Hannah is such a good big sister.   She loves to hold Olivia & play with her.  One day she got really quiet & I went in to check on her & she had fallen asleep with Olivia on her.  Tooo cute!!

 Olivia 3 months old!
 Trying to catch a smile on camera.

 So Cute!!!
Trevor wanted a picture of him.
Parker turned "10" in November.   I can't believe we have a 10 year old.  We love him so much!!!
Here is a picture of his cake.  I didn't get one of him blowing out the candles.

Halloween 2012

Here are our Halloween pics.   Halloween was Super warm this year.  It was fun to stay home & go trick or treating in our neighborhood.  These pics were taken before our Ward Trunk-or-treat which was held the Saturday before Halloween.

 Trevor was a Spider.  Parker was the Grim Reaper.  Hannah was a Wicked Fairy  & Olivia was a pumpkin.
 Our boys! 
Our Girls!

September Happenings

Well I said I'd keep up my blog, but It didn't happen.  4 kids is WAY harder than I expected.  Anyways here is a bit of what when on in September & October.

Parker earned his Bear at our September Pack meeting.  
Parker found a snake in our backyard.
Trevor was not too sure of it.
Hannah participated in the Future Lancelle dance clinic held at Layton High School.  She has so much fun performing at half time at one of  the football games.  She is already asking when she will get to do this again.

Hannah showing off her Toothless smile!
Trevor helping feed Olivia!  Such a good helper!!

Growing Olivia

I am not very good at taking pics of my kids.  I never have been.  Here are a few of Olivia that show how much she is changing
Olivia on the day she was born. 

 1 week old.
 2 weeks old.
4 weeks old
 5 weeks old 
 7 weeks old

 I was trying to catch her smile in these last few pics, but I missed it pretty much every time. 

Olivia is getting more fun.  She smiles and coos all the time.  (especially for mommy)
She still has her days and nights mixed up.  She is up every 3 hours at night.  
Then during the day she sleeps for about 5-6 hours each morning.
Our other kids were sleeping 7-8 hours a night by now.  Oh well she is sure cute & we love her so much.

First day of school

Parker & Hannah started school on September 4th.
 The yearly pic taken in front of our fence.
 Hannah is in 2nd grade this year.  
Her teacher is Mrs. Johanson. (same teacher Parker had in 2nd grade)  
We love her and are so excited for a fun year for Hannah.
 Parker is in 4th grade this year.  
His teacher is Mr. Joy.  
He is a new teacher, just fresh out of college & has been teaching at our school since the middle of last year.  So far from what we've seen he is a great teacher & we are so excited for another great school year.

Without their backpacks. (Parker wasn't loving all the pics I was taking.) 

Fair Fun

I finally uploaded the pics from my camera so I thought I'd post some of the things we did.

on August 17th (Travis's last day of Paternity Leave)  We thought it would be fun to get out of the house & go to the Davis County Fair.  We have gone every year since we moved to Layton & enjoy it.

 One of our favorite exhibits each year is the Creature Encounters.

I just loved this pic.  He was so excited that he could touch all the animals.

We sure had fun again this year & can't wait to go again next year.  

Olivia was officially 2weeks old this day & slept the whole time we were at the fair.  
Here is a pic of her at 2 weeks.  We sure love this girl!!
