I can't believe I have a six year old! He is such a great kid and we love him so much. Seth is very independent, caring, hardworking, and becoming such a little school boy! He is doing well in Kindergarten and likes school but he is getting a little anxious for summer to start so that he can work with his dad. What a helpful kid. Seth, WE LOVE YOU!

Tanner's Birthday!


Tanner had his 4th Birthday on the tenth of April. We kept the kids b-day's simple this year and I loved it! No big parties & dinners, just the simple cake and presents with the family. Tanner is such a fun boy. We really still can't understand him that well but he has a really good heart. He is the best brother, always helping, funny, caring, and starting to become a real "worker". We love you Tanner!

Since this month is full of Birthdays in our little family, we decided to keep it simple and take the kids to the Dodge Circuit Rodeo. The boys absolutely loved it! We are trying to talk Seth & Tanner into roping but they have their hearts set on riding bulls. Every mothers worst nightmare! What a fun night!

Better Late Then Never!

Easter Fun!




Tanner, Justin, & Cousin Aubree

The boys and some of the cousins!
This year it was absolutely freezing here so the easter egg hunt was quick. Usually we have to hide the eggs about 3-5 times but this year we all just lasted one quick round. We had a fun inside BBQ at Great Grandma Tracy's on Saturday and then I had the family out to my house for Easter dinner between conferences. It was a low key Easter and we all loved it!

Things have been crazy around here but I have made a goal of keeping this thing updated. So much has happened and I am sure I won't remember to blog about it all. Seth is still in school and loving it. Jason is right in the middle of calving and hating it. Tanner works with his dad when it's not too cold, otherwise he is watching cartoons or coloring. Justin is getting into everything and he loves it and I hate it! Baby girl is growing big and moving lots! They are going to induce her on June 7th. She is measuring big which is no surprise here since all of the boys were big. I am starting to get morning sickness again and I am hoping that it will go away but I know better. I tell Jason all of the time that I hope this pregnancy isn't a predictor of future behavior because if it is we're in HUGE trouble! Here are some other things we've been up to:

Snow, Snow, & more Snow!

When Jason got back he took Tanner for a ride in our meadows. Tanner loved it and thought that it was just as cool as going on the mountain.

Seth thinking he's cool!

Seth & Jason

Jason loves to snowmobile and sometimes I think it's the only thing in the winter that keeps him sane. He was able to take a break one afternoon and go riding up on the mountains by our house. There was a big group going and he decided to take Seth for the 1st time. Needless to say he absolutely loved it! When they got home Seth wouldn't quit talking about it. Who would have thought that there would be so much snow during Spring Break?


This is a picture of Justin and his cousin Wes. Justin and I were able to surprise my parents by flying to MO for a couple of days. I hadn't been home in 2 years and my dad was put in as bishop in his ward so I decided last minute to make the trip. This was Justin's 1st time flying and he did great, although he was a big stinker at my mom and dad's! It was good to see so many family members and to be able to spend time with lots of them. I am grateful to Jason and my mother in law Bonnie for taking care of Tanner and Seth while I was gone!

Grandpa Tracy

Last time I posted I had told you that we went to St. George and were able to move Jason's Grandparent's down there. Well, after being there 5 days, Jason's Grandpa was put into the hospital. About 4 days later he passed away. We love Great Grandpa Tracy and he is missed dearly. This was and continues to be hard on all of us. We are so grateful for the Plan of Salvation and the Gospel and the comfort we get from what we know. We love you grandpa!
