This Is Halloween

October was an eventful month. We did all the normal things. We watched General Conference. We colored camels for Grandma and Grandpa. We did preschool. And Clara was trouble (those are three nightlights I found in the washing machine). And we hung out. We cleaned up leaves. A lot of leaves. But if you ask…



Summer Lovin’

I guess now that it’s almost spring, I should probably catch up on last summer. Obviously the biggest part of our summer was Ian being born. That little man changed everything and it took us a while to get out of Survival Mode (hence no blog posts) but I think we might be there now…



Ian Grant

Now that Ian is 2 months old, I guess it’s time to write about his birth. My pregnancy with Ian wasn’t terrible. It was mostly just full of useless contractions and a lot of heartburn. I guess there was some morning sickness too. So basically, it felt like I was pregnant. Anyway, as with Malcolm…



Yay Springtime!

So a lot has happened since my last post. That means that this post will be a photo dump. Enjoy. Springtime was good to us, although we got more snow during the spring than we did during the winter. We spent a lot of time outside. Then we got an ice storm. We went to…



Malky the 4 year old

Malky is finally 4! It seems like he’s been waiting so long for his birthday, so I’m glad we could make it fun for him. We went to the aquarium, since he loves ocean animals. We actually gave him the choice between Chuck E. Cheese or the aquarium, and he passed over Chuck E. Cheese,…



Clara is 2!

This little girl is seriously one of my favorite little people. She is a ton of work, but she is also a ton of fun. She loves: ice, chocolate, popsicles, babies, owls, soft blankets, Paw Patrol, fruit, tickles, snuggles, baths, singing, jumping, books, and playing in the bathroom. She seriously spends about 25% of the…



2017

We started 2017 off nice and easy (except for the plane trip home. Yikes!). The worst part was saying goodbye to my parents, who left for an 18 month mission to Amman, Jordan. We miss them, but they are doing so much good! They are working to teach English, help immigrants, and start a Pathways…



A Wisconsin Christmas

Fact: December is all about Christmas. Also fact: Christmas is awesome. We got a couple weeks to do our own Christmas thing, and then we had a 2 1/2 week stay in Wisconsin. Basically, it was awesome. (Unlike my pictures, which are mostly crappy.) We got together with some of my family to do our…



Turkey Day

November, like pretty much anything past yesterday, is a blur to me. I do remember Clara having a massive naughty burst. Within the first couple days of November, she figured out that she could reach all the light switches, the ice maker on the fridge, open the fridge door, and open the oven doors. And…



Halloween Time

Since I’m back to playing catch-up, this will be all of October. At least what I remember of it. I think the weather was nice, mostly because we spent a lot of time outside. It was an exciting month for Clara. Not only did she say her first sentence (dum bum car), she also got…
