Let the Fun Begin!

Thanksgiving was great and it was filled with Wirig Family Fun! We took family pictures and so I am just getting ready to get those Christmas cards out. Life is fun and busy! Justin graduates in a couple weeks from BYU and he is busy busy at work as well. My kids are growing up so fast and it is sad but so fun at the same time. They keep me entertained and exhausted! I love my little family and I can't wait for this December month because it is jammed packed with fun-ness! We get to go home to Seattle this year for Christmas and I can't wait to spend time with my family up there! Merry December 1st everyone!

Oh and we are expecting our Baby #3 the beginning of May! Kinda crazy but I'm all about popping these kids out as fast as I can because being pregnant is NOT my favorite thing in the world...but bring on the kids. We find out what this one is on the 13th...

Halloween and Birthdays!

So a lot has been going on but it has been a fun past couple of weeks. Halloween was fun. We had a little neighborhood/friend trunk or treat, and we went to Justin's work party at Adobe where they deck out the whole 2 buildings for Halloween trick or treating. It was fun. Taylor really wanted to be Rapunzel, so we got the wig and everything, but it was tricky to keep on because it was so heavy. We put it on Skylar's bald head and she wore it all around. She looks funny with hair, but hopefully when she has her own, it will look awesome!

We went to
Taylor was invited to her friend Payton's birthday party where a real princess, Amera, came and told the girls stories and danced and took pictures with them. They were all so excited and dressed up in their little princess dresses. There are so many little girls in our ward that are Tay's age and they have a blast together! LOVE IT!
This girl is my sister, Larisa, and she comes twice a week to watch my kids for a couple hours while I can get away, run errands, do anything I want for myself and by myself. I LOVE it! She is the best and my girls LOVE her!
Last but not least, our little Taylor turned 3 on the 13th of November! I can't believe it and I love her so much. She is so funny and smart. She is more like my little mini me buddy I can count on to laugh at all my lame jokes and silly faces. She sings every song she has EVER heard and especially Christmas ones right now, she can HARDLY wait for Santa to come to her. Everyone is also her "best friend" these days.
Life is great and I can't wait for Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for some great updates!!

As of Late...

It has been a busy and fun past few months. We had a great summer and now that it is officially fall, we are full swing into the long sleeves, fall decorations, and little outings where we can have fun and still keep warm. Here is a little of what has been going on.

Me and My sky baby at Kara and Carter's wedding. Awesome day and we are happy that they are now our neighbors!

We took our little family down to California for a surprise for my mom's 50th birthday. All my sisters and brother were there along with my aunt and uncle. We stayed at the Malibu house which is always fun right on the beach. We went to disneyland for a couple of days and celebrated Skylar's 1st birthday!

We took a drive up A.F. Canyon this past weekend and even though most of the pretty leaves are gone, it was still fun to see all the colors and spend the time with just us.
Taylor is constantly wanting us to put her princess dress ups we took it to Malibu with us and she chased her cousin Peter around wanting to dance with Prince Peter all day every day.
Yes...She is now 1 year old! Crazy. She is so funny and cute and we love her. She has been kissing us goodnight while hanging upside down, since she was born and now when it is bedtime, she doesn't let us kiss her unless she is upside down.

Justin went out of town for work a while ago and I was dreading being home alone all week. He left me with a survival kit basket when I woke up...
There is a little "beach" by our house that we went to with our playgroup girls, so fun!

Sky has been walking since she was 9 months old...she is a little crazy mover

Life is great...More to come very soon..................

Summer Has Been CRAZY fun!

It has been so long since I have posted anything on this blog! Pretty sure I don't have anyone that checks this anymore, but if you do, I have an update of our summer happenings! There are a lot of pictures for my own self, but enjoy if you would like.
This summer has been so busy and full of fun! We have spent a lot of time at the pool, playing outside at parks, reunions, and trips to St. George. The 4th of July was a lot of fun and we did the annual neighborhood parade at Justin's parent's house. Taylor marched the whole time. We had fun that day swimming and eating loads of good food. I took the kids down to St. George with my sister-in-law Kara to watch their cousins while Stu and Danielle went on Trek. It was so fun to spend time with Kara and all of those little kids. We went to a splash pad, toddler time at the library, played outside doing water games, and just hanging out. One of my best friends, Mikale, got married last week! I am so excited she is back in Utah. She was such a beautiful bride, and I also got to see some old familiar faces from the Raintree days!
We just got back from Panguitch, UT from the Barton family reunion. (Justin's side) It was fun to camp and hang out with everyone and meet more family that I never had in person. They are all so great and its so fun to be part of a huge awesome family. We were only there for a few days, but it went by fast and the kids stayed busy playing with all the other little cousins running around.
Update on Taylor... she is the funniest kid in the world. She sings CONSTANTLY, she is in gymnastics, loves to pray and read her scriptures (wooo so far so good) and she is just a great little girl. I am so lucky she was sent to our family!
Update on Skylar... She is now 10 months. She started walking at 9 months old. She is EVERYWHERE! Her and Taylor LOVE each other. They laugh and play all day long. She tries to repeat words we tell her, but she can say mama, dada, tayter, gma, papa and who knows what else. She is such a loving little girl who loves everyone. We love her so much and it's so fun to watch her grow!

Wirigs Take over Disneyworld!!

So Fair warning... lots of pictures, but its for my own record!

Last week we got back from a very fun-filled, exciting, and awesome trip to disneyworld... thank you to Justin's Parents!! IT was amazing. EVERYONE got to go...12 kids under 10... and 12 adults! WE all made it on the plane and 4+ something hours later we landed in Florida! We boarded the disney bus that took us to our disney themed hotel! We swam around and went to bed. The next morning bright and early we were all up and headed to the first park, Hollywood Studios. Fun. Kimball and Kara went to their version of american idol we got to go cheer kimball one of the final showdowns. I was chosen to be in the Indiana jones show... thank you fam for volunteering me... it was a fun day. The next day we went to magic kingdom which is basically disneyland on a bigger scale. The kids LOVED that and it was super fun to watch them and be with them. The next day we went to animal kingdom and went on an african safari. AWESOME!!! Seriously, I couldn't see any fences protecting us from all those things right by our cruiser. Then we went to Epcot for the other half of that day. We went back to magic kingdom the next day, and then our last day we spent touring the world back in Epcot. IT was very fun... VERY HOT and HUMID!! Holy cow! We woke up at 3:30 sunday morning to head out to the airport... so that was a couple hours of sleep that night at best. Boarded the plane and made it home safe and sound to new snow on the mountains and freezing cold weather! RIDICULOUS if you ask me! The dream is over and back to real life. We are so grateful for the chance we got to be with our whole Wirig family and the love we feel for everyone of them is... well its big ok. Big is the only word I know how to spell out of all the other words i Am thinking :) Thank you betty and kimball/mom and dad Wirig! It was awesome!
Taylor's Face on all these rides are priceless! She was FINALLY here and she couldn't have been more happy about it! She soaked it ALL up and was a trooper through it all!
