Happy Birthday Josh

True to form the Birthday Boy was all a twitter with his up coming birthday. There is nothing better than a birthday as a kid. Having friends and family around a party in your honor. I would say that the "spooky" party was a hit. The kid had a wonderful time and he went to bed with out a hitch. (always a sign of a good day)
First on our list of activities was the trip up to get our two favorite boys. When these boys get together anything is fair game. Josh wanted to mini-golf with the boys, so after picking them up we headed to say Hi to Grandpa Brad and than to golf.

Watching these boys golf was so funny.

Strike A Pose!!

This fabulous find was from James. Anything that has an evil undertone will fit right in with Josh.

It was such a fun day. I think my favorite part was climbing into bed. I was beat. It was a really fun day and thanks to everyone that called, and came by to wish Josh Happy Birthday.

Saturday Brad and I headed down to Richfield Utah with his study group for a day of four-wheeling. It was nice to met all the members of his group that he spends so much of his time with now days.
After a breakfast in Richfield we drove to Marysville to get get the four wheelers and headed up the Big Rock Candy Mountain.

At the summit. On one side was Marysville and the other side was Beaver. It was an amazing ride.

A picture is worth 1,000 words. Need I really say more. I asked Josh what he was doing and his reply was, "but it tickles".
Thanks to a fab meals on wheels. What would one do without my little angel making sure Tuesdays and Thursdays we are taking care of.


James started flag football this week. It is so funny. The first play James was just running pulling the flag of anyone not on his team. (We are such good parents) He figured out that it is just the person with the ball. Good Times!!!

Happenings at the Bentley's

As a prego stay at home Mom there is just not alot that happens to share with the blogging world. I guess most of the time I post for my own journal purposes.
The other day Jamie asked Josh, "do you have the best Mom in the world?"
After a dramatic pause from Josh he looks at Jamie and replies, "Maybe."
Clearly, not much exciting happening.
Josh's new sleeping companion. I don't know if he is afraid of something "evil" or what. The kid loves this baseball bat.

First day of 1st grade.

James' first day of first grade. It tugged at my heart strings a little bit. The first day we both did ok, but the second day of school James was having a hard time and I tried to be the "strong supportive Mother" (soon after he went in I fell apart).
This is the first day so YES he looks happy.

Josh's first day of preschool. His kid could not wait for school to start. He asked about every 15 minutes if it was time to go. He informed me the "I try to do my best at school". A little nervous at what he might teach the other students.

Earlier this week we had our 20 week ultrasound and to our relief everything looks great. All ten fingers and ten toes appeared as well as all major organs. Lucky, we were told we have a "test book" baby on the ultrasound. Brad and I both walked out feeling very blessed to have things looking so good. And NO, we did not find out the sex of the baby, but being a Jensen through and through I have decided that I think it is a boy. My only reason behind this is my willingness to prove people wrong. No offense to any that have made this prediction to me, but I have heard it so many times and I really don't care. I am just grateful for the fact that everything looks well. So to all you getting female vibes, I am going to go with a boy. (I think Brad really wants a Bentley Basketball team)

Here are the new little sport bodysuits that I bought.
I guess if we end up with a little girlie we can put an orange bow on. Really, it will take some time for us here to get use to having a girl around.
