Emma turned 11 on July 28th, she is growing up so fast and is such a determined talented girl, we love her so much!. She wanted coffee cake for breakfast and then Nate took Emma and her best friend to panda express and yogurt. She relaxed in the afternoon and for dinner we had chicken and dumplings. Jack and Jackie, Jordan and Emily and some friends came over for cake. Lisa Hatch made an amazing Hippo playing a piano cake. She got lots of fun stuff and concert tickets from us. She was excited!

Catch up!

It the begining of June we went with my parents across country to meet some distant cousins. We drove in their big van which the kids call Big Bertha. We went to Braum's Ice Cream a lot, it was so yummy. Went to Graceland and toured Elvis' mansion then headed to meet the cousins. We toured Shiloh battlefield and saw the spots where the battle took place. It was neat to finally meet our cousins, I was the only one who hadn't met them and my dad wanted to take me. My brother Steven and his kids drove also, it was nice to have them along.We went to Abe's grill the last morning for breakfast and had the best bisquits ever. We toured Braum's factory Plant on the way home and got free ice cream, wish we had it out here, it was delish. The kids did great on the trip other than the last 2 days on the way home we were ready to get out of the car. I appreciate my dad for wanting me to know where our heritage comes from and enjoyed the trip and spending time with family.

We had a wonderful Easter. The kids wore their new Easter clothes to church and they all looked so cute. We had Emily and Jordan over for dinner. I cooked my first ham with scalloped potatoes, rolls, salad, corn and martinelles. It was a lovely day and evening!

Time to Update!

It has been a while since I updated. Here is what has been going on lately in our lives.

Emma joined drama, it fits her,she won a cowboy poetry award and was able to recite her poem at the Cowboy poetry gathering, she did great. Brenna is enjoying reading her new level books, riding her bike around the neighborhood and enjoying activity days for church. Jack started T-ball and enjoys it alot more than soccer, he just wasn't aggresive enough in soccer. We are busy as usual and I can't believe the kids have only about a month of school left. This year has flown by. Thankfully the kids school won't be closing next year so we have another year that we don't have to worry about. We have lots of things coming up in the next few months that I will definately blog about.Will have to get pictures in the next post of Brenna and Brig. Until then!

Brenna is 8!

Eight years ago today my sweet Brenna came to our family. She was born on a cold day in Missoula Montana, she is such a tenderhearted girl and also fiesty. We love our Brenna and couldn't imagine what life would be without her. I am so proud of the good girl she has become and is always willing to help me out. We love you Brenna Michelle.

Catching up!

So i need to catch up on blogging. It has been a while. We will start with Thanksgiving, we went up to phx to be with my family and had a wonderful time. I baked 4 pies and they were delish. My mom and I slaved away in the kitchen while the kids played and men watched the kids. We stayed up there 4 days and then came home. It was nice and relaxing, I love having Thanksgiving at my parents it always brings back such good memories, my moms rolls are the best. Then it was Christmas, we stayed here and had a nice Christmas, all the kids seemed to enjoy their gifts. We adopted a couple from our ward and the kids went over and sang Christmas songs to them and had treats. I think they really enjoyed it. We had our traditional Williams family mexican food feast on Christmas eve, I really love that tradition and then had Swedish meatballs for my family's tradition on Christmas night. We had a wonderful Christmas but missed Jack and Jackie who are serving a mission in Germany.I went up to Phx for a few days after Christmas and spent time at my parents and hung out with my brother and sister. The kids played with their cousins and we went to the train park in Scottsdale they really enjoyed it. We went to Culvers and 5 guys, we always have fun at mom and dads. Now on to Jan, Brig turned 3 and he is potty trained and doing well with it, my last one out of diapers. Brenna will be 8 on the 31st and will be baptized, I can't believe my little peanut is getting so old. Well that is all for now!
