Sept 28, 2008 - New Boots

I am sorry I didn't post this sooner. These were Madilynne's new boots! And I think the picture shows it all!


Do you find it odd that we give a 1 year old an entire cake to eat and play in for fun? Oh well, Mason enjoyed it immensely.

Salsa Anyone?

This is what happens when 2 year old stops helping with yard work and mom and dad come searching for her in the house. All she could say is, "Helpin' Mom, Me Mess, SALSA!" I guess she takes after her Daddy, she has to do it the hardest and messiest way. Gotta love Madilynne!

Happy Birthday Mason!

ODE to MASON....You are such a big light in our family of five. Your glowing blonde hair, gorgeous blue eyes, and simple smile help light my sometimes dreary days. You are now sitting on your own, crawling/scooting, and climbing the stairs. Over the last 2 months you have made leeps and bounds with your gross motor progress. I thank my Heavenly Father for the light you bring to me each day. You babble tremendously and your favorite word is " Tika-tika-tika." I love to hear you laugh, my little "chubbas." I am thankful you are in our family each and every day! Happy Birthday Mason, my big one year old!

The Unitas with Friends & Family

We spent Labor Day weeked at Mirror Lake, near the top of the Uintas. We enjoyed the tall pines and gooey smores that came with the camp fire. Probably the best part was relaxing in God's country. Every time I am in the outdoors I feel more compelled to reflect on the wondrous creations God has created and why. I am given the time to reflect on my life and how to simplify more and find what truely matters most -- Family and Great Friends. Of both I am very grateful to have.

This is the Packard Family: Aaron, Tricia May, Kaylee, Ean, & Garrett.

I thought I should give a little update on my little fam and then try and finally download my 500+ photos on my photo card.

Mason's ear drums still aren't moving. We went to go see the Pediatric ENT this week and he has decide to wait on surgery for 2 more months. After the appointment we had a little excitement. My car was dead in the PCMC! Yeah, I was sitting in the parking lot w/ 3 kids @ nap time w/ a dead car. I called security and they tried to jump my car and that didn't work. I called for a tow truck and Paul. My prince in shining armor or ballastic gear came to my rescue to transfer 3 carseats and 3 tired kids into his police car. Then the tow truck took our car to the wrong auto shop to get fixed!

We also went to the State Fair this week. We had a great time and even rode the Big Yellow Slide. I don't think Paul has heard me squeal so much in a long time! Madilynne enjoyed the farm animals and Mitchell loved the games. Mason took it all in stride and really liked the birds.
