T.J. is Home!

T came home from California on February 2nd and we all made it to the airport to see him. I took a lot of pictures so here are a bunch of them!
T & Leann

T & Pops

Meeting Izabelle for the first time

D was really excited

I think he still was a little nervous though

Elder Ford

My cute niece Brooklyn

My sweet nephew Isaac & Dyllan showed up in the same outfit, Shawn White of course, so we had to get a picture of the two of them.

Of course Peyton's tongue is hanging out, here he is with his sign

Some of the Ford boys, and the Boom

So good to see the Elder didn't turn wierd on us

D looks huge!

My beautiful little girl with her daddy!

It didn't take Peyton long to warm back up to T

We could not believe Izabelle liked TJ! Not because of T but because she doesn't like anyone, especially people she doesn't see regularly.

She did so great!
The boys with their very proud mom. I hope to have a picture like this someday with my two RMs.
The girls all made banners and posters the night before and we blew up balloons and cut up plastic tablecloths to tie all over and even a banner for the overpass. Everything was decorated really well.Welcome home Elder Ford!

A Little Bit of Boom

This little stinker loves to climb! While I make dinner she will climb up the back of the couch and lean over the other side of the counter and yell at me. It's the same MAAAAM that she is always yelling at me and it is adorable (most of the time). So I got out the camera and she posed so nicely for me.

She's just not as sure about getting down.

I had to document this awesome bed head too.

She is a really crazy sleeper.

Justin's Birthday

Since Justin's birthday fell on a Sunday this year, we went out to dinner the night before to celebrate. It was just the two of us and it was so nice, we don't go on very many dates without the kids. THE BIG 28!
We go to my parents for dinner most Sundays so my mom made him a cake and we sang to him for his actual birthday.
Boom was happy to help her dad blow out the candles!
My kids and some siblings making it a party for J-town

She loves her Daddy, and knows exactly how to work him already. We're in for it.

Happy birthday to the most handsome man alive! He is my best friend and I love him more than anything. He works so hard for our family and I am so proud of him for accomplishing so much in school and work. The families he works with love him, he is so good at what he does. I can't wait for graduation in April so that at least mortuary science school will be done and maybe we can spend a little more time together without books and studying flash cards. He is such a great man and I am so lucky to have him as my companion forever! Happy birthday Sweets!

Just a Lazy Day

Sometimes it's nice to just have a lazy day at home with nothing you have to do and nowhere you have to go. This was one of those days so I took the camera out to snap some quick pictures. Peyton must have been sleeping again.

I love having lazy days every once in a while to just stop and enjoy hanging out with the kids.

My cute little girl is getting too big too fast! She's watching a movie on our little portable dvd player. I could seriously just squeeze her all day long, so happy she's my little girlfriend!

Petey, getting into everything! If the boys can't reach something they will stack things and climb to get to it instead of asking for help. I think my kids have a little too much independence in them sometimes. I guess it's better than being dependent on me for everything.

I put the legos up high in the playroom so that they wouldn't get them out anymore until Izabelle is older and won't choke on them. They don't love that idea so they tried to get them themselves.

Being a mom is the best job in the world!

Dyllan's Birthday


Having a five year old makes me feel old!

My cute boys! I'm not quite sure why Peyton is in his underwear, my kids seem to hate wearing clothes.

He's so big!
Peyton & Izabelle were happy to help and D was so good to let them help him open presents.

He got a big Ham spaceship like the one on Toy Story 3,

A couple of coloring books, (all three kids love to color)
A few Shawn White shirts for Summer,
a new pair of Jordans,
a nun chuck from Peyton so both the boys can play on the wii

and one of their favorite movies, Little Rascals. After we opened presents and got ready for the day we let Dyllan decide what he wanted to do and he chose to go to see Yogi Bear in the theaters. The kids love going to movies. It was pretty good, at least the parts that I got to see, Izabelle can't sit still so I chased her down the isle back & forth. When we got home Peyton and Izabelle were exhausted. I guess the excitement of D's birthday wore them out.

After the kiddos took a nap the family all came over for cake, cookies & ice cream. The family is getting so big that we barely fit everyone in the house!

Happy birthday Dyllan, D-train, Kronk, Walter, D! You are the smartest 5 year old I know. You act like you are 15 and like to hang out with the old people and actually get along with them really well. You are so good with your little sister and are working hard to be the good example for your brother who looks up to you so much. I love how sensitive you are and how much you care about everyone around you. Thank you for all that you teach me everyday. I love you very much and am so thankful that I get to be your mom!
