Things We Love This Week


Seth: Playing with his band. He got to play with his band at Layton's Relay for Life. He hadn't played in front of people for a long time and loved it. He sounded super awesome too. The boys and I loved being able to watch him and be proud. It was way cute to see the boys get excited when they heard a song they recognized and sing along. I'm still annoyed at myself that I forgot my camera. :(

Dezi: The Olympics! Yea, I've become a little obsessed with them, but I figure it's only once every 4 years (I don't get as excited about winter), so I can afford to become a little lazy for that time. I've even gotten my boys excited about them, every time when they see our flag on the tv they start jumping up and down cheering, yelling "Go USA!" or "Yea! USA got 1st" or when they see other flags they say "Oh no! USA didn't win. Come on." Let me just say, that thanks to our DVR I can watch things late at night (after the boys are in bed) or at 5:30 in the morning when Peyton wakes me up, so I haven't become completely neglectful.

Easton & Cole: Playing outside. As usual, they are always wanting to play outside. They love riding bikes and playing in the water. One time I drew a small hopscotch for them to try out. Now they are always asking me to draw more for them (I usually draw 2, so they can each do it at the same time). This last time I only drew 1 and said they could share. So Cole started to draw one himself and then Easton joined in and helped. They were so cute doing it together. The one Easton is playing on is the one they drew together (although the one I drew doesn't look much better), and I really didn't help with a single part of it. I was pretty impressed.
Peyton: Waffles with syrup. Usually when we have waffles, I'll feed him. This last Sunday I cut it up and put it in front of him. He just kept eating and eating so I kept giving him more. He ate 2 and a half waffles!! Yep, he ate more than both his older brothers. And I did learn one thing, giving Peyton a bath the night before he has waffles is completely pointless.

I love that Pey is wearing that "ellas" shirt- did I bring that for Easton when I got home from my mission? He is looking so big too, I can't believe how grown up they all are!

Yep, that is the shirt you brought Easton back from your mission. It's so crazy to think Easton used to fit it. They are all growing up way too fast.
