We have finally updated the blog. Sorry it has taken us forever to do so. It has been a little crazy around the house with our little new addition. We love having her here though, but we are a little more busy. Oh sorry also about the block on all of your comments. I misunderstood the computer when we put the block on. Yeah computers are confusing to me, but took the block off hopefully and now you are free to leave any comments. Let us know if it works.
We have a little curly sue on our hands. This Payson at 6 weeks. She is so fun. Her hair curls right up after the bath, we will have to see what it does when it grows out.

The Fourth of July was really fun. Just low key, the way we like it. We went to a parade and then a BBQ and later watched the fireworks. It was a great day. Here I am just explaining to Doug how to work the camer. Well, he figured it out.

It has been a little warm lately here. We took Alli out to play in the sprinklers for the first time. She loved it. Even though she was shivering most of the time she always wanted someone to run her through the water.

Don't you just love matching outfits. This was the girl's Father's Day present. Bret won't admit it but I think he likes little cutsie things like this. We love you daddy.

We loved having both Grandmas come and stay with us when Payson was born. They were such a big help and we are so grateful for all of their help. We couldn't have done it without them.

I love to put headbands in Payson's hair. They are just cute, anyway, sometimes they are too big and don't stay on just right. Often times we find her like this. She is our little warrior. I guess she likes to use them for a sleeping mask.

Happy Easter

We wanted to do an Easter Egg Hunt with Alli this year. We were planning on doing one outside with all the wards that go to our church, but it turned out to be a little rainy. So we took matter into our own hands and hid some eggs just in the front room so Alli could look for them. We thought that she would really like it. She refused at first and so Daddy got a brought idea on how to get her to participate. One we got her into the front room, I think she thought it was clean up time, but when she saw there was candy in the eggs it made up for everything. Now she will be experienced for next year.

Alli just loves to look out the window and see the animals. Really the only animals that we see around here are cats, dogs, and birds, but whenever she sees them she goes just crazy. The animals usually runaway after her shrill screams, but it is sure fun to watch. She will be 2 in May. She has started the whole fit throwing thing, but she is such a joy she really makes us laugh.

As you can probably tell by the Vegas pictures that I have myself a little belly. Not it is not a tumor or anything. We are actually having another baby for you that don't know. Anyway, I am almost 7 months along, so we have the tough part yet to come, but we are so excited to have another girl around. Good luck to me on hair thing and girly things Right?
I have decided that I am not so current on my blog so sorry about the updates on our family anyway, but he had the chance to go on vacation around Valentine's Day. Bret had a conference for school so we took the chance to get away. I had a friend join us there and my parents also came to bask in the fun. We were ready to come home after the week was over. We had had enough of Vegas but it was really fun to go see all the sites and the interesting people there. Here are in front of the Blin-bling horse so I call it. It was in the Bellagio. The other pictures are after the auqarium in Mandalay Bay, and in front of the famous picture sign. We sure had fun.
