Playing Catch Up

I haven't blogged in such a long time.  I've been very sick since November and I think the emotional aspect of my illness was so much more debilitating (to blogging anyway) than the physical aspect.  I didn't even post anything about Christmas, or Easter, or major events!  So now to dig through the pictures and find what I actually documented.

Last month I had my adrenal glands removed so hopefully this will help me to recover from that awful monster Cushing's Disease and I can be a better wife, mother, and person.

In the midst of decorating for Christmas Cole enjoyed making this giant hamburger.  Cole is elusive so I have to add any picture I can get of him.

Sage has been dressing up like Santa at school for years.  She was happy the school gave her another opportunity this year.

This is what December looks like in St. George, green grass and lots of leaves from our Mulberry trees.  The 2 extra kids are Christian Spangler and Martha Bown.  Our house has 2-10 extra kids on any given day.  I love it!!!

What is sweeter than a boy and his dog!

Ashley's Christmas dress.  We made her wear it and she hasn't worn it since.

Noah's first day of preschool!

Jack's first professional haircut.  I usually just hack away at him myself.

Sometimes you just have to collapse where you are when you're as busy as Noah.

Sage's Native American day at school.  

Noah is enthralled with watching youtube videos of men with nothing better to do showing their collections of hot wheels.

Luke broke his collar bone :(

Ashley and I had a girls day with Chanelle and Candra!  What a great day!  I can't wait to do it again.

Noah is so lucky to have one friend close by and now 2 more have moved in. (Tayton & Mason Millet and Nathan Forsyth)

There are hundreds of pictures of Ashley on my computer since she's always taking pictures on my phone.  I couldn't pass up posting this one.

I took Noah and Luke to the car show by our house.  This was Noah's favorite car.

Luke and Noah got glasses!  They both look so good in them.

We had a visit from the Snow's!!!  We've known the Snow's since Ashley was a baby so our kids have grown up together.

We only have 2 kids left young enough to do the Easter egg hunt.  The other 3 are happy to be home sleeping in.

Coloring Easter eggs!  Don't let Cole's presence fool you.  I just made him stand here for the picture and as soon as I was done he was out the door.  Who can expect a 14 year old boy to color Easter eggs right?

Sage's traditional Easter basket hairdo.  This is one of our favorite hairstyles we get from our favorite hair blog.  ( A Princess and Her Hair)

Pretty girls on Easter morning.  Ashley looked like Audrey Hepburn that day.

Well that's all for now.  I need to get busy having summer fun with the kids so we can get some good pictures.
