Warning, disgusting birthing picture (edited)

As most of you know I wanted to get pregnant last December, um, I changed my mind. So I decided fine, I want a March baby, I'll get pregnant in June. Um, I'm not going to, cause I don't want to be sick for our vacation in July. So I decided I would get pregnant in September, but now my sisters might be doing a girls trip (first time ever) to NY in the fall and I definately don't want to be sick for that. Also, look at this beautiful collage I put together. First off, we have me at 240lbs...gross! I'm almost 100lbs down from that and I don't want to do it again. 2nd, we have the deliver of the worlds biggest baby, ok, not really, but I just don't feel like doing that again. 3rd, we have the midwife freaking out about the biggest baby's biggest head. NOT FUN!

But then I went through a few more pictures and came up with this. Even though the delivery day wasn't one that I think of fondly, we did get a Baby B out of it. The first pic is his delivery day, the second two are within the first 2 weeks. Ahhh, I do want a baby, but I really don't. Blah! So anyways, there's my story of why I have a 2 year old, am a mormon mom, and am NOT pregnant. I'm just a little confused and selfish right now...back off!!!!


This is a girl that grew up here in town. She's one of those girls that is pretty much too good for anyone, you can see that she's beautiful, she's funny, and she's really smart. Hopefully this guy knows what he's in for.
These shots were taken in her paren'ts awesome backyard...oh and parts of the neighbors back yard.

Wedding #1

On Saturday I shot a wedding for a girl here in town. They have the most amazing house, not only for JC but for real. They got it all landscaped in a couple of weeks for the wedding too. ANyway, it was a lot of fun. Her colors were lime green and red...very different. I liked it!

Cake top A family of 10 kids....6 girls.
the 10 kids and a spouse and parents
just cute!
It was a lotta fun....cant' wait for #2 on Friday!

My boys...

I know I've had alotta posts about this guy lately, but seriously, look at him! He points to all of his parts now. When you ask where his boogers are he breaths hard through his nose so some come out. He knows his bum, he knows his belly, and he lifts his shirt and you have to squeeze his belly. This is obviously a "where's your eyes?" picture. And a "where's your muscles?" picture
And I LOVE that he falls asleep all over the place. This one kinda freaks me out though, he looks dead. He's soo cute though. This is in the middle of our kitchen floor!
And my big boy. I LOVE this picture. The school took them and sent home a big ole pack for us to buy. We decided not to, and then shoved them under the couch I guess. So I guess we bought the whole thing. But we ain't payin til they send collections after us (to be true to our redneck ways)

Not a big deal.....

So, I really didn't even put much thought into J's kindergarten graduation cause I didn't think it was that big of a deal. I did want to get him balloons, and a few one dollar bills to congratulate him, but as far as the actual promotion being a big deal, I didn't think it would be. Um, I shed a tear! How lame?!
Anyway, here's a pic of him and I in windy windy windy JC right before the graduation. He's a cool looking dude huh? Defiantely cutest in his class.Ok, and they shoved him in the back row!!! do you see him?? Sad. Oh, and not to mention putting a TALL girl with huge pigtails right in front of him. This was our view the whole time.
Ahhh, and his part! Seriously he did amazing He said it nice and clear with his cute little voice. Hopefully Jase can figure out how to get it on the computer so I can share. Here's what his part was:
In APril we learned about Dinosaurs from the Raptor to the Rex
Some were gigantic and fearsome, they might have been easy to vex.

And I told him to look cute for a pic in the hallway of the auditorium. This is what he came up with.

And Grandma took a nice pic of the family. Yes, J is the little one peering over my,...blah!

Congratulations J! You're awesome! And even though Hutchins threatened to not pass you because of your excessive tardies/abcences, I knew you'd pull through!!! Oh, and needless to say, Jaden didn't get any of the 4 "attendance" awards. We gave him the cool award, much more important...ask Grandpa Hatch.

It's a BIG day at the Mulder home...

K had her last day of preschool today. She'd be the adorable one sitting right by her teacher with a huge cheesy grin. She has had so much fun at this school with Jeri. She has learned a lot about her letters, numbers and colors. Even though I'm holding her back another year, I'm glad I put her in this preschool. During the awards ceremony Jeri gave the kids awards like "quickest to pick up on things", "most helpful", "great with numbers", etc....K got "wittiest". She said it takes a really smart girl to use the part of her brain to be a good tease, and I got a kick out of listening to the things K has to say.". Something to be proud of doll! Love ya!

Bear Canyon Lake

This weekend we took off (on Sunday after church) and headed out towards Chevlon Lake, but ended up going to Bear Canyon Lake to camp for the night. There were TONS of Elk along the way, Jase decided to get out, track and take a's what he got...because I honked our loud old horn. Ha! Mmmm, fire roasted hot dogs. You know you want some!
And this is everyone's "camping face"
And you all know by now that I can't resist taking a few dozen pics of this guy

J and K gathered rocks, sticks and pine needles for the fire

In the morning we headed down to the lake. There was only one other person there til about noon, then a couple came out. But it was still really quiet and nice. I worked on my tan while the kids caught "tadpoles" (minnows) and B just walked around singing and Jase tried really hard to catch a fish...he had poles set up every 20' or so.
"tadpole catching"
The "catch of the day". Sadly, this was the biggest catch of the day. Good job J.
And we ended our camping trip witha little diaper changing on the log. Look at that cute bum! Oh, and YES I was there, but Jase only knows how to use my camera to take pictures of sunsets and elk...and I forgot to ask Jaden to take a few shots.
Good times. We're going camping June 7-9th if anyone wants to come or recomend a great camping place.

Crap He's 2!

Here's baby B on his last day as a 1 year old. You can't spend the day any better than on a tricycle, big boogers out of both sides, and in your favorite PJ's. It was a good day. And his first day as a 2 year old. I hate that he's 2, I'm begnning to feel pressure to get another one underway, but he's soo sweet I don't feel like I NEED another one yet. He was pretty much the king of his own party. He stayed in his high chair for a good half hour eatting his pizza and cake.
Then when we got him out of coarse he just wanted me to hold him....and of coarse I wanted to!
Um, ok, I really sucked at throwing this party. It was supposed to be barnyard and I had that all planned, then last week I realized we had extra stuff from Jaden's curious george party 2 years ago, so we decided to use it all, um, and I forgot about games. SO I made a quick "pin the hat on the monkey". Luckily the monkey is hidden in this pic. It was scary!
And this is the little cake that B got to dive into.
He preferred to pick the sprinkles off and stay clean. Gotta love that.
And here are the 3 little monkey cakes for everyone else to eat. Thanks ma for helping me get these suckers together all day.
And I forgot to take pictures of him opening gifts until the last one (hence the mess)
He would open a gift up, and make us all wait while he took it all the way across the room to show it to grandma. EVERY GIFT!
And of coarse a picture with his favorite grandpa!
Happy birthday Baby B! STOP GROWING!!!
Oh, and if you want to watch the cute little slide show I made for him, go here:

Last week B didn't act grouchy, or anything, and he was playing, and then got glued to the TV mid play slowly leaned into the love sac, and BAM!

My mamasita! I know, I'm a day late, but there were technical difficulties with the interview. Anyway, she's still the best. She always kinda had a hard time with me, the weirdee of the family, and the one who made fun of the cheerleaders whena ll the rest WERE cheerleaders. The one who didn't like going to the malls and wearing the cute clothes, the one who wasn't interested in boys til her senior year (you should be grateful for that one ma!). But now that I've somewhat grown out of some of the extreme weirdness, I think we're closer than we've ever been and I LOVE IT! She's awesome, and she's taught me so much about everything! Seriously to this day I call at least twice a week with the ole, "ma, how do I_________?" Today it was a sewing machine question. I worked on the thing for an hour and she came over and had it fixed in 2 seconds. Genius I tell you! And the kids LOVE Grandma! Anytime we set foot out of the house they ask, "are we going to grandma and grandpa's?" We're going to miss them when they move. Anyhow.... A mom of 5 girls....AMAZING! Seriously I have the hardest time with my one little attitude, I couldn't imagine 4 (I was perfect) She does a great job!
And look at the hot mama here. I think this was taken when she was about 40, give or take. HOT! And of coarse, below, Boss loves "dad"....that's what he calls most everyone, but he screams it when he sees her.
