My baby is one!!

One year ago - my kids all together finally!
My sweet baby!

Lindsey - one year old! She is still just as sweet and happy as the day I had her. I couldn't have asked for a better baby. Not a day goes by when I don't smile and think about how lucky I am to have her as a daughter. This year has totally flown by, I think it is because we have enjoyed every second!

Clear Creek

Lauren had her 5th grade school camp at Clear Creek the beginning of March. She really wanted me to go and so since I LOVE the snow, I volunteered to go. I made sure to NOT bring an snow clothes so that I wouldn't have to help outside. I was able to stay inside and help with math games for 4 hours as the girls rotated stations. It was a lot of fun to hang out with Lauren and see her interact with her friends. I also got to know some of the other moms. Which eventually led me to be an assistant Stake Girls Camp Director, this June. (The director was there with her daughter and in a conversation mentioned how much I LOVE (which I really do) Girls Camp. We also got school food - corn dogs, frozen burritos and much more "yummy" food. Bryan held down the fort while I was gone and came home to a clean home and happy kids and husband! He would stay home and do that anyday then go to work!

Not surprised...

This is what happens when Lindsey plays in her crib after her nap...
The brown "blanket" in her crib is actually the canopy from the crib.

She pulled it down. Now it just stays down unless we are showing the
house and then we put it up. I wondered how long it was going to last. Oh well.

Bryan and Matthew with David Bonetto. Bryan and Matthew's
middle name is David, after this David. He is Bryan's dad good
friend. They live in Fresno and we wanted Matthew to meet his
namesake. We hope Matthew realizes the wonderful man
he is named after.

Catch Up...

I figured I better post something since it has been awhile. We had a great Christmas and enjoyed having Bryan home for most of the kids vacation. The day after Christmas we left for California. I was dreading the drive for 2 reasons - Lindsey in the car for 12 hours plus stops and then the weather. It was snowing when we left Friday morning but stopped soon after. The roads weren't that great till after Cedar City. The kids were GREAT. Not sure if it was the new Christmas presents ( the three older kids got Nintendo DS's ) and new DVD's to watch or they were just easy going that day. Lindsey had her 9 month check the week before and got the go ahead to go front facing in her car seat!! Yea! I am not exaggerating when I say she was fussy for about 5 minutes TOTAL all the way to Fresno. It took us 13 1/2 hours to get there. It was one of our best drives yet! We had fun in Fresno visiting with family. Bryan's brother, nephew and aunt and cousins live there. My parents, sister and her family and brother and his family all still live there. We took the kids to Christmas Tree Lane to see where Mom and Dad met for the first time back in 1991, and visited our favorite eating places! We left for home on Friday Jan 2nd. We didn't' get out of town till 1:30pm California time, 2:30 Utah time. We made it to St. George and stayed the night there. Lindsey was getting FOUR more teeth in and it made for a long drive. It also gave Bryan an excuse to have In and Out one more time, since we only had it ONCE in Fresno. We made it home late afternoon on Saturday. It was nice to be home in our owns beds! The kids also had fun playing with their new toys.

It isn't letting me add pictures, I will do it later.
