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!!
