Welcome to iMore! It could be a few things:

1. As @Peligro911 stated, you probably have automatic downloads enabled in Settings > iTunes & App Store. Go there and then toggle OFF Apps under the Automatic Downloads header.
2. Someone is reinstalling them
3. Someone is restoring the phone from an iTunes or iCloud backup that's putting the apps back on the device.
