Happy anniversary Spencer! We have been married 8 years as of today. I couldn't ask for a better husband, father and best friend. I LOVE YOU SWEETIE!!!


Friday night Spencer had some time off, (which is rare at this time of year), so we took the kids to Tautphaus Park Zoo. It was so fun to watch the kids looking at all the animals. They were thrilled to see the Tiger and the baby lions. I think the best part was just hanging out with our own little family for the afternoon. Here's a few pics.


So, the other day I was helping Anna practice her piano, when I heard a faint crying over top of the pounding away on the keys. I told Anna to be quiet, and I could still hear something. I yelled out "Lyndsie. . . Where are you?" She answered sobbing "I'm stuck help!!!!! I followed the crying, only to find Lyndsie in Abby's laundry basket looking quite helpless. I couldn't help but laugh, and I left her there crying until I could grab my camera. It was hillarious!!!

Anna is off to second grade!!! She was a little bit scared and excited all at the same time. She loaded the bus at 7:15 this morning and she walked out the door with nothing but smiles on her face! Have a great day! WE LOVE YOU ANNA!!!


Lyndsie was super worried about kindergarten yesterday, because at back-to-school night, her teacher couldn't be there because her father died and the funeral was yesterday. After a blessing from dad this morning and a little pep talk, she was ready to go! 11:30 felt like forever away, since Anna got on the bus at 7:15. For any of you who have had a first time kindergartener, you will understand how long this morning was! Here is what our morning was like.

7:25 A.M Backpack on. . . .

Taking some pictures to pass the time. . .

Watching T.V. . . (notice the backpack is still on)

waiting for the bus. . . I guess I'll read Dick and Jane



Mom, is the bus EVER going to come ?. . . .

Oh! The Bus is in View!

Have a GREAT day Lyndsie!! WE LOVE YOU!!!

Vivian is almost 4 months old now. Time flies when you aren't pregnant anymore! I have had a few requests to put some pics on the blog of Vivy (sorry Kayleen). I have been so slow! Here she is (and isn't she cute!)


Happy Birthday Lyndsie!!!! Your the big 5!

This is "Baby Alive". I never thought we would have a doll that actually wets it's diaper, but it has been so much fun for the girls. The only downside is buying the diapers!

We spent the day at the school playing at the playground, followed by a little picnic, and then a splashing time at Grandma Silly's pool. You should check out Anna and Lyndsie's
"SWEET MOVES" as Lyndsie would call them!

I will forever be sad when my Abby can pronounce her words correctly. While we were camping, we were making s'mores, and Abby said.... I don't want grahm crackers or marshmallows. All I want is Chotlik!(chocolate for those of you who don't understand). Everyday, we either have Chotlik Milk or Hot Chotlik! Here is a picture of Abby with her Chotlik.


This summer has been totally CRAZY!!!! We have been running from here to there with only enough time to clean up and go again! Just a quick update of what we have been doing though. We started off with Swim camp in June. What a great time. I take the girls to Green Canyon Hot Springs for swim lessons. They have lessons 2 times a day for 5 days, so we just camp there. I have to say thanks to Nicky (Spencer's mom) for coming almost the full time and hanging out with the baby while I chased the other kids. Also a great big thanks to Marilyn for staying a couple of days with me and helping chase kids. Thanks to Ryan for letting her be away from him to come help me! I know that can be a big sacrifice! Here's some pics of swim camp. . .

We left swim camp Friday afternoon, only to return home, unpack, repack, and head to Island Park on Sunday after church with the Simmons fam. What a great time we had camping with them. We spent some time boating and visiting. Some of us went on a raft down big springs. Anyways, thanks to everyone for a great time! Here are a few pics!

We had such a great time together! We got home just in time to clean up again, and off to another party! Anna turned 7 years old on the Fourth of July. We were kind of sick at our house (stomach flu), so we layed around most of the day, and that evening, we joined the college kids in Idaho Falls for the fire works. Happy Birthday Anna! We love you!!!!

Family Picture Time!!!

We had Larsen family pictures on Saturday night. It was pretty crazy. . .but thanks to Lyn, everything turned out pretty good! We were excited to have a picture because this is the first time in 3 years that the whole family was together at the same time!

This is our little (getting bigger) family!

Here is the whole crew!

Look at all the little cousin kids. . . this shot was super hard! Way to go Lyn!


We blessed Vivian on Sunday. It was a great day. We had so much support from our family, and I was overwhelmed with the blessings in our life. We are so happy to have our four beautiful little girls!

Our Sweet "Vivy"

I can't believe she is 2 weeks old already! She has been such a blessing in our home. The girls love having a little sister, and I couldn't ask for a happier baby. Wow, the time really flies once they are born! So, who does she look like?

Water Fun

The other day it actually got warm enough that the kids asked to play in the water. It was not really warm enough to put swimming suits on, so I told them to play as long as they wanted in their clothes. It was only about 15 minutes before they were asking for hot chocolate, but boy did they have fun!

Spencer and His Girls

The other day we were discussing the fact that we have so many girls in the house now. All Spencer could say was "Well, I always have liked girls!"

6 lbs. 14 oz.
This is her cutest picture. . isn't she sweet!

This is at the hospital. . . .she doesn't even look like this now!
The girls can't get enough. I have to fight for the chance to hold her, feed her, burp her, or even change a diaper! They love having a little baby in the house.
By the way, I feel great, I love having this sweetie at home. Everything went well at the hospital and we are glad that the doctor made it on time! (he almost missed the delivery). Everyone was hoping for a boy for us, but we wouldn't trade our little Vivian for anything.
