Rebecca - I saw you on the news but it didn''t show very long! If you ever move again - don''t move by the River!

Lauralee Tupa / Wednesday, March 23 2011 12:27 PM

Ohhh so glad things went well!! MJ is in the 90th percentile also!!! Can''t wait to meet your sweet lil girl

Show me the MONEY!


Lauralee Tupa / Wednesday, March 23 2011 12:26 PM

Haakon makes me smile...he is a very smart young man!! You should video tape a conversation with him about this as I am sure later in life he will laugh :)

A few of our moments...


Lauralee Tupa / Wednesday, March 23 2011 12:24 PM

These comments make me giggle :) Your kids are a hoot and so precious!

Synneva has a favorite.


Nikki Massmann / Tuesday, February 1 2011 10:13 AM

Cute! You can really see how much she loves her big sister. Leah too has always looked at Anna like that, even when she was a newborn. But when Luke would come around she would cry! :) (With good reason if you ask me.) hehe! We have to have a play date soon. Luke keeps asking if we can go to Rebekah''s house that lives on a tree farm.

Mary / Tuesday, January 25 2011 08:51 AM

That is so sweet! Although my girls fight, they are really best friends and I''m so delighted Marit has a sister now. They are going to have so much fun together!

cousin cara / Wednesday, September 1 2010 04:18 PM

What a beautiful entry! You should have all these journal entries bound in a book and give your kids a copy when they turn 18. What a treasure kids are but also what a treasure a good mommy is! and that''s what you are. Love you!

Heather Pritchard / Wednesday, August 25 2010 02:07 PM

I just read this post and love it (hate the part about the miscarriage...I''m so sorry..love that you named the baby). Your kids are too dang cute! My niece''s birthday is December 8th. Even though I don''t see her on her birthday, just at Christmas, I am certain to wrap her birthday presents in birthday paper and Christmas presents in Christmas paper. We always do something for her birthday while I''m in town, but never on the same day that we celebrate Christmas. I keep the two days very separate, so maybe you''re baby will have two separate days, too. Can''t wait to see pictures!

Amanda / Wednesday, August 11 2010 04:19 PM

Just read your blog, havent been on here in awhile, I had no idea that you had expierenced a miscarriage...glad that it all ended well (getting pregnant again) and cant wait to set up play dates with you now that Jeff will have more time on his hands when can get to you guys more often!

Betty / Monday, July 26 2010 09:10 PM

congratulations to you and Grant. I am so happy for everyone.. I can see Marit holding the sweet little one right away and singing her favorite songs. I want to hold the baby,too

Mary Neste / Sunday, July 4 2010 11:16 AM

Congratulations and best of luck to the new pregnancy! That is cute what Marit said about Thor. Overprotective lil Mother! :-)

The Massmanns / Thursday, July 1 2010 03:35 PM

Sooooo excited for you guys! That''s hilarious about what Marit said about getting rid of Thor. Anna and her friend always want to trade little brothers with each other so it must be a girl thing. :)

Hannah / Wednesday, June 30 2010 02:30 PM

Congratulations Rebekah - what a very sweet journal entry. Wishing you lots of strength and a very healthy pregnancy! You''ll be amazing with four kids - they are lucky to have you as a mom.

Abbey / Tuesday, June 29 2010 07:56 PM

Wishing you a most boring uneventful pregnancy that results in a happy healthy baby :)

Emma Ranum / Tuesday, June 29 2010 02:00 PM

Becky- That was so precious!! And i know you are going to be an even better mother of four... then the already great mother of three you have been. My Dad used to always tell me, try to take a little time each day... even if it is just for a minute or two, to quite your self and see the beauty, joy and love of the lord all around you!!! I love you!!!

Cuz''n Kim / Tuesday, June 29 2010 01:36 PM

Oh Bex...I wish you gentle moments where you can find them...I am praying for you and your family.

Kelsey / Tuesday, June 29 2010 12:36 PM

Oh Rebekah, what a sweet entry! I am so sorry about the loss of your sweet Arkin. I had no idea. We also found out in January, so I guess our babies would have been almost the exact same age. Of course that would have been fun, but I know the Lords ways are not always our own. I heard something just the other day that has stuck with me. It went something like this.... "The ones that the Lord calls home to Heaven, are the ones this world is not worthy of." I probably got that all wrong, but I love it anyways. ;) We are so thrilled that God has already blessed you with another one. We''ll be praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy all the way through. Thanks for sharing this story with us. We love you!

As a Mother I feel ...


Nikki Massmann / Friday, June 18 2010 03:39 AM

I would have given you a ride somewhere! Or borrowed you my car!

cara / Saturday, May 29 2010 06:27 PM

This is one of the sweetest entries! I love it!

Bridget / Thursday, May 27 2010 02:58 AM

I am so sorry to hear about the keys in the car...stranded and not being able to go to target is so sad! 6 sets is a good idea - then give one to every member of the family just in case. Thor, you are a sweetheart for taking care of mommy...we love nothing more than snuggling with our little ones. Hang in there beck! Love you

Be afraid, be very afraid ...


This past weekend Grant and ...


Sarah / Sunday, May 16 2010 01:47 PM

So glad that you were able to get away. How beautiful and fun it must have been.

Kelsey / Wednesday, May 12 2010 12:28 PM

A trip to Cancun!??? How fun! Don''t worry one bit about leaving the kids! I think it''s good for everyone. Nothing wrong with letting them know Daddy is number 1 in your life. ;) Glad you got to get away for a week. Do you have pictures??

Those little boys who say ...


Kelsey / Wednesday, May 12 2010 12:22 PM

Haha! Oh, I know the feeling! I''m guessing every little boy goes through this exploration of "bathroom words" at some point! It''s just worse when there''s two of them feeding off each other and laughing hysterically at what they come up with. Oh dear.....I wonder what it''s like to have girls? Someone please tell me it''s horrible! haha

batty / Friday, April 2 2010 10:52 PM

Happy Easter!

Life on the Island part 2...


Grandma Betty / Friday, April 2 2010 10:55 PM

Glad you are dying out!

Abbey / Friday, March 26 2010 12:38 PM

Your "days on the island" remind me of "Survivor" ... are you ready to vote people off ;)

Life on The Island... Water ...


Cousin Cara / Wednesday, March 24 2010 01:37 AM

The girls and I laughed at Marit''s nose issue. Kind of funny to look back on it. Good for Marit for knowing what a wrench is! Lets see, can you order boats online? You could have it delivered to Grant''s office and he will have to bring it home, as there should be no place for a boat at the hospital...hee hee.

Hannah / Tuesday, March 23 2010 11:50 AM

You are brave Rebekah! I bet the kids will remember these flood times fondly when they are older :)

Haakon and Marit have had ...


CD / Friday, March 19 2010 09:07 PM

too funny. yay Marit for trying! And for putting those nosy strangers in there place. :)

Mary Neste / Sunday, March 14 2010 12:12 PM

Your stories are so interesting! Of course make the day!

Sarah Plyler / Saturday, March 13 2010 03:05 PM

I am so excited Marit is taking ballet class. I bet she looks adorable in a tutu! Start saving for Pointe shoes!

Mary / Wednesday, March 10 2010 10:33 PM

I agree with Kara - a book is definitely in order! I LOVE reading about the Seeger family adventures. :) xoxo

Kara / Wednesday, March 10 2010 02:36 PM

Rebekah, You need to write a book. I love to read your journal entries!

It was one week ago ...


Tanya / Monday, March 1 2010 02:03 AM

I have thought about going there a number of times, but have always gone somewhere different. The Ramkota is a nice hotel with a nice little kiddie pool and water slides for the older kids.

Bridget / Tuesday, February 23 2010 02:32 PM

I think it''s perfectly fine to be high matianece so don''t worry about it. Now I know the next time I venture to Bismarck I will go to the Heritage Center and NOT stay at the Best Western! :-)

This morning everyone got a ...

Lorri / Friday, January 15 2010 12:44 PM

Please find a site. The boys and I miss you guys so much and we love to hear how the children are growing and changing. All Andrew wants next year for Christmas is a trip to see you. Love always....Lorri and the Boys

Betty Pikop / Sunday, January 10 2010 05:51 PM

I have so enjoyed this window into your world, Rebekah! Please keep me on your email list for future updates! You could make a group mass mail! Take care...love, Betty

Mary Neste / Sunday, January 10 2010 11:32 AM

I have really enjoyed this site and you''r sisters! Let me know what you do! Blessings to your family!

Kim / Sunday, January 10 2010 02:47 AM

Man, I will so miss these. I love reading your entries. I am so happy that you guys made it to the other side and are getting on with your new life. I think Marit is sounding very "gifted", so make sure they know this when she starts school. Her mind moves faster than she can. Very happy all is well. Don''t forget to move me if you start a new blog!!! Love, Kim

Bridget / Thursday, January 7 2010 08:53 PM

I agree with cara...can you design us a site? I don''t like any of the others out there either. I love your post too.

Cara / Thursday, January 7 2010 05:41 PM

Ok, Rebekah, you will just have to build a baby website. Make it big enough to house all your cousins, sisters and best friends baby''s stuff and then we''ll all kick in some money for a server. Of course, you will have to pick up advertising to support it too. Great post by the way. I love it! C-you tomorrow.

Can''t believe that our Haakon ...


Mary Neste / Sunday, December 20 2009 12:23 PM

I really enjoy r eading your journal! It brings back memories for me! Merry Christmas!

Lauralee / Friday, December 18 2009 04:39 AM

Sooo sweet..a lil tidbit to share. I have been BEGGING for a REAL tree. So I was reading this post out loud to Jay Paul and I said, "Oh nice a REAL tree." He goes, "Oh sappy :)" haha hope you get a good laugh and I''m super jealous (and happy for you) for your tree. Grant so sweet you pray with Haakon. You 2 are raising wonderful children!!! WE love you

We are so thrilled to ...


Emma / Wednesday, December 16 2009 07:43 PM

Happy Birthday to my favorite 5 year old cousin!!! Hope your day is so much fun... and you have the best year ever! love you bunches and bunches! Love lots, Emma

In the car conversation this morning -


cara / Wednesday, December 16 2009 04:09 PM

That is so cute! I love how kids think and they notice everything! I love it!

Bridget / Wednesday, December 2 2009 04:56 PM

um...that is so funny. I love that if you are a girl you need a bow...scarlett feels the same way.

Bridget / Wednesday, December 2 2009 04:56 PM

um...that is so funny. I love that if you are a girl you need a bow...scarlett feels the same way.

Thor has been banished. ...


Nikki Massmann / Wednesday, November 11 2009 04:52 PM

Letting my children cry themselves to sleep when they woke up at night (after they were old enough of course) was the best thing I have ever done for all 3 of them. They will thank me their whole lives for teaching them how to sleep soundly and be able to soothe themselves a bit. GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!

Abbey / Wednesday, November 11 2009 01:47 PM

You are doing great! and Thor is doing great too! I"m sure both (he and you) are benefiting from the sleep. Isn''t it funny how we make excuses for our babes (they are sick, hungry, teething, etc) when all they really need is tough love. Good for you guys!

Cousin Cara / Tuesday, November 10 2009 03:28 PM

Good for you! And YAY for Thor!



Tanya / Monday, November 16 2009 05:02 AM

Oh Bekah. You make me cry from laughter and just feeling your pain! You poor thing. I agree...no more conferences! Don''t they have online courses? ha ha I think that YOU should get a break for the weekend! :)

Mary Neste / Sunday, November 8 2009 11:45 AM

You sure have some interesting stories!! Hang in there - kids grow up too fast!!

Bridget / Friday, November 6 2009 03:23 AM

Um...you tell Grant if he doesn''t take you to Cancun he is in BIG TROUBLE and the kids need to stay at home with Nana & Papa...you need a break!

Mary & the girls / Thursday, November 5 2009 03:11 PM

Oh Rebekah! I love you!!! You make me smile - we''re praying today is a better and much less eventful day for you all.

Cuz''n Kimmy / Thursday, November 5 2009 03:05 PM

Emma Ranum / Thursday, October 29 2009 04:21 PM

COUSIN SLEEPOVER!!! ...yay! gotta live on the tradition! and becky i can come over when ever you want to play with the kids.. it is so much fun! LOVE EMMA! p.s so i tagged along on one of your dates! :)

Bridget / Friday, October 23 2009 01:28 AM

How fun that the cousins got to play with Aquiliana! Sounds like a love evening at the Pretty in Pink Celebration and I am sure Grant did a great job speaking and your PP template was beautiful. I think you and Grant totally deserved your two date nights. Love you guys

Wow, I finally feel like ...


Auntie Bridget / Thursday, October 22 2009 01:23 AM

Hang in there Becky! Just think, one day they will all be off to college and you will have so much free time on your hands you won''t know what to do with it. I hope everyone is feeling better at your house. I second Cara''s idea of getting Emergen-C - I love that stuff! Love you guys, sleep tight.

Jackie / Tuesday, October 20 2009 10:51 PM

Awe, I feel like I can see you doing all of those tasks and also feel your tiredness!!! Our kids are growing so quickly and even though each day is a struggle we are blessed to have them eachday whether it''s good or bad. I''m so glad that the kids are doing great. It looks like ND is great for the kids. I hope Thor is better and give him lots of love, that''s the best medicine! Miss you guys a ton!! Smile****

cousin cara / Tuesday, October 20 2009 04:45 PM

So Cute! Love the updates! Get some of that Emergen-C packets available at grocery stores and walmart and put some in water. Tastes like juice and kids love it. Hopefully Marit won''t get it. You take care of yourself too! Love you! Cara

Nikki Massmann / Thursday, October 1 2009 05:28 PM

OHHHH I love the story about getting married! A boy in Anna''s preschool class wanted to marry her too. He had asked his mother if he could marry his sister, and the mother also had to explain that you do not marry family members, you marry friends. After that it was settled in his mind, he was marrying Anna!

jacqueline Bonillas / Thursday, September 3 2009 07:46 PM

What a great story!! I can''t help but chuckle at Marit saying she was not going to marry Haakon. I love hearing about your adventures. I just wish we could be part of some of those treasured memories. I couldn''t agree more that the year has flown by. I wish I could sometimes make it go slow so I could savour each precious moment. Give the kids a big hug & kiss. Tell them we miss them.

Today was Haakon''s first day ...


Auntie Bridget / Thursday, August 27 2009 01:16 PM

Haakon, I am so proud of you for making it through your first day of pre-school! You are going to learn so many fun things. Make sure you are nice to that little girl! Love you

Thor was in his glory; ...


Abbey / Wednesday, August 5 2009 01:03 PM

Poor Thor! (I was going to say "little" in the middle, but realized that wouldn''t have fit) Haakon is just so cute with a personality all his own.
