I'm back to blogging and I am totally ashamed I have stayed away for so long. I need to keep up on this so that I can look back and remember all of these awesome memories. So to recap the two years.... yes its been two years and a lot has changed since then so luckily when I stopped blogging, I picked up Instagram so I am using that to catch up. For starters.......... we had our 3rd baby boy Cash! He had a rough start being born 3 weeks early with the sucking reflex. That little reflex or lack thereof landed him in the NICU for a month. So he was being fed through a tube for a lot of the first month while we were trying to help him learn to eat so he could keep up a good and healthy weight. At the time, it felt like an eternity but now (2 years later) its a memory, one I never want to have again. I am happy to have this kid in my life, he definitely completes our family.

Congrats TY!

So.. Ty found out a couple months ago that he got into Podiatry school in Arizona. We were so excited for him........... we threw him a little foot party. Now I realize most of this post is of the Foot Cake we had made for him............. but did you see it? Its awesome and I can't believe how detailed it is.  Shout out to Gourmet Cakes by Socorro!! I am convinced after the wedding cakes she did for our family, then this weird request for a podiatry cake, she can do anything! 

We made up a game for Ty to guess which words did not fit into the podiatry world. He lost. :) 

Not sure what face this is Jess is making, but I had to put it in here because it reminds me of the Flynn Rider face. "Hi, How ya doin." Right?? 

Awesome right??????? It was gross but fit the theme of our party perfect! Congrats Ty, we'll miss you.

I can't believe I forgot to post this..............

I know this is way late, but for journals sake I need to make sure I post this. These are all of my babies in order.

We are so excited to have another baby boy. I get a little teary looking back at the hospital pictures of the other boys. Not to get sappy, but they are my greatest blessings and I am so grateful to have them. Seems like yesterday, and now in April we will have another one

October 2011

I figured I better blog October since we are almost back there again. Seriously slacking! Anyway Linds turned 22.......... which was exciting........... because its her birthday.

We went to the pumpkin patch with my cousin Kari who was visiting. We went on the hayride, picked out a pumpkin, and hung out with the pigs. Surprisingly, Canyon dove right in there with the pigs and thought it was hilarious to pick up their back legs and watch them scramble. It was pretty funny.

Yep my little Mr. Incredibles. I MADE their costumes this year. Yep you heard me right............. Ok well my mom made them, but I helped and it was my idea. I thought they turned out pretty cute.

Crew HATED the mask. Here Crew is flying off the couch to get away.

Happy 30th Jess!

For Jesse's big 3-0 birthday, Linds came up with the idea to surprise Jess with a Nerf War. Everyone had guns and ammo, we moved furniture around, we had rules, and game on. Yes, I know it seems a little immature but that is just because you were not there. Seriously FUN! 
Happy Birthday Jess, hope it was a memorable one!

There is a Christmas tree lot that has this truck out in front of it. We had to pull over and get a picture with the boys. They love Mater!

Shop with a Cop 2011

This year D and I had the opportunity to go do Shop with a Cop in Spanish Fork. This is a program that helps kids who may be less fortunate have a little for Christmas. Kmart donates a $110 gift card and they get to.............. well shop with a cop. All the officers who want to be involved in our county go and they assign each officer a kid. I got to tag a long with D and it was crazy. The whole thing started at 6 in the morning so we were up at 4, met the other guys at 5ish and all went down together. There were so many police cars out. Once all the officers have there child, they let them sit in front of police car and play with lights and sirens. Crazy loud and bright. There were so many cars it was crazy. We drove through a light festival, then to a local school for breakfast, and then to Kmart to spend their money. 

Creepy Santa. Not sure why they would scare the children like that but he was definitely not the cute grandpa type you would imagine. D and the other guys from Pleasant Grove couldn't stop laughing. They were horrible.

Andy with his daughter and the little girl that shopped with them.

This is our kid, Mark. He was pretty quiet.

All the officers waiting to be assigned a little person.

We went to a local school and they fed us breakfast. 

Pure chaos at the checkout. 

My lame attempt to get all the police cars on the way to the light festival with lights and sirens going. It was pretty cool to see how many participated.  Then we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast with the PG officers.

2011- Our Little Soccer Man

Canyon played soccer this year for the first time. I think he liked it for the most part. He was really confident in his running ability and it was so fun to watch him watch himself. He wasn't the best goalie. He kind of would watch the ball roll in the goal and didn't grasp the concept that when you are goalie you CAN touch the ball. :) He was fast though and I think maybe a couple more years he will be leading the pack. All in all, I think he liked being part of a team and loved the attention when everyone would come watch.

St.George 2011

The Cleggs took us on a family trip down to St. George this summer and it was great. We did a little walking in the red rocks, pictures, Fiesta Fun Center, and of course Tuachan's The Little Mermaid. It was so fun to be with the whole family and let the cousins play around.
