Happy 9th anniversary to us!

Chauncey sent me an Edible Arrangement for our anniversary today. We had so much fun eating it!

Chauncey looks like he's going right through the strawberry and going to eat me!

Bean sprout

Little Chauncey brought this home last year from school and we planted it. He has nutured it through storms, grandpa helped him stake it, and he has watered it. It's now the end of august and see it?! Amazing.

Sunday walks

Every Sunday we walk and the kids ride. Bella always rides in the front and they all rotate driver. It certainly makes walking easier!
My dad gave this tractor to the boys for Christmas 5 years ago and it has been the best toy investment so far. They all love it.

Mom to the rescue

Chauncey and I went away for a weekend spa trip to Pinehurst with his Doctor friends and wives this past weekend. My mom flew in to watch all the kiddies and she did a great job with ALL 5!

Happy birthday Jack!

Yesterday Jackson turned 6. We were in McDonalds playplace when it happened. I let him stay home from school, play his new video game super Mario bros, took him to the pool and threw him all around in the water, had a tea party for lunch, then to the playplace with happy meals for dinner. We already had a big pool party with a Yoda cake, so I just bought a piece of chocolate cake for today. He loved it! I love you Jack!

Today is our first offer on this house

Here's the house we are offering on today! It feels so good to offer on it. I haven't felt like this yet about any of our options. It's 4000 sq ft in a gated country club. Withing 5 mins from chaunceys new office and the schools. The neighborhood is beautiful and safe.

We'll let you know what happens!

Max's Blessing

It was history in the making....To everyones suprise Chauncey changed Max's name in the blessing! He is now to be called Max Christopher West!
It was a great and wonderful and very inspired blessing that we will cherish. What a wonderful blessing it was to have Grandma and Grandpa West here with us for our last baby blessing.

In the same year we are blessing our last.....and baptizing our first! What blessings!

Our first official offer

We are putting an offer in on a home today! This is our first one, so it's exciting and scary!
This entire time I have been trying to keep things conservative and this home is not! It is over four thousand square feet, in a gated community it's beautiful. I'll try to figure out how to post a picture, but I didn't tAke any myself because it was so craY with all the kids I was great and miserable!
