Wow it's been a LONG time since i've posted on our family blog. And I'm not making any promises of keeping it updated often but I thought I would share our pics we had taken as a family.

I am embarrased to say that these pics were taken back in September. Wow, where are my priorities? The fabulous Jessie O'neal took these pics and I did the edits. She was so great with us and our crazy family. Thank you Jessie!

Jude already looks so different. But I knew that we would be expanding our family soon so post pregnancy weight and all I wanted to document our family with just 3 kids. And I am so glad I did! Just goes to show you if you are waiting to document your families when you are back to your goal weight....DON'T. Don't miss out on documenting your life as a family and YES your kids want you in those pictures. I promise!

Happy Birthday Papa Lonnie!

My Dad's birthday is actually tomorrow but since I am thinking about it now and I'm sure I will forget tomorrow I will give a shout out to the best Dad / Grandpa I could ever ask for! Love you Dad!

Max's Birthday

Last sunday was Max's birthday. He is finally 4 years old (he's been asking for months now when he would be 4).


4 things you may not know about Max

1. His eyes, I've never had anyone comment on Max without mentioning his eyes. NEVER!

2. He can do the best pouty face on command. It's really hard to get mad at him.

3. He will melt your heart in about .2 seconds.

4. He will yell at me for several minutes to get my attention just to tell me he loves me. I love you too Max!

P.S. Since I'm plastering this event everwhere else I thought I might as well do it here as well. Sorry if you are sick of hearing about it. But really you don't have to play tennis at all to attend. The exhibition match and dinner will be excellent!And it's a great way for us to honor my mom at the year mark of her passing. I hope to see you there.

Brigham Small

Crazy that 5 years ago yesterday I became a Mom for the first time. And being the terrible mom that I am I don't have any pics from Brigham's birthday yet. But I'm so glad I get to be his mom. 5 things about Brigham that I love...

1. He is so thoughtful (if I do my hair differently or put on eye shadow he always notices and tells me how pretty beautiful I look)

2. He is very anal...I like to call it particular. He definitely knows what he wants, even if it is the color of his cereal bowl in the morning.

3. He is such a good big brother. He's been so good to help with Jude and Max the last few weeks. The other day I came in to him trying to soothe Jude by bouncing him up and down.

4. He is determined. Brigham never lets anything stop him. If he wants to do something, he does it. We are happy that usually what he wants to do is not naughty.

5. He is so trusting of us. If we tell him to jump off the back porch and that he will be ok, he does it. He doesn't ever second guess us. He has so much faith that we won't let him get hurt. It's a little scary for us, we always hope we won't break it.

5 years later and now I am a mom of 3. Jude is almost 1 month old. Here are a few more pics of him. This first one is of Jude on a beautiful quilt made of my mom's clothes. I wanted this picture so badly because I feel like it represents how close My Mom has been involved with him and his life so far.

This picture I took for my sister Anna who sent me this little outfit from her mission. We miss her so much! She is the best Aunt!
