1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember--it can be funny, weird, awkward, random, etc.!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

I hope you'll all play!! :)

For Sage's 6th birthday she got a butterfly kit. Here's a picture I took this morning. On the 2 pieces of paper, there are 9 cocoons (2 empty)... 2 butterflies hatched this morning!! So far they're just walking around and flapping their wings (to dry them) a little bit. :)

1 Month Old!!

I can't believe Grace is already 1 month old!
(That headband she's wearing is still too big... wow!)
Before we know it she'll be 1 year old!

I love you, Gracie :)


We had a scare last week when Dave woke up in excruciating pain Wednesday morning. We were all packed and ready to go to Utah for a little vacation... but Dave had to rush off to the ER. He ended up staying all day and being admitted to the hospital later that evening. After 2 days of pain, and fasting, the doctors took him into surgery and removed his gallbladder. We learned first hand why so many people we know say to never go to this particular hospital... too bad we had to learn the hard way! The surgery went well and now Dave is at home and doing so much better! This is a picture of Dave the day he got to come home from the hospital (Saturday).

Thanks to all of our family and friends who helped us through this hard time!
PS... try not to ever have your husband stay in the hospital for 4 days and have surgery while you're still recovering from childbirth and trying to take care of a newborn and 2 rascal kids!! Thank goodness for friends and family!! :)

PSS needless to say, our trip to Utah had to be canceled


We recently had, Briea, Sage and Alex's cousin come over for a few days. Here they are at the bowling alley!

3 weeks old!


Alex got this little bunny, Jacksy, from the library summer reading program. It's so cute seeing how much he loves the bunny. He came up with the name, Jacksy, himself. :)
