O.K. I know that the boys are too little to even know who Santa is....but really the point of it all is for Logan and I any ways. I mean why else did we drag them to the pumpkin patch to have some ability to say to our children that we did it. Plus, it is a chance to relive part of our childhood. So, we stood in line for 45 minutes to see Santa today. At least they will have the pictures.

Anniversaries and Other Grown-up Things:-)

Yesterday was Logan and I's 4th anniversary. First I would like to know who comes up with the tradition and modern gift ideas? I mean flowers and appliances COME ON!!

Anyways....Logan had to work all day and well we have a 6 week old so, this year we had to be a little creative. That is never a problem for Logan. At 10:00 the alarm went off on my cell phone. He had placed a note inside to a scavenger hunt!! It was fun to run around the house and find all of his notes. I love it when he thinks so creative.

After the scavenger hunt there was a delivery.....

Attached was a new book by Alexander Lloyd. I have been totally into fantasy books lately and with the snow and two kids reading is my one great escape. So, my gifts were wonderful. We went to the ward Christmas party for dinner (can't beat free pizza)!

As for my gift to him....welllll...since this is a G-rated blog I can not really elaborate. But, it is sufficient to say that it involved flowers, fruit and happened well after the boys were put to bed!

Christmas Festival

We went to the Festival of Lights up in Leavenworth. Washington. It was really fun to wonder around see all the lights. We had a great German dinner and bought Aaron a really cute hat:-)!

Katie and Lili came with us and we all had fun dancing and meeting Father Christmas.

Look at cute Lili's little hat!!

So sweet!!

This was a German dinner!! It was huge, but delicious.

The visit from father Christmas as really fun. Aaron just kept touching his silk robe.

The Family is Growing

Now I think there is only one more person of the family to introduce. That is our newest member....Andrew Burton Crozier joined our family on November 5, 2008. His labor was longer then his brothers, but no less speedy and intense at the end:-)!!!

He was 7lbs and 12 oz at birth, which seemed enormous.

He is a wonderful little man and we are so glad he came to our family.

He had a bit of a rough go of it at first and had to go back to the hospital, but he is healthy and growing well now. His biggest feat is being sat on or hugged too tight by his big brother.

A Really possibility!!!

Then there were 3

Aaron James Crozier joined our family on July 19, 2007. He was almost a month early. We were on our way to a doctors appointment, when my water broke in the parking lot. Logan asked if I could stop it:-)...which made me laugh...and the water to come out even faster.

So, after a very speedy labor (3 hours!), he joined the world at 6 lbs and 21 inches long!

He has grown SOOOOO fast over the last 16 months....Here are some of my favorite pictures of him...

Before There Were Kids

Before there were kids there was just us two and well two dogs. We had lots of fun traveling to B&B's and spent a couple months in Equador the summer before I got pregnant with Aaron.

One of our favorite places is Sandlake Bed & Breakfast...Logan took me there on our honeymoon and we went back twice after that. It is a super romantic place close to the beach, the inn keeper is wonderful and the food is divine. On one of our visits Logan had a picnic dinner made for us and we went to the beach to watch the sunset. It was windy, but wonderful.

Equador was another adventure that we got to accomplish before we had kids. I was able to go for a month before Logan came down. It was nice to spend more time practicing Spanish, but I missed my traveling companion. He came for the last several weeks of the summer and it was wonderful.

I will write more of our pre-baby adventures later....for now the real world calls!

How It All Began

So, there are two very different stories as to how this branch of the Crozier fa mily came to be.
Logan's and Mine....which is right is all in the perc eptions:-) What we do know is that we meet for t he first time in August of 2004 in the singles ward of our stake.

Our first official date was great! We had a picnic on top of a lookout of Portland, walked in the rose garden and had desert in downtown. Our second date was him helping my mother move! By then I was starting to think there might be something to this funny, light hearted and very hard working man.

Well, they say the rest is history...Logan and I were married on December 17th, 2004. It was a beautiful ceremony in a little white church in the Sellwood area of Portland.

Our Honeymoon was fabulous. We spent 9 days traveling down the Oregon coast, Logan planned everything and he is so romantic. We stayed in B&B and at state parks. The last couple of days over Christmas, we stayed in a cabin that was just the most romantic place on Earth.

When we got back, we settles into life in our little condo in West Linn. I taught school at El Puente and Logan worked for a warehouse shipping company.

We were sealed in the Portland Oregon Temple on September 4th, 2005.

The Beginning

So, while I am bored on bed rest I thought that I would start a family blog. It seems like a good idea for now, and we will see how it goes once baby number 2 is born!! Life is very good right now and we are feeling very blessed!!!
