The main things in our lives at this time...

Between these 3 wonderful blessing our lives stay pretty busy and we love it. We are excited to have the electric finally done on the house someday though. We have amazing family and neighbors that have been helping us a lot, because of them it is going quite smoothly.

This is our great room area, we don't have cabinets or anything yet so it's not much to look at but I have promised I would post pix. forever and I'm finally getting around to it so here you are.
The way our house looks today, we're getting there.
Spencer crackin' himself up as we were on our way to the house this morning.

Addi is getting really good at her sprawled out sleeping.

The face that melts my heart...

Spencer is getting really good at a pouty face. Here are a few of his best. I love this little man.

Miss Addilyn Jean

Here is what our sweet little angel looks like these days. She has already brought so much to our family, we love her and are so glad that we have been blessed with her. Addi chezzin' it!

Daddy is FINALLY finished!!!

Carl is now finished with school. YEAH! We have played basketball and gone on walkks with the kids more since Carl finished school in the past week then we have in the last year and a half while he was working on his masters.
Spencer loves playing ball with his dad, mom is too short to lift him to get the ball in the basket, I'm almost there.
We are very proud of Daddy and how hard he worked to get his master's, we are absolutly thrilled that he is finished. CONGRATS, Daddy!!! Thank you for all your hard work, we love you.

More pix.

I received a message from our nursery leader one Saturday when I got home. She said to give her a call, I don't really know her so I had no clue what it was about. I called her back and bless her heart, she said that our little 15 month old could come to nursery. She said she didn't know why she had thought to call us but she had thought she should call us; maybe she's watched us trying to juggle both our babies and saw that we don't get to listen much at church these days. This is him heading to church the first Sunday he would be going to nursery. He loved nursery when he first got there. He left me and went and played on the slide. When they asked all the kids to sit down for the lesson and he realized I wasn't there he started crying. He was still crying when I came in to check on him, he continued to cry while I held him and he ate his treats. Eventually he calmed down and enjoyed it again, although he looked over his shoulder frequently to make sure he hadn't been left. Spencer sat down, held his hands out and grunted. Below is what he was requesting. He does this frequently. He loves to hold his baby sister and thinks that mom hogs her too much and that he should get to hold her whenever he wants, even if she is upset or sleeping. I'm glad he loves her.

He wants out of his chair, this pix. just made me laugh.

Heading out for our daily walk/jog. The kids love them, as do I. It is great for all of our sanity.

Some of more pix

There really isn't any order to these pix. Just some of what we have been up to.

The first weekend of this month we went to Layton for Enoch's blessing. We stayed the night with Gram Gunnell in Farmington. In her guest room she has this little rocking chair. Spencer loved it! When he first saw it he went and climbed into it and spent a good deal of our time there in this chair. It was just his size. We had a lot of fun seeing family and it was especially good to get to stay with Gram and spend time with her, we don't get to see her much. This is Spencer and Addi holding hands while we traveled to the city. They held hands a lot during the trip and both enjoyed it. At one point on the trip Addi was shreaking and I couldn't figure out why. I tried her binki, food, singing, etc. nothing that usually works was working. When we were finally able to stop and take her out I noticed blood on her hand. I looked closer and realized that she was shreaking because Spencer has loved her a little too much and dug a few little holes into her hand while they were holding hands. And we thought he was being all sweet trying to comfort her while she was upset.
A pix of our sweet little girl. This one is older still but newer than anything you've seen yet.

This man takes his food seriously. Especially if it is a chocolate chip cookie, or anything with sugar in it will suffice.

Our babies ready for church.

We are still alive...

The main reason I was posting some pix. is because I wanted to show some recent ones of our little girl. Apparently all of our recent ones are on the camera still and need downloaded, I don't have the energy to stay up and so all of that though, I really want sleep. I took the kids up the canyon today and went on a walk. We got some good pix. and had a lot of fun. I will post some of those to show how big our little lady is getting (I really will try to post them soon).

I only saw a little thumbnail of this so I didn't realize it was blurry, sorry. This is an old pix. but Spencer still loves on his sister a lot. He wants to hold her a lot and make sure that she is okay. If she is too okay in his mind, such as sleeping peacefully in her basinet, he wants to make sure that she hasn't forgotten him so he shakes the bassinet as hard as he can. Hence, she usually doesn't take her naps in the bassinet anymore. He has gotten really good at throwing diapers away though. After I change a diaper, his or hers, he usually holds his hand out for the diaper and takes it to the garbage for me. He even leaves them in now, in the not to distant past he would throw them away, and later go and retrieve them and bring them back to me.
I love this pix. of our little man!
I thought this one was cute also, apparently blurry though. He loves his trucks, Thanks Uncle Corey. He also loves his binki.

This is him running away from messing with the washer. he figures if he gets away quick enough I won't know it was him messing with the wash cycle.

This is a pix. of our home, Juani has been asking me to post some forever, so here is one, it doesn't look anything like this now though. Also, now that I am posting this I realize that you've seen it since then, Sorry Juan. But hey I tried.

I really will post some recent ones of our little girl soon. I didn't realize they are all on the camera still. Live is going well for us and we are starting to know what 3 hours of sleep in a row feels like again, and it feels really really good, we love it!

Spencer is pleased to announce...

It's been so long that it took me a minute to figure out how to make a post and add a pix. I am a loser. Here is our baby girls birth announcement.
