COMING AUGUST 13, 2010.....

We are so excited to be having another baby, this ultra sound was taken at nine weeks. When I came home from that appointment we told the boys and Hudson was so excited. He has told me more than once that he wants a baby sister! I of course would have to agree that it would be fun to have some more pink in this family. But what I want more is a healthy baby! Even if it is another boy I can't wait !

The Ladies Love Me

I saw these cute valentines shirts at Old Navy and bought them for the boys, they say the ladies love me.

Last week at school Hudson was learning about resturants and chefs. So we thought it would be fun to take them to this resturant to watch them cook the food. The flames made them a little nervous but they thought it was really cool to watch.

Sitting on the .. I don't know what animal outside the resturant

Remy being silly with the bug puppets, he likes to chase you around and get you with them.

Hudson and Remy

Hudson has been playing soccer again this year, he is doing really good and has even made a few goals. He loves it and is doing much better at not pushing or tackling people. We had a really good family night this week, I love that even though the boy's ( mostly Remy) can't seem to sit still for 5 seconds we are always able to feel the spirit at one point. We decided that we would start bearing our testimonies at the end of each family night so Hudson could practice every week and then he wouldn't be so nervous. He said a very sweet testimony which started the water works for me! I am so amazed how much he remembers and learns at church and at home, it is so important to keep teaching about the Gospel when ever we get the chance he is a little sponge. Hudson said the closing prayer after family night and said something funny he said " help mom and dad to teach Remy not to hit"... wait a minute didn't he have that problem all day one day last week?

Another funny Hudson story, for those that have seen Monsters and Aliens Hudson out of the blue quoted it. He said " What idiot made this", we quickly explained that idiot was not a nice word and not to say it. As soon a Travis finished telling him that 5 seconds later Hudson says, " Derek is a selfish jerk" . We all had to hold in our laughter and tell him that it wasn't nice to say the either and he replies, "Susan says it" . Well looks like he might be done watching movies!!

Remy is a full blown busy two year old! Lately he loves to go into the bathroom and climb up and curl up in the sink I have no idea why. A few weeks ago he learned how to climb out of his crib. I had layed him down for a nap and Travis was going to the bathroom and then was going to have a nap with me. Travis walked in our room and asked me if I wanted him to put Remy down for his nap. I told him I already did and wondered what in the heck he was talking about. I looked over and there is Remy sitting on the ground with his binki and blanket and bear in our door way. Ahh little stinker! We were able to get a crib tent and that has solved the problem and I don't have to worry about him hurting himself. He is such a determined little guy. He is starting to talk a little more and learning new words. A few of his newest are, bus, watch, ouch and of course no! He still is very animated about everything and always has a cute funny face when he is trying to explain something to you. Even though it is complete jabberish when he is talking to you it is fun to guess what he needs.

I am so grateful for two busy boys! I wouldn't trade them for anything. I took them to the pool yesterday when Travis left for work because they were having a pool party BBQ on base. It was so fun to swim with them. Husdon is still a great swimmer and loves to spend all of the time jumping of the edge doing crazy tricks. He even did a front flip, I am not lying when I say he has no fear. Remy is loving wearing floaties and is getting around pretty good. He also follows in his brothers foot steps and loves jumping in. He does not want to be catched or have any help. I would put my hands up and he would wave them away saying "no no no". He to has little fear. I am sorry to all of you who are bored reading this but this is my way of journaling and I need to do better.

Cardboard House

We bought some new couches this week and this is what we made with one of the boxes!

It was really fun to build it with Hudson and then they colored it the next day. It reminded me of when were little and my Dad would bring home fridge boxes from the construction site at work. We loved it. It is a big house all four of us fit in nice and I can almost stand straight in it. So of course it takes up a lot of room. We threw the other box away and Hudson asked if we were throwing his house away. I told him not yet but that we are not keeping it forever. He then replied "But why? I want to move it with us to Utah" Sorry buddy that is not going to happen.

North Carolina Trip

We went to North Carolina for Christmas to visit My parents and sister. We had a ton of fun! It was fun to see them in action with the Missonary's.

They had Zone Conference while we were there so we went to a little and then to the lunch so the boys could see all the missonary's.

We bought the boys some Missonary tags that say Future Missionary. Hudson loved that he had a tag like Grandpa and Grandma.

Testing out the bike for Grandpa!

Hudson and Grandpa had a few good wrestiling matches

I bought Bethany and I a purse pattern with some cute fabric for Christmas. It was a fun project to do with her and my mom I probably would have never got around to doing it if I didn't have some one to do it with.

Grandma Lil and the boys before going to church.

Hudson and Remy both found little vaccums and had to much fun with them. At least the house was really clean in a few places.

Travis and I were able to go the Columbia, South Carolina temple while we were there. It was so nice to be at the temple, we miss it. There is not one in PR and we always are excited to go to the states to go.

We took the boy's to a fun libary, none of those pictures turned out very good. But here are a few on the outside.

We were also able to go to a babtisim. This nice Lady asked my dad if he would babtism her. It suprised him he didn't really plan on doing that part of the mission because usally they ask the ones that teach them. It was a really nice experience and nice to take Hudson to see.

They have a Nascar speedway that we went to see. We were supposed to go on a bus tour on the track but they were all full. So we just went and looked at it. It was freezing that day!

Christmas 2009

We were able to go to North Carolina to visit My parents and Sister who are there on a mission. It was so nice to be able to spend some time with family this Christmas, the past two years we have stayed in PR. The boys were a lot of fun this year and it was fun to enjoy it with them. I think the best part was being with family, talking to family on skype and talking to my brother Parley who is serving a mission in Brazil.

Christmas Eve

Having Christmas dinner, yummy and it was so fun to cook with my Mom instead of by my self.

Opening Christmas Jamies and Grandma gave them some cute dino slippers. Remy put them on and started stomping around and growling, it was really funny.

We had his party on Saturday and this year I made a bulldozer cake. The boys loved it!

I love these two, and I love them even more when they get along and play nice with each other.

Thank you all for the Birthday calls to Remy, he loved it each time someone called to sing Happy Birthday he would start dancing and try to sing along!
