferson, Ben said he's really friendly and personable. He also got the coach to sign a basketball card he had of him when he played for the Jazz in 94'. Coach Corbin stared at the picture for a long time, laughed and said, "Man, I'm all knees in this picture I don't think I could run like that anymore!" It was kind of special Ben said he talked to him just like anybody else...I already like him!
This is the Jazz's new player they traded Deron Williams for, I think it's Favors or Harris...not sure!
Raja Bell and not sure!
Well these two had a grand ole' time! They were both gleaming from ear to ear when they got home!!! Ben gave me a play by play of the entire evening too...whew. I'm sure glad my boys had awesome time though!!
Last Saturday my sister's took me out to lunch for my birthday. We had a yummy lunch at the Greenery at Rainbow Garden's then we went shopping. It was a fabulous day...I honestly could do that every Saturday for the rest of my life..ha, ha!!! Thanks Shauna and Mikka for making my birthday extra special this year! I love you both!!!
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
