My boys!

OK- Dawson is so mobile these days. He is crawling, rolling and doing anything he can to move. So, lets face the facts... I'm not used to it. I now know I cant leave him for one second. The poor child may not make it another day if I don't get it through my head. Ahh. Last night he was in his bumbo that was on the chair. I got up for one second and the next thing I know he is on the floor. He leaned over and the whole thing fell off the chair. He had a huge goose egg on his head. Then, since I didn't learn my lesson, I let Ella have him on the couch and all of a sudden he wasn't there anymore. Yup, he was on the floor. This was the result of that incident. Poor child that has to have me for a mother! I feel horrible. My only excuse is that I am not used to having a baby around, although I think its a good one!! Dylan and Ella aren't little any more so I am going to have to learn fast.
Dylan and Beau at there basketball game. Isn't he the cutest??

The sweetest boy ever and always has the girls chasing him. How could they not?

Dawsons first attempts at crawling!

Happy Baby!

I love everything about this child. He is so yummy!

New Year, New Goal!!

I got on my blog for the first time in a long time today. Actually, I was shocked when I looked at the date from the last time I added a new post. It was August. I cant believe its been that long. This is my only form of journaling, so I'm a little disappointed in myself for not keeping up on things. I feel like I could have written so much about life and events and Dawson. He is growing so fast and I haven't written down all the cute and adorable things is doing. I do believe though, that you shouldn't dwell on the past and that regret is pointless. So, with that said I have made it my new goal to keep up on my only form of journaling and add pictures and captions of my life's events. My life is good. I really couldn't ask for more. I love my family and we are all happy and healthy. We have so much and we are so blessed. I'm going to post a ton of pictures from the last couple of months. I will categorize them by month so ENJOY!!


This was another busy month for us. The first of December is the annual DICKENS FESTIVAL. Michelle and I sing at it every year. This year Ella and Emmy sang with us. It was a lot of fun watching them perform. We also sang in Cedar City at the Children's Christmas Festival. Christmas music is the best and I also love singing with my sister.
For the third year I hosted Christmas Eve Dinner. My family comes down and we eat lots of yummy food, sing a couple of songs, watch Mr. Kruegers Christmas, read out of the Bible and of course open pajamas!!
We spent New Years Eve with Derek's family. We went ice skating, ate tons of food and had a great time!


It seems that I didn't take many pictures in November, probably because October was an overload!! Here are the few that I have. It was Emmy's birthday and the boys went shooting Thanksgiving morning! Oh lets not forget that I think I can cut hair! I cut Michelle's bangs and they are super cute!


This was a very busy, but fun month! Derek had Dental Convention this month and it was in HAWAII!! We took the whole family and stayed for 10 days. We had the time of our lives! It was great except for the part that I had to be in a bathing suit the entire time. Oh well. I wasn't sure how it would be with the baby, but it he was perfect.

Ella had her 6th birthday, I had a girls night out called "witches night out", of course we had my birthday, trick or treating, Dylan earned his Bear, we went to the pumpkin patch and finally went to the long awaited "THRILLER" out at Tuacahn. It was a super fun month!



Nothing to exciting happened this month. We spent time with friends and family, did a little hike up on the Dixie, and it was the start of soccer season. Ella is defenitly a natural. One game she scored 9 goals and her coach had to tell her not to score any more so her teamates could have a chance. It was funny!
