Owens Family

Our Family
                                                 Grandma and Grandpa Owens and Jen

For Jenny's baptism we decided to go up to Utah and do the baptism in Monroe. Grandpa and Grandma Owens are missionaries in the Spanish Branch and it fell during fall break so we got to go and enjoy family and SNOW even. It was a very special day and besides Zane trying to climb into the font "TO SWIM" with Jenny.. it was wonderful.

Jenny's Eight!

Our Jenny turned eight this year.. and this picture makes me laugh cause she is our silly, sweet little goof ball. Jenny is such a joy to have in our family. She is our peacemaker for sure. Shes eagar to please and always willing to trade to keep everyone happy. She was excited to get baptized and all about legos this year for her birthday. She was suppose to get a birthday party this year but we decided to just have a low-key cousin sleepover roller-skate party :) She was so excited about having her cousins come and it was so nice and easy for me too.

Legos Presents



                                           Braxton and Josh..who quickly volunteer for Zane duty

                                                            Bailey (see the look of exhaustion )

                                                           Zane only lasted 10 minutes

                                                                 THE CHAMPIONS

I can't belive how HARD roller skating seemed to be for the kids.. I don't remember it EVER being that hard ONLY sooooo FUN. Megan was the only one out of the kids that could go without the walkers.. Jenny wouldn't quit and these two girls stayed the out there the WHOLE hour or so we were there. Everyone else pooped out on us. It was a fun experience and I think I'm going to make them go AGAIN.

School Pictures 2012

The big kids

The girls

Onery Josh.. refused to SMILE

Jenny running away from Josh after trying to get him to smile by "tickling" him
The kids have been in school 2 months now.. I am finally getting to blog about it. Josh started 7th grade and decided he is a "TEENAGER" and teenagers have attidudes. We assure him that HAPPY teenagers lives are ALOT better then GRUMPY ones. Hes still working on beliving us. He is liking changing classes and is going well in school, He does have alot of homework though. Josh is now 5'9" and size 11 mens shoes. He is going to be tall for sure.
Bailey started 5th grade.. and was happy to have one of her best friends in her class with her again this year. I was so happy to find that out. She has a hard time with her teacher this year because she raises her voice alot at the kids and Bailey is scared to death of getting yelled at. Unfortunatly thats life and sometimes that happens.. She is getting all A's and is VERY CONCERNED about getting good grades. She is my worrier. I hope she relaxes some but still keeps those grades HIGH too :)
Jenny started 3rd grade and likes her teacher and her class. She is happy and loves school. She is still in speech and I hardly can tell anymore. She gives me hope for Zane. :)
HERE's  To the year 2012

Grandpa was SO HAPPY because he was so worried about being cold.. grandma even stayed up the night before they left till the wee hours to sew him long johns... purple ones :) The boys had fun and CLOWNED around ALOT! Hopefully I can get the boys to get on here and record something too.
