Day one or two?...

Saturday, December 19, 2009
We arrived in New Orleans after a couple of days of driving. Tired of the car we walked to the riverfront for dinner. It was a large mall overlooking the river, by the time we got to the end and had to walk back we had some pretty tired kids! Hopefully they will be very tired and go to sleep even though they are excited to get on the ship tomorrow. There was a smaller German cruise ship docked and it made us all a little more excited to continue this adventure tomorrow.

I loved this, and wanted to share it with you!

Pitter patter

Wednesday, December 2, 2009
Couldn't resist sharing the sweet pitpat of his crawling-- one of my favorite sounds! It is also a helpful warning signal that he is on his way to help with the dishes! ENJOY!

Fall festival

Monday, November 23, 2009

The kids took me to the school fall festival, haha!! No really we volunteered at a game for a half hour-- the real reason we were there! But then we walked around played some games and the kids insisted in waiting in the big long line for these fun balloon hats--30 minutes later they walk away happy and pleased with their cool balloon creations. It was probably the most patient I have ever seen them. I, however kept asking are you sure you want to wait?

I am so blessed to be surrounded by wonderful friends and family, even though life is crazy busy I am surrounded by wonderful people who constantly lift me up! Thank you all!!
I am sharing this pic of a beautiful amaryllis a super friend brought me-- thanks Nat ! A little reminder to stop and smell the flowers once in a while-- forget the toilets and laundry at least for a couple minutes!

Ty's favorite pastime

Wednesday, November 18, 2009
I couldn't resist posting this picture. He loves to stand at the window, and this is where he was when I was walking back up to the house after sending Emily off to preschool with her carpool buddy, so adorable!!!

A woobie?

Our little man will have nothing to do with a binky, but has attached himself to these fuzzy blankets. I have so far been able to keep him happy with several different blankets as long as they feel the same. They get nasty quick so I was determined to be able to have several so there could hopefully always be a clean one!


Where to begin...

Thursday, November 5, 2009

It has been so long since I have posted I don't know where to begin. I keep feeling like I need to catch up - which hopefully I will but today I am just going to post a couple of pictures of our rapidly growing adorable baby boy.
He has been army crawling for 2 months now but has recently started trying to crawl for real. He is certain he wants to be bigger. Because he is so strong he will pull himself to almost standing but with out the coordination he topples over. I keep telling him he is just too little, but he won't listen.

Busy baby calls, more later!

Emily is four!

Sunday, July 12, 2009

Our baby girl is four!
We celebrated her birthday by having a water party,
lots of little friends, water and fun!

It was too windy outside for candles at the party,
so here she is after dinner with the last 4 cupcakes.

A lot has happened in the last 3 months!

Sunday, July 5, 2009
We have been a busy little family the last few months just thought I would share a few of the 230 photos I downloaded today-- I can't believe how behind I am but I thought you might enjoy the look back with me..
My sweet Lonnie holding our new tiny son... I'm a lucky girl to have a guy like him!

Ethan turned six and celebrated the day with spiderman party, here he is with his buddies shooting "spidy web" at targets. It was a fun day I can't believe he is six.

What a fun an energetic boy Ethan is, with so much excitement for everyday life.

Here is when Tyler was tiny enough to fit all snuggly down inside this baby carrier, I think he actually fit using it like this only twice.

Logan has always loved babies and with each new little brother or sister he has always had a special bond with them--so gentle and thoughtful of their needs.

Oh how I love to watch my precious baby sleep, so peaceful and cuddly!
(He is about 2.5 weeks old in this pic)

The big kids selling lemonade with their Sisloff buddies Renee and Ben!

Emily comforting her baby brother when he was not so patiently waiting for Mom!

Holding Sweet little Ty is a favorite pastime at our house! Can you tell?

Not very often does this busy little girl slow down long enough to nap,
but when she does Tucker is always close by he sure does like this girl of ours!

Logan and Ethan wanted "summer" haircuts so here's a pic of our three fuzzy headed boys!

Here's our 2.5 month chunky monkey next to his brand new cousin little Paige.

A close up of sweet little Paige.

Tyler just woke up and was so smiley I had to take a quick pic and add it too!
Don't you love the double dimples, those are gonna be trouble!!!

Gotta go love ya all he's hungry now!
He's practically withering away, can you tell?

Baptism and Blessing, better late than never!

Logan chose this day to be baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was a wonderful day so crazy and full of excitement and anticipation. With a new baby in the house timing was behind but the moment we sat down for the baptismal service I felt this peace wash over me. I embraced the moment and just enjoyed sitting next to my little boy who was not so little any more. We listened to both of his wonderful Grandfathers speak and share with him their knowledge of the gospel plan and how it begins with baptism and being confirmed with the holy ghost .Then I blinked back tears as I watched my sweet husband baptize and confirm our Logan. I hope that he will remember the sweet spirit that was there that day! The room was filled with wonderful family and friends each one so supportive and loving.

Logan chose to share his special day with his precious baby brother, at the end of the meeting Lonnie gave Tyler a special blessing in which he gave him a name and a blessing of strength and courage to become what the Lord would have him be.

Our big boy and his sweet baby brother...

I have more pictures to come check back soon!

Cute little man Tyler "Day 2"

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Here are a few of the shots Lonnie took of him this morning... We are both doing very well and will be going home tomorrow! I think Lonnie and I are still in shock that we now have 4 kids but we both feel extremely blessed to have this new little spirit join our family!

More pictures to come....

If not sooner-- then tomorrow is the day!

Monday, April 13, 2009
Well I had a doctors appointment today and she was surprised that I was 4cm and not in active labor, so she scheduled us to go in tomorrow at 6am to break the water and get this going before baby gets any bigger! Unless of course something happens sooner! So I promise to keep you all posted but so far no news is good news! April 14th is a good day for a birthday it is my brother Devins' birthday!  

Almost there!

Monday, March 30, 2009

Well I finally broke down and had Lonnie take a picture of me... 81/2 months were almost there!

Logan turn's 8!

Well our Logan is eight I can't believe it!  Seems like yesterday they were handing us our sweet little bundle and now he's such a grown up boy!  Next month he is getting baptized when all the Grandma's and Grandpa's visit.  We celebrated his big day with 10 of his friends and a whole pile of Lego's.  It was a crazy couple of hours but they had a great time!


A most splendid day!

A couple of weeks ago Lonnie was able to come home early on a saturday, so we packed a
picnic and the kite and took the clan to the park.  It was a pretty breezy day-- better for kite flying than picnicking but we had fun nevertheless.  It has been too long since we just were able to enjoy hanging out together. We are really enjoying the spring weather! I am looking forward to more warmer weather so we can enjoy more days like this!
