Our new place

Let me tell you, it was not easy finding a good place to live in the bay area. If you want to be semi-close to San Fran and in a family friendly and safe area, you are certainly going to pay. After much searching and thanks to the help of my wonderful mom, we were able to find this cool house. We are at the end of a quiet culdesac in a beautiful part of Walnut Creek. If you are ever in the area you better come and see us.

The boys' room

We decided that this move would be a good excuse to buy bunk beds and redo the boy's room. We randomly decided on rocket ships and this is what we ended up with.

Happy Halloween

San Francisco here we come

So if you haven't heard, we're moving to the bay. Michael got offered an awesome job in downtown SF. We are sad to leave friends and family in Utah, but we're looking forward to an adventure in this beautiful city.


3 boys, 3 birthdays, 3 weeks, and way too many presents.

Bear Lake

We took a an awesome vacation with my family to Bear Lake. The highlights were jet skiing, swimming, amazing bbqs, raspberry shakes, smores, foosball and just being with family. My wonderful sister Heather stayed for an extra week and we had a great time being together.

Thanks for the new outfits Grandma Cami

Do you really have to ask?

I can't tell you how often people ask me where Ethan gets his hair from. Maybe they think that Michael had curly blonde hair before it turned dark and went bald. Hmmm.

The last few months

Michael quit his job right before Christmas and he is enjoying doing a little consulting work and getting his business going. We love having him at home more often and eating three meals together a day. He works so hard for our family.
Me- I love being at home with my boys. They keep me really busy but when I get a chance I'm working on writing my grandfather's biography and am also training for another triathlon in April.
Anthony is so much fun. When he isn't dressing up as a knight or super hero he is coloring. We are getting quite the collection of his art on our magnet board.

Ethan is a busy little 18 month old. He follows his brother around and does everything he does. He loves treats, loves yelling "NO" and is full of laughter and affection.

He's getting some curls. I hope they last.
Another one of Ethan's favorite pastimes... attacking the perpetrator as mom vacuums.

We had an awesome valentines up in Salt Lake. We dropped the kids off at the babysitter and headed to La Cucina Toscana for a fancy and wonderful dinner (so fancy that they charged us $7.50 for flat water... we now know what that means). We then went to the symphony and stayed the night at the Marriot. We had such a good time. I sure love this guy.

The symphony at Abravanel Hall was so beautiful.

We decided to move the week before Christmas so things were a little crazy but we were unpacked in time for the big day. We enjoyed Christmas at home with our little family and then went to Michael's parents for a yummy traditional english dinner with yorkshire pudding.

Anthony hand painted all of his Christmas gifts. It took him 2 1/2 hours but he didn't stop until every corner of the sleighs were painted.

We went to my sister-in-laws vacation home in St. George for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed nice weather, tennis, shopping, and a super yummy dinner.
Wrestling Uncle Rick. My boys can't get enough of him.

Only my mother would get coordinating aprons for the girls. She' the best.
