When the big kids are at school...

We Play!!!

Eliza wanted to take we did!...and to my suprize it was actually alot of fun.

And then she wanted some all by herself!

What a sweetheart! I just love this picture of her. It totally fits her personality.

And when she is tired...she will go in her room and tuck herself into bed for a nap...if only bedtime was that easy!

Happy Birthday Busy!

Eliza turned three last Tuesday. We had a little birthday party/FHE with Uncle Jon and Aunt Kassies's family. It was alot of fun!

She wanted to blow out the candles all by herself and actually knew what to do this year.

Things we love about Eliza:
*Her giggles...they are so contagious!
*She is always so BUSY!..she never holds still (hence the nickname)
*Loves to snuggle and sing "I Am A Child of God" to baby brother
*Always skips or hops wherever she goes...never walks!
*Her natural fun!
*Her fun-loving personality
*She loves to be a "little shadow"
*She loves to read books

My Handsome Boys

Tanner is thrilled to have a little brother! He wanted me to take a picture of just the boys in their matching suits and ties from Paul and Mallory's wedding.

The girls could not be left out. They said they needed a "best sisters" picture!

Back to School Pictures 2010!

Tanner is in the 2nd grade this year at Syringa.

His teacher is Mrs. Remark.

Emma is at Syringa this year too.

She is in Kindergarten and has the

wonderful "Mrs. Spiker" (Tanner's kindergarten teacher)

Emma is so excited to be at the "big kids" school and

get homework! (We will see how fun she thinks homework

is as the year progresses.)

The night before school starts Jared gives the kids back to school blessings. This year after he had given the three oldest kids blessings and we were kneeling down for family prayer, Eliza started getting all upset and told Jared that baby brother needed a blessing too! So he gave Ryker a Father's blessing as well. It was a very tender moment for us.
