Thank You!!

Thanks to everyone for their thoughtful phone calls, gifts and text's yesterday on my birthday! I feel so blessed to have such amazing friends and family that go out of their way to make me feel special... Nothing goes unnoticed. I am so far behind on all my Thank You's from when I had Taz... I have an endless list of people who deserve Thanks, but want everyone to know how grateful I am for all that you do for me and my family... Hugs and Loves, a

(a special Thank You to my Husband who made my 26th Birthday a very memorable one... You're the best & I love you always!)

Taz's 6 week Photos!

Just a few pictures of the little Taz man... He is a genetic duplicate of his Daddy, soooo handsome! a(I've had a couple people ask me where I got the green "boy" bin... so, a couple years back I saw it in a LA Babystyle store displaying their stuffed animals... I begged the saleslady for months to sell one to me... after a couple trips back to the store she finally caved and it's now home to my recycle newspapers.. we wont tell Taz that his first picture was taken in a trash bin!)

Happy Birthday Wife!

Pack your bags
You're on your way
To celebrate soon
Your 26th birthday!

Usually I'm a loser
When it comes to gifts
I'm a last minute shopper
Who scrambles and sifts

But this year I actually
Used a brain cell or two
To plan something special
For my number one - YOU!

This year instead
Of flowers or clothes
You'll be looking at Vegas
From hotel windows!

You'll be staying at Paris
In a room with a view
Relaxing and shopping
With the man who loves YOU!

So pack your bags
You're on your way
To Sin City baby
Next Wed-nes-day!

Happy Birthday Amb!

Your Mystery Lover!

Quick Update!

Yes, we are alive and most of us are well.... Tyler has been blessed with a NASTY case of Strep Throat for the past 3 days and it hasn't been fun for any of us!! Amazingly he is just starting to feel well enough to abandon us for a "Brothers Reunion" this weekend... Crazy how that works out, huh?? All kidding aside, we are glad that he is finally on the mends!!

I had an awesome Mothers Day... The kids (and Tyler) made me breakfast in bed, brought me Lilies (my favorite) and Tyler game me my third (and hopefully final) ring band with a blue sapphire for little Taz! (Over the past year, Tye has given me stacking ring bands that represent each kid with a pink or blue stone...I LOVE them!!) The kids each made me a necklace at school...They are so adorable...I'm not sure which I enjoy more, the gifts or how excited they are when they give them to me..I will cherish those gifts and memories forever! Thanks guys!

German pancakes in Bed!( Yes, there was some sort of pen war just prior to this picture and it looks like Bos lost!)
My flowers! Love them!Brooklyn reading to the boys!Can you tell how happy Brooklyn was that I wanted to take her picture? Wow!Little Taz man!Silly faces!Why does it seem like Taz is in his car seat in every picture?? I promise we do let me out....occasionally!

Some of my favorite memories of my college days were zipping around Provo on Tye's little red scooter... funny how eight years later it's the kids favorite thing to do when we visit Utah!

Crazy how in 12 short years we'll (at least we hope to) be buying Brooklyn a little red scooter to zip around Provo!

Nate and cute Cousin William!

(These pictures were taken by and stolen from Nicole, Thanks Nicole!! I was watching from inside too nervous to be involved)
