You Stink like Fish!!

Well, Life is still going... Michael is still looking for a job and our house in Idaho still hasn't closed (maybe we will move back into it, it is still ours). We are hopeful that something will come through hopefully sooner than later. (I am not sure how much longer I can handle having Michael invade my space. Husbands are definitely supposed to have a job otherwise marriage wouldn't last long:) I do know that having nothing to do is driving him more crazy than me though. I went fishing with Michael and Syd the other evening and I am proud to say that this city girl out fished the country boy. (And don't let him fool you by saying he wasn't trying :)

First bass caught all by himself!
The kiddos are all great Seth is still our silly boy and is getting so big. James gave him an Xbox and even though I was against doing the gamer things again the boys won out. Seth and Michael have had some fun with it together. I think that Seth will have some adjusting to do when Michael gets a job again. He has really enjoyed having his Daddy around to entertain him. He has been able to do a lot of fishing and both kids have really loved it. When he was reeling in the Bass he kept saying "A little help here." But Daddy wanted him to do on his own.

(I've been practicing photography on the girls, it's so fun!)
Sydney is still a mess as usual. She is singing in the background right now and I can't help but smile. She is starting to look more and more like a big girl, She has had a a growth spurt and is getting so tall. She is still in love with her bunnies. Last week the neighbors dog got one of the bunnies in its mouth. Syd was so mad she keep saying "No puppy it's not food!" I couldn't stop laughing as I was trying to rescue the bunny. I am happy to report that 'Hot Milk' is doing fine and that there were no injuries to report.

Chloe has been very bad lately. (I have a sneaky suspicion that it is because her daddy likes to hold her.) She as learned the art of "I know your there so pick me up already!" She has two teeth on the bottom and loves baby food more than I can recall Seth or Sydney liking it. So far I think her fave is Squash but she really hasn't rejected anything yet. She prefers orange colored food but we are slowly working on the green stuff. She is at a fun stage where you can get her to giggle and smile.

Now we are off to good old CA for a visit, YEAH!!

While in South Caroline Chloe got go swimming for the firs time. I was a little nervous because she hates baths and screams the whole time. But she loved it. the temperature of the pool was perfect and she didn't even fuss. She stayed in the water for about 20mintues then slept in her car seat while the other kids swam and swam and swam.

Then she sat up today! I know, I think I almost cried. I have been wanting her to sit up but now that she can it makes me a little sad. She does look so adorable though!

Gotta Love Cousins!

Buffington Cousins

We went to South Carolina for the weekend. We had great weather it was a lot of fun and so relaxing to just let the kids play outside and hang out. I love watching my kids playing with there cousins and making some great memories.

Heavenly Father sure knew what he was doing when he put us in families. It's funny how you learn to appreciate them more as you grow up. My older sister Lindsay is an inspiration to me. She is a great mother and wife, Sister and friend. She is not a complainer and is an example of strengthen and love. I love you and your sweet family.

After The trail of your Faith

We hear it all around us that times are hard and we all face a world where the influences of Satan are found all around us. It can be discouraging if we let it. But the light that the gospel brings is inspiring. I am so lucky! I know where are came from, who I am and where I am going. I know that my family is mine forever and their is no doubt that this life is not the end. I have learned that life can be a lot simpler than we tend to make. But it sure can be hard.

Life in Tennessee has not turned out has well as we hoped and believed it could have. The Lord is teaching us many lessons and the these trails we are facing during these uncertain times have reinforced the truths that I have been taught. The gospel is true!
