Cousins and Swimming

A big event came to the Hendriksen family last week... the first GIRL in the family was born after 25 years!! Vannessa and Blake had their first baby. Little Anniston came after 13 grandsons in a row!!!

TJ and Curtiss took these boys to their first BYU Basketball game- they loved it!

Cade and Benson at 7 weeks old in their matching onesies from Mamita. Best buddies already and holding hands!

Last week right before we walked out the door to church Shad colored all over his church clothes and shoes with pen!!! Then today he ate a bowl of raspberries and got them all over his white church shirt. This kid is crazy!!

Benson's first day of church- Feb. 7, 2016. All 4 boys have worn this same onesie. 

Linda and Joe getting a good dose of birth control. This was last weekend when we had a Non-Super Bowl Whole30 party ;) It was actually really fun! All of us in TJ's side of the family who weren't watching the Super Bowl got together and made some really good Whole30 approved food so TJ and I could feast with everyone! It was a lot of fun to just hang out. Vannessa was also in labor so we got to face time her and jump at every text message that came through. 

We started up swimming lessons again. It's always so crazy to walk in from the snowy outside and jump in the water but they keep it very heated and the boys love it. Both boys are SO close to swimming on their own! Levi went down the giant slide for the first time- he was so excited. Shaddie has gone this round too and he loves it- not one tear! It was his first time wearing goggles too. ;) He feels very grown up, just like the older boys. So funny on what a huge influence they are on him. 

We're so lucky to have such great neighbors! Kierra is one of my 11 year old primary kids and comes over frequently just to hold Benson. She absolutely loves it and is a HUGE help. Often she comes when I need to get dinner on or clean up the kitchen and she just takes over. She'll completely feed him, burp him and get him to sleep. She's awesome! I love it!!
Penny and Aiden came over to our house so Jesse and Kelby could take the twins to their 2 week check ups. I came in to see Penny sitting like this with her feet in the vibrating thing, watching a show. I watched them during piano- 6 kids under 5 years old while I was teaching. Talk about craziness!! But we survived! 

This is what happens when you wake up at 5 am because your brothers wake you up and you don't get a good nap :) You crash at 5 pm.
