Hey everyone...I have been trying to upload more pictures to share for over a month now, but for some reason, blogger keeps giving me errors. I was so close to being caught up too. I am going to try to get something up soon, otherwise I will be switching to another blog site. stay tuned...
Emma was so excited for her birthday this year. She had a long list of kids to invite, and I let her invite them all, thinking some wouldn't show up, but I was wrong. We ended up having 15 kids are her party. It was a little overwhelming, but it was also fun to see her with her friends, and see how much they love her. This is a picture of us playing Pass the Present, the kids all thought it was great.
They also loved playing on our airplane.
Everything was Hello Kitty themed, she's is now fully stocked in Hello Kitty gear.
She was so excited for all the birthday fun.
I made a simple Hello Kitty cake for her, she loved it.
We decided that it is easier to have a friends party and a family party, instead of combining both, so this is at her family party. We decided to get her a leap pad, she loves it. We are so glad that we got it.
Emma got lots of presents from everyone that loves her, and some money for our upcoming trip to disneyland.
These 2 kids love each other so much, I love to watch how well they take care of each other.
Every year we take the kids to Lehi's Pioneer Days, for those that aren't local, most of the towns in Utah have their own "Days," it's like a festival. There is always a parade, and some sort of carnival or activity. The kids love the Lehi parade, everyone throws candy. They left this year with 2 gallon bags full of candy. After the parade we always take them to the family fun fair to ride the horses. They love riding the horses.
James was so excited about riding a horse.
I love all these pictures of Emma, she is such a happy girl. She loves animals so she was very happy to get to ride the horses.
We decided to make a trip to Washington in April. We have recently discovered DoTerra Essential Oils and wanted to start growing our business out there, so we made a little trip. On our way home we stopped at Multnomah Falls and took a quick hike. Love this place!
Emma's photography skills are getting better and better.
My silly faced kids
Trying to take a family picture, with almost all the grandkids (this is a very hard task!)
We took the kids to the zoo one of the days we were there. The kids loved it.
Luckily the Easter Bunny found us at Grandma and Grandpa Moultrie's...Emma was really worried about it.
Emily(9) is so close to being taller than me...
she definitely beat me in shoe size(I'm the pink socks)
This was before our trip. We wore James out so much he fell asleep standing up!
Geoff and I got married in April of 2000, we've spent most of our married life with Geoff in School, he finished in Dec 2006, and is starting his own office now. We had Emma in July of 2006, and James in October of 2008. We feel so blessed to have such a happy little family.
Emma Emma is quite the little girl. She loves just about everything. She reminds everyone that eating our vegetables makes us grow big and strong and randomly asks people if they eat ther veggies. She loves tinkerbell and princesses. She is a great big sister. She loves to play like she's the mom and we're the kids. She reads us books and tucks us in. She sings like crazy, and picks up lyrics really well. She makes us smile constantly.
James James is his own little character, he is definetely a boy. He climbs like crazy and loves to make messes. His favorite words are hey, no, cheese, and wow. He likes to dance and we think it's really cute when he shakes his little bum. He has a contagious smile and keeps us on our toes
Mandy Mandy stays busy with the kids, she loves being a mom. She is teaching herself how to decorate cakes. She also helps run the family business.
Geoff Works hard to support us. He loves free time with the kids. He likes to be outside and enjoys hiking. He also enjoys playing golf and basketball.
