My cute new Nephew

Born on my brother's birthday! Z's family likes to share birthdays with other members of the family.

MY parents were out of town and Z went into labor. She wanted to wait until after Halloween but some things you just can't hold off on. I got to go down and spend a few special hours at the hospital with her and baby "Chacho". I felt special since I was the first extended family member to see this angel here on earth. I am so lucky to have my sister close by.

They have not chosen a name so this is what we will call him. He was 7 lbs 11 oz and 20.5 inches long. My strong sister went natural again (3rd time). She's awesome! She looked really good!

Changing a messy diaper!

Random Stuff

K's Senior Picture. She is so beautiful. I cannot believe that she will graduate in 2009! She is so amazing at everything she does!!

UEA. Feeding the ducks with cousins.

This is a funny picture because it is so typical of taking pictures. We have to set up the kids. The older girls are ready. We are trying to set up G somewhere where she will stay. And CR and S are in their own little boy world. This time they are reading Calvin and Hobbs but it's always something that we have to bring them back to earth for. Since they are the only two boys, for now, they have to stick together!

From Summer to Winter to Fall?

So one day it's nice and warm.

A few days later we are building a snowman.

And a few days after that we are picking pumpkins.

And all within a weeks time.

K's 17th Birthday

WOW! Is it really possible? She's our baby? How we love having her in our family! Although we sometimes don't see her much since she is busy with high school, college, work, and having fun.

Her birthday was during conference so we didn't get a chance to do much. We went to Salt Lake so we could install a program on my parents computer and then KC, my dad and Jonas went to priesthood together while the girls hung out at Zildy's house and scrapbooked. C made us some yummy brownies. We came home and opened presents. The one she liked the most was the Carrie Underwood tickets. This is her excitement!

Sunday we got together and celebrated her birthday with dinner and and ipod cake. How much better can your birthday be when the prophet speaks to you!?

These are some of our reasons why we love K:

She is a great shopping partner. (C)

She makes a funny voice for G. (S)

She is a wonderful piano player. (CR)

She's my buddy. (Said by K in G voice)

She is outgoing and friendly. (KC)

She's always so happy and wants to do well in life. (L)
