    Rose is 7

    No Comments

    Rose turned 7 on Sunday the 1st!

    Rose is happy and easy. She is always helping and playing with her siblings. she tries so hard at EVERYTHING she does. 7 is so big! and she is such a big little helper 🙂 Her birthday was early presents since we wanted to go to Conference Breakfast at Joel’s house. She wanted a pin toy, and a halloween dress. We got her that and a chapstick spinner, paint and a Mal costume.

    We watched afternoon conference at home and then Ben made sausage Pasta for Rose’s birthday dinner. After dinner we had cake and ice cream and hung out as a family. It was fun to celebrate rose!


    I felt bad that I just made her these Descendants cupcakes and not a fun cake. BUT it was busy and she did get a fun party and even though the frosting tasted a little peppery I don’t think she minded. Next year I’m pushing for a cousins party and fun cake 🙂

    Rose and I have 1 day in between our birthdays and this year that day was PARTY DAY! We watched General Conference all day and then we hurried over to the Hancocks house for a Descendants II party with lots of Rose and Gentry friends! There were lots of little 1st and 2nd grade school friends that came! and then the older girls – Claira, Cali, Camry, Mia and Anna dressed up and helped with Descendant makeovers! Packer and Luca chilled and helped me take pictures. Anyway, we partied from 5-8pm.

    Rose and Gentry were so cute!

    Everyone singing and dancing:




    Pizza and Cupcakes:

    Presents, movie time, and MORE dancing!

    Girls Night

    No Comments

    While the boys are away… the girls shopped, watched and played!

    We went shopping for back to school clothes. Cali had a stomach ache so we only went to Target. We came home and ate junk and watched Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2 and played with Kelsey and had fun. The next morning we watched some more Camp Rock and then finished shopping. These girls are getting pretty fun! But those baby bottle dip things were one of the worst purchases of my life – except the girls loved them!

    Soccer Rose

    Rose had a good year on the Teal Tornadoes. She got to play with Ellie and Gentry and she knew Elle from last year. She was even friends with the boys by the end: Mikey, Matthew, Beck, and Jett.


    Rose is very aggressive on the field. She goes for the ball and pushes her way through the group. She had lots of goals this year. She is usually the shortest one on the field but she plays hard and makes up for it.

    Kindergarten Field Day

    No Comments

    I went to field Day with Rose. It was fun to see her in her element having a good time with school friends.

    Rose and Cammi. They met at Discovery park the week before Kindergarten started and they hit it off. Then they ended up in the same class! Now they are friends. Play dates and all!

    Rose and Gentry and Gabriella and …

    It was fun to see Rose in action. She didn’t need me at all and she had lots of little friends to go between.

    at the end of the day I brought her and Gentry home and took a last day picture!

    Rose got to go to school from 9:15-1:15 and visit all of the 1st grade classrooms and teachers. She loved it! Benji got to be her and Ellie’s 6th grade buddy! He loved it. Rose loved walking home with all the neighborhood kids.

    This year they didn’t get split into their new classes and see who their new teacher might be so… we all just have to wait to find out. We are getting a new Principal and Vice Principal this next year so…

    Ray is getting excited to go to Kindergarten!

    Field Trip and Play Dates

    No Comments

    Rose had her first field trip and school bus ride! They went to the children’s museum at Thanksgiving Point and she got to be with Ellie and Cammy and Jamie.

    Ray has always been a home body. He is content with the siblings and enjoys time with each of them. This month he branched out a little and played with Allie across the street and then went and knocked on the door at Noah’s house! It took all of his nerve but he did it and he had a lot of fun. There are 4 or 5 kids his age in the neighborhood so he could have lots of fun if he decides he wants to…
