Pictures Say 1000 Words

Pictures say 1000 words.....I just wish I had a picture of my outing with all three boys to the dentist earlier this week. After the dentist we headed to Wal-mart to get some medicine for James, who was in tears. All though wal-mart James is crying about his tooth. Meanwhile Jackson begins into his fit and need to be held. I finally looked at James and told him that if he doesn't pull it together we are going back to the dentist and I will just have the dentist pull out that tooth. That sent James over the top, Jackson crying ready to eat and Josh roaming the toy aisle. I thought, "I wonder what would happen when I leave all three boys in walmart?" I could see the headlines, "Local Mom goes crazy and leaves three boys in the aisle at Walmart" Weighing my options it was rather close. After getting out to the car getting James medicine and feeding Jackson I am dripping sweat. In my attempt to hold it all together I think.."I really signed up for this...."

In my fit of RAGE and many hours (ok days) later...I came across these pictures on my camera and they made me smile. I need to try and remember the good that these the boys bring into my life. Although at times the good seems few and far between.

I can't seem to get enough of this little kid smiles.

This kid is full of any and all thing random. We were sitting outside and out of no where Josh informed me that he can be The Statue of Liberty. WHAT!! Who is this kid. I never know what to expect.

This studious kid got an award at school that his teacher nominated him for. I really shouldn't have been surprised when I received the letter. Clearly, he gets his smarts from his dad.

Lesson for me to learn....There are good moments as well as all the bad and I need to focus on those good moments

FHE with Annie

Monday night we were lucky enough to have Annie for family night. The kid is so fun to have around. Josh loves having someone follow him around.
For dinner Annie ended up having a bowl of chips and about a half bottle of pepper that she sprinkled on the chips. I couldn't believe she ate the chips.

After dinner Josh and Annie headed out into the rain for a little fun.
James had zero desire to play outside with these two. Josh and Annie are two peas in a pod.

Annie was shaking the whole time, but she kept up with Josh. After a warm bath Mike and Jamie showed up and our entertainment left.

Spring Break

Spring Break takes on a whole new meaning with kids. This year we headed to St. George with the parents. This was the first trip with 3 kids. HOLY COW!!! So much work. Maybe I went into this third kid idea blind, but I really think that it doubles the work. So good bye a spring break with some R & R.
It really was nice to get away and be in warmer weather. Could have been alot better, but with sunshine and blue skies the temps were bearable. The kiddos, Mom and I headed down Tuesday afternoon. The first thing to do once out of the car and unpack is swimming.

Jackson's first adventure in the pool. I don't think he knew what to think.
This kid can not get enough. He would swim for sun up to sun down if he could. Even swimmers ear didn't slow him down much.

This has to be one of my all time favorite pictures. We stopped at target for the coke on sale. It was only 10 to a customer and we walked out with 20 12pks of coke product.

I have to say that we hit Target again for another round of coke product a few days later. Over doing it??? With more than half the Jensens addicited those boxes will be gone in no time. Our family alone could keep Coke in business.

Nothing better than Thursday morning when Grandpa and Jen showed up with Adien and Andrew. These boys get together and it is not stop movement. I love watching them all interact.

Soaking in the sun!!

Self proplled boat

The boys playing dead. Looks like alot of fun.

A night with all the kids while Trant and Amy went to dinner. To bad we couldn't get Oakley to look.

This was Jackson's make-shift bed in the closet. It worked out rather nice.

Brooke is getting ready for everyone to go on a Easter Egg Hunt. Preschool material!!
We did an Easter Egg Hunt Saturday while all the men went to Priesthood.
All the kiddos lined up. I think Morgan night have been a little confused as to what was taking place.

James took this picture for us. It turned out Ok. We missed having Jamie and Jill. Maybe next time. We are so lucky that we now have Candice in our family. Our family has been so lucky to get such AMAZING in-laws. Amy and Candice are just like our sisters. Lots of fun, but I am sure I know need a vacation after my vacation.
