Our little Peanut

We just wanted to announce that we are expecting our second baby. YEAH!!!!!

I am 9 weeks along and am due on March 4th. The baby is 8 weeks in this ultrasound photo, the heart beat is very strong and everything seems to be going great. The baby was a big surprise to us as we were not on fertility like we were with Jaron. All in the Lord's timing :)

So Jaron had been doing really well with recognizing his letters and their sounds. On Saturday Aaron should him how to spell JARON and so Jaron copied it and did a really good job as you can see. The "N" looks a little like an "M" , but hey he's only 3 and that was his first time. He likes to trace letters when he is in the mood and is getting better. I love watching him learn and grow, it is so amazing.

Magic Show

Ok so our Library has a lot of fun things going on this summer to keep the kids active and out of the heat. So on Fridays they do a little show for the kids. I hadn't been able to take Jaron much because fo watching other kids a lot. But I finally got to take him to the magic show on Friday and he loved it. Of course I forgot my camera, but oh well. The guy did a good job, Jaron really liked this floating ball that he had and the disappearing egg trick. He did'nt however like the trick where he was going to "cut" off a boys hand. It was a little much for all the kids. But Jaron broke down crying when the magician left the stage for a minute, with the boy waiting to see what was going to happen. They then played the song " All by myself" and Jaron just started crying. It was so sad and so funny. The magician came out and "cut" the coys hand and of course nothing happened. Jaron was still a little concered. The boy walked be and I asked if I could show Jaron his hand to show him that it was OK. Jaron was sooooooooooo confused it was just funny. But he still really liked it and told his Daddy all about it that night, of course I had to interpret a few things for him, but it was lots of fun.

The 3 legged race

Yeah Aaron and I got smoked by Shauna and Ashley. In case you couldn't tell, they are the blur out in front of us when we are right in front of the camera.

The fireman who gave us the ribbon said that Aaron could have caught up with Shauna and Ashley but I started to trip up as you can see and so we got 3rd place. We don't know who got 2nd place, but we sure had some fun.

4th of July

This slide show is from our weekend in Beatty with Mom, Papa,Shauna, Ashley and Alan's family. We had so much fun. The kids got to ride on the newest fire truck and as you can see, it was just our family. Aaron and I got 3rd place in the 3 legged race, but Shauna and Ashley got first by a lot. They were so fast. You can see them in the next video, they are so far ahead of everyone. We all participated in the egg toss and I got to catch the egg on my nail, to of cousre it broke. Jaron was only one his age (from our family) to do the watermelon eating contest, he gained 1 pound I think. Brandon and Sydney did their age group and Brandon won, he gained 2 pounds. Shauna, Ashley and Cyndi did the watermelon eating contest for the adults and they did pretty darn well. Shauna was just enjoying the watermelon and helping Ashley eat as much as she could. Unfortunatley Ashley didn't win, but she did gain 4 pounds after loosing some of it :(
The guys and Ashley went paintballing the next morning and had a ton of fun, they were all very sore by the end of the day though. They weren't even up for taking any more pictures. We hope you all had a great 4th of July.

Jaron's Muscles

Jaron likes to show off his muscles, so here they are for all to see. He will tell my how strong he is and then ask if I want to feel his muscles. He just cracks me up all the time.
