Us for now

The saying you never know where life will take you... is so true! When I married Adam 7 years ago, I had a feeling that life with him would be an adventure although at the time I never would have guessed just where it would lead. Over those 7 yrs we've managed to experience the majestic beauty of Alaska(where we made plans to settle, until things drastically changed and thank goodness they did) then the charming small town feel of Farmington for 5 yrs (where our two sweet babies entered our lives) and now here we are in the desert hills of St George. Adam has always talked about making his way back here, to where he relishes in his boyhood days.

I must say....

I NEVER thought I would like it this much! We're having an incredible experience making memories together in the desert, and yes it's HOT! Our days have been filled with lizard hunting, 25 main cupcakes, dance classes, splash parks, late night walks, carousel rides, exploring the river and basking in the extremely hot sun (only when submerged in water).

Life is blissful and we are content to find that home truly is wherever we are.

Days gone by

The vacation is over and life is finally back to usual. We've been busy playing with family,friends and toys that make home well home. Haven was so happy to be back to her room and toys. She has a little stuffed puppy that she named toesby. She is her best friend! She takes her everywhere sometimes it's good and sometimes it's kind of a pain. I am glad she has found happiness in the simple things and I think that's all that matters. I am looking forward to the day her little brother can play with her. She finds joy in his current stage of responding with giggles,big smiles and kicking his legs and flapping his arms. It's fun to have a little one and we're enjoying our little family.

Pink snow birdie

Our little family decided to take the month of January to "snow bird" to St George. Adam's parents bought his grandparents house so we had an excuse to go down. It has been so much fun! We've had the Ostler's traditional New Year's party week down here. Then we took off for a week to go to California to play at Disneyland. When we returned to St George the Record's came down for the weekend. We've had the best time playing in the sun and its hard to even think about going back to the cold. Our good friends The Holland's even made the trek down too and surprised us for the weekend. Its been a month filled with cupcakes,sand dunes,walks,pizza factory,playing the Wii,swimming at the rec center,playing in the sun,shopping and more. I guess its been a month long vacation and really who could ask for more.

Lil brother

We've grown to a family of 4. Little baby Record "Liam Hayes" was born Oct. 8th @ 8:22am and weighed 5 lbs 3 oz 18.5 inches long. We love him so much! It's been an adjustment to have a little newborn again but it's so wonderful. He is such a good baby. It was easy for Haven to love him although he made her cry every time he cried. He is now 4 months and they both find joy in each other. She loves to get him to smile and is proud to be the big sister. It's such a blessing to have two sweet kids.
