Families share...

So we pass illnesses around our family in such a way that it could become the next big reality show. From ear infections, to strep throat, to colds, we've seen it all. So we are either building up some serious immunities or paving the way for some fat cats kids at Tylenol to go to Harvard. :)

Short timer now...

So, we (and by we and don't even remotely mean me) are nearly there. The baby comes in such a short time that we can officially call it close. We have no idea on the sex of the baby which has added a huge amount of fun this go around. Despite the uncomfortable nature of being nearly 8 months pregnant, Megan is doing well and being Super Mom as she always is.

LONG time, no post!!

It has been a long time, I know. Sorry! I realize just how long it's been when I remember that we haven't even announced on here that we are expecting another addition to our family! Our baby is due to arrive August 5th. We have chosen to be surprised about the gender. Tucker is ABSOLUTELY sure that it is a girl and won't even consider the possibility of it being a boy. Chad thinks it's a boy. I'm not setting myself on either. (Then I can't be proven wrong. See how smart I am?)

We have also celebrated the birthday of a very special little girl since I last posted! Isabel turned 1 in February!! I can't let that go un-documented on our blog. Here are some pictures:
This was BY FAR Isabel's favorite gift that she received. She loves her baby!!

She was slightly timid at first. But, once she got going, there was NO holding back! She was COVERED!

I will try to do better at keeping you all updated on what is going on in our growing family.

The Wisdom of Tucker

Tucker, tonight, spoke great truth. We were watching the Oregon, Oregon St. game on TV, when an Oregon St. player went down with a horrible injury where his foot and ankle twisted around and broke.

Tucker, after a stunned silence said, "Daddy, feet don't go like that."

No, my boy, they do not.

Wow! It's been a long time!

So I thought that as Isabel got older I would have more time to get things done. Boy, was I wrong. She has turned into quite the clingy little thing. Cute? Yes! But, very clingy (and moody) She is definitely a girl!
Chad took the boys to a football game today and Isabel is taking a nap. (AAHHH this is nice) So I finally have some time to get caught up on the blog.


Right before Halloween I went to Gardner Village with my mom, my grandma and the kids. We got this really cute picture.

For Halloween we went to my parents neighborhood for a Halloween parade. It was fast and easy and the kids had a lot of fun. After that we went trick-or-treating in Chad's parents neighborhood. Tucker was so funny. He practically ran from house to house.
Tucker was THRILLED to be a knight! Aidan didn't really want to dress up at all. And DEFINITELY didn't want to have this helmet on his head. What can I say? A picture says a thousand words!

And this is our Pretty Little Kitty! She was SO cute! It's amazing what felt and a hot glue gun can do.

At the last minute I pulled my old High School musical dress out of the closet. And I'm sure if you watch the Office you'll recognize Chad's "costume". He is FACEBOOK.

Just some cute pictures:

Tucker and Aidan get along real well. They play together and very rarely run into any major disagreements. This has us hopeful that they will be an influence for good in one anther's lives. However, it seems to go both ways. One example:

Tucker is running around with a chair on his head and running into things. Aidan picks up his chair and begins to run around behind Tucker and runs into the same thing. Eventually, this turns into running into each other.

At one point, Tucker collides with Aidan, but the chair doesn't cushion them. Aidan starts crying. Here is our conversation:

Me: Tucker and Aidan, give me you chairs right now and go sit in time out.

Tucker: I don't want to.

Aidan: I don't want to.

Me: Give me the chairs, now!

Tucker: No

Aidan: No

Me: Your chairs are in time out.

Tucker: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Aidan: (same decibel level, but 4 octaves lower) aaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Maybe one day Tucker will open a book and sit down to read and Aidan will copy that....

Ah dreams. :)

Aidan's Birthday

Aidan loved his cake SO much that all he wanted to do was play with the Lightning McQueen and Mater that were on it. He didn't even want to eat any of it!! We got him to take one bite, but then he went right back to playing with the cars while saying "Mater's funny".

I'm a picture crazed mom. So, here goes:

Such concentration.

He loves his Mr. Potato Head! Thank you Aunt Brindi and Uncle Spencer!

Dinosaurs are perfect for a little boy! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Lewis!

This is his new "cool shirt" from Grandma and Grandpa Peterson.

Tucker playing with Aidan's new toy. Go figure!

Thank you everyone for coming and making such a fun day for our sweet little "Aidan boy". He really loved his birthday!!

Bear Lake

We went camping at Bear Lake this past month. It was a lot of fun. It was a little colder than normal, but the kids did great! Here are a few highlights:

This picture is pretty self-explanatory. We went to Minnetonka Cave. Tucker loved it! Aidan, not so much. He cried when they turned the lights out, "Mommy, lights back on! Lights back on!" It was hard not to laugh.

This one is proof that I was there. I'm always behind the camera whenever we go somewhere.

The beach was a lot of fun. Too cold to play a lot in the water, but fun.

Isabel LOVES the water

I wasn't going to go out on the wave runner, but decided to take Tucker out for a ride. It lasted a total of about two minutes.

I hit the gas and a HUGE wave of water came up over the front. That's when the screaming began. I kept going for a minute to see if he would calm down, but, he didn't. So, we went back. When we got back to the shore everyone was asking him if it was fun. He said "Yea! I was screamin'!" Hopefully, he will go again next year.

Random cute pix from July

This is at the Provo Falls up in the Uintahs. We took the boys shoes and pants off so they could walk in the FREEZING cold water. Obviously Aidan did not want to. (He eventually did and thought it was pretty cool, no pun intended)

No captions needed. This is just CUTE!

This is at Robintino's in Bountiful. (Tucker, Abby and Kenyon) Don't pay attention to all the pizza in Tucker's teeth.

Tucker doesn't really like fireworks. But he's fine if he covers his ears.

Daddy's little girl!

This is on the Ogden Temple grounds. It was a gorgeous day!

Tucker being squished by his cousin's.

This is how I found her after her nap. I had to race to get the camera.
