Hazel Elizabeth Reese

 Hazel was born on September 4th at 4:16 a.m. and was 5 pounds 3 ounces.  We love her so much and she brings such a sweet little spirit into our house.  We are so glad she is here and that she is healthy and happy!  It was kind of a crazy day when she was born we were up in Logan and Zach, my Dad, and Josh were going to play golf and me Shana and Tommy were going to go to the zoo.  Well we were walking into the zoo and my water started leaking.  So we hurried to the hospital and they did a test to see if it was my water breaking and it came back negative so we left.  Zach and my Dad decided they wanted to go golfing again and me and Tommy were going to go with them, this time we just went to Layton.  Well Hazel really didn't want them to play golf because as soon as we got the golf carts and were ready to go my water broke for real.  So we hurried to the hospital again and got all checked in.  I was still barely dialated when we got there and it took a long time for me to get to a three but the next time they checked me I was at a six and then about an hour later I was ready to push.  I only had to push about three times and she was here.  Overall I was in labor for about 12 hours.  I was so glad that I was able to have a V-Back because it is so much better then having a c-section.  We are loving having her here with us though I really didn't expect her for about three more weeks she just wanted to come on her own time.

6 years

I cant believe we have been married for six years!  I am so glad that I get to spend eternity with Zach he is my best friend and is such an amazing husband and father and I don't know what I would do without him.   My Dad was so great and watched Tommy for us so we could go on a date.  We went to a movie and then Dinner at the Cooper Onion which was so Yummy!

I love this little boy so much!  He is so much fun right now I don't know when he got so big but he is all of a sudden so grown up.  These are just some random pictures from the last little while.

he decided it was best to stick his entire hand in the milk to dip his oreos

he loves helping me bake!

We have had so much fun at Lagoon this summer!

He wants to be just like his Daddy!

Riding his stick horse I made him, he loves it

He loves his bike though he hasn't quite gotten to where he can peddle on it yet

I did lots of canning this year and I am so excited about it!  I made lots of salsa and pickles, plum jam, and canned peaches.  We are so excited to have it all to eat all year!
