By the way, check out the sidebar I have added a Phillips Phollowers. If you follow me let me know. I Love You all even if you are just a lurker.
I found this photo on the camera from the day that I was in California. It made me laugh. Who is being more lazy. Sabrina, who can totally hold her own bottle. Or Jared, who is barley holding the bottle while actually trying to pay more attention to the TV than his little sister?
Well ,which one did you guess??
You are wrong. The answer is OWEN. The dad who has pawned off bottle duty to his kid so that he could take pictures of them instead.
Love you Honey.
She isn't fast yet and she only does it from time to time. But I know that within a week I am going to need to get a gate for the top of the stairs. And now I am going to turn in to a Floor Natzi trying to get my other kids to keep things off the floor that Sabrina could choke on. Also we are going to have to sweep and mop almost every day. YIPPEE, like I don't have enough to do already. Oh wait, I have 3 big kids and 1 little one they can do it or at least help. I knew I had a lot of kids for a reason.
By the way, did you notice how she sticks her tongue out while she is crawling she get that from her Auntie Meghan. She always concentrated better at gymnastics when her tongue was out. No Sabrina need her out when she is working hard too. Hopefully as she gets better at it her tongue will go back in her mouth. Though it is pretty cute.
This is me attempting to get a picture of Sabrina's TWO new teeth. If you look really hard you can see the white poking out of her gums. Let me tell you it is very hard to get a 8 1/2 month old to open her mouth and show her new teeth, no matter how excited her mommy is. She was way more interested in trying to get a hold of my camera. But she is cute so I will let it slide.
He is excited to be turning 40. He is growing out is goatee so that he can see how much grey hair is in it. There are times I joke that he is my sixth kid. Actually, one of the things I love about him is the fact he plays so well with our kids. He is a great dad. I am always amazed at how he tricks the kids into doing work by making it fun. That is a skill I need to work on. I am really looking forward to the next 40 years with him, because as he knows he is stuck with me for life.
Happy Birthday honey.

For Jared's birthday he wanted to go to Lagoon. Utah's amusement park, for those of you in California think Magic Mountain on a MUCH smaller scale. Jared has wanted to go there for the past few summers. The only draw back for Lagoon is that for all of the good rides you have to be 51 inches. This was the year that he finally made that mile stone, but as you can see he was stretching out every centimeter. Can you see the look of elation on his face as he is going on the first ride.

November 2003, I let go of the spoon and let big girl Jilli do it herself. But if you look close it is only on her face, not her clothes, not her hands, not even on the high chair. Man does my girl love her some chocolate pudding.

So you know it is the end of summer when they close the pool at Heidi and Jason's. Good thing they keep the hot tub open year round the kids can at least still get wet when we go there. It isn't as much fun but it is better than nothing. Besides when the buy a house we won't get to swim at all. I guess that means the kids will no longer want to go to Heidi's house. Yeah right!!!
Just a few picture of our Sunday trip to the park. We really should do it more often. The weather was perfect. We went just after dinner just to get ride of some of the kids energy and then to top things off we took them for Sunday ice cream. I think the kids are liking getting treats on Sunday. I guess it will become a family tradition. I think I will just have to limit treats during the week.
