Emmie's Birthaday and Soren Bear

Emmie turned five on the 4th of November. She is getting so big. We love her so much. She is such a big helper and she totally loves Soren. Emmie is very smart. She is beginning to read. I am teaching her preschool so that she can have a chance to learn how to read before she gets to kindergarten. She listens very well and she can clean up messes really well.

Soren is a little monster. We totally love him to pieces. He is a big stinker and oh so cute. He is smart and is on the move non-stop. He can go up and down the stairs, climb on the kitchen table, on the coffee tables, on the couch, almost anywhere the older kids do. He will not cuddle anymore and wants his bree all of the time. He is worse about it than any of the other kids in this family. Oh but we do love him so.

John's the "boss of the plans"

For the last few months John has been working in Lincoln (in Toelle (sp) county). He has been building a water tank. On Sunday John took me and the kids out to see. There wasn't much to see since the water tank has been all backed filled, but we did see the control building that he also built. John has done an awesome job; Will calls him the "boss of the plans". I love John.


Halloween is so much fun for the kids and a lot of work for the parents. When we were little we dressed up one time in our costume and if we were lucky we went to one party. Not the same for my kids. We had a preschool party, Will had a parade and a party at his school, we went to the Christiansen Family party, the Gerber Family party and the ward trunk-or-treat party. Crazy fun, but sometimes I think that it is a lot to do. The kids sure love it.

Emmie was a princess of course, Will was an army guy, Jason was a transformer, and Soren was a spiderman in the day and by night he was a cute little puppy. The puppy costume was too hot to wear in the day.

I just am glad that it is over. Happy Halloween!

This was the last camping season of the year. Our family loves to camp. The kids absolutely enjoy every bit of it.
Will is so fun to go camping with. He always wants to get a fire going. This time I caught him restarting the fire after the flames had been out for a few hours. He stirred up the coals and blew on the hot ashes and got the fire going again. He loves to burn the end of a stick. He claims that he like to roast marshmallows but really he just wants to catch it on fire. We gotta watch that boy real close.
Emmie just loves to play with her cousins when we are camping. She is such a sweetie. She'll make up any game to play and she loves to go on walks when we are camping.
Jason loves the fire too. He likes to pick up sticks and collect rocks. He loves his little cousin Ellie to pieces and he protects her as much as a two and a half year old can.
Soren gets so dirty and will try to do everything that the big kids are doing. He'll eat just about anything and doesn't mind eating dirt. He is a silly baby walking and exploring everything in sight. We love him.

Soren's first birthday!

Soren turned one years old on September 4th. We celebrated his birthday while we were at Disneyland, but celebrated again with the Gerber side.

Soren is so funny. He is such a stinker and so strong. He is starting to take his first steps. He is so wiggly and a pain in the butt to have his diaper changed. Half the time when John gets home from work Soren has no pants on because it is just to hard to wrestle with him. Most of the time it is a two person job to get him dressed. He has ripped the decorative wood thing off the back of the changing table and we always seem to get poop on the cute changing pad. Seriously he is a monster to get changed, oh but we love him.
