Batman & Robin

Terek is really into Batman and Robin right now. He loves to dress up like Batman... and he plays with all of the little batman figures that we have around our house all the time.
He gets grandma to dress up like Robin and play with him.
Holy cuteness Batman!

Aesop's Fables

Brenner had his school program yesterday. They did a production of Aesop's Fables.
It was cute to have the kids come up to the microphone to say their lines. Brenner was the last in his group so it was his job to turn off the microphone.

They had a lot of cute songs. It was fun.

4 Generations

We had a family BBQ for my dad's 63rd birthday. We thought we'd take the opportunity to take a 4 generation pic: My grandpa, Cecil Blake. My dad, Ronald Blake. Me. My Boys, Brenner, Joren and Terek.

Joren's Pre-school Graduation

Joren graduated from Pre-School on Wednesday night.
He got to have the part of welcoming everyone to the graduation and asking everyone to stand for the pledge. He decided to be a little shy and wouldn't do it.
They sang some of their favorite songs from preschool. He was so cute to do all of the actions.
He has loved his teacher. He has learned so much and had a great year.
My friend from work made him these cool paper leis to wear. (We had to pay him $2 to get him to wear them).
He is growing up so fast. And he's way excited for kindergarten next year!

Brenner is 7

This little adorable boy turned 7 last night!
He got up bright and early to open his presents. He was excited for the Sphinx Lego set he had been wanting since Christmas. As always, he got spoiled with too many presents.
He got to eat breakfast on the traditional birthday plate.
He had a friend party. We had a Lego themed party with lots of fun games. For more details on the party, you can visit my craft blog.
He is so big now. It's kind of crazy.
Some things about Brenner: He loves technology stuff. He loves TV, computer and playing on Ryan's Ipod. He loves science and doing experiments. He loves playing with friends. He also loves doing crafts. He loves school and is very smart. He has a bit of a temper when it comes to his little brothers (but who doesn't). Brenner is a really sweet kid. We have enjoyed spending the last 7 years with him:)

Happy Birthday Big B!!!

Circus Bella

On Saturday, we took the kids to a little circus that was in town. It was called Circus Bella. It was an old style traditional one ring circus.

They had some fun, amazing things that they did.... from juggling, to trapeze, to the slack line...

to riding a unicycle.

It was a lot of fun!

The Mormon Channel


I'm a busy person. Between my normal mommy duties, work, exercise, scrapbooking, and the fact that I think I can do everything, I sometimes don't find time for the really important things that I SHOULD be doing. I don't read my scriptures or Ensign as much as I should.

I had mentioned this to my sweet visiting teaching companion while we were visiting a sister. (Now, you must know that my VT companion is blind.) She told me that what I should do is listen to the scriptures and Ensign. What an idea! So, I asked Ryan if he could put them on my phone for me.... and he introduced me to The Mormon Channel! I have the Mormon Channel on my phone so I can listen to it while I am exercising or scrapbooking. I listen to the scriptures while I drive to work in the morning. I love listening to conference the best. It is always a good reminder of what I should be doing.
