Today is Ahlie's birthday. I can't believe my baby girl is 3 already. She started her day out by having her favorite breakfast chocolate donuts. Then for lunch we went to McDonalds. We will celebrate with family later and open presents and have cake, then on Saturday she will have a party with her friends. So I will post pics this weekend.

Ashlie we love you very much and are so lucky to have you in our family. You are our little princess. Happy Birthday sweetie.
Ok, I just had to post these pictures of my 2 handsome boys. It's getting so fun, because finally they are starting to accept brandon as a sibling. They still shut the door on him sometimes, but for the most part they are starting to play with him. Last night Matthew was being really silly and brandon was busting up, and then trying to copy Matthew. Matthew turned to me and said "mom I'm such a good big brother" with the biggest smile on his face. It makes me so happy to see how much brandon loves his brother and sister.
So the other night, Jeff and I were on our way to the temple. Ashlie was up stairs with Jeff, and he told her we were going to the temple. She came up to him and said "Daddy I want to be a princess," So Jeff told her to go and get one of her dresses. And she said" No a princess like mommy, so I can get married. The kids call me a princess when they see my wedding picture on the wall. So Jeff proceeded to explain to her that one day she will get married, but not today. She didn't quite understand, and was crying and throwing a tantrum that she could not come to the temple and get married. She was very distrat. It was very cute, and about broke my heart, when she came down in her cute little dress and wanted to go.
Ok, So I am a very big slacker along with everyone else, So I don't feel to bad. Here are some pictures of our Christmas. I was filled with fun and excitement. This year we went to Jeff's parents and his Brother and family came from Texas. So we had 16 people in the house for a week and a half. It was so fun to have everyone there, and there was never a dull moment. We had fun making ginger bread houses, sledding, bowling, and hour and hours of playing. Christmas morning was so fun, but VERY crazy. It was such a joy to have everyone around and for the cousins to get to play. Christmas eve we had a wonderful traditional BBQ and the Sister Missionaries came over to join the craziness. We read the christmas story and the kids had fun acting. I got to play a Sheep, what great fun. The missionaries brought a great spirit into the house and sang a wonderful song. Hope everyone had a great holiday and a great New Year.
Jeff and I were married on June 16th, 2001 in the Salt Lake City Temple. We met at BYU during Jeff's last year of undergrad. I am a busy mom of 5 wonderful children who are very busy themselves. M is 11, A is 10, B is 8, K is 6 and L is 18 months . They are all doing well. We enjoy camping, rock climbing, running, canyoneering, and our new found sport of family bowling. We hope to have a fun and eventful year.
