April and May

April and May kept us busy busy. Noah was playing flag football.  He had such a fun time and his team won the championships!!! 
We had a great team. One of the kids on the team's Dad is a pilot....he flies Drew Brees back and forth to New Orleans, he set it up so Drew came to our football team party.  It was so cool. He was really nice and the boys definitely thought it was very neat!!!

Besides football Noah started cubscouts. He is loving getting to go and enjoys doing stuff every week!!

Jeff and Noah got to go to a dodger game! They went with another father and son in our ward. They had a fabulous time and the dodgers even played an awesome game!

Great to be 8

If you follow me on about the million other social media outlets you have already seen these pictures....

Noah was baptized May 4th, 2013 It was a very special day filled with our closest family and friends. Jeff baptized him and confirmed him a member of the church. Noah was so nervous about the entire process. It was so cute to see him and his mannerisms through out the day. Noah is such a good kid with a good heart. We couldn't be more proud of him and the example he is setting for his 4 younger brothers!!

 As if the day wasn't special enough we also decided to bless Nash. It was very emotional for me being my last baby and my first baby sharing these special days. I love that they will always have this day together.

 Noah loves both his Grandma's so much. He asked them to speak at the baptism. It was so special to hear the sweet messages they had prepared just for him!!

 We were so lucky to have so many wonderful friends and family be here to share this special day with our family. And shortly after this I was done from the bronchitis I had been suffering with for the week!!

That one time.....

I have neglected this blog for far too long.  The boys were having fun looking through old posts the other day and it reminded me of what I LOVED about blogging. I LOVE that they have an online journal of their lives. So I am committed to making a comeback.

I feel like I am in need of a few come backs but blogging seems like the easier of the options.  This summer has been a whirlwind and we are FINALLY in the home stretch.  It has been a rough summer.....5 kids is truly kicking my butt! Today I got a taste of what is to come through the form of 2 kids at home!! The older three boys were all gone at summer camp. Let me tell you it is going to be GOOD!! I am giddy with excitement!! So look out for a comeback friends......It is going to be EPIC. That is if anyone even reads this thing!!!

The death of the Disney Passes

The saddest day ever.... Our Disney passes expired. I knew this day was coming. Just after we bought our passes they raised the prices HUGE jump!! So we were fortunate enough to spend two days there the week our passes expired. We met Jeff's family one day and friends and cousins the second day. We had an awesome day except when the day ended I might have cried on my way out!! Until next time Disneyland!!

I love the holidays. I love a theme I love giving my kids fun little things and I love to go all out. I don't like the after a holiday let down. And that is kind of what Easter was :( after a long week of camping it was a little crazy. The boys decides to wake us up at 5:30 when I went down stairs they had already opened there baskets and hunted all the eggs. I was pretty much devastated and that didn't help the mood of the day. Unfortunately once I am in a bad mood I can't get out of it. So it was a hard day. I really need to work harder in not having such high expectations :)
