Merry Christmas!!

Hi everyone!

We didn't send out Christmas cards again this year.  For obvious reasons.  We aren't bringing in much money these days.  I will note a few highlights from this year.  Not all of them are happy but a lot of good came out of the bad things.

Kaylee started NURSERY at church which she loves and I have only heard good reports!
 Two sad things.  Both my Grandpa and my Grandma on my mom's side passed away while I was pregnant with Malcolm.  Grandpa in January where I was able to go to San Diego for the funeral.  Grandma I believe in April where I was too pregnant to go.  I already miss them a lot.  When I went to my Aunt's for Christmas I was thinking, "I wonder if Grandma and Grandpa are already here"  Then I remembered that that weren't going to be there.
HAPPY MOMENT! Malcolm Brent Sproul was born 5-7-2012!  He was/is the best baby!  Good Sleeper, layed back, and very happy!
He was blessed July 1st where a bunch of family came out to celebrate my little man!
Sad/happy- Kevin found out July 5 that his job was being eliminated and after reviewing and praying about our options we decided to move to my home town in San Diego.
 Kaylee turned 2!  I can't believe how fast she is growing up!
 We traveled to Utah because Allen became a bish and Britany became a bishop's wife!  Woah!

Halloween trick or treating with Aunt Claudia!  First time we trick or treated in our neiborhood!

I don't have a picture for this but Kevin and I started working with Staump Studios and I have 2 piano students set up for January 2nd!  YAY!

After MANY hours studying, Kevin took all 4 CPA tests and passed 3 of them the first time.  He will retake FAR at the end of January/beginning of February and hopfully be a CPA soon!  SO proud of Kevin and all he does to get us back on our feet!!

Oh and Dec 22 My little brother Charlie married his love Andrea!  It was a great day and a beautiful wedding. Congrats guys!

Also something I have been dreaming forever about is Claudia got engaged to a WONDERFUL man Julio Leon December 23!  I can't wait to help her plan!!  We love this couple and I am overjoyed that Julio will be joining our family!

This year has been crazy, but we feel blessed for family able to help us through this time and for the blessing we have.  Thank you all for your love and may 2012 bring you happiness, health, and success!

Still loving it

 So we are still loving it here.  It has been really nice living with my parents.  The amount of gratitude just grows as time goes by without a call about a job.  I wanted to share these pictures of Kaylee as I love her cute face!  It is funny how pictures of her become a little more blurry as she becomes more active.  She loves to move.  :-)

 We took these picture mainly for a Christmas present for my dad.  But they are fun to have and to share!  I think we were sneaky enough and I hope he likes his gift. :-)
I love both of these pictures!  I'm glad that we all get along so well.  We love you mom and dad!!

7 months~Malcolm

I started this post a few days after he turned 7 months but I was having problems with pictures not going where I wanted and such so now I am attempting again.

 So our little guy is now 7 months old!  He is healthy and happy.  Still no check up. One of the most exciting things that has happened is just a few days shy of 7 months he got his first tooth!  I didn't notice it until the day after he got his tooth.  But he got one! 

I love the above picture!!  He lightens up my life!  He is scooting all around and I feel like he will bust out crawling at any moment.  He is very smiley and happy.  He sleeps really good.  Takes 2-3 naps a day and about 10+ hours at night.  He would probably sleep more if Kaylee didn't turn on the light and make a bunch of noise when she wakes up.  Grrrrr...  But kids are kids. 

I hope that we can get him a check up soon.  His thrush is pretty much gone.  I am very curious to see how he is growing and I want to get his shots updated (we have an appt with WIC soon to see if we can get help)

Enjoy these pictures!
