9 Months to Recover

Four days after my last post I had a cornea transplant.   All I have to say about that is if you can avoid having one. . .do it!  They are not high on my list of recommendations.

So now the question . . . how do you catch up on almost a year of posts?  The answer . . .LOTS of pictures and a very long post. 

Ellie has loved this bunny since she was three months old

The boys LOVED to feed Ellie.

This is what I found when I went to check on Ellie during her nap one day.

Brayden turned four in Aug.

We had a beach party in our back yard.

Carson started school at APA (American Prepatory Academy).  A charter school in Draper.  A lot of work for me, but a huge blessing for Carson.  Her has really blossomed over the last year.

1st day of school

Ellie was Tinker Bell for Halloween.  My awsome friend Heidi made this incredible costume for her.  Ellie enjoyed picking the little balls off and eating them.

Carson was Peter Pan and Brayden was a lost boy. Yep I forced them to choose costumes based on what I wanted Ellie to wear.

Christmas morning.

Ellie thought we were insane for waking up so early

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 159

Even Carson thought it was a bit too early

Brayden was psyched out of his mind

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 155

That takes us to the end of 2009.

At the end of Jan 2010 we went with Ryan’s family on a cruise.  We spent two days in New Orleans were our cruise left from and than five days on the cruise boat.

The fam. at Jackson square.

Brayden LOVED Beignets.  Can you blame him.   They are scrumptious.

It was cold in New Orleans

It was not in Mexico

Ryan’s family was a lot of fun.

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 209

The boys had a BLAST.  At the end of the trip Carson could not decide if his favorite vacation was a cruise or a trip to Disney Land


Ryan’s Grandma Archuleta passed away shortly after we got back.

Ryan spoke at her funeral.   He’s had a lot of public speaking opportunities that pass year or two and did a fantastic job.

In Feb. Ellie turned one.

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 242

She share her birthday with my sister and my friend Becky (Becky could not make it to the party.)

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 241

She was NOT a fan of the candle on her cup cake or of every one staring at her and singing loudly.

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 237 

It really hurt her feelings.

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 238 

She did get over it eventually though.

Carson turned 7,  yes SEVEN in April.  I am not going to lie.  I cried my eyes out the day before his birthday.  I have every year.  I don’t with any of my other kids, but for some reason with Carson all I can see on his birthday is the miracle my 2 lb. 13 oz. baby has become.

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 273

We spoiled him and let him have a party at the children’s museum.

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 266 

It was complete chaos. . .

Family Pictures 2009 - 2010 260

. . .but, the children’s museum did an incredible job.  That IS something I would recommend.

And since I completely forgot to take pictures of Easter that brings it up to date.  So there you go Jamie, I kept my promise, lots of pictures of Ellie.
