These are Orion's awards he got the last day of school. He got the Citizen of the Year award of his class. He also got an award for being on the Honor Roll all year. He got an award in band and one from the 1st graders thanking him for being a leader. He read to them everyday of the school year for their reading time. He got 3 free meal coupons from JB's, Mimi's Cafe, and The Iron Skillet! Orion's teacher says he has a very unique way of looking at life and she loves it. She says he is a great writer and artist! He gave her a Book of Mormon this year. He wrote the missionaries # in it and marked Moroni 10:3-5 and asked her to pray about it. He is a great little missionary. We are so pleased with him!!
Titan also got the award for Citizen of the Year for his class!! He got an award for running 77.5 miles in the running club this year. He got one for being on the Honor Roll all school year too. He got an award from his teacher for All around good character. She said he was the star of her class this year!! He is a friend to everyone and everyone follows his example. Titan also got free meal coupons. Way to go Titan!

Here we are at Mimi's Cafe celebrating! We went to see Night of the Museum too. I feel so blessed to have these boys in my life. They truly are amazing kids! I learn so much from their Valiant spirits!

Baby Is Huge!

So I went to the doctor yesterday. She said I am measuring 4 weeks bigger than I should be. She measured a few times to make sure.... and sure enough, another huge baby! I will be getting an ultrasound done at my next visit in 2 weeks. I was hoping for a small, petite little girl, but as long as she's healthy and still a GIRL, I guess I'll be happy. I can't believe how close it is. We have a lot of work to do. I need to get my house organized before she gets here. Other wise it won't get done for a year or two. (Whenever our life settles down again) Does your life settle down after baby number 5?

Growing and Growing!

Titan went in for his check up and was 56 inches tall and 80 lbs. He is in the 95% for height and weight! He will be a big boy. Takes after his big handsome Dad!! Here he is with his new bike. Titan still has a heart of gold. He is a friend to everyone.

Orion was 57 inches tall and 78 lbs. He was in the 50% . This picture is of his first band concert. He did awesome! He plays the trombone. He is hoping Middle School will have stings in their band so he can play his guitar. Can you believe he will be in Middle School!!
Corbin was 44 inches tall and 46 lbs. He was in 75% for height and 90% for weight. I can't believe how much this boy has grown this year. He is a super smart kid too! It's hard to believe he will be in Kinder! Almost 5 years old! Time goes by way to fast.

Here is Caden playing "POW WOW" with dad. This is his favorite new word. He loves the Hulk fist. He walks around with them on and says "POW WOW".

Here he is at the Children's Museum in PHX. I love that infant room!

At Caden's 12 month check up they said he is 33.5 inches tall and 28.5 lbs. He is 95% in height and 100% in weight. He is our massive boy! He just turned 14 months old so he is still my baby. It makes it hard to carry the 30 lbs on my belly plus the 30 lbs he weighs. Good thing he is such a good little walker or I'd be in a lot of trouble! He is growing so fast too!

And here I am growing like crazy! 32 weeks prego. Only 8 more to go! Everyone in our family seems to be growing bigger except for Shay. He seems to be getting smaller! I told him I'm going to start adding a stick of butter to everything I cook for him! It's not fair for him to loose weight and me to gain!! He does look great though! Jana will be here soon and all her growing brothers will be there to protect and help look after her. She will be well taken care of for sure!

Corbin's Music Recital

Corbin had a music recital last night. He did so good. He learned so much this year!
I love this program! It is called Lets Play Music. And we had the best teacher ever!

I had to throw this picture in there. 2 weeks ago we fixed Corbin's tires. Shay decided not to put his training wheels back on. So Corbin jumped on and off he went! I am not kidding, this kid just jumped on his bike, bare foot, and dark outside and just rode away. The next morning we went for a 3 mile family bike ride and he was hard to keep up with. He has got to be one of the most coordinated kids i have ever met!

Back to Lets Play Music...He really enjoyed learning about the notes and staff. He learned about cords. He can pick out different cords in songs. He can play songs on his bells...I can go on forever. He really learned so much and had so much fun doing it. He got to watch the class older than his during his recital. He keeps talking about it. He is so excited for next year.... he will be playing the piano! He is so much fun! Thank you to Amelia for being such a great teacher!
