Sweet Dalan

This little boy of mine can be so CRAZY and SILLY -

Then, he offers these sweet and tender moments and proves to be so sensitive and tender hearted. I love these magical moments! Lately, Dalan has been requesting picture frames for his room. His first request was for Jesus and the temple.

Then, he asked for a picture of both his grandma's. Each night he chooses a picture frame to sleep with to make sure he only has good dreams!
Dave had been travelling quite often, and this particular night I let Dalan sleep in my room. When I came in to tuck myself into bed - this is what I found! Sweet Dalan had made a display on the ground right next to where he was sleeping. It doesn't get any better than that!! Love this sweet little WILD crazy FUNNY man of mine!

Fun in the man - made snow! Over Christmas break, we took the kids up to the mountains and found us some snow! We had such a fun time with good friends and the kids loved every minute of this!

4th of July FUN!

What a fun holiday - to dress in red, white, and blue. To feel loyalty and gratitude for our most beautiful country. To be grateful for the men and women who are honorable and give their lives to fight for our freedoms. Proud to be an American. Love the 4th of July!

Dalan blew a dandelion and I said, "make a wish bud!" He replied and said "I did mom. I wished for my own box of matches!" Eeeeekkkkk........

4th of July is probably even better than Christmas for this little one of mine -

Cute girlies waiting patiently for the big firework show!

Khloe was so great this year. With every boom and bang ... she would clap, cheer and give a little WOO!

She would always run to Caleb and jump on his lap, which he loved!

Cute Macie with a sparkler - a little timid this one.

It was such a sweet grand finale as Macie and her 2 friends, Emily and Aubrie called everyone for a performance. They sang the national anthem "The Star Spangled Banner... " and knew the words in sign language (thanks to their kindergarten teacher!) What a great end to a super fun day!

Summer - Summer - Summer TIME!!

We FINALLY made it to the water park!! Sweet!


This is what I have been getting from Khloe lately - it makes me giggle.... does that make me mean?? I just find it so funny that she is upset about - NOTHING!! I know this is just a stage and that it too will pass ... and I honestly don't remember my other two being this emotional! Maybe that means I just forgot, and hopefully this will be shortlived. The terrible two's - bring it!!

*** Life With a 2-Year-Old ... I try to remember that whenever I am feeling frustrated, I think about watching Khloe grow from a baby into an actual person with her own desires, opinions, and a sense of humor. Puppys make her crazy with excitement. She loves the outside. She LOVES to swing and she adores her brother and sister!! I love our nighttime routine as I put her to bed - we say our prayers, tell stories, and every night as I tuck her into bed I am reminded how lucky I am to have her. Even with these "tantrums" - I still manage to laugh at this phase. It too will pass and I know one day I will miss it! ***
