HaPpY BIrTHdAy bRoGaN !

Here we are at Paddingtons to celebrate Brogans 2nd Birthday, and Deons and kyle's and Nicks!!! We decided instead of going to someones house lets just go out. So Paddingtons it was. When my Family gets together it is madness. So for those poor people who decided they wanted to go to Paddingtons that night for dinner. I appologize, for the loud screaming kids, and for singing happy birthday four times in a row. And for the children running around and yelling. I'm sorry!!!! But that's what happens when we get together!!!!!

The little amigos. oops! looks like we had an accident! Oh well, Marley's got it taken care of. :)
Brogan and Deacon are absent in this picture, they get to sit with the adults. These kids are crazy when we get together. Pretty soon they'll be out numbering us adults. Right now there are 12 adults 13 if nanny is with us. And as of now there are 9 kids. The 10th grandchild will be here in 1 month.(wow Gina, not much longer,) It will be so exciting to have a baby in the family again!

Here's the Birthday Boy! i can't believe Brogan is TWO. My little boy is little no longer! Kids, they grow up so fast. This year being home, Brogan now gets to share his birthday with three other family members. That's what happens when you have a big family. He got to share his birthday party....

With His Anut Deon. Happy Birthday Deon!

With his Uncle Kyle, Happy Birthday Kyle!

And last but not least, with his Uncle Nick. Happy Birthday Nick!

Here are a few pictures of Brogan opening his presents. He was adorable. He was so excited to see what was in those bags. Does he looked excited to you?

Happy Birthday again to Brogan, Aunt Deon, Uncle Nick, and Uncle Kyle!

Home Sweet Home

The Pearson Family is homeless no longer.
Last night was our first night in our new house. It was Exciting.

Even the boys were excited to sleep in their new beds. Brogan slept in a big boy bed for the first time. He did really well. He woke up a couple of times, but never got out of his bed. Good job Brogan!! He's such a big boy.

I took picutres of the house, but for some reason there not downloading. I'll try later.

Well I'm busy today. I have to unpack all of our boxes of clothes, and toys, and blankets. All the fun stuff! At least i left all the random stuff i didn't want in our house in Utah, and all the furniture that was too big to move we left also. So the move wasn't horrible. and I got to buy alot of new things!!
Sorry again for the lack of pictures. There on there way.

Did I have the scare of my life last night or what? Yesturday I took my mom downtown to go shopping. We had a crazy time with my kids, but that's expected when you take them shopping all day. We had just finished and we were on our way home when my mom decided that she wanted to stop at T.J. Max. So we stopped. We were there for a good hour when we finally made it to the dressing rooms. My kids were trying on hats left and right and showing Nana their picks as she was changing. My mom was finally done so I told the kids lets go. Of course Brogan ran the oppostie direction, so i went after him as my mom got all her clothes together that she was going to buy. My Mom and I headed out of the dressing rooms, and on the way out calling for Blaise. My Mom started to panic, "Blaise he's not answering" I told her oh, it's fine Blaise is probably trying on more hats. So we looked by the hats. No Blaise. So my mom and i split up and are yelling "Blaise" No Answer. A good 3 minutes pass by, so now some of the ladies that work there started to help. Then out of nowhere a lady asks me if I'm looking for a little boy. I said YES. She told me that she had seen a little boy wearing a hat outside in the parking lot not too long ago. We all ran outside and started yelling for Blaise, again no answer. At that moment i was terrified. What if Blaise was taken, what if he got ran over by a car, what if.. what if.. what if.. was running through my head. I eventually make it over to my car, when i see Blaise's little face pressed against the window. I threw open the door, and realized not only did he leave without me. The little cowboy hat that he had tried on was placed under my seat. That child, boy did he get it. He had a hard lesson to learn that day. Don't leave the store without your mommy, and don't steal. Ahhhh, looks like we surived another day barely.

Nanny 911 Tip #1

Tip #1 Put yourself In Time Out.

I know sounds wierd , but it works. When you have just had it with your kids and are frazzled, put yourself in timeout. Tell your kids that YOU have been mean to them and that you are going to timeout. They'll be in awe. Go somewhere in the house where you're alone and take a minute to yourself, to whine down and relax. It really works,I tried it, and Blaise got a kick out of it.

Yummy Cookies


It's a yucky day outside so we (Blaise, Brogan and myself) decided to make halloween sugar cookies today. Aren't they cute?Blaise was a big help stiring the batter and spreading on the icing. Brogan just ate the frosting and cookies. Thanks Bro's. We made ghosts, pumpkins, moons, and bats. We're going to deliver them to our cousins once they cool off. Yummy!

Nanny 911

Last night my mom came home late from shopping. She was showing me all the nice clothes she had just purchased for great deals, when she pulled out a book she got for me.
NANNY 911 is what it read. ( Is she trying to tell me something) No, we all know my kids are handfuls. No surprise there. So i started flipping through the pages and ended up reading 70 some pages. There was alot of useful tips. So this morning i woke up at 7:00 AM, and let me remind you Iam not a morning person at all. So woke up really early made my husband and kids breakfast, and started my day. Kids have been in time out atleast 5 times today, and it's only 9:00 am, today is going to be a long day, but so far so good. I love my kids life just wouldn't be as sweet without them. To NANNY 911, thanks for all the great insights, and knowledge. Now it's all up to me to use what i have learned. Wish me luck!

Oregon Our New Home

Hello Everyone!
The Pearson Family is now in Oregon! We moved here in the middle of June. Wow time flies, feels like we just got here. We are staying at my parents house. It's been fun, most of the time. I'm sure my parents want us out, but they won't have to wait too much longer. We found a house not to far from here. We're actually going to live within a mile, of my brothers and sister. Kinda weird, but at the same time it will be really cool. We move in, at the begining of November.
So we still have a good solid month with my
parents. Hopefuly we can stand each other until
then. Hee Hee. My poor parents with my kids

Speaking of the kids. Blaise is Great. He is almost 4. Blaise is so independent. He doesn't need my help for much anymore. He can put in a movie by himself put his shoes on by himself , go to the bathroom by himself. play video games, he's a big boy these days. And when he wants, he can really be a big help. Blaise absolutely loves it here. I ask him once in a while if he wants to move back to Utah, and he always responds the same NO! He loves his cousins.

At Nana's house you can hear if someone is coming up the driveway, so Balise will run to the door to see who it is, and if it's his cousins He'll scream MY COUSINS ARE HERE! It's really cute. He couldn't be happier.

Now Brogan on the other hand. He is almost 2. That just speaks for itself. He is everywhere. He leaves a little trail of where he's been, which is in every room in the house. It's just one thing after the next. Pouring the dog food in the water. Putting the whole roll of toilet paper in the toilet and flushing it, spilling whatever you give him to eat or drink then jumping on it. AHHHHH!

He is cute though, once in awhile. He tries to be just like his brother. Whatever Blaise is doing, Brogan has to do the same. He loves his big brother. They are two pees in a pod.

Steve is working for the big man. My dad. Steve isn't a man of many words, but i think he likes it. The goal is to work with my dad for the rest of the year, and learn the tricks and trade of the business. Then next year he can have his own truck. And eventually when my dad retires Steve will become more of a part owner. So hopefully all works out. When Steve isn't working he likes to snowboard.

We've been having alot of fun while we've been here. The
kids and i have gone to the zoo, the OMSI museum, we also went camping at the Oregon Dunes. We had such a blast

We went to the Zoo with Dustin and Deon's Fam. Had a awesome trip at the zoo. Aren't cousins great!

The Boys had so much fun at the dunes. Neither one of them ever wanted to get of the quad. They are true boys through and through. They're just like their daddy.No Fear.

The kids had a great time at OMSI.

I am always the one to take the picture, so i thought i would take one of myself. :)
