Home Sweet Home!

We are here! We are home! I could only take pictures of the outside of my house because the inside is still a little chaotic! More will come! We can't say thank you enough to all our family, friends, & neighbors who helped us move! We feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives! I'm off to unpack some more boxes! Come visit us soon!

In celebration of weaning Jack I decided to take Hannah up to St. George for the weekend. 2 of my sisters and their little girls joined us. We had a G.W.O. (Girls Weekend Out!) We saw Tarzan at the Tuacahn, ate out at yummy restaurants, had manis & pedis, went shopping & swam at the hotel pool! A fabulous time was had by all! Thanks Melanie, Eliza, Emily & Emma! Hannah and I loved being with just the girls! Let's start planning next year!

Thanks Keith for keeping the boys safe & sound and for helping Jack learn to go to sleep without nursing! You are a good daddy! Thanks also for not getting to mad at me for spending way to much money! Love you!

San Diego, CA!!!

So since we are moving to Utah we realize that California won't be just a mere 4 hours away anymore! So we decided to take a last minute, last chance trip to San Diego before our big move! Sunday we drove down and Keith took the kids to a Padres game!

Monday was Nick's official birthday and we went to Sea World to celebrate. We saw Shamu and fed the rays. We saw the new dolphin show which Hannah said was her favorite part of the trip! Hannah and Nick are quite the dare devils and rode all the rides they were tall enough to ride! We watched some fireworks and headed home very happy!

Tuesday we swam at the hotel in the morning and hit the beach in the afternoon. Nick said this was his favorite part of the trip! All 3 kids kids loved digging in the sand and playing in the waves.

Wednesday we went to Lego Land. We had never been before and Hannah & Nick were the perfect ages. They could ride everything and loved every minute of it! They got their faces painted and Hannah couldn't get enough of the roller coasters!

Thursday we swam again and drove home. We are exhausted and ready to start packing up! We will be sad that visiting California won't be as easy once we are in Utah. We love vacationing there! I guess maybe some of our Vegas friends will have to let us crash with them overnight next summer on the long drive! Hint hint!

Happy 4th Birthday Nick!

Today we celebrated Nicholas's 4th birthday. He had his first party with friends. He was so excited to have all the boys over! (plus Hannah) He wanted to have a dinosaur theme. We played games (pin the head on the T-Rex, don't crack the dino egg) and of course a big dinosaur pinata! We also had a dinosaur cake with chocolate ice cream! He was all about the boy toys this year....Star Wars, Iron Man etc. He had a great time and was so glad to get one last hurrah with his friends here in Vegas before we move! We also celebrated by going to see Toy Story 3 this afternoon. It was adorable!

4 things we love about Nicholas are....

1. His smile & hilarious laugh! He has the sweetest smile and can melt your heart! His laugh is contagious and makes it hard to stay mad at him for long.

2. He is a crazy dancer! Always shaking his hips and wiggling his booty to any music!

3. He is a fabulous brother. Whether it's wrestling with Jack or letting Hannah boss him around, he is true through and through.

4. He has a great imagination and plays really well with anyone or anything!

Happy 4th Birthday Nick! You sure are growing up quick! We love you!
