started their life together on November 13, 2004. They have two very cute sons, Jacen (born February 8th 2007) and Brycen (born February 19th 2009). At this time the Phillips live in Yucca Valley, California. Scott is teaching Drama and Leadership at the high school. He is also the Girls' Varsity Soccer coach and Yearbook advisor. Stacia is enjoying her time at home with the boys.
So as for me...I turned the BIG 3-1 this January. I do have to say it wasn't half as big of a deal as turning 3o was for me. That one hit me hard for some reason.
Oh and in November I was called as the Primary President for our ward. Basically this means I am over, or rather that I work with, the children 18 months through 11 years old. I have some great counselors who have helped me keep my head on straight.
I am still a consultant for Shelf Reliance. So I sell food storage, shelving and emergency products :) If you are looking to purchase some, contact me because you get the cheapest pricing through a consultant :) We beat Costco prices as well!
Here are some pictures of me during my pregnancy... (you have my friend Natalie to thank for these..she has been asking and asking for me to post more of my prego belly)
Here I am January 5th - 26 weeks pregnant.
On February 6th -
30 weeks pregnant.
On March 10th - 35 weeks pregnant
On March 26th - 37 weeks pregnant (getting ready to head off to the hospital....but those details are for their own post!)
The last two pictures were taken by my boys. I like that 3 of the 4 pictures are in the same shirt...that way you can really see the difference. Not that I dolled up for the pictures but it is about the tummy, not me!!
Scott is still keeping busy at Yucca Valley High School. He teaches one class of Yearbook, three classes of Drama, and a Leadership class. He also coaches the Girls Varsity Soccer team. The Soccer team made it to the second round of CIF playoffs in February. Of course he plans to make it further next year :)
A couple of weeks ago he received a second calling at church as the Visual and Audio Specialist (which means that he sets up all broadcasts and such at our church building), he is also still our Ward Executive Secretary (makes appointments to meet with our Bishop, etc). On top of all of this he manages to be home lots to spend quality time with his children (and wife) :) He is a great dad and husband!!
As you know Scott has a love for Acting. His latest movie, The Adventures of Chris Fable, is now available in Walmart stores :)
his dad. This time includes Jacen's favorite ~ playing sports on the computer with his dad.
Jacen is getting out of his shell a little. He played a part as a shepherd in our primary nativity. This was huge for him...as he wouldn't even stand up a few months earlier to sing, or say his part, in our primary program.
I love that Jacen pretends that he is a mannequin. This time Brycen joined in the fun :)
On February 8th, Jacen turned the BIG 5!! He had his 1st friend Birthday Party. He wanted to have it at the
"close park" so that is what we did. It was really windy but that didn't seem to bother the kids.
Jacen got a special Valentine from a friend Addison....isn't he too young for this?!?!
And a cute picture of my boys :) They are such great friends!
Other things about Jacen:
* He has an amazing memory. He loves to play "Going to Grandma's (and I am going to bring a..)".
* He knows all his letters, and their sounds.
* He loves to play Mexican Trains and be the score keeper.
* He is quite the gymnast.
* Loves all sports.
* He can add and "take away" numbers. Even easy two digits (12 plus 13 is 25. 12 take away 3 is 9)
* He can read a hand clock. (we got one from Scott's Aunt for Christmas and he learned how to read it within a week or two)
* He makes Sea World maps and preforms shows for us daily.
* He puts on Improv Shows.
* He know that in the 8th month he gets to go to Kindergarten and counts down the months regularly.
Brycen is such a fun child. He uses his imagination tons and wants very badly to be just like his older brother.
During my pregnancy I was craving a donut...he
chose one as did I. I figured I would eat mine and half of his. While driving to pick Jacen up from Preschool, Brycen says, "here mom". thinking I am reaching back for some donut...but it was a paper towel he handed me. He loved the donut and his face shows it :)
While at Sea World Brycen and I stood in line for a picture with Elmo. He was on cloud 9...Thanks Elmo for making my child's day!
He is SILLY :)
On February 19th Brycen turned the BIG 3! He got a baseball tee...
....and superhero capes :)
* Brycen has a talent with puzzles (he has been putting together 100 piece puzzles since last Summer).
* He loves sports.
* He can count to 49 (or maybe higher without help).
* He knows all his letters and most of the sounds.
* He is really looking forward to when he can go to preschool :)
