Here is some of what we have been up to the last few months!

Weekends are always filled with lots of exciting things to do :) John likes to keep us busy and there is always something to do here so...

Town Square for some shopping &
Ethel M's chocolate factory for a treat!

Grandma helped Lexi make this cute heart cake. We love when Kami and Grandma come visit. The kids look forward to seeing them more than anything!
Well baby #3 is on her way. April is coming so fast and we are very excited for another little GIRL!!!

Lexi made her 1st meat and cheese tray for thanksgiving. She did everything by herself. She even let Brody help but it only took him one minuite to switch to a sharper knife and cut his little finger. It was really fun to have Grandma and Grandpa come share Thanksgiving at our house :)

OH MAN!!! Can you imagine what trouble these 2 little girls will get into in a few short years. They are so funny and share a special bond. Last time Abrie came to visit her and Lexi were seriously arguing about who was more spoiled. It ended with Lexi asking Abrie what spoiled even means. I laughed soooo hard. They are so fun!!!

I have to say that I think my kids are pretty cute. Looking at Brody's little face just makes me smile. We love them and have so much fun as a family.

Grammy J came to visit so we went to St. George and met up with some of the Jacobs. It was great. We played cards and had some good laughs. Isn't she the cutest Grammy !?!

It is really crazy how fast babies grow!
It blows me away that our little Lexi is starting to read and that she will soon be
in kindergarten. I have so many mixed exciting and so sad.
We love her and love how much her little personality adds to our family.
How Sweet is this!?

Kami Lexi Grandma
Grandma painted Lexi's fingers and toes while I did her hair.
We had a great little spa happening in the kitchen until Lexi burned her
little hand on the flat iron. It is true...Beauty is Pain!

We were so proud of Lexi she knew all the words to the songs and
did the actions perfectly. She even managed to smile...which can be hard
for her sometimes :) She loved singing! Lucky for us, she was in the front row.

John and I teared up a few times but we made it through the program.
The miracle song is the one that gets me every time she sings it!
"Oh what a miracle, every little part of me
I'm so special , so very special"

Uncle Colten was also impressed with her performance!
Brody is attacking Lexi...I was going to crop this picture but I left him in
because anyone who knows Brody would know exactly what is happening here.
I bet you can even hear the little growling noise that he does.

Age 4 is such a fun age. I wish I could freeze time and just enjoy Lexi more.
Lexi is so excited to learn and so funny. I love waking up in the morning and
hearing her tell me about her dreams. I love the excitement in her face when
she learns something new and is proud of herself. The other day she told me she felt the
Holy Ghost. It is so fun to see her drawings and how she sees the world. Sometimes it is scary how much she is like me! Luckily she has some of her Dad mixed in too.

Lexi has lots of people who love her very much!
Grandma, Grandpa, Colten, and Kami were able to come to graduation.
Dan, Sue, Katie, Kelly, and Colleen were also able to come but they left before the photo shoot.

Backstage excitement! You can't see in this picture but her toenails
are bright accent her cap and gown.
She is so cute!

I can't possible say enough about how great Miss Angela is. She cared about Lexi and made her pre school experience the best that it could be. When Lexi started Creative Kids she had never been away from me so it was hard for her to understand why I wasn't always with her. We are so lucky to have Angela and I thank her for loving her, and for teaching her to always do her best and that her best is good enough. We love you!

I can't believe our babies are getting so big :)
I am going to register Lexi for Kinder today and I am sad and excited for her.
She started reading and it is so cute and crazy!
If i were to describe BRODY in two words it would be...
We definately love him. He keeps us running!

We feel so lucky to be able to have kids! It is a dream come true for me...somedays a bad dream, but still a dream :) They are our world and we love them.

Trish is finally HOME!

We went to Boise for Valentines Day to visit Trish. It was amazing to see her progress. It was fun to see her personality showing through. She loves her grandkids. She has come a long way and is still moving forward. She is so happy to be home!

Jeff is such a great man. He is taking great care of his sweetheart. The kids loved going to see them. Trish is very worried about her hair growing back and she wants it light again, but i think she looks cute.

Trish walks a lot, actually all of the time. Even if she is standing in one place she is moving her feet. The kids loved that because they are the same way : )

While we were in Boise we were able to spend time with Ross and Judy who were there visiting Jim, Leslie, and Tralee. It was an adventure as usual...John's Dad always makes things exciting. This is Jim, Ross, and John ice skating on Lake Lowell.

Lexi Jo and Brody had so much fun with Grandpa Ross and Grandma Judy.

This picture was taken before the police escorted them off of the ice.

Catching up... FInally!

The past few months have been kind of crazy. So here is a quick update on what we have been doing. We spent Christmas in Salt Lake with Trish in the was a really neat experience. We went to the Christmas lights at the temple with Marti Jo, Matt, Joni, Cammi, Adrienne and coby. We were able to spend a snowy night with Brent and Ashley and it was fun to get to know them. A big thanks to Jeff and Tamara for all their love and support. Marti Jo and Matt were life savers...they practically took care of our kids the entire month of December. We love you guys! We had a couple snow days in St. George so we went sledding with our friends...It was great. I almost broke my moms neck...sorry mom! We have realized that we have the best family and friends that anyone could ask for...this includes our ward!
