Luau Fun

Here is a blurry pic of our cute 2 year old at the Pitre Luau a month or so ago. Grace found some of Kenna's moon boots in her closet and was trotting around in those all day (in the 95 degree weather I might add)...too bad we didn't get a picture of that.

And last but not least here is a picture of Grace on the bear statue at Aspen Grove family camp. She is growing like a weed :)

Claire Bear

Isn't she adorable?! Updated pictures of Gracie will be posted tomorrow.

Don't you wish they could stay this little forever? A tear comes to my eye every time I see this picture. What a special time for a mother and her child.

We've MOVED!

The past few years have been a whirlwind for Mike and I. Since 2009 we have been through losing Mike's job, to moving in with his parents, to Sue getting a new position with the Governor's office, to Mike attending and completing his training, to Mike getting a new job with the University of Utah Healthcare, to moving into a rental home in Riverton, to having a brand new beautiful baby girl and to now...purchasing our new home in Riverton!! We have been through ups and downs and everything in between but we finally feel completely settled. We have everything we could possibly ask for...healthy and happy children, a wonderful home and fantastic jobs.

LOVE LOVE the gas stove and double oven.

It's been a long time.....

Yes indeed it's been a long time and I am embarrassed to say that our little Claire Bear is almost 4 months old and I haven't even added her to our blog. So here she is! Enjoy...........

I must say she has changed a lot in the past few months but I will post more pictures tomorrow. :)

We LOVE cousins!

While Mike worked hard in the backyard building Clark's shop (and I stayed home to sleep off a bad cold) Grace enjoyed baking some cupcakes with her cousins and "Aunt eesha" aka Aunt Elleisha.

Crystal and Grace adding sprinkles to their creations.

As you can see...she enjoyed not only baking it but eating it as well.

While daddy and uncle clark are working hard... you will find Grace and Crystal giggling and smiling on the swing set.
And sippin' on their slurpees.....
And even coloring some pictures!
I love watching these girls grow up together. I can already tell they will be best friends forever. Thanks Elleisha for carrying my daughter to and from 7-11....while pushing Cynthia in the stroller and most likely holding Crystal's hand while you walk. LOL You are superwoman!

Oldies but Goodies

I love coming across pictures I didn't know about (these were taken at least 6 months ago). Mike must have snapped these while I was at work one day.

It's a GOOD thing our little Ace is so calm. The poor dog just endures Gracie's torture. Although Grace is learning (after being disciplined) that she can't irritate the dog...it scares me to death to think that Ace might "snap" one day.

AHHHH!! Seriously, poor Ace!

I have a feeling Ace got some good licks in.

Best buddies

On Saturday night Mike and I got the opportunity to watch "Kenna"who is one week (to the day) older than Grace. Most of you probably don't know this but Grace is SO incredibly shy. She is completely attached to her "Momma", "Dadda", "Pa" and "Nana" so we were a little unsure how this night was going to go. Fortunately, Grace and McKenna had an absolute blast and were up playing until 11:30pm. Seriously, Grace (nor Kenna) had ever been up nearly that late...ever! I can't wait to see these two grow up together..they are already BFF's for life!

Grace was so excited to actually have someone sit at her table with her. McKenna would point to the chair and tell Grace to "sit".

Playing with your friends toys is always so much more fun than playing with your own toys!

3 Years Come and GONE

Today is my anniversary and I am filled with complete happiness and love for this man.

It seems like yesterday I was doing this.....

And then this....

And then this bundle of joy entered our lives.....
And last BUT certainly not least, little Gracie was a true blessing from our Heavenly Father.
The pieces of our little puzzle are complete!

Mike, thank you for being the incredible man you are. Grace is so lucky to have you as her example, best friend, and daddy. WE LOVE YOU!

Pool Fun

Yep, we love the pool and sprinklers, and the slide in the pool and the ball that sprays water and even the watering can when mom is trying to hydrate the flowers BUT funny thing is: Grace just started NOT liking the bath??!! I don't get it either.

All we have to say is "CHEESEY FACE" and this is what we get.

And yes...no need for applause...I planted the flowers you see. Well, ok ok ok my mother in law may have paid for them and told me where to place the exact flowers so they look perfect but I'm the one who got her fingers dirty!! We have people knock on the door and tell my in-laws how incredible their landscaping is but don't worry..I pat myself on the back for it! :)
