Darling Little Lacey

Here are some pictures of Lacey at 6 weeks.


After months of waiting to receive their award, Caleb and Carson were presented with their Wolf badge in Scouts. But before they could recieve their award they had to "be a wolf". They had to dig in the "snow" (whip cream) for the "rat meat" (jerky) and then eat the meat all gone.
Caleb was hesitant to dig in.

They thought it was fun and all the Scouts were cheering!
They said the jerky tasted pretty good!

Happy Birthday Calvin!!!

On the 16th, Calvin turned 7 years old! We had a fun day for him.
He wanted red frosting on his cake. I ran out of food coloring, so he got pink. Sorry son!
He only wanted one thing for his birthday: a building set. So that was his favorite present. It is a K'nex set where you build different insects. He already built a giant scorpion!
Just a few reasons why we love our Calvin...
He is a great builder
He is very dedicated to his piano practicing
He is very thoughtful (sometimes he surprises me by making my bed)
He is very smart and really thinks things through
He loves to read (The Magic Treehouse is one of his favorites)
He's a fun brother to play with
He has many friends (everywhere we go, kids are always saying "hi" to him)
He makes us laugh
He's a wonderful son and we are glad he is apart of our family!

Happy Anniversary!!

Ben and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary on the 14th! Where has the time gone?
We talked about different things that have happened to us.
We have lived in 6 different homes in 3 cities.
We have owned 6 vehicles.
We now have 6 children: 5 boys and 1 girl.
Ben graduated with his Bachelor's Degree in Biology from ASU.
Ben is now half way done with Medical School.
Briana received her Associate's Degree in General Studies from Rio Salado.
We started a Heating and Cooling business: Cobalt Mechanical, LLC
The years have gone by fast, but I wouldn't change it for the world.
Ben made a delicious breakfast that morning: french toast made with homemade bread and bacon and juice. It was tasty. My parent's watched the boys while we went to Arriba's Mexican Grill and some fun shopping. We then had a little party that night with the family to celebrate our 'family's birthday'. We watched a movie and had treats. I loved the whole day! Ben is a wonderful husband and I love him so much. We are a great team together!

Calvin's School Program

The first-graders in Calvin's school did a cute little music program. All the boys wore bandanas and the girls wore poodle skirts. They all did a great job. Then the kids gave their mom's a flower for Mother's Day. It was really sweet and Calvin did a great job singing and dancing!

Cheese Crisps

Is it bad when your 3 year old knows how to make cheese crisps by himself?
Devin LOVES cheese crisps! After we had lunch and I just cleaned up everything, I came back into the kitchen and saw this...
I guess Devin was still hungry and decided to help himself. He could find the flour tortillas, so he just used corn tortillas instead. How resourceful! Funny boy! (The shirt he is wearing is one he "designed" himself with highlighters.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was wonderful! We did alot of visiting with family. The morning started off by the boys and Ben giving me a radio for the kitchen, which I am so excited about! I had one when we lived in Tucson and I loved it! I would borrow books on CD's from the library and would listen to books as I would clean. We then went to our church and then hurried over to listen to Judd (Ben's brother) speak in his ward since he just returned home from his mission. We went over to eat at the Richardsons and talk to Jordan (Ben's other brother on a mission). And then we went over to my paren'ts house to talk to John (my brother on a mission). It was a day full of fun! And I just wanted to tell both of our moms out there how much we love them and appreciate all that they do for us. We couldn't ask for better mothers.
