Day 18

June 24th, 2012


Strawberry season!!!!!! One of my favorite treats now is fresh strawberries and grapenuts. 

Day 17

June 23rd, 2012


I'm 30 weeks pregnant!  Baby is the size of an English cucumber.  Baby has been hiccuping lately.

Day 16

June 22nd, 2012


Today we had a gleaners pick up.  Paul brought us a whole box of ripe bananas.  I was going to throw most of them out but Jenea suggested we dehydrate them - so I recruited Jolie and Jadon to help me.  It was a great suggestion, they turned out wonderfully! 

Day 15

June 21st, 2012


Today I bought a brush for Mia's fur.  It gets everywhere!  She really enjoys being brushed by Jenea. 

Day 14

June 20th, 2012


Paul recently set up our swing.  The children LOVE climbing on it, which I discourage of course.  Here is a rare moment they are using it as it's intended to be used.

Day 13

June 19th, 2012


Jude HATES taking naps even though he NEEDS them.  Often I'll put him down for nap just to go in his room and find him out of bed playing with toys.  Today he snuck upstairs and I found him sleeping here curled up on this chair.

Day 12

June 18th, 2012


Found this message on the fridge today. It really applies to our families life this year - it's full of miracles, which we are VERY grateful for!

Day 11

June 17th, 2012


Today is Fathers-day.  Paul had to make his own dinner because I'm sick, besides that, I have no idea how to cook stake.   

Day 10

June 16th, 2012


Jenea spends hours in her room reading the cat warrior books - making lists of the cat warrior clans and drawing the cat warriors. 

Day 9

June 15th, 2012


Jadon and Jolie like to play dress-up together.  Princess Jadon escaped to take a ride on his scooter - out front, in front of the whole neighborhood. 

Day 8

June 14th, 2012


Jadon got into my black nail polish and decided to paint his own toes.  Good thing I caught him when I did.

Day 7

June 13th, 2012


It's strawberry season in Oregon!  The girls are helping us process them.   

Day 6

June 12th, 2012


Tonight instead of swimming we took our family to a park.  They brought their bikes and scooters.  I got my walk in. 

Day 5

June 11th, 2012


My children really enjoy playing with silly puddy.  They enjoy it so much I find it stuck to walls, tables, the floor, and their clothing and hair.  Sometimes I have to wonder at my sanity allowing them to play with the stuff. 

Day 4

June 10th, 2012


It was a beautiful sabbath.  After church we went to the temple and took a tour of the grounds and the new visitors center.  Funny thing is the missionary couple who gave us the tour happened to know Paul's paternal grandparents.  They were in their ward in Coos Bay for several years.  Small world it is in the church.

Day 3

June 9th, 2012


Tonight we all slept over at Grandma and Grandpa Grahams.  They watched the children while Paul and I went to the temple.    

Day 2

June 8th, 2012


Tonight just after I got the children to bed we lost power.  That was the end of bed time.  We got out the flash lights and hung out for about 45 minutes till the lights went back on.  We still don't know what caused the outage.

Day 1

June 7th, 2012


Today is Jadon's 3rd birthday!  To celebrate we took the children to JJ Jump then out to lunch.  It was a great day!

Day 365

June 6th, 2012


I did not take a picture today so I thought I'd post another picture from our Wildlife Safari trip.  This is Jolie, Jude and Jaren getting ready to get on the old school bus to ride to the bear encounter.   This was all of my children's very first ride on a school bus.

Day 364

June 5th, 2012


Jenea found something fun to do with a big old box - ride it down the stairs. 

Day 363

Jaren is making one of our favorite kinds of muffins - Moose Muffins, which we will eat next Muffin Monday.

Day 362

June 3rd, 2012


Jaren in his favorite chair - participating in one of his favorite activities.  First thing he does in the morning is read, during quite time he reads, before bed he reads, between chores and home schooling he reads, in the car he brings books to read.

Day 361

June 2nd, 2012


Jolie and the little neighbor girl Shayla were playing with sidewalk chalk.  Jadon slipped in it, then Shayla  decided to "chalk" Jadon even more.  He was pretty upset about it; but he did get a bath because of it, which he LOVES.

Day 360

June 1st, 2012


When we go on walks Jude likes to climb the signs. 

Day 359

Tonight all 5 children thought it would be fun to sleep in daddy's tee shirts, so they did!
