It's been so long I couldn't remember how to blog a new post!!!!

Sawyer Started Preschool!!! I can't believe my baby is old enough to go to school:)He was so excited to start school and ride the bus with his Brother and Sis. This kid makes me laugh hard I was so worried about him going to school having yet to figure out a few key things like inside voice and sitting still and inside voice- those of you that know Sawyer totally get what I'm saying:) but he has been just fine and he tells me that his "Teacher" has to always tel him to "Get back on your letter Sawyer" so maybe he still needs a little work on sitting still HAHA!!! I just love this kid and wish I could keep him home with me always but like his Bro. and Sis. he has to grow up too.
This is a pic of Sawyer and the best bus driver ever!!! Seriously Sawyer is so excited to go to school every day- He must get that from his dad!!! LOL
In front of his class room.
Off to school!!
Talmage had his first "Pinewood Derby" He did so great he took second place. I was so proud of him, he worked so hard on his car and actually did it pretty much himself with just a little help from Dad( since mean Mom wouldn't let him use the band saw!!!). The car was awesome seriously looked like it was a muscle car from the eighties cracked me up!

May happenings!! 2010

Saturday we hiked "Hickman's Bridge" It was so much fun and surprising how much easier it is without having a child in the backpack or snugglie:) This was the first year that Sawyer hiked the whole thing on his own and we had to practically run to keep up with him.

Talmage at his art show. The elementary put on an Art Night to show off some of the art projects that the students have been working on this year. Talmage's class worked with pottery and they all made a pot. They also drew pictures and displayed pictures and stories from the first of the year to the end of the year-pretty amazing how much they grow and learn!!

This is how I let my three year old play outside with pajama top, diaper, and high heals O'h and don't forget the sword! And yes it makes me really sad that I have to include diaper on my stubborn 3 year old!!!!!!! Any tips or ideas??

The newest baby cousin "Greyson Gregory Lyman" Soo cute!!!

Laine's spring dance recital. I couldn't get my camera to focus and flash right so the pics are not very good- I've decided that anything that's in a gym or auditorium I can just forget good pictures. Laine danced two dances one to "Lolly pop" and the other to "You've got a friend in me". It was really cute and she did such a good job!!!!

Class of 2010

So these pics are not in order- you would think that after doing this for a few years I would remember which pictures to upload first but I never can so you get it all backwards-It's all good:)

After Laine's graduation I asked her where she wanted to go out to lunch to celebrate her big day. I thought she would say some fun restaurant but no she said she wanted "Gifford house berry pie" and Subway. I'm like O.K. , so we called Grandma and asked her if she wanted to have lunch with us and off we went to the Park for a fun lunch. I really think it was more about the monkey tree and seeing Gma than it was the food:) Good times!!!!

I know not a great picture but I am never in any of the pictures and since this is how I scrapbook I wanted Laine to know that her Mom is a part of pretty much everything even if it's not documented:)

Laine with two of her cute friends that she goes to school with Whitney and Kate.

Laine showing off her luau attire. Since Laine already had a flower in her hair they gave her one for her wrist and a bandanna skirt and a lea she was soooo excited!!!

They stood on a surfboard and tossed a beach ball back and forth and the teacher asked Laine what the best thing she learned this year was and she told them the sound of the letter "B" and then they asked her fav. color and she said "pink". It was all really fun and cute it's crazy to think she'll be in kindergarten next year.

If I did this more than every six months!!!!!

O.k so let me start off by saying that yes, I am aware that I am not on top of things when it comes to blogging- and no I'm probably not going to get any better.
Sawyer and Laine both had birthdays in April so lots of parties to celebrate Sawyer is 3 and Laine is 5--- I know crazy!!!!

On Laine's birthday she went to lunch with two of her friends it was lots of fun!!

So the next group of pics were actually a week after Easter but it was so cold on Easter weekend that we waited until it got warm to roll easter eggs and have a picnic. Brando knew of a great spot where there were lots of awesome egg rolling hills. The kids had sooo much fun climbing hills and dragging Dad up the hill. We had bbq and flew kites and like I said
Lots and lots of climbing!!!

Easter egg hunt at Grandma and Grandpa Jensens house.
It was pretty fun watching the kids look for Easter eggs this year. Talmage is a little taller and could find them a lot easier this year although he had a few challenges and Sawyer was awesome at finding them the little stinker would find them all before you could even turn around and Laine bless her heart it's a good thing she's cute because she almost had to trip over the Easter eggs to find them!!! They crack me up my cute kids!!

Sawyer and his CARS cake. He loved the cake he would just sit by the table with the cake on it and say "just a little taste?" and then he would try to move the cars on the cake and say "stuck" pretty dang funny!

I'm THREE!!!!!

Easter Morning 2010

Coloring Easter eggs!

Easter egg hunt at capitol Reef 2010

The cousins came to visit a few days over spring break so of course good weather means "MONKEY TREE" My kids loves going down to Capitol Reef and playing on the Monkey Tree, it's a pretty cool tree if I might add.

Talmage at the "Spring Review"He was so funny the night before he could hardly sleep he was so nervous about singing and dancing in front of a big crowd that little clown he was so funny and I'm pretty sure he wasn't nervous AT ALL!!!!! I love this kind of stuff:) and sorry about the pic my camera was doing some funny stuff so the pictures not that great. Tal is the one in green.

O.K. so I'll try to do better next time and not wait six months to update!!!HAHA LOL LOL WHATEVER!!!!!

Halloween 09

We started Halloween out in Bicknell-went trick-or-treating at Grandma and Great Grandma's houses and then headed for Fayette. It was Seths big 19th birthday. We had a party for him lots of fun. Laura just got home the day before from her surgery so Katie, Ang and I helped with the dinner. I think every present Seth got was ties or socks and white shirts- HA! HA! He loved it, besides what else do you get a 19 year old?!! We then took the kids to get their year supply of candy:) We had lots of fun. Thanks again to the Fayette clan:)
Laine, Sawyer and Tal
I think we traumatized Sawyer dressing him up as a girl-not a feminine bone in that kids body it was funny!! Laine was the cutest little witch ever and Tal saved the day by being our Knight in shining armor

Macho, Macho Man!!!!!

I tried to get all the kids going to the door-But they're too fast!!! They are all their you just can't tell it's them:)

So dang cute!!!

Happy Birthday Talmage #7

We had a fun family party for Talmages Birthday! Lots of his cousins and aunts and Uncles and Grandparents came for dinner and cake and icecream. This was the first year that Talmage has a friend birthday party and it was lots of fun. He picked ten of his friends and took them to the movie ( I know I'm crazy ten 7 year olds at the movie all sugared up on popcorn, candy and pop)The movie was "Partly Cloudy with a chance of meetballs" It was a blast! I do have pictures of his friend party but I'm missing a lot of pictures like first day of school Tal and Laine so hopefully they'll get found and I can post them-atleast have them because that makes me super sad if they are lost!!!!Thanks to all his friends and family that made his birthday so much fun:) Once again he was so spoiled-or well loved!!Thanks:)
