Kid History Brett

On Friday we went to dinner at Jason’s. I love that place! Healthy food for adults AND children, plus free ice cream cones (okay, I do realize I said healthy and ice cream cones in the same sentence). Wyatt slept the entire time we were there, so we had a chance to focus our attention [...] Read more »


Wyatt 8 weeks

Wyatt has reminded me so much of Jack as a baby, so I tried to recreate a photo I took of Jack when he was around Wyatt’s age of 8 weeks to compare the two. Wyatt was all smiles… And here’s the picture of Jack from 4 years ago… Conclusion: They don’t look as similar [...] Read more »

Jack’s 3rd Birthday

Jack turned 3 at the end of April. I can’t believe it! My baby is 3! He Skyped with Grandpa Jack and Grandma Theresa in Ohio while opening up their birthday presents. He was thrilled to receive birthday cards and gifts in the mail from great-grandparents. He really wanted a pirate cake, so I picked [...] Read more »

The Sounds of Music

Our kids love to sing. It’s fun to listen to them, even if they get the words wrong or sing a little off-key. I love to sing, but my voice sounds best when singing the tenor part. If you don’t know already, that is a male singing part. Awkward much? Peter is the musical genius [...] Read more »

I had a vision, though, and I somehow convinced the kids to go with it. Presenting Mermaid Leah and Pirate Jack. My favorite part of Halloween: Jack’s pirate headpiece slipping over his eyes like [...] Read more »

I love boots and sweaters and apple cider and pumpkin anything and chili and soups and Halloween and changing leaves and football season! It’s not the same rooting for the Buckeyes [...] Read more »

I’m going to make this as painless as possible by summarizing what’s been going on lately with each member of our family. After that I will bombard you with photos of our summer activities. PETER Peter [...] Read more »

Jack Jack

This post is all about Jack, and is mostly for far away family who want to know all about his latest and greatest accomplishments. Accomplishment #1: Opening Doors. Now, this may not seem like a big accomplishment, but it has changed our lives. I don’t think he had the desire to open doors, nor was [...] Read more »

Easter weekend and Jack turns 2

Easter weekend was a whirlwind. A good kind of whirlwind, not like a tornado or something. We attended a graduation party for Peter’s cousin Jacob on Friday night. It’s been so much fun getting to know Peter’s family here in Utah! I forgot to take pictures. I know, lame. On Saturday we attended a BBQ [...] Read more »
