First Things First!

Right now I should be packing up so we can leave in the morning for Salt Lake, but I find that blogging is more fun.

We are leaving tomorrow to make our way to Utah. First we are stopping in Las Vegas to meet our newest niece and cousin. Kelly's brother Jim and his wife had their 3rd daughter on Monday. Little Tessa Zierse is cousin number 16 for my kids. We are excited to see Jim and Emily for a quick break in the drive.

On Saturday, we will be attending our 10 year High School reunion. How crazy, ten years. I can't believe it. It will be fun to be in Salt Lake for a few weeks and see our family and friends. We have some fun things planned. While we are there, cousin number 17 will be born. Kelly's youngest sister is having a baby any day now. It will be lots of fun to see all the cousins and grandparents.

Here are some recent pictures to enjoy.

Here is our little Katydid. The only place to contain her is in her highchair. We pile up the tray with toys and snacks, and then mom can get something done.

Here are the boys with two of their very best buds. We have some great friends in our ward and we did a swap of tending kids so we could each enjoy a night out. On our night to tend we made cookies and had a great time. Our kids have so much fun together.

Payton and Carson enjoying the beaters. Well Payton is anyway.

After we made cookies, the kids wanted to pull out the "red bed." That is what our kids call the hide-a-bed because it has red sheets on it. Anyway, they thought it was fun to eat their cookies and watch a movie on the red bed.

Now that Katelyn is taller and pulling herself up, it is time to lower the crib mattress. Kelly was working on it and all kids crawled under to help. Katelyn was even in on the action.

Kelly was showing the kids how to do a handstand and thought it would be a lot of fun to do it with Carson on his back. They are both little monkeys! Plus it is a nice shot of my 3 laundry baskets to put away. Laundry never seems to cease!

I have a very creative friend who has taught me some cool things. First she taught me how to make bows for Katelyn. Now she has taught me to make these super cute quilts. I just finished my second one today. Thanks Bridgette, they are so cute. I am so excited to be finished and see the end result. Thanks to Tifany too, who let me take over her kitchen and sewing machine to finish. It pays to have great friends!

That about does it for me. I will give an update of our fun time in Utah!

I didn't realize Lyenna was due any day now. My mom told me that Jim and Emily had their baby. Tell them all to start blogs so we can find out about these things! Have a fun trip!

Have fun in S.L. Give Jim and Emily a big hug from us. Next time we drive through Vegas we'll have to stop by and say Hi.

Hey Megan cute page! Have fun in Utah! I learned a new way of making bows I'll have to show you sometime.

The Meier Family said...

Hi Megan! I can't believe how big your kids are, how can that be? You have the cutest family and such a cute blog. I'm still learning how to do this, but I'm so excited that we have a way to keep in touch! Tell your family Hi!

Have a great time! Wish we were there to see you too! Lyenna better not have that baby while her mom is gone...I think Patti's worried about that!
