This picture is too funny of Kaydence, I've been trying to get her to make a "normal face or smile" when I take a picture and most of the time I get something like this
Kaydence and Marley have been sleeping in the same room and they have to get all settled before going to bed. The other night they both had about five babies tucked into bed with them, each with their own little blankies. Marley is always hugging her baby or her stuffed animal when she sleeps.
Another regular thing we do is get out the little kiddy pool and turn on the sprinklers so the kids can play in the water outside. Travis got out the squirt guns and they were chasing each other around the yard. While Travis was watering the yard the girls would try to sneak up on him and get him wet...
I was weeding around the flowers while they were running around with their squirt guns. Kesler wanted to be held so I attempted to finish weeding while holding him, he loves to be outside.
My mom came up a couple days early so we could spend some time together, she always spoils us whenever she comes but the best part is just getting to be with her! My parents had to come up early to pick up Mickell from EFY in Provo. When they picked her up I think she was a little pooped, when she got to our house she asked to hold Kesler and I think within minutes they were both asleep.
My dad and Mickell went up to Layton and my amazing in laws came over that Saturday afternoon, I cannot tell you how lucky I got in marrying into this family! Grandma and Grandpa stayed and played with the kiddos while we (Travis, Kaitlin, Kassidy, my man, and me) ran to pick up some things at the store. We also met up with Travis's cousin who rode this sweet motorcycle and the girls thought his helmet was just the funnest thing to wear.
Kim is amazing she brought this all-out-meal for all of us , it was delicous! Complete with a vegetable tray, two amazing salads, chips, and manwiches. It was perfect!
Didn't everyone do this with olives at some point in their lives... I still do sometimes
After the girl's bath they ran to cuddle with grandpa
The next morning Kesler was blessed and it made it so special having all these wonderful people there. I LOVE FAMILY! My uncle Jade and Aunt Jamie and their three kids came too, and they left us with all these adorable hand me downs from their kids! I LOVE IT! My grandparents just got back from China in time to make it to the blessing too. Thank you so much for making it everyone, it means a lot! Some of our family couldn't make it, which I all too well understand but I know they would have been there if they could have (I feel bad even asking everyone to inconvenience themselves to come to something that lasts all of ten minute, if even that).
I told everyone to make a funny face in this second picture
Kesler Dane's blessing was so special, I look forward to each of my kids blessing so much. It is such a special reminder of who each of them are and how much our Heavenly Father loves them. I really hope they each come to know who they are and know how incredibly loved they are.
We just had our parents and my grandma bring salads and we got papa murphy's pizza's the previous day so all we had to do was put them in the oven after church (we were thinking the easier the better!). I worked out perfectly!Kaitlin and Travis were changing when I got the previous picture of everyone at the blessing so after the meal I had to get a picture with them in it too!
Kass and Kesler
My dad is always out playing with our girls, they just love him!
He got them those firecrackers you throw on the ground, they were LOVING it!
My mom was really sick the previous week and was pretty much over it when she came to visit but she wanted to be really careful not to get Kesler sick so she didn't hold him while she was here. I think it was KILLING HER! So finally on Sunday afternoon she had had enough and found a way to hold him without worrying about passing anything to him. She got my dad's bandanna out and wrapped it around her face so she could hold him.
After a weekend like that my heart is just so full.
