So much fun!!!

I took the kids to get their pictures taken. It was an awful experience. Here are some good and some not so good pictures of them.

Anybody need a new shirt?

Have I ever spent $41.50 on a shirt in my life? Well if any of you need a new shirt and are looking to spend a lot- I know where you can get one.. And dont worry- it comes with the patches....


So Ashlynn was being a little crazy and ran to jump up on the couch. She didnt see the laptop and smacked her eye right on the corner of it. It's been a rough week.

Austin was much more cooperative at taking pictures than Ashlynn was so I got more of him. He looks like an old man in these pictures. I love it!

Easter clothes

Well I tried to get pictures of the kids in their Easter outfits, but I could never get a real good one with both of them at the same time. And Ashlynn wasnt that excited for me to take pictures anyway. She does this weird thing with her mouth when she smiles but she still looks cute.

A trip to Spokane

My mom and sisters and I decided to take a trip to Spokane and visit my sister and her kids.... So my mom took two of Ashley's kids and flew down on Thursday morning. My dad, Ashley and I and the other three kids drove down. I dont even have a word for the drive down... but the next day after we had all somewhat recovered, we decided that the drive was worth it. Ashlynn and Austin had fun playing with thier cousins. And it was fun to see Katie and Ryan's house.
We ended up splitting up the drive on the way home and stayed in Boise overnight on Monday and then finished the drive Tuesday. What a freaking drive... But we had a good time. It was fun to see all the kids together and to hang out with my mom and sisters. We are glad Katie and Ryan are moving back in a few months Yay!!!

Ashlynn was so excited to play dress-ups with Bailee. She woke up at 6:30 the morning after we got there and the first thing she said was, 'I want to go play dress-ups.

Halle and Austin

The three babies- Austin, Davis and Halle. I thought Austin was a smiley baby but Davis smiled the entire time- even after we found out he had pnemonia. Poor little guy.

I love this picture. Isaac and Gavin are so cute to Ash.

Yadda Yadda Yadda

Well I really dont have much to say. We havent been doing much, but I thought I would post some pictures that I found anyway and a little bit about the kids. (I feel like my posts are so boring, I really need to improve my blogging skills. All the ones I read are so great.) I'm not fishing for compliments, I am just warning you that it might be boring to read.

Ashlynn is just up to the usual, singing princess songs all day, changing her clothes to something that has princesses on it (usually her p.j.'s) and messing up her hair after my attempt to fix it. Some of my favorite things that she says are 'wishwish' for licorice and 'liplips' for lipstick and 'wandywand' for candyland. She talks really well, but its funny to hear her say some things.

Austin is 6 months and finally sleeping through the night!!! He is getting so big. He weighs 17 lbs. and is in the 80th percentile for heighth. He is the happiest little guy ever.

I will try and get a video of Ash and Austin playing together. It is so cute. Austy loves Ash and gets so excited to play with her. It' so cute to watch them play.

That's all for now. By the way, does anyone know an easy way to get a 2 1/2 year old to sleep in a bed and not a crib? And Katie, how is the whole room sharing going?


Ash and Isaac playing a game, I guess. It looks like they did something naughty and are scared.

Ashlynn found the bandaids.

Ash and Austy are ready for summer!!!!
