What do you do in the summer time.......

Man I sure stink at blogging these days!! I haven't completely given up YET!! I wrote this one sometime during the summer just never quite got around to publishing it!

Here is what we have been up to this summer!

The first week the kids were out of school we went to Grandma's house!! What a great way to spend the first week of summer break! We had a fun time catching up and meeting a brand new cousin Kraiden!

We came home and started some of our fun summer activities:

Kaitlyn finished summer musical theatre camp and had a blast! She did great and even had a small solo part. At the end of the week they put on the production for families very fun!

Jenna is finishing swimming lessons she informed me that she was really good at SINKING and needed some help! I am hoping this will do it!

Madelyn is loving gymnastics I think her favorite is forward rolls! I wish I could say it how she does, it is so darn cute!

We headed back home for a second family get together on the Yates side. We went to LAGOON, and spent the fourth of July holiday in Utah with family. We had a great time!

Back at home we are working on the never ending landscaping job we started at the beginning of the summer. We might have bit off a it more than we can chew with this one. We will see if we can finish it before the snow flies......

We just had some visitors from Kentucky the Harp family! So fun, I am so glad they stopped by on there way to visit family.

Other than that we are just trying to keep up with our life as we know it. It can be a bit overwhelming at times. It is certainly busy around here.

To name a few..... crash course in city politics as we try to take a stand against Medical Marijuana. We currently have over 90 businesses in Billings alone!! It is completely out of control.

Chaperoning white water rafting youth trips.

Gardening, or atleast trying my pepper plants are still only 6 inches high!

Had a Yard sale, Huge flop!!

Chasing 4 kiddo's........

Madelyn asked me the other day "How many I was" I told her 31! She paused a minute and then said, "I can't believe your that many and your STILL ALIVE!!"


Dallin is into everything! Somehow I always forget how busy they get, and the trouble they find. We are to the baracade stage. Only it doesn't keep him in! He can get the outlet covers out of the outlets, climbs stairs, and anything else he can!! I have decided the only real difference I have noticed between girls and boys is that he loves FOOD! He also throws everthing toys, balls, shoes, etc. We love him, and hope he gets some hair soon!

Random Photos

Jenna's Snow Woman! Started out as a group project and then she was left behind to finish. Did I mention it was only about 5 degrees out! brrrrrr
Madelyn in her own little world of dress-ups! She was playing school and she was the teacher. She has a fabulous imagination! I love these glasses they have no lenses in them. My kids LOVE them.
Kaitlyn for some reason you are never too old to eat snow!
I can only hope that they abide by the "don't eat yellow snow rule" !
It must be good! I love Madelyn's face! Yummy:)
Our handsome little man. Dallin 2 Months old getting ready for church.
Pam this one's for you!! GO CARDS!! I found this outfit before madelyn was born at a yard sale in Kentucky. Finally someone to wear it. Although he is so slippery in it you can hardly hang on to him, kind of like the football this year.........

Baby Update

So you might have noticed I took my baby ticker off. I have a weird phobia! I will post pictures after we have had our not so little guy!
By these pictures of our ultrasound you can tell he is quite a chunk!! Weighing in at 5lbs 15 oz already!

I just love how full his cheeks are, and look at those sausage fingers! He would't put his hand down.

The things they say.....

So the other night the girls were all tucked into ONE room. (No one wants to share a room with a BOY!) The conversation went like this:
Kaitlyn: Holding your middle finger up is so bad! It is like the worst bad word ever.
Jenna: Is it worse than littering?  (WHAT?)
Kaitlyn : Yeah, way worse....
Long pause
Jenna: Is it worse than tattoos that are permanent? 
Kaitlyn: (getting slightly annoyed) YES Jenna
Pause again
Jenna: I bet it isn't worse than getting surgery on your neck!!  
Kaitlyn: (really annoyed this time!) Jenna I don't know.......

Apparently we take littering VERY serious around here, but not as serious as surgery on your neck!!! I couldn't stop laughing it was such a random conversation! I love my girls.

As were driving the other day we had just left one of the hospitals. We were trying to decide which hospital we are delivering our baby at. Madelyn asked if they had a toy room at the other hospital. I told her I didn't know if there was a toy room or not. Then she said " Well Toys just make me comfortable!" WOW that is a big word. It was so cute and so funny.

Surprise!! We are having a BABY! We waited until we knew what we were having to tell our families. (Thinking another girl was on the way, and we would draw out to the excitement that way!)

Surprise it's a BOY! 

We are still a little unsure how to coordinate the color BLUE with all the pink we have going on but I think we will manage. 
The girls have been cute no one wanted to share a room with a BOY! So we have piled them all into one room and they LOVE it! They are all very excited, and can't wait to put those little maternal instincts to work.(poor little guy doesn't stand a chance with all the little mommy's we have in this house.) Fortunately they will be back in school when he arrives. Whew!
