Spring Break

We had an amazing week in Escondido. The Welks Resort exceeded our expectations. Legoland was fun the first day .... mommy and baby decided to stay behind on the second day. Perfect beach weather in Oceanside. Happy kids. Sunny weather and sun-kissed skin. Wish we could vacation like this more often!!

My Grandpa Rocks!

I have the most amazing grandfather. Jason and I took the kids to see Grandpa Jesse on New Years Day. I wish that I had more time to visit him since he's only about a 4 hour drive away. He is turning 94 years old this month but still has the energy of a young man. I think he'll live many more years.

Fun With My Hubby

Jason and I recently celebrated our 14 year wedding anniversary. Wow! I was like 14 when I married him .... So, we took off and saw a movie and ate a DELICIOUS dinner at my favorite restaurant, Flemings. OH MY GOSH! If you haven't tried Flemings, I highly recommend it. We have dined there numerous times and I LOVE LOVE it -- almost as much as I love Jason. My tastebuds are STILL watering and it's been a week since I've been there. Can't wait to go back for Jason's birthday next month. Enough about food, it's not helping my diet. So, Olivia took some fun pictures of us right before we left on our hot date. Here they are. Do we look like a happily married couple? Absolutely!

Christmas 2009

Christmas time IS the most wonderful time of the year. We had a great Christmas -- holiday programs, choir concerts, work parties, Christmas Tree Lane, Cindy Lane, goodies galore, giving gifts, acting out the birth of the Savior with a REAL baby, Hayes' first Christmas, wrapping gifts, enjoying Christmas vacation with Jason on vacation for 12 straight days, more food, 14 year anniversary, Christmas cards and photos........ and WONDERFUL family and friends to share it with. We love you!

Whose that cute kid with the green antlers?

Chandler is standing in the backrow -- green scarf (thanks, Michelle)
Jason and I made a yummy Christmas Eve dinner for the 6 of us.

Traditional photo in front of the tree -- dang, I have cute kids!

Gotta love the towels, sheets, blankets and is that Batman on the Shepherd's shirt?

Santa brings bears each Christmas.

That's Chandler -- goofy boy!

So sweet!

We finally have some family photos to share! And, I'm so happy with how they look! Here's one of my favorite shots. I wish Hayes was looking at the camera, but babies are so uncooperative sometimes, I tell ya.

So, I'm finally back to blogging after falling off the Blog Wagon for nearly 1 1/2 months; shame on me! Too much FaceBook, I suppose. Time to change my ways and start blogging again ...

My little Santa Baby on Halloween
3 months old

Don't they look great! I loved their costumes this year.

Olivia and her friend, Ryann, were in the school play, Scrooge.
They woke up early every morning for play practice.

Hayes chills with his cousins during Thanksgiving vacation.

Literally chillin' -- Utah is so stinkin' cold.

We had a WONDERFUL time with family in
Utah and miss them already.

We are BYU football FREAKS. We watched every game --more than once.We are looking forward to the bowl game.
Go Cougars!

Chandler played soccer this season after taking several years off. He did great and improved tremendously during the two months. We're so proud of him for trying his hardest!

This was Davis EVERYpractice and game. Full throttle!
Jason was an assistant coach for Davis' team this year. It was a great Father/Son bonding experience. hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Davis' team was moved to a higher division and I could not believe the physical contact and aggression exhibited by these boys! Wow! These little boys are going to bring home the state title someday.

Happy Birthday, Davis!

Davis turned 6 last week. For months Davis was counting down the days until his birthday and it finally arrived. He wished for a D.S. game, a skateboard, and anything sports related. We celebrated as a family the night of his birthday and then the next day Davis invited friends to a movie party. Jason and I took 12 kids to see the movie, AstroBoy! We had our hands full! After the party we ate pizza and cake and opened oodles of presents. We had a fun two days celebrating Davey's #6 -- now only 359 days til #7.

I don't make birthday cakes. Baskin Robbins makes the best ones.

Before school.

After school -- future professional skateboarder

Cake #2 -- Vons also makes yummy cakes. Two cakes -- my kids are so spoiled.

Davis with his buddy. More presents.

My baby -- well, sorta. He was for 6 years.
