Weddings, vacation's and a baby, oh my!!

Ok, so I am terrible about updating my blog, so I am going to have to catch up on this summer in small doses! What a summer we had! We were able to go to DisneyWorld in July! It was so much fun, the kids ask me everyday when we can go back! I will be posting about that trip over the next few days (hopefully!!). Then, we got home on August 2nd, and my brother Braden and his wife Mindy got married the next day, August 3rd! What a story that is! About 3 days before their wedding, Mindy was cutting hair, and her arm kept feeling numb, and she showed my mom this big bruise on her upper arm. My mom told her she needed to go to the doctor and get it checked out, and to make a long story short, she found out she had a blood clot in her upper arm, and if she had not gone to the ER, she would have died in the next few days, it was so scary! They had to operate on Monday, and they got married on Wednesday! At first, we thought we would have to cancel the wedding, but Mindy was determined to be married on that day, and sure enough, she did it! I don't know how much she remembers, but it was a beautiful wedding. We all love Mindy, and I am so glad my brother found someone so wonderful. She has been in and out of the hospital over the last month with surgeries, they actually had to remove her top rib right under her collarbone because it was pushing on her artery causing her blood to clot! Poor girl, she is finally coming home today, and we are all hoping her hospital stays are over. She thought she would be home a week ago, but her lung filled with blood, and they had to go in and drain it. And, also, on August 24th, my sister Jamie had a baby boy, Brenden. He is adorable, and I am so happy to be an Aunt again! My kids both started school this August, Carleigh is in first grade, she is learning French this year, and loves it, and Tyse is in preschool. Ok, now that I'm kind of caught up, here are some pictures of the wedding!Their lovely car after my brothers so lovingly decorated it!

Tyse's Birthday!

Tyse turned 4 on May 17th! I can't believe my little buddy is 4, time flies! He was super spoiled for his birthday. We had a party at my mom and dad's house. He is playing with the motorcycle they gave him in the above picture. He also got lots of summer clothes, which he really needed, footballs, basketballs, and grandma Perkins made him a quilt with Buzz Lightyear on it for his bed. He is in love with it! I love my little Tyse! He was able to go to school on his birthday, and he took chocolate chip cookies to share with his class, since they are his favorite. The teacher told me he sat at the snack table at ate cookie after cookie, and chocolate milk. What could be better than that! He is such a cute boy, and I am grateful he is in our family. He always makes us laugh, he is a funny little kid!

Opening his presents at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Very spoiled boy!
His cool dinosaur birthday cake! He was really excited about that!

This is a picture of Carleigh at Pineview. We went up there to see how high the water was, and the kids had a ball throwing rocks into the water. Every time I pull out the camera, she strikes a pose.

Disney on Ice, and other fun stuff!

So, I have been really horrible at updating this lately, so I am trying to catch up. Last week, Carleigh had a performance at her school, she is so cute, and loves to dance. She is in a cheer class, and really likes it. It is a lot of fun to watch her!
This is her at home before we left, she is so funny, she struck a pose as soon as I pulled out the camera!
Last month, we went to Disney on Ice. The kids had such a great time, they loved the whole thing. Tyse was sad when it was over because he wanted to give Mickey Mouse a hug! I told him that he will be able to hug him at Disney World, so now every day he asks me, When we going to Disney World, give Mickey a hug!
Buzz! Tyse's favorite!!

Me and the kids! Love these guys so much!
Well, what else have we bee up to lately? We went to Bear Lake over Easter with Tom's family. It was tons of fun, and the kids had a blast playing with their cousins. I am a spaz, and forgot the camera, so no fun pictures to post, dang it! We are also in the process of trying to buy a house, and we're hoping to do that by the end of the year, so that's something we are very excited about! We bought a new car, so I will have to post on that here soon! Well, thats about it! Nothing too exciting!

We're going to................


A few weeks ago, Tom and I were trying to decide where we should go for a vacation this year. We were thinking maybe San Diego, or Long Beach, but then we found a package for Orlando, and it wasn't a whole lot more. Orlando wasn't even a possibility, but the more we thought about it, we decided it would be a really great experience, and so we booked our flight! We are all so excited. We aren't going until the end of July, so there's still a while, and we're hoping that it goes by quickly.We're planning to go to Sea World, Disney World, and the beach. When we told the kids, it was so cute, they were dancing around saying Mickey mouse, princesses, Buzz and Woody!! We can't wait!!

Carleigh learning to read!

Christmas 2010 - Finally catching up!!

Yay for Christmas!!!!
Ok, so now that its February, I can finally catch up on my Christmas pictures! Yikes, I am so far behind. Oh well! Anyways, we had a great Christmas this year. The kids were a lot more aware of what was going on, and that made it a lot more fun than in years past. They were both so excited, and Carleigh finally sat on Santa's lap without crying, so that was improvement! They are both so smart, and sometimes I get sad that they are growing up so fast, in just a few short years they won't believe in Santa anymore, so I am trying to enjoy these moments as much a s possible. We are so grateful for the many blessings we had in 2010, and looking forward to an even better 2011!

They both got pillow pets, and that was the number 1 thing they both wanted, and Tyse got Chuck the rumblin' dump truck!

Ready for church the next day! (Sorry, pictures are not in order)
My handsome little guy!

Can you tell the kids decorated Santa's cookies all by themselves! And carrots for the reindeer, of course!
