We had such a special and fun day for Gabriella's blessing. She was such a good baby and Ryan gave a sweet blessing. I tried to put gel in her hair, then she took a nap, so when we took her out of the carseat during the opening song of church, we were like"aaaack, what's up with her hair!" But she was still a beauty and Ry gave the sweetest blessing. It was a fun day with family around. We tried to get family pics, but it was crazy windy, but we still managed some good ones. Life is good . The girls have their Dance recitals this week, so lets see if I can set a record and blog twice in one week:)!!! Love, Jules
We are excited to introduce the newest addition to our family.... Gabriella Ruby!!! She was born September 8th and weighed 7 lbs 13 oz( she tied with Brie for the biggest:). She has been such a blessing to our family and is an absolute sweetheart adored by all!
Crazy to think that my first baby is nine! But it's all good because as hard as it is to see them grow up quickly, we find joy in everyday and each of our children hold a special place in our family. Back to May-May... She is very fun and creative, her teacher Mr. Guymon is so pleased and always amazed by her creativity! She is also a very good reader and flies through books before I even know it! Maylie is very responsible and I am amazed at how her and Brie get their bed made everyday before school(or they don't get an afternoon snack:)( oh yes, did I mention that Maylie is highly motivated by food:) and she gets her homework and reading done everyday. I can also see her testimony growing in the gospel and she does what is right. She (as well as the other girls) love to play with her cousins! There is never a dull moment with Maylie, she loves to have fun and be active! She is also on a dance team this year and can now do the splits and is a beautiful dancer! I am so proud of the young woman she is becoming! Love you May!
Ashlie, Ashers, Ashie, or Ash(with an emphasis on the sh part, thanks to Sophie) is what we call our sweet little 5 year old! Ashlie is very smart and picks up on things quickly. She has a really great attitude and her favorite phrase is, "ya...got it!" with a thumbs up!! She plays with Sophie all day and they get along really well. Ashlie is a beautiful dancer as well, when I went to watch her rehearsal for their recital, all of the girls were following her, because she remembered the dance, I was so proud of her for being a leader! She is always saying one-liners from movies to make us laugh, she is really good at memorizing songs and lines. She is also a great little helper in the kitchen, she throws in her apron and gets out her stool to help me. She is just sweet as can be and I just love her to pieces! Happy birthday Ashie!
This post is all about Brianna! She just turned 7!!! And what a darling little mini-me she is turning out to be... With her own special flare, of course! I will lay out some details about Brie now to help us remember her at this precious moment:)!!! She is in first grade and loves her teacher Mrs. Brinton! She has caught the reading bug and has taken off with reading this year!! Her handwriting is bubbly and adorable just like her! She loves to play with Sophie and is really good friend to Maylie and Ashlie and to me!! She is always great to rub your feet when you've had a long day! She also loves to sing ( and is awesome)everywhere she goes and got a cute black guitar with a pink case for her birthday! She has been on a dance team this year and has grown tremendously and has really enjoyed dancing! She is amazing! She says she wants to be a fashion designer, choreographer, and a mom someday!!! I love you Brie!!!! Even though it is hard, I love to see you grow!!!
Yes, I know Christmas 2011 was a while ago, and a few of you may even be planning Christmas 2012 already!!! But, we can't just skip Christmas! I am going to keep it brief and just post a few pics! It was a wonderful Christmas season, the girls are all really sweet to remember the real reason we celebrate the season is the birth of our Savior, they love all the magic of Christmas as well. Grandma Colleen and Grandpa Charlie were visiting Brian and Natalie in Japan so we missed them, but we still had a great time and spent some fun times in Salmon with Ryan's fam!!!
Ryan and I and our 3 little girls live in Ammon, Idaho. We own and manage the Jamba Juice here in town. We have a lot of fun being involved with our business! We also love spending time as a family boating, playing tennis, or sitting in the hot tub! If you know us, you know how we roll..."Party at the Arfmann's!"
