The Rex kids... It's not everyday you get a shot of ALL EIGHT of them!
Glenn and his mom! This is where he got his good looks!!
Koa and Papa!

Glenns parents left this morning to the MTC in Salt Lake City where they will learn the "proper missionary conduct" for 5 days and on Saturday they are off the Hawaii for 2 years! We are so very excited for them! What a great experience that will be for them! It's about time they do something for themselves (well... they will be doing service so it's not really doing something for themselves...). We are going to miss them terribly but we are so happy for them and excited to visit them next year! A little about Glenns parents... They are 2 of the best people I have EVER met. They are so giving and do EVERYTHING for their kids and grandkids and us in-laws and I we greatly appreciate everything they have done for us (like letting us stay in their house while they are gone so we can save up for a house of our own)! They are the type of people who give their time, money, and whatever else to help their kids and extended family. Deena is just the sweetest person ever and Kenny is so funny and so talented! I feel so lucky to have such great in-laws! Thanks for raising Glenn to be such a great and loving person! Anyways... I'll stop with the cheesiness... we had a "farewell" dinner at BJs Friday night and it turned out SO great!
We'll miss you! Let the moving begin...

It's been a while...

The past couple of weeks have been CRAZY! We have been trying to pack and go through all of our stuff so that we can start moving next week! It's so overwhelming! The kids and I also were sick for a few days and I always fear being "out of comission." Luckily Glenn and my mom helped me out for a couple of days so I could rest and get better faster! Last night "aunt beca" came over and we took a little walk down to Yogurtland. It had been a while and Kaile LOVES it so it was time for her to get her treat for being such a good girl! She insisted on wearing her sun glasses even though it was 7:00pm and totally dark.
It is less than a week now before Glenns parents leave and I think it is starting to sink in a little more and it's CRAZY to think they are going to be gone for 2 years! I cannot believe it but we are so happy for them! They are going to be staying in an apartment right on the beach... literally their back door opens up to the sand! Sound like a VAYKAY to me! It's so exciting but we are going to miss them so so much! The next few weeks are definately going to be hectic trying to get situated over there... wish us luck!

I just adore my husband! He is such a great person and a hard worker! He works so hard and is so motivated to provide for his family and give us a good life... and I really do appreciate it! He works full time (11 hour shifts all week this week) and he goes to school full time! I think we are all a little sleep deprived these days and Glenn can fall asleep anywhere! I can't sleep sitting up... it just won't happen and I thought it was so cute when he crashed on the couch, mouth open and all!

also, Glenns parents got their mission call today! They are going to Honolulu, Hawaii and leave in 2 weeks to serve a 23 month mission! We are moving into their house while they are gone and we are going to miss them terribly... but we are excited to have a good excuse to go to hawaii! SO EXCITING!!

A teething baby and a sick toddler = a CRAZY day!

Even though Koa isn't my first baby I feel like I never really had to deal with a "baby" teething since Kaile didn't get any teeth until after she turned 1! She was easy because she would just reach for the teething tablets when her gums were hurting... but poor little Koa just SCREAMS! Since he isn't much of a crier these days I immediately bust out the teething tablets when the tantrum begins and they quickly ease his pain! Today I let him have a "teething biscuit" and he LOVED it! He chomped away at it until I got nervous because he would bite off HUGE chunks! He was in heaven for the 5 minutes the biscuit lasted! He is so cute...
Last night as I was getting Kaile ready for bed her nose started running and it hasn't stopped since! It is so gross! All night she whined in her sleep because she couldn't breathe through her nose. She even woke up at 6:30 this morning not feeling well... it is VERY unusual for Kaile to be up that early! She usually sleeps until I eventually have to get her up so I can get out of the house and do what I need to do. She was such a good girl today even though she was sick. She was still happy and sweet but she was a lot more relaxed than usual! I feel so lucky to have kids who are happy even when they don't feel so well!
(notice Kailes "shiny" face... um, thats snot that she smeared across her face! SO DISGUSTING!)
