The Last 6 Months In Pictures

 Ready or not...he's ready for his big boy bed!  April 2015.  (We didn't move him until August.)

 While mom's not looking...

Just riding around the house...on my scooter...with a wagon...attached to my butt.

 Best idea.  2 item toy: cars and blue painter's tape.

 Kings of the dirt hill!  The neighborhood behind us is going up and the kids (and their best friend Aiden) LOVE to climb this dirt hill!

 And a baby king of the hill for Seth!

 Her outfits make me smile every day.

Played "Where in the world will you serve your mission?" for FHE one night.  Guess who loved the game the most??

 Green smoothie monsters.

 Mommy date.  Eegee's.  Win-win.

 Professional development silliness.

 Poor sick cuddly boy.

 He's not a "path of least resistance" kind of kid.  Challenging himself with eating with his socks on.

 Homemade light sabers?  Yes, please!

 Oh the paint store...

 Again with her wonderful sense of style!

 The dogs know the BEST place to hang out.  Under a toddler who is eating, and dropping, food.

 No better way to watch TV.

 His swim floatie.  Bought it at Costco and he wore it for 3 days.

Not a cuter bum in existence.

 Conference forts.

 My handsome husband opening a container of animal crackers.  Love him.

 When the sun shines down through clouds like this, we say the "angels are shining their flashlights on us."

 Pima County Fair!


 Think he's ready for school?

 That's a big orange ball you have, my friend.

 Life of a mom.  Love it.  Wouldn't change any of it.  Not even the tough days.

 This face!

 Found the Vaseline...

 No mom, I don't want my diaper changed.  It's just fine!

 Guess what?!?!?!?!

 You can see the tractor outside in the background.  The neighbors put in a pool.  Fantastic entertainment for a little boy for HOURS!

 Prescott June 2015.

 A boy and his truck.

 Prescott June 2015.

 Prescott June 2015.

 Prescott June 2015.

 Prescott June 2015.  Ramsbottom, the squirrel.  Kids loved him.

 This boy and his trains!  He builds the most amazing tracks!

 This pool was our best purchase this summer.

 Another fantastic train track!

 And another...

Boys helping mom do Prenatal Yoga.  Their form is much better than mine!

 Someone got baptized.  Erin taking her pictures at the temple.

 Getaway to Denver for the weekend.  June 2015.

 Lost a tooth while we were in Denver.  I had been working on that sucker for 2 weeks!  And he loses it while I am out of town?? Classic.

 Sariah writes the most amazing stories, prints them, and illustrates them.  This girl's brain is wonderful.

 Where's Seth??

 Why is it that the guest room TV is so enticing?

 Climbed...and then got stuck.


 Fireworks...from the safety of the couch inside.  July 4, 2015.

 Sticky lizards.  Throw them on the ceiling provides hours of plotting and experimenting with how to get them down...

 Seth fell off the top of the bunk beds and caught the dresser on the way down.  Angels hung on to him that day, I am convinced.

 There's more than one way to take a drink...

 Garbage truck junkies.

 While I was working, he climbed out of his crib, grabbed the kindle, climbed back into his crib, and started a show.  I had no clue.  Sneaky sneaky.

 Again with the bum!  At least he's watering my plants!

 Licking the paddle is the best part...

 Superhero James!

 He'll carry things around in his shirt all day.  Stuffing blocks in there is always a good idea...


 Sometimes, this is the only way a mom can cook dinner.  A snack and a show does wonders!

 Major monsoon storm.  Lifted our trampoline into the vacant lot next to us.  No one was hurt, our wall is mostly in tact, and we salvaged the trampoline!  August, 2015.

 "At dawn, WE RIDE!"

 Sometimes, the only thing he wants to do is peel an orange...

 Crazy kids...

 Sariah stole my grocery list and added a few things of her own...

 A bolt of lightning struck the hill a couple miles from our house and caused a fire.  We went to go look at the flames.

 Sariah dreams of being a teacher.  On this day, she asked me to teach her how to write an objective.  They are in orange and green on the wall.  Love her.

 Monkeys at the playground!  Love them!

 When it's too quiet...always check the bag of dog food.  You are almost certain to find your toddler there.

Happy 36th to this handsome guy!
