Cache and Cai are here!

Yes they are finally here, actually a week ago just getting around to posting some pics.
Cache Dylan and Cai Justin were born May 18. Cache weighted 5'9 and Cai weighed 5'7. I had to have a c-section because they were breech. My water broke at 2:45 in the morning and they were born at 6:15 and 6:17. We feel so blessed because they were only 35 weeks and neither had to go to the NICU. They are both healthy and so dang cute!! This is our first family picture of the "SEVEN" of us. pretty crazy, yeah that is Ryker being himself. Tarek is not so sure about the whole baby thing, he just kinda ignores them but is nice to them. The other two are smitten.
They are definitely fraternal. They look nothing alike at all it is pretty funny. Cache (left) is kind of the black sheep of our family he doesnt look like the other kids really at all. He has tons of dark hair. It makes it nice to be able to tell them apart so easily.
This is right after we had them. I was totally drugged and couldn't believe we really just had two babies. Jon was awesome taking care of me and making sure the babies were ok. It all happened so fast and unexpected that we were so happy everything worked out and went well.

Happy Mothers Day!!

I just wanted to let the "moms" in my life to know how much I love them! Mothers Day always seems to be such a crazy day that I don't get the time to really think about moms and all they mean to me!

First and foremost I wanted to tell my mom how much I love her. I am so lucky to have her as my mom. She is honestly the most supportive person in my life. I know she will always be there when I need her. My family is super close and supportive of each other. I know that it is because of my mom it is that way. We rarely have drama and when there is it is said and done in minutes. I have a hard time asking for help ever, and she is one of the few people that recognizes it and steps up. I love spending time with my mom she is one of my favorite people in the world. I love you MOM!
I know it is cheesy having a picture of my graduation but it is the only picture I have of both my mom and my mother-in-law. They are both so suppportive of me and my family. We are so lucky they both live close and have them so involved in our kids lives. Two Awesome Grandmas. We are lucky because our two families get together and get along. Bob and Janel cooked us and my parents dinner yesterday for Mothers Day. It was fun to be with both of our families and the kids love it. I love you guys.
Last but not least is one of the greatest examples in my life! My Grandma! She is the most amazing person ever. Between her 6 kids (and tons of grandkids and greatgrandkids) and Merrill (her cute hubby) 6(?) kids and they keep very busy. You would never know, they come to nearly anything kids birthdays, baptisms, etc. My favorite thing about my grandma is she just loves and accepts everyone for who they are! She does not judge people or stereotype, just embraces and welcomes anyone that may come. She has had many trials in her life, and is so amazing. All of our family is lucky to have her as head of the family. This picture is of our yearly St. George trip and of course they come every year. Even at New Years they always have our silly string fight to ring in the new year and she is right in the middle. She is too much fun. I love you Grandma.
