She really wanted a fish party!!Here she is jumping off the diving board like a cute little fish:)This is all of the kids looking at her frogosphere! It is 2 little frogs and a snail (She named them Swimmee, Swimmer, and Turkey). They eat on Mondays and Thursdays. They only need their water changed 2 times a year.... Great Pet!! Oaklee is 5!!
The root in Oaklee's front tooth was broken when she fell on her face when she was two. It turned a little brown over the years, but a couple of weeks ago it started to turn black... eeewww! I took her to the dentist and we had the option to root canal and cap the tooth she will loose in a year ($$$$$) or have it pulled. So, here is my cute Oaklee without her front tooth!
She had to have a thing of gauze in her mouth for half the day. She got the glasses, the toys, and the balloons from the Dentist's office. I thought she looked sooo cute!
Is it bad that I just cooked up a petite sirloin steak to put into Charlee's lunch? Brian thinks it is pretty spoiled, but the kid is so picky when it comes to eating the lunches I pack and steak is one thing I know she will eat. Some days she just eats her fruit roll up all day. She is usually so hungry when she gets home. I would have loved the lunches I pack for her when I was a kid. We did not get "prepackaged" stuff. We did not have 6 things in our lunch boxes with a juice box and all. I did not know what a juice box was until I got married (jk). We were lucky to get the real mac and cheese, not the store brand... eeewww! My kids on the other hand like to have Velveeta Shells and Cheese. Of course... It is 3 times the cost of mac and cheese when it is on sale. Yeah, way spoiled kids:) Cute beyond measure, but spoiled!!
I have been so neglectful of my blog. I guess I need to get my priorities back in order:)
Well, my life has consisted of mainly PTO stuff 24 hours a day. I am having a ball! I made it through the summer and seem to be busier now that the kids are all in school. Oh, and I am a farmer now... a pig farmer. My kids have turned into these cute little piggies around the house.
Jaxson is having a lot of fun in Preschool. He can count to 8 in spanish very well. His writing is pretty bad, but I am pretty sure that will get better.
Oaklee is excelling in school as well. She makes her teacher laugh all the time. She had a little incident in school where she got locked in the classroom. The teacher counted everyone to go to lunch. After Oaklee was counted, she decided to go into the classroom's restroom to wash her hands and forgot to tell the teacher. She told me, "I came out of the bathroom and everyone was gone. The door was locked, so that was the big problem. I dragged the chair over to the door and reached up real high and unlocked it. Then I started to cry. Then I went out and found the bathroom lady and she found my teacher!" Her poor teacher was crying looking everywhere for Oaklee. It was a happy reunion!!!
Charlee is very happy. She is doing well in school and is having so much fun. She told me that she had a new friend in 2nd grade and they formed a club. I asked her name and Charlee did not know it, so I am not sure how strong the friendship is:)
Brian has been busy on the Grand Jury. He has to go 2 days a week for 4 months and do jury duty. He finds it interesting, but has to complete 5 days of work in 3 days for his job that pays us more that the $13/ day the county does.
Some people come to our site to read my thoughts and feelings about Trevee. She was born on August 27th, 2008. She was 11 inches long weighing 14.6 ounces at 22 weeks. She was beautiful. She was not breathing when she was born. She was such a special spirit and she only needed to come to Earth to get her body. You can click on the Trevee Sue label to read all of the posts about her and see her beautiful face. Journee LaBelle was born April 23rd, 2009. She was born at 19 weeks and weighed 8 ounces and was 8.25 inches long. She was so beautiful as well. She got her body and went to be friends with Trevee in heaven. I am so thankful to have 2 perfect children waiting for me in heaven. I hope as you read about our crazy family you can gain a new respect for the Plan of Salvation as well as your own families. Enjoy hearing more about Trevee and Journee's family!!

Our Love Story!!
Brian Vincent Barry was born in 1977 in Twin Falls, Idaho. I was born 3 years later in Phoenix as Scottee Lyn Page. Brian was back and forth between living in Utah and Arizona while growing up. I grew up in Phoenix. During High School, Brian went to Deer Valley and I went to Paradise Valley. Brian served his mission for our church in 1996. He went to the New England mission. He spent most of his time in New Hampshire and Maine. When he returned, he went to ASU and graduated in business and lived in Mesa. I moved to Mesa and eventually we met at church. It was love at first sight, well, actually first talk. He tried to talk to me in November, but I wanted nothing to do with him. In January, we both were on the activities committee and started to talk. That Sunday, I asked him to the "Girls Choice Dance" via a corney invite. He called that night and said he did not want to wait that long to go out. We went out on Thursday, we were engaged 3 weeks later, and married in within four months in April of 2002. We courted quickly, but when you know, you know. We have been blissfully happy since then. We added Charlee to our clan (which included me, Brian, and my dog, Cow) in May, 2003. Oaklee came shortly after in September of 2004. Jaxson came along just as quickly in February 2006. In August of 2008, we had Trevee Sue Barry join our family. Although she does not get to live here with us on Earth, she will always be in our family and continues to teach us new things everyday. In April of 2009, Journee LaBelle Barry was born prematuresly and did not get to stay with us on Earth. We have done so many things in such a short period of time. We built our dream home. We have served in many callings at church. Currently, Brian is the Ward Mission Leader, and I am a Primary teacher. We love our family and kids so much. We love eachother and think that we are both the one who married up. I guess that is key to happiness. We feel thankful every day.
