We had a wonderful Christmas!
Brand new pj's for all three. Bekah loves jammies. She calls them her "happies". Hyrum, however, would rather sleep naked. We often go in at night to find him in just underwear. What is it about boys stripping down?
The boys gave us a full hour of blissful quiet while they played in the living room with new tractors. I love the hats!

Here is Daddy and the kids having a blast breaking the rules and making trains on the slide. We were the only ones in the pool... it was so fun, one of our favorite parts of the trip.

Bekah loves to play outside with her brothers. She usually sits right by them and pulls at the grass. Yesterday i looked outside and did not see her by the boys who were busy, diligently pulling weeds...( daddy is teaching them to be productive outside:) I panicked and ran outside... there sat Bekah inside the boys outside toy box . She played in there for 30 more minutes before coming inside. What a good girl!
1 YEAR OLD!!!
Bekah turned one year old on May 29th! I cannot believe that my precious baby girl is so big! Bekah is such a good girl. She is our calm presence in a home filled with chaotic brothers. After she wakes up from a nap she will wait in her room singing or talking to herself until we go and get her. She spends her days playing quietly on the floor with stuffed animals, or following brothers or mommy around in our daily tasks. She just learned to walk, but prefers the speed of crawling. She has 8 teeth, creating a very big and cheesy smile, and her Daddy's bright blue eyes. She also has an unruly Mohawk on the top of her head and virtually no hair on the sides and back making her irresistibly adorable, (must be from her mothers side!) She is a beautiful little girl! We love our little Bekah!

I am so thankful my little
boys are best friends!! They
do everything together.These
pictures are just another day
in the life of little brothers.
From a make believe ride on
a broomstick, (both are Harry)
to finding worms outside, and
of course stories with Daddy
they love each other. We love

*In May we greeted our first baby daughter, Rebekah Diane, taking us to a thriving family of five!!! Wow!!!
*In November we moved to Nibley UT! Time to set up some real roots! Who would have thought it would have been in Utah?
*We moved into our very first home! Actually a rental home, but not sharing our walls with people of questionable character (to put it nicely) and having a yard for the boys is worth mentioning!
*In December Joe graduated from Western States Chiropractic School! Joseph Anderson...DC!
What a crazy year we have had, but so much accomplished! To add to the update here are our newest family pictures. A friend took them in November, back in Portland.
We really lucked out with these pictures. A few days before we moved we had a day without rain and were able to take our pictures outside. The fall colors in Portland are amazing.
Here is Hyrum! He turned 3 in October. Stubborn doesn't even begin to describe Hyrums personality. I like to think eventually it will become a positive characteristiclike steadfast and immovable... its worth hoping for.
Joe and I took some time to hit the coast last summer, here we are at the beach. Our friends forced Joe to take some couple pics with me.. he would have rather been shot. Good thing he had no choice!
Jace will be 5 in June, and starting kindergarten in the fall. He is really growing up fast. He has a lot of...energy... mostly a good thing I think. He and Hyrum are best friends.
More updates to come soon.
