So not a whole lot happened this week. The most ecitement we had is gymnastics. Haylee and Payton started gymnastics on Thurseday, they LOVE it. They had so much fun working on cartwheels, summersaults and jumping on the trampolines. Pay was a natural at everything, Haylee is pretty good but still needs some practice, I'm really impressed with both of them. They both want to stay with it, good thing, we signed up for the summer. That is the most excitement we had. We had two birthday parties this week and we went and played at McDonalds with our nephew Ammon. At my cousin's daughter's birthday party the kids found tons of snails, it was gross. It poured the whole time and we were at a park, so the snails were everywhere, disgusting. Payton also came home with really nasty blisters on his feet, because he refuses to wear socks and his shoes were soaked through. Then we went to my nephew's son's birthday party today at the same park, minus the rain and snails. They had too much fun playing at the park. It was too hot though, and they came home with sunburns. I also found that I have a milk blister and that is why I want to cry everytime I nurse on the one side. So I am trying to nurse myself back to good health so I can keep on nursing. I guess it was a little interesting, but I have come to realize that we are very boring people. Anyway I hope you enjoyed.

Tomorrow is Aaron's birthday and then Sunday is Father's Day, the kids and I want to tell you HAPPY BIRTHDAY & HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!!!! We love you so much, I'm sorry that we can't be together. We hope that your weekend is a good one. Just remember that we are thinking about you constantly and we miss you so much. You will be home soon and then we will have a birthday party for you. Even though you are far away from us I hope it is still some what good, old man. We love ya!!!
So I have had no time to update our blog, I was hoping that Aaron would post some things, but that has yet to happen. So here is a run down of how that last week has gone for us. Last Friday Payton graduated from pre-school. YAY PAY!! I am very proud of him he learned a lot from teahcer Bekah and is liking school. He loves Rebekah, she did an amazing job with the kids, she is so creative and fun, and best of all she loves what she does and it shows. Thanks Rebekah, you have no idea how much I appreciate everything you did this year at school and as my friend. Anyway graduation was fun, we had a nice BBQ and short program, performed by the kids, it was really cute. Saturday I treated Haylee to the Princess Festival down in Lindon. It was soooooo much fun, she loved every minute of it. The met all of the princesses and princes, they had to help the princes save the princesses. Then they each got a pearl necklace or a pearl ring at the end. They got to watch all the princes and princesses dance at Cinderella's Ball and got to have their picture taken with each royal couple. It was so much fun, they had crafts, activities and booths for shopping. I took alot of pictures and I will post some. She can't wait to go next year, might as well it is all for charity for women in Kenya, we even got to meet the princeeses of Kenya and the ambasador from Kenya, very fun. The kidos got to have a sleep over on Monday night with Aaron's mom and she had them all day Monday and Tuesday, they had so much fun just hanging out and playing. Thanks Cheryl for giving me a break, I appreciate very much. I had to get Emmet circumsised on Moday, he did so good he didnt even cry, of course it broke my heart, but he was a trooper. Then it was just the two of us on Tuesday, so I got caught up on some cleaning, not much cleaning has happened since the other 3 got home. But it is a work in progress. Not much happened on Wed of Thurs. I got the material for a blanket for McCoy and we had a playdate at Del Taco. Then today I made a tutu for my cousin's little girl, tomorrow is her birthday party. I have a babyshower tonight and tomorrow morning. We have been very busy, this week has gone by so fast! Amongst all this I have cleaned 16 eggs off of my kitchen floor and every toy we own has been strung through my house, I'm ready to throw all the toys away and start over. Starting Monday we are getting ready for a yard sale I have alot of stuff to put out and get rid of, I can't wait. Sorry this post is so long and boring, but we really arent that exciting, unless you count the eggs, wrestling matches, and just McCoy. I love him but he is a stinker!

My niece came into town to hang out for a couple of days. We haven't seen her in at least 2 years. Her name is Britny and she is 18 and now living in Georgia. My kids absolutely adore Brit and were so excited to see her!! She got to meet McCoy, Emmet, my other niece Kaitlyn, and my nephews baby Parker for the first time. We were passing babies around like crazy. It gave our family a good excuse to get together and we were ALL together, the only one missing was Aaron. It was crazy and my mom's house is too small to fit us all now. We had a good time together talking and playing the wii. She is amazing with the kids and they were all fighting over her. We love her so much and we can't wait until she comes out again. We love you sweet pea!

Emmet went for his first check up today and he is perfect!! He has gained 4oz in a week and he is 18 3/4 in long. When he was born they said that he was 19.5in long, so they measured wrong or he has shrunk. He is growing like a weed already, but he is still a little peanut. We love him and think that he is one of the cutest things we have ever seen.

I need help, McCoy has been aweful with Emmet. He hits, bites, scratches, pulls and pinches him. I don't know what to do. He acts like he is going to kiss him and love on him then he strikes. He really hates it when I am doing something with the baby and has even pretended like he is hurt to get my attention. It is driving me crazy I don't know what to do. It is making things very hard especially with Aaron being gone. Does anyone have any advice for me? How do I make my kids like eachother? Haylee and Payton have been driving me crazy too with all of their fighting. They fight like crazy and dont like being around eachother. I don't know what to do with them either. I want them to be best friends and want to do things together. The day is usually spent with them fighting and me yelling constantly. I feel like the worst mom ever because all I do is yell, like that helps anything. I need all the help I can get so all advice is welcome.
