Katie Isabel Lefler

Well, our little baby girl has finally arrived and we are doing great. She arrived late August and was just a few days late. The recovery has been a little harder this time, as I hemorrhaged about two hours after delivery, but things are going much better now. The older kids LOVE having Katie around and want to kiss her and hold her all the time. Honestly, they are soo much help. They bring me what I need and have really stepped up to take up the extra slack where I've had to let go a little. My wonderful husband has also been AMAZING through the whole thing.
We have been soo blessed with this sweet little baby in our lives and are so thankful that she is here safe and sound.

November catch up!

One of their favorite pastimes is to make a "cushion tent" so we made an awesome one, got the lantern out and played games was sooo fun!

Halloween trick or treating with friends, Main Street in American Fork.

Seriously the highlight has been going to Tennessee to visit my parents on their mission. We went to the Grand Ole Opry while we were there and got to see Taylor Swift, Dolly Parton, and Trace Atkins along with many other great performers. It was soo fun. It was amazing to see my parents and spend time with them, but SOOO hard to leave. They are doing great!

Life just wouldn't be right if all my kids hadn't broken a bone! Allee fell down out terribly steep stairs and got a compound fracture. She got soo much attention for that bright pink cast...she loved it!
Life is good in our neck of the woods!

Austin, Morgan, Allee,
Evee & Abigail on a trip to This is the Place

We have been trying to keep the kids busy this summer and it seems to be making things a little better so far. The kids are having fun. We've been on a couple hikes, a couple bike rides, to Young Living Lavendar farms (where I fell and broke my camera), This is the Place, The Hogle Zoo and lots of picnics. I also included a picture of both of the boys at the dance festival from the end of the school year.

The kids on the mini train

Austin was in "Time out" in the schoolhouse at This is the Place. They were demonstrating what the naughty children had to do when they got in trouble. I think it made Austin think a little about how he should behave. I think I might start trying this at home....

Morgan as humpty dumpty for the dance festival at school.

The "Mad" Scientist

Austin is a mad scientist for his school opera this year. He walked into the house yesterday after the dress rehearsal and this is what I saw. Those of you who know Shane, can you see the resemblance?

R.M. & losing teeth!

Here is the best smile EVER! Morgan noticed his tooth was loose and he had it out within about 3 minutes. No crying or fear...just pure excitement and lots of giggles.

That's right, R.M. stands for Richard Marx..."Right here waiting" ringing a bell??? Well we went to see him in concert again. This was the 4th time we have seen him and he was GREAT AGAIN!!! He seriously gives the best show!

Lisa & Bart before the show...too much excitement!

Favorites from 2009

The kids with Max Hall at Tiffany's Wishing Mile

So, I admit to being a pretty pathetic blogger the last several months. Last night I got a text from my sweet niece that was not so sweet. She totally called me on my lack of posting. I promised her a post today, so I decided to choose some of my favorite pictures/happenings from the last year.

Preschool Halloween Party

Austin with the Baseball witch at Gardner Village

Pillow Fun. As a kid, you get creative to pass the time in the car!

Morgan and Lizzy...It was a big move to get a pet, but we sure love her!

Allee with Tyler. We had lots of fun adventures last summer, my kids spent a lot of time getting to know the older kids. They made it so fun!

My Dad's wagon & the horses he trained to pull it. I have to say, I got a little teary choosing this picture. The 4th of July in Fillmore is one of my very favorite things and the next two years it will be much different without my parents. They are on a mission in Tennessee. It is exactly where they should be, it just seems strange without them.

Timp Hike, another summer adventure!

Allee is caught singing A LOT, however, she's not caught with the camera very often. She was singing her little heart out getting ready for her recital.

Of course, Disneyland...not much else to say. What a great year!
