Lydia's 2nd Birthday!





Our sweet little Liddie had her second birthday! It was so much fun to eat cake and ice-cream
and spend time with family and friends.
Our "little monkey" had a great time eating her "10 little monkey's jumpin' on the bed" cake!!
She especially enjoyed playing with her cousins and Aunts and Uncles!

Dinosaur Museum at Thankgiving Pointe

The girls and I had a fun time at the Dinosaur Museum with our good friend Marshelle Thompson. The girls especially enjoyed running all around. These girls are non-stop!

Merry Christmas

This is a bit late but better late than never. I am still in the experiment stage of blogging so here goes another post.

Our Christmas this year was wonderful. We had a lot of fun and a couple of "firsts" with this Christmas. We had our first Christmas in our new home. And our newest little addition, Eliza Jo, was born on Dec. 15th. How fun that was to have a new baby in the home during this wonderful time of year.

I feel so blessed. I am so thankful for the birth and life our our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am thankful for his atoning sacrifice for me. Words cannot express my gratitude for the many blessings He has given me. I love my husband with all my heart. I feel so blessed to be a mother and love my girls.

Life is great!

We had a fun time seeing the lights at Temple Square. The girls especially enjoyed riding Trax ("the train" as the girls called it) with Grandma Eyre. We met up with Melissa and Aaron and their family as well as Susan.

Oh, I love these girls. They are sooooo busy and fun. It took many tries to get them to smile and look at the camera (well, Lydia is at least looking forward).

Eliza is a sweet little baby and an absolute joy.

A New Beginning!

I'm back!! It's been way too long since I've done this blog thing. I have so many pictures that I wish I had blogged throughout the months. Oh well, all guilt aside...I'm turning over a new leaf and going forward. I'm so excited.
Lots has happened, where do we begin?...

First of all, we are expecting our third girl on Dec. 15th. We're getting so excited to hold her and have her join our family.

Secondly, Dave drew out for a bull elk this year for the bow hunt. After a lot of work and patience, he got one. I was so happy for him I almost cried when he called me to tell me the exciting news. We now have a deep freezer full of elk meat!!

Thirdly, our little girls are changing! It's both and exciting and sad. I love them with ALL my heart. Dave and I are having so much fun with these little munchkins!

Fourth and lastly, we moved! We now live in Lehi just about 9 miles from wonderful Kiowa Valley, Eagle Mountain. We love it here and are enjoying the scenery. We have a large yard that has a lot of potential. It's going to take a lot of work but we're excited! We love our new home as well. Come visit us: 1349 N. 1700 W., Lehi.
