Watch them grow - times 7!

I thought it might be time to recap my kids - so here we have each of them in a nutshell for now.  They change so fast it's nice to remember their "phases".
13 years old (yikes)
Lover of pinterest, decorating, fashion, and baking.
Piano skills are getting impressive.
Loves that she's almost as tall as Mom.
Struggles to stand up straight

Kabe - not Kabryn
11 years old
Avid reader of books 
Loves scouts, camping, fishing, knives, compasses and outdoorsy things
Wants to build things and experiment
Enjoys friend time and is a great leader
Doesn't like being told what to do.


10 years old
Lover of all things.
Enjoys friend time and being wild and silly with Brigham
Is great at doing storytime for Leisl and Darla
Wants desperately to learn to play the guitar.
Gets sassy when she is in trouble

7 years old (almost 8, he reminds me every day)
Can't WAIT to get baptised (and be a Dad)
Loves riding bikes, playing the wii, watching movies
Loves collecting rocks, sticks, shells, feathers and all other things that shouldn't go in a washer
Breaks things 

5 years old (almost 6)
Smart as a whip - loves math and reading and being a 'big girl'
Enjoys dress-up and babies and dirt and mud and being outside barefooted
Free spirit
Incredibly loud.  always.
Not overly concerned with being a contributing member of society

4 years old
Silly and sweet and still loves to give hugs and kisses - to everyone
Even strangers
Desperately wants to be heard, by everyone, at the same time.
Loves the center stage - particularly during FHE when she has to answer every single question (and take her sweet time doing it).
Tends to throw fits when she doesn't get what she wants.

17 months
Already started going to nursery because he "can"
Incredibly funny and a huge tease
Knows that he's charming and spoiled 8 layers deep
Speaks chinese - or something like it
Is great at waving, clapping, pointing and saying "NO" while smacking you in the face
Didn't want his picture taken
Doesn't do what he doesn't want to do
Did I mention he's spoiled?
