Lucky the Leprechaun

Last night over dinner Landon was telling Matthew that he didn't believe in leprechauns, but he still likes them. We asked him what he liked about them and he said he likes their green hats. Ha, Ha.

Corbin loves clementine oranges. I had a box of them down low while I was unloading groceries. He was able to get one out of the bag and start eating it.
Our new house is coming along. The boys LOVE playing in the dirt and adding to their rock collections. They each of a little spot set aside at the lot to keep the rocks that they like most.
They decided to play basketball so Matthew got out the basketball shirt that Aunt Martha gave him. Then Landon had to get his shirt from Aunt Martha, but it didn't have numbers so this is what we came up with.

We got a letter from school a couple of months ago about a Chinese Immersion program for 1st grade for Landon. We weren't too sure when we first heard about it, but decided to go to the meeting and then see how we felt. I went to the meeting and was impressed at seeing what kids can learn. My nephew is at another school doing Chinese immersion as well, so we had seen how it was going for him. Landon said he wanted to do it, so we decided to apply and see if he got in. Yesterday we found out he got accepted. He is excited, and we think it will be good for him.

So, its been awhile. . . .

Matthew had his 3rd birthday. He wanted a Jake and the Neverland Pirates cake.

Landon had his 5th birthday and he too wanted a Jake and the Neverland Pirates cake.

 Landon started kindergarten! He was so excited and now that he's been going for 5 months he really enjoys it. Matthew can't wait until he's old enough to go to school too. Although Matthew does enjoy the one on one time he has with Landon's toys while he is gone.
 I saw this picture and forgot about this beach that we went to. It is at the Salt Lake. We were this close to the water for probably 3 minutes at the most. There were so many bugs that our boys were crying and it stunk really bad. We've been to this beach before in March and it was very nice and not at all smelly. I can't say that I'd recommend going in the late summer. We saw a buffalo and some antelope, so that was kind of cool. As we were leaving Matthew told us he wanted to see more of the Cantalope.
 We experience a huge miracle in our lives. We were able to sell our house. Anyone who knows the specifics will tell you that it was a miracle. We are so grateful to have been able to sell it and are glad to be closer to Clint's work and closer to our family. We did leave some wonderful friends behind and we miss them.
 We went to a BYU football game. It was very hot. We decided our boys are too young to enjoy a full 4 hour game. I'm sure in a few years they'll be ready.
 We got to go to the Brigham City Temple Open House. It was neat to be able to take our kids in the Temple.
 For Halloween we had Jake (from Jake and the Neverland Pirates), and little pumpkin, and Tigger.
 Our boys got to go trick or treating with their cousins. Landon was sick though and had a fever the whole time. We didn't go for too long. We love being so close to all our family.

 Landon got to sit on Santa's lap
 Matthew was a shepherd boy with spunk.
 It was Corbin's first visit with Santa.
 Matthew was  little shy of Santa, but he made decided he would sit on his lap so that he could receive a present.
 Here they are on Christmas Eve just about ready to go to bed.
We welcomed home my sister Martha from the Omaha Nebraska Trail Center mission. 
 My sister Laura got married to Tyler. My boys got to dress up like little men.

Corbin had his first birthday. 
and finally they broke ground on what will be our new house.

So, there you go!

May 2012

 Matthew is a lefty like his Grandma Proctor and Uncle Jared! He gets more giggling in then hitting, but that is good for a 2 year old.
 Corbin and I enjoy watching and having an occasional hit or pitch.
 Landon shows us how to hold the bat. Notice our use of a hot pad for home plate! :)
 Matthew loves to hold Corbin in the morning.
 Landon & Corbin having a good time in the rocking chair.
A happy morning at our house!

Corbin Dale

He's here! We all love him!
Since Matthew was born so fast we were really worried about making it to the hospital in time. I was having contractions a few days before he was born and they were 3-5 minutes apart for a couple of hours, so we went to the hospital, but apparently it was early labor because I was only dialated to a 3 so I got sent home. Early Wednesday morning I woke up to consistent contractions again so we went to the hospital. We had the same nurse that we had had on Sunday. I was then dialated to a 3.5, but having consistent contractions. She called the Dr on call because our Dr was out of town. He decided to keep me because of my fast labor with Matthew. After they decided this my contractions slowed down so they had to give me pitocin to keep me in labor. Kind of funny, we were so worried about making it in time and it turned out to be my longest labor. 12.5 hours. I was so happy to see Corbin when he was born he looked a little like both of his brothers. He weighed 6 lbs, 8 oz. and was 20 inches long.
We are adjusting to having 3 kids, and we are very thankful to have each of them.

Proud BIG brothers!
We taught Matthew and Landon that they need to put hand sanitizer on if they want to touch Corbin. Matthew calls it hanitizer. He puts it on and says "I member, I need hanitizer." When Corbin is crying Matthew will come over and say "Its okay Corbin, I your big brother."
Landon also put on hand sanitizer, and we told them not to touch his face, but they could touch his hair. So for awhile everytime Landon touched Corbin he rubbed hand sanitizer in his hair. Corbins head smelled like hand sanitizer. :) Now Landon makes sure his hands are dry. :)
We thought we wanted a girl, but we are glad that Heavenly Father is in charge and sends us what we need. He knows us better than we do. We are grateful for our 3 boys.
