Haylie just had a birthday at the end of December. I can't believe she is already 4! Well, maybe I can because she acts like she is a teenager! She keeps right up with her older sister and brother. She got a DS for Christmas and she has to show Mark and I how to use it. She is one smart cookie! We love her so much!
For her party she had her little cousins over for some sleigh riding down Grandma Raine's hill in her back yard. It was I think the coldest day of winter break but it didn't stop the kids from playing in the snow! She wanted a donut cake and hot chocolate, so it turned out pretty fun!

Ellie's birthday was at the beginning of December and she turned 1! I can't believe how fast this year has gone. She is still pretty small weighing in at a whopping 16 pounds 13 ounces which is again in the 1%. She was in the 48% for height and then the 90% for head. She is not qalking yet she just started crawling at 11 months. I guess that is true with your baby they get carried everywhere so she has never learned how to do it yet. She got a little stroller to use that also works as a walker so hopefully she will start to walk soon. She is my picky eater; well she will eat anything as long as it is not any baby food or regular milk. She loved her formula but she will not touch regular milk, hopefully that will change too. We all love her so much! Here are just a few pictures my sister took for her 1st birthday, Thanks Jill!

Ellie- 9 months already?

I can't believe my baby is already 9 months old! I think with each child the time goes by faster and faster. I took her to her 9 month check up and she is definately the runt of the family. She weighs a whopping 14 pounds 7 ounces and is 26 3/4 inches long. This puts her in the 1% for her weight and the 28% for her length. Don't worry her head is in the 90%. She is a little spit fire with a lot of attitude! She is so spoiled and if her mom is in the room she has to be holding her if anyone else tries to hold her she screams. She is now sitting up really well on her own. She has no desire to crawl yet; I think she is content just to sit there and scream until mom picks her up. She loves her sisters and brother; they can get her giggling just by being by her.
We love her so much and wouldn't change her for anything!!

Hard Core T-ball

It's ballpark time! It's crazy I feel like we live at the ball park. Albie has been playing every Tuesday and Thursday night and Garrett plays every Wednesday and Friday, can I just say that I am glad that June is almost over! I guess in Payson they make you be already in Kindergarten to play t-ball and well since Garrett could have gone to Kindergarten this past year I thought he was ready for t-ball. they didn't have emough coaches so they call me last minute to see if I would be able to coach, of course I said yes because I have a hard time telling people no so basically Mark has been the coach even though he swore he would never coach again until the kids actually know how to play (he coached Albie her first year of t-ball). We have been a good team, the kids are just fun to watch, Garrett though is quite the ball player, he is the youngest (not yet in Kindergarten) but he is one of the better kids on the team. He lives and breathes sports which ever is in season at the moment is his favorite!

His favorite thing to do is SLIDE I think he would slide at every base if the COACH would let him!! Maybe he just likes to get dirty because if your pants are clean at the end of the game that means you didn't play hard (his coach must have told him that too). We've had fun at the ball park but I am really glad we are almost done until next year!
* I'll have to post some pictures of Albie playing her last game, I guess that means I need to take picture huh?

Classic Skating

Okay, I have to tell everyone, Classic Skating is the place to be and NO, it's not the 80's. My sister asked if I wanted to take my kids to Classic Skating, I told her no because my kids don't know how to skat and I didn't want to have to hold all 3 of their hands adn take care of a 6 months old (impossible for most). Then she told me it's not like it used to be when we would go there, now they let you take your kids scooters, ripticks, skateboards or skates and they turn the lights out and let them ride to the music! It was so much fun my kids loved it, they even had little games for the kids to play while they were skating (or scooting like my kids).
This is Haylie after all the fun on the ride home, she had won some tickets and bought some vampire "bangs" as her prize! It was so cute I had to get a picture!

They also had video games the kids could play for a token and tokens were 10 for a dollar (can't beat that!) Garrett wasnted to play the games as soon as we got there, I kept telling him after 20 times around he could play games, that lasted about 60 times around before he got too tired and realized I would let him play the games later if he stopped asking me!

Albie had fun, she loved the when they turned the lights out her clothes glowed in the dark!

Even Haylie got to ride her scooter around, we only had a minor bump when Haylie started going the wrong direction and ran into a ripstick, she quickly learned to go the right way.
Anyway, it was a great idea for something to do on a summer afternoon, everyone needs to try it! Have fun!!

More photos of Ellie

Ellie is now 3 1/2 months old and I can't believe it! She is growing so much (I still think she is little) but she is getting some personality which is fun! She loves to smile, so I;m glad Jill was able to capture a smile in one of her photos! Thanks again!

Here is Ellie on her blessing day. Here she is with her Grandma Jean and Grandpa Roger. We had a wonderful day, Mark gave her a wonderful blessing and we all celebrated with a lot of yummy food! Pork nachos! They are delicious and are a great party food!

Here she is with her Grandma Raine and Grandpa Brant! I'm not a photographer if you can tell I had Jill take these photos also, I didn't get any other photos of the day, but these are great! We want to thank everyone who supported us and shared this wonderful day with Ellie and our family!
