This little squirt is officially crawling. She took longer than the others to start crawling, but I'm really okay with that. I was hoping she would stay little forever. She took her first crawl on Friday and now she is a pro. She's all over the place and starting to get into things. She has a pretty crazy smile with her five teeth all different sizes. Sierra is the biggest mommas girl. She is content as long as she can see me. She doesn't take kindly to strangers either. She is the cutest bug ever and she makes me crazy happy.


Well today is Jared's 30th birthday. Can you say OLD? In celebration of his birthday, we had a birthday party yesterday. It was mostly family with a few friends (thanks to all those who came). We had dinner, played some volleyball and had cake and ice cream. A special thanks goes to my sister in law and her amazing cake making skills.

This is Jared's "Audi" cake. Those of you who know my husband know of his love for Audi's and his passion for taking apart/putting together Audi's.

Today Jared's brother Devin and his family came up and helped us finish off his birthday celebration.

Happy Birthday Honey, thanks for being a great husband and father.

I just love this picture. She really is the happiest baby ever!

Better late than never

I decided I would take this opportunity to blog while the kids are being babysat by the TV at the moment.
Morgans Birthday was over a month ago and I am now getting around to blogging about it. My little Princess is now 4. For her birthday, we just kept it simple. We opened presents, had cake and ice cream, went to McDonald's and let the kids play on the play land and then we let the kids stay up late and we watched "Tinker Bell" (for the 90th time). It was very simple, but Morgan had fun. Morgan got a memory game from her Grandma and Grandpa S. She loves it, and I am amazed and how good she it at it. She has an incredible memory. Grandma C. made her a twirly skirt that she wears all the time. Any time the radio is on and she wants to dance she has to have one of her twirly skirts on.

I realize that her hair and clothes are different in each picture, but don't let that fool you, they were taken the same day, in fact it was only about 5 minutes apart.

Some thing about Morgan,

*She is very bossy

*She loves to be the "Princess"

*She loves doing school work of any kind.

*She loves to draw/color/stamp/paint/cut/trace. . .

*She has "Attitude"

*She is a super big sister, always looking out for David and Sierra. Don't worry, she doesn't let David get away with anything.

*She is so loving, she always make sure you know how much she loves you!

And we sure love her.

Funny Boy

The other day David really wanted to take a bath. He kept asking and I kept putting him off. A few minutes later I hear the bath water running. He decided I was taking to long so he was going to do it himself. He doesn't know how to adjust the temperature of the water so when I went in to help him this is what I found. . .

Apparently the water wasn't warm enough. This kid cracks me up!

My uncle/friend/example

James Stewart (Jim) Manwill, Jr. "If there wasn't humor in heaven before, there is now." Jim, age 49, passed away peacefully on January 12, 2010 at his home in Salt Lake City, Utah. Born June 26, 1960 to J. Stewart and Mary Jean Manwill. Served an LDS mission in Portland, Oregon. Married his wife, Sandra Grijalva Lara, in 1983 in the Salt Lake Temple. Was a real estate agent for 29 years. Well-known for his sense of humor, random acts of kindness and work ethic. He loved his family and spent his life in their service. Survived by his wife, Sandra; his four children - Jeremy (21), Daniel (19), Vanessa (15), Ryan (10); mother, Jean Manwill; siblings, Louise Price, Karen Caldwell, Peggy Olson, Linda Brewster and Brent Manwill. Preceded in death by his father. Viewing will be Thursday, January 14, 2010 from 6-8 p.m. at the Grandview 3rd Ward, 2930 South 2000 East. Funeral services will be 11:00 a.m. Friday, January 15, 2010 at the same location; viewing one hour prior to services. Interment at Elysian Burial Gardens. Services in the care of Premier Funeral Services.

Jim was an inspiration to all that knew him. He was kind, funny, sensitive and loving. He was a great example to me of service and love. He was so amazing that the Lord took him from his mortal existence because he was needed more on the other side. I know Jim is already hard at work in heaven. His death is not the end, it is merely a mission farewell. I love you Jim, God be with you til we meet again.

One for the Books

Let it be know that my Davey Dew is POTTY TRAINED. . . . .WHOO HOOO! I am so excited to be done with diapers, at least with him. He has gone 2 weeks and a 13 hour car ride and stayed dry, (minus the accident he had at church and of course I wasn't prepared because he had been dry for so long). The best part is, I don't even have to help/remind him, he just goes in the bathroom and does it all by himself!!!! I am such a proud mother!

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.
