It's true! Sawyer is going to be big brother!

We are so excited to let everyone know that baby #2 is on the way. We couldn't be happier!!!

I found out when I was only 6 weeks along. Big change from when I was pregnant with Sawyer and didn't know until after the first trimester. I must say I am one of the lucky women who doesn't get sick when I'm pregnant (knock on wood). I have been super tired but that's about it. Sawyer couldn't be more excited! We took him with us to get the ultra sound and listen to the heartbeat for the first time. That is when we told him there was a baby in my tummy. I think he was a little confused at first but when he heard the heartbeat he got a huge smile on his face.

Here is the first picture of the baby. Sawyer couldn't wait to tell his brothers, sisters and cousins that he was going to be a big brother.
Sawyer, we are so excited for you to be a big brother. We know you are going to be such a great example and friend. We love you so much and are so excited to have another little one join our family.

Pre School

Pre school is so much fun! We are always so excited when it's our turn to teach. The kids are always so much fun and so excited to be at school. Tiffany does such a great job getting it all organized. The school is very structured and the kids learn a ton of stuff. We love it!

One of our art activities was making camel puppets. I was teaching them about pyramids. They were so excited when they got to put on the show! Xander, Sawyer, Tati, Brecklyn and Rachel. Sawyer has such awesome friends!

Haley and the kids came to SLC

Sawyer and I headed to SLC to visit with Haley and kids. They flew in from Cleveland for a few days. It's always fun when they come to town. Everyone gets together at grandma's house to let the kids play while the adults catch up.
We tried to get a picture of all the kids at the house with grandma. We don't have all of the older grand kids but the ones we did have looked adorable! What a good looking bunch of kids. You are one lucky grandma!!! Just the kids
Ali and Brady. He his such a sweet little guy. I loved holding him and playing with him. I must say Ali is such a great big sister to Brady. She really loves taking care of him and helping Haley.
Mitch is one of the kids favorite cousins to play with. He has gotten so tall that he towers over all of them. The kids think it's great because he picks them up and goes in circles with them. What an awesome cousin. Mitch, thanks for being so good to all the kids. Sawyer loves you so much and talks about you all the time.

Mitch playing with Sawyer. We love you Mitch!!! Goodbyes are the worst especially when your not sure when you will get to see them again. Haley and I always have such a great time together. We always have good conversations and truly enjoy each others company. Hopefully we will get out to Cleveland this summer to visit.
Sawyer was sad to say goodbye!

We had so much fun visiting with Haley and the kids. We love you all so much and can't wait to come visit in Cleveland.

Davis flew home with Sawyer

Sawyer was so excited when he found out Davis was coming to Pocatello. Not only was he going to fly on the airplane with us, he was going to have 3 sleepovers and go to preschool with Sawyer. These two boys are so much fun together. I couldn't wait to have them for a few days at our house. Yea for sleepovers!!!!

Here are the boys holding hands as they walk to the airplane. Cheese!!! They were so excited to get on the plane.
I sat next to them in the single seat. They thought they were so big sitting in their own seats. Just the two of them.
Having a nice conversation. Everyone around us thought they were twins. They couldn't believe how good they both were.
Being silly before the main door closed.
They were so excited about having a sleepover that neither of them fell to sleep on the plane. I guess that's a good thing since there is no way I could have carried them both!

They jumped into Sawyer's bed, put on a movie and were out in no time.
After a good nights rest, it was time for preschool. Davis was really excited to see what Sawyer's school was like. Davis goes to Discovery preschool, he loves it! They were all smiles as we headed to the car.

Hillary and Jason came up for the weekend. We had so much fun visiting with them and letting the kids play at the hotel. We always have such a blast with Hillary and Jason. Thanks you two for being such great friends.

What a great week for all of us. Sawyer was so excited that Davis was able to come up for a few days. I must say, I loved every minute.
