Okay on to July. We had a fun Fourth Of July celebration here with my side of the family. We always celebrate it at our house. It was even nicer this year to be able to do it in this huge house.Because everyone sleeps over. :) We always have so much fun.

We got a new puppy, Jack. Jordan bought him for Bethany as a substitute for himself while he is on his mission.:) Jordan's middle name is Jack, thus the puppies name.:)

I made a Pioneer Dinner to celebrate the 24th of July. Real authentic pioneer recipes, and we also made our own butter. We had a lesson on the pioneers and their unbelievable sacrifices. Then we made Honey Taffy! It was fun!

Jameson is FINALLY POTTY TRAINED completely!!! He was my oldest to be trained. He was a little stubborn.:) but we got him new Super Hero Squad underpants and I told him that there were no more diapers for him, I just was not going to buy any. And it worked! I know he COULD do it--he was just CHOOSING not to.

The little boys are so sweet together and protective of each other. They are always hugging and comforting each other if they get hurt or something.They sleep together in the crib.They play together constantly. It is so sweet and cute. :)

Not totally sure about this one....but no screaming! :)
I told myself I was NOT gonna get behind in my blog...I did. But now Im gonna try to catch up here. Okay June was great, I turned 41 and Jessica turned 21. Bailey turned 14 and Jacob turned 2! Its a busy birthday month in June for us, as you can see. For my birthday, I went out the entire day, all alone. I went to the stores I love and ate at the restaurants I love. I had SO MUCH FUN!
We went to Lagoon, and Jacob was afraid of pretty much every ride. :) We had a lot of fun though, and Jameson loved everything! We always go with my side of the extended family every year and take a yummy picnic.
I went to Youth Conference with our ward, along with my three kids that are in Mutual. It was fun. We stayed at a cabin and went boating. Jared lost his swim trunks UNDERWATER and came back wearing only a towel! it was pretty funny!
Bailey and Becca performed at the Riverton Arts Festival. They did AMAZING! I was very proud of them. They write their own songs and have amazing voices.
We got baby chickens! We have quite a big grasshopper population here, because of the field. Last August, when we walked through the back yard, grasshoppers were just scattering everywhere with each step we took. They were also all over the house! This year---none on the house and none on the lawn!

Well obviously I am a little behind, since I always post an entry the last day of each month. But here is my recap for May.
My Bigelow got married on May 6!! Stephanie Bigelow is one of Jessie's best friends and I love her to death. She married Joey Defillipis in the Logan temple. We had a nice day and she looked so pretty. I am so happy for her. :)
Mothers Day was nice, my kids gave me a FREE DAY where they took care of everything and took the babies to several different places all day so I could just relax and do NOTHING! :)
It was WONDERFUL!!!!
May 19--21 was the Sand Dunes. It was really fun and we had a great time. My babies LOVED it. The first day it rained but it was really not too bad.
Then May 28-30 we went camping at Granit Flats over Memorial Day weekend. We totally got rained out and came home a day early because all we had been doing was sitting in the trailer. :( But we did get one good day in there and some cute pictures.

APRIL 2011

This is how Jacob closes his eyes at family prayer :)

My cute little Jakey with his "blankie" and "baba"

This is how Jameson fell asleep watching a movie!

It cracks me up how he has his hands!

My "Feasting On The Words Of Christ" dinner for our Laurels and Priests

Coloring our Easter eggs! He is at that age where they can't smile on command. :)

Jacob loves to do everything the big kids do. :)

My 6 big kids!

He loved that his hands were green from the dye--he kept saying, "I'm the HULK! "I'm the HULK!"

With the Easter Bunny at the City Park egg hunt

Finding Easter eggs on Easter Morning

Playing his Easter Trumpet! We left it home all day while we were at Family parties, and he kept saying, "I NEED my trumpet!" :)

My 8 BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, SWEET, AWESOME children whom I live for and love so much! :)

All through this month Jacob loved getting into this container of eggs. He would kick his legs and laugh and throw them everywhere. :)

Wow I thought MARCH went by fast, but April was even faster! I can't believe its over!

We really enjoyed General Conference. We have our tradition of Bean and Corn Salsa and 7 layer dip that we always have. I love listening to the words of our Prophet and Church Leaders. I am always inspired and so thankful for the Gospel.

I hosted a "Feasting on the Words of Christ" dinner for the Laurels and Priests in my ward. (I am the Laurel Advisor) It was really cool. Every food we ate had a scripture reference, and they didn't know what they were ordering, because they only ordered by scripture. So some ended up with strange varieties of food. And some ordered only a knife to eat their meal with. ( there is a scripture that talks about a sword--that was their knife) ha ha

Easter was very fun! It always is with little kids. Coloring eggs was a blast, and Jacob and Jameson enjoyed it so much. We spent the day with family and had lots of good food and good company. By the time we got to my Moms, Jacob and Jameson had been in several egg hunts over the past two days. So, we start my Moms egg hunt, Jacob finds two eggs and puts them in his basket. Then he stopped, looked in his basket, and then dumped out the eggs on the ground. He then threw his basket and simply said, "Done". And walked away! I guess he was tired of finding these eggs Mom kept making him find!! ha ha ha

On April 28 and 29, I went to Women's Conference with my Mom, Sarah, Jamie, and my best friend from High School, Debbie. Her mom Barbara also came. We had SO much fun. We went to great uplifting classes, enjoyed the night of service where you help with tons of different Humanitarian options like Newborn Packets, Hygiene Kits, Christmas Stockings for needy children, etc.It is really neat to see all these hundreds of women helping!
We had so much fun shopping and eating out and laughing TONS! I love Women's Conference!

We are looking forward to all the fun things coming up this summer. We just had family council and discussed all the fun things we have planned! I love my family so much and love my life with them. :)
