Sweet, little Dallin was born October 13 at 3:30. He was 8 lbs and 19 inches long. Labor went well, my water broke at 6:45 that morning while I was blow drying Jaye's hair. We took our time getting to the hospital because I wasn't having any contractions. Marilyn took the kids all day! She was such a huge help! The Dr. ended up giving me pitocin to get my contractions started, shortly after, Dallin was here with just a few pushes.
Ally and Conner constantly maul him. They just love him so much and that is the only way they know how to show him! Luckily it doesn't seem to bother Dallin :)

Jaye Lee is such a good help with him. She is calm and gentle around him. She loves to read and sing to him!

He really is such a good baby! He rarely cries and it doesn't take much to get him to smile! We LOVE him so much!


The kids pretty much had to scrape all the snow off our front lawn to make this little itty-bitty snowman...what a sad, snow-less winter!

Happy Birthday to me!

Jared totally surprised me with this for my birthday! I love it!

A night in Vegas!

Jared wanted to surprise me with a quick get-a-way to Vegas before I had the baby. We got on a plane around 4 and were in Vegas not even 2 hours later! We ate at Olives in the Bellagio and had dessert at Serendipity (both were delicious). We had time to walk around a few casinos then got back on board to head home. Being 36 weeks pregnant, I was a little nervous about going into labor, but Jared was confident he could deliver the baby...I am so glad that didn't happen!

Conner's first day of Pre-school!

Conner is going to the Imagination Station Preschool and loves it! His teacher is Miss Shannon, she is so good with the kids. Conner has made lots of friends and enjoys learning. When Jaye Lee brings her homework home, Conner has me copy it so he can do it too! He is a smart little guy!!

1st Grade

I can't believe Jaye is in 1st grade! She has team teachers Mrs. Meacham and Mrs. Reed (they are amazing). She loves eating in the cafeteria, playing on the big play ground and learning. She is a very good student!

Silly Ally

Ally is a funny little girl! She makes us laugh all the time! She is definitely a night takes her forever to fall asleep at night. She reads books, plays with her dolls, plays dress ups, basically anything she can do to not go to sleep. This is how we found her one night after she had fallen asleep!
