We started the summer out right with FIREWORKS! Cadi hadn't been feeling well that day but the fireworks made her smile. It was a great night to be with family and watch the night sky light up!

Peter had a great night running around with his cousins and shooting the fireworks with his glow stick as they exploded in the sky. He is always posing funny, either being strong and showing his muscles or being a decide :)

First mountain picnic 2011

I love this picture of Ginny. She is quite adventurous and I don't know what to do about it sometimes.

Cadi is getting so big. She wanted to help Jeremy build the fire. She went around in between throwing rocks, and picked up little sticks for him. She may be the next pyro...

New Arrival!!

January 4th brought us our baby girl. Ginny was born at 10:55pm and weighed 9 pounds and 1 ounce. She was 21 1/2 inches long and came with a surprise of reddish hair. Cadi and Peter were so excited when we got home from the hospital and think she is just amazing. Peter loves to hold her and make sure she has her binki and blanket and any of the toys he loves. Cadi is now waiting for her to be able to do something with her. Three is quite the adjustment but it will come and we are in it together. We are so happy she is here.

Christmas at last

We spent this Christmas at home since traveling was not an option. We had fun Christmas Eve reading stories and setting stuff out for Santa. The kids were quite excited about seeing Santa so when we put them to bed they didn't stay. Every two minutes they got out to come and see Santa. Jeremy finally resorted to a Nelson family tradition which I am sure makes his dad proud. When Christmas morning came Jer and I were the most excited and got up at 6. Then we went in at 7 to get the kids up and Cadi didn't want to get out of bed. Once we got to the frontroom the excitement came back and it was great to see their eyes light up and the happiness on their faces. Peter made sure everyone had something to open. He opened most of Ginny's presents also. They loved everything and played with everything. Peter keeps saying that Santa forgot to drop something off, Ginny. We are still waiting for that present but hopefully soon enough.

Getting ready for Christmas

Cadi had a great time using Mommy's stamps and writing her first letter to Santa.

Peter enjoyed it too. Believe it or not this is his happy face sometimes, well at least when it comes to taking pictures.

Decorating the Christmas Tree for FHE was so much fun. The ornaments went by the color of light that matched and we used Daddy's star from his mission, a cardboard Crush star, what could be better. It was a great way to start off the Christmas season.


We also went camping in Yellowstone after my sister got home from her mission. It was a beautiful drive and the kids actually had fun getting there as well as being there. They loved looking for and seeing all the animals. But Cadinces favorite things were the big sticks (bare trees) that were everywhere. And the new phrase learned from this summers adventures is, "Family Vacation!"

Summertime Camping

This summer we went camping up Logan Canyon with some family. Peter was apprehensive about the dirt at first but after a while he was a little boy in the mountains getting dirty and enjoying the outdoors. Cadi loved it, she went to bed when the sun went down and played with the flashlight in the tent for quite a while before she fell alseep. Peter didn't adjust to tent sleeping so luckily it was only one night of camping this time.
