Family Pictures...

It has been so long since we got a family picture taken we decided to go ahead and try and get pictures taken after the baby was born and before christmas. We had them done when Kyle was almost 3 weeks old. My friend Liz started a photography business and did an awesome job. She even went above and beyond and edited a few family pictures the next day so I could get christmas cards made. I am really happy with all the pictures! The link to her photography blog is below.

Christmas 2009

We had a great christmas this year! Here are a few pictures...
Christmas Eve...opening up their pajamas.

Christmas morning before all the chaos started

opening presents

Quincy and Abbey are only a year apart...but they couldn't be any more different!

They had been asking for a hoodie since their dad got a Utah one for his birthday. I was so glad when I finally found some online for a decent price...they are adult smalls so they will be wearing them a long time.

School Sing Along

This morning I little boys and I went to the school for the school sing-along. Quincy and her friend Kendyl played the marimba (pretty sure I butchered that...In fact not even quite sure if that is what it is called) as prelude music as all the parents arrived and the classes filed in. I only got the last half of this particular song...and it was the only song I recorded. She did really well.

After all the classes were in they all song holiday songs. The baby was a little angel the whole time and Jake was really good too!

Owen in his PJ's and Santa Hat...the only picture I got of him.

Abbey walking in with her class.

Quincy after she joined her the Santa Hat and braids.

Jake went and joined Quincy in her class and sang along with them. He really can't wait till he's in school with them next year.

and of course baby Kyle...

introducing baby Kyle...

Kyle Mack Chatwin
November 25th, 2009
11:19 pm
7 pounds 10 ounces
20.5 inches long

It took over a minute for the nurses to finally get Kyle to start breathing on his own...the longest, scariest minute in my life! Then after that I was able to hold him for 2 minutes and they took him away to the "special needs nursery". I wasn't able to see him for over 3 hours later (another long 3 hours), but was informed on my way to my room that he had moved to the normal nursery, which meant he was doing just fine. So a little bit of a scary start, but is now completely healthy.

No kids were allowed to visit the hospital, but they were able to come up to our window and see him. I was a little sad not to be able to get a family picture at the hospital, but I absolutely love this picture. The kids were so excited to be able to see their new baby brother.
Finally eyes open...barely.

Proud daddy!
This baby has been such a blessing to our family. Words cannot express...
