Footprints on the wall

Here is the photo of all 5 of my kids footprints on the wall at the Birth and Women's Center where they were born. Levi's are upside down since he was breech.

Levi- 3 weeks

Our little guy is growing fast. He weighed in at 8 lb, 20 1/2 inches at 3 weeks which is 2 lb, 2 inch gain since he was born. He is getting a little chubbier in the face and is a great baby.

Vanilla Cherry Chocolate Cookies

We were stuck inside Saturday due to the rain. Mike and Clara were watching a cooking show and decided to try the recipe for Vanilla Cherry Chocolate cookies. Clara made them and they are delicious! Here is the link if you want to try some yourself.

Greta goes to preschool.

This is Greta winking at us.

Greta started a Mother's Day Out preschool this week. She goes Tuesday and Thursdays, our neighbor Ms. Libby is her teacher, so she rides with her friend Hawke. In the past I have only done co-op preschools with my kids, so this is new for me. It is working out nicely since Levi came and I need a few months to figure out a new schedule. The curriculum is Sonlight and this week Greta learned about the Ten Commandments and the school rules.

Levi Awake

Levi is 2 weeks old now and it seems like he has been part of the family forever. He sleeps most of the time, but I did remember to take some pictures of him awake last night. His hair is still very dark and we can't quite figure out who he looks the most like. What do you think?

9 Grandkids

This last weekend my brother Dallas came to town and brought my nephew Lincoln. My sister came in town as well and we tried to get a good picture of my mom, Nana and her 9 grandkids, 7 boys and 2 girls. Not a single picture had everyone looking the same direction, but I think the personalities are cute in the shots. It was a fun time getting to play with Lincoln and visiting with Dallas and Ashley. The went with Mike to the BYU-OU game where BYU won!

My little brother is engaged!

Ivan proposed to Ashley Haslam who is from Portland, OR. They came to visit last week. We are excited to have her in the family. December 19th is the date of the marriage at the Portland temple. The Dallas open house will be December 29th. We had fun visiting and went on a double date to see a comedy thriller, "The Deathtrap" at The Pocket Sandwich Theater. Mike and I went on our first date there in January 1994. It is live theater in a small setting and I highly recommend it. The website is:

Little Brother

Here are photos of all the kids holding Levi. So sweet.

And there were 3 boys and 2 girls!

The tie breaker has arrived! We are happy to announce that Levi Owen was born Saturday, August 29, at 5:20am. He weighs 6 lb 2 oz and 18.5 inches. He is a sweet baby with lots of dark hair. He is a good eater, sleeper, and enjoys being held by his big brothers and sisters. He made a dramatic entrance via emergency c-section since he was breech with a foot first. Mom and baby are doing well and got to come home Sunday evening.
