Carrie Is 30!

I am happy to announce that I am now 30! I had a wonderful birthday on the 28th. Josh took part of the day off work, which made me very happy, and he and my friends threw a neighborhood/family birthday party for me. You all know that I love to be with people so having a party was a perfect gift. I had a wonderful day. Josh brought me breakfast in bed. (It was my favorite - McDonalds.) We went out to lunch at Hameltons while my sister Connie watched the kids and made cookies for the party. Then Erica and I went to the beauty college and had facials for just $5. (I loved the facial, but I also love a bargain.) Then we spent the evening partying. Thank you to my family and friends for all of your love and support. I am who I am because of you. I love you!

My Boys

I couldn't resist posting this picture of Josh and Caleb. Aren't they cute? I don't think most men like dressing in matching cloths with their kids, but Josh loves it. He an Caleb are two peas in a pod.

NAI Lagoon Day

The company that Josh is now doing commercial real estate with, NAI Utah, had a Lagoon day on Friday. Even though the kids still aren't 100% we had a wonderful time with them. Luckily my aunt Merle took them for the evening so that Josh and I could get some time to do rides too. It is hard for us to grow up!

Caleb and Cara both had surgery on Monday August 13th. They both had their adenoids out and tubes put in their ears and Caleb had his tonsils out too. Needless to say it has been a rough week. Caleb knew that he was going to the hospital and he was going to have surgery, but he had no idea what that meant. He has been such a good sport about it all, but he hasn€™t wanted to do much this week. Cara has been a sport too. She has spent a lot of time sleeping this week, but has done well otherwise. I have some pictures I will add soon.

Ready for Church

Sometimes I think the kids are so cute when they are ready for church that I can't resist taking a picture.


Caleb wears a backpack with all of his chruch toys and snacks. Cara looks like a princess.

Getting a picture on Sunday morning is not an easy thing to do, but it is fun to see the kids in matching outfits.

Silly Cara

Our "Sweet Caroline" has become "Silly Caroline." She has always been a little silly, but she is becoming sillier all the time.
Cara Pull-Up
Wearing Caleb's pull-up is just one example of how silly she can be.
Cara Eat
She would rather wear her bowl than eat from it.
Cara Blanket
She insists on carrying her blanket first thing in the morning.
Cara Dall
She likes to push her doll around, but sometimes she just can't resist the temptation to sink her teeth into whatever is around.
Cara Tub
She loves the water and doesn't even mind when Caleb tortures her.
Cara Sleep
All of this silliness in a day can wear a girl out!
