Potty Chair

Paige was having a hard time going to she bathroom in her diaper today so I thought I would sit her on a potty chair and see if that would help. She had nothing to do with that so I put her diaper back on. The whole rest of the day she carried that potty around where ever she went. She would put it down, lift the lid and sit. She even carried it outside to watch Buck play.

Chalk Art Festival

Jacob and I escaped last weekend to go out together and we happened to go to the Market Place and there were a lot of artists making awesome chalk drawings in the parking lot. I guess they have been doing this every year but this is the first time I had seen it. The drawings were so good that we brought the kids back to see them too. They could not believe it was done with chalk and they loved looking at the pictures. They took pictures by their favorite chalk drawings. The band that played at Jacob's prom in High School played too and we got to hear their music while we looked.

Our Paris Girl

Sorry I can't figure out how to rotate the picture if anyone knows please set me know. Here is Paige's cute outfit she wears to church. She feels so pretty in it and she gets compliments all day. The funniest compliment was that they never knew Jacob would look so good in pink.

1st Grade Program

All of first grade at Veterans Elementary entertained the school and parents with four cute songs. Kaylie was singing all of them enthusiastically except for the part where they had to put on a baseball cap for "Take me out to the ballgame." Kaylie spent the whole song trying to get her hat on trying not to ruin her bow I had put in her hair. She finally got it on and sang the last sentence. She is so much fun and loves to make us laugh.


Buck came to live with us from Oregon last Thursday. The kids were so excited and they have loved playing and taking care of him. He is a good dog and he came to us well trained. He even can handle Paige and her attention. The girls waited up for his arrival on Thursday night counting the hours. Our family has grown even bigger and we are loving it. Buck was Jacob's puppy about five years ago and he moved with his parents to Oregon but now we have him back.

Disneyland Trip 2007

We decided to go to Disneyland with the cousins this weekend and we had an awesome time. Savannah's favorite ride was Space Mountain, Hannah's favorite ride was the Matterhorn, Kaylie's favorite was the Matterhorn, Nate's favorite was also Matterhorn but Paige's favorite ride was It's a Small World. Our favorite thing about Disneyland was watching the kids faces and having fun with them. They were all really good and Paige was entertained and good the whole day. We had a monkey leash on her so she couldn't run away and that worked good, she liked it and the kids took turns holding her tail. We didn't have to wait for more than twenty minutes for some of the rides even though there were so many people there. I am so glad that we were able to go and have fun together. We meet all the princesses, saw Fantasmic and rode everything we wanted to but Finding Nemo because it was never under a one hour wait. That will have to be for next time.


Here is Savannah at her first volleyball game. We are working on her serve but she is really enjoying herself. Her team won their frirst game and they were so excited. This is our first sports experience and I hope we have many more to come. I am just not sure we will have time for much else when everyone is involved. She practices after school every Tuesday and Thursday and her games are Saturday mornings.
