Hold on Grey!

Grey just had to try Grandma and Grandpa's tire swing. He couldn't let his brothers have all the fun. He is so funny holding on for dear life. He LOVES it!

Back to Back

The boys like to ask me "Mom, who is taller?" They Love to get "back to back" so I can let them know who is taller. Vance is a little bit taller, but Brogan weighs 3 lbs more. I will be curious to see where they will be in a couple years.

Best Temple Trip Ever!

So It is a new experience for me to have to make a "Temple Trip". I have always lived up the road from a temple so It wasn't really a big deal to decide last minute that I want to go to the temple. Well Everything about the church is different out here. We (as a ward) took a trip on Monday to our Temple (Columbia, SC). It's about a 3 hour drive. I had such an amazing experience. It was very new, because I had never been in a mini-temple before, but it was beautiful. I young girl in our ward kept the boys all day as a service project. It was so nice. After we left the temple, we enjoyed an awesome lunch at Mello Mushroom. It was to die for. Thanks to all who came and made it possible for me to have such a wonderful day.
Me, Bishop Thompson (on the right) and a councilor Brother Brannen. Both awesome!
This is my friend Katrina, who went through for the first time. I was so lucky to get to be there with her. She is awesome. I have grown to love her and her 4 cute kids!
And of course... nothing can be perfect. This is how we ended the day. Good thing I have such a studly husband who got dirty in his nice white shirt and tie, and got it changed quickly. We were back on the road in no time!

Vance say's....

1. Vance -"Hey mom, I can count to 100" - Brogan "Oh Yeah, I can count to 6!"

2. Vance - (while holding the phone to his head) "Can everyone PLEASE be quiet while I call my girlfriend!"

3.Vance - (while shopping in Walmart) "MOM, MOM, Brogan is buying alcohol!" Me - "No Vance, That is Coke.. It is soda, but your right, Brogan shouldn't drink it" (Has Vance been thinking I have been drinking alcohol everytime I drink Soda? yikes)

4.Vance - (while praying for a missionary in our ward that was hit by a car) "Please bless Elder Fife, That he can get better and that his wife can have a baby" (hmmmm)

5. Vance - (also during a prayer) "Please bless Mom that she can clean all my clothes so that they smell like soap)

A big day for Grey

Grey had his first day of nursery on sunday. Its been a long 18 months. Of course he was just like my other boys and took it like a champ. It kind of made me realize how far behind being a preemie has made him. Its ok, he is doing so good. I am so proud of how well he did with all the other kids and never cried once. Love you Greybee Baby!

Lunch date with the oldest

I went to Vances school today to eat lunch with him. He was so sweet when he saw me come in. he loves showing me off to his friends. It makes me feel pretty good about myself;) He kept kissing me the whole time, my arms, my hands, my cheek. I just love my Vancie. I do realize that his kisses won't last forever, but I just dont want to think about it right now. Im just going to live in the moment and enjoy him while hes small and not embarrassed by his mother. Thanks for the lunch date Vance!

Missionary Grooming

I have been doing Missionary hair cuts for a while now. I actually love doing it. It makes me feel like I at least contribute something in our ward:) We have EIGHT Elders in our ward and they are all awesome. Ben loves to go on splits with them. He always comes back with awesome stories. Usually on hair cut day, the all come in together and I try to get them in and out as fast I can. (who could say no to these guys?)

Elder Fletcher, Elder Eller & Elder Enosa
They like to vacuum the hair off. It actually works really well.

Energy be gone....

We all went to Monkey Joe's today. It was good for ALL of us! I relaxed in a comfy recliner and the boys got rid of some pent up energy! I'm excited to see how well they sleep tonight:) Great way to spend a Saturday!

Benny's Birthday!

It was Ben's Birthday on Jan 30th, and we had a perfect day. Ben's mom Made dinner, including ben's favorite dishes. I'm sure Ben was happy to have some great cooking on his Birthday. It was such a relaxing Sunday with PERFECT weather!!! After we ate dinner, we played with the boys outside. We all took turns on the tire swing that hangs from a giant Oak Tree in the yard. This is the same tree that Ben grew up swinging from. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENJAMIN! I love you.

After some very long work sessions...Vance can write his name all by himself. He is very proud of it, and so am I!

Amazing Weather

Me and the younger boys spent a while at the park today. It was a beautiful 70° day so we walked to the park down the road. I can't believe what a big boy Grey is! He was frustrated that he couldn't do everything Brogan was doing. I spent most of the time on the swings. It was so relaxing.
