4th of July and some Jonas Brothers

This was seriously one of the best 4th of July's ever!!!
Starting out at the Murray Parade. Here is the Color Guard

Optimums Prime.. As Gannon say's..
Murray fireman with the kids and Camden and HolliEl with Gannon.. Gannon loves suckers!
Then we were off to Staduim of Fire.. So good and we had amazing seats!
ME.. I know. Finally a picture on my blog of me. YUCK
Morgan and Kylah waiting patiently.. We were on the grass not far from the stage..
OK.. Me, Barbra (sister) Clay (brother inlaw) Sage, Emer, Elizabeth, Kylah, Samantha, Morgan, Jennifer and Jarren. El took the picture. O MY HECK.... JONAS BROTHERS!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAHHHHHHH
can you tell they were excited?
Samantha wasn't all to fond of the Jonas Brothers.. But at least she smiled a couple of times. And I did catch her singing..
Emer with Clay.. How awesome is that! It was all of my girls first concert! It was seriously amazing, but the best part was watching my kids!!! They loved it and were so much fun!
My Amazing Cousin Justin!!! He is the one who got the tickets for us.. Thank you Justin for all you have done for our Country!!! Your amazing!

Also, I would just like to give a shout out to my family!!! All who have served in the Military.. Grandpa Roy(Air Force & Civil Air Patrol), Grandpa Barr (Marine Air Core) (AKA Poppa), Justin (Army) & Bryan (Marine)! Thank you all for protecting us throughout the many, many years. And for all of those who came before you! Also, to Francis Hopkinson who is like my great, 5 times over uncle, for signing the Declaration of Independence!!!!! I wish I could have been there with you!

Okay, so I have been trying for like 2 hours to upload a video and it isn't working.. When I get it loaded I will post it.. So, sorry NO Jonas Brothers on video, BUT here are some pictures....

Hi, I'm Helam... Can I flirt with you???

Here he is.. Mr, America.. Eating a sucker and falling asleep!!! TO FUNNY
This boy is a FLIRT! I think he gets it from his daddy... He gives the cutest little eye brow wag I have ever seen on a young person..
Yesterday marked Helams 6th month of life. And I guess I could say it has been one heck of a ride for this kid. He has sisters who dote on him constantly, and are so mothering to him. I don't know what I am going to do when they all go back to school.

During this last month, Helam has been able to start to sit up (no one holding him up) by himself. He decided to take on this milestone while we were camping. I couldn't believe it! He is growing up so much...

He loves to eat. He has been trying to get my food for months, so I finally have broken down and started to feed him baby food. He loves it all. He eats entire jars of it and then wants more. I have had to restrict him, because he gets major tummy aches, because he eats so fast. Also this month, he has fallen in LOVE with Popsicles. They must feel really good to his upper teeth, because he has two coming in. Seriously, this boy is growing to fast!

He loves his brothers and sisters so much. He is always wanting to know what they are doing. Hence this picture. I was trying to get a shot of all three of them, and all he wanted to do was look at Korban and Emer. What a character!

I am so proud to be a mother and so greatful that I have these kids! I am also so glad that El and I received the inspiration to have Helam. Even though I was sure he was going to be a girl and I was going to name "her" Ester.
I can't wait to see how much Helam grows this next month. He changes everyday and I thank God that he is allowing me to be with him so I can see these changes.
