you just post a lot of pictures and pretend like its organized. but we all know its not.
|I'm not sure where this picture was taken but it was in the computer with this orientation and i loved it so much i couldn't rotate it.|
|my life is pure bliss|
|does this look familiar? have you played bad piggies. jackson laughed and laughed because "he's smiling because he doesn't know when he pushes the button he's going to get smooshed because there are thrusters on the top, both sides, and bottom."|
|stake conference reverence|
|stake conference bonding|
|stake conference shenanigans|
|pre iron bowl walk. little did we know jackson was walking around with a fever. so you're welcome to the 72% of you that have been sick this past week. Including this rest of us.|
|I took this picture 4 times because Jackson was trying to make a "cool" face but he couldn't do it right. So supposedly cool is having your eyes half open--just so you know.|
|In the big bath tub but still as little as ever. seriously, she was born in the 90% for weight and is now in the 10th. My children don't grow.|

Scott took these for us on Saturday. I think they look amazing. We wanted them to match Brent's parents pictures that we took last year when I was pregnant just with our newest most perfect addition! Also, check out the new banner up top!

So Sunday night I was hanging out with my in-laws after dinner. Its nice having them live in town with us and we see them a lot. I feel very close with them. My father-in-law jokingly made some comment about me not hugging him. I laughed and was embarrassed because I don't hug him. I asked if his other daughters in law did and he told me yes. Still more embarrassed I told him I wasn't quite ready to make a promise to change! I'm awful. I've continued thinking about it. I hug my dad easily. I hug my brothers. I hug all of my uncles and cousins. I hug back anybody that hugs me. I don't initiate hugs almost ever. Really only with my personal family members i think. So I'm curious... do y'all hug your father in law? Should I try to change? I'm embarrassed to say I don't even hug my mother-in-law who I love and admire.

i love it when they get along. Its not terrible rare either. I think they both have very kind hearts. As I was uploading these pictures Jackson ran from the bonus room and told this story.
"Mom!! I told Sam I was looking for the curvy lego and he tried to HELP ME! It was really hard but he didn't quit and then he FOUND IT! He gave it to me and I told him thank you." I had actually heard the very loud, emphatic, and dramatic thank yous from downstairs. They've been playing happily together this Saturday morning for 2.5 hours!!
These are pictures of Jackson letting Sam play Mario Kart. I think that race lasted like 16 minutes but Sam was just as intent on winning in the end as he was in the beginning.
Sam was crying that he couldn't keep up with Sam and Griffin so Jackson went back and held his hand. really??? how did i get so lucky?

I just want to say. We had a good thing. I mean for a while there, I went to you if i had any time on the computer. You taught me so much: recipes, clothing, diys (that i'm sorry but i'll never do), cheap ways to potentially clean my house, crafts and all kinds of other whatnot. My blog and I were sorta distant in those days. I'm just saying, I hope we can still be friends. I'll still come around a visit. Its just... getting a bit... redundant. I'm sorry, I just want my friends to post on their blogs again. Hope you understand.
i love a good corn maze, pu mpkin patch, bouncy house, hayride, tractor race, sandbox, sandbox filled with corn kernels, petting zoo, pumpkin launch, farm slide, family day. i thank you oakes farm.
