March Instagram Dump

I have a new nephew! Jeffrey Taylor Young :)

Just had one of those moments then you think "are all these kids really mine?".

An afternoon visitor. #hellospring

First graders are the best!

I asked Lincoln to watch Aidan for me while I made dinner...

The Three Questions

It's that time of year again! Concert time! I got to monitor a lot this year, unlike last year, and I loved it! Especially being in the new building for rehearsals. Such a fun atmosphere.

 The CDT concert this year was "The Three Questions", and I think it is one of my favorites that they've done. Kensie's 7th grade class danced "Childhood Lost", which was a sad dance mourning the king's death. The girls did such a great job! I had fun monitoring the dress rehearsal and got to capture some of their  moments.

Kensie had kind of a hard year this year, and wasn't too fond of her teacher. She stuck with it and after concert realized how much she really does like dance. She's at the stage in life where she compares herself to everyone else, and unfortunately "everyone else" at her school seems to take competition dance and dances like they belong on So You Think You Can Dance. She tried out for Dance Company and didn't make it, and I think that really discouraged her. I think she is feeling better about it now, but at first I think she was kind of mad that she takes this kind of dance and is not like everyone else. It makes me sad to think that things are so competitive now, and I just want her to love dance like I do. We'll see how she feels next year, but I hope she sticks with it :)

11 Months Old

I am in denial that my baby is almost ONE. This cannot be happening....but it is :(

Aidan started walking last week! I was hoping that he'd be my one kid to take their time walking, but no! He is super cute toddling around, so I won't be too mad at him. He has 6 teeth and a buzz cut thanks to unfortunate clipper accident! He is still the happiest baby and loves his siblings so much. He gets into all the cupboards and drawers, loves to try to get into the bathroom (toilet paper!), and bolts for the stairs whenever the gate is down! He's going to be a trouble maker :)

Lincoln's March

Lincoln has had a fun month! He went to his first Pinewood Derby and had a ton of fun! Grandma & Grandpa Holbrook and cousin Becky came to watch.

He also performed in the 3rd grade play, where he was in the chorus and sang songs all about Aesop's Fables. It was so cute! He did a book report on Abraham Lincoln and dressed up and told the class all about himself :)

Brace Face!

Oh boy! Here we go!! Kensie got braces today. She was super excited, and so was I :)

I think she makes braces look good! I am not excited to fork over $4,000, but I am excited for her to have beautiful teeth, and to get braces over with during middle school when everyone else has them, too!

February blahs

 February was a pretty boring month. I think it's my least favorite month. Nothing fun going on except for Valentine's Day. Matt was gone for work a lot this month, too. We did have some memorable moments, though....

We have been enjoying the Winter Olympics, and it brought back memories of the 2002 Olympics! I had to bust out some picutres of Alayna and I at a cross country event and of course the Roots hats!!

We also got to go with the May's to Desert Star, and laughed our heads off when they made Justin come up on stage during the Olio and sang a song all about him! They even got him to dance and sing along! It was hilarious!!

January Instagram Dump

This day always depresses me...

Aidan's got some competition today, and he knows it! The boys don't know what to do with a baby girl around!
21st annual Immediate Christmas party. We should have done predictions ;)

The next Number 72! #daddysfootballnumber

Fun night with my Eddington cousins!

Tonight, only @waffluv for dinner will do!

Kensie didn't believe me at first when I told her there was a painting done by her great grandpa in her Utah History book. #fatherescalante

Wish me luck...


Kensie had her first dance class in their new building last night! Four floors of studios, black box theater, locker rooms, and lots of windows! It's amazing, and I'm jealous that I don't get to dance there :)

9 Months Old

 This kid is such a dream boat! He has the happiest disposition, and makes me smile all day long! He loves to eat big people food and will not eat anything pureed. He loves to sit on the floor and spin around in circles!

9 month stats:
20 lbs. 3 oz. (40th percentile)
28.5 inches (50th percentile)
4 teeth, two chubby legs, one ear infection. Loves to play peekaboo, cruise around the furniture, eat whatever mommy is eating, and laugh at his siblings.

He also keeps me on my toes at church! He loves the glass doors!!

Spy Kids

I can't believe that Lincoln is 9 years old! He is such a good kid when he wants to be, and a stinker when he doesn't! He's quite the instigator when it comes to bugging siblings, but he will always do what I ask without complaining, and still gives me hugs!

 He had a fun birthday party with some of his friends. He wanted a spy party, so the kids all got some shades and moustaches when they arrived! They had to think of a secret agent name, and got their finger prints taken. They played a game where they had to bomb each other (what boys don't love throwing things at each other?!) and navigate through a laser maze. 

Lincoln opened his presents and we had a bomb cake and mini bomb donuts! It was a super low key and fun party, which was good because Matt left to go out of town for a store opening in New Mexico a few days before. He will be gone almost the whole month of January!! Ugh.
Conner, Ethan, Azer, Lincoln, Corban (Jonah came late so wasn't in the photo)


Lincoln also got to celebrate with the Young's on Sunday! He got a sweet Utah hat (that he picked out at the basketball game grandpa took him to) and lots of fun things from his cousins!
