Guess Who is finally a BIG BOY!!!! YUP at the ripe old age of 4!!! Finally on his 4th birthday I had to put my foot down, I needed some big leverage. So what finally worked? Telling him no birthday party till her was fully potty trained. It worked!!! I couldn't believe it. I have tried everything & he just didn't care. He wanted to be like his big brother JoJo & wear diapers. I thought I was doomed to have 3 kids in diapers forever!!! So long story short, he is fully potty trained & is having his birthday party on Tuesday!!! It feels SO GOOD!!!


We have been living outside, its the best when you have the best neighbors & kids all around to play with. I love to lay out a blanket & watch the kids play while visiting with my neighbors. It really is the best & I'm so grateful I can do this.

What Happened???

I don't know what happened. One minute she was our little sweet princess & the next she was our naughty one. She is BUSY,BUSY,BUSY. Always on the go. The minute I have the dishwasher open she crawls as fast as she can to climb up and start undoing what I'm doing. She is getting lost of sass. I've decided its just not in the cards for us to have a calm child. Must be the mixture of DNA. She keeps us laughing & makes sure she is not missing out on anything. She loves drinks of anything. If she sees you drinking something you can be sure she will start her yell & come straight for you. Gracie can hold her own with her Brothers and gets right up in all their business. She a cutie, just a naughty one. We love her.

Catch up!

What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas!

In February my Mom, John, Gracie, and I took a trip to Henderson, NV to stay with Trevor's kids while they went on a cruise. It was such a fun trip, I have the cutest nieces ever. I loved being able to be around them. While I was there two of my best friends came to stay with me. Valerie Clawson (AKA Biggy, mission comp) & Kim Jenson ( we met in 7th grade @ EFY & have stayed close friends ever since.) These gals loaded in a car not knowing each other & made the 5 hour drive to come spend my 31st Birthday weekend with me. I loved having them. Then I jumped in my van with only Gracie leaving my mom to watch John & Trevors girls while I made a quick 2 day trip to Utah to see my mission sisters. It was so great to see them all, we made a trip to see Pres & Sister Park as well. It was so good to see them & get to visit with them. I really had the greatest mission with the best sisters in the world. Of course I didn't take one picture on this trip, but my cute niece Brighton took a picture of Gracie as they sneaked her, her very first ice cream cone!!!!

Daddy would FREAK!!! That's why, "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!"
