The Project

Tonight I have enjoyed the last bit of my favorite thing... Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream and have recommitted myself to Project Fitness. (I really need to come up with a better name) I, along with my sweetheart who promises to do it with me, have a goal in mind. When the project took an unexpected lapse last week, due to a house full of people, my crappy neck sprain and then the head cold from... somewhere, I am feeling tonight, congested, tired, sore throat, slightly coughing, itchy watery eyes and yet still... squishy. And so tomorrow, it begins again.

The Project Update

I am still committed, I promise!!! But after having family stay at my house for 4 days (while Matthew was in Salt Lake for 4 days, FYI) and having the preschool open house Thursday, Dad's 70th Birthday party Friday, the BYU game Saturday, the Baby blessings Sunday and Labor Day picnic Monday... somehow during all that I did something to my neck and haven't been able to turn left or right for 3 days... so here I sit, P90X on hold. When the project recommences, I will let you know.

Labor Day 2010

What would a long 3 day weekend be without a picnic in the park. We went to Nelson's Grove in Orem and enjoyed warm sun, a light breeze and of course, a baseball game.

Uncle Steve and Alexis got to feed Talmage

Baseball with the boys!
Labor Day usually signals the end of summer, but we'll still enjoy family time, good food and of course a baseball game, even if it has to be indoors.

Sweet Blessing Day

We were so blessed to have our families all here and bless our babies. They were so sweet, not a fuss or cry from either of them. Matthew gave the sweetest blessings. I always love these days, feeling the spirit so strong and knowing there are those beyond the veil watching and attending, what a special day.

Talmage William
Kirtlyn Rose
Our little Family (got to love Spanish Fork wind)
My beautiful boys
After the blessings, we all packed up lunch and went to the park. The weather was beautiful and we absolutely enjoyed the sun. Yummy food, yummy dessert and of course, a football game broke out on the grass.

All together
Grandpa Steven and Grandma Sharon
Ari, Cameron, Paige, Lauren and Grandpa Field
Becky and Missy

Aunt Missy didn't let the babies out of her sight while she was in town.

Matthew and I sincerely thank all our family and friends for supporting us this day. We are so grateful for these two little miracles, they are here, healthy and strong and we couldn't have made it through without all of you.

Thank you.

Grandpa Steve Turns 70!!!

My sweet 93 year old Grandma Nelda has been quoted saying "I never thought I'd be the mother of a 70 year old"... Well, September 9, 2010, her dear "Stephan" did just that. We were able to throw our dad a birthday party on the 3rd and celebrate his "youth" and his posterity of 6 kids, 24 grandchildren and still only having "sun bleached" sideburns.
Steve and Sharon's grandchildren made for a beautiful family picture.
All our siblings together, it's been a few years!
Here are a few great shots from the party!
