Haley's 5!

Haley's Birthday was yesterday, she had a Camp Rock party. OK, I wouldn't call it a party, it was grandma Kuhn having us over for Haley's favorite dinner(tri tip, salad and mashed potatoes and gravy). All of Haley's preschool friends are gone so we didn't have a big party this year. Ive told her next year for the past 3 years but, I'm serious this time. Her Cousin Kylee and friend Zoe did come. It was very mellow. I've decided I should post some pics of me with my kids so when they look back they will know they had a mom
Here is Haley at her little table with Zoe and Kylee...bunch of DIVAS!

So I tried to make a barbie cake for Haley. It turned out OK. I just get mad when they don't turn out perfect, but I'm learning. Wait till next year, I'm practicing. Nice smile Haley

Today I made cupcakes for Haley to take to school. Didn't they turn out cute. What a difference piped on icing and a cherry ball makes.

I love my big girl. She is a real good kid, very sensitive to others and that's important to me!

My Benny!

So I never give my hubby much blog love, so this blog is for you Ben. (he will never read this)I feel bad because whenever Ben decides he wants to do something I throw a fit. For example, the entertainment/bookcases below. One day he brought home a book on how to build bookcases and said he was going to do it. I got mad and said he would destroy the living room and wood would fall on our children etc. It took him only a few days and this is what I got. I know I'm a jerk. Then I went to Arizona to visit my sis and came home to this. I always said I wanted a laundry room and he and a friend did it. Its right outside my door leading to the garage. Its a perfect little room to hide my laundry mess. I love it!( the counter and under shelves go all the way across. They wouldn't fit in the pic)
So, yes, I'm a lucky lady. He also always takes care of the older girls. He always gives them baths
and does the whole bedtime routine, books, scriptures,prayer and a song. Ben has a great voice and sings church songs to them. The rare times I do it the girls say "sing a song", when I start they so "oh its okay mom, never mind" Ouch! Anyhoo, My girls adore him and so do I. Maybe I'll show this to him to prove my undying love.

Growing up!

Here is Haley on her first day of Kindergarten. My baby's a big girl now. I have to say it was a little hard for me to let go. But, she got a great teacher who is actually Mormon so I feel better. She did well her first day except, she didn't get the concept of a snack. She ate her whole lunch for snack and had nothing at lunch. Poor thing, we've gone over it since then.
Claire had a hard time as well. She misses her sissy all day and repeatedly asks when we get Haley.

Today I heard here talking to Haley but, Haley was at school. I came to find her putting her big dolls to sleep and asked what she was doing? She said Haley and me are taking a nap. She pointed to the doll. I guess she really does miss her sister....I'll remind her of that next time shes punching her!

My sweet Addy was blessed 2 weeks ago. She is such a good baby. I am really blessed. Here she is doing what she has grown to do often, sucking her fingers. Everyone tells me shes hungry but, she does it all the time even right after I feed her. I think its kinda cute...for now. Oh and thanks for the bow aunt Holly.

Here's the family. It is so weird to think I have 3 kids. I feel old.
