I'm Back

O.K. I left my blog for awhile but now I'm back at least for now. Here are a few highlights of our family happenings from the last several months.

Caleb Retires His Crown

Although Caleb still puts on his crown once in a while, he has given the "King" gig up for the "Cowboy" gig for now. He loves his guitar and I swear he is able to play chords. His strumming really sounds pretty good if you can get past his almost yelling his favorite lyrics of "I lub Sally and Lightening McQueen. I lub mommy and my brodders when they not mean".

Baby Girl

Gillian Loves her "dog, dog". Carlee is very, very good with her.

Just had to add a few pictures of gillian. She is changing so much everyday. She is still very sweet but has a little temper when it comes to Caleb. She thinks he is teasing her most of the time so she yells or squeals, grabs things back from him and sometimes even takes a swing at him. I think this is all because he plays really rough with her soooo.......not so sure she is going to be that little femine girl we thought she would be but we adore her either way. Besides, I have to stick up for myself around Caleb so she really is no different. oh ya! still no hair.

Garrett's 16th B-day at D-land

Don't Ask about this pic.

In February, Mary and I took Garrett and some of his friends to Disneyland overnight for his 16th birthday. We really had a lot of fun! We rode our favorite rides, ate at The Cheesecake Factory, stayed up really late and played a few pranks well a lot of pranks! We all decided that "what happens in D-land stays in D-land."

Spring Break at the Beach

We made a last minute trip to the beach during Spring break. We met up with the Watsons and had a super time. The weather was beautiful. Gillian loved playing and digging in the sand and she especially enjoyed eating it.

Beach Baby!

I love this picture. The little boys are
playing on the water's edge and Abby is
watching them a long way off. The mist
looks awesome!
