Happy 30th Birthday Brad!!

We had a fun filled birthday weekend! Brad turned 30 on March 2!! I used to think 30 sounded old but not anymore!! 30 is YOUNG!! ;) We got to celebrate Brad's birthday with his family Saturday! What a fun time! Then I surprised Brad March 2nd by getting my cousins wife to babysit so we could go on a date and actually relax! It was fun but kind of weird to not have Sean to chase after. After dinner we went back to my cousins to pick Sean up and all my cousins were there for a surprise Birthday party! YAY!! We had a fun time! I'm grateful we could celebrate the most amazing man in my life's birthday!! I feel blessed everyday that I get to call Brad my husband! He's an amazing husband and father! We are blessed and we love him!!!

Sean Loves his Nana! She is the only person who will feed Sean candy for dinner. Sean was WIRED after eating sugar for dinner. 

Sean was SOOOO excited for Dad's birthday boons (Balloons)! 

Sean was a big helper making dad's birthday cake. He LOVED licking the whipped cream lid!

Happy Birthday Brad!!

 I love this picture! He looks so guilty!
 Sean started smiling really big RIGHT when we stopped taking pictures. He cooperates really good when we take pics!

Grocery Shopping!

Sean LOVES grocery shopping but that doesn't mean he LOVES cooperating while grocery shopping. Haha! We try to get the car shopping cart because if we don't get the car shopping cart then Sean chases the people around who have the car shopping cart and that usually ends with me struggling to hold a kicking and screaming toddler. I'm sure it's a funny sight for others but it sure is an unpleasant  workout for me! :) Today we were not so lucky to get the car shopping cart so we tried the mini shopping cart! Sean was pretty proud to be pushing his own shopping cart! He was a BIG helper when it came to shopping! He loaded the cart up with gummy candies. I thought it was funny that both things he put in the cart were gummy candies. He is his dad's son because his dad loves gummy candies too.  

 Today Sean and I took the railing off the one side of his crib. He was SOOOO excited to have a "new" bed! Let's hope this makes bedtime a more pleasant experience.  

Don't mind all the diapers stashed under the bed....

Idaho Fun!

Brad has been going on a lot of business trips lately (Booooooooo!!!) so Sean and I go to Idaho to spend time with Grandpa and Grandma Searle, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins! We always have LOTS of fun!! Sean LOVES tractors!! He can spot a tractor anywhere! Sometimes I don't know why Sean is saying tractor but sure enough I eventually find the tractor he is talking about. Haha! Looks like Sean is already out smarting his mom! He amazes me everyday with how smart he is getting! I'm so grateful I get to be Sean's mom!!!
 GrandpaSearle, Grandma Searle and Sean visiting Grandpa's tractors! FUN!

Excuse my big belly! My little man inside me is growing by the second!

Sean was in heaven! 

Shopping at the dollar store with these hooligans was exciting! :)

Yes! I am a little delayed BUT I am really trying to post more this year....We will see if that happens! It seems like the Christmas season goes faster and faster every year. It has really made me think of things we can do with our kids to emphasize the real reason for the season! We had a FABULOUS Christmas spending time with family in Idaho. Here are some pictures to show what fun we had!

Sean LOVES his Grandpa and Grandma Searle! We enjoyed staying at their house for a week and a half! They treat us like royalty when we are there!

December 23, 2014- Family tradition! 
First, We get comfy in our pajamas then we jump into the car, go look at the Christmas lights and last we stop and get ice cream! This year we started our tradition by going to the temple. We talked about what lights represent at Christmas time and we talked about the nativity scene in front of the temple. What a wonderful time of the year it is to remember Christ in our lives! It was cold but the temple and nativity was beautiful! What a great family tradition! 

Enjoying some Orange leaf!! YUMMMMMM! Sean was way too busy eating his (Well, his mom's) frozen yogurt to look at mom for a picture. 

Christmas Eve morning!
We all go and pick out a yummy donut to eat with hot chocolate for Christmas Eve night. Christmas Eve night we all gather around the table and eat our donuts and hot chocolate while we talk about what we are grateful for in the past year and the many blessings we have received. It used to be a lot more calm but the more kids we have the rowdier it is becoming. :)
Christmas Pajamas!

CHRISTMAS MORNING!!! Sean was SOOOOOOO excited to get a tractor from Grandpa and Grandma Searle and another tractor from Nana and Papa Staples! Looks like Sean's grandparents know what he likes! TRACTORS!!
Sean and Jack love their Great Grandpa Searle! We are so blessed to have such wonderful family! What a wonderful Christmas we had!

It's been a while!

Well, it has almost been a year since I have posted anything so I think it's about time I make a post! A LOT has happened in the past year!! We moved from our Bountiful home to our Eagle Mountain home in April and then we rented our Eagle Mountain home out in November and moved to Logan to start a new adventure! We are also expecting another little boy in April! We feel blessed to be having another little boy! Kids really are such a joy! Heavenly Father knew what he was doing by letting us have children here on earth! I love my boys, including Brad, more then I thought I ever could! It is amazing to think that Christ loves us just as much or more then I love my boys. It is overwhelming for me to think that my Savior loves me with the same love I feel for my boys! I am blessed!

Moving from our Bountiful Home! It was a sad day! We loved our little home and amazing neighbors!

Sean is getting a little brother! Yay!!

YAHOO!!! We made it to Disneyland! Brad's favorite ride Grizzly River Rapids
is behind us. 

The whole family!! (except Angie because she is pregnant and couldn't come and mom because she is taking the picture.) The rocks behind us is the new Cars Ride. It was SOOOO fun!! Brad thought something was wrong with me during that ride because I couldn't stop laughing because it was so fun!! Should pregnant woman ride the Cars ride....No, but man was it worth it! :)
 King of the churros! Dad LOVES his churros! And we love him!
It's churro time for everyone. YUMMMMM!!!

Merry Christmas! Disneyland had all their Christmas Decorations up and they had their Christmas firework show every night, WELL every night that the weather cooperated. 
Whew!! Grandpa was exhausted!! Good idea, Turn on a TV show for the kids and zonk out! Notice his nice robe! Our room was the Presidential Suite and it was like a palace so the robe is very fitting!! The Suite was definitely bigger then my house! :)

SEA WORLD!! Training these HUGE animals to do what they do it UNBELIEVABLE!
Grandpa holding Kyden and Hailey's hands! They LOVE their grandpa!

Sunday! We all went to church and then came back and made a nice lunch in our palace. :) It is always nice to go to church on vacation. I always complain at first and then I am always so happy I went!

YAY!! Happy little Hailey kept us smiling! She is so animated. We had a GREAT time in Disneyland! Thanks to my dad and mom we were able to go! They are the BEST!!! :)
