Once again this poor blog has been neglected!
A lot has been going on this year. 

Brock had his Basque dance winter fest performance in January.
He seems to get better each time.
We have had some issues with him at school! He is getting too bored and then starts to disrupt others.
I called a meeting between the principal, teacher, and myself. I have had an issue with this since the beginning of school and I wanted to sit down and figure out how Brock could be more challenged, so he wasn't getting in trouble. There were several incidents that led up to the meeting, but I will spare you the details. So the plan seemed to be working until last week and Brock got in trouble again! Came to find out he ran out of challenging things to do, so he got in trouble. I am so frustrated and I can't wait for this school year to be over. On a positive note we signed him up for baseball and that should start the beginning of April.

Jaylee Bug is a TORNADO!
She is a little spit fire that I can't seem to keep up with.
She has a sassy little personality and is starting the terrible 2's!
Her vocabulary has expanded so much over the last couple of months.
The other day Jason said something was awesome and she has proceeded to walk around and say
AWESOME but kind of sings it with a break between the awe and the some.
I can't keep anything clean with her around, because she goes right behind me and makes 10 more messes!
Yesterday before church I had her in a cute St. Patrick's Day skirt and shirt and she got into a bottle of paint. 
It was all over her hands the shirt and a little on the skirt. I was already running late, so this made it even worse. She is so stinkin' cute that I can't seem to stay mad at her too long! I always find myself scooping her up and giving her tons of kisses. 

I am so thankful for both of my kids and their sweet spirits and personalities that they bring to our family.
I haven't wrote too much on this pregnancy, but I am so thankful for this sweet little boy that will be joining our family soon. My pregnancy has been pretty good. I haven't really been sick from the pregnancy, but I am going on my 6th week with a nasty head, sinus thing. I have also started to get light headed and some braxton hicks. I have so much to get done before the baby is born and I am running out of energy fast. Hopefully it will all pull together. Other than that things are going good.

Here are some pictures of the kiddos!

The end of 2010!

One of my goals this year is to be a better blogger with my family blog.
First of all I need to some up the end of 2010.

I am going to start with Brock's Baptism!
I am a complete slacker and forgot the camera, so the only
pictures I have are the ones I took for the invitations.
We had a great day. Of course you can't come to the baptism without
a good laugh. I am not sure if I should blame this on my pregnancy or just that I am a blonde. 
I will go with my pregnancy. Anyway after Brock was baptized I was like, "Crap I forgot the towels!"
What a dork! So Scott had to run and get the towels. In the mean time Jason forgot his underwear and his brother and dad ran to get that. Needless to say it was a longer baptism then it should have been.
Brock had asked his uncles to talk at his Baptism. Uncle Scott and uncle Jeremy gave great talks to help Brock out on his new journey in life. Jeremy used a baseball analogy that was perfect for Brock as he talked about the steps you need to take in like to reach each base and then to return to our Father in Heaven.
I appreciated all the family that took time out of their busy lives to share this special day with Brock.
I can't believe he is already this old.


We spent Thanksgiving at home this year!
Well actually we spent it at my parents house.
Again I forgot my camera, so I have no pictures to show for it.
I am sure my mom has some that I can add onto her later.
Nothing too exciting happened we just spent the day cooking, eating, and playing card games.

Mike and Tonia's Sealing
Our next big event was our trip to Alamo and St. George for Jason's brother Mike and his wife Tonia's sealing. I was able to take a couple of days off before Christmas break in order to make it to the temple to watch this cute family be sealed together forever.

What a great experience it was to watch from another perspective. 
The last time I was at a sealing was for my family.
I can't explain the joy and happiness that felt my heart and
I watched their sweet little children walk into the room.
They were all so sweet and looked like little angels.
I am so happy that I was able to be apart of this family's special day!

I was also able to see my aunt Jodi and her daughter Jill while we were in St. George!
Jodi was so good to watch my children for me so I could attend the temple.
My kids loved hanging out with her. They didn't want to leave.
She bought them play dough and Jaylee thought it was the coolest thing ever,
because that stuff isn't allowed in my house.
We ate dinner with all of Jason's family that was able to attend and Jodi came along with us
to the Texas Roadhouse. Again Jodi was a hit as both of my kids thought they had to be all over her 
during dinner.

We then left and headed to Alamo to spend a few days with Jason's family since we wouldn't be able to make it back after Christmas.  I love how laid back in is there. I seriously didn't get dressed before noon each day except the last day. I was able to get glitter toes done. I love them and they still look fabulous. All the cousins hung out and of course I had to throw a craft in there.
I asked my FIL, Gary to cut us out these cute snowmen that
I saw at a girl's house in Alamo. Thanks Jenna for your pattern!
They turned out so cute!

I also was able to make my MIL, Annette and my mom a picture of the temple.
They were like the big one's from Desert Book.
I love how they turned out and I also ordered myself one.
I will post some pictures when I get some taken.

 We were home for Christmas. Jason and I stayed up a little too late the night before.
I got to bed at 3:30am and Jason I think was somewhere around 4ish. 
Brock is the best kid! I can't believe how much patience he has on Christmas morning.
He wanted Jaylee to sleep with him, so after she finally fell asleep around 1:00am I put her in bed with Brock. Christmas morning her brought her into my bed around 7:00 am and he went out to the living room to watch t.v. until I told him at 7:45 that he could call his aunts, uncle, and grandparents to come over to watch them open gifts. This was the chaotic mess!

  Aunt Mel taught Jaylee how to put on an oven mitt to get her food out of the oven!

Sorry that this was such a long post, but it is more for my sake of writing it down!
