Christmas Morning

We had a good Christmas this year. It was our first year having it at our house. It was fun to start our own traditions and to see the looks on the boys faces.
This is Chases robot panda. It makes real cub sounds and moves its mouth and eyes like a real panda cub. In his other hand is "splinter" those of you who know ninja turtles!

Marriner has been sick but he still had fun with his toys.

Daddy's girl!
After Church on Sunday. Both looking pretty cute!

The many Faces of Marriner!

This is Marriners "I can't see myself in the veiwfinder screen" face. He doesn't realize I have to first take the picture!

Abby looking so cute!

Brittnee and Adam came and stayed the weekend with us. This is us getting ready to go seen the lights on Temple Square. Abby looks so big in this picture!

Aisha looks so cute. She was all ready to go!

If you can't tell, Sadie is the little bundle in front.

MJ isn't facing the camera but there is everyone else. Adam is taking the picture.

Sadie getting ready to go!

Fun in the Snow!

Chase playing in the freshly fallen snow....what fun it is to be little! Chase is starting to say some funny things. The other day he asked Brock if he could have some gum. Brock said that we were going to have dinner first and Chase said "Dad, give me a break!" Brock and I both looked at eachother and laughed. Then Brock said, "If you can tell me what 'give me a break' means, then you can have a piece." Chase didn't know.....anyway it was pretty funny. He picks up makes us be a little more careful about what we say in front of him!

Brock buzzed the boys and his hair. They looked pretty cute!

I like Marriner with a little more hair grows!

We were driving to Weston and Brock was playing "cool" when I took this picture!

New Pictures

This is Sadie just being herself! She smiles all of the time and is starting to giggle. She gets the hiccups when she's pretty funny. She weighs 15 pounds and she's only 2 1/2 months. The chub just melts in my arms!

Self portrait....if you can't tell. I have to take pictures of myself because Brock either tries to take a picture when I have no make-up on, or when I'm not I guess this works. (Chase usually is wearing clothes...don't worry)

Sadie's curious look. I think she looks a lot like Brock but she also looks like Brocks sister Andrea.

I love this picture of Sadie. Don't you just want to kiss those cheeks?

Little Sadie

"My Lady Sadie" I call her. She's more allert now and is smiling when we talk to her. I think she looks like both her brothers. Mostly like Chase but I see Marriner in her too. It is sooooo sooooo fun to have a girl! I love it!

We had a good Thanksgiving. Pleanty of food and lots of fun. Natalie took these pictures of Sadie...I think they are pretty cute. The flower just adds to the cuteness.

She definately hasn't missed too many meals. She's only 7 weeks and over 13 pounds! She is so fun to hold....just melts in my arms.

Our New Arrival!!!

Sadie Richards
Born October 11th @ 1:30 a.m.
9 lbs 7 oz 21 3/4 inches

Ready to be done!

As you can see....I got very big!

I really don't feel as bad as I look.....I'm just ready to have the baby!

Two big brothers!

Her brothers just love her! Chase is so sweet and Marriner tries to be sweet! He just doesn't know what to think of her. He holds her for a second and then pushes her away. He gave her "the hulk" the other day to play with!
She already has Brock wrapped around her finger!

Chubby cheeks already

Just hours old.
When she was born I couldn't believe how chubby she was...she looked half grown. The nurses had to put a size one diaper on her because the newborn diapers were too small!

Our little Family

Two proud brothers!!
Marriner is being so soft!

I love the little concerned look she has!

Chase Playing soccer

Chase loved his first soccer game. He didn't know quite what to do but he had fun doing it!
His friend Jayden. When some action was going on, they were in the backfield playing with eachother. It took some prompting from both parents to get them back on track!

Just warming up!

Chase was the photographer in this picture!

We had to get "the belly"

Marriner and Chase had just taken a bath and were getting ready for bed. They are just best friends.....most of the time.

Brock got me a dozen roses for our anniversary. They are the same color as our flowers when we got married. We also stayed in a hotel, went to dinner and a movie. It was a fun five year anniversary for sure. Good job Brock!

Tara's Wedding

The kids all looked so cute. It's a good thing we have cameras to capture it all!
The two pregnant ladies!

Devanee.....showing her sexy side!

Family picture

Just the boys! We had so much fun at the reception. What could be better than chocolate covered strawberries!?

Chase, Marriner, and I went to the Davis County Fair. We loved petting the animals at the zoo and riding the ponies. It was fun!

Chase riding on a pony

Chase loved the big Rooster!

"What do the fat piggies say?"

Chase thought the petting zoo was pretty fun. The llama was his favorite!

Marriner was fearless at the petting zoo at the Fair. He stepped on the pigs and tried to pull the horns off the was pretty funny!
