2014 Year in Review {part 2}

August: Bryke did his 2nd year of swimming lessons, we took a trip to the Hogle Zoo in SLC, mommy canned all by herself for the very first time, WE FOUND OUT BABY #3 IS A BOY! Bryke burned his hand really bad on the lawn mower :(

major improvements from last year! He used to say he didn't want to get baptized because he had to go underwater :)

1 giant blister under his pinky and then 5-6 little ones on his thumb and palm poor little man!
September: Bryke started pre-school at Filer Elementary School 2 days a week and absolutely loves it! Mommy started another class at CSI-BIO 227 Anatomy and Physiology and decided that instead of being a Medical Assistant she would do the RN program. The plan is to start the program Fall 2016.

Keegers had to have a picture too :)
Silly boys!
October: We went to the corn maze and Bryke and Keegan dressed up as Dusty and El Chupacabra from the movie Planes.

November: Keegan turned 2! Mommy and Daddy took a trip to Seattle and had such a great time!

Our sweet ride for the trip :) We are pretty proud of ourselves that we survived driving in the big city!

Such a great trip with my handsome honey!
December: Was a whirlwind of Christmas parties with both families and friends. We went swimming at Sligars the day after Christmas with the “Haney cousins”, played in the snow and now we are waiting for Baby boy #3 to come!

Merry Christmas!
We hope that your year was great just like ours was! 2015 is going to start off with a bang with baby boy #3 coming on the 6th of January-we can’t wait to cuddle and love him and go to a family of 5! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

Here are 2 little things I wrote during the year that I didn’t want to leave out since this blog is basically our family journal.

As I sat and looked through all the pictures of the last 7 months (after trying to get a blog update in August) I couldn’t help but feel so incredibly grateful for the life that I have. Maybe that’s why I got so behind on my blog so that I could have this moment today to really truly realize just how incredibly blessed I am. Being mama to my 2 crazy boys is the best job but the hardest job and I let myself get bogged down by the whining, poopy diapers and million other things that go with being a mom and forget to really enjoy the million and one AMAZING things about not just being a mom but being Bryker and Keegan’s mom. I wish I was a better writer so that I could put into words what I am feeling right now. All I know is that today looking at pictures of the three people that are my life I know without a shadow of a doubt that my Heavenly Father loves me and has blessed me with more than I could ever realize! I am so incredibly thankful for my little eternal family and am going to try harder to be in the moment and love them with all I’ve got!

May 17th was such an exciting day-Aftyn was born AND……we found out we were expecting baby #3!! I had been sick with sinus stuff and finally went to the quick care where I got some medicine that they said could make me nauseous. Well it did but it felt a little too familiar so we stopped and got {5} pregnancy tests-thinking there is no way! But yes there definitely is a way and baby Darrington #3 will be joining our craziness in January 2015 and we couldn’t be more excited!
