Val and Max, this is for you......

Dear Val and Max,

We miss watching Cookie Monster and Elmo Gucks with you:

We miss eating Goldfish with you:

We miss shooting hoops with you:

We miss watching Princess and the Frog with you:

We miss rocking and swinging and sliding down the slide with you:

But most of all, we miss you're dad's short shorts:

We love you and can't wait to see you in a few weeks!

Tait's Basketball Games in Washington

This is a post that I REALLY should have done a long time ago! At the beginning of March, Eli and Grady were so lucky and got to go up to Eli's little brother Tait's basketball State Tournament in Washington. Eli and Grady were both so excited to go and both had so much fun watching basketball and hanging out with Amma and Papa. And since the least I could do is post some pictures to tell them both thank you (and that we are glad you made it back to the hotel safe Papa at 3 in the morning when Grady was in great need of chocolate milk), here they are:

This is actually from when Grady and I went up to visit and went to Tait's basketball game. Grady loves his Papa!

They got Meridian Trojan shirts. Grady still loves to wear his hoop shirt.

I guess he couldn't get enough going to games all day??!!

Cute, sweet Amma teaching Grady the thumbs up

Grady loves airplanes, or he was just really sad to leave....Tait's team ending up taking 2nd. Thank you to all who helped take care of my boys! They were so happy to be able to see everyone and watch Tait!

Our NEW News

We've had so many big changes in our family this last little while, so I thought I should probably update what has been going on with us lately.

Back in November Eli found out that he got a job as a State Farm agent in Salt Lake County. He won't know exactly were until sometime after June 1st, but it WILL be in Salt Lake County. We are so excited for this next step in our life, and I am so proud of Eli for ALL his hard work and late nights, he has had many and there will be many more to come. With that, he has been training which includes traveling quite frequently to Phoenix. He gets to enjoy the 70 degree weather while we have 20 degree weather. We miss him TONS while he is gone, but we have a lot of help and support from others which has been such a blessing!

Also, back in November we found out that baby #2 is on the way, due in July 2010. We are so excited for a new addition to our family!

Grady is getting so big, and I really can't wait to see how he will interact with the new baby, it will be interesting! Right now he will give my tummy kisses and then hit it?! He is talking up a storm, which is so fun, and right now his obsession is basketball, he loves the Jazz, the Huskies and the Cougars. He puts on quite the show when any of the above are on. He is too much fun!

Also, Grady and I recently went up to Washington to visit family and had so much fun! (I didn't take a lot of pictures, because I am horrible and taking them, but I will post the ones I did take soon!) We were so sad to leave and can't wait to see everyone again soon!

Basically that catches you up on us, for now!
