Too Big Too Fast

Monday, August 25, 2008


If I take enough pictures do you think I'll remember...
The way Tavis randomly breaks out in laugher
The way Laila puckers her lips up to her nose in Mr. Sour Face manor
The way Kaden used to always call the Bishop the 'Bush-up'
The way they all nuzzled there little heads into the craddle from my neck to my shoulder... when they've grown I think that spot will feel so empty!
Will I remember the softness of Kaden's nose when he gave me all those Eskimo kisses
The way Tavis would snuggle up to me and rub my ear and suck his finger till he fell asleep
The way Laila trills and waves and claps her tiny little hands
The way their breath smells when they have a fever
The way Tavis calls everyone Anna
The way Laila climbs into the kitchen drawer and looks at me, eyes twinkling, so proud of herself
The way Kaden greets me when I come home from work in the morning, "Mommy!"
Oh they grow so fast and I have so little time I hope I can remember... The feelings and stories that go with each mental picture!

Cleaning the Death Trap (A.K.A. The Garage)

Laila wanted to explore but I felt containment was best and placed her in Baby Lock-down!

Tavis kept riding away into the sunset or more precicely the street, so I had to lie and tell him I had a popcicle so he would come back! Don't judge me... he had wheels and therefore I had to use my wiley ways; it was obviously an unfair advantage!

Kaden was forced into slave labor and was busy taking things here and there! He was the legs of this operation... He did briefly manage a brief escape but after capturing the guitly on film I drove him back into the pits of dust and debree!

This is a picture from Lindsay's Birthday! I sent the boys into her work dressed up in there suits and ties. Kaden was holding a mini chocolate cake with a candle and Tavis had a dozen roses that were almost bigger than he was. Laila and I followed with some presents (like the yellow shirt she has on) and some IBC rootbeer that Kaden insisted we get her (because that's her favorite soda Mom --that's what Kaden kept telling me at the store) and of course all the kids had kisses for her! We love Aunt Lindsay!!!

Sunday Best

Kaden wanted a pic with his Sis! I think she just wanted me... Oh well, I think there cuties anyway.

Circle Journal

So I am on the enrichment commitee in my ward and I came up with this idea... the pics are bad because there snaps of scrap pages but it's the idea I wanted to share. We of course want the Sisters to get to know each other but we don't want to spend all of our quarterlies trying to do 'get to know yous'! So my sister had told me about doing Circle Journals within families but I thought it would be great for our ward to do... Each Sister introduces herself and her family and shares a bit of what the Gospel means in her life and then on Sunday has to pass it to a Sister not already in the Journal. It's going well and if it keeps passing like it's suppose to we'll make copies for all the Sisters in the ward.

Pretty Girl

My Great Listener

Kaden found these penguin statues at the zoo and of course began to climb on them... Note the sign right behind him!
