Woot Woot school has begun!! we had a great long summer but this momma is ready for the school year to start, Jordan is in 2nd grade and and his excited to go another year with his cousin Kobe(not in the same class). Ryken is in 1st grade and can't wait to have lunch at school and play with Jordan and Kobe at recess, Luke Samuel has started preschool at challenger(I can't beleive how big he is) it's a little bitter sweet for me, he is my little buddy 24/7 so I was sad and a little nervous for him to leave me but I know that he will have a blast and do great. The up side for me is that 3 mornings a week I will have ME TIME!!! all the kids will be at school and I can do whatever I want, my sister said I should walk around naked just cause I can haha!! I will be keeping myself busy with projects and friends to chill with.

Sports time!!

It's that time of year:SPORTS!! Ryken and Jordan decided to play soccer this year and are on the same team with makes it a lot easier for us, they have only played 1 game but they are doing awesome. Luke is playing T-ball and is super excited about this new shirt and hat, he seems too little to play but I'm excited for him, tonight was his first game he was a little bit ornery because he got a bloody nose and then fell asleep only for me to wake him up not too long so he was not very happy with me and didn't want to play the game but eventually he got more into it. We can't wait for dad to come home to watch(in Rome)the games.

Disney on Ice:Toy Story

So the latest toy Luke has been into is Buzz and Woody, he LOVES Toy Story so when I heard Disney on Ice was coming to town and that it was Toy Story I just knew that I have to take him so I made a mommy and Luke date night out of it. I told him about it but I don't think he fully understood until the minute we walked into the ESA and glory all around we where surrounded by Toy Story stuff and Luke was so happy, we got a program and toys and headed to our seats and were pumped that we were on the 7th row front and center and then it started and I was just watching his face and his reaction and he was in heaven :) we had a blast just the two of us and Luke can't stop talking about it. Now that he has seen the show he wants to add to his collection of toys he has...Buzz, Woody, Jesse, Hamm, Slinky, bullseye and now wants Rex and the army guys. I love when Luke likes something because when he does his whole heart is in it, I love this kid.

2012 Pictures

I honestly have the 3 cutest kids in the world :) I'm happy that all of their birthdays are close enough that I can take them at the same time to get pictures done every year. Jordan turned 7 in October and Luke 3 in January and Ryken will be 6 in February. Back in November at the Christmas expo I signed up for a shoot at a place called Camera Shy ( in Lehi and it just like Fotofly but I like this place better. Although Luke was a nightmare and cried the entire time and was almost on the verge of rescheduling he decided at the last minute to give a few smiles, all the pictures turned out adorable.

Happy Birthday Luke (1/11/12)

Happy 3rd birthday to our sweet Luke!! time flies when you have a sweet cute funny little boy, I love this little dude so much, he makes our family so happy and always has us laughing. Luke is a very smart boy learning his shapes and colors/counting and recently has found that he LOVES to make puzzles which he is very good at, right of the bat he started making the 48 piece puzzles and hasn't slowed down. At the moment he is way into Buzz and Woody he even wanted to wear his buzz Jammie's at his birthday party :). Luke had a fun toy story family party and got spoiled rotten. We love you Luke Samuel Whitney!!!

Happy New Year!!

Wow! it's almost been a year since I have posted on our blog, just call me a MAJOR slacker :( It's so hard to believe that is 2012! We are very excited to start the new year, we have some changes that we are excited about, Dan will be graduating with is MBA (U OF U) in April and we couldn't be more excited. It's been a long two years but Dan is so amazing and completely dedicated all while working full time and being an amazing husband and dad. Jordan is in first grade and is doing fabulous and is really into football, he also plays on a Jr. Jazz team with Ryken and they both are amazing. Ryken is in kindergarten and is doing really well and loves that he can read, he is the only kindergartner on the team and totally denominates. Our sweet Luke will be 3 in a couple weeks and is the sweetest blond haired blued boy who is full of energy and make us laugh daily. And their is me :) not much is going on with me, still a happy stay home mommy and sometimes still finds time to do some kind of craft. Dan surprised me this Christmas with a trip to Paris!! which has always been a dream of mine, when we were first married in our first apartment I decorated it all in a "Paris/Eiffel tower" theme, I can't even begin to tell you how speechless I was and how excited we are to go.
Also another big event has happened, my sister and nephews that have lived in Georgia for the that 6 1/2 years has finally come back home, we couldn't be more excited and happy to welcome them into our home, we have had the house under construction for the last 3 1/2 weeks to make room for them to be comfortable and we are more then happy with the out come. I happy to say that I finally have my little big sister home(she's older but shorter) I'm so excited that we can hang out and do all kinds of fun stuff together again. I'm happy that our boys can become closer and even happier that my dad has all5 grand boys in one place. Life is GRAND!!
