2011 JEMCO Family Reunion

Welcome to the JEMCO family reunion.   It's Coby's grandmother, Mootzie's side of the family.  This year my cute Melanie, Ben and Katie were in charge!  They did a GREAT job!


The moose got the party started!  Seriously, in all my time at Bear Lake, I've never even heard of seeing a moose (unless you are counting the one hanging in Jeanette's house that Corbin used to be so fond of), let alone actually SEEING one!  I think Melanie got this arranged!  She's talented like that!

We started with the Pledge of Allegiance

Then had a little devotional on the significance of the colors of the flag.  Very interesting!

Then it was on to making ROCKETS!

Here's my little cowboy in the midst of things!

Here's Ben making his rocket...what the the??!!

Sam and Ben were teaming up to make FANTASTIC rocket together!

The finished product!

This baby LOVES the swing!  He loves it when we hold him up as high as it will go and ask him, "HOOOOOW OOOOOLD ARRRRRRE YOOOOOOOU?!!!"  Then he shouts, "TWWWWWOOOO!!"

Jadesy has a little crush on Ally Haws...aka the Baby whisperer!!

She is SOOO sweet!  All my kids have just LOVED her!!  I can't wait til she's a little older because she will be the BEST babysitter!  Jaden wakes up most mornings saying, "Allllweee" or "Lidddeeee" (her little sister Lydia)  It's so cute!

Corb and Preston having a ball playing everywhere....***NAME THE MOVIE:  Yeti: Oh, sure. Tough kids, sissy kids, kids who climb on rocks...***

Then the REAL fun began.  There was an obstacle course.  It goes as follows:  First you must try to throw 5 footballs through a blow up ball thingy, then spin around with your forehead on a paddle and for 10 spins, then run and swim around the boat, get out and jump over a few hurdles.  Lance was way funny!  I'll try post a video!  But poor Lance crashed hard like 3 separate times before actually making it to the water!  

And this little monkey was just ACHING for a little Tickle time with me!!

Corb couldn't stay out of the water!!

And this one loved it too...but for now he's enjoying a little wagon ride.

There's me and my girl Whit!

Anna, baby Amelia and me

And finally, the star of the show...Miss MELANIE Bingham and her CUTE little Noah!!

Is this NOT Marianne's smile or what??!!  (Maybe not the tongue...but still) She's definitely a cheeser!!  I LOVE it!!

Speaking of cheesers!!!

Check out those muscles!!!!  LOOK OUT comes Momma Jo!!

I just love this one of Coby's cousin Will and his little Hadley.

I have NO idea...but it was obviously pretty funny!

Then we had a talent show.  I think Ally and Liddie may have one this one.  They did a GREAT routine with flips and everything to the song "Lollipop" by Mika.  It was AMAZING!!  Jaden was in Heaven watching his two favorite girls!!

Here we are watching the lovely Talent Show!

Ben was in charge of a fireworks show....

And what a show it was!!

This was a GREAT family reunion!  A fun time was had by ALL!!

Happy Birthday Baby!

Happy Birthday to the BEST, most AMAZING guy in the whole wide world!!  I love you more than anything!  I wish that I could have celebrated with you this year*** (I was soooo sick)...NO, I'm not pregnant!!***

Here we are a Rodizio's.  It was pretty tasty!  I wish I could have enjoyed it with him.  It was nice however, to just hang out together.  I LOVE spending time with this guy.  He's always so thoughtful and creative.  

And I don't know if there could be a better dad.  These boys are head over heels in love this him!    It always melts my heart and I wonder what I could have possibly done to be sealed to this man for time and all eternity!!

I love that he takes the time let them "help" him.  Even if it is mowing the lawn!

Jack was just starting really bond with him before he passed away.  It was the cutest thing to watch Jack beaming with joy when Coby walked through the door at the end of the day.  Then he'd run to Jadesy does it and it's so sweet.

Quite simply, he's the BEST thing that ever happened to me.  He's the person I trust most.  If he tells me NOT to wear a certain pair of shoes...I don't even question him.  He's right...he's ALWAYS right...and sometimes that can be a bit annoying...but at the same's pretty nice to be able to trust him completely.  I love you baby...more than ANYTHING!  
 Happy Birthday, sorry it wasn't the best day, but just know that you are adored all over this place by some pretty adoring fans!!

Happy Birthday Corbi-Mac-a-Doodle

Happy Birthday my sweet little Corbi-Mac a doodle!!  I can't believe that he's finally 6 years old.  It seems like only a few days ago that he was learning to walk and talk.  Now you talk ALOT!!!   This year for Corb's birthday we celebrated in style at Planet Play.  They have pretty decent pizza and a huge arcade with bumper cars, lazer tag, glow in the dark miniature golf, go karts and even bowling.  It's one of Corb's favorite places to go.  Because he got such a fun gift (A Nintendo DSi...he's seriously been asking for one since Kindergarten started), we decided to have a small birthday party.  He was allowed to invite one friend.  He chose his friend Coleman.

Corb and his little buddy Coleman

Uncle Benny Winny Boo Boo, Lou Bear and Masey 

Here's a fun one of me and my little Ambie.  Missing our Sommy!

Having a little girl time.  Ambie came despite her broken hand.  Lanae, Whit and I were trying to figure out how to eat this yummy cinnamon bread without it actually counting as calories!  :)  I'm not sure any of us made it.

Then the kids found the bumper cars....

As you can see....they ALL LOVED IT!!

Corb was in HEAVEN!!!

I'm not sure who this guy is...???

But this little guy was having the time of his life!  He was feeling like such a big kid!

Glow in the dark miniature golf


Corb was LOVING opening his presents

Aunt Marse gave him some 'dough....I think he thought it was like $200!!

Then Aunt Whit gave him THAT huge bag of candy.....and JADESY was in HEAVEN!!

It was so fun to watch Corb open Jordan's gift!  Once he realized the damage he could do....I'd swear it was Christmas in JULY!!

Later we went to Honey and Poppy's house and blew out the candles on his cake (And this cake was seriously SO GOOD...if I do say so myself)

Happy Birthday you sweet cute beautiful baby boy!!  We love ya!!  (Your birthday tribute will follow soon)
