Abby....We love you

As Clint and I were talking in our room today, with no kids to bug us.(It's rare) We were talking about how special our little Abigail is. She has such a cute personality. She is so happy all the time, and you never know what she is going to do next. The other day, last Sunday in fact, she decided she was going to make cherry kool-aid for her and Elsa's tea party that they set up on the couch. She came to me with red all over her face and a look on her face like that was the most discusting thing she had ever had. Suprisingly, she cleaned up rather easy and with the help of the red couch, the kool-aid cleaned up easy too. Red is a good color to have with kids I've decided. She keeps me on my toes all the time. She is always ready for an adventure, especially when it comes to riding 4 wheelers. She also loves her primary(nursery) class.
Ever since she was in my belly, she has been an angel. I was never sick except at night when it was time for me to relax and rest. It was a blessing because I not only took care of my own kids, but my friends kids too a couple days a week. Well, then when she was born, she was always so patient with me when I had to care for Elsa or someone. She must've known she was the fourth child. ( It must take a special child to be the last one born in the family.) She also started sleeping through the night at about 2 1/2 months. ANGEL! She was always a happy baby. Now she is still happy, funny, mischeivious, a good sister, and so much more. We love you, Abby.
I found Abby, one day, playing in the ramen noodles box. I think she was pretending it was a car. Anyway, I thought it was cute so I snap a pictures.

What type of movie would my life be?

What Type of Movie Would Your Life Be?

You life would be a Comedy. Most everything is all fun and games. It's difficult for you to be serious about almost anything, typically seeing the sillier side of things. While this is a great outlook on life, it also makes it difficult for people to take you seriously. However, people are attracted to that thing about you that makes them laugh so hard they pee in their pants (although they will never admit it).

I took another quiz. This one is a little more accurate. Although I think that I'm a little more serious at times than I should be. Just ask my kids.

Where should I live?

What City Should You Live In?

You should live in New York City. America's largest city will ensure that you will blend into the crowd. You are the brooding type--introspective, creative, and eccentric--and NYC's cutting-edge, individualistic culture and ambience will appeal to you.

I took the same quiz that Hannah and Camille did and I agree that it can't be accurate. I would hate to live in New York away from family. Plus I love the west.

I love this country!

I am so grateful for all those who fought for my freedom. This Memorial day we celebrated by doing things together. First, we went out early in the morning and rode 4 wheelers. The kids, all, did so much better this time. I was really surprised to see Abby enjoying herself on a 4 wheeler.Calvin wanted to take Abby for a ride, but I didn't think that was a good idea. Sorry Calvin maybe when you're a little older and more experienced. Here is James pretending to ride. He loved it! Just like his Mom and Dad
Dallin did great too. (As you can see in the pictures and movies). Then, later that day we had a BBQ with Clint's sister, Danielle, her husband, Anthony and James, who also came 4 wheeling. We had a good time. The best part of the day was the end, after Uncle Anthony and Aunt Danielle left. Clint gathered the kids together and talked to them about why we celebrate Memorial Day. It turned out to be a really good conversation, with the boys. (The girls weren't interested, yet.) It's always so nice to see Clint take his role as father seriously and teach our children something valuable. He also has been so great at showing the kids that he respects me and the kids. Saturday, before Memorial day, we were cleaning the house and Dallin was complaining that it wasn't fair and "why should I have to clean up?" I told Dallin, for the 50th time, to just do it. Clint happened to be in the room and said to Dallin.
"Do what your Mother says."
"Why?" says Dallin
"Because we all have to help out around here." says Clint
It may not seem very big to some people, but it was a big deal to me. What a great guy.
On May 29th we celebrated our 10th anniversary and I am happy to report that I love him more today then I did when we first were married. We still have a long ways to go until our marriage is perfect, so I guess I'm glad we have all eternity.
