St. Patty's Night at home

Amber, Steve and I had a small party at night. Liam and Conor were alseep and Jared was at work. I bought some green treats and made some kinda green food. We had a couple of Irish movies but decided we wanted to watch Stardust. It was a lot of fun thanks Amber and Steve for hanging out with me!

St. Patty's Day at The Zoo

We went to the Zoo on St. Patricks Day with Tana, Bronson, Sawyer, Steve and Steve's friend Joe. It was freezing at first but it was so much fun especially because there was hardly anyone there and the animals were very active. We all wore green which didn't really matter because we were bundled up but we made sure to take some pictures of our St. Patty's pride inside the snake exibit. Liam loved seeing the animals especially the elephants and snakes and Conor was just in awe of everything. It was the best trip we have had to the zoo!

Sorry to those of you who check my blog as you know I am horrible at keeping it updated but I am going to try to do better. We are doing great. The holidays were great we got to see a lot of family. The boys are doing well they have managed to get sick here and there during this winter but nothing serious. Jared is doing great with his job and I love being a stay at home mom. Jared has remodled a couple of our bathrooms and they look awesome. Everything is good.


Liam will be 3 in 3 months I can not believe it. He is doing great! He is into dinosaurs and dragons and is back to loving his favorite thing sharks and whales. He loves playing make believe with his toys. He even re-inacts whole scenes from his favorite movies like finding nemo it is really cute. He has a great memory and remembers everyting Jared and I say. He loves dancing to music and singing songs too. He also has a bit of terrible two attitude and finds himself on time out frequently but for the most part he is a really good boy. He is getting really good with Conor. He loves him and calls him the buds but still has a little trouble sharing toys. He loves playing with kids and is actually getting really good and sitting through sacrament so he can go to nursery. Here are some cute pics of him.


Conor is 8 months old now. He is doing great. Since he turned 7 months he has been crawling everywhere, pulling up on things and even scaling. He just really wants to get to wherever Liam is so he is really motivated to move. He is really happy and loves getting into things and playing with his brother. He laughs and babbles a lot more than he ever has. He is so much fun.

Christmas pics

Here are some pictures we took for the Christmas cards that we never ended up making. Oops atleast I got some cute pictures.

This Year for Halloween I took Liam and Conor to a Trunk or Treat with Tana, Bronson and Sawyer on Friday which was a lot fun everyone complimented on Liam's shark costume and Sawyer and Conor looked adorable. Saturday when Jared got off work we all went trick-or-treating with Aaron and Lori's family. Liam was a shark which couldn't be more perfect. He put his costume on atleast five times before Halloween. Conor was a little duck he looked adorbale. I was bride of Frankenstein or something like that and Jared was a whoopie cushion. This was the first year we took Liam trick-or-treating. I think he had a great time he especially loved seeing all the costumes. He only lasted about a half hour which was perfect becasue it started to rain and we were all ready to be done. After trick-or treatng we went home and had Chili and cornbread and pumpkin pie cake and watched How To Train Your Dragon. We are going to have to hold off on the scary movies for awhile. It was a great Halloween.

Our Family Vacation

Jared had some vacation days so we decided to take a week vacation. We went to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo and visited both our families along the way. Conor is horrible in the car so we only drove at night. We broke up the trip by stopping in Parowan and Boulder City on the way there and back. It was a much needed vacation. Even with sometimes cranky kids and a long drive it was amazing. The kids had a great time and Jared and I didn't want to come home. Below are all the things we did. Enjoy.

First Stop

Our first stop on our way to Cali was Parowan. Actually I went to Parowan a few days before the trip to visit my fam and so we could leave as soon as Jared got there.

Visiting the Smith's

On our way to San Diego we stayed at Jared's parents house for a few days. Jon just returned home from his mission so it was great to see him and the rest of the family.

The Zoo

The first activity of our trip was the San Diego Zoo. It was beautiful and had so many amazing animals. Liam loved it ofcoarse especially the elephants which is his favorite animal at the moment. Conor slept half the time but woke up just in time to see the giraffes. It was a fun day.

Sea World

We decided to go to Sea World becasue Liam loves whales and sharks and all sea animals. He was in Heaven. He watched the Shamu show twice;he likes to call Shamu Willy. We went to the shark encounter which is where you see Liam and I looking up as the sharks swim above our heads. We had to do that one a few times. We also touched dolphins and fed seals. It was so much fun and Liam loved every bit which made us really happy.

My Boys

Just some cute pics of my two boys together. They love eachother. Conor loves watching Liam but gets annoyed when Liam touches him. Liam loves to hold and touch Conor.

Fall Fun

There is this great farm down the street from us that we went to with Tana and Bronson. It has pony rides, a hay trampoline, petting zoo and great food! We had a lot of fun.

Everything is fantastic with the Smith family. Conor is three months old and has been a much happier baby. He smiles and coos now and doesnt't scream nearly as much. I am still getting used to being a mother of two. We have our rough days but I am learning. Liam loves his brother he likes to hold him, kiss him, hug him and sing to him. Liam is learning his shapes right now and almost has them down his favorite is octagon. It is suprisingly one of the first shapes he remembered but he struggles with circle and square; funny boy. Liam is also starting to sing songs which is so fun and sooo adorable. He sings Itsy Bitsy Spider, Popcorn Popping, the thomas theme song, Old Mcdonald and my favorite Five Little Monkeys which is the only one he sings all the words flawlessly thanks to aunt Cass.
Jared now works full time at the Walgreens in Saratoga Springs which is so nice! He recently participated in a pig wrestling event to promote H1N1 vaccinations. I will try to upload the video I took on my blog if not go to walgreens H1N1 swine killers on youtube it is hilarious.
We have been doing a lot of home improvments lately which has been a lot of fun.
Life is busy but we are enjoying eachother and our boys.
