Claire's first Thanksgiving!

We are having such a fun time with Claire and all of the holidays and it keeps just getting better!! Thanksgiving was so wonderful I loved having all of my family together! (I wish that we could have spent it with Jeff's mom and dad as well but Christmas is just around the corner and we will be there in about 4 weeks!!! yeah!!!) We had Thanksgiving at my brother's house this year, which was great. Here are some fun pics of us with Claire, who is 6 months old already. It's going by so fast!

Happy Halloween!!!

I love the holidays so much and with kids it is SO much better!!! Jeff carved a pumpkin and we dressed Claire up as a bunny, which lasted about 10 minutes! At least we got some cute pictures though...

Fun times!!

Claire and I went to Schnepf Farms a couple of weeks ago with Donna and her twins, Lexie and Wyatt, and Andrea and her daughter, Elly. It was so much fun, we walked in the pumpkin patch and rode the train. But, Claire is still so little that she got tired quickly so we left early. Next year Claire will be able to walk around the farm and that will be great!! Here are some pics of our fun day...

Picture update!

We got a new camera and I finally took the time to figure it all out so I could update the blog!! Claire went swimming for the first time at Brooklyn's house...she was great! I hope she won't be too afraid of the water when we take her to swimming lessons in a few months. The other pics are of us just enjoying her, I hope you do too!!

Audrey's 1st birthday!

Audrey is one year old!!! I am finally posting this (she turned one in late July). My little sweet niece had a fantastic birthday party thanks to her fabulous mom, Brooke! My sister-in-law put on such a great party for her and Jeff, Claire, and I had a great time! Here are some pictures of the fun day!

Summer Update

Well, we've had a great summer and now Jeff and I are both back at work. I'm so glad that we had a couple of months with Claire before we had to go back though. Jeff's mom, Colin, and niece Montana came to stay with us for a week, which was so much fun. They got to meet Claire and went to Payson and San Diego. We have also been hanging out with our friends Dana and Brooklyn and cousin Audrey and sister-in-law Brooke!! Sweet little Audrey turned one!!! (Her birthday pics are coming soon---SO CUTE!!)
I would also like to mention that I am quite jealous of all the stay-at-home mom's out there! I so wish I could do that but our wonderful student loans won't allow us to! ha!! At least I have my mom babysitting Claire so I do feel better about that, but I still wish I could be with her during the day. Thank you mom, I appreciate and love you so much for helping us with Claire!!!
