More Birthday Pictures

Seth turns 1

So my baby turned 1 yesterday. Bittersweet. I can't believe a year has come and gone. He is such a happy, smiley baby. He walked when he was 10 months and hasn't quit moving ever since. He LOVES to eat and still hasn't gained anything for 6 months. He loves balls of any kind. So we did a sports party. We did a combined party for Seth and Parker. But Parker's real bday is tomorrow so I will post more pics of him later. Seth says dad and hi. Can't get him to say mom, he just smiles and looks away. He is such a fun blessing to our family. We absolutely love him.

LOVED this quote

Parents, remember that now is your opportunity. You may feel yourself harassed as you struggle through the days with children, but you are living the happiest and the most golden years of your life. As you tuck them into their beds at night, please be kind to them. Let them hear a kind voice amid all the angry, vile voices that they will hear throughout life. Let there be an anchor to which these little ones can turn when all else fails. The lord help you so to do....

Dad dressing Seth

This is what happens when Wayne changes a diaper, pulls up Seth's pants and then realized he didn't snap up his shirt. Seth didn't seem to mind though:)

Playing catch up.....

Wow....6 months of catch up blogging. Hopefully this year I can stay on top of it a little better.

Parker's 1st time skiing

Wayne took Parker skiing for the 1st time today. They went to Alta and said it was just a beautiful day. Of course I worried about Parker the whole he going to break a bone or loose some teeth. But they had a blast. Parker couldn't stop talking about it and can't wait to go again. Wayne is planning on taking all 3 of them up before the end of the season....good luck to him.

Seth through the months (part 1)

Seth through the months (part 2)


We planned a surprise trip to disneyland last december. The kids were busy and never saw me bring up the suitcases and pack them and bring them back to the car. We picked up Wayne's dad and told the kids we were going to see Christmas lights. He drove us to the airport and I told them we were going to tour the airport:) We unloaded the suitcases and Parker said, "we don't tour the airport with luggage". I just smiled at him and we went on our way. We checked in, got on the plane and shortly after that, landed in Orange County. Parker figured it out soon after. It took Kendra awhile. They all fell asleep on the way to the hotel so they never saw the big disneyland signs. We got up the next morning and went to Goofy's Kitchen. We were waiting and Brooklynn said, "hey, I've been here before". I asked her where here is and she looked around for a minute. And said "Disneyland". They were all so excited. The weather was absolutely perfect, the beach water....not so much. But still beautiful. We played there for 3 days and then met Wayne's brother, Mark and his wife, Alicia and their 2 kids and played at the beach. It was so fun surprising them, and we loved playing at the beach with our favorite family living in California. We miss you guys.


Lake Powell (October)

We went to Lake Powell with some neighborhood families. Wayne hasn't been there since before we were married and I was there one time growing up. The kids had so much fun. The water was perfect. The kids skiied and played in the water all day for a few days. Everytime that the boat started Seth fell asleep and when the boat stopped, he woke up. We took the kids cliff jumping (certainly not too high).

Kendra's 8 and baptized (October)

My sweet little girl just turned 8 (well last September) and was baptized. She was so excited and nervous. We shared her baptism with another family in our ward. It was so special and the talks were beautiful. Her uncle Stephen spoke and she really felt the spirit. Her dad baptized her and her Great Grandpa Maxfield and Grandpa Brown witnessed it. I loved watching her sit there and listen to the talks and feel the spirit. She is such a beautiful girl. We came home to beautifully decorated cupcakes that we made the day before and had a lunch with our whole family. I am so grateful our family was there to support her and her decision. We love you Kendra and are so proud of you.

I have gotten way far behind, so here is Seth at 4,5 and 6 months. At 5 months he started rolling over, shortly after that he started sitting up and now at 6 months he is crawling. My baby is growing up too fast. He is the Happiest baby, we just love him.
