Party at Boondocks

Sky had been asking for a birthday party at boondocks for at least 2 years and I decided that this year would be a good year to do it. Being boondocks and being rather expensive we decided he could only invite 2 friends. He had a blast!!! They bowled, played lazer tag, video games, and Sky did the go carts ( he was the only one tall enough) It is still just crazy to me that he is 8 I wish I could slow time down!
HaPpY bIrThDaY!!!

It is GREAT to be 8!

Wow! It is such a special day! Skyler Has chosen to be Baptized and we couldn't be prouder! The spirit at his baptism was so strong and we are so grateful for all the family and friends who came out to support Sky in this exciting even in his life! 


Nate and I go on vacation every year for our anniversary. This year we chose to spend it in Mexico again and bring some friends with us! We had SO much fun! We went swimming, snorkeling, zip lining, repelling, climbed a Mayan temple, played in the ocean, watched the sun rise, and ate LOTS and LOTS of yummy food!  We spent 6 days in paradise! We stayed at the Valentin and would recommend it to everyone it was a amazing all inclusive resort, we will definitely be going back!

He melts my heart!

I honestly can't believe how much he has grown. It is a bitter sweet thing for me, as much as I love to see him get healthier and bigger every day I can't help but be sad that my baby is getting so big so fast! I absolutley LOVE his smile I could kiss those cheeks all day!

Busy Busy Life!

Wow I didn't realize how much life changes when you have a third baby. Maybe some other people don't feel this way but since Braxton has been born I can't seem to keep up with anything including blogging! I will try to sum up what we have been up to lately in this post then try to be better at keeping up on it.
We had a great Christmas with lots of family fun! The kids got everything they wanted and then some, (we need to work on not spoiling them so much) We had my mom come stay with us for Christmas it was nice to have her here. She has been in and out of the hospital with a bunch of different health problems so we were happy she was well enough to come be with us for that weekend. She has had 4 surgeries in the last 4 months one of which was to amputate her leg it has been a very emotional roller coaster, her mental state has been going down also. I am trying to cherish every moment I get with her now.

We were happy to welcome in the new year 2011 was full of lots of ups and downs and was mostly enjoyed. We hope 2012 is just as good or better than 2011.

We got a gym membership to our aquatic center and we have been LOVING it! I think I am going to run the 5k this July again ( I did it 2 years ago) The kids love going swimming there and running the track. We will be putting our passes to good use I am sure.

We booked our anniversary trip, Nate and I try to go away every year for our anniversary and this year our great friends the Aardemas are joining us and we are going to MEXICO! Cant wait!

Last but NOT least Braxton is growing and is FINALLY on the charts he is in the 1st percentile! We couldn't be more excited!Keep growing little buddy!

He smiles!!!! :)

We have been waiting for Braxton to smile for what feels like forever. My other two kids seemed to smile at a very early age so I kept feeling bad because we couldnt get a smile out of him. But he was holding out on us and let me just tell you it was well worth the wait!


I always try to do a theme for Halloween and this year we had a hard time comming up with one since we have an addition to our family that we had to add in. After a few weeks of thinking we decidedd on the Mario theme. LOL So Sky was Mario Braxton was Luigi and Abbie was Princes Daisy. We thought it was cuter than princess peach. It was fun to take them trick or treating and see peoples expressions when they say that we even had a baby luigi. Of coarse they got TONS of candy and had lots of fun! :)
