Mya shooting with the boys.

Watching Dad.

Getting shooting tips.
Alright.... I got it! 
Now thats a GUN!


We were just getting ready to leave for Gymnastics and Livia said..... "mom don't you want to get a picture of me? Im all ready for class and I look really cute!"
And of course I grabbed my camera.


Brian (my brother)we are so proud of you and we are so happy you are home from Iraq!! We love you so much!! What a long year!

I still can't get over the stories he told and the pictures I saw.

Here we were trying some of the delicious MRE's

It really wasn't that bad. I might be adding MRE's to my food storage. Its  amazing you can have a hot meal in seconds. 

Doesn't he just look tough! 
Me.... Not so tough!

Mya's 7th Birthday Party

For Mya's birthday we took her to the movies to see Space Chimps and she got to invite a friend (Charlotte).  She also wanted to have a big friend party at Pump It Up.  We had quite the turnout, and everyone had a blast... even the big kids (grown-ups).  Mya was especially excited that her Grammy was able to come for her birthday.

Mya is such a special child.  Heavenly Father knew to send her to us first.  She is always so kind and sweet to her sisters, and we are very thankful to have her in our family.  Happy Birthday my sweet Mya!  We love you so much!

It was so hard for me to get Mya to stand still for a picture. I feel pretty lucky I got this one.

Celine and Brynn... you'll never find one without the other.  They are stuck together like glue.

Of course Shawn would be in playing with the kids. He is such a big kid himself.
