Crafty Kids

Audrey loves to do projects. She is always asking to do something. She is also quite happy to sit at the table and cut paper for hours. Today we pulled out the popscile sticks and made pictures and then they painted some ceramic animals. They all had a great time being creative.

Whenever I ask Cannon to smile for my picture, this is what I get.

He is such a goofy boy! I'm not sure when he thought it was so funny to do his silly face, but he sure thinks its hilarious.

Coral's First Bath

She didn't love it, but she didn't cry either. Afterward she smelled so good! I love baby smell.

Big Helpers

It is so nice to have big boys that volunteer to hold the baby. I can count on them to keep her happy while I get some things done. It is such a blessing. The boys just love her and are always asking to hold her. It is really cute to see such big boys holding such a little girl.

Getting some sleep with a newborn in the house quickly becomes a priority.

But cuddling with the newborn is even better!

Grandma Mitton took us all to IHOP for breakfast one morning when she was visiting us. It was free scary face pancake day for the kids and the rest of us enjoyed a yummy breakfast too.

Keeping this crew entertained while waiting for the food can be a big task, but this morning we discovered the spoons. The time went by quickly and then our food came. The kids had fun making their own faces.

We went to a carnival at Russell's work. We had a busy Saturday and so we didn't go until the end, which ended up being perfect because there wasn't any long lines. The kids had fun. I ate like 4 cotton candy and shared another couple with Audrey. So yummy!

I don't like hiking very much. I love camping and doing things outdoors, but hiking isn't really my favorite thing. So when Hunter asked to go hiking I gladly delegated that to Russell. He had the day off because we had just come home from the hospital and the boys were out of school, so I told them that this would be a perfect chance for them to go. They picked up their cousin A.J. and headed to Red Rock. They all had a good time. Hunter's only complaint was that it was too short!

End of Football Season...

Now, its on to wrestling! But before we hit the mats, I want to share some pictures of Isaac's first season of football. He was on defense (I don't know the postion name). He had a lot of fun and so did we watching him. His Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Josh made it to almost every game and even Aunt Cheryl came. It was fun to watch him when he was in for a couple of plays. He really had a blast playing! He's number 80.

Coral Rose Dobbins

She was born October 25, 2010 at 8:07 AM. She was 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 19 1/2 in. long.

We got up early (4:45 AM) to get ready to go to the hospital.

We got checked in and got ready for the surgery. Mostly it was alot waiting. By 7:30 the Doctor had arrived and we were ready to go.

Everything went perfectly and Coral was here!

Both Grandmas were able to come and see her right away and declared her perfect.

Her brothers and sister just love her. We are very happy to have her in our family!
