What is going on at our house...

Johnny started Kindergarten and loves it! He is such  a smart kid.
He loves to draw and knows all his letters and numbers so the homework seems a bit too easy.
Our little superhero Ben! He always has a wet chin so he always wears a bib. This one got turned around while he was taking apart the handle of the recliner.
 As of...well a long time ago, I think it was around six months he figured out how to be mobile and as you can see he is a happy boy. 
And about 4 weeks ago he figured out how to pull himself up to life just keeps getting better! Again more happiness!
So Ben is on the go...all the time!
 This is what I am faced with whenever I try to do dishes, cook, can peaches....
 Canning is slightly difficult with an 8 month old attached to your leg. He is very mobile and is trying new things each day like trying to climb the stairs (don't worry e never gets farther than the first two before he is caught), couch surfing and a few steps here and there when helped.
I know I am asking for it but it was just so cute to see him so excited about this. He is so bored with crawling. His brothers think it is the coolest  toy and have taken it over (even though they both used it and outgrew it years ago!)
 The boys are learning to ride bikes. We go to the church and let them ride around the parking lot. Johnny just started without training wheels a couple of weeks ago and he is certain he is a pro at it! We came across another small bike for a great price and couldn't pass up the opportunity for Danny, he has wanted so bad to do it to. So Danny just got a  real bike about a week ago and had his first go at it.
 He got bucked off and skinned his nose....but like any good cowboy he got right back on!
 As I said Ben is he was "packed" and ready to go to Grandma's house.
 He discovered he can see out the front door. I love this boy's big smile!
Caught red handed....after the boys were in bed I was working on getting Johnny's lunch ready and found this little mischievous boy sitting in the dark bathroom.

And we have...a walrus! And other pictures to make you smile.

As you can see we didn't go away after all. So here is what is going on with us.
Ben at five month old is officially mobile...after a fashion. He definitely gets around!
He also loves his fingers, and anything else he can stuff in his mouth.
 He loves bathing in his duck tub.
 We tried cereal and he seemed to love it, but something about it makes him wake it multiple times at night. So we are going to wait a bit.

I'm ditching out

I am ditching out....A friend of mine discovered that her blog was linked to some very inappropriate sites. As a result I checked and sure enough mine was too!!!!! I don't blog enough to make it worth my time to collect every ones information. Soooo I am going to print my blog in a book and then delete it. I want my family to be protected and I want nothing to do with the evil influences that can be brought into my home this way. I will miss you...hopefully I can still keep up on your families in some other way.

Happenings at our house

These pictures are all backwards so bare with me....
Benjamin as of today! He is getting so big so fast! He is a very happy little guy. He is smiling and cooing, and finally sleeping pretty well at night. He has also discovered a mode of movement...he digs in his heels and bucks backwards until he bumps into something or gets stuck like in the corner of his crib. 

 Here Jonathan and Daniel are showing the collage they made of the pictures they found in their Easter eggs. We decided to skip the candy this year and try to keep the focus on what Easter is really about. (Notice the need for haircuts?) 
 And here they are sporting their new haircuts. They are brave enough again to let me just buzz it.
 Johnny assisting Daniel with his smile!
 My three boys! How I love these little dudes!
 Ben about one month old.
 Daniel showing off the police car he got for his birthday.

 Tom, his Grandma Powell and baby Ben. We went to Utah in February to see Tom's sister get sealed to her family and blessed Ben while we were there. I just realized we should have pulled his Dad in and got a four generation picture!
 My crazy little crew! How did my family get so big?
And here are my little tornados hard at work. They have been such best buddies especially since Ben has come into our home. They go off and entertain each other so I am able to tend to Ben.
