A few notable milestones our family has/will experience:

Blake turned 12 and received the Aaronic Priesthood. Like his older brother, he completed reading the Standard Works before he turned 12.

Jacob will turn 8 and be baptized.

Brandon will turn 14. Fourteen!!! He will now be able to attend Youth Conferences and Youth Dances!! He will also be attending high school and early-morning seminary this fall. High School!!! Seminary!!!!!

Joshua will be turning 5 and will attend kindergarten this fall. This means I will be alone with Emma. After having Brandon home for two years, our home will seem too quiet. But not for long....

If all goes well, we will welcome our 6th baby this fall. We are excited and look forward to this new addition. I feel blessed to not be as nauseated with this pregnancy as I have been with the others. The fact that I can actually keep food down is huge (and so is this waistline of mine..but that's OK..).

We are excited for the blessings of this year!

I found one phone today!

Don't ask me where it was.

OK...I'll tell you.

But please don't judge.
It was at the foot of Jacob's bed.

Hiding in a pile of blankets and toys and a sleeping bag.

I guess it's been a while since I've made his bed.

One more to go........
