Meg E.B.

Our little Meg E.B. is growing up way too fast!  She is just over 7 months now and is very mobile.  She army crawls and gets into everything.  She is a petite little thing and we all adore her!

Megan Eline Benedict

We are so very excited about the arrival of our little Megan.  It seems like just yesterday Jason and I were beginning our journey down the road of parenting when Caitlyn was born...time flies.

My Apologies!

I know, I know, there are no excuses for not blogging in nearly 8 months so all I can say is SORRY! Here are a few pictures of what we have been doing and I'll be sure to post again in another 8 months...kidding...well, maybe.
Caitlyn and Aubrey were in a 4th of July children's choir.

Pretty close to a perfect day...

The morning started with a little trip...
However on our way we ran into a herd of sheep...actually they ran into us, we held still :)
And enjoyed the ambiance.

And this is why...
...we love living in the country.

The friendly sheep herder even took a picture of us in the van, how nice was that!

Then we reached our original destination and picked up this little beauty.

And we played "pass the kitty" in the van.

Aubrey named our kitty Misty...Welcome Misty.

Then Jason and I went on a date while Mom and Dad Benedict watched the kids and we picked up this little beauty to surprise the kids.

We asked Caitlyn to come out to the truck by herself and this was her reaction when she opened the door and saw our little puppy...Priceless!

Caitlyn loves dogs and she truly was in heaven at this moment.

One happy girl!

And suddenly we are a family with a kitten and a puppy. By the way, the 1st day with a pet is always perfect...I'm sure we'll have some not so perfect days along the way, but I'll look back on this perfect day and always smile.

A Happy Halloween

Brandt as a pumpkin checking out his loot. He wasn't as excited about Halloween as I had hoped, but then again I was dealing with a 2 year old...what did I expect?
The daddy's and their munchkins.
Jase, our boy wonder.
Way to be in character honey :)

The Ladies and our babies.

Adorable Ellie.

Trunk or Treating

Troy was a good sport as I "aloha-ed" my way to him while picking him up at school (he,he).BBQ in the backyard, it was the perfect night!
Me and My Momma, Love YOU Mom!

We took a quick trip to Utah for Halloween this year. Although it was short we had a wonderful time! Thanks Utah family we had a wonderful time, maybe we could do it again next year?!
