Beckett at 2 and 3 weeks

Beckett is 2 weeks old in the white and blue outfit and almost 3 weeks (tomorrow) with the binkie in his mouth. Time is already flying. Gotta make the most of it. And a random pic of Asher and Addi. She is getting so big and grown-up.

Everyone Loves holding Beckett

I love all these pics of family holding Beckett. Addi is constantly trying to hold Beckett. I think she held him for about 2 hours while she read her book. My Mom came up for a week after I had the baby to help me out, it was so nice to have her here helping me with keeping the house clean and in order. And its everyone's favorite thing to do, fall asleep with Beckett snuggled up on you. Love it!

My Little Man Asher

Asher is so into guns, swords and lightsabers. He has to have this belt on to carry around his gun and lightsaber and any other weapon he can manage to fit into the belt or his pockets, if he has any. It is so funny!! He then gets on his batman mask to finish out the outfit. He even started singing the Star Wars theme song with his lightsaber thrust up into the air. He brings so much fun and humor into our lives. I can't wait until him and Beckett are running around together as action heroes. But then the other day he runs down with one of the girls purse on his arm and had to have it, he wanted to be just like Mom and the girls.

New Addition to our family--Beckett

On September 21st at 8:30am we welcomed our last addition to our family, a boy, who we named Beckett. He has lots of dark brown hair, weighed 7lbs 12 oz and 193/4" long. He lost a pound in the hospital so went home weighing 6 lb 15 oz. He is such a sweet boy and the kids can't get enough of him. Asher had one time so far where you could tell he wasn't happy with the having a new brother. He kept whining for someone to pay attention to him and then he finally clawed at Beckett as we were changing his diaper. Hope this doesn't continue!

Late Night Fun

The kids were all "suppose" to be in bed, but they came down and showed me the beauty salon fun they had. Check out the girl shirt that Asher has on. He thought it was so much fun.

Sleeping Buddies

Chadd and Asher found the most comfortable way to sleep:) So funny! I can't believe they could even sleep!

District Spelling Bee

Addi was in the district spelling bee last thursday the 22nd. She and a 5th grader represented her school. There were 30 kids from all the elementary and mid high schools there to compete. She did really well for a 3rd grader, she made it to the 3rd round with only 14 kids left, and she and one other girl were the only 3rd graders still in the bee. She beat out the 5th grade boy from her school and much older kids. She missed the word "imam" which is an arabic word that she has never heard of before. Everyone in the room kind of gasped like "ooh". Anyways, if you know the word it isn't hard to spell but when you don't well it was pretty foreign to her. She spelled it imome. Anyways, we are super proud of her, especially since their isn't a list to study from and we didn't do any real prep for it. Good going Addison!!! She got her name in the local paper which she thought was really cool.

Asher Loving His Dog

I got this dog that velcros around a blanket at my baby shower. Asher loves to velcro it around himself instead. He thinks it's the greatest thing and runs around with it snug around his neck. So sweet!

London and the things she says

London always says the funniest things. And if I was smart I would write them down more often. The other day she said she wanted hard boiled eggs and let's go to the store to buy some. I then told her you can't buy that at the store and Mommy needs to make them. She then proceeding to tell me in her sassiest know-it-all voice, Grandma does! I then say no Grandma makes them too. And again in her sassy voice she says, then how did Grandma get the shells on?! Like she had wrapped up her case against me and how can you be so dumb Mom! Man, she cracks me up.

Addi with her first set of nails

Addi and London went with their Daddy on an emergency trip to Ruidoso to fix a DVD machine on Saturday night, he felt bad since he just came back from being down there 3 days. Anyways, he promised to get them happy meals and a toy they could pick out at walmart. So, they were excited to go on a 7 hour trip with their Dad for these exciting promises:) Doesn't take much to make them happy. They got ready to go with their DVD tv, Didj, Leapster, stuffed animals, blankets, and treats and off they went happily. They got back around 1am, but were so excited to show me their awesome presents. London got a dart gun and something else and Addi got some liquid candy and press-on nails with decals. She worked on filing and putting on decals for hours and then had me put them on. She was more than a little excited about them and after she found out she couldn't get them wet for an hour had me brush her teeth for her. She even asked London to open a bag for her so she wouldn't break one of her nails. It was so cute to watch and see her so excited to be so grown up. And London did her own hair tonight and was so pleased with herself for doing such a good job. She asked me how it looked and then showed me two ways she could wear the do and asked which one looked better. She then primped in front of the mirror for awhile. You gotta love girls. And I sure love mine!

Happy New Year!

Ok, you all have seen about all our pics from our vacation, so now it's your turn to update your blogs so I can enjoy seeing what your families have been up to. Make it a new years resolution.
Love you all!


Check out all the bruises and cuts on Asher. Boys!

Family Pics

More family pics I know you are all dying to see:) I have to post them, since they happen so rarely. Taking pics is not Chadd's favorite thing to do, in fact I think he would rather pass a kidney stone then take family pictures. What do you do?! And you gotta love the one with me and Chadd and Asher crying for Chadd to pick him up. We would put him down and he would freak out and run right over, so this pic will give us some fun memories.

Kid Pictures

My friend came over and took some pics for me. These ones of the kids I thought were so cute and the one with Asher laying down is him being uncooperative:)


Just some pics with the cousins, Grandpa and Dad.

Dinosaur Museum

Chadd's parents have a pass to the Dinosaur Museum in Lehi, so we all went up and met Aunt Leslie, Aunt April and Uncle Ben there. They had the most fun in the water area, Asher loved throwing stuff. Well, Taya wasn't a big fan of getting her hands wet and dirty it was so funny.
