Baby is a Blessing

We traveled to Vacaville to witness the blessing of baby Corbyn. He's a cute chunk!

We went over to Jen's parents' house to swim and eat dinner the night before the blessing. The kids had fun in the pool.

Jackson loves his "ookies"

An attempt to gather my kids for a family picture. Never happened.

Love this guy but he is hard to travel with.

A Milestone

On a recent trip out of town, we hit this milestone on our van. Can't believe it! Especially since we bought the car with 20 miles on it!
How many more miles will it go??

Reunited and it feels so good!

We got a quick overnight visit from the Jeff Gabbitas family on their way to a family reunion.
It was soo good to see them. It's been about 3 years!!

Jared and Rebecca- she is SO talented. They need to get this girl on the stage! She sang for us, in 3 part harmony even!

Jacey loved little Julia

Cute family! Love Ryan's pose! ha!
Not sure why I'm posting this- taken before hair and makeup. Jacey tries to imitate Ryan's pose.
Our chillins- all nine of them. A trip to Tuscon and Mexico is in the works. We gotta hang out more often.

Ballet Time

Jacey has asked for a couple of years to take dance. I told her she could when she started Kindergarten. She started her first dance class a couple of weeks ago. She was so excited to get the dance clothes and dance shoes.
She insists her hair be in a bun. She informed me after the first class that the bun wasn't good enough and to do it better next time. Hmmmm.
She did very well in class, except for the time when she ran around the room doing the chicken dance and the teacher made her sit out.
She loves her Jackson.

Doggy Photoshoot

My friend writes for a local family magazine and she was writing an article about Summer Fun (I think, i haven't seen the article yet) and she wanted a picture of Jared and Jaden playing with Lola. I thought I'd go out in the backyard and snap a few pictures. It was harder than I thought. Getting a puppy to pose wasn't easy. This is the picture that is in the magazine. I need to go find a copy somewhere in town. They usually have the magazine in Drs offices etc.
Jaden and Lola

Jacey wanted in on it.
We are still surviving puppyhood. The kids like her. We tolerate her.

Piano Recital

Jared had a piano recital in May. He did a great job!!! He definitely doesn't love playing the piano yet, but one day he'll thank me!


Jacey went to a princess birthday party recently and I had to snap some pictures of her.
Strike a pose
She is such a happy, fun girl!

More Jaden Birthday

I am so behind. Before we went to Utah, we celebrated Jaden's birthday at our house. The main reason is because he got a DS for his birthday, and we needed to give it to him before the drive to St. George.
Jacey and Morgan

Seven years old

He requsted a chocolate cake with white frosting.

Happy Birthday Jaden!
