Just a few updates

Life has been good lately!! Always so nice to have a long weekend! We had some friends over for Labor Day and mark made amazing shredded BBQ beef tacos and Spanish rice and even hand fried corn shells! All gluten dairy and soy free ha ha!

But we had a couple sleep overs the pictures of mark and the girls on the couch is only minutes before them all asleep! 

Kensi lost her first tooth!! On Thursday she was soo excited! The tooth fairy brought her $2 which I thought was very generous of her and she woke up and said I always thought the tooth fairy would leave me a prize not money!! I was worried but then she said "but I'm so excited I got money!!" 

Avy is still doing good as u can see I think we might take her off gluten as well but this month is going to be a lot of experimenting!! So hopefully I can do this! We have done pretty good so far! If anything it has forced me to make homemade dinner every night which is good!! The picture is of her all formal in her cook ware her favorite outfit at my friends !!

Brixton is good he got his first tooth but I probably wrote about that in my last post!! Still happy smiley kid! Many love him I often don't see him at church at all because he is being passed around! Even Sunday there was a visitor the Lured him under my bench by shaking her keys and now that he is moving good, he went right under to her! She was very excited! And he was excited to get the keys!so win win! The other picture of Brixton is when cleaning out marks closet the girls dressed him up! And avy bonked his head then got him a bandaid!!

Everything else is great! We r blessed is so many different ways! I always love fast Sundays and the strength. that they give! Grateful to be in this church!!

Utah Trip Take One

Our trip to Utah Was wonderful!! And thanks to mark we have now figured out how to blog from our phones much easier on me!! So unfortunately I took most of my Utah pictures on my camera but here are a few of us off my phone... The flowers are from mark!! He had them sent to me while he was home! Soo sweet!! There is a couple pictures of us at the zoo with our London cousins that was a blast!! And the picture of avy holding dresdyns hand was soo special she just decided to hold it and held it for a while!! And last but not least is a picture on the way home with our very tired girls!!

More pictures

Kensi on her first day! My three crazy kids and snuggling in Brixtons bed! And avy at our last gastro appointment! Fun fun pictures yeah!!

Family and cuts

Well we haven't used our ipad for pictures lately so I only have a few to post until I plug in my camera! First picture is our family last week for church! Brixton is close to 6 months old now and got his first tooth last week! He is now sitting, well until he face plants it anyway. He is also attempting to crawl! He gets from point a to point b really fast!! But hasn't mastered crawling! He is still an easy going kid In spite of he cold he has right now!!

Avy is doing good and being Avy, our problem child! Many of you know she was recently diagnosed withEoE (eosinophilic esophagitis) like her daddy! So we r just trying to eliminate foods to figure out what is causing the swelling in her throat!! We r currently eliminating dairy and soy!! Little did I know soy is in everything!! Ahh but I'm learning the less processed the food the less likely it has soy! So I'm going to be cooking a little more so I know what ingredients are going into my food!! Mark is going to be doing this elimination diet with her so hopefully all will go well and we will keep you posted as we have only been doing this 2 days ha ha!!

Kensi is our big kindergartner!!! She loves it! And hasn't had too many melt downs so far, which for Kensi is huge!! She got her name on the board one day for talking so much and was so devastated I don't see it happening again! Her teacher is mrs mann and has 30 students 20 of which r boys and no assistants so my friend and I are going to try and switch off babysitting so we can help in class!! The other pictures are first of all her blanket was getting so worn that one night I went in her room to check on her and it was wrapped around her neck twice, scared me to death so next morning it was cut into pieces! The last picture was back to school hair cut I cut more than I was planning but after i measured it and realized I cut 8 1/2 inches so I'm wishing I would have cut another 1 1/2 inches and donated it! But I'm very grateful that it is shorter makes school mornings much nicer!!

As for mark and I nothing has changed! We r playing on a co-Ed softball team and we won our first game mark tore his hamstring in the process ending up with an enormous bruise above the knee but I think it was worth it! I'll post pictures of Kensi's first day in a bit!!

We are feeling blessed for all we have and for a strong growing family!!!!

4th on July

After a long ride to Utah we r finally here!! Avy decided to get sick right before we left and so we decided to go for it anyway but I felt bad after because we went to organ clinic to find out she had massive double ear infections with a large change in elevation probably didn't feel good!! So because of that she also threw up most of the way but we made it!! About 10 minutes after we arrived mark was already in the water and Avy was already wearing dresdyns swim trunks!!

The fourth was only a few days later and was great!! Woke up and drove dads car In the parade then headed to henefer for the fair that was extremely hot but fun!! Then back to the London's for water fun!! Mark set up an obstacle course that all the kids ran followed by mark and sure enough Liam was the ultimate winner!! Next was an incredible meal of boneless ribs and Dutch oven potatoes!! And incredible fireworks put on by Phil finished off a great Fourth of July!

Father like son

Becca found the outfit that mark wore as an infant so I had to take pictures even though mark is a little bigger I think they are so much a like in different ways!! I'll probably try again in a couple of months when brixton gets a little bigger!!

So I have been awful at posting so sorry for that! Today I'm just trying to get caught up a little and ill post more pictures as I load them! But as for now this is what we have. Kensi started kinder camp and has loved it! It is a month long transition program to prepare kids for kindergarten. She is doing great and has made lots of new friends!! Just getting her to go to bed at a decent hour is the hard part now but good practice for me for when school starts!!

Brixton is now almost 4 months old and I'm trying to hit milestones with the tractor so I can watch him grow!! The picture in the tractor is 3 months old!! He is so much fun and really only cries in the car!! Dreading the drive to Utah but I think we can make it!! Brixton just got to go to girls camp with me and we had a blast!! Turned out to be a great year! I did a lot of the certification before we left so we could spend more time enjoying each other at camp and that worked out beautifully!!

Avy is doing great other than still being a bad sleeper! I think we have just developed a bad habit but dr thinks it might be her stomach so we have started her on omeprazole and we r going to scope her next week!! So sad I swear Avy has just got some bad luck!! But although still very mischievous she is soo much fun! And now that Kensi goes to school she has become my little helper!! I love it!! Anyway just a quick update for now and I'll post again soon!!

And the last two pictures. One is of our girls weekend when mark went to Utah we had a spa night that was a lot of fun!! And the last picture is our friend that loves to hold brixton in one hand! I can't decide if I think it's cool or scary!!
