Happy Holidays

It's has been sometime now since I made my last post. We are fortunate to be going to Arizona next week to celebrate Christmas with Troy's family. This morning we had an early Christmas with my family. Some other fun Christmas activities we have done include building a gingerbread train (Linken kept eating the candy), Holiday playdates with ornament and cookie decorating and Pierson had a huge blow out diaper at the playdate and ended up naked :)

Pierson is now 5 months and Linken is 26 months. Troy is a full-time student at the chiropractic college and I am filling my time with the boys, being a krazycouponlady, and Mommy School.
We are loving our crazy hectic life and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

2 Months

Pierson is now 2 months old. We love having another little one and Linken is a wonderful big brother! Troy starts school in 2 weeks and is excited to be a student again. I am still learning the life of 2 kids but love every minute of it and motherhood.

(gotta love candid shots)

Grandpa Compton loves spoiling the boys with surprises :)

Evans 2010 Family Reunion

The last week in July we were lucky to be able to attend the Evans family reunion in Bend. We had a great time and Linken had tons of fun with so many people to play with and so many things to do. Pierson slept through the whole thing but what can you say when you are only 10 days old...

Pierson had professional newborn pics taken by my cousin Jami while at the reunion and I will post those once they have been edited. But for now this is how Pierson spent his time at the reunion ;) Thank you Aunties!

Drop Top 10k

Troy ran his first 10k over the weekend! He had a great run and a wonderful experience. It was a beautiful day and Linken and I were there to cheer him on. Linken even made a special shirt to show his support :) After the race we went over to my parents and spent the rest of the afternoon playing in the sprinklers, sandbox and enjoying the 86 degree weather. Linken loved spending the entire day outside. What a great day!

(We got to the race at 5:45am and it was still cold outside hence Linken's long sleeve shirt and jeans)

Big Boy Bed

This week Linken got his first "big boy bed." He loves it and his Disney Cars bedding! We are trying to transition him from a crib to to toddler bed before the baby comes. We are using Super Nanny's "Stay in Bed Technique" for a guideline on the adjustment but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Goonies Never Say Die

Troy and I were able to spend this past weekend in Astoria to celebrate our soon-to-be 3 year anniversary. The baby is expected to come the same week as our anniverary next month so we decided to celebrate a little early and my parents were more than happy to watch Linken for us. The 25th anniverary of the movie Goonies was also happening in Astoria so we took advantage of all the fun events and celebration.

Few things we did: Fort Clatsop, Trolley Ride, Watched Goonies on big screen at movie theater, Tour bus of Goonies film locations, Astoria Farmer's Market, Climbed the Astoria Column, Ecola State Park, Romantic dinner for two in our own private booth and relaxed at a Victorian Bed & Breakfast

On a personal note: I LOVE my husband and I LOVE being married to my very best friend! He is the greatest husband and father. I LOVE our little son, the baby in my belly and hope for more to come. I couldn't ask for a more blessed life! What more can I say... 3 years going on into eternity.
