Tis the Season for babies!

It must be BABY SEASON!
last Friday and Saturday I had the opportunity to go and spend time with these TWO brand new babies!

Their names are Jaxon and Addylin and they are so precious! They were born on November 8th. These TWO beautiful little babies were brought to this earth by my cousin Amber. She had to endure a lot of hard trials to get them here (six weeks of staying at the hospital on bed rest), but they are here now and are truly a blessings from our Heavenly Father. We call them the miracle babies :) Take a look at these cuties!

We couldn't get enough of them!

I'm in LOVE...and I need to have one of these of my own soon :) Amber is Lucky this little girl didn't end up going home in my purse (She would have fit too!)

Little Baby Jaxon...SO LITTLE :)

Brooke and Addylin :) She wasn't waking up for anything!

Savanna Has been such a great big sister

Amy's Baby Shower

So I'm a little late...We through a baby shower for Amy on November 6th and it was so much fun! We had it at Kelli's new house and invited lots of people. It sure was fun to see everyone and of course to see Amy and her cute belly. I was so excited all week to give her my gift. I got Cohen two little outfits and can I just say for the record...There are cute little boy clothes! Go to Old Navy and you'll have a hard time getting out of there with at least a bazillion cute items. My favorite was the brown little loafers Cohen got from his aunt Randi :) Here are a few pictures...I took a lot, but this up loader is sooo slow.

Diaper Cake from Randee Perkins

Doesn't she look adorable! Cutest Prego Lady I've ever seen! :)

We did a candy buffet for the shower favors...all the guests were able to fill these cute little bottles up with a candy fo their choice...Lots of work, but so much fun and CUTE!

I love these girls! I have So many great memories with them! I can't believe we are old enough to have babies :)


Baby Cohen was born on November 22nd at 1:51pm. He weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces and it soooo cute! I can't wait to hold him and give him lots of kisses!

Happy 51st Birthday Dad!

Happy 51st Birthday Dad!
Thanks for always being so awesome
We love you and can't wait to celebrate many more birthdays to come!


First of all…I would like to apologize for being absent for the past three months. I told you all when school started, John and I would have no free time…which is why I have literally not blogged in months. I have felt like such a slacker lately and figured it was probably time to give everyone an update, or at least those who actually follow our blog :) Life has been insane…and you would think with school coming to an end life would slow down just a bit…but that is certainly not the case. I can’t complain though :) This is my most favorite time of the year. I absolutely love how much time we get to spend with our families. The entire Thanksgiving and Christmas Season makes me so happy! I look forward to this time all year long and really wish it could last longer. We put up our Christmas tree last week…and have only lost two ornaments from Charlie. I have decided to move them farther up the tree in hopes that we won’t lose anymore ha ha. This will be Charlie’s first Christmas…and though he isn’t a human, we like to think he is like a child. Pretty much, if we gave him a box and a piece of tissue paper, he would be happy.

We have a rather busy schedule this Christmas season. Just to name a few things we have going on…

*We are going to Disneyland- Can’t wait!

* Festival of Trees- This is a tradition every Christmas season!

* John’s little cousin Seth is getting baptized. I can’t believe he is 8 yrs. old already!

* Savior of the World performance (we will be seeing this twice, once with my family and once with John’s Family)

*Ryan Shupe Christmas Concert!

* My niece’s Christmas Dance Performance! She is so dang cute and the BEST dancer I have ever seen!

* and most importantly...MY MOM'S Birthday (oh and Benson's)

These are just to name a few of the things we have going on. There is so much that I have to keep them on my calendar or else I will probably forget. We are also VERY excited to talk to Josh on Christmas. He has been doing great on his mission in Russia. It’s crazy to think he has already been out for 10 months! Before we know it, he will be home :)

Something else exciting coming up is one of my best friends, Amy is going to be having her little boy, Cohen :) We are so excited for her! Her baby shower was so much fun and of course it’s always nice to see everyone.

Lets hope I can keep this blog updated a little better!
