Look at what the New Year brought!

 On January 2, at 1:20 am, our little Preston came into the world!  He was 7 lbs, 2 oz, and 20 inches smallest baby by over a pound!  Now, he's a little more than a week old and we are just enjoying having him in our family!

                                                   With PJ and I right after he was born!

 With his Grandma and his brothers!  Jack and Ethan couldn't come to the hospital because it's RSV season, and my parents were watching them for us, so Tuesday was the first time they met Preston!

                                               My parents with their newest grandson!

                         Preston is lucky to have 2 great big brothers who love him very much!

                                                            One and a half days old!

Our summer!

Ok, I am once again playing catch up!  The first of my friends have turned 30 and last week we went to dinner to celebrate

Ethan started school again!  It is his second year at the Apple Tree Schoolhouse!  Here he is on the first day with his awesome Iron Man backpack!

Jack wanted a back pack too, so he used Ethan's lunch box.

The end of summer BBQ at Breck and Preston's house!

Ethan's 4 1/2 pictures. He looks so old.

Jack age 2!  He is so cute!

Jack's 2nd Birthday Party!

Over the 4th of July, we went to Hawaii!

Our awesome sand castle!

The boys in their awesome Hawaiian outfits!

What we've been up to...

Ethan played soccer for Farmington City and loved it! He already loves to run and kick balls around, so he took to this very well! He's going to be our soccer star!

Along with Sarah, Aiden, and Noah, we took a trip to Moab to hike to the Delicate Arch and Arches National Park. The hike is about three miles long and Ethan did the whole thing and loved it! Looks like I will need to schedule a few more hikes for us to do this summer!

PJ's sister, Sara, got married in the Bahamas! Although we were not lucky enough to go there for the ceremony, we did get to go to her reception in Idaho! She looked beautiful and we had so much fun seeing the family!

Of course, we had to take a trip to the zoo! The boys really loved the giraffes the best, but they also liked the elephants, monkey, and the pretend dinosaurs (especially the one that spit out water).

Here's a family picture from Easter brunch at Oakridge! Normally at least one of us is covered in food, so I wanted to show an updated picture where we were all dressed nice, and, at least for this particular moment, still clean!

Our exciting news that was worth blogging for!

I have become horrible at blogging, and I really have no good excuses, so I won't even try. However, I felt that our exciting news warranted me taking a second to blog. We are pregnant with our third child! This baby is due on January 8th of next year and we could not be more excited! Here is the first image of our little one from my doctor's appointment. We're about half way to finding out if it's a boy or a girl and I am really cool with whatever! We're just so happy that we get to have our family grow a little more!

Catching up!

It's been awhile since I have posted, so I thought I'd put a few pictures up from the holidays! These are my boys all bundled up ready to go look at the Christmas lights at Temple Square!

Our family in front of the Temple!

Kevin and Michelle!

My parents, Ian, and Ethan at the annual Oakridge Christmas party!

With my cousin Lara, she lives in California, so it's always fun when I get a chance to see her!

All four boys matched, but this was the best picture we could get of them together, mostly due to Jack's unwillingness to stay still!

Seeing Santa for the first time this holiday season!

PJ's family came down from Idaho to visit!

Christmas Eve at my parents! This was the second for Jack, and third for Ethan visit from Santa (Ethan's school had Santa come)!

Collin was excited about Santa too!

The boys opening presents on Christmas morning! Jack slept through half of it, but had fun once he finally woke up!

For New Years Eve we went up to Park City with some of PJ's friends! We had a blast and are looking forward to a great 2011!

Taking some toys to donate to Primary Children's Hospital to donate! I know Ethan looks grumpy about it, but he was just mad about getting his picture taken. He was actually very excited and has already made a new pile of toys to take up there. Hopefully, these boys have at least gotten an understanding of the joy of giving and service during the Christmas season, in spite of how spoiled they got on Christmas morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas season as well!

Ethan and Jack carving pumpkins!

Jack really wanted to help!

The finished product!

Ethan was very proud of his pumpkin!

Our family were all characters from Super Mario brothers.

Getting ready to go trick-or-treating!

More proof that my parents and grandma are awesome!

My Grandma and mom and dad were Utah State's Alumni of the Year for 2010! Two weeks ago we spent the weekend up in Logan celebrating them during USU's Homecoming! We went up Friday night to a dinner at Hamiltons (a fancy restaurant up in Logan). Then we all stayed at the University Inn, so that we could get to a breakfast honoring the award recipients early the next morning! Then buses took my parents and us down to the parade, so that we could watch them in the Homecoming parade!

This is us waiting along the parade route!

Ethan and Aiden got lots of candy during the parade!

My parents and grandma in the parade!

After the parade, we had the game! It was very rainy, but it was okay because we got to be up in a suite! My parents went out on the field during half time and it was fun to cheer for them down on the field! USU lost big time, which was kind of sad, but it was still a fun weekend and we are still Aggies through and through!
