The Marx Family

The Marx Family 2009

Our family (I'm guessing you care if you're reading this) is doing really well! No really, not much sickness around here YET. . . I know, I know, I just jinxed us. Healthy winter=Happy winter for moms:)

I bet you didn't know we are now a family of 6??? Yep, since our return home from Utah in December my sister Malisa has been staying with us. She is, hands down, the best listener, shopper, babysitter, teaser, makeup "doer," friend, aunt, sister, fort builder, bather, . . . anyways the list goes on--but she is my favorite teenage daughter:) Wink Wink! Just kidding mom--she's yours and YES you should get all the credit for getting it perfect on your last kid:) Because she is truly A'mazing!

We are currently applying for jobs--across the USA. Yes it's true--well, at least the whole left side. WAY WAY left (San Diego---ahhhh San Diego). Craig graduates the third week of May--THIS MAY! I waited a long time to say this, and still it seems like a total joke--but we are moving on in life--no more school?? That just seems like tossing aside an old friend after all these years:) NOT going to miss that old friend.

Moving along to the bragging portion of our blog. . .

Niyah said "da-da" first. She's just copycatting her brother and sister--younger siblings tend to this a lot. Since though--her new babble is "BUH--BUH," as you can see she's already learning all of her letter sounds. When we say "what does the "b" say?" She says "BUH, BUH". . .I think we have a genius on our hands:) Heh Heh.

Niyah taking a bath--she LOVES to "alligator roll" in the tub.

Dallin (baby) Creighton Shirt--This is size 2T--can you believe he got it on--or better yet that he argued "it still fits me!"

Niyah's usual facial expression--she's helping me fold laundry--LOVING how warm it was. (Look how light her hair is).


Right--he made his own "to-do" calendar, funny:)

This is a prime example of the unexplainable things my hubby does with our kids--you might guess Niyah was cold. Nope.

A jumble of photos--
Hartney Has Hair:) Hooray!! She loves purple and pink, eating cheese and meat, and to cut paper.

Niyah loves to be doing things--around crowds, on walks etc. This is our happy camper on a day warm enough to walk.

Dallin and Hartney were going on a special date with daddy--to play basketball at the church, so they thought they needed to wear "workout" clothes. Funny! AND Craig earned boo-koo brownie points by taking ALL THREE KIDS ALONG!!!! It was sooooo quiet I didn't know what to do with myself. . . . . . I napped:)

This one is a sideways--sorry,
I'll learn how to fix that another day.
