YES, We Really Do Have Eight!

I love babies. When my babies hit their first birthday, I long once again for that tiny helpless little person that smells like baby powder and doesn't squirm away when you're staring at his beautiful little face. Now don't get me wrong. I love the other stages too. I laugh out loud when I hear the jibber jabber of his first words (Jackson). I giggle when I see one dance hysterically when she hears a Justin Bieber song (Bekkah). I beam with pride when she puts gospel principals into action as she prepares for her upcomming baptism (Emily). I am amazed over and over as he accepts and conquers challenges far beyond his years (Ammon). I burst with pride as I watch his determination and drive in all that he sets his mind to (Zane). I melt when I see the empathy, and concern she has for others (Mckenzie). I have to catch my breath when I see him snuggle with his baby brother (Zachary). I am amazed as I read his letters from his mission (Tres). I guess I just love it all. And this is why I have, despite my horrible pregnancies, we have eight beautiful, talented, amazing, wonderful children!

Emily Anne Huston-by Mckenzie

OK well this is the second of my tribute to my family members. It's taken a little longer for the second because I've had to do a little more investigating for Emily. Well Emily is super cute!! She started pre-school and absolutely loves it!!! I mean who doesn't love pre-school? You get snacks, play time, and the all important nap!! I wish I got even one of those things! (Unless you count the 4 minutes I have in between classes!) She only has half days but she sure wishes it was full day!!!
Emily loves to play dress up. So you can expect her to come out four or five times a day with a new mis-matched outfit. Some are unbelievably ugly just because she didn't match something right. She might be trying to start a new trend or something but it's not working!! I love her anyway.
During the summer she's constantly out side without sun screen! This summer my mom tried to keep it on her but didn't so well and she ended up with a really bad sun burn! But she LOVES to play out side in our circle with her friends. They get out a little pool we have and set it up in the front yard. It's really funny because sometimes I come home from some where and there's like 8 kids in our front yard. We might as well be the neighborhood hang out! Even in the winter they play in the backyard! On a normal day there's 5-6 kids running around in the front yard and/or backyard. I don't know half of them!
Emily has imaginary friends. She loves to play with them! They have sleepovers, tea party's, play dates etc. The weird part is just when you want one to be around, their all sick! But if they're not sick, they've moved to China, CHINA! This 4-year-old has a very active imaginary.
Now as I'm typing this Emily is playing ballerina. She spins around with her arms in the air. It's really funny when Bekkah starts doing it too. She just sort of puts her arms in the air and spins in circles! It's pretty funny.
I hope by now you realize I love my little sister and love to play with her! She may be annoying and in the way at times but most of the time I couldn't love her more!
