And Baby makes 5!

It has been entirely too long since I last posted on here! I am ashamed. And I know that I say that every time I take a break, but it doesn't seem to change anything! I figured having a baby was probably a good and interesting bit of information to blog about, so here I am!
In October of this year we will be adding another little princess to our growing family. We are so excited (especially P1 and Mommy...daddy and P2 are slowly getting used to the idea!). Going along with the P theme, we decided to continue and this baby girl will be named Paisley Lauren. This will be the first time that I am 6-9 months pregnant during the summer, and I can whole-heartedly say that I am not looking forward to one minute of it. It has been my easiest pregnancy so far, and I have still been able to continue teaching my circuit training classes 2-3 times a week. I am 20 weeks right now and hoping that I will be able to continue doing all the things that I love and enjoy.
On another note, my baby girl is going to start kindergarten in August! And little Bubs is starting preschool! It seems so surreal to me! P1 is so excited and can't stop talking about all the things she will do when she starts school in the fall. She is one smart cookie!
Our family is in the midst of our first T-Ball season! Lance is coaching P1's team and P2 is the team "Mascot" who has a uniform and sits on the bench. Daddy lets him bat last during each line-up and if we don't have enough players, he even lets him play the field! He is going to be a good player when he is finally old enough! I love going to their games and seeing how excited they are to play and be with their friends.
We are looking forward to a full packed summer with weddings and trips and getting ready for baby P to come! Hopefully I will find some time in my busy schedule to write on here a couple times...but let's not hold our breath!

Christmas fun

Just some fun pictures from our Christmas endeavors. We also got to go down to San Jose to watch cousin Kyle play for BYU. The kids had a blast, minus the rain in the last 2 minutes. Lots of trips to see Santa this year. It was so fun to see their wonderment and awe. I love being a mommy at Christmas.

Random Pictures Peyton

Here are some pictures of our little princess. She is the light of our lives always having something witty to say. She cares so much for other people and makes friends wherever she goes. I love just sitting and having a random conversation with her and know that I can't be surprised anymore by anything that comes out of her mouth. She loves to learn and is willing to do so at any given opportunity. She will sing all day long and loves to go to her gymnastics and ballet classes. We love you our little pooks!

Random pictures Parker

Here are some fun pictures of my baby boy the past couple weeks. We love his cheesy grin and happy face. He constantly pushes our buttons but makes us laugh all at the same time. He is such a laid back, easy going kid that just goes with the flow. He loves to play ball and right now his favorite is baseball (tis the season!) He makes friends very easily and loves to share but still has his bully side. I think that comes with his size. We love everything about him! Good and bad.

What do we have here?

Yes, it is true! I am blogging! Now don't get too excited. I am only writing this time. No pictures. I don't know if there is a way to upload pictures on to here from my iPad, but if there is, please let me know and I will do this more often! (maybe there is an app for that). Nothing too elaborate has been happening in our little family. Just normal summer time stuff. The kids are getting so big and fun! Parker constantly keeps us on our toes and makes us laugh. Peyton continues to surprise is daily with the knowledge that is in that brain of hers. I swear, I don't know where she learns half the things she knows! She is continuing to go to school 1 day a week for the summer and will start her last year of preschool in September. Parker will simultaneously start potty training then, and from what his interest level seems to be, it should be a piece of cake. Let's all say a little prayer for me! In may we went to Disneyland and had a great time (again, if I can figure this blogging on my iPad thing I will post pics). June we went to a lot of baseball games for Lance's cousin who pitches for the Giants AAA team. This month we went to 6 flags with our season passes and have been to the lake and pool several times. The kids are much better with their love of water this year. We just got home from a 3 day Family Reunion for the Lively side of the family at June Lake, CA. If you haven't been there, GO! It is absolutely stunning and the weather is perfect! While there, Parker took a nosedive over his handle bars on his strider bike (which he loves) while going too fast down a steep hill and scraped his arm and face, chipping his front tooth in the process. Being the dental assistant that I am, I FLIPPED OUT! He seems to be fine, and nothing too major (thank goodness it is a baby tooth!) but we are going tomorrow to have a composite filling put on it. No way is my child walking around with a chipped front tooth for 4 years! Anyway, that is the jest of our life these days! Trying to stay busy and having fun doing it!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here are a few fun pictures of my little Valentines on Valentine's day. I uploaded them in reverse order. Sorry!

This kid is always happy when he has food in his hand!

How could he not have my heart with that face?

P1 getting ready to sing to us at her school party. Such a cute little "love bug"!

Here are my little Valentine's on Valentine's Day! Getting ready to go to P1's preschool party.

The love of my Forever

Today is our 5 year anniversary. It has definately been the best 5 years of my life! Wonderful, loving husband, who always makes me feel like I am the only girl in the world, and two of the most beautiful children Heavenly Father ever created. I feel so blessed everyday of my life. I know there is more that I can do for my family and I pray everyday that I become the wife and mother that my family needs me to be.
Now, on to Lance...He is the best thing. I am sure that most people would say that we are always nagging at each other, but that is how we work. It is amazing how much he compliments me. We work so well together and work everyday at getting better and better. He works non-stop for our little family to be happy and healthy. Seriously. Sometimes he works as much as 80 hours in a week. But he always seems to find time for us. He is a worthy priesthood holder who puts his family first in all things. I am so grateful to have him in my life and I can't wait to see what the next 5 years bring us. Happy Anniversary Honey. I love you.
