It's about time...Really it is!

I should be doing a lot of other things right now, homework, sleeping (I have to work a grave tonight), cleaning, laundry, running, bathing babies....you name it, I SHOULD be doing that. Instead I sit here and wonder what in the world I could blog/journal about for my posterity, and my family and maybe even friends that might be interested??

I have to mention, first, that life is good. It's really, really good. I really love my husband, my children are all amazing, beautiful, talented....driving me crazy ;) Second, I have been so, so, so, so, busy, but I choose to be, I would be unhappy if I wasn't. Third, life IS moving on! Kylie is in 7th grade! I was just in 7th grade myself! My baby is going to be one in less than a month!!!! As I type this I am a little teary, life moves way to fast when one is so distracted.

Any way, I just want to post a few pictures of some goings on...other than that....that's it. Seriously, I could be here all day updating.

Beautiful nieces with my babies, they are graduating from HS in May!!! I met Kevin when they were just three. I love these girls.
It's hard being a baby around here.
Kelby is Three! He thought it was Christmas just for him.
Leilani turned nine. She had a birthday party with her tres chic friends. Very girly and just right.

Kelby found my camera.

I promise to post more of the older kids later, this is all I had on my SD card, maybe I better get on the ball, since the kids decided to grow up on me.

No Where Else I'd Rather Be

Your right, I still need to blog about Halloween....and I will....soon. There are so many things going on in our lives right now; my career change, along with it's accompanying school, homework, and hard work at the hospital. Kylie getting a social life and pretty much growing up right before our very eyes, Broden doing so well at everything, Leilani and gymnastics, Kaxton....being a six year old boy and of course the babies....not to mention Daddy and his job paying for all of this!!!! I have so very many conflicting emotions, as we contemplate a move to Washington, taking our children from the country life they have always known, me working full time and becoming the primary bread winner, all the success that I feel as I work outside the home right now. So many things pulling us all away from this.......

I realize, that there is nowhere I'd rather be, than right here, right now...Today!

I always dreamed (when I was growing up) that I would have a lot of boys. I've had three, each one totally different...but the same! This post I want to share the baby boy. In these childhood dreams of mine, I always fantasized that my boys would be best friends and do everything together. Broden, Kaxton and Kelby have yet to be "best friends" but I think they are on their way. Broden and Kelby have a special relationship, Kelby waits for Broden to come home off the bus every day, he loves to play with him and fight with him and tell on him......
Kelby is feisty

Kelby is soooo sweet

and smart! What a joy he has been in just these fun two years we have had him!

He is all boy and so funny. Currently his favorite things are: Veggie Tales, turkey sandwiches, playing "guys" with Broden, and snuggling in bed with Momma!

There you have it! Our beautiful family. This morning as I was getting ready for church, I was feeling so frustrated because of the amount of time it takes to get everyone out the door looking decent. There was a great deal of fighting and name calling, even some yelling by Kevin and I. No one likes to walk into sacrament meeting feeling like you could rip your kid's head off at any moment. Most Sundays are like this for me, all the way up until the opening hymn, I feel so much frustration! I am positive that the adversary would have me feel this way, especially after down loading these pictures and really looking through all that we have on this computer to document our children's upbringing. There is no doubt about it, I am so blessed and lucky that the Lord trusted me to raise these beautiful spirits.....even the ones going through puberty and the two year old ones that color on the baby.

Things are crazy right now, not just crazy, insane!!!! What was I thinking? Six children, full time school, full time work, gymnastics, volleyball, scouts, homework, sick babies, potty training, and on and on and onnnnnn. Last night as I finished a quiz in psychology and read a chapter of my Anatomy and Physiology, I was feeling so overwhelmed. (I know...on Sunday...Sorry Mom) When I finally emerged from the office, Kevin had put everyone to bed, folded Six loads of laundry, wiped down the kitchen, cleaned the living room.....need I say more? He just smiled at me, asked me how I did and we went to bed. I know that there is no way we could get clear through graduate school if he was a typical husband. He is the cream of the crop, he loves me unconditionally, (even in the throws of postpartum depression), he's an amazing daddy, he is HOT and Sexy, thus the six kids! Here's to you HON! I love you! Thanks for being my babies Daddy!

Life at the ZOO!!!

We went to Salt Lake this past weekend! We had so much fun! I love that the kids love riding the elevators and escalators more than anything. I love that the tall buildings were entertainment. I love that they begged to spend more time at Temple Square! When you live in Wyoming, Downtown Salt Lake City is really an eye opener!
