Here's the rest

I hate getting pictures taken. With all the boys, it's always super stressful. I have to figure out outfits that will coordinate, find a time to schedule so that we won't be interupting someone's nap, get everyone dressed, get to the picture place before everyone gets dirty, and then getting everyone to sit, and smile at the same time. It makes me exhausted just thinking about it. Luckily after all that effort, we got some great pictures this time around! Here are some of my favorites.

Multiply and replenish the earth!

Before your eyes pop out of their sockets, No we are not pregnant. The title of this post is to acknowledge that we have in the past 8 years made three perfect little boys. We got this picture taken the other day and I am surprised that DeAnne has not posted it yet.

The past two days DeAnne and the boys have been meeting me for lunch. It's been really fun being able to spend an hour with them in the middle of the day.

This past week I have made a conscious effort to put my wife’s needs first and my efforts have paid many dividends! I went to the Midgley’s sealing last week and although I’m sure they don’t remember what was said, I remember the sealer gavethem(all of us) some great and wise counsel. He said that just as you only see one of you and a never ending number of your spouse when you look into the mirror, we should treat our spouses like there are a million of them and one of us. Selflessness is the key to a great marriage!

Life is great right now! I have been enjoying every minute!

Just Me And The Boys

With the addition of our second son Dawson to our family last year, I'm completely outnumbered. At times it seem like life is just one big noisy, dirty, wrestling match! But really I couldn't be more happy! Justin and Dawson are so much fun (most of the time!) It's been so fun to watch them grow and develop. In an attempt to share our stories and pictures with those of you who are interested, I'm starting my first blog. My plan is to keep you updated on what's going on in our lives, but I reserve the right to slack off every now and then! After all I do have a 3 year old and a 1 year old!
