Won't Wanna Miss This!...

 For the few of you that actually care that I blog...I Can't believe it's been a month since my last post.  But as you read below you will totally understand why I haven't had the time!  These picture are not in order but I'm too lazy to care:)

 Rachel opened her call here at our house!  PARAGUAY!! Super excited for her...we will miss her like crazy but know that she will be an AMAZING missionary!

LITTLE LEAGUE!!...Need I say more! 

 Aunt Tara helping Miles hit


Porter received his Arrow of Light!  And as Cubmaster I am super excited for the break that summer brings from scouts!
 Super proud of this boy!

 Love coming home to find this in my bed!  LOVE IT!!

 Maron, Porter, Morgon(sideways), Miles, and Amelia

Ciara invited the girls to go to a Tea Party out at Aunt Sylvias.  They had a BLAST!!
 Millie, Payton, Ciara, Eva

LOVE getting to spend time with this guy...which hasn't happened much over the past couple of months but that will be changing soon as the job he is working is coming to an end!

Ok so we have become really good friends with the AMAZING Burns Family.  Mike and Robyn, along with their 3 oldest kids, were baptized back in January.  At that time we didn't know them, but since then we have become inseparable.   They seriously have such an amazing story!  We will forever be grateful for their friendship!!
 Out fishing at the ranch!!

I Turned 34!!!
My awesome friend, Emma Williams, brought me this amazing birthday cake...and it was amazing!!! 

My hubby bought me these beautiful flowers from my sister Jami's new flower shop!  

Did I mention that we not only love fishing out at the ranch but we love Elder Johnson!  
 Miles and Johnson
 Maron with her future Husband...THE Elder Johnson!

 Porter Ran Track!

 Tristen Broke ALL FOUR FINGERS in his left hand!  Yep that's right folks...all four!!  He was goofing off in PE and did a flip on the high jump mats and came down on his hand wrong.  He ended up needing 2 pins in his pinky and they just reset the rest...warning...the following pics are kind gross!!

 Can you tell which hand is broke??

 After surgery...lets just say the pain meds were working GREAT!!!

We took him to get it casted last Wednesday and I had to grab a photo before he got his cast on!!!

Brandon got to go fishing at Lake Powell with my brothers.  Brandon caught the biggest fish of the weekend!  He was pretty proud.  They said it just wasnt the same without my brother Jake there and of course without my Dad!!

It's GaRdEn time again!!  I love working in the garden.  I'm not going to lie...it's just not the same without my Dad there, but I can promise you that we have felt him there with us!!

 Grandma Tenney with Taelee, Mallori, Maron, and Rudger
 They LOVE to help!!

 It was Mother's Day!  I personally think Mother's Day is completely overrated!!  It does make me reflect on what my mom has taught me and helps me remember why I am SO lucky and blessed to have the amazing mother I do!  Not sure how I would survive without her!!

 My beautiful flowers from Brandon.  There were 12 daisies and each one had a tag on it with my kids name on it!!  

And THAT is ALL that has been going on in our little corner of the universe!!!

Oh my holy cow! You have had a busy month!!!! I haven't blogged for a month because my computer was broken...not because I've been as busy as you. You crazy girl! You amaze me--you always have. I think it's so sweet Brandon gave you 12 daisies with your kids' names on them! I knew daisies were your favorite flower, but I never thought of Gerber daisies...when he gave you the first bouquet of daisies BACK IN THE DAY when you got engaged, were they regular white daisies, or Gerber daisies? Just wondering.

The 4 broken fingers are so SAD!

I can't believe you make time for gardening. Holy heck.

I remember your dad with a shovel digging a water line or fixing something outside at the ranch, and wearing a big old sun hat--I'm sure it's not the same without him, like you said.

Your mom looks great.

Maron is so cute fishing.

Way to go on the Arrow of Light, Porter! And I can't believe you have time to be the cubscout leader.

Is there anything you can't do? YOU INSPIRE ME!

Oh mylanta you have been busy! Seriously, what is up with the month of May? 1-That cake looks incredible, 2-The picture of your bed makes me feel guilty that I can't handle two kids in my bed, and 3-having a girls' tea party is a fun idea!

KaNdRa and JaReD said...

Way to be super woman and making me feel like a bag of lazy bones! j/k.

Love that you take the time to blog, even if it is every month or whenever you have time it is great to get a little update on your life. Looks like you have been busy busy, but how can you not be with all those wonderful kiddos of yours. Love the daisies Brandon got you, still remeber the ones he gave you in the balloon when we were roomates, glad he still keeps up on the tradition. Tristens hand looks horrible, poor kid must of been in lots of pain. Hope it is healing nicely. How fun that you get to garden as a family. I love gardening, I actually have one this year, can't take all the credit cause my father inlaw did all the planting so I am just doing the upkeep, but it is great. Kids love it too, they love coming out and helping me water, helping pull weeds and now helping pick whatever actually grows haha. We got tons of tomatoes and the kids love checking them daily to see if any are ready to pick, so gardening really can be a fun family thing to do, plus you get the bonus of not having to pay for fresh fruit and veggies. Love having sleeping kids in my bed, love that you let all yours in your bed and take the time to photograph it. You are seriously amazing! Keep up the blogging, you still have some dedicated readers. Love ya!!!!
