We started the year off finding out we were going to welcome a baby to our home in September. Jackson Matthew Crowley was born September 13th, 2009! He has been such a joy to our family! He is full of laughs lately and is the best baby in the world! He never cries and is always smiling. Jackson is coming very close to rolling over and hates tummy time:) He truly has been such a blessing and has made the spirit at our home so wonderful. We can't imagine life without him!
Emmy started 2009 off with her 2nd birthday. She will soon be 3 and is not longer my baby:( Emmy has learned so much this year! She is now potty trained, sleeps in a big girl bed and is more independent everyday! She loves treats, her friends, cousins and shopping just like her mom:) Emmy also started dance this year. She takes a class once a week and loves every minute of it! We are so glad she is a part of our family and love her so very much!
Matt has also had a wonderful year! He is still with Encover as their controller and is enjoying everyday life with his job. Matt started working on the basement this year and is hoping to have it done by February. If you recall Matt got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last year. He has been such a trooper and is really taking charge of it! Matt has enjoyed himself this year while playing with the kids, playing basketball, going skiing, date nights and much much more. Matt has turned into such a "family man" we love him so much and appreciate all his hard work! He is the best dad and husband ever!
This year has been a year of growing for me. Physically ( my pregnancy) and mentally. As I mentioned earlier we started the year off with a pregnancy. Pregnancy this time around was hard but had such a wonderful outcome! I spent the majority of the year getting us ready for a new baby. It entailed potty training, bed switching, lots of shopping, decorating, reminiscing and much much more. I have made so many new friends this year and am so grateful for them. This year has not consisted of much drama and I am so grateful. I have loved date nights, girls night out, shopping,finishing our basement, making new friends, my church calling, watching and teaching my children... I live my life for my family! This year has been full of precious memories.
Matt and I hope to go on a family vacation and a couples vacation in 2010. We have really learned the importance of couples time this year and hope to keep up on it. We look forward to finishing our basement, putting Emmy in preschool, enjoying the precious moments of having a baby around the home and so much more. I know 2009 was wonderful because we chose to make it wonderful and because of our Heavenly Father. We are so blessed and are so happy we are raising our kids in the gospel. We hope 2010 will be a wonderful year!!!

Christmas Eve we started off with our usual tradition of opening our matching PJS!!! I must say the kids looked adorable:) Soon after, we went to a Christmas Eve party and Matt's sisters house and then went and opened presents at my moms. Emmy was SO SO SO excited for everything! Before the kids went to bed Emmy put out milk and cookies for Santa and told me to tell Santa she was a good girl:)
Christmas morning I was the first one up. I went and got Emmy. She did not know what to think at first but it came to her pretty quickly. She loved all her presents and kept saying "OH MY HEAVENS!!!" Matt surprised me with some boots, a new bra, some grass fabric softener and a copy of " The Family Proclamation" that I have been wanting. After all the excitement ended we were off to see family.
I am so grateful for my Savior and his birth! He helps me through life daily. I am grateful for the gospel and for eternal families!!! Christmas 2009 was one to remember:)

Thursday night the 3 girls got together as usual for girls night out and a gift exchange. We ate at California Pizza Kitchen and shopped, shopped and shopped! I love you guys!
Last week for playgroup we had a Christmas party. We made gingerbread houses, played and ate lunch. Emmy loved every minute!
A few weeks ago we were in our room and herd a big bang in Emmy's room. When we went in this is what we found. She hit her foot on the stool and did not even notice it! She is a deep sleeper to say the least:)

Today has been such a long day! I had to take my grandma around to run some errands. I knew my plates were a month expired but I have had NO time to get it taken care of. Not to mention I have a newborn and the last place I want to take him is the DMV.
It all started with my grumpy attitude this morning. It had been a long night and I was not in the mood to take my grandma to run her errands ( I love you grandma!). First on the list was taking her to a coin shop downtown. When we got there I paid for the parking and went in with her. When I looked out the window I noticed a cop standing next to my car and giving me a ticket. I ran out as fast as I could with my 2 year old and newborn in tow.
T-" Whats the problem officer"
Parking ticket ass- "Your plates are expired"
T- " I am so sorry. I just had a baby and have not had time to go to the DMV. Can you give me a warning and I will make sure my husband takes it in first thing tomorrow?"
PTA_ " No it is too expired."
T- "It is only a month expired. And I had a baby when it did. Please just give me a warning"
PTA"NO. IT is your fault for not taking care of it." he was very short and very rude!
T- "fine. Emmy come on lets go. He is a mean mean man" He was standing next to me as I said this and gave him a dirty look. He walked away and I was very upset. After getting the kids buckled and walking around to my door I don't know what came over me. I yelled as loud as i could " YOU ARE A PRICK!"
I am sure Emmy herd it even though her door was shut and I felt my heart melt. It was a bad parenting moment and I know it! I must say I don't know any cop who would be so mean to give a young mother with a 2 year old, newborn and grandmother a ticket instead of a warning. It was only a month expired and he was so mean! I have been upset about the whole situation all day!

Halloween was a blast. We took Emmy and Jackson trick or treating, had homemade chicken noodle soup,wastle, and watched scary shows. We decided to stay low key this year and just stay at home. It was so nice to just enjoy Halloween and not have to worry about family.
