Kindergarten Graduation

Andrew graduated from Kindergarten at George Washington Academy. Curt, Dallin, Grandpa Dennis and I went to his graduation. He was so proud of himself and he looked so handsome in his cap and gown. Andrew's teacher this year has been Miss Smart. She has been great and Andrew absolutley loves her. He really enjoyed Kindergarten and he has learned so much this year. Andrew has become a good reader and writer and he is very good at math. He enjoyed learning about all of the continents and he also really liked learning about space. It is hard to believe he will be in first grade next year.

Olivia Ann Crofts

Olivia Ann Crofts was born on May 3, 2012. She weighed 6 lbs 8 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. I had been up with back pain the night before, but figured it was the way she was positioned and so I didn't think anything of it. I got up that morning and took Andrew to school and Dallin to daycare. I went into work and as soon as I got there I realized that it was more than back pain. I went into the doctor's office and he told me we needed to do the c-section right away. It was scheduled for May 8th and so I was very suprised. I called Curt and my Mom and then headed over to labor and delivery. I got there a little after 10:00 am and they started prepping me right away. I was sad because my Dad was in Salt Lake City at meetings and wasn't able to be there. My Mom and Curt got there at about 11:00 and at noon they took us back for the c-section. Everything went very well and at 12:30 pm our little girl was born!

After she was born they brought her over for me to see her. I couldn't believe how perfect she looked!
Curt was able to be there during the c-section and he got to hold Olivia right after she was born. He was one proud Daddy!
I was so thankful that my Mom was able to make it for the delivery.
I called Shelly when I got to the hospital and she headed to St. George with Sammy and Malia. I was so grateful for them because they picked up Andrew and Dallin and brought them to the hospital. It was perfect timing because they got there just after Olivia was born. Andrew was so excited to see his little sister. The look on his face when he walked in the hospital room was priceless. He was so excited! Dallin was a little unsure of everything and he would glance over at his sister, but he didn't want to get too close to her. Dallin had been sick and so we had him wear a mask and Andrew thought that was pretty neat and so he wore one too!
My parents watched the boys while we were in the hospital for 3 nights. They brought them in to visit every day and we are so thankful that they were able to help us out--THANK YOU!! We brought Olivia home on May 6th. It was so nice to have her healthy and finally home! Curt's parents came helped us out for a few days.
We are so blessed to have this beautiful girl join our family.

Happy Birthday Dallin

Dallin turned 3 years old on April 9th. We had a family party for him and he had a lot of fun!

Dallin is definetly our spitfire! He has got so much personality and energy!! He wears us out, but he is so much fun! His new thing is when he gets mad at you he will look right at you and say, "You're not my best friend". He loves his brother, Andrew, and follows him wherever he goes. Happy Birthday Dallin!!

Monster Jam 2012

We held to our tradition and went to the Monster Jam World Finals in Las Vegas. We went to the air show in St. George the weekend before and I wish I would have brought my camera. The boys loved watching the Blue Angels fly and we had a really good time. Needless to say Andrew got his fill of trucks, planes and jets this month! We decided Dallin was still a little too young for the Monster Jam and so he stayed in Cedar City with Grandpa and Grandma. He had a blast and we had some good one on one time with Andrew.

Happy Birthday Andrew

Once again it has been awhile and so I am trying to catch up on the past few months! Andrew turned six years old on February 28th. We had a really fun party at Jumping Jacks with a bunch of his friends. He had a blast!

The weekend following his Birthday we had a family party. Andrew was totally excited about his present from Dad and Mom!
He also loved his present from Grandpa Dennis & Grandma LeeAnn.
Andrew was so excited about his Birthday and he loved all of the attention. He is such sweet boy with a tender heart. He loves going to Kindergarten and he is learning so much. He has become a really good reader and is very good at math. His favorite things to play with are legos and transformers. Happy Birthday Andrew- We love you!!

Grandpa Logan

My Grandpa Logan passed away on Thursday. I thought this was a great tribute to him.

Robert Emmett Logan, 86, passed away peacefully on January 26, 2012 in Buffalo, Wyoming. Bob was born on March 24, 1925 in Beaudette, Minnesota, to William Joseph and Mabel Josephine Logan. He married Betty Dawn Ell, his high school sweetheart, on December 12, 1947, in Ortonville, Minnesota. They are the parents of five children.
Bob was the oldest of six children and grew up working on the family farm in Ortonville. He graduated from Ortonville High School in 1943. After marriage, Bob and Betty continued to farm in Minnesota for several years until moving to Casper, Wyoming in 1952 with their son and two daughters. Bob began working as a paleontologist for Shell Oil Company in Casper, when he was transferred to Salt Lake City, Utah shortly after his third daughter was born in 1953. After 12 years in Salt Lake, Bob was transferred to Farmington, New Mexico, where his second son was born. In 1966 Bob left Shell Oil and moved the family to Jackson, Wyoming, where he purchased an Enco dealership. He sold the business three years later and moved his family to their final home in Buffalo, Wyoming. Bob and Betty were hired by Reynolds Aluminum, where Bob managed all operations at the Lake DeSmet Lodge and Marina. When Texaco bought out Reynolds, Bob stayed on as part of the maintenance staff, where he worked until he retired in 1984. In his many happy years of retirement he stayed busy gardening, repairing furniture, and helping out at Ron’s Plumbing, which Bob always said was the best job he ever had. Bob was known for his quick wit, lively sense of humor, and mischievous grin.
Bob Logan is survived by his wife of 64 years; his daughters LeeAnn (Dennis) Moser of Cedar City, Utah, and Laurie Logan and Lynn (Tim) O’Gan of Buffalo; his son Michael (Charity) Logan of Eureka, California; his sister Betty (Jerry) Miksche of Ripon, California; his brother Bill Logan of! Story; and his seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, his son John Logan, and his sisters Shirley Evers, Donna Stine, and Vera Tice.

We love you so much Grandpa! You will be greatly missed!!

It's a Girl!!!

We had our first ultrasound a couple of weeks before Christmas. I was convinced that we would be having a boy, but the ultrasound tech told us that we are going to have a baby girl! Curt and I were so excited!! We kept it a secret for just about a week and then we told everyone while we were together in Salt Lake. We went to Salt Lake with some of both mine and Curt's families to go to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert. I made chocolate cupcakes with pink cream cheese filling in the middle. We had everyone eat a cupcake to find out what we were having. I am so mad that I didn't take any pictures. Andrew and Dallin are so excited to have a baby sister. She will be joining our family in the middle of May.

Family Pics 2011

Andrew Lost a Tooth!!

I had to document this memorable day! On November 6, 2011 Andrew lost his first tooth. He was pretty nervous about letting Mom pull it, but once I did he was really excited. The tooth fairy brought him two $2.00 bills. Andrew thought that was pretty neat!!


Disneyland 2011

This October we went to Disneyland with Billy, Shelly, Samantha, Malia and Mom. We had such a fun time! We spent three days at Disneyland and a day at the beach. We stayed at the Disneyland Paradise Pier Hotel. It was nice being so close to the parks and it also came with a lot of perks. One of the highlights of our trip was our dinner at Goofy's Kitchen. We got to interact with a lot of different characters and the food was Yummy! We had such a good time!!
