Family Time

It was great to have my family here to help!


Travel safe! We'll miss you!

Aaron and Audrey

Aaron loves his sister so much. He is an amazing big brother and he loves to go around bragging about the fact that he is a big brother. He loves to share his toys, lay next to her, and he is never ending fascinated with just watching and kissing her!
The other day, Audrey started fussing while laying on her back. With Eric watching, Aaron went up, rolled her to her stomach, patted her back, waited for her to burp and stop crying, and then rolled her back to her back. He totally knew what she needed!
If you listen close, you can hear him humming to her.
Aaron has started calling her "Gorgeous Girl" like I do.
One day, he came up to her and I asked, "Isn't she beautiful?" He then stroked her head and said, "She Beautiful." He then looked at me with a thoughtful look and after a bit, he stroked my head and said, "She Beautiful." Such a sweet boy!

Aaron loves to do things for Audrey. He loves to color her pictures.

He also loves to  play songs and sing to her. I often find him singing her songs like Itsy Bitsy Spider. He even plays songs for her on the drums :)

Aaron has started saying prayers without our help. Lots of the time he mumbles, but we can always make out a few words. Every prayer includes the word, "Audrey."
I hope they are always such good friends and that he continues to protect and take care of her the way he does now!

MY Lover

 I am so lucky to be married to this man
(and so grateful to be able to stand this close to him again - now that my belly has shrunk!)

Beach Trip!

Tonight when Eric got home from work, we piled in the car and went to the beach with my brother and sisters!

It was super windy beyond the cave near the ocean so Aaron didn't want to go near the water... he wanted to play in the sand!

The crazies in the ocean! Everyone but Aaron, Audrey and I went in...

 Thomas bought MONSTER marshmallows and Aaron was in heaven!

I'm so glad we took the time to go to the beach while they were here! It was a blast and I hope we go again soon!

Temple Trip

My brother, Thomas, was called to the Portland, Oregon mission. YAHOO!!! So while they were here, he asked me to go do baptisms with him today!

The girls out here better watch out - a S.T.U.D. missionary is on his way!

I seriously love this kid! I hope we get to run into him while he's here!
