NM ink

My mother-in-law bought some stickers for the boys and they turned out to be tattoos. The kids loved them and so did Chris.

Britain, Britton, and Carter




And look what Chris did with my girly-girl. 


More cute photos from this morning.

Two months old.

Geeze, I sure love this girl. I can't believe that time has flown by so fast. She has been the best baby ever. She sleeps between 6- 8 hours straight per night and smiles at everyone. Her favorite thing is the fan, lights, faces, her daddy, milk, sleep, her brothers and I am sure she thinks I am OK too. She makes the cutest noises ever and they are so girly. She is still spitting up like crazy but she seem to not be affected much by it.

Today we took her to her two month check up and she weighed in at 11.6 lbs and she is in the 75th percentile for both her weight and height while her head was in the 25th. Our boys were always small and short, with big heads. All in all she is happy and healthy and we feel blessed to have such a sweet girl in our home.

Here are a few photos of the last few weeks:


Chris is a sucker for Vans and  his daughter.

Like Brother, like sister.


She looks like she needs fruit on her head like the Chiquita banana lady.

Cute Britton.

Today I walked into the living room to get Macie because she was beginning to fuss and I noticed that Britton was lifting up his shirt and was about to try to feed her. Nursing mother, nursing . . . . . . brother? Yuck, I don't think so!

Here is another funny thing. Britton saw this shadow and said "look, mom, a perfect corndog."

Carters 7th birthday!

My baby is now 7! I can't believe how time just flies by. It has been so much fun to see him grow into such a sweet, wonderful boy. Some of his favorite things are Legos, trips to the zoo, his cousins, his Nintendo DS--especially Mario games, jumping on the trampoline, and his sister Macie ( I can't keep him away!)

Carter's birthday was a week ago but because Chris was working late that night we did most of the celebrating in the morning. We ate doughnuts for breakfast and he opened a few gifts. He got the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid and a Lego set. It is so cute that he was happy with just two small toys. That night I took him to Micky D's for dinner where a friend met us and we let the kids play for two hours. The boys thought that we both deserved mother of they year awards for staying that long!

Yesterday was the party and it was SOO much fun. We went to Hoots, a jumping place, for a few hours where we had the place to ourselves for most of the time and then came back to our home for pizza, cake and ice cream. But the really great thing was my husband! He made balloon animals for the kids. Chris can do it all and that is one of the reasons why I love him. I think this birthday will be one we will remember forever. I couldn't take a lot of photos because I was either busy doing something for the party or nursing.

Here are a few photos:

This was the pizza part where we invited the families over for the dinner. For Hoots it was just the kiddos Carters age. It was a BLAST.

Carter wanted cup cakes with ice cream and toppings for his cake. He looks scared to be holding it with candles:

Our home decorated. Look for the balloon animals:

Macie's Blessing

We were able to bless Macie last Sunday in our new Rio Rancho ward. Both Chris and my parents were able to drive in from Utah and we had some friends come in from the surrounding areas. It was a wonderful blessing. I was thankful to Chris for blessing her with the name we both agreed on. He had teased me quite a bit that he wasn't going to and I told him if he wanted to raise his children with a mother he shouldn't do any quick switches on me. :) Afterward, we had a dinner with all of the people who stood in the circle. It is wonderful to be surrounded by old friends, new friends and great family. Macie is such a lucky girl to be surrounded by so much love.

Here are some photos of the day:





Here are some posed photos of Macie:

Cute pictures.



First day of Pre-school.

Britton went to his first day of pre-school and could not be happier! He felt like a big boy and has been waiting for this since he saw his brother go to school. Just look at the photos and you can see his big smile.

ABQ zoo!

Sara invited us to go to the Zoo. We had so much fun that we decide to get a yearly pass and we've been back twice since. We got to see the polar bears eat lunch and the cougar came within a few feet of us. Here are some pictures.
I think the cougar was hungry for Lilly and Macie because he was looking straight at them.
