Yes folks we are expecting baby #3 in early June. Just went to the doctor today and everything is looking good. Chloe is very excited. It was nice to hear only one heart beat at the doctor's office today.Chloe has been telling me the last couple of weeks that there are two babies. Lets just pray that doesn't happen.

Is it just me or does Christmas seem to come earlier every year. Don't get me wrong I love Christmas but in November. We haven't even had Thanksgiving yet. My neighbor started decorating his front yard yesterday. Don't forget it was only November 8th. He has his driveway lined with candy canes, 4 wreaths on his house, and 6 large lawn ornaments in the front yard. Maybe I'm just the Grinch but I just don't want to be looking at it for the next 2 months. I don't think I would be so upset about it, but he is also my neighbor that decorated his house for Halloween on September 12th. Which he goes all out for every year with tombstones, Gothic stuff and every Witch he could find. It takes Chloe 6 months to recuperate after being scared out of her wits on Halloween by him (who dresses up with a mask). She won't even talk to the guy for months. But we still got to love them we couldn't ask for better neighbors.

Hawaii 2009

My Grandparents invited us to go to Hawaii with them. Of course we could not turn them down. My cousin just returned from his mission their in August so we all got to go back and live it up with him. It was fun having him as our tour guide and telling us cool stories of his mission. The BSU vs. Hawaii football game was the same time. It all worked out so nicely. We had such a great time hanging out with family. My dear sweet Mother took our kids. Ashley and Todd were with us too so she had 5 kids 6 and under. Thanks Mom we owe you big time.
Taylor lived in Hawaii for a semester while he went to BYU-Hawaii. It was fun having him show us where he lived and the beaches that he like to go to. We found some really good buggie boarding and body surfing beaches. We snorkeled at Hanama Bay on afternoon. Thanks to all for such a great trip. You guys are the best.

Sandy Beach also know as Break Neck Beach. When we got out of the car and the lifeguard saw us with our resort beach towels he came and told us that only experienced swimmers and surfers were allowed in the water. Did we really look that obvious. We found a beach just up the road that was more our skill level.

Beautiful flowers everywhere.

The BSU football game. We killed them!!!!

The Honolulu Stake Tabernacle. This building looked like a combination of a LDS temple and a catholic church. Very interesting. A couple of Honolulu wards attend church here every Sunday. It is in Downtown Honolulu.
Pearl Harbor with Grandma. We had the best weather. We landed in SLC on Friday and it was 38 degrees. Taylor did not take any type of jacket so he looked like this when we got off the plane.

The Polynesian Cultural Center

Sea turtles by our resort!

October Update

For FHE we carved pumpkins. We were looking online for templates and Chloe saw this one so of course we had to do it. She is planning on being Cinderella for Halloween so I will post pictures soon of them together.

Now a little show and tell. This is my beautiful cousin Erica and her charming new husband Nate. Don't worry the baby is mine. Sophie loved Nate. At one time I had to pry her out of his arms. They were married last weekend in Twin Falls. Such a cute couple.

We went boating with some friends in our ward. We had such a great time. This is us trying out the surf board. Also a little side note the date was September 25th. I have never been boating that late in the year without freezing my fannie off.

Taylor's accident

I got the dreaded phone call from my husband calling to ask me to meet him somewhere to take him to the hospital. He finally did it. What I worry about the most when he rides his dirt bike. He wrecked just going out of the parking lot. So the damage is a broken collar bone and a completely bruised hip. This picture is a couple days after the accident. Our camera finally bit the dust so these pictures were taken on his palm (not the best quality).
About a week later. Looks alot better!!!!

Dirt Biking

We went dirt biking with the Hardman's.

Abbey and Hillary!

Chloe and Sophie!

Going to Church! Chloe loves this coat and calls it her Tiger coat.

Hockey Game

We went to the Idaho Steelheads game in February with the girls. Chloe loved all the music they played and even made it on big screen during the dance off.

Chloe just turned 3 and lets just say it was the best day of her life. Both grandparents came as well as many Aunts, Uncles, and cousins.
I love this picture of Sophie and her big eyes.

Our Trip

Our cruise ship.
Chloe laughed when she saw this picture. I guess we embarrassed her.

Look who I ran into in St. Thomas. Rachel an old friend from high school. Small world.

Wendy and the Captain of the ship.

Our Trip

The Tyler's were so nice to put us up for the night. We went to Billie Bob's safari in the Everglades with them. We saw lots of interesting wildlife including turtles, pigs, bison, alligators, deer, did I say pigs, and more pigs.
Can you believe we actually came home. Crystal clear water and 80 degree weather in the Bahamas.

This place is amazing. It reminded us alot of Zion's National Park. You can go and walk thru the rocks behind us. Virgin Gourda (The Bathes). The British Virgin Island.

We went hiking in the DR in mud up to our ankles. You are suppose to rent horses and be carried into this waterfall. That would be for sissy's and people thought we were really strange and kept asking us if we lost our horses. Nope just out for an adventure we would tell them. Our husbands even got asked if they were going to make their wifes walk in mud. One of them replied "Of Course".

On the trail, Laura (in green shirt) being helped by Jose. He was very helpful and very concerned for all of us. Jeremy, Rick, Katie, and Wendy on the trail to the waterfall.

Sophie with Aunt Kari during Christmas in Soda Springs.
Chloe with her motorcycle helmet on. The only way we could get her to wear it was to show her the PINK butterfly's on the sides. She won't put anything on unless it is pink. If you ask her when her birthday is she will say pink.

The girls in their Christmas dresses. Sophie looks scared to death and I don't know what Chloe is doing to Sophie's head.

Chloe and Papa plowing the driveway.
