Christmas Day

Christmas was awesome considering Christmas Eve was a nightmare! We stayed up wrapping presents or shall I say Chad wrapped all the presents,LOL till midnight. Then around that same time Peyton woke up screaming which she has never done since she was a newborn and had a blowout. I changed her put her back in bed and just prayed she would go back to sleep which SHE DID:) It wasn't even an hour later that Luke woke up crying and wouldn't go back to bed so I put him in our bed. The only problem with that is that Luke isn't the type of kid who likes to sleep with mommy and daddy. So he was up all night which meant I was up all night. Peyton and Lexi woke up around 6:30 I think so then Luke of course who had finally fallen asleep sometime around 5 I think woke up as well and we all went down to open presents. The kids had a blast and since they are a little older now it was really fun to see the difference. Around 10 we started to get ready to head over to the Chateau on the Lake Resort for a lovely and yummy brunch. Later that night we had some friends over for Christmas dinner and to play games. It was a wonderful Christmas and the only thing missing was getting to spend it with my family in AZ.

Christmas Pics and a little catching up

I've been so bad lately at updating this blog and so much has happened. Peyton turned 9 months on December 17th. It's crazy how time just flies by. She's been crawling for awhile now and has been eating baby food since about 7 months. She got weighed last week and was 16lbs 14oz. Lexi is enjoying preschool and just saw the Nutcracker for the first time last night. Luke is just busy being a playful little boy oh and he is completely potty trained! Chad is doing great and loving his job and serving as 1st counslor in the Elder's Quorum Presidency. Life is good:)

Photo Shoot

On May 7th 2010 I took the kids to get their pictures taken with Peyton. The pics turned out so good and the kids were actually really good when getting their pictures done. The light was hurting Lexi's eyes that's why her eyes look a little red and watery. The only thing I wish was that the pictures of all 3 of them together turned out better. It seems like one of the 3 were always looking a different direction or doing something else so the picture of all 3 that I posted was the one that turned out the best. Anyways, I have more pics to purchase but these are the ones I got so far. Enjoy :)

Memorial Day

We didn't do much for Memorial Day because as always Chad has to work and with the baby being so young still I didn't want to have her out in the hot sun. I wanted to get out of the house though so we decided to take a ride to Chad's work and have lunch. After having lunch at the hotel I took the kids to Target and I bought Toy Story 2 for them. I bought Toy Story 1 about a month ago and needed to buy the second one so they could know what was going on when we go see the 3rd coming out soon. They are watching it loving it as i'm writing this. All in all it was a pretty laid back but still fun day.

My Loves

Luke's 2nd Birthday

Luke turned 2 April 7th so we celebrated with going to the Dr. for his 2 year checkup. Then we went to Lamberts "YUM" for dinner and headed home for cake and presents. He was so excited. He was smiling so big while we sang Happy Birthday to him it was so adorable. We are so happy to have Luke. He is the sweetest boy and brings so much joy to our family. Happy Birthday to my sweet boy.

We had a wonderful Easter. We started the morning out by the kids spotting their Easter baskets on the kitchen table going crazy with excitement. We then had an Easter egg hunt which they also loved. After the Easter Egg Hund we went to my husband's work Chateau on the Lake for a fabulous brunch. The best part of Easter was having my mom here to spend it with us. She leaves in a couple of days and we are going to miss her dearly.
