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!!
