So...yeah, I've been noticing for the last couple of weeks that it has been almost a full year since we have updated our blog. There are probably many reasons for this lapse but I am hoping to make a renewed effort to keep things relatively up to date. I'm not sure how many people, or if anyone at all, reads these words but it might be a good place for me to practice my words and creativity in writing and in picture taking skills (of my own children, of course :) So, an update, Munckin A is getting ready to celebrate his 4th birthday on May 21st, I can hardly believe how fast these last 4 years have gone by! Miss E is 2, but turning 3 in July. Miss N is 16 months old and she will be a big sister on, or before, June 27 as we have scheduled a C-section for that morning to have another little boy join our family. We are excited to have another monkey join us, and even more excited that it's a little boy giving us two boys and two girls!!! We are getting some new pics of the kiddos come May 7th and will update pics at that time.

We are still alive and well...unfortunately we don't get to the blogging world all that often (definitely something for me to improve on :) Anyway, since we posted last we have enjoyed 5 wonderful months with our newest bundle of joy, 'lil Miss N, as well as our two other wonderful children. Murray has finished another semester at the University of Utah and we are anxiously awaiting the results...his grades. I'm sure all will be well and our efforts during the last few months have paid off. We are in the process now of training for a 10k run, the Deseret Morning News 10k to be specific. Murray is doing the training with me but I think he is planning on staying along the sidelines with the kiddos on race day. He is definitely biggest cheerleader in my goal to eventually run a MARATHON!!! I am so grateful for the wonderful husband and father that he is! Murray and I are also training with Tricia, Murray's sister, and I hope that she will be able to get the day off work so that we can run together...running with someone will definitely make the run more fun and probably a lot easier. So anyway there is much happening in our house and I will make a greater effort to post more often. --Georgette

We FINALLY got some family pictures done for this year! We went to a fairly new studio in the area called Fotofly, they are awesome!!! I would highly recommend them to anyone living in the Salt Lake Valley or nearby vicinity. They give a CD with the images of the photo session along with full rights to reprint the images for your own private use all for an incredible price!!! I'm very happy with the pictures and they worked great with the kiddos! Anyway, on with the pictures (or a small sampling at least :-))

Sweet Little Miss E...

And last but not least my Sweetheart and I...

It is quite late for me to be up writing this, but from a little bit of caffeine here I am. There have been a plethora of tantrums thrown by both kiddos, but there have been many guffaws and chortles and snorts and laughter. Munchkin A's latest laughing spree is caused by the video on YouTube of a panda bear cub sneezing and making the parent jump out of her furry black and white hide... Well, almost. If he hears it from the other side of the room, he starts to laugh and hustles and bustles over to the laptop to watch and screech in laughter. It never gets old...
Miss E.'s been into books and any chance you have, she's pushing a book into your hands and saying please, in the most adorable little girl way of saying please. Her growth rate is phenomenal and I think we might take her in for some radiation testing. She is just growing way too fast and we aren't sure how it's happening... One downside to her growing up is that she has to eat anything that we adults are eating, perhaps in the chance that she could be like Alice, in "Alice in Wonderland" and magically grow to adult size. If she spots you, she charges over to where you're at in a crawl that might break the record for the 100 meter dash and begins to say "bite please," while crawling up your leg!
A and E both saw the fireworks show here and were both so tired, we're not sure how much they enjoyed it. Where we were at also had an echo with each explosion and the larger booming ones made A a little nervous. Tonight, we did a few of our little fireworks for the wee ones. A wanted out to run around, but with him in his pajama's and recreational detonation of explosives, we thought it better to keep him confined to his captains chair in the double stroller. E had a blast with the sparkler she was given while in grandma's arms while A was unsure. You can toss him in the air and there are no worries, but give him something loud, or fast moving and he shy's away from it.
They both had a blast on their first trip together in the wild outdoors. E successfully scared every piece of dust and rock in a... well... 30 feet radius. She also learned how to grow a dirt goatee quite successfully. A found it quite fun to walk all over the place, around camp, around Bath Rock and even down to the outhouses there. There was also his matter of safety for the tents and tarps. We believe he was concerned about a gust of wind taking the tents clear to kingdom come or somewhere else. In an effort to alleviate this problem, he took handfuls of sand from the tent area and proceeded to add the weight of the sand to the tarps and tents. Such a little genius he is, and so thoughtful!
The summer has been quite blissful as well for me. It's been going along nice and slow to allow some rest and relaxation and time with the family. I enjoy this time and not stressing over school and assignments bla bla bla bla bla... Next semester, I will have to do much studying and preparation and beloved practice in a scuba diving class. That will be the toughest 1.5 credit hours yet! I was taking a compass and map reading class, but the field trip day was overwritten by Gette's sisters wedding. I must admit, I've been studying a little on my off time. I just can't seem to get enough of it, and to top it all off, it's College Algebra, the story problems! DUH DUH DUUUUHHHH!!!!!
Gette's being uncreative when it comes to her, so I will add a little ditty. While experiencing much fatigue from running through my mind all day, she's still hard at work cooking a little one to arrive sometime in December. She also survived the camping trip and was quite a trooper too! We did a little star gazing one night and took turns chasing after and walking with the kiddos. There is a little growth in her midsection which is good and we've heard the little heartbeat a few times. While it kinda freaks me out wondering what it would be like to carry a baby, she's started to feel something wiggling down there. Right now, she's entertaining herself by doing a French braid in her hair without a mirror! She's going wild and crazy!
And on that note, I think it's been a day! Tomorrow brings more work... *sigh*
