The man of my dreams...

I was looking through some pictures last night for a picture of my hubby for Addy's primary teacher.. I came upon this picture and it gave me butterflies...
This was from our family vacation to the beach a couple summers ago.  He hates it when I pull out the camera and tell him to pose.. :)

We just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary last month... it's been a wonderful (and very busy!) 8 years together.  We've bought 2 houses, changed jobs a few times, had 4 babies... and he's been wonderful through it all!
LOVE you honey!!

Back to school!!

The summer seemed to go by cRaZy fast.. before we knew it we were last minute shopping for school supplies.  The boys started at a new school this fall.  Addy started preschool with teacher Michelle (love her!).  Adjusting to the fall schedule was a bit tricky with 4 kids.. but it's great now that Madisyn is a bit older and isn't sleeping as much.  :)

First day for the boys.

First Grade

We moved!! (7 months ago...)

We listed our house in Kennewick and had a buyer THREE days later.  It was a crazy fast process (and a tough process while huge and pregnant!).  We found our new home and were able to close on it on schedule.  Since then we've done a lot of interior painting (the previous colors were "loud") and we plan to paint the exterior this spring (yay!!). 
We LOVE our new ward and all of the new friends we have made.  :)
Here are some pictures of our home...
 I took this picture when we went to look at the house (those are not our cars).. we're going to paint this spring... any color suggestions???

This is the kitchen- we're going to put in new countertops and a microwave over the oven (anyone up for trading our white oven for a black one??)

Our new sofas and one of the tables my dad built for us.

Our new backyard- it's 1/3 acre- perfect size for all of the kiddos stuff- can't wait to host BBQ's this summer!

Welcome to the world Madisyn!!

Our sweet baby girl, Madisyn Elizabeth, joined our family on July 1st (after a SUPER fast labor and delivery!).  She was 9lbs 3oz and 21.25 inches long (our biggest!).  She is a huge blessing and we are so grateful to have her as part of our eternal family. 

Madisyn's first picture.

Look at those cheeks!!  Don't you just want to kiss 'em?
I was so excited- I just gave birth without any pain meds- never felt better after having a baby!  So in love with my new baby girl!
