I have a moment to blog

Wow, summer 2013 is well underway and I haven't blogged about anything. Well, here are some fun pictures of what has been happening (probably mostly of Jessie).
Camping at Yellowpine for the Colton reunion.

Someone fell on her face in the dirt!

At the fishing hole.
Nathan graduated! From Kindergarten.
Easter in Roosevelt.
Hiking on Memorial Day weekend. Battle Creek Falls.
Buffalo Peak. We were all supposed to be jumping. Good job, Jordan!

A Very Special Day

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in June. The day before Father's Day. June the 16th, 2012. Even though it was Saturday, we got up early to get ready. I carefully braided Jamie's hair in two long french braids. She put on a beautiful white, poofy dress that made her look like a fairy princess. Yes, it was baptism day for Jamie. We took a few pictures before so we wouldn't have to stress so much about it on the day.
Jamie and Dave were ready and waiting when all the family started to arrive.
And I mean ALL the famiy! One of the things that made the day so special was that the whole Colton clan was there, together for the first time since right after Jamie was born. It was wonderful!
The spirit was very strong during the meeting. My two sisters gave amazing talks about baptism and the Holy Ghost. The music was beautiful. I remember all the kids gathered around the font to watch the baptism. When Jamie came up out of the water she was beaming! Happy, happy day!

Time to start blogging again, I hope

Wow! It's been a whole year since I last blogged about the birth of little Jessie. She is already one year old! So, I guess I'll start with her. Here are some pics of her first year:

We love the scowl!
Happy Birthday!

Jessie is such a fun baby. I don't know if it's because she's my third, but I am less stressed and I just enjoy playing with her so much more. She is absolutely delightful...most of the time. The year went by so fast. She is growing up! Slow down, girl!
More posts to come soon!


I've been so bad at keeping up with the blog! Baby Jessica is already one month old. She is so beautiful and we all adore her - even at 2:00 in the morning! Here are some pictures. The professional ones were taken by my awesome cousin, Brynn.
In the hospital:
Baby weighed in at 8 pounds 12 ounces; by far my biggest baby. She was 20 inches long.

Ok, it's time to blog about Christmas already!

We had an amazing Christmas in Roosevelt! As usual, Mom was a hostess of the mostest. There was every kind of homemade candy and treat you can imagin!The food was amazing every meal (and in between)! We enjoyed playing games all day. Some of us got a lot of volleyball playing in. I'll be out there next time! My favorite thing was just spending time with my family! That's one of my favorite things about Christmas. I also loved having church on Christmas day. The music was awesome - thanks to my mom. No one got sick this year either (we waited till New Years!). Happy times!
Surprisingly, the tree remained in tact even though baby Marcus was around!

Fun times with family. I'm sad that we stopped taking pictures when Anne's family and Mare got there.
Oh, here's one of Anne, baby Maya and Mare at the Grill. Yummy!
Happy New Year!
