I haven't blogged in almost 10 months. That is way too long.

Jackson just turned 3 in March, and Amelia is already 15 months. Almost 16!

There will be major updates soon.

Stay tuned!

6 months

Ellie turned 6 months on July 11th. Where has the time gone?! This little girl has made me such a happy mama. She is such a happy little girl (except for when she's teething). I cannot wait to see how she grows in the next 6 months!

Lake Roosevelt 2012

We went with Billy's family to Lake Roosevelt for 4th of July weekend. We camped out (in the motorhome) and had alot of fun! Jackson LOVED the boat, and throwing rocks in the water was one of his favorite things. He also got to go tubing with mommy! And of course I took alot of pictures, enjoy!

The scenery was beautiful

Wow, it has been disgustingly hot outside lately. While I do prefer warmth over cold, I hate this kind of heat. We have been spending alot of time inside and swimming. Jackson is crazy tan. Ellie has been trying very hard to get up on all 4's. She's getting very close!

On a positive note, her stitches have completely healed and her scar looks great. We just found out that her plastic surgeon is moving out of state at the end of July, so unfortunately he probably won't be able to do her 2nd surgery. I'm very bummed about that, seeing as he is one of the best in our state, but there is just no way we can do it in the next couple of weeks.

Next week we are going to the lake and camping with Grandma and Grandpa Jones, Aunt Kim, Uncle Brandon, and Great Grandma and Grandpa Powell. It should be fun!

I'm a bit picture crazy ;)


This week I found out that a co-worker of mine tragically lost his wife. A death that could have so easily been prevented, but due to medical error, this young wife and mother lost her life so suddenly. It really nauseated me, thinking how fragile life truly is. Life can come and go in the blink of an eye and there is nothing anyone can do to change that. So my advice, love your friends and family and always show them how much you care for them, because you really don't know how long you have them. Even if your mad, always say 'I love you'.

I love all of my friends and family so so much and I am so grateful that each and every one of them are in my life.

House of Sickies

Ugh. Billy, Jackson, Ellie and I all have colds right now. I think it started with Jackson, and then because he doesn't like to cover his mouth, Ellie caught it. And because it's hard for Billy and I to not give the kiddos kisses, we caught it. Jackson has a runny nose and cough but luckily Ellie just has the runny nose for now. I hope it stays that way.

At least she's still happy!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!

Since Billy had to work today, we celebrated yesterday. We had a family bbq at the Jones house and my parents joined us. Swimming, games, and yummy food! I love spending time with our families and I am so lucky that we are able to do all of our holidays and events together!

I framed this picture for Billy

And  this one for my dad and Steve
