Time doesn't stand still....

9 years ago today David and I were married in the Salt Lake City, UT Temple! Where does the time go?

We have been through a lot these past 9 years...




...MORE SCHOOL (Hopkins)


...and yes we are still in SCHOOL!
In fact, today also marks Ben's first day of KINDERGARTEN! He is attending West Towson Elementary School. A brand new $22 million school with lots of bells and whistles. The school motto is GO WEST! They will promote the pioneer spirit! Couldn't help but remind me of home as we pioneer the EAST!

And after 9 years.....I wouldn't change any of it for the world!

5 months!

Jacob is 5 months old today! Where has the time gone? Here are some recent pictures of my little angel. LITERALLY, he must be an angel! When I think I just might go crazy, all I have to do is look at him. He sleeps through the night. He doesn't insist on being held. He eats well. He tolerates, and even seems to enjoy, the constant poking and proding he receives from Ben and Kate. He is so content and easy going! He is my dream! I needed a dream baby! They really do exist!

Jacob was born with a full head of thick, brown hair, just like Ben. Over time though, it has slowly fallen out and appears to be growing in blonde. With his beautiful, blue eyes I fear he may be attempting to follow in his sister's footsteps! He even giggled yesterday as he watched her climb the pole in the basement. Lets just pray he didn't notice yesterday when she bit Ben or when she locked Ben and I outside when we went out to move the sprinkler! Please don't get any ideas little Angel!

Ben at 5 months!

Kate at 5 months!
