Wesson is such a great kid

Jesse lost his first tooth

He came home from school today and said he had a loose tooth and before bedtime he yanked it out. So exciting to lose your first tooth

Happy 3rd birthday Jonah William

This handsome little guy is 3 years old today. We have a joke in our family James Mission president once told him "Your wordy Elder Mortensen". Well this little boy is wordy! His speaking skills far exceed his language comprehension. He is so  excited every morning when he wakes up. He love singing songs and playing with his superhero dolls. He loves dressing up as Batman or Ironman, using his Batman voice, or saying "Hulk smash". He loves his siblings and has a soft heart, he hates seeing anybody else hurt or sad. We're so grateful to be as parents and have the blessing of watching him grow up. Oh and he adores his baby brother Rockwell! Happy Birthday Jonie Bear.

Cute Sleeping Rockwell

Such a sweet happy little guy! We love him so much. We can't leave him on the bed anymore he is wiggling around too much.

Happy Birthday to Sara 35 today!

We went toBeck Family Farm pumpkin patch in Gunnison. 

Royce came home from school today and asked if he could earn .60 cents. I told he could clean the microwavrme for a dollar. He did and asked if he could go to Manti Market. I thought he was going to get a treat. A little while later Royce comes in the house and gives me a container of cherry tomatoes. Such a thoughtful gift. He earned the dollar to buy me a birthday present and he knows I like vegetables. I used them to make a bkack bean quinoa salad. I love my Royce!

Brought to you by Marshmallows

Neccesity is the mother of invention. Shiloh was highly motivated to get the marshmallows off this high shelf. Smart little pumpkin. First she pushed the kitchen island over stood on it and used tongs and a spoon. That didn't work so she got a decor sign and used that. When she got them she was thrilled with herself.
