Birthday party! Ball Party!

Just like his brother he loves to play with any kind of ball, so we took the few ideas we were going to use for Lincoln's party last year and made a really fun, cute party for Trey. The decorations were a hit for all the kids! I forgot to get a picture of the ceiling but we had a bunch of the small blowup balls all hanging from the ceiling in the kitchen. it was my favorite decorations!

My Baby is 1!!!

Look at how little he was! I really can't believe where this last year went! I feel like it was just yesterday and we were singing Happy Birthday to Lincoln on his 1st birthday! Well i guess we were! Really this last year has been busy but has been a lot of fun! Walking at 11 months and now all over the place. Now Josh plays football with the boys and when Trey gets the ball, he walks as fast as he can, laughing the whole time!(He thinks he is so fast) He loves Lincoln, and wants to do everything he is doing, except for eating. We wish Lincoln would take after his little brother and eat at least half of what he does! Definitely starting to talk a little, soccer, ball, thank-you(this is one is very new) momma, dadda, and tries to repeat everything. Now knows how to point at what he wants which helps. Sleeps in the same room as his big brother and one of our favorite things is listening to them laugh in the mornings when they wake up. Trey is a very sweet natured kid, and is always happy. Staring to voice his opinion but normally laughing. Trey was our happy surprise and I couldn't imagine life without him. He makes everyone around him smile!

Cousin Book!

Shaunie, Josh's sister made this book for all the cousins on Josh's side. It is the cutest book. Each page has pictures of the different cousins and then a few pages in the back are pictures of some of the cousins together! With all the excitement, Lincoln sat and read this book i think 3 times through just asking "Who that"! It was so cute, thanks so much Shaunie!

Christmas Morning!

I love Christmas with kids.. they get so excited and make the morning so much fun! All the cousins had fun showing each other what Santa brought! We figured Lincoln would be so much fun but didn't think Trey would be as animated as he was. He really was so cute and so much fun to watch.


These are just a few pictures I took of Christmas Eve! One of the traditions in our house growing up, was dressing up and acting out the christmas story, of Christ's birth as my dad read from the scriptures. This year my mom and brother went over to Jerusalem and while there got some dress up clothes for each family to have for there own. It really is a fun thing to do with kids... we lost about half of them by the time we did it, so maybe next year we will do it earlier!

Christmas Eve At Grannys

Every year we go to Granny's for Christmas Eve... and each year we add to the numbers! Lincoln loved Granny's, her backyard is a golf course!!

7/10th were 2 and under!

These 3 were TROUBLE! The three 2 year olds! 7 of the 10 kids were 2 and under! Crazy, huh! It really was so crazy, not a dull moment, not a silent moment but it was so much fun! I can't believe they were all able to be here for so long. It started to feel like they lived here!

Houston Museum

My mom had all kinds of fun things planned for the kids, and the museum was one of them. I only took Lincoln to the Dinosaur Museum when we were living in Utah and this was so much fun. There was a lot more for the kids to do and perfect for all the kids!

Houston Zoo!

We took the kids to the zoo one of the days and they loved it! They were all so goo and it really was a ton of fun! My mom bought a year long pass for the whole year so I'm excited to take the boys again!

Christmas in the United States

We had the cutest Santa come to my parents house to celebrate Christmas in the U.S. He really was so good, he read them stories, gave them a little candy, and the kids didn't seem to be too scared to go and talk with him!

Christmas in Different Countries! MEXICO

My mom decided while we were all here for Christmas to do a theme each day! Would talked about different ways people in different countries celebrated Christmas! I dont think they really understood, or at least most of them, but I think the kids really had tons of fun! They expected a different hat each day! This was Christmas in Mexico!!
