Stovall Reunion Pic's

Yummy Cafe Zydeco in Helena.

Grandma Stovall with Esme.  Both look pretty happy!

Cabin Pictures

It was fun to go visit Grandma and Auntie Ann.  Joss picked a bunch of buttercups, and it was fun for the sisters and the babies to spend some time in the sun with those we love so much!  Esme is trying to eat the buttercups...

Look what we got today!  He is a German Shorthair Pointer. We are not totally sure on his name yet, but so far Gunner is working out pretty well.

We had a little birthday party for Sophie that included watching Toy Story 3D and having cupcakes.
Here is Sophie enjoying the frosting! 

Shelby got in on the frosting action too.

Blowing out the candles.  I wonder what a 3 year old wishes for?

The cake says Happy Birthday Sophie!  She insisted on eating a banana before she had cake so she has a full mouth for this picture!

We are going to have round 2 with this cake tomorrow at Nate and Tiffany's.  If the cake makes it that long....

Mom and Dad in Iowa

YAY!!!  mom and dad came to visit us in iowa!!!  we had a lot of fun!!!  we got to see all sorts of fun church history sites.  the fist one was winter quarters in omaha.
this is me and mom reenacting the statue behind us. this picture was taken in the winter quarters cemetary.
we also got to go to carthage.  this is carthage jail where joseph smith was martyred.
then we spent a whole day in nauvoo!!!  it was very pretty and a lot of fun!!! 
we stayed the night in this super cute little cabin.  it looks small, but it could sleep six.  and it was all decked out in old western type decor.  even our bathroom appeared to be an outhouse:)
this is charlee all dressed up as a pioneer.
and this is joseph smith and emmas first home in nauvoo.  joseph, emma, and hyrum's graves are located just on the left side of this house.

well, we had lots of fun with our awesome visitors.  jett absolutely loooved being out and about with grandma and grandpa, but charlee was more interested in expressing her terrible two's!!!  good thing we have awesome parents that are patient and can put up with it all:)

Latest O'Leary pics

We haven't posted in awhile.  I thought I'd put up some of the latest pictures.

I never seemed to have my camera during the good photo ops while we were in Seattle for the blessing/sealing.  At least I did get a few pictures and I'm glad my lens was able to get all of Esme's legs in.

I love the way Jackson waves-
I'm not sure what happened here:
Happy Birthday Olive (you all remember that we have a third child - now we have the pictures to prove it)
This is showing off Joss' mad photography skills:
Coolest kids at the pool (and that's not just because they were the only kids at the pool):

A weekend in Helena

Take a look at this TRASH fish!  And he was so excited about it.....

Now, feast your eyes on this BEAUTY.  Voted the best fish caught all day.

But this picture, takes the cake.  Or maybe the marshmallow.  So stinking cute!  We love our family!

A few last pictures

I haven't posted in a while, but I have been taking a few pictures. 
When we found out Max had cancer we took him out to get a few last pictures.  As soon as we let him out of the car he immediately grabbed a stick!  It was very cute. He couldn't really chase it, but he wanted to try so we played for a few minutes.

Our neighbor took this picture right before we left our house for the last time.  It was a little weird driving away knowing that we won't ever be back to this house again. 

My friend Jaylyn turned 30 right before we left so we had a big party for her.  The theme was the year she was born (1980).  I found a turquoise silk jumpsuit, with shoulder pads I might add, and a pair of white-wash, tapered jeans in Reid's size all at Salvation Army.  So much fun!
