Goodbye family! 
Once again, we had to say Goodbye to our families. Always a hard thing to do. 
But, sooooo soooo soooo glad I got to meet my new niece, Evie Faye Gardner! She is so adorable. My girls have been waiting to meet her, and finally got to see her for a few hours before taking off to Baton Rouge! 
Can't wait to get home so I can have time to play with and hold her! 
Off to Baton Rouge we go, and will post about our new home soon! 


It just doesn't get much better than Lake Powell! 
I have gone to Lake Powell every year of my life until... I got pregnant with Kaleigh! I have never been since (almost 5 years). I got lucky having my Uncle Larry invite me to go this year and being able to change our flights to Baton Rouge! 
We had sooooooo much fun! 
So happy to find out I can still water ski and wake board! My tubing skills have gone down and need some more work though:(  
Kal and Emma loved it as well! I think they bring it up everyday asking when we get to go again! (We might need to give the beaches some time to get new shells on them for my children to collect again! I think we brought all of them home with us!)
Thank you Larry and Gina! Feel free to invite us anytime!

Taking off Again!!!

We are taking off again! Trev got accepted to LSU for a PhD! (And also got accepted to Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies in Chicago!) We will move to Baton Rouge for him to attend LSU, and he will also do the other degree at the same time whenever he has time!!! If anyone knows anything good about this place, please tell me! If you only know bad things, keep quiet! I am trying really hard to convince myself to be happy about leaving Utah and everything we love again!

The "Y"

Enjoyed our Memorial Day hiking the "Y" with Britney and Justin's family! Such a beautiful view of Utah Valley! Love this place!!!!

Happy Birthday to our Wild Child!!!!

Happy Birthday to Emma!!!! 2 years old! Wow, how time flies by!!!!!!! Emma has been such a blessing to us this last 2 years! She was one hard baby for her first year, but made up for it this 2nd year! She is such a happy and energetic child! I don't think a day goes by that we don't get a really good laugh out of her! She is so smart and fun! Love this girl to pieces!!!!!!!! ( I promise that her hair doesn't look like this in the mornings! She is a well dressed child with cute hair for about an hour of the day, but after that she changes clothes and rips hair our! Just need to make it clear that I don't purposely have her look this way in all of her pictures!)

Hatch Family Camp Out!!!

We usually go on our Hatch Family camp out at one of the CamperWorld parks that Trevs Grandpa owns! Well, they parks were totally full, so we decided to camp out in Grandma Neice, and Grandads backyard! It ended up being sooooo much fun! We got there and set up our tents, had a great dinner, made smores at the campfire and went to sleep! Woke up to an awsome breakfast and a little play put on by the little girls! We all really enjoyed ourselves and cant wait until next years adventure!!!

Heaven just got better!

My sweet Grandma just passed away 2 weeks ago. She will be very missed.
She was an amazing women. 95 years old and living on her own, caring for herself until the last month of her life. It was really hard to watch such a smart, kind, and fun Grandma leave us. However, it is so comforting knowing where she is and knowing that she is so happy to be with Grandpa and many other loved ones! She was ready to go, and I am sure she is so happy right now!

4 years old!!!

I can't believe I have a 4 year old! Time just flies by too quickly! It is such a great age though!
Kaleigh has been obsessed with watching family home videos of herself when she was little. (We honestly watch the same ones a few times a day. aaahhhhh!!!) It is fun to watch how much they change and how quickly it happens. So fun to look at some memories with her though! She is such a good little girl!
We love her so much!

Christmas fun for 2011!!!

Christmas morning!!! So much fun having little children to watch on Christmas! It is really what makes your Christmas so much fun and special!!!

We got to go on a fun sleigh ride with the Gardner family!!! It was really fun, (except for Emma crying the whole time:) All the children loved riding behind the horses and listening to the bells around their necks!

Kimball Christmas party! The one thing Kaleigh looks forward to every Christmas now is doing the tu-a-tah (spelling?) which is a crazy weird funny dance we do every year!

And of course.... the gingerbread houses!!!! So much fun for everyone, and a great tradition! The only bad thing is that eventually, one day, we have to get rid of the houses and the girls are heart broken!
A great Christmas overall for the Hatch Family!!!
