So I have definitely gotten out of the habit of blogging since just before Christmas. I am really wanting to get back into it, so hopefully I will continue to find things to blog about. Sometimes life just seems dull. Don't ask me how that happens with four kids at home. OK, maybe life isn't dull, but it would definitely be dull to someone reading about the 10th diaper I had changed that day. Or the up-teenth time I put Natalie on timeout. Or how about the hundred time I hear "mom, I'm hungry" even though they had just gotten down from the table. Oh the fun times! We have been getting out to enjoy the beautiful weather we have had lately. The sky has been so clear and the mountains have looked gorgeous. We spent lots of hours at the park this week. Sorry, no pictures of that. But here are some pictures of the past couple of weeks.

This is the set-up we have for the kids right now. We tried to put Spencer in a room with Tanner, but he wasn't going to have anything to do with it. He didn't want to be in a room by himself since Tanner isn't going to bed at the same time as them. We got this bunk bed set from the Shepard's in our ward. The top is a twin and the bottom is full. It works right now and then once Tanner is more on the others kids schedule we will move the boys into their own rooms.

I love taking pictures of the kids right after the good after the bath. If only you could smell how good they smell too!

Natalie and Tanner are constant companions. If I am not holding Tanner Natalie is asking if she can. If I walk out of the room, I often come back to her holding Tanner like this. I have tried to get her to stop, but she won't. Any ideas? I just don't want her to think that she can pick him up.
This is a classic Bailey face. She had been crying and I asked her to stop and smile and this is what she gave me. What a cutie!
Tanner and his cousin Dallin (Sarah's newest) who are 5 1/2 weeks apart.
Bailey and Taylor (Sarah's second to youngest) who are just 58 minutes apart.

I know what you mean! My life can get pretty boring and I don't think people want to read about it, so sometimes I just go off on a tangent of some sort. Actually I haven't blogged in like a week since nothing has really happened! Love the pictures. So cute!

Your motherhood and crazy kid experiences ARE interesting even though they may seem so dull to you--to those of us who don't know how it really is, it's new and interesting!! :)You are NOT a boring blogger...I'm glad your getting back in the groove!
