Boys will be Boys

It's crazy from such a young age how different boys and girls are. Mason is infatuated with anything that has wheels, tools, and electronics. He is always on the go and looking for the next thing he can get into; much, much different from my girls!! He loves Daddy and already wants to be doing whatever it is Daddy is doing. Mason is Daddy's little helper.


Some of Hannah's favorite things to do are: put on play makeup, get her nails painted, and have her hair done pretty. Dress herself (on those days we try to stay at home).
Play with her new kitty Ruby.

Give her little brother lots of hugs!

Hannah's other favorites right now are her cousin Sydney, Sponge Bob, talking; all though people would never know, she's a chatter box around people she's comfortable with, playing with her older sisters, play dough, painting and drawing. She is SUPER excited to start preschool in a month. Hannah tells me on an hourly basis, "thanks mom you're the best" love that kid!!

Emily's Salon

Emily's theme for her birthday party this year was a home salon, the girls all wore their robes, had smoothies, and rotated at each station: manicure, pedicure, facial, and hair styles. I think the girls all had a great time and enjoyed getting pampered.

Happy Birthday Em

Emily is the big 8 today! This is going to be a very big year for her, she gets to get baptized, go to activity days, and start 3rd grade! Em loves to hangout with her best friend Lilly, ride her bike; something she just learned to do a few months ago, play with her new kitten, play with her squinkies, watch T.V., and play on the computer.

Em is our little cuddle bug; she loves to cuddle and gives her dad and I lots of hugs. Em always tells me "thank you" for anything I do for her. Em is very smart, funny, beautiful, friendly, and is a great daughter and sister. Love You Em, Happy Birthday!!

Madisyn is starting middle school, it's a very scary thought for me! Madisyn is great in school; she made the honor roll all three trimesters. Not only is she starting middle school, she is always going to be in Young Women's, she is finishing up the last few things on her Faith in God for Primary.
Maddy loves to hang out with her friends, dance, listen to music, read, check her Gmail, and ride her bike. She also had her first babysitting job today; something that Maddy will do very well at, she is after all my little mother hen!


I decided that I should probably do an update on all of my kids every once in a while not just on Mason who changes monthly. Ashley is growing up before my eyes!! Ashley got her driving licenses a couple months back and is a very good driver. Ashley enjoys doing what most teenager girls do at this age, hanging out with her friends, dating, sleeping, shopping, texting, tanning, movies, and hanging out with her family.
After a little bit of an arm twisting from one of my good friends; Ashley went to girls camp. To her surprise she had a pretty good time, it was drama free and she survived the "camping" part of it!

Ashley will be a junior this year, it is so fun to watch Ashley blossom into the beautiful young woman she is becoming, Ashley received her Patriarchal Blessing a few months back and continues to talk about what a great tool it has been her daily life. She is working on her personal progress and is finishing a lot of fun projects for that. Ashley also put in a some applications to some restaurants for a part time job. Her dad and I try to tell her to slow down and enjoy not working, that she'll have the rest of her life to work...but what do we know?

Fattening up?

Little Mason has slowly been dropping on the weight chart, not something new for any of my children, but something that I have been greatly concerned about! After gaining a measly 6 ounces, in a month in a half at his 9 month checkup; the doctor suggested we put Mase on a high calorie diet. So after a month of doing so, I'm happy to report that Mason has gained 1 1/2 pounds!!
