Little Beans is Five!

I can not believe that Ben is already five! For some reason with the others I could believe it,but with him it flew by. He is the sweetest little man. He will still cuddle with you. Ben is the happiest,funniest guy. He is often in his own world and he cracks me up! He has always had girls as his friends it does not matter where we live he always makes friends with the girls and they all love him! I think many people have put dibs on there daughters marrying him. He was my only baby born in the evening. He was my smallest baby. He weighed 6lbs. 10oz. He dropped down to around 5 and a half pounds and at his month check up still did not weigh his birth weight. He has always been a tall skinny bean pole. I love my little Ben and can't believe he is starting kindergarten next year. The price you pay for having so many close together is they all leave fast and close together also. I will only have Gid and Ammon home next year. I have not had only two kids home since I only had two kids! For Bens birthday we had his annual valentine party. It was fun. Then his grandparents both sent him gift cards and we took him to Target to get whatever he wanted. I think he had the time of his life. I wish I had a video camera with me. He walked around with this cheesy grin just putting all sorts of random stuff into the cart! He thought it was great!

Valentines Day

It was thirteen years ago that Chase proposed to me! That makes me feel really old! I can not beleive it has been that long. I was so excited! I new he was going to do it, we had gone and looked at rings and he knew what I wanted. I just didn't know if it would be ready in time for Vslentines day. That day Chases brother Sam and his girl friend went to there house for lunch and the ring had arrived and they saw it. Well this girl friend is my older sisters niece so I got the news that the ring was here before it happened. I am so glad that it did. Chase is so perfect for me! I am so blessed to be able to share my life with him! I love him so much and am thankful that we found each other. He is such a great dad,husband, worker, friend and priesthood holder. I always love valentines day, it is my favorite holiday. We seem to celebrate it more than our anniversary. Yesterday we had Chase babysit and we went out for the day. We went shopping and out to lunch and just hanging out. Then we went and got some gourmet food to make at home for dinner. It was alot of fun! I love you Chase.
