The McDonalds come for a visit

My parents, my brother Jason and his lovely wife Sarah and their youngest boy James(from Australia). We had them for a nice long week. It was awesome. We kept it low key. Here are just a few highlights from their trip. We also went to temple square but i can't seem to find those pictures right now. Cheesy quote, but, "All because 2 people fell in love" and another huge one is, All because these 2 decided to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I can't imagine where i would be with out the gospel. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Jason and Sarah and James, missing 3 kids. It was so great having them here with us.

My good looking crew. With one on the way.

The boys went 4-wheeling

We went to the pumpkin patch..always fun. And amazing weather!!

Thanks for coming mom, dad, Jason, Sarah and James(missing--Brooklyn, Jacob, Charlotte). We love you guys and miss you!

9 years

For our 9 year anniversary, we went on an over night, back in September. I got this awesome deal on a hotel. Its crazy to think 9 years and almost 4 kids later. I'm still crazy for this kid. We all have our ups and downs, but we have also grown so much. He is my best friend. I'm so grateful for him and our relationship. One thing, we take pride our ability to talk about everything with each other. You name it, we probably have talked about it. I'm so blessed to have him. We were celebrating his birthday and anniversary. We tried to do somethings that we did when we dated. We went lots of drives; Utah has some beautiful scenic drives. We went to Bridal Vail falls. We walked around SLC. It was so enjoyable and relaxing. Especially being pregnant i didn't want to do anything crazy(I was 28 weeks pregnant). In SLC, we sat and listened to some guy play the bag pipes on the corner and people watched. We had an amazing time!

back tracking, Claytons Birthday

Clayton had his Birthday September 1st...I realized I'm behind, so one post a day should catch me up with out feeling overwhelmed. Crazy enough, i found this shirt at walmart. Clayton thought it was the coolest thing ever. These are Clayton's 2 best friends at Clayton's party. I babysit both of them. They get a long so well. We had family and some neighbor kids come over for cake and ice cream.

Clayton opening presents.


And of course the cake. Sometimes i make them and sometimes, you just have to buy them :)
