Families are Forever!

This was the best family picture my friend got from Andrew's sealing. I think it turned out really good. I love that Travis has a wheat thin in his hand. My sister said I look like a "mom." Every time I look at this picture, I can't believe how blessed we have been!

Easter Plus

The flash on our camera needed to get fixed, so we only got a few bad/blurry pics of the kids in their Easter outfits. Andrew is getting so big that you can barely see Aubs. I can't believe how big these kids are getting.

We have been using our old camera to take pictures while our newer one gets fixed. Aubree loves taking pictures with it. This was my favorite one she took out of the almost 100 pictures she took (there was at least 10 self shots).
Goggle boy is back!

Andrew was needing a haircut. The above picture is before and the picture below is the after. He looks so much older. Such a handsome boy!

Love this girl. She is growing up too fast.
Aubree got her kindergarten shots this week. Even though she doesn't start school for another year, the doctor recommended getting them earlier rather than later. She was a tough girl, but did milk with a little limp for the rest of the day.
Aubree is such a sweet girl. Eric and I headed over to Seattle this last weekend to look for housing and left the kids at my parents and sister's. Aubree was in heaven with her cousins. She got to play in her first soccer game and loved it.

Funny Trav!
We have been getting nicer weather and the kids live outside and in any dirt they can find.
These next few pictures are from Easter. Aubree during the easter egg hunt. It was too cold outside. I love Aubree's outfit.
Tanner used a random Jenga box as his easter basket. He still has it full of his eggs.
Travis didn't want to collect eggs when he could start eating candy. We even tried to give him a head start.
Andrew had his 6 month appointment this week. He is almost 20 pounds now. He is loving solid foods and is so full of personality.
Tanner and Aubree had fun dying eggs with their cousins.

Our April fools treat we made this year. Last year we did the cupcakes that were actually meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and this year we did a "hamburger." Aubree and Tanner had so much fun making them and tricking their Dad's classmates.
Applebee's has kids meals for .99 on Wednesday's, so my sister and I met with all our kids. They had so much fun and ask all the time that to go again.

Life is good. I am almost halfway with the pregnancy now and I feel like the baby is growing sideways instead of out. My love handles are growing more than my belly. In the last few days I have started to feel the baby move. It is so cool!

Tanner's Anniversary!

We celebrate the anniversary of the day each one of our kid's was sealed to us in the Temple. We have cake and have a family celebration day, to celebrate being an eternal family. Today, 3 years ago, Tanner was sealed to us. Tanner is such an awesome boy and such a blessing to our family. He adds so much spice and life to our family and keep us laughing. We are so grateful for temples and to have Tanner sealed to our family.

6 Months!

Today, our little Andrew is 6 months old. I can't believe how quickly it has gone by. Andrew is the sweetest little boy. He is almost 18 pounds now (he has his appointment next week, so I am not exactly sure). He rolling both directions and is getting pretty close to sitting. Andrew is LOVED by his sister and brothers. They fight over sitting closest to him and being able to hold his hand. He lights up whenever he sees his siblings. Andrew is such a good natured and happy baby. People always comment to us on how happy/nice he is. He has started to stick his tongue out all of the time. I love his smile! We are so grateful to have Andrew in our family!

#5... Seriously!

We proved the Dr's wrong again!

I am due in September. I have had three doctor's appointments and have been able to hear the the babies' heart beat each time. It is so cool to be able to experience this again. It is still unreal to us. We truly have been so blessed!

At my appointment yesterday, I was worried that I was showing enough for how far along I am. The PA is a friend from my ward and she did a quick ultrasound to put me at ease. That is the picture above. You really can only see a hand and head, but she said everything was perfect as far as she could tell. I am just carrying this baby differently (uterus is tipped back, I guess).
