The object of the picture tag is to:

1) Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer.

2) Select the 4th picture in the folder.

3) Explain the picture.

4) Tag 4 people to do the same.

No cheating (cropping, editing, etc.)

Have fun!!!

Here's mine!

I've been tagged....

This was 9 days after Talan was born getting his picture made by our Christmas tree.
Its so hard to believe he was ever this small.

Look how much our sweet boy has grown in the last year. Its hard to believe that he is 2 now and how much he has changed over the last year. He has brought so much joy and love into our lives and even though it makes me sad seeing him grow it makes me happy to see the little guy he is turning into.

A Great Day for a Digging Party...

Thanks Aunt Lissa and Julie for our balloon tree.

Our digging party was a huge success!! Even though everyone thought I was crazy especially my sweet husband the kids had a ball and thank the good Lord above for allowing yet another year with good weather. And now I do believe I will get the sand box I have been asking for.

Talan was ready to dig into his cake as soon as we put it down he was going for it, I think he thought the whole thing was for him like last year.

We had friends of all sizes and ages and we loved having them celebrate with us.

Opening presents was an interesting event. If started with him opening his gift from the O'Briens first which is the 4 wheeler which after that he was done. So the only way we got him back was letting him sit on it while opening the other gifts. As you see he also lost some clothes in the process. He decided he didn't want his clothes on anymore but I atleast got him to keep his shirt on. What can we say its his party and he can strip if he wants to.

Before we even finished opening gifts he also decided it was time to go back outside so out we all went again. We did get more clothes on him but not without a battle. All in all we had a wonderful day and am so thankful for all our friends and family who made it out to play and celebrate this wonderful day in our sweet little boys life.

Annual Mom and Daughter Ornament Party

This started about 12 years ago and it is still going strong. This year Momma Veitch hosted a wonderful bunch and it was so nice and relaxed and great to see everyone. We all might not see each other but once a year but when we all get together its like we have not missed a day. Thats what it means to have life long friends!! Thanks ladies for a wonderful time and look forward to doing it for many more years to come.

Our new family tradition...

A few weeks ago we all headed to the Pine Hills tree farm and had such a fun time. We didn't think it would happen due to the rain but as soon as we got there the rain just about disappeared. The kids all had a ball and of course Talans highlight was the tractor ride and watching the men dig up a tree. We also got to see real reindeers which Talan called a dog and horses too. Even though we decided not to get a tree just yet the O'Briens did and this new tradition will hopefully be one we hold on too for awhile.

We just knew it was going to be another boy so we were surprised when we read girl. We had the ultrasound lady write it down and put it in an envelope for us to read when we were ready. We really thought we were going to wait til Christmas but we just couldn't stand it. So we called all the family over and opened the envelope all together. It was a great moment and everyone was so excited, Talan thought it was really great he thought it was all for him. Now we can't wait to meet this little girl.
The dress I made when we first started trying to have babies and thought just maybe I could use it one day and now we can. I just hope it fits. Now on to the pressure of deciding names.
Oh by the way poor thing looks likes she might have her mommas feet. Sorry little girl.

Doctor's Appointment Wednesday!!

Tomorrow we go for a doctors appointment where we may or may not find out what this sweet baby is. With Talan we didn't find out and it was such a wonderful surprise but we are not sure about this time around. We have gone back and forth trying to decide so I guess tomorrow we will make our decision. No matter what we are just excited about seeing this baby, its been way to long!! So, we will keep you all posted!! Keep us in your prayers that everything goes o.k..

We started out the day at Matthew's sister Jinni's. Where Talan had a blast on the trampoline with Maygan and Joesph. Then it was to my moms house for round two. All the kids did a fun coloring project before we ate.

Talan's favorite part!!

We decided to try to get some updated pictures of everyone but I think maybe next year we need to find another spot this one got full fast. We took all the grandkids, then they were suppose to hold up how old they were, then all the ladies in the fam and then all the men. The men did not corprorate very well as you see half of them were not even in the picture. Atleast we tried.

To sum up our day we were pooped but we had a wonderful day with all of our families and hope you did too.
