So, I promised that I would blog at the end of every month and for once I am actually going to follow through with this blogging game. Anyway, November was pretty low-key for our little family. Both of my parents celebrated b.days, Thanksgiving, and there was also the BYU/UTAH game, but I don't have pics from those days yet - I need to go and steal them from my mom and sister. Anyway, in attempts to hold true to my blogging promise I am going to go ahead and post some pics of the one November event I did take pictures at...
On November 1st, we took Mo golfing! I don't know who had more fun Jason or Mo. They were so cute together. Mo was an old-school golfer for Halloween (see previous post), and Jason made him his own little set of wooden golf clubs that we took along. He loved every second of it! Jason loved it too, I could just see the excitement on his face as they were golfing knowing that this was the first of many father-son golfing outings.

I know that I am not the best blogger (this topic seems to be included in each one of my posts), but I have just decided that at the end of the day blogging is one of the last things I want to do. Per the request of some family and friends that live far away, I will do my best to give a monthly update of the bigger things that happened. Here goes for October, and hopefully I will keep my word and update the end of November - but don't expect anything before then :)
I know this was actually the end of September, but I had to include Women's Conference - IT WAS SO AMAZING THIS YEAR! We got tickets and went up to the conference center. Our husband's were great sports to watch all the littles so that we could go have a fun girls night!
THRILLER - Every year my family goes to the Thriller, put on by the Odyssey Dance Company. This year was the first year that they performed in Provo at the Covey Center for the Arts - usually we go up to Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake. it was funny this year because the fire alarm was set off by one of the dance props that smoked too much and so we had to evacuate the entire building and wait for the Provo City Fire Marshall to come and check things out. FUNNY, but we still had a great time.
Peter (Jason's little brother), went into the MTC this month. He was called to serve in the Philippines Bacolod Mission. We have already received a few letters and he sounds like he is doing really well. He will be in the MTC until December 23, and then he will head to the Philippines.
GO COUGARS! Our good friends Tawny and Andrew were nice enough to get us tickets to a BYU game this season. Andrew is on the team - #88, he plays tight end. He is a fabulous player and we enjoy watching him at the games or on TV. He even scored the first Touchdown of the game! It was so much fun to go - THANKS GUYS :)
Tucker (JC and Beth's little man) turned ONE! He is the oldest of the little threesome (Mo, Loren, and Tucker) and it is crazy to think that it has been a whole year since we were all pregnant together. Lolo and Mo will have their first b-day before we know it! We are so happy that T-Man is here and that he and Mo are good little friends already. We love you Tucker!
Family Pictures. We took these at my parents house the other Sunday. I thought that I would post a few.
Halloween! Mo went as an old school golfer. His daddy even made him him his own little set of wooden golf clubs. He looked so cute. Jason went as a cowboy. At the bank their theme was cowboys and indians - I think he went a little overboard, especially with the mustache (at least he returned the Wranglers, no lie - he actually bought some).

It's true, he really is adorable! Jason and I stayed up late the other night watching home videos since Mo has been born and I just found myself crying. He is getting so big, and his personality is showing so much. He is just the happiest little man ever. He is now 6 months (almost 7) old. My sister came over the other night and took these pictures... isn't she AMAZING??? Aren't I so lucky to have such a beautiful and talented sister? THANKS KENZ!!! Not only was it great to have Kenzie take the pics, but it was nice to hang out with her (and her husband was sweet enough to babysit her girls for us too). I couldn't just post the three so you will also find a few slideshows of my other favorites. We love our little man and are having so much fun! Also, about this blogging thing, no more promises I will get better because every time I promise I don't blog for months - maybe we'll get lucky one of these days and I will figure it out!

Right now he is really 4 1/2 months old, because I am the world's worst blogger. Anyway, I am going to make this short and sweet and just post some new pictures of Mo and his cousins. My sister took these a few Sundays ago and I love them! And as always, I promise to get better at this blogging thing :)

Mo was so good on this day... I'm sure everyone with babies can relate - but I was so nervous that he was going to be a little sad the whole day. He proved me wrong, not only was he amazing for the blessing, but he was amazing for the brunch after :) Here are a few more pics from the day... didn't he look so cute? Everyone kept saying that he reminded them of the cute little old temple workers. Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone who came to be a part of his special day!

So... today is Mo's 2 month B.day and I can't believe it! Time has flown by, it feels like we just brought him home!!! Everything is going so well, and we are having more and more fun everyday. These pics were taken a few weeks ago - but I thought they showed many sides of Mo! Happy 2 months Baby Mo - We LOVE you!

We got the rest of Mo's pictures back and these are two of my favorites! Jason took a lot of fun props that ended up working out really well! The smile on his face with the golf ball made Jason so excited, he knows that they will be good golfing buddies one day! Jason also had the idea for the basketball, I think that it turned out great too! I will post a slide show of the rest of the pics later for you all to see! :)

A week ago we went and had some pictures taken of Mo and here is the first one I received! We should be getting the rest of them by the end of the week, and I will definitely post them ASAP. Michele Reyes was the photographer and she did an excellent job, I would recommend her to anyone (you can check out her website www.michelereyes.com). Anyway... there will be more pictures to follow this one soon, oh and isn't he PERFECT???

Well he came a day early but our Little Mo was born February 4th at 5:05 pm. He weighs 8 lb. 3 oz. and is 20 1/2 in. long. The delivery went well (15 hours total) and both Momma and Mo are doing great. It is impossible to put into words how great it is to finally have him here. From the pictures you can see he is pretty much the cutest baby to ever be born, and we just gush over him day and night. We are so greatful to be parents and are thrilled to be able to bring him home to our own little house. Even though he is only a few days old we feel like he's been with us all along. We want to thank everybody who has shown their love and support for us and would welcome anybody who wants to come by and check out Mo in person.

What's up everybody? It's Jason here, and I decided to throw up a post of my own in this tangled blogging web we weave. For most of you who know me, one of the things I love most in life (next to Ari and golf) is having sweet clothes, shoes and hats. So in anticipation of the arrival of our little Mo, I decided to get him started on the right track. While from the start he will already have a love for Ari like me and a love of golf will come eventually, from the pictures you will see he is hooked up to be just like his old man! It has been a lot of fun to find little miniature versions of things I have. First off is a pair of killer velcro Vans, followed by some kickin' Frye boots. Next is a classic Yankees hat, followed by my favorite True Religion jeans (you can spoil your kids a little can't you?). We just barely got him this sweet pair of Keen sandals and finished up with a fresh pair Adidas shell toes. In addition to this stuff, we also have a ton of Nike/Jordan hats and shoes as well as Ari having him hooked up from Gap for life! He will for sure be a stylin' dude. I am super stoked to be a dad and can't wait for Mo to come so we can roll in our gear together.

The nursery is finally complete... that's right, my handsome and handy husband finished! After one last babies r us run the other day... all the checklists are complete too. ALL WE NEED IS BABY MO! We are getting so excited and we can't believe how fast it has gone, hopefully these last few weeks continue to fly by too. We are so ready to meet our little man, and we can't wait to see what (who) he looks like! Anyway, I am really trying to get better at this blogging thing, and hopefully soon I will be able to fill it with pictures of Mo. We will keep you all posted over the next couple weeks with news of the big day!
