Happy 10 Year Anniversary Nate!

So today is our 10 year wedding anniversary. Can you believe it has been that long already? Nate sent me flowers just now so I had to brag and post them. Here is a wedding photo and a recent photo to show how we "haven't hardly" changed (except for the hair!!). I really have been blessed with a great husband and father for my children so I thouht I would do a little shout out to him on this day.
I love your passion for life and need for excitement and spontinaity. I love that you provide our family with all the temporal and spiritual needs that we have. I love that you work so hard so I can be a stay at home Mom like I always wanted. I love that you like to travel and take me to new places. I love that you make me laugh at all the wrong times. I love that you love me even while I'm huge and pregnant and never even complain about the lack of attention you have been getting. I love that you support me and all my crazy ideas like painting the house every other week just cause I feel like it:) I love that you are crazy about me and our kids and that everything you do is somehow for our benefit. I love how smart you are and how I know I can always count on you to help anwser my questions about life and the gospel without making me feel like I am any less intelligent. I like that we can debate without fighting. I love that we have made a beautiful Family and Life together and I hope that the next ten years are every bit as great and wonderful as the first!! Love Katie

We need your help!!!

We cannot decide on a baby name. For some reason this time we are stumped. It seems like all three other kids were named by the time we had an ultrasound and found out what they were. Nothing is clicking this time. We have a long list and I want all of you to comment and tell us your vote. Here are the choices: Aiden, Whit, Grant, Jax, Madden, Cohen, Davin. Keep in mind the middle name will be James after Nate's Dad. Thanks for your help.

Addison starts soccer!

Addison started playing soccer for the first year last week. She really seems to love it. It's always hit and miss with her. She wanted to do the violin, then dance, then motorcross (which I actually put the kabosh on)now we are on to soccer. I think she could be good at it. Ever since she started playing and I've been going to her practices with her I have been having dreams about my days and my anxiety with high school soccer. It has brought back a lot of memories. I'm just glad she hasn't said she wants to do something else. I think she might get her mild case of ADD from her dad!

First Day of School!!

Finally!! These last few days of summer were killing me. All of my kids friends were out of town and I have been going crazy. School started today and I don't know who was more excited, me or the kids. They didn't even want me to walk them to school (probably because I'm huge and slow). Noah is now in the 3rd grade and Addison is in 1st. They are both gone now all day (I hated the kidergarten schedule, I would vote for all day kindergarten if it comes to our schools) I was remembering in the past how I cried when the first day came thinking my little ones were leaving home, I even followed the bus to school Noah's first year. Now I feel relief and and secretly, joy. I know this won't last with the baby coming and all but for now, especially while Parks is at preschool- Life is GOOD!

Where do you belong?

You Belong in New York City

You're the energetic, ambitious type.

And only NYC is fast enough for you.

Maybe you'll set yourself up with a killer career

Or simply take in all the city has to offer.

I took this little quiz. It was fun. I dont know if it fits me but it's fun to think about. Take the quiz and tell me your results!

One last play day before school starts!

So since school starts on Monday I decided to take the kids to Raging Waters today for one last fun summer day. I use the word "fun" loosely because being almost 7 months pregnant, thirty pounds overwieght, in the sun and a too tight swimsuit, aren't exactly my idea of "fun" right now. Luckily Hillary came with us to help and we or should I say the kids did have a ton of fun. You would think that going to Lake Powell, Bear Lake, boating and motorcrossing all summer was enough for these kids but somehow I still feel the need to entertain them. I was annoyed at first when I found out school was starting on the 18th but now I am counting down the days so I can get back to a schedule and a normal (well normal for us) life:)

Nate and kids motorcrossing this summer.

All summer long we have been going to races. Nate put together this little video to see how much fun they have. You might need to pause my music to hear the video.
