June June June

We have been busy lately. May flew by with mothers day and graduation of my brother Kendall and tons of other things. WE started off June with a birthday party for Eden. I will upload pic of that from my phone later. Eden started swim lesson on her birthday as well with Kyria. We went to my cousin Laura's and we switched off taking the girls to lesson and watching the boys. It worked out great. The girls loved the lessons and learned some good skills. We enjoyed hanging out the past 2 weeks.
We also got a swim pass to all the mesa pools and have gone at least 3 times a week. The kids LOVE going to the pool and ask every day. Some days just don't work out. We are all getting pretty tan and loving the chance to cool off.

This is a picture we took on Mother's Day. Thought we needed a little update on the kids. Jay also "grew" his hair out a little. I say that cause he has always had it way short so this was a big deal to him. I love it

These are pics of a date Jay and I went on in the desert. It was so much fun and we set up the camera and took some of just us. Its been a while since we have done that.

I would go anywhere with this guy. He is definitely my best friend. I love him to pieces. Thanks for sharing this great adventure with me!

Kason and Treyden are 2!!!!

They had a great birthday. We made chocolate chip pancakes for them and then we went to the park. They rode their new plasma cars down the hill and all around and had a blast. Then we went to Firehouse subs for lunch with my sister and mom and Grandparents. They loved it and got their fire hats. Nap time. Got ready for a party. Then we had cousins and friends over for a CARS party. We had hot dogs and rice crispy treats and played fun games. They had a good time. Can't believe its already 2 years since I had them. Time flies. I love Kasons fun loving personality. He is very curious, loves to play in the water, give hugs, and he sings all the time. Treyden has a cute low voice, loves to give hugs, wrestle, be outside and make messes with his brother.They both have their own unique struts around the house that crack me up.  They do almost everything together. Sure love you Kason! Love you Treyden! Glad I had you both at the same time, it sure makes life interesting!
     Today was a crazy day. Here is s little snippet of my day and craziness of two little boys: I am on the computer uploading videos of birthday etc. Both boys are in the kitchen, pull oven the fridge, and start taking things out. Suddenly I hear glass and run in to see what happened. Jelly cracked and salsa leaked. SO I push them out of the kitchen and start the clean up. As I am doing so 2 little boys rush to the computer and start messing with it. WE just got a new computer and they have been known to tear off the keys of our old one if we happened to leave it in their reach( which I just did since I rushed in the save them from shattered glass). I rushed back in their and saved the computer and then they got locked in their room for a few minutes til I could finish. They cried for like 2 seconds. After I am done my V. T. show up and I go to retrieve the boys. I find them playing under their cribs and Kason is naked. Took off his diaper and thought he was funny. That's just by 9 a.m. This is got to be good for some fun memories later on! Hope someone got a laugh out of that!
     They have also been taking their diapers off at nap time and laughing at each other. I thought it was funny at first and I took a pic, didn't post it online though afraid I might get in trouble. Now they get a little spank if they do cause Treyden pooped in his bed the other day after this little routine. Oh the joys! Have a Happy Tuesday!

Its been way too long so here is an overload of pics and whats been going on.

We just recently had a great Easter weekend full of good food,family and egg hunts. they kids loved it.We also went to the Easter Pageant which they also loved.

Jay took Eden to the zoo for a date and I took the boys to the Temple and to story time at the library.

Jay's birthday was a lot of fun. We went to eat at Liberty market and Firehouse Subs and I took him to a Rattlers game which was a lot of fun. I enjoyed being with him and football was exciting.

 We went and did sealings in the Gilbert Temple. its so beautiful. The night was gorgeous and i just loved being there. We saw people we knew and got some froyo after. so yummy.
  wWe also went to a play that my brother kendall is in. He was a dancer in Hello Dolly. He did an awesome job and I loved watching him.

Forgot to put these up from Christmas time. We went to Bass Pro Shop and the kids had fun looking at animals and riding the carousel. I think the have a need for speed too :)

                                                                    Jay and his boys:) Love it

                                                          They loved this kid dune buggy


Happy Valentines Day!!!

Better late than never. my camera wouldn't let me upload on V-Day so we are doing it today:) Hope you enjoy.The kids did pretty ggod in these, although Kason was tired and looked a little grumpy. But we had fun. WE made pink pancakes, watched my brother Kendall do flips and dance in Mesa High's "Bun Buns", which is basically a bunch of boys acting like cheerleaders and throwing each other in the air, dancing, etc. then we went to Kristina McCray's and made hearts and cupcakes with her and Sara Reynolds and Celeste Johnson. We did a few errands and made chocolate covered strawberries. I made Jay and us Brazilian BBQ and Brazilian Lemonade. We played and watched the stars and moon in the back of our truck and enjoyed time together. I made Jay a fun scavenger hunt after the kids were in bed and we had a great time. Love you all. So grateful for our good friends and family!

           Happy December!  I bet its getting really cold there. It dropped quite a few degrees here and rained this week. I had a great birthday and Jay gave me a shopping spree, so Audrey helped me find a bunch of cute clothes.I got a great  Mom got me some Nikkan insoles to try out so i am excited for that. I am so grateful for family, that they are close by and that they are my best friends. Alisha had a beautiful reception and looks so happy. Great week!
Dec 16th
           Here at our house we just keep rollin and rollin. Here is a cute occurrence at our house that happens at least daily the boys will be playing and get jealous of the toys the other one and then the one that had the toy gets mad and hits his brother, when this happens then the one that gets hit gets sad and says hugs and they hug and make up its hilarious. The other day we were wondering how much the kids have grown in the last four months since we last measured them and all three have grown at least an inch and they are going through clothes like it nobodys business. We are looking forward to Christmas time and all there is to do at that time we went to the lights at the temple the other day and it is fun to be there and see the beauty of that place. We are excited for the new Gilbert temple to be dedicated and if anyone is coming for that you can crash at our house we would love to have you. That is about all we have for now just enjoying life and making the most of what we have It is a Wonderful Life.
Dec 22nd
      Well this week we have been enjoying each other and seeing Christmas lgihts, the Temple, Christian Dance with Breanna and Kendall and good 'ol Christmas movies.
     Sometimes its easy to get wrapped up the commercial aspects of things. We just have to re-focus each day and make what matters most count. Christ needs to be the center of our lives every day, not just at Christmas time. I was thinking the other day why Christmas seems magical and why it feels so different if I am already trying to make Christ the center of my life every other day. I realized that I think its because most of the world starts to feel that way too, but it doesn't last. People are a little nicer, serve more, give gifts, smile more during December and then the rest of the year it goes away. But for one  month everyone is more united and everyone celebrates Christ, even if they don't completely realize it.
      I am so grateful for my savior. I love Him. I watched some really good little video clips from I will link them if you can watch those. Anyway, each year I reevaluate my heart and how much I really gave to Him. I can always do more, be kinder, more giving, find more ways to serve. That's the goal. To strive each day to do as He would and Give Him our hearts.
       Jay-The week is already here it is crazy to think that already this week is Christmas when I was a kid it seemed like it would take forever and never get here this is already t-minus two days. We are ready for it though we have all our shopping done and Eden knows I think all of her gifts so that is a bummer but we told her to still act surprised. We have been able to watch a couple of good Christmas movies the usual ones Elf, White Christmas, last night we watched the Polar Express so I still want to watch Its a Wonderful Life and we will be good. We have gone to the temple to see the lights a couple of times so that has been fun. Yesterday at Breakfast Eden asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I said happiness, she said that is not a gift something like a soccer ball (that is what she wants) and then I said well is that the reason for Christmas is just to get presents? and she didnt really know what to say and so I talked to her about the celebration of Jesus birth and that is why we are celebrating this season and also the gift of His life. I just thought that was a cool little teaching opportunity that we had. We have been reading all month the passages in the New Testament about the birth of Christ and so she has been hearing about it all month.

      We dressedt the kids up in their new outfits today. They love singing at church and during one song both the boys were leaving the music and belting out the song even though they didn't know how to sing it. Eden is very excited for sending she gets to start that class next week. We are going to have a party with Laura and her kids and Dan for New Years Eve Eve . So that should be fun. I love you a whole bunch! Have a great week. here are pictures of the kids in their Sunday best, sporting their jammies, Eden getting hurt and Treyden giving her a hug, and then Treyden kissing her finger better.

      Its been a great day. I always like fast Sundays. I feel renewed, usually. And I needed it after all the sugar I have eaten this past month. Anyway, on to a new year, great goals, positive outlook, cleanse and work outs. Hurray for the new year!
   We are so excited for the new Temple and we have reservations already. Although, I did get reservations the day after they started and most of the days were already gone! Except for the mornings only on weekdays. Wow they filled up fast. But we are excited to share with neighbors and friends.
   We had a good week. Jay had his first Saturday off yesterday and it was so fun!. We got some good things done, he went to a meeting, did some homework, the kids got a nap, and then we were going to go to the desert to ride go-karts and an invention Preston made that we call a Go-quad(cause he used a quad and a Go-kart to make it). Anyway it ended up that the desert didn't work out so we took them to the inner-stake center and rode around the parking lot. It was so fun, and the Go-Quad is so fast. It shifts into gears and it was a blast. Eden loved riding on the go-carts, and I love the Go-quad. I think I love going fast and anything that gives me a little adrenaline rush. Pictures are attached. Also, Eden graduated nursery today and they had a little graduation. She LOVES Sunbeams, but misses nursery a little. She enjoyed playing with her brothers.
