Hello everyone. This has been a long time coming, but I finally found some time to give you some updates. Our Spring has been a very eventful one. On April 15 2011 (YES Tax day) we welcomed our sweet little boy Kyle. He was 8 pounds 2 ounces and 21 inches long. He has been the sweetest baby, and for sure our calmest. Ethan and David now love him to pieces but I think they had to warm up at first. Our Summer is going to be a very busy one. Not only do we have a new baby but Neil and I have new callings. He is the first counselor in the Elders Quorum and I am going to be the new choir director. I am currently taking my very last class!!! AHH I am so sad!! JUST KIDDING! Can you sense my sarcasim? Anyways in six more weeks I will be graduating and getting my Bachelor's degree in University Studies with a minor in English. I am very excited, but at the same time bumbed out becuase we probably won't be able to go to the actual ceremony. OH well at least I will get the piece of paper, that's the important part right? Ethan graduates Kindergarten this coming Friday June 10th. CRAZY!!! I am going to bawl my head off if I am not careful. This past Sunday Neil blessed Kyle in church and it was a beuatiful blessing for beautiful boy! We are staying active and having fun with our little family. A couple of weeks ago we went to Enchanted Forest which is a little theme park in South Salem. The boys really had fun and we did too. Here are some pictures and will post more pics and some video later.

It has been way to long, so for those of you who have been waiting, here you go. The last couple of months have been very busy for me. School and family has kept me totally occupied. Anyway last week we went to Utah for a week. It was fun and the boys enjoyed playing with their cousins. Neil's sister Laurisa got married and we had a great time attending. Here are some pictures of our Utah trip. It snowed about 10 inches the Monday we arrived to Utah. We also went to a The Treehouse in Ogden which is a children's museum. (Totally Loved it too)

Alright so I know it has been a while since my last post, but give me a break will ya, I had midterms to study for, plus moving into our new house!!! Which took quite a bit of time and energy. WE LOVE our new house and we are so grateful to finally have a home to call our own. (ok so technically it belongs to the bank, but you know what I mean). This October has been very fun and exciting for our family. Neil turned the big 28 and we celebrated by signing our papers for the house the next day. I have been learning bunches about the history of Africa from my class that I am taking. It has been a hard class for me just because I was totally ignorant coming into the class, so everything that I am learning is new to me, which is a good thing. Our house is awesome and it great to have so much more space. Well last night was Halloween and we took the boys to a ward trunk or treat. Ethan was dressed as Darth Vador, and he has been wearing his costume for like a week now. Anyhow when we got there at the church there were a bunch of kids playing on the grass. Ethan went over on the grass and as Neil and I were talking to someone Ethan starts crying. Neil went over there to try to figure out what was wrong. He said that some kid had come up to him and scared him. When Neil asked Ethan who did it, Ethan points to the kid dressed up as a storm trooper. Neil and I laughed so hard. Here was Ethan all week long pretending to be Darth Vador, and he gets scared by a storm trooper. David went as Superman. He was so excited and caught on to the idea of trick or treating really fast. When he got his candy put into his pumkin he looks down and smiles and starts clapping his hands. It was really fun. Ok here is another funny story that happened this morning. I was getting David ready and got him out of the tub and all dressed. David was ready to go when I was giving Ethan a bath. Well I left the bathroom for a second and David got back in the tub with Ethan clothes and all. Neil came in and yelled for me to come. I starting laughing so hard. Anyhow here are some pics.

Hey everyone! We have had a stressful, emotional, exciting couple of weeks. Several weeks ago, Neil and I start ed looking around at houses. We found a cute little neighborhood that we liked so we decided to check it out. It was a new development and there were two houses we were looking at, One was already built and the other was not. To make a long story short, we decided to put in an offer on the one already built, however it was more than we wanted to pay, so we just kept going back and forth and couldn't make up our minds! We got a counter offer on the house and we still didn't feel like we loved the house enough to stretch our budget so tight. We decided to reject the counter offer and get our earnest money back which I think was good decision. The next day we decided to look around some more and we actually used a different realtor the second time, because we were not to crazy about the girl that helped us before. We met our new realtor at a house and looked through it,we didn't like the house be we liked him so we gave him our email. That very night he sent us an email with a whole bunch of listings of houses in our price range with the things we wanted (way helpful). On Friday we met in the morning at a different house. We looked at three houses on Friday and we both really really liked the second one we walked through. We decided to put in an offer on the second house. Yesterday we got our counter offer and this morning we accepted their offer. So we are on the way to getting into this house. Hopefully the loan process with go smoothly and we can get into this house. We really like it and are excited about it. So for all you who are coming for Christmas, hopefully some of you can stay with us! Nothing is set in stone as yet so hopefully everything will be good to go!!!! YEAH I am so stoked!!! Neil and I feel extremely blessed and we feel that our prayers have been answered and we are really grateful. Here is a picture of the house.
