So my oldest, Thatcher, just graduated from Primary today and I bawled as I watched him up there getting sang to by all the kids for the last time. Then he chose Army of Helaman as his favorite song and I couldn't even sing :( I'm not ready for him to grow up.

Making her cake!

This would be what she chose as her favorite food!

The guests!

The gifts!

What she bought with her money from grandparents!

Trip Home

LIFE is so crazy right now with nursing school and being a single mom (we miss you Skip). I think about blogging just about everyday but never get around to it. I should be studying for a pharmacology test at the moment but that is just boring! So here we go! This post is all the pics from mine and the kids' trip home from Alaska clear back at the end of July. I know it's all old news, but this is the only way I get my pics of anything out of the files on my desktop!

We hitched a ride to Anchorage with Skips dad and step mom in the motorhome, stopped along the way to see some cool wood carvings, hung out at the airports in Anchorage and Seattle WAY to long, and the kids loved their first time on an airplane (except Thatcher; when he was 1!). The trip home was definately a lot shorter than the trip there!

In the motorhome. This is the way to travel!

Eating at the Chili's in the Anchorage airport after we somehow made it through securtiy. It was not an easy task by myself and four kids!

We had a 6 hour lay-over in Seattle. I stared out the window, fighting sleep, from midnight to 6am so that I could make sure the kids were alright. It was a long night to say the least!

The crew members on Alaska Airlines were great! On the first flight they gave us all the left over movie players and extra snacks. We were in the very back of the plane hanging out with the stewardesses and the kids were fabulous! The second flight Parker, Kennedy, and I all got to fly first class. Thatcher and Hailey were in the first row of business class so I could just turn around and see them but they were a little jealous!! They definately earned their wings!

So I know this is a little out of order, but I didn't get these pics from my dad until the other day and I wanted to post them. This was at the very beggining of our summer in Alaska while my dad was with us. The clam tide was really good and so we headed out to go camping in Ninilchik and get some clams. It was about the coldest day of the whole summer and Skip and I are the only ones who actually ended up even digging for the clams.

We walked the kids all the way out to where we were going just to turn around and bring them right back, crying the whole way about being cold!
Then they sat in they trailer trying to defrost!
Skip digging for a clam. You really have to get into the mud up to your armpit to get them!
Us coming back with our catch! We were SOOOO dirty!

Aren't they ugly little suckers!
Just a little video of that day.

We Will Miss You Winsors!

Lindsay and Wes are officially on their way to Alabama today. I am so sad to see them go but hope they have a wonderful adventure at the same time. Good luck in law school Wes!

Since Lindsay was leaving we decided that we needed to get some pics as sisters (mom is like a sister!). I love my sisters and mom. I am so grateful that we all get along so well and that they are there for me whenever I need them!

Lindsay moving truck was parked outside so we couldn't resist!

Ty and Charlene's new car made for a great prop (and it's fun to drive too!).
