Boring Spring Break....

Okay so nothing around here is boring...but we had a pretty uneventful spring break. I did a big order at Safeway on that Wednesday, Brandon had to work all week, and we had company come Thursday. Since we hadn't done anything fun, we decided to take our kids to the petrified forest. Though it's not the funnest place on earth, I think that everyone needs to go there at least once!!

The Beautiful Gilbert Temple & Happy Birthday to Brandon...

For Brandon's birthday this year we decided to take the kids down to tour the new Gilbert Temple.  Though I'm sure it wasn't his first choice of things to do on his birthday...we still had a great time and of course were amazed at the Temple's beauty.  One of the highlights of the day was meeting up with my awesome cousin, Debra Jo, who brought us cookies and a goody bag(and took this picture of us).  I'm not sure she knows how much our family adores her!!  After the temple we went to my brother Trav's house...then I sent poor Brandon on his way up the mountain with 10 of our kids while I stayed in the valley with my mom to a nieces baby shower. 

FAMILIES ARE FOREVER!!!

Long Time NO Blog...

 So it's been roughly a month and a half since I blogged last.  Lots has happened in that month and a half.  I will try to catch up over the next day or two.  But here is a start...

Zach turned 9 on January 6th!! We love our Zachy boy...he keeps us on our toes and is a happy boy that likes to have fun!!  We sure are grateful he is a part of our Eternal Family!! We love you ZACHARY Brandon MARTINEAU



 Our baby girl turned 3 on January 28th.  I cannot believe that my baby is 3!!  It's kind of weird to know that I'm out of the diaper stage for good.  Maron has been such a blessing to our family.  She keeps us laughing.  She loves PINK, her PINK cowgirl boots, cuddling with her Daddy, to play with her BEST friends, to sing primary songs, to wear DRESSES, and anything Princess!!

We love you Maron Kay!!

New Years Eve...

 Can hardly believe that another year has come and gone.  I swear I blinked and 2013 was over.  2013 was a GOOD year to us...We had 4 of our handsome boys get baptized, Tristen turned 16, Michael turned 12, Brandon started school, we have all been healthy, and the list goes on.  We truly are blessed!!  

To ring in the new year we had some friends over(Porters, Reidheads, and Bryces), ate some good food, and played some fun games.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year.  It was one of the most relaxed and enjoyable Christmas Days we've ever had.  Not sure if it's because we didn't have any upset kids this year or because we stayed home most of the day and just played with our kids.  2 of the highlights were getting to talk to Sister Rachel Hunt and Elder Macky Slade!!!

 Before the bomb went off:)

 Kids lined up waiting
 Maron got the pink hat she has been asking for!

We headed out to the ranch around 4:00 to help prepare Christmas Dinner.  It is always good to spend Christmas with those you love!!

Christmas Eve...

 This year we had kind of a quiet Christmas Eve.  We usually have Randy and Cynthia here with us and do a big dinner, but this year it was just our family and we had yummy sandwiches for dinner.  The kids all loved their PJ's!!
