It's Great to be 8!

(Yes, I realize her bangs are stop thinking it!!)
Well she is 8 folks and I am an emotional wreck! This kid is amazing and full of LIFE! We have soooooo much fun when she is around! She tells the cutest (longest) stories and her laugh can brighten ANY day! She also is a mini "truck driver" as my parents used to say. She burps, laughs and giggles when we scold her. does a parent teach when they are trying not to laugh?
She was so cute this morning...she just couldn't wait to see what today would bring! We love you Ry and hope you have the BEST 8th birthday EVER!

It's Luke's Birthday!!! Hooray Hooray!

Can you believe my little guy is 6? We are so thrilled to have this little man in our family! He makes us laugh and smile daily! He is the BEST snuggler in the family and still tells me he loves me (hello - even in public) whenever he can!! He can figure anything out (just like his daddy) and loves to take things apart just to see how they work! What a special kid and we are lucky he is ours!

Happy Birthday Kiddo!
(love you more than chocolate milk!)

Get the horse trailer...this sweatshirt is down!

Little story to tell...
Kennedy comes up to us after a volleyball game VERY upset and begins to cry. I thought it was from her game, but no, it was about her favorite of all favorite sweatshirts! (she bought it up in Oregon with her Aunt Stacey) She left it on the back of her chair in 6th period. When school was over she ran back to that class to get it and her teacher says, "Oh shoot, I have some BAD new for you". Uh...apparently a rather LARGE male student (I pictured a gorilla for some reason-you will read why) put on the sweatshirt and started screwing around until the teacher told him to remove it because it wasn't his. The gorilla...I mean student and his friend began taking it off piece by piece! What? Are you kidding me?! What is wrong with kids today thinking that is okay? So naturally I had to become the "other Jessy" and tell this teacher I was expecting this student to replace the sweatshirt or he and his MOMMA wuz gonna deal with ME! Yowza! We have ordered a new one (not as cool as the original, but it will do) and this kid and his sidekick are paying for it!
Look at it though!!! Where the heck is the other sleeve? Sigh...what a TERD!

Sweet Home Alabama!

Reagan and I had a fun opportunity to fly to Bama Jama to see my parents and to help plant the flowers at the Temple! My mom has been in charge for a few years now and needed an extra hand and I jumped at the chance to help out! I have always wanted to do something like this ever since I helped out at the Portland Temple in my youth! It was really fun and Reagan and I both LOVED hanging with G&G Dunlop! The weather was delightful (hello I even got tanish) and the trees are all out for summer and flowers and bugs and was great!
