My one and only boy is 11.  He is the sweetest guy.  He is so cute with his sisters and is a great babysitter!  He loves things clean and organized, we call him our little "Monk".  He does EVERY thing I ask him to do without complaining, he never tells me no, like NEVER EVER.  (Ok, except for eating his veggies, and even then he swallows them like he's taking a pill, whole and with water!)  He hates jeans and long pants- he wears shorts year round just like his dad.  He is a picky eater because of textures.  He loves Legos more than anything and wants to work for Lego when he's grown up. He says his prayers every night and is such a great example to our whole family.  Love you Zack!

We need to come up with traditions that don't make me fat!  ;) 

Zoey adores Chelsea

It looks like there's a spider on Chelsea's shoulder! 

I'm amazed we have actual candles!  We usually use things like sparklers or matches...

Bath time is always our favorite time!

Going to the mountains just 10 days after Chelsea was born.  It was fun to get out.  My poor kids had suffered the summertime with me completely sick and bed ridden.  Not much fun.

My precious baby girl.  I am so blessed
Having fun in the river

Zack being protective of Zoey

I look at these beautiful people and cannot believe they are mine.


July 2012

What a BIG month! Savannah goes to EFY, Savannah and Syd go to YW camp, and CHELSEA GRACE is born! :)

July 4th- went to a neighborhood show, it was great..I think, everything is a blur from March to July 25th!  

Love my Zoey
 just some fun pictures of the kids
Taking Savannah to EFY, it was exciting.  
Savannah and Marissa- cute girls
Oh my gosh I am so swollen and look so sick.  Babies are worth it though!
Having an impromptu photo shoot on BYU campus (I stayed in the car)
We took Savannah and Zoey to a ghost town, can't remember what it was called but it was only an hour away. 


Zoey getting into some big "stickers"
My sweet sweet Chelsea Grace is finally here! 7/25/12  11:42 pm 8 lbs 10 oz  19 1/2 inches
  The story of her birth is a very long one and I don't want to put all the details on here, but let's just say it was scary and my epidural never happened, but the Dr thought it did, and I got lots of stitches. Not fun. The nurse said I was one of the bravest ladies she has seen. I have never thought of myself that way, it was a nice compliment. I'm just glad I didn't scream! I cried, but I didn't scream :)
She needed some oxygen for a while after she was born.  But I got to hold her a few hours after she was born.   

I can't figure out blogger and how to align pictures and write without doing it on the picture caption, I need a tutorial.  

So Chelsea, wow, I felt like a million bucks after she was born!  I was on magnesium and the nurses said I was the happiest person they have seen on that!  Well, it just shows how AWFUL I felt for 9 months prior.  Definitely a memorable experience.  I love babies, I love kissing them, taking care of them, hanging out with them in the middle of the night when the house is quiet, taking naps with them, smelling their indescribable baby smell (someone needs to bottle that), I love love love everything about them.  BUT I do not think I will go through pregnancy again, this one almost killed me.  :)

Zoey has been the sweetest with Chelsea, we thought she would be jealous, but she LOVES her and kisses her, and has been totally protective.  They have a special bond, I can see it already. 

Chelsea was born when the girls were at YW camp, all they saw was a picture.  They met Chelsea when I came home from the hospital.  I love having teenagers and babies, they balance each other out.  :)  My teenagers have been fun, let's hope it stays that way!
