How Far Is Heaven?

I know that our children are so close to our heavenly father but, there is nothing like a testimony building moment like I just had. I picked Tucker up from the bus stop and told him,
ME-"Tucker we went to the Dr. today."
TUCKER-"Did ya get that girl baby out!!!"
ME-"No, but we found out that it is really a girl..."
TUCKER-"Ya Mom I already knew that."

Isnt it special that they have a relationship with our heavenly father at years old and know things before we do?

Our New Addition.....

Well today Brad and I found out that we are having a little girl!!!! Yes I know it is crazy, but we are so excited and scared at the same time! We totally had a boy name picked out and we were convinced that it was a little boy, but after today....we are 99.9% sure that our new family member is going to be a girl. Brad is so excited he can barely contain himself, and I am excited as well. But man, as I started listing all the things that we are going to have to buy......talk about ANXIETY LOL! We cant wait to have our last piece to our Kelly puzzle.

Tuckers First Day of School


Well I know that it is late, but Tucker is in school now and he is loving it for sure. Today they started the bus program, talk about a relief for me! Tucker told me all about the lessons he learned for riding the bus and he looked so cute getting on and waving to me through the window. He is attending Monticello Montesorry Charter School and so far, I think that it is a good thing. They have singing time which he of course LOVES, and his favorite lunch items are chicken sandwhiches and bacon cheeseburgers LOL! Here are some pictures from that first day of school....

Happy Anniversary!

October 23, 2010 officially marked 6 years for Brad and I. It is crazy to think that we have been married that long and have two amazing little boys to show for it. I think back to 6 years ago and ponder who we were as people....me 18 and Brad 22, we were so young and had no idea that we could actually be where we are today. We have grown up so much together and I have to say that the first five years were really hard, and at times if you asked, niether of us wanted to stay, but all of the struggles and pain we went through has made us best friends and we love each other more now than we have ever before. I can honestly say that Brad and I appreciate each other and know that we have a great little family and we would not have it any other way. I love Brad more than anything in this world and I am so thankful that he works so hard to provide for our family. We miss him so much when he is gone but it makes it that much better to get to have him home! He is the best dad, our boys adore him just as I do. Brad is my best friend and the love of my life and to have both of those is what makes our family amazing! We have come so far and I look forward to rest of our lifes together to build more memories and raise our children together.

Bryken loves chicken!


Kelle has some chickens in the barn that she has lay eggs. It is great because we dont have to buy eggs anymore! And they are all home grown and I know that they are fresh...not chilling in the store for days..anyways, Bryken ventures out to the barn every time we are there and when the chickens are being loud, he yells at them and I just know he is telling them to be quiet. Kelle took him into the coop the other day, he thought it was great!!

A Ride on the Harley

Brad and I love having our harley. My mom and dad are so great to watch the boys for us once a month so we can take a much needed time for us...it is like our date night :) We rode out to The Golden Spike Monument in August with Bruce and Kelle. It was neat, they put on a reinactment of the actual event and Brad was recruited to join in, he even had to stand in front of everyone and give a speech. It was great!
It was really a great time. I think that it would be fun to take our boys out there on a Saturday while they bring the trains and sound the whistles!!! There was a lot about that day that I never knew!

Riding His Bike....

Tucker learned how to ride his bike this summer. He took off really fast and his favorite thing was riding down at the church. He definetly catches on really fast. He was very proud of himself! I cant believe that he is getting so big and so independent!!!
He is my little helper and I am so glad to have him as mine!!

Playing outside

Tucker loves the water...so we tend to buy him a few slip-n-slides each summer. Brad loved throwing him down the path, and Bry...well we will have to see if he likes it more next summer.

The little pool was fun too. Bryken would rather splash than actually get in but he did okay. I love playing outside with all my boys!!

A But Load of Updates!!!

So I am just going to start from where I left off....
July 4th, 2010 Big Piney, Wyoming
Brad had to work this year on the 4th so the boys and I ventured up to see him. The parade was really good for such a small town....and I see now why Brad says that there is nothing there..but I think that we can make it work no matter where we are as long as we are together.

After the parade, everyone heads to the fair grounds for a free BBQ that the ranchers put on. There is a rodeo and a firework show later on that evening. It was sad not being in Malad this year, but we had a great time together!
Hogal Zoo, July 2010
Bri and I conned Mom, Dad, Shay, and Quintan to going with us to the zoo. Brad had to work and Matt did not see the fun in seeing animals with three kids on a hot day :), but we took on the challenge...and boy was it that. It was so hot and me being sick and prego do did not help the fact. It was a great time though!!

We are Back in Business

There are perks of having my dear sweet husband gone and making good money..when we need something or even just want it we go get it...for me it is need like the new computer he bought me! So now I am back to being able to upload pictures! His are wants...new boots for hunting of course and a new gun...men!!! Thanks babe for my new computer!! I LOVE YOU!!!

Bry is talking more and more

Bryken is so smart and I cant imagine what he will be doing next. Today I was picking apples off our tree and when I carried them inside he looked at me and said, "Apple!" And then he took one and ran off. How sweet is that? He is the smartest little guy. He tries very hard to say Tucker but it comes out as "Cuckor", it works right? He can do the sign language when he wants more, and will point to his belly button, nose, eyes, hair and mouth. I know that he is so special and I am so glad that he is ours. Tucker always tells him, "Say Tucker", he thinks that it is great when Bryken says a word and he makes sure that we know it. He is the best big brother ever!!!
