Well Ryan and I were so lucky to be able to go on a Disney Cruise with my cousin Tyra and her husband Matt. We went to St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Disney's Castaway Cay!!!!What a wonderful, stressfree week we had. We are so greatful to Nana and Papa and the Wedikinds for watching our kids so we could take some much needed time for the 2 of us. What an amazing week and I want to do it again really, really, really soon!!!!!!!!!!
Wow I can't believe my baby girl is 5. She is in preschool and loves every minute of it. She is a very wonderful artist, loves to color, play with playdough, create amazing things in the kitchen when mom isn't looking and loves to be our little princess. She is such a girly girl but will rough house with dad and the boys! She is a great little sister and an even greater big sister!!! We LOVE you to pieces Bekah Boo!!!
Well he made it to the big 3. He is such an awseome little man and we love him to pieces. His brothers and sister know just what to do to make him yell and scream at them. They have it down to a science. I can picture Ryan being the same way:P We can't even image our family complete without him. I hope this year brings a potty trained little boy and maybe just a little less yelling:)Love you Lukie!!!
Well since it has been so long I thought I would give you a little update. Erik is in 8th grade and taller than his dad:)He is doing well in school and scouts and is making new friends every day. He is excited about starting seminary next year "YIKES" He is also the tallest Deacon in the Ward, Just to give you an idea of his size he is wearing size 12 1/2 shoes. I am thinking I am in real trouble!!! Jared is in 6th grade and still the jokester in the family, he is struggling with being a 6th grader and trying to turn his homework in on time but is loving being back with his buddies.He has a friend Christian who is so much like Jared and they love being together. He enjoys Art and Drawing and is always making games up on the computer and printing them out for he and Erik to play.He is very creative and I love it. Rebekah is in Preschool and the family Princess, She will be 5 next week and is so smart. She is such a good big sister and loves to play with Luke. She also loves Art and Drawing and has turned her bedroom door and the empty wall space in the living room her Art gallery. She is very happy and loves to play outside in the dirt with Luke making mud pies and getting wet and dirty but also loves to dress up like a princess and have tea parties in her room with whoever will join her! Luke is now 3 and all that comes with being "3". He is talking like he is a teenager already and trying to keep track of what he is up too is a full time job:P He loves to play with Rebekah and also loves cars, trucks, tools and MUD. Ryan is working hard to support our family and is the 2nd counsler in the Bishopric, he loves getting up early to excersice before work and then play like crazy with the kids when he gets home.He is such a great husband and I am so thankful for him. I am at home running kids around and trying to stay on top of the Laundry for 6 people. Wow I am so lucky to be the mom of such great kids and be a part of raising them in the gospel. They know so much about the scriptures and love to learn about the savior and his teachings. I don't know how it could get any better than that. I love that they teach me how to be patient.
Ryan is such a great husband. I am so thankful the Lord put him in my life. He is such a great provider for our family and is always trying to think of more things to do with us. He is great at his church callings and is very good at scripture study and prayer with our family. He is so great to have personal prayers with the kids, which they love.He is kind to his patients and a great DENTIST:)I am so greatful to know that I can depend on him to be there for me and the kids in all we do. He is such a great supporter of anything the kids want to try or do. Thank you Ryan for being such a great friend to me. Have a great Birthday!WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!
