Five Kids Five and Under

Back in February Tadd and I watched Chris and Tysen's kids for a few days while they went to Las Vegas to see Celine Dion (who actually cancelled her show the day of because she was sick. How awful!)

I actually had a lot of fun dressing a little girl while we stayed there, but that doesn't at all mean I'm ready to have a girl of my own! *harrowing teenage years*

Bubble baths with a shower after were a huge hit.

Chris and Tysen had left each of the kids with a book to open up one night. Sam got one too, it was so sweet!

All gray leggies!

My little errand buddy!

Tadd and I took the big kids to Trafalga one night to miniature golf!

And celebrated our victories with Dippin' Dots afterward.

I regularly forgot Sammy's jimjams, so he got to sport Lyla's most nights.

Our greeny day.

Enjoying our nightly ritual in SUPER SIZE!

I wanna squeeze those cheeks all day long.

Sunday morning. All five kids, on time for 11:00 sacrament meeting. I felt we deserved medals.

However, this sweet girl passed out while I was curling her hair. It was kinda scary! She was really brave though!

Lyla was such a joy to feed because she'll eat and eat! Something I wish my own child would do. Such a silly little girl!

Double Shower

Joint bridal shower for two of my salon sisters! Both Chelsea and Lindsey got married in April, we had so much fun chatting for hours at my house!

Before the arrival of food. Potluck style showers...the ONLY way to go. Otherwise, you will not find me throwing that shower.


Guests! Missing a few of the girls that left earlier. 

Our Silly Boy

Prepare for some major catch-up posts mostly void of captions, and chock full of photos, some dating back to who-knows-when (January? November?)

We have one goofball of a baby.

Caught this scene upon cleaning up after Sam went down for his nap.

First date with Hallie. Opened her door and everything...

...then hoarded his snacks.

Must carry around a myriad of random objects, resulting in pile of crap in my car.

Didn't bother putting up a fight...

Visiting the Halls

Chalk, stethoscope...typical day.

Small Rememberings

As of about a month ago, Samson started counting to 12 on his own, but only when we aren't asking him to.

The other day I sang, "M, N, O, P, Q", and he finished with, "R, S, T". I was shocked!

He is talking like a mad man, and surprises us everyday with something new. Yesterday it was, "Hey! Guess what!?"

He is still the craziest kid I ever did meet, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Samson currently has hand, foot and mouth disease, and is just covered in blisters. We first noticed them the morning of July 4th on his groin and thigh area, and they spread so quickly that by the 5th they were everywhere. I assumed since they weren't just on his hands, feet and mouth that it was something else, maybe heat rash, but the doctor confirmed it to be H, F and M. It's been outrageous this year, and presents itself all over the body. Poor kid.

We've been through the Cars and Toy Story phase, touched on Hercules and Tarzan, and are now dwelling on Madagascar, or "Alex" as Sam refers to it at times. Favorite shows are Dinosaur Train, Chuggington, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Phineas and Ferb.

We are totally buddies, and both have an obsession for each other. It's strange to actually be carrying on conversations with this little child of mine, is he already old enough for that???

He is the wildest little man in the pool, never seen anything like it! Without warning one night, he yelled to Tadd that he was going off the diving board, and just ran over and did it! It's tricks along those lines all the time. NO FEAR.

He has a screech of joy higher than any girl I've ever heard.

Since dumping the binki a few days after his birthday, (which, for the record, I miss much more than him. A little essence of babiness...gone) Sam's attachment to his blanket has grown immensely, adding to it, his sleepsack. He carries that around almost just as much as his blanket.

Very drawn to babies, and just wants to smother them!

Nursery is a work in progress, but the idea of church definitely appeals to him. When it comes to nursery, he can't decide whether to cry because I leave him there, or to cry because he has to leave the Play-Doh behind when I pick him up.

Our favorite thing he does lately is after we close a prayer he yells, "Amen Jesus!" Born again Christian...that's how we do things 'round here!

Closing his eyes to pray...oh the effort it takes...
