This is Tessa & her Grandpa Great. She is the newest great grandchild - #48!! Grandma passed away last week, so we traveled to Southern Utah to attend her memorial service & visit family. This was our second visit w/Grandpa actually. He refers to her as "his pal". He also tells me that Aubrey reminds him so much of my Mom. He always wants to visit with "the little red head". He & my grandma were married for 67 years - amazing!
Here's missy after getting home today - she loves to stretch out on the floor! Such a darling, chubby little sweetheart!
This is where Tess & I got to sleep last night! Why in the front room?
Because of this...
Here's the door to my bedroom!! We came home to a flooded bedroom & bathrooms last night! After putting our shop vac to good use and renting a steam cleaner - it's all cleaned just waiting to dry!! All because of a faulty toilet! Thank goodness it was clean toilet water - well as clean as the tank water can be - could have been a lot worse - that's just really gross.
Here's a pic of Luke eating his "numa-nums" aka M&M's. His absolute fav and in his own way telling me he doesn't want his picture taken!
Cleaned the church on Monday night! Fun times! We got to do it all by ourselves!! This is how little miss spent most of the evening!
These guys are troopers! They helped do all the trash cans! It was only about 800 degrees in the building!
Here's how missy has been feeling lately! Poor little girl! I can't help but kinda giggle when I look at this picture. She's just so dang cute and chubby!
Aubrey ran over to her, put the pacifier in her mouth and started to sing twinkle, twinkle little star. Tessa loved it!! She fell asleep! I was absolutely amazed! Can you spot the paci? It doesn't get any cuter than that!! Oh, and yes school started for Caleb this week! He hates the 1st grade! This morning walked him to the school door, he went in, teary eyed, and I turned to leave. I got about 3 feet when he comes running out of the school crying!! So I walk him to his door and talk to him and his teacher, some more - I've gotten to know her extremely well over these past couple of days! She reassures me again that once the day gets going Caleb does terrific. She tells me not to worry so I leave, of course with tears streaming down my face. He's made a friend already, loves eating lunch in the cafeteria, he just says, "school is way to freakin' long!" (I can't get him to stop saying that word! At least he has stopped calling people jackasses) I knew the transition to 1st grade would be hard - He's a stubborn kid - once he makes up his mind that the 1st grade isn't his own personal hell, I think he just might start to enjoy it! I'll post some pictures of him in his cute school clothes, once he's happy about going to school!
Such a sweet picture of my girlies! Hope they'll be best friends!
The other day I couldn't get little miss to stay asleep! In her bassinet, bouncer, swing - no go! Luke came over and wanted a drink, so I put Tess down on the couch & this is what happened!! Her cheeks are getting so chubby! Went to the market by myself w/ all 4 kiddos! It actually went really well! When the husband is out of town & you really need some milk, what else can you do?;)
I couldn't get Luke to sit still long enough to get a good picture this morning! This is the best I could do!
We spent our morning swimming in the backyard! It's actually under 100 degrees! Loving it!
I had to get Tess into this swim suit before she grew out of it! So, so cute!!
She is such a little sweetheart! It's funny that she's only been here a few weeks - I don't know what I ever did without her!
This is mine & Luke's means of communication! I hear a little voice from upstairs and try to figure out what he needs. He usually just needs to tell me if he bonked his knee or something! His favorite game by far is playing catch w/his daddy from downstairs to upstairs! I need to get a picture of that!
It feels so good in Vegas today! The kids are taking advantage by playing in the water in our front courtyard!
Here's little miss loving her bouncer! I thought about going hitting Target & maybe Kohls today. But, who am I kidding? I'm usually exhausted by the end of the day when I don't even leave the house! My mom and dad got their mission call! They are called to the family history library in slc! Yay! They are actually closer to me now! I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to my family. I hate not living close to anyone!
