Family Vacation

We just got back from a very fun trip to Arizona. Hugh had to go down to Tempe for work so we stayed at my brother Jason's house in Tucson. We were there for ten days and we had a lot of fun! We stopped at the Grand Canyon, went to watch Jensen and Garrett play soccor, went swimming in their pool, went to the zoo, ate a ton of food (I gained seven pounds), and did a lot of other fun things. Arizona is way hot! It was so nice. We were in climate shock coming home to freezing temperatures. It was a great trip, except for the car ride there and back. The girls didn't think that was fun at all. There was a lot of crying, shouting, pooping, and puking going on. I don't think we will be spending that much time in the car again any time soon! The vacation was a blast! Something that we will always remember! Thanks Jason and Judy for letting us come!

2 Months!

My baby is two months old! She is getting so big. She is such a sweet baby, and I love it because I am her favorite person. She is always giving us big smiles especially in the mornings when she wakes up. I took her to the doctor today and she is tipping the scale at 13.6 pounds. She is a chunk! I love it!

Look at those cheeks!

This was taken after she had her shots. I would be crying too! Poor Stella!

My Little Girl Started Kindergarten

Shayli started kindergarten today and yes, I bawled like a baby. I thought I would cry a little bit, but no, I sobbed. Shayli didn't even shed a tear. She got right on the bus and made it to her classroom fine. She looked a little bit nervous, but she did great. I was really amazed at how well she did. I can't believe my baby started school. She is growing up. We are so proud of her. Time goes by so fast! We love our kindergartener!

Teri Turned 3!!!

My baby Teri turned three years old yesterday. She loved having her own special day. Toni came over and helped me make her cake. In this picture she was trying out the batter. She said it was "BELICIOUS"!

Teri with her cute cake! All she wanted for her birthday was Tinkerbell stuff. We had a party for her and lots of family was able to come and celebrate with us! Thanks to everyone for coming, she had a blast!

Teri, Shayli, Royce, and Blair after we were done making the cake. We had a fun day! We love our little Teri and are so glad she is a part of our family. She loves to give hugs and kisses. She is so fun. WE LOVE YOU TER!

Stella's Blessing

Hugh blessed Stella on Sunday, August 2. It was a special day. We had a lot of family come and support us. We had a luncheon after the meeting that was really good. We had a great day spending time with family and eating yummy food. Thanks to everyone for sharing Stella's special day with us.

Stella looked so beautiful. Grandma Kris bought her dress for her, and her Aunt Amy made her a pretty bracelet to wear. Grandma Staiger gave the blanket. I loved it!

Our first family campout of the summer

We went camping last weekend with my dad, Kris, Toni, Justin and their kids, and Jim and his kids. It was a lot of fun but a lot of work! Stella had some major problems. I don't know why, but almost every time I take her diaper off she pees and poops all over everywhere. By the last night of the trip, she was down to one blanket and one onesie. There was pee and poop everywhere! Definently I campout I will remember. Shayli and Teri had a blast and it was nice to get away and relax with family!

This is our first family picture as a family of five! This picture of us was taken just after I had Stella so we all look a little rough. Stella was born on June 23rd, she weighed 8lbs. 3oz. and was 19in. long. Having all girls is full of bows, drama, and lots of hair does but we love it!

New baby Stella.

We love our little family!
