We had a really fun Christmas this year. Weston and Carter received new bikes from Santa. They where both very excited about the bikes. Aunt Anne spoiled all of us with wonderful gifts. I believe everyone should have an Aunt Anne. She is the most wonderful and giving person.

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas season this year. We are grateful for this time of year and the joys that it bring to all of us.

Ry is four months now. He is getting so big.

Here are a few of us on the day we blessed Ry. Thanks to everyone who came to visit for that weekend. We had such a fun weekend with everyone.

Is that Santa?

We went to the Mall last night as a family. As we where walking around sure enough there was Santa set up to take pictures. Both Chris and I looked at each other and said "its not even thanksgiving" The kids thought it was so cool that Santa was there.

I am proud to say that I am a Conservative. I pray and hope that Obama is a good President because we as Americans deserve a President who will do a good job. Only time will tell. So far his first choice does not impress me at all. Change, that is all that we heard. Lets see what other "changes" we see. Keep praying everyone tough times ahead in more ways than one.

Ryder was a tiger.

Weston was a transformer.

Carter was a bow hunter.

Here we go again

So Ryder has not been himself for about the last two days. I knew that there was some thing wrong so I took him into the Doctor. Sure enough he has an ear infection. He is on penicillin for it and we have to wait and see if he has an allergic reaction to it like his brothers did. He is only 9 weeks and I feel so bad for him. We went through this whole ear infection thing with Carter. I see tubes in our future for Ryder.

Snow and Ryder

Here is Ryder taking a bath. I have to say I have the cutest kids in the world. Ryder had his two month check up. He is 22 inch long and 11lbs. He is developing wonderfully.
This is what we woke up to today. 8 inches of SNOW. I am not ready for winter.

Teeth and Smilies

Weston lost his first tooth yesterday. He came running into the house and told me "I have waited my whole life for this moment" He cracks me up.

Here are some pictures of Ryder smiling. He looks just like the boys. I swear my kids don't look anything like me at all. The Martin genes are just way to strong I guess.

Boy Update

Weston had school pictures last week and I was asking him how he was going to smile. I wanted to make sure that he did not do a silly smile. Below is how he said he was going to smile. I started laughing so hard when he did this. I have no clue where he got this from.

This is Carter in his Superman PJs. He has not taken them off for three days. I have to figure out how to get them from him so I can wash them.
Here is Ryder smiling. He is getting so cute. Everyone says that he looks like the boys. You have got to love those cute Martin genes!

Glenn Beck

So most of you know that I am a HUGE Glenn Beck fan. I listen to him every day. Well my lovely husband had the opportunity to do sound for a taping that will air in November. It was up at the Huntsman Cancer Center. I will admit at times I am jealous of all of the fun and exciting things Chris gets to do with his job. Well tonight was one event I wish that I could of gone to. Chris was able to put the mic on Glenn and talk with him. He also ran the sound for the taping. I got to stay home and take care of our boys.

Sorry the picture is so grainy. This is what happens when the light guy turns the lights out right when you take a picture.

Trying to Smile

Here is a video of Ryder. I am trying to get him to smile but he does not want to. He is almost 8 weeks now. He is going to be chunky like Weston was.

Swing and Scooter

I have been really lucky because Ryder LOVES his swing. It has really helped me out a lot when he gets fussy. None of my other boys liked the swing that much. Ryder also takes a Binky. He is almost 7 weeks now. I got a smile on Sunday for the first time.

Carter has learned how to ride his razor . He does really well with it. He likes to race dad on the other razor. He cracks me up right now. He has been carrying around a Book of Mormon around for the past two days and he calls it his SCRIPTIONS. He says really funny things right now.

Weston and his boo boo

Weston had a bike accident this weekend. He came home with a bad bleeding nose and his lips scraped up. He basically has road rash on his lips. His lips are swollen. Thank goodness he had his helmet on and nothing was broken. He was trying to go off a home made jump at his friends house.

Day 1
Day 2

Here is a video of him explaining what happened to him. He has a hard time talking.

Carter started Joy School this week. He was so excited. I think that it makes him feel like a big boy.

Happy Birthday

Happy Happy Birthday Mandy. We hope you have a wonderful day.

Deer Hunt and Cousins

All of the men came back from the deer hunt on Thursday night. Everyone had a blast especially the little boys. Carter was a hand full for Chris but I am so proud of Chris for taking him on the Hunt.

This is how Carter rode on the back of Chris ATV. When ever he got tired he just fell asleep.

Here are all of the Hunters at a beautiful look out point. My poor mom has done 2 whole loads of laundry of just Camo.

Papa with Carter and Weston.

Here are some of the Cousins. Suzie, Carter, Tommy and Weston. Ivy and Ryder are not in the picture. We missed all of Mandy's Family.
