Brittany and Oren had there new baby girl early this afternoon (Tuesday October 27, 2009)  She weighed in at 7 lbs. 1 oz. and 19 3/4" long.  She is seriously the most beautiful newborn I have ever seen!  We are so excited to add her as a niece/cousin to the family.  CONGRATS STOCKS FAMILY!!!! P. S. we are still waiting on the name.

notice the bracelet her mommy made...girls get all the accessories
Don't we all wish we could look this gorgeous after having a baby?

Love those little feet!!!
Proud uncle

She has so much hair
We are missing two in the family picture since no one under 14 can come in the hospital.   However, Lizzy and Calvin did come to the window to see their new baby sister and hopefully tomorrow they can take the baby home where they will get to hold her at last.

Brakken dug right in and loved it
We forced Ryker to put his hand in the pumpkin, he took it out and said "wash my hands" as he ran to the bathroom HEHEHE

Now that it's finished Ryker likes it

Mommy's Birthday

 Snow is coming!!!
                                                              My FAVORITE guys

 I hope it doesn't seem narcissistic to post my own birthday but if I don't no one will and it was such a good day.  Erik made me waffles with whipped cream and strawberries. Then we drove through the canyon so I could finally see some leaves.  We ended up in Park City where we went on the Alpine Slide, which was really fun other than the slow family that we ended up catching up to even though we gave them over a five minute head start.  That night Erik and I actually went on a date (this only happens for birthdays and our anniversary) It was nice to have alone time with the guy I love so much.  Ending with cheesecake, Missy Sorenson's recipe, delicious!!!!!  My boys did such a great job making me feel special and putting together a good day....

Ryker's Bday Pics

OOPS did this backwards....sorry it's been a while.

 Liberty Park has this awesome fountain/ wading pool area that Ryker LOVES so we went there, unfortunately it was closed that day so it wasn't flowing just a little stagnant water at one end.  Eventually we worked our way over to the splash pad on the other side of the park.

I am not an artist so this is the best Lightning McQeen cake I could do...
Brakken found the cake I was cooling..it made for a stressful morning
Ryker's new bike....He loves this thing
