Ward Weird-o-s

Here we are on our Saturday Night...what did you do?



Maybe this should be our Christmas card picture this year!!!!


CJ and Clay came home with these glasses after making a Saturday run to the commissary!!! Fun times.

Girly Preparations!!!

Laura and Clay had a busy week putting together the nursery... we felt it was time to get the girl preparations going....here is the result of our labors... PINK and BROWN!!!!

The yellow roses are the roses Clay gave Laura when we found out we were expecting this baby! The picture was painted by Laura's Mom and it hung in Laura's room growing up.

The crib....we got the bedding set from the baby shower!! Thanks Nana and Papa..it is perfect!

Soft comfy chair that rocks...perfect for those late night feedings.


Changing table and frame that Laura put together!

Laura made these boxes from baby wipe boxes covered in left over fabric and ribbon....they turned out really great!

The 30 week Blooming Belly!!




January is coming quickly....aghhhh

Visitors and Baby shower!!!

Laura's Parents, sister and friend came to visit last weekend. We had a great time with Nana, Papa, Julie and Heather. While they were here, Laura's friend, Megan, threw her a baby shower! We got a lot of cute little girl things!!! The boys wouldn't let Papa out of their sight....when we went anywhere....they made sure that Papa was squeezed into the back seat with them! Now that they are gone, we have the constant question...."When are we going to Papa's house." We just love visitors!






The boys enjoying Papa close by....literally!


Mom, Laura, Julie and Heather

Laura and Megan (who is expecting in December)...it has been fun sharing the pregancy journey with a friend!

Alaska Adventure

Clay headed off to Alaska for a week...and when he returned he brought souveniors!!!








Laura's never had the individual toe socks...but she has to admit...they are pretty comfy!!
Thanks Clayboy!!!

Is it Halloween Again?

What 2 year olds do while Mom is cleaning up the kitchen from dinner....dress-up! He promised to only draw on the paper....well, apparently when the paper was full, he went to his face and then the hands....and now he calls himself the cat! Oh Preston...

FHE with 2 boys...

Happy Halloween Haunting

Our Finished Product! The boys had fun picking out what kind of face they wanted on their pumpkin! Mom's arm was sore after we were done....but we had fun!
Cowboy CJ!
Batman Preston!
Pumpkin Preston in the leaves having some outdoor fun!
Ghost CJ, scarying everyone and practicing his "BOO"
Pumpkin Preston!
Cute Boys! Thank goodness for dressup clothes, because the boys changed their minds as to what they wanted to be for every event! They were one thing for school, another for the ward trunk or treat, and yet something different for the actual Halloween night! But, as long as the kiddos are happy, we are happy! Happy Halloween!

We were all very excited about OUR own 3 pumpkins that we were able to grow in our little garden out back! Yipee....we were thrilled!!

During Clay's week off after getting home from deployment #4, the crew decided to head for the border (Idaho/Washington) and check out one of the corn mazes in the area. It was lots of fun running around in there and trying not to get lost. Even with a map it was a bit challenging, but we survived for the most part. The only casualties were CJ and Preston, who found it much more interesting to sit on Mom and Dad's shoulder's in order to look over the corn and beyond. There was a kettlecorn stand at the corn maze called 'CJ's Kettlecorn', so even though it was getting close to (or pretty much past) the boys' bedtime, we did enjoy a few sweet morsels of delight on the way home.....in honor of CJ of course.

Tickled PINK

Yes, it is true....we are having a little girl enter the Ward family! Everyone is sooo excited! To share the news with the boys, Clay and Laura bought our first doll - and gave it to the boys. We are hoping to practice being gentle and soft with a girl before the actual one arrives....so far, we have found the baby girl (whom the boys have named Dora), thrown, pulled, undressed, smothered in kisses, hugged, taken on walks, and pretty much tortured in every way...hopefully they get better in the upcoming months....oh boy!

The 20 week Prego Belly


I thought this picture was just too cute of Preston showing off his little belly too!

Brotherly Love

Our cute boys out "Workin" as they call it! They just looked so cute in their rain boots and hats!




Girl Time

Beware! This is what happens when you get too many sisters in one house! Becky was doing Laura and Nicole's hair so it would be curly! However, in order to have cute curls in the morning, we needed to have crazy little buns the night before! My camera's battery died, so I don't have pictures of the cute curles...

Stayin' with the Cousins

CJ digging for dinosaur bones at Thanksgiving Point dinosaur museum.
All the kids in front of some scary looking ancient dinosaur shark thing.
Preston....loved the chickens! He would go out and talk to them, feed them, etc...he was fascinated by them and wanted to bring them home!
2 sisters with Matching cars...who knew!

Nicole and Lacey having some extra bonding time!
Crazy bath pictures with cousins!

We Love WATER

Laura and the boys stayed an extra few days with Corey and Nicole's family, the kids were having too much fun together (and honestly so were the adults....) that we just couldn't go home yet! There is a really neat little park with a water "stream" that the kids can play in....the kids loved it. It was perfect, not deep (so no drowning), rocks to climb on, sprinklers that spray, etc. The kids loved it!
