my boys

The best time for pictures is Sunday Morning. We have 9am church and John starts loading kids in the car at 8:40. So it was a treat this particular Sunday morning when we were all ready at 8:30, John thought we should be jumping in the car and I said wait, lets get some pictures. Even after a few pictures we made it to church by 8:45. It is a good thing I don't have any little girls to get ready. If so I would probably have to drive myself to church.

I just returned from scrapbook weekend with my girlfriends in Heber. It was so much fun. I completed over 100 pages and finished out 2008. I have been making 3 books for two years now. My plan for 2009 is to switch from 81/2 x 11 binders to 12 x 12 books and just make one family scrapbook. I just had to tell myself that James and Jakub are never going to have as many personal scrapbooks as J. He was an only child for 5 years and that is just the way it is. I love to journal my thoughts and share pictures of my handsome boys in my scrapbooks. I consider them my way of preserving my family history. I don't go all out and spend hours on one page with the stickers and paper but I hope they are not to cheesy.
I will tell you the best part of being away at scrapbook weekend is spending 3 days looking at the faces of my boys in pictures and realizing how much I love them. I truly am very blessed.

Here we go to Grandma's House!

This was our first trip to Clinton this year. With 3 boys crowded in the back seat of our car we set out for a 1 1/2 hour drive.

J played the Nintendo DS for a few minutes before getting car sick. We had to make several stops for him to climb over the front seat and out the door for air. Our family wish for next Christmas is a van. Once at Grandma's we celebrated the March birthdays. James and Jakub got cupcakes.

John's favorite is german chocolate cake with mint chocolate chip ice cream. For the big 60 birthday boy Grandpa there was Lemon Meringue pie.

Jakub liked showing off the raccoon hat.

Grandpa gave a great FHE lesson on Prayer and the things that are most important to us in our lives. We are truly a very blessed family. John and I just celebrated our 10th Anniversary and I have been reflecting on our commitment to each other and goal to return with our family and be together forever.

The Twins Are 2.

This year for the twins birthday we decided we wanted to take them on an outing verses buying more stuff that we don't need. I hope the memories will last longer that the toys. So we purchased tickets to Disney on ice. The show is in a few weeks. It should be fun. I am probably more excited than the boys since they don't really understand what is going on.

All they know is they had a party and it was fun.......
Papa showed up with 2 big wheels. "cycle" says Jaybub. "bike" says Jamesy. Now we just need SPRING in Idaho. We still haven't gotten over 42 degrees.
We had lunch....

Good times.....

Thanks to all the family that came to support us in our celebration for the twins. John's parents came up with Jaren and Sarah. Megan came with the kids. I lucked out that my sister and brother in law blessed their baby today, so my brothers were both here from out of town. It was the 1st time my family had all been together since the week before Christmas. The bigger John and I's families get the harder it is to get together. Everyone's lives are so busy. It is a good thing we have Facebook and blogs so we call all keep in touch. I love you all.
