Kylee Jean Evans
born on November 30th @8:45 am 6lbs 2oz and 17 1/2in long.
She has been such a good baby, We are so grateful to have her in our family. She has been eating well and we are all adjusting to having a new baby around.
The girls love to burp her and get me the diapers and wipes they have been great helpers.
The hardest part for Emily is that I cant hold her and it makes her really sad. She is growing up fast and talks like crazy, she has discovered that movies are quite entertaining the beginning of the year I couldn't get her to sit and watch anything, but now she loves them. Mary Poppins is still one of her favorites we watch it at least 2 or 3 times a week.
Aubrey is enjoying school and can't wait to go to Kindergarten she loves to learn how to spell new words and sound them out. I am so proud of her accomplishments and think she will be reading very soon.
Luke, Finished his classes online to get his teaching certificate what a relief that is. He will take a couple of years off than work on his Masters. He is coaching Freshman and JV basketball right now, which so far he is enjoying and learning a lot from the other coaches. He doesn't like that there is so many games though. He is looking forward to Christmas Vacation.
I'm doing good I feel that I am recovering quite fast from my C-section, which is hard because I feel like I can lift things, however I haven't because I don't want it to be a longer recovery. Everything went well with my Surgery it was a quick process I was in there at 8:30 and had the baby at 8:45 and they were done putting me back together by 9:15am. Talk about a relaxing way to have a baby. I had a lot of help from my mom and dad, Luke's Mom and my sister-in-law Trina, As well as some friends and a great ward here in Duncan.
we truly feel blessed this holiday season to have such a wonderful new addition to are family.
We hope that you are all doing well and that you have a

Luke, Amy, Aubrey, Emily and Kylee

P.S. The pictures were taken
by my good friend Rachel,
they turned out great thanks again!!

Surprise, It's finally updated!!!

Hello to all of you out there that keep checking my blog having faith that that someday I will update it. The wait is finally over and you should really thank my cousin Marisa for being so kind and reminding me to get it done.

I guess I will just start off with Luke and go down the list, Luke has been truly blessed this year because he finally decided what he wants to do with his life. He is lucky enough to have got a job as a Spanish Teacher for Duncan High School. He is enjoying it so much which I am so glad about. Because of this job we are now moving to Duncan in a couple of weeks, I am use to a small town so it wont be to much of a shock for me, however all though Luke is excited to move he is a little worried about moving to a Village as he says "I lived in a city, moved to a town and now going to live in a Village" It will defiantly save us money since there is not even a grocery store that we can run to if we need something. We have to go to Safford. We are grateful for his hard work and all that he does for are family.

As for me, Well if you have not heard I am expecting our 3rd child in November. We have a scheduled C-section on November 30th. We are having another girl which we are excited about. I have been busy trying to get things packed and getting bigger and bigger everyday. I am going to gain more weight in this pregnancy, but for me that is a good thing. I have been babysitting a little girl on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays which has been helping us out. Babysitting is something I have always done and probably will continue to do. Over all I am feeling good but starting to get to the point where I am ready to have this baby.

Aubrey is such a cutie and his growing up so fast she is now 4 and will be turning 5 in November. She is going to Preschool Tuesday-Friday. She is enjoying that very much. She loves life and loves to hang out with her cousins. She is getting better everyday on her sounds of the letters and is trying to learn to read. Aubrey was in dance for the first time this year her first performance she got scared and didn't dance and set there and cried but for the real recital she got up there and performed, I was so proud of her. She is looking forward to her birthday this year because she is getting her ears pierced. They grow up so fast.. Emily Is now 2 1/2 she is talking like crazy actually is mostly singing. Can you guess what song she likes to sing. MARY POPPINS!! She has watched that movie everyday for about a month now. When she takes her naps she will fall to sleep watching and then will wake up and start crying because Mary Poppins went bye bye. What have we done she loves it!!! She goes around the house singing just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. I will have to record her and post it on another blog. It really is cute!!! She has learned to ride her tricycle and always gets on it and says by mom I'm going to work than she will drive down the hall then come back and tell me all about work. She loves to help me clean unlike her sister. she is growing up to be a really big helper.

When Aunt Tamra and I went to Alpine on a trip Luke stayed home with the girls and this is what happened. Emily had her first hair cut and the culprit was Aubrey. I can't believe how long her hair was before the scissors got to her. It is finally starting to grow back and getting to where I can put it two side pony tails. Oh the fun things sisters do to each other.

Anyways we are all doing good and we are very excited for are new adventure. hopefully this is a start of some more blogging so They are not so long each time. Hope everyone is doing good.

The most wonderful time of the year....

It is so true that the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. I love being with family and celebrating the birth of our Savior. We did a lot over the Holiday. We went to Mesa for Christmas and enjoyed a week of fun there with Lukes family it was nice having all of his brothers and sisters together that hasn't happened in a long time. Than we were home for a couple of days. Monday we went to Pomerene I enjoyed sometime with my sisters and Luke got to help my dad build a fence. Now we are home relaxing and going to enjoy the next couple of days at home before school starts again. Here is a few pictures of some fun things we did this holiday season...

Luke has always wanted a Steve Nash trading card so he was very happy when he found some in his stockings
Aubrey loves her bike:)
Can't have Christmas without the NATIVITY and FOOD!!!
Working hard all Christmas Eve to get everything together
I would recommend riding the tram to the suns game anytime. We had a blast at the game. It was all of Luke brothers and sisters and my brother Jason and his wife were there too.
Luke would be really sad if I didn't post this picture of the suns dancers

We took the kids to Jeepers they had so much fun riding all the rides:)

One of the nights we went to Todd and Des house and had yummy Mexican food and Smores
Hanging out with the family

Gingerbread houses we actually did it this year for Christmas instead of in July. Doing better this year

We hope you all Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

The Holidays, Here we come...

Here is the project for this month at Home Depot. Wagons, they had cookies and once again the girls got to see Santa. They are going to know them oh so well.
Emily loves her daddy!!!
We had are ward party which was a lot of fun. Emily got to meet santa for the first time and lets just say she loved him. The minute they gave her a candy cane she got the biggest smile on her face. It was pretty funny.
They had a station where you could decorate cookies. Emily liked that too. Can you tell?

Aubrey enjoyed being able to frost her cookie she thought it was pretty cool. They also had the nativity that the kids performed and writing letters to the missionaries. Music, and a lot of visiting. I am excited that my sister and her family our in our ward now. We have had lots of fun with them.
All the boys played a fun game of football of course they wanted it to be tackle football. There was only a little blood and tears but they all survived.
I think Aubrey thinks that you have to pose for every picture and she seems to like to tilt her head. oh well she is still cute as ever.
The day after Thanksgiving we all went to my parents house and helped them put up there Christmas tree!!! The kids did such a great job.
They were very careful and took it very serious!!
This was our yummy meal before we all digged in. It was all very good!!!
And of course the Three musketeers gotta love them. HEAR COMES TROUBLE!!!

Wow these are really out of order this is proof that we had a home cooked meal. I was behind the camera I really did help.
We really enjoyed having all the famiy together all my brothers and sisters got to come. It has been a great holiday season so far and can't wait for it to continue.
