The most exciting thing coming up actually is that me and the kids get to go to California for almost two weeks and hang out with my Mom and Mitchell. My Dad (Dan) is coming up to Oregon to frame for Ben and Tami's house. Since my mom can't take 2 weeks off from seminary and everything else she does, she got the bright idea that she would drive up with Dan, then two days later we (me, Mom, Prudence and Ian) will drive down to Cali for a couple of weeks. I am SOOOOO excited. Not thrilled about the 14 hour drive with a potty-training-almost 3-year old or a teething 16 month old. But the rest of it will be great! The best part is that we will get back the day before General Conference and get to watch it all together, then celebrate Prudence's birthday with my Mom and Dan here.
A week after we get back from Cali, Jason and I are going to Las Vegas to celebrate our 6 year anniversary. And since the awesome Bill and Ericka Westmoreland have an anniversary in October too (5th for them), we decided to go together! I'm counting down the days for that one. And if I could get back on the wagon, I need to lose 3 more pounds to hit my goal before Vegas! That will be 30 pounds total. May it never be seen again!!!
I will indeed try to be more consistent with this. I love reading other people's blogs on occasion. And I know it's a good way to keep tabs on what's going on in my life so I don't forget the precious things my wonderful children do. They grow up too fast.

Within the past year our family has grown from 3 to 4. Ian was born on May 10, 2010. Besides his projectile vomiting (I really do mean projectile, who knew a baby could produce so much spit-up) he is a great baby. He has recently discovered his voice and loves to laugh and smile at anyone who will look at him. Prudence loves being a big sister and is our little ball of energy. She will be two in October, which is so hard to believe.
Jason changed jobs shortly after Ian was born, which allowed me to quit my job to stay at home full time with the kids. It has been an adjustment for everyone, but better overall. I guess this is it for now. I'll try harder to keep whoever may be following updated. Remember, if you have any good blogs to follow for books, cooking, crafts, couponing...just let me know!

Prudence playing in the exersaucer. It usually doesn't take long for all of the toys to end up on the floor around her. She then screams and trys to look at them, wondering where they went. By the time we give them back to her, the damage has been done, and she no longer wants to play. She can be such a drama queen:)
