January 2013

I can't believe January is already over! Its been a crazy month, just trying to get through each day, hoping the next will be better for mom. (Found out right before Christmas we are having baby #4! Excited to finish our little family and SO excited to never have to go through these first few torturous months again...) 
The kids have been busy though, and they remind me every day why I put myself through this misery. They are so worth it. They bring me daily happiness and joy, and I can't get enough of their love. I am so blessed to be their mother. 

We had a big New Years Eve Party, with a real firework show and everything! We had a blast and hope to make it a yearly tradition. 

THen on New Years Day we went hiking in the beautiful Arizona mountains. It was cold but we quickly warmed up and had a wonderful time. Nothing like being out in nature on a beautiful day. Its like a balm to the soul!

I love my sisters! They are so beautiful, fun, and always a huge help with my little ones. What would I do without them? 

My hubby, packin the C-rad on his back!


Look at that view....LOVE IT! 

Bella and I had a special Mommy-Daughter date when I took her to Disney on Ice. She enjoyed it, but kept wanting to go down onto the ice to see the princesses. It was a battle to keep her in her chair, but we had a good time. I love my Bella Rose! 

Then at the end of January, me Brax and Bella took a little camping trip with Jaron and Aileen's family. It was a COLD, wet weekend, but worth it. The kids had a blast and it was so nice to get out of the city and into the cool, crisp, clean air for a few days. 

Uncle Jo Jo came too, thankfully! He was a huge help to this sick mommy with her kiddos and all the kids of course love him. 

We love cousins! 

It was a full month. Braxton also started soccer and Bella is still in dance and loving every second she gets to go. I love watching my children learn and grow and see them become little people. They are my greatest treasures!
