Aaron is a year old!

Aaron is a year old!

It’s been a full year now since Aaron joined our family. It’s amazing how fast it feels. And yet how long ago it seems at the same time.

Reflections 2014

Reflections 2014

In October, we continued our family tradition of participating in the Reflections program.  Including the children’s tradition of being completely set on doing it yet putting it off until the day before the deadline.  In fact, Kathryn did hers *after* her deadline, as the Reflections chairperson decided to give an extra day for the younger […]

The Snowpocalypse of 2014

The Snowpocalypse of 2014

Snow is pretty rare here in Georgia.  Some years we’re lucky if we even see a couple of flakes.  Because of this, we don’t have many city snowplows or sand/salt trucks available. Even a “minor” winter storm can cause the roads to get pretty sketchy, even for a native Utahn.  Out here, snow usually comes […]

Introducing Aaron

Introducing Aaron

Aaron arrived December 2nd at 4:11pm.  I had been hoping to make it to 39 weeks along and be officially “full term” but he decided to come one day shy of that.  Ah well.  :) He weighed 7lbs 8oz and was 21″ long.  Though apparently he shrunk about an inch by the time he was […]

Playing with big brother

The children had some friends over to play after school on Friday – two little girls just older and younger than Emma.  Usually the children all play together, but this time Jonathan found himself left out as the girls were playing inside and he wanted to play outside.  I suggested he invite Kathryn but she […]

Thanksgiving Break and the Pie Games

Thanksgiving Break and the Pie Games

We had a nice, long, quiet Thanksgiving break. Our schools had the whole week off, but we apparently decided that wasn’t long enough for us…

April 2012 - The Zoo

April 2012 – The Zoo

April started out with General Conference and then the children’s Spring Break (and Bryan took some time off work – yay!).  What a great way to start a month! We took the break opportunity to visit the zoo as a family, thanks to a friend who helped me get tickets through our library.  :)  Unfortunately, […]

June 2010

June 2010

I somehow missed posting about our great adventure this past summer (July). It doesn’t seem quite right to leave it unshared, so I’ve set about to make a post for it – about 8 months later. Then I realized I hadn’t even posted about Jonathan’s birthday. Yep, I’ve got a lot of catch-up to do. So here’s summer – this post is part one, or June. :)
