playing catch up


I have been meaning to post about our christmas vacation (not restful one bit:) to utah. But this last week, i've been dealing with 3 sick people (very good excuse, i think). But now that they are getting all better, I have no excuse! And since our batteries died one day into our little trip and never replaced them, our pictures are few...but proof, that we were there.
Some of the highlights were: meeting my new nephew (3 months) Brody, and new niece (1 month) Hadley. So adorable. Seeing the rest of the family. Catching up with good friends. Eating way too much. Staying up way too late. Announcing baby #3. Working-out with my sisters. Going to see the lights on Temple Square. Freezing our butts off!

(pictured above are all our nephews and nieces)

We wanted to have our own little christmas here at home. So we didn't leave for Utah til christmas day around 10:30am. We arrived in Salt Lake after 10pm. The kids did great (thank heavens for portable dvd players!), the traffic wasn't bad, and the weather was perfect!

(no, Clark's forehead is not dirty...just the remains of a goose egg)





And here's my attempt at getting pictures taken of the kids after church (just had to throw that one in there:)

Happy New Year!

I love how you just threw baby # 3 in there. Good way to check and see if people actually READ your blog! CONGRATS!!! But now I want more info! Good reason to give you a call. I need to find your number. After losing my phone several times I haven't imported even close to half the numbers I want in my phone. So exciting, hope you're feeling good:)
