Happy Birthday Ryan!!

Yesterday was Ryan's 3rd birthday! I can't believe that he is three years old already! We are so happy that he is in our family and we love the excitement he brings. Ryan is such a sweet, happy and active boy and we are excited to see what else he has in store for us!! We love you big boy!! (3 months)
(2 Months)

Ryan is really into being a prince, with a sword of course, and he is always looking for bad guys or dragons to slay. He loved his orange dragon cake!
Happy Birthday buddy!! We love you!!

My cute family

I love when my whole family can get together. It is getting harder and harder to make it happen, but it really is a blast when it does. I am truly blessed with an amazing family who are all incredible examples to me and help me to be a better person. Thank you Steve for being our family photographer...the pictures always turn out fabulous!

It's a BOY!

We found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby boy!! Our due date is Sept. 16 (Samantha's birthday) and we couldn't be happier. Two crazy boys running around my house, and an older sister to keep them in line, should make life interesting, but it is going to be fun!! I feel very blessed that we are able to expand our family and that we are an eternal family. What more could I ask for?

This picture is only missing one child, Megan, who is almost two. There may be times when a person could feel a little overwhelmed when they visit my parents home, when we are all visisting. 15 grandkids all 8 and under can get a little loud and crazy at times (actually, all the time). But they sure have a blast together and are all best friends. I couldn't feel more blessed to have such a wonderful family, even if we look a little insane at times! Especially with two more kiddos on the way in September and October!
Everytime we visit Aunt Angie, my kids get so excited about hearing "adventure stories" at bedtime. She is amazing at making up stories that entrance the kids and they can't get enough. However, it does take a lot more energy to do that every night so this night, Aunt Leslie gave Aunt Angie a break and just read a book to them.

What is a visit to grandma's house without making cookies?!?!

Everyone just loved hearing Ryan's horse noise. If you haven't heard it, it is quite the experience!
We love cousins, BBQs and fun times!!


Rich actually graduated with his Masters Degree from BYU this past December so we decided to go to April graduation so that he could walk. We are so proud of you babe! And SO glad that it is over! ;-)

Our brother-in-law also graduated with his Bachelors. They are off to Auburn, AL for a Masters Degree. Good luck guys!

Ryan was already so tired from the trip and playing with cousins, that he crashed just before the two hour long commencement started. It was nice to be able to enjoy it and not try to keep him quiet and entertained.
We love you Rich and are so proud of all that you have accomplished. You are a wonderful husband and father. Thank you for all that you do for us!
