Hello. Once again its been awhile since I've posted anything about us so thought it was time. We are doing good. All of us are healthy at the moment so that is good--well I still have a terrible cough but feel fine otherwise. The kids are FINALLY healthy after being sick with one thing or another since the beginning of October!!! No I am not kidding. It was a LONG couple of months where they just continued to get some sort of bug right after another. It was awful. So I think we are on the up and up from all that.
Justin is staying super busy with work and everything else that goes with work. He enjoys his days off but it seems that even on his days off he is still having to do something for work. Poor guy...it just never seems to go away :) We are excited that he has some days off while I am on vacation from school.
I too am staying busy with work. Gosh am I every looking forward to Christmas Break!!! It really could not get here any sooner. Its been a long few weeks since Thanksgiving and the kids and I both need the break. I have so enjoyed my class so far though. I have a great group of Kindergartners!!! I am constantly amazed at the growth they are showing. I do have to admit that these kids show growth much more often than first graders. It seems like every week someone is doing somthing they couldnt the week before. So that is super exciting. I am loving it, but its time for a break :)
Jyllian is loving school! She goes to preschool two days a week. We just got her "report card" on Tuesday and she is doing awesome. She is such a smart little girl and such a sweetie. We are glad she is doing so great at school. She is also being busy at home by doing "school-work", constantly drawing, dancing and singing. She is anxiously awaiting Santa's arrival and is convinced she is getting a Swimming Baby from him....guess Santa and Mrs. Claus better make sure she has one of those under the tree Christmas morning :) She is a great big sister to Cohl and loves to feed him. I am pretty sure that more food gets on his bib then in his mouth but still its cute.
Cohl is growing growing growing. Holy cow can you believe he will be 8 months soon!!! I am still in shock over it. It really doesn't seem that long ago. It makes me sad. He still is not crawling...but does attempt to do so. He just gets mad and realizes he can roll and get to where he wants to go much faster. Its pretty comical watching him roll all over the place. He does love to sit up and stand. He still doesn't have any teeth either although there has been many times we've thought it could be any time now. He has been so miserable with it, but they just won't come through. He loves to laugh, and smile at us. It is too cute! We have to admit that he is pretty darn cute--but we are a little biased :)
Sooo I think that is about it. We hope that you are all doing wonderful!!! Keep checking as we will put up some pictures in the upcoming days of Christmas and all its festivities :)

Every year since Jyllian was born we have gone up in the Mtns and cut down a Christmas Tree. We continued our tradition this year and I am sure we will for many years to come. This year we decided to get a smaller/thinner tree than we have in the past, mainly so that we could have more room for presents. We definatly have a bigger house than we have had in the past few years but we went for a smaller tree. It took awhile to find the "perfect" one but we did indeed find it and we love it. Just what we were looking for. We will see what we find next year.While up there we were able to get some pretty cute pictures of the kids and us, as well as had some lunch in the snow :) Fun times... Hope you enjoy the pics!

Today is a day to give thanks and boy are we thankful for so many things. Today as I sit and write this post I reflect on the all of the things that we are thankful for...
We are most importantly thankful for each other--Justin and I have been happily married for 4 almost 5 years and have been together for almost 8! Wow, it is hard to believe that it has gone by so quickly. We have had so many great times together and I think back about so many of them it brings a huge smile to my face. I can honestly say that Justin makes me a better person, a person who I have always wanted to be, and I can only hope that I do the same for him.
Two of the greatest times that we have had together is bringing out two little kiddos into this world! Wow to be parents is such an awesome thing. We are so thankful for Jyllian and Cohl. They really are two amazing kids. We are constantly amazed by what they are doing and learning and growing. We know that our life would not be complete without them.
We are thankful for our families. Although so many of them we do not get to see regularly we are thankful for all that they do for us and the times that we do get to spend with them. We would not be where we are today if it were not for them!
We are thankful for our health! Gosh there are so many people that we know that are sick right now, and not just with the every day sniffle. It really makes us realize how lucky we are to have a healthy family and we pray that those that we do know that are sick to get well!
We are thankful for our friends! You guys are amazing and so good to us.
And above all we are thankful for God, for he is the reason that we are here in the first place.
So we hope that you all have a wonderful thanksgiving and remember to look back and remember all of the things you are thankful for! Thank you for sharing our lives with us! We love you all!!!
Here are some pictures from today--Enjoy :)

Another Halloween has come and gone. We had a wonderful day and night. Jyllian got to have TWO costumes. Yes she is spoiled! She was a princess (of course) and then she decided that she wanted a costume like Cohl's which was a puppy! So there you have it--two. We were lucky to find a puppy costume in her size-that was until I washed it and it shrunk but still it was cute. She wore her princess costume to her preschool party and later the night of Halloween trick or treating. Her party at school didn't turn out the best. Justin was gone to training in Idaho Falls so he was not able to attend her party. I took the morning off so that I could go but all she wanted to do was go home. She didn't want to take part in the games and I of course had to be right next to her side the entire time. Miss Kendra said it was very out of character for her... when the party was over I headed to work and Jyllian went to the babysitter. This was on Thursday the 30th; on Friday both her and Cohl went to the babysitter's. I picked her up as soon as I got off work and brought them home for naps before going trick-or-treating. We started off at the hospital and then hit a few houses around my mom's house before coming home to eat some dinner and wait for Justin to get home. Once he got home, Jyll changed into her princess costume and we went to the houses here on our street. We came home and handed out candy before going to bed. PHEW another Halloween come and gone! I can honestly say I am not that "into" Halloween, and I can tell that Jyllian enjoys dressing up but really isn't all that excited about the actual holiday. Maybe she will be more into it next year!?!?! And Mr. Cohl he was just happy that someone was holding him, he didn't care if he was dressed as a cute puppy or not! In someone's arms and he is happy :) So here's to Halloween~hope you had a great one.
