Random Pictures!

My Grandma complained that I had not posted any pictures of the kids lately...so Grandma these are for you!!

Tanner with his new glasses

Ryker playing with sticks and whatever else he could find while the other kids were fishing.

All the kids in the backhoe with their Dad.

Eliza pushing Ryker around the house in his "car"..sometimes he likes it...sometimes he doesn't!

I am not sure but I think he wants me to pick him up:)

Ryker sure enjoyed homemade blueberry syrup on his waffles.

Ryker's scrunch face...too bad the picture is a little blurry

Coloring eggs as a family.

The end of May Tanner received his Bobcat and Wolf badges...way to go T!!!

Whew!!! I think I am caught up...for today at least!:)

Kindergarten Graduation!

Emma graduated from Kindergarten on May 25th. They had a slide show with pictures of different activites done throughout the year. Then they sang some of the songs they had learned and finally received their diplomas. It was a great night!

Walking through the arch and posing for a picture.

Emma and Mrs. Spiker...Mrs. Spiker is a fantastic teacher...we just love her! We are so grateful for her and all her hard work!

Jared and I were asked to make the set for graduation. After many, many, many hours of working on it...this is what we came up with. I think it turned out very cute and the most important thing is that Mary..Emma's teacher...loved it and is looking forward to using it for years to come. Whew!!!

This is the arch that each of the kids walked through after they got their diploma.

Little Sister!!!

When I was 16 my family moved next door to the Jestes. Jannae was not even in Kindergarten yet! We both had only brothers so we claimed each other as sisters! We have remained very close over the years. Jannae came and helped me for a week last summer after I had Ryker. She was able to come in March to spend time with us during her spring break for a week and be at Tanner's baptism. Words cannot even express how grateful I am for her. She is truly an angel!!! Love you Nae!

Eliza thought she needed a picture with Jannae too!

At Tanner's baptism.

Pinewood Derby- March 2011

Tanner had his first Pinewood Derby the month after he turned 8.

He was so excited!

Tanner designed and painted his car all by himself and was so proud of it. He had one of the slowest cars but did not even care..he was just happy to be there.

Tanner and some of his buddies from our ward.

Tanner's Baptism

Tanner was baptized on March 11th with his cousin Braxton!

Best buds!

Jon and Braxton.....Tanner and Jared

All the sisters sang at the baptism...it was very sweet!

Britlyn, Emma, Berkley, Brecka and Eliza

We were so blessed to have so many of our family and friends there for Tanner on his special day. We are so grateful for all of their love and support!

Best Halloween Surprise ever!

We were supposed to go down to Logan to do Halloween with our friends and my brother and sister-in-law but were not able to so Paul and Mallory decided to come and surprise us. We loved having them here for the weekend. It was a wonderful surprise!!!! Thanks Paul and Mal!
And just because it is so sweet..
Eliza was singing I am a Child of God and Follow the Prophet to Ryker. I love how intently he is listening to her.
Awwh...too cute!
