Guess what I got for Christmas....?

A new camera! My old one broke months ago and I finally got a new one so I can post more on this blog! YAY!All the kids got pillow pets. Lyndie got a unicorn, Mallory got a Panda, and Logan got a penguin.

Mallory had a great morning...
taking pictures of everybody with her new camera. She absolutely loved this gift.
This is Logan's new giant machine gun by nerf...this was a big hit and lots of fun to play with.
Sawyer thought everything was great. His favorite thing was the wrapping paper. They're so easy at this age.
This is Logan's Criss Cross Crash...very loud, but also very entertaining.

Neighborhood Christmas party

We moved into our new neighborhood about 2 months ago and we absolutely love it! We had our neighborhood Christmas party at the park and had two fire pits and roasted marshmallows, drank hot cocoa, and ate goodies that people had made. Unfortunately Jeremy had to stay home with Logan since he was sick and I decided to leave Sawyer with him also. The girls and I had a great time and even played in the snow in the dark and went sledding once also.

Snowy Day...

What do you do on a snowy day? You stay inside of course! The kids are out of school today and have gotten all of their stuffed animals out and are playing with them.

And Sawyer is just snuggling with Mom...(my favorite thing to do).

Brothers bonding...

Came in from watching Mallory ride her bike to the park today and found Logan and Sawyer hangin' out playing X-Box 360 together. Logan really loves his little brother...ALOT!

New House Update

Well, they have built our house much quicker than we thought they would which is a good thing, but stressful with a newborn at home. Packing has been slow, but hopefully with the older kids in school now I should find some time to do it. We are really excited to start this new chapter in our life and can't wait to move into this house.

Pictures of Sawyer

These are our first few precious moments with our new little bundle of joy, Sawyer Andrew English. It's hard to believe they start out so small.

Sawyer Andrew English

I guess I need to update my blog now that we have had our baby. Sawyer Andrew English was born on July 28, 2010 at 5:52 pm and weighed in at 7 lbs 8oz and was 19.5 inches long. My labor with him was long, as expected, but easy enough. He came out in one contraction with his face up. The doctor and nurses were totally impressed with my pushing skills. I attributed that to the fact that I had done it a few times before (ha ha ha).

He is adjusting to life very well and is eating like a champ. He does good at night so far sleeping for 5 hour stretches. This has helped me to feel human during the day instead of a zombie. My parents are here and my mom has been a tremendous help with my older 3 kids. She has worn them out everyday and kept them entertained.

I will post pictures soon...there are some on FB already if you want to sneak a peak.

New house—day 2

So......we're building a house!

Here are the floor plans for our new house. Construction has started this week, so we should be moving the first part of October. We are having the whole house finished, so it will be 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and we also extended the living space as well. It will also have the third car garage. We are excited to make this move and hope for it to be our last.

8 is GREAT!

I can't believe that my oldest is now 8 years old! We are so excited for her to be baptized at the end of this month and so is she. I always knew she would be a wonderful child since there were fireworks going off during my labor with her at the hospital. She is such a kind and loving girl and has never said a mean thing to any of her friends. We love her so much! Happy Birthday Mallory!

4th of July

I think this is the first 4th of July that I have had to bundle up in a blanket for. And that is saying something considering I am 8 months pregnant here. We had to do our fireworks in two different nights. The first night we did some little smoke bombs and sparklers and then sat down to do some of the bigger ones and Logan started screaming that his head hurt. It actually got kind of scary, so we decided to cancel that night and resume another day.

It got to the point that I drove to the instacare, but by the time I got there he had calmed down and was getting tired so I decided to head back home and see if he could sleep instead. He woke up fine the next day and we finished our fireworks the next night without any problem.

Logan's Kindergarten Program

Logan's class put on a little program for all the parents today. They song some songs and said some poems and then they all get a certificate and a medal for passing kindergarten. The second picture shows the first place Logan sat. He quickly got moved once the teacher saw that he next to his friend Owen. Logan is a social and crazy kid. We are so proud of him for making it through this year.

Something to aspire to...

I was going thru some old photos and came across this one. This is how skinny I used to be and plan to be again. It feels good to see that I can be skinny again. I guess you could say I am feeling fat right about now, so just picture me like this...:)

33 Weeks Pregnant

Feeling pretty large and in charge these days. Hopefully only 5 or 6 weeks to go.

29 Weeks and counting...

This pregnancy has not been an easy one to say the least, but I know it's all worth it in the end. I am hoping to only have about 10 weeks left at this point which is pretty realistic since I usually go early. I love feeling him move around in my belly. He has really picked up the pace lately and been exploring up into my ribs and my favorite...stretching out sideways as hard as he can. Can't wait to meet this little guy. Our family is so excited to have him come to our home. The kids talk to him all the time so I know they will be great with him...

Logan's 6th Birthday

This year for Logan's birthday we did a small family birthday party and then we took all the kids to Hollywood Connection and let them go on all the rides and they had a blast. I gave him the choice of having a friend party at the house or going to Hollywood Connection with the family and that's what he chose. It was so much easier for me and the kids all had an awesome time. Sometimes things just work out for everyone...:) Happy Birthday Logan! We love you and our family would not laugh as much without you.

Lyndie's Preschool Graduation

Lyndie made it through her first year of preschool. With a patient teacher it was not too bad for her. She is a little spit fire so a class full of boys was probably the safest route to go with her. Her teacher had little robes and hats for all the kids to wear and had food for them to eat as well. We watched a little video of the kids performing songs and little interviews of themselves and it was really cute. Good job Lyndie! We love you!

Our ride on the Heber Creeper

Jeremy's work took everyone on the Heber Creeper as part of their leadership conference and since we had never been we tagged along. Let's just say I am glad it was free. This kids had a fun time though and got to look out the windows and find all sorts of things to look at.

Lyndie's first shower...

This picture was way too cute not to post. Lyndie thought this was the funnest thing ever to take a shower and have a shower cap on...:)

25 weeks pregnant

3 more months to go. This is definitely the biggest I have ever been while pregnant. Hopefully it will go by quickly.

Logan's toothless grin

Missing my two front teeth. He loves looking in the mirror at his toothless grin. The first time he ate after losing both he said," it's kind of harder to eat with no teeth."

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Mallory announced to us that she thinks Edward is hot. I had to get her this shirt when I saw it after that. She was so excited when she got home from school because some 4th and 5th graders high-fived her at lunch for having such an awesome shirt.

Baby Pictures.....

This little guy must be shy because he wouldn't give us a good profile picture of his face. His face was buried into my back and he had his arms crossed in front of his face as well. We settled for a bum shot.

It's a...........

BOY! We had our ultrasound yesterday and got to find out the sex of the baby. I am so excited for it to be a boy. The baby was going in Logan's room anyway, so this works out perfect. He is much calmer than any of my other babies have been during the ultrasound so I am hoping that means I am getting a quiet sweet boy....(yeah, right).

Wishful Thinking....

This is just where I wish I was right now. I could really use a vacation...

What do we do all day while Jeremy's at work?

We play on his computer! The kids love to play with photo booth on Dad's computer. Hours of entertainment!
