6 quirks or habits of mine...

Well...
1) I always pick at things. Pimples, hairs, fuzzies, splinters, peely skin, boogers in baby's nose, cradle cap, my lips, belly button lint... you get the picture.

2) I always bite the insides of my cheeks. So if you see me doing kissy lips, it's not because I like you.

3) I love cutting nails and toenails... this kind of goes along with picking alittle. But if you ever want a pedicure...I'm your girl.

4) I'M ADDICTED TO SIERRA MIST! There, I said it. I love it, I love it, "and I don't care who knows it."...Elf

5) I can put my legs behind my head. If you have been lucky enough to witness this one, then you are a true friend. Eric thinks it's weird.

6) I'm a journal writer. I think it's so fun. I'll even get 6 months behind sometimes, but I will write for a week straight to catch up. Hopefully someday someone will read them and laugh.

I hope you enjoyed these... now it's your turn!

We love Gordon B. Hinckley!

We heard last night that our sweet prophet had died. It was definitely bitter-sweet news. Although I am sure he couldn't wait to be reunited with his wife. How thankful I am for the knowledge I have of life after death, even eternal life, and exaltation with our families. I am so thankful for the love that President Hinckley has for Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ. As a prophet, receiving guidance from God, he led The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to amazing heights. How blessed we are for the many temples he dedicated; how inspiring are the words in "The Family: A Proclamation To The World"; and how obedient an example of how we all should live the Gospel. There will be another prophet called, and how excited I am to sustain him as well. I'm so thankful for modern day revelation. God does speak to man. I know because He has answered many prayers of mine, and my family's. I love my Father in heaven. I love my Savior. I love Gordon B. Hinckley, and I love my family. What more could I ask for?

More family fun...

A pyramid of cuties!


This is the hoop Grandma and Papa Patrick gave us this Christmas. The kids love it! Thanks Mom and Dad.


And this is what happens when I don't keep a close eye on baby Eliza. Don't ask me how Hannah got her in there.

How do you think they compare?


So everyone is always saying that Eliza is a repeat of Hannah. Eliza is about 5 months here, and Hannah was almost a year and a half. So there is still a years difference, but what do you think? I just think they are toooooo adorable!

I love you guys!

This is my beautiful sister, Rebecca, and her handsome husband, Andy. They are awesome people. They have four smart, talented, and amusing children. And I'm going to miss them sooooooo much when they move. Thank goodness for blogs because I'm going to be checking theirs a lot. I love you guys!

Ummm...


There are no words to write that can explain it! That's Dawson.

Hooray for my blanky!

Eliza just wanted to thank her Grandma and Mommy for her cute quilt!
My mom is so great. We have worked together to make quilts for all 5 kids when they were babies. Hopefully they will have them forever. I still have my blanky from my baby days. Actually, I have to admit, that I slept with it even through highschool. Maybe that explains some things.

Oh yah, we got moves!

Everyday is a party in the Wilkins home, but I thought this was pretty funny. The kids learn all the dance moves from their Dad. I can't wait to post the 2008 dance party later this year! We are working on a dance routine that will blow you all away.
