And Now Presenting Mr. Prince William Evan Hoge

Introducing our new little addition to the fam..William Evan Hoge. He is THE best! We are so in love with him. Brooklyn is adapting surprisingly well and we love her even more today!...besides the fact that she's been a little sick so we've been trying our best to keep them separated but it's not working so well. We are all doing good besides the fact it was a crazy labor and delivery almost not making it to the hospital in time and with pretty much no epidural since he came about 10 min. after I had it and I was stoned on Ambien..NOTE: always opt for the epidural...ALWAYS and don't take Ambien and try to walk around Walmart for a few hours...picture this....9 mo preg., stoned on Ambien..stumbling around walmart...having hard core contraction....very funny to watch, I can imagine. makes for a good story too which I'm all about. ANYWAY, William is doing great. He is way healthy and sleeps like a champ...for now! Thanks for all the calls and well wishes and special surprises in the mail!!:) I am still counting all the wonderful blessings and tender mercies that have flowed into our house these last few weeks! We are so blessed and have so much to be thankful for this year. PS: pictures are very much out of order...ENJOY!!...and try to make sense of them all!
My little crew!!
Leaving the hospital!!

My little lifesaver and Brookies #1 nurse!! Waiting on her hand and foot while she had a fever while I was in the hospital. It couldn't have been better for me!

ABZ surprised me by showing up at the hospital with a plethora of gifts..including this little bundle Lucy..Brookie calls her Sucy.

My little bundle!! THE END

Wild Thing

I ventured on over to the big OC to see Hulietta before I have my little babe and won't be able to travel much. Julia had a great B-day party for her son Griffin with the "Where the Wild Things Are." Brooklyn was a perfect fit being the little monster that she is. We had a great time!!

Here we are at the pumpkin patch posin'

This is my fave!! Deep in thought chowin' down on a cake pop Julia made.

Griffin and Brooklyn had a fun time playing together. Brooklyn loved him. She will be a great older sister!!

pumpkin' carvin'

We attempted to carve pumpkins tonight and it actually worked. Who likes Evan's wolverine chops, raise your hand?

Brooklyn loved getting all the "goopies" out.

This little girl

This little girl is almost 2 yrs old. She does not hold still so this is about as good of a pose as I could get.

Dear Evan

Dear Evan,

While you are away hunting and gathering...Brooklyn has a few things she needs to tell you.

#1: I cried today...can you see my tear? Oh yes and mom does my hair weird when you aren't around...why is that?
#2: This is why I cried...I hurt my toe....see it! Mom kissed it better and put a Bandaned on it. I took it off and then made mom put another one on it and requested a "few" pieces of candy for "medicine."

#3: Mom is bugging me.

#4: My toe hurts and mom won't let me go play with Addie until I take this dumb picture...please come home soon. I miss you! Love, Brookie

Eastern Idaho weekend

We had a great time in Eastern Idaho last weekend for Zack's wedding. It was fun to hang out with my fam and cousins. Brooklyn loved her g-ma and g-pa. She loves talking about everyone around her...zack, tammie, jesse, kato, macky-boy, kiss...on and on. We went out to my great aunt and uncles to see the llamas and peacocks and Brooklyn LOVED it. Here is a pic of one eating right out of our hands.

This girl cannot hold still for a picture.

We had a great time at our family reunion. Especially the horse buggy/cart that I couldn't get this little girl off of. SHE LOVED IT and now loves horsey's. Lil Reese and Brooklyn were front and center the whole time.

Brookie and Daddy enjoying the Paris Parade.

Her hair is getting longer. I think this is the last of these hairdos because they won't stay up anymore.

Thanks Clarke

My friend Clarke hooked us up with some divine skull candy awhile back. Brooklyn loves "her" headphones!

brooklyn and the stakeout!!

I got a little carried away with posting pictures...just don't worry about it. You know the person that shows 20 pics of the same thing?.......well..that's me...

This one is my top fave!
So amidst the litte "walk" in the park, lo and behold i see a few coppers quitely surrounding by. I tell Ev about the coppers around us....cuz you know i love the spy/stealth mission. We were the only people in the area and then all of the sudden....boom....coppers bust out their guns from all directions, yelling serious obscenities and take down these 2 guys up in the bushes....there were about 15 of them...of course we were lovin' it and don't hesitate to gawk and take can see the guy up in the tree! Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do...what a way to spend my lovely sabbath day....fightin' crime. Thank goodness Brookyn was there, I have to start her out early with these things. I love how i think I was actually part of the whole "bust" It's as close as i can get so i don't mind daydreaming.
