I got sucked in... to the blogging world!

I guess it's about time to give this blogging a try. As if I need one more thing to keep me in front of the computer!
Just an update: Avery turned 7 in April. She is enduring her last day of school right now. She is now finished with the first grade & she is anticipating a full summer of fun. I can't believe what a great reader she has become. She also loves to draw & write little books. She has quite the imagination. She loves to scrapbook with me whenever my patience will allow it. She's very talented & I couldn't be happier that I have a little scrapbooker waiting to bloom!!
Evan is 3. He will turn 4 in September. He loves anything that has to do with superheroes. Especially Spiderman. Although I don't know if Spidey would appreciate some of the stuff Evan blames on him when he gets in trouble. I thought superheroes were supposed to be a good influence. If Evan gets scolded for saying a bad word, he says "Spiderman told me to say that!" That Spidey! I'd better watch them more closely.
Carson is as two as they get!!! Holy cow! He is quite a little ball of energy & mischeif. He thinks he can help himself to the contents of the fridge & cabinets & pantry. He climbs wherever he thinks he needs to be. He spends his days in PJ's safety pinned at the top for the "messes" he makes when he has access to his little boy parts. Jeremy says it best when he says Carson can't be trusted to wear real clothes. Besides climbing in the fridge & on the counters & up the shelves & into the bathroom sink & onto bookshelves (bolted to the walls) & onto dressers & changing tables, he also feels it is necessary to RUN everywhere he goes. He loves to give "oreo" hugs. (him in the middle of Jeremy & me) and gives out kisses like there is no tomorrow. He is very sweet, you just have to be paying attention to catch it most days! :)
As for Jeremy & me, we are sure staying busy with work, church callings and the other 'stuff' that comes along in life. We couldn't be happier with our little family and the choices we've made to get us where we are. We love our town, our ward, our neighborhood & our friends. We feel so blessed to be in American Falls & to associate with the people we do. Jeremy is starting his master's program at ISU this fall. He will be working towards receiving his MBA within the next few years. This is an exciting new chapter in our lives and we look forward to the possiblities it will bring.
Jeremy & I celebrated our 11th anniversary last March. We feel so blessed to have each other and our sweet children. We have a lot of fun activities & adventures planned for this summer. I'm always afraid it goes too quickly, but we will be enjoying it to the fullest. We leave for Calfornia in a few days. We will be taking Avery & Evan on a surprise vacation to Disneyland. Avery thinks we are spending a week in Fillmore... she couldn't be more excited to go there. I can't even imagine her reaction when we tell her we are on our way to Disneyland! We would like to give a huge shout-out to Jamie (Jeremy's sister, for always being willing to take kids for us, this time Carson) It will be nice for me to have a chance to miss him! :) We will post pictures of our trip soon!
