Emma Pearl is 8!

My sweet Emma turned 8, yesterday. I can't believe how fast she has grown. It seems like yesterday when I was in labor for 17 hours with her. She is so driven and smart and is so determined to learn things on her own. I can't wait to see her grow and develop even more in the next few years. I am so thankful for her in my life. We went to teddy bear connection with a couple of her friends and then came home and made ice cream sundays. We went to mcds for dinner(yum just kidding) her choice and then went to cousin for another party. It was a fun day.

Fun with friends

Well I met up with a few of my good friends from high school this past weekend. We try to get together once a year if we can. We went to the Az grand resort and had lots of relaxation. Jana and I got there first and were dying of heat stoke even though I grew up there I still can't believe how hot it is, so we took a quick dip in the pool before Jamie and Taya arrived. We chatted in the room a while and then decided to go to Carrabas for dinner. It was yummy but there was a huge cockroach crawling up the wall by my head needless to say I freaked a little, I despise cockroaches. We informed well I informed the waiter by screaming and we moved to a different table, they said they found it but I didn't believe them. We finished dinner and went for a night swim which was realaxing. Went to bed about midnight and woke up went to breakfast well brunch it was 11am and then headed home. It was a nice weekend and my sweetie was so good to take care of all the kids. I had fun and look forward to next year.

All four of us getting ready for a night swim, the water was so nice.

My friend Jamie, she is such a sweetheat, it was so good to see her again.

Our comfy bed, that I slept until 8:30 in the morning, don't think I have done that since I have had kids.

Well no pict of the party but the cake sure did turn out good it was so yummy. It will definately be a keeper. You never know if something will turn out the first time you make it, so that was nice that it was so good. If anyone wants the recipe it is called chocolate intensity and it is on the Nestle website.

Well we are done with swimming lessons and Emma moved to the next level, thank goodness. After a month of the same class she better have passed. I think Jack and Brenna will still be the same level next summer, they still don't know how to swim on their own yet. I can't believe school starts in less than a month. I have started the clothes shopping and will go soon with the kids to get backpacks and lunch bags. I told them they have to take their lunches everyday except one day that they have their favorite lunch. Jack wants a lunch bag too, so I guess everyone gets one. I think he will be lonely without Brenna gone all day. I am looking forward to it, only 2 kids at home yipee! It is my mom's b-day today so we are going their tonight, I made a cake called chocolate intensity, hopefully it turns out. I'll post pictures of the party later.

More 4th pict.

4th of July Fun!

We had lots of fun for the 4th. We went to a barbeque in bisbee at some friends house, the kids played around their yard. We stayed for a few hours and then headed home in time to watch the fireworks. We met up with my friend Jana and her family and Nathan's sister Emily and her little by Jordan. Brig loved the fireworks and didn't fuss at all. Jack ran around most of the time with his cousin. It was great weather, and we had lots of fun.

Brig is gettin big!

I can't believe how fast time goes. Brig will be 6 months next week. He is such a little mamma's boy, which sometimes isn't fun when he just want's to be held. He is starting to get chunky, which I think is so cute. He loves to be around people and is a smiley boy. He loves to eat and gets upset when he is done. We love him lots. I love the picture of Brig and Jack, so cute.
