    This kid is so fun right now! He loves to Play. He is learning new things every day. I love watching him explore and pull himself up and crawl and sit up and put everything in his mouth. He’ll eat anything you put near him. He is a great sleeper: 8pm -8am and then a morning nap and an afternoon nap. He is so smiley. Everyone loves the Augster.

    Big Girl Bed

    No Comments

    Millie is in a toddler bed. She’s been done with the crib for a while but she keeps coming in my bed in the wee morning hours so I’m trying to get her to like her new space and STAY there.


    She is a good snuggle bug but it needs to be after 6am or I’m gonna be a grouchy mom.

    Utah Caucus

    This election year is CRAZY. The candidate choices are killing me. Ben took the time to go to the Caucus meeting, which was also crazy. We, like others, are nervous for our future.

    Manila Classic Skate Night

    No Comments

    The school has Skate night a couple times a year and we never go because our kids haven’t been into skating or even scootering but this year I decided we were ready. The little kids have been skating in the house and the big kids like their scooters now and if nothing else Kelsey and I will have fun skating and pushing Tiago. We convinced Erica and her kids to meet us there and we brought Mia and Luca with us and Matt and Jamie’s family showed up too! We saw other ward members and classmates and had a really fun family night.

    THE KIDS LoVeD IT! They are still talking about it and they have been practicing on their skates ever since!

    Movie Grille Date Night

    No Comments

    We have been planning a night on the town in Ogden and it finally happened. On March 19th we picked up Joel and Megan and Kelsey and drove to Ogden. We dropped our 7 kids off with Taylee and Kylee and Ryan and Mary’s other 5 kids! We grabbed Ryan and Mary and met Shannon at the Movie grille. The movie Grille was fun because you order and then eat during the movie and we played a little Pool afterwards! I had a lot of fun out on the town with these guys!

    The kids did great without us 🙂 Tiago slept most of the time 🙂 and we had time to play a couple of games before heading home!

    It’s that time of year again. ARTS FESTIVAL! The kids make a beautiful piece of art and we get to go to the school and buy it. And then they have lots of other activities for the kids to do. The kids also LOVE to decorate a Soda and donate it to the Soda Pop Walk. The 5th grade wax museum is also this night so we got to go watch Benji this year. AND this was all on St. Patty’s Day So…

    For the Wax museum the 5th graders have to dress up as an American Hero that they have researched and written a report about. Then they pretend to be a statue for one hour while everyone comes to look at them 🙂

    Our Niece Shaelyn is home from her mission! She’s been home for 3 weeks actually. We haven’t seen her yet BUT we’ve chatted and are hoping to see her in May. I loved reading her weekly email. Shae was such a great missionary and her emails were always enlightening and uplifting. I am so grateful for such good examples for my kids. Welcome Home Sister Eggers.
