Help! Has anyone seen my baby???

So, last April I had this perfect baby boy, Cache. Coming into this world at a WHOPPIN 10 lbs. 7oz., he came into my life and completely stole my heart. He has the most wonderfully pleasant disposition and people fall head over heels for him wherever we go. It's not hard to get him to smile, he does it so frequently and he is the most easygoing baby I have ever seen. I do have one SERIOUS problem with Cache though, he is growing up way too fast!!!

Its funny that with our oldest kids we are so excited for them to hit their big milestones, then we come to our last and we almost dread them. And why is it that Cache is growing faster than all of my others?? Or does it just seem that way? Oh, how I wish I could just bottle him up and keep him just as he is forever!! Everyday I see less of a baby and more of this adorable little person emerge. He's charming, lovable, and so much fun, but I am missing that little baby of mine. I'm not normally a gushy mom, but for some reason with this little guy I'm feelin it. I am absolutely, positively, unbelievably in love with this little baby of mine. Now, do any of you know how I can keep him this way???

I figured it out! (it's a miracle!)

S , trying to master the backyard ice rink!

V giving K a skating lesson!

We made the kids pose for a picture on Christmas morning before they could open their presents! We also make them drink a full glass of egg nog. Have you ever tried to drink that stuff fast? We're so mean! Look at those excited faces.

Lights at Temple Square.

Alright, I figured out my picture posting problem! So, here are a few pics of the holidays for your viewing pleasure! Sorry so late.

What Time Is It?

I've been spending way too much time on our home computer doing nothing interesting. I have failed to manage our files and have found that things have gotten out of hand and all the memory is being used. So I have been transfering files to our external to free up some space. I'm sure there is some technical terms for this problem, but I don't know about that. So, I'm spring cleaning all of our family photos and videos. Wow it's amazing how much we have done in the past 5 years! I'm feeling very nostalgic. Wondering where has all the time gone. I'm sure everyone does this.

Time is a funny thing. I find myself wishing I had more time everyday. Time to do this, time to do that, I guess that is why I am up so late! This is the only time I had to do this. So, for my New Years "Resolution" I am hoping to be more efficient with my time. Lately I have been finding myself so behind on things and it is driving me crazy. Of course having a 9 month old who is into EVERYTHING doesn't help, but still, I think I could manage things a little better. So, to my dear friends, I am wondering what little words of wisdom you all might have that might help me manage all those important things in life ie. family, housework, personal time, play, whatever!

And WHY CANT I POST PICTURES??? This is driving me crazy!!! HELP!

Happy New Year! (our holidays update!)

I have been much too busy the past couple of weeks to get a new post on, so we will be playing a little "catch up". To all of my friends and family, Happy New Year! I hope this year brings you many joyous memories and successes! It's always a strange thing to look back on the past year and realize just how much has happened then to realize that a whole new year awaits you! I'm looking forward to it. If it's one thing I know it's the fact that you NEVER know what life is going to throw at you next!

This Christmas break has been so great! I think my favorite thing about Christmas break is all the days we spend doing NOTHING! Daddy is home, the kids are home, we all get to spend a lot of time together and that is the greatest thing about the break for me. Christmas was good to us. We spent the day sledding behind the car with cousins at grandma and grandpa's house then we had Nana and Papa over on Christmas Eve. My kids were lucky enough to get a visit from Santa (amazingly) and all of their wildest dreams came true. Then we proceeded to spend Christmas day putting toys together, using up mass amounts of batteries, and playing ALL DAY LONG! It was pure bliss! I don't think we got out of Jammies until 3pm!

The Minnesota girl in me decided to build a backyard ice rink this break and what a fun experience that has been. It started out pretty good then we had a few set backs with the water and leveling, but in the end we have a pretty decent rink for the kids to skate on and they have loved it! Vienna is doing really well and Kael now wants to be a hockey player.

So this has been such a great break for us and part of me is a little sad to see the kids go back to school, then again another little part of me is just fine with the idea. I'm sure most moms know what I'm talking about!! So for all of you once again, Happy New Year!
p.s. Does anyone know why I can't find a link to add photos to my post?? weirdsville!
