Will got in the tub with bubbles and stuck his face in the water and got some soap on his eyes and says are my eyes the same as they were?

Will-I am going to be John. Me-where did you get John from. Will-my imagination. Will-When we have a little brother his name will be Micheal and a sister named Wendy. Me- All people from Peter Pan. Will- I like Peter Pan.

I know I need to post pictures of my other children, but I can't resist:) I think she is so freakin cute and I can't get enough of her chubby face! Her yawns are my favorite thing in the whole world. My other kids smother her with their love ha ha Halle is always right in her face in fact she starts to fuss when she hears them coming probably because she knows they are going to attack her ha, but I'm sure she will appreciate it soon enough! My mom got her that cute hat and of course I was trying it on her the second we got it. Halle is in preschool and loving it. She is learning so much and doesn't seem to mind being away from me. She asks if she can go everyday. Will is doing good in first grade and soccer. Here is a picture of him and some of the ladies on his team next to their team flag.

Will lost his first tooth this last week and it was so fun to have the tooth fairy come visit he was thrilled since most of his class last year had lost a tooth and he was said he hadn't.
We went up to Mt. Charleston with some friends this last week. It was really nice because it reminded me of Utah:) It was all pine trees and reminded me of the mountains! And it was only like 75 degrees up there. It was a lot of fun!

Yesterday was Will's first soccer game of the season. He did a great job:) It was really hot so by the end he was beat!

recent pictures...

such a sweetie at 6 weeks sucking that thumb:)

Will started first grade and it went wonderful. He is loving it, but comes very tired everyday:) Halle also started preschool. She has been begging to take preschool for a few years so she was so excited for that day to come. I was trying to just walk her in and she kept telling me to leave ha ha...i have very different children one that at first didn't want me to leave and one that can't wait to be rid of me:) Hanna is growing like crazy, but is still such a great baby.

She is such a sweetheart! She is always so helpful with my kids and they love her so much! We were sad we are missing her birthday and wish we could come have birthday cake with her:( but I will be thinking of her today 500 miles away! She has always been such a great example to me of kindness and I always tell her to keep being nice to people even if they are mean to her because that's what will make her most happy and help to survive high school! So, Rach we love ya lots and miss you so much and hope you have the best day of your life today:)! Yesterday was my mom's birthday and my sister in law Wendy's birthday. So a weekend of fun for all!

Halle really does enjoy swimming despite the strange face she is pulling:)

This is how we have been spending our time this last week of summer:) It is so nice because I pool is literally right outside our front door so we head there everyday...Will is ready to head back to school, but I'm not sure if I am ready to send him:( It has been a long and stressful summer, but also lots of fun! I thought I would be ready for this summer to be over, but turns out I'm not (now that all the stressful events have passed:)...Halle is not going to know what to do when Will is gone all day and she has to play with me and Hanners:)!

Well we made it to Vegas. Life has been a little crazy this summer. With the bar, a baby, moving, and starting a job:) Fun times! We are enjoying Hanna so much. I feel like she has already gotten so big. She hardly ever cries and is such a wonderful 3rd child. We decided last minute (8/8/10) to bless and it worked out great cause we got to bless her with her cousin Kendall. She was so precious in her blessing dress. My dad was so great to help us move down here and even offered to drive our moving truck(which didn't have AC!!!) down for us. It is definitely hot down here right now. We pretty much just stay in our air conditioned house and then run to our air conditioned car or out to the pool. I wanted to post some recent pictures on here for everyone to see:)!
I took a couple of pictures of Hanna and I thought she was so cute in them I had to post them on here:)

We took the kids to a splash park right near our house today it was so fun!

Hanna is such a stretcher and Halle just happen to snatch a close up of it ha ha
Brooks took Will "REAL" golfing as he says. They were able to rent a cart and had a blast. It got a little hot towards the end:)

More to come...

Hanna is here!

We had her!! Miss Hanna graced us with her presence on July 23rd at 8:53 p.m.! She was 6 pounds 8 ounces and 21 inches long. She is my smallest baby yet. I want to document the events, but they may be too much for some of you so stop here if so:) I had been having contractions (just little ones) since my Dr. appointment on Thursday but they weren't painful. We both felt like it was going to happen soon but then they subsided. This was not an ideal time for us to have her because Brooks was heading out of town on Sunday morning to go to Nevada to take the bar exam so we were hoping she would come right after he got back, but of course things don't always work out as you plan. In this case they worked out better we were able to have her so he wouldn't have to worry about me oing into labor while he was gone. I woke up on Friday and they started up again and started to get more and more painful. By about 2:30 they were 5 minutes apart and really painful so we headed to the hospital. When I got there I was dilated to a 5 and they checked me in. About an hour later I got my epidural YAY! and life was wonderful from that point on ha ha:) I had to have antibiotics because I was strep b positive so they wouldn't break my water until those were finished. So, at 8:00 they broke my water and I was dilated all the way. Unfortunately my body wasn't having consistent contractions so it was a little tricky getting her out. Brooks and I were starting to get really nervous. At one point Brooks was so stressed he said he was going to be sick and had to sit down. I was about to lose it as well. Everytime I would push she would start to come out, but because I wasn't contracting she would head right back in as soon as I stopped pushing. Finally they decided to use the vacuum on her and he pulled so hard it popped off her head. After SEVERAL pushes she arrived and I couldn't be happier. I forgot how much I love newborns. I am seriously enjoying everything about being the mom of a newborn even being up at night. I am so lucky to be up at 4 in the morning with the cutest thing ever:) My kids didn't know what to think at first. Will wouldn't come by me because he was scared since I was all hooked up to several different things. He quickly warmed up and is loving her too. Halle jumped right up and started kissing and poking her as soon as she saw her. It was really hard to see Brooks leave on Sunday when we checked out of the hospital and head to Vegas! So sad! Luckily my mom was nice enough to come pick us up and drive us to Logan to help me take care of 3 children while he is gone because as I am learning that is a tricky task! We miss him and can't wait for him to come home:) In the meantime I am loving all of my children very much and enjoying the opportunity to be a mom:)

It has been too long I know...a few weeks ago we took a quick trip down to Vegas to find somewhere to live. The kids were so excited because we got to stay in a hotel with a pool and an arcade! Halle kept saying this hotel is a miracle. It was so cute. We took them swimming, played games, looked for houses(not so fun), M&M factory, Jungle restaurant. It was a very fun for everyone and tiring for me vacation. Will keeps saying he wants to go back to that hotel and stay again...
