Sometimes I feel like I have triplets. These 3 are always together.
It was hard to get a good shot of everyone. This was the best I could do.

SNL was awesome last night!
And I'm reminded why I have such a crush on Justin Timberlake.

Happy Birthday Seth

Seth turned 33 today! We started the day with breakfast in bed (of course all the kids joined in), then that night it was dinner(just the two of us) at Royal India. He has been thinking of nothing else for months.
I feel so lucky to be married to such a wonderful person! Great husband, father and friend!
Love you Sethy!!

Are You Kidding me #28

I can't believe it, but this is Claire at 20 months when the twins were born.And here are the twins this morning...also 20 months!
I can't even imagine having a baby right now let alone 2.
For a 3 month period I had 4 kids under 4!!!
Which is why that time of my life now seems like a blur.
I remember it, yet I don't. It's weird.
I just pray my kids are forgiving of all my faults. Because having 4 so close together caused a lot or craziness at times.
But I wouldn't change a thing!

St George 2011

We were able to get away last weekend for a little family vacation and it was so fun!
One day we went hiking in Snow Canyon where Bella said "mom! This is the best vacation ever!!".
The trip consisted of hiking, playing at the park, eating, swimming, swimming and more swimming. Bella was in the pool for almost 2 days straight and went a full shade darker!
We also got to spend some time with the cousins since they were on their way to California.
And since my dad was also there he offered to watch the kids one night so we could slip away and have some alone time. It was great!
The only picture we got as a family and you can't see Syd on Seth's back.

Slice of Heaven

Driving to St George a few nights ago I was stuck by this amazing love I have for my kids.
We were trying to get them to fall asleep (it was night) so we had a primary cd playing and it was totally quite.
All I could think was I wish I could save this time in my life forever. I love that my kids need me and this love I felt for them at that moment was so overpowering.

Kindergarten Program

Last week Bella had her end of the year Kindergarten program. The day before she came home and said (I had just come home from the hospital) "Mom I know you can't come cause you're sick. It's ok if no one comes from my family." So sad.
I was feeling so blessed that I was out of the hospital and well enough to see her preform.
She did a great job!
Singing her heart out

Hospital Stay

Last week I had really bad abdominal pain so after 4 days, and one where I couldn't even stand to get out of bed, I finally went to the doctor.
At first they thought it was my appendix but after a CT scan they determined it was Crohnes Disease and wanted me to have colonoscopy to make certain.
I ended up staying the night at the hospital.
Luckily I have great family, friends & my ward who watched my kids, brought meals and came to visit.
Yesterday I found out the results of the biopsy and it turns out there is very little trace of crohnes and it was just a bad infection.
I am feeling so thankful!!!
