Happy New Year!

Really 2011? I cannot believe that 2011 is here! That means this year we will have a 6, 4 and 2 year old! I am actually really excited for 2011 because I can feel some changes coming on.

Here is are family goals for the year:
-Family Home Evening every Monday
-Family Scriptures every night
-Family prayer every night
-Being more organized
-Eating healthier
-Less TV
-More active
-Spend less and save more
-Get out every other Saturday and do something fun as a family

These are the things that I hope we accomplish but may require a lot of prayer!:
-Leanna take the CPA exam and pass!
-Move to Oregon

Happy New Year

Wishing you a Happy New Year! I love New Years because it is a time to set new goals. On that note I want to be better about blogging. It has been since 4th of July that I posted anything and so much has happened since then. We also bought a new camera for Christmas so we have been taking a lot of great pictures that I am excited to share. I hope everybody has a great year, I am excited for 2010!

4th of July

We had such a great 4th of July weekend. It started Friday night with great friends at a BBQ. The girls had so much fun swimming and eating. We then had a BBQ with family and neighbors at our house with again yummy all american food and fireworks. The girls had a great time watching fireworks. The bottom picture I love because Hanna is giving Dad the thumbs up on his firework display. I am so grateful to live in America and have the freedoms that we have. I could not have asked for a better way to spend 4th of July!

Times like these

This summer has been a lot of fun so far but it has been challenging for me. I want to have a fun summer for the girls but being pregnant really makes simple things difficult like walking from the car with 2 kids and a bag full of stuff to the pool. After the short walk and getting settled I am ready to go home! Not to mention the 90 degree heat! I really should not complain because I am so grateful of how well this pregnancy has gone and that I can still get around and do fun things with the girls. The girls love the water park and Hanna finally will go under water! That is huge for her because a couple of years ago one little drop got on her face and she would have a breakdown. Hanna is doing better on her bike but fell over while on a bike ride with dad and did not want to ride her bike for while. So we got her a helmet and knee pads which has helped a little but she is still a little scared to go on bike rides. Ava is starting to talk a lot more, well I can understand her at least. They finally started playing together without fighting for at least half hour increments which is a break through. They still fight but at least I can clean or cook now without constantly breaking up fights. I love the pic of them in the hammock because they thought it was so much fun and were not fighting! Little moments like these make all the bickering worth it!

It has been a while......again! So here is a picture of Hanna's first date. Hanna and Craig had a date night, they went out for pizza and then went to a dance at our church. She was very excited to have time alone with Daddy. The other picture is of Ava's pig tails. I was so excited to finally be able to put her hair in pig tails and she actually left them in most of the day. She is growing too fast!

It has been a long time!





So again I have been a slacker and not updating our blog like I should. Well here are some pics from our mini vacation at the beach in Oregon. We stayed at a cute little place in Seaside on the beach. It was weird not having anything to do and basically relaxing for 2 days straight. The girls stayed with Craig's parents and had a blast. Of course Hanna did not want to come home and cried most of the way home....6 hours! We are doing great just getting excited for baby #3!
