Today I had an adventure I haven't had in a long time. I had to take all three of my little ones to the grocery store with me. I realized once I was in there that I hadn't done that in years! I sure miss my baby sitters this week and I now recognize how much I really do use them. Thanks so much Marci and Chloe for all you do. I might add.. Garrett is an excellet baby sitter as well. Last night after the Blue and Gold Cyrus and I had a church meeting so Garrett went home with the kids, played some xbox, read scriptrues, said prayers (hopefully brushed teeth) and put them in bed. So grateful for all of them stepping up and especially NOT complaining, when needed.

It's been a wonderful day with my hubby home and all... we got a few projects done. We worked on the back yard and fixed the fence so that Alex won't get out and Cy went out with me on a shoot I had. I love it when he comes with me.... makes for a much better time for me anyway. Heres the picture of the day. It happens to be me this time. Cyrus has an 85L lens that he loves and so I get to be his model from time to time. He snapped this one while we were waiting for my clients to show up.

The Stringhams dropped the dog off last night and he was so much bigger. It's crazy how fast they grow! I THINK we are still happy to have a dog... he better behave or else he's getting the boot!
It was a great day at church but I did miss my girls. I'm grateful they have this opportunity to stay with their grandma for a week. Garrett is stepping up and becoming my wonderful helper. Charly EVEN relies on him now.
After we got home we were anxious to put Cyrus' desk together. You can't really see it from the pics but we love it!
Charly was funny because she thought we were headed to her friend Eliza Simms house. She was happy to play with her cousin but was slightly confused that Lishy wasn't there. Even the next day she kept asking when we were going to go to Lishy's house. After the long drive we pulled up to our house... everyone happy to be home but Charly.. "this is NOT lishy's house!"
Today we all realized we will never make it as pro bowlers. None of us scored over 100. Chloe and I tied with the highest score of a 92! Charly tied with her father with an 85. Nothing too impressive but we sure had fun bowling with Grandma!
We arrived at Grandma's and the kids helped make fruit kabobs and egg rolls. Soon after lunch was eaten they were ready for a tea party. Grandma always makes sure she has a tea party with her girls. (if the boys are lucky they can participate as well).
Today we also got the chance to go see Nellie's salon that she works at. She gave Marci and Charly haircuts. She does a wonderful job and works in a really nice place. Thanks again Nellie! You're the best!
I might also add this day how much I love my husband. We've been married for 14 years and I'm so happy he is mine. Every day together we get to know each other better and I love everything about him. He's so good to me and always makes sure I know how much he adores me. Love you MUCHISMO Cyrus.
After that... we basically chilled out with family. I don't think I took pics of any of my kids today but I did get a few more of Julia's baby. Here is one of Grandma Price with her newest grandbaby. She made this cute corduroy suit for him to be blessed it.... it was so cute. AND... this baby is only a month old... look at those cheeks!

We had a yummy dinner with loads of yummy deserts! I even had the chance to take some picks of baby Lucas.

Happy Birthday Cyrus! Today my handsome man caught up to me in age! We are now both now 36. We stopped in St. George to take a break from driving, watched the kids jump the canyon a few times then all 8 of us slept in two beds. The kids were really good and don’t seem to mind the cramped beds. We all woke up and wished Cyrus and Happy Birthday! I bought him some cams and was really excited to give them to him so he opened up presents on the way up here. He was very happy with the two cams to start his collection. I love that he has been excited about climbing because my kids are loving it as well.
I talked to mom on our way up and she met us at Denny’s for a birthday breakfast. It was a lot of fun to see mom, Aunt Jean and Quinn. My kids were so excited to see Quinn. He looked so good. He’s handsome, funny, happy, confident and seems to be turning into a great young man.
After breakfast Cyrus headed up to Idaho Falls with the kids and I stayed with Mom to go to Marilyn’s baby shower. I was so glad I was able to go and see her 9 months pregnant. She looks so good… she has a big belly but that is all. It was great to see her people. You can tell she is so loved and is surrounded by so many good people.After the shower mom and I headed up here to I.F. It was fun to spend some time with her driving home. Everytime we drive that stretch of road and we pass through Layton I have always wanted to stop by our 1st home we bought in Syracuse, so since my husband wasn't with me mom and I drove out there to see it. It was fun driving through those same streets that were once home to us. The house looked the same. A few trees had died but the others were big and strong. The deck was still standing and the dart board we hung up in the garage was still there. The house was also listed for sale. I don't know if it had changed owners a few times or not but it sure was fun to see.
I have two sick kids. Grant is still sick yet functioning. Charly gets the bug and crawls into my bed and slept for 3 hours. A week away from home with 6 kids is a lot of work but they are all so excited for Idaho. They can’t wait to go play in the snow. Hopefully the sick bug will come and go quickly.

Yesterday I had to go to Southshore Elementary to take some make-up pictures for the yearbook and since Grant wasn't feeling well he came and helped me out. He truely wan't feeling well but I think he flet like he was ditching since he was actually at school but not in his classroom. At one point his class started to exit to line up for dismissal and he hid behind the corner. He's still not 100% so he's home today as well. We are trying to get all of our last minute items done so we can head off to Idaho today! The kids are very excited to see their grandparents and to play in the snow. I think they are a little worried that the snow will be gone.... I however am afraid it will still be there with temps in the teens... bRRRR! I'll miss this 70 degree weather especially for running.
I hope to keep up on my blogging and my pictures this week of vacation... wish me luck!
I wanted to add this cute picture I took the other day! I love baby sessions.

I have a list a mile long in my head of the things we need to do before we go to Idaho and I'm pretty sure making cupcakes wasn't on it. But last night around 8:00 Chloe made us some cupcakes. She is my little baker. She loves it and does a pretty good job. I helped make the cream cheese frosting but other than that it was all Chloe. It's really nice when your kids get to an age where they don't need your help with everything. I might add: nor do that want it :(

Every 6 weeks I have a group of girls come to my house where I teach them letters.. numbers... colors... etc. It really is more like a playgroup at this age which is prefectly fine with me. The girls have a fun time and us moms don't mind taking our turn every 6 weeks. Well, yesterday Alex had a hayday with teh girls out on the trampoline. I was surprised at how much she liked that. However, NeiNei (the red tutu girl) didn't like Alex so much. She kept trying to take off the tutu..
I also wanted to show you the "words" I put up in my Laundry room. My awesome friend Tesha made this for me! She can make you one too for $20. Let me know if you want one!
I love what it says... because all of us know and feel the truthfulness in it!
