Hailey 8 months old

Well our little baby isn't that little anymore she is 8 months old and she is so cute. She is able to scoot herself backwards when on her tummy and she is able to turn herself around when sitting up also somehow she is able to move while sitting up. She is eating some pureed foods and she seems to like them. She is very interesting in everything around her and she loves to giggle at Kaleb.

I think this picture is so cute and show personality and she is showing off all four teeth that she has.

So calm and cute.

This is a picture I took on Sunday trying to get all three kids together. Zoe didn't want to play. Kaleb and Hailey look cute. Kaleb is wearing his new church clothes that he got from Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Ed. He looks so grown up in them.

Hailey all by herself dressed up for church.

Kaleb's birthday

We were able to celebrate Kaleb's birthday when Jason got home from work. It was a little late and when we got done it was time to put the kids to bed.
Jason bringing over the cake for Kaleb to blow out the candles.
Kaleb blew out the candles to fast and I didn't get a picture of them lit in front of him.

So we tried relighting them to get a picture of that but Zoe had other plans so she got to blow out candles to.

Our field trip in our Yard topic bees

Our new place had some ( I use the word loosely) bees under a shed in the back. So we called a guy in our ward that does bees as a hobby. He came out on Saturday. We kept the kids inside and Jason and I got to learn about bees. We took pictures so that we could show the kids later.

This picture has the queen bee in it. She is the bigger bee than the rest. When moving a hive it is better to find the queen so it was exciting to actually find her. Also he said the queen bee was young so that is good.

This is new honey comb that they recently made.
Here is just some of the honey comb that was taken out. He said that in a normal colony that it is I think he said 6,000 or more I am not sure. But a lot. So we are glad that we called him.

Here are some of the bees checking out the new home.

The peanut looking thing on the side is a queen cell and there was another one on it. So that was neat to see.

Jason is holding older honey comb.

This is Leif pulling out the first bit of honey comb. So it was an interesting experiance to watch them dig out and see all the bees. Jason and I both got to taste fresh honey. It was really good. So ends the adventure of the bees in the back yard. The ones that are left should go away in a week or so. We just hope that the bees stay at their new home. Because bees can travel 4 miles and it wasn't quite that. But I don't think they will come back. The End.
