Holden turned 2

Holden turned 2 and he had a cars b-day party!! It was fun to have our family there. He's getting so big and starting to say so much.

Our new home

Well our house is finally done and we have moved in and are settled. We really love it. Holden doesn't know what to do with all the space.. he just runs around screaming all the time. I still feel like I am in a dream, but I sure don't want to wake up any time soon either. We are loving every second of it. We have put up a vinyl fence and planted the grass, Thanks to Tommy and his family.. love you guys.

McKenley's Blessing

McKenley's blessing went well. It was a fun day. It was also mine and Tom's 6th wedding anniversary, and my mom's birthday!!!

sorry so long

well, it's been a while since I posted. But it's been one thing after another. We got here and Holden got an ear infection. Then a spider bite. and after getting done with all those antibiotics he decided to get pneumonia. Man he's been a sick little boy.. two trips to the ER.. hopefully he's payed his dues for a while. I'm not sure tom and I can take much more.. oh and I was sick in between all of it as well. McKenley's blessing went well, other than I missed the whole thing. Holden got away from grandma- and was heading to get his daddy. Who is his best friend and I was afraid he was going to distract tom, so I went after him and before I knew it- the blessing was over... oh well. I heard he did a great job and McKenley was so beautiful.. it was a really nice day..
We have also been to the cabin, which was a lot of fun.. holden had a great time. And a few trip to Idaho Falls to see our new home.. which is almost done.. this week!! We are very excited.. it looks great.. lots more work to do on our part.. fence, yard, decorating.. well I will get pictures up soon.

we made it

well we officially made it to Idaho and everything went well. We are happy to be here that's for sure. Holden is loving every minute of it and wondering who all these people are that want to hug and kiss him. It's so fun to be home for good. YEAH. well fam and friends- I am having trouble getting a hold of alot of you so I wanted to let you know we are blessing McKenley on Aug.3rd in Paul at 2:45 and dinner after at Murdoch's.

Well, I was just going to mention some of the things going on at our house over the last week or so. My mom got pink eye... so of course I got pink eye. This all happened when McKenley was a week old. So we both went to the doctor and got medicated eye drops.. Just our luck. Weird things happen to me after I have babies. With Holden I got Shingles on my arm and hand - that was awful. So this time its pink eye and my hernia surgery (the joys of pregnancy)!! Very worth it of course. Holden hasn't been out to play much since being sick and having a new sister, so Tom and I decided to take him to the movie WALL-E. He is only 21 months old. But actually did really well and got quite a kick out of it. I enjoyed watching him more than the show. We bought him some snacks- Popcorn, Sprite, and Granola Bites. He was so funny though, just amazed and the huge screen and all the people sitting around us. He kept smiling and laughing, oh then he would wave at everyone. He sat through an hour and a half of it. But didn't last through the last 15 min. Which was fine and more than we had expected. Overall he did good, although I'm still not sure what we were thinking. It was good for him to get out of the house and quite the ADVENTURE for all of us. My mom goes home tomorrow so we'll see what the days ahead of us bring. We are also starting to pack so we can move home- just counting down the days!! And getting really antsy about it.

What a good big Brother

Holden has his moments- but for the most part has become such a great big brother! He just loves getting to hold his little sister. And loves to sit in her chair too of course. No, he's actually done really well with leaving her chair and swing alone. He just likes to go in the kitchen and find trouble as soon as I start nursing her. I'll be glad to have my living room and kitchen all open so I can see the trouble he is getting into!! Instead of having to wait until he comes out of the kitchen to see what he has in his hands. The other picture is of McKenley basking in the sunlight because she had jaundice.

Quad Cities Air Show

Holden got to go out and spend the day with his dad at the air show. He needed to get out and couldn't have been happier to go with dad all by himself for the day. Especially to see the airplanes. The planes had been practicing and flying over our house the day before the show and we would run out to see them and Holden got such a kick out of it. So it was really exciting for him to get to go and see them up close.

Holden and McKenley

Holden was really sick the whole week before we had McKenley. He went to the doctor three times and a trip to the ER the night before I got enduced. So when we brought her home he wasn't aloud to touch or get close.. doc orders. Which I think made it a little harder for him to adjust to having her around and getting so much attention. So finally a few days later we let him hold her and I have never seen him so happy, he just giggled the cutest giggles. What a proud big brother. It made us all feel better. We kept telling him she was giving him kisses and he just couldn't get enough of her.

McKenley Kay

Well she finally made it into the world and into our home. We have just loved every minute of it so far. She was born on Friday the 13th at 3:59 pm. She was 6 lbs. 2 oz. and 20 in.


A couple pictures of Holden. He loves his dad and everything about him. He loves it outside, last time it rained we let him go run around in the rain (little did we know there was a tornado warning still in effect)

My little brother Travis came out to visit us the first of April before leaving on his mission April 23rd to Cherry Hill, NJ. It was so much fun to see him and spend time with him. We went to Chicago and ate at Gino's East (a fun pizza place), went to the Bentley Dealership where the boys had fun staring at all the cars. Tommy decided he needed to sit in one to see how it felt!! Some day Tom- some day.. Travis and I also spent a day in Nauvoo together. I was greatful he was able to make the trip out to see me since I was too far along in my pregnancy to make the trip home to his farewell. We will sure miss him!!

Holden hanging out on the couch, thinking about what kind of trouble he will cause next.
