Okay, so this is a first time for me. I NEVER like getting pictures taken when I am pregnant...... I don't know why with this one, maybe the thought that it might be my last, or that I just need to get over being fat and enjoy it! So we usually get our family pictures taken in the fall, and so I thought I would get over my issues and have my good friend take them for us. She did a great job! I don't love looking at my swollen face, but I am happy we decided to do it. They turned out fabulous! I don't have copies yet, but go to her blog if you want to view! Tasha is in the Denver area and she is great, if anyone else is looking for someone!

Moving right along

Here I am, about 6 1/2 months along. I already posted this on facebook, and I am not really sure people check my blog all that much anymore! But here ya go! I am feeling pretty good. Going a little crazy ( my husband can attest to that) trying to get the house in order before baby. I have repainted about 1/2 of our house in the last month. The last wall I did ( the one in the picture) ended in me falling off the top of the ladder! Thankfully I am okay, just bumps and bruises, and a very broken ladder. The kids are getting way excited for our new baby boy to come, and have many suggestions for names. We have had Chad Dillon Cooper, Flower, and many more suggestions I can't think of at the moment. No names have hit the mark with Daniel and I yet though, so more suggestions are welcome! I am looking forward to a fast holiday season, so we can meet this new little one!

There have been a lot of other things going on since this trip that I have yet to post, but I have these pictures handy so here you go! AnnaBelle and I just got back from visiting my grandparents in Stanton Kentucky! My sister and her husband and little girl came with us as well, and we all had a great time! Here are some of our pictures from the trip!

Susan and I on top of the Natural Bridge. It is a very beautiful place to visit.
Anna and I
AnnaBelle riding the chair lift up to the bridge, very exciting!

These two girls are only a day apart in age, and we have such a fun time with them!
Taking pictures before church with my grandparents.

This is a picture of the girls with the Great Great Aunt and Uncle!

This is a picture of the girls right before we got on the plane, they were so excited!

My 100th post!

I just figured out that this will be my 100th post! If I was like all the other on top of it bloggers maybe I would have some sort of prize or drawing, but we all know I am not! So consider your prize as being special enough to read my blog!:)

Here are some summer pictures of the kiddos and what they have been up to! These first ones are of Anna and her cute little friend Avery. The looked so cute in their little suits sliding on the slip and slide. Avery knew how to plop right down on her belly and slide the whole way, Anna still has some learning to do!

For the 4th, or 3rd I guess we went to Greeley. Daniel ran a race in the morning, and came in 2nd in his age group and 10th overall. He even got a nice little metal! Then we all went and watched the Greeley Parade, which the kids somewhat enjoyed. This first picture is of some steer or oxen(not sure the correct term) just walking down the street in the parade. As soon as Anna saw these she hopped right up and sat on my lap. She may be the smart one of the bunch. The boys thought it was pretty cool though.

The cute kiddos, AnnaBelle, Sebastian, David, and Aiden

David is doing T-Ball this summer, and we think he likes it okay. He told me the other night that he likes practices more than the games because they are funner. Oh well, we tried right?

David and his buddy Zach
Thanks all for reading! Please feel free to leave a comment on my 100th post, maybe I can make it my most commented post!

New member of the family!

I have a few new posts, so keep reading on down after this post! So we went to Montana and came home with a new member of the family! Her name is Ella, and she is so sweet! Those of you who know Daniel, you are thinking did I hit him over the head and knock him out on the way home? Not quite, but Daniel was outnumbered on this one! I have been wanting a dog for 10 years! A family from our old ward in Helena needed to find her a new home and asked if we would like to have her, and I said heck yea! She is the best family dog ever! The kids are in love with her and so am I. I think Daniel is secretly getting attatched to her as well, but we won't tell him that! Thank you Fife family! We promise to give her all the love in the world!

Montana, here we come!

Off we go to Montana! We came home from Las Vegas, I had time to unpack, do laundry, clean house, and then had to pack right up again and hop in the car. This time we had Daniel with us though so that was nice to go as a whole family! Daniel really wanted to go do the Governors Cup race in Helena, so we all signed up for a race!

Since Daniel was there, his old co-workers from Blue Cross (that is one of the major sponsors of the race) volunteered him to do the warm up exercises with them. We all know how fun he can be at this, it was pretty fun to watch!

Here is AnnaBelle trying to do the warm ups as well!
I signed up to do the 5K, and I did alright. I am new at this whole running thing, and DON'T have a runners body or stamina! So I was proud of myself for finishing, I won't give out my time, but just know that I wasn't LAST!
The kids getting ready to do the Mile Fun Run.
I was just at the finish line, so I just saw David running so hard at the end, just to find out later from Daniel that he carried him most of the way! Little Stinker!

We stayed with our friends the Holmans, and had a great time! They were so good to us, and especially the kids! AnnaBelle just loved having all the attention from Riley and Sammy!
David got to try out the little four wheeler while we were there and he loved it!

We had a great trip! The weather was beautiful for the last couple of days we were there! It was good to see all of our friends that we made while we lived there and we sure miss everyone! Maybe someday we will be back in Montana to stay!

Las Vegas, Again......!

The day school got out, I loaded up the kids and I and we headed off to Vegas to see my sister and her family! We had a great time, and got to stay in my brothers house. This first picture pretty much explains our trip!

The girls had such a long day of swimming and play, they were exhausted! They had so much fun together as always!
While we were there, Sebs had his birthday. So we decided to throw him a pool party! Susan's in-laws all came with their families and a couple of friends, and we had a full out bash! Sebs was one happy 9 year old!

I don't think Jason has ever had so many people swimming in his pool! We got a lot of use out of it that is for sure!!
Here is the cake. Bryce, Susan, and I stayed up very late the night before coming up with this masterpiece! We had a few set backs while making it, but all in all I think it turned out pretty dang good. I would never show this to the Cake Boss, but for three amateurs, I think it is okay! Sebs loved it, and that is what counts the most!

We had a great time visiting Susan as always, and plan to go back the end of July to see Jason and family!
