Mom and Dad

My mom and dad were able to spend a week with us this summer. This was amazing because we don't get to see them as much as we would like. It was so much fun for me and the boys to hang out with them. They were also a big help- six boys can really take it out of you. My mom and dad were very brave- can you imagine the level of noise that 6 boys can make. Here are some of the more memorable pictures.

It was a great week- but I think they were very ready to go home. Thanks for coming- we love you!!!

Christopher's big day

I finally have my computer back so I can post some of our summer pictures. The highlight of our summer was Christopher's baptism. He was able to go to Las Vegas to see his cousin Matthew baptized, and then all the boys came to our house, along with Grandma and Grandpa and Julie and Steve, for Christopher's baptism.

The Greatest Day

Warning-this is a sappy post. 15 years ago Chris and I were married. I am so blessed to be able to have him in my life. If you can think of all the good attributes a person has-Chris has them all. He cooks, cleans bathrooms, does laundry, makes me laugh, lets me read all I want and works very hard to provide for us. He is the most unselfish man I know. I am so grateful for what he does for me and my boys. He is amazing!!! So thank you for a great 15 years. I wouldn't have changed anything (well except for our only 2 mistakes- our dog and our house guest). I have loved our life together. You are the best!!!

No Sleep :(

Okay- the Olympics is ruining my life. I admit it- I'm addicted. I start at 7:00pm and watch until 12 or 1 am. I don't think I have been to bed before 1:30 all week. I have bags under my eyes and my temper is a little short all because I had to see if the US women win in gymnastics or if Michael Phelps wins another gold. I think I might be dead by the end. Last night I spent 20 minutes on the computer playing Olympic trivia after watching for 4 hours. I think I might need an intervention!

ps--I have loads of pictures from the end of summer, but I had to take my laptop in to get fixed so they will have to wait until next week--sorry.
