Disney on Ice

For Carter's Birthday we decided to take him to Disney On Ices instead of buying more toys!!! He was so excited to see his "girlfriend" Ariel, Minnie, Mickey and all his favorite characters. Of course Chase and I vowed we wouldn't buy anything for him and he left with more than he could carry...but that's what birthdays are for right?!?! We spent the rest of the day in SLC shopping, eating and spending time with Carter's Grandpa Cutler. All in all a great day and a wonderful way to end the birthday celebrations.

An Exciting End to the Birthday!

On Carter's third birthday we did everything he wanted to do and even took an extra trip to the ER!! After a fun filled day with out sweet birthday boy, we were settling down to watch a movie when Carter tripped and fell. He smacked his head on our media center and we quickly headed off to the ER...well Chase and Carter did and I followed with Ava. Luckily my parents were around to take Ava back home and the three of us had an exciting evening at the hospital. Carter was the talk of the ER, since he was flirting with all the nurses and doing kung fu moves while he was getting his 3 stitches. Needless to say he was a little rock star and didn't cry once, although it scares me a bit that he is so comfortable at the hospital. All I am hoping for is to not make it back for 4 stitches on his 4th birthday!!

Ava's Photo Shoot

A few months ago, I got a call from a lady from the company JJCOLE asking if I might be interested in letting Ava model. I was dumbfounded!!! I mean I think she's adorable, but I'm her mom (doesn't every mom think their kids are the cutest?)!!! I agreed and later that week we were at her photo shoot, I was dying! I promised I would post the pics, so here they are. Apparently they really liked her and they chose her for the packaging of the product, it's supposed to come out end of this year, I can't wait!!!
She did amazing, although I'm sure they might only get a few to work with! Another proud mommy moment! It was a great experience!

Our very first 5K!!!

So, we actually attempted our very first 5K! Due to some coaxing from a dear friend that we just reconnected with, we managed to somehow end up at a local race early one Saturday morning. Chase ran and did awesome, and I walked with my dad and the two kiddos, I think we doubled Chase's time....but I FINISHED!!! (Never thought that would happen!) All in all, it was a great experience, even if I came in last!

Ava's Blessing Day

Ava was blessed on Sunday, what an amazing experience for our little family! We were so lucky to be surrounded by the people we love the most, and for everyone that traveled so far, we thank you so much!
What a beautiful day, and a beautiful blessing thanks to Ava's daddy and Father in Heaven. I am so grateful for such an amazing husband that can share in the joy of blessing his family. I am grateful for the continual love we feel from our families as this amazing new addition has come into our lives! It truly was a day that I felt like my whole family was there, although physically we were not able to be together..and I am grateful for a Heavenly Father that continues to bless my life with such tender mercies. Thank you again to everyone, those there and those that couldn't make, we are just so grateful for family and I am especially grateful for my little family! I am one lucky wife and mother!

Ava's Blessing Pictures

Once again I ventured in taking my own pictures of Ava, although it is much easier on the pocket book i don't think im too shabby at it either! These were taken just a week or so before her actual blessing! So sad but i already look back and think she is growing so fast!
