So the Flu has made it's rounds in my family. It started with Mckenna having a headache for 2 days. It quickly turned into a fever and a really bad achy body. Then Carson, Halle and Claire all had a fever and were throwing up. Next Claire and I got what Mckenna had. We are both still fighting it off, but it seem's like we are on the mend. Kyle has managed to avoid it all so far (what a blessing!). In true form, I can't find any pictures that I took over the last few weeks-augh!! I think that it is time that I learn how to download pictures off the camera!

Swinging Double Style

This video and picture is from December. I can't believe some of the things that the kids
come up with or for that matter, the things that we let them do-lol!
We got them another swing for Christmas, so now there is one for each of them.

I can't seem to get the video to work, I will have to have Kyle fix it when he gets back from church. I am home with Carson-he is sick today.

New Blog!

I am starting a new blog for cloth diapering info. and for posting specials and giveaways from my cloth diaper and more store, Diaper Style. I love to share how great cloth diapers are, but I want to re-focus my blog on my family. I am determined to keep it current and hopefully be able to print a book next year to keep for family history. I have a ton of scrapbooking stuff that I just don't use and figure my blog is the next best thing for keeping a record of what we are doing! are welcome to bug me when I am not keeping up on it, in fact you are encouraged to do so! It is so easy to let things slip, but I think that keeping a record of our lives is important and really only takes about 15 or so minutes to update.
So here it goes.....again!

Here are some cute pictures we took of Claire (for my website) yesterday at Kyle's family Easter Party.
There are more pictures to come of the rest of the kids during the easter egg hunt, but for now these are the only pictures that I can find on my computer.

Claire has started to walk. She takes tiny little steps, it is so cute.
I can't believe that she will be ONE yr. next month.
My little baby is growing way too fast!

Hello!! Anyone there?

Wow, I can't believe how fast time goes by. It has been a long time since my last post. There has been so much happening that I don't really know where to even begin?

We have had 3 birthdays in the last month. Halle turned 3 on March 23rd. We had a little family party for her complete with her highly requested Care Bear cake.

Kyle and Mckenna turned 37 and 7 on April 4th. Kyle and Mckenna started their birthday off by going to get free breakfast at JB's and then on to Krispy Kreme for their free dozen donuts, each (like i really needed 2 dozen donuts around here).

Mckenna got a new bike this year and she loves it! She really wanted a girly but sporty bike and I think we delivered. She has pegs on the front and back, it is a cool green color but has a black floral design on the frame. Kyle had Mckenna, Carson and Halle all on the bike at the same time riding around the circle (Mckenna sat side saddle on the frame, Carson was on the back pegs and Halle was on the front pegs), it sorta looked like a circus act. I wish that I had a picture of it, but I couldn't find the camera (next time I guess)

That night we went to Joes Farm house for dinner. They give you $10 off on your birthday, so we got $20 off !! We ate outside under the citrus trees, it was a beautiful day. Joe's is the perfect place for a dinner with 4 kids. They were able to run around and play until our food came. The food was good and afterward we walked across the little road to check out the farm. On the way back to the car the kids rolled down the grassy hills and then we booked it home so that Kyle could get to Priesthood.

I will add pictures in a day or 2, I have to get Kyle to get them off of the camera first.
