Swimming lessons are over!!!

The kids finished swimming lessons today! They loved it and we got to have them at the new Payson pool! They all did really well and they were bummed that today was the last day...

Bailey did well, she still needs to work on diving and the backstroke but she really did great!
Morgan had fun too, much better than last year when she cried the entire time!
Owen did very well, infact I think that I should have put him in the next class up, they mainly played to make kids comfortable with water but he has no fear of the water so it would have been better to learn more strokes...oh well, they said that he can jump up two levels next year!

#7 gone!

Morgan lost her seventh tooth last night, one more and she will be caught up to Bailey! It was pretty funny, she was playing with Reagan who has not been feeling well lately and flicked her tooth to try to make Reagan laugh, well out her tooth flew! She was quite shocked! It bled a little bit but soon stopped and she was very excited to go to sleep that night to see what the tooth fairy would bring!

I have come to the conclusion that Morgan want to grow up as fast as possible...she walked at 8 months, potty trained at 18 months and now can't quit loosing teeth, she can't wait until she can wear a bra, infact everytime we go to the store she insists on 'trying' bras on over her clothes!!! I hope that she chills out soon and will just have fun being a kid!

Happy Birthday Grandma Beardall

Happy Birthday Grandma Beardall! She would have been 98 today! She was the most amazing person that I have ever known. She was the definition of hard work and perserverance.

She planted the best tomatoes ever, I never like tomatoes unless they are from her house! She loved to feed people, she took joy in seeing people enjoy the food that she prepared, although she hardley at any thing herself!

Living in the depression she was a saver and a reuser...she was 'green' before 'green' was cool! She had flood irrigation to water her property, she would have us use old milk gallon containers to fill up with the irrigation water so she could use that during the week to water her vegtables instead of using culinary water.

She also had a love for windchimes, while walking to church yesterday my oldest heard a windchime and told me that everytime she hears a windchime she thinks of Grandma...

We miss you so much Grandma but I am thankful that families are forever!!

Six missing teeth for a six year old

Well the 6th tooth popped out today! She was making a peanut butter and honey sandwich and it just fell out! If you can't tell which tooth it was it was the one on the top right side...the one on the top left side is going to be coming out soon too!

She wanted to pose with her note to the toothfairy...I always have to remember to ask her for the tooth back so that I can scrapbook it!

Hanging out in hammocks

My mom bought my Grandma's house a while ago and she has been working on bringing it all back to life reciently...well her and my dad have fallen in love with hammocks and there are a total of five hammocks on the property now! This hammock was Owens favorite, he said that it was his spiderweb! Him and Reagan had a fun time in it, they looked so cuddly and cute that I had to take some pictures Ü

Their cousin Abi was trying to push them...she was so proud of herself for doing so!

Patriotic triplets

We did impromtu pictures of the tripets. As I was getting Reagan dressed that morning I realized that she had three cute tanktops in patriotic we decided to go with it!

Reagan wasn't too sure of it but I pretended that I was going to take them on a ride so she stayed in! I am just happy that she didn't cry...maybe she is growing out of that stage! I just laugh when I see kids who are able to walk up to total strangers and give them a hug or even look at them...oh no not my kids they are very wary of people...even if they see them every week!!!!

We decided to throw Andy in there too. He has never even seen these babies, we were all pregnant when he left on his mission! There is still one more neice that he hasn't met yet!

Happy Birthday Owen!

It seriously feels like yesterday when I saw my baby boy for the first time, and now he is 4!!! I am so happy that Owen joined our family and for the life and adventure that he brings to it.
This was his first bath, and he hasn't stopped getting wet since! He is such a water baby!
This was his blessing day and yes he is red...we had family pictures (with my whole family) the day before his blessing, it was cloudy so we gave no thought to sunscreen, the next day we woke up with a red baby! He didn't seem to mind! Isn't he so handsome in his little tux???
This is his picture from last fall, I can't believe how much he has grown!
We got Owen a new bike for his birthday (yes we got him one last year too but the seat was too weird that he didn't like to sit in the correct spot and that caused him not to be able to pedal...) well I am glad to report that we can scarcely get him off this bike!
The girls wanted to get him some presents too, they got him mini transformers, mini Hulk guys and mini iron man guys, he has loved playing with those all day! I also got him some clothes, I actually got him 5T and they fit pretty good, yay he is growing!!! WE LOVE YOU OWE'S!!!!
